Let's talk about money! Seems to be a popular subject in today's world, but is it truly the root of all evil?
There is nothing that doesn't exist outside of God-Consciousness -- MONEY INCLUDED!!
GOD or Universal Consciousness or whatever name you call it -- it desires for you to be happy and have all the things in the world you desire to experience. It's important to note that money is a vehicle by which you can bring your desired experiences into reality -- it isn't going to buy you happiness.
You can be the richest person in the world and the most unhappy person at the same time -- so, we need again a balance of sorts.
Money, for a lot of people, is a source of abundance and they feel that with it they will be happy because they will be able to buy, do, and become the person they envision themselves to be because of money. Now, money, is an aide but it isn't the end all be all -- in fact, most people that have such a deep attachment to it and depend on it to make it in the world or simply be happy aren't feeling their already abundant source flow.
Another words, you already are abundant and there is nothing you cannot have because it already exists within you. People, need to truly understand the power of thought, and how our thoughts about our life and even money can repel or manifest that which we desire.
A person who feels they need more money, have no money, don't make enough money, etc. all are coming from a universal place of LACK -- thus, what they are focusing on truly is the "lack of money or abundance" and thus they keep creating this reality.
However, a person who sees money as a source of energy and realizes that what they give out will indeed return back to them is ultimately coming from a place of already having it.
There are a few things you can do; however, to spiritually attract money, if that is your desire. You can give donations to a church or person from which you feel spiritually enriches your life, you can give money to an organization that is making a difference in the world, or to a charity you believe in.
The amount of money doesn't really matter -- you can give a lot or you can give a little. You are sending a message that you have money to give and that's a statement loud and clear to the universe.
When out shopping try on that expensive suit you desire to have -- feel the shift in your energy as you wear it, see yourself wearing it, as you have it one envision you purchasing it or wearing out to a social gala, own it in your mind, believe you already have it and it will become a reality.
Far too many people, don't treat themselves the greatest -- if at all. Another words, if you wanted a shirt, blouse, shoes, a massage, etc. many will deny themselves that experience because they believe "I cannot afford that." or "I'll get it later." or, even still, "The bills need to be paid."
What is this sending out to the Universe about your financial standing?
You guessed it ... LACK!
Yet, we don't just deny ourselves material things, but experiences as well. It is important to give back to yourself for a job well done, a life well lived, etc. You need to re-nourish your soul by doing those things that make you happy and you, by in large, will be attracting more of those experiences and things into your life.
When your car is low on fuel -- do you keep driving it until it stops? Or do you stop off at a gas station and refuel the tank?
Remember, that this is your journey, and if you truly want to make a difference in another's life you must treat yourself first. If you constantly give away pieces of the pie what eventually happens is there is no more pie left; however, by you treating yourself to experiences and things you desire you will be refilling the pie plate with a full and complete pie.
Some Sources for Spiritual Fulfillment:
Make a purchase that you always wanted
Paying off that credit card
A family vacation
A new hair style
Visiting a Place of Beauty
The list can go on and on, and changes with regards to each person. So, what makes you happy? Is it a long walk on the beach, relaxing in a hot tub, etc.
Think about what helps replenish your soul so that you don't become cranky and irritable -- then do it!
I would say to do something for yourself at least once a week -- small or large, it doesn't matter just refuel your tank.
Now, with that taken care of let us return our focus back to money!
Money is a source of energy which is neutral in nature and we project value upon it as well as beliefs about it. Some people, believe that money is evil and thus they repel it from their life. Others believe money can help them and others and attract it into their life. Others still, believe they lack it and repel it from their life. While others, feel like they will never have enough and repel it from their life.
So, we must first shift our perception of money if it isn't in alignment with attracting it -- if that is indeed what you are looking to do.
Start with your personal economy -- don't look to the government to see how your economy is going. Did you know more millionaires are made during times of hardships and actually lack a college degree in many cases?
Are you one of those people that has a strictly tight budget with no room to budge? Do you feel like you are suffocating?
Well, odds are you need to shift your perceptions regarding money in order to breath again. Those who budget so tightly are actually coming from ... LACK. It is basically saying we need to do X, Y, and Z in order to afford our lifestyle which is in alignment that you don't really have the money.
We need to shift it to "Money flows freely and easily to me." or "I am abundant in all aspects of life; money, relationships, career, etc."
Create a list of your abundance and what you have to offer;
Do you have love to give?
Do you have sense of humor to share?
Do you have compassion to give?
Do you have empathy to give?
Do you have knowledge to offer?
Now to your current abundance:
Do you have a place to live?
Do you have a car to drive?
Do you have a source of income?
Do you have a talent?
Do you have friends?
Do you have a family?
Do you have people that love you?
Do you have food in the fridge?
Do you have a TV, a phone, a bed, etc.
Are you grateful for having those things? Or do you expect them and take them for granted?
Everything you have is part of your abundance -- internal abundance equals external abundance. So, when we need to acknowledge that our inner world is reflected into our outer experience.
So, in order to truly feed wealthy or abundant -- we must see that we already are by looking to all the things that we have, are, and will become.
By doing the above you will be attracting into your life more happiness, more abundance, and more wealth.
"I appreciate and am thankful for the things that I have, am, and know that I am abundant in all things."
"I am thankful for my paycheck because I know that it providing me a source of income, a lifestyle, and the ability to have X, Y, Z."
"I realize that my job is only an avenue through which money can come to me."
Think about that last one -- your job is only a source of income! It's not the only one! So, think how else can you create an additional stream of income?
