I wanted to make a post about money. Yep, money. I don’t think about it anymore when it comes to working with students. Just don’t.
I was noticing that although I was focused on helping students – as well as adding up the money, making sure I was making a good living for myself, etc… I think it was screwing with the energy. I may have been flipping back and forth between the two ways of thinking too much.
Although I thought I was being responsible by looking at expenses and luxuries and profit, etc… I don’t think it was working… again, not as often as maybe I was doing it.
Something was off.
So now hmm.. I guess I will rephrase the title of this blog. It’s not that I don’t think about money anymore… it’s just that I think about it differently.
Let me explain…
These days I think about money when I am ready to put out a new product or service to the market. I get a feel for the value it’s offering and then what a fair exchange would be for what I am giving. Then I ask Spirit to help me with a number. I have my own process with that and that’s how it goes.
Then I set the price and that’s it.
Then I don’t think about money again.
Whoever signs up is great. I am grateful for them joining me to play. And that’s exactly how I look at it. People to hang out with. People to teach. People to do what I love with. That’s it.
The exchange turns to love. And just love.
Before, I think it was too mixed.
For example, I would have an event scheduled. I would see who was coming, how much that added up to, how much I was making that day, and then I would come up with how I would reward myself that night, and then I would be happy.
There was a lot of money thoughts floating around.
Now, I know how much I charge for said event. I’ve come to peace with that number and I leave it. I don’t think about it anymore. Sure I mark down my gross income each day or week or month, but other than that, I don’t think about the money. I am happy for whoever comes and I focus on the heart energy exchange we are doing – that’s it.
It’s been working for me so I wanted to share it with you.
It’s simpler this way.
It also comes with the assumption … and the knowing that G-d / Spirit / Source is taking care of me (and all my expenses and luxuries…) More on this in the next post…
