“Too often the focus of our attention is misplaced, glued to what we believe is missing—which, in turn, directs the unbiased law of expansion to create an abundance of more of the same.”
– Dennis Merritt Jones, The Art of Abundance
Have you noticed, not only has holiday shopping started early, it has been jump-started out of fear? Fear that there is not enough. Fear that our holidays will be a disappointment. Fear that the precious things we need to have a successful holiday are sitting in cargo containers and will not be available.
Hello?? Remember a year ago? A year ago, the most precious thing we wanted was a hug from a family member or friend. We would have been thrilled to sit in the same room. We would have been ecstatic to breathe the same space without fear.
Granted there are real shortages and real impacts on some businesses. We have an opportunity to not contribute to the mental and emotional fear. We have the freedom to speak words of faith.
Focus on what is available, what is important and precious. Take attention off what is missing and place it on the abundance of this moment.
Speak this affirmation aloud from Catherine Ponder:
“Divine Substance cannot be diminished.
Divine Substance cannot be exhausted.
Divine Substance cannot be withheld.
Divine Substance is everywhere present and I wisely use it now.”
Most of all, know that you are loved.
