Your Money Is Your Energy Of Life
In this episode of Live In the Present Ed and I are looking at the value of money. Is it a dirty filthy thing that corrupts all that touch it, a force for good, or just simply energy? Perhaps, just like beauty the value of money is in the eye of the beholder.
Why do you go to work? Do you jump out of bed shouting ‘hooray’? If not, why not? A few people will be doing what they do each day because they simply love it and would carry on doing it whatever happened. Sadly many people will be going to work simply for the money and hating everyday of their life.
What are you doing?
Ask yourself this simple question if you did not need to earn the money, perhaps you had won the lotto, would you still do what you do, would you still go into work?
Maybe, if you were very conscientious and had a very responsible job or, if you felt that people relied upon things that you had to do, then maybe you would feel the need to go into work to tie up those lose ends. But would that be it, would you then do a runner and do something else with your life?
What is the relationship between your life and your work?
Do you work for money or happiness?
Most people would 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 many examples where money has created great unhappiness. Yet, when we understand the true nature of money it can make us happier.
You see, money does not actually exist, it is not tangible stuff. On a British bank note it states “I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of X”. Now, this is a nonsense. If you took you £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 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 only potential energy.
There is both good energy and bad energy
Money works at a much deeper level than simply bits of paper. Your twenty-pound note is like a seed full of energy that, if planted in one way 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 nor 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.
Money is the energy of life
If you are a giver, money will allow you to give more. If you are a hoarder money will allow you to hoard more. If you are a happy person money will allow you to be more happy. If you are an unhappy person money will allow you to be more unhappy.
The common word is ‘more’
All that money allows you to do or be is ‘more’ of what you already are. Because money is just energy, and when you use it you are expressing your life energy.
Be happy, live in the present and allow your self to positively create your financial wealth and in doing so, you will also find your financial health.
