When Amazing Abundance Appears, Accept It With Gratitude

Have you ever noticed that you have periods in your life be they days, weeks or months that are incredibly lucky? The phone rings and an individual whom you have wanted to call you is on the other end; a business prospect that you have been chasing finally contacts you and gives you a lucrative piece of business; a friend e-mails you about your dream job with a successful company; the perfect property comes up in your price range or an issue with your health turns out to be nothing that you need to worry about anymore. All of these unexpected circumstances can happen in a matter of hours or days. If you are a very open, positive and receptive individual, you will accept this amazing abundance and realize that you have had something to do with all of it coming to you. You have probably been working very hard to plant the seeds, water and nourish them and now you are ready to harvest them. There has been plenty of planning, progress and preparation to making these circumstances happen. You have been aware and attentive to opportunities that have allowed this amazing abundance to arrive in your life. However, if your life has been full of challenges and difficulties, you may have found yourself in a place that is closed, negative and unwilling to receive this amazing abundance. In fact, because you like to be completely ready and in total control of whatever happens to you, you may choose to ignore this abundance and let it pass you by. The timing could be wrong for you and you may just not have the focus, energy or commitment to deal with it.

It is important to remember that you have no control over any of these events and no power over how and when they will present themselves to you. While it is a very positive gift, amazing abundance can cause some very negative feelings. Whether or not you have experienced amazing abundance, if you receive too much all at once, you may see it as an unwelcome burden that causes you to feel isolated, confused and uncertain about what to do next. You may want it to all to just go away and come back another day. It is important to take a step back and recognize that these feelings may stem from a fear of the changes that this amazing abundance will bring to you and to your personal and/or professional lives. If you can see these changes for what they are, your chance to stretch yourself by taking risks, becoming a beginner, starting a new chapter and achieving what you never thought was possible. It is your turn to grow and shine. I see amazing abundance as a clear, sunlit stream. You are on the shore. Rather than merely dipping your toe, get into the water and float. While you are lying in the water and looking up at the sky, take a moment to express your gratitude for your good fortune. Savour and enjoy all the good that has happened to you and be sure to generously share what you have with others.
