Money has such a bad press sometimes; openly saying you want it, you want the lifestyle makes you sound crass, unsensitive, selfish, without morals and yet … we need money to live, we need money to have a choice about the lifestyle we want, we need money to access resources.
Having money or at least the opportunity to earn it does make us happier in that sense. So I do declare that I would like money or better phrased I welcome abundance in my life. Because, as the saying goes, money does not make us happy but we are much happier if the mortgage is paid and we have enough food to it.
The key issue is how do we make money and how do we interact with it.
First of all, it really helps to openly welcome it in our lives; if we think money is bad or evil we are sending signals that we do not want it so it might come and go as quickly as it arrives because we are actually screaming “I need you but I do not want you“. I used to have a very uneasy relationship with money; I felt wanting it was a bad thing, it made me a selfish person. Recently I have changed my perspective. I want money so I am able to have choices on how I want to live and how much I can help other people. So I affirm without shame I welcome money and abundance into my life.
Secondly, how am I going to make money? What kind of a job do I want? Is there a hobby I am passionate about I could turn into a job? Do I prefer working for myself or do I need the safety or working for another person? Do I want a traditional trade, regular hours or am I happy living day to day with whatever might come?
These are personal questions that only we can answer. I have done both, I have worked for companies with the safety net and also the restrain and I have been self employed working the hours I wanted to work, being my own boss but never quite knowing what was happening next. It is your life, if you have those choices make a conscious choice. Take time out, pause and think about what suits you. If you are able to have a job that you love as opposed to have one that just pays the bills go for it. Surely it is better to feel energised doing something you love that just plod on. Sometimes we just need to be brave and believe in ourselves.
So affirm: I welcome money and abundace into my life, I deserve money and abundance; I know how to hold onto money and abundance in my life; Today I decide to make a conscious choice about how to let abundance into my life.
