40 Days of Abundant Mind

Celebrating forty days of abundance!

1. Nap Time – Some days we just need extra rest.  Today, I napped for three hours.  I feel good about that.  Caring for ourselves is just as important as caring for others.

2. Community – Encouraging a sense of belonging and support.  A good community can provide a womb-like sense of safety, love, and peace.

3. Salmon – Smoked, baked, grilled, sushi, sashimi, in soup, as a sandwich, topping a salad, mixed in pasta.  This fish gives and gives and gives.  Thank you, Salmon.

4. Compassion – My heart aches for the people of Japan.  I offer up prayers of compassion and love and watch as the world does the same. Om Mani Padme Hum.

5. Dessert for Dinner – After a long nap and a chicken enchilada lunch, dessert is all I needed.  Mellie’s Ice Cream Delight made a comeback.

6. Mercy Corps – They help.  If you are looking for a way to assist those suffering the effects of the earthquakes and tsunami of Japan, this is one organization you may consider working with.

7. Mountains – I have lived all of my life in the view of magnificent mountains.  They provide a powerful sense of grounding in a chaotic world.

8. Desert – All that open space helps me breathe and provides a sense of freedom.

9. Ocean – A powerful and rich cauldron of abundance.  Take care.  Respect.  Honor the movement of tides.

10. Over 400 Beautiful Things – I did it!  40 days of abundance mind and I now have a list of over 400 beautiful things in my life.  I will return to this list again and again.  Cyber space reminders of the abundance that surrounds me.  Stay tuned for reflections on the last 40 days.

    If you want, you can print out your 400 things and stick them up on the wall or in random places to remind you of the abundance of goodness in your life. 🙂

  2. Melissa, It has been beautiful journeying with you and gazing upon abundance. You have taught me how to see that abundance is everywhere and every moment. Thank you.

  3. Oh, YIPPEE! Has it really already been 40 days? That just doesn’t seem possible.
