Money Worries are a Faith Issue,
Not a Financial One!
By Karen Russo
As the world economy rebuilds from the economic collapses of the last few years, many people are feeling afraid. Anxiety about money pervades our Western culture. As much as our media and cultural attention focus on glamour, riches and winning prizes, we also have a constant, nervous conversation about losing, making mistakes, getting cheated and suffering financial disasters. We worry that there are not enough time, resources, deals, education, opportunity, land, businesses, clients, people, energy or information.
More Money won’t make you feel secure… it really won’t!
It may feel like all you need right now to address your fears is more money, right? Maybe you have a number in mind for income or list size or portfolio value that you just know is ‘it’. That idea – there’s a number out there that means I’m safe, powerful and free—is a potent and pervasive idea.
But that idea is a lie; it’s a myth that money will make you safe or free. Now, I get it, money can buy things that make us comfortable. And if we’re in poverty, money can provide for basic needs. Yes, when you’re afraid about money and you get money, you can absolutely get some short term relief in your circumstances.
However, if you don’t address the fear, it will come back. The money doesn’t fix the fear. What I’ve discovered in years of research and mentoring with thousands of business owners from around the world is… well, more money can’t eliminate the source of your fear. The connection between money and spirituality shows something that might surprise you. Money worries are ultimately more of a faith issue than a financial one!

Fears about money stifle your Spirit.
All fear is a form of separation. The basic anxiety about money comes from a thought and a sense of being separate from life itself. You think you’re a finite being defined by the size of your database, or your credit card balances, or the fluctuations in your income statement. And those things go up and down all the time. When they go down or go away or we don’t have them, we feel afraid.
If you feel you’re not a permanent part of the eternal, abundant, infinite source of the all-good, then, yeah, you get scared. People who are anxious, upset and distracted don’t make the best financial decisions—and they don’t feel inspired, grateful and generous with their money—or with sharing their gifts with the world.
Shift money worries with present moment gratitude. Connect with your Spiritual Source.
The problem is an issue of faith, and the solution is a spiritual connection to your wholeness. In creating The Money Keys, I studied the mindset and behaviours of what I call ‘conscious wealth creators.’ These individuals are both financially successful on the outside and connected to larger purpose in their lives. One tool they use to address financial concerns is to be intentional about cultivating their spiritual connection—they choose what they have faith in. They place their faith in the source behind the channels that money comes through.
What do people really want when they’re worried about money? Behind all the craving, goal-setting, worrying that overwhelms many business owners is a deep desire for peace of mind. And peace of mind is a spiritual state of being where you are connected to something—God, Source, the Universe, your values, your ‘Why’, the cause you’re working for—beyond the ups and downs of financial flows. When that connection is strong and present, you have spiritual security from which you’ll handle the challenges in your business.
The next time you feel concern about paying a vendor, investing in a marketing program or raising your rates use that emotion as a signal to stop, shift, and cultivate the experience of spiritual connection. Start with gratitude to create a sense of peace. Take a deep breath and look around your money life. Be grateful for the source behind the money that does flow to you. Appreciation fills your mind, calms your breathing and allows your body to relax. Now choose to act, speak, invest, spend and save. You’re building your faith in your spiritual source… and opening up to more peace in your money life.
“Hi Kristen, On this rainy Sunday I have been re-listening to each of the Prosperity Pyramid activation exercises. What powerful and detailed work you have shared with us here! thank you so much Kristen.” – Toni M.
We are vibrational beings living in a physical world – and yes, money is a big part of that world, HOWEVER, we are vibrational beings FIRST. What does that mean to you?
It means that your only focus is to get your vibration in harmony with your desires. The Universe doesn’t hear what you are saying, it can’t hear you repeating affirmations about money, the Universe responds to 1 thing and 1 thing only and that is what you are vibrating. It doesn’t matter if you are in a high vibration about money – it just matters that you are in a high vibration.
Make this your focus – if you are looking at what you don’t want, use that as a way to pivot into focusing on what you DO want. Keep pivoting – stay mindful and your vibration will steadily rise and when it does, your physical manifestations will reflect your high vibration!
