Autumn AbundanceSep 2022
As we enter this next phase of the year I am reminded of how important it is to take stock of what you have achieved and what you have experienced. This year so far has made me very grateful for the life I have cultivated and the experiences that have led me up to this point in my life.
It's been a roller coaster of a year so far and I am sure, like me, you may have experienced your first holiday in over two years. For me a holiday with my family brought many things: Connection, happiness and joy, and a sense of abundance. Not financial abundance but a richness far deeper than that.
As the early autumn nights have started to draw in I've been reflecting a lot on abundance.
Abundance is almost always connected to material wealth which can leave us constantly reaching for more. If we get caught up in this mindset, it leads us to believe that we are not inherently enough. Through constantly searching outside of ourselves, seeking validation for our enough-ness, our vision becomes clouded. We can’t see clearly that there’s a natural flow of abundance around and within us and instead we get stuck in a scarcity mindset.
Having a scarcity mindset is easy to adopt - we spend our days reflecting on what we don't have, what we've not achieved and what is missing in our lives. This only leads to frustration, disappointment and judgement. But if we take a different perspective, one that invites us to see the abundance we already have, the richness that is already there within and around us - we will immediately feel different.
Being open to an abundant mindset allows us to see the infinite potential and possibilities that exist at every moment of every day. When we take the time to tune in and become aware of the natural flow of abundance, we move away from scarcity and become rooted in knowing that abundance is already vibrating within.
Before the autumn days are fully upon us, I encourage you to think about abundance and if you find yourself judging or falling into that scarcity mindset, stop yourself and take a BIG DEEP BREATH. Turn your mindset around and give yourself a moment of praise or acknowledgement for something you do have.
Like the season we are transitioning, we are evolving into the next phase of our growth. We don't know exactly how things will unfold, but I do know with an open mind and a grateful heart, abundance will be easy to find.
I wish you all a wonderful abundant autumn.
