Money As An Expression of Love
Abundance is one of the frequencies of love and comes to us in many forms. In order to fully appreciate the experience of abundance, it is necessary to be open to receive. Money is one of the expressions of abundance. However, for many the connection to money is often fraught with challenges.
Money is an energy translated into material form. The following questions potentially provide for a beginning exploration of your relationship with money. Take note of what comes to mind. How would you describe your relationship with money? What kind of a partner is it – supportive, tends to abandon you, unreliable, always comes through, gives you whatever you want, never enough, trustworthy or…… ?
To have a sense of your relationship with money will assist you with being able to discover your beliefs around currency which will be reflective of your personal sense of value, being enough, and lovability. Do you believe that money comes to you easily or do you have to work hard for it? In turn, does this create judgments and limitations about how it comes to you? If you are wanting money and someone gives or gifts it to you, are you able to open to receive it, or is there guilt about not deserving it because you didn’t work for it? If you have only a few select approved paths that it can come to you (for example working hard or being deserving of it), then it provides resistance for it to appear easily, even though that may be what you actually desire. If it does come easily, but you feel you didn’t earn it, do you feel the need to give it away to worthy causes, still leaving you with not enough? How valuable or worth-y are you?
The exploration may eventually bring you to the place of knowing that you need to expand your space of receptivity. One of the ways to do this is to consciously nurture and enhance the relationship of self to Self/ core essence to All. It is in this loving supportive space that it is easiest to open to receive, for there is a knowing that you are loved, loving and valuable in every moment. New beliefs, that are much more in line with your desirings, can be forged. The transition period to do this takes practice and consistency. It may be useful to take a look at the article How to Achieve Lasting Spiritual Change (Part 1) (Your Physiology & The Law of Attraction) from February 7 on
Are You Open To Receive?
Are you open to abundance however it may come to you, or is there a judgment about how it may appear?
When you desire something, collaborative forces begin to find all possible routes to provide the steps or elements necessary for the creation of that upon which you are focused. The more you are congruent with s(S)elf, the more options for pathways to your desiring that are possible. In this state, you find that inspirations and ideas flow easily as to what your next step may be. Wonderful synchronicities consistently appear to reveal possible directions of creation. What you want actually begins to show up.
If you start to doubt that you can have what you want, due to any limiting beliefs, then you begin to disregard the connection to Self, which is always expansive. This begins to close the doors of possibility as you move into a more resistant frequency. Your creative energetic team will continue to find pathways, although, it becomes more limited and takes more time, the more the doubt settles in. They will do their best to find whatever door may be open to deliver whatever possibility is resonant with where you are. These may be the times where the next step looks less than desirous, and yet provides what you need.
If there is a belief that you need to earn what you get and that you have to work hard for it, then you’ll mistrust and resist it if it comes to you easily. This concept can apply to anything that may be related to abundance including love, support, or finances. How open are you to receive, and how easily do you receive? On a simplistic level, are you able to fully appreciate a compliment? How do you feel when someone gives you a gift, or does something thoughtful for you, just because? The questions provide some opportunities to begin to explore your relationship with abundance.
It is absolutely possible to practice and foster the knowing that you can certainly have whatever it is you desire. The easiest way to accomplish this is to consciously focus on becoming attuned to your higher Self/core essence. This can be done by allowing all that is interesting, curious, good and/or loving. Your Self always loves, supports and is connected to you, and your Self is connected to All. When your self is congruent with your Self, then you are in the frequency of possibilities becoming actualities. In this space of attunement you expect, and then experience, that which you desire without limitation, just because you are you.
Trust Your Love, Question Your Doubt
There tends to be a mistrust of all that is good, enjoyable, loving and happy. It is common to say things, such as, ‘enjoy it while it lasts,’ implying that whatever is good is fleeting. When things are going well, with the promise of even better, and doubt starts to creep in you begin to question the situation. Can I really trust this? Are they for real? They’re being too nice, they must want something? The implication is that ‘it’s too good to be true,’ which of course, suggests that good things are not to be trusted. The key to remember is that you’ll always find for what you are looking.
There is often more value placed on what is painful or negative than on what is loving. A person can be incredibly loving and supportive for as long as you’ve known them, however, if they lie to you once, then they are never to be trusted again. They must gain your trust by proving their love. There is often a thinking that the person has shown their ‘true colours.’ The focus becomes on the other having to change their behaviour in some way in order to make you feel safe, vindicated, or supported.
The question to consider is why did the doubt begin to creep in, in the first place? The tendency is to think that it means some big truth is going to be revealed about the situation or relationship. What it does indicate is that there is a limiting belief around your sense of love which has resulted in having the unpleasant experience that you did. The more awareness that you gain around this, then the more so there is a possibility to change your beliefs and, in turn, the experiences that you have. The person may have done what they did, however, the bigger question is why did you have that particular experience with them. Upon exploration, you’ll eventually find that it is due to a belief that involves a limitation about how much love you’re willing to receive. It may come across in the form of, “you can’t count on anyone but yourself,” or “people always disappoint,” or whatever statements reflect your lack of value, worth and lovability relative to your self in that situation.
It would be useful to see your self as your Higher Self/ core essence sees you in order to expand your space of receiving what is good, loving, interesting, curious and joyful. Your Self is always loving, supportive, and encouraging. You are always connected to your Self, however, your self always has the freedom to choose to be congruent with this aspect of Self or not. The less you are attuned to Self, which is connected to All, then the more you experience struggle, pain and unpleasantness. The more you are attuned to Self, then the more you experience joy, love, and your heart’s desirings.
