What is Money Anyway?

What is money anyway but an artificial means of exchange? Money itself has no value. We give it energy and value. Do you worry about not having enough money, yet you are concerned about being evil therefore you don’t do what you can to have money come into your life.

I want you to close your eyes and think about how it felt the last time you worried about having enough money? Was it when a bill arrived or you wanted to buy something or your significant other or child asked for something you couldn’t buy? Get that feeling inside. Where is it? Now increase it. Intensify it. Make it bigger. Be overwhelmed by it? Own the feelings. Does the feeling get more real or does it begin to feel less and less important.

OK. Now. Who do you care about a lot? Think about that person. Make that feeling get bigger and bigger. Intensify it. Be enveloped in the feelings. Does the feeling get more real. Does it feel good? Does it begin to feel more and more important? There is a difference in the two.

Think about having lots and lots of money. Think of it falling from the sky or think of it piled high on your bed and you are laying in it and that there was an infinite supply. You know that if you take out $100, $200 comes back and the pile continues to grow. Doesn’t that feel good. You are not evil in this feeling. You are not being selfish because there is an infinite supply of money for everyone. You are not taking from someone to have the cash. Look at the world around you. More money is created as it is needed. Believe that this is an abundant universe and God is willing to give you all you need and want.

Take the energy out of money by thinking about what you truly want. Do you want to be happy, loved, and secure in knowing that if you have a need, it can be filled. What is it that you truly want. You may not want a huge house. You may want to remodel what you have or move to a nicre place. You may want to send missionaries to far away places or even down the block. You may want to give a homeless person the opportunity to come off the street. You may want to be able to send your child to a better school to be educated. It is not about the money. It is about what you can do with it.

Going back to money itself. There have been many forms of exchange. The basic form is, I clean your house and you mow my lawn. This is bartering. This was the first means of exchange. However as we began to travel to other areas, there needed to be a means of exchanging our goods and services for someone else’s good and services. This allowed you to acquire what you needed even if what you did or offered was not of interest to the seller. Money had to be of manageable size and shape. Thus came the use of arrowheads, animal hides, salt, butter, cacao beans, beads and tobacco leaves. Remember, Manhattan Island was bought for a load of cloth, beads, hatchets, and other odds and ends, then worth 60 Dutch guilders or about $72 in today’s dollars.

Objects of metal (gold and silver) could be used. The weight would be the factor in deciding value. You have heard the phrase ‘worth one’s salt,’ or ‘worth one’s weight in gold.’’ Centuries ago salt was so valuable that many people used to have part of their pay in salt. Today we use paper or coins or credits in our bank accounts.

If you have an idea and that idea could make you thousands or even millions of dollars because it helps others or solves a problem or makes life easier, there is no scripture that says you shouldn’t do it because it will make you a lot of money. Nor do you have to give the profits away either. What you do, is your decision. However, I would recommend that you give 10 percent to charity, 10 percent to your savings, 30 percent put away to cover taxes thus living off 50% of your earnings. In fact, strive to do that today.

OK, you aren’t making enough to live off of 50% of your total income. In that case my suggestion would be to begin to find a way to give a small percentage to charity or your church. Start with 1% to you and 1% to charity. As you begin to put your financial house in order increase to 2% until you reach the 10% and you are living off 50%. You will find that you will begin to think differently about buying another pair of shoes or clothes or going out to a fancy dinner when you can cook the same thing at home.

You will find that when you have an emergency such as needing tires or your child chipped a tooth or you need to repair something you will have your savings available. You then will not be borrowing with high interest. You will not feel panic for not having enough money. It takes desire and removal of your limiting beliefs to make this happen.

By the way would you like to become your own lender. That is borrowing from yourself and paying yourself interest? I am not talking about borrowing from your 401K. If so, I want you to give Kevin Collins from Personal Economics Group a call and tell him I sent you to learn about recycling your money. His number is 972.822.5280 or email him at KCollins@PEGplanning.com. I use this system and it works to protect and grow my assets and provide for my families future.

Imagine being in a store of beautiful things. Ask yourself the question: “If I could have anything I wanted from this store what would I like to come into my life?” You will look around; decide what you wanted or not. If you find something, you don’t look at the price because it doesn’t matter. Say, “I don’t know how this is part of my life with the help of the Holy Spirit. I only know it is so NOW and I am fulfilled.” You are creating an opening for it or something better to come to you at the price you are willing to pay. Here on the blog under Gratitue Log there is the story of Begonia’s. This tells how something can just fall into your life unexpectantly.

Further down in Chapter 6 looking at verses 17-19 I read:
17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 18 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. 19 In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

It does not say that they had to become poor or give up all their riches but to do good deeds and to be generous and share. Being or having riches is not the issue. It is your attitude and behavior that is important. Have abundance in all areas of your life with gratfullness and thanksgiving.

Here are several One Command’s that will assist in making the leap in understanding that money is not evil and the desire to have your heart’s desire satisfied is not wrong. What is wrong is lying, cheating, stealing, robbing, or any form of dishonest behavior to gain riches.

I don’t know how I increase the flow of cash and know infinite ways for money to flow into my life. I only know I do now and I am grateful and fulfilled.

I don’t know how I put away at least 1% or more to myself and my charity of everything that comes into my life and I don’t know how joy and happiness comes to me easily and effortlessly with the help of the Holy Spirit. I only know I do now and I am grateful and fulfilled.

I don’t know how I know that my request has arrived and I receive it with gratitude. I only know I do now and I am grateful and fulfilled with the help of the Holy Spirit.

You can listen to a full meditation using these commands by going to http://blogtalkradio.com/commandingyourlife and playing the “The Root of Your Money Consciousness” episode.

According to your faith will it be done to you” Matthew 9:29 And it is so!
