Today feels like a great day! On your way to work you head over to the bank. After withdrawing some money you see there wasn’t as much left in your account as you thought there would be. Good thing it’s only 3 days to payday.
As the day goes on you start to feel tired. You’ve been doing a lot of thinking about your financial situation. Here you are again 3 days before payday and there is nothing left! Feels like you can’t get the money together to buy a new vehicle which you so desperately need. There is no extra money for a holiday. More and more you are feeling drained!
Feeling tired and drained are ‘reactions’. Reactions are perfect in showing you inner conflict of some kind. What is causing the inner conflict – problem or life issue?
What is the difference between an everyday problem and a life issue? Are they the same thing?
Using the above example with money, problems are more specific type things you deal with in your day to day life. They could be things like the moment you hold cash in your hands it’s spent or gone…having to borrow a few dollars before payday – then paying it back on payday…deciding on where to eat based on your bank account balance. Problems could be a phase you are going through like having a hard time securing a loan or arguing about what to buy.
Life issues around money or finances tend to be more general – ongoing issues that seem to be around forever. Examples of this could be living behind the excuse of never having any money to do anything…feeling like you ‘never have enough’…always taking care of everyone else but yourself.
Behind the day to day problems you will find your ‘issues’!
Money issues give you many problems to walk through. Those problems won’t be the ‘money.’ Look past the ‘money’ and see what the issue is. It’s in highlighting the issue – in shifting your perception, that you will move through it and experience huge growth within yourself. You will experience feeling more empowered with money as opposed to being bothered about it every waking day.
Looking at this from a more ‘purposeful’ outlook, if you are on this earth to ‘walk through’ your life issues around money, ‘stuff around money’ will be put before you. Through that ‘stuff’ you will come to find your own truth of what money is for you!
Money is such a broad word which people give a lot of power to! If you give ‘power’ to money – that ‘almighty dollar’ and you are finding your truth about what you come to know money to be…it will be through your day to day life experiences that you learn and grow.
Problems or life issues…see them for what they are!
