The Spirit of Money - Part 3

The wise who are trained and disciplined
Shine out like beacon lights
They earn money just like a bee gathers honey without harming the flowers
And they let it grow as an ant hill slowly gains in heights
With wealth wisely gained
They use it for the benefit of all.
~Digha Nikaya



Two weeks ago, we began this series with a reality check intended to help us discover and acknowledge our financial patterns.

Last week, we talked about some practical ways to change those patterns and replace old habits with new ones.

This week, we want to share a vision with you. Financial freedom is not just about personal security and wealth. When we see the connection between our purpose in the world and the spirit of money, our financial goals can reach beyond personal gain into a context that includes our families, our communities, and the world. In other words, our financial maturity creates the capacity to be fulfilled and give back. Thinking of it this way, helps us to see a bigger picture and a compelling reason to keep building.

Sounds good, right? Well, in order for this perspective to actually play out in our actions, we must internalize this thinking and develop the conviction to support it. Conviction is our constant reminder of why we are doing something. So when temptation presents itself, we can zoom in on that bigger picture - that vision of our calling and the abundance we could share with the world. We can become aware of the role money plays in our lives and put it to work for meaningful activities.

Reflect and save these affirmations to keep your mind and spirit focused on abundance.  Click here to print out a copy for your inspiration board.  Just click on File, then Print (PDF).

Money is simply energy that I exchange for what it is that I need.
There is plenty more where that came from.
My understanding of the connection between money and soul can bringer deeper meaning to my financial life.
I have abundance of all good things in my life, including my finances, because I believe that I am abundant.
I honor myself when I stick to my financial goals.
I recognize that I confuse the Universe when I ask for something, but do not take the necessary steps in the right direction.
I deserve prosperity.
I have plenty of time and money.
The Universe showers abundance upon me.
As I express my needs, they are met.
As I give, I receive, receive and receive.
There is limitless supply and it is mine.

Thanks for these affirmations. Although I will probably struggle with the "I have plenty of time and money" one. I always feel like I need more hours in the day. Lol!
