Last night when I was meditating it occurred to me that I do not have a good relationship with money. When I think about money I get this stressy feeling in my chest. Is this normal? I realised that all my life money has been a very negative topic for me. When I don’t have money I spend time thinking about how I am going to earn it. When I have it I spend time thinking about what I am going to do with it.
I was sat there trying to meditate and all these thoughts were spinning round my head. I was starting to feel stressed and the sense of peace I had only moments ago was fading. I deepened my breathing and brought myself back to the present. ‘I release these thoughts’ I said to myself. ‘I release these thoughts.’
That was a great quick fix but now I want a long term solution to improve my relationship with money. I want to release all my attachment in a society which is obsessed. That is hard! Everyone believes we need it to live and survive and the more the better. But I disagree. There must be another way.
Obviously I do want money in my life. I would like enough to be able to live comfortably and travel and be generous to everyone around me. However I have came to the conclusion that I must change my perceptions around money before I try and manifest it in my life.
I think the thing I need to remember is that money isn’t real. It is what it is. If you have it then great! Give some away, be generous, share. If you don’t have it then that is ok. If you release all attachment then you cannot be upset if you have it or you don’t. You will be grateful for everything that you have.
So I am grateful for everything that I have. I release my attachment and stress and worry around money. I have enough to live and I am grateful. I trust that when it is time the universe will shower me in abundance. I am already being showered in abundance. I have an abundance of love and happiness and laughter and people in my life.
And for that I am forever grateful.
Have a wonderful day everyone.
Also please let me know if anyone else feels the same as I do and if they have any great solutions to releasing an attachment to money in their life! I don’t spend anything on clothes/objects but I do love it for travelling so that is definitely an attachment which I am struggling to release. So yes let me know and have a great day!
