Circulation. It’s an important natural law that goes like this. Everything in nature must circulate or die. It is a universal current of giving and receiving without expectation. If we block this current, we are not in line with this natural law. We cannot receive what we do not give.
Think about it this way: the less you feel you have, the less you give away. The less you believe in yourself, the less you share your gifts and love with others. This creates an equal, negative flow back towards you. Less money, less love which in turn proliferates the negative emotion of lack. (My heart hurts.) In other words a big, fat blockage in the pipe.
Take your body for example. It is constantly circulating energy, exchanging one substance for another, never with-holding. Your heart only pumps as much blood as it receives and visa versa. If there is a blockage to the flow of energy in the body, there is disease, imbalance and stagnation. Everything must circulate or die.
Whatever you feel you are lacking in your life, you are withholding it equally, whether from yourself or from others. Take note: where is there a gaping hole. Are you focusing on the hole or how you can fill it?
To live in abundance, health and prosperity, you gotta rise out of the belief that there is not enough and I am not enough.
First, tune into abundance all around you. Start with the breath, circulating for the duration of your life. It is constant. It cannot stop until it’s right time. Try to find the edge of the universe or the count the waves in the ocean. Trust that there is always enough.
Second, recognise you share the same Source as the universe and ocean. It is all One and nature doesn’t have boundaries. You, my friend, are enough.
Can you give more smiles, hugs, open more doors, tiny offerings of love to affirm enough-ness. Can you share ideas freely without expectation of return? Would you, could you give it all away because you know there’s more than enough?
Circulate your best love, your best art, your best ideas, your best self…
If you can do that, you must be abundant!
I can’t say it better than this:
“Herein lies a paradox: If you want more of whatever it is that you desire, you have to first prove that you are capable of having it by developing a consciousness that affirms there is no shortage of it. The only way to do this is by creating a vacuum or space for it to be received, and the only way you can create a space for it to be received is by letting go of what you do have, trusting that the universe knows what it is doing.’ Dennis Merrit Jones from his book The Art of Being.
And the last piece of the puzzle – you have to be open to receive. Look for the blessings and allow others to give to you.
