Money is just energy, like everything else. It has no value, except for the value that you give it. Unfortunately, your attachment to money, has the power to make you happy or sad, upset, angry or depressed. Yet, we have to realize that a $1 bill is no more valuable than a $1000 bill? Both have the same protons, neutrons and subatomic particles. They're exactly the same except in your mind. It's the label that you put on them.
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. Neediness and desperation add even more resistance. This is what everyone has to understand. This applies to everything in our lives.
It's unfortunate, but we seem to have this money or abundance concept somewhat confused. We don't realize that as we spend money (energy) it's returned to us immediately. It may not be in the form of dollar bills, but it is still returned. We are completely abundant, yet we don't even realize it. For example, when you pay your electric bill, it's returned to you immediately with the electrical current that runs through your entire house. It enables you to turn on your lights, to run your air conditioning or your heat. When you go to the grocery store it is returned to you again. It's food, nutrients, something to curb those hunger pains. As you show gratitude, rather than fear, it is returned in even better ways, but many don't consider that.
When you are led to a great sale on something that you need, that's not just luck. The Universe led you to it.
We are all abundant in all of the vibrations that we send out. Even when we begin to worry, then we are abundant in worry.
The thing is that none of this is really about money at all. It's all just energy and vibration. Your subconscious mind was designed to protect you. When you're in fear, doubt and desperation, your subconscious mind will kick in and do everything that it can to protect you from the "enemy". It will begin to push that enemy away. It's unfortunate, but many of us treat money as an enemy. We were never taught to love money. We were mostly taught to fear that it will run out, to fear not having enough and to complain about paying our bills.
Do you realize that saving is technically hoarding? Think about that. I'm not telling you to take all of your savings out of the bank, but why are you saving it? That's the question that you should ask. Everything that you do should be out of love, not fear. Save your money because you love it, not because you fear losing it.
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 their jobs are their only source of income and they have to work really hard to get it. They believe that it will buy their happiness. People are just plain scared and it's really a shame. It's victim mentality.
I'm not an authority on the Bible and I'm the first to 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. We came here to experience, enjoy life and do what we love.
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? Complain all day long, moan and groan, sending nothing but negative vibrations out into the collective consciousness. 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 ~
Spiritual people on the other hand are trying to raise the consciousness of the planet with their teaching and with they're knowledge, which they don't come by easily. They love their life and they love their "job". They send love and joy out into the collective consciousness. People who are spiritual usually give and share. Yet, many believe that spiritual people shouldn't get paid.
In A Course In Miracles, Jesus says that "everything is backwards and upside down." I completely understand that statement, especially around money.
We all 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 that simple.
Abundance is energy and you are surrounded by energy in every moment. What type of energy are you allowing?
Recently the subject of old vows and agreements kept coming up for me, repeatedly. I used muscle testing to check. 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...soon.
