Money is just energy, just like everything else. It has no value at all, except for the value that you give it. A $1 bill is no more valuable than a $1000 bill? Both contain the same exact subatomic particles. They're exactly the same energy, except in your own mind. It's the label or the definition that you choose, that has the power to bring up certain emotions.
We add resistance by labeling things. Labels are judgements. By saying that something is more valuable, more important or better than, we have labeled it. This applies to everything in our lives.
It's unfortunate, but we seem to have this money concept somewhat confused. Go back to the very beginning. Everything is energy and energy flows. There is no-thing that is not energy. What goes out must be returned with a like (exact) vibration and frequency. It's a constant flow and this is why we have to completely understand the Law of Attraction. The energy of money is all around, but you must attract it to you.
This is where you really have to FEEL your beliefs around money. After years and years of working on myself I realized that I could not say "I love money" without a tiny bit of uneasiness. When I really payed close attention, I could honestly FEEL it. I guess that somewhere deep inside, there is still a belief that wanting money is a "bad" thing in some way.
Another thing that many don't think about, is that as we spend money, which is just energy, it's returned to us immediately. It may not be in the form of dollar bills, but it is returned. We are much more abundant than we believe. For example, when you pay a utility bill, it's returned to you immediately as the electric current that runs through your house or the clean water that comes out of your faucets. When you go to the grocery store it is returned to you again. It's food, nutrients, something to curb those hunger pains. Instead of showing gratitude for the exchange, many can only see it as money disappearing.
It's really not about the actual dollar bills at all. It's about the feeling that it brings, such as relief, freedom and appreciation. That's where the focus should be. The Universe will deliver in mysterious ways, but when you set expectations such as a specific amount or receiving it in a certain way, then that's control. This is why we have to let go of expectations.
Your subconscious mind was designed to protect you. When you're in fear, doubt and desperation, your subconscious mind will do everything that it can to save you from the "enemy". Your mind will begin to push the enemy away, by filtering out the possibilities that will allow it to come into your existence. It's unfortunate, but many of us treat money as an enemy because of what we were taught. We were never taught to love money.
The other day, in a doctor's office, someone said, "Money is the root of all evil". Deep inside I really wanted to scream, "Don't you realize that's total crap?", but I didn't. Unfortunately this is what we were taught. We were also taught to fear that it will run out, that it's hard to get, that there's never enough and to complain about paying our bills. When you complain about anything you're making yourself a victim.
There are so many people who are self-sabotaging themselves with their beliefs about money. They believe that they need to protect it. They blame their problems on it. They believe that a job is their only source of income and they need to work really hard to get it. They believe that it will buy their happiness. It's victim mentality.
I'm not an authority on the Bible and I admit it. Where did people get the idea that struggling is more deserving? Where did so many people learn that a mediocre life is OK and we should just accept it? That doesn't even make sense. In fact, I was listening to someone channel the other night. This Ascended Master said that if you're going to settle for just a mediocre life, then you might as well not even be here.
Many people believe that money isn't spiritual, but let me ask you this. Why should someone go to work every day to a job that isn't fulfilling? When someone earns money doing something that they dislike, is that even empowering? Some dislike their jobs so much that they send nothing but negative vibrations out into the collective consciousness all day long. Yet they believe that they should get paid for that. Misery does not attract anything but more misery.
"Abundance was your God given right, the moment that spirit gave you identity". ~ St. Germain ~
On the other hand, spiritual people are trying to raise the consciousness of the planet with their teaching and with they're knowledge. They love their "job" and most have no expectations of getting anything in return. They usually give and share. Yet, many believe that spiritual people should do it for free.
We have to understand that abundance of any kind is just energy that flows with little effort. It flows out and makes room for more (of the same vibration) to flow back in. It's really that simple, yet we make everything so hard.
Recently the subject of vows and agreements kept coming up. I used muscle testing to check for myself and sure enough, I took a vow of poverty in a previous life and it was still in my subconscious mind. That could explain a lot.
Ascension, the reason that we need to understand all of this.
