Financial Freedom is NOT about your Bank Account

@

Everywhere we turn someone tells us that once we achieve a certain dollar amount in passive income or savings or cash in the bank, then we can relax because we have finally arrived at that ultimate destination – Financial Freedom.

It couldn’t be further from the truth. We could have $100 in the bank or $100 million in the bank and still not feel financially-free. Why? Because financial freedom has nothing to do with the dollar amount in our bank account.

Financial freedom comes from what we believe about this idea called Money. If we believe that money is limited, scarce, and we have to compete and struggle for it, we will never be or feel financially-free.

Let’s use water to explain this. We have a water faucet in the kitchen. Whenever we need water, we turn it on and it delivers water. And it never runs dry. So we may not have a glass of water in our hands right now, but we know that we can access water whenever we need it. We don’t believe water is limited or scarce and that we have to struggle for it. So, we are “water-free.”

The same concept applies to money. Let’s say we need a certain amount of money to purchase a desire. And we don’t have this dollar amount in our bank account at this moment. In this situation, there are 2 types of people and subconscious reactions:

One of these two people believes he can never get the money he needs. The second person believes he absolutely can get this money or any future money he needs at its right time. Both people may have the exact same dollar amount in each of their bank accounts. But only the second person is financially-free.

The individual who learns how to turn on the money faucet when money is needed is financially-free. She doesn’t need to store the money in a bank account to be or feel financially-free. She simply walks over to her inner faucet and turns it on.

That’s real Financial Freedom.

Money is Free

@

Money is free. Always has been and always will be.

The Source that physically expresses itself as money is available to you and me and everyone, now and forever. So if you ever lose your job or business, or if you lose money in any other way, simply connect to the Source that expresses money and allow it to create more money.

The Source is free.

How do you connect to this Source? Be stillness. Be silence. Be Source.

Empty Your Mind

@

No words will be used here to explain this statement “Empty Your Mind.” Let each of us simply think about it. Then let’s try to practice it using whichever method comes naturally to each of us. Whatever feels right, flow with it.

Any additional words from me may, in fact, clutter your mind. I won’t share with you what this phrase means to me. I won’t share with you how I use it in my life. I wish for you to find out what it means to you and how you can practice it regularly.

So that’s all for today… “Empty Your Mind.”

Spiritual Alchemy – Uncovering our Inner Gold

@

Alchemy is the ancient tradition of turning base metals, such as lead, into gold or silver. This was performed by removing the impurities in the base metals in order to produce gold.

(There is so much more one could cover on this ancient tradition but for the purpose of this conversation, this is all we need to know.)

What’s Spiritual Alchemy? Turning lead into gold is a metaphor for human Spiritual transformation. Over time, we accumulate impurities, that is, we accumulate beliefs from our society’s programming. Beliefs that we don’t even realize we now hold. Beliefs that are not our true Spirit. We believe what they believe. We all think alike. As such, we live like everybody else – unique human beings with unique gifts who suppress these gifts in order to live in the same average mediocrity as everybody else.

Spiritual Alchemy is removing these programmed beliefs in order to get back to the gold we were born with. It is about reconnecting with our unique gifts and sharing this uniqueness with the world. 

Not all the programmed beliefs are bad, of course. But we must each find out which beliefs we hold and whether they are actually our beliefs or our friends’, family’s, or society’s beliefs. Then we must establish whether these beliefs help us or cripple us.

How do we do this? Question. Question every “should” or “have to” that pops into the Mind. When the Mind says to us “You should” or “You have to,” ask “Why?”

Why should I? Why do I have to? Is this me speaking or is this my parent speaking? Is this me speaking or is this my friends speaking? Is this me speaking or is this the media speaking?

Question everything. Soon enough, we begin to shed what is not our voice. We begin to shed the impurities, the lead. We then begin to hear our voice that was buried underneath the impurities. We uncover that beautiful treasure we were born with. We uncover our gold.

We are Spiritual Alchemists. The gold is here for the taking.

What do we really have to lose?

@

Steve Jobs’ passing today got me thinking about a few words I strung together about death and its motivational power in “The Wealth in Questions” as such:

“The fears that we cultivate regarding losing our job, money, house, car, clothes, respect from peers, and the long list of other daily human worries are insignificant. When people come face to face with death, they wake up and realize that all that stuff really doesn’t matter. The prospect of death brings this very simple concept to life.”

What do we really have to lose?
