Three Common Blind Spots to Abundance

Creativity is linked to Abundance.  In fact, a huge part of your soul purpose is to create and manifest.  You are here to experience yourself as a gifted divine soul.  Knowing your soul gifts and putting them to use is the key to your abundance along with attracting and manifesting anything you want.

Since I was in my teens I’ve wanted to be more empowered in my creativity and to me that means empowered abundance, empowered self-expression, and also having empowered boundaries so I could feel good in my skin and free to make the choices that truly work best for my life.

Many of us have this desire, but it’s not something we’re necessarily encouraged or taught to do when we are children.  It’s actually much more common for most folks to be living out of alignment with their divine soul gifts, dialing down their sparkle, fitting in… and living lives so full of obligation that they feel like they have few or no choices.

The truth is, if we were living in alignment with our soul gifts, we’d be manifesting brilliantly and bringing lots of empowered and joyful experiences into our lives.

For years I read everything I could get my hands on about aligning with abundance and manifesting with ease… but there were 3 major blindspots that kept me from fully experiencing my creative power.  I’ve noticed that these 3 blindspots are pretty common and often block our ability to experience the kind of abundance we truly want.

BLINDSPOT # 1:  Not Knowing Your Soul Gifts:  In order to be empowered creatively we have to know and own our soul gifts because what we have in abundance is the key to our abundance.  It’s really hard to shine brightly and bring your special genius into the world, if you don’t know what it is.  However, it’s actually very common for us to overlook and take for granted the very talents and gifts that are our primary magic.

Also, if we don’t know or understand our gifts and personal truth within, we tend to look for it outside of ourselves.  We make other people responsible for determining our value and we do a lot of things out of obligation.  It may not be  something we do consciously but it sneaks in all over the place.  It’s a disempowered way to live and an abundance roadblock.

BLINDSPOT #2  Vague or Misaligned Intentions:  In order to create anything, we have to have a clear intention.  It’s kind of like putting the address of your destination into your GPS.  The problem here shows up in 2 ways:  Either we don’t put an address in and drive around wondering why the GPS doesn’t tell us where to go OR we put in an address to a place that isn’t where we truly want to go.

Sometimes we fail to understand how powerful we are, and we wait for the Universe to deliver an answer or show us where we need to go.  The truth is, the Universe is responsive and we have to take the first step and decide what we want.

And if we want abundance… we need to choose things that line up with our soul gifts.  Sometimes we have soul gift envy ~ where we see so clearly how someone else is talented and we admire it.  We may think…”I want to do THAT.”  We can even give it a try, but if it’s not aligned with our gifts it just won’t deliver the same fulfillment and flow.

BLINDSPOT #3:  No Action:  Empowered creativity requires action.  We are human beings living in the 3rd Dimension.  That means we have bodies, we require food, shelter and clothing.  We are subject to time and the vibration rate of this plane of existence is a lot slower than say… our mental plane.

It’s quite easy to create on the mental plane.  It’s pretty much instantaneous.   All you have to do is imagine something and poof! there it is right in your mind’s eye.  This is actually great in terms of manifesting because we can run a lot of possibilities in our minds.  We can create quick sketches and rough drafts of our manifestations… and that is important to the process.  This helps us out a lot when we’re setting intentions.

But these things will remain just that:  possibilities….. until we take some kind of action to bring them into a tangible, 3rd dimensional state.  Taking action always requires effort, but it doesn’t have to be miserable or difficult effort.  When we’re lining up our actions with our soul gifts our efforts can be extremely fulfilling, enjoyable and they lead to prosperity.

Whatever you’re trying to create and manifest whether it’s more money in your bank account, more time, a relationship, or more artistic expression… your soul gifts are the key to your abundance.  Check in with yourself and ask:  do I know what my gifts are?  Am I setting soul-aligned intentions? What actions do I need to take?

Here’s to your beautiful, empowered creativity!
