Money is a funny thing. There’s so many ways to think about it. I’m a frugal gal at heart, mostly based around a belief that I truly need very little. And the less I really need, the more money I have left over for things I want.
In ‘Puck of Pooks Hill’ there’s a story describing the flow of money through the lands as a river of gold. If you paid attention and knew where to look you could follow it’s ebbs and flows and find your fortune. In the story, the gold becomes a mechanism to free the people, but there’s constant allusion to it’s power to corrupt.
I like Leonie’s idea better, that an exchange of money is the visible part of a deeper exchange of energy. So spending is a way to send your energy out into the world. It’s a way to honour what you truly value.
This month I’ve given up money to value my time. I have Tuesdays off to honour my intention to write and to study. It’s a pay cut, but one I’m glad to take. Four days a week at work is so much more fun than five!
there’s been a bit of a shift at work. There’s a position opening up that could be a promotion for me. It would require luck, synchronicity, and a lot of support from management, but what if? What if I could get the promotion AND stay at four days a week?
The raise would balance out the part-time, and I’d be back on the same money I had before. I’d have more interesting work, and I’d still get my time to write!
I really believe the universe created this opportunity just for me, because I took the risk and chose less. She is honouring my faith in the abundance she can provide.
So this is my most sincerest money wish. To have my cake and eat it, too.
