One of the things I always encourage people to do when using the Design Your Home for Success process is to immediately use the process to feel more abundant and to increase financial abundance – oftentimes much faster than you might imagine.
It all starts with using a type of positive Anchor called an Object of Abundance Anchor. In this article I’ll share with you how this type of anchor works, plus 6 ways you can begin working with Object of Abundance Anchors to plant powerful seeds across your HomeSpace and watch your financial abundance grow.
IMPROVING YOUR FINANCES WITH OBJECT OF ABUNDANCE ANCHORS
What is an Object of Abundance Anchor? It can be any object with a higher value to you than other things in the room, representing your Finance and Lifestyle goals (which are outlined when you create your LifeVision using the Design Your Home for Success process.)
When you are furnishing or updating your HomeSpace, it’s fine to buy the pieces on sale or with a budget in mind, but, it’s crucial to mix in a few key pieces that represent a higher value to you.
I don’t mean something that costs ten times as much as everything else (although Object of Abundance Anchors often have more financial value). It’s really the story, the experience and the feeling associated with that item that creates the “value” of it.
6 WAYS YOU CAN CREATE AND USE OBJECT OF ABUNDANCE ANCHORS
Look at your living room, your bedroom and your home office, if you have one. Look at the objects in each space and check out their level of value. Identify any objects that trigger a story or experience of lack. For example, everyday items bought on a budget to fill a room offer a very low, uninspiring vibe to you and your guests.
Ask yourself what object in each room in your HomeSpace is aspirational in terms of representing a higher level of financial abundance and lifestyle for you. There may be an object with that sort of significance that you didn’t previously consider as an Object of Abundance Anchor.
If you can’t identify any item in your home that could be an Object of Abundance, consider acquiring some higher value objects.
Begin to see certain objects as indicators of what you expect your level of Finance/Lifestyle to be. You don’t have to blow the budget here, it’s your intention that you place on an Anchor that counts.
Consider utilizing something with an inspiring color, a beautiful light fixture or lamp as an Object of Abundance. Such objects can serve a dual purpose, such as offering a soft, flattering light while being aesthetically pleasing. Another example would be a beautiful cashmere throw that adds color, warmth and texture to your couch, achieving multiple objectives at once. Anchors can often fill multiple purposes using the 3-step Design Your Home for Success process.
Drop a well-placed hint with friends and family during the holidays or your birthday (or any other special occasion) that you would prefer to get one special thing that you love, rather than a variety of small presents. I know this may sound presumptuous, but heck, if you don’t ask you won’t receive. Wouldn’t you rather get something you treasure instead of a bunch of stuff you really don’t need or like but feel obliged to display and use?
In addition to helping you feel more abundant now, the above steps will help you align with a more financially abundant mindset. Over the years my Object of Abundance Anchors have become more valuable as my finances and lifestyle have improved, and now they are in every room of my HomeSpace.
See these as investments that remind you constantly of the financial path you’re on and the lifestyle you want to be experiencing. Whenever you connect to an Object of Abundance, you can imagine feeling total financial freedom and the reality that all the objects in your home are becoming Object of Abundance Anchors.
