Yesterday I went to the mall and wanted to buy everything in sight. A swirl of conflicting thoughts came up, particularly the desire to buy some very lovely things, juxtaposed against the immediate chatter of my ego attempting to assert it’s belief in lack and deep-rooted poverty consciousness.
Abraham-Hicks teaches that there are only two vibrations when it comes to abundance: more than enough/always enough or not enough/never enough. In the past, I have left shopping situations feeling very constricted and down on myself as a result of negative self-talk about how I can’t afford this or that and as a result of focusing on the negative aspects of my current financial situation. I have been working on the belief in “always enough” however, this Christmas appears to be a little more financially tight for those close to me (myself included) so it was tempting to fall back into these old patterns of thought. I said a silent prayer that whatever material items were supposed to be mine would find their way to me, then I mentally leaned into the resulting sense of peace and went along my way.
I left the mall without buying anything and when I came home, a piece of Laguna Agate, a stone I haven’t worked with in a long time, caught my attention. I had the strong sense to hold onto it and to put it in my pocket. Immediately I felt very grounded, and secure. The remaining senseless chatter from my ego dissipated and it was such a pronounced shift I was compelled to look it up. I found that Laguna Agate and all red Agates are known to reduce greed and stop the burning desire for things we do not need.
Next time you go shopping and want to prevent impulse-buys or any of the negative feels that may come from the desire from material things, try carrying this stone with you or wearing it as jewelry. I’d love to hear if it makes a difference for you.
