I’ve been thinking a lot lately about abundance.  Being an entrepreneur you spend so much time alone.  I witness a lot of people, places, and things.  It’s an interesting way to view the world, you see things differently, because you are observing.  I actually like being the witness.

Witnessing abundance in the  world is a choice.  This is a powerful statement, as it’s taken me a long time to realize this.  There is always more in life.  I’m reminded of this when someone close to me loses a job.  Again, being “invested” in something, we often forget there is MORE… Let that sink in for a minute, there is M O R E!   I’m telling you every time I see someone regroup after a job loss, I am astonished by how life puts them back on the path.  It’s not always in the same way or with the same focus, but the turn of events is fantastic to witness.

Just to be clear, the MORE I’m describing is ENERGY, not things.  Think about the word abundance… how do you feel when you are seeing it in your mind?  What does it feel like to speak it aloud?  Now apply that word to a person, feeling, or situation… It’s a wonderful exercise.  I feel relaxed when I think of abundance.  I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.  That giant worry line I have on my forehead is softened a bit.  It seems obvious, that with abundance, we can relax, because there is MORE in store for us.  What if we invested time in witnessing abundance?  What if we chose abundance in our own lives?  How would it feel to always know there is MORE?  Add abundance to your daily meditation.  Let me know how it goes.  I see MORE for us both!

Do you know what it means to be a witness?  In the court room, the witness is called to recount the events in question as he or she remembers them.  The credibility of the witness can sometimes make or break a case.  Let’s just say the witness is vital in the journey of justice.

When I think of a witness, I think of the men and women who travel with you on your path in life.  Imagine you are driving along a large freeway, with many lanes.  As you drive along, someone will be behind you, beside you, or in front of you most of the time.  They may be in sync with you for quite a while and then suddenly disappear in the horizon.  They might just as easily appear out of nowhere.  These are no different from the witnesses you have in your life.  They are special because they acknowledge and share your journey… all of it, good, bad, and indifferent.

As you look back at the chapters of your life, identify your witnesses.  Identify those people who really made a difference or lightened your load in some way.  Take a minute to mentally send them gratitude for all they acknowledged or even better, send them a note if you are still in contact.  You can also identify your presence in someone else’s life as a witness.  If you are the witness, you can send the same gratitude for being present in their journey.  Remember, we are all share the same road, just in different stages.  ♥
