What a remarkable day this has been. I woke up with a refreshing mind and a clear head. I saw what blocks lay ahead and I understood the path of how to shift my perspective for another abundant day to align. I received an email from a very loving soul, who you could feel really needed some new light and love in their life, they are an avid follower of mine and it was so beautiful to wake up to a message from her and the opportunity to help her through her blocks with the simplicity of just one, email response.
She has been having difficulty with her money mindset and called out to me for advice and help. In her message so sweet and pure, I noticed a few things common to a path I once was on. I was broke and had very little money, just scraping by. I was moving month to month with bills piled high and while manifesting what was needed, I was feeling suffocated by the lack of money that would actually have me feeling as if I am thriving, vs leaving me to feel depleted.
I'm being very candid here, it took me some time, learning many lessons along the way through various perspectives of being. I believe this was a lesson to learn from so I could better help The Collective being.
You see, many of us hold back from receiving the abundance of prosperity we need and WANT, because we have allowed the mindset in "we don't always get what we want", "money is hard to make" or "I can never achieve the life I dream about" and the worst one in my eyes... "money isn't a spiritual thing". These are all triggers setting you up to meet danger and road blocks ahead. You are accepting them into your field and are blocking your path to an abundant life and the future you wish to yield. Thus leaving you feeling broke and unable to do all the things you came here to do, in whatever form it is you are meant to.
For some, that means living a simple life in the country, living purely off the land and only needing and wanting a small amount of money each month, you may choose not to travel much, you may choose not to have many material things and choose to live in a land that has a lower cost of living. While others have made the choice in their lives to live differently, they have chosen to live in the city perhaps, and travel often, they love to be social and enjoy eating out at their favorite local restaurants and support their local community shops. Both perspectives are magnificent, and both come with different needs and desires, in all aspects of living. It is not for us to judge one or the other, however, to learn acceptance and love for the other we choose not to live within. Just because they are "different" doesn't mean they are bad or aren't worth anything.
The most important things to look at is the needs of the perspectives of one and another. The first person, who lives in the country, needs very little money to get by, they may or may not struggle, however, the simple fact is they need very little. The second person needs more money to get by monthly, they have higher bills, as cost of living comes at a higher rate where they live, they too, may or may not struggle with their mindset and money flow. Each perfect. Each necessary for growth, on all levels, individual and collectively.
Each has the same opportunity to receive abundantly or come up "short-handed". They each have the ability to turn their situation around and see life with a different perspective if they feel they keep coming up short handed, or are unable to do all the things they have wanted to in their realities. Perhaps their simple desire is to "just keep up with the Joneses". We must remember never to judge but to love. For everything has its reasons, everything has its purpose.
I felt so inspired by this conversation this morning that I felt the desire to write about it, to help shift perceptions of it and help others see, that we can move beyond these thoughts of judgment and perspective of having and having not. Remember you are not your thoughts, you are the image of the sum of your thoughts. And much suffering and lack in life can arise when you take each thought that comes into your head as truth, it is up to you to decipher what your thoughts mean to you, what value you place on each one and where they land on the scale of truth to you. Always ask, how can these benefit you or others? I have seen many individuals create blocks to their money flow in life, myself included and some of the biggest ones I feel, that keep money suppressed from truly thriving in our individual lives are the three mindset mishaps described below. I have also included affirmations to flip that switch and realign yourself to a healthier and happier money mindset, so you too can feel rich.
3 Mindset Mishaps and How to Change Your Perspective For a More Abundant Future
To create any adjustment in energy it always starts with a feeling, if we want to attract something, we must learn to feel it first, act as if and align ourselves with it. Make a choice on it and dedicate ourselves to achieving it.
"Know what you want and be willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it!"
1. The Rich Get Richer, While The Poor Stay Poor.
This is only true if you allow and accept it to be. This is not the case in every situation, it is only the case with those who are unable to look beyond it. You know that feeling of, "that's too expensive, only the rich can afford it" or that buggering feeling when you see a celebrity spend their money in areas that you deem frivolous in many ways.
Well, if this is something you have come to believe, or a perception of your reality, of others that surround you...yea you know your friends and family, well I suggest a few things, to help you look beyond these thoughts and feelings that are held deep within your being.
"My money is worth, the same as every body's."
This will help level your frequency scale and rate of attracting money flow into your life. Just because someone has more right now, doesn't mean they didn't have less at another point. That means, if they can do it, so can you, from the positive perspective to view. It's only a choice if you choose to make a move and do something differently, even if it's simply an adjustment of your mindset. Balance your thoughts and judgments and you balance your frequency rate of attracting more money into your reality.
"The value of life is the makeup of the SUM of its parts."
Not all things are created equal, yet everything always balances out. That means what you pay for a service, a good, or an experience in life, it has an equivalent exchange for what you receive. You know when you go to the store and buy one product, from the Dollar Store, for instance, it has a lower cost to make that product, yet if you go to William Sonoma, that similar kitchenware product you bought at the Dollar Store, has a different cost for its makeup. Thus, it holds a different value. If you choose to buy the Dollar Store product, that product may only last for a few months, yet that was all you could "afford" in your mindset at the moment, so you chose this path. The William Sonoma product lasts a lot longer, so you don't have to replace it, for years. The face value is different than the long-term value, which means, even though you "saved" at the forefront of your purchase, you have to keep coming back again to purchase more product.
This doesn't mean you are not still paying for the makeup for this product, so you wouldn't ask the Dollar Store to lower their cost, because it doesn't last as long as the William Sonoma product and because you have bought the product 10x again within the same year. No. You would simply keep feeding into the machine, and forget that you are actually paying a higher price, and create more turmoil in your life, for asking for "lower quality" and a "lower upfront cost". Remember these things apply to everything. Services are just the same, they are the makeup of the skills and knowledge one brings. So question, what value does this bring, when you buy anything or go to repurchase something. We can be fooled once, ok, that's a lesson, fool me twice, ok I didn't quite get it, fool me three times and you simply ignored the lesson and haven't accounted for it.
"Money is spiritual to me" or "Money is energy."
This is a big one to me because as a spiritual person I often see people say "I'm not doing it for the money", or that if you are spiritual you shouldn't want money. But money is just as spiritual as all other things. It is merely one form that has "got a bad name". That's not because Money did anything bad, it is because the energies using it has affected the mindset of others, to create a vision of it appearing as "evil" in your current mindset. This is a block we bring that will prevent us from meeting our most basic needs. There are other ways to achieve these needs, however if you choose to live in a society where money is the common form of exchange or you do not want to do the work yourself to milk the cows and curdle your own cheese, you will need money for these things, or another form of exchange you can use to provide for the service of others doing these things.
Money was created by you, for you, to play with, to use, as a means for evaluating exchange, so awesome, love it, embrace it and enjoy this energy you bring! By creating a simulation in the physical form of "equivalent exchange", we have found a way to level the game, it's up to you to see this as a way to perceive and attach the energy to create more of these things. You see, there is a universal law, that is called The Law of Equivalent Exchange. Which means, for everything I give, I get the return in exchange. It must match energy for energy, not oranges and oranges always, it just means it must come with the same quality of energy held within it for what you want to create with it. This is an alchemical reaction, to turn, "water into wine", it holds the same properties and thus can be, when wielded with the appropriate force, adjusted to be exchanged as water and turned into wine. Thus, we are looking at the energy of money, versus the physicality of it, and can now manifest more of it. By offering a good or a service and asking for money in exchange for it. Or if you prefer, you can ask for something else you deem equal matter. The choice is always yours. Yet always respect the choice of others. If you want one thing, there is always a way to find it, but remember there is always an exchange for it.
2. Time is Money and I Have NO Time To Make More of It!
Yes, time can equal money, this is okay, however, you have added something. You say you have nothing and no time for it. Therefore you have already told yourself you cannot override the fact that you have no time or money, to do anything about the situation you are in. If you refuse to see there is a choice in this, you can block yourself from so many things, not just the receipt of money and prosperity. You can choose to block yourself from time with friends and family, or time to relax and unwind and see the gifts of the world through traveling and experiencing life. Which is the higher cost to pay? What choice do you prefer to make?
If this doesn't feel right and you want to adjust these mindset patterns, align yourself into the belief and realization that:
"You can create ANYthing."
As a painter, you wouldn't tell yourself, "I can only paint apples, nothing else. If I could paint other things, then I would be something else." Because yes, you would be something else, you would be gifted, you would realize that you could do more than one thing and you have a gift to share with the world in a variety of things. However, if you chose to have the mindset that you can only do one thing, then you have short handed yourself, no one else has done such a thing. So, if we shift the mindset to believe that the process of creating time, is equivalent to the process of creating money, is equivalent to the process of creating apples, then we will see, as a Creator Being, we can create ANYthing.
"I am abundant in ALL things."
Look out at life, see how everything is provided for you in abundance, be grateful for the gifts of an opportunity presented and the varying levels of abundance provided. Perhaps, when you look out of your window you see 10 trees, but when you look out your neighbor's window, you see 20 trees. Do not begrudge your neighbor for having more trees, be grateful for having the abundance of trees that you do have, in this moment and if you want to see more, then create growth and plant new seeds for your future. This is the same for all things. If you want an abundance of growth in your prosperity, plant more seeds, do more things.
"Money works for me."
Spread your wings and see the world. Show yourself how you can make it work FOR YOU. Everyone uses money differently, everyone wants and needs different things. So the way I use money is different than the way you use money. Therefore we need to create a path for us to make money work for us and our ways, vs always looking outside of us, for how money is working for others and allowing those thoughts to seep in, that money isn't working for us. Well if you keep shunning it off, who would want to work for you, who would want to engage your company if all you ever do is tell them, they aren't doing their job or that they don't work for you! Let's be honest, if you were at work, doing your thing, following the flow of things, keep creating and presenting your ideas to your boss and every time you do, you get shut down, how inspired are you to keep doing great work and keep bringing great things your boss's way. You would feel depleted, weak, worthless and thus you would stop producing the same quality of material you once did before. How awful, you just completely forget that money is doing the same thing, and that you both hold a greater value and you both have the ability to do wonders in your world and make the most beautiful of miracles happen, every day. I mean, if I kept carrying that mindset, yeah, I wouldn't want to work for myself either. I'd hate me. And I love me. Don't you?! (Yourself I mean!) Don't worry I love you too!!
3. Money Doesn't Grow on Trees.
Magic, what is magic? It is the ability to make something from nothing. Miracles, what is a miracle? A solution appearing where you saw none before. Trees, what is a Tree? Something that was created, where there was once no more. A tree is something that is there standing tall and firm, abundantly growing and thriving from the Earth. It is a material manifestation of new growth, new opportunity and it rises to the occasion, as tall as it desires to be, from what looked like nothing, a simple seed, and a dream. It can grow for ages, patiently rising, growing and living through its life receiving all it needs, from everything it pleases. When it needs a friend, someone takes a walk and gives it a hug, when it needs time alone, it is planted in a distant forest, when it needs the sun, the sun arises, when it needs a drink, water falls from the sky. A tree, a tree is a miraculous thing. It grows endlessly and is given all it ever needs and more through everything because it trusts and believes in the concept that EVERYTHING is possible.
"Money is as miraculous as trees."
Money is a gift, created by the earth and sent from the heavens. It is something that was created by a thought and a chemical reaction. It is both soil and sky and has come to form in time. It has its own energy and grows in all ways it can, whenever it is planted in a fruitful land. With a loving hand and nurturing mind, money will grow endlessly throughout our time. If we feed it with intention and pure thoughts of love in abundance, it will expand and grow and will give an abundance in return. Just as trees grow many layers, and many leaves, so does money in a different way you see. Just because the picture of this energy has changed, it does not mean this energy can not DO the same thing. It is just as miraculous of a thing.
"Money appears at any time."
Money comes and goes. This is called flow. Life has it in a variety of form. It is the current, the tide, of shifted experiences to open one up to new channels and passages, new doors even. Money can appear just as often as trees do, throughout our journey's on the rivers of flow and everywhere we look is an opportunity for us to make a choice, as to which way we choose to look. We can see money arise and disbelieve it's there, so as quick as it arrives, it disappears. Wherever you are along your journey, no matter what point along the line you are at, money IS there. You just have to look, witness and allow it to appear. If you cannot see it in the moment, and your mind is still too scattered in fear, sit quietly and ask yourself... "If money is as abundant as the trees are upon this earth, and it truly is everywhere I look, what is the best way for ME, my body, my soul, to use my time, my energy and my tools, to see money arise in my life more frequently and more abundantly?"
Let's be honest... not everything, every opportunity, every boy or girl that comes along, is the best fit for you, it's up to you to choose, what works for you, what makes you happy and how it will please you. If you choose something that is working against your spirit, against your true purpose, you will feel pain and hurt from it. Just as we do in relationships. Yet, with every choice comes with its lessons and sometimes we need those lessons, so we can grow from it, learn to acknowledge it, cherish it and learn how to nurture our relationship with it. If we didn't have those experiences, we wouldn't be able to speak on it, or help others through it or get to the point where we rise above it. In this life or next, at this point or another, it's all the same, when the timing arises, you will see it, you will understand it and you will come to accept it as a part of you and love it for being there. Truly valuing its worth, along with your ability to create it and to receive it.
I hope these concepts and perception shifts can help create the adjustments that they have in my life so that you too can see how money can arise in your life and work with you, so to help you shift your paradigm and create the reality you want to see arise.
Enabling you to be able to do all the things you want to do. No matter the form of life you choose to experience, these shifts in mindsets will help you adjust your vibe and raise it up high. By opening your mind and aligning with a different perspective of money flow and busting through those money mindset blocks, all of those things, you've been dreaming of, will come to float. They will surface for you in ways you could never have imagined, leaving you inspired, maybe even to write a book or song about how you "started from the bottom and now... your here."
Holding no remorse, because you know, every single person out there holds the same power to manifest that you do, and make their money dreams a reality too. For whatever feels good for you. Life truly is your journey to live. And it's your choice in what you do to make your money into even bigger things, feel good about it and help others rise above their perspectives of it, when and if they choose to see more from it.
Enjoy the flow coming your way. You're off to do many more miraculous things.
Dream Big, Live Free.
