Awakening Yourself to Abundance

Written by Francoise Rapp

The principle of abundance is revealed in many ancient teachings. Sacred writings reveal thatrepparttar outer world isrepparttar 131408 reflection ofrepparttar 131409 inner world -- as above so as below. We are surrounded by an abundance of love, joy, money and health. The amount of our intake, however, is equal torepparttar 131410 limitations we place on our emotions, behaviors, thoughts and actions.

Our inherent belief system is what blocksrepparttar 131411 constant flow of abundance. For instance, you may have learned as a child that you cannot ask for more than what you have. Or maybe you were taught that once you receive abundance, you are going to lose it. Perhaps you were even told that it is there for others but not for you, that you are not worthy. By continuing to harbor these beliefs, you have essentially disconnected yourself from abundance and unconsciously refuse it.

In order to live an abundant life filled with love, money, health and joy, we need to reduce our limitations. This can be done through meditation, developing insight, acknowledgingrepparttar 131412 divine presence within, saying affirmations, and trusting universal abundance. Rather than focusing on results, we should focus onrepparttar 131413 source of their creation: ourselves.
