This months theme has truly been around money for many. Money can be a beautiful exchange of energy or it can be a control device. Money may give a false sense of power, grandiosity, or the flip side can represent freedom. Money can make people feel like the hero or the savior to others, but then can end up enabling those to not feel their full power. Money can build the ego and cause it to think you need certain things that go along with lots of money, the clothes, the traditional beautiful people, and the false sense that other should give respect to you because you hold the key to freedom in this world supposedly. However, respect comes deeply to those who truly respect and love themselves no matter what they have materialized on the outside.
I am amazed at how illusionary money power can cause people to be blind to themselves and their issues. To truly see ourselves, we need to be able to hear truth without defensiveness or resistance. In fact, if you hear something and immediately feel a visceral response to defend inside the body, chances are there is some truth to what is being said to you.
I listened to a video recently with Yogi Bhajan speaking, and let me tell you he is fierce when he speaks. Not sweet at all! He was speaking to the group about how the neuroticism of people cause them to constantly judge and pick on the things he says. Those listening to spiritual insights immediately want to jump in and say, that is not true, or this is true. Why not sit in the neutral mind and receive, absorbing whatever wishes to awaken something that needs conscious love? Why react with anger to prove that you are ok, against what is heard?
Those whose life is consumed by making money, may very well make it, but there is another way to make it that will bring you much more fulfillment: LOVE and GROUNDING TO SOURCE. The grounding is especially important because the LOVE without grounding equals flakiness. Love with grounding equals knowing of your worth, feeling tremendous self-love, that it overflows and pours out not only to those you speak to, but also pours out as ENERGY which attracts, more energy including money. Speaking love, does not always mean sweetness. It can be, but sometimes words need to be fierce. Sometimes when people are in deep illusion and ego, you need to speak words loudly or intensely with no more sugar coats. This is my lineage way.
This week, take a look at your relationship to money. How does it consume you? How does it build you and add to your life, and how does it detract? Ask in at least 3, 11 minute meditations to see yourself clearly and how money plays itself out in your life.
-Simply sit quietly, and call your higher self in.
-Then ask for 3 images to appear in your minds eye as information about your relationship to money.
-When the images appear, see if you can come up with 3 faulty beliefs that you are holding in the mind and body that are detracting from your fullness around money.
- For example, is there a belief that you must continue to work a certain job? Or is there judgments about how others should act with money? Judgements and triggers about other people are information for yourself. Clear these beliefs through finding where they rest in your body by saying them out loud and then thank them for being there. Yes, honor even your faulty beliefs.
-Next, breathe them out of the body and create 3 new affirmations for a new way you would like to live or a new belief you would like to have.
Example Belief: I have a lot of money, therefore people SHOULD treat me a certain way since this money gives me power in some form.
When you say this belief, let’s say you feel it in the 3rd chakra.
Next: I thank you body for holding this, I no longer need you, I release you. Exhale.
Affirm: I treat others as equals, and when they reflect to me something I do not like, I examine myself.
Do you see the difference? One way has entitlement, and the other way has consciousness!
I thank you for reading for you are me and I am you. We are one. Your souls complete my soul. “I am made whole by your life. Each soul, each soul completes me.”~ Hafiz Let’s heal this together. We are in this together.
