My wife and I keep fighting about sex and money. I think she charges me too much, you know – Rodney Dangerfield
Money is an expression of abundance and abundance is a state of ease and wellbeing. And since any good feeling state is a state of power, abundance is also a state of power
Money, therefore, is an expression of the state of power. But there’s a lot of misunderstanding about power.
True power is not something that can be used against someone else because true power comes out of love.
When money becomes a means of control over others, which happens when we act out of fear, then money becomes an expression of fear rather than of power and love.
Many people, myself included, have grown up with unhealthy attitudes around money because we have observed and experienced the use of money as a means of control and an expression of fear (even if we may have mistaken it for power), rather than an expression of abundance, power and love.
So, what is power if it is not over someone or something else?
Power expresses itself in a variety of ways – through self-confidence, conviction, determination, perseverance, acceptance, openness, inner happiness, freedom and adventure!
When we understand that this is how true power, which comes from love, is expressed, then we’ll stop being afraid of holding and expressing power.
Neither will we be afraid of people whom we have thought to have great power over us or others. They don’t have power. What they have is fear, which ironically, is the ignorance or unawareness of their true power!
It is only natural that achieving inner happiness involves shifting towards greater levels of power – not ‘power over’ (which is fear) but power within!
What kind of power fear struggles does your relationship express?
You can change that right now by taking the time to tune into your inner happiness and the power that comes with it
