Money money money, must be funny in a rich mans world.
I had lots of money. Living at home, working a high paying corporate job, saving. I was killing it. I had more money than I knew what to do with. So I invested. Not in stocks or bonds or any of that fancy stuff. I invested in myself.
I invested in my passions.
I bought heaps of camera equipment, yoga clothes, paint, canvases.
I invested in my learning & soul growth.
I bought a yoga certification program, a life coaching program, a personal transformational development program.
I went ham and cheese [well not cheese because I’m vegan]!
I invested in my dream.
I bought a backpack, a plane ticket to New Zealand, a self-contained van and a ton of paint.
Now here I am. With two certifications. A nice ass camera. A brain full of skills. In New Zealand. With a crazy painted van. Working at a yoga retreat center. Living the absolute dream.
With absolutely no money.
I have never been so happy, never been so free, never been so fulfilled.
I now know that money does not buy happiness. It is a tool though. To help get you closer to your dreams. But the dreams should not be about money.
The dreams should be about what fulfills you, what’s important to you, what you value.
What do you dream for? What do you want more than anything in the world?
You can have it. It is possible. You deserve it. You are allowed that.
I have it, everything I could ever want and more.
No money, but a consciously created dream life with unlimited possibilities.
I’ve gone from “having it all” to having nothing but feeling like I have more than I could ever want. All my “stuff” fits in a 50L backpack. I have 5 outfits that I wear over and over again. My van is my home, my transport and my life. I have the support of the universe guiding me.
Now that I have hit broke bottom, I realize what I really actually need money for. First, food. Second, fuel. And third… not much else. I stopped washing my hair, shaving, wearing makeup. That all saved a lot of money there. I guess the third part is for miscellaneous things. Like toothpaste [I’m not that hippy I’d stop brushing my teeth… come on now.]
The other thing I want money for is to know that I am making a difference in the world. In peoples lives. Money is a value. You get money for the value you’re bringing into the world for the work you do.
I want to bring value. I want to feel abundant in all areas of my life. I am open, receptive and ready for an abundance of money so I can know my impact.
I went from one extreme of “having it all” to another extreme of really having it all without the money. I CAN have both. Money is not capitalism, materialism. It’s what you do with the money, why you want it, and how you get it that matters.
Money is energy. My energy is powerful. My energy believes I am deserving and worthy of attracting money into my life. I attract money easily and effortlessly. I am abundant in all areas of my life.
I am open, receptive, ready, and so it is.
