How Rich Are You Really?

3 Thing You Need To Know About Abundance

What if we knew that true abundance is connected with the physical body as well as your spiritual connection and that it is there for all of us. Would we then live differently?

Without our health and body, life is no fun. Pain is no fun. Suffering is all-consuming.  It is suffocating our creative force. Health is true wealth, believe me. Now, after recreating and re-claiming my health, I feel rich, from my core. From the inside out. A different kind of riches. The kind that grows from serving and spreading the word. It has become my passion and mission, my true purpose.

“Truth is truth, and there is nothing that an empowered mind and being cannot do. One step at the time, as I did – anyone can.”

–Hilde Larsen

The thing is, when we cut through all the crap, all the lies, and false beliefs, this is where we end up. In front of the mirror. Staring at ourselves, up-close. What are we doing that is hindering this amazing true health-abundance to come alive? How are we not valuing our most precious asset? Why are we not even acknowledging that it is exactly that?

Ignorance and disconnection. Take a closer look in that mirror. What do you see? Are you taking care of the most precious and most valuable asset that you have? Are you honoring it as your number one investment? I want to challenge all of us to look at health as our number one asset. Our absolute most important investment.

Through my coaching, I see wealthy people who are miserable, and poor people who are happier, but what I never see is sickness and happy together. Not on a passionate level. 

There are three things you need to know about true abundance:

  1. Your body is your gold:

How much would you invest in your body if you knew the ROI (Return On Investment) was 1000% percent? I bet you would throw in all that you have. I bet you would sell out all your other investments to focus on the sure thing. Most of us would, yet we don’t. The most challenging aspect of the return in form of health is the fact that most people don’t even make the investment. Why? They don’t see the value until it is close to shut-down time for the whole business. Even then, depending on the level of awareness and connection to the true self, seeing health as the number one pool of wealth can be hard.

By ignoring our temple, we are ignoring life. We came here in a physical body, and we leave when it is no longer functioning when we are no longer breathing through it. Every physical experience we have on earth is through this body. Suffering and poverty are contraction, abundance and riches are expansion.

I was almost dead before I realized, not that I would simply have no life without my body, but that it was up to me to take care of it. It was easy to notice that life was no fun when the pain was overwhelming my every experience, but it took time before I could see how blessed I still was.

I had been given the opportunity to live in abundance. It was handed to me through birth. I had been given a choice, a power, and ability to choose wealth. I was not a victim, I was capable. I was brainwashed, numbed down and ignorant, but always able, always blessed, always abundant. My life was my wealth. As long as I was breathing, there was something to invest in, and I invested. I went all in and received everything in return. Not in form of money or assets, but in form of truth and love.

  1. It was never about the money:

The cliché; Money cannot buy happiness, isn`t far from the truth. Money can certainly bring us closer to our goals and provide the most necessary necessities for comfort. It can also increase our overall satisfaction, but in itself, it can never buy us happiness. Therefore it cannot buy us true wealth, or make us wealthy and abundant in the way that our heart seeks.

“Not what we have but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance.” ~Epicurus

We chase the money-trap as if it will buy us feelings and emotions. We keep chasing pride and status as if it will ever define who we are, or our worth in any way shape or form. To assume that money will make us feel more accomplished, happy, free or respected, is a dead end in the pursuit of an abundant life. Happiness doesn`t require more.

Gathering and saving up for a rainy day might end up being a trap, robbing you of the now moment, and the abundance that is already here. Yes, we should strive for our goals, and yes money is great, convenient and all that. If you recognize everything that is already here, what you work towards will seem like an even larger accomplishment and joy.

Once you follow your passion and honor your abundant life, money will always flow towards you. It`s not the abundance in itself, only a byproduct of your creations.

  1. Knowing is growing:

Our lives represent a full circle of actions and reactions. A full and complete circle of living, giving and receiving. Be it while sleepwalking like zombie`s, or as awakened brave humans, we still create what we live. Our subconscious and conscious mind travels with us on this journey of joy and heartaches.

We experience ups and downs, highs and lows. Nothing is constant. Duality is a part of our reality. It is what makes us learn and grow. It is what makes us push our limits. We seek abundance and everything that comes with it, as it is our natural state. We are abundant beings. Blessed beyond belief.

In a world that seems to require a tough and strong constitution, we eagerly look for the crutch and the validation that life is hard. That abundance is something for the few and lucky ones. We tend to take ourselves out of the race, from looking at those who seem unreachable. Believing that wealth comes with a dollar sign.

Surely one that has made millions of dollars, doing what he or she loves, spreading love and joy, is by definition a success. By him or her own means, and by the means of the eyes of others. They are the inspiration and the passionate people that move the energy forward. Those are the souls that are way-showers for many.  

On the other hand, the level of success is never measured by the number in a bank account, but by the size of the smile, the inner happiness, the compassion and the true health and joy.

When you recognize the true abundance in your life, you will end up giving away more. Authentic abundance requires balance. Holding on to anything is not the energy of allowing more to come our way, be it physical mental emotional or financial. Greed is a sign of disconnect and fear. Step out of it.True abundance is being able to recognize your riches regardless of your financial wealth.

❇️ True abundance is loving yourself, with all your strengths and weaknesses.
❇️ True wealth is true health.
❇️ True abundance is doing what you are passionate about.
❇️ True abundance is being able to eat fresh living organic food.
❇️ True wealth is loving and being loved.
❇️ True wealth is feeling free and peaceful.

  1. A truly inspirational post here, Hilde; Thank You! I see a great deal of congruity in our thoughts. One of the biggest challenges for our society lies in recognizing the difference between being happy and being contented. Unfortunately, we tend to lean towards the material in preference to the spiritual and that is where our mental faculties undergo a tremendous change. It is about time we make a concerted effort in drawing a line and set our priorities right, first thing!

    Can’t wait to read more of such inspirational posts!

    • Thank you Bharat. That really means alot. We truly need to align ourselves with our passion and purpose and build wealth from the heart.
