(landing in Future Self)
I am where I have mastered the art of money
It’s dropped back to equal importance
With many other things in my life
Money no longer requires a lot of energy
There were some years when I was working on it and it required more energy
(What is the purpose of money?)
It’s truest purpose is a form of energy that has the most flexibility
You can use money in transformation much more easily than some other forms
Barter has its place trading something for something
When those two things match, what’s wanted for what’s offered
Then you have a very simple exchange
Money allows for many more options
You can take money and turn it into thousands of things rather than just a few things
Having this mastery, what does it bring you?
At the most basic level it gives me the ability to move past it
I can feel my root chakra as a foundation & realize that I have healed foundational issues,
And because I’ve mastered these issues I can move to the next level
Many people who are of spiritual focus
Often times try to skip that foundation
There were years in my life where I did that
But there was always an underlying anxiety about survival
Even if it was low-level and my experience was high vibration
There was always this low hum of body needs, basic needs that I often neglected
Here I have no illusion of money being a guarantee of safety, but I have a different awareness.
A deep understanding that I will be taken care of
regardless of the situation.
I can really only take care of my needs…….first (tears breaking open)
I finally understand that
I am my best parent
I recognize I am not the source of what I need
But I am the one who attends to my needs
How does that bless those closest to me in my world?
They get to be served by someone who is complete,
Which changes everything.
It’s very different than serving the ego’s needs
it’s serving the deepest needs.
I love myself SO much that I pay attention
and I attend to the deepest needs now
I don’t put them off.
I appear to those I love as a full person.
Sometimes that can be unsettling to them
but at some level deeply appreciated
and inspiring and gives them permission to do the same.
With money I have the feeling
“Of course I get paid”
I get compensated for all that I give
I own that need w/o projecting onto someone else.
Paying me may bring up issues in them
and I am completely at peace w/that.
I do my work and receive compensation freely
without tension and without projection
and that is a gift – to me and to them.
I feel vertical and very aligned
I am grounded
I am open
I am love
I receive money lovingly
I give money lovingly
Ah, that’s the key!
Others get the experience of this open and loving place
whether they get it mentally or not.
They’ve seen me receiving them
I thank them with great sincerity
I bless them in whatever way it happens at that moment.
This also gives them the opportunity to trust
It gives them the opportunity to let go.
I am trustable.
They’ve given me money and trust me to transform it.
I take that energy and apply my gifts to it
and transform it on their behalf.
I am very conscious of what I do with it
I take care of my basic needs first so that I can give from a full place
and then I open that energy to transformation through others.
The past challenges have given me the gift of knowing that paying attention is a more loving choice than avoiding.
In an exchange, we both get to see the truth that “lack” is ridiculous.
The truth is, it’s all energy moving
from one place to another.
It can move fast
It can move slow
It can cool off
It can seem to disappear all together
And, it’s always there
Image: A dam where I’m sitting in a dry lake bed (damn those dams!)
I’m holding the irrigation doors that are keeping the water from coming in
I’m the one holding them
I was the one that was not allowing anything to come in
it was all me.
How silly of me!
Let the water in
it’s so much easier this way
The water, the flow feels natural
It feels like the way things are designed
and what I realize is
I don’t have to make that happen
I only need to allow it
and there are simple ways to allow it
For example letting people pay for something right after it’s done
I don’t need to create a gap
When work is done, the money is exchanged and it keeps moving
you don’t eat at a restaurant and not pay when you are finished
I’ve been making it way more work than is needed
In some cases it’s like I created the system for it to be more work
It actually works much better for the medium that I’m in
The internet is an immediate medium things move fast there
This also helps me to understand that when I purchase something
I pay for it at that moment
and if I can’t pay for it at the moment
I don’t purchase it
What I find in doing that
is I open to the abundance in the moment
when I have a need I’m aware of that need
and wait for the full abundance to fulfill that need
This feels so nourishing
It’s cash FLOW
It’s the truest flow
It’s the current of life energy.
