Do You Believe in Abundance?

A young Bighorn Sheep roots among the rocks for food. The photo was taken just west of the lookout at Abraham Lake along Highway 11. Sheep commonly feed there.

Abundance comes to you in the manner in which you believe in it.
If you think you lack, you do.
If you believe you have plenty, you do.
Many of us look at this photo and see bare ground and rock. The sheep knows the food is there, it simply takes a little digging.

Tomorrow is the new moon. It’s at 10:14 a.m. in Edmonton and within a few minutes of that elsewhere in the province. It’s time to write another abundance cheque.

Will you do a bit of digging or walk away because it’s just a bunch of rocks?

Very thought-provoking, Leah. We often find nourishment of sorts in the most unlikely places.. and people.

Good post, dfLeah. We often forget to appreciate the things we have an abundance of and focus on what we are lacking.
Thanks for the reminder!

Leah J.Utas said...

Thank you, Hilary. Yes, we certainly do.

df Bag Lady - It's easier to list what we lack than it is to note what we have.

Gotta say it makes me glad I'm not a bighorn sheep. Does make me realize how abundant my life is--I don't have to dig through rocks for my breakfast!

Leah J.Utas said...

Our lives are abundant, Crabby. It just has to be acknowledged.

Good post Leah. As usual you make me think about what I have. Thank you! I have to go dig rocks now ;)

Leah J.Utas said...

Good for you, Reb. Happy digging.

What a wonderful way of looking at the world.

On a lighter note, my little miniature Schnauzer definitely embraces this idea. Going on a walk is like a buffet for him. Worm on the sidewalk? Puppy protien! Weeds in the lawn on the corner? Schnauzer salad!

I read on an internet site that, if you make your own abundance check, you will have better results if you use yellow paper, like from a legal pad. But plain white paper works, too.

Leah J.Utas said...

Scrumpy's Baker - Your puppy sounds very happy.

Boots586 - I didn't know that. Thanks. Why yellow?

This is from a Yahoo site about the Chinese law of abundance.

Sample check:
You can use a real check, but if you do so, DO NOT void the check or the abundance will be "reclaimed." It is best to make your own fake check, and using yellow paper affords a greater chance of receiving greater abundance. Your fake check does not have to be this neat -- it can be handwritten on a yellow legal pad, if you wish! (Just make sure all the appropriate lines are there and filled out or left blank, accordingly.)

Sorry it doesn't say why yellow works better.

Thanks Boots586.
