Yesterday I asked if you are letting emotions keep you broke. The reason why of course is that for many people, money and material possessions carry a powerful emotional energy.
I know when I was poor, they had a very strong energy for me. Very negative energy, because I was jealous of people who had money and that feeling bled over into how I viewed everything to do with prosperity.
I bought into the common beliefs that money is bad, rich people are evil, and it’s spiritual to be poor. Millions of people are infected with these mind viruses. If you think you are, you will find a great deal of help with this issue in my book, How to Get SMART, HEALTHY & RICH!
I promised you an example that just happened demonstrating how emotion impacts people’s beliefs about money. Here’s the story…
Last week I sent out a post on Twitter about James Ray, and what a tragedy that whole situation that happened in Arizona was. (In case you haven’t heard, he was conducting a spiritual retreat and several attendees dies in a sweat lodge experience they were doing.)
I saw James was arrested for manslaughter and wrote how sorry I was to see that. I’ve known James for more than ten years and always felt he is a good guy. Obviously the whole accident in Arizona was horrible, but it’s certainly nothing he would have done intentionally.
Yet I received a poisonous response from one of my followers, spilling over with venom, hoping James goes to prison. Now I understand something went wrong and someone has to take responsibility. But here was the really fascinating thing about the response…
He didn’t talk about the people that lost their lives. What he was upset about was that James charged $9,000 for the workshop.
There are some real lessons about prosperity and the emotional charge money has in that. So what’s the lesson for you?
