By Sandra Miniere (USA)

Are you addicted to seeing what is missing in your life instead of the fullness that already exists? After hearing my inner voice give thanks for my lovely home and wishing it had larger rooms and more storage, I had an epiphany. Suddenly I realised that giving thanks and asking for more at the same time is a habitual pattern with me.

I thought I had overcome a deprivation mentality that began in my childhood, but apparently it still keeps me in a subtle state of longing. Instead of acknowledging and feeling the fullness of what I have, my mind focuses on something I lack. The principles of the Law of Attraction explain that longing attracts more longing. I now understand how I manifest limited abundance.

Developing an awareness of the abundant creative flow is a challenge in today’s world. Some are dealing with survival needs and others desire something or someone that will make them feel happy or fulfilled. Most of us need help focusing on gratitude and fullness instead of luck.
