Self Sabotage in the Root Chakra
Money is an Energy
In my last blog I talked to you about self-sabotage in the Root Chakra with regard to the financial aspect of your life. This is a big subject as you can imagine so I wanted to come and talk to you again about money. I’m going to cover the following:
- Money as energy
- Money as flow and how impacts everyone
- Your Rights of the Root Chakra To Have and To Be
- Aversion to money and spiritual misconceptions
Self Sabotage – Money is an Energy
Money is another form of energy. Just like energy it can become blocked. It is meant to flow and circulate. For example, if you do not pay a bill on time it causes an interruption and interferes with the flow. It is a chain. Visualise for a moment that as you pay for your groceries you have entered into a flow of energy. As you pay someone, they pay someone else, who pays someone else, who pays someone else! So your humble purchase of a bunch of bananas has supported an entire chain across the globe! Somewhere along this chain a block will be caused as a consequence of stoppage in the flow of the energy of money. This causes a back-up and has consequences that can cause extra work, stress, pressure and distress. So we want to keep the flow.
Self Sabotage – Money is an Exchange
As money is energy it acts as a form of exchange and represents different values e.g. worth, , appreciation, respect, significance, importance and usefulness. It also represents gratitude and consideration for time and effort. Many people who are consciously on their spiritual path find great difficulty with money. They see their role in live as one of service and feel more comfortable with giving. However, in the Root Chakra we have the Rights To Have and To Be Here and in the complement Heart Chakra we have the Rights To Love and To Be Loved which includes to both giving and receiving.
Self Sabotage – Best Intentions
I have witnessed so many people who give away their services for free or undermine their own worth and to charge a very low rate for their work, even if they have paid thousands for training and spent years of their time studying. The thing is, what happens, is that they set off with these loving intentions to serve but discover, very sadly, that they go out of business, or have to practice part-time. They do not receive enough of the energy of exchange to earn their living and therefore they suffer as they are unable to continue with their passion and their purpose. Also, their clients suffer as they lose a very good practitioner. I have seen this over and over again. Even with the best of intentions these people are self-sabotaging.
The 21 Day Root Chakra Challenge is free and always will be. My intention is that as it forms the basis to build upon, it will act as a stepping stone on people spiritual path and inspire them to continue. That the good vibes they feel inside will ripple out to their friends and family and make a difference in all of their lives. I am so grateful to all of those that share the posts, share the event and who invite their friends to join as an energetical exchange. I am also so grateful for those who make a small contribution to the event through the purchase of the Chakra Healing Toolkit downloadable PDF on Day 10 of the event named Just for Today. This enables the ongoing management of the event and is an exchange of energy, entering into the flow and enabling the sharing with those who follow you.
Self Sabotage Aversion to Money
I really understand this aversion to money. I used to be like this. I spent 5 years living on a beautiful quiet island in the Mediterranean and totally devoted myself to my spiritual life both teaching and learning. I never touched money. I would have a Tibetan bowl in my yoga class for donations, I would have an honesty box for my classes and talks and the payments for my development groups would go through my personal assistant. Although my work was spiritually fulfilling, by ignoring the financial realities it did not create a strong enough foundation to build upon and ultimately the dream life collapsed. It has been through the growing awareness of money as an energy, and the acceptance to flow with this energy, that has enabled me to rebuild a successful business and to reach thousands of people all over the world.
Self Sabotage – Relating to Money
You have the right to security, safety, to success and to participate in the flow of the energy of money. It is how you relate to the energy of money that makes the difference to your own spirituality and the energy of your own body. If you become materialistic and selfish, a shopaholic, a workaholic, greedy and excessive in your spending, obviously this will form a block for you. Balance in the Root Chakra is also about your work life and how you relate to it. From the ‘money as energy’ point of view it is about how your work life supports you.
Self Sabotage – Spiritual Misconceptions
There are some popular misconceptions about money and personal success, when looking at the Law of Attraction for example. You will have heard the phrase “Act as if…” meaning act as if what you wish for is already in your life. It means to feel through your senses, to fill with self-belief and confidence, to visualise and to use your imagination and to take steps towards your desire. It does not mean, ‘Spend as if….’. This can be a big issue.
So within this misconception, you lie back, you write a false cheque out for £100,000 and stick it to your ceiling above your bed so that you see it every morning when you wake and every evening before you go to sleep. When you wake you read the affirmations stuck to your mirror in line with your wish to earn £100,000. You set your intentions, you create your wishes and you imagine your dreams. (In in my humble opinion there are more important things to be mindful of in your waking and before you fall to sleep, that represent a more spiritual approach to your life.) Where the misconception or self-deluding comes into force is that some of these people will start to spend as if they are already earning this kind of money. They believe they will need the clothes, the accessories, the car, the house, the partner and it goes on and on, usually on to the credit card! This is massive self-sabotage!
The Universe rewards Action, not intention, wishes or dreams. To be in the flow of the energy of money is to enter into the energy of giving and receiving.
