“Money and Me” is by contributing author Jen…
If you have an interest in aspects of the value of money including credit card debt, mortgage rates, equity release, mortgage refinance, and the mind set to consolidate debt etc., you may find Jen’s words on how these relate to energy and personal worth quite interesting:
In and of itself money is just a system of energy used for exchange. I am growing increasingly aware however, that I have attached a great deal more meaning to it. I have often invested my personal worth in this definition of using money: if I have none I am unworthy.
Unfortunately, if I have a lot I have noticed fears, based or un-based can manifest, and I tend to respond with contraction. For example I may be attacked and rejected by friends and family who have less. Or others may target me to steal from, or hate me for exemplifying wealth because they find it inaccessible. Or inversely if others do befriend me then I might be falsely loved for what I have, not who I am.
This is a consternating double standard! I have literally created a lose-lose situation which I am keen to redefine.
I know several stunning people with lovely, generous, compassionate hearts who have lots of money, and many who do not have lots of money.
Therefore I desire opening myself to the potential flow of resources wisely, generously, and to be enormously kind and full of joy. It is completely possible to generate it all simultaneously.
What, then, is the access route to this state of fuller flow?
Well, I admit this part is a work in progress. It is also possible the answers are different for everyone, or not.
The beginning point, apart from discerning what I have scripted about properties connected to money that are untrue, and owning that I am solely and fully responsible for the contents of the script [which means I am equally empowered to re-write it]; well it appears to be self-love!
I have seen recently, with the aid of life coach Deb Kolb, that there is no one, not even a person who harmed me, that I would talk to or treat so badly as I often do to myself!
I am actually a lovely person with a bright mind and a kind heart. It is quite undeserving behavior to whip myself into submission via criticism, creating endless to-do’s with no break until they’re done, etc.
So, as I open to being kinder to me, it naturally spreads to others. I relax my body, mind, heart and soul, and inherently there is more room for energy to flow. And after all, money is just a system of energy…used for exchange.
