In our opinion, there is no abundance without gratitude. It is so important to change your perception and attitude and to shift your focus from what you don’t have to focus on everything you do have and this creates the greatest shift. It is actually incredible how much you realise you have when you decide to start to notice by shifting focus from what you don’t have to what you do have.

It would be easy to say, “but I don’t have anything to be grateful for or I have reason to be down, unhappy, have a mindset of lack because of x, y and z.”  However, Victor Frankl in Man’s Search for Meaning was in a Nazi concentration camp and was still able to think above his current situation, as was Nelson Mandela and Gandhi.  Proof that no matter what our external circumstances and choices available to us, we always have a choice of how we choose to feel or perceive our life.

A great way to log our gratitude is one, by a list of all the things to be grateful for and keep adding to it as you become more aware or as good things start happening as a result of your shift in focus.  The universe brings you more of what you focus on, therefore focus on negative and you will receive more negative, or focus on positive and receive more positive.

Another great way is by keeping a daily gratitude journal where you write 5 things that you were grateful for that day. An idea I got from Sarah Ban Breathnach’s book Simple Abundance. A great book with lots of wonderful creative ideas and again about gaining clarity on who we are and what we want from life and about how we choose to look at life and the difference from having a more positive perspective.

Another person who talks of their gratitude journal is Oprah Winfrey and this seems to be an integral part of her day. It is plain to see that she is living a clearly abundant life. In addition, she attributes her abundance and position to grace. From her humble, troubled beginnings to the hugely successful empire she has built she knows that something bigger than her was behind it all, although she  had to find her passion, set her intention and then work hard to achieve her dreams.

Another truly inspirational person who attributes their wealth to a mindset of gratitude and also to grace is Tony Robbins. He believes wholeheartedly appreciating what he has and where he came from and in giving back – not just for giving sake or for tax purposes, but because he came from hard times and wants to help others in hard times. This he has the pleasure of doing through his calling as a mentor and strategic interventionist as well as his various other successful ventures, but additionally he finds ways of helping others through his foundation.

Here is an inspirational quote from his foundation website that we’ve also heard him quote in interviews – “the secret to living is giving.”  Also, in his book Money – Master the Game, he tells of how he asked Sir John Templeton, the multi-billionaire, “what’s the secret to wealth?” to which he answered “Tony, you know it, and you know it well.  You teach it to everyone.  It’s gratitude.”

All of the people mentioned are great examples of the transformative powers of gratitude, grace and of how finding your passion and doing what you love takes you to the place where everything else takes care of itself! Finding your passion, setting your intention and then going about executing the steps necessary to live the life you dream of.

Blessings of abundance!

Welcome to our page where we share our journey to abundance and the affiliations along the way.

This journey is one we’ve been travelling for some time and is gaining momentum and as we grow and develop, there is always room for more growth and development and also with abundance, there is always room for more abundance to flow into ours and your life.  As we make the right kind of changes in our lives, abundance will flow freely.

The most recent part of this is our affiliation with Ipro (more on this in another blog).  Something that happened by chance, but not chance at the same time, like we were supposed to find it.  I’ll be completely honest, it wasn’t my cup of tea, it was something my husband found and after a lot of research, felt it was something he really believed in and therefore, so did I, because I believe in him.

I feel I need to be clear about my reasons for not being interested and they are to do with money.  I know I had a core belief that repelled money and an idea that I it was bad to have money.  That there are so many people in the world who go without, that it would be unfair for us to accumulate wealth.  However, I have since realised, thanks to Abraham via Esther Hicks in their book Getting into the Vortex (go and check them out at They say that as we take a slice of the pie, we don’t deprive anyone, it is filled back up.  This means that as we become more abundant, it provides us with the means to help others, something that is a deeply held value of both of ours.

Another piece of learning we have had recently thanks to Abraham via Esther Hicks, and also Orin via Sanaya Roman (  as well as John Assaraf (, is that abundance is a belief first and foremost.  That before the physical manifestation of money, you have to believe you are worthy of it, believe you can have it and feel abundant like you already have it.  To be honest, if you were able to make these shifts in perception, then even without the money, life would take on new meaning.

However, as well as the positive shift in our perception and attitude, we are already seeing results.  The creative ways that the universe is bringing abundance forth.  We’re not going to lie…we’re not yet millionaires, however we are getting and closer and closer to the millionaire mindset.  Therefore, if we never reach the six zero figure we will have already achieved the mind of a millionaire.  Having said that, we feel we will make it there.  We feel so charged and energised and constantly pinging with new ideas and inspiration that will take us to where we are supposed to be.

Doing what we are supposed to be doing is so important on the journey.  We have to listen within to the whispers of our soul and live in a way that is true to who we are and our purpose here on earth and everything else will follow.  We start to notice opportunities and ideas that lead the way and it becomes very exciting and makes it easy to see the abundance that lies ahead.

We feel that this is another crucial part, that it is more about believing we can have what all of us are destined to have – an abundant life filled with joy and laughter and love – and that for us is about our family and getting more time together to share the special time with our children while they are young and also having the means to do so.  As we previously mentioned this also involves us being able to give to others, and this is not just about money, but about our time, which is the most precious commodity we have in life, therefore, one of the greatest gifts we can give to another.

This takes us to the final point and that is that we are all connected and are supposed to help one another along our paths.  I read an excellent example of that today in a book about cancer of all things, called Foods to Fight Cancer.  It was something so simple about the very first single cells, which made the decision to cohabit and create the first multi-cellular organisms, going from individualistic way of being to working for the greater good, but to me it seemed like a microcosm of the macrocosm reflecting our journey through life.  As children, we start out self-centred and as we progress through life we begin to care more about our fellow human beings and begin to work for the greater good.  Or as Steven R. Covey  (  puts it in his fabulous book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, he says that we start out life completely dependent and then gradually gain independence and this is important for our development, but that once we have achieved autonomy and a sense of self, we then strive for interdependence and working together with others.

So this is about our journey to abundance, but about yours also, and everyone you then go on to connect with.  Far from my belief that for me to be abundant that someone else had to go without, the opposite is true and as we become more abundant and share the knowledge that we have learned from others, my means of creating abundance and anything else that spreads this outwards like a ripple  effect and helps us all to live the lives that we were born to live.  Not one of suffering and lack, but joy and plenitude.

We hope you will continue with us on our journey and together we can educate ourselves and others and make real and lasting change.

Blessings of abundance!
