I have been looking at abundance and found some daily statements to study. So far, all of the statements talk about the source of abundance coming from inside me. When I feel into the statements, it feels right that abundance comes from within, but I am having a hard time connecting with the abundance within me.

Why? I think that part of the problem for me is that if abundance comes from within, then I am responsible for the abundance in my life. I have known for a long time that I am responsible for the decisions that I make in my life and somehow, those decisions lead to my abundance.

In thinking about abundance coming from within, I am starting to understand that abundance and attraction are tied together. As I think and believe, so will I attract, and thus it will lead to how abundant that I am. If I believe I do not have enough money, then I will attract not enough money.

So, am I responsible for everything that I attract in my life? With my current train of thought, yes, but I am not certain that I fully believe it yet. I will work on it.

How far does my responsibility go? If my wife is in a bad mood, am I responsible for her bad mood? No. Am I responsible for making her feel better? No, though sometimes I feel that I want to do anything to make her feel better. Can I help her feel better? Yes, but it is her choice to feel better and I need to let go of any responsibility that I have in making her feel better.

But, why am I attracting my wife in a bad mood? I think that is the question. I mean, I would rather attract a happy wife all the time. Why do I do that? I think the first thing, for me, is to be aware that I have attracted this and I have a responsibility in how I respond. Then I can start to ask the following questions:

  • What is here for me to learn?
  • Am I reacting in a manner that is consistent with who I am?
  • How could I be handling this situation?
  • What can I do better next time?
  • Am I breathing?

I know this is not something that I will solve overnight, but hopefully, this is a start at opening my awareness. Having an awareness is a start to changing what I am currently doing and attracting.
