Alphabet of Abundance
Day 13 – There is a way I can fill my true purpose in life.
We are surrounded by messages from exchanging simple texts between friends and family, subliminal messages plastered across billboards, adverts that penetrate our subconscious, to what is impressed upon us via the news and papers. It is almost an assault on our senses.
We are submerged in messages from our cultures, religions and societies, and even our environment is communicating with us too. Some of us, not all, are aware and in tune with the requirements of mother nature. We have been exchanging messages from the start of humanity and these messages have shaped our environment, our history and who we are today.
What happens when these messages are harmful, damaging or inaccurate? At best they dictate to us how we should live, who we should marry, what we should eat, read and believe, and at their very worst they cause fear, scarcity, inequality and the dehumanisation of a people.
Our whole existence is about receiving and deciphering messages every second of the day and it can be quite an overwhelming experience, if we do not get a head of the game.
When we started 21 Days of Abundance, we opened with the following quote from Gandhi “Our thoughts generate words, words generate actions, actions – habits, habits – character, and character breeds fate.” Whatever we may think about Gandhi this message is very powerful. It made me reflect on the messages we tell ourselves about who we are, what we transmit into the world and ultimately the universe. These messages have an influence and direct impact our own mental health, as well as the mental health of the people we encounter. If we are prone to taking in negative messages, it makes sense that our outlook and outward energy will also be negative, and it is the same effect for positive messages.
This is exactly what 21 Days is about.
Imagine for one second that we are aware and therefore in control of the message we receive and transmit. That is quite a powerful thought. We could change the state of the world just by the way we think and the messages we convey. We already know, that when we feel good about our life, our day is very different – a day in which we feel and know we are capable of achieving our goals.
We could think of it like this – our minds are like the sea. Deep and expansive and hold vast amounts of information. Our thoughts are like little drops water into the sea. The universe is like the ocean. As the sea rushes to submerge and become one with the ocean, so do our thoughts and actions which impact everything in our existence. If we feed our mind with thoughts of Abundance, we will act in accordance with and attract Abundance, not only for ourselves, but for every living thing in our universe. And the Universe is so clever that it yields to us what we think about the most. Based on that alone, I know what message I want to put out there.
Aside from my musings above, messages often make me think of hand written notes hidden in books, secret love notes left at coffee shops, daily affirmations and messages in bottles, that have drifted miles and miles to end up in the hands of some lucky soul. Imagine writing a special note for another human being, that you had never met. What would you want to tell them? What messages would you want to leave the world? What would be your legacy?
Keep an eye our for the messages you catch this week and see if you can make someone’s day by leaving them a secret message.
