In the past I’ve written about the ideas of putting yourself in the essence of what you want. For example, if you want to feel rich and successful, go to a high-class hotel even to just have a cup of tea in the lobby. This will put you in the essence of luxury without costing you a lot of money. You can go to a very expensive restaurant and have a glass of wine or mineral water at the bar or table. Again, it does not cost much but puts you in the surroundings of opulence.
It’s important to remember that you do not have to have abundance to feel abundant. The more you feel abundant and prosperous the more you are in the energy of attracting that which you desire.
Recently it occurred to me that many of us can take this a step further and enjoy the things that we already have. Things that represent what we want to attract into our lives. For example, how many of us use our “good dishes” when there’s no company?
Why not? Don’t we deserve to enjoy what we have too? This occurred to me recently as I was passing through our dinning room, a room we tend to use only for special occasions. In this lovely room, we have a big china closet full of beautiful glassware that, for the most part, just sits around and collects dust. It became obvious to me that one way to attract more luxury and fine things into my life is to use and appreciate those things we already have.
Remember, what you focus on expands. Therefore, by appreciating and being grateful for the luxury you already have, however much or little that may be, you’ll begin to attract more of the same. My wife Georgia and I have made a pact, to use our dinning room, good dishes and all, at least once a month. This is just for the two of us. I don’t care if we’re eating pizza, we’re eating it on the good dishes.
By using and valuing that which you already have, not only will you attract more but you will have had a better experience in the interim.
