This is the month of earning money with love! Or rather, the lead up to the month, but money is sticky so we’re easing in. (Learn more about the month’s genesis)
We’re working on things from a variety of angles, all of which I just wrote about here.
In the Mad Castle (that’s this here blog), we’re going to be doing a lot of looking into beliefs, patterns, monsters, blocks, and insights about money. (Including whether we need as much as we think we do).
But before we get into that, I thought we’d go over some strategies for how to work with other people’s beliefs with sovereignty, compassion and effectiveness.
Concepts for Interacting with Concepts
As meta as they come. It’s a little mind bending because all of these concepts apply to themselves as well, but I’m sure you’ll manage.
You are in integrity
Integrity in the sense of “whole, entire, or undiminished.”
Every part of you exists in relation to all the other parts of you, which together are whole and entire.
Therefore, there isn’t a whole lot of sense in indiscriminately hacking away at your current beliefs and patterns. That method a.)creates resistance, b.)fails to take advantage of natural strengths in the relationship between your parts and c.)doesn’t acknowledge or respect your wholeness.
So when interacting with a new belief, it is best to work with sovereignty and permission. Any resistance always has a reason. Ask it what that reason is.
It can be wrong for you, at least for right now.
You get to experiment
There’s no point believing something because I said it or because I said someone else said it. Your monsters are right to object to taking truth wholesale from other people.
Try experimenting. How would I think differently if I believed this? If I acted like this was true for a week, or for the next five minutes, how would my life change?
Gather your own data.
Let the Stone Drop, Watch the Ripples
Pay attention to what your mind does when you encounter concepts. Watch for patterns.
Try to come to concepts from the present moment. Be curious, if you can. Assume that anything people say is right and true if approached from a certain angle, and try to figure out what that angle is.
Listen to your monsters and then challenge their assumptions.
Change Your Mind, Change Your Life
For our purposes (and in my experience of life), changing your internal relationship to something changes your experience overall.
You don’t have to believe that.
But most of the concepts we explore this next month and a half (and most of what I do ever) are experimenting with the idea that changing your internal relationships is powerful.
This doesn’t have to be a woo-woo belief. It is possible that when you think about money differently, you relate differently to opportunities involving money (or at least, that is the hypothesis), and this creates ever so slightly different outcomes.
It is also possible that you can shift your internal relationships to your surroundings in such a way that you feel more comfortable and happy even if your environment doesn’t change at all. Maybe. We’ll experiment.
How are these concepts landing? Are they old hat to you or are you noticing a lot of resistance?
How are you feeling about this upcoming month? Is there anything specific about money and the things it brings you that you’d like me to talk about? (You can also send me an e-mail.)
Feel free to respond/play with any of this stuff on your own site. You can put our pretty “April: Earning Money with Love” badge in your post so we know you’re one of us. (That’s kind of creepy: “you’re one of us now.”)
Commenting with sovereignty and love, of course.
Love you bunches,
Rewrite Your Money Patterns
Would you like to be one of five people to have a private skype Shiva Nata session with me to energize your practice and rewrite your money patterns? Would you like to help me pay my rent for the first time doing things I love?
Check out the Shiva Nata Breakthrough Sessions. Unstick your practice. Unstick your relationship to money. Unstick everything else in your life.
