So here’s the thing. We’re all gonna die someday and to spend our precious moments on this incredible Planet in these miraculous bodies worrying about what people will think about us if we do this or don’t do that makes no sense to me. We are miracles. Literally. Just think about it. We’re flying through the cosmos on this gorgeous Earth ship.
This is an experience that will be common for anyone growing into their dreams and potential. As we step into new visions and bring dreams to life, often times we will hear those old voices of doubt and insecurity coming up. The feelings associated with these negative thoughts are usually anxiety, feeling low, foggy, heavy or sad. It is seriously such a mental and emotional strain to have to listen to everyday; not to mention the buzz kill to my life!
At first the natural tendency is to just keep truckin’. To plug away at our projects, ignore it and move forward despite the discomfort. But as the doubt wraps itself around the things we’re trying to accomplish, it becomes nearly impossible to continue on. It’s like wading through quicksand or the Swamps of Sadness in the Neverending Story. The energy of doubt eventually weighs us down until we either sink or deal with it.
The thing is, when we are in fear mode, it stops us from thinking clearly and it certainly blocks our flow of communication with Spirit or our intuition. Life becomes a foggy haze and we’re unable to see our next steps with confidence and clarity.

“I have one question, how can we believe that the Universe is totally abundant, and all we have to do is connect to that feeling? I mean, what about people in Ethiopia for obvious example, they can connect and visualise and meditate all day, but how can that bring them food and prevent them from dying? And even the earth, nature is not all abundant, soil is not furtile everywhere, climate is not always right, and not to mention earthquakes, floods, drought etc.? This is not a critic to you or the Universe (hear that Universe!), all I want is to understand, and I am trying to get that mindset of abundance, but it just doesn’t seem to be true!”
I am going to do my best in this moment to share from the heart of my own experience, which has been a long arduous journey of ‘Trying’ to connect with those feelings of abundance so I can harness that power in my Life for the good of others. We obviously can not discard that people are starving, soils are depleted and things can be scary at times living here in extreme conditions on this wild Planet Earth.
But Abundance isn’t something ‘Physical or Tangible.’ It can Be, but that’s not where it starts. What I am talking about is a feeling of abundance and if you want to connect to that feeling then you need to let go of your worries or need to see proof that the Universe & Life isn’t abundant. Instead of looking outside of yourself for proof that life is limited, you are limited and our supply is limited, you need to go inwards to all of the fears, doubts, beliefs and ideas you have about yourself, life and the Universe that are limiting your abilities to SEE what is in front of you and all around you….
For example, I live in a lush old growth Rainforest on Salt Spring Island BC. Up until recently, I thought that I had to go to a grocery store to eat food, which costs money. However, this year I have been learning a ton about the ‘Old Ways’ of wild foraging for my food to feed my body. It has blown my mind wide open that I can now wonder in the forests outside my house and collect all sorts of Wild Foods & Medicines that before I thought were just ‘Plants.’ This is the type of awakening I am talking about, which happens when we open ourselves up. Until we remove the doubt from our minds, the neural pathways of our brain literally WILL NOT show us the solutions, even if they are inches from our eyes. They just won’t compute. This is why we need to open up and be willing to see & feel.
Okay, so lets jump ahead now and lets just say that you’re now connected to the ‘STATE OF BEING, that Is Abundance.’ So now that you are in that state of Abundance (which is energy) and you look around and still shit isn’t right. Still you see people dying of hunger, still you see challenging climates to grow food, etc… So what has changed? What has changed is your consciousness. Instead of feeling like a victim of circumstances you are an Embodied Creator and as an Embodied Creator you recognize that YOU hold the power to create a solution for what you’re seeing. So instead of feeling sorry for people in Ethiopia, you harness that Universal Power and you create a solution to help all people be fed. Instead of saying it’s impossible to grow food here, you open your consciousness or imagination to some sort of technology or solution that remineralizes the soils and allows food to flourish abundantly where you are.
The State of Abundance opens your eyes to see what is right in front of you; to see what you can’t see when you are in Victimhood or you’re coming from the program of lack and limitation. If you want to create solutions for those ‘so-called’ problems you speak of, then you need to clear your House of all the unnecessary thoughts, ideas & beliefs that block you from being the most Activated, fully Aware Embodied version of YOU, so you can harness the Universal power of Abundance. I believe that for every problem there are an Infinitude of Solutions to solve it and if we open ourselves up (which takes practice, resiliency & discipline) we can Truly create the World of Abundance we all want.
So here’s the juicy part of this thought stream. It doesn’t start with the people in Ethiopia. It starts with me and it starts with YOU. Once you connect to the energy I am trying to describe here (which actually can’t be described in words, it need to be experienced to be understood), you can literally direct that energy into any projects, creations, ideas, solutions or World-Changing things you want. You are the Creator of your every now moment and you are the one that the world is waiting for. Who do you want to Be and what is the Life you choose to Live? Once you decide these two important questions, every choice you make will either be in alignment or out of alignment. Which path will you take?
Harness your unlimited power of Infinite Abundance. So Be It.
