Its Ok To Love Money

Break Your Negative Thoughts about Money

So all your life you've been told money is the root of all evil, greed is bad, rich people are selfish, its not good to love money and so forth. This kind of thinking it known as the poverty mentally, saying and thinking negative things about money, "I can't afford that", "We don't have it in our budget", "Why am I always in debt". Well when you do this, you scare money away.Your subconscious is a very powerful tool, you use 90 percent of it when you think,drawing what ever your thinking to you. Its nothing to be ashamed of, we were all taught this nasty behavior, because its all we heard and saw as children, but now that we know better,we can change this and start attracting wealth into our lives one day at a time.

Lets start with the root of the problem that I heard time and time again growing up as a young girl, "Money is the root of all evil". Now lets ponder on that for a minute, what makes it evil? If it wasn't for money we wouldn't be able to pay our mortgage or rent, resulting in us being homeless. We wouldn't be able to buy food, resulting in hunger, the electricity bill wouldn't get paid, resulting in darkness. My old attitude and i still have to catch myself is to curse the bills that come in every month, but in reality, and I know it sound crazy but, we should be thanking them. Our cable and Internet is basically entertainment but with out it we would probably go nuts!! So next time your round of bills come in monthly, stay calm, take a few deep breaths and think positive, pay them and write a nice little thank you note on them.

Money is not the most important thing in the world, love is, and it is ok to love money. Money is an energy, everything is energy, its a scientific fact. Its an energy that allows us freedom, freedom to travel, freedom to shop, freedom to give!! Actions begin with love, do you love money? Well if not I encourage you to fall in love with it. Sit and think for a minute, what are your beliefs about money? How much do you deserve? Have positive thoughts about money , change your negative money energy and watch it flow into your life. Remember, one very important statement, You do not serve money, money serves you!

Here are some good techniques to use, because we've been programmed for so many years to be negative towards money, it might take some help, and I know it did for me, so Id like to share these techniques with you and some of these methods are used by some of the wealthiest people around the world. Step 1. Visualization Seeing is believing, form images of money in your mind, imagine yourself spending it on whatever your heart desires, Traveling to exotic islands, running on sandy white beaches, rides on jet planes, skiing in water so blue it tantalizes you. Driving your dream car, shopping, buying things you once thought you could never have. Now if you have a million things running through your head daily, like me, you may find it hard to focus, I discovered these little mind movies on YouTube, that I will be sharing with you today. some are only a few minutes long and i watch them daily, sometimes i get lost and watch them for hours because there so amazing, they help me stay on track and focus. Step 2. Feel it Our emotions play a big role in how we feel whether its gonna be a bad day or good day. Emotionally stay positive,feel like a million bucks, look like a million bucks, why? Because money is on its way, stay positive. Step 3 Be Open Be open to receiving the money, don't be blocked thinking all this visualization is stupid but you still do it daily, you cant have a negative and a positive going on at the same time. A lot of these methods i use are taken from the popular movie, The Secret (Ask, Believe, Receive) and they can be applied to anything in your life really, not only money, but since money makes the world go round we will start here.

Another tip, unfortunately we have a lot of negative people in our lives, moms, dads, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters,uncles, cousins. Even though your open and ready,they will not be. And its not there faults, just years and years of negative programming. It can get frustrating at times dealing with negative attitudes, so one thing I do is, just simple keep it a Secret. You don't want there negativity to creep into your brain and discourage you, its so easy to pull you back into that poverty mentally, and we don't want that. So try to connect with others on the same level. I hope this article is helpful, especially if your looking to make money starting a new business venture or making money online, these are good tools to start with, freeing your mind of negativity and moving towards your dreams with a positive mind set is always a great starting point.

I don't have a dislike for money. I've always loved since childhood the rattle of money in my piggy bank. I agree that having money brings comfort. It allows one to be charitable, and that is important to me. When ammassing money becomes the focus of life, or the need for material things spirals out of control, we Do have a problem. Good management and investment is altogether different if the motive is not greed. Thanks for your good hub!

@Cat on a soapbox, I totally agree about what your saying about greed, it is a horrible thing. Im glad your one of the fortunate ones who were born into positive money energy. Just curious, where your parents positive money people? My goal for this blog is to help people, were all worthy of wealh and abundance, coming from a negative money back ground (very poor) I was able to turn that around. Thanks for your comment.

I think we see evidence of that turnaround from poverty to wealth often. Many of today's successful business leaders and entrepeneurs came from poor households. They were determined get out of it. My parents were practical.

I agree with taskgirl-I love what money allows me to do-the freedom of it. I enjoyed this hub and found it very well presented. You have brought up a several very important points. I'm happy that you were able to reverse your family upbringing re: beliefs about money. That is one of the key points in understanding the flow of money. My family also raised us on the 'lack' belief instead of the 'abundance' area.

I took several 'challenge your beliefs about money' workshops in the 80's to examine the ideas of family of origin. It was through a Unity church in Michigan.

I'm not sure what your background is, but I find your information interesting and helpful. Great job.

My sis got married a few days ago and it was interesting to watch the people at her bachelorette party all with different financial statuses. The financially stable ones were a lot more generous. Having balance with money can improve your life, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to have "just enough" to make your life comfortable, whatever that amount is.

You have made many good observations here...something a lot of people would be better off understanding the nature of wealth and money. "Born to be Rich" agrees with all of it. I thought I would checf in on one of your money/wealth oriented pieces and was rewarded with a great piece of writing. Well done.

If handled CORRECTLY, then of course, money shouldn't be looked at in a negative form. The entire claim of money being the "root" of all evil isn't because money itself is evil, but what the person with the money does with it.

I'm not sure what kind of financial background you have to write such a Hub, maybe you just came across an amount to where now you can wipe your brow and realize your life is in a better place. Or you are old school money, for example your family owns the color "blue", in any case, you are probably well behaved in your spending habits. Now, to answer the negative part of your comment, have you been privi to see those that have struggled all there lives to make ends meet, or work hard and long just to stay "happily" broke? When individuals that have never had money all of a sudden come across an amount...they go nuts. They purchase way beyond their means, and on things they don't need, but always wanted if they ever had money. In actuality, all you have to see are the one-hour specials they have on people that won the state lottey, and are now broke. That is the root of all eveil in action. That's it. Heck if you got, flaunt it, if you don't, at least purchase the ensemble to go with the image you're trying to convey to your fellow peers

Thank you so much for writing such a positive article about loving the benefits money gives. I most definitely love those qualities of money, but that doesn't mean I mistreat others to gain money. No, I absolutely love using money to bless and show love to others. Nothing says love more directly, powerfully, and succinctly than to put your money where your mouth is. Not everyone can do it, but I have given my last dollars just to experience the joy of lifting someone else's burden and bringing joy to a sad situation. So, yes, I absolutely love money, and I believe money loves me too!
