Showings are ongoing on my house. And we’re taking offers on August 18.
Of course, there’s a number that I’d like to get. And it’s above the list price.
People are asking me “How are you visualizing to get your number?”
I’m good with money and people want to know – what’s your secret?
But my secret is that I’m not visualizing my number.
When it comes to your Creative Dreams, those dreams that live in your heart and are rooted in purpose and spirit – I say visualize visualize visualize.
Because in that case visualization is all about connecting with your own heart and purpose and spirit and creating channels for all of that to express itself out in the world.
This situation is different.
The Creative Dream here is the move itself. That these amazing architects have designed something that takes all of the qualities that are important to me, and put them together into one dreamy loft space. That is a Creative Dream Come True.
And so I’m filling up on the qualities that feel important to me about all of this:
And the combination of these qualities feels nothing like the quality of trying to manipulate the universe into giving me the price I want for my house.
So, if I were visualizing the price I want, I’d be putting myself out of the flow of what I really want.
It would change my relationship with money.
It would bring in the qualities of selfishness.
Because I can’t honestly say that my house is genuinely worth what I want for it.
It’s an older house. I’ve done quite a lot of work to it but it needs more still.
But more importantly: trying to force the issue to get what I want is only an expression of fear and lack.
It’s like saying “Hey Universe! I don’t think I can get this money any other way! Please, you have to help me!”
It’s about trying to take advantage of the situation.
And that is definitely not the kind of energy I put into my relationship with money.
Just the thought of that makes me want to cry.
I’ve worked really hard to create a healthy relationship with money that is based on the values that are most important to me.
Money is so much less about numbers, and so much more about relationship.
As long as I focus on bringing those qualities into all of my financial dealings – yes I have the numbers.
But as soon as I focus on the numbers – I lose the qualities.
And then the numbers start to shrink.
I could go on and on about money.
Check out the Creative With Money Playdate for more on that.
This is so important.
You deal with money every day. It’s a part of everything.
When you get conscious and creative in your relationship with money – everything changes.
