Let's talk Abundance. It is actually not something we acquire, but a vibration that we tap into. It's always there for everyone; we just have to feel deserving of having it. It took me a ridiculously long time to get hip to this. I eventually figured out I needed to get out of my own way and learn to be in a state of allowing.
In theory, it seems like a simple shift to make: allow good things to come to you. However, the way our minds have been programmed over the course of our lives has made it pretty difficult to just let things come through. So it takes practice to shift from a lack mindset to an abundant one. We wouldn't have so many of the societal issues we have now if people understood that there is always enough - for everybody. There's no need to hoard, or be jealous. Believe that your needs will be met and What is for you will always be there.
An to be clear, I realize there are tragedies that happen but keeping your vibrations high and your thoughts on what you do have and what is working, will help you out of an unfortunate situation faster.
We have everything we need: health, home, friends, family. And even if you don't have any of those things, you have air, your talents, people and services who can help.
We live in an abundant country - so abundant we waste 80 billion pounds of food every year. I live in one of the most abundant cities in the world. Everything is at the New Yorker's fingertips. While there's a lot to bemoan, there's a lot to be grateful for. When you really get clear on all you have, it can move you to tears.
Ask for help
Again, there's an abundance of resources that are ready and waiting to answer your call. Ancestors, Archangels, spirit guides, star families are just a few. Ask for assistance from deities like Lakshmi, Oshun, Abunduntia. Provide offerings for them so that you're giving something in return.
There are also more tangible resources like the SBA, free or cheap classes, or even public assistance. There's no shame in getting some relief, that's what your tax dollars help pay for. Resources are literally at your fingertips. Start Googling or Binging.
Amplify your abundance vibration with crystals: pyrite, jade, green aventurine, citrine are all known for their abundance-drawing properties. Carry them in your wallet, in your pocket, on chains - wherever you'd like. You can even do a crystal grid.
Change Your Thoughts
This last one is probably the most difficult but learn to change your thoughts around abundance. Saying daily affirmations is a way to start reprogramming your mind. "Money flows to me easily." "I constantly attract money" are a couple of good ones.
Also understand that money is not the Alpha and Omega of your existence. And abundance is not just about money. What makes your life rich? Community? Family? Free time? Personal projects? Think about that. Chasing money is like chasing a significant other. No one of substance is attracted to desperation. Know that you are deserving of having whatever you desire.
Lastly, give up the need to control how it comes to you. Ask for it and get out of the way. The Universe works in mysterious ways.
There are a plethora of ways to tap into the abundance frequency but believing that you deserve to create whatever you want in life and taking action, is a surefire way to get there. These techniques are just ways to help get you there.
