Abundance in 20


Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.  Wayne Dyer

There are days, like today,  when I start feeling “the lack” I sit down and amaze myself of the vastness of infinity… Have you ever done that?  Well as a Scorpio, I love to daydream.. LOTS!! Too much sometimes, yet there are times when it serves me best.  This time I did something different, I compiled a list of things which remind me how abundant we really are.  And how the Universe serves us daily.

I ask you to add to the list in the comment section.  Tomorrow I will post another 20 things with your ideas!  Here it goes.

When I think about abundance I think about….

1. Bird’s finding worms every morning to eat and feed their young…

2.  …plus they always find stuff to build their nest;

3. Every fruit and vegetable has tons of seeds which can make new plants which come with more fruit with tons of seeds;

4. Rain!

5. Leaves on a trees (especially in the fall, when I have to rake them…

6. …and the millions of helicopters on Maple trees that fall down in spring (they make new trees)

7. The dirt under my feet.

8. Hugs and kisses

9. Access to information

10. Music

11. Rice, flour and pasta (I can make millions of meals with harvest from no 3)

12. Beauty

13. Art

14. The presence of inspiration

15. Babies

16. Love

17. A field of wildflowers

18. And the seeds which plant themselves in the fall

19. The sun, the moon, the planets and the stars…

20.. And the vastness where they dwell…

Your turn!

Authenticity in spring cleaning – In any season


“The longest journey is the journey inward” Dag Hammarkjold

One of the main goals in soul searching, for me, was finding my authentic self.  Sarah Ban Breathnach, in her infamous book Simple Abundance, states we are at our best authentic self around age 10, right before society grabs hold of our thoughts, feelings, and values. In turn, these contaminants lead some of us to endless self-doubt and low self worth.

In order to sift through all the clutter I had accumulated in my soul, I performed rounds and rounds of spring-cleaning and this in any season. To find who I truly am, I had to sort through heartaches, disappointments, comparisons, expectations, old arguments, well.. you get the picture. I also physically took out all my old boxes and returned into my past. I created a timeline of events, of accomplishments elements I set out to accomplish, and actions, which, brought me happiness. Revisiting yourself is so worth it!

It was, I must admit, a very challenging task, yet a task, which led me to discover a most fascinating person: ME! A person I had forgotten so much; yet a person I had remembered so much.

This past month, I have been spring-cleaning again. What I have learned over the years is: The cleaning does not take as long as it used to, and I remember very quickly my authenticity. At 45, I have no time to wear a mask! I refuse to be anyone else.

I am the fire in firecracker, the crack in crackpot, and the bow in rainbow!

Do you remember youself at 10? I do. I was bright, smily, sensitive, and idealistic. I was full of wonder, magical thoughts, and I believed in fairies. I loved to swing, eat lots of candy, and make things out of mud.

In the comment section. Describe youself at 10. I’m curious. J
