An Ocean of Abundance


Lately I've been receiving a ton of coaching requests for people who want to work on attracting more money into their lives. Not surprising considering that money is typically one of people's biggest concerns! Lucky for me, I have a pretty good grasp on my money vibe and I'm able to show others how to attract it quickly and easily. (For more details about coaching with me, go here.)

One of my favorite ways for increasing the money flow in my life is doing the exercise below on a regular basis. This particular description comes from Louise Hay's newest book, Modern-Day Miracles, but I've actually spoken about this before ("Are You Open to Receiving?").

From Louise Hay:

Your prosperity consciousness is not dependent on money; your flow of money is dependent upon your prosperity consciousness. As you are able to conceive of more, more will come into your life.

"Visualize standing at the seashore, looking out at the vast ocean and knowing that it reflects the abundance that is available to you. Look down at your hands and see what sort of container you’re holding. Is it a teaspoon, a thimble with a hole in it, a paper cup, a glad, a tumbler, a pitcher, a bucket, a washtub—or perhaps you have a pipeline connected to this ocean of abundance? Look around you and notice that no matter how many people there are and no matter what kind of container they have, there is plenty for everyone. You cannot rob another, and they cannot rob you. And in no way can you drain the ocean dry. Your container is your consciousness, and it can always be exchanged for a larger container."

Do this exercise often to experience feelings of expansion and unlimited supply.

Now let me ask you:

How did you feel doing that exercise?

What sort of container did you see yourself holding?

Were you able to really feel the abundance pouring into your body and your life, or did you notice yourself trying to push it away and resist it?


I've been having great success using the pipeline image, but don't beat yourself up if you're not there yet. I tried a similar exercise a year ago, and didn't feel comfortable accepting that much abundance into my life. The more often you do this exercise, the more comfortable you'll get holding a larger container, which will lead to larger and larger amounts of money and abundance flowing into your life!

The truth is, there is already a constant flow of money and abundance in our world, which surrounds us at all times and is ready to be tapped into. However, WE are the ones who are preventing it from reaching us, by our constant preoccupation with not having enough and our focus on lack.

Remember, what we focus on is what we create!

Therefore, the more you focus on not having enough money, worrying about how you'll pay your bills at the end of the month, anticipating that you'll run out of funds, etc., the more you will continue to create that in your world.

Trust me, though: You can experience abundance at all times, no matter what the economy is doing, no matter what type of job you have, etc., by keeping your attention on HAVING abundance, rather than lacking it. This is easier said than done, but by spending time visualizing unlimited prosperity and really feeling like there is always enough to go around (like you did in the exercise above), you will begin to manifest that exact same scenario in your life!

You can also use this exercise with respect to love, if that's something you'd like to see more of in your reality. Rather than imagining an ocean of abundance, simply imagine an ocean of love that is overflowing, unending, and just pouring into your life. As long as you are open to accepting it, it will be yours!

For a really great resource on attracting more money into your life, I highly recommend Money Mojo Magic, by master law of attraction coach, Jeannette Maw. This is a super affordable resource that explains exactly how to change your energy in order to quickly create more wealth in your life. And it really works: I literally started making more money the exact same night I finished the ebook! Get more details here.

  3. Hi Mary,
    I found your blog through the Good Vibes blog - and so glad I did! I love and so totally resonate to all your wonderful tips. I'm a huge fan of Louise Hay's. I honestly don't think she gets enough credit for the huge wave of awareness she created that ultimately ushered in so much more such as the acceptance of LOA.
    Sincerely,
    Angela Artemis

  5. I am looking to bring more money in my life. When I first started reading the exercise, I pictured myself holding a large jar, but easily switched to a large bucket / washbasin. Can I stand in a larger container and just have it pour over me? I desire so much money; I won’t ever need to think about it again. I would change a great many things if money was not a concern. Well, I'm just getting started. So, the future is a blank canvas.

  12. Great post! I really do believe that the Law of Attraction works. As Paul Coelho quoted “When you want something, the entire universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” All you have to do is to set your goals straight, be persistent to achieve it, stay focused, and have a good dash of optimism.

  16. As per my above conversation that i have said that i feel very hungry while i do exercise no also i am feeling hungry what should i do.

  17. Yes, of course like everyone else I want to have more freedom from financial pressure and the freedom to do and accomplish that which makes my heart sing. It's somewhat unfortunate that since this requires money there are so many of us who don't have a clue how to be spiritual and prosperous at the same time, myself included. I'm still working on that one. I have recently begun to see that it's really not abundance that is the issue but engaging in only those interactions that bring prosperity, increase, to all participants as being the key.

  33. It is true that money cannot buy everything and the best things in life are for free, yet money is energy; a secondary reinforce that contributes towards success, prosperity and good health. Money on its own cannot satisfy basic needs since no one feeds on money when starving or shelters himself from the rain using money.
