Choose To Evolve. Choose Love. Be In Gratitude
The quote by C.S. Lewis really hit home about that. The one example I remember the most, because it surprised me was my attitude around money. I had learned when the movie “The Secret” came out years ago, about being in gratitude that I had the money to pay for my expenses. They suggested writing in the memo line of your check “thank you” or make a heart or something similar. I try to do that on my checks. Sometimes I forget, but most of the time the attitude of gratitude is there.
I don’t know when it had shifted but it felt like the beginning of a wealth mindset had shifted into place. That the energy of money was flowing into my space and back out, with no discord or anxiety. No worries. It was just flowing by to meet not only my daily needs, but hundreds of other peoples daily needs.
It is vital in our lives that we take the time to contemplate our life. To see what transformations are taking place in our life day by day. The little changes add up to spurts of growth. When we were children we loved to stand up against the wall and draw a new line across the top of our head to measure how much we have grown. We celebrated every single inch. We need to celebrate with the same exuberance our internal growth.
Take the example of the growth of any plants seed. In order for the plant to grow, the seed has to be broken open. The same is true for us. Make no mistake about it – enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.
The old beliefs of “money is the root of all evil”, or “there is never enough paycheck for the month”, or “money doesn’t grow on trees” and so on – all of those beliefs had to die for my mindset to shift and change. It happened one small shift at a time. I learned to manifest changes little by little. Each time one block of the old belief was let go, until finally the whole building of that belief had been dismantled, and in its place was a flowing river. Money flows to me easily and freely.
The two basic motivating forces in our lives are fear and love. We fear when we have an attitude of lack. The old beliefs around money were from the fear of lack, of not enough to go around. Coming from a space of love, we “know” that there is plenty of money for everyone. It flows freely in and back out. Instead of hyperventilating out of fear, we inhale slowly feeling the love and exhale slowly savoring the gratitude for the abundance that flows freely to us.
Seems like a pretty cool place to live life from!
