The first step to making more money is an inner mindset shift.
In order to make more money, you must decide to get in the game. Part of getting in the game is choosing to have more money in your life. I have seen many folks on the spiritual path who haven’t made this decision, deciding that money is not so important, and thus struggle in this area.
Money is an important facilitator for life experiences. In order to build temples, hospitals, schools, you need money.
In order to feed the homeless, provide clean water, or simply pay the rent requires money. There’s only so much prayer you can give to your landlord to cover your rent! There’s only so much prayer you can feed a starving child in Africa with.
I believe that those people with awakened consciousness will only use the money they have in more impactful ways. So make the decision and use money as a blessing.
Being rich is not simply a matter of how much money you have in your bank account. But how you feel about yourself, and how you feel about what you have.
Being rich is being connected to who you really are. As you connect to the real you, you realize that what you really are is infinite and priceless. You can have all the material possessions in the world, but if you don’t have YOU, then you are poor.
Being rich is to be grateful for all that you do have in your life and fully enjoying what you have now. We are so blessed in many ways, and it can sometimes be easy to take our blessings for granted. It’s not just what you think about but what you THANK about that makes the difference.
Being rich is not just determined by what you accumulate, but by what you give and the generosity of your spirit.
It’s important to remember that money is energy. And if outer experience is a reflection of your inner reality, what does your relationship with money reflect to you about your self?
Money is a manifestation of your inner state of consciousness.
So if you want to manifest more of it, rather than only working so hard out there in the world, you must begin by changing the world of beliefs and programming within yourself, your inner relationship with money.
Trying to make more money by chasing it only pushes it away. Chasing money simply affirms your lack of it. And even if you do attain it, there will always be a sense scarcity and fear. From this place, no amount of money will bring you real lasting inner peace.
So rather than chasing money, start by taking a step back. Raise your vibration by loving and accepting yourself unconditionally. Seeking this love, validation and acceptance is what is often driving us to make money in the first place. We attach our sense of worthiness and value to how much money we have or not. And it becomes a never-ending quest.
To try and get outside what you are seeking inside is an unfulfilling game. No amount of money will make you enough, you already are enough.
As you love yourself just as you are and as you are not, your worth and happiness is no longer determined by the amount of money that you have, and you are free in the most beautiful way. You are not attached to money, and thus are truly rich.
Money is a by-product of how you feel about yourself.
As you love yourself, and accept yourself fully, you connect with your true worth and value. You no longer need to get validation outside yourself in an effort to feel OK. When you need nothing you are free. And when you are free, you become truly powerful. People will gravitate towards you because your energy is inviting and reassuring.
As you connect to your inner worthiness, the better you will feel, and the better you feel about yourself, the more your energy vibrates at a higher frequency. As a result the more likely you will be able to magnetize the kind of opportunities that are likely to resonate with abundant energy.
Everything is energy.
It’s also important to remember that money is a by-product of the value you add in the market place. Money is a result and the means of exchange for the value that you add.
So rather than focus solely on making money, look for where there is a problem, and solve it. As you provide a solution you become valuable. As you add value, you can be rest assured that you will be blessed, and money will be one of many methods of the energetic exchange.
This is why I believe that how you feel about yourself and the energetic aspect is so important. There are so many goods, products and services out there in your industry. There is so much competition in today’s marketplace. What makes you unique is the energy that you bring to those you serve. It’s your energy that impacts people and gives them a feeling. It’s your energy that is the priceless blessing. On one level people don’t just come to you for your product or service, they are coming to you for your energy and how you make them FEEL. Your product and service is a way to transmit your energy to those around you.
As you love yourself unconditionally, you consolidate your energy, and center yourself in your power. From this place of valuing yourself, you can offer your gifts to the world. As you add value to your community, you won’t have to chase money, money will chase you.
