Here are 3 simple shifts you can make to move from SCARCITY to ABUNDANCE. 1. Make room. By holding on to too much stuff, we are sending the silent signal to the universe that we are not ready to receive more goodness. “Stuff” can be anything: the clothes you don’t wear at the back of your closet, the piles of papers on your counter, the broken, inkless pens in your junk drawer.
