What does it mean to be wealthy?
Does it mean flash car, huge house, holidays in the tropics, not a care in the world?
Of course, being wealthy can give you all those things and more, but if you are not financially flush and living above your means then being wealthy can feel like a pipe dream, something you long for and something you see as unobtainable.
Spirituality and money are generally two subjects deemed poles apart. However, your emotional relationship with money and wealth is an indicator of how you feel about money and how you feel about yourself. If you feel non-spiritual towards money then it is time to connect and re-harmonise your emotions, in line with your spiritual values.
Money and wealth, be it an abundance or lack, can create a positive or negative reaction, radiating from your very core. A warm fuzzy glow inside, a sickly pit of dread rising from your stomach, or perhaps anger and frustration spreading through your entire body. The emotions you feel will give you a clear indication of how your relationship with money and wealth affects your spirit.
For the purposes of this article, I am going to focus on the negative relationships with money and how you can inject a positive, more spiritual money mindset.
Creating a healthy relationship with money is the first step on the road to a happy financial partnership. Not opening your monthly bank statement or checking your balance on-line, through fear of what you may find, will only escalate any anxiety and worry – which has a detrimental effect on your emotional and, in turn, physical health. The key to gaining a good relationship with money is total transparency, knowing exactly where your money goes and knowing your commitments and limits.
By micro managing your finances you are empowering your emotional self and, once you are regularly applying this money management system, you will feel far more relaxed and in control.
Now it is time to take it to the next level.
You know exactly what bill needs paying and by when, you have set aside your weekly “pocket-money” and your little luxuries allowance is ready and waiting.
There is a little left over!
Do you: a) Spend it quick !? or b) Save it?
This is where your resolve is tested. This is where you need to exercise constraint and self-determination.
You see, in order to create an abundance of anything you must first value and respect what you currently, already, have. I am guilty of frivolous spending and I will, given the opportunity, add to my wardrobe. Nevertheless, I also save a little every single month. For no other reason but to show my appreciation for the money I have and I watch it grow every single month.
If you take the new principles of quantum physics; money is energy, the act of receiving money is an exchange of energy and the way we feel about money is a radiation of energy therefore, in order to manifest more money we need to omit positive energy (or feelings) we have towards money.
Are you still with me?
Now, given the above analogy, really think about how you feel about money.
How would you feel if your pay packet was empty on pay-day or a client ignores your request to pay for your services?
You would feel pretty annoyed and no doubt you would put a large degree of energy into getting paid. Why? Because you deserve and expect it! You work hard and want payment on time, every time. However, the energy motivation is anger and fear, as opposed to the real value you put on yourself and the money you receive.
The “trick” is to remove all jealousy, angst, worry and fear, you place on money and wealth, with a new-found respect and value for those who have money and show restraint and thrift with the money you have. If you win a small amount on the lottery – put it away, if you get a pay rise - put the extra cash into a savings account, if you receive a cheque for your services and had not factored it in to your monthly budget - bank it and forget about it.
The universe can move mountains to get you what you want but you must show that you are worthy to receive, by acting with an attitude of pure gratitude and reverence.
“Fear is not real.
The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future.
It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist.
That is near insanity.
Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.”
~ Will Smith, After Earth
You are an individual.
You have a completely different energy to those around you.
The people you meet and attract into your life are drawn specifically to you.
Your energy, and what you have to offer, is completely and utterly unique to you.
Do what you do, as you are you, and it’s what you want to do.
…Free yourself by being yourself.
How many of you have followed the Law of Attraction and/or The Secret? If you are reading or following my blog then you have probably delved into the plethora of Law of Attraction books and YouTube videos, on abundance and manifesting.
How is that working for you?
Are you getting everything you desire?
I understand the Law of Attraction process, as taught by Ester Hicks and Abraham Hicks. I understand the principles described by Rhonda Byrne in The Secret. Admittedly, when you read through the pages it does make you feel pretty good. But as the hours tick by, and all the trials of life, the ups and downs, you’re stuck in traffic, back to work, cleaning the house… Before you know it you have left that happy space (that place of feeling that you can do absolutely anything, be who you want, do what you want to do), and you have filed those words and feelings to the deep dark recesses of your mind and go back to ‘life as usual’.
It is tough, it is hard, it is difficult. But there is another way, one that gives you the support and guidance – on a 1-2-1 group basis – and one that I have signed up for!
I have booked myself on a brand new course called Accessing Your Infinite Keys to Success, with Chiara Irvine. The course is pretty unique, in that you have full access to your tutor, you have access to a secure, members only Facebook group, and you are fully supported by a live interactive call with your tutor every week! Now correct me if I am wrong, I don’t ever recall seeing a course like that ever! Yes, there are many life coaches and mentors out there, that work with and teach the Law of Attraction to their clients, but as you are working with them on an exclusive, 1-2-1 basis it can cost an absolute fortune! This course is different. It is affordable, it is doable, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
Just to give you a few finer points to the Accessing Your Infinite Keys to Success course. It is a 30 day course, taught in a small group. It is fully assisted, you can ask questions and recap on lessons and classes, so you are not left puzzled by anything. The course content is sent to you every week and you have a live, interactive call with Chiara and your fellow course attendees – which is great, as other members may come up with questions you may not have thought to ask! You also have access to exclusive, course only meditations, to help you on your road to success, AND Chiara offers every course member healing, to help ‘supercharge’ your abundance generating energy.
Granted, I know the tutor, Chiara Irvine, and I have done for many years. Wholeheartedly dedicated to helping people achieve their career and life goals – by working smarter rather than harder – Chiara helps you to tap into your intuitive side. This connects you to who you really are and what you really want out of life. She teaches you how to use the power of channeling specific manifesting guides, to take you to a much higher level, and has taught an astonishing number of people – in sell out workshops, talks and 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring – so, she is pretty awesome!
But be quick! there are only a couple of spots left for the next course – as you would expect from an expert teacher of Infinite Success!
The words seemed to flow from pen to paper with such speed that it made me ponder, just a little.
I am not saying it is a channelled message but given the ease in which it formed, I still feel I should lend some remark to the energy and power to the written words.
The narrative is presented in the third person, rather than me directly talking to you, the reader, which I also find a little odd…perhaps I am supposed to be detached in some way…or may be it was a personal teaching, for me to understand.
Well, here it is in all its unedited shortness:
Initiating Internal Power
Giving people back their power is about lending them the tools to provoke meaningful, life changing questions of themselves. It is about placing the onus back on them, in a guiding way.
Instead of telling them what to do you are re-empowering their creative thought patterns, for them to guide themselves, by reconnecting with their own intuition and inner guidance system.
It gives them the freedom to search their own inner self, to create the answers to those burning, all important, life-purpose questions. Thus, allowing them to understand their own thought patterns and feelings.
By allowing them to come to their own personal conclusions and therefore, creating their own decisions – through unbiased guidance and helping them to see things from all perspectives – they will feel their internal power strengthen and see the never-ending possibilities and opportunities available to them.

By going with your gut, and listening to your inner self, you can feel happier and strengthen your instinctive, true self.
Just by tuning in to your intuition, and going with what feels right, you can further increase your body’s happy chemicals.
For example: You have a life-purpose decision to make. You have spent hours analysing your options and have come to a grinding, tiresome halt.
Frustrating isn’t it?
Any excitement you felt, going into the venture, has been diminished or even lost forever.
But what if you did not spend all your time (and energy) pouring through the minute little details and you just went for it?
Would it feel exciting, inspired, exhilarating and categorically the right decision?
Granted, not everything in life is soo simple and making potentially rash decisions could have detrimental, short or even long-term effect.
However, apply it to something personal or creative………Something that fires your motivation………Something that you have always dreamed of………
Research, conducted by the University College of London, shows that when we have high level of feel good chemicals in our bodies, we are able to make decisions much faster - by going with gut instincts - relating to how it would make us feel emotionally.
Furthermore, by combining other “happy chemical” triggers into the equation you could in fact create cataclysmic and inspired choices to change your life.
Listening to spine tingling music is just one trigger to induce an exquisitely happy hormone - known as dopamine.
By “spine tingling” I mean music that rocks you to the core, that creates emotion deep within you. Music that gives you goose bumps, butterflies in your stomach and energizes you. It is already proven that school children who listen to their favourite music, whilst doing their homework, complete it much faster than sitting in silence (and believe me I quoted those results tirelessly as a teenager!).
Certain foods, such as high quality cocoa, leafy greens, almonds, walnuts and bananas also increase the feel good chemical, serotonin. Although sugary, processed carbohydrates can give you a quick mood lifting fix the effects are not sustained for any beneficial period of time. Therefore it is better to choose slow release carbs, such as oats, nuts and whole grains. Good quality protein, found in avocado, oily fish and seeds are super foods for raising your spirits.
I know it’s boring but cutting right down on caffeine and alcohol, which actually decreases your serotonin levels, really does help. This, combined with any form of exercise, aids restful and invaluable beauty sleep – which also lowers your need for comfort snacking.
It should not feel too much of a chore to work a few little changes into your lifestyle. And who knows, all these happy feel good hormones running around your system may even kick-start a whole new life and a whole new you!
