I seek money! I am not ashamed to say it, in fact, I know that is a big part of my WHY. Yep, it’s out there to the world. I don’t feel guilty or ashamed.
What is your WHY? What do you WANT? Are you going to say it outloud, YOU WANT MONEY! Money seems to be the ticket to freedom, and less stress, or is it? How do you view money? I know over the years, I’ve done so much work on myself, that at one time, I had to learn how I viewed money. It was time to break through an obvious block.
Well, I did. Here’s how it played out.
I began meditating; I have practiced bringing my awareness to my heart space, so it wasn’t difficult to begin. Once in that space, I called money to come in. It may sound silly, but in our heart space, this is where you can communicate spirit to spirit. And since, money is simply energy, I knew I could call it in and see how did my spirit viewed money. We view things symbolically, and spirit speaks in symbols. Symbols can be a color, an image, a movie scene, a quote, anything that we connect with, that offers understanding. For me, I am given visualizations, and lots of analogies that I relate to. If you haven’t done this level of meditation, maybe it’s time you did. Ok, calm down! I hear you saying, “Isn’t this just a waste of time?” My only answer is, I don’t know, is it?
Ok, back to money, how did it show up for me? It came to me, as a man, tattooed from head to toe. I remember feeling fear, that flight or fight response when something shows up that scares you. I had to take deep breaths and once I remembered I had nothing to fear, I began speaking. I called money into my heart space, and I heard audibly, “You don’t want me to come in.” Yes, I began having a conversation in my heart space, with money. I admitted I was scared, but wanted it to come in. I asked, “Is there something that we could figure out for you to come in and me to accept you?” I’m happy to say, I got it figured out; my solution was, I knew I needed to become more familiar with money. You see, I was scared to have it, actually I was embarrassed by it. And, it resembled greater responsibility to me, and who needs more to do? I sure didn’t! That was my turning point, my relationship with money took a positive turn.
Yes, I have money. Yes, I am happy where I am financially BUT I do want more. Just by typing this, I can see a pattern emerging. I struggle with acceptance. Accepting what I have. So my ‘wanting’ more money is heard by the universe, that I ‘lack’ money. And the universe will always give you what you ask for!
What the hell? Yes, it’s a tricky one.
You see, me wanting more money, actually is telling the universe I don’t have enough. Which the thought, I don’t have enough, means I am focusing on the lack of money. So in reality, I’m getting exactly what I’m asking for.
You see, this theory is what’s in the book, Think and Grow Rich, I spent so many months trying to figure out. See quote below…
“Our minds become magnetized with the dominating thoughts we hold in our minds and these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.” – Napoleon Hill
Just for today, spend some time with money. How do you relate to it? Is it a friend or foe? So in the end, it comes down to YOU! You are the only one reponsible for your own learning, your own bank account, your own success. Stop the blame game and accept responsibility for where you are in life.
It’s ok, I promise once you befriend money, it will hang out with you more often. Money is not your enemy, it turns out, your thoughts are!
In the end, you have the power to manage your thoughts, creating the life you imagine! Let’s get on with it!
