CONVERSATIONS WITH CLARE AND POSEY: Money Worries
March 13, 2014
Dear Clare and Posey,
I am in the grips of ego-sided Posey’s worry, negative thinking, soul-deflating world. I see the writing on the wall – or at least the linear manner of showing me what is perceived as what.
My taxes for last year showed that I employed consultants, spent money, created a website and business, but received virtually little to nothing in return. My sweet husband cannot understand how I can keep working hard with so little to show for it, and I agree – this is the crux of sadness for me.
I do work hard, I do what I consider useful soul work and the end result is energy and conscious awareness out, but really, who cares? What difference am I making in the world? If I want to continue, how can I change this old pattern of trying and not being heard? And, I am not the only one!
There are many, many people out there like me trying on their voices, looking for an audience only to find only their dog and cat love them and pitifully few others. Sigh and sadness for all of us. I have tried several businesses in the past few years, and have not found the correct process in which to sell, promote, amplify my services. I am frustrated today and when I am frustrated, I easily fall into the clutches of a spent ego.
I want to hide, cover my eyes and ears with soft fabric so I can feel that spot of safety. However, I do not want my mind to rule the day…so, can I call on you Clare to find a way to inspire me? Can I crawl out of chaos towards a soul-flavored life affirming day?
So far, my ego is winning. Clare – do you have some advice for me?
This is such a wrench of a problem. I can see and feel you give your inner most awareness via your writing and voice and you feel unsupported by those of us in the spiritual realm. You do know we do not pay strict attention to your human time line; we want to help you, we really do; can you see this as a moment of reflection to see who is winning in your mind and heart? Is it Posey and her posse? Can you give the unseen, me, Clare your deeper attention and somehow recount what you say to others – All is Well, even if it does not feel or look like it.
Last night did you not dream about people giving you money? Can you remember your surprise? Keep that image forward rather than the dismal and you will breach the divide between the mundane and the soul.
We are pulling for you!
I side with your husband – you need to start getting an exchange for your hard work. You are worth it, even if sometimes the world does not give you the kudos you need. I will help as I can, but remember, I am the eternal worrier. And, I like Clare reminding you about money coming to you.
Let’s keep that image alive and well and maybe, it will happen. Thanks for asking me my opinion – that is important to me!
