Everything in our lives is about relationships.
Relationship with selves, with our friends, family, team, boss, clients, food, money…
We get to ask ourselves if how we are treating money we would like to be treated?
Most of the time the answer is no, yet, there’s nothing to be ashamed of.
As Maya Angelou wisely said:
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
Now that you know better you can choose again and create a relationship that is fulfilling.
Write down how YOU would like to feel in a relationship, how would you like to be treated?
With love, care, respect, having fun, feeling free to be myself, nurtured, heard, etc.
Now that you know how YOU want to feel, ask yourself how can you make money feel that way?
You can start by writing it a letter on your weekly dates, having your weekly dates that feel fun and are connecting you with money.
Imagine money as your lover, friend or a family member.
When we treat money as just a thing that’s what it becomes. Thing that is lifeless and we can’t predict.
Yet, when we treat money with energy of love, respect, and as a close person we love, that is what it becomes. Always available, supportive and loving.
Remember, the difference between source and channels.
Your clients, job, parents, family, friends, that’s not your source of money or abundance. Those are just channels and channels can always be created and changed.
Your source of money is the universe, source, God, whatever you believe is the higher power that is keeping us and all alive and working 🙂
When you are thirsty you can go drink water from a tap at home, yet when it’s broken you won’t freak out that you will die of thirst, because you know there are different channels where to get water.
Same goes with money. There are always more channels and when you can relax and surrender to that infinite power that’s when you tap into the continuous abundance (and inner peace, knowingness, bliss, happiness) …
For your weekly money date:
Create a fun and feel good environment – ask yourself what would be fun on a date?
Candles, crystals, essential oils, music, food, drinks??
Do just that and each week play with something new or celebrate what feels the best for you.
Get a wall calendar and write on it each and every income of money from any sources – then do weekly sum of it (and also at the end of the month sum of the month) I love using highlighter to make the individual sums stand out
Get nice journal for your journaling and letters with money
I love starting with hot cacao, essential oils and setting intentions for the date and then I write an appreciation letter to money. Sometimes it’s a forgiveness letter if I abandoned it or didn’t check on it or didn’t trust it will come.
Under that I write the Weekly Abundance – that I get from my calendar – Individual income and then highlight the sum for the week.
Then I move into How am I circulating money (it’s like a dream list how am I using money when I have more than enough of it)
Then I am done or if I want more I write about – Short term financial goals and next Long term financial goals
Get a bigger journal where you can write a different investments each week you write what you have invested in –
Business, Personal, Groceries, Eating out, Bills – are examples of my monthly investments.
Remember, the relationships that work are the ones we work on.
How will you work on your relationship with money from now on?
