In the most recent Dear Gorgeous podcast, my co-host Gilayna and I talk about abundance.
It was in the middle of our G&A session, that G looked at me and asked me what my definition of abundance was. The first thing that came to my mind was having a peace of mind. I was a bit surprised. Many of us associate the word “abundance” to money, but it’s more than that. It’s time, energy, relationships, and appreciating the simple things in life.
My father had taught be about Law of Attraction when I was seventeen years old. I thought it was a bunch of fluff in high school but the older I got, I became more open-minded to this manifestation technique he often talked about. To break it down, the Law of Attraction is the law of the universe that “like attracts like”; this law also is based on your energy and the vibration you send out to the universe. The universe listens and only responds to your vibrations and it’s not your job to worry how you’ll manifest.
Regardless if you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, there is one thing you need to do in order to live abundantly and that’s to get clear on what you want. Now before you go into a panic frenzy, it’s okay to not know exactly what it is you want but you must have an idea.
How to script
First, get clear on what you want and write it as if it’s already happened. Don’t think about how it’s going to happen, but just write it as if you already have it. It can be as long or short as you want. It can also be about one aspect of your life or your whole life in general. There are no limitations to scripting but you must also feel as if it’s already happened.
For an example: I always wanted to be an author and have a writing nook somewhere in Europe.
Today, I walked down to the cafe and ordered me a chocolate croissant and cafe latte. I took a moment for myself and decided to people watch for a bit. Afterwards, I went to the bookstore and browsed around for new inspiration and found just the book! I decided to grab lunch at the park with a good friend of mine as we chatted for hours about what happening including my upcoming book tour. I got back home and settled in my writing nook with so many ideas from the conversation I just had. I’m really loving the weather right now. It’s raining as we speak and hearing the rain is calming and soothing.
This is a very short version of what a “day as an author” looked like in my head. It’s detailed, but not to the point where it distracts me from the whole point of the exercise, which is to let things flow. I wasn’t worrying about which country in Europe I would living at or how realistic it would be to rent an apartment there. I wasn’t worried about my first two books that I “published” and how it was published, and I didn’t have a picture of my friend I had lunch with. Everything I had written flowed naturally and almost easily – and it should be.
Now, give it a try!
