How’s your money rhythm?

It’s that busy time of year where the peace of the holidays starts to get replaced by our compulsion for activity. It is frenzy, it is drive, it is ‘doing for the sake of doing’. All of which exhausts the creative spirit.
You know that, right?

When your palms are itching

It’s easy to fixate on MONEY as the answer to your problems. ut often MONEY is taking the place of what we really need. It is an emotional placeholder for something deeper and less tangible that we are looking for out in the world. Something less transactional and something more enduring.

First, calm your mind.

u and the ticking clock of your finances chimes loudly in your ear to become focused on the issues at hand. When you are focusing on the financial storm outside of you, you are oblivious to the inner guidance within you, you are unaware of the opportunities that surround you, and you are weighed down by fear to move in a helpful direction. Y woes around?

Count your blessings.

It’s easy in our bottom line culture to only count your bank account as resources available to you. Yet when you step back and widen your gaze, you might see that you have more than you think you have.

The MONEY dump

Have you ever felt that drop in the pit of your stomach after dropping some MONEY on something, say, a car repair or even a fun vacation? shrink your bank account. Maybe you flash on someday there being only one zero in your account with no other numbers to keep it company. Absolute zero.

Money does not equal love.

It can be so many forms of chasing your emotional tail when it comes to MONEY and your creative career. Each accomplishment pushing a key part of your creative vision further away. Or so it seems.

Trust the exhale.

Say, you plop a big chunk of change down on something you love, that vintage album you could never find, that apartment you swore you could never afford, that dream trip that finally felt right. ike they are the new normal.
