I've been thinking about money lately because I'm reading a book about it. It is called The Soul of Money: Reclaiming the Wealth of Our Inner Resources. Not thinking so much about the physical side of it but more about the study of it. There are so many programs around addressing money -- how to make it, how to make more of it, how to remove blocks you have about making it, and so many more different approaches to healing our relationship with it. There is so much emotion tied to money, let's get some thoughts going here about it.

Some believe that it is "the root of all evil". We know it can be, it just depends upon how it is used, just like anything else. A gun or a even a word can be used to cause harm. A gun can also be used for skill building, fun and sport. (I'm talking target shooting here not animals!). Hand/eye coordination, healthy competition, building relationships.  Words can be used to harm or heal we all know how words can affect us. So looking at money as an evil is a lopsided view.

Some may also believe that to make a lot of money isn't spiritual. Personally I think that is a crock. If you donate money to just causes - don't you think that's very spiritual. Why wouldn't you want lots of money to be able to donate and support organizations you believe in? My commitment for this website is to use 10% of the earnings to donate. If you purchase something from a link on my site and you have a favorite charity contact me and I will send 10% of your purchase to the organization of your choice. My choices are usually dog centric - especially Greyhounds, Whippets, and Italian Greyhounds unless there is an urgent request for any dog needing medical attention.

Money doesn't make life easier it makes living easier. Get the difference?

Money just is, it is neither good nor bad, it just is. It's how we perceive it, how we use or
abuse it that creates emotions and results around it. How we use it is core to our belief about money. How many couples have challenges based on money? You're a spender and she's a saver. Of course there are ways to work those things out. One way is for each to have a weekly "allowance" to spend or save however each desires. That money is designated for your own use. You don't have to consult about how you spend it. The saver can save it and feel complete. The spender can go out and enjoy it or save it each week for a bigger purchase. Just a suggestion that has worked for me.

Hope your day is Wonderful!

    I do get the difference to making living easier! My relationship with money is often frustrating, and I'm glad to find another source to help me resolve those issues. For me, it's been difficult to earn -- whether hard work or smart work, it doesn't seem to pay off!

    Your comments about money for charity and good, hit home as well. I adopted an Italian Greyhound with hip and leg deformities, hoping I could raise money, or finding good paying work, to pay for what I was told would be a simple surgery. Turned out that he needs rather extensive surgery that will cost 10 times what the rescue group told me. I want to make this right for my little love guy!

      I will be talking more about money Dorian - there is a lot to share. It is such an emotionally charged topic. Let me suggest one thing for your little love guy. Visualize him straight, strong and healthy - see him in your mind, visualize that you have the money to do what he needs! See it and when you see it, you HAVE to believe it otherwise it is just wishful thinking! Believing something negative or something positive BOTH still require FAITH in something. So believe in the positive! I'm not suggesting that you indulge in wishful thinking. Everyday for a few minutes, or if you already have a meditation practice, sit quietly, center yourself and ask your higher power how you can make this happen. Can you dog sit, take a part time job for a while, work online as a virtual assistant, do a fund raising, ask the vet for a payment plan, whatever ideas come to you write them down. Don't minimize or negate any idea. The universe won't give you an idea that you cannot do! Stay in touch! I want to know how you are doing!

        I haven't tried visualizing seeing him walking and running with corrected legs, as the images of his legs and knees collasping in are so strong to me; but I will work at replacing those images, as I am strongly influenced by visuals..As for the means to increase the income, I've tried or done all of those I can! Instead of no job for quite a long time, I finally found a part-time one -- and looking for another part-time job or biz income. Thank you for sharing what has worked for you and others!

          Eventually, with repetition (which is key) the visualizations will become easier. Create a vision board - that helps with picturing things. It takes time - just don't give up!
