Are you choking the abundance? What kind of language do you use when referring to money? As Don Miguel Ruiz says, “Be impeccable with your word.” What we speak has power. We have an emotional reaction to a thought, which is even stronger when it is spoken, and then we behave accordingly. So, be wary of the next time you say things like, “I’m so broke” or “I’ll never get to travel to St. Croix.” You are putting spirit on notice that you are willing to accept a lack of abundance.
Our relationship with money is an old one and is influenced by stuff from our childhood. Like the saying, “How you do anything is how you do everything,” think about how you treat your relationship with money, and you may find that treatment elsewhere in your life. This requires real honesty with yourself.
If money is a problem in your life, is it because you feel you’re not worthy enough to have money, or that you believe that money is not spiritual, or do you have a poverty mentality? Consider the attitudes you inherited about money. Do they resonate with who you truly are?
So, in summary:
Look to fulfill your spiritual contracts with those who need and want your services.
Pay attention to your relationship with money — both past messages about it, and how it plays out in your life.
How might you be choking off abundance?
Look at money simply as energy.
Ask yourself: Where does my poverty mentality show up? How do I speak about money? Am I living with integrity in the ways I work with money?
And when you can, tip the waitress a little extra. You’ll feel great.
