Life can feel like such a struggle for some, while for others it appears to be such a breeze.
Yet life is ‘ALL’ depending on your perceptions, thoughts, judgements & beliefs.
How you do one thing in life is how you will do ‘Everything.’
Today I am going to draw on ‘One’ of my very favorite guiding/teaching tools – Money!
And I invite You to let your relationship with #money be your guide too.
So how do ‘You’ view your money story?
Do you feel free and abundant with it, without a care in world?
Does it feel like it flows easily to you, or it is more like a runaway train stuck on full throttle running the opposite way.
The sooner you get it, it leaves again?
Has it been this way all of your life?
Or has there been a time that you can remember saying, “Ever since that time, Money or my Income has never been the same?”
Allow yourself to really Feel into these questions.
Feel what it feels like in your body if these questions resonate with you.
So what is your relationship with ‘Money’ like?
Does money make you feel a certain way – Angry, Resentful, Disappointed, Stuck, Worried, Sick, Sad, Embarrassed, Dis-empowered, Intimidated, Uncomfortable, Ashamed?
Does it make you feel like you are ‘Never good enough,’ you are a ‘Failure,’ ‘Not smart enough?’
Do you feel like ‘Money’ is for everyone else and not for you? Like there is ‘Never’ enough.
How does this make you ‘Feel’ – Sad and Pissed off right!
Do you feel like you are stuck on the hamster wheel having to ‘Strive and Strive’ and no matter what you do, Money just never arrives?
Do you Feel betrayed by ‘Money,’ does it Feel Taboo!
Are you afraid to ask for ‘Money’ with the work that you do?
Perhaps you don’t even feel comfortable having the conversation, saying the word – Money!
For me – The ‘Power I had given to Money’ was enough to make me feel physically SICK to my stomach!
It felt like I had battled and worried over ‘Money’ for as long as I could remember.
I desperately wanted to make money, yet it seemed that money had other plans for me.
Money for Me was entangled in Love.
A toxic love relationship full of fear and misunderstanding.
I had to learn that Money was just Money and Love was Love.
I seen Money as “everything’ but.
I seen it as the reason, the culprit of my Family fights and woes.
I seen it as the reason behind why my Brother had to die. It was the reason why my beloved Sister and I could never get along.
It stands to reason why unconsciously anytime I received ‘Money’ or ‘Money’ was the subject, I would come up in resistance and want to put distance between Me and It…
I was ANGRY with Money, or so I thought.
I had a Love/Hate relationship with ‘Money’ and a lot to learn.
Yet here’s what I learned.
Money is just Money! It is a form of appreciation.
I wasn’t about the money at all, it was about Me.
It was how I seen my own value in the World. It was about learning how to love myself.
I had a love/hate relationship with Myself going on and ironically, it was ‘Money’ that showed me how to heal this. #priceless #magic
So if ‘Money’ has always been a concern in your life – A Fear.
I invite you now to look at it in a different way.
Allow it to show you all of the ways your emotions have become stuck and are now controlling you.
Let Money show you where and how you have lost trust, faith and belief in yourself, in who you truly are, in your true value and abilities.
In what You are here for.
‘Money’ has the knack of showing you really quickly all of your discomforts and beliefs…
Have you ever handed over your credit card or debit card and had it declined? Allow yourself now to think of that instance right now and ‘Feel’ how quickly the embarrassment or shame shows up:)
That old embarrassment and shame will accompany you often even now – In fact every time you are in a similar situation where you are called to pay with your card again, you will feel this discomfort and fear rise up.
I remember what that was like – Yep it happened to me too!
But I am happy to report, NOT anymore.
Today I am so grateful to ‘Money’ and all the ways it teaches me. All the ways it shows up.
We as Human Beings find multitudes of ways to give our power away – Money is just ‘One’ of them!
So Is ‘Money’ the bain in your life?
How would you ‘Feel’ to take back all of that power?
To cure ‘Money’ stress in your life forever. You truly can do this, you can turn your money story around.
You can call out the B.S and see it for what it truly is. B.S!
You can start small by taking baby steps.
Just by becoming aware and acknowledging that your emotions are not your enemies, they are your friends.
They are always guiding you on where and how to let go and heal.
For such a long time I never wanted to Feel anything it was too much to bare, so I did my best to obliterate them, drown them, drug them, escape them, run from them, in anyway that I could.
But here’s the thing…
Your emotions and feelings just kept showing up and they can get so loud and so uncomfortable, they want to be acknowledged and heard.
Ignoring them and pushing them away can end up as physical pain, symptoms, illness and dis-ease.
Everything turned around for me the day I accepted that I was not just a Physical Be-ing. I was an EMOTIONAL Be-ing too. Plus plus:)
I had been rejecting this big beautiful part of me for so long and beating myself up in the process – And I bet if you are still reading this post that you too know how that Feels, don’t you?
So I invite you, to show yourself some compassion and more importantly, to invite those emotions in and thank them for showing up, get quiet with them, feel them, question them, learn everything you can from them.
This does not mean that you have to set up camp with them all. Acknowledge what you have come through, where you have been. Acknowledge the struggles in your life when you felt you didn’t matter.
Acknowledge where you have given away your power and taken on the role of victim. Acknowledge where you made it about everyone else before yourself and gave and gave until there was nothing left.
Acknowledge that this is your time now and commit to being with yourself.
You are the most important person in your life – You cannot give from an ‘Empty’ cup.
When you start acknowledging yourself in this way – Money is a form of energy, of appreciation, it will start to show up.
Money calls for a healthy relationship, it calls for structure and order. It calls for appreciation, starting with ‘YOURSELF!’
You may find through this practice where have you been believing something that is no longer in integrity with who you are, or how you want to show up in the world now.
Build your dreams on Who you are now, not on your past of ‘Limitation.’
Feel what it is like to Expand through your Limitation, see yourself as ‘Worthy and Deserving’ of great love.
You were born that way – It is your birthright!
If you have picked ‘Money’ in this lifetime to be a guide, then I invite you to stop what you are doing, get quiet with yourself and learn.
Your Happiness Value and Worth depend on it!
Love all of you today.
