| “Don’t cry for money because money doesn’t cry for you.” If you’re a fan of the CBC hit show Dragon’s Den, you may recall the episode during which financial guru and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary made this statement to a show participant. It was a profound statement which took the contestant by surprise and caused much chatter in social media circles and coffee shops.
I too took pause over O’Leary’s words and then began to contemplate the question, “What is money?”
The concept of money is fascinating because it is essential to our day to day living. People hunger for it. They hold onto it for dear life. People earn it, spend it and give it away. Money evokes feelings of loss when it is stripped from us and joy when received unexpectedly. Money stimulates all kinds of emotions.
By traditional standards money is a means of exchange for goods and services usually in the form of paper and coins. Today we add electronic transfers to that list.
But let’s take a look at the concept of money from a different perspective. Money as energy. Quantum Science has proven to us that everything in this universe, including money is energy. (Google it there is plenty of proof) You, me, your car, desk, couch, the food you eat and the tree outside are all energy in various forms.
Each object of energy has its own vibration and that vibration attracts to itself that which is most like itself. This is why hockey fans gather in sports bars to watch the game and savvy investors flock to Tri Delta.
Our thoughts are also energy. They go out into the world and attract the people, knowledge and situations which are a match and bring them back to us.
How does this apply to money? The beliefs you hold about money go a long way in determining if you will have more then enough or are just trying to pay the bills.
For instance, if a person (energy) holds a thought (also energy) and that thought is, “It’s hard to earn money,” the energy of that thought brings into the person’s experience anything that is a match. The attraction may come back in the form of struggle, financial hardship, labourious work and debt.
The good news is the same rule applies when positive beliefs about money are held by the mind. If a person thinks “I always have enough money to do what I want,” and truly believes it, that thought goes out into the world and brings back to the holder its likeness. The result is often ease, comfort and abundance.
What would you rather have in your life experience lack or abundance? It’s your choice. Money is simply energy and it’s created with a thought.
