Do you sometimes ask yourself what is abundance and how you can manifest it in your life? What does abundance mean and how can we define it?
Abundance Definition and Meaning
Let’s define abundance and try to find its meaning.
The origin of the word comes from Latin – ‘abundantia’.
- Abundance means plenty, or a very large quantity of something.
- It is the innate tendency of nature and of life to manifest, grow, and become more.
- It is the tendency of the life force to produce more, and create more of everything. There are always new trees, new plants and more fruits.
- New things are being constantly invented; new cars are being produced; new houses are being built, and new jobs are created.
Scientists say that the Universe is always expanding and growing, and even new stars are being created. This is abundance on a cosmic level.
Abundance is everywhere in the Universe, and it can also appear in your personal life, if you let it. It appears as multitude of trees, plants, animals, and various forms of life, and also as an endless number of stars and Universes.
New stars are constantly created, new trees grow, new people are born, and new sources of energy are discovered.
The Universe seems to be constantly creating new things. You are part of this plenty. If you lack plenitude in life, it is because of some negative thoughts and attitude blocking it.
People often associate this term with money. Wealth, and having a lot of money are considered symbols of it. However, abundance manifests in many other ways, not only as plenty of money and plenty of possessions.
Abundance definition according to Merriam Webster dictionary is, “An ample quantity.”
Abundance definition according Cambridge dictionary is, “The situation in which there is more than enough of something.”
Macmillan dictionary says about it: “A very large quantity of something.”
What Is Abundance, and How Does It Manifest
What does being abundant mean? In what areas of life does it manifest?
This word means many things, and here are a few of them.
- There is abundance in love.
- There is abundance of friendships.
- There are great number of opportunities.
- There is plenty of fun.
- There is abundance of food.
- It is possible to have plenty of good deeds.

- There is plethora of trees, grass or water.
- You can create for yourself abundance of time to do what you want.
- You can also have abundance of spirituality in your life.
- There is abundance of everything on this planet. You may not have access to this abundance, because you alienate yourself from it and prevent it from manifesting in your life.
This word also stands for plenitude, prosperity, bounty, handsomely, lavish and profuse. It means fullness plenty.
To attract abundance into your life, you need to feel abundant. You have to develop an “abundance consciousness”.
“Abundance consciousness” means, becoming aware of the existence of plenty of everything, of feeling it in your life, and of connecting with it, even if it doesn’t seem to be a part of your life at this moment.
This kind of consciousness means, feeling and believing that you are a part of it and it is part of your life.
This kind of consciousness-awareness opens your mind to see it around you, and to recognize opportunities. “Abundance consciousness” breaks through the limiting beliefs of your mind and opens your mind to wider opportunities and a wider point of view.
If you feel that you are not part of the abundance of the Universe, it is because you don’t let yourself think in unlimited ways. You limit your thoughts to the things that exist in your life right now, and not expanding your vision and horizons to greater opportunities.
There is abundance in the Universe, and everyone is part of it, no matter where he or she lives, and irrespective of one’s situation and circumstances. To participate in this wealth and richness, you need to open your mind to it, feel it, and expect it.
One of the ways to open your mind to prosperity, richness and plenty, and to attract them into your life is through the power of visualization.
What you repeatedly imagine in your mind you ultimately achieve.
Another way that can help you manifest abundance in your life is through the repetitions of affirmations. These positive statements can open the gate to prosperity.
Studying and following these ways, will attract new opportunities and the things you want into your life.
“The world is full of abundance and opportunity, but far too many people come to the fountain of life with a sieve instead of a tank car, a teaspoon instead of a steam shovel. They expect little and as a result they get little.”
– Ben Sweetland
“Prosperity is not just having things. It is the consciousness that attracts the things. Prosperity is a way of living and thinking, and not just having money or things. Poverty is a way of living and thinking, and not just a lack of money or things.”
– Eric Butterworth
“True prosperity is the result of well-placed confidence in ourselves and our fellow man.”
– Benjamin Burt
“If you want greater prosperity in your life, start forming a vacuum to receive it.”
– Catherine Ponder
“There are many roads to prosperity, but one must be taken. Inaction leads nowhere.”
– Robert Zoellick
“Life is a field of unlimited possibilities.”
“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough.”
