Divine abundance expresses infinitely through your own Divine Presence. When you identify with your Divine Presence, you open the floodgates, and Divine abundance flows naturally, easily, and effortlessly through you, materializing all good in your life and affairs.
I pictured myself in front of a roomful of people, explaining this Guiding Thought to them. They were the subject of the Guiding Thought, the “you” in it. I was repeating the lines as I was explaining it to everyone; here is what I remember saying:
Divine abundance expresses infinitely through your own Divine Presence – The opening sentence does three things at the same time. First, it confirms the infinite expression of Divine abundance (Divine abundance expresses infinitely). “There is always enough”, enough for all, an endless supply that is always expressing itself. The words “there is always enough” are also a powerful affirmation, a positive thought that reinforces an experience of abundance. Second, it tells us that this abundance comes through our Divine Presence. The Divine Presence is the conduit through which Divine Abundance flows. Third, it presupposes your own Divine Presence. It does not say, “If you have a Divine Presence, that is what carries abundance.” No. It says definitively “your own Divine Presence”. This is very powerful to the consciousness: it is affirming the Truth of your Self without giving you any opportunity to dispute it, stating it as a given.
When you identify with your Divine Presence, you open the floodgates– This is a statement telling you how to activate the Divine abundance. Divine abundance is there, always flowing, always available, always ready to bring all good into your life and affairs…but you must first identify with your Divine Presence. If Divine Presence is the conduit, then how much you recognize this as your identity is how big the opening is. Picture a pipe. This pipe represents a conduit. It transports something from one place to another. A small pipe carries small amounts; a large pipe carries large amounts. If the pipe is clogged, even if it’s a large pipe, less will come through. The size of the pipe is like the awareness of your own Divine Presence, your own consciousness of your Self as Divine Love. These consciousness Journeys are geared toward increasing your pipe-size. Then, they also address how much gunk there is lining your pipe, how deep are your beliefs in limitation or scarcity, transforming them toward trusting your Supply to provide for you. When you have a large, clean pipe, that is, awareness and understanding of your Divine Presence, with lots of thoughts of love, trust, and prosperity, this is like opening the floodgates. And since Divine abundance expresses itself infinitely, you can always continue to increase your pipe-size, and continue to keep it clean, or clear out more of the gunk that prevents the flow!
With all of that, the final sentence makes perfect sense, “Divine abundance flows naturally, easily, and effortlessly through you, materializing all good in your life and affairs.” You are your own Divine Presence, through which Divine abundance flows. Your own Divine Presence is the Truth of you, the Reality of you, the most natural thing in the world and beyond. So, it makes perfect sense that Divine abundance flows naturally, easily, and effortlessly through you. Your only responsibility is to be aware of your Self as the conduit, keep the gunk out of your thoughts, continue to give yourself thoughts about the Truth of your Being, and allow all the good to come through.
