One of the many obstacles to manifestation is the belief that the resources that could be available to us are limited.
We often perceive the things we want in life are in limited supply or of limited access. This seems to be particularly true of financial abundance. We often hear statistics stating that a small percentage of the population controls, or is in possession of, the largest percent of the wealth. As we subscribe to this belief we automatically create parameters around these ideas, that abundance can only be acquired by an exclusive group, an elite circle, or those who have extraordinary abilities, talent, or good fortune.
We also carry the belief that as long as there is a finite supply of anything, the more one person or group of people have, the less is available to all others. We might believe that having any abundance come into our life may create lack in someone else’s life, or that our own lack is the result of the mass of income and earnings gained by another.
None of these notions could be further from the truth. Abundance is not measurable in terms of a balance scale, where to fill one bucket you must empty another. Abundance is like the ocean. There is enough water in all the oceans for every human on this planet to fill a bathtub several times with so much left over it would seem as if the volume was hardly impacted.
The obstacle that stands between us and receiving all we desire is holding onto the belief that we have no means of getting the water to the tub. We feel we do not have the means or the capability or the talent or the wherewithal to attract into our lives all that we want. We do not feel we are worthy of such good fortune, and as a result, we create that very reality.
One of the simplest ways of attracting abundance is to realize the wealth we already have through taking inventory of our blessings and our good fortune. The simple act of taking account of all the positive things we have in our life, even if the negative things seem to outweigh them, helps us realize we are not totally bereft of goodness in our lives. Each positive that we can acknowledge actually having in our personal inventory brings us one step closer to affirming that we are deserving of blessings, that we have the capability of creating for ourselves the things we want. The negatives we simply need to see as a placeholder for more gains and rewards that are sure to come our way.
The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. This begins in our beliefs. If we create a belief system for ourselves that illustrates and highlights our own prosperity, that in and of itself will attract more prosperity. The only truth to there being a limit on all that is available to us is validated when we believe there is a limit, that there is a finite quantity of what is available for us to acquire. We create a cornucopia for ourselves once we dispence with this illusion.
