abundance


"Abundance invites us to live the life we desire instead of settling for less."
- Gail McMeekin

When I was just getting started blogging, I would often read or hear something and I would hear an almighty growl in my head. It would be a deep, grumbling roar that came from the bottom of my gut. It was the sound of something resonating deeply; the sound of me remembering my wild woman. I haven't heard her for awhile, and I had almost forgotten about her, but then the sound appeared again today when I was reading a chapter in Gail McMeekin's book.

It began when I read, "Abundance beckons as a state of mind, beginning with gratitude for what you already have and followed by a vision of what you want to create in your life." Rrrrrrrrr.... Then I read, "Prosperity consciousness demands that you look beyond the energy of money and own up to what it is that truly nourishes you." RRRrrrrr....

Then I rejoiced when McMeekin spoke about being IN your body as key to owning our power and speaking our truth. "As women, we need to find pride in our physicalness and trust our internal knowledge. Body, mind, and spirit - it's all connected." RRRRrrrrrrr.....

And there it was again: the same message from the Universe nudging me in my direction. "This world needs women who will speak their truth and actively participate." Then I heard it, loud and clear...

RRRRRrrrrrrrrRRrrrrOOOOOOOOoooAAAAAAaaaaaaRRRRRrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...and I said, "Welcome back, I've missed you."

Your example of embracing the Wild Woman inside of you lends me courage. I have noticed an abundance of these examples lately so thank you.

And what a beautiful photo.

Claim your authenticity and continue to roar back at the Universe. I think it gets a kick out of it! :)

With abundant energy,
Sara

What a wonderful post! Thanks for reminding me about being in my body. Somehow I totally missed that line when I read the chapter. How in the world did that happen? Right now, I'm really struggling with my body, so this was a VERY timely reminder. Thanks again!

I can hear that rumbling across the pond, that rousing of the wild woman within. I wonder what she's going to get up to know that she's awoken.
