I have written before about the power of money in the sense that money is a tool. Like a hammer that can be used to build something or to destroy something, so can money do both of those things.
Today, however, I am going to share a whole new way of seeing money and its message. There is another power we sometimes fail to see. It is the energy that is used ALONG with money. In fact, money can be a messenger!
For example, I watched this video today. I will attach the link to this video at the end of the this post so you can watch and see what I mean.:-)
In the video a young man is given a $700 tip from a church and its members after delivering pizzas to them. He is so moved by it that he makes a video and it goes viral. He couldn’t believe that while he is struggling to get his life on track, so many strangers could care about him.
Let this sink in. The money is more than a monetary thing here. The money carries a message. A message of love, kindness, support, and compassion. Sure the money will help this young man, but what is infused in the giving of the money is even more so the gift.
How do you think about money? When you give it to someone or pay a bill, what do think? How do you feel? Do you give with gratitude? Do you give with loving intention? Or are do you give with mental brakes on?
For example, I am fortunate to have a personal assistant. Each week she makes my life easier and helps me for a couple of hours 2 to 3 times a week. I am in such gratitude for this woman and for her help. When I pay her through an e-transfer, nothing gives me more pleasure. I love sending her money. I love appreciating her! I love that we have a relationship in which we help and support each other. And I hope that when she pays this same money forward she does so with love also.
You see, like energy, money is ever moving, no matter how much or how little the amount. It is constantly in a state of motion, going from one person to another, in some form.
It is my hope that this message opens us up to a new way of thinking when we are transferring money or services, or words, or anything. Think of the message you are sending with whatever it is you are giving or paying or transferring.
Okay here’s the link and enjoy!
