Abundance means plenty—a flowing of love, vitality, wealth, joy, prosperity, success and more. GRACE is an acronym representing five practices that can magnify abundance in all areas of life, including finances.

G = Gratitude

There is tremendous power in being grateful, because what we focus on expands. Gratitude opens our heart to receive and give blessings. This puts us in a space to have more things to be grateful for.

Practicing gratitude can be as simple as saying, “I am grateful for…” or “I am thankful for…” If we find ourselves in a negative state, practice gratitude even for as brief a period as 60 seconds. It will positively shift our emotion, thereby allowing us to be open to abundance.

R = Receiving

To graciously receive can be as simple as accepting a compliment. Another way to receive is by requesting our heart’s desire.

There is nothing wrong with wanting more. The truth is that we can have more—as much as we are willing to receive.

A = Alignment

The key way to get into alignment for more abundance is to know our purpose, follow our passion and work on releasing internal fears and doubts.

When we are in alignment, everything flows. There is ease and doors open for us. People, money and resources will show up on our path to help us achieve our goals. Therefore, we must always be awake to our goodness and take inspired actions to manifest our desires into reality.

C = Commitment

Commit to gifting ourselves with an abundant mindset because our mindset is critical to our success. One way to quickly shift our mindset to the positive is to concentrate on our desire and ask ourselves, “What do I have to believe for this to be true?”  

Our mind will creatively generate many possibilities that can get us excited, which then shifts how we think and feel to what is positive. As we do this, we will also create greater confidence in the knowledge that the universe is always working in our favor.

E = Expression

Express our passion by first doing what we love. Then find a way to use our passion, purpose and life to serve others.When we do this, our world, our financial abundance and our joy will expand exponentially.
