I’m watching The Bachelor as I write this. Somehow or another, I’ve managed to get Charlie to sit and watch with me. We both find ourselves laughing hysterically at the antics and the competitiveness of all the girls vying for the bachelor’s affections. The sad thing, however, is that there is an underlying tone of lack, fear, and desperation.
I want to focus on lack in this blog, because I feel it’s why so many people are unhappy. If you feel you’re not good enough, not pretty enough, not worthy of the things you want, you are in lack.
Where does lack come from? It comes from the false beliefs you’re holding onto. These beliefs tell you that there is something wrong with you. How feeling wrong shows up, depends on the person. For instance, one of the contestants is Emily. She is a sweet, gorgeous single mom of a five-year-old. She doesn’t want to tell the bachelor the truth about her life, for fear that he will judge her for having a kid. The lack she feels inside almost causes her to completely shut him out.
Then there’s Michelle. She’s considered the “evil one” among the contestants. She interrupts the other girls when having “dates” with the bachelor. She is controlling, angry, and constantly badmouths her fellow competitors.
Who would have ever thought that a reality dating show could be a great opportunity to study human nature? But it is. Every one of these girls is expressing lack in one way or another. It’s what we do as humans. If we’re in fear, we are in lack.
I know for me, lack expresses itself with the need to control and having angry outbursts. Thankfully, I don’t experience this much in my life anymore because I have tools to use when feeling these kinds of negative emotions.
So how does lack express itself in your life? Do you gossip about other women? Do you resent your spouse? Do you feel “less” than your friends? Do you try to do everything “right”? Or do you struggle with money? These are just a few examples of lack. There are too many ways to share how it expresses itself here. What I can tell you is that if you are feeling anything but abundant in your life, you are in lack.
You know you’re sitting in abundance when you feel “enough.” You feel as if there is no need for competition. You know that the universe supplies all of your needs. And you are open to receive, knowing that you are not alone and never have been
So, are you in lack or are you in abundance? If you’re in lack, you have the power to change your attitude. And when you change your attitude, you change your life.
I invite you to change your life NOW. Lack is going to stick around as long as you allow it. But you can change it right now by stepping onto the path of The Enlightened Mom.
