I read a fascinating book recently on the topic of money. Well, really it was about a lot more than just money.

More of a primer of how to live your life in the flow, creating the reality that you truly desire rather than being limited by restrictive thoughts, beliefs, fears and worry. It’s one of the first books I’ve read in a long time that I think is a game changer.

One of the most interesting concepts was the idea of a vibrational bank account – a system that is available to all of us and which, most importantly, evaluates everyone’s contribution not in the form of actual money, but rather debits and credits based on our actions, thoughts and contributions.

This is important for two reasons. One, it takes into account the many contributions that people make everyday that are not necessarily tied to a monetary value. Think of how a mother tirelessly works for her children, caring for their every need. Or, how someone brightens someone else’s day with a smile or comment. In our haste to pay homage to the almighty dollar these contributions, while so essential, are often overlooked.

The second aspect of this is that we are the creators of the size of the account, meaning we control how much “credit” we have to leverage for things we want to create such as radiant health, financial income, a new job, etc. We also control what is debited from the account through less than kind actions such as anger and judgement.

But what really caught my attention about this system was the idea of the ripple effect. You see, for each action we take, positive or negative, it ripples out into the collective, creating impacts that we often don’t even see. It’s often easy to forget that we’re part of a collective as we tend to view life from a separatist perspective. But this is not the case. Each of us are connected in a massive web of energy and light and what one person does impacts another, and so on.

So, back to the idea of a vibrational bank account. What if each and every one of us, rather than focusing on how much money we made, thought about what we are depositing into our vibrational bank account? Would we choose to send a kind thought to the person who is driving badly rather than cursing them for their choice? Would we stop to evaluate if our thoughts are oriented toward love and kindness rather than envy and greed?

Don’t get me wrong, I think everyone should make as much money as possible. After all, that is the 3-dimensional construct we are burdened with at this time. But we can take it so much further recognizing that everything we do, no matter how small, is an exchange. And, what we put out is exactly what we get back.

So, consider schooling your thoughts. When an unruly one comes up with the potential for a negative impact choose instead a different route, one that is beneficial and kind. This is important at every level, no matter if you are a stay-at-home mom or CEO of a Fortune 500 company. What you put into the world matters. And the world you want to experience starts with you.

I’m in. Are you?

P.S. – The book is called Love Money, Money Loves You by Sarah McCrum. Even if you have a great relationship with money this book is a must-read, in my humble opinion.
