Chapter 4: Money is Like a Cat
The biggest obstacle most people face when trying to attract more money is wanting it desperately. The desire for money is beautiful, but if your craving for it is so intense that you can't enjoy your life until it arrives, you're blocking your flow of abundance.
If you spend most of your energy trying to figure out how to manifest more money into your life, you're doing more harm than good. The energy of money is gentle and wants to nourish you, but when you start craving it obsessively, it'll get scared and run away from you.
It's helpful to think of the energy of money as a cat. If you try too hard to get a cat's affection, it'll sense your neediness and run away. On the other hand, if you stay focused on enjoying your life, the cat will eventually come to you and give you its affection.
The energy of obsession repels the energy of money. If you believe you must have more money before you can enjoy your life, you'll never stop chasing it, and whatever you chase will run away from you. You can also think of money as a beautiful spiritual teacher. The energy of money is teaching you how to love yourself and be grateful for your life.
If spending most of your time obsessing over money brought more of it into your life, you would never stop thinking about it. Instead of believing that more money will bring you peace and happiness, realize that every feeling you wish to experience already lives within you. By finding the feelings you wish to experience within yourself first, you'll discover that all the money you need to live your heart's dream life will come on its own.
