Abundance means different things to different people. At a fundamental level, abundance is a mind-set before the principle manifests in the material plane. You can have immense wealth whilst anchored with a miserly mind-set, which defeats the principle of abundance. For having wealth doesn’t automatically equate to being abundant. I know many wealthy people who possess a miserly mindset, and live in constant state of fear, lack and distrust. This often has an adverse effect on their health and wellbeing. They often feel disconnected from love, and possess a deep sense of loneliness and yearning for more. Such individuals may even lack creative expression, libido and excitement for life. Conversely, I have met many perceived "poor" people on my travels to far away lands, whose lives are enriched by a sense of community, connection and devotion. these individuals possess a genuine sense of kindness and generosity that is anchored in love and charity. Such individuals are often willing to share their last bread with a stranger, and somehow their basic needs are always met.
Now, which one of these cases appears to be a true manifestation of abundance to you?
In essence, abundance in its truest form means liberation from fear and mental lack. If you are seeking peace of mind and liberation, you are really seeking to cultivate an abundant mindset that sets you free from anxiety, fear, guilt and a sense of powerlessness that plagues life.
An abundant mindset sets you free from the toxic residue of living in lack, and elevates you towards feeling in to the inner riches that already exists within you.
If you are seeking more from life, is it not time that you drive out of lack-city and head for the new junction known as abundant-city? Follow me if you will…
You can create the blue-print for abundance, and know that all your needs and desires will be taken care of on an energetic and physical level. All you need to do, is lay over some fundamental ground work, to ensure that you materialise the energetic blue print for abundance at a cellular level. Here are some of the key principles to consider as you head towards “abundant-city”…
Trust like a child All children have a naturally abundant mindset. They trust that all their needs will be met, and so it is. The innocence that children embody contains the essence of abundance. Tap in to this inner infinite innocence that resides in magic and wonder. The child-like mind truly believes in the power of the present moment, and sees and appreciates the wonders of life, and awes at the simplicity of life. A child’s mind is the most resourceful, creative and abundant mind-set that exists. The good news is that your inner child too has these abilities, all you have to do is access this potential through the power of intention and breath.
Set clear standards When you believe your world is abundant, your standard of living naturally improves, you set clearer boundaries that is to be respected by others, and you begin to see that your outer world is the reflection of your inner world. With this, you clean up the inner smog and begin to set clear standards in every domain of your life. The standard that we set for our self and our life, mirrors back to us through the lens of our relationship with others. If your outer life is convoluted, it is time to reflect inwards, and evaluate the standards you have set for yourself, and the standards by which you are living life from. Create a set of standards that is congruent with what you desire. You always have choices at your disposable, you must be willing to drop the resistance and become receptive to your inner voice.
Commitment The greatest source of abundance available to mankind is ideas, and the greatest source of destruction is fear and self-doubt. The ego projects fear to warn you for your safety. Your job is to utilise the rational conscious mind and erect the white flag. You are safe. Yes, you are definitely safe. Your idea is great, don’t doubt your potentials. The people of this world are full of great ideas, yet, they lack the courage to ground these ideas and manifest them in to greatness for the service of humanity. To achieve this, it requires commitment. Daily commitment. Showing up when you don’t feel like it. Pushing through crippling fear. Dusting the mental gremlins off daily, and pushing through every unimaginable boundary and block that exists. Without commitment to yourself, you cannot discover your truth. Without this commitment, you won’t get the clarity you need, and clarity is power. You have to be committed to your path, and to your vision. The more you show up, the more your powers are realised and heightened. The more you fine tune yourself, the greater version of yourself you become. The more you push through the fear, the further you fly. The more you create, the more you sow. The more you offer, the more you receive. This is the law of abundance. Commitment requires loyalty, be loyal to yourself first and foremost, and the universe shall become your loyal servant.
Connection and exchange The law of exchange is the premise of life. Exchanging what you have keeps the energy pulsating and circulating. Hoarding knowledge, money and possession creates stagnation and loss in an area of life. Loss is not always directly associated with money, it can be loss of health, loss of community, loss of creativity, or loss of love. The universe doesn’t discriminate, when the energy of lack is in motion, it can constrict any given area of your life.
It is within a heart felt exchange that we create more from life, more vision, more ideas, more connections, more money, more love and more value. We are always exchanging with others, even when we may not be consciously aware of this process.
Cultivating presence is the cornerstone for creating space for more to unfold. To attain more of that which you truly desire. Check in with your intention for every action you embark upon. Why do you do what you do? What is the basis of the intention behind your actions, words and thoughts? It is the intention behind the action that yields you the result. For it is the intention that carries the energetic blueprint. Know that life creates on an energetic plane before it manifests in the physical. This is law, there is no escaping it.

The first time I was drawn to the Tarot deck, I was 18 years old. I bought my first deck of cards from an old London book shop, and started to work with Tarot as a guiding compass for my life. There began a life long love affair with Tarot.
Unfortunately, there is much misconception shrouding Tarot, and over the years, I too was poorly influenced by some of the misleading and terrorising beliefs about Tarot, but through perseverance, and advancing my studies in the occult, I have come to really understand and appreciate the tremendous gift of healing wisdom that Tarot has to offer. Here is what I have come to personally understand about Tarot to be true;
Tarot is a spiritual tool: In the great scheme of things, we are all one unified field. There is nothing that is external to you, and the great spirit, god, divine, or whatever you wish to call this higher power, resides within your own essence. Tarot is simply a physical tool that manifests your connection with this higher power. When you establish a connection with Tarot, your essence evokes the higher power for purpose of gaining clarity regarding your inner world. Tarot, essentially helps you to determine how your inner landscape is influencing your outer reality and shaping your experiences.
Tarot does not predict your future: Contrary to popular belief, Tarot does not predict one’s future, nor was it ever designed to do so. The “fortune telling” aspect is often projected by the person who is reading (or mis-reading) the Tarot. What Tarot does, is reveal the energies governing the situations you are enquiring about. Even though Tarot offers an “outcome” glimpse, it shows the outcome based on the energetic imprint projected by your current beliefs and thought patterns. This principle is what makes Tarot an amazing healing tool that I have personally used for over 20 years to reveal subconscious blocks to situations in my own life and that of my clients.
Why Tarot may appear dark and scary to some: Some of the imagery offered by many different Tarot decks can appear frightening and displeasing to the general enquirer. The imagery is in fact rich in symbolic representations regarding energetic imprints that govern human thoughts, emotions, desires and inner riches. The full spectrum of human experience contains contrast as well as expansion. This diversity enables the lens of human perception to widen and express itself as awareness, compassion and service. The imagery depicted in Tarot, illustrates the human journey through the ebbs and flows of internal states of our being that we project toward situations in our life. Therefore, the enquirer is encouraged to contemplate any frightening notions that arise from the Tarot imagery, for he/she is rejecting that which resides internally within themselves. Fear, judgement and repulsion is a call to face that which we deny and reject from our own psyche. The potently rich imagery and symbolisms offered by the Tarot hurls an awakening for the psyche to accept the rejected and fragmented parts, thus making Tarot a powerful healing tool.
In summary, Tarot offers you a glimpse in to your energetic imprints projected on to different life domains. It is not designed to tell you your future, nor determine your destiny. For Tarot is merely a powerful gateway for disclosing the workings of your subconscious, and reveals the map of the psyche, and how your hidden energies are influencing and creating your life experiences.
We can use Tarot as a means of healing and transforming the adverse energies that may be deep at play. The adverse hidden energies often lead to procrastination, resistance, fear, displeasure, disempowerment, hopelessness, despair, pain and suffering. Tarot holds a powerful mirror to your soul, that enables the darkness and light of your essence to commune as one, in order for you to transform the old constructs that no longer serve your path in life. Through Tarot we learn, we explore, we share and we transform.
