There is nothing emptier than chasing money for its own sake.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with money.
We use money in our current society as a resource.
And I think if you feel driven to create more of that resource, then you want to follow that drive.
Ambition is a beautiful thing - I think it’s innately human and magnificent.
But the human heat of ambition is meant to fuel you to carry out your vision in the world from alignment.
Money is only one component of that.
Money is not the devil, but it’s not God either.
Money is not a saviour. It’s not a healer.
And, you can have money without prosperity.
This is how you can end up making money you never dreamed of making in your business and still feel out of alignment, lack of vitality and feel empty.
You can accumulate money doing many things with many skills and many talents. Once you get beyond some basic money mindset work, you can run with it and make money...
I choose to honour myself
Today I did some serious journaling - reflecting. I’ve felt blocked in some areas of my mind and heart and I knew the answer was to go within.
So within I went.
I recognized some areas that I was abandoning myself still. Quitting on myself ever so subtly.
I got honest. I cried. I wrote.
I wrote about how quitting on myself when I was so close to the result was a way for me to re-enact my mothers’ abandonment and neglect.
Her broken promises.
Like a reflection in the rear-view of being 10 again and waiting for two hours for my mom to pick me up outside the school, alone.
I remember the way the trees looked - like a dream. The emptiness I felt. I remember her finally showing up … no call to the school to let them know she’d be late - no idea when she’d show up… finally she’d come and I’d ask why… reaching again - for some acknowledgement… and she’d make some flippant, dismissive comment...
