Heal Your Money Karma

From Heal Your Money Karma On-Line Course

by Spencer Sherman & Brent Kessel

The following is an excerpt from the “Heal Your Money Karma” on-line course. If you would like to enroll in the course, click here.

Heal Your Money Karma

When we gain awareness of our ancestral money patterns, we have the ability to create spaciousness around our unproductive money habits and beliefs. Spaciousness helps us loosen our grip on old patterns so that they can begin to unravel and we can develop new money habits and beliefs that serve us. We are often impulsive when it comes to money. Training ourselves to pause in the midst of reactivity energetically opens us up to a creative thought, a new insight, a new way of behaving. The money breath you will learn, for example, adds a much-needed pause to this contracted area in our life.

Transforming Old Patterns

The spiritual tools are now available for us to challenge our initiation into money and undo the conditioning of childhood money messages. In place of worn beliefs and undermining behaviors, we can affirm new beliefs and behaviors which align with who we are today.

Healing Emotions Around Money

Money has remained in shadow for so long that when we consciously bring it into the light and simply acknowledge the darkness, shame, and fear that we have around money, we begin to transform our old patterns. Being in denial, obsession, or resistance with any of our patterns, keeps them firmly in place. If you doubt this, observe your friends’ money patterns. If they are in denial, obsession, or resistance, don’’t their patterns stay in place?

Discovering and Balancing Your Financial Archetype

Balance

Your life experiences caused you to develop certain financial beliefs and habits and to avoid others. We have noticed that, although the details of people’s behaviors and problems are unique, there are great similarities among certain groups of people. We’ve created some broad definitions of these groups, or archetypes, so that people can learn from others who have gone through similar experiences. The value of defining these archetypes is that they give us a basis for understanding how we came to have our current financial life, and practices to pursue in order to create the financial life we most want.

Living an Authentic Money Life

When we gain awareness of the truth of our conditioning, we are naturally compelled to increase our resonance with what we really want in our lives and to create an authentic money life for ourselves.

A Living Example— – Healing the “Money is Difficult” Belief

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that money is difficult. As we understand our ancestral patterns and our archetypal money tendencies, we learn how to balance this tendency and create some spaciousness within which to create a paradigm shift in our lives. For me (Spencer), the thought that money is difficult began to shift at the level of the mind. Then I noticed that every cell in my body began to respond. Changing our beliefs will actually create new neural pathways in the brain. Take a moment to say “money is difficult” and notice how you feel. Now say “I have all the money I need at all times” and notice how you feel. Imagine the life you would live from these disparate messages. Which do you choose?

This is about healing and undoing the old programming so that we can uncover our own path towards financial wellness, generosity, and prosperity consciousness. Unfortunately, so many of us have been living the lives of our ancestors despite our best efforts not to continue this conditioning. Now, you can use revolutionary tools to birth a new relationship to money that actually nourishes our spirits and allows us to live gracefully, mindfully, joyously, and abundantly on this planet.

First, become aware of how your ancestors handled money. Start noticing the connections between your lineage, your childhood, and your current adult way of being around money. After watching the video, take time to write down answers to the following questions and/or discuss with your money ally.

• How did they earn it?

• How did they spend it?

• Save it?

• Invest it?

• Worry about it?

• Talk about it?

• Were they free with it?

• Generous?

• Careless?

• Frugal?

What are your own money shadows in your life today? HINT:

These are your money thoughts and behaviors that keep you from absolute bliss and abundance in your life and that you don’’t want others to know about.

To continue healing your ancestral money patterns:

1) Read and do the exercise on your “Family’s Money Mantras.”

2) Make the “Money Breath” a daily practice.

Family Money Mantras

Let’s begin by recalling the favorite money aphorisms or pieces of wisdom that our parents and grandparents delivered with seemingly benign purpose. What did they tend to say repeatedly about money or their relationship to money? When you are feeling money stress or worry, what mantras from your family seem to be causing that stress or worry?

For example, whenever I [Spencer Sherman] take a day off at the beach or do anything that can’t be measured in dollars, I hear my father’s voice say “money is the only thing that will give you security,– count your bank balance.” Often when I’’m shopping, I hear my mother’s voice say “We can’’t afford it,” and then I hear the opposite voice of my maternal grandfather say “Just go for it anyway.” No wonder we’’re so confused about money.

Write down the first mantras that come to mind for each of the following family members (it’’s ok that some might be blank):

• My father’’s money mantra was:

• My mother’’s money mantra was:

• My maternal grandfather’’s money mantra was:

• My paternal grandfather’’s money mantra was:

• My maternal grandmother’s money mantra was:

• My paternal grandmother’’s money mantra was:

• The cultural money mantras I heard from TV, books, religion, etc. were:

Ask yourself these questions and write down your answers. Or even better, get together with your financial ally and ask each other these questions (writing down this information is key to increasing your awareness, tracking your progress, and producing the largest money breakthroughs during the 8-week course):

• How does your current money life reflect these mantras?

• What are your predominant money fantasies or worries?

• How do you feel about spending money within your means (or not)?

• How is your spending in alignment with your spiritual and inner values? How is it not?

• Do you save money? If so, is it done in a way that reflects a sense of spaciousness and belief in your future, or not?

• Do you invest money? If so, what feelings do you experience around investing? Do you invest with a sense of desperation to hit a home run?

• Do your investments reflect your values, or not? If yes, how?

• Do you earn money with ease or effort? Describe.

• Do you earn money in ways that are consistent with your values?

• Do you borrow money with ease or stress? Describe.

• Do you truthfully communicate about money with your partner, friends, children, and colleagues? Do you honor your boundaries?

• Do you wisely and purposefully give money away?

• In general, do you radiate a consciousness of generosity and prosperity or one of scarcity and fear?

• Do you see any parallels between your ancestral money patterns and your own?

The Money Breath Meditation

money karma meditation

Our money thoughts happen in a nanosecond. We fear scarcity in one moment and fantasize about getting rich in the next we hate money, then we see money as energy, and then we feel resigned that our money lives or relationship to money will never change.

Perhaps you’’re saying to yourself “I’’m the product of my ancestral money lineage and there’s a family history of pain, difficulty, scarcity, bad money decisions, or just ignoring money altogether.” The purpose of the money breath is to slow us down whenever a money thought or money interaction occurs. Slowing down allows us to create enough spaciousness for us to see the truth, access our intuition, and see the higher path to take in this moment.

A pause of even one nanosecond around a fearful money thought can mean the difference between despair and joy, scarcity consciousness and abundance, stress and peace.

This simple breath exercise can be a powerful tool for overcoming money madness, which I define as any irrational or impulsive habitual money behavior that does not serve us. Once you are familiar with the exercise, skip the first part and you can use it in your daily life at any moment: while shopping, while doing your taxes, before or during a job interview or sales meeting. You can shift from fear to peace.

Part 1

Notice:

• How do you feel physically? Tense, relaxed, energized, tired?

• What is your posture like? Slumped? Rigid? Relaxed?

• How busy is your mind? Racing? Full of thoughts? Quiet? Calm?

• Can you feel your breath moving in your body? Where?

• What is your mood like right now?

• What is your level of wanting to “do or change” something? Low, medium, high?

Important: Commit to giving full permission to be as you are without any attempt to correct, change, or better yourself in this moment.

• Feel your feet on the floor.

• Press down lightly on the floor with your feet and then release.

• Notice the places where you make contact with the chair.

• Are you trying to hold yourself up?

• Relax your muscles and let yourself be held, without collapsing.

• Allow your full weight to be carried by the chair and the floor.

Now bring your attention to your breath.

Where do you feel the physical sensation of your breath? As it moves through your nose, mouth, throat? Do you notice your chest, ribcage or belly moving when you breathe? Sense your breath between your shoulder blades and feel your spine responding to the breath.

Now notice the cycle of your breath: the inhale, the exhale, a pause, and then the next inhale, etc. Notice which is longer, your inhale or your exhale.

breathe

 Part II

Take a deep breath. Inhale through the nose and let your belly, rib cage and chest expand as you fill your lungs with air. One, two, three seconds.

At the top of the inhalation, lungs filled, pause for one second. Now exhale, letting your breath out easily through your open mouth for six seconds–twice as long as your inhale. At the bottom of the exhale, say to yourself, aloud if you can: “May my money wisdom increase.”

Repeat 2-3 times, then rest. Notice how you feel now–without having to change or do anything. Just be for a moment.

How to use the money breath in your daily life:

The aim of the money breath is to interrupt our automatic or impulsive money responses, and create a gap in our thinking that wisdom can fill.

I invite you to do the money breath throughout your day, whenever you think about money (listening to the financial news, for example) or are involved in a money transaction–whether it’s balancing your checkbook, rebalancing your investment portfolio, shopping in a store or online, paying for services, making a donation, etc.

I especially recommend doing the money breath any time an emotion around money is triggered— whether it’s fear, anxiety, greed, resignation, envy, ambition, or the need to win. This reactive state causes an adrenaline rush in the body. That, in turn, constricts your blood flow, speeding up your breathing, and makes your breath more shallow. Shallow breathing means that less oxygen gets to the brain; less oxygen to the brain means the brain doesn’t work as well as it can or should.

Doing the Money Breath burns off the excess adrenaline your irrational money behavior or money madness has prompted. It relaxes the blood flow and deepens your breathing so that more oxygen gets to the brain. You will think more creatively and clearly. You will replace your money madness with money wisdom. Psychologically, you’re bringing in your adult to care for your inner child. That inner child strained to breathe during money situations long ago, and now we have the ability to infuse that child with oxygen so that he or she feels safe enough to allow our adult wisdom to lead and make decisions instead of the scared child.

How the Money Breath works: You’’ve just learned how to slow down your whole system. On a physical level this increases oxygen and blood supply to your brain and all your cells. This actually increases the likelihood that you’ll be able to access the best source of information, namely YOU. When you ask for your money wisdom to increase, you affirm your own innate ability to transform your relationship with money regardless of how much money you have. You are calling your own money wisdom forward which has been blocked by impulsivity and old habits. The breath helps to open the channels of wisdom and clarity.

May your money wisdom increase throughout your week!

You complete me – is that your job?

you complete me - is that your job

I read this excerpt in an article from Martha Beck in Oprah magazine:

Who will complete me?

This is closely related the the question Why aren’t you completing me?, which, in its various iterations, has destroyed more relationships than restless legs syndrome and herpes combined.  Memorable movie dialogue notwithstanding, wholeness is possible for every individual, and only whole individuals create truly healthy relationships.  If you’re searching for the One to complete you or raging at the One who isn’t doing so, you’re looking at the wrong One.  Try the nearest reflective surface instead.

I’ve talked about this subject for years.  In fact, I corrected someone who introduced me as my husband’s “better half” when taking the stage saying, “I’m not half of anyone.”  Kind of an interesting way to take the stage and of course I didn’t plan it – but it’s a major pet peeve (and it did get a good laugh).

But truly, I learned this by examining my first failed marriage and doing a massive amount of personal development to work on my most important relationship – the one with myself.  Until you feel good about that, no other relationship will work, much less fill up the hole that is left by not having self-acceptance and love.

A love relationship is a beautiful thing and can enhance your life immeasurably.  When you find someone to truly partner with, someone who challenges and champions you, it’s amazing.  But it can’t last if you’re expecting that person to fill you up or complete you.  It’s not their job – nor is it yours to do so for anyone else.

I wrote a blog about Neale Donald Walsch and created a graphic showing one of my favorite quotes from him that illustrates this:

Neale Donald Walsch Purpose of a Relationship

Of course, the most famous instance of this impossible notion was in the movie, Jerry Maguire when Tom Hanks proclaims “You complete me.” to Renee Zellweger.

Movies often set up false expectations when it comes to relationships.  Even if it is only to plant these ideas in the subconscious. Either way, it can actually do a disservice to those that are not emotionally grounded.

In a blog from Relevant Magazine, the author Gary Thomas writes:

This notion that we need another person to complete us is, in fact, one of the more misguided and perhaps even devastating myths alive today. The origins of this “soulmate” line of thinking aren’t found in Scripture, but rather in the writings of Plato, who surmised that there was once a “super race” of androgynous humans that made an attempt to overthrow the gods. This super race consisted of “round” people, comprising both male and female in one person, and in that state they were getting too powerful. So Zeus said, “I shall now cut each of them in two … and they will be both weaker and more useful to us through the increase in their numbers.”

This forceful separation supposedly left both halves desperate to be reunited. When the two halves did finally find each other, all they could do was cling to each other, which led to their deaths “because they were unwilling to do anything apart from one another.”

Zeus thus saved the day—deprived and desperate humans were no longer so powerful and no longer such a threat to the gods.

Notice that in Plato’s view, romantic love makes us weaker, not stronger. In fact, Plato’s version of the “soulmate” is a tale in which it is not advisable to spend most of our lives desperately seeking our missing piece. Many people do, in fact, live this way—on a constant hunt to find their other human “half,” and then desperately attempting to keep that half.


So I guess we can’t blame only Jerry Maguire for this idea. Nonetheless, whenever anyone states the need for someone else to fill them up or complete them, it’s a clear message that there is much work to be done.  Not on a relationship, but on the person themselves first. Then and only then will they be ready and able to achieve a happy and balanced relationship with someone else.

You WILL stay in that “place” …

And “push away” all of the greatness that’s waiting to enter your “space.”

Until you find reasons to be happy, grateful, excited, etc.

And then tell the world. (Videos, blogging, audios)

People can tell by your communication …
(or lack of it)

As to what’s REALLY going on.

Which is why right now you’re either “attractive” or “repulsive” to others.

YOU control your own outcome.

There is no solution outside yourself.

It was great hearing Simon Sinek speak in Las Vegas.  What was even greater was meeting him at a VIP reception and finding him to be a genuine and an all around great guy.  It’s equally great when people are as nice in person as the persona they project on stage.

Simon is a leadership expert and a damn fine author and speaker.  If you’ve not read Start With Why, I highly recommend it.

With the Mind-Opening Dr. Joe Dispenza from What the Bleep

With the Mind-Opening Dr Joe Dispenza

I first heard of Dr. Joe Dispenza when I saw the movie What the Bleep Do We Know. (Fabulous movie on Quantum Physics.)  He was also in the film Further Down the Rabbit Hole.

I was so excited to get to see him in a more intimate setting at Unity of Phoenix.  He was there twice.  I got to spend some time with him after each appearance and have learned so much from him.

The pictures above and below were when I got to see him for the third time in the Bahamas as he was a featured speaker for a company we were working with at the time.  It was great to see him this time as by now he knew me and we got to have some really great conversations.

Dr Joe Dispenza What the Bleep Dr Joe Dispenza What the Bleep

The biggest thing I learned from Dr. Joe is that many people have a physical addiction to struggle.  It explains why battered women stay with their abusers and also why many people continually create chaos in their lives.

When you understand that the receptors for the chemicals released are the same as the receptors for heroin, it starts to make sense.  We become physically addicted to these chemicals and when things are not going along as normal will actually create scenarios to bring about the stress needed to release the chemicals we need to “get the hit”.  All unconsciously, of course.

This made so much sense to me when I fully got it as to why people would continue to trash good results or go back to struggle situations.  In understanding this, it’s how we can then change it.  It’s a matter of changing the connections in our brain.

Here’s a writeup that gives more information about Dr. Joe’s background:

Dr Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He has a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience and also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude.

Over the last 11 years, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in over 17 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain.

His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities.

His new book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, the mind, and the body. The book explores “the biology of change.” That is, when we truly change our mind, there is a physical evidence of change in the brain.

As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease.

In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities in people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their mind, which then changed their health.

Here’s a great video from Dr Joe’s

Meeting Neale Donald Walsch – Conversations With God and The Secret

Meeting Neale Donald Walsch

I had another great opportunity when volunteering at Unity of Phoenix.  I assisted Neale Donald Walsch who you might remember from the film, The Secret, with a book signing after he premiered his Conversations With God movie.  It was an extremely thought provoking evening.  Both in watching the moving and then also hearing Neale speak.

It was fun to get to spend some time with him afterwards.  I only got a quick cell phone shot with him and it was dark outside, so the quality isn’t the best, but I’m happy to have the picture nonetheless.

I’m looking forward to reading a book of his that I haven’t yet titled Home with God: In a Life That Never Ends.

Here are some of my favorite Neale Donald Walsch Quotes:

3 Weeks With Les Brown

We had met Les Brown before for a workshop at our spiritual center, Unity of Phoenix, but what was really exciting was having him as a our minister for 3 weeks!

Les had always had a dream to be a minister and the lead minister at Unity of Phoenix, Rev. Richard Mraj had always had a dream to meet Les Brown.  So when they met and got to spend some time together, it worked out perfectly that while Rev. Mraj was going to be away, Les cleared his schedule to stand in.  We were in for an amazing 3 weeks!

What was really fun was when our little guy, Tanner, then 10, got to meet Les after the first service.  Tanner had heard us talk extensively about Les over the years and had seen many of his videos.  So he was so excited to meet him not only to tell him the Les Brown quotes he knew but to also tell him his own quote, “If it’s impossible, make it possible!”  Les loved it!

3 Weeks With Les Brown

It was just really great to have an extensive amount of time with Les.  He took a genuine interest in what who we were and what we did.  It was also great to hear much more in depth stories and teaching because he had the time with us.

Here’s one of my favorite videos from Les:

My Breakthrough with John Demartini from The Secret

My Breakthrough with John DiMartini

Another great teacher from The Secret that I met at Unity of Phoenix was Dr. John Demartini.  It was a fabulous evening with many gold nuggets.

The most impactful thing I learned from him and that I’ve taken into my life was his practice of intense gratitude.  Spending time each morning feeling gratitude to the point that tears were streaming down his face before he ever gets out of bed.

I admit that I don’t always get to that point, but I do practice gratitude every morning.  Beginning with just giving thanks for being given another day.  Feeling love for my family.  Being in joyful anticipation of the day.  When I start my day like this, it is markedly better than the few times I am in a hurry and end up feeling frustrated and agitated.

So if you learn nothing else from the wealth of teaching John DeMartini has offered to the world, spending time in gratitude each morning will enrich your days and ultimately your life.

Here are some of my favorite John Demartini Quotes:
