Instant Abundance, No Strings Attached - New Thought Sunday Message Sept. 5, 2010

“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.” Paul Valery

You read the books, you listen to the tapes and CDs, you attend the seminars. And you’ve been doing those things for years. Why aren’t you as prosperous and abundant as the teachers and gurus tell you that you can be? Simple. Your life is only as abundant as your consciousness of it. And that, my friend, is the only real secret. Wake up time!

The Abundance Mindset  
(No rules, just reminders.)
  • First and foremost, you are no victim. You have accepted responsibility for every aspect of your life.
  • You deliberately look for the possibilities and opportunities in all situations.
  • You know there is always enough to go around.
  • You are fully capable of developing new ideas.
  • You remain positive and upbeat most of the time.
  • You invest in the short term to receive long-term benefits.
  • You are mission-oriented. Service is your highest calling.
  • You recognize the gifts in all adversity.
  • You see the potential in others as well as in yourself.
  • You remain eternally curious.
  • You see forgiveness as fun and exciting because you know it serves you more than anyone else.
  • You practice good physical and mental health.
  • You look around your life and see what can be released. You know that release brings increase and then you can release again.
  • You know you don’t do it all alone; you seek and maintain great relationships with people, animals, the world.
  • You develop a healthy relationship with the universe, your Source, Spirit, whatever you call it. You see it as friendly and helpful. You recognize the Love in Expression.
  • You see miracles everywhere because you, yourself, are the miracle.

It has been said that the sure sign of the spiritual amateur is in the amount of complaining they do about not having enough of something—time, money, love, resources. But that’s not you. Your mind and heart are open to all the abundance the universe has to offer. And you share it with the world.

“To look is one thing. To see what you look at is another. To understand what you see is a third. To learn from what you understand is still something else. But to act on what you learn is all that really matters.” From the Harvard Business Review


  1. New Thought is a gift to those who are ready for it and open to it. Thanks for the beautiful reminders of what we already know but sometimes forget.

  2. You're right. These principles can be hard to digest for those who are not ready. Thanks.
