I recently had a private session with someone who was very concerned about having money. There was no financial struggle but sill the issue of money was always in the forefront. She sabotaged relationships if the suitor wasn’t affluent. She deferred to her parents way into her adulthood because they were rich. Happiness was elusive.
In her session, it became clear that there was no separation made between happiness and money. She thought of them as the same. She did not think it was possible to have happiness without money. But I made her look at the situation a lot closer. She did know rich people who weren’t happy; so the words did NOT mean the same thing. She had chosen money over relationships. Yet that did not make her happy either.
Happiness and money may be on parallel paths sometimes, but that doesn’t mean they are synonymous. I brought up the analogy of owning a dog. If your dog doesn’t come to you, and you chase after it, it will keep running away. This was similar to her relationship with money. She was chasing it and it was running away.
If you want to get your dog back, you walk in the other direction so that it happily follows you. She needed to walk away from money towards happiness and trust that the comfortable finances would follow. The same thing could be true of happiness. If one chases it, it may be elusive. But if one just walks the path, it will walk right by their side.
