Law of Sufficiency and Abundance*
July 9, 2015 by Cathy Brown
“Sufficiency is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, that we are enough.
Now that we understand and can apply the 1st 3 laws with Trust and Acceptance let’s tackle the 4th law; the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance. This law is the glue that holds the 1st 3 laws together. This is where we make the shift from a mindset of lack and open ourselves up to receive.
There is an unlimited supply of everything and every experience; more than enough to go around. The only thing that keeps us from receiving all that we ask for is our belief that there is not enough; the lack mentality. It is a lie that we unfortunately have been brought up to believe – that there is scarcity and limitation.
The truth is, abundance is a living energy– a vibration- it’s how the whole Universe was created. One only needs to look at nature to understand the Universal Laws. Spend a day at the beach – can you count all the individual grains of sand or the drops of water in the ocean? There’s too many – there’s abundance. …so much abundance!
We create from our beliefs. When we believe we are abundant and the Universe is abundant, the world completely shifts for us. There becomes no more competition. That’s the beauty of the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance, there is enough for everybody to have what they want – without taking away from someone else. The abundance part of the law is easy.
Now…here’s the catch. The first part of this law is sufficiency. This means that in order to attract abundance into your life, we have to come from a space where we are satisfied with who we are, what we have, the money, jobs we are at etc. Maybe you can’t stand your job at the minute, but you need to be satisfied by finding positive aspects, finding the gifts it is giving you today, if you want to bring more to you.
If you are always looking outside of yourself at circumstances and situations to become more than you are, you are not in the now or appreciating what you have. If you continue to chase things outside of yourself in order to feel that you are enough, you will never feel truly satisfied. There is always more to achieve, acquire, and do. When you come from a place of feeling that everything in your life right now is sufficient, you will know great peace. When you can feel gratitude for what you currently have in your life, while at the same time feel excited for all the things you desire to manifest, you will know joy.
The starting point to ask for more…is to be satisfied with what you already have. Abundance is not just money or things. It is a principle, a law, a feeling, a vibration – an energy – it literally extends to everything. You can have an abundance of love, compassion, patience, time, opportunity to have an abundance of all good things – and that includes success, prosperity, money, and all good things life has to offer.
So how can you start applying this law right now? Be satisfied now. Start with where you are and what you have right now. Set your goals, see yourself already there, and be resolved to succeed in attaining those goals, no matter what it takes.
Manifestation happens when we can be in a place of feeling at peace with where we are, while being excited about the possibilities ahead. If you are not experiencing the kind of abundance you want, there is a reason ….it’s your limiting beliefs! If you want to change your reality from anywhere you feel lack or limitation in your life…you have to go within yourself and figure out where are you in lack.
When you are in alignment or abundance, you are in the space of allowing, you get to be a deliberate creator, by choosing to connect with abundance. When you are in a vibration in the space of satisfaction and abundance the Law of Attraction has to respond with what? MORE ABUNDANCE!
So, each day find things to be satisfied with…your body, love you are giving and/or receiving, what your children are doing, career, husband/partner, friends. Find ways to be satisfied and feel the appreciation in that satisfaction, then open up to the energy of abundance – cause’ that’s what’s allowed to come in and it will come in.
I had to learn this the hard way. While I was at Morgan Stanley, there was always big competition between our stockbrokers. There never seemed to be enough for all of us to succeed. I worked so hard, trying to beat everybody else. Yes, I made very good money, but never really seemed satisfied – never felt the joy. I had way more than I needed – but it was never enough, until I learned about this law. Then it all changed. Ever heard of a rich person that seemingly “had it all” but wasn’t happy? They did not learn and appreciate the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance.
Next week I am going to share a process/exercise you can do to increase the feeling of your satisfaction with your present lives so that you can add more abundance. It’s really fun. See ya next week!
“To be satisfied with who you are and what you have in this moment, while at the same time being excited about all the things that are in the process of manifesting in the future is to be in perfect alignment with the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance”. ~Christy Whitman

I am abundant and the Universe is abundant.
I am satisfied with all I have now and I am excited about my abundant future.
