My friend Rev. Lyn Williams sends out a reminder every month on FB to Write Your Abundance Check.
I think many of us could use this, so I’d like to share it with you. It’s a great way of putting your hopes, faith, dreams or desire for abundance into physical action.
I love Rev. Lyn’s ritual, but I did change it a little to implement some Pagan specific perspectives. If you need some abundance in your life, give it a try. You’ll find the full step-by-step ritual here: Sunday Homily: Writing Your Abundance Check.
You can visit Rev. Lyn’s website and learn more about her at The Woman Exec. And follow her on Facebook where she shares some wonderful insight and suggestions to make positive changes in your life.

We spend so much time looking outside ourselves to find happiness, that we forget to look within our own selves, in our actions and our practices. But the Dalai Lama has a cheaper way of finding happiness.
