Recognize and Change
From being around the age of seven, people are taught how to think about certain things including money. Basically, we are being programmed on how to think about money based on the social class we are coming from. That way the poor become poorer, and the rich become richer. The best way to recognize your relationship with your money is by looking at your bank account. When asked about money, the average person’s first thought is stress about the bills. It is important to bring the right energy in your money thoughts. Lifestyle choices determine the type of energy people allow into their energy fields. Earning money is one type of energy, but investing and growing money requires different types of energy. For example, millionaires have different mindsets than average people. Money is usually seen as a piece of paper that brings wealth to the people at the expense of health, relationships, and overall happiness. However, wealth and happiness and health are not mutually exclusive.
People must learn to have respect for the money, but it is hard to respect it if it is seen only as a piece of paper. Quantum physics can change our way of thinking by giving us another perspective. In quantum physics, everything in its core is energy. Thus, think of money as energy. Good example to grasp this concept is if you imagine a money avatar. Think of it as your best friend, called Sarah. If you are too needy towards Sarah, she will eventually feel suffocated. But if you respect and appreciate Sarah’s time, she will always be there for you. The same is with money. Money comes, and money goes. Develop an attitude to treat your money with love and respect, and not with need and greed. Changing the perspective helps people to let the money go easier in order for the new money to come. Creating a healthy relationship with money also helps not to go back into old paradigms and panic moods when the financial crisis like Covid19 happens. Furthermore, the more self-confidence a person has, the more control he or she will have over the money as well. There is an old story of a strong bird standing on a very thin tree branch. The bird does not stand there because it knows that the tree is strong, but because it knows that it can fly off in case if the branch breaks. In conclusion, only confidence in yourself gives you confidence in your current situation as well. Your current situation cannot offer you any confidence because circumstances change easily.
