Money is energy. Many of my business coaching clients are asking me–how do you manage financial resources when the external world is in a state of contraction?
Life doesn’t get more contracted than a global quarantine and stay-at-home orders.
Following sound principles of energy is especially important whether you are a business owner or work for someone.
In a contracted external energy state, it is vital to be very discerning about where you are investing both financial and personal energies.
You need to limit direct expenditures. Why? Money is energy–when external energy is contracted, you need to make a conscious effort to make sure to consolidate money and nourish it, instead of inviting it to leave you.
This is the time to limit paying cash fees for anything that is not absolutely essential to health, wellness and survival.
Since I advise clients to preserve their cash resources, I make it easier for them to access my services and products in a way that helps them to preserve their cash resources.
I offer more donations-based and pro bono strands of the work to help my clients during periods of contraction –as well as being open to barter and other creative ways to preserve a fair exchange of energy.
Interestingly, because I am honoring the energy of money in this discerning way, those clients, who have an abundance of financial resources and the strong belief that they have a spiritual stewardship of money, are donating signficiant financial resources to help support Aiki Healing to purchase and distribute herbs, supplements and classes to the community at discounted rates or free.
Now, if I were to spend my resources on extraneous items not related to the essential wellness of my family and community, I would create an energy of not nourishing money during a contracted time.
I would invite money to leave me and make it difficult for money to return to me.
Similarly, our personal energies are resources that we need to be discerning about during a period of contracted global energy.
We need to align with others who have centered and laser-focused energy, not scattered energy.
Imagine the wind scattering your hard earned dollars. This is what happens when we align with business colleagues, clients, friends or family members who are scattered.
We all know and love people who are just all over the place–this is the time to put some boundaries around spending a lot of time with such individuals.
Thus, during a period of contraction, you will see me consciously choose to redefine my contacts on both personal and business levels.
You will see me limit interactions with colleagues and others who are not focused in their energy.
You will also see me nourishing contacts who are living in harmony with energy cycles.
You will see me also aligning with colleagues who are coming to the table with laser focus in terms of collaborative projects.
These are colleagues who have planned ahead for challenges, and who are also flexible to change mid-stream to meet changing circumstances.
It’s not that they are not challenged like anyone else when crisis hits. It’s just that they have cultivated the ability to stay centered and can regroup with focus and resiliency versus reacting with scattered energy and fears.
They see the opportunities in the challenges and have the focus to meet and bring those opportunities to fruition.
So, as you go through your weekend–consider how you are engaging the energy of money and how you are using your personal energies during this contracted time.
Is the way you are moving drawing money towards you or repelling it?
Let me know how you are doing–and right now, as part of serving community–it doesn’t cost you a monetary fee to engage a dialogue with me personally around these ideas to help you refine how you are preserving your resources.
Stay well and healthy !
