The Abundance Acronym

The law of abundance states that there is plenty and prosperity in all things. The universe holds abundance in all energy forms and provides unlimited options for anything and everything we could want or need. Abundance is not simply about wealth or financial energy; it is a mindset that everything you need will be provided for you because the universe exists in abundance.

Your energetic vibration determines what you attract, and what you attract comes to you in abundance. Look around your life and observe your patterns and beliefs about love, success, money, creative expression, and personal fulfillment. There will be a common thread between all areas of life that will be evident through the law of abundance. If you are trusting in one area of your life, it will show up in all areas. If you are fearful in one area, it will also show up in all areas since it relates to the same root cause. The key determinant is the energetic vibration you hold around self-worth.

This is the work of 10 Calgary artists reflecting on what is abundant within our lives and expressing it through their unique lens.

A is for Appreciate & Allow
by Kym Chi

gratitude fills my soul
for the ever present
abundance in my life

connecting deep
with the earth
and collective consciousness

a bridge is created
crossing over
to the infinite

appreciating, allowing
of my place here

my heart opens wide
seeing light
bringing wholeness to being

light beaming from
out, to the world

seeing intrinsic value
in everything
creating universal abundance
of love…

B is for Babes
by Jaryd Adairski

The world is full of babes. Decades of babes have been photographed for all to admire. I bring to you the finest babes from 1440 -present. Enjoy!

ps – Do things backwards

U is for Unity & Understanding
by Katie Green

Through allowing unity in the natural order of growth and decay, and of life and death, we begin to accept and understand a deep synthesis of self and of our existence and energy in this world. This awareness opens our consciousness, our purpose, and our discovery. This journey is a time where we face our inner darkness in all its forms, and see that it guides us to our inner light where an unconditional source of abundance is awakened.

This unity reminds us that we are forever in this natural world, untouched as our spirits breathe. As equals to this earth, we free ourselves from the limits of knowing only our kind, tuning into the primal rhythms in which we all share the same roots. Releasing the superiority that holds our species, we are brought closer to self-truth and self-abundance. Sigh like the wind, open your chest and feel us attach as the connection of spirit reminds us that we are all born one.

N is for New, Next and Not Relevant
by Henry Raul Yu

D is for Diversity
by David “The Kid Belo” Brunning

A is for Action
by Jermaine Bucknor

This piece represents a call for action. All products are manufactured with a predetermined shelf life, nothing is “built to last”. If we continue to accept this existing state of affairs and continue to consume till we have “everything” but really nothing; and discard it after it out lives our attention span we will not be able to acquire true abundance. Through our path of self (the world as it exists within us) actualization we need to determine what our life is truly abundant in so we can share with those around us and connect on a level beyond our material possessions. I chose to use everyday discarded products as my medium to show that everything exists for a greater good and has a use. If we strive to find that use we can help to preserve our existence and and that of future generations to come. The world will always be (a)round, will we?

N is for Nonsensical
by Daniel J Kirk

A balance between dark and light.
The nonsensical thoughts are abundant and allow for anything.
Embrace and surrender.

C is for Craftsmanship
by Conrad Bishop

It is fascinating to witness the countless examples of ingenuity developed by human beings as we all seek to create homes and social environments for ourselves. The intrigue and satisfaction felt when skillfully problem solving your way to a functional solution whether it be a home, piece of music, garden, or even a debate is the result of having the ability and understanding to manipulate or craft ones medium, whatever it may be. our ability to make real our intentions is relatable to so much more than carpentry, and it is through this “hands on approach” to life if you will, that great fulfillment can be achieved.

E is for Everyday Evolutionaries
by Cody Thompson & Kai CB

looking around we see reflections of change
within one, within all, shifting forward the uni brain

subtle yet profound transformations in thought
give rise to actions that trancend the packaged and bought

from diet recalibration
to locking down a solid passion perpetuating station

those inspired to let be their heart’s true callin’
we salute you
for moment to moment you redefine what it means to be ballin’
