What is money? Is it merely the currency we use to pay for life’s essentials? Is it something we need to get what we desire? Is it a source for happiness? Does it make us a bad person if we have a lot of it? The truth of the matter is that money is actually none of these things from a spiritual perspective.
To the universe, everything is made up of energy or chi. Each piece of matter, living or not, vibrates at an energy frequency. Money is no different, it is simply energy. Energy is attracted to like energy, that which vibrates at a similar frequency. If your frequency is positive than you will attract positive things into your life, but the opposite is true also (negative attracts negative). This is the theory of Quantum Physics or the Law of Attraction, like attracts like.
Money cannot make a person bad, good, happy, sad, smart, stupid or anything else. Only people determine who they are and how they act. The idea that money is evil or that somehow people who accumulate more than others are evil is detrimental in so many ways. If you believe money is or will make you corrupt than you will surely sabotage your ability to have any. Why would you try to attract something if on a subconscious level you feel it is harmful?
As a child, about age 9, I was fascinated by money. It was wonderful to receive money and be able to buy something I liked. If I wanted something that cost more than the money I had, I could save until I reached that amount. If I wanted to earn money faster, I could actually make it by doing things for people who were willing to pay me (chores, babysitting, paper route, etc). Soon after I started earning some money, the adults in my life intervened with many lessons. Most of these revolved around holding onto my money and not spending it. As if by letting go of some of my money I could not get it back. I spent a good part of my life thinking money was in limited supply and you had to be extremely careful with exactly how you spent it, to the point of being afraid of spending any amount of money and over thinking every purchase. It’s a subconscious belief that resulted from the lessons imparted to me as a child and I still struggle with it today.
I am sure the advice about the money I was earning was simply to instruct me to be fiscally responsible and spend my money wisely and within my means. To not purchase things I could not afford and avoid becoming obsessed with shopping. I know now that although having “stuff” can be fun, it should never define who we are and will never bring about true happiness.
Unfortunately, most of what I was told about money as a child did not fully explain this and made me feel utterly confused. Money was something I needed, should work hard to earn but could not fully enjoy because it might go away at any second. Those ideas are all very wrong and they felt very wrong to me. Nothing in the universe is ever in limited supply; there is abundance for all of us if you believe it. Money is no different; remember it is energy. All energy has flow, you give and receive constantly. If you block this flow of energy by never really spending any money, than you cannot receive any either. This does not mean that constant shopping and spending sprees are the answer. Universal laws, like Quantum Physics, do not respond to over indulging. All matter must be respected, if you treat something abusively expect the same in return. Over or under spending of money is abuse.
If you never give or spend any money; holding onto it so tightly will cause a block in the flow of that energy cycle. Be generous, spend, share and enjoy your earnings responsibly. Know that the supply is bountiful, even if every person in your life believes it is limited. Believe that you deserve wealth and it cannot make you a bad person and remember to share.
Sharing is one of the most important aspects of the law of attraction. When you attract good into your life, sharing will multiply it. Money is meant to be shared and you can do so by donating to charity, hiring employees, giving it as a gift, shopping, paying for services like house cleaning or painting, investing in a business or stock, etc… When you share any aspect of yourself (talent, time, love, money, etc…) you are aligning with higher energy and that is the energy of God. Negativity of any kind brings you out of this alignment.
It may seem that lessons about money should not be all that important in relation to your life path, but it is absolutely critical. Money is a tangible energy source that we come in contact with on a daily basis and, in modern society, it is a necessity. Our beliefs about money can define the way we relate to all energy and therefore all life. If you believe negatively about one form of energy it will affect the flow of all others. For instance, if you believe money is in limited supply it will not only limit the flow of money into your life, it can limit the flow of other energy as well (such as love, friendships, success, etc…). So money is indeed a root, but not of all evil, rather of universal energy.
The preceding article is a brief synopsis from a chapter of “Truth Works, Divine Life Lessons for Kids of all Ages” by Gina Sendef. The premise of the book is to expose the negative nature of our traditional life lessons, handed down generation after generation. In doing so, my hope is to leave children (and the adults in their lives) with the universal, spiritual truth; ensuring that their subconscious belief system remains optimistic, safe and secure. What we say matters and when we learn the impact of our words, what they can manifest if we hold them in our hearts and minds, that is a truth that must be told. When we understand that the negativity of our long held life lessons does not work, we will understand why Truth Works. You can pre-order your copy of Truth Works at www.ginasendef.com.
