Energise your financial feelings
How do you feel about your financial situation? Did you have a very big Christmas and the bills are still coming in, and you are struggling to pay them? Did you realise that the energy you have towards money often creates the very situation you are trying to avoid? While it may seem hard to believe, money is just another form of energy. Your thoughts and feelings about money (or the lack of it) can keep you stuck where you do not want to be.
Imagine you are meditating. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and picture this magnificent, majestic ancient tree, its roots solidly grounded into the earth with branches reaching up to the sky; its beautiful green leaves glinting in the sunlight as a gentle breeze touches them. Now imagine yourself standing at the bottom of the tree, with your back leaning against it and your arms spread wide above. Breath in the energy of the tree. Now imagine the tree has thousands of $100 notes attached to its leaves – this is your money tree. Feel it – feel the energy and abundance. Say to yourself over and over again, “I have an abundance of health, wealth, love and happiness in my life and I accept it now” and/or “I am a money magnet” and create an image in your mind of drawing money to you magically.
On the practical side, be mindful of the words you use around money. If you are constantly saying to yourself, “I never have enough money”, “I am hopeless with money”, you are actually creating the very thing you are trying to avoid. The universe will keep fulfilling the story you have created, as it believes that is what you want.
Take back your power over you finances and create a different story. Imagine what it feels like each month to already have funds waiting in your bank account, ready for when then bills arrive. Imagine being able to take the kids on a family holiday, or have a weekend away with your partner.
Sometimes, it is a simple as realising where your money leaks are. Do you buy your lunch every day or have takeaway regularly? I had a couple once who were spending $20 per day each on coffee and takeaway lunches. This equates to $100 per a week or $5,200 per annum each = $10,400 per annum for a couple. I’m not suggesting you stop having these things altogether (as I’m all for enjoying the journey). Consider making it a once-a-week treat, on Fridays perhaps. Create a bank account for bills and one for holidays and re-energise the balance with regular deposits and make a difference in your own life!
