Money is one of those areas I see people constantly making themselves crazy about. It’s really quite funny to see people choose that, because you see it is a choice. Having or not having money is a choice.
Now, you might not be the first person first person to think I’m full of cr*p when I say this. But after doing years and years of trauma and drama with money myself, I had to look at what points of view I had around money. When I was willing to honestly look at it, not judge myself for it, and change it, money started flowing into my life in ways far beyond my imagination. And the cool thing is that my money situation keeps changing even now.
So many people say there are formulas for making money; the truth is I have found that there is no ‘tried and true’ formula for making money. Is there a tried and true formula for being you? Or are you unique? So what if your reality with money is unique too? Just an interesting point of view.
How many of us have thought ‘If I just had this much money, my issues would be solved!’? And yet, isn’t it strange how most people who do suddenly come into money, for example lottery winners, manage to re-create their previous financial situation within 4-7 years of winning. Why is this? There is one really fundamental thing they didn’t change – their points of view about money. Apparently the sudden appearance of a lot of money does not actually cure the drama, diminishment and judgement of you that you create around money. Isn’t it just hideous to realize that money is not the solution to your problems? Or is it? What if the solution is actually something way more interesting – you.
The truth is that no matter how much money you have or don’t have right now, you can change your views around money and see your financial reality change right before your eyes. Here’s the catch though, and you are probably not going to like it – you have to be willing to have ease and joy with money, right now, before the money shows up. You have to give up those wonderful points of view you are so attached to about money being a difficult, impossible area of your life.
The Mantra of Access is ‘All of Life Comes to Me with Ease and Joy and Glory!’. Ease, Joy, Glory. Those are what you are being when you are really being you. You are Ease, Joy and Glory. When you are doing pain, suffering and gory, you are not being you. Now if you are willing to consider that notion for a second, you might suddenly realize that you spend a lot of time not being you. Maybe a hell of a lot. Never mind, you can choose again.
Have you ever felt like you are a slave to money? Here’s the thing: your point of view creates your reality, your reality doesn’t create your point of view. And, since you are the creator of your reality, if that is your point of view, that is the reality you will create. Do you think you might choose to create a different reality now?
What’s the value of having total peace with money? When you are willing to create the money in your life from the joy, possibility and ease, life gets a lot more fun! And what’s weird is that money starts to show up in unexpected ways too. Choosing for the joy of your life means that you make being you greater than money or anything else – it means money can become your servant, not the other way around.
I have met hundreds, probably thousands of people, who have felt they are in a corner financially, or in their relationship, or in business, and feel that there is no way out. For me the joy is seeing this change so quickly and easily. When their eyes light up with the sense of new, greater and more joyful possibilities for them in their lives, I say ‘Be careful – keep this up and you might just get happy!’
