Despite deeply painful disappointments and difficult challenges in my life, I have always believed in the magic and miracles of an abundant universe.
But I find that many people believe in scarcity and lack instead. They tend to have a scarcity mentality and lack awareness, focusing on what they do not have instead of inviting new blessings into their lives.
A scarcity mindset develops when people constantly focus on what they lack and what they might still miss out on. This cynical, fearful perspective on life leads to feelings of deprivation, inadequacy, and the fear that there will never be enough resources, opportunities, or well-being in the world.
As a result, people operating from a lack consciousness and scarcity mindset often approach life with an anxious fear of not having or being enough. This creates a self-fulfilling prophecy where their thoughts, feelings and beliefs limit their true potential and block the very things they fear not having from actually manifesting in their lives.
Whatever we believe and focus on becomes our manifested reality. If you believe there is not enough, there will never be enough, and you will certainly never have enough of those very things.
The other major abundance killers that many people use to sabotage themselves is envy and pettiness. They are resentful of other people’s perceived happiness, success, possessions and privileges. They also have a “if I can’t have it, you can’t either” crab mentality.
I have seen this play out in business many times over the years. I have owned several successful businesses over the years. Every time I started a new business, similar companies would somehow try to sabotage or damage my new venture.
But those companies with such underhanded strategies almost always failed to survive in the long run. Not because of the success of my business, but because they did not believe in abundance in their own business. Their energy was not invested in improving their own products and services, but was focused on hurting someone else’s. All they accomplished was to cut off their own energy flow of prosperity and abundance.
I, too, have suffered losses and disappointments in business, but I do not let them stop me from picking up the pieces and moving forward. All business is temporary. While many family businesses and large corporations survive for generations, the average start-up business is likely to last less than a decade.
Of course, there are always ways to revitalize, improve, reinvent and update your business so that it lasts longer. And the best foundation for achieving that kind of longevity is to believe in and practice an abundance mindset. Running your business from a mindset of lack, scarcity, envy, fear and pettiness will never make it thrive.
When you focus on scarcity, you focus on competing with and taking from others. When you focus on abundance, you focus on attracting what you need for your business to thrive. When you focus on abundance, you are also preparing to bounce back when your business needs it most.
Life is about necessary cycles. We need the changes and seasons for balance. Too much sun creates drought and too much rain creates vitamin D deficiency and floods!
An abundance mindset attracts new business opportunities and positive transformations to you and your business: perhaps a generous investor, a better location, a competent new manager, an exciting new product, or a major contract. When you believe in abundance, you attract what you need for the next new adventure, instead of losing even more by focusing on what you think others have and you donít.
One of the most profound moments in my life was when I was a young dance student. I was about 17 years old. The dancer next to me in class was staring at me. I could see it from my periphery. I was very focused on our center kicks and was able to not only kick to my head, but I hit my shin to my forehead with perfect posture and form. That was my focus.
But while I was focusing on myself and improving my own technique, she was obsessing about what I was doing. When I looked back at her in the mirror, I noticed she could barely manage to kick above her waist. I then realized her energy was intensely going towards competing with me, instead of believing she could also kick all the way up to her head. In the process her performance suffered even more.
It was a profound realization for me. I never looked at others, other than the teacher, when I danced. I always went into meditative state, pulling energy in. I always believed I could do anything the teacher taught me, so competition and envy was not a focus for me. My focus was my own success and abundance, not that of others.
Envy and competition are about a sense of lack and deprivation, and a lack of gratitude. We donít need to compete or feel envious when we feel we have enough, and when we appreciate the things we do have, no matter how humble or limited our blessings may be.
If you want to attract more abundance into your life, it is important to overcome envy and covetousness by focusing on your own blessings while celebrating the success of others. Don’t compare yourself to others. Instead, focus on your own goals and dreams. Above all, practice self-compassion. Be kind to yourself and accept yourself as you are. This will help you develop a stronger sense of self-worth.
A mentality that you will never have enough, or that you will never have what the other person has unless you take it from them, will never invite abundance into your life. Go out into the world every day and believe that the universe will provide whatever you need – not what you want, but what you need.
Manifesting abundance is not a one-time effort. Living a truly abundant life takes more than a heartfelt prayer or creating a vision board that ends up in the back of your broom closet. Successfully creating, attracting and manifesting true abundance requires consistent daily rituals to shift our mindset and attract more blessings into our lives.
Consistency is fundamental to any manifestation routine. It’s important to make a daily commitment to your practice by dedicating time and energy to your manifestation efforts. By consistently engaging in activities that align with your intentions, you send a powerful message to the universe that you are serious about what you hope to manifest.
If you are new to the concept of abundance manifestation or do not have a regular spiritual or metaphysical practice that includes abundance energy work, you may want to try some of the following strategies. By incorporating these practices into our daily routines, we will cultivate a more lasting mindset of abundance and attract more of what you need and desire for your highest good.
The most important first step in manifesting abundance is to set clear intentions for what you want to attract. It is important to clearly define what you want to manifest, and you need to be very specific about it, but without getting bogged down in too many trivial details. Take the time to visualize and articulate your goals, whether it’s financial prosperity, better health, or a soul mate. By setting clear intentions, you program your subconscious mind to focus on what you want to attract into your life and align your energy frequency with the desired outcome.
By the way, a common mistake many people make when setting intentions for financial success and security is to confuse the term “abundance” with “prosperity. Typically, these words are used interchangeably, but they actually have different meanings.
Abundance is the state of having more than enough of all the things we need to live a happy, healthy, and meaningful life. It is much more than just material wealth, because it also includes things like love, joy, health, and happiness.
Abundance is a blessed life, overflowing with the fullness of all that life has to offer. It is also the belief that there is more than enough to go around and that everyone has the right to have their needs met and to live a blessed life.
Prosperity, on the other hand, is a state of prosperity in material, financial, or economic terms. It is only one component of total abundance. Therefore, abundance is the foundation of prosperity. Abundance is the potential, while prosperity is the realization of that potential in material or financial terms.
Therefore, when setting your manifestation intentions, it is important to be clear about what exactly you are asking for. Asking for “abundance” but then visualizing money raining down on you is an inappropriate manifestation practice that will lead to mixed results or even a failed effort. Clarity is essential, so be sure to “intend what you mean and mean what you intend!
One of the most powerful daily rituals for manifesting abundance is a gratitude practice. Taking time each day to acknowledge and appreciate the blessings in our lives can have a profound effect on our mindset. Whether it’s through journaling, meditation, or simply reflecting on the things we are grateful for, expressing gratitude helps shift our focus from lack to abundance.
Visualization is a powerful metaphysical tool for manifesting abundance. By visualizing a mental image of your desired results as if they have already occurred, we signal to the universe what we want to manifest. Engaging in daily visualization exercises, imagining your ideal reality in vivid detail, involving all your senses, and feeling the emotions associated with that future reality, aligns your energy vibration with the future reality experiences you wish to manifest.
Affirmations & Mantras
Words and positive thoughts are powerful tools for reprogramming your subconscious mind and recalibrating your energy frequency to resonate with the future results you wish to attract and manifest. By repeating positive affirmations and chanting empowering mantras daily, you reinforce the beliefs that support your desired outcomes.
Here are ten powerful affirmations that can help you manifest more abundance in your life:
I am worthy of abundance and wealth. I am grateful for the abundance in my life. I am open to receiving abundance in all its forms. Abundance and prosperity surround me. I am capable of achieving all my goals and dreams. I am worthy of financial freedom and prosperity. I am grateful for the abundance that comes into my life. I am open to new opportunities for abundance. I surround myself with positive energy and abundance. I am grateful for the abundance that is already in my life.
Manifestation is not just about wishful thinking; it also requires aligning your actions with your goals. Start living your life every day in practical ways that represent and embody the energy and mindset of the future reality you wish to manifest. In other words, start acting “as if” your desired outcome has already manifested. "Fake it until you make it!"
By taking inspired actions and making magical choices as if our dreams have already come true, you become powerfully aligned with the abundance you wish to receive. Whether it’s dressing the part, making confident decisions without fear of loss or scarcity, or engaging in activities that resonate with our desired reality, acting as if you are already living the future dream accelerates the manifestation process.
Authentic psychic readings, with a reputable advisor, can also assist you in manifesting more abundance, by providing clarity and insight to what you truly need, identifying blockages and obstacles you may not be aware of, and offering guidance and support with any fear, envy, lack awareness or scarcity thinking that may be defeating your abundance practice.
In a psychic reading you gain a deeper understanding of your current circumstances and future possibilities. Through intuitive insight, a psychic reading can bring to light hidden aspects and offer perspectives that you may have previously overlooked. A psychic reading can also uncover underlying issues and barriers, shedding light on areas that require attention and resolution. Professional psychics offer personalized guidance and support tailored to an individual’s unique journey. We provide reassurance, direction, and a sense of empowerment to better navigate your path towards manifesting abundance.
Manifesting abundance is a lifestyle and daily ritual. It is a dance of abundance with the universal flow. It is a state of mindful meditation to attract abundance, happiness, prosperity and well-being. So, say your abundance affirmations every day, do your abundance prayers, visualizations and rituals, talk to your favorite psychic, and trust in the constant flow of abundance.
Most of all, be grateful for whatever you receive each day. There is always someone who has less than you or struggles more than you. Count your blessings and live in the belief that there is abundance for all.
