Live Abundantly (Part 2 of 2)

Do not dare to miss the first part.

 

Continuation:

 

Resentment, jealousy, envy and self-pity interfere with the free-flow of abundance

If you are jealous or envious of someone, it implies that what they have is not available for you to have also.

If you find it difficult to let go of these feelings, Bach flower remedies may help. Try the remedy ‘willow’ to counteract resentment and self-pity, or try ‘holly’ for envy, jealousy and greed.

Forgiving those that have wronged you is part of living abundantly

Holding on to your anger, justifiable it may seem, keeps you stuck in the past. I prevents you going forward into a better future.

If it’s difficult to let go of your negative feelings, try writing a letter expressing all your anger, hurt or envy. Write until you can write no more, and then burn it.

Being able to receive from other people

Being able to receive is healthy, but many people find it difficult. You may need to practice receiving. Think of the pleasure you get in giving. By not receiving generously you are denying other people the pleasure of giving.

Realize that in general ‘good luck’ plays a very small part in people’s life

If you put your faith in good luck, then you have to accept the possibility of bad luck too. People who put their faith in ‘good luck’ often spend their lives waiting for things to happen. People who don’t believe in luck go out and make things happen.

Believing that there is enough money, food, love, etc.

The world is enough to meet everyone’s needs to live abundantly. It can be very hard to believe when faced with war and starvation in the news.

The truth is, a lot of this anger and need is because people who have do not believe they have enough.  They substitute money and food for all the other abundance of life.

Do your part to correct that imbalance and start living a life that recognizes there are inequalities and shortages. Rather, we can correct that so we all have what we need.

Live Abundantly (Part 1 of 2)

Many of us are bowed down by life – stressed, short of time, tired, on a treadmill. We know that this isn’t the way to live, but not knowing how to free ourselves up to live more fully, more abundantly. There are simple things we can do. They don’t take time or money, but they take a change of attitude.

Below are the things we can do

Be totally financially honest

If you are not, this implies that there is not enough for you to have everything you need without dishonesty.

Create a vacuum so that more good things can flow into it

Don’t fill your life up with things you don’t really want. Ask yourself if you want each thing before you buy it. Don’t have abundant rubbish. Live abundantly by seeking out the things and experiences that work for you in your core being.

Tithing is often associated with religion, but it is also possible to tithe in a non-religious context

This seems a really important aspect of living abundantly. Every time you freely give money away, you are implying that you are confident that more will come. This is a BIG positive affirmation with a lot of power behind it.

The traditional amount is 10% of your income. I’ve recommended this to lots of people. Then they’ve told me that when they do this, magically, they seem to have more.

I started with 10% but now I’ve increased it. I’ve discovered that the more I give away the more I get back. It then results to a happier and more abundantly I live.

Being grateful for what you already have

Focusing on the good that is already in your life. It’s easy to think about what you don’t have. But spend some time each day thinking about what you do have. Start each day by thinking of 5 things that you are grateful for – and express this out loud.

Secrets For Stress-Free Living (Part 3 of 4)

Do not miss out the first and second part.

 

Continuation:

 

Being in the present moment is the only way you can make an emotional connection to what it is that you want. Therefore begin the process of it becoming attracted to you in future present moments.

This type of emotional alignment cannot be achieved when your thoughts are in the future or past. “But how much do I need to be in the present moment? I have all this stuff to do.”

You must be in the present moment to have enough fully-loaded, pleasurable, positive full body feelings. Being present will begin the process of its automatic attraction to you. Living with your thoughts at a future or past moment in time, is entirely redundant in the process of being free of stress, and attracting what you want into your life.

You can never be enough to

You can never be sorry enough to change this problem situation. It is only when you love yourself that you have that love to radiate to others. When you are allowing the abundance to flow to you, then have the ability to gift it to others.

Giving your energy in any form to others, is the fastest route to the emotional poorhouse. Whether it is love, forgiveness, agreement, or any energy, when your cup is not already brimming over. If you want to help others, you must first help yourself.

Others easily see through empty gestures, compliments, or favors; and, such gestures only hide you from your own emotional impoverishment/malnutrition. They are not useful, and serve no purpose in enhancing your life or others’.

Be selfish enough to line up with your intentions

This is important because it is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer others. If your own energy tank is not full, you have no business looking after the tanks of others.

Secrets For Stress-Free Living (Part 2 of 4)

Please read the wonderful first part.

 

Continuation:

Happiness is your meta-experience when thinking about something that brings you such pleasure. Happiness cannot be experienced by the senses directly, only pleasure can.

Focus your life on having more now-moment pleasure experiences, rather than accumulating reasons or things to be happy about.

Stay connected to source

Find your own personal way to stay connected to your higher consciousness (the feeling you). For many this is meditation, music, song, etc. Why are we so attracted to parks? water? nature? wildlife and animals? We have awareness on some level that we are part of a much greater collected consciousness, something else, something higher than us.

Some people may be partially disconnected from it, but you can never fully disconnect from it. Notice that the word emotion is e + motion. Notice the connections of levels even on a linguistic level. Did you know that elephants are one of the very few creatures other than humans who cry tears of emotion? And when was the last time you saw an elephant running?

They adapt or has the ability to release emotions from tears in the same way humans do. People are attracted to source because we recognize that’s where we want to be. We want to have those feelings, we want to experience that energy. Energy, just by being in its presence, makes us feel better about ourselves.

Live in the moment

We only have access to our full personal power in the present moment. This is practicing the art; it’s a habit to be developed, a life-skill. The extent, to which you are connecting, on some unconscious level, either into the past or into the future, is the extent to which you rob yourself of your present power.

You are not going to be experiencing what it is that you want; therefore you are moving your emotional point of attraction, into negative territory.

THE MEANING OF COFFEE

 

A group of alumni, highly established in their
careers, got together to visit their old university
professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints
about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the
kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an
assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass,
crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some
exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the
professor said: If you noticed, all the nice looking
expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain
and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want
only the best for yourselves, that is the source of
your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the
coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in
some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you
really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you
consciously went for the best cups… And then you
began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this… Life is the coffee; the jobs,
money and position in society are the cups. They are
just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of
cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of
Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the
cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us.”

God brews the coffee, not the cups…….. .. Enjoy
your coffee! The happiest people don’t have the best
of everything. They just make the best of everything.”
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak
kindly. Leave the rest to God
