The Consciousness of Money

The Consciousness Of Money

Our financial systems are currently evolving very rapidly and it’s likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This level and speed of change tends to create insecurity for some and opportunity for others.

But this is not only about money as cash and transactions. It’s not only about the rapid growth in crypto-currencies and the unprecedented financial freedom that’s being promised. It’s not only about the shifting global economy.

Since writing my book, “Love Money, Money Loves You” in 2011 I’ve been fascinated by the energy of money and I’ve found it necessary to radically shift my relationship with money as a result. This is something I’m still learning and experimenting with, both personally and with clients at every opportunity. I believe this is a shift we’ll all need to make over the coming years as our current stories about money are often disempowering, uncreative and frankly mostly untrue.

Now I’m beginning to explore the consciousness of money, stimulated by my friend Jeff Vander Clute, who’s coming to stay for a few weeks. Jeff hangs out with a lot of extraordinary people – for example The Evolutionary Leaders (numbering many household names amongst their members), Charter for Compassion International, Alliance for the Earth. He also works with visionary leaders in many industries to create ‘radiant enterprises’. It’s clear that old-fashioned approaches to money are quite unsuited to a more conscious and awake future in business or any other field.

I often hear people say that money is energy, but it’s rare to find people who are genuinely aware that money is alive; it’s an aspect of consciousness; we can interact with it like we can with any other living being; and we have a relationship with it, whether we’re aware of it or not.

If you want to examine your personal relationship with money take a few minutes to close your eyes, relax and quieten down. Then simply start to observe your patterns and stories about money. Let them bubble to the surface and ask yourself what kind of relationship you’re seeing. Is it respectful? Punishing? Hurt? Creative? Loving?

Do you see money as a friend or an enemy? Do you expect it to help you or hurt you? Do you see it as a generous presence in your life?

You can take this further by looking at the bigger story of money. What role does it have in our world, according to your internal observation? Is it a power for creativity and evolution? Is it the source of most problems? Is it responsible for greed and corruption? Is it an exquisitely beautiful energy?  Find your own words and descriptions so you can start to develop your own consciousness around money and become more aware of what it really is. Like any relationship, no one else can do this for you. It’s only when you take the time to get to know money better that you’ll be able to develop a better relationship with it.
