Nancy, a client living in a small city near Chicago is worth about 10 million dollars, and she is constantly worried about money.
Christi, a school teacher in the U.S. South, never worries about money and probably never will.
Susan, who is worth 2 million dollars, and has never worked a day in her life, has never worried about money and likely never will.
Paul, a small business owner, still worries about money, but not so much as he did when he was working a job where he was paid twice his current yearly income. Every year, Paul worries a little less about money.
So what is the secret to stop worrying about money?
The secret is to understand that money is an energy that comes from the future.
The degree to which people worry about money or not, has very little to do with how much money they currently have, and everything to do with how much money they expect to receive in the future.
Nancy worries about money because her fortune was made by her ex-husband, and even though she owns assets for 10 million dollars, her huge alimony is about to expire, and she can’t see where new income will come for her in the future.
Christi has tenure at her job, and knows that every few years, as she continues to accrue seniority, her salary will go up. Christi’s kids are college age, and their studies are being paid by a combination of scholarships and grants. She has a robust retirement account, and if she ever had an emergency that she could not solvent by herself, she is so well known and loved in her community that her former students would probably raise money for her on the internet with no trouble.
Susan was born into a very wealth family. Her 2 million dollars are invested in a trust fund that is well managed and has continuously grown at a good pace each year. She receives a very handsome monthly stipend and there is no reason to fear that it could stop in the future.
Paul worried constantly at his old job, because management was known for firing employees whenever they saw that they could hire someone else to do the same job for less money. Now that he has his own business, he worries because he never knows how many clients will walk through the doors of his store and make purchases, but every year he worries a little less because more people learn about his business and recommend him to others in the community.
As you can see, the only way to stop worrying about money is to have structures in place by which you can reasonably expect that you will receive money in the future, both in the short and long term.
In Feng Shui, we know that money behaves like water, and that it naturally goes down in value, unless it is wisely invested. In Feng Shui, money is part of the career area, not the wealth area. But money feeds wealth. Knowing this basic difference can help you set up your home for both increased abundance in income and consistent wealth growth.
