Do you crave it? Do you hate it? Do you believe that money is the root of all evil or that having money is a prerequisite to a life of freedom and ease?
This month we will dissect our thoughts and emotions around money and come to a place of acceptance and understanding of what money energy is and what it isn’t.
First let’s define money: Money is a means of exchange. That’s all.
We give money to those that give us something of value and we receive money when we give something of value to someone else. The money itself is a neutral means of exchange. The emotions and the thoughts and feelings that we attach to it though are what causes us angst.
The journey we are undertaking this month is coming to terms with money as a neutral tool. It fuels our dreams and harnesses our passions, but it is not the determinant.
What does money mean to you? What’s your internal dialogue about money? Do you often find yourself saying, “I can’t afford that” or “That’s way out of my league.” Remember that your thoughts and feelings are giant magnets drawing back to you energies of the same vibrational pattern. Do you want to draw to you tightness, restriction and lack, or ease, flow and joy? You get to choose.
For the following week, keep track of your thoughts and words as you go about spending and earning money. Write out the thoughts that run through your mind as you engage with money. Are you in serious lack, fear and doubt? Think about the stories you’ve attached to money. Is it hard to get? Hard to keep? Does it slip through your fingers? Are you spending to ease the pain of loneliness or frustration?
These are not easy questions and they are not easy emotions to expose. But in order to change the vibration we have to first become aware of the energy we are sitting in. So breathe in some self-acceptance and lightness as you think about the energy of money. We will move out the old and bring in some new as we continue throughout the month, but for right this moment, just become aware of your money story.
