How you can learn to embrace abundance
A purpose-driven life of joy and abundance; sounds good, right? Yet while we understand the sense of purpose and the feeling of joy, what does it mean to live abundantly? Without a true understanding of abundance and the power it bestows, you may find yourself showing up every day – without the ability to truly reap the rewards later. For me, abundance is about overflow. I like to look at nature as a classic example. Often described as ‘abundant’, nature – in its many beautiful forms – always finds a way. Long after we humans are gone, nature will endure and continue to grow through the cracks. In that sense, to be abundant is to be unstoppable! But how can we embody this abundance and apply it to our daily lives? We’ll take a look at the 4 levels of what I like to call the ‘Abundance Pyramid’, and how understanding it can help you lead a purpose-driven life.
The 4 levels of the Abundance Pyramid
You may not have heard of the Abundance Pyramid, but it’s a great way of deepening our collective understanding. When it comes to taking that leap, I work with people when they are in a place of progression and it’s conducive for them to move with more flow – and into the overflow of abundance. Once we find ourselves at that stage of our journey, we can start to think about stepping into abundance more consciously and more powerfully. Consisting of 4 levels, the Abundance Pyramid is made up of the following layers:
Just because you’re making lots of money, doesn’t mean you’ve departed from scarcity. Through choosing to compete and not collaborate with others, you are automatically shutting yourself (and others) off to abundance. Only through sharing this wealth (even if that be your wealth of knowledge), and recognizing there is enough for everyone, can you start to progress further up the pyramid towards abundance.
Moving onto stability; this is when the volume of water coming in and out of the bathtub remains the same, and is keeping you warm and clean. Stability could be about your income balancing, but equally about how you are feeling. Stability looks different for all of us, yet ultimately it signals that our foundations are strong and that we are ready to walk the path to freedom if we so choose to do so.
To put it simply, freedom is when the income you have flowing in doesn’t require the same amount of your time and energy to generate it. This may be because your business is now automated, or you have sufficient income streams from elsewhere that allow you to take your foot off the gas. Ultimately, it’s about the ability to maintain that same quality of life – minus the level of input.
So, you’ve made it to abundance, but what does that look like? This will of course be different for everyone. Yet fundamentally, it’s at this point that your greatest needs are met. Not only that, but there is sufficient overflow for you to continue your quest beyond the horizon. Whether this means thinking about your legacy, making a contribution, or expanding further. Abundance gives you the power to manifest these things from a position of ultimate strength.
Finding your (over)flow
The road to abundance is of course a challenge. But without the mental, emotional, or even physical stress holding you back, this peak can be reached sooner. The weight we give to our everyday obstacles, while often warranted, can cause us to veer off track or find ourselves in a stuck state. There could be millionaires still experiencing scarcity because they choose not to let go of full autonomy. Finding your flow, and then moving into overflow, isn’t about losing control however. Rather, the road to abundance gives you more control over your own endeavours the further you progress – with infinite opportunities beyond the current commitments weighing you down all these years.
The Abundance Pyramid is not a myth
And neither is your future life of purpose and joy! We are all deserving of a reality where we can manifest our own happiness; abundance is just another tool to help us get there.
