… to question the beliefs we hold about it. Do you believe that money is something hard to attain? That you have to give in to the daily grind and won’t get out until you’re retired, if ever? So many of us operate out of the assumption that we live to work, and that it is impossible to create contentment and abundance with the resources we already have.
Frequently, our self esteem is tied up in material wealth. Many people fear that if they come from a less than ideal monetary background they will have little opportunities, and might even be judged as someone who has little worth.
The rise of the material focus is intimately connected to the loss of a deeper connection to spiritual life. Many people have lost faith in religion. They rightfully don’t want to subscribe to the dogmas of the past, and sometimes find little meaning in life. Society tells us that making money is what makes us happy, so a lot of energy goes into trying to attain material resources.
That doesn’t mean that you have to give up your desire for financial stability. Of course it is important to feel secure enough to know where your next paycheck is coming from. It simply means to examine consciously what kind of life is really important to you, as opposed to the single minded focus on acquiring wealth as we know it.
Changing your relationship to money also means to repair our own attitude when it comes to deserving. So many of us have learned to believe that we are not made to live a life free of worry about the future. Many of us are simply unable to receive. Many women, especially, are so programmed to give to other people that we neglect to even tune into the energy of receiving.
But the truth is that we are already valuable. Simply by being ourselves. By paying attention to other fellow human beings, to our kids, our pets, our plants. This by itself makes us deeply valuable human beings.
