My first memory of money is one of me stealing money from my great grandma (ZAR 7/ 70 US cents).
And then to make matters worse - I lied to my grandmother about where I got the money...
In an ideal world, money shouldn't be able to buy us good health. We would all have access to health care and healthy food at affordable rates or even free of charge.
But we don't live in an ideal world…
Why do we find it so difficult to move ourselves beyond survival mode and into full on financial abundance?
Why do we constantly find ourselves on the financial edge?
Sometimes it seems like no matter what we do - we always find ourselves back in debt or with a zero bank balance or just dealing with the same old financial drama as last year or 10 years before.
Our minds are constantly growing, constantly evolving, and there's enough proof to believe in this theory.
Not just regarding physical size, even the basic functionality of the mind changes and evolves as we grow older.
So how can we change our mindset?
People usually use their lack of money as the primary excuse for not investing.
But when will money ever be enough? When you reach 45? 50? 60 or too old to count?
Investing while you’re broke is possible; you just need to make that mindset shift.
When I started tantra yoga, I'd only done vinyasa yoga and ashtanga yoga and was focused on being in the poses and looking awesome as I do them.
I'd force myself into poses and now I have to challenge myself to relax in a pose and feel into my body, which changed my life.
But not before I almost lost my mind crying everyday when I was getting my yoga teaching certificate in Goa, India and then had all sorts of ancestral and deep childhood memories surface.
A few weeks ago, I had lunch with some Creating Money Magic students and one of them asked me a very interesting question: do I experience Wealthy Money differently in every country?
She mentioned that she noticed that my writing and the things I discuss about money are very different in each country.
In South Africa (I’m still in South Africa right now) my writing is always different and my writing changes – I don’t go as deep in my writings about my conversations with the spirit of money.
I’d actually never noticed that before but I thought about it and asked some people what they thought and the general consensus was the same – my writing and interactions with money change in every country I’m in.
I think it’s really interesting!
