Today we’d like to speak to you about money. You love it. You hate it. You give it power over your days as you try to acquire it. You worry about it, wonder if you’ll have enough of it, and want more of it. You spend it, give it away, save it, and sacrifice countless hours of your precious life for it.
In truth dear ones, money is meaningless to the soul if it does not represent your love. At the human level it is a great blessing if it is a symbol of love and a great curse if it becomes a symbol of fear.
Instead of praying for money, pray for what you want to experience. Pray for what you want to enjoy. Pray for what you want to share with the world. Money, in and of itself is useless unless it is used to create loving experiences in your own life or the lives of others.
Instead of praying for money to buy the car, pray for the car and imagine your joy in driving it! Instead of praying for money to pay the bills, pray for the ability to pay the bills and live comfortably, resting securely in the knowledge that you are always cared for by the Divine… and imagine what that security would feel like. Instead of praying for money for your children who aren’t working as hard on their own manifestations – for what you want for them (yes we did say that – for what you want for them, because if they wanted something deeply enough, they’d manifest it!) – pray for your children to be happy and have all their dreams come true… and then envision them happy and content.
The Divine can work in mysterious ways. Say you want to rescue animals or feed the poor. You want a few hundred thousands dollars to open a shelter or a food kitchen. So you pray for money. Without realizing it, you are limiting how Divine Love can flow into your life and answer your prayer! It would be far better to pray, “Dear God make me an instrument of your love. I want to help animals. I want to feed the poor. I want to do this in a big way and a meaningful way. I want to do it in cooperation with others of like mind. I want to find my tribe and make a contribution on this earth. Guide me.”
This kind of prayer opens you allows so many wonderful possibilities for yourself and others. You have opened the faucet to allow God’s love to pour into your life! You have allowed room for miracles! You might run into a farmer or restaurant owner who wants to donate excess food and needs someone to get it to those in need. You might run into someone who has a shelter and needs help raising money. You might marry someone who is doing what you want to do! Divine love is not limited but when you pray for money you limit the amount of Divine Love you can receive!
Here is another example. Suppose you don’t know how you’ll pay a bill. You are in fear. You start praying for money while feeling fear and lack. Dear ones, as soon as we say that you can see that you are negating your own prayers with your energy. Far better to say, “Thank you God! I have a blessed life now. I have a roof over my head. I have shoes. I have comfy clothing and there are good people in the world. Thank you for the one who smiled at me in the grocery store yesterday. Thank you for the sunshine. Wow I feel abundant! Oh, by the way, I have a bill but you’ve managed to run the universe so I trust you will help me.” That is powerful dear ones! In this secure and confident energy you cannot help but attract the assistance in paying your bills.
Your loving energy is of far more value than your money… and far more powerful. The stuff, the situations and the people you attract and direct will respond to your energy, so focus on, and pray for what you want to create, not the money to “get” it.
Money is only one of an infinite number of ways the Divine can help you exchange love upon the earth. Use it always as a symbol of love and so doing you will always have not only the money but also the love you wish to experience and express in your life.
