Riches Redefined

Real AbundanceI love beautiful things. Beautiful homes, shoes, cars – all of it. And I want these things in my life, but beauty and riches only take us so far. All we have to do is look around to see that there are plenty of people with lots of money who are deeply unfulfilled.

The other day as I was thinking how nice it would be to have a bigger house, it occurred to me that, while it would be fun, the house is just a symbol. What I was really craving is more life, more energy – more good/God. Life is the real source of riches. When we are full of life, everything else is just icing. Yet, when we have everything, but no life, nothing seems like enough.

Once I had this revelation, I was able to focus on bringing more “real riches” into my life. This involved eating a little less, exercising a little more, daily meditation and doing creative work.

Eating light and exercising raises our vibration so that we can feel and perceive the good/God within us. Meditating invites energy into our bodies and minds while making it easier to hear intuitive guidance.

Creative work – my favorite of the four life-enhancing behaviors – increases the velocity of life moving through us and helps us feel passionate.

So next time you find yourself longing for something new and different, ask yourself what you really want – you may find that what you’re really craving is more of you.

  5. Dear Kimberly,
    I’m so grateful I hiked Pinnacle Peak today and discovered your Heal yourself, heal the world piece.
    This is truly a beautiful reflection. The experience we call peace is the physical/emotional perception of being in God’s presence, feeling at One with The Source of our Being. In peace & gratitude, Barry
