Why Commitment is the Key to Financial Wellbeing

Why commitment is the key to financial wellbeing

Last week I wrote about how I only had 29 days (22 days, now) to pack up my life and find a new place or country to live.  I’ve pretty much decided to head to Dubai for April.

I'm slowly becoming aware that 2017 is a different type of year for me, I just hope it's fun.

Since getting the news, I’ve been redoing the Creating Money Magic course and using the Spirit of Money meditations to help me understand next steps I have to take.

I’ve learned some valuable lessons about money during the spirit of money meditations:


1. Money hates doubt

I've been talking to 2 Indian Goddesses - Saraswati and Lakshmi - in the meditations. They've been showing up in every meditation for the last 2 weeks and it's been bomb!

In a recent conversation with Lakshmi she was really annoyed to see me, uninterested and wasn't feeling me.

She explained that money hates people that doubt it - it's like a lover, if you doubt their abilities, they lose confidence and stop doing what they may have done if you truly showed them support.

Sh advised me to cut the s*** and just commit to either act on the advice I was being given in the meditations or commit to using logic and playing safe.

Neither is wrong, but I need to commit and stick by that commitment because the indecision is causing an energetic block, which can block money.

When we commit to something, we have to trust ourselves to make it happen and that we'll be fine but we also have to trust money.

I decided to go with the crazy scary advice for what's next for my life and ride this roller coaster because logic isn't my strong point.


2. You can focus on expansion or you can focus on safety, both are fine


My spirit of money keeps reminding me that I get to ask for the things I want. I can ask and I may not get them but I can ask.

But what I can't have is expansion and comfort.

i. I can be safe, happy and comfortable. Life can give me that, because comfort is the known and that is safe. And that's fine. It's my choice; money will honor that choice and still show up in safe, predictable and planned ways.


ii. I can have expansion - that's the unknown, jumping off the deep end, it'll be scary and uncomfortable. And money will show up accordingly too. But if I get stuck in the fear then that'll impact the flow of money; if I step into excitement that will also impact the flow of money.

Neither path is wrong because everything in life is here for our learning. We get to ask for what we want.

3.  focus on the things that will bring money into your life


Being busy doesn't mean being productive, productivity can be tied to our bank account

Prioritize productivity over busyness.

Understand what daily activities will lead to an increase in your bank account every month. And then do those activities religiously every day.

Being busy for the sake of being busy is a drain on our energies.


4. Understand your value


It’s not about knowing your value, it’s about understanding it intimately and being able to articulate it because this impacts the income you command.

The exact words my spirit of money used were: you're tapping into Goddess energy, every Goddess knows her power, owns it and doesn't apologize for it.

I'm still working on that but I've got to work hella fast cause I'm on a timeline and leave for Dubai in a few weeks.


5. Consistency is what leads to freedom


This has been a year-long lesson since 2016 and is tied to understanding the importance of fully committing to a path.

To change our lives and up level, we need to take consistent action.
