Is money significant in your life? Is having or not having money influencing how you feel about life in general and about you as a person?
Did you grow up with a similar message as I did? You have to decide what job you would like to have, get the education for it and then work in that job until you retire. What is the underlying message here? You work, work hard until you get to retire. You have to work hard so you can pay your bills that living creates (rent or mortgage, food, clothing, car, vacation for 2 weeks, etc.). Depending on how much money you earn you get to be in one of the categories: poor, lower, middle or upper Middle class, or rich. How much judgment revolves around those status symbols? How much do you judge yourself if you are not where you decided you should be?
What relationship with money does that create? You make money to spend it. May be there is something left over to save for later, for emergencies. How much have we bought into that we will be happy, if we have x amount of money? I would like to use an analogy: You give a party and invite people to it. You plan on having no music, no food and to sit around being unhappy. How many people do you think with come to the party? None. What the same is true for money. Being unhappy is not an invitation for money to show up. What if we got it all backwards? What if being happy not matter what invites money?
The Law of Attraction says what you pay attention to the universe provides more of. Making it a priority to being able to pay the bills will therefore provide more bills. What does it take to change the money situation? Having more awareness around the money that comes in and that goes out is important. So I kept all my receipts, put them in a box. The thought of having to go through them all and enter them into either a ledger or book keeping program did not make me jump for joy. That is still the boring party to which money is not going to come.
So what if we changed that to being curious about where the money comes from or goes to? What if we made money like a friend with whom we visit? What if we would ask the money if it likes to go to the places where we spend it or if it had other ideas? Crazy! From the perspective of how I grew up with it is absolutely crazy. What if it isn’t? Would you be willing to play with these ideas? I am.
