You relationship with money plays the Starring Role in Movie “Why do I not have enough?” That’s really not a movie, but seriously the relationship, beliefs and views you have around money are what keep it from you.
Most aren’t even aware they have a bad relationship with money. Seriously, it’s not something you think about, however you may be acutely aware that you do not seem to have enough of it. You think it’s luck, but luck has nothing to do with it.
If you don’t seem to ever have enough money, I can promise you, your relationship with money is broken.
Do you judge people with money or perhaps how people spend their money?
Maybe you have a strong belief that people on Food Stamps should not junk food?
Maybe you think that spending $50.00 bucks per person on dinner is foolish?
Or that preacher should work for free?
People with money are greedy and selfish!
This list goes on and on.
Next time you find yourself judging someone and how they spend their money, I hope that you will reflect back on this module and explore that judgement.
Do you think those that make millions are greedy or money hungry?
Now! What If We Flipped That Coin?
When you are always feeling like you don’t have enough, do you hold back?
Do you skimp, squander and hoard?
Do you calculate every transaction as a loss?
Do you not give to others out of a fear of not having enough for yourself later?
You can’t possibly give because you feel you don’t have enough for yourself, right?
Who is the greedy one now?
You keep it all for you because you fear you may not have enough tomorrow.
Keeping it to yourself can be judged as greedy too.
It works both ways.
Have you ever turned your back on a homeless person a holding a sign and pretended not to see them? Do you justify it to yourself as “well I can barely feed myself? OR They should go get a job?
The things that you judge in others, when you reflect it back, are usually things that you don’t like about yourself.
You call the rich greedy, when you are over there hoarding your own money. It’s the same thing.
Both could actually be judged as greedy.
It’s called the Shadow self.
So you stay up there on your high horse of judgment while you are living down in the ditches in oblivion that your judgement are blocking your abundance.
My Ocean Analogy
The ocean does not worry about running out of water.
It gives up so much water in the process called evaporation.
The water goes up into the clouds, the clouds get heavy and rains it back into the ocean.
It’s a cycle.
This same cycle pertains to money.
What would happen if the clouds decided,” oh we may not get any more water so we are just going to hold it here and not give rain.”
The ocean would dry up eventually and life would cease to exist.
This is how it is with money.
It’s nature, it’s the law, in everything in your life.
There is a natural flow and you my friend are the one blocking this flow.
You are the cloud scared to release the water for fear you may not get any more.
When you are dealing with the Infinite, you can never take more than your share!
Your Judgement and Beliefs!
[s3mv]Blogging Life Class Judgement and Beliefs.mp4,480,300,false,false[/s3mv]
Common Judgement and Beliefs about Money:
- there isn’t enough to go around
- some have more than their share or more than they need
- I can’t have more in this economy
- You must work hard to get money
- People that have a lot of money are greedy
- Money is evil
- You can’t be spiritual and have money at the same time
- Not having money is humble
A Belief is Just a Thought that You Have Been Thinking!
Your sense of worthiness and self acceptance and love are so very important. Others will value you about as much as you value yourself.

The Other Shoe to Drop!
Do you find yourself waiting for the other shoe to drop. Perhaps a bad thing that happened last time haunts you. If you have thoughts or expectations of something going wrong, most likely it’s because of the conditioning of your past.
I mean our past experiences are all we have to go on right? Much like all those things our parents and society has taught us, those judgmental thoughts and beliefs I have talked about, our past experiences are much the same. We allow them to condition us.
We don’t have to. We can let go of what happened last time and understand that it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen this time.

Desperation for Money
Have you ever been in a relationship with a needy person? They demand things, they want more from you. More time. More reassurance. Their insecurity in that relationship will drain you and you eventually leave.
It’s not different with money. When you chase after that security, the security leaves. You can’t chase money any more than you can chase after a man or a woman in a relationship. It will run in the other direction. Desperation is neediness. Neediness repels and does not attract.
What you need or think you need controls you. If you are in a place of needing money, you are in a place of lack mentality. When you are focused on your lack, you attract more of what you are focused on.
Oh I have so been there. I did things that I am not proud of from a place of desperation. Yet I have seen a beggar on the streets and looked down on him, while I myself was practically begging myself. Again, the shadow self. That thing that triggers us most exposes our similarity. But we remain in denial from a place I call ego.

I know I got pretty personal in those videos. My stories are the easiest way to relate what desperation does to your life. My friend I told you about in the second video came up with another solution out of her desperation. She moved her older brother in with them. So now her husband works two jobs, and her brother lives with them. Talk about added stress.
The Good news about my friend is she is becoming more aware of her thoughts around money. She comes over to my house for dinner every Friday night and we talk a lot. Last week $1500.00 just fell in her lap from an very unexpected source. A source she did not even think about or see coming!
I managed to convince myself that staying with a man that though I cared about, but wasn’t in love with was the right thing to do and was my solution. I didn’t even see it this way at the time. I was so happy I got my daughter back under my roof, yet I created a whole other set of problems.
When we seek solutions from desperation, the unresolved relationship with money will manifest and pop up in other areas of your life. You can’t find solutions from that place because you are still stuck on how. How as we discussed in a previous module is not as effective as tapping into your own intuition.Let go of how the money will come to you.
***Note, your blocks and unresolved issues around love can pop up in your money field and vice versa. Abundance is about way more than money.
