Money Madness

Most people (individualized awareness projecting as human form) create a substantial amount of stress and worry around the subject of money. Monetary abundance is commonly thought to create joy, while a lack of money is commonly thought to produce pain.

In reality, everything is a form of energy, having no value except that which the perceiver assigns to it -and money is no exception. Because most people operate under a false sense of identity, the mind creates many problems, and people believe (a) that their problems are real and (b) that many of their problems can be solved by money – either by getting more for their self, by taking money away from someone thought to have ‘too much’, by giving money to those thought to have ‘not enough’, or by abolishing the use of money all together.

While it benefits everyone to be realistic about how money is used in this illusion, true financial freedom is created by the one who remembers to remember that money (like all things) is a manifestation of thought energy, and to the extent anyone attaches their feelings to money, they experience struggle around the subject.

From the hippy to the senator, unless they are an enlightened master, in mental infancy, or a recluse, all people hold some ideal about money, and there’s nothing wrong about that. The key is in recognizing that one’s present relationship with money is a response to all thought-based feelings they have previously projected about money.

For example, every time someone thinks they can’t afford something, they activate the feeling of ‘not enough’. Unless that feeling is observed, the egoic mind represses, denies or minimizes it while incessantly searching for ways to manipulate more money in the delusion that it will make them feel like they have ‘enough’.

Another example is the one who believes money is a tool of ‘evil’ and/or that an economic collapse is imminent -so they bear with the feeling of not presently having enough money to create personal freedom and joy, while waiting for a future where everything will go in their favor.

This one too is projecting for ‘not enough’, but this one is also projecting for more manifestations of what they consider to be the ‘evil’ use of money. Even if the economic system did collapse, they would still be left with the spiritual poverty they have created in thought.

Conversely, when money is a non-issue, one can be free to express creativity, and ‘enough’ of everything comes in response to creative expression.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that one’s creative expression directly results in monetary manifestations, but with money not being equated with feelings, one can attract money through unlimited channels as a means for them to experience more of the joy they have already projected through creative expression.

In order to activate creativity and allow it to inform action, one must first accept and respect that thought has made money an important form of energetic exchange between people. From the foundation of acceptance and respect, one can begin to observe their personal thoughts about money, and what feelings those thoughts evoke.

Through relaxed observation and acceptance of whatever one thinks/feels, the creative force of awareness shifts one’s relationship with money until money is no longer thought to be a source of anything – and it will be so.

Because this is much easier said than done, it’s very helpful to have support from someone who has experience in this regard. For this reason, I offer counseling/coaching/channeling sessions to guide interested people along their path.

    Thank you for putting this information out there. I clearly stumbled upon it and was so very glad I did.
    It seems my relationship with money has always been in the negative. I have always leaned to the creative side and spent much energy feeling guilty about it. It’s a sickness to be in that frame of mind. Fortunately I do not feel that way anymore living quite freely now in a energized flow of creative expression.
    However, I have still further to go as my work does not sell much. Am I blocking that from happening? I’m not sure what I am doing or not doing in answer to that question….
    You always hear do what you love and the money will come.
    As you can see by my web link…I spend much time in the creative sense. But maybe I’m missing something.
    Any suggestions?
    Thank You,

      Aloha Brenda, and Mahalos for your comments and question!

      Creative work is an expression of Love, and abundance (the perception of having ‘enough’ and being ‘enough’) is experienced according to the extent to which Love has been allowed as one’s response to all that they perceive. It’s true that Love is the source of all abundance, but most people gauge their creative ‘success’ based on how much money is generated through their work.

      The expectation that creative expression ‘should’ be the source of monetary income (or anything else) is attachment, which is based in fear. To the extent fear-based thoughts occupy one’s awareness, love is not allowed to be their expression, and struggle is created around the subject being focused upon – in this case abundance.

      I recommend working with someone who can help you identify which beliefs are preventing you from being a consistent expression of the Love that you are. If you are inspired to work with me in this regard, I would be delighted to channel your guidance toward creating a new mindset around the subjects of money and abundance. My current rate is $75.00 for a 45 minute telephone session or $265.00 for four 45 minute sessions. Each session includes a written summary of what was covered in the session and ‘homework’ recommendations.
