Are You Celebrating Future Abundance, or Poverty?

I'm a regular recipient of Carol Look's Attracting Abundance Newsletter and a recent mailing ("Celebrate Your Future Abundance") caught my attention in a big way. (To subscribe, visit http://www.attractingabundance.com/)

The fantasy of abundance is as real vibrationally
as the reality of abundance.

In this instance, "fantasy" refers to the image inside our minds, the vision we hold, as opposed to "reality", which is what we believe we are actually experiencing right now. The energetic vibrations of the image we visualize (fantasy) of whatever it is we desire is just as real as the energetic vibrations of the "reality" we see in front of us.

Well. That got me thinking. I realized that this applies to negative vibrations and visualizations as well as positive ones. Whatever image we hold within our minds carries a vibration. It would follow, naturally, that:

The fantasy of poverty is also as real vibrationally
as the reality of poverty.

If this doesn't cause you to stand up and take notice of your thought processes, nothing will.

Carol encourages us to:

Build [your] abundance by practicing how it will feel when you are enjoying your future abundance in your present time.

Doesn't this feel better than the idea of building your poverty by practicing how it will feel when you are suffering your future poverty in your present time? But wait—

Isn't that exactly what you're doing when you're worrying (about money, health, gas prices, the economy, etc.)?


I believe I've just had a major BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious). You, too?

This is so true and yet so many of us don't realize this. It is hard to change the way you think but I am working on it one thought at a time. If I catch myself worrying about how I am going to pay something I immediately stop and change the way I am looking at the situation to something more positive.

Jackson, you're right. It's a challenge to change thought patterns. It sounds like you're getting the hang of it, though! Thanks for stopping by.
