If you have been a subscriber to my newsletter for awhile you will know that I place great importance on the subject of financial freedom. My personal tool of choice to accomplish this is trading, since in my reality it is the fastest and most fascinating way to create the financial independence I desire and at the same time have the time to do the other things I enjoy. The markets are also the perfect teacher of life, since they mirror the collective consciousness, as well as the sentiments of individuals and thus human nature.

In this article I want to explain to you today why I place such emphasis on money which many a so called enlightened guru would tell us is utterly unimportant in the big scheme of things. Well, I strongly beg to differ. In the final analysis everything is unimportant in the bigger scheme of things.

Eternal growth is the nature of evolution. As we evolve the things that once held great importance begin to become less important as we add new experiences to the canvas we call life. The more information we have about life and ourselves the more choice we have.

In our chosen reality as human beings living in this material world money will lose its importance once you have learnt that you can create it effortlessly and at will whenever you need it. To get to this point requires a certain amount of effort, particularly when presently you are experiencing financial problems. All it means is though is this: there are unresolved shadows that stop you from moving onto the next developmental stages. You can decide to work through these blockages and pave the way for growth. However, first of all you need to develop the awareness that it is okay to give yourself all the money you desire.

I would go as far as to say that you can only fulfil your potential and further your personal development if you are financially independent.

The reason for this is actually very simple: When you worry about financial matters and are finding it difficult to make ends meet your energy is lowered. Every minute you spend worrying about money takes away your ability to freely develop in other areas of your life. In other words financial worry stunts your growth and personal development.

Worry makes you tense and contracts your nadis, or energy channels. In order to grow and develop fulfilling the immense potential you have as a human being you need to be free. Free to be yourself and have the time to re-connect with your real self, your spirit in a spiritual world. Money buys you time and it can fuel your creativity and it is also spiritual, it is part of you, just as everything else in this existence is. You only are not as yet aware of it.

I am not talking about amassing money mindlessly, but to open up your receptors to the flow of money. When you enter the receiver mode you are allowing the money flow expanding the least amount of energy.

In this relaxed state, which by the way is your real self, or at least an important and integral aspect of your true self, you will be able to take in much more information in a conscious fashion. Being able to receive the largest amount of information at any given time is the secret to becoming fulfilled at al levels, be it financial, material or spiritual.

You owe it to yourself to give yourself the freedom and the mental space to do the things you feel drawn to. Contrary to what you may have been told there is no need to redeem yourself, pay off debts from a previous life, or prove your worth in any other way.

How you view your life depends on your level of development and this means your level of self awareness. With increasing self awareness you automatically move from a more self centred point of view to a world centric view. You soften as you grow and let go of anger, fear and judgement and begin to learn how to just "be" in the world.

However, in order to do this you need the financial freedom that gives you the freedom to get in touch with your true self. If you take the big picture view, you probably have chosen this experience here on earth. Realising that you are a spiritual being that has chosen a human experience is a first step on the road to develop into the more advanced levels of your awareness.

There will come a point in your development when you realise that you should give yourself the gift to further your growth so that you can make the most of this amazing experience of life. In the final analysis it is as simple as that. Anything beyond that is just emotional ballast you are carrying around with you from well meaning but misguided conditioning of authority figures, like parents and teachers. We are all on a journey which has no beginning or ending. This journey is multi dimensional, multi faceted and indeed infinite.

Your biggest challenge is not to get stuck at any level of your growth. and you have the tools available to do this if you so chose and spend your life becoming the best trader, the best mother, the ebst friend, or grow as fast as you are capable. That's all there is to it, you are the one who chooses what to make of your life, including how much money you deserve to have.
