The letter to money idea is presented in the book, You are a Badass, by Jen Sincero. In the book she says to respect money, release any old fear or resentment towards money, and to not be poverty proud throughout life. She states money is currency therefore currency is energy. She teaches eliminate using the word can’t, and to always bring your consciousness to a place of abundance, not lack. Speaking in terms of lack only creates more lack. She continues saying that to align your energy with the financial abundance you seek, there must be zero feelings of conflict, resentment, or resistance. Besides writing the letter to money to release any bad feelings that you may carry for it, she also suggests to be really detailed with numbers and research so that you know clearly where you are and where you would like to be. A manfesto is awesome for this general idea as well. She mentions that including specific amounts that you like to spend on yourself and others, or donate, are all pinpointing starting points. Write down the specific amount you’d like to always keep in your bank account. Something as simple as saying the statement money comes to me all the time could even be a helpful beginning. Thank you Jen Sincero for your incredible ideas! Now let’s bring this all into fruition.
Letter to money:
Dear ever lasting, keen, sneaky, maybe not so evil after all, money,
I used to have an unhealthy love/hate relationship with you, kind of exactly like my relationship with Facebook. That all comes to an end now.
I am writing to surrender my ill-feelings, regret, and fear I hold towards you. You have been there for me many times before, and continue to me there for me again and again. One specific time you were there for me was when I lived alone and worked as an administrative assistant between the years 2012-2014. I made good money there and it was a job I was skilled at and liked a lot.
I am beyond grateful and thankful when you appear to help with my life. You’re always there plenty for me to have food, shelter, or even get my toes done (did). I have the respect for you to appear to help with the holistic health I am inspired to pursue,which brings me inner well being, peace, and physical health.
I will always have a minimum of $2500 in my bank account and donate 10% of what I make. I have complete financial freedom.
MONEY COMES TO ME ALL THE TIME!!!
I love you money and the joy you bring into my life. Please allow me to heal any of my trust issues and resistance I have with you. Please forgive me for my harshness or contradicting feelings towards you. I deserve to receive my best so I can give my best.
Signed faithfully and with much belief,
