Very few issues are as emotionally charged in our society as abortion. Some people view it as out-and-out murder while other people see it as their right to choose. Which ever side of the issue you are on, an abortion certainly stops a child from being born; it stops that child’s hope and dreams from ever being manifested.
My mom had three miscarriages before I was born. Three children spontaneously aborted before they were born. My mom grieved the loss of each of those children and was incredibly relieved when I was born with all ten fingers and all ten toes.
When I was meditating the other day, I began to think about dreams, miscarriages, abortions, and the economy. Strange combination you might think, but as I allowed my mind to meander, I had one of those ah ha moments. Let me explain.
I think of children as angels in little bodies, small adults with incredible hopes and dreams about the lives they are about to experience. For children, anything is possible until they are taught by the adults in their lives to believe in limitations.
To quote Pearl S. Buck, “The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible–and achieve it, generation after generation.”
It is sad to watch people live lives of quiet desperation when joyous abandon is possible. That was when I thought about abortion. Would you be willing to let go of your fondest dreams, your belief in anything being possible, if you thought of it as aborting your future happiness? I know, when I think of it that way, I am clearly not willing to kill my happiness or abort all of the gifts I was born with or deprive the world of my love.
No one, not one single individual was ever born with the destiny to be a failure or to be miserable.We all have gifts and talents, and when we align ourselves with our spirit, we can use those gifts to give birth to a life filled with freedom, happiness, and joy.
Okay, so how does the economy fit into all this? In one of my previous posts on angels and the economy, I talked about how the economy really only has the ability to affect us if we believe it does. When I graduated from college, there were no jobs. We were in the midst of a recession, so I began making stained glass window ornaments and selling them at a local farmers market. Eventually that grew into a full-time job, and my stained glass studio supported me and numerous employees for 13 years.
So, if you stop aborting your dreams, allow yourself to connect with the limitlessness of the universe, follow your inner guidance, and trust the process, you would have no fear about the economy and no doubt. Meditate, pray, and connect with the celestial realms. Share your love and your talents, and see what happens.
I get e-mails every day from people who are afraid of losing their homes or their jobs. I remind them that their abundance doesn’t come from their pay checks; it comes from their connection to their spirit. Listening to that guidance has taken me in some unusual directions and to places I never expected to go, but following it has always led me to happiness, freedom, and joy.
I have a podcast called Food for the Soul. In a few weeks, I will be posting a podcast that is all about connecting with that inner guidance. I’ll let you know when it is available.
With love and aloha,
