I bumped into to an acquaintance the other day who had set up his own business and seemed to be doing quite well, although he seemed very tired. On enquiring about his low energy levels, he casually replied that he was "chasing the money" and that "we all have to, don't we?"
This is a false belief which is prevalent among the majority of people today, so check in with yourself to see if this represents how you feel about your life and what you have to do to provide yourself with an income. Ask yourself what ideas do you have about your world? What ideas do you have about money?
Remember that your energy and being are your gifts to the world in this lifetime. You will only become magnetic to money as you discover what you love to do and take small action steps to bring those activities into your daily life.
What makes you come alive? This vital clue will help you to manifest greater emotional and financial abundance in your life. Everything you enjoy doing - every job, hobby, or activity - involves using certain skills and abilities. What things do you enjoy doing in your job? What are your hobbies? What are you passionate about?
Asking key questions of yourself brings you closer to understanding your true purpose and how you can be magnetic to money. Constant re-evaluation of self is also vital. As Peter Goldman of the Centre for New Directions eloquantly states "we don't sign once for life!"
I happened to watch a movie trailer the other day and one line in particular encapsulated our individual and global desire to create a life that is in tune with the Infinite:
"You have a calling... You will be miserable for the rest of your life until you accept that."
If you are currently feeling stuck and disempowered, stop for a moment. Remember that at some level you have created the reality you are currently in. Your thoughts, words and actions have led you to where you are today. To change your reality, you need to change your thoughts, words and actions.
Inner change nearly always precedes outer change, else the outer change is transient and unsatisfactory. The more conscious you become of your energy, the less possible it is to sweep under the carpet those areas of your life which aren't working.
What you are doing right now has within it the seeds of your life's work. As you may have discovered, each time you get a new job you use many of the skills you have already developed. Each lays the ground for the next step. There is no such thing as a dead-end job, only a dead-end attitude. Make a decision to see the positive aspects of everything you do and search for a way to improve at least one thing that you do each day.
Life is a hologram, a projection of Infinite Mind, of which we are all a vital part. We see with our mind, not our physical eyes. To illustrate this last point, think of a time when you were looking for something and couldn't find it, only to have someone come up and say "Look, dummy. It's right in front of you!". We see parts of the tapestry of life but we cannot see all of it at the same time. This is the illusion we have created for ourselves.
It is important to see yourself as successful in the past, as well as in the present and future. Time is spherical, not linear, and by healing the past, you heal and empower your present and future. If you have experienced some "failures" there will be always be key learnings that you took from that, which can be viewed as a success.
Money is energy and responds to how you are feeling. When your physical, emotional and mental energy is clear and flowing, the more energy and time you have to give to others. Through right work, the money that you create from this clear, flowing stream is money of Light that will bring good to you and others.
As you continue along the path of joy, you become magnetic to abundance. Each time you receive money and you consciously acknowledge that incoming stream, you make it possible for you to receive more. Remember to pay all your bills lovingly to keep the flow.
If it resonates with you, try saying the following affirmation each time you have to write a cheque, or pay a bill:
"I circulate money out into the Universe for the highest good of all. I know that it will return to me multiplied."
If you feel afraid to take the first step to change your current reality, know that for every part of you that is afraid, there is a part of you that knows you can succeed. Also, remember that it takes vaster amounts of energy and time to do simple work which isn't in alignment with your highest path than it does to do complex work which matches your skills and abilities.
As you continue to seek abundance, remember that more money alone will not bring you inner joy or love. The intangible gifts are the real, eternal gifts from Spirit. Money is just a reflection of how you are feeling, your inner state.
Are you feeling joy?
My vision is to empower others to become aware of their true natures, and to help them live more joyfully and consciously. What is crucial today is awareness of Self and its vital role in guiding each of us to our true place in life, and our relationship to the whole. This is a state of being that empowers each person to enjoy every moment of every day and understand the seeds of opportunity that disguise themselves as challenges and obstacles.
