YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
03. I love & respect money
It’s time to evaluate your relationship with money. We have a relationship with everything and everyone in our life. It simply means how you treat something and how it treats you back. Money is an energy but since we need money to survive, we have a relationship with it the same way we would with a partner. Things and people we don’t appreciate, eventually find their way out of our lives. Money is the same. If you don’t appreciate the money you already have, it will be hard to attract more of it. If you hoard it, afraid to spend it, it shows you don’t trust it to come back, and money stays away from you, not wanting to return to someone who holds it captive.
We have money beliefs behind our money transactions. When you spend money, think about how you feel when you’re spending it. Does it feel good or bad? Are you worried that you won’t have enough for bills? This is very common. Try a new way of thinking and see what happens. Trust that the money will not only return, but that it returns in greater amounts.
Next time you buy something imagine money is like a bird and it flies away and finds more money friends and then when it’s done having fun being free, it returns back to you in a greater amount when you least expect it. Also, while paying for something, feel true gratitude for being able to get something in return (the thing you are buying) whether it’s a cooked meal or a cool gadget. Feel the appreciation that someone cooked food for you. Even if you’re paying for a bill, feel the feeling of gratitude that the money is able to provide you with Wi-Fi or a car that takes you places. Do not overlook this practice.
I recently tried an experiment after receiving a $900 bill. I normally would charge it on a credit card but this time I realized something. I was afraid to spend my real money on large bills because deep down I feared, I would run out of money. I didn’t trust it. I decided to take the leap and say “OK money, I trust you”. And I paid the bill with cash. Within a few days, I earned it all back with unexpected sales on my website. This was a big lesson for me about my own relationship to money and limiting beliefs.
Another way to respect money is to stop blaming it for problems. For example, many people believe that money creates problems; that the more you make the more problems you will have. How do you think money feels about this? If money were a person, it would probably want to stay away from you because no one wants to be blamed for your problems. If there truly were more problems that came with money, money can also help you eliminate and solve those problems.
Let’s practice showing money more respect by valuing every penny that we find on the street and everything we are able to purchase because of it, no matter how little it may be.
How has money been treating you?
How do you treat money?
Do you love or hate it?
Do you give it away freely or are you afraid to spend it?
Do you value the things you buy with money?
Do you mistreat it?
Do you take money for granted?
Let’s pretend money is an entity of its own. If money was a person, would you keep treating it the same?
What would it say about how you treat it?
