Day 4 is all about The Empress and abundance.
When we think about abundance we think in terms of riches, a kings ransom, millions of pounds/dollars. But that isn’t really what the Empress is all about. The Empress is whispering to us that we do have abundance in our lives. So we aren’t mega rich in monetary terms, but that’s OK – yeah, I know, I am always saying money is a huge help in life, especially when you have very little like I do – it’s OK because when you examine your life a lot more closely you begin to see just how abundant it is.
My life is relatively poor in terms of finances. I live a hand to mouth existence and that can be very worrying at times. There is never any spare money for trips around the world, or luxuries items etc. anything I have that can be considered a luxury I have either received as a gift at Xmas or my birthday, or it has come my way by a friend or relative who is getting rid of it. That doesn’t mean to say I am not grateful, both for the gifts and for the money I do receive, because I am very grateful. Once I started to look beyond money I began to realise that my life is incredibly rich in other areas. I have a wealth of knowledge about how to deal with emergencies; how to deal with life when you suddenly are faced with so much stress it threatens to engulf you. I have a wealth of experience when it comes to just about every aspect of life and for me that is something money just can’t buy.
This leads me to look at all I have achieved in my life, all I have accomplished, overcome, it all adds up to some pretty amazing stuff. I have a wonderful family that me and my husband created. I have a life, that may be lacking in financial riches but in all of the areas that matter no price could ever be put on that.
When the Empress is showing me all I have in abundance, I see a life that is overflowing with riches, people and experiences and accomplishments that all of the riches in the world could never buy. That to me is true abundance.
