Rachael Wolff author of Letters From A Better Me has written a new blog post on her appreciation for her positive relationship with money, take a look.
I’m grateful for the good things money can do! Way too many of us have a bad relationship with money. Then we wonder why we don’t have any, very little, or just not enough. Our energy around money will lead us to fear, lack, and separation or love, abundance, and peace. It all comes down to the stories we tell ourselves about money and the people who have it. If someone is attached to fear, lack, and separation they can make a lot of money doing things that aren’t good for the common good, and they will never feel like they have enough, because they are living in lack. People can be attached to that same energy and have nothing, because in their minds all people who have money are evil and hurt others. Well, the fear of being a bad person will keep them from having money, or they will rationalize making money in ways that keep their self-worth believing they are a bad person. To the unhealthy people who believe that no amount of money is enough, they will do things to get it that put their greed before human life, because they are living in lack. It’s a vicious cycle.
Now, if we align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we can see the good that money can do and we look to the people who are doing good with the money they have. There are plenty of these people out there. Many of them aren’t flaunting what they are doing, because they ARE doing what they do for the right reasons. Remember, where we put our focus is what we will see more of and what we will create for ourselves. I’m grateful for the good things money can do. I love diving in and researching all the amazing developments that come from people who actually build up their teams to do amazing things in the world.
This doesn’t mean we don’t pay attention when faced with facts, but it means we don’t make it about the money. Healthy people (aligned with love, abundance and peace) will do good things with money, and unhealthy people (aligned with fear, lack, and separation) will make bad choices with money. It’s a human thing, not a money thing.
Today, I commit to working on my relationship with money. One of the ways I work on my relationship with money is to remember that money is just paper, we as humans are what gives money meaning for better or for worse. Really, our relationship with money is about our relationship with ourselves and our own beliefs about money. I can have whatever relationship I want, I don’t have to be imprisoned by beliefs about money that others have had or have been passed down to me. There will be proof that people do bad things with money and there will be proof that people do good things. The questions are:
- What are my beliefs about money?
- How do they serve me?
- Do I feel imprisoned by some of these beliefs?
- Do I care shame, guilt, or fear around money?
- Do I feel like I’m always in lack of money?What is another way of to look at the beliefs that aren’t serving me (research good things people are doing with money and try to see what their beliefs are)?
- Who do I want to be?
- How do I want my relationship with money to look?
- What do I want to do with money?
- Why am I doing what I do?
- What are my priorities?
- How will I serve others?
- Why do I want to have more?
- Do I appreciate what I have now?
When we stop blaming others for our issues with money and start looking at the ideas we hold true, we set ourselves free from the chains that are keeping us held down. This doesn’t mean if we change our beliefs that we will become instant millionaires, but it might mean that we discover that we get what we need and that when we align our energy with love, abundance, and peace—Money has a way of showing up!
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

How Becoming an Empowered Woman Transforms the World
THE EMPOWERED WOMAN follows the belief system that is best explained in a quote by Byron Katie: “The most attractive thing about the Buddha was that he saved one person: himself. That’s all he needed to save; when he saved himself, he saved the whole world.”
The letters work in different ways depending on the chapter and part of the book.
