Money and Spirituality – Bridging the Gap


Guest Article & Image by Emmanuel Dagher – When you think of, hear about, or see images that depict financial abundance, do you cringe or get offended in any way? If you don’t, then I am so grateful to know that you have done the inner work to expand yourself into greater states of understanding when it comes to your experience with money. However, if you do get offended when something relating to money enters your experience, maybe it’s time to take a closer look at why this is happening.

To heal any antipathy we may have toward money, it is important to understand what money actually is and know its purpose. Everything in the Universe has a unique energy signature, meaning that everything in the Universe is a living, breathing entity. Some energy signatures may appear to be more alive than others, because they manifest themselves in louder ways. We clearly see this in human beings and the animal kingdom. However, even though the plant or mineral kingdoms may not have as “loud” a personality, they are still fully alive and thriving. So if everything is alive, then money itself is not a lifeless object. It is actually a living, breathing energy here to coexist with other living, breathing beings.

Imagine if you projected the beliefs you have about money on to your best friend by saying, “You are not spiritual, you cause problems, you are bad and evil, you are not enough, and you are just a lifeless object. I feel guilty for being around you. People have to struggle, fight, cheat, steal, and work very hard to have you in their lives.” Wow! Think about how traumatized your best friend would be if you projected all of this on to them for years and years! I know that if this were happening to me, my desire would be to run in the opposite direction of the person who was abusing me in that way.

Well, my friend, this is exactly what we have been doing to money, especially when we see it as being anything less than spiritual.

This realization completely changed my life. I started to see that by projecting my own judgments on to this living, breathing energy, I was in fact moving myself away from the spiritual path I so desired to experience. After going through a grieving phase as a result of realizing how badly I was treating money, I started forgiving myself and asking the energy of money to forgive me for not knowing any better at the time.

I then began asking money itself questions like, “How can I support you, love you, nurture you, serve you, heal you, and bless you even more?” I had never thought to ask these types of questions before. Up to that point, it was always about me, me, me and focusing on my own insecurities when it came to my relationship with money.

Imagine asking your best friend questions like the ones I just mentioned. They would probably want to be around you all the time. Thankfully, this is exactly what began to occur in my life with how I experienced money. I started attracting more of it, because I was treating it like I would a kindred friend. As I have mentioned, money itself is a living, breathing energy that is here to fulfill its purpose of being the embodiment of giving and receiving, just as we are here to fulfill our own purpose. Like the principles of gravity, aerodynamics, attraction, and much more, there is also a principle of circulation. Money is the physical representation of the exchange that takes place during the principle of circulation, which is all about the natural f low of giving and receiving energy. That’s all it is!

So with this new understanding, we can actually see that money has been spiritual all along. All of those misconceptions we placed around money had absolutely nothing to do with money and everything to do with our own behavior toward it.

The next time a thought appears in your consciousness that money is anything less than spiritual, use it as an opportunity to experience a huge breakthrough.

The mind likes to stay in its comfort zone, and many of the misconceptions we have around money are just the mind’s way of protecting itself, making it feel safe and
secure so it does not have to look outside itself.

The triggers we feel when the word “money” comes up are indicators that something within us is looking to expand.

It’s our birthright to be abundant and prosperous. It is part of the well-being we get to experience in this world. The Universe itself is a vast, unlimited, and ever-expanding energy, so why would we think we are anything less than that?

I hope these words have given you a new perspective to consider that will ultimately support you in finally being at peace with your experience of money and financial abundance. Money needs our compassion, support, and love. This is how we will heal it from the trauma it has endured for thousands of years and what will heal our relationship with money once and for all.

May prosperity rain upon you always!
