Most people say that they want money and that it will make them happy, however they do not really understand what money is. Often people see money as the route to their fulfilment, they are generally wrong. There are millions of examples were money has created great unhappiness. Despite this, when we understand the true nature of money it can make us happier.
Here’s the interesting thing about money: it does not actually exist. A British bank note includes the words ‘I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of £X‘. Now, this is a nonsense. If you took your £20 note to the Bank of England and asked for your twenty pounds they would look at you like you were mad. A bank note is a token of good faith. At best it is a share certificate that entitles you to a share in the reserves of the banking system. In the current bank-led recession it is easy to assume that this share is not worth very much, if anything at all. A bank note is really potential energy.
There is both good energy and bad energy
Money works at a much deeper level than simply bits of paper changing hands. Your twenty pound note is like a seed full of energy, that if planted in a certain way it will grow and bear the fruit of other £20 notes. If planted on barren soil, or frittered away, it becomes nothing.
There is both good money and bad money
There is a relationship between money and emotion but it is the reverse of what we expect it to be. Just as there are positive emotions of happiness and wellbeing there are also negative emotions of sadness and negativity. In the same way there is positive money and negative money. That is money that makes us feel good and money that makes us feel bad.
Money is a magnifying glass
Money tends to make things bigger just like a magnifying glass. When we are feeling happy we will use money to create more happiness. But, if we are unhappy, we will use money to create more unhappiness. This is simply the nature of energy so that…
Your money flows where your consciousness goes
You see money, like all forms of energy, is neutral, it is neither good or bad. All energy does, is enable us to act out what we are feeling.
The person who is happy with money is the person who is also happy without money. The feeling comes before the money.
However it is important to realise that if you want to create money, it is easier to do so if you are feeling positive. It is happiness that makes it easier to create money, not money that creates happiness. But, that is the subject of the next blog…
Be happy, live in the present and allow your positivity to create your financial wealth.
