I absolutely love today’s Abraham-Hicks quote. And I see it come in to play—from both sides—almost every day. Here’s the quote:
“You cannot receive vibrationally something that you are not a vibrational match to. And so, bless those who are finding abundance. And in your blessing of them and their abundance, you will become abundant, too. But in your cursing of their abundance, you hold yourself apart from it. It is a law – it is a powerful law.”
Let me explain what I mean by ‘from both sides.’ Side one: We all know people who get all pissy and nasty when someone else does good. Let’s use money as an example cause I’m thinking everyone can relate to it. When someone else makes a lot of money they may say, “Well they obviously cheated at something,” or “He’s just a capitalist jerk,” or “He doesn’t need more money, other people need it so much more, it’s just not fair.” Unfortunately, if you’re one of these people, you’re causing more harm to yourself then you know. When you condemn someone for say making too much money, you’re basically telling the Universe that you don’t want any money. The energy behind all that complaining is saying ‘money is bad so please don’t give me any.’ You’re coming from a place of anger, resentment, and jealousy. However, when you congratulate that person, now that’s different. By saying things like, “Well done! Congratulations! I’m so happy for you!” You’re saying, ‘Wow! That money is awesome! I like the idea of that! Think of all the good I could do with that money too! Yes please Universe, bring me some of that!’ Can you feel the difference in those two ways of thinking?
Now here’s side two: Because of the people we all know in our lives that act out like those in the Side one example, we ourselves, when we come in to something good, can often downplay it. We think we’re acting in the best interest of everyone to. We say things like, “Oh, I was just lucky. It’s no big deal. Now I can pay off a bunch of debt. It’s probably going to cause more problems. It’s really not that much money.” Because we don’t want to make anyone feel bad, or we don’t want to get anyone angry, we play down our own successes, our own abundance. Now, of course, I’m not saying that we should run around the neighborhood telling all our friends how much money we have an how glad we are it’s ours and not theirs. What I’m saying is we can’t make money bad. In our cursing of someone else’s abundance we hold it apart from ourselves and in the cursing of our own abundance we do the same.
It doesn’t have to be about money. It could be a house. A car. A pool. A job. A new smartphone. But whatever it is….
Bless that abundance and let it flow.
