Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 14 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 Gill Potter at http://yoursacredpurposeblog.com/2013/01/virtual-interview-with-morgana-rae/, where they talked about living a charmed life without compromise, releasing limiting beliefs and inner blocks.
Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Morgana when I got to ask her some questions On How Financial Alchemy Will Help You Move From Lack Into Abundance.
Suzie Cheel: When we wake up feeling full of gratitude and in abundance we bring magic into our lives. What steps can we take to kindle and heighten those feelings of gratitude and abundance when we are feeling fearful?
Morgana Rae: Well, that is the heart of Alchemy! I define Alchemy as the transmutation of leaden human experience into spiritual gold. This actually is what I cover in the first part of my book that’s coming out on January 23. Instead of pretending that the fears aren’t there, GO FOR THEM! Really uncover the fears. Really address them. Bring them to light. Don’t hide from them. Pretending that they’re not there is sort of like putting a Band-Aid on a wound that’s full of poison: it will just turn inward and poison you. What we want to do is remove the poison.
So first, yeah, you’ve got fears. I’m going to give you some tips right now on how to use those fears and get rid of them. We want to turn those fears into your “Money Monster.” This is the monster that wants to prevent us from everything that we want to have or do or be.
You see, we think we want money. But really, if you take a look at the world, money is the big EXCUSE. Money is the bogyman. Money is the thing that gets in the way of our dreams. There’s so much pain around the abuse of money, or the lack of money, that that are a part of us needs to protect ourselves from money. So at the same time that we’re consciously pursuing it—working hard, doing everything we think we’re supposed to do to make a living–unconsciously we’re also pushing it away! And the unconscious always wins.
So I say personify all of it into a Money Monster person, and get rid of the monster… so that you can have a new relationship with money, what I call your Money Honey, a relationship worth having.
Then let’s say one day in the future you’ll wake up and something happens that triggers you. You’re feeling anxious, or you’re just feeling human. But now you’ve got this new juicy, wonderful, loving new relationship with money in your life: your Money Honey! TALK to your money and say, “I’m feeling anxious. What do you want me to do so I can feel less anxious?”
Do what your money tells you to do, and your life will never be the same!
Suzie Cheel: Money or the lack of money stops so many people from moving forward and doing what is their heart’s desire. How can Financial Alchemy guide people to move from lack and debt into abundance?
Morgana Rae: Well, there are so many schools out there right now that are telling you to only think positive things, and that’s great if it works for you! But what I have found is that life happens, and human beings have feelings, and we aren’t always enlightened. At least I’m not. So I had to come up with something different, something that would work for me…
In the Alchemy process, the more anxiety and upset you have, the more polarity we can create. We WANT this. Alchemy goes back tens of thousands of years, and the first step is a Latin word “Negridio.” It means the blackening. That’s what we do. You don’t get punished for having bad feelings; the Law of Attraction police are not going to come down and arrest you. Instead, the more you feel in this process the better it works! I don’t want it to be a cute idea. Cute ideas don’t do anything. When you have a real experience, and your monster is horrible and terrifying and then you get rid of it, you can have the opposite: your Money Honey is even bigger and more beautiful.
For instance here’s a real life results. Caroline Konnoth made $86,000 the day after she got rid of her Money. The cash was like a side benefit. The change had already happened. Her new Money Honey was so real to her, and she felt so honored in the relationship, BEFORE the dollars showed up. She told me what her Money Honey looked like, what he sounded like, what he felt like, what he smelled like. He was a REAL person to her, even though he was imaginary, and she felt alive and beautiful and loved. And now she’s learning how to work less hard, have better relationships, and attract more and more abundance by making her “Money Honey” happy!
Suzie Cheel: How can we use our so called failures for research and development so we can move towards our own financial success? You can watch and listen to the video Mogana made as well as read the answer below:
Morgana Rae: “I love that! This is what I say to my clients is all the time. All of those years of failing and struggling in some area of life is Research and Development. Whatever your big challenge has been, whether it’s relationship or health or money or all of them, your failure makes you an expert in that area of the human experience, so that when you come out of it you know something really valuable that can help other people.
I would not have what I teach today if I had not been such a spectacular financial failure. I was doing everybody’s programs. It didn’t whether it was taking classes in business building and marketing, or creating a website or getting a millionaire mind-set, doing a vision board, and meditating with a green candle and having a great attitude… so what! I was still making $100 a month, even though I had a coach certification, I had testimonials, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!
The gift of all of those years in such a hard and dark and horrible place (that I really want to spare other people) is that I got to understand a certain problem so well–from direct experience–that I’ve become world famous now as the solution to that problem: that problem of repelling money, protecting ourselves from money, having a bad relationship with money, money being the enemy instead of the partner, financial limitation, and all of the issues of worthiness and love and safety, and all of the underlying issues behind it. I only know this stuff so well because I lived it for a long time before I found my solution.
After I had changed my own relationship with money I was getting instant results (four new clients paying me twice what I had ever charged before, the very next day), and it just kept spiralling and spiralling and spiralling.
Since then I’ve coached thousands of people. The failures that I had, that research and development, taught me how to know and respect their pain, not to judge them. Instead I can say, “I get it. That’s horrible. I really, really know what you’re talking about, and let’s try this!”
The gift of pain is that it teaches us humility and empathy and respect for the pain of others. There can be an arrogance with happiness. We can’t comprehend (or we blame) people who are in a bad spot. But when you’ve been in that bad spot yourself, you look at other people with different eyes, and a different caring, and a different respect, and a different ability to help.
