Lightworker Q&A: If I turn down money, will I block my flow of abundance?
I was recently asked a really great question about abundance in my Facebook group, and it gave me the idea to start a Lightworker Q&A series on this blog. So here we go!
“M” has had people offering her less than what she feels her product and time are worth, and she asks: When it comes to manifesting money, is it ok to turn down money or is that blocking the flow of abundance?
There is so much juicy goodness to this question! Let’s start with boundaries. First things first, you set the price! You teach people how to treat you, so if you don’t have firm prices set and have flexible boundaries, you’ll attract people who want to push them. Rather than wondering if people will value your products and services, you need to decide how YOU value your products and services and what rate would feel like a proper energetic exchange for you.
Feeling your own value is what makes you a vibrational match to attracting people who value you.
When you create these standards of receiving, you let the Universe know what you expect and will manifest accordingly. Because remember: You ARE the Universe. Turning something down that doesn’t feel right to you is called self respect.
Does this make you ungrateful? No way! Feeling like you need to take anything that comes your way is a lack, or fear based, mentality. When you feel like this, your energy is telling the Universe that you need to just take what you can get because more might not come, and that’s not the truth at all! I used to struggle with this one a lot. I worried that if I said no to being paid, no matter how undesirable the situation, that the Universe would think I was ungrateful and punish me by not giving me more. Here’s the spiritual reality:
The Universe isn’t masterminding behind the scenes about how to eff you over. The Universe speaks in energy and is just reflecting yours back to you.
So if you feel like you’re being punished, you’re punishing yourself. And if you feel like you’re being blessed, you’re blessing yourself. Ultimately if you believe you’re blocking your flow of abundance, then you will be. And if you believe that people won’t pay your rate, they won’t. On the other hand, if you believe money is always flowing your way, then it will. Your world is shaped by your beliefs. (How empowering is that?!)
I absolutely LOVE answering spiritual business questions, so if you’ve got one then head over to my contact page and ask away! I also want to give you a tool to help you discover your answers for yourself because I’m all about helping you find your power within. Your teachers are great guides, but you are the only one who knows what’s right for you.
The tool is pretty simple! When you have a spiritual question or doubt creep up, take 3 deep breaths and check in with how it makes you feel. If it feels like love/ease/joy/wellbeing/light/expansion, then it's aligned. If you feel afraid or would be disappointed by the answer, then it's not aligned. This is a general tool, but this always remains the same: You know your truth by how it feels. Trust that feeling.
