The Real Meaning of Abundance

I was reading a conversation the other day about Abundance, and someone said she had a hard time ‘manifesting abundance’. I was on my phone, as opposed to having my laptop, and I didn’t have the time to finic an answer, so I decided to stay out of it, but going over the comments it was obvious that nobody in that thread understood what abundance actually is: having so much of something that it fills you up completely, to the point of overflowing.

But here’s the thing: Abundance is not just about wealth, health, money, or love, it’s also sickness, poverty, and other crappy things. And that’s the part most people don’t realise: you can actually have an abundance – of crap!

People talk about Abundance as though it is only for the nice things, but Abundance means plentifulness; it means profusion. It means: a LOT of something.

Abundance is actually ours all the time.

Yep, your cup is always filled to overflowing. It’s just that, yeah, it can be filled to overflowing with crappy things. And then it’s called Lack.

But Lack is just another word that has been taken out of context. Lack is viewed as a deficiency – and mostly a deficiency of nice or useful things – even though bottomline it’s just an Absence: something that isn’t there.

So people equate ‘not having money’ to Lack, and they equate ‘having money’ to Abundance.

Does it matter? Oh, yes! It matters, because when you use a word incorrectly, it hinders your understanding of the actual concept that the word is meant to convey.

So let’s start with some rephrasing: let’s adjust what we call Abundance and what we call Lack. If someone is very poor, we typically call it Lack but they do actually have an Abundance: an Abundance of Poverty! And if someone’s very ill, we say they have a Lack of Good Health, but what they actually have, is an Abundance of Sickness.

Wordplay? No!

Big deal? Oh, yes! Because these concepts are at the base of Manifesting.

Manifesting, by the way, is yet another word that is so utterly misapplied it prevents people from even understanding the concept. A lot of people pretend it’s only Manifesting when it brings them something they actively want, but here’s the kicker: it’s also manifesting when you get something you don’t want. If it’s in your life, you manifested it.

Now, I can talk about this for hours, so if you have questions, shoot. But what I would have said to that girl is: Start by getting the concepts straight. You’ll find it totally changes your outlook on what manifesting actually is, and that will help you bring in what you actually want.

The Real Meaning of Abundance

Or: why I’m building a membership site

One of the things I’m working on behind the scenes is a membership site. Yes, for spiritually inclined HSP-Empaths who are also smart and deep thinkers. I’m not plugging the concept, just giving some background, 😁

My peeps aren’t really into memberships. You know that anti-social club where the members have yet to meet? Yeah, we’re all members there.

But here’s the reason why I’m building one anyway: I just had an amazing conversation with Chat (yes, the bot)- and if you know me at all, you’ll know Chat and I have a complicated relationship at best.

But here’s the thing: I played to its strengths. I asked it things it knows – and then I extrapolated from there and reached the insights I was looking for.

In this case, I was exploring the merit of the metaphorically used words ‘vibration’ and ‘frequency’, to see if they were properly or improperly rooted in the scientific use.

(My premise is that they are; Chat’s position echoes the apparent majority vote that it’s ‘purely metaphorical’.)

It was a good talk — until I asked it to put two and two together and extrapolate.

That was obviously ‘my bad’. The bot can’t extrapolate – which is the reason why the I in AI is so debatable.

But I was left with a curious sense of loss: for a moment there, that bot and I had a good thing going. And then i asked it to extrapolate, and it couldn’t.

If I’d been having that conversation with another human being, one aligned to the conversation, one curious about the outcome, then our sense of connection would have been strengthened, not abruptly severed.

I want to have a place where I can go and have deep and meaningful conversations about things; even, as in this case, about the etymology of things.

It helps deepen my understanding of concepts.

That simple.

Like, just now I asked Chat to confirm that I can use the word ‘etymology’ in this sense.

I’m going to put that in context, because it’s actually relevant to my point: etymology deals with the origin and historical development of words, tracing their roots and changes in form and meaning over time.

Chat said, “No, you want to use the word ‘semantics’.”

And that, I would argue, is the essence of semantics (where meanings may differ in various contexts). Because my point was that the meanings do not differ…

Chat missed that…

Sigh…

And it’s only 9am… 😆😆😆

And yes, that’s what my life looks like behind the scenes: exploring etymology with a bot. I’ve been at it for two hours. At 9am… 😆😆😆

On the bright side – shameless plug – it’s why I’m so good at what I do: explaining manifesting to my peeps. As Einstein said: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well.”

I go on until I can explain it simply, 😁
