week 10 – Abundance

Abundance and infinite supply – the power that comes from being able to live with the mindset of abundance and infinite supply is mind boggling.  I grew up in a family that had very little.  We always had food to eat and clean clothes on our backs, but there was always an underlying sense of scarcity.  I remember one Sunday morning my Mom had made us 4 kids pancakes for breakfast.  I was in Kindergarten at the time so I was approximately 5 years old.  As I was sitting at the kitchen table eating my pancakes, my mother came over my shoulder and asked me if I would like to have some more syrup on my pancakes.  I just about jumped out of my chair and answered “Yes! Can I?  Really?”  You see, even as young as I was, I was aware that we didn’t have much, and when I was putting the original syrup on my pancakes, I was well aware that I shouldn’t take too much as it had to last and feed all of us.  Living a life of scarcity actually became a part of my blueprint, and it has stayed with me for all these years.  Living with this mindset, you can imagine just how difficult it is for someone like me to actually believe in abundance and infinite supply.  Well, just as clearly as I recall the pancake incident, I remember my first experience with infinite supply.  It came to me when I was pregnant with my second child.

I had been told that I would never be able to have children.  As you can imagine, I was devastated.  Clearly, the Universe had different plans for me and I went on to conceive and give birth to a beautiful baby girl!  She was my miracle child, and I loved her with every ounce of my being.  I was consumed by this child, and I protected her with everything that I had in me.  Three years after her birth, I found out I was again blessed with a pregnancy.  God is so good!!!!  As my pregnancy advanced, I became very frightened and concerned.  I was terrified that I would not be able to love this second child as I had given every ounce of my love to my first born, my miracle child.  Well, when he was born and placed in my arms, I immediately fell in love with him and as time went by, I quickly learned that love is definitely one of those entities that we have that comes to us in infinite supply.  I was amazed that I didn’t have to try and love him.  I just did.  I didn’t have to fight to find the love for him.  It just was.  And then there was a third pregnancy through which I had no fear of not having enough love in me.  Still to this day, it amazes me how love is all around us in infinite supply.  Love and abundance – one is the other.  Such a beautiful realization….
