We are continuing with five things differently most spiritual people did to achieve wealth and we left off going into the third thing:
The third thing is create a new frame of reference around the money. Create a new frame of reference around the money. What if you created this new meaning that money represents a contribution that you make? The difference that you make on the planet. Wouldn’t that be an empowering frame of reference to the money that you receive. Wouldn’t it be that the money that you had was a measuring stick of the contribution that you make.
Money is how people say thank you. Now imagine that’s a much more empowering context for money, especially for us spiritual people because we really want to maintain the attitude and a state of unattachment, feel like we’re making a difference. Well, what if we began to relate to money like it was a thank you.
Money is energy. Now, I just want you to think about this. What does money really represent? It’s just a thought that we’re all holding in mind and we’re all keeping it because money represents this particular thing. But what is that? It’s just energy. So what if you started to relate to it in that way.
Money is what you use to buy experiences. Now, it’s just critical that you begin to look at money in a new way. Where did you learn that money was what it was? Remember that, as a spiritual person, it’s important to just continue to re-examine your thinking and re-examine where did you believe that? Where did you learn that, and why can’t you create a new meaning that works for you? That feels good to you? So we have five tips.
The fourth one is to re-examine the idea that money is evil or money is bad. I want you to notice where your generalizations came from. Start to notice that you believe things about money because the people in your life have conditioned you to believe them. Or because of the perceptions that have been created over time. Remember that you are a generalizer. We all are. So, something happened around money and then you begin to connect the dots, right? You walk over, you pet a dog, the dog bites you. Next time you see a dog you think all dogs bite. Well guess what? All dogs don’t bite. All money is not bad or evil. In fact, money really is a powerful way of making positive and very important changes on this planet. And I’m sure that you’re committed to having that occur.
Tip Number Five for spiritual people. You’ve got to figure out for you what is important to you about money. All right, what do you want? What is it that you think money is going to give you? Is it going to give you more joy? Is it going to give you the experiences that will make you happy? Is it going to give you experiences and quality of life that will make you feel whole and complete and satisfied? Do you think that when you have money you can experience, blah, blah, blah. Well, whatever that blah, blah, blah is, I request that you just have that now. You look and see where are you already experiencing that? Where do you already have that kind of experience? Honor it. Acknowledge it. Appreciate that you’re having that now. And when you do, watch what happens, everything starts to work in your favor. You start to live in the mystical and magical place. That place where you just go ahhh, what an awesome life I have.
Start to recognize that what you think money will give you is already present in your life now, you’ll have less attachment to getting the money and more money will come to you naturally. See money won’t buy you the experiences that you’re looking for. The experiences that you’re looking for are here now–gratitude, appreciation, acknowledgement. These are tools that the spiritual person utilizes to bring more money to themselves.
