Your Great Wall

Where is your Great Wall?

Where do you keep yourself separate from everything and everyone else?
Or where in your life do you put up a barrier to feel safe, secure, but alone?

We all have them.

When Did This Wall Show Up?

We learned to do this as we grew up in a world where everyone around us had them.
As children, we internalize what we see and feel and observe in the people around us. You know that you have seen a child mimic a parent's behavior. Well, we do this to some extent with everything that we experience when we are those young sponges learning how to be in the world.

But as adults, we have a choice to notice and examine these assumptions, beliefs and habits, and from there to choose new ones. The first step is to notice them.

If you make the intention to be open to seeing some of your walls or beliefs, there are plenty of opportunities in our day to day lives to find them.

So Now What?

So when we notice a wall, that's our chance to become fascinated with how it appears in our life. It helps if we can look at it without judging it or trying to change it. We can try to just notice it and what it is telling me. We can notice what effect it has in your life.

Just seeing it is often enough to dissolve it.
For tougher walls, it can take seeing it several times and just gently seeing how it no longer serves you.

And it takes FAITH. It takes trust that the world is a friendly place, and that Spirit is FOR us.

So if we remember that Spirit is in, through, around and for us, this can be enough to start melting the walls. For me, it is an ongoing process of dissolving the layers and revealing the Wholeness and Light within.

How About You?

Do you notice places where you are walled off?
Do you have a process or a phrase that helps you at those times?

Making Friends with Money

Have you made friends with money or do you stress about it?

Here are two exercises you can do that I have heard in just about every workshop about money consciousness. I'd love to hear what insights they bring you.

What are some of your beliefs about money? 

Do any of these sound familiar?

1. Money doesn't grow on trees.
2. You have to work hard to make money.
3. There is never enough money.
4. A penny saved is a penny earned.
5. Save for a rainy day.
6. I will never be wealthy.

And on and on. What are some of your beliefs about money? Is money your friend or an elusive dream?

What is your earliest memory about money?

Relax and think back. Can you remember an early memory about money?
Remember your thoughts and feelings that happened then, and what you decided was true about money. Is that still true in your mind or in your life? How does that affect the way you use money now?

If you need more education on using money wisely, there are plenty of programs out there to help you with budgeting, spending, saving.

If you want to change your feelings and beliefs about money, start to imagine yourself with more money. Imagine that money loves you. Imagine that money is attracted to you and likes being near you. Start making friends with money, and it just might make a difference in how much you have.

How About You?

Are you friends with money?
Do you have a story about increasing your income or getting out of debt or a dream that money helped you realize?
