Frequencies, Beliefs and Money
Wait, what? Frequencies, beliefs, and money? How can you put together in the same sentence something as abstract as frequencies and beliefs, and as concrete as money? Well, are they really that different? Let’s take a look.
When we talk about frequencies we are basically talking about energy. Yes, energy, the same one that you don’t see but can feel pretty concretely if you touch a bare wire; the one that concretely turns on the light bulbs in your house when you turn on the switch; the one that allows your heart muscle to beat and your brain cells to communicate with one another. Energy is everywhere, inside and out, and even though you can’t necessarily see it (well, you will if you look at the sky on a stormy day), it is everywhere.
Now, let’s talk about money. Most of us usually has such a conflicted relationship with money, which is barely surprising considering the contradictory messages we receive about it from an early age. We are taught that we should work hard to earn our money, but that we should stay humble to avoid becoming too greedy. We are taught that we must ensure that we never run out of money so that we can always honor our bills when they are due. And we are taught that we shouldn’t want money too badly or without a reason (“Why? Just for luxury or pleasure?”), because that can corrupt us, our values, and turn us into slaves of material possession. The result is that we end up having a love-hate relationship with money that is mostly driven by fear and judgment. We criticize those who lavish on their possessions, we try to stay in control of our spend for fear of running dry, and we are never quite sure that we are making what we should because we were never taught to have a healthy enough relationship with money that would allow us to properly assess our own value.
In the midst of it all, there are our beliefs. They go unnoticed most of the time, but they are in the background unconsciously driving our behavior and dictating the type of love life we will have, what kind of friendships we will choose and, yes, what will our relationship with money be like. It goes somewhat like this: if I believe that placing value on money can make me greedy, I will be afraid of asking for a higher pay and will accept whatever I am offered for my work. If I was taught that money should be handled merely as a means to an end, I not only will ensure that I never make more than I actually need to make ends meet (if that), but when I have some extra, I will spend it all before I can save up some. We will always act to confirm what we believe. This happens at an unconscious level, of course, but it still happens. And then, when we never have enough money for pleasure, luxury or vacation, we sign that up to bad luck, karma or fate when, in fact, these occurrences are taking place as a result of small unnoticed choices that we make day in, day out, which generate a bigger picture that keeps us financially stagnated. But why? Here is where I want to bring a fourth player into this equation: fear.
Fear is an evolutionarily adaptive mechanism that keeps us alive. It’s an emotion designed to allow living beings to react to anything that threatens their survival: when something in our environment provokes fear, our brain and body rev up to prepare to respond by fighting, fleeing, or freezing. And this is the actual problem: fear creates a response that usually is of constraint, removal, repulsion. We don’t throw ourselves at that which we fear: on the contrary, we step away from it. Therefore, energetically, fear generates reduction. Even though it can create an expansive response - fighting, it is more likely to create two other non-expansive responses – fleeing or freezing. And what does that mean in terms of manifestation? It means that your creative streak is simply blocked. You can’t create more of anything that you think of in terms of scarcity. You can create more only of those things that you think of in terms of abundance. And why the way we think of things matter? Because our thoughts are created by our beliefs, and our beliefs drive our behavior, remember? So, if fear drives your relationship with money, everything you do will be with driven by a sense of lack, necessity or poverty, and that is what you will wound up (unconsciously) creating in your life.
So, am I saying that you should get any extra money that you receive, open the door, and throw it onto any passersby? Absolutely not! That is not a good relationship to have with money either! What I am saying is that you should never relate to anything in your life from fear, because we end up creating the things we think of and believe in, be it sickness or health, abundance or lack, love or fear. As you do with every other relationship that you want to keep in your life, you should care about money in a healthy way: not being possessive nor dismissive, not being cheap nor wasteful. You don’t relate with the people you love driven by the fear that they may go away. If you are afraid that you may lose them, you nurture them with love and with good things to ensure that they stay. You treat them with generosity and thoughtfulness. And the same should apply here. You should be generous when you think of and when you handle money, certain that it will continue to flow into your life if you treat it right. As anything else in life, money is energy and, as such, you can attract or repel it according to your thoughts and actions.
Can you see how energy and beliefs are deeply interconnected, and can even be interchangeable? If you don’t believe in energy, it is fine, think of all of this in terms of beliefs: you will attract and repel things and people into/from your life according to what you believe. Therefore, change the mindset. That is where it all starts. If you need help, let me know. I can assist you on this.
