In our society, you’re led to believe that the more of something you have, the more happiness you will have. What is a good job? More money of course. What’s a good house? The more expensive one. Where are the best schools? Naturally near the most expensive houses. Nothing new here. I personally don’t live my life that way any more. That’s why I still drive my car with 112,000 miles on it and why I live in a 700 square foot condo. For the most part, I believe in spending my money on experiences, rather than stuff. But, you do need enough to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head, right?
I’ve been financially stuck for weeks. I have no revenue coming in and I’ve started to feel the pressure. It’s not like I’m out of house and home, but after going many years with a consistent paycheck, it has become a bit unnerving to not have a paycheck coming in. Recently, I made a conscious effort to clear this stuck energy and reopen my channels of abundance. I’ve built a vision board, I’ve done affirmations, I’ve saged my place. You name it, I’ve probably tried it. I had a really good conversation with a friend late last night where I got some great advice for reopening my abundance channels.
Today I started to see the fruits of my energetic labors. I got confirmation that a deal I had been working on for weeks was a go! It’s a big accomplishment because it means that money will be coming in finally. How much money are we talking here? After taxes, somewhere in the neighborhood of $200. Yeah, I shouldn’t plan on retiring any time soon. But here’s the interesting part. As quickly as it comes in, it goes out.
An even more exciting development that’s taken shape over the last two days involves two bands that I’ve followed since I was very young, Guns N’ Roses and Iron Maiden. Both are touring and will be nearby in the coming months. I’ve never seen Guns N’ Roses(even if it isn’t the “real” GNR) and my only experience seeing Iron Maiden was tarnished by a very drunk friend. I don’t care if I have to sell a kidney, I’m going! Tickets went on sale for both shows today and I was fortunate to score tickets to both! Take a wild guess how much the tickets ended up being. Oh, somewhere in the neighborhood of $200. Easy come, easy go!
So now I’m thinking that maybe I have it backwards. Instead of staying holed up waiting for revenue to come in, I should be out spending the money I do have. Maybe that’s what I need to clear my abundance blocks. Get the money flowing out so new energy can make new money flow in. Probably not the advice a financial advisor would give, but we’re talking about the power of the Universe here!
It’s really not the craziest idea I’ve ever had. The money I am clutching to for security right now is “old” money. It was all given to me in exchange for my soul at my former company. I didn’t earn it by doing anything to contribute to the good of mankind.
Friends have heard me refer to the goals of that company as: 1 – Inflate the egos of the higher ups, 2 – Make sure you never make the higher ups look bad, 3 – Do what’s right for the company(as long as 1 and 2 are in line) and a distant 4 is to treat your people right. I spent most of my time on numbers 3 and 4 and clearly fell out of favor there. But the reality is, I was conscious of 1 and 2 and no doubt spent a considerable amount of time on those goals whether I realized it or not. That means that the money I “earned” was based on low vibration activities. Is it crazy to think that I won’t clear my abundance channels until I get my soul back? And to do that maybe I need to get rid of the soul-less money. I need to energetically launder my money!
Part of me wishes I had the guts to just donate my entire savings to a charity I feel strongly about and then see if it works the way I think it would work. But I can’t be unrealistic about this. I just need to be smart about where I spend my money or more important, how I recycle the energy in that money. If its something that will help either directly or indirectly raise my vibration, then spending money on it is right. If not, then its not right.
I’m not sure how the Universe feels about Guns N’ Roses and Iron Maiden, but I’ll take that temporary vibration hit if I need to. ; )
