What Is The True Meaning Of Abundance?

what is your meaning of abundanceWhen we talk of the meaning of abundance, it can have so many connotations. There are those who think being abundant is having lots of money. Abundance to me is much more than that. You can be abundant in love, abundant in life’s blessings as well as abundant with material things.

Being abundant is all about being happy with who you are too. Many of us crave more riches, but riches bring their own levels of stress and pressure. Being abundant in more than money is vital for our well being in my opinion. Why? Because the feeling of abundance MATTERS!

Abundance Means More

Of course abundance means more, but more of what exactly? Life’s treasure is love. When you’re abundant in love, you have a “warm” feeling that is hard to describe. Having that feeling brings more to you because you get “in the zone” and more likely to receive it. When you GIVE that same feeling out you will get more back. It’s just the way it works. When you give love to a pet like a dog or a cat, they give you love back by the bucketful don’t they?

These feelings can be transformed into our business life too. Loving what you do can be seen as an extension of that feeling of having what you want. Of course, the business doesn’t fulfil every need until it becomes successful, and that is your job. Answer me this – do you feel it easier to motivate yourself to take inspired action when you feel good, or when you’re under pressure?

I know when I take my best forms of action.

Receiving Abundance Into Your Life

It’s my belief that you must be prepared to accept that abundance comes in many forms. When you do this, you are more inclined to be able to receive more. If you believe that abundance is having more money, that’s fine, but to receive you must be in a place where you are feeling abundant enough to give something away.

It doesn’t have be a lot, but a little here and there will mean you feel as though you have more than enough. It can be giving a little larger tip, putting a little more into the collection tins for charity. You could, as we do in the UK, give some of your older clothing to the local charity shops to help them in their efforts to build funds. In all these ways you can be seen to be helping someone who has a need that may be greater than your own.

With the news seemingly being full of messages of killing, hatred and violence, there is so much to be said for the abundance of love. Love as they say conquers all. People all over the world give love. In fact, it’s the vast majority of receive abundance of fear or happinesspeople who do this. It’s the distinct minority who preach hatred and cause the news to be full of the debilitating series of events all over the world. It is much easier to receive hatred if you program yourself to react to it. By giving of more love, you receive the abundance of that magical feeling more and more.

Being happy in your own skin is important. Your life, your business will benefit from it. Having abundance of anything and accepting it into your life helps with all of this. This happiness will help you to be more productive and ready to receive the abundance you deserve. The way to be successful is to take massive action doing what you’re happy with.

Coming from a place of fear or stress, which you can also be abundant in, will jeopardize your progress. Be prepared to receive good things because you give out good things and your happiness flourishes, take the fear and stress route and it dies, making you miserable.

Make your choice based on what you take as the meaning of abundance. Are you going to accept happiness and drive on from there, or are you going to have the opinion that is “woo woo” and perhaps remain in the state of fear or stress you already find yourself in?

To the future

  • Hi Barrie,

    Very important topic, and I agree that abundance is about much more than money.

    To start feeling better about myself I am starting some volunteering, and very much enjoying it.

    It’s with dogs – so double benefit because, as you say, they’re so loving in return.

  • Hi Barrie 🙂 😛

    Really enjoyed your post! Having the Abundance Mindset is key and so very important to attracting what you want into your life 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!!

  • Hi Barrie,

    Abundance can mean so many things to different people. I like how you mention that in order to have abundance you have to be able to give. It’s all about giving to others: love, time, and materials. I’m glad you mention that the negativity that we see is truly the minority. I belive most people do want to have a positive impact in others’ lives.

    Thanks for sharing,

    • I believe that the majority of people only want the best for people too. It was important for me to say what I feel about the minority being the negative ones. Problem seems to be the ones who listen to this and tag onto it, even though they are usually generous and kind people at heart.

  • Hi Barrie,

    I think a lot of people miss the part about abundance being so much more than having lots of money and material wealth. if we don’t feel good about ourselves, and toward others, we’re likely to lose any wealth we do get. it’s as if we don’t really think we deserve to have it.

    I like to think of money as being a tool, a means, of sharing with others some of what they have shared with me, of giving to those less fortunate than I, and of getting some of the things I can’t afford right now.

  • Hi barrie,

    I think the biggest thing that keeps people from reaching the abundance mindset it fear. they have such a fear that they’ll never have enough that, they’re right… they never do.

    Nice post, and I certainly agree with you about the importance of fixing your mindset, and focusing purely on the abundance that surrounds us.

  • Great Article, Keep it up…

  • Hi, Barrie, love the comment that ‘abundance comes in many forms’. I truly believe we don’t always recognise it when it does come, just because we were focused on something else we ‘wanted’. Everything can come to us if we let it, but not always in the order we think we might want it!

    Enjoy the journey.

  • Awesome post here barry!

    thanks for the insight, and i like your take on abundance 🙂
