Did the title grab your attention? Today is Day 13 and quite suited for this topic. To be honest, when I sat down to see what I was going to write about and the words of the title popped into my head, I raised my eyebrows and I asked out loud “Really???”. I wanted to dismiss the idea, but the words kept rolling in my mind over and over, so today I am writing about money, sex and black cats.
As we did with the number 13 in many parts of our world, we managed to create fear of money and fear of sex quite effectively. Our education did not include emotional intelligence or self love classes; it definitely did not include courses about the energy of money, about sexual energy and how to allow an unobstructed flow of both. Instead we were told all the wrong things that created unnecessary pain and suffering in our lives. I am convinced that many people feel the same. Today I am grateful because I have systematically worked to demolish the limiting beliefs brought about by my upbringing, schooling and living in today’s world.
Here’s a short list of the things many people have heard more than once. The number 13 brings bad luck and it is to be feared. Money does not grow on trees. Sex is sinful. Rich people must be crooks to have that much money. Money is evil. Black cats are evil, do not let one cross your path. You must work hard for your money. There’s never enough. If I make more money, then someone else will have to make less. Sex is dirty. Money brings unhappiness. Black cats are linked to black magic. We cannot have a floor numbered 13, so let’s just jump from 12 to 14. You get the idea.I am sure you can add a few more sentences to my list of absurd, born from fear and fear creating examples.
Money is a neutral energy, it is not good nor bad. We give it one meaning or another and our relationship with money reflects exactly how we feel. Are you pleased with the amount of money flowing into your life and do not feel guilty for having it and spending it? If not, start looking at what is your real belief system about money. Sexual energy is actually creative, expressive energy and cannot be good or bad, it is neutral as well. Are you pleased with your sensuality and the sexual energy flowing through you? If not, take a deep breath and bring up what you really believe about sex. The more you examine your deep beliefs, the more awareness you will get and your relationship with money and your expressive, creative sexual energy will improve.
As for black cats, having lived under the same roof with mine for almost 17 years, I can tell you that when Kiki crosses my path, she is asking for food or she wants attention. But that’s as black magic as it gets!
I have a lot more to share with you on these topics, and I am sure that they will appear again in my gratitude blog.. Until then, here are two fantastic books:
“The Wealth Chef” – by Ann Wilson – this is the education I wish I received when I was younger, but am very grateful to have found it now.
“The Honeymoon Effect” – by Dr. Bruce Lipton – the concepts explained in his book will allow you to improve the relationship you have with yourself and with others.
… and I imagine there is a book somewhere about the positive power of the number 13. If you know of one, comment on my post and let me know.
