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.

We’ve all come in contact with people who constantly complain about something.They constantly look for the negative in every situation and of course voice it out loud, whether to a person or on social media.
It seems their newsfeed is just one terrible thing after another happening in their life or just life in general.
You know why that is?
It’s not bad luck.
It’s what they’re attracting to themselves that’s causing it.
It’s because they keep thinking and SAYING the negative things that come to their mind.
Life is what they’re projecting it to be.
If you think that you’re broke, sick, tired and stupid – you will be!
You are what you think you are and you are what you say you are.
No one thinks your humble staying broke.
You’re not showing humility by being poor.
It’s not “good stewardship” to be a cheap ass.
Straight up. Truth Bomb.
Good people, good jobs, good opportunities are attracted to people who are joyful and hopeful.
If you’re gripped on to every single penny you have like it could be your last, there’s not much joy and hope in that.
Do you know what real prosperity is?
It’s not just being rich or having large monetary value.
There are plenty of rich people who are spiritually poor in life.
They work a million hours around the clock and they might have a lot in the bank, but they aren’t prosperous.
That’s trading time for money and health.
True prosperity is a condition. It’s a state of being and well-being.
It starts with your thinking.
You’ll never be prosperous if you got a lot of stinking thinking going on.
If you’re walking around announcing gloom and doom all the time, you’re attracting more of it.
So How Can You Attract Success and Happiness?
First things first, you need to be aware of what it is that you’re allowing to take up space in your thought life.
“You can’t keep a bird from flying over your head, but you can keep it from landing there and building a nest.” – Kennith E. Hagin
Your mind is SO important to your business yet so many just overlook it and put themselves to work every day without ever giving any attention or care to their thoughts and words.
If you want to have a better life, you need to take captive your thoughts and words.
I’m not saying that there will not be times in life when you feel like speaking forth negative thoughts and emotions, but these are the times you have to exercise faith and self control.
Don’t allow your thoughts to rule you and don’t be hung by your own tongue!
Take your focus off the negative situation.
There are lots of ways you can take your focus off negativity….
- Meditate quietly
- Read something upbeat, positive and soul lifting.
- Watch something motivational
- Singing – sing to your favorite music.
- Make a list of what you’re thankful for
- Take a walk, swim, nap
There are also a lot of ways you can fuel the fire of your negative emotions and thoughts…
- Thinking more
- Speaking out negativity
- Criticizing yourself and others
- Work harder
- Try solving the problems with logic
DO NOT GIVE ATTENTION TO NEGATIVE THOUGHTS!
Don’t entertain them, don’t think about them, don’t try to solve every problem that pops in there.
If you will take your focus off the negative and start redirecting your thoughts towards things more positive, you’ll start to see a difference in the reality you’re manifesting around you.
When you start speaking positive affirmations about your health, finances and the things around you – the things around begin to respond to it.
You attract that which you think and speak.
You’re putting vibes out there and their returning back to you what you put out.
Silence the negative thoughts.
Start focusing on what you do want to see happen and start speaking it!
Don’t allow anything contrary to what you’re believing for make a nest in your head.
Don’t allow anything contrary to what you’re believing for come out of your mouth.
The negative words are the fruit of the negative root in your thoughts.
If you’ll start taking the time to take captive your thoughts by reading, meditating and speaking words of affirmation over yourself and business, you’ll start seeing your life head in a more positive and prosperous direction.
You’re going to have thoughts anyway…
You’re going to say words anyway….
Stop. Think. Redirect.
I’m not telling you not acknowledge the facts, but you can counter them with “Hey I’ve got this issue in front of me, but I know these things always work out in the end, so I’m not going to spend my energy worrying about it”
You’ll find that you’ll be in the right place at the right time and encountering the right people when you start projecting more positive vibes.
Things will work out.
You’ll start attracting all the abundance and happiness you could ever ask for when you take captive your thoughts and words that you’re speaking!
ACTION STEP: write this down on a 3 x 5 note card. “I refuse to speak forth anything contrary to what I’m believing for”
