Breaking through the Barriers…
After spending a morning attempting to ‘solve’ some of our Mothers financial struggles, I walked away feeling frustrated.
Not directly at her as she suffers and lives with great sadness, but at the choices she continues to make that support a ‘struggle’ mentality and existence.
I realise that the belief systems and environment that we were raised in was one of constant financial stress and worry. Our parents had four children and our Dad, ran his own business in the film industry. If you freelance in any field, you know the reality of living in the unknown… Our hippy Mother, beautiful she was. A teacher, but mostly at home raising her four wildlings in the most creative and loving space. I remember being young and our Dad saying ‘all you need is love’, which is true and I am so appreciative for the importance shared on living a life full of love. But in another breath or direction, I would hear our parents share ‘we just can’t afford it’, I could energetically feel the financial unease. I grew to develop a belief that money equaled worth and because I felt like we were poor, I wasn’t worthy. I was four, so this belief runs longs and deep.
I should insert here – we were not poor, not by any measure. We had all we needed, we loved each other. Our family lived in a cute timber (character) home that our artistic Dad build with his own hands on 12 acres in the country. I have grown to realise from 10 years of travel, we in the west are quite often never satisfied. We live in excess. Everything is relative but shit, spend time in India, or another impoverished destination… then you will truly see and experience what ‘poor’ or ‘without’ is.
If you were born in a Western culture, in my humble opinion, you are already a millionaire.
Today I was reminded by my encounter and deep family triggers that a lack mentality – is not the reality that I desire to live in. Or choose to live in. We all have the power to create an abundant life for ourselves, including yet extending far beyond monetary measures. We cannot make others see life this way, regardless of how much we love them. But you? You can do anything. You can break through the habits, release the beliefs that hold you back and redirect your course. YOU CAN.
Abundance is relative. It is a perspective. And maybe just by reading this short post, it will evoke a little questioning of your own. And if you feel triggered, this is a good thing. Whenever we feel discomfort from a situation, it is an opportunity for self reflection and discovery.
So my loves, this evening I invite you to ponder….
Do you feel abundant?
How do you feel abundance?
Are you creating a story? Are you living from a victim mentality?
How could you exercise more gratitude?
How could you take more action to create the life you desire?
I sit here typing, reflecting, pondering over the questions above myself. I wear my sparkling Citrine ring. In this moment, it is a reminder of my personal potential.
You see, these pieces of jewellery we make are not restricted by what we attach to them. We offer an intention and then hand them over to the world. We hope you wear your pieces with purpose. We hope that they remind you of something that is important to you.
Like my ring today : Alex, you are not what you come from. And with that, I walk forward. Continuing to forge a path of my own.
You being here makes me feel abundant. So, thank you.
Can you relate? Share with me, I would love to share in your experience….
