I’m having a hard time finding words for all of the feeling–I caught a glimpse of it this last week.
I felt safe and secure, deeply safe and secure, yet all the indicators in the physical world would not convince you of my security.
I live week to week. I have no savings account and I am deeper in debt than I care to convey.
Now, knowing that, you’d think I walk around in fear and doubt and worry all the time. You’d think I cut up my credit cards and cut myself off from everything I want.
I enjoy life and try to live with total ease and joy–regardless of my financial situation. Life is more than money–life is energy!
More important than the status of my financial books is the FEELING of freedom. Freedom comes from feeling not from having.
The soul wants to experience life it isn’t interested in accomplishments!
Yes, while there are times I yearn for a “real” job that pulls in “real” money, for the most part I am happy to be living this life I’m living. I enjoy freedom and yes, even multiple streams of income. Just when I think there is no more money to pay the bills, I get another check from an unexpected job and it always seems to arrive at the opportune time.
At the depth of this feeling, is pure knowing that everything will always be okay. It always is. Everything always works out for me.
As Donya Ture’ writes in her book, Free Falling Into Your Higher Self, “The logic behind your free fall into a new belief system is because you realize that there is no wordily explanation for life and therefore the impossible, the mystical or even the magical must actually be possible.”
Now, I’m clear that some will say I’m just an idiot and that I should be planning for my retirement and I should be planning to get out of debt and I should be planning to be wealthy. Planning, planning, planning!
I say, “screw your plans.” Life is truly about living NOW. Having said that, it is true, I am simply soothing myself and the situation I am in rather than focusing on what’s wrong with it. I have nothing against planning for the future. I am happy though.
All of the warnings I receive feels like a fear based way of being. I don’t want to feed the fear.
I want to bask in the feelings of enoughness, fullness, all that is– wellness!
So, that’s what I will do. It will be challenging because of the world I live in. Every way I turn, there will be more INFORMATION to remind me how irresponsible I’m being. My work, no, my JOY will be to transcend those thought forms, those limiting beliefs and just BE. I AM WAKING UP from the reality that I have created in the past. Glimpses of awakening are soooooooo sweet!
Life is so full. It’s full of a vastness that, once experienced, is irresistible and intoxicating. I want to spend more time there!
The sweetest twist of all of this are the experiences that show up. The more I anchor myself in this knowing, the more opportunities arise–they already have! This is a vibrational Universe, when you raise your vibration by looking for beauty, finding ways to appreciate and have gratitude for the wonders around you, those feelings will draw similar experiences to you. And who knows, maybe in the form of money! Money IS energy and it’s always circulating in my midst.
No, I don’t chase money any longer. Instead I chase the present moment where everything thrives if we will allow it.
Money is NOT the source of happiness. Freedom does not come from having money, BUT having money may just come from feeling FREEDOM!
I BELIEVE. I TRUST. I LET GO.

All we accrue,
No matter the stone,
Or steel that rusts,
Or data in bank,
Is not thing in compare
To the days that we live,
And love which we give,
To same we receive
To balance our blessings.
