Enjoy Your Exercise

When designing your own exercise program, the most important thing to consider is do you enjoy it? If you enjoy it, you will keep doing it without constant self-reminders. Maybe you love swimming, tennis, basketball, hiking, cycling -- find your passion and go with it. Not only will you keep on your program, you will bring joy and lightness to your life.

Personally, I take a nature hike with my dogs every morning, and I love to work in the garden, digging new beds, weeding, etc. These activities give me enjoyable times and a variety of exercise.

Attracting Resources in Abundance

Abundance sometimes comes as "stuff" (needed or wanted items) rather than cash. Often you can obtain items you want for pennies on the dollar, or even free . This keeps more funds available for the “jars” system or other savings system you may employ. Keep your eyes open and allow what you need to come into your life experience.

Building Habits of Abundance

To change habits requires some positive feedback for behaviors and habits which will take you to who and where you want to be.

  • Key Action Items to start with:
    • Notice how you feel when you stick to your commitments.
    • Join or create a support group which will acknowledge you as you acknowledge them. You4ia!  is a great place to find co-creators.
    • Reward yourself when you achieve a goal. Celebrate!

Define Your Abundance

Here is a little exercise to help you set intentions and focus on what you want.

It's up to you to define what abundance means to you. You are in abundance when  your daily life is aligned with your inner desires. So to achieve abundance, you need to know yourself. Write in your Abundance Notebook or personal journal what abundance means to you. Use one or more of the following items as a guide:

Follow Your Bliss


Accept the fact that the achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness -- not pain or mindless self-indulgence -- is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values

-- Ayn Rand from Atlas Shrugged

Celebrate the Positive

“Talent is always conscious of its own abundance, and does not object to sharing.”
---Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Celebrating the positive in your life opens your being to receive more, and inspires your imagination and creativity. Exploring new ways of celebration helps to expand your being beyond your comfort zone, so that you can receive more. Do you remember a time when you were celebrating and happy and wanted to take a “risk” of trying something you have never done before? Perhaps it was just saying “Hi” or “Nice Day!” to a stranger. How great did that feel?


Intentions Are Powerful

Believe me, you can have anything you want--and in abundance-when you learn to tune into the power within, an infinitely greater power than electricity, a power you have had from the beginning.

~ Roger McDonald (from Message of a Master)

Some years ago, in an alternative financial workshop I attended, I was instructed to write a "vow of poverty" in conjunction with setting up a spiritual ministry or church.  So I wrote it up and signed it. In the next year, 2001, I lost nearly all my life savings in some investments that in retrospect I realized were extremely risky. Fast forward to 2006: I decided that I'd had enough of the poverty vibration and burned my vow of poverty document. Then I wrote up a replacement document with an intention of abundance. The very next day, I received an unexpected check in the mail for over $17,000!
