The word “abundance” has been showing up a lot — in my thoughts, in yoga classes, in books that I’m reading. Funny enough, I’ve been trying to simplify my life these past few months, so I was confused as to what lesson the universe wanted to teach me about abundance.
Apparently, August is the first month of harvest for the year. There’s even a festival, Lammas, that celebrates the “first fruits of harvest, the fruits of our labors, ++ seeing the desires that we had at the start of the year unfold.” [UM, I LOVE THIS.]
Plant seeds. Love + care for the seeds… feed the seeds with nourishment. Watch the seeds sprout + turn into beautiful flowers//plants//fruit. Enjoy the abundant harvest.
Create intentions. Love + care for yourself… feed your intentions with mindfulness + small risks. Watch yourself grow + transform into the beautiful human that you are. Enjoy your newfound [wisdom, clarity, understanding, peace, love — whatever it is that you have cultivated through your intentions! : )]
#1] What does abundance [~ success ~] look like to you?
#2] What would it mean to have abundance now — to have enough now?
A quote that I’ve been working with [from A Course in Miracles]:
The self that God created needs nothing. It is forever complete, safe, loved + loving. It seeks to share rather than to get, to extend rather than project. It has no needs + wants to join with others out of their mutual awareness of abundance.
All that we need is inside of us. The tools + treasures + love is in our core, waiting to emerge from us. It’s our minds that tell us otherwise.
We must give birth to the best within us — for us, for this community ++ for the world. We have an energy inside us beyond measure. Imagine if we used our energy [our light, our soul] together to glorify this universe. It would be an abundant life, indeed.
It’s easy to talk about these concepts… but actually living it out — that’s hard. It’s up to us to plant the seeds inside our soul ++ nourish ourselves in order to live authentically.
What seeds will you plant today?
Cheers to abundance — we have enough, we are enough,
