But, is this really true? I have never been a wealthy hippie, so I can’t truly go from specific experience, but I've had times in my life where I had plenty of money and times where I haven't. Yet, in both places, I worried about money--I would worry when it was going to show up and/or when it was going to disappear forever. It doesn’t matter how little or much money I have--I worry about it running out. I may think being a wealthy hippie will allow me to be worry-free, but it's not really true.
Even with my intention, I do get buried underneath the money worries. Coaching has served me well here, time and time again, to bridge the gap between where I am (worrisome, fear-oriented) to where I want to be: experiencing peace and freedom. In the end, the mind thinks worrying is productive, but it really isn't. The key: find the space within you that creates the experience you want to have in the moment and bring it forward.
All of the points above do not mean gaining wealth is a bad thing. It’s more about determining the true reason you seek wealth in the first place. Is it to have security, peace, or freedom? Since money does not automatically provide these, in what ways can you create it now in this moment? Peace and freedom can be found at any moment, whether you are a rich hippie, a poor hippie, or a middle-of-the-road hippie. Peace and freedom are much more important to me than the drive for wealth.
