You can create all the money you need to have all of your needs met, in a way that makes you feel good about yourself and about your life.
If you are struggling with money, then you may need to change the way you look upon money. Even if you have lots of money, but other areas of your life are falling apart, you may need to change the way you look upon money. This is not hard, but it does require willingness to look at money in a different way than you may have been accustomed.
Money is just a form of energy, so for a moment, you may let go of the idea of money and just focus upon the idea of energy, even the life-force that you breathe in and out every moment of your life. It’s easy, it’s natural – to breathe. You take in energy, you give out energy, you let it flow … you don’t try to stop the flow, you don’t sit and worry when you exhale whether and where from will another breath come, you just let it come in and go out. You can do the same with money … just let it come in, and let it go … in a balanced way.
Every moment of your life you are exchanging your energy with the world around you. You are not just giving or just taking, but exchanging different forms of energy. And energy is convertible.
You go outside and it’s a beautiful sunny day and it makes you feel so good and happy. You feel nourished by the warmth and the brightness of the sun and then you go and share it with the world. You walk around with a smile on your face and someone smiles back and says “Hi!”. And you may respond and even engage in a pleasant conversation.
This is all a natural exchange of energy. You did not work hard at it. You were just enjoying yourself and expressing the good feelings you felt. The world reflected it back to you and you ended up being enriched in some way.
Creating financial abundance is just like that. You look into your heart and find something that makes your heart sing with joy, something that you enjoy doing, something that feels natural for you to do and makes you feel good about yourself. Then you go out and share it with the world. If you like to sing and dance, you go out and sing and dance. If you like to write, you sit down and write. If you like to create something, you go out and create it. You don’t do these things because of money, but because they make you feel good. As you share the joys of your heart with the world, you are offering your energy to the world and the world will offer its energy back to you; and if money is what you need, then you may ask for money and you’ll get money. If you have enough money and you don’t need any more, then you can exchange it for some other form of energy, whether it’s a smile, feeling of appreciation and gratitude of whatever other form of energy you would like to experience.
What you are ultimately exchanging is love … you let your heart speak through what you do and you get love back in any form that fulfills your needs. If you share a lot of love with the world, you get lot of love back. And again, this energy of love is convertible. It will take any form that is required to meet your needs. As you let it flow out of you freely and open yourself to receive it freely, just like the flow of your breathing, whatever you may ever need, will come your way.
When you breathe, you never think that you have to be in some particular spot in order to get the air that you need. You know that the air is all around you, and so is love and the energy of money. In it you live and move and have your being. You can even love a sunny day, or a tree, or a pet, or do something that makes you feel good to help one person and get money in exchange – from a totally different place – even a lottery – because you are at all times exchanging the energy with the world, not with any particular place or person. It is a holistic relationship. So, if you lose one job, it doesn’t matter. That job is not the “source” of your financial abundance. It is only one of the “channels”. The “source” of your financial abundance is the world, or more appropriately the love you choose to share with the world. As you go out to do something that will make the world a better place, the world will do something that will make your life more fulfilling and meaningful.
Do not get fixated on any particular “channel” for any of your needs, financial or otherwise. If you do, you’ll get stuck and you’ll feel frustrated when that particular channel is unable or unwilling to deliver what you need. Let go and let what you need come from wherever it wants.
Do not let fear block you from expressing what you really love to do. Have guts to follow your heart and be true to yourself. You develop a healthy relationship with money not through fear, but through love, through honoring and expressing your heart, through doing that what you love, through doing that which is meaningful to you, through doing that which makes you feel good about yourself and about your life.
Sometimes I get emails from people who say they want to “help the world” but don’t have enough money. If you genuinely desire to help the world, then you can begin with what you have, by taking whatever action you are able to take. Your love, desire and enthusiasm for your “mission”, supported by your action, will then draw into your life whatever help you may need, financially or otherwise, to serve the world in a way that is most appropriate for you. And even if you don’t have a single coin to your name, if you just sit in meditation and send feelings of love and goodwill to the entire world, the way will open up and the opportunities will come your way. Love always responds to love, though what you need and desire may come from totally unexpected channels.
