How would you describe your relationship with money? Is it a love and hate relationship? Is money your lover and pouring into your life easily? Is money the source of all evil?
Money is not the issue, it’s what you think about money that is!
“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”
― Byron Katie, Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life
It’s what we think about money that is responsible for our financial situation. What we think about money is what is real and true for us; even if it is not logical and crazy for us. The brain does not make a difference between right and wrong, it believes what we believe in. Often, these beliefs are not even conscious or cognitive, we acquire them as we grow up and if we do not question them, they become our reality. The good news is that you have the power to change them!
The Biggest Lie
Before we dive into your thoughts about money, let’s dismiss a big lie! Money is not the source of creation, you are! Do you remember the last time you wanted something so badly and you did not have the money for it yet? Remember this, how old were you? Did you create the money with an extra job, sold your belongings, borrowed money from your parents, took a loan? Did the lack of money stop you back then? No, right? You found a way to create this extra money because you wanted this so much. And then, you forgot how potent and magical you truly are to manifest what you truly desire.
When we grow up, we often use money as an excuse or justification for what we cannot or will not do, choose or have. Just be aware of what you think and say with money and everything else. Every word and thought you use are a blueprint to create your future.
