Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 11 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Morgana Rae whose book Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation launches on Amazon on Wednesday January 23, 2013.
Morgana Rae is an internationally acclaimed life coach, speaker and author of Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation. Widely regarded to be the world’s top Relationship with Money Coach, she has been featured on ABC-TV, PBS, NPR, FOX News Radio, United Press International and The Wall Street Journal online, and is frequently a featured expert on programs with Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, John Gray, John Assaraf and T Harv Eker. Named one of 2012’s Top Women in E-commerce by WE Magazine, Morgana has guided thousands of entrepreneurs, artists, healers and humanitarians to thrive in their purpose, attract more than they chase, and make things happen with ease, flow and synchronicity.
In her book, Financial Alchemy, Morgana walks you through her time-tested program to turn your personal Money Monster of scarcity into a Money Honey of abundance. The book is a self-guided system to help you uncover your limiting blocks to abundance, and transform your relationship with money using a SUCCESS FORMULA that keeps you on track and positively “magnetic”.
Yesterday, Morgana visited Callie Carling at http://createavity.com/2013/01/17/financial-alchemy-launch/, where they talked about the bare-bones-basics behind Financial Alchemy, setting fees and money-relationship “battles”.
Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Morgana when I got to ask her some questions on spiritual women prospering financially, creating a new relationship with money and living a charmed life. I hope you enjoy it.
Paula Tarrant: What is it about money that seems to constantly trip up smart, savvy, spiritual women and keep them from really prospering financially?
Morgana Rae: Well, there are a lot of things. It’s not an accident. That’s the biggest piece that I want you to get is that. It’s not an accident when women and smart savvy spiritual people are not making the money they should be making, need to be making, deserve to be making. What’s going on is there’s an unconscious conflict and some of it’s really easy to identify. We’ve all heard the biblical injunction that money is the root of all evil. If you’re reading this, I would say the odds are pretty high that you don’t want to be evil.
And then we see all of these bad guys, out in the news, who are stealing the lifetime savings of pension owners and lifetime workers. We’ve got the Bernie Madoffs. We’ve got the executives of Hostess, who gave themselves multimillion dollar bonuses while cutting worker benefits and declaring bankruptcy. And in the movies—who are the villains? The rich folk! Think of “It’s A Wonderful Life.” We learn this from an early age, and then we just keep seeing this association of the people with money being bad guys. We don’t want to be the bad guys.
Then there are much more subtle things going on. For instance every time you said, “I can’t afford it,” you made money the bad guy, the scapegoat for what you couldn’t have or do or be. Imagine how many times you’ve had that thought over a life time, how many times money got in the way of your dreams.
Smart, savvy, spiritual women want to do good in the world. We want to be good people. We want to be loved. Then we see and feel money getting in the way of love. We’re not fools… so we choose love, and then we have no money!
And that doesn’t work, obviously. We know this, consciously, but our conscious mind is not where we get our results. Our unconscious mind is where we get our results. That’s why we work so hard and we can’t understand why things aren’t working.
So, the first step is to lift up the hood and look into the engine of your mind. You’re looking for any negative things that you’ve ever seen or heard or experienced about money–in your lifetime–because we’ve already established that money is the number one excuse for everything we can’t have, do or be.
Yes, money’s a bad guy in our world. I know it’s more than that: it’s not all bad. It’s neutral. It’s energy; it’s an exchange of value. Blah blah blah. All of this is true. But if you want to CHANGE YOUR RESULTS, I invite you to learn the art of Alchemy. Alchemy is the transmutation of lead into gold. And the first step is digging up the lead, getting really honest about what isn’t working, and creating the tension and the momentum necessary to create a change.
Paula Tarrant: How would you explain the basics of Financial Alchemy? How can Financial Alchemy help us create a new relationship with money?
Morgana Rae: Well, I already started to jump the gun there when I was talking about Alchemy being the transmutation of lead into gold. And in my work, it’s the transmutation of leaden human experience into spiritual gold (which also, fortunately, translates into material gold, too).
First we uncover and get rid of very, very good reasons repelling and protecting yourself from money. How do you know that you’re repelling money? If you’re not making the money you should be making–that’s a really good indicator. Or, you make a lot of money, and you lose it. Maybe you spend it, or people steal from you, or cheat you. You’re not feeling secure. You’ve got a Money Monster.
It’s absolutely necessary to make money a person, because that’s the only relationship we, as people, understand. Many great teachers talk about relationship with money, but they’re talking about money as an abstract concept. Money as an idea. As energy. As a tool. As an exchange of value. That’s not a real relationship. Not like a relationship with a person who has feelings and thoughts of his own.
And when we personify the problem as your “Money Monster,” change becomes much easier. Because we all know how to end a relationship with a person. We can use that experience to end the Money Monster relationship that doesn’t serve us.
We also want to create an extreme contrast. That’s what produces the most dramatic real world results—Caroline manifesting $86,000 over night. That kind of thing. We create an all-bad Money Monster, the dream killer, and replace it with its opposite. The “Money Honey.”
It’s a 6 step process to get there, and I devote the first section of my book to this process.
Paula Tarrant: You talk about “living a charmed life”. How would you define a charmed life, and how does one go about creating it?
Morgana Rae: My definition of a charmed life is living in alignment with what’s going on. Learning how to get in partnership with the universe. It feels like things fall in your lap. And a great trick for getting that to happen is getting rid of the stuff that gets in the way.
Get rid of the inner obstacles. Get rid of the overwhelming to-do list. Get rid of the stuff that sucks your energy and diminishes your happiness.
And the results come very quickly. Like when Laura Koehne made $10,000 within 48-hours of getting rid of her Money Monster. It’s so much easier to move forward when your subconscious isn’t hitting the brakes!
I’ve found conversations with my (personified) Money Honey have been my best strategy for charmed living. By definition your Money Honey loves you and speaks to you for your highest good. There’s really good guidance waiting for you, there.
And yes the money results great, but that’s only touching the surface. The REAL change is so much bigger and deeper. It’s a feeling of belonging, a love of life, a feeling of worth, a feeling of safety and trust, a feeling of readiness for anything.
