  • I keep my wealth circulating and creating blessings for others and for me.

    02/17/17 - I am looking at ways that my wealth is circulated and creating blessings for others and for me. At my office this week there was a cool opportunity for me to bring an experience in to one of our meetings. I shared a stack of questions that my friend Chad gifted me from his company We! The cards have questions that go below the surface of human to human connection. For two rounds we were able to ask each other questions of each other and learn stories about each other's lives that hasn't happened yet. I am curious to hear their experience of the result of such an effort but for me it certainly created blessings and circulated my wealth throughout the company.
    Upon reflecting on this affirmation experiment today, I am drawn to these two moments.
    One where my underlying beliefs hold me back, this notion that to be wealthy, to circulate wealth, and to purse wealth means that I am no longer noble or pure. That the receiving of a gift of wealth means that the receiver must be non-wealthy and thus I would need to look down upon them, think less of them. Or that their perspective of me and my gift would be limited... ultimately, that the circulating of wealth wouldn't and could not create blessings for others. While in my brain, I know this isn't true... it remains a thought pattern that gets disrupted each time I state this affirmation.
    The second moment is the excitement of circulating. How when there is movement, there is friction, and from all of that there is the potential of a build up of the necessary charge to exponentially expand that which is being circulated. The magnetic nature of energy flowing through a conductor. The way like attracts like. The magic comes when this is not simply a 1 to 1 exchange... this idea of circulating says it is given and received and in that exchange there is an element of expansion that tickles me to no end! Like an eruption of spontaneous laughter, it is contagious and effortless.
