In society’s current survival-based mindset, we are wired to make money out of fear rather than out of love. We are wired to think that we need more, more, more, and that we cannot survive and make ends meet even when we are making a decent amount of money. This is why no matter how much money you might be making, it might never seem like enough. You will attract situations in which you are forced to lose money or start spending beyond your means if you are attached to this belief about money being linked to survival. When money is linked to survival, you are actually going to repel it.
It can be very difficult to let go of this preconceived notion — to make money out of love. Fear is a lower level emotion that is held primarily in the root chakra, which is also where our ability to make money lies. This is why the two are commonly linked. But you cannot manifest abundance until you take the fear out of the equation.
Money is green. Green is the color of the heart chakra. When we are vibrating from a place of love, from your heart chakra, doing heart-centered work, when what we are doing is filling our soul with this vibration, we begin to attract money.
I know from my own personal experience, whether I was making $11 an hour and living at home with my parents, making $19 an hour and living outside the home, and then at the highest I was paid working for someone else at $27 an hour, I found ways to spend the money quickly because I was not doing these jobs from a place of love. I was doing them from a place of fear. Fear is an unattractive vibration by its very nature. Whether you are trying to attract a lover or financial abundance, to do so out of fear will only be a disservice to you and to the rest of the world who is receiving that fear-based energy.
This has been one of the most difficult beliefs for me to let go of on my journey, but once I started to let it go, the money followed. It may not make sense to our logical mind at first, or to anyone around you, especially one that has been geared towards a survival mindset over its evolution, but as we start to ascend beyond the mind and ego and into the heart, we naturally begin to attract more abundance of love and money into our lives. As the old adage goes: Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.
