Abundance: What We Have

I had a dream last night that I was looking at my savings account total upside down and it was $375,000.  My brain was not computing that large number.  It was as if I was looking at a foreign language on the page.

Then my twin sister, Laura, sat down with me and we were talking about my financial situation.  How was I going to pay off my credit cards?

Then I looked at the number again, upside down, written in clear, larger black letters, as if someone else had written that number on this blank sheet of orange paper:

I turned to Laura and said, “I almost have half a million dollars in the bank!”  With a surprised look on my face and an open jaw, she looked at me happily surprised too that I had realized this.

“I can pay my credit cards RIGHT NOW!!!”

She looked at me again with surprise and happiness!

I felt like, I can do this.  I’ve GOT all the money I need.

What comes to me is Gratitude, for all the things I DO have.  Maybe I am receiving other things right now and money is on it’s way, but it is in CHOOSING to SEE all the things that are a blessing in my life and they are SOOOO MANY!  Wow, I am touched by this notion just writing this!

How are you grateful for the things in your life?

What do you do to honor gratitude of these things?

How can you be grateful for something you didn’t even think was possible to be grateful for?

I look forward to reading your insights and input here.

Blessings to You all!

I am grateful for you for taking the time to read this blog and respond!

Aloha, Sarah

    Wonderful post and a good reminder about the importance of being grateful (in fact, I devote an entire chapter in my book about it!). I give thanks continually throughout the day and even when I wake up at night. It keeps me content. When I lose this fervent gratefulness, I know something’s wrong and that I need to identify and tend to it.

    Dreams can be very powerful, as you know. They show us possibilities where our conscious minds cannot squelch with something so banal as reality. As a colleage said yesterday, “What is real is what IS,” (not what was, or what you think will be) and this can change at any moment.

      Thank you for sharing Amy! Like Melodie Beattie wrote,

      “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

      I will also say, it brings safety when we feel scared, it brings peace when we feel anxious, it brings more when we don’t think we have enough.

      Much Love, Sarah
