“Money, much like clay, is to be played with.
Like clay, you can learn how to create with it.
Like clay, you can make cool things with it.
It’s when we make money about ourselves that it gets messy.
That’s when we start feeling we are right about
something we feel is wrong with others, or with ourselves,
or with banks, or with the economy, and so on.”
– Jennifer Hough
“… Money is a big, fraught topic for most people because they think it’s what makes the world go round. Uh, by the way, it’s not. Magnetics makes the world go round, both figuratively and literally.“
So, if that’s the case and we have beliefs about money (we all do), should we spend the rest of our lives fixing our beliefs because they’re wrong? I will depart from the answer I would typically give on this subject.
Why? Because the ideas about money in this world have such a stronghold on our reality that it takes a pure outlook on the subject, with no strings attached, for someone to let the past belief go and let abundance flow.
The first thing to address in the case of money is the idea that you would even spend time trying to fix what is not broken. Listen, you absolutely could be justified in some of your beliefs about money – or love, for that matter. You have evidence. Some pretty disconnected people are doing some pretty naughty and incongruent things with money.
But that’s not money’s fault. Remember, I started my university studies in accounting and then moved over to economics, so I understand what money is and does, and it’s simply a unit of exchange. Period. It doesn’t make you a better person, or more worthy, or smarter. It doesn’t give you more joy or greater fulfillment. I’ve worked with billionaires, and they have the same problems as everyone else; their problems just come with more zeroes.

Many years ago, every December, during the holidays, my bank account would go down to almost nothing. I would get disturbed. Then I’d collect evidence for why that happened, as though somehow that would make it better. I discovered that you could either collect evidence for why something is happening – and therefore recreate that event in the future – or you can imagine, plan, and co-create anew to stay in step with Creation itself, which lives in total abundance … my response to this time of year became, “How can I be of service?”
Then, with a heart full of love and compassion, I would work at a food bank or a food line, and, miraculously, money would come in ways that I could never have imagined. It’s all about emotional frequency, my friend, without attachment to the outcome.
Have you ever said one of these statements?
“I’m not good with money.”
“I want to make sure I keep all my money safe.”
“People do bad things with money.”
“I have to guard money and control it.”
“Money comes, and it goes.”
“I have enough money, but never more than enough.”
If any of those statements sound like you, exchange the word “money” for “some kids” or “love.”
It doesn’t feel too good, does it? So, the subject of money will be a loaded one for most people, and therefore addressing the subject is not the first approach we want to take.
Being righteous about your wrongness (your limitations) will perpetually keep you in the same money experience. So, let’s approach it a wholly different way. Let’s look at abundance in general. I’ve already mentioned that you are abundant.
Here are some irrefutable facts:
- You do not have to earn true abundance. Trees breathe out what you breathe in, and you did nothing to deserve that except being alive.
- Your eyes are set up in such a way to interpret light and be delighted by sunsets of every different shade and brilliance. Again, you did not have to do anything to be worth the beauty of a sunset.
- Your cells renew anywhere from once every three hours to once every seven years. Again, there’s nothing you have to do to make that happen. You have an abundance of new cells without even knowing about it.
Abundance is not your issue. Where you focus is the issue.
Everything that comes into your life enters because of your magnetics (what you focus on) and your frequency (the “goodness” of emotion you experience). In the case of money, if you know you have a lot of history and baggage on the subject, the best place to start is to find a different subject on which you can easily experience joy, creativity, and energy. Then, aside from making sure you have a plan to pay your bills, don’t focus on money, especially if you have perspectives that bring you down or make you worry about money. Instead, focus on other areas of life that lift you up, do things that inspire you, and fill your day with acknowledgments of your abundance (which may or may not be related to money) in ways that are easy for you.
Raise your vibration.
Wherever you last left your frequency on any subject will affect your ability to receive in that area. If you haven’t changed your relationship to that subject, it’s best to enjoy another aspect of your life in the meantime. Enjoying your life in one context absolutely opens doorways in others as long as you don’t bring your attention to subjects that you haven’t transcended yet (like money).”
With all my love,
