The concept of abundance means different things to different people. To you it may be concerned with your finances, your spirituality, your connections with others or the level of happiness that you enjoy – or perhaps something else entirely!
One of the most common interpretations of abundance is concerned with money. Financial freedom can be extremely liberating and enjoying this kind of abundance can make other parts of your life much simpler. However, the balance between the material and the spiritual is an important one to achieve – and one that can be difficult!
Regardless of what your idea of abundance is, meditation can be a powerful tool for encouraging the flow of it into your life. It can help you to clarify your understanding of yourself and to really discover what it is you need in your life.
How to Meditate for Abundance
The following meditative practice can help to open up your mind to the possibilities of abundance, and break down the mental blockages preventing you from receiving these gifts from life.
So, to get started you will need to find a peaceful place in which you can meditate undisturbed. This could be in your home, in the park, or any other quiet space where you feel comfortable and relaxed.
Sit with your legs crossed on the floor and close your eyes. Bring your attention solely to your breathing as the flow of air in and out of your lungs becomes deeper and longer.
After a few breaths, visualise the word abundance in your mind and try to focus your attention on this word for a few moments. Notice the colour of the word and the size of the letters. Notice how close the word seems to be to you and whether the letters move around or stay still.
After some time spent visualising this word your mind may begin to wander to connected concepts. Encourage this thought process and follow your train of thought on this journey.
This process will be unique to everyone and there is no way to predict what your mind may connect to the concept of abundance! You may find yourself visualising a time in your life when you felt full of happiness and fulfilled in other ways. You may find yourself visualising an image of yourself in the future with material wealth. You may even find that you visualise yourself in the present moment, exactly as you are now!
Give yourself the time to let these thoughts unfold and spend some time with each new thought before allowing another to divert your attention. Be sure to keep breathing consciously and deeply as you continue with your meditation.
After some time it should become clear what your individual idea of abundance is. Once you have this idea firmly in your mind then you can focus your intentions on this concept. Visualise it and continue to meditate on it as you also continue to breathe deeply.
Once you feel like you have seriously clarified this concept to yourself then you can clear your mind and end your meditation.
Living with Intention
Now that you are aware of what abundance means to you, you may notice that your actions and your intentions become entwined in order to embrace this idea.You can shape your decisions to create the abundant life that you want for yourself and enjoy the joys of having done so!
