I want more. Don't you? I think most of us want more money, better health, more happiness, joy, love and overall abundance. It's our desire for more that fuels the
economy, and it is the force that drives us to work and create every day.
I've been working so hard to achieve, but I'm also very used to running up against a wall. I tend to plateau after a certain point. There's story after story of someone who achieved success or won the lottery and then lost it all. Those people went back into a state of striving. It's stories like those that make me, and I'm sure many others, fear what is on the other side of abundance.
What happens once we've achieved the goal we are striving to reach? Is it smooth sailing or anti-climactic? Do you set an even higher goal? Today, as I listened to another story of a person who had or inherited plenty of money and was afraid of losing it or not handling her finances wisely, I started to ask myself if I am comfortable on the other side of abundance. Am I really united with the idea of what it is like to be in the state of having achieved my goals?
I realized I am so used to working at my goals of greater health, wealth, love and joy in my life, that I haven't allowed myself to truly embody that feeling of already having achieved those things and being comfortable in that space. My jaw hit the floor because I have been diving into the law of attraction so much that I assumed it was natural, until I realized it wasn't.
As I walked to my car from the gym, Iasked for divine inspiration for an affirmation I can repeat when I start to fear what is on the other side of achieving the abundance I desire. By the time I got to the car, I was blessed with the affirmation, "I am comfortable growing my abundance in health, wealth, love and happiness." I just repeated it all the way home and started to feel myself finally being in the state of having what I desire and realizing there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It won't bite you, and no matter where you are in life, you have no control over other people and events. You can only control your thoughts, attitude, decisions and actions. Have a T.A.D.A. day and embrace all of the abundance you desire because you can!
