In terms of physical existence, there are two kinds of having: the material and the experiential. Stuff to own, keep, borrow; and experiences to experience. The question is, what actually matters to you? Where does your money meet the meaningfulness and Creative Genius of your life?
Does beauty matter? Does comfort matter? Does stability have great meaning for you, or the capacity to travel the world? If you say it matters to you, then it matters. When you get clearer on the “beyond-survival n’ basics” purpose of money in your life, then you’re adding to your double bottom line: creative freedom AND prosperity.
When you can create positive emotions around money, you raise your “frequency”. Your inner vibration starts to hum to the same tune as your creative power. A healthy relationship to prosperity makes for more free-flowing Creative Genius.
Note: Heiresses and tycoons may be excused from this exercise. And possibly students. And anyone with lots and lots of money socked away. Oh, and forest dwellers living off the grid.
It doesn’t matter what you do for a living or from where your money flows; declaring how much money you want to earn, attract, and throw down is mighty empowering. Ideally, what you do for a living has something to do with your Creative Genius. It’s always good to have your muse and your money in the same room.
