I believe in the power of intention.
I am not talking about just putting a photo up on the wall of a Porsche and then *poof* a Porsche appears on your doorstep.
I mean true, heartfelt intention. The kind of intention that is so in alignment with your purpose, your path and your true self that the Universe actually smiles when you set it.
As regular readers of my blog know I have been studying Reiki and through my studies I have been reconnecting with a former love of crystals. Most mornings after I am done getting dressed I pick one or two crystals from a bowl on my intention altar and I take a moment to think about what qualities I want to invoke for the day. I pick the stones at random, my knowledge of crystals and their meanings being limited, and I trust that whichever ones I pick are the right ones. I hold them in my hands and infuse some Reiki healing into them while focusing on the intention.
This morning I picked out my stones and set the intention for abundance, financial abundance. It may not be the most spiritual of requests but it felt appropriate to me for the day.
In the afternoon while going to the store I saw a woman at the side of the road. She was holding a sign that read, “Single Mom. Just Laid off of Work. Please Help.”
Sadly it’s not the first time I have seen someone asking for help in my town. I always feel compelled to help but for some reason this woman touched me. I only had $2 in cash on me, I gave it to her and the look in her eyes showed me her gratitude-so much so that I felt compelled to help more. There was something in her story that just moved me so I picked up some groceries for her.
I am not sharing this story to toot my own horn. Personally I feel what I did was the bare minimum one human being should do for another in need. Rather I am sharing this story because of what happened to me after I left her.
I felt rich.
I felt, in that moment, the abundance that is already my life. I realized all we have both materialistically but even more the beauty that is my home and my family. I suddenly started to realize how much more simply we could live. How so many of the things we value are really not needed.
I found my abundance.
It had been there all along.
The Universe provides us answers when we ask.
All we ever need, want or desire is right within reach.
I hope this finds you with abundance.
Until next time….
