It is so important to have a healthy outlook towards finances. Without it, an unhealthy obsession can take over and become the unconscious driver that motivates unethical decision making, which can lead to actions you won’t be proud of.
Time to cultivate a higher purpose that can attract into your reality, the people, places, things, and opportunities that match what you are all about! To begin with, start with an attitude of gratitude, which helps to cultivate a mindset that places your consciousness in the land of enough, and out of fear, lack, and limitation.
It’s not that you will choose to be oblivious to your desires and ignore the necessities of life. You just won’t need as much as you have in the past. And, you will feel more satisfied with what you do have! To put it simply - you will be less wasteful. You will use what you need and appreciate all that you receive!
When aware, you will be more conscious of how your actions affect others. You will use your insight and intuition to guide you, and then take constructive right action in a solution oriented manner, instead of reacting negatively to life concerns.
In essence, to be aware means that you trust in a higher power, and allow yourself to be proactive, as you let go and let the Divine guide and direct your way.
With an understanding such as this, there will be no need to panic because you feel connected to something greater than yourself. You feel aligned with an intelligence that you know in your heart is guided by the power of love.
Once it finally sinks in that your good already exists in the mind of God who is everywhere present, and that you are an individualization of the Divine, you will step out of desperation and allow spirit to create what mirrors your level of deservability! You will attract what you earn by right of consciousness. As a result, you will choose to take responsible right action to manifest everything in healthy and balanced ways.
So, in what way do you see yourself being of service and giving your energy to the world? When you can release the need to get what the ego desires, and instead, surrender to the possibilities that surpass a limited perception, wonderful things have the opportunity to shine through to bless you and others. How you choose to give of your time, treasure, and talent will determine the road you will travel!
Universal law states that the more you give, the more you will have. However, it is important to release any idea of how this good will out-picture in your reality. When you allow the Divine to manifest that which is for your highest good, your life will be blessed with the experience of grace. What is grace and why is it vital to your happiness? Grace is the key, which opens the door to the kingdom of heaven, here on earth!
So, what does financial wellness mean to most people? Does it mean that you will not want materially? Or, does it imply that you will be happy with the life you have created and will be able to buy what you need, and sometimes what you want when necessary?
I know you probably realize that money isn’t everything, but it sure is nice to have a sufficient supply to pay the bills and to have a little fun along the way. I mean, “All work, and no play, makes Jack a dull boy!”
If you were to spend all your time merely working to take care of your basic needs, it would get old if you weren’t able to blow off some steam in a fun way.
As with all things, balance is the key. If you fail to put equal time into the different areas of wellness, eventually you will discover an imbalance. You will learn more about yourself, if you nurture every area. When you understand what makes you happy, your focus can be directed towards living a more fulfilling life.
To attract abundance in all areas of your life, it is important for you to live in alignment with values that resonate with your core beliefs. This abundance will reflect back to the health of your financial well-being. The amount of money you manifest is not as important as your overall quality of life.
If your social well-being is damaged from a lack of attention to nurturing this area, all the money in the world will not comfort you at night or keep you company when you are in need of love and support.
If your physical well-being is damaged from consuming a low quality diet, you will end up spending all your money on doctor bills.
If in bad shape from lack of exercise, you will not feel inspired to adventure into the unknown to explore the beauty around you. Instead, a passive lifestyle will dictate how you spend your days and nights.
If depressed from betrayal, loss, self-destruction, obsessions, and trauma, you may feel compelled to spend your time in a facility talking to a psychologist, instead of appreciating all the gifts you have been blessed to receive.
If you fail to spend time with family members, you will end up living with a bunch of strangers who resent you because of your lack of attentiveness. If you want a happy family life, spend quality time with loved ones to nurture each relationship, so strong emotional bonds will develop.
If you neglect to build a healthy intellectual capacity, you will be limited in your ability to interact with others and feel incapable of pursuing interesting activities because of a lack of self-confidence. To change this not so promising future, choose to study subjects that matter to you. When you understand life, your communication skills will improve and support you in your different areas of interest.
If you neglect to develop spiritually, you will have a difficult time building healthy relationships that are ethically and morally sound. Out of a falsely perceived necessity, you may choose to take advantage of others in an effort to control your life, while in your search for happiness and meaning.
If you want to deepen your spiritual connection with the Divine, go within and connect to your higher self through personal reflection and study. Take action to learn from experience to gain an understanding of the meaning of life.
If you neglect to get involved in recreational activities, you will miss out on experiencing all that life has to offer. When not involved, you are instead, a passive bystander who has just overlooked fun opportunities that could have provided a chance to get to know others on a deeper level.
If you hunger for creative expression, engage in the various forms of recreation to learn new life skills. When proactive, you will enjoy interacting with others in a playful way, while participating in the different fun activities.
If you choose to stay stuck in a career that no longer serves you, that is your decision and no one else’s. If you choose to play the victim card and to blame others for your unhappiness, you will stay where you are at until you choose to accept responsibility for the role you have played in the life you have manifested. No one else is at cause to your experience. Only you have the power to change your reality.
If you are unhappy in your career, it’s time to reevaluate your job to either quit or accept it to move forward. A job is not worth your time if you prostitute your consciousness to get the money you believe you deserve. If you sacrifice your integrity for the sake of the almighty dollar, you will not end up feeling the happiness you deserve.
If you desire a healthy romantic life, you must be a mirror of the person you hope to attract. When you embody the type of qualities that you hold dear, others of a similar mindset will also find them important. If you are not a mirror of these special assets, you will repel the person you so desperately want to interact with.
If you want to attract your soul mate, it is important to be able to stand on your own two feet financially, so you won’t feel tempted to compromise your values. A healthy relationship must be built on integrity that resonates with the highest good of all concerned.
To have a healthy financial life, nurture each of the above areas.
The time to be healthy in all areas is now. It is possible to attain health in mind, body, and spirit when you are open and willing to be proactive and to choose life. You can heal. Relief from grief and loss can be achieved when you feel connected to a higher purpose that gives meaning to your life. When you experience a connection to something bigger than yourself, you feel grounded. Your heart beats to a different drummer that is aligned to the integrity of living an authentic spiritual life.
When you finally become cognizant of how your conscious decision making is affecting the world, you awaken to the responsibilities that are yours and need to be dealt with. To play an effective part in change making, you must connect with that which resonates with your heart, and motivates you to take action as a personal role model to inspire positive change in others.
When you become motivated to make choices that are helpful and not harmful, for the highest good of all concerned, you are living your truth, and mastering the integrity of your higher self. When your intent is pure, all your needs will be met in one way or another. Your life will be blessed in more ways than you can imagine. In addition, when you enjoy the work you do, it will feel on par with effortlessness that in and of itself, is worth more than gold. Why? Because time is money! You can’t get time back, so you had better use every hour, every minute, and every second of the day wisely!!!
Also, remember that old saying, “Waste not, want not.” You don’t need as much as you think you do. Your energy is currency that must not be squandered. When you honor resources, you will have more energy to create, and to give to those in need.
Wealth is a state of mind. It is an experience of abundance that blesses you with happiness, love, and the joy of living. Don’t be deceived by what others have in material possessions, for shuffling stuff can merely be a comforting mechanism individuals use to handle the emptiness that has materialized from failing to create an authentic life of integrity. A preoccupation with stuff or any kind of addiction can be a short term solution that can distract people from dealing with long term solutions that truly bring happiness. The distractions mask the fear and pain through an hypnotic dance that keeps them from getting involved in the world. While caught in the cycle of addiction, they fail to take creative action.
Think about this…In regards to shopaholics, you can only wear one outfit at a time, sleep in one bed, and sit in one chair, etc. at any one given moment. Oftentimes, an inferiority complex can motivate individuals to accumulate more than is needed, to either intentionally or unintentionally, create a façade of success. Yes, it’s great you are able to build a stockpile of stuff, but it’s not necessary.
Ask yourself why you may feel the need to accumulate more than you really need…
This type of behavior can occur when fear sets in and you doubt your ability to provide for the necessities and desires of life. This doubt can cause you to hold on to things that have already served their purpose. When you release the possessions you no longer need, you free your energy and give yourself the gift of peace. As a result, you no longer struggle to keep up with the Jones. Instead you are choosing to honor mother nature by limiting your consumption of the earth’s resources. Doing so helps to heal the environment and cleanses the air.
When it comes down to it, prosperity is really a mindset and a way of life. Everyone can bask in the glow of a prosperous life. If you can put your ego aside and step into the art of giving, you will experience the blessings of grace that will free your soul and lift your spirits to the heavens.
