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 ONE: The Money Shaman FREE, money challenge ecourse.
The challenge I received was over the next 7 days to see what it is that comes easily to me, what is my second nature. My first thoughts are dreaming, reading, sleeping, thinking, writing, nattering on Facebook………..
Now what is interesting is that acknowledging these things that come easily to me doesnt make me feel better but rather makes me feel worse! How do I make money out of any of these talents – and how could they be talents anyway?! What I am really receiving in this challenge is that if we find it hard to see value in what is second nature to us then we avoid the pain of acknowledging what it is that puts us at ease and in the process avoid the possibility of engaging in who we truly are. I can feel my resistance to do this challenge for one more minute not to mind one more day. But I have been learning that there is gold on the other side of pain.
I invite you too to see what is your second nature and to acknowledge the thoughts and feelings that come up in that space.
