There’s at least one thing that every lightworker I’ve met has had in common: Money issues. Every healer, coach, teacher and other type of lightworker has had to dissolve her blocks to money before she could become successful in her life purpose.
In my own life, I’ve picked away at this issue, peeling away layers of restrictions that included vows of poverty and feelings of shame over how I’ve handled money in the past.
During a recent writing meditation, I received new information about lightworker money issues that blew my mind.
You’ve certainly heard the saying, “Money is the root of all evil.” We know, of course, that money is just an inanimate thing; it’s greed, lack, and fear within humans that cause problems when money is around.
And yet, in the depths of your consciousness, money is the root of evil – if you definite “evil” as “separation from God.” Here’s why: In your many lifetimes you’ve had a breadth of experiences. In some of them you chose money, wealth, and power over God, Love, and Light. You behaved as we see certain people with wealth and power behave today.
The negative karma that you accumulated as a result left a mark on you – to the extent that your soul has placed an income ceiling on you in this lifetime.
When you were preparing for this life, you knew that nothing could stand between you and your Divine Purpose here at this pivotal point in history. You also knew, however, that a vow of poverty would be too severe; this capitalist society would require that you have some money for your own basic survival. But to be safe, you put vows and limitations on yourself so that you would never have enough money to get into trouble. It’s not a vow of poverty; it’s a vow of “just enough.”
Look at your life now. Are you stuck in a place of “just enough”? Do you find that every time you’re close to getting ahead, a large expense like car or home repairs suddenly pops up?
If your lightwork is your business or your day job – for instance, being a healer like me – then this income ceiling takes on a sad irony: Instead of being the thing that keeps money from getting between you and your Divine Purpose, it becomes the very thing that blocks you from your purpose. This is the new insight that blew my mind open:
By limiting how much money you can have,
you limit the level of service that you provide to the world.
Think about it: In our society, money is the currency of energy exchange. It’s how abundance flows from one person to another, and it’s how we assign value to things. In order for someone to find value for your services, they have to have exchanged something, typically money, in order to receive them.
But here’s what happens when you have a ceiling on your income: You will only serve as many people as it takes to make “just enough” money. After that, everything grinds to a halt: Your schedule gets mysteriously full. Or you develop a “revolving door” where you’re always getting new clients but old ones don’t return. (And you’re conveniently “too busy” to reach out and invite them back.) Or the marketing copy that you write to connect with new people keeps missing the mark. (I had all of these, by the way.)
All of these manifestations of the income ceiling lead to the same thing: Limiting the number of people that you serve, because to serve more would bring you more money, which you’re not allowed to have.
But imagine if your income ceiling was dissolved so that you could make as much money as you wanted. You could receive more and more clients, providing them more and more service, and graciously receiving money on behalf of their need to assign value to your services.
It isn’t even about wanting the money; it’s about letting it flow through your life. When you reach the point that you have more money than you can use, you can recycle it back out to the Universe through purchases, donations, and investments.
…which, by the way, is a great way to fuel the Cycle of Abundance for yourself and others. Receiving money becomes part of your service to the world, not only as part of the exchange with your clients but also as funneling it back out into the world where it’s needed.
How has the income ceiling manifested in your life? How would things be different for you if you were able to dissolve it?
And if you had more money than you needed, how would you funnel it back out into the world?
