Excerpt from the Winter 2003 Newsletter

Abundance is a state of consciousness. It is not an object that we acquire, but rather an energy from which we create the cornucopia of our lives. The energy of abundance is loving, trusting, generous, open, creative, confident, and courageous. When we live in a state of abundance we know that there is always enough to go around, that the more we give from the heart, the more we are able to receive. We enhance our abundance by being grateful for all the things in our lives, by concentrating our attention on positive choices instead of focussing on all of the things that we don’t have, or feel we don’t deserve, or think that we have been deprived of unjustly.

Lack of abundance is not just about money, we can feel a lack of abundance in many areas - relationships, family, work, health etc. Lack of abundance is fuelled by fear - fear that there is not enough to go around, that we are unworthy, that some aspect of our lives that we see as a limitation will keep us from achieving the abundance we seek.

Abundance, on the other hand, is fuelled by love - love for ourselves, for others, for All That Is. When we accept the energy of Abundance we are aware of all the wonderful gifts that Life has to offer. We are generous because we know that we are all connected, so what we give to others we give to ourselves. We also know that the Universe will always provide for our needs.

Abundance is an energy and energy follows thought. So if we spend our time thinking about all of the things that we don’t have, then we attract this same energy of lack. But if we choose to place our attention on the positive aspects of our lives, no matter how seemingly small, we attract the energy of abundance. We can choose to view every aspect of our lives and our surroundings as a beautiful gift from the Universe, or we can choose to concentrate our attention on all the things we think are missing or unattainable.

Some mornings we wake up on the wrong side of the bed and during the day things just seem to go from bad to worse. Other days, we start off in a good mood and everything seems to go our way. In the first instance we were generating a negative energy field and we attracted other negative energy. In the latter instance, our energy was positive and attracted similar positive energies. It’s that simple - the law of attraction. That’s how abundance works.

Our thoughts are more powerful than we realise - so thinking negative thoughts about ourselves can become self-fulfilling prophecies. “I’m really stupid”, “I’ll never get a good job”, “No-one could love someone like me”. If we are saying these things to ourselves, then this is also the energy that we are generating. If we change this negative self-talk into positive, loving thoughts about ourselves and our ambitions in life, then we radiate a positive energy that will attract the abundance that we are seeking.

Here’s a little recipe for inviting abundance into your life:

  • Count your blessings.
  • Banish all negative self-talk.
  • Be generous.
  • Trust you will always have what you need.
  • Be open to receiving abundance.

There are many, many essences that can assist us in welcoming abundance into our lives. A few of them are listed below, by producer.

Pacific Essences

The Pacific Abundance Essence is a combination essence that aligns Body, Mind, Emotions, and Spirit to act in a unified manner to achieve individual goals while forging a connection with the larger flow of all of life. It promotes “abundance consciousness”, alleviates self doubt, encourages self worth, and promotes willingness to receive and participate in the flow. It is an essence of transformation of consciousness.

For those who want to consciously work on bringing abundance into their lives, Pacific Essences has designed the Abundance Programme. It comes with an exercise booklet, an audio tape with 4 guided meditations, 2 bottles of Abundance essence and one bottle of Abundance oil. The purpose of this 22 Day Programme is to create a new framework for manifesting Abundance at any and all levels of your life. You may choose your focus to be money, relationships, work, family, health, or any area where you are experiencing lack or scarcity. Each exercise is designed to release “stuff” which no longer serves you, or to assist you in creating a particular experience of Abundance in your life. Essentially the Programme, along with the use of the Abundance Essence and Oil, will repattern cellular memory so that you can experience your own inner power to manifest exactly what you want.

South African Essences

The Abundance Essence from South Africa is a combination essence that lifts our energy to a different level. We all have unconscious blockages that prevent us from accepting greater abundance into our lives. Life works on the principle of attraction. Your level of resonance dictates the people, wealth, opportunities and situations you attract. Change your resonance and you change your life. This essence works to shift poverty consciousness and deeply ingrained beliefs of victimhood, bringing a sense of self-worth, deservability and a willingness to receive. It also helps you focus your intent and enhances your creativity and courage.

Australian Bush

The combination Abund Essence from Australian Bush releases negative beliefs, family patterns, sabotage and fear of lack. Among the essences that make up this combination essence, Bluebell is for those who fear that there is not enough of to go around. They feel this way about their possessions and also their feelings of love, joy etc. Bluebell opens the heart and instils a sense of universal trust and belief in abundance. Southern Cross and Sunshine Wattle are two essences that help people be more positive about their life and life circumstances. By rising above victimisation and poverty consciousness, we can attract abundance into our lives. And finally Philotheca is for those who are excessively generous to others but who cannot accept praise or acknowledgement for themselves. This essence helps them open up to receive love and abundance into their lives.

The newest Australian Bush essence, Christmas Bell, also addresses the issue of abundance. It helps us manifest our desires. So it will be of use to anyone experiencing a sense of lack. The name is also significant in that Christmas is associated with giving and receiving, not only love but also material things as well.

Green Hope Farm

As usual, the Green Hope Farm essences bring us back to the essential spiritual truth that we are all One. Rain of Gold opens us to the flow of Divine abundance. This abundance is a natural condition of being. Rain of Gold carries this vibration of truth, and helps us to have a spiritual understanding about our endeavours. It helps us joyously release our fears about abundance so that we can confidently see how our work serves mankind and how abundance can do nothing but serve this cause.

Wild Earth Animal Essences

The animal kingdom can also help us attract abundance. Buffalo enhances our feelings of gratitude for the gift of all life. Peacock enhances our confidence and self-esteem and helps us to appreciate the abundance that is already present in our lives. Rabbit supports us in creating abundance at all levels of our lives. And finally, among the new research essences, Wild Turkey, helps us to draw abundance into our lives, and to appreciate life as a Divine blessing.

Alaskan Essences

Among the Alaskan essences, it is two essences made from the blueberry plant (one from the pollen and another from the flower) that can help us with abundance. Many of us have deeply held beliefs that we are unworthy and do not deserve to have an abundant life. These limiting thoughts interfere with our ability to receive. Blueberry Pollen helps to penetrate, breakdown and release these patterns and beliefs so that we can attract and received all that we require to live our lives to their fullest. Sometimes we block abundance because it doesn’t come in the form that we expect. Bog Blueberry helps us to be more open to the myriad ways that the bounty of the universe can flow through us. It teaches us to unconditionally accept the abundance offered with a conscious attitude of gratitude.
