First of all, I’m so thrilled and honored that I’ve been asked to create a co-blog with Erin Elizabeth of Currency Camp!
I love the idea of weaving the topic of money into the first Blog of the new year. Why? Because, the currency of money is intertwined with the quality and fabric of our lives! When we work on our stories around money, we have the potential to make big changes in all areas.
In her blog post, my friend Erin Elizabeth points out, “When you don’t create an intentional belief around money, you will default to your financial nature, what others have told you about you and money, or some kind of dysfunctional combination.” This makes perfect sense to me. So…!
NEW YEAR’S INTENTION
It’s a perfect time to set an INTENTION for the year of 2017, to have an EVOLUTION around the way we think and feel about money and to, “let go” of the endless repetitions of the same old money themes!
So, what does the word EVOLUTION mean and how can I apply it to money?
- Any process of formation or growth; development
- a product of such development; something evolved
- a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development
Honestly, I found this definition from Webster rather boring. So, I decided to look in the Thesaurus for synonyms!
SYNONYMS FOR EVOLUTION
- change, expansion, growth, progression, transformation, flowering, maturation, unfolding
Now, we’re getting somewhere. These words are inspiring to me! Who wouldn’t want an EVOLUTION around money. In fact, this is what the entire planet needs. Do these words inspire you…….or bring up fear?
Imagine if we could have an EVOLUTION around money. It would literally change the world.
MONEY AS SACRED
Money used to be considered sacred, literally part of the divine, connected to the spiritual side of life. Since we are also part of spirit or the divine, we aren’t separate from the energy of money.
Currently, because of the way we think, money is mostly aligned with fear, power and greed. Limiting money beliefs are rampant. They include: Most of the money is in the hands of a few, money is finite, money is evil, money always leaves, there’s never enough, it’s a struggle to get money, people who have money are greedy, etc., etc.
Guess what….this isn’t even true!
MONEY IS ENERGY
The truth is, MONEY is energy just like everything else and it takes on the attributes and qualities of how we feel and think about it. The beliefs we have about money are a mindset, a perception. Money will do exactly what we believe it will!
What is a belief? A belief is simply a thought that we have thought, over and over with FEELING!
How did we come to believe that we are separate from the energy of money? How did this happen? Of course, the path of the current money mindset is long and varied. However, for most of us, our beliefs about money were given to us by our parents and reinforced by authority, the media and the traumas and dramas that we’ve experienced throughout life.
EXPANSION & GROWTH
Where do we begin? We have to start somewhere and that somewhere has to be with ourselves. So it’s time to release the vibrational density we have around money, think new thoughts and imprint new perceptions and beliefs about money. Let’s begin to take money back to a sacred place, to a higher vibration, closer to the vibration of love or appreciation.
I encourage everyone to join me to make a commit to a “MONEY EVOLUTION“ in 2017. Once we make a commitment, the Universe will knock itself out to help! We have to show up every day with intention. When we are triggered or feel discomfort regarding a money issue, we need to drop into the center of the discomfort. From that place of present awareness, we are able to digest or burn it. Then it gets easier.
Money as a love energy? It may seem like a tall order, but let me remind you…….an “EVOLUTION” is, transformation, an unfolding, expansion!
I think it fits.
