Last year my reverend gave a series of talks on a book he read entitled Twelve Powers in You. The book describes physical, spiritual, and emotional aspects of the 12 powers inherent in each of us. Fascinated by these talks, I’ve decided to expand on them through the money perspective that I often see things being a financial planner.
Spiritually, love brings life to the world. When we love, we experience life in its fullest. This is evident if you’ve visited anyone near death. The times they’ve felt the most loved are the times they felt the most alive.
Emotionally (soul), when we can live and express from our heart, we open barriers and experience the most growth in our life.
Physically, love is represented by the heart AND the circulatory system. We think of the heart intuitively because it is constantly giving us life, but it’s the circulatory system that moves that life (blood) around in our body.
Interestingly, if our brain (Faith) didn’t have blood (Love), it would begin to die after only a few minutes.
So what does Love have to do with money?
Love moves our life in certain directions. You might work in a job you don’t like because you want to support your loved ones. Just as your heart pumps blood to your body, you life (love) is a reflection of the circulation of your cash flow, knowingly or unknowingly. If you’ve ever heard a spiritual leader speak of being awake, you can think of it as being aware of your life, or in this case, awaken to your finances or cash flow.
So how do you purify your cash flow and change your life? Figure out what you’d LOVE to do in life!
Most people go through life yearning for something better, but never take the time to sit down and spell it out. When you clarify in writing what you’d love to do with your life, you bring love/life to the world. You change that intuitive feeling into something you can mentally and physically grasp. Once that’s born you can start to look at your current cash flow, or where you’re spending your life, and make adjustments.
Some of you might say, I can’t do it. It’s not that simple. That’s where Faith comes in. Without faith, love can’t flourish. Just like without blood, the brain dies. In order to examine your cash flow, I’d suggest reading Organize Your Finances – Cash Flow.
