The energy of gratitude is one of the highest vibrations we can achieve. And therefore, when we are operating at a high vibration, we attract higher quality things into our lives. Things that will serve the greatest and highest good for us. We often say we want abundance, and yet, we are often the greatest block to our own abundance.
This article builds on a previous article I wrote called “Growing abundance: the fertile soil of self improvement.“
What’s blocking our abundance?
Steven Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People writes:
“Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everybody else.”
Question for Journaling:
- Where does the scarcity mentality show up in my life?
- Where do I already believe in my own capacity to create abundance?
The flow of abundance and gratitude
Now let’s talk about how we can create a flow of abundance in our lives through the use of gratitude.
“Gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency, and you will attract much better things.” – Rhonda Byrne
Abundance is a mindset, not a destination or a milestone. Gratitude is the opposite side of the coin from abundance. When you are living in gratitude, the abundance in your life not only becomes clear but it starts to multiply! It sounds counterintuitive, but when you stop to appreciate what you already have, suddenly those things start to blossom in your life!
Self-improvement is a never-ending journey. It is not a destination. It is a way of being. And it’s the only way to experience true joy in this lifetime. Our circumstances are always subject to change. But if we have four strong roots (emotional, spiritual, physical, and intellectual), connection to our higher self, live in gratitude and have a mindset of abundance, we can experience the gift of true joy.
