Starting Where You Are With Money

We all have money beliefs, money stories, money fears and money challenges.  As a friend of mine said, “Everybody has got money stuff”.  But that doesn’t need to stop us from taking action, or healing our money pain.

Where are you about money right now?  Think about it, breathe, come back into your body, breathe some more and just accept what is right now.  Don’t try and change it, don’t judge it, don’t beat yourself up because of your current situation.  Just be where you are right now.  Remember, you are spiritual being, having a real world experience with money.  Its there a way for you to be kind to yourself as you walk this path?

We all have the tendency to push ourselves to be better, keep track of our money, quit spending so much, put more toward our credit card payment, look up our credit score.  I know, I’ve been there.  Certainly, those are good things to do.  AND, can we be kind, compassionate and gentle with ourselves as we approach our money.  Can we just accept what is, right now.  Let’s pause, breathe, accept what is, THEN move on to action.

Here are a couple of good resources to begin to work with your money and being compassionate.
