Money. We either love it or hate it but we all need it.
Each of us has a story about money: It doesn’t grow on trees, it’s the cause of all evil, it can’t buy you love. Some say you have to work hard for the money, there’s not enough of it, hold onto it when you get it. And then there are those who believe, money makes the world go around.
No matter what your current money story is, you can change it.
Think about money as a person that you are in a relationship with. What’s it like? How is money treating you? How are you treating money? Would you consider it a good relationship, balanced and supportive, or an abusive relationship, always asking and not getting?
My relationship with money was abusive. There was no other way to describe it. I was allowing money to treat me in a way that I would never let any human being treat me. There was no reason for me to tolerate it anymore. So, what did I do? I wrote a letter.
"Once again, I come home and you are not here! I can’t take it anymore! I won’t take it anymore.
For years, I’ve allowed you to come and go as you please, leaving me for days, weeks, MONTHS not knowing when you would comeback. Never being able to count on you from one day to the next. Well now I’m done
I realize that none of this is your fault. I take full responsibility for this relationship. The past, the present and the future. I am drawing a line in the sand and at this moment there are going to be some changes made.
No longer will I feel that I don’t deserve to have as much of you as I want.
No longer will I feel that you are the source of evil or that if I have you someone else will not.
As of this moment, I will respect you and know where you are at all times.
I will use you to create good in the world.
I will not hoard you but will keep you in the flow.
I will use you to support myself and others.
I will invest in our future.
I will do what is necessary to keep you attracted to me.
I will see you everywhere.
I will create a space for you and as you grow, so will that space.
I will greatly receive the gifts and joy that you bring.
I am prepared to do the work to keep you moving and to keep me and mine happy.
You are abundant and together we will greatly impact our world."
We are doing much better now.
