The Rippling Defect of Money

Case #1: You go to the doctor for an issue, but over time you find yourself going months later and with little improvement for your issues.

Case #2: You go to a therapist and over time rather than feel a more balanced and grounded in yourself you remain in the same self-defeating cycle.

Or maybe… you are Case #3: You feel that you and found and gained the treatment that you need but with the professional you are working with you can sense that they are trying to keep you coming.  Why would they do this?  Money.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m certainly not suggesting that all of those in the health or human services field are purposely failing to put forth the effort to truly help others.  In fact, I don’t necessarily feel that most are really fully consciously aware of what they are doing since it is so deeply rooted in our being as humans.  After all, how can we catch it and really notice it in ourselves when large business and the government continue to place more and more requirements on us that we apparently “need” to pay for?  College education, certifications, mortgage, car payments, good credit reports, insurance of all sorts — do we really need all of those?  It’s often placed on us being told that it is for “security” purposes — for either ourselves personally or for society.  But what is true security?  The irony is that because it is driven by the a desire for greater financial security it creates this continuous cycle and we keep ourselves on a stagnant plane with the rest of society that does the same exact thing.

I came to this realization the other day when, after going through a spout of anxiety and worry over the decision of a potential investment, I saw how I was truly just blocking myself from my own happiness.  I was blocking myself from having the opportunity to create from what I love by allowing all of these businesses and others that tell me what I “need” and “should do” to block off what my heart and intuition was truly saying.  And, of course, my tarot cards were a clear guide to this realization!

It’s truly such a self-defeating cycle to go into something with the idea of “I want to make money”,  “I’m worried about losing money” or “I need to keep this client around so I continue to make more money”.  The only way to truly help ourselves and to help one another is by saying “I want to do this to truly follow my heart and to help others grow for the better.  When they no longer need my help, I can know that I have truly done the job that was I meant to do.  I am not concerned about debt or how I will be able to afford living expenses because I know that God will take care of me”.

So the question you can ask yourself is: Am I blocking myself with a need for financial security?  Am I worried, anxious and fearful over finances?  If you are, then your missing God’s message.

It’s quite a significant jump going into such blind faith, but it’s also likely one of the most life altering paths to take in order to spiritually grow.
