The Secret About Money That Will Change Your Life


The Secret About Money That Will Change Your Life
Change your relationship with money by understanding the real role that it plays in your life.

On the way home from power yoga, there was a man with a sign, asking for monetary help. Whenever I see someone asking for money, I always give. The giving is not out of sympathy or feeling sorry for the person. I see everyone equally powerful and entitled to  their own individual expression.  If I come across someone seeking help, that means that that experience is in my consciousness; therefore, it is my creation. Anyway, I always give $1 to $5. 

When I reached into my purse to get some money for this young man, it quickly became apparent that I only had a $20.00 bill. That seemed like a lot to give, but  I couldn't imagine driving away and not giving something – it was $20 or nothing. I gave the $20.00. It was a clean gift. I let go and I gave – no expectation, no judgment, no rationalizng that it will come back.  Just clean and clear.

As I drove away, I felt quite good about the giving, but I thought about my initial hesitation.  Why was it so hard to give $20?  It's so easy for me to give of my time and energy, so why was this challenging? When I give of my time and energy, it is a way in which I express love – so it just flows.  Suddenly, it occured to me.  I didn't assoicate money with love.  I didn't think of money as an expression of love and appreciation.  It was more of a means to an end. I want or need something so I give  money in exchange for it.  It was clinical and mechanical.  In that moment, I  got it!

I realized that the highest and most Divine purpose of money is to express love, gratitude and appreciation. This man was asking for help, and I felt inspired to help, but what was really happening was that he was telling me how to love him and I showed my love by giving what he needed. He needed love via money and I gave it.  That's why it felt so great.  When you are homeless and hungry, twenty dollars worth of love is a lot more meaninful and powerful than $1.00.

I started thinking about everything in my life that I pay for – from my home to the food I feed my kids. I love my kids and I love my home and when I pay money to house and feed, I am really expressing love. I am Paying Attention with love in the form of money. That is the only thing that is really happening.  Money is simply a means of expressing love.  From this moment on, every opportunity that I have to give money or pay with money, will be intentionally Laced and Graced with unconditional love, gratitude and appreciation. 

Here, I thought I was the one giving, but I received a great deal more than I gave. As it always is
