Money is Spiritual

Area Financial Educators Use The Laws of Success

“Spiritual and financial liberation go hand-in-hand,” believes financial educator Michael Arbuckle. “Being financially free liberates entrepreneurs from the limits that hold them back from pursuing their spiritual path. For example, if they want to spend a month in an ashram or monastery, they can, rather than waiting for holidays and racking up vacation days.”

Financial Freedom Coach Sakshi Zion, who offers online marketing strategies, also agrees with this approach.

“Money is very much a part of the spiritual path,” he says. “Money is only a tool of expression and it is a human’s choice to perceive is as dirty or wrong or see it as a means to expand and create goodness in the world.”

In fact, those on the spiritual path that feel like they have a negative mindset towards money and wealth may find an entryway into making money fun through using the Laws of Success, based on the work of Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich.

Local business and money educators utilize the laws within their education methods to help spiritual seekers become savvy in business ventures.

The Law of Attraction

“The Law of Attraction basically means your vibe attracts your tribe,” says Zion. “It consists of internally thinking and feeling in ways that attract the experiences and opportunities in your physical reality based on internal methods first.”

Colette Liose, also known as the TAPNGRL, uses this law within her Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) coaching. The tapping method helps work through emotional blocks and patterns of fear, guilt and shame to then choose more positive feelings that will ultimately attract positive outcomes.

“The whole point of tapping is to bring up the memory,” says Liose. “When we bring up that memory, then we can work through the patterns. A pattern can come from beliefs stored deep within our consciousness, learned experiences, cultural expectations, family, school, TV commercials, church and more.”

Some money-blocking belief examples are “people with money are entitled” or “we have to work ourselves to the bone for money” and “wanting to make money is greedy.”

Liose suggests the quickest way to release old mental patterns and emotions is to use the Law of Attraction by fully feeling and embodying the feelings of abundance, joy and ease when handling money endeavors.

“It is not your job to figure out how to get the money; it is your job to currently feel the feelings that you would feel when you have the money.”

For example, when checking a bank account or paying bill, practice consciously feeling at ease around the financial experience. This can release tension and create new emotional patterns towards receiving money.

The Law of Mastermind

The Law of Mastermind is “the coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony,” as stated by Hill.

This law includes using collaborative efforts as a way to bounce off ideas with teammates, friends, or networking associates.

“Your proximity is powerful,” says Zion. “You are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who have the results you want. Go to networking events with others in the industry who are successful. Have a mentor. Join a mastermind group.”

One tip Zion suggests for businesses and entrepreneurs is utilizing social media as a platform for creating interactive group conversations based on community support and sharing resources. He grew his online audience to nearly 10,000 this way.

He suggests to start or join a specific Facebook support group related to your industry. Participating in the online group can help build relationships with potential clients, as well as meet future experts to collaborate with or to bounce ideas around with like-minded individuals.

The Law of the Golden Rule

The concept of the Law of the Golden Rule is “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Arbuckle believes knowing how to financially care for yourself puts you in a role to help others.

“If I am spiritually liberated, but dead broke, how can I help empower my brothers and sisters to live abundantly?”

Arbuckle helps his clients at Preservation Associates gain clarity about their finances and empowers them with tools to create plans for achieving financial freedom, such as setting obtainable goals, as well as educating on methods for working with a tangible budget, creating a 401k and getting out of debt.

“The more we become financially liberated, we are in the position to turn around and help others with the tools from our own experience.” This in return, helps the teacher gain even more clarity about their own wealth process.

The Law of Enthusiasm

The Law of Enthusiasm uses the energy of excitement to cultivate success and momentum.

“Celebrate your successes—big or small,” says Zion. “The entrepreneur path can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster ride with ups and downs. Money comes and goes. Every experience we label as a failure is just an opportunity for immense growth. So, wake up and smile. Get excited about the journey. Our joy is what carries us.”

Liose agrees. “The more you celebrate, the more there is to celebrate. The more you believe in other people, this creates joy, and joy is contagious.”

This mindset can help maintain an abundant attitude of seeing the cup half full which can be a driving force for staying motivated.

“And just have fun with it,” adds Liose. “Making money doesn’t have to be a stressful process. We can feel ease and relaxation if we choose to around this subject.”
