Just like a snake sheds it's skin when it must move forward, we also have that ability to look into our selves and see, notice, feel and know when some part of us is ready to be 'let go' of for good. We can release old ideas, notions, self-beliefs, self-images and old habits, patterns and behaviors that we no longer need, want or find useful. This can cover any and all aspects of our humanness.
One of the deepest, oldest, sometimes most painful aspects within us is how we learned, were taught, shown and treated related to money; our abilities with money, our earning potential and how to see ourselves related to money, abundance or resources in general.
We have mostly learned to bury it, ignore it, deny it, distract from it or endlessly worry about it. Very rarely do we stop and give thanks for all we have received and rarer still, do we let go of false ideas, concepts, effects or affects related to money, especially concerning those we love, ourselves or any others around us. It is as if these old feelings become so trapped and shut off, which prevents overall healing and happiness.
It is as if these belief systems live deep inside us, never quite seeing the light of day until or unless it is pushed forward to reveal itself. Are we too embarrassed or too fearful or too guarded? Is it our deepest place of mistrust in terms of relating to other people? Like if others were to know about us with money we would be harmed, tortured, made fun of or our lives turned upside down because of our identification with money and whether it is either up or down or changing! If so, how can we learn to let go of that level of negativity and instead be grateful for all we have known, learned and understand about ourselves in that regard.
Through gratitude and forgiveness of our self and others, we can offer it up! We can offer up our fears around it, our worries that surround it and transform it deeply in order to trust money and our new idea of it now in our lives. To trust what is truly correct regarding abundance for who we are now. This will come once you can surrender your deepest and oldest concerns, fears, and gut wrenching what ifs from the past, appreciating all you have been through related to money. In that open space, that renewed place, new opportunities can and will come.
When we want new clothes or fresh food, many people clean out and clear out their closets or refrigerators. Once it is completed, there is a clear open space for newness and replenishment. It is always refreshing and renewing to do that. Same with our attitudes, outlooks, self-images and ideas regarding money, abundance and resources. We can redo and renew our old, stuck ideas about ourselves and our lives in this respect.
Welcome, then, that open, fresh, new space and place by truly and deeply letting go of what is no longer you in that regard. Offer it up to God Guidance, your Higher Self, your deepest spiritual connection, whatever form you most relate to and trust! Notice how you feel, watch how others treat you, become aware of feeling lighter and brighter! Yes, you'll find it on a deep level but trust yourself to let the old feelings and fears around it go and watch your life transform. You will feel most uplifted and inspired and it is GOOD!
