Abundance Thinking = Believe it even when you can’t see it

What is Abundance Thinking and what does it have to do with a foggy day?

This morning I walked outside and the other side of the Loch was gone, disappeared, vanished.

No matter how hard I looked, no matter what I did, I just could not see the other side of the Loch.  For all intents and purposes, it wasn’t there… Logic told me that it was simply obscured by the foggy mist that had descended – but if I hadn’t seen it before, how would I know for sure?  How would I know the other side of the Loch didn’t simply disappear into nothingness?

knew that on the other side of the Loch there was a mountain, and a couple of houses, and trees… but at that moment, I couldn’t see them.  All I had was my memory of them.

It was easy for me to keep my faith that at some point they would reappear because, after all, I had already seen them and knew they were there…

But, what if you’ve never seen what you want?  What if you have never even seen anyone else achieve what you want?  How do you keep the faith when you look out and all you see is foggy mist?

Imagine it!  See your goal, your dream, so clearly in your mind that you just know it is there – like I knew the other side of the Loch was there even though I couldn’t see it at that moment.

“What is now proved was once only imagined.” – William Blake.  Blake was a poet born in 1757, and his statement is just as true now as it was then.

“Imagination is more important that knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein

Former Navy SEAL commander, Mark Divine, is quoted as saying, “before we win in reality, we need to win in our minds. We should visualize winning with all the details as if it were happening for real.”

…and for me, ‘winning’ is living your best life, realising your dreams, being your best you, and as Joseph Campbell said, following your ‘bliss’.

Abundance Thinking is about focusing on what you want – the big goals, the little goals, the simple life moments that bring you joy – and nothing else.

Yes, bills will come in – but focus on how wonderful it was to have whatever it is for which you are now paying.

Yes, it may appear to others that you are so far from achieving your goals that it looks to them as though it will never happen… but stay focused on your imagined reality… stay focused on your image of the other side of the Loch…

One day – and perhaps sooner than you might expect – something will happen and the fog will lift and your goal will be right there in front of you…
