Money – the elephant in the living room. What good is finding your mojo or following your heart if the money stuff is not sorted out?! At the beginning of 2013 I made a choice to master money. I wasnt sure where that choice would take me but by planting that seed in my subconscious mind I became aware of the underlying assumptions about money that were perpetuating my poverty mind set. Now I dont have the answers but I have started to go exploring. I have found a free 7 day online course http://www.themoneyshaman.com/ from Davide De Angelis, The Money Shaman and want to share the daily challenges that I am receiving.
I am not suggesting or recommending this course but I want to invite you to see what blocks and questions are coming up for you and then what learnings, lessons and guidance might come your way.
DAY SIX: The second last day of The Money Shaman FREE, money challenge ecourse.
I have been experiencing some nice expansiveness around abundance and money. A big realisation so far is that what I may love to have in my life may have a price tag but that doesnt mean I have to pay for it. In my mind I conflate the price of something and the thing itself. I suspect that ‘Money Intelligence’ which is the topic for today is about realising the nuances of underlying assumptions like this one which means that because I dont have money then I cannot possibly think about spending it. Just seeing that written down makes me think what tosh is that! If I dont think about I would love because I believe the only way for it to come to me is through money that I think what is obvious is that I will never get it! It wont be in my consciousness, I wont have truly engaged in the truth of it for me.
This reminds me of a recent Facebook post from a friend of a sports car he spotted with a base price tag of plus £80K. He protested that he is not a materialistic kind of guy and I could feel his discomfort coveting something so expensive. I reflected back to him that his heart’s love of precision engineering and aesthetic made it heart stoppingly beautiful. Seeing the truth of that he can be more connected with something that he loves. And in that space he doesnt have to own it to receive the abundance of it.
The invitation today is to stop searching for the one thing that will bring money and abundance to you. The BIG BANG, the one and only realisation. What I get from my musings is that by slowly and surely seeing and feeling abundance in the moment, by gently peeling away the layers of our assumptions about money as I am doing we shift the power from seeing the world in a small limiting way to a big expansive way and we arriving at a multi-dimensional relationship with abundance and money is just one element of it.
I invite you, if you choose, to download David’s ecourse not so much to read what he writes but to see what you think about what he writes. Notice what that little voice in your head says and notice when your thoughts are expansive and when they limit and contract. When they limit and contract ask yourself what that is about and see what floats into your consciousness. Interesting stuff I guarantee when you choose to engage.
