On Sunday I got a up close and personal with one of my own patterns around money – going unconscious. Yes, all too often, I go unpresent when dealing with money. On Sunday, at the end of a workshop I gathered the payments together, holding the crisp notes in my hand as I chatted to a participant.
We decided to go together to look at the campus gardens, and I remember instinctively lifting my hand to put the notes into the front pocket on my jeans. I can remember thinking that putting the money there would crumple the money, something I didn’t want to do. The next thing I remember is walking along the path discussing the gardens. The memory of what I actually did with the money was simply missing!
This is exactly the process of manifesting what you don’t want. Going unpresent! By doing that on Sunday I could have lost my takings for the day. Lying in the back pocket of my jeans, those notes could have been washing-machined to nothing!
So, with three clicks of my fingers, (which I call the click tool, a way of creating a gap between an event and a response) I will sharpen my money practice and invite myself to be present. When I am present, I am in the presence of the Divine Life Force, God.
