Money as an Idea-2-Expression
The more passion that is used to express the idea, the greater the impact. The more passion that is used to express the idea, the greater the impact. See what I mean?
This impact can be positive or negative, depending on how I view the idea and how it fits into my perception of the world.
The above illustrates the basic spiritual principle that ideas increase by being given away.
This leads to an important question: What ideas about money are you teaching yourself every day? When I was growing up, I taught myself to fear money and hate money. What ideas about yourself and your potential for success are you teaching yourself every day? This is the basis of many self-help programs. I will give you a simple exercise, Exercise 2: Affirming your money ideas (see below).
Exercise 1: Communication awareness.
Principle: A primary motivator for human communication is attempting to strengthen an idea or to convince oneself of the truth of an idea. I recommend that you check this out for yourself. With this awareness, see how many of the words you hear every day fit into this category. Secondly and more importantly, see how many of the words you speak every day fit into this category. When I say words, I mean the ideas expressed by the words, the content of the communication. You can evaluate this using percentage if you want.
Exercise 2: Affirming your money ideas.
Once you have become aware of the spectrum of ideas that you have been teaching yourself from exercise 1, now focus on what you express daily regarding money. If you do not notice very many money ideas, you may want to look for repressed ideas. Ask yourself how you view money. Do you see it as fluid? Do you feel fear? Lack? Anxiety? Hatred? Conflict? Guilt? Undeserving? Excluded (socially)? How do you regard people with more money than you?
Identifying negative emotions is the first step to letting them go. Next, you want to develop positive affirmations expressing ideas that you would like to have about money. Then, tell yourself these ideas every day. This is simple.
