“It is essential that we stop worrying about money and stop resenting our bills. Many people treat bills as punishments to be avoided if possible. A bill is an acknowledgment of our ability to pay. The creditor assumes you are affluent enough and gives you the service or the product first. I bless with love each and every bill that comes into my home. I bless with love and stamp a small kiss on each and every check I write. If you pay with resentment, money has a hard time coming back to you. If you pay with love and joy, you open the free-flowing channel of abundance. Treat money as a friend, not as something you wad up and crush into your pocket.” ~ Louise L. Hay from You Can Heal Your Life

Love Your Bills

“It is essential that we stop worrying about money and stop resenting our bills. Many people treat bills as punishments to be avoided if possible. A bill is an acknowledgment of our ability to pay. The creditor assumes you are affluent enough and gives you the service or the product first. I bless with love each and every bill that comes into my home.

How do YOU deal with bills?

Getting a bill really is an *amazing* thing when you think about it. Someone gave you something because, in essence, they believed in and trusted you. Whether it’s a plumber who helps you out then sends you a bill or a credit card company that gives you cash then sends you a bill.

If you have a knee-jerk reaction any time you get a bill, see if you can take a moment and reflect on the incredible cooperation, love and trust involved in every simple exchange. Then, rather than get all pissy about it, bless the bill. Thank the individual who gave you his/her services or the individuals who make up the company that created the products you enjoy. These people deserve our appreciation for spending some of their precious life force on helping us have a more enjoyable life. Yah? THAT’s the way we wanna roll.

If you’re currently in a *really* tight position cash-wise, it’s even MORE important you get in the habit of re-orienting your relationship to money. You might dig my Notes on a couple books that were really transformative for me: Spiritual Economics and The Science of Getting Rich. Plus, The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is cool, too. :)

So, make money your friend and give the next bill you pay a little smooch, will ya?!? :)

And remember: “You’re security is not your job, or your bank account, or your investments, or your spouse or parents. Your security is your ability to connect with the cosmic power that creates all things.”
