The great thing about putting a bunch of little rocks in concrete though is you still have time to move it before it sets. Worst case scenario, you jackhammer the sh#t out of that sh%t that's been set for 20 odd years already and get a truck to cart away those beliefs so you can keep on driving resources along the road of your journey and the path of loving service.
Grab your road crew, your shovel and your jackhammer because it's time to smash some more money beliefs that are keeping you from being fully funded and fabulous in your life purpose darling.
Money is EVIL!!! EEEEEEEVIL!
If you pictured Grandpa Simpson and heard his voice while i was saying that, we're on the same page. Actually, though, it's not. Money is an energy and a tool created to support our intention and support our creation on this planet. Thus the intention and energy projected onto it is entirely in the eye of the beholder ad the custodian. Money is just the innocent inanimate object caught in the middle of one giant projection fest. Money will flow freely to the person who has, with the most conviction decided on a purpose for it and has the least amount of blocks in the way between money and them. So, as a kick ass heart-connected, integral money guardian, who, given more money would do epicly awesome, making a difference things with it, it's time to get really clear: Relative to your major life and business goals, what purpose do you need that money for? Own it. And own it fully.
I can't be spiritual/in service to the planet and have money
Damn, that's a shame. Because Mother Theresa was a money magnet and she was SUPER spiritual. What if money can be just as much a tool used to help the planet and people, as destroy it? What if the earth actually wants you to get your hands on that money to make a difference with it and is putting the people who know about money and how to make it in front of you to help you be supported to live your life purpose, to carry your voice further?
For the record every time I have ever sat connected in nature with mother earth, and the sacred feminine, she has never tapped me disapprovingly on the shoulder and said "go quit your life purpose because making money is wrong and i disapprove." But every time I've sat on the earth, I feel I am totally held and supported and will always be provided for, I feel the desire to love myself, to learn to receive love and support so that i know love, so that i can give more love and be helped by more people. And I remember one's ability to help a whole bunch of people is seriously diminished if one's broke ass lays dying in a gutter, so one needs to get one's hands on more resources and empower oneself to be a custodian of one's own destiny in harmony with this planet, in collaboration with one's brothers and sisters, as equals. What does that mean? No more 100K per year of charity given before charging a cent to support oneself. But charge, and charge well, so that one can fill up ones cup and ones plate, and that of a friend or family member too if one so chooses. There is nothing wrong with living a life you love, while being of service.
Plus, I could list for you 20 plus people in the next minute if you asked me who are millionaires and the most loving kind hearted generous people I have ever met. The living proof that If you're heart and soul connected, and give without expectation and condition, money allows you to be of service on a grander scale, totally in integrity, no scam, no b.s. sales and manipulation. Just feeling where you have a soul contract to work together and honouring it.
I am not good enough at what I do to justify charging more/my stuff is not high quality enough to justify me charging more.
Not true. With an entire lifetime of experience plus training, you know plenty. It's just that you possibly weren't taught to appraise how much you really know growing up. Or maybe someone at some point was threatened by how much you knew and had an investment in leading you to believe you don't know that much so that they could still feel all knowing and in charge and build their self worth on that. Maybe even their business too. This is sadly, a sad part of our cultural history on many fronts, throughout many points in time and space and has been particularly true for women....because at one point in tribal history, no woman wanted to be booted out of the tribe and into the mud by the alpha, our even at the other extreme, out of court, in favour of her adult daughter. It's also Western competition culture and lack mentality all over. If they realise how good they really are, I'm fucked, therefore I just won't tell them. All so "old paradigm!" Could it be time to take a look at what your financial set-point for receiving is for your work, feel into what you want to raise the bar to, and ask what does the version of me who's making that do, say and feel differently differently to make it so?
And my final one for the day-
In my own hierarchy of deservingness of money, I'm last in line.
I worked this one out intuitively coaching a friend one day on why he could never win the lottery. I asked him to picture a line for a soup kitchen in front of him. Picture I guy in a suit, a mum in old torn clothes with two young children, an elderly woman with a walker, a 17 yo girl who may or may not be on methadone now in recovery from drug addiction, a well dressed middle class looking couple, the monopoly guy and you. I then asked them to described to me who is most deserving of eating first. You can probably guess who was put ahead of himself and after himself, right? I then pointed out, this my friend, is why you have not won the lottery. Every one of these people exists in real life having bought a ticket alongside you, and as you just told me, several deserve to come before you in meeting their basic needs, therefore, how can you ever win, if you never come first?
It is the same with money in life. If we don't think we're deserving of or entitled to have money first for those we love and for us and all we want to achieve in life, above and beyond our survival needs compared to them, how can more money come to us? When somewhere in the system, we actually rejected it in favour of sending it to someone else in greater need? There is no lack of wealth or material abundance on this planet. There is enough to go around for all of us, our loved ones and more than enough to support the achievement of our vision and mission of helping more people AND living a life we love. The more we trust, the more we give thanks for all that we have, the more we live, the more we give, the more comes in to be given. because money loves to flow to those who give it a purpose and fully claim and own that purpose.
So, this full moon, while you replace the money block construction crew with the post demolition road clean up crew, remember too, in what ways can you be grateful for all that you already have? Plus exactly what purpose/s will you be fully claiming more abundance and resources for on your journey of service and living a life you love going forward? Go write it down now, or share it here, before you have a chance to forget :-)
Until next time, have fun, take care.
