According to my gang Abraham-Hicks, “There is a Life Stream that flows to you, and this is a Stream of clarity, a Stream of wellness, a Stream of abundance…and in any moment, you are allowing it or not.” They go on to say, “What someone else does with the Stream, or not, does not have anything to do with how much of it will be left for you.” Because you see,
Abundance is abundant and there’s more than enough to go around.
That’s a hard one for people to accept. Most feel that because that Big Fat Cat over there has created a prosperous empire in business and has a massive amount of money, that a.) he/she is evil, and b.) he/she got all the money so there’s none left for me. And when they feel this about that Fat Cat, what do they do? They malign him/her. They fight against him/her. They call him/her names and try to take him/her down.
And it’s not just Big Fat Cats. Some people watch their friends or even family find success in something…a new job, more money, a new house, a new car, a pool in the backyard…and they become jealous. Instead of sending heart felt congratulations, they talk about that person, “Well I heard they had to get a loan for that car and are now in debt out the ying yang. I’D never do something SO irresponsible.” In other words, instead of being happy for our friends and their new things, we go negative because it wasn’t US who got them. We convince ourselves we never wanted them anyway because we believe there’s only so much to go around.
Most people feel that life is a competition. If your next door neighbor get’s a new ‘fill in the blank’ and you also want a ‘fill in the blank,’ you feel that because they got it first, you can’t have it because there’s only so much success to go around. So, in order to make yourself feel better, you talk trash about that thing attempting to convince yourself you didn’t want it anyway. Thereby assuring you won’t get it.
But what if, instead of being jealous and petty and trying to knock someone’s success, we hooted and hollered with happiness for them? What if, we open heartedly congratulated them? What if, we talked to them about it, and asked all about it, and continually commented and cheered about it and thereby…brought it to ourselves?
There’s more than enough to go around.
