“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.” — Marcel Proust
All around us are messages that lead us to believe our lives are ones of scarcity and lack, and that competition with one another is the only way we can truly succeed. However, when we begin to witness the true abundance of the world – whether standing in the middle of a majestic forest or scanning the shelves at the grocery store – we come to understand that the entire universe presents itself to us and is ours to enjoy.In order for us to truly experience everything the world has to offer, we must first come to appreciate all that we already have. By being truly grateful, we open the door to all the power, wisdom, and creativity of the universe, connecting ever more deeply with pure consciousness and its ability to usher anything we can envision into our lives. ~ Oprah & Deepak Chopra Desire and Destiny
CENTERING THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Abundance surrounds me.
In what areas of your life do you compare yourself to others or compete? How does it feel? What is the inner dialogue or limiting belief that ignites competition and comparison in your life?
After writing, spend time with the feelings and sensations connected to your written thoughts. Breathe in deeply and as you exhale, send yourself love and light. As your self-awareness expands, you are presented with the opportunity to practice a new way of being.
Write an affirming supportive letter to yourself, one that reminds you of all that you have to share with the world – your strengths, values, gifts, talents, and successes. As you celebrate yourself, you make space to celebrate others.
What are you grateful for today?
