Historically, we have seen people in authority as well as religious institutions use money to exercise power in negative ways. As a result, some of us unconsciously fear that having money will somehow make us the ‘bad guy’, or we judge rich people, assuming they are ‘bad’.
It would be difficult to attract money if we associate negative images and experiences to it. It is crucial, therefore, that we have a positive definition of money and are able to see how it can serve us better. Money enables us to be in our personal power and act from a place of personal authority.
Money allows us to express ourselves authentically. We are not dependant on anyone else when we have money, and the need to please others due to fear of losing their support isn’t there. We can live in inter-dependant relationships trusting that we can exercise our personal power with authenticity, grace, and integrity without fear of displeasing others.
Here are three ways money can allow women to be in their personal power:
1. When a woman is in survival mode and dependent on other people for her living, it is very difficult to listen to the voice of her soul. It is even harder to draw boundaries in relationships that may not be honoring her for who she is. Being financially independent offers the woman the choice of saying ‘no’ to what isn’t serving her.
2. If you see yourself as an agent of change, someone able to make great changes, you can influence many decisions in areas of authority such as politics and other public and social arenas involving money. If you are a good person with great causes, it is important, therefore, that you see the value of money and how it can allow you to act on your internal beliefs and convictions to exercise change in causes you care about.
3. Money allows you to take better care of yourself, and you are able listen to your personal voice as you are rested, relaxed and not worried about providing for yourself.
When we are in touch with our personal values, we don’t need to fear that we will use money in a negative way. Consequently, we need to stop worrying that money will somehow turn us into a ‘bad guy’.
I am asking you to trust yourself to use money your way. You are going to serve even more people and causes when you have more money. It will allow you to be more generous when you have more.
Detach the idea of money from your thoughts of people who have misused it, and instead, visualize it wanting to come to you, to comfort you, to support you and allow you to become the powerful woman you are meant to be- powerful in your feminine, graceful and brilliant way!
