Spiritual Living Abundantly

All of us want it and yet most of us are bowed down because of the lack of it. Living abundantly, for those who found it, does not take much. All it takes are simple measures that would not cost anything aside from a change in attitude. Honesty and goodwill does it while for the most times, fear of poverty hinders it. Here are proven practical steps:

Give. It is so ironic that people who give are those who have more. It is not true that those who are able to give can because they live on excess, as most people believe. On the contrary, people who give attracts powers in the universe (unbelievable though it may sound) to have more for them to give more. When giving is practiced, without expecting any in return, the person ultimately lives abundantly. Attracting the power of receiving is done through the practice of giving.

This is not easy, because if it is, everyone would have been living abundant lives by now. People who refuse the gift of being able to give have closed fists if you will and are miserable. This is why they are called misers. People who give are raised several notches more, they are happy. They also get the cooperation of everyone around, they get the reputation of being trusted, of being good hearted, and so the opportunity keeps pouring in.

Be Honest. Being honest goes beyond telling the truth. Being honest, is freeing the mind of encumbrances that slows people down. Dishonesty severs relationships and builds the image of untrustworthiness putting other people off. When that happens, opportunities get less, cooperation with other people is not achieved, loneliness sets in, more than that, there is confusion in the mind that affects even the simplest of better judgment further eroding the persons capabilities. In today’s world where everything is measured in cents and dimes, honesty is rare. Because it is, honesty is a very valuable asset. Honest people have clearer minds, better dispositions and could spot opportunities, not traps, whenever there is one.

Believe that there is enough for everyone. Scientists agree that the resources of the world could sufficiently provide even when the current world population is tripled. That is more than enough. The most successful people are people who recognized this and came up with ideas to harness the world’s resources to work for them. Everyone can.

Be Grateful. Gratefulness is recognizing that you have what you have and pleased to have it. It breeds contentment that enables you to move forward. When you are not pulled back by resentment, you move faster onward. Focusing on the good things in your life is focusing on the achievements that you otherwise would not have made. Focusing on positive things also relieves the mind of anger that have always resulted to having less or not being contented that results to greed which is more deadly. Gratefulness relaxes the mind.

When the mind is relaxed there is peace. If there is peace the person is better prepared to think of better ideas. Positive thoughts are energies. Energies attract the same energy. Positivity attracts the positive. Then you live more abundantly.

Traveling to Mexico for LapBand Surgery

Are you not just overweight, but severely or morbidly obese? If so, you may want to seek help. After all, if you continue to carry around excess weight, your risk of early death and other health complications increase. Most individuals in your shoes turn to the LapBand surgery. If you opt for the same, the cost may shock you.

In the United States, the LapBand surgery averages between $15,000 and $20,000. At this point in time, many opt to forgo surgery altogether. Many others look for cheaper alternatives. Yes, it is possible to find surgeons in the United States who have cheaper rates, but many find the best luck with traveling to another country. For example, in Mexico, the LapBand procedure averages between $8,000 and $10,000.

So, should you travel to Mexico to undergo LapBand surgery? Before booking your traveling arrangements, examine the pros and cons of doing so.

In terms of pros or plus sides, there is the cost of surgery. As previously stated, LapBand surgery costs about $10,000 less in Mexico. This means you are automatically able to save money. If covered by health insurance and your provider is willing to extend coverage to the LapBand, opt for a surgeon in the United States. If you are uninsured, Mexico may sound like an ideal option.

In all honesty, the biggest advantage to heading to Mexico is the cost of surgery. There are many more cons to traveling for surgery. For starters, there is the unfamiliar territory. Hospitalization is less than 24 hours for most patients. With that said, you cannot return to your normal activities immediately following surgery. For example, most patients need one week off from work. Following surgery, you need to rest and make slow moments, not spend up to 12 hours in a car or time on an airplane.

As previously stated, recovery is important following the LapBand surgery. You may think that you could just stay at a hotel and recuperate in Mexico. Once again, keep familiar territory in mind. The LapBand surgery is safe and effective, but it is a huge change. Your diet is limited to clear liquids immediately following surgery. Many patients find this process difficult or unbearable. For your sanity, opt for recuperation at home where you are surrounded by a strong support group.

Most importantly, travel costs effect the cost of surgery. As previously stated, the cost of surgery is, on average, $10,000 less in Mexico. You are unlikely to spend $10,000 in travel expenses, but you never know. A passport, long distance road trip, airline tickets, and weeklong hotel stay can easily add up in costs. Yes, you will still save money, but compare that money saved with convenience. Is it really worth it to be all alone in a foreign country without close friends and family to support you, only to save $2,000? In most cases, no.

Of course, safety should be examined. In the United States, Board Certified Surgeons are recommended. These surgeons undergo strict testing and must following certain rules and restrictions. Yes, other countries hold their surgeons accountable for their actions, but most do not have as strict rules as the United States. This means that your surgeon may have a low success rate with the LapBand surgery or they may have multiple complaints lodged against them, which you may never know.

So, should you travel to Mexico for the LapBand surgery? The decision is yours to make, but first examine your local options.
