Ok. Here we go again! Money and sex. Do you know why? Because the post that had the most views over the last 20 days of my 365 Days of Gratitude was the one entitled “Money, Sex and the Black Cat”. Somehow I doubt that the black cat had something to do with it. Money and sex are unhealed wounds in many people.
As I said in my first post on the subject, these two topics – money and sex – have become taboos in our society and people go through their entire lives not having one or another, or both; or not enjoying one or the other or both. It is really tragic and I want to invite you to entertain the beauty of having an abundance of money and physical love.
If there is one thing that you can always count on me for, it is the fact that I do say it as it is with no judgment; with compassion, because I understand. I believe with every cell in my body that truth sets us free. Every single time we choose to be honest with ourselves and with others we heal, we get cleansed, we evolve. Only good comes out of our truthfulness and honesty.
So today I am grateful for the truth. The truth right now is that my post about money and sex had the most readers. I honor this truth.
Money and sex are not that different. In fact, in order to have an unobstructed flow of either one, we must HONOR who we are. If we want abundance in all aspects of our lives we must be willing to be ourselves. Abundance of joy, beauty, money, friends, love, sensual experiences, success, healing and anything else we desire will enter our lives when we take the great risk: speak the truth and be who we are.
My good friend Melina Abbott says “When you honor yourself, you honor everyone else”. In order to honor yourself you must become authentic. Authenticity means undisputed credibility; it means to be true to one’s personality, spirit, or character; genuine, real; not false or copied. Being authentic means you stand by yourself in all your choices, words, actions and mistakes. Living authentically is not always easy, as it requires you to pay attention to your words and your actions; to continuously stay in touch with your feelings and ask yourself the questions that you would rather not ask.
“Authenticity is the alignment of head, mouth, heart, and feet – thinking, saying, feeling, and doing the same thing – consistently. ” – Dr. Lance Secretan
So here’s my invitation to you: think, say, feel and do the same thing – consistently. And when things get off track, return to the truth, over and over again.
This is a great book on the subject of truth in all aspects of who we are “Truth Heals” by New York Times best-selling author, health & wellness expert, and spiritual teacher Deborah King.
