All About Career and Money
Last week in my blog about love, I mentioned that love was one of two hot topics when people reach out to me for readings. What is the other topic?
You guessed it! Money and career.
I have had the gift of living on both sides of the coin when it comes to money. No, I have never been a millionaire, but at this point in my life, I am living the life that is comfortable. I have enough to pay my bills and a little bit extra, which is what I feel is a good way to be.
A few years ago, however, life was not that way. From the time I turned twenty until my late thirties, life was a struggle. I could make $20 feed a family of three for a week. I once spent a week at the beach in a tent because we could not afford a room. I have had furniture and cars repossessed. I have slept on the floor and sat on lawn chairs because that is all we had in the house.
I could insert here that abundance is different for everyone. When I was sitting alone in my low-rent apartment with no furniture and a mattress on the floor to sleep on, I was of all people most blessed. I never felt destitute. However, I understand that for a lot of people looking from the outside in, I was in dire straits.
So I understand the struggle for money and the idea that one needs a certain standard of living to be considered abundant.
At some point in time, I learned a few lessons that eventually changed my circumstances.
The first principle is this:
Money is a vibration.
Money, in itself, is not good or bad. It is completely neutral. The thoughts, beliefs, and emotions we have about money is what creates our experience with it!
When we have a belief about money, this could be a belief that is passed down from our ancestors, one that we acquired from experience, or one we brought in with us from other lifetimes.
Here are some common beliefs:
Money is hard to come by.
The only money worth having is what you work for
People with money are rude, arrogant, etc (you fill in the blank)
The love of money is the root of all evil
Money burns a hole in my pocket
You get the picture. There are a thousand beliefs we may think of that we have or that we have heard, either from our parents, our belief system, our culture, or from our experience with it.
The truth is, the only reason you do or do not have money, or a better term may be abundance, is because you are not a vibrational match to it.
We are tied to a particular vibration in regards to money from those with whom we are connected.
I may have a really good vibration in regards to abundance, but if someone keeps going in my wallet and taking whatever is there and spending it all, I will not prosper.
You are never going to be more abundant than the people you hang out with! This could be family members, a belief system, a culture, or any collective energy that you find yourself spending time with. Poverty mentality is contagious! Also, you may be able to achieve a certain level of abundance, but the people you hang out with are going to suck it out of you or cause you to lose it, spend it, or in some way part with it.
The Universe is Abundant!
One of the most common beliefs that must be eliminated is the belief in scarcity.
Many people resent other people who have money or who receive government hand-outs, or who have a different relationship with money than they do. These are like curses we place on ourselves!
For some odd reason we think that if someone else is doing well, it is in some way creating lack for us.
This is not true!
The Universe is never going to run out of resources.
We are always being encouraged to stock up. During the beginning of the pandemic, toilet paper was a commodity! When I was growing up, my mother who believed in the upcoming tribulation, stocked canned foods, dried beans, and all kinds of odd things in the pantry in our basement. When she and my father moved, we had to do something with all that food that had been there since I was a child. I don't remember a day when my mother prepared dried beans as a meal just because she liked them. She believed in an unknown future full of lack.
If we look around us at nature, we can see the principle of abundance at work. One tiny seed produces a plant that is full of either flowers, vegetables, or whatever it was created to produce. If you plant a green bean seed, you are going to get more than one green bean in return. A lot more! Not only that, but somewhere on that plant are more seeds you can plant to get more green beans!
Our abundance is not limited to whatever job we have or to one particular source.
If we line ourselves up vibrationally to the energy of abundance, we will be a magnet to goodness and prosperity.
How do we do this?
It is important to uncover whatever resistance is inside of us! This may be limited beliefs, trapped emotions, karmic circumstances, ancestral blocks, or a number of other possibilities. I mentioned in my blog about ancestral patterns that if an ancestor had a tendency, we could inherit it.
After we uncover and eliminate whatever blocks we have to abundance, it is important to replace the limitations with a new vibration.
There are a number of things you can do to improve your relationship to abundance. When you hold money in your hand, you can send it love and thank it for giving you the life you have. Kiss your bills before you pay them! Too many of us resent giving up what money we have to pay our bills, but be thankful you have whatever commodity you are enjoying because of that bill. Give to charities or other organizations. If you are lined up with the energy of abundance, you will not feel that twinge of resistance when it comes to spending your money on something that is not going to benefit you at all. Don't judge others and how they choose to spend their money. Don't judge people who are receiving financial assistance.
If we line ourselves up with the belief that abundance is everywhere and our source of supply is not limited to circumstances, we will always have enough. We will not mind giving our little bit of change on our grocery bill to whatever charity the store is promoting. We will not mind buying things for other people or giving to others.
Here are some empowering beliefs about money:
I always have enough and a little bit more (my favorite!)
My bills are always paid on time
Everything I need is provided for me
I am a magnet to prosperity
Good things are always coming to me
I am a magnet to my perfect job and enjoy going to work everyday
If we eliminate the belief in lack and replace it with the belief in abundance, we will find our lives improving for the better!
If we stop judging others and what they choose to do with their money, we will stop cursing ourselves in relationship to money.
If we stop comparing our own bottom line with that of others, and realize that someone else's abundance level has literally nothing to do with ours, we will begin to free up the Universe to bless us!
Remember that your external circumstances are not necessarily a barometer to how your vibration lines up with the vibration of abundance! Remember I told you that there was a certain time in my life when I lived in an apartment with a mattress on the floor to sleep on and not much else but I felt very blessed. The feeling of abundance is knowing that all is well and the Universe has your back! Don't limit yourself to a belief that abundance is necessarily related to a certain amount of money in the bank or a particular career or salary. We can see examples every day of very wealthy people who are of all people most miserable. Most of their time is spent worrying about or trying to hold on to what they have or control others. That is not abundance.
It is time to redefine what abundance means to us. It is time to appreciate the blessings we have in our life and stop worrying about what we don't have.
As always, I am available for private sessions to assist you in releasing hidden blocks or whatever you may need. I offer free monthly Zoom gatherings for meditation and messages from the Guides as well as a free or by donation in person monthly gathering in Winchester Virginia.

Let's all love one another and be good to one another. Stop fighting, comparing yourself to others, judging other people and being afraid. And you will be okay.
