Chequing In

I've been writing abundance cheques for a few years now.
They work.
Sometimes it is hard to see how. One has to keep an open mind.
If you are expecting to win big at the lottery because you've been invoking the Law of Abundance and haven't, then you may think said cheques are a grand pile of hokum.
Such is your right.
I've noticed in my life that people who think this way come from a base of scarcity and lack. If you think you don't have enough, then that's what you get. In reality you may have more than you need, but as long as you think you don't, well, you'll be right.
There's not much can be done about those people except ignore them. I refuse to have whining, negative, toxic people in my life. They are poison. Their poison spreads and makes it easy to believe in an ever-dwindling supply of good food, clean water, and fresh air.
Who needs those people? They're energy thieves because they hate the idea that someone has what they don't.
I'd tell them to go to Hell, but they're already there.
Open you mind and-–this is more important—your heart and become aware of the abundance all around you.
If comes in many forms. You have to be open to seeing them and appreciating them both in the sense of gratitude and of understanding a thing's true worth.
One of the first forms of abundance I noticed was I had more money. Not a great lot, simply more of it, especially loonies and toonies. ($1 and $2 coins.)
This was the universe's literal way of telling me it had worked.
We've had many trips, time with friends, I've had several manuscript ideas, my husband's father has blessed us with as many fresh garden vegetables as we need and then some.
I have really good health. Yes, I have an irregular heartbeat, and yes it does get in my way occasionally, but I'm still healthy.
Yes, without writing abundance cheques I may still have had all this.
Would I have noticed?
Probably not.
But it is my position that by writing these cheques I have opened myself up to the Law of Abundance, plus opened my mind to the other Universal Laws.
These are my beliefs. You can share them or not as you see fit. But if you're writing abundance cheques and have been disappointed, then please step back and take an objective look  at your life since you started writing them.

I totally agree with you about the abundance - I've followed your example for several years now, and it has made me more aware of the abundance in my life, not necessarily of money, but we always have enough of everything we need.
Thanks for spreading the word and enlightening people to take stock of the abundance of good things in their lives!

It is, and always has been, my pleasure Bag Lady.

Something I need to do a better job of being mindful of. Thanks for the reality check . . . er, cheque. ;)

You get what you expect, and that is true in every area of life.

Glad you expect and get the good.

You're welcome, Chris.

Messymimi, that's so true. Thanks.

Thank you for making me more aware of things in my life too. I do appreciate the abundance in it's many forms.

Leah J. Utas said...

You're welcome, Reb. Glad to know it.

"Would I have noticed?" <--- That's probably the key to a lot of things. It's certainly what gratitude is about.

I only write these cheques when you remind me.. I'm bad that way. But it truly does make me mindful about what I do have. And I'm glad for it.

I do get a chuckle out of my kids finding all of these cheques one day when I'm gone. I can see them scratching their heads and wondering WTF Mom was doing. And I'm glad for that too. ;)

Glad to be of help, Hilary. I got a chuckle out of your chuckle.
