When most people think about relationships, they think about relationships with other humans.
What about some of the other primary relationships you have during your life?
~The relating you do with the land you dwell on.
~Your very intimate relationship with the food that nourishes your body.
Today, I’m inviting you to consider money as a primary relationship in your life.
And because we are a relationship school, teaching the skills for graceful relating, it’s something we gotta talk about.
YOU + MONEY
When you read, “Money is a primary relationship in my life,” what happens in your body?
- Do you tighten?
- Do you want to stop reading, or start skimming?
- Do your eyes widen in excitement?
Yes, money, like sex, is both exciting and scary.
(Warning: plot twist ahead)
You know that I spend a lot of time thinking about sexuality, Eros, and bodies.
Lately, I’ve been considering erotic flow, what it means, how I can support people to access it.
(Here’s where the money/sex parts come together!)
Money is a stream of energy, just like the Erotic is a different stream of energy.
(Don’t worry, not going full-on woo woo here, but hang with me.)
Frequently, how you are with one resource in your life bleeds into how you are with other resources in your life.
Love, pleasure, touch, food, money, etc.
Not to say you can’t have separate relationships with different things, but the common denominator is YOU.
It makes sense that money AND sexuality are areas of your life that deserve your attention, your healing.
Where are you, in terms of your consciousness around money?
Here are a few questions for your consideration, and possible journaling.
- What money practices do you have that you feel pride in?
- Do you budget? Why or why not?
- Do you consider money a friend or an enemy? Why?
- How does money bring you joy?
True Confession: I love money.
It has taken a lot of permission, unlearning, mindset work, therapy and magic for me to be able to frankly write that. Boom!
I love considering how to create prosperity for me, for my friends, for my community.
I love making my dreams come true.
Healing with money is much like healing sexuality.
It takes time, curiosity, and attention.
You can learn to direct your energy, through working with your attention.
For example, if you want to build bigger biceps you’d train those particular muscles.
If you want to build bigger money muscles, you have to train (and retrain) your brain.
How you think influences a lot about how you ARE.
Money Mindset is (almost) EVERYTHING!
