Many of us grew up being indoctrinated with the “truths” about money, such as: 

-Money is hard to come by. 

-Rich people are bad or greedy. 

-Nothing good comes from money. 

-I don’t deserve money. 

-I will never have any money. 

 

As we matured, our thoughts about it seemed to change. We realized we could have money if we got a job and worked hard. We got to know some “rich” people and found them to be neither selfish nor greedy. Hopefully, we updated our beliefs about money and adopted our own beliefs. But on the whole, there is still much to learn about our perspective of money. 

 

I challenge you to make room for the possibility that you can have all the money you desire and that it’s okay to want it. You are not being selfish or unrealistic to want money, think you deserve it, or that it is possible to have it. 

 

Think about this: desiring money is not being greedy because money has no intrinsic value except what you can do with it. It’s nothing more than a form of exchange - a tool for bartering. 

 

Money can be exchanged for clothes, a home, food, and other tangible things, but it can also buy you time, relaxation, and pleasure. It can improve your quality of life by removing stress. (I am thinking of all those household chores you could hire someone to do!) 

Money can help others. It’s not just the wealthy philanthropist that donates funds to worthwhile causes. Everyday people with modest incomes step forward to help others in need. Just think about the good you could do in your own community if you donated funds to a worthwhile non-profit. Think about the difference you’d make in the lives of other people. 

 

Each of us is worthy of money, not just for ourselves, but for what we can accomplish with it and how it can benefit others. Instead of thinking of money as a limited resource, what if we think of it as a vibrant, flowing energy, which is passed around from person to person to accomplish good? Having it wouldn’t be selfish or greedy because we’d use it and pass it along to others. 

 

The world would be a better place if we all adopted these perspectives about money: 

-Money is just a method of exchange. 

-Money is good. 

 

-I am worthy of money. 

-I can have the money I desire. 

-Money flows. The more it’s used, the more good it can do. 

-Money can make a positive impact in the lives of others. 

 

Start to think of money as a living entity that serves a useful purpose in society. Treat it as such and your life and the lives of those around you will change for the better. 

The purpose of money may not be what you think! I received the following guidance during my prayer/meditation time this summer.

Purpose #1 — To help us live the life we imagined! The reason is because without money it would be more difficult to manifest our dreams in this dimension. Money is not a bad thing. Remember, everything is energy, so tapping into the “money” field and attracting it to you will help one live their best life. Worrying about money causes the energy to money to deflect, keeping it further away from us.

Purpose #2 — To help us carry out our mission. It is the same with our missions. Money is a necessity to carry out most, if not all, missions in the earthly plane. Treat it wisely with love and concern and it will assist in your mission. Taunt it and focus on the lack of it and you’ll continue to get more of the same. I was reminded to think bigger. One’s mindset about the value of their offerings is key.

Purpose #3 — To teach us lessons. Your consciousness needs uplifting as do most if not all beings currently on the planet. For if they were already lifted, they would no longer be here and need to learn the lessons.

Summary — Eventually, as we grow as spiritual beings and learn the lessons, money as we know it will no longer be needed. (I was informed earlier that someday we will all learn how to manifest whatever we need or want, so the exchange of money will no longer be necessary.)

Humankind is on a mission — one to help each other lift consciousness to another level. Some know this now and are assisting. Others do not know this, yet they are assisting in their own way. By this we mean they exemplify the lessons in their daily life already without the assistance of a daily spiritual practice. Others have no clue and therefore need the help of everyone else — to serve as examples and to serve as teachers, even if it is at a peripheral level.

We all must learn so we all can advance.

Namaste. We send love and guidance. Your guides, All That Is, and the heavenly Jesus Christ.

This is not the first time my guides have discussed Money, but this time, the Purpose of Money was made clear. I hope you find this helpful.

Why do things happen

Just as they do?

Don’t you ever wonder –

What makes it true?

 

Perhaps choices made

When we were young.

Maye it’s not the outcome

For which we longed.

 

Ne’ver the reason,

This point is true.

God knew the reason

Greater than you.

 

Learn to rejoice

In the path you’re on.

For it’s the one meant

To be all along.

 

We know not our days

Scribbled in sand.

Till the day we realize

It’s all in His hands.

 

Want to experience monumental personal growth without years on the therapist’s couch? Then spend quiet time each day reflecting on your daily interactions with others in the third person.

Pretend you’re a fly on the wall or an unbiased observer. How did that recent interaction with your family member or co-worker go? If it wasn’t the way you’d like, then it’s time for a third-party observation.

  • Were your words sincere and kind or marred with sarcasm or guilt? Could there have been a better way to get your point across?
  • How were your listening skills? Did you interrupt the other person before they finished their explanation? Or did you listen intently, putting yourself in their shoes before preparing a response?
  • What could you have done differently? What words would have been better left unsaid? How could you have been more loving and understanding?

The answers to these questions will give you guidance to use in future interactions so you can build an atmosphere of trust with this person versus feelings of disgust, ambivalence or hate.

You see, the power of positive relationships is within each of us already. We just need to tap into our third person persona and observe how it all takes place.  Then, accept our shortcomings as well as the other person’s and try again next time.

This is how we learn and grow. This is how we evolve. All that’s required is our best.

This is how God designed our lives as human beings.

This is yet another example of how we are all connected.

Heavenly Father above, let me give a prayer of love.

 

For we know not

The time or place

When we’ll be called home

Finishing our race.

 

Let us be peaceful

Calm and wise.

Let us be happy

All of our lives.

 

For you have given us

Many lessons to learn:

A chance to abide

And a chance to yearn.

 

Without those lessons

Hard won and true

We finally realize,

We’d be nothing without you.

 

Amen.

None of us want to encounter bumpy roads, but that is when we grow. That’s where we develop faith. That’s when the Divine teaches us important lessons.

 

Learn to appreciate the bumpy roads, for they shape you into the person He wants you to become.

 

Without the bumpy roads, you won’t understand God’s grace. You won’t treasure your loved ones deeply. You won’t appreciate God’s abundance. You aren’t thankful for your good health.

 

See how God uses bumpy roads to teach you lessons? Remember this the next time you encounter bumpy roads.

 

We all have times of trouble. It’s how we respond to them that makes all the difference.

 

Do we lash out at others in blame? Do we try to solve the issue or cave into the new demands? Do we treat the affected parties with kindness and grace? Do we accept our part in the situation? Do we use this unfortunate incident to learn and grow?

 

How we respond to troubled times is a reflection of our own growth, a measure of our integrity and strength. It is a reflection of who we are as a person.

 

A wise person uses their times of trouble as a steppingstone to a more evolved life.

 

How do you handle troubled times? Is your reaction in the best interest of yourself and others?

 

Think about this the next time you experience troubled times.

Every time I go to Europe, I learn lessons to take back home to the United States. These are good refreshers of the things I have learned about life from the Europeans that I wish to incorporate into my everyday life. Let me share a few of these observances with you.

Savor the moment, whether it is an outstanding view of the Swiss Alps from an elevated vantage point, the intricate details of the church’s stain glass windows or memorable façade, the succulent dessert that seems to melt in your mouth, or the pace of life where each moment is savored.

Yes, each moment is worth savoring! Somehow, we Americans tend to forget such blessings once we enter into our everyday hectic lives.

Sit and ponder. Think about what life used to be like and how life has changed. This is especially interesting when in Europe where the history is deep, and the buildings remind you of times of the past.

Not so much in the USA, but we can still ponder. We can think about what we really want in life, the types of relationships, places we want to visit, and what our dream job might be. You can use your mind to go to a different place just by wondering.

Instead, we often worry about where we will go next. We are too busy checking Instagram or Facebook that we cannot relax. We don’t take the time to soak in the moment and enjoy the afternoon tea or talking with a new friend. We rush through the museums or amusement parks, with a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out.)

Europeans don’t live like that! They are never in a hurry to get their bill at the coffee shop or restaurant. Enjoying a meal is a treat to be savored. The connection with others is treasured. There is no hurry to end the conversation to go to the next thing on a to-do list.

They make provisions for bike lanes, pedestrian walkways, trams, buses, and automobiles. There are plenty of ramps for the elderly or disabled so they too can take part in the community aspect of a town or even a large city. There is a sense of inclusion. Everyone is accommodated at their own pace.

Restaurants and cafes are prolific! These little escapades are constant reminders to slow down and enjoy life. No drive-throughs and hurry up and eat in your car before heading back to the office or your next errand.

Flowers and trees are everywhere! They border the streetside cafes, delineating the separation from the adjoining café. They provide the ambiance of being outside in a garden even though the noisy traffic is just feet away. They use every opportunity to create memorable spaces so as to savor the moments.

With tables outside, it provides an easy way to get your daily sunshine, which many Americans seem to avoid or don’t have time for. Due to the density of structures and buildings, it forces people to walk, and walking is so good for us – physically and mentally.

This is something Americans tend to forget unless of course they are on a treadmill. It is much better and easier to incorporate these lifestyle changes into your life instead of changing things all together. This is an easy way to make improvements to your everyday life.

Learn to enjoy the coffee/tea break with a colleague. Enjoy the walk to the bistro if possible. Sit outside and hear the birds and smell the fragrances of the flowers. Cut your server some slack and try not to be in a rush.

Remember we are all people, trying to get by the best we can. Maybe the best we can do is to savor the moment and learn to enjoy life along the way.

Maybe we need to remember that life is not a race, but a journey to be savored, much like the French croissant that smells and tastes so delicious.

Yes, we Americans have much to learn from the Europeans. Perhaps it is time to integrate some of Europe into our lives!

You CAN NOT give up!
You just haven’t found the solution yet.

  • magically change the physical world around you
  • change everyone around you (but some people will respond positively to your new self)
  • stop all bad or difficult things from happening
  • You’ll be more optimistic about your life and your ability to change …
  • Which leads to taking action instead of feeling helpless …
  • Taking action means you start doing and creating the things you WANT in your life …
  • Which means that you will feel more positive and be more optimistic, persistent and more action-oriented.

Get my Positivity Reboot and let’s make the whole world happier and more positive!!

We have all had it happen. The love of our life that didn’t return our feelings. Our spouse who let us down through infidelity or death. The child who did not rise to our expectations. Our friend or co-worker who let us down in a time of need.

We have all experienced such heartbreak, disappointment, and devastation. The good news is we can do something about it and that something depends on us, not the so-called perpetrator.

How you might ask? It has to do with perception — OUR PERCEPTION — of the situation. This means doing things to change our mind as to how we look at the situation so we can maintain our happy or positive mood.

Let me give you some examples:

Separate their action from your love or affection for them.

Take the imagined scenario of your spouse committing an act of adultery. You are terribly hurt and believe your marriage is on the brink of dissolving. However, if you take the action and separate it from the person, you will be able to still love them, but not agree with their actions. This doesn’t mean you will or will not stay together. Instead, it means you are able to love them without condoning their actions.

Acknowledge everyone is on their own path.

This means when a person lets you down, it is a way for them to learn and grow. By making this mistake, it allows them to realize the consequences of their action. If everyone acted perfectly all the time, what would there be to learn? Actually, our lives would be pretty darn boring. Realize that others are on their own path of learning, just as you are. You have made mistakes too, so acknowledge that they are allowed to do so as part of their life experience.

Realize their action may not have anything to do with you.

It likely has more to do with them, the trials they are experiencing, and what they need to learn to be a better person in the long run.

Practice the art of forgiveness.

You may have heard it before: forgiving is not for the person who misbehaved. It is for the person affected by their actions. Forgiving is for you. This allows you to let go of your negative feelings and move on with your life without being consumed with emotional turmoil. Learning to forgive is an artform but it is one that we can all learn to do, even if we don’t consider ourselves to be “artsy.” Try to look at the big picture. Try to look at why the person did whatever they did and realize their action most likely had nothing to do with you. Forgiving tends to soften your heart and you learn to be kinder, more loving, and a better person.

React with kindness.

By putting aside your hurt and pain and acting with kindness, you are showing that you can behave above the fracas. Others will observe your behavior. In turn, they realize that uncomfortable situations can still be handled with grace.

Sometimes people do things that are immoral or ‘bad’ because they have internal issues, especially those of self-doubt and unworthiness.

When they observe someone being kind to them even though they have ‘misbehaved’, they may start to believe that they are still loved, and they are valuable or worthy individuals. This aids greatly in their personal growth and development.

Be grateful.

Be grateful for the time you had with the person and how they blessed your life so far. Realize that this one event does not take all those good memories away. Realize you still have much to be grateful for. Being grateful will change the way you feel and subsequently change the way you act towards this person. You will be a shining example to others of how to rise above turmoil and seemingly devastating events. This is important not just for you and the person involved; it is also good for the rest of society because they see how you can still be a nice person and rise above a terrible event.

Spend some time on self-reflection.

If you are unable to move on past this event, look to yourself. Are you holding on to this pain or grudge to punish yourself? Are you doing this because you feel unworthy and deserve such treatment? Maybe the problem is you and your interpretation of the events. Perhaps, you are taking it much too personally. Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreements, warns us not to take things too personally because other people’s actions seldom have anything to do with us. How we respond to their actions is the part that does have to do with us. That’s the part that is totally within our control because we can change how we behave.

The next time you experience heartbreak, disappointment, or devastation, seemingly due to the actions of another, remember you have control over how you respond to the situation. Strive to do so with dignity, grace, and kindness, just like you would want others to behave towards you.
