I'm sure that most people would love to have more abundance in their life. Before we can attract something, we must identify what that something is. What does abundance mean to you? Does it mean owning expensive cars, fancy watches, or diamond rings? Living a lavish lifestyle or married to the hottest guy or girl?
In order to manifest what you want in life, you must create a crystal clear picture of that thing. So let's paint a crystal clear picture of what abundance looks like in your life.
Maybe abundance means not living paycheck to paycheck. It could show up in the form of good relationships, trust and clear communication or finally meeting the person who you could see yourself spending the rest of your life with.
The first step is to define abundance according to your specific wants and needs.
Where may you feel a longing for something greater? How could you fill that longing with more abundance?
The next step is to identify how you view that thing you want to have more of.
If you want to have more money, look at your current viewpoint of money.
If you want to have a loving relationship, look at your current viewpoint of love and relationships.
I am always amazed by how much our mindset shapes our reality. Oftentimes, if you want to attract more of something into your life then you have to shift your mindset about that particular thing.
Abundance is the opposite of scarcity.
What if you grew up poor? I had to check my mom's wallet every day before school to see if she had any leftover change for lunch. I had to pay for my lunch with change. It was embarrassing. At least I got money sometimes to buy my lunch, otherwise, I got the free lunch of whatever they served that day.
Whenever I asked my Dad for some money, his reply was always, "Carrie, I have to pay car insurance!" I grew up with a scarcity mindset. I have always shopped at discount stores and rarely buy anything at full price. Can you relate?
Your mindset about money directly correlates to the amount of money you have.
The same theory can be applied to your relationships. Your mindset about your relationships directly correlates to the amount of healthy or unhealthy relationships you have. (Think about that).
Your mindset about your job and your career directly correlate to the success of your earnings and happiness.
You define what abundance means to you. That is, you have the power to define what abundance means for you in your life, for your career, your health, love and relationships, time, and money freedom. Your mindset shapes your reality.
Focus On Abundance
Get a journal and everyday list at least 10 things you are grateful for. You can be grateful for what you have now and what you will have in the future.
Practice Positive Self Talk
Your thoughts give off an energetic signal into the Universe. Make a conscious effort to cancel any negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts.
Create a Vision of your Future
Like I said in the beginning, you must define what abundance looks like in your life. Be extremely specific. If you want more money, define the amount of money you want to attract. The Universe cannot guess what you want. You must define it exactly in order to attract it. If you want love, define exactly what love means for you. Write it down and read it out loud every day.
Become a Gracious Giver
You don't attract what you want, you attract who you are. If you want to receive more in any area of your life then you must give more in that area of your life. If you want more love - give more love. If you want more money - define what you want to do with that money and give more in that area (by whatever means you have available). Thoughts are a currency.
Bless Others Who you Perceive as Abundant
Is there someone you look up to or view as being abundant? Send them a blessing each day. Don't do it because you want what they have. Do it as an unselfish offering and simply a blessing. When you bless others without expectations you get what you give.
Find an affirmation that suits your desires and practice speaking that affirmation out loud multiple times per day.

TIPS FOR SHIFTING FROM A LACK MENTALITY TO AN ABUNDANT MINDSET
We live in an abundant universe. There is a lack of consciousness and a lack of distribution, but there is not a lack of abundance and energy.
Life is not happening to you, life is happening through you.
You are not a victim of the circumstances in your life; you are generating your experience of those circumstances.
When you say yes to the dreams of your heart, you will feel a greater amplification, more aliveness, more energy, and things begin to get easier.
Consider this: Instead of looking at what you don’t have and what’s wrong with it, pause for a moment and begin mentally to accept the great blessing that your life is right now. Take the good that you do have and be grateful for it. Change your mindset and change your reality.
