The Connection Between Money And Spirituality
It's a common belief that money and spirituality don't mix: If you're spiritual, you shouldn't want money. People who want money are greedy and materialistic.
But this way of thinking is detrimental. In fact, we couldn't disagree more with these assertions: money does not inherently breed greed and materialism. In our view, money and spirituality actually go very well together, and together can bring abundance into your life. If we feel (even slightly) that money is bad, we'll have a hard time creating financial abundance in this lifetime.
All too often, incredibly smart, caring people with amazing ideas and talents for transforming the planet hold themselves back from earning money because of a belief, either conscious or unconscious, that it isn’t spiritual to earn money.
Or maybe that if they earned a lot of money, that they would somehow be corrupted or “bad” in some way. They may also believe that you can’t be a good person and wealthy at the same time – that you somehow have to do something bad to become wealthy.
And unfortunately in this day and age, it’s all too easy to turn on the news and hear about corrupt businessmen and politicians who have done something unethical to earn money. Sadly, there is not enough news about all of the amazing wealthy people that are changing the world in powerfully positive ways.
Here are 4 examples of why wealth and spirituality are highly-compatible. By understanding that money and spirituality complement one another, you'll open the gates to attract more money into your life, and be able to enjoy your abundance in a deep, fulfilling way...
Here are 4 examples to help you connect wealth & spirituality
1. Your soul is infinitely abundant.
As a spiritual being, you're automatically and completely abundant. In other words, your spirit is wealthy! And because you are your spirit, you're inherently wealthy, too.
The spirit is the aspect of us that's connected to love, peace, happiness and bliss. Do you think this very essential part of us identifies with being poor?
No! It's the ego — the small sense of self — that allows us to feel limited (financially, as well as intellectually, professionally and otherwise).
A spiritual life is synonymous with an abundant life. When we allow ourselves to identify as inherently abundant from within, we create abundance in the form of money and wealth in the outside world.
2. Spirituality is about expansion, and so is money.
Your soul wants to expand and grow; it does this by having many life experiences. In this way, money is a tool that allows you to live full life!
Does this mean that money makes everything perfect? No. Does it mean that money is your source of happiness? No, it does not. It simply means is that money is a tool, one that will help you have the life experiences you want to have.
Money is not the answer to everything, but it's not useless either. And thinking of money as "the root of all evil," as the saying goes, will not help you in your path. Think of it this way: financial resources give you the opportunity to have many life experiences. The growth that occurs as a result of those experiences is completely aligned to a spiritual life.
3. Money is energetically neutral; it's the energy behind it that counts.
Money itself isn't good or bad. It's paper! It's not consciously making decisions on its own. Therefore, it's neutral. It's the energy with which we approach our finances that determines whether money feels "good" or "bad".
Money that's made at the expense of others probably feels tainted because it's used in an egocentric, selfish way — which feels energetically negative.
By contrast, money that's made in a way that serves people feels good because it's used in a loving way — which feels energetically positive.
If your personal actions with money are responsible and kind, then that's exactly what the money becomes. It's an extension of your energy, so the way you choose to use money is ultimately what determines the vibration it carries.
4. It's possible to imagine a world where the majority of money is in conscious hands.
Our editor here at Wrist Chakra, Lora, once heard a well-known yoga teacher say that as spiritual people, we should prioritize creating financial abundance. "After all," she said, "Imagine what the world would be like if the majority of money was in conscious hands."
This concept is very profound! What if the majority of money in this world was used in life-preserving ways? Can imagine what that would be like?! Recognizing that this way of thinking about the world is available to us is empowering in and of itself, and can really help reframe each of our relationships with money.
When you have money, you have the resources to reach out and help many, many people.
On a fundamental level, this is what spirituality is all about. We need to remember that money itself is not good or bad; if you use money in a way that enhances your own life and lives of others, then it will simply be a powerful spiritual tool.
