When Abundance Pushes Into Your Life

After several years of studying prosperity and affirming its presence in my life, I am overwhelmed with productive ideas which I am carrying out.

On the surface, it looks like nothing new is going on.

But underneath, I can feel the evidence building.

Things are connecting in new ways.

I am receiving guideposts in everything I read.

It is even leaking over into the lives of people close to me.

As my questions resolve and I move ahead, I am aware of changes in the life currents of those around me.

The message I was given over four years ago was “GIVE MORE”.

At the time, I had lost my job, spent my savings, and had no prospects.

As I pondered, and then demanded, “HOW?”, the answers began to come.

Now, they are still coming and I am acting on them.

When it doesn’t look like anything is happening, I read and study and affirm some more.

And I listen.

Very carefully.

At some point, things begin to flow again.

And again.

And again.

Abundance has become a fact in my life.

I am grateful for the message, my question, and its many answers.

When the Universe Insists

When the Universe insists on giving you a gift, circumstances will concur so that even if you refuse it the first time, it will show up in your life anyway.

This is my conclusion after an experience which I had.

I had paid for two mattes to be cut to frame a needlepoint which I finished after many years.

Since the store worker had measured them, when they didn’t fit, they recut them, this time measured by a different person.

When I went back the second time to pick them up, the store person who had measured them correctly offered to mount the needlepoint in the frame with the two correctly cut mattes.

I declined, saying that I had not paid for them to do that.

A few months later, we packed up everything and moved to another state.

I took my needlepoint and mattes to the new frame shop to get the staples I needed to finish the job myself.

While I was there, the worker showed me how to install the staples and then just did it herself.

There was no charge.

This is what leads me to this conclusion, that when the Universe wants to give you a gift, circumstances will tend in that direction.

The Divine Connection

The divine connection is individualized as each of us.

Each time we fulfill a need, wherever we can, we are expressing the divine connection.

Each time our need is fulfilled, we are experiencing the divine connection.

In earth’s perfect balance, both in Nature, and as a planet, we see this divine connection.

This goes beyond political philosophy, which places us in competition, and reestablishes us, reminds us, of cooperation.

Cooperation, interdependence, oneness are all ways of experiencing the divine connection.

All needs, large or small, are taken care of in the divine connection expressing itself as us.

No Regrets, Only Treasures

The first best time of my life was when I was twelve years old and I got my horse.

Next, my best time was when I married my current husband, twenty-seven years ago.

I found myself regretting that I have never made getting a horse for myself a priority.

Then I decided to really treasure the time that I had with that horse.

Now that I am doing so, I feel a flood of love out-pouring over me.

I have been doing good things, things that have caused me to grow, things that have supported others.

With that feeling of love out-pouring all over me, I know that every good thing will continue happening to me, and I will see the fulfillment of my dreams.

On Your Own Path

Now that I am coming to know my own path, (which no one else is able to show you), I know that when I look at you, you are on your own path, too.

I used to feel sorry for other people as I watch the disturbances and upsets in their lives.
I hoped and longed and prayed for their resolution.

As I have found my own resolutions and healing and distanced myself from the disturbances and upsets of my own life, I now realize others are in the same process.

The greatest revelation and gift that I received was to learn that I am the one person who is responsible for my life.

When I got it, I took hold of it and thought, “What decisions and I alone make, that will change and improve my life.”

Then I began to hear some new thoughts.

I listened to the new thoughts, and over several years of this process, deeper and deeper changes have been made in me.

I am living a completely different life from the one I previously experienced.

So now, I can look at everyone else and say, “Oh, you are on your own path as it is being revealed to you, too.”

Personal ID

While we think we are what the world is telling us we are, we have the experiences of the world.

When we become so frustrated or saddened or defeated by those experiences, we dare to look beyond them for something else.

It may take many steps in other types of experiences, but eventually, we discover the world within.

Beneath even our thoughts of the world, lies a kingdom within, our soul kingdom.

This kingdom contains our unique identity, our spiritual ID.

In it, is all the majesty of expression we are capable of.

It turns back all the world opinions we have accepted about ourselves or others.

It presents a magnificence of oneself and how we may best serve.

It presents the way to our fulfillment.

It presents the ways of uplifting society through our presence.

Its’ unlimited resources feed into our soul and out through our expression of Its’ nature.

We do better in our work right where we are, or it spits us out to discover and put into action the spiritual ID we have just begun to discover within.

Then we begin to discover how our beautiful life, our perfect fit  - different, but better, much better - than our previous one, defines the new world around us.

My Perfect Balance

When I keep my life in perfect balance, everything runs more smoothly.

I am able to deal with unexpected things because what I am conscious of, I do have under control.

Here are ways I practice perfect balance:

-Keeping my finances in order. 

-Only owning what I have time to care for.

-Spending time on the things that are important to me.

-Spending time on the things which refresh me.

The way this has occurred came through many steps.

Although I do not mind doing laundry, I find I have less of it to do by owning fewer clothes.

Instead of the burden of a large house to clean, I live in a tiny house.

Instead of the obligation to earn a certain amount of money to keep up a particular life-style, my life-style allows me to immerse myself in what I love to do.

My own self-imposed schedule allows me to take the time to refresh myself.

None of this happened overnight.

But it did happen though a desire to know what my gifts are and to share them.

All this has come about through that process.

My Connection

Those I love, those I have known,
Many of them are elsewhere now.

My connection to them is one of memory.
My connection to them is one of appreciation.

From their viewpoint, they showed me a way
To live in millions of little ways.

What ways of theirs are mine still to know?
And the other ways, are there more ways to grow?

My connection is here and now, though I
Think of them, it is just to know

Them better in what has now become
A dimension beyond this world and yet

As I think of them and think of myself
I can spiritually grow in my present being

To see them better now in my heart
My life’s purpose transcended is where I start.

I Am My New Own Parent

I have moved into a new phase of parenting myself.

I am living a new life, freer and freer of the old constraints and memories.

I have forgiven my parents.  They were working with their own limited resources.

I am expanding mine.

I am building on the good foundations they did give me and I am building new and better ones for myself.

I a listening within for guidance, and I am drawing the resources to me to follow through.

Mostly, I am listening closely to who I am and honoring her.

I am responsible for filling my needs in the best ways that I can.

My parents could only do so much.  They, too, had to discover their own identities.

I am glad I am moving past the old limitations, and building new foundations and learning how to be my own new parent.
