Today’s Miracle Moment is about moving from scarcity to abundance.
You’re probably familiar with the ideas of scarcity and abundance but what do they both really mean? And how do these mindsets really affect us?
In a book called Scarcity, The New Science of Having Less and How It Defines Our Lives, the authors Sendhil Mullainathan and Eldar Shafir share how scarcity brings our focus toward unfulfilled needs. If we don’t feel we have enough of something, our minds become absorbed with focusing on that lack. This affects our mental “bandwidth” and weakens our ability to pay attention, make good decisions, stick with our plans, or be forward thinking. So when our minds are absorbed in scarcity thinking, we’re limited in our ability to create new inspired ideas, pay attention to synchronicities, or have the energy to take steps in the direction of our dreams.
We also know that what we focus on expands. If we’re focusing intently on not having enough of what we need, we’ll continue creating that experience in our lives of “not having enough.”
The true state of the universe is abundance.
There’s more than enough to go around and the universe wants to shower its infinite abundance on each of us. If we’re not experiencing that, we’re blocking the flow in some way with our scarcity thinking. So, how do we make this shift from scarcity to abundance?
It starts within us.
Everything that we experience is based upon the amount of circuitry that we have in our system to perceive the abundance of life.
If we can’t perceive life as abundant and miraculous, it’s because we don’t have the circuitry to do so. The good news is — you can start building the circuitry for abundance right now with this exercise:
Take a deep breath into your belly. When you breathe into your belly, you’re automatically activating the nervous system to move out of scarcity and fight or flight mode and to perceive abundance. Inhale into your belly and the upper lobes of your lungs. Then, exhale out in every direction around you. Imagine that your conscious awareness is reaching out in every direction and pulling in the abundance of the Divine and of infinite possibilities into your belly. Inhale the idea of “There’s more than enough” and imagine that energy being bigger than your physical body.
Then, exhale out in every direction. As you exhale out in every direction, you’re carving a pathway for your ability to flow in abundance.
Keep inhaling the abundance around you from every direction. Imagine yourself breathing in all of the resources that you need and all of the infinite capacity that is needed to activate your dreams and desires. Keep breathing into your belly and your upper lobes, and exhale out in every direction as if you’re filling the space around you with the vibration of abundance.
Now, exhale down into the earth and feel the Earth receiving you right now. As you breathe up into your belly and exhale back into the earth, feel her support and grounding. Imagine that you’re breathing in the feeling of fulfillment and of abundance realized in your life.
This week, try out this breathing exercise before making an important decision or taking an important step forward.
When the feeling of abundance in your body matches the intention in your mind, abundance flows naturally in your life.
We’d love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and share some of the ways that you are abundant right now.

Hi Karine! This is amazing and heart explodes everytime we hear these thoughts from people. We see you! 💖💝
I am abundant for the many blessings I receive from the Lord. I have a wonderful life and I am facing health issues. I know I will be blessed I just know it!
Thank you so very much for explaining this. I absolutely love the breath work. Feeling so much better.
Many thanks for these impulses, I tend to be melancholic …. and with you both and your words I experiment “a return to love” in the vast meaning of the word.
MANY THANKS AGAIN,
Nice beginning! So many breath techniques are powerful healing and energizing techniques.
I like to incorporate gratitude into breathwork because simplicity is my goal, and gratitude is the basis for positive attractions.
Dear Marci, I was first introduced to you at the beginning of this year in an online free seminar. The value you, and later, Dr. Sue have offered is immeasurable. Your teachings show up always at the right moment. I look forward to thanking you further some day soon. With gratitude and abundant joy, Robi
I am happy to be receiving your emails Sue and Marci,
The glow and laughter speaks of healing, by just looking at you two.
At this moment i need a healing on my sudden pain in the knee developed on my Mediterannean vacation a month ago. Im sure with Grace and Love of the Lord it will diminish soon.
Im happy to receive health abundance.
I am grateful for this reminder and for the feeling of fullness and light in my body and the overflowing goodness of my life. Thank you! More circuits ever building.
From scarcity to abundance, perfect topic! My desire is to focus on abundance (true state of the universe) and create from there. Love that I can use my breath to activate my nervous system and wake me up to the real, abundant me! Energy, vibration, abundance, mother earth ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for this reminder that abundance is my birthright and it comes from within me! Thank you 💖✨
This delightful blessing is now my morning ritual! It awakens all my senses and I can feel a even deeper connection with the cosmos! Love this!

Thank you for your wisdom! Listei to you made me feel worthy of abundente!
Abundance does not come to you… Abundance comes through you…
Hi Marci and Dr. Sue. This miracle moment was an AHA moment for me. Particularly the piece about activating the belly breath before stepping forward into something. This is a tool that I can use to change my pattern of stepping forward, then realizing partway in that maybe I dont need this, belong here, or want this. Thank you.
Forward Focus…..I needed to hear that today! Deep Belly breaths are the BEST! In gratitude!
Yes, you both certainly do give such wise, thoughtful and helpful tips to get the most out of our lives!! Thank you!
I am so saving the link to this video! Thank you, Sue and Marci, that was fabulous! <3
I love you ladies! Such a simple practice, and a simple switch to make inside. Thank you! And a lovely reminder from both Sue and Oprah, how blessed we really are.
The feeling/thought that came to me while doing the breathing was, ‘It’s all here’. Indeed.
Katinka, this is such a wonderful realization, great things do come from small and simple things! 💖💝
Thank you for this visualization!
I am cleaning my body and mind and replenishing with Fresh intentions for ABUNDANCE in ALL DIRECTIONS!!
So blessed to be in your company every morning! Your garden of ideas fills me up with joy and everlasting peace, Marci and Dr. Sue. You are lighthouse in the middle of a stormy sea which guides us through towards safe and blissful path. You are in my prayers always.
I will try the breathing exercise. Thank you,
I didn’t know this was SO public
But. Maybe now I will Be Heard.
I love this abundance exercise! It feels so good, thank you!

Thankyou Marci and Sue.
Thank you Sandi! 💖💝
This message touched my soul today. We have a prenatal mindfulness course for pregnant moms to connect with their babies. As I was listening- I kept feeling the abundance of souls being connected – and pregnant moms prioritizing self-care for her and babies. WOW. Thank you!
One of my miracle intentions for this year of YOM is stated as: I am abundance. To feel and know this truth, has changed my way of life. Every breath a prayer, every circuit a new opportunity to shine light that was held tightly until it was lovingly released. I am (insert a joyous word of bliss dancing) enjoying the creative abundance of creativity.
Feeling the abundance of breath within me I can now feel that, as Dr. Morter said at the end, that “abundance comes from within, not from outside of me.”
Thank you for sharing this exercise and wisdom.
