Have you ever wondered about the law of abundance and how to apply it to your business? In this blog, I’m going to share two incredibly significant texts, both of which were introduced to me by my mentors, and both of which have led to more abundance in my business.
First up is, You2 by Price Pritchett.
This is an amazing text. It’s a very short read, and every chapter is short a two-fold spread, so you can really take it in bite-sized chunks. Part of the value of this text is in the deep nectar of the language—there’s a transmission that goes beyond just the content of the words and really speaks to the energetics of the law of abundance.
The quote I’m sharing comes from the first chapter—Focusing on Ends Rather Than Means:
“You don't have to know how you're going to get there, but you need to know where you want to go.”
In other words, you don’t actually have to take responsibility for the how of getting to wherever it is that you want to go. You will be guided there. You will be given instructions to get there.
Your job is to be clear about where you're going—crystal clear. You also have to know where you are, and then you have to be willing to listen and follow the instructions that you're given. But the first thing you absolutely have to do is get really clear about your vision.
Now, we’re going to shift to one of my favorite books, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles.
For this one, I’m going to share the very first sentence of the very first chapter:
“Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich.”
When you think of the ideals of poverty, particularly in spiritual or religious communities, oftentimes poverty is associated with humility, service, a sense of generosity for others. And there are many spiritual traditions that include poverty as a kind of renunciation, a way of connecting to god, a way of loving god - and this is very, very powerful.
But here, Wattles is pushing against this. I have all of my group programs start with this sentence just to see where they get stuck, where they get activated, what material comes up, because it's a very provocative sentence?
For the purposes of this post, let's assume that we're all on the same page about this and that we all agree. So then if you have that as your foundation—that it is your right to be rich and that you can't live your purpose unless the financial component is included, then what does that mean for you? What is it that you are choosing, what is it that you're not choosing? How do you need to shift your vision, your action, in order to claim all that is rightfully yours, all that is in fact necessary for you to live your full purpose in this lifetime?
To go deeper into all of this material and really begin to apply to law of abundance to your business, watch the video below, where I also share two MORE books:
And in the comments below, I’d love to know ... What does abundance look like to you? What would it look like for you to choose a surplus of money, of time, of friendship, of love, of orgasm, of support? What really lights you up when you think about claiming abundance?
