Yesterday, I proposed that we begin to shift the energy that is held in our own cash. Money is a magical tool of Earth, as contrasted, say, with a wand, which usually is associated with the element of Fire. So by receiving the blessings and energy of the Earth within it, you can cleanse the fear and negative charge that your currency holds.
Then, as you pay it to others, I have suggested you do so in a very conscious way – knowing that you are sending out a prayer and a blessing into the hand of every person receiving it from you. I recommend that you make this a regular practice. Every dollar, twenty, fiver – every note that passes from your hands can be a love note from Gaia to the receiver, thanks to your intention and blessings.
Similarly, author Barbara Wilder tells us that in the Memo portion of every check that she signs, she writes, “Money is love.” We can open our awareness, we can ground ourselves and make magic with this gift that is given by Providence, Goddess, Gaia, God or The One of Ten Thousand Names (pick your favorite!). When we do, we realize that money is love. By sharing it, you are acting from the knowledge that we are all loved and supported by the Divine, right down to the penny.
On Friday, Terry from Earth Reflections asked how we can transfer the Divine energy to our ATM cards or other plastic that replace our cash with corporate symbols. It is certainly revealing that corporatism is the new conduit of wealth, and whatever prayer symbols are on our money have been superseded by their symbols.
We can certainly smudge and clear the energy in our plastic, and ask the Earth’s blessings upon it. After all, plastic is not artificial – nothing is. Plastic it is made from real things, resources from the Earth that have been transformed by human manufacturing. Significantly, they are composed of petrochemical materials which are, arguably, more precious today than gold.
However, in actual terms of wielding money as a tool of our intention, our ATM and credit cards offer unprecedented power and magic. Because our names appear there. We sign our name on every plastic card we use.
So next time you need to sign a new card, make a small ritual out of the occasion. Make sacred the act of signing this magical device that is going to move money all over the world in your name.
And each time you use it, whether swiping it on a reader, or typing in the numbers for an online purchase, turn it over, take a moment to look at your writing and your name. Instead of dead presidents, your living hand is upon this money. It is your intention that has brought it value. You have direct power over its energy.
Tomorrow, I’ll offer an interesting side effect of this practice. I hope you’ll visit again!
