It is Not the Choice of the Craft that Limits the Money

As you practice your more positive, better-feeling story, in time your pleasure will become the dominant vibration within you, and then as you couple your pleasure with your means of earning, the two will blend perfectly and enhance each other.

There is no better way to earn money than to do the things that you love to do. Money can flow into your experience through endless avenues. It is not the choice of the craft that limits the money that flows—but only your attitude toward money.

—Abraham

Top 5 Steps to Up Your Money Mojo

  1. Write a Financial vision. Begin with the end in mind. Write down exactly what you want your finances to provide for your life so that it looks and feels as you intend it to be. Post your vision where you can see it every day. You can revise it along the way.
  2. Relook at your current Financial Picture. If you’ve been focused on what you don’t like about how far your current dollar can stretch then now take a look at your current life. See how much of it really does match the vision you just wrote. You want to hang on to those things and remember that part of your vision is already happening. That will sustain you when the going gets tough. Start aligning your choices so that your vision is the end game.
  3. Look at your current tolerations. What in your current financial life are you tolerating? What drains your energy or constantly bugs you? “I’ll cancel that account next month when I have more time” or “I know the kids will use the pool membership at some point. I might as well keep it…. for now.” Dump any of these things that you can dump now (without much effort or disruption) to make room for the new, good stuff coming your way.
  4. Clear the clutter. Surprisingly enough, the way our physical environment looks is a reflection of all other environments and vice versa. Begin to clear away clutter in general. Not only physical clutter but the clutter of too many open credit card accounts that you don’t really need or too many unnecessary distractions, activities, and commitments that suck your time and energy. Open up the energy for abundance to flow rather than just stick.
  5. Assess your relationship with Money. Do you Love it? Do you dream about it as a wonderful friend? Or does it drain you, upset you, or cause you problems? Is there anything you can do right now to release these feelings or change your relationship with them? Make room for an important, strong relationship with Money because in partnership you can have fun achieving the goals you’ve set in your Vision.

Do They Deserve It?

The person that needs to do something is not that person. The person that needs to do something is you! Some of those people in your life do not deserve your good thoughts. In other words, “They are bad. They are evil. They are wrong! They are inappropriate. They do not deserve your good thoughts,” and you stubbornly are not going to give them any. They may not deserve your good thoughts. But you do. You deserve your good thoughts about them. This is what the Art of Allowing is. It’s allowing my own Well-being.

This is so true but definitely a hard one for me. This quote was a “random” email open today because I don’t always take the time but today I did. As you know we get the message we are ready for. The only lessons that come into our path are the ones that we have sourced and are truly able to achieve. (I’m actually reminding myself of this right now … but you might already know that 🙂 )

My personal Theme lately has been about establishing boundaries. The way this is showing up for me has been in my relationship with my mother. She passed many years ago and I’ve been doing my best since then to make sense of the relationship we had while I was growing up.

At the time of her passing we were just starting to work things out but hadn’t gotten very far at all. The pain and anger from all the years of battle and betrayal was left for me to make sense of on my own.

A couple of months ago I finally came to an understanding of my mother as a woman. An understanding of how her mind worked and what may have been behind the way she treated me. My initial reaction when I felt the understanding was to forgive her and reach out for the feelings of peace that would surely follow.

But just then it occurred to me … this is NOT OK!!! I don’t care what her motivation was. The horrible way she treated me was NOT OK!!! And it felt powerful to hold boundaries for maybe the first time in my life. No matter what she was trying to accomplish I was the kid! Hurting me WAS NOT OK!!! I don’t care how good it made you feel or why!!!

Refusing to go straight into “now I understand so I forgive her” felt like a exercise in establishing a firm boundary about what’s acceptable and what is not in terms of behavior in my relationship with her. Even if it is about forgiving her spirit. The boundary lesson is for me in this human space.

So tell me … Do you tend to HOLD A GRUDGE? or Do you let things go quickly for the SAKE OF PEACE? Because I think I would have held on to this one for decades if left to my own devices.

“They may not deserve your good thoughts. But you do. You deserve your good thoughts about them. This is what the Art of Allowing is. It’s allowing my own Well-being.”

I owe thanks to God, Spirit, The Universe and Abraham for shortening my learning curve and giving me this message today. Like I said, I would have just held my boundary. Instead, I know it’s time to set my intention to remember good thoughts. I do feel vulnerable and nervous from past experience of letting my guard down with her.

So, what do we know for sure? The only lessons that come into our path are the ones that we have sourced and are truly able to achieve. In other words … God never gives us more that what we can handle.
Love and Blessings to you, Denise
