The meaning of abundance is a great or plentiful amount.
When we think of abundance, we should think of more than just financial wealth, even though wealth is a part of abundance. When using abundance as a focal point during meditation, you can focus on a specific kind of abundance such as a more connected life to your community, career, health, relationships, joy, happiness, love, or any other positive emotion.
Before you begin, take a few moments to focus on an intention with drawing more abundance to you. You may want to focus on all aspects of your life or; you may have something more specific in mind. Close your eyes and relax. Allow your soul to guide you with what you are looking for. Take as long as you need, there is no hurry.
Once you have gathered your thoughts with what you would like to meditate on, you may now begin.
Find a comfortable spot to relax and sit away from all distractions; cellphones, t.v., noise, etc. Place both feet flat on the floor, your arms and legs uncrossed. Your hands resting comfortably beside you or on your lap ( I prefer to have my palms facing up to help draw more positive energy in).
Take a good look at the photograph with the dock and the water with the moon shining on the still and calm water. Now slowly, close your eyes taking the image of the photograph with you into your visual memory.
Start with relaxing your muscles and nervous system. Inhale slowly through the nose, filling your lungs with fresh air and exhale slowly, release all unwanted energy and thoughts through your mouth. As you repeat each breath start by feeling your feet and give them permission to relax, and they will fall slighty to each side of your body. Take another deep breath and relax your knees… repeat the breathing step for your pelvis, chest, arms, shoulders, neck and head. if you’re finding that one part is not relaxing, don’t try to force it, just keep slowly breathing until it releases the tension and relaxes. You are in no rush. I always know that I’m ready and relaxed because my head naturally gives way to my right side.
Another technique that I incorporate with my meditations is Aura power. When I’m relaxing my body, I surround myself with a soft white glow, which represents The Creator, then on top I feel/see a nice rich green colour for my health, then the colour blue for manifesting what is required and I always use a personal colour that resonates with me. I usually vibrate well with orange for happiness and feeling good. Your personal colour is your choice, you can pick one or you let your soul tell you the colour. When you feel your colours surrounding you from head to toe… feel them vibrate with you, they may keep in time with your heart beat or they may have a pace of their own. Your aura colours will work in which ever way they need to help you through this meditation.
Now that you are relaxed, bring the picture of the dock forward into your mind. See it, feel it as if you are there right now in person. If you are having some troubles focusing on the dock, open your eyes slowly to look at the picture again and absorb what you see. Slowly close your eyes again, and check to see if your body is still relaxed.
Picture yourself walking on the deck towards the edge where it meets the water. You are safe on this deck, it is sturdy and solid. Take a moment and breath in the peaceful serenity of this place. Absorb the positive energy that surrounds you on the dock. Look down into the crystal clear blue water and see your reflection in the water. Everything is quiet and you are very comfortable here. If you are wearing any kind of footwear, take them off and place them beside you on the dock. Now, imagine yourself sitting on the edge of the dock. Your feet are dangling just above the water line. If you stretched just a bit your toe would dip into the warm water and it creates a slight ripple in the water.
Imagine yourself sitting on the dock with the peace and tranquility all around you. See the light from the moon shimmer on top of the water, the water sparkles in the moonlight. It’s as if the stars have came down from out of the sky and have joined you to assist you through your meditation. Everything is just right. Embrace the secure feeling now and know that you created it. You are safe and protected here.
Imagine looking into the water and an image appears. It is you and you are creating a situation in your life that you want to see happen. This image could be about improving your health, or getting that dream job, or having the financial security that you’re seeking or, the right person coming into your life. You decide. Right now, just focus on one thing that you want to have in your near future. This is your most powerful desire to make it happen. By gazing into the water, and seeing yourself in that ideal situation is how you are going manifest the affirmation come to life. Take your time and don’t forget to smile. Let the moonlight dancing on top of the water create images of what life will look and feel like when you have achieved that goal. Imagine yourself full of pride and joy because you are living the life you created.
I’m going to use my dream home as an example. As I look into the water, I see myself looking at my home from the road. It’s a 2 story stone and brick house with two over sized wooden doors welcoming me home. It is in an European style home that has lots of character and charm. I have a 3 car garage attached to the right of the house. My home has lots of windows and in the back there is a wall of windows that when opened it is a seamless flow of the outside to join the inside without having to step over sliding door tracks. There’s an infinity pool in the backyard shaped like a kidney with a water fountain behind it. There are two levels to the backyard and the upper level has seating area that overlooks the pool. I walk towards the front doors and I open them. There is an antique styled door knob and when the door is opening I can feel the cool air of the central air greeting me. I close the door behind me and I’m standing in my grand foyer. The floor is a white and grey carrara marble with a heavy vein of grey. It looks magestic. The walls have a Venetian style finish. My home is very warm and inviting. Off to my right is the library, to my left is a study/music room. I walk in a bit further and behind the study is the open staircase going to the second level. I keep walking and find my open concept kitchen with a huge island and the countertop is lit from underneath giving a soft glow when it is dark. The kitchen is the hub of my social events and all of my appliances are restaurant grade because I like to entertain and cook a lot. To the left of the kitchen is a dining room that can hold up to 20 people comfortably. It’s finished in a casual wood and glass look. and through the windows I can see my orchard of fruit trees and open spaces (I don’t live in the city). When I go to the left of the kitchen that is where I find the gathering room. This is where the outside meets the inside and there’s a beautiful view of the spacious backyard and upper level terrace. All the sofas are meant for comfort and lounging. There is also a back staircase between the kitchen and the dining room (my floor plan is 7200 square feet). If I use the main staircase to go upstairs, I will find 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms. I usually have friends and family stay with me on weekends or when I am home from travelling. When I reach the top of the staircase to the left is my master suite with double doors. I walk into the master suite and there is a king size bed positioned just perfect to get the most maximum wake up view of the gardens and pool. There is also my master bath and my huge walk in closet. My master suite also has a sitting area to relax. On the other side of the open 2nd floor walkway are the remanig 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. When I take the stairs down to the basement, there is a private screening room with oversized movie style seating for 20 and a huge movie style theatre video screen with 3D capabilities and an awesome surround sound. I also have a wine cellar and workout room. Everything is decorated just the way I want it. Every room I go into gives me joy and puts a smile on my face. I own my beautiful home and it’s in my ideal setting with great neighbours.
When going through your dream intention put every possible detail into your thoughts to make it as tangible as possible. All this can be yours if you believe in what you think.
When you are done detailing every aspect of your new abundant life intention, dip your toe in the warm water to create a swirl, give thanks to yourself and the Universe for such a beautiful vision and say to yourself “I am creating the life I desire with freedom and ease in an easy and relaxed manner”.
If you want to go to another abundant intention, now is the time for the next one. Begin again looking into the calm, still water. See your next intention start to unfold in beautiful, brilliant detail.
If you think that’s enough (but why would you, dream big) for now and want to come out of your meditation…. follow these steps….
Look up at the moon while you’re sitting on the dock and smile. Give thanks and gratitude for a successful time at envisioning your soon to be abundant life. Know that you are the master and carry the keys to unlock the life that you deserve. All of the abundance is for you to embrace. Now put your footwear back on your feet and stand up without any effort. Breath in the peaceful, tranquil energy… this is yours to take with you forever more. Turn around and face away from the water and start walking up the dock to safe and dry land. With each step you take you can now start to stretch your limbs starting with your feet, then your knees, legs, pelvis, torso, arms fingers, shoulders, neck and finally your head. Feel the awakened life force energy filling every cell, every organ of your entire body with that peace. After a slow stretch bring saliva to the front of your tongue and wet your lips, say out loud “Thank you”. Now slowly open your eyes. Be still for a few moments, knowing that you have done a great job. With this meditation you have set into motion the necessary steps to put this (these) intentions into full on action.
My suggestion is to practice your abundance meditation everyday. Take your time and don’t rush. In time with repetition, you will be easily viewing the same intentions with the same details. You will be able to move quickly (but still with great detail) through your abundance meditations. I personally usually meditate for about 35 mins. My body knows when time is up and what I need. Trust in yourself that each intention can be yours when you realize your soul is in agreeance with your wants.
Dedicate yourself to living a life full of positivity and doing the necessary steps and actions in creating the life you want and to bring all of the abundance towards you that you richly deserve.
