How do you view money?
This is not a trick question it is actually a very powerful question and one that should not be taken lightly. Money is energy. If we put positive energy into our thoughts about money, we are fueling that energy and causing it to fire up and get stronger. If, on the other hand, every time we think about money, we think about our bills
and all the problems that we have because we do not have a sufficient supply of money, we are actually placing our energy around lack and fear. We are then fueling a negative cycle of energy that builds on itself and causes even greater feelings of worry and lack.
I would like to suggest that you begin to watch what opens up for you when you value your relationship with money and treat it with respect and love. A money relationship is no different from any other type of relationship if you nurture and treat a relationship with positive energy, that energy will grow and blossom into an even bigger and better relationship but if you neglect and abuse the relationship, it will shrink, and otherwise wither and die.
In today's global world, we are placing too much emphasis on what money can buy and not sufficient attention to how money can and will bless and sustain us if we treat it with care; that is, value and appreciate its usefulness. Money is simply a tool that allows us to fulfill our wants and desires, it was not conceived to be the end all - just the vehicle to help us get there.
There are many people in the world who do not have a large supply of money yet they are exorbitantly happy and content and on the flip side of the coin there are many people in the world who have a large supply of money and are completely miserable and depressed.
Don't let money or the lack of it stand in the way of your happiness. Instead, create a healthy relationship with money and allow it to work for you and your needs and desires. We all want more things but right now I would rather focus on being comfortable and content with having all of my needs satisfied. As I learn how to accomplish this skill perfectly, I know I will be better prepared to nurture that same skill to start bringing in sufficient money to take care of my desires.
In order to build a healthy relationship with money, you must feel that you are worthy to receive it. If you do not believe that a certain amount of money is attainable or that you deserve to have it, you will not attract it into your life. Therefore, the first step to consider is to believe that you deserve to have it and second that your attitude and behavior indicates that you value money and appreciate its worth.
Next check out your self-image and how it is affecting your relationship with money. If you do not honor or respect yourself, how can you expect to attract more of anything into your life? Learn to open your mind and heart to receive. How does it feel to receive? If you are angry or jealous about what others have, you are closing the door to your own heart and pushing the more that was earmarked for you away.
