Abundance Is Your Birthright
The first step to shifting into an “abundance mindset” is knowing that having abundance is your birthright. It’s knowing that you are meant to have it. The thought that there is only so much to go around or that if you take some, others will suffer is simply not true. The bottom line is that if you are in a “small amount” mindset, you are going to have a small amount. That is the only difference between the haves and the have nots. Haves know that abundance is their birthright. Have nots don’t believe it and so they don’t have it.
Have nots look at the world as a zero sum game. There’s a limited supply of stuff… a pie that is to be divided. They say things like, “The rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer.” And, of course, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because they unwittingly continue to participate in that “small amount” mindset.
Haves know better because they know there is more out there than what meets the eye. They don’t compete for what’s in front of them. They look at what is outside of the pie because they are convinced there’s more than what’s in front of them. They innovate stuff from what seems like thin air.
Sure, there are haves that take from the have nots. That kind of greed has always been around, and there will be always be “small amount” minded people who operate out of greed and try to take from others because they, too, only see a small pie in front of them. But the important thing to understand here is that everyone has a choice. The have nots can, at any time, move into a have state of mind. That’s because it’s everyone’s birthright to have abundance. And they can do so by tapping into the limitless supply of matter, which is outside of that pie they see with the naked eye.
The Universe IS Abundance
Just take a look what’s in the Universe, which you are part of. There’s not just one type of tree on the planet, or even only a dozen. There are around 100,000 known species of trees. Why do we have so many tree species? Wasn’t about a dozen or so enough? Apparently, not.
When it comes to stars, scientists tell us that there are more stars than there are grains of sands on all the beaches of Earth.
The Universe IS abundance, and even your own physical body reflects it – we don’t know the exact number, but it’s estimated that your body contains 50+ trillion cells.
And, of course, these are still just the visible parts of the Universe’s abundance. There’s a bunch we don’t know about the invisible parts of the Universe – the part that we call dark matter and dark energy. According to the NASA website, “roughly 70% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 25%. The rest – everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter – adds up to less than 5% of the Universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn’t be called “normal” matter at all, since it is such a small fraction of the Universe.” (http://science.nasa.gov/astrophysics/focus-areas/what-is-dark-energy/)
The Universe doesn’t play small, and, therefore, it certainly doesn’t expect you to either.
