The current but slowly changing system of the world is based on scarcity, a perspective of lack that encourages, values, and rewards competition. Is there really a lack of resources so that only the ones who scrupulously compete to win get to live a good life? Have you ever met a happy and kind person who was out there creating chaos just to have more money and possessions?
There is nothing wrong with having or desiring abundance but it is the way in which we think about abundance that matters. It is not that we want status or mountains of clothes but it is the love and security that we think these things would lead to. It is precisely the environments which lack kindness, love, laughter, expression, safety, intimacy, and understanding that create a perceived material lack. In a reverse situation, even a shortage of food would not be perceived as such a drastic threat to survival since the true needs of humans are being met.
Whenever I have thoughts of having to “compete” for something, be it a job or someone’s attention, or to do more so I can get more, I immediately stop myself and question my motivations. The truth is that we can’t have anything that we aren’t in resonance with, that we don’t already have. If we have to at all compromise who we are, this situation is not for us. Each of us is unique and can contribute very special things to this world – the more energy we put into knowing who we are and developing our gifts, the less we will have the urge to compete. The bonus is that opportunities and abundance will come to us as we continue to focus on doing our thing – we won’t need to chase after anything. There will be a feeling of abundance and flow.

When we say yes instead of no to situations that don’t feel good to us, when we react to people negatively because of past experiences, when we stay in situations that are toxic, when our well-meaning actions have negative consequences…we come face to face with a difficult challenge – forgiving ourselves for the blowback that follows.
Why is it so hard to forgive ourselves? A lot of us get ourselves into undesirable situations because we carry guilt and shame from the past and, as a result, we don’t believe we deserve good things in life. We feel like we are inherently bad and don’t deserve to be in positive, healthy, and loving relationships. So, we attract the opposite relationships into our reality.
Once we commit to having a better relationship with ourselves and begin to make the necessary changes (having healthy boundaries, loving from afar, expressing our needs…), our relationships with others and the quality of people we attract will improve drastically. Our point of view will become less self-centered and we will be able to better see the perspective of others. We will finally be capable of forgiving those who hurt us.
I recently published my book called 🌟🌻✨Wonderland!✨🌻🌟 It is a compilation of my short writings, poems, drawings, and photographs over the years but mostly on my trip through Iceland, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Germany, and Bosnia and Herzegovina last year. The book is part travelogue, part self-reflection, and part learning and personal growth. I hope that it motivates everyone who reads it to live a life of their dreams and to fulfill their greatest potential.🎉🙌✨✨✨
Thank you so much for all you support!!! I hope that you will find inspiration in the art, poetry, and writings!!!😘💓🌞
Lots of love and light,
