Day 22 – 30 Days of Earth – Money, That’s What I Want!

Money Money Money!

Are you happy with your possessions,  job and income?   Earth is about the material world.  It is the part of you the checks the bank balance, divides the restaurant check exactly when dinning with friends or keeps more food in the pantry then what you need.    Do you keep you piggy bank in a special place knowing that if you ever need an emergency fund you will take out your hammer and crack it open?   That is Earth!

Earth runs the risk of being controlled by money as opposed to controlling money.   Earth wants the facts – it wants to know what the results will be, how long is it going to take, and how much money is it going to cost.   Earth is the little voice in your head that has you living in fear when you think about money.  It is easy to avoid listening to that little voice.  The result what a world of scarcity would be like is what drives this fear our lives.   Fear of losing our job, thinking we will not be able to provide for our family and so on.   Fear is very destructive.  It convinces us we are living on the edge making it very difficult to persuade us to take the plunge and let our money work for us. Instead, we might watch the lifestyles of the rich and famous and wonder why we don’t have all of those material goodies.   Or we get frustrated and blame others or ourselves for what we don’t have when our thoughts go to not having enough money.

Earth is where your money consciousness resides.  Earth is often the banker, the accountant and the one counting the pennies.    They might even be the one who is busy helping everyone prosper.  With some simple shifts it can become more natural to experience harnessing money and having it work for you.  Imagine being liberated and in control.  Instead of working for money, aim to get to a stage where money works for you!  The aim is to move up the value chain of life – not up an income bracket.  Shifting your expectations and understanding of the term abundance is important for Earth to come into balance.   There are many examples of abundance.  Putting those in the equation will help to create a different relationship with the mighty buck.   Today make a list of all of the abundance you see in your life.

Create an Intention

Reflect on the following questions: 

  • What are your thoughts on working for money vs. learning to create abundance yourself?
  • What are the arenas where you are willing and trust the natural flow of abundance and wealth in your life?

Next set a personal intention for what you want – create a visual and each night before you go to bed spend time visualizing your dream.

Day 13 – 30 Days of Earth – What’s Going On In There?

Material Possessions

To manifest your hearts desires you must BE what your heart desires.

This week we will explore some of the shadow’s of the element of earth.

Earth often exaggerates the need for material possessions and physical resources.  To bring your Earth into better balance it is important to start at ground zero and explore the difference between a need and a want.   Do you feel your body getting tight when you worry about not receiving what you need?  Is your mind in a panic thinking about what you would do if you didn’t get what you need?   Or maybe you are the one who has taught yourself to go with out.  This is one way we don’t honor the element of Earth.   The Earth is abundant and every giving.  It is our human patterns and action that create the experience of lack and scarcity.

Earth is the element that can get over active in hording and saving for a rainy day.   My Mother, who was a child during depression, always keeps everything — I mean everything. I remember having to neatly fold holiday wrapping paper so we could use it again next year.   This year as my siblings and I were helping her begin the process of down sizing her house when we came across the box of neatly folded holiday wrapping paper, still waiting for the day when we will need it.

On the other hand, out of balance earth might be living under the belief that he who dies with the most toys wins.  The question is what are you going to do with all those toys while you are living?

So here is what I suggest.  Lets change how you look at material possessions and resources by dropping the words NEED and WANT and using the words SUSTAIN and ENTERTAIN.  How different that sounds and feels!   So today start a new list using the definitions below.

Sustain:  to strengthen physically or mentally, help, support, encourage, assist, hearten, preserve and nurture

Entertain: to provide with amusement, feed, divert, delight, cheer, charm, occupy, play, please and absorb

Write down what you come up with and post it on your refrigerator so you can look at it often.   Just the practice of reminding yourself how you sustain your life and entertain yourself will help you in adjusting your own habits and tendencies around scarcity so you can have peace of mind and experience integrity with yourself, your partner, and those in your life.

I encourage you start each day envisioning your ideal lifestyle with an intention about abundance.  Abundance thinking is about remaining connected to dreams with the understanding that all that is need will be provided.

Intention

My life is filled with unfailing abundance.  
I experience abundance and prosperity each day.
