What are we telling the identity of money in our daily lives? Even if you think you’ve never spoken to money, it’s listening to you.

A few years ago, I was in deep trouble with money. Bankrupt, losing people’s trust, nearly losing my job, I was desperately trying to cross a thread-thin rope with haphazard methods. At that time, I believed without doubt that all the difficulties that befell me were due to money. I felt anger and despair because I couldn’t get the money I believed would bring back trust and peace.

One day, during a Ho’oponopono meditation, money spoke to me.

“You don’t love me. You hate me. Every time you see me, you feel imperfect, angry, and sad. This is not love.”

This experience was a major shift for me. I had been constantly looking at money, but it only distanced me from my inner self. I began to clean again. Every time the desire for money surfaced, cleaning became the restoration of my relationship with money.

From there, I never gave up on cleaning, regardless of what happened. And now. Although I’m not extremely wealthy, I’m happier, more balanced, and feel richer in relationships and work than ever before.

Also, my family’s financial situation has greatly improved. This might sound strange, but it’s something new. My family always had problems, but now I feel a connection between their financial success and the cleaning I’ve been doing.

No matter how dire the situation, anyone can continue cleaning. And it will certainly bring change. This is something I’ve experienced firsthand.
