I haven’t talked much about finances, which is weird because we talk about everything else.
So, let’s talk about it and our relationship with money.
“Some people say money is just a tool, but it’s so much more than that! It’s an energy!”
The BIG Lesson Money Taught Me
When I first started my business I overspent on education and learning. I literally spent nearly $100k ‘trying to get’ this entrepreneur thing down! And now that I know more about my relationship with money, I realize I was using money to hide.
It was a way that I could say I was a business owner, but not have to show up and show my art.
I AM glad I invested in learning, I only wish I would have shown up and taken action sooner.
I was buying useless sh*t to avoid the greater life I SO desired and AVOIDED having! Gotta love that!
IT TOOK A LOT OF ups & downs to really learn how to play and create with money. But I really started to pay attention to money after my husband, Joe, trapped me against the bathroom door and made me make a choice to pay attention to money and create more wealth!
2018 has really become about recognizing the importance of what really matters. For me that’s vulnerability and intimacy with my life. Yup, it’s about getting really REAL and RAW with all things.
Recognizing and acknowledging sounds simple, but how often do you do it? Especially when money isn’t going great.
The Money Intimacy Practice
These days I sit down each month and go through every little charge, purchase AND purchases made. I add a touch of love and gratitude for everything I chose to purchase and what I’ve sold in the month, down to the $4 latte and the $37 Retreat purchase.
This practice lets me know what to choose and what not to choose next.
Other Money Intimacy Practices In Growing Wealth
1. Set 10% of your income aside and place it in an account that uses it to create more. (i.e. dividends or interest)
+ Energetic AND do this every month on a certain date. A date when you can consciously move it and ask it to expand.
2. Invest in yourself.
+ This means invest in bettering yourself, your life, your education, your passion etc.
3. Ask your money.
+ Now that you are being with money instead of using it! I invite to ASK the money! What if money is a part of consciousness and money has your back. What if you were to ask, if I choose this will it expand my life? Or If I buy this will it create more money?
Clearing Those *Stupid* Hang Ups Around Money
1. Sometimes we feel that we HAVE TO buy things to prove status or make ourselves feel better
— I get it, I’ve been there.
+ WHAT IF you only CHOSE purchases and invested in things that would create more for you? Will you eliminate anything that doesn’t?
Wouldn’t you rather have financial security & a thriving business than a $650 pair of shoes that hurt your feet? Of course, there are times when those purchases will contribute to creating more — you’ll know when this is true.
2. Sometimes we feel we CAN’T do what we desire because of money available.
+ WHAT IF having FUN helped you create a better life and make more money? Can you eliminate what doesn’t?
