Shifting Lack Perception to Unlimited Possibility
Every once in a while a beautiful private jet will land at our local airport. When it does, my first reaction is to say, “Good for them.” At one time I would not have been so generous with my positive comment. I may have judged the passengers as people who have taken from others to enjoy such luxuries in their life. This was clearly a consciousness of lack, and not an awareness of abundance. What do I mean when I say a consciousness of lack?
Oftentimes we are taught by those around us that the world has an inadequate or limited supply of everything: a lack of money, a lack of good jobs, on and on it may go. When we maintain a consciousness of lack, we will then see proof of our beliefs, thus re-enforcing our beliefs. So, if we believe that there is not enough money to go around, we will experience a lack of money in our lives, again proving our belief that there is a lack of money.
In grade school science we were taught that two magnets will be attracted to each other, this is where we learned the term, like attracts like. If we begin to accept that our thoughts and beliefs act like powerful magnets, we begin to understand that any thought and belief we carry within us will attract similar energy back to us, again proving our belief. If we see lack in our lives, then we radiate the energy of lack and because of this, we will experience lack through our consciousness of lack.
This may become a never ending cycle that will dictate the outcome of our lives, a life of lack in this case. From this powerful belief, we will be teaching those around us that lack exists in the world and now this becomes a seed in their consciousness.
What changed my consciousness of lack, to get me to a place of appreciating the abundance that is all around me?
First, I realized there are endless possibilities in the world in which we live, and that I was blocking these possibilities from entering my life through my consciousness of lack. Also, I began to understand that my consciousness would never shift from lack to abundance as long as I criticized those who lived in abundance. Meaning, that as I criticized those on the private jet, my life would be stuck in the mentality of lack.
Is it that easy?
Maybe not, but as long as we view the world through the eyes of lack we will never begin to experience the abundance available to us. Remember, where we place our focus is how we will direct our lives. Nowadays when I drive down the road and see one of those very large motor homes that is as big as a full-size bus, I say to myself, “I can afford that motor home, but it’s a little too big for me.” What that does for me, is it elevates my consciousness from one of lack to one of abundance.
When we release our consciousness of lack, and welcome into our lives an awareness of abundance, the world begins to shift for us, and good things will fall into place. We will be welcoming abundance into our lives, as we strengthen the energy of abundance in our consciousness. When this powerful shift takes place within us, the world now becomes a place of joy and happiness, because we have elevated our consciousness to one of endless possibilities.
We have everything to gain by releasing our lack mentality and accepting a consciousness of abundance. Also, we will be teaching those around us that life is indeed abundant, and that we can break the cycle of lack consciousness.
Give it a try, and who knows, maybe that beautiful private jet will be in your future.
