Recently I had someone write me having read my Beyond the Secret book. He felt frustrated because he thought it meant we should not have financial means to do what we need to do. This is not the case. The questions are: Who are we? What do we need to do? What is the right use of finances to help along these lines?
I’ve been grappling with these questions for some time and have written articles that you can find in the notes on my blog here about money and it’s right use. But, here are some summary tips.
1. Know who you are. If you are attracting as the ego (selfish separated self), you want to attract stuff mainly to show off, to prove how much better you are than everyone else, to give you a false sense of security. If you are attracting as the soul or spiritual self you attract stuff to help you accomplish what you need to in service to others.
2. Know what you need to do. And, as a spiritual self that need is always service oriented. Maybe your service is as a doctor, a healer, a teacher, an economist, a hairstylist, a scientist, a counselor, whatever. The point is not what you are doing, but that you are doing it well with a mindset to help others.
3. Practice right use. That means look around you and see if you are truly taking care of your belongings and the things/people you are responsible for in a loving and care-full (versus care-less) manner.
These are all some key questions to get you started. And, as you answer these questions in a healthy way the rest falls into place. Money flows. You have what you need, not what you “greed.” You can live simply, so people can simply live. You are a good steward of money, are charitable if you have an abundance. You are peaceful and content.
Hope this helps.
Love and blessings,
