Cultivate Abundance with Yoga & Meditation
“Abundance is about being rich, with or without money.”– Suze Orman
What does “abundance” mean to you?
Abundance can relate to material possessions, such as having lots of money, comfort, wealth – and it can also relate to a mindset and heart-set of gratitude, freedom and enoughness. ???
Abundance means “overflowing” – in other words, having more than enough. It’s a knowing, a feeling and a trust in the fullness and beauty of life within and around us. ?
It’s opposite is a feeling of contraction, scarcity and fear.
Truth is, having all our material comforts and possessions in the world will not inevitably lead to happiness and fulfilment.
Instead, Abundance comes from acknowledging the great gifts that we all have within us and all around us. ?
When we feel abundant – with love, connection, support, inspiration, nature, beauty… only then can we feel truly happy and free! ?
So how can we cultivate more of an abundance mindset & heartset?
The simplest path to feeling abundance is to practice daily gratitude and appreciation for life in its fullness as it is, and also practice trust in the process and great mystery of life.
Take a few moments to consider and/or journal about your relationship to abundance, both in the material and financial sense, and also in the spiritual and heart-based sense:
?Where in your life do you feel abundant?
?Where in your life do you desire to feel more abundant
?What are you grateful for today?
?Where do you lack trust in life?
?What are some ways that you practice trusting more in life, in yourself, in the ever-unfolding mystery of life?
Let’s Practice: Laksmi Meditation with Abhaya / Fearlessness Mudra
Lakshmi is a goddess from the Hindu tradition who represents, wealth, love, beauty, grace, and lovely things. She is the goddess of abundance and is happy to be generous with us especially if we treat the earth and all of her splendours with tenderness and respect, and that we notice and delight in the wonder around us, the people we love, and that we listen to and honour the longings of our souls.
For this meditation, we emulate the mudra – energetic gesture that the image of Laksmi is expressing through her two front hands to help us cultivate a sense of abundance,
- Sit in a meditation pose with your spine nice and long.
- Raise your right hand shoulder height, palm facing outwards, fingers extended pointing upward, in a gesture of opening and receptivity. The wrist is bent at a right angle with the forearm. The left hand is hip height, palm facing downward in a gesture of giving and letting go.
- Take some deep breaths to allow the flow of prana – life force energy – to fill you up with courage and peace.
- Relax and make yourself comfortable.
- As you inhale feel yourself receiving abundance in your life through your right hand, and as you exhale, feel yourself giving it all way.
Hold this position for 5-10 mins everyday, or as long as you can, and then release gently.
? Notice how you feel:
Are you more calm and relaxed?
Do your emotions feel settled?
Do you feel more abundant
Do you feel more fearless?
