Abundance is closely connected to the act of giving. You can imagine money as a stream, like a river that flows. In fact, we need to understand money as an entity if we want to be good friends with money, if we want to be in the stream of abundance.
What about you, do you feel rich and abundant? Or do you feel that something stops you swimming in the stream of abundance?
Yes it is about our mindset, we need to learn how to think in terms of money. We need to take care of money as if we’re taking care of our beloved. If you are not caring, loving and generous enough with your partner, he or she will run away. It’s the same with money. How we talk about money, how we think about money, how we behave towards money all influence our relationship with money.
Do you LOVE money? What does your partner do if you do love, do care and do give them attention? Probably s/he will come back to you. Money does the same thing.
So one of the aspects of the relationship with money is the act of giving. Are you happy to give? I mean to give without expectation of getting anything back. Simply do you know how to keep the stream flowing? Can you feel generous or give gifts with an open heart?
Some people try to stop the stream with the intention of having financial stability and keep money with them. Because they lose the trust that money will come back again. It takes courage to be able to invest part of your money in your future. For example, giving money to your relationship, to your company, to a project, to your children or simply to yourself.
And this way we let money grow, we don’t want to spend money, we want to invest money to let it grow and develop itself.
You can test yourself; you can test what kind of relationship with the energy of money you have. How easy or difficult is it to give a present to someone gratis, with no side agenda, just for your happiness and to keep the stream flowing.
If you’re interested to explore this I can give you a tool:
1.Give one thing to someone you really like. Look at your feelings while you’re buying or choosing the gift. Are you careful how much you invest in this person? Or do you feel generous and happy to invest energy into them?
2.Then give something to yourself, something that has value to you, something you’ve been thinking about, something that’s accessible for you and makes you feel nice. Is it easier to give to yourself or the other person?
3.And give one thing to a stranger, perhaps some of your belongings you may not need anymore but you think that person will find useful.
Throughout this exercise carefully observe if it’s easy for you to be generous and if it makes you happy or what kind of other thoughts are popping up. It will signify what kind of relationship you have with money.
