Abundance is something created such as food.
New Year and I bless people with the three elements of prosperity during 2015: health, happiness and abundance. Health and happiness are easy to understand but abundance can confuse.
Abundance has nothing to do with money or material possessions. Money is a measure or a token of trade, rather than a tangible or concrete thing. We measure money either in pieces of paper of debt, a type of IOU note; base engraved metal or as figures on a computer database; all which can become instantly worthless in a financial crisis. Money really is debt, which is the opposite of prosperity.
Modern civilisation embraces the paradigm that qualities of prosperity such as happiness comes from the constant consumer purchase of material possessions. Human beings clutter their lives with possessions that brings about anxiety of their loss, protecting them from fire and theft, having to find room, often in paid for storage facilities of something of burden rather than happiness. The paradox is that there is little prosperity in material possessions.
My local museum is full of images of gods with symbols of abundance, one common example is a cornucopia overflowing with fruit. The ancient coins of the ancient Celtic rulers of Colchester shows an ear of barley, another symbol of abundance reflecting good soil fertility in the Colchester area. From these images abundance means something you create: harvests; children; poetry.
When I wish abundance to you my readers in 2015 I mean that what you create, work at and accomplish results in an abundant harvest. If you love growing fruit, may that fruit be plentiful. As a result of abundance, money will come to you, and so will the material possessions if that is your goal, but it is useful to have in mind that abundance is directly related to creativity, what you create is what you harvest as abundance.
