I set out to look at abundance consciousness and, as so often has happened in the past, I came across one channeled message that covered the subject so well that I determined to post it in ite entirety. Here is the Arcturian Group from Jan. 2018:
“Arcturian Group Message through Marilyn Raffaele, 1/14/18,” January 14, 2018, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/01/14/arcturian-group-message-through-marilyn-raffaele-1-14-18/.
We wish to speak to the concept of money. Regardless of what country you live in, money represents a material interpretation of spiritual abundance, completeness, wholeness. Because humans are creators, they have over time and through the ignorance of duality and separation, created a global system of lack and limitation versus abundance (duality).
Financial abundance or the lack of it is a concept having no law to support, maintain, or sustain it. It simply exists and will continue to exist as long as there is a belief in it. Wealth can easily come and just as easily go when it has been created from the energies of duality and separation.
Observe the blades of grass in a field for these represent the expression of the law of abundance. Could an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Divine creator consciousness lack anything? Lack is a man-made experience.
The temptation for most is to immediately go into denial about this, finding hundreds of reasons why this is could not be true and why lack is real and money is limited. We would say: Yes, lack is indeed very real for those suffering the consequences of this belief. We do not ask you to deny appearances, we suggest that, as with everything in the outer scene, you are now ready to look and embrace a deeper realization regarding abundance.
Even if lack or limitation is not a part of your experience in this lifetime, begin to observe and register abundance in every area of ordinary life. This practice will begin to form a deeper consciousness of omnipresent abundance and re-train the mind to recognize it easily. Shift your thoughts to truth whenever tempted to give power to appearances of lack, never denying them, but rather translating them.
The belief that a bomb-proof shelter or plenty of diamonds and gold constitutes safety and supply will act to perfectly create separation from true safety and supply. Instead of dwelling on what you do not have or wish you had, begin to take note of the ordinary forms of abundance you see around you–someone’s nice clothes, or a beautiful home, the infinite forms and varieties in nature, and whatever comes to your awareness.
Through acknowledging without emotional attachment the infinite forms of abundance all around you, you develop a consciousness of abundance. The mind will begin to automatically respond to and integrate abundance as an ever-present reality which with time becomes a new and higher state of consciousness.
As you reprogram your mind to think abundance instead of lack, begin to express gratitude for everything in your life. Simple ordinary things such as a dog’s wagging tail when he sees you, the neighbor’s hello, or an unexpected hug are easy to disregard as being ordinary and unimportant but they are forms of abundance which when acknowledged as such, will serve to reprogram the mind away from thoughts of scarcity and into “I have.”
There are many simple and basic ways to get the abundance energy flowing like giving away things you no longer use or need or dropping a coin or two however small into some donation jar. When these things are done with the realization that it is not the amount of the donation that is important, but rather the awareness of the Infinite Source of it, you will be expressing abundance on a much higher level and it will begin to multiply. Begin to pour physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually through a consciousness of “I have because I AM.”
When you pay bills, do it in an awareness of your payment as not coming from you personally because in and of yourself you have no abundance, but rather that it is flowing through you from an Infinite Source–you are simply transferring money from your left hand to your right, because there is only one.
If you believe that the supply of anything is personally yours, it will immediately become subject to limitation where it can and often does run out. Your work is to attain that state of consciousness that realizes supply as an ever present flow of Divine energy that never will or could run dry.
Attaining a consciousness of I have does not happen overnight because beliefs of lack and limitation are firmly entrenched in world consciousness as the result of hundreds of lifetimes lived firmly entrenched in the experiences of lack and limitation as well as with great wealth. However, know that there is not now nor could there ever be a law to support scarcity.
This is not to say that once you become aware that there is a the law of abundance, you then sit doing nothing, awaiting your personal bag of money to drop from the sky. Rather, you take whatever ordinary human footsteps you are guided to take (get a job, be it any job in order to get the flow going, or invest as you are guided, etc.), but take these actions with higher awareness, one that does not give the power of abundance to them.
Money or goods that manifest out of an attained consciousness of spiritual abundance, can and will re-appear if lost because the substance from which these things were formed (consciousness) is still present. You are creators creating all aspects of daily life according to your attained state of consciousness.
Abundance is an ever-present reality. It never changes or becomes non-existent because it is a facet of Creator Energy, held forever in place by Divine law.
Regardless of your present financial circumstances, begin to evolve more deeply into the truth of supply as being spiritual, not material, while refusing to endow either good or bad appearances with power.
If you are wealthy, open your consciousness to more than limited third-dimensional concepts about investments, wealth, banking, and personal accomplishment. If you are presently experiencing lack, know that it is the manifestation of a consciousness of lack–go deeper.
Regardless of global or personal appearances, you are all ready to begin the inner work of embracing and understanding this issue in its higher reality.
