What’s your relationship with money really like? What would you like it to be?
Personally, money has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows and I’m curioser than ever about what’s truly possible with money that I’ve never considered. And I’m tapping into some amazing adventures using a couple tricks and tools I’d like to share with you.
Maybe you’d like to change things up in your financial reality too?
1 – The How to Become Money Workbook by Access Consciousness ™ founder, Gary Douglas. This is not a book to skim through lightly one time, my friend. Gary often recommends people read it every couple weeks for six months to a year if they truly want to expand their awareness around and flows with money and, well, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing.
Now, I’m not gonna lie and say that this exploration has been super fun at all times. I’ve had to look some of my ugliest, most insane points of view about money square in the eye. For example, I’ve had some weird, deep seeded hate with regards to money for most of my life. Even as a little kid I can remember giving up paper money in favor of smaller denominations of coins. And I come from a family with a long line of financial abuse. At one point my father told me that regardless of how much money he had, he would never invest in my business. I learned from him that when I am pathetic, he will always rise to assist me. But if ever I am doing well and creating from a place that isn’t lackful, we’ll have no relationship. The worst part of this story is that it’s generational. My dad only treats me the way he was treated. Know what I'm curious about here? What if I treated me the way I should have been treated with regards to money?
And guess what… I’m going to change all of this. While I can’t see the details of the greater future I'm creating, I know it’s possible and that it’s up to me to be the one to create it.
Access Consciousness ™ is brilliant and I’m grateful for all the tools it’s given me, including the Clearing Statement (basically a stream of words you can use like a magic wand to change things up). I’ve done lots and lots of clearings with regards to money only to find the changes to be miniscule or short lived. What I’m finding with the How to Become Money Workbook is that clearing energy only goes so far. I actually need to strengthen my energetic awareness in totality and this, Sweet You, is just a choice.
There comes a time when all that’s left in order to make big changes is choice.
I’ve been reading through the workbook with anyone, anytime and the thing I see so many people doing is asking to simply POC/POD everything that comes up rather than be with the uncomfortable awareness of the life they’ve created and the living they could be creating.
Folks, you’ve got to have tenacity here if you really desire change.
2- Letters to Money. Early on I heard someone ask, “What if you treated Money like it was your lover?” That question became the inspiration I needed to begin writing letters to Money, as though we were in a partnership.
When I first started the correspondence more relationship insanity than I care to admit in a public blog came up. I’ll say this much though, I was a needy, demanding, uncaring, insecure, ashamed, embarrassed lover to Money. I had Money sooooo incredibly twisted up that I couldn’t see the light of day! Even so, I kept writing every day for a few months and Money started showing up in my life.
And then I stopped. I must’ve figured I’d reached my limit and that things were great enough. And then Money stopped showing up and I stopped doing any business. And then I had enough no-Money and I picked up the pen again and jumped into the workbook again and everything changed.
In fact, things have changed so much after only a few months that I’m just returning from a month long adventure that took me from my home on Colorado’s front range to Steamboat Springs for a consciousness series that somehow included a helicopter ride, delicious steak dinners cooked by locals I had just met, and an all inclusive pass to ride the mountain and soak in the pristine resort’s outdoor hot tub; a 5 day stay on a yacht in San Diegos’ Shelter Island Marina that included biking magnificent ocean paths, playing with the happiest magic makers on the planet, and being whisked away for an off the beaten path tour of the city that took me from cliff to mountain top to pier to aquarium; and after being home for 2 days I hopped in the car to head for southern New Mexico for another adventure in consciousness. I was greeted there by a bubble bath drawn just for me, breakfast cooked by the kindest host family I can imagine (and how does it get even better), coffee served in bed and a desert landscape that drew me to breathe the space of the planet like never before. This my friend, just a few months after a long stretch of ZERO INCOME.
I’m not telling you this to brag. I’m telling you this because truly, anything is possible.
I’m still writing Letters to Money. In fact, here’s and excerpt from today’s entry:
Things feel slow and stuck today. Can we go beyond that together and with my body? Can you show me what I’m missing here? Anything I’m doing to prove for and against anything with you, I’ll let that go. Can you help me with that?
And so much has come up with regards to you during the last few weeks of travel. Will you help me sort out what’s actually true for you and me? I’m curious if something else is possible that hasn’t been possible with you, my body, my life and living, sex, business, and relationship. Is this something we can create together now?
Money, what do you require of me? What do you know? Can you be louder than my stupidity and solidified points of view and louder than everyone else, even my friends, and louder even than everything showing up right now?
What can I change to have clarity with you, my living, the planet, my choice and the future.
Thank you for being with me Money. I’m grateful for the cup of coffee you provided this morning and for the lemon juice that settled my upset tummy this afternoon. Thanks for how you use my mom to get to me sometimes. I love that pathway. It feels really good and I am grateful for her. Would you find more pathways like that to get to me? I like it.
So yeah. 2 things. Get and actually DO the How to Become Money Workbook. Do it alone if you must but what would be possible if you were willing to read through it with anyone asking for change? Start a relationship with Money. Treat it as though it were your lover. Acknowledge what you like about it, where it is showing up, no matter how small. Ask Money to be there for you. Do it with letters if you like.
If it would change something in your life to have some assistance, guidance, community, and more information, please consider joining me in a 12 week exploration in discovering and committing to your financial world.

I wonder what the world would be like if we were all willing to have Money support and play with us?
Lit and Comp teacher gone rogue, disguised now as a Living and Relationship Coach, Body Worker, and Access Consciousness Facilitator, I still sneak off to write because, well, it makes me come alive and it's one of the joyful ways I create the future.
