When we talk about relationships, do only people pop into your mind? Relationships aren't just about human interaction. Our relationship to things and ideas determine the quality of our lives too. Just as we yearn for loving relationships in life, who doesn't wish for a healthy, loving relationship with money?
Just as there are rules-of-the-road for dating, there are specific ways to attract, keep and grow a healthy relationship with money.
Money, like love, is really just a state of mind. It's always there, just not always within your range of awareness or sphere of influence. But your mind is just as equipped to attract money as it is love. How much love or money you attract depends on the energy of your request.
Here are 7 practical tips for catching, keeping and growing a rich relationship with money.
Believe You are Worthy
Men and women are attracted to people who are confident and satisfied with themselves. Money finds these traits attractive too! When you feel worthy of money's time and attention it tends to want to make itself available to you. If you find yourself thinking you never have enough, or that the energy you have to put out to keep its attention is beyond your abilities—I'm not smart enough, educated enough, mature enough—it will find a home in someone else's wallet.
Rethink Poverty Consciousness
How much negativity do you unconsciously hold toward money? Take some time to meditate on how you were conditioned to think about money and ferret out any "money is bad" beliefs hiding in the dark corners of your awareness. Maybe you were taught that it's not okay to have too much money, or to have more than others who are 'less fortunate.' Take some time to journal your thoughts and reactions about wealth, earning money versus being given money, debt, abundance and scarcity. It will help you uncover hidden beliefs.
Spin Your Wheel of Fortune
If you are feeling stuck in a monetary rut or you feel that your money channels are blocked, consider activating your Sacral Chakra. The Sacral or Second Chakra is associated with money, survival, power, sex
and primary relationships. When second chakra energies are imbalanced or blocked, we can easily fall into the trap of feeling powerless or impoverished.
Get a Great Exchange Rate
They don't call it currency for nothing. After all, those little pieces of paper only represent the value of energy exchanged, not the energy itself. If you could place a value on your own time and the energy you expend every day, how much would it be worth to you? How much would you be willing to pay to buy your time and energy back if you weren't fairly compensated? How much freer and more willing are you to spend your time and energy in the world when you feel the exchange rate is strong?
Put Your Money in Motion
Emotion means energy in motion. Money is simply another form of energy. When the current of money is running strong through your life, write down your thoughts.
Notice how you feel when you think there is plenty of money in your life and that it's here to support you. Then notice how you feel when you're sensing a lack of money or that money isn't supporting your life. Does your self-worth rise or fall according to the numbers in your bank account? Learn to appreciate your own human value
regardless of your financial status.
Play Rich Person!
Remember when you were a kid and you'd play 'house' or 'candy shop owner'? If you have old, negative messages about money playing in your head, try role playing a rich person. How much better off would you, and others, be if you had all the wealth you needed to feel safe and generous with the world? What if you could afford to donate to your favorite charities, help out a struggling friend or relative, renew and rebuild your home, school or church instead of needing those donations, loans or charity for yourself? Imagine that you've just acquired a billion dollars. Make a list of all the things you'd do with that money. Then make a list based on having one million dollars. Continue writing your list until you've arrived at your actual income. See how rich you are
in choices, ideas and human spirit. Do this exercise whenever you catch yourself contracting instead of expanding your energy around money.
Pay Yourself High Interest
Keep your money happy by rewarding it with high returns on its investment. Just as you'd keep your love life healthy by showing interest in your partner's life, be willing to pull some money out of circulation and into some interest earning savings. Not only will you show yourself that you have confidence in your future, you will energetically assure money that being with you would be time well spent.
