The Sacred in Money

By Adele Azar-Rucquoi

Celebrate your income and all it represents. Designate a special object in your home that will remind you of your income sources and the blessings each brings you.

Make sure the object is something you can see every day, such as a small statue or piece of art. Learn to love and appreciate the beauty of money in your life. Trust money as you would other forces that come and go in your life with whatever constancy and regularity.

Compose your own money prayers. Keep the prayers short. Like a mantra, voice these money prayers while in your car, on a bus, in the park, or whenever you enter into the arena of commerce. Each prayer is a stepping stone and uttered often can take you beyond financial fear, and keeping you in touch with the divine hand.

Light a scented candle when you pay your bills. Put on soft music. You are not alone as you dispense your money. You’ll feel that energy released for your money allows you to participate in something grand and mystical; the very functioning of human commerce on a planetary scale…

Make a habit of spending a small amount on someone else. Slip money into a charity box or buy someone’s lunch. Spending money on deserving people and causes makes life better.

If you believe you’re struggling to get by, reduce your giving but always practice generosity, toward yourself and others, to feel abundant. It’s law of nature: you’re richest when you give it away.
