Celebrate the wins of others

Celebrate the wins of others

Sharing is caring!

A friend recently shared with me that she used to pray to make more money as she seemed to be at a plateau in her career. She looked deeply at what might be blocking her from increasing her income. It didn’t take long to uncover a hidden belief, which was a negative opinion she had of others who made a lot more money than she did.

Specifically, the belief was a deeply held judgment she had about her father. He made a lot of money, but from her perspective, he was unhappy, bitter, unkind, and unbearable to be around; and she did not want to be like that.  When she realized that the two were not mutually exclusive, that belief lost its power and dissolved, her career took off, and the money poured in abundantly.

As her happiness expanded, she realized that she was still the kind, friendly, and generous person she knew herself to be.   This reinforced her faith and trust in God, herself and what she thought might be true, which is that we live in an abundant universe and it is God’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom. There’s plenty to give and plenty to receive.

Sometimes we get caught up in our limited thoughts and beliefs from the past which have been placed there by society or family, or which we have formed for ourselves on our journey as we move through the world.

Perhaps you simply have a propensity for jealousy which unbeknownst to you until now, blocks your good.  Rather than feeling bummed about how magnificent others have it, or wishing it was you instead of them, celebrate the blessings they’re receiving.

Notice where you are judging others and what it is you’re judging about them.  These judgments are keys to the kingdom of heaven within.

The reality is that there is plenty to go around.  When others are experiencing a happy, abundant, and joyful life, it is proof that it is possible.  When you begin to think and believe that you live in a universe of abundance which includes a wealth of love, joy, peace, harmony, wisdom, bliss, and money too, you begin to experience this finished kingdom through which you walk.

If we are judging the financial success or any other success of others, we are putting out a vibrational frequency to the Universe that we do not want that. The same occurs with feelings of jealousy and envy. By celebrating the wins of others, we are feeling great and totally in our joy. Our vibration is leveled up, which creates an opening for the Universe to pour in our good.  We are saying to the Universe, wow, look at all that good he or she is experiencing, that is so cool, there is much good that is possible for everyone in this magnificent life.

Today I celebrate the wins of others. Wow, you rock! Congratulations! You’re amazing!

And so it is.
