For many years I took abundance for granted. My psychology practice was based on the conviction that if you do excellent work, you will succeed. I worked hard at being the very best therapist possible. Success – and abundance – always came naturally.
One of the great things about your Divine Nature is that it’s always there, whenever you need it, ready to help you. Like any trusted friend, the more you turn to it, the deeper and easier the connection becomes. Checking in regularly opens up the channels of communication between you and your inner wisdom. The support flows freely and you receive guidance you can use on a daily basis.
Sometimes you know exactly what you need to do to move forward, but you can’t bring yourself to do it. You feel stuck and frustrated with no idea of what’s holding you back. In such situations issues left over from childhood may be creating a block. Until you surface and resolve this block it may be difficult, if not impossible, to move ahead.
Recently I’ve enrolled in a couple of programs to help me expand my business and welcome more abundance into my life. Through these I’ve discovered some blocking beliefs around money.
One of these is that money is bad. We’ve all heard the expression, “Money is the root of all evil.” Part of me felt that it’s wrong to want more money.
Think of the energy of the North in Wintertime. The air is cold. The ground is frozen. People huddle in the warmth of home, conserving energy. Outdoors, the ground is covered in snow. Great stillness reigns. There is no apparent growth – it’s not time yet. It’s all happening underground, gestating, waiting for the light and warmth of Spring before new life will burst forth.
Feeling better by comparing yourself to people who seem less successful than you does as much harm as making yourself feel terrible when you notice someone more successful. When you base your worth on comparison to others, who you really are doesn’t matter. What matters is your superiority (or inferiority) to others, which is an illusion.
