MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — I Can’t Afford To Judge Myself.

Plumeria

If I judge myself in any way, for instance that I am not enough, just as I am, then; I start projecting that out on others.

To forgive my judgments of others, I need to forgive the root problem of judging myself first. If I keep in a state of forgiving myself and accepting me warts and all, then my life is much easier and clearer.

I am enough.

MY EXPERIENCES WITH CREATING ABUNDANCE — Leave Things Better Than You Found Them

Plumeria

Once I started keeping a focus of leaving things better than I found them, a new level of self-seteem came in. It is a subtle thing. On some level, it feels very good.

Most times what I do, is something very small, like pick up a piece of trash or straighten something up. If I can’t find any little thing to do, I leave a prayer.

Of course, the choice about what is better is subjective. That’s part of the fun. You get to decide what that is.

CREATING ABUNDANCE — The One Most Impactful Thing I Did To Create Abundance.

Plumeria

Have you ever used affirmations? They have helped me to undo negative programming, to change my self talk. It takes a lot of repeating a positive affirmation to undo deeply held negative beliefs. I’m talking about saying an affirmation 1000 times a day or more. I used to say them while I commuted over and over. Sometimes I would sing them or say them in different tones. You can say them silently while waiting in lines.Some people like to say them to a mirror.

You can get results with some general abundance affirmations like —

I am rich.

I am worthy.

I am enough.

I think it is more effective to use your own personal abundance affirmation. Usually I say abundance rather than money because abundance is so much more than money.

When I was seeking my own personal abundance affirmation, a thought came in my head —

This is easy, my affirmation will be something like work until you drop.

Was I surprised when I got all quiet and relaxed and asked to be shown my affirmation.

I have an inner sanctuary in my creative imagination. I go there to rejuvenate. In it, I have an information room with a computer. I looked at the screen in my mind’s eye and saw the words on it–

I am taking time for myself to love and be loved.

Time was always an issue for me. I pressured myself to accomplish. For me, this affirmation is perfect. It often helps me make decisions about what I want to do.

If I was to look for an affirmation in my mind, it would have been work till you drop. This affirmation of taking time for myself comes from a deeper part of me, from my inner wisdom.

How can you get in touch with your inner wisdom and receive the abundance affirmation that is for you? You need to relax and listen inwardly. You can ask to be shown in a dream state or in meditation. Do you have other ways that you use to connect to your inner wisdom?

Have your best week ever.

When I’m 64!

When I’m 64!

Ah, that would be today! Yay, I’m alive. I’m not a wasn’t or an isn’t. I love the Dr. Seuss Happy Birthday To You book.

A younger blogger wrote about having crow’s feet. Here is me trying to hide my crow’s face.

Today is mine. I am letting go of all the things on my plate

— the drawing I am working on for OWOH. It was supposed to be ‘easy’. I’ve been at it over 20 hours so far and it’s what I want to do but not today. XD

 

I find myself cleaning of all things. I love everything all clean and uncluttered. My inner child loves to clean. My outer child does NOT. I will make it fun however.

I’m wearing my favorite blouse. It’s knit silk and I already got some kukui oil on it and I will be cleaning in it, but hey, It’s my birthday. I asked dh to take a photo of me to show you, I was so pleased that I didn’t have muffin top. Turns out my delusions are better than my eyesight, so no photo.

Since it’s my birthday and that is like being Queen of the universe, I wish for you all to have your best day ever!

CREATING ABUNDANCE — A GENERAL LOOK

Plumeria

Once, I had the experience of rating the main areas of my life.

Finances

Health

Life Work

Social/Relationships

I rated them on a scale of 1 to 10, how I saw them in the moment. Try it.

Notice your lowest rated area. Sit quietly and listen inside. You know that phrase Let Go and Let God, or nature or a higher power. Do that now.

The more you can relax the easier it is to hear your inner wisdom.

With your breathing, focus on exhaling as completely as you can. The inhale will take care of itself.  Push your breath out as long as you comfortably can. Blow out imaginary candles.

As you continue reading, be aware of your breathing. Feel yourself relaxing.

What would improve your area that you gave the lowest rating?

Can you think of something to change about that area of your life?

Is there any new behavior you could try out?

What does this area have to teach you?

Is there anything for you to forgive? I’m not talking about forgiving any particular circumstance in your life, I’m talking about forgiving yourself for judging yourself in any way. Know that you always did the best you could, given your circumstances at that moment.

Right now is where it is happening. Stay in this place, stay in now. Yesterday is over. Abundance is not there. It is available here and now. If you are having trouble staying present with right now — observe the seat of your chair against your body, the temperature in the room, your breathing.

If there are a lot of challenges for you in your life now, there are also blessings. Everything is a blessing. There is a silver lining to every cloud. Even poop can be composted.

A big secret to creating abundance is composting the poop of your life and enriching your life with this fertilizer. If you have lemons make lemonade.

You are the perfect one for your position in life, the perfect CEO of yourself, inc.

Is there any little change you can make to improve your life? I’m talking small here, so small that it will be easy to do. For e.g. smile at someone, or take three relaxing breaths or turn off the light as you leave the room or any number of things that you think of.

Now rate these four areas of your life as they are right now. : )

Finances

Your Health

Your Life Work

Social/Relationships

I hope you find like I did, that they are better. For me, I had a headache and by the time I relaxed a little it was a much better rating.

Bless you. XD

Creating Abundance – Claim Your Power

Plumeria

Would you like to have more of the things you want in life? And less of what you don’t want? Using a practical, spiritual approach, you can discover what true abundance is for you and begin manifesting it. Abundance in the world follows naturally from being connected with your inner abundance. It doesn’t work to demand it. It comes in as a byproduct as you get in touch with the goodness you are.

If you haven’t read it see here for last week’s assignment. or to recap  — I asked you to write a paragraph about your financial state. You don’t have to share it with anyone, it’s just for you. If you haven’t done that consider doing it now.

Now take a moment to be quiet inside yourself. Exhale for as long as you comfortably can. Allow your lungs to be refilled with clean air.  Exhale again for as long as you comfortably can. Push the air out, as if you are blowing out candles.

Remember to yourself, that you have all the resources necessary to handle your life. If you don’t believe this, pretend for the purposes of this exercise. Let that sink in.

Now take a fresh sheet of paper and write a paragraph about your financial state from this place inside of you.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*

Five things that I feel happy about this week are:

1. 50% of my husband’s co-workers were laid off last Friday and he wasn’t. Hurray! I like the lifestyle he spoils me with.

2. I won two books from Dollycas‘s Thoughts. She does a lot of book reviews and has a lot of giveaways. She also is interesting, kind, thoughtful and one of my favorite bloggers. She has so many giveaways, I knew I was going to win sometime. Yay!

3. My grandaughter’s room is zebra and pink. When I found some zebra yarn I had to make her a blanket. Did you know there are lots of how to’s about fixing dropped stitches and they all talk about stitches you drop and find while you are knitting. I found my dropped stitches after I nearly finished a full size blanket. One thing I love about knitting is the uniform look of the stitches. Mine were out of uniform. After I repaired them, they were glaring mistakes to me.

Since I’m more of a salvage things rather than take them apart and redo them kind of person, I decided to crochet chains the length of the blanket where the mistakes were.

A new design. Once I crochet a border, it will be done. Yay!

4. I ‘took offense’ from an acquaintance of mine. Clearly she was in error, until I looked closely. When I am in a good place, nothing bothers me. I realize I needed to fill me up. Now I’m grateful that it came up as a reminder to me.

5. Two of my favorite blog writers shared about feeling inadequate. They are people who write very well and give me a challenge not to  compare myself  with them. I would lose in all the areas they are so excellent at. It would never occur to me that they could feel that way. Another ‘lightbulb moment’ reminder to me. I am excellent at being me. Am I using the word excellent too much, that’s what we people who used to be hung up on perfection use instead of perfectionist terms. Muhaha.

Did you have an excellent week?
