Struggling Financially? Start with Love

Topics: , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • In my first Inspire Me Today post, I talked about love. When I was deciding what to write this time, I thought: What follows love as a top concern? The answer is money. Interestingly, the two are entwined.

    The key to financial abundance, just like everything else in life, is love. We must love ourselves in order to 1) feel worthy, 2) receive abundance, 3) maintain wealth, and 4) grow our financial resources. If there are parts of ourselves we don’t love, our subconscious mind will find all sorts of ways to create the financial difficulties we think we deserve.

    Thankfully, there are myriad ways we can address the financial challenges we’ve created. First, we must release anything that is holding us back, and then we must fill that space with what can move us forward. We also must clarify our desire.

    Releasing Financially Draining Thoughts and Emotions

    All of us have “dings” in our mind’s perception of our financial actions and abilities. Many of us carry doubts, worries, and criticisms every day of our lives. But, these inherently are creating more of the same challenges we faced before. If you want to move forward, it is crucial you release any guilt or blame you are harboring because of past financial decisions or your current financial status.

    Just like they say couples shouldn’t go to bed angry with each other, if you feel bad about something you did, said, or thought financially, work it out of your system by the time you go to bed. Run until your body aches or meditate until 4 a.m., but do whatever it takes to release the financial thoughts and emotions that are bringing you down so you can start the next day with a fresh, loving, centered presence.

    Creating Uplifting Financial Thoughts and Emotions

    Once you have done your best to release negative thoughts related to your finances, choose to replace those thoughts with positive ones that will help you create a better financial reality.

    Positive statements that can help you shift to a more forgiving, loving, supportive mindset:

    • I am worthy of financial abundance now.
    • I release guilt from my financial circumstances. In fact, I am proud of responding the best way I know how to financial challenges.
    • I put financial problems into perspective.
    • I recognize that my life is good and valuable as is, in all its forms. (In other words: I recognize that the status of my life does NOT equal the status of my finances.)
    • The ways I acquire, maintain, and spend money are uplifting to my soul.
    • I can be financially wealthy and have a wonderful life in every other area I choose.

    Beyond these initial steps, ask yourself if you truly want financial abundance. Many people have mixed feelings about actually having a lot of money. When you make up your mind to have financial abundance, you will have it. If you still are caught in miscellaneous mind dramas in relation to money, you will not. Do you want it, or do you not?

    Developing a mindframe that will lend itself to a healthy financial reality can be simple or it can be a challenge. It depends on how ready we are to make the changes it will take to live a wealthier way. The path to financial abundance always starts in our hearts and in our minds.

    When we clear our hearts and fill them with love, and when we clear our minds and fill them with positive financial pictures, we will create the abundance that enables us to experience more financial peace and to serve the world in even more fulfilling ways.

      Thank you Caroline. For as long as I can remember I have felt like a stunted person in the growth area of finances and although I understand the premise attached to self worth and self love and how that brings about financial abundance the two synapses necessary to fire correctly for the ‘AHA’ moment only clicked into place now. I have been harboring a lot of guilt about myself and many of my actions throughout my life up until this very moment. Thank you for re-iterating this glorious wisdom. I look forward to releasing all this pain and letting myself be who I am meant to be financially, spiritually, mentally and in fact just plain old happy with me. Bless you for the light you shed. You are treasured and revered as a gem of this universe. Best wishes and love from, Elizabeth ODonovan.

      Wonderful, Elizabeth! That is simply wonderful. I am so glad I could be a part of your transformation! Yes, it is easy to hold onto our past “financial selves,” but it can also be easy to let them go once we are ready to step into an abundant, love-filled space. There is so much more to us than money! Money is simply a tool we can use to achieve our destinies, and with that mental framework, it is an energy we can embrace wholeheartedly! We can finally let go of all that ego-minded sense of guilt, etc. — All the best to you in your newly abundant, happy life! ~ Caroline
