The Real Purpose of Money

 

I have a new favorite book.  It’s called Busting Loose From the Money Game by Robert Scheinfeld.   This book is about money, but . . . it is really about SO MUCH MORE.    

Consider this:

The real purpose of money is to express appreciation for the magnificence of yourself as the Creator of everything you experience and the magnificence of all your creations as you create and experience them. (p.87)

WOW!!  Now that’s a new perspective on money!

Consider:

When someone does something for you, you thank them, right?  When someone gives you something, you express appreciation, right?  Come on now, if you are not thanking people or expressing any appreciation to others, then it’s time for a review of basic good manners.  So I’m going to assume that you know how to say “please” and “thank you” because, of course, you do, and that you actually say it!

So, now, if you truly are the Creator of your own reality, if your reality actually reflects back to you your own beliefs, emotions, and other inner “stuff,” then when you say “thank you” you are actually expressing gratitude to YOURSELF.  This is because everyone in your personal world is you, since there is only one being here in the first place!

Back in the days before there was money, people exchanged physical items.  It was called Barter.  Today we use metal coins and pieces of paper to make the exchanges more efficient, but the concept of an exchange is the same.

When people talk to each other or interact in any way (including having sex), it is not only the words (or fluids) that are being exchanged.  It is actually ENERGY being exchanged.  In Barbara Brennan’s book, Light Emerging, there are amazing drawings of what this energy exchange might look like.

Since everything in the universe is composed of the same thing – “strings” or “waves” or “particles” – then even our emotions and thoughts must be included in this definition.  So when we exchange ANYTHING we are exchanging ENERGY.

Are you with me so far?

If we are exchanging ENERGY, and we do this at all level of vibrational frequency, then, by definition, money is just a form of energy, too. 

And if everyone in our personal universe that we each call “reality” is a just another version of us, then when we pay bills, buy items in stores or online, put money into the bank or into our wallets, we appear to be moving money around, but we are actually moving energy around.  And when we give this energy to what appears to be someone else, we are really giving it to another aspect of ourselves.

In other words, when we use money as an exchange for something we want, we are really just expressing our gratitude, our appreciation – also forms of energy – for whatever it is we received in return.  This can be use of space (paying rent or mortgage), food, clothing, a healing, a consultation, medical services, and EVERYTHING else.

Do you deserve appreciation?  Of COUSE you do!

Do you deserve to be thanked?  Of COUSE you do!

So this Thanksgiving Season is really about THANKING YOURSELF as the DIVINE CREATOR of YOUR REALITY.

I THANK EACH of you for being a reflection of me in my reality.

Namaste (The God in Me Salutes the God in You.)
