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…
