What's Sex Got To Do With It?

How's your sex life? If it's less than ideal, you can look in your wallet for the reason why.

No, I'm not referring to the "world's oldest profession." But money and sex are linked in a significant way. The energy they represent emanates from the same chakra. Chakra is a Sanskrit word for the seven "wheels of energy" that spin from the base of our spine to the crown of our head. According to Eastern teachings, the chakras must be open and balanced for all aspects of our lives to flow harmoniously.

The second chakra, located in the pelvic region, is our "survival center," according to renowned medical intuitive, educator and bestselling author, Caroline Myss, Ph.D. Issues related to money, sexuality and power all reside here.

"Disconnection in terms of our sexuality may manifest as aggression, hostility, sexual abuse or sexual dysfunction," says Myss. Disconnection in terms of money can manifest as financial loss, or fear of loss of control—which in our culture often expresses as out-of-control spending.

Myss writes, "Money, like energy, is a neutral substance that takes its direction from the intention of the individual. Expressions such as 'Put your money where your mouth is' refer to the cultural view that what people do with their money says more about their motives than any spoken intention. Energy precedes action, and the quality of our intentions contributes financially to the results." (from "Anatomy of the Spirit")

In discussing money and relationship, Myss explains, "If breaking bread with (someone) is the physical act of communion, Symbolic Communion is the sharing of energetic 'bread' with them. When the second chakra is united with the sacrament of Communion in a positive way, it becomes focused on building healthy, clean, and non-threatening relationships to money, power, and sex. A sense of safety is always present, giving one the feeling that no matter what problems arise in one's physical life, a way out can be found." (from, "Why People Don't Heal, And How They Can")

True wealth, then, means stepping fully into the lifestream. Intriguingly, most of our money metaphors contain water imagery: cash flow, liquid assets, currency (currents), reserves (reservoir). "Affluence" literally means, "to flow abundance"!

And—no surprise—this same juiciness translates into a healthy sexuality. Nature is erotic, vital, pulsing with life. When we live this ardor, we are well, wealthy (one definition of "prosperity" is "well-being".) Repressed, suppressed, depressed, we stop the flow, and often become sick. It's better to be sexual than sick! Express, and there's no need for excess. Being in the flow is being in the know (and in the now.)

Just leave your wallet on the table, and turn off the phone.


You're invited to participate in a playshop to redefine money and its role in your life. Please see my 2/13/05 post, "Play Dough: Reshaping Your Relationship With Money!" The class takes place Saturday, March 19th, in Sebastopol, CA, and includes a yummy (healthy) lunch, snacks and beverage, so sign up NOW!

How to Become A Wealth Wizard

You could purchase a Harry Potter wand, but there's a Muggle way to manifest money magic. These ideas derive from Napolean Hill's blockbuster, "Think And Grow Rich," written nearly 70 years ago and timeless in its truth and power. They're the same principles of spiritual psychology that ancient mystics and modern-day teachers of conscious creation share:

1) Determine the specific amount of money you want, and hold this figure in your mind. Not simply, "I want to be wealthy," but, "I want $50,000 -- or $500,000 -- or $5,000,000."
2) Figure out what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. This is the law of Energy Exchange in action.
3) Establish a definite date by when you intend to possess the money.
4) Create a plan for acquiring the money you seek. Begin at once to put this plan into action -- whether you're "ready" or not.
5) Summarize the above steps in writing. Create a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its arrival, state what you intend to exchange for the money, and describe the specific plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
6) Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once when you wake up, and again before bed. As you read, see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.

Followed faithfully, these steps to manifesting money will also help you outwit Hill's trio of unholy ghosts: indecision, doubt and fear.

Remember the wise words sung by Dr. Frank N. Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show: "Don't dream it, BE it!" We must dream it, first, then muster the desire, faith, imagination and persistence to magnetize our vision into reality.

Abundance takes numerous forms. What does your prosperity picture look like?

Of Night Sweats, Strong Dreams, and World Wisdom

If, like me, you've been soaking your nightclothes while tossing and turning with disturbing dreams this past week--or felt moody and out of sorts in the morning--you're not alone. Channel Norma Gentile reports this is happening to many of us as we dream our new reality into being.

And here I thought it was "just" perimenopause.

Norma writes, "Our dream-state has been unusually active this past week. Night sweats are a part of the physical body adjusting to new energies coming from the Earth. Our bodies act as channels, quite literally, for Earth and Heaven to talk with each other. This past week there has been a shift in the Earth. The information about that shift passed through our bodies as energy. Our bodies translated that energy during dream-state and passed it onto the higher dimensions, or Heaven."

So hang in there, Keepers of the Flame. There are many ways to travel into the Light. If you'd like to receive my February e-newsletter, with the theme, "Traveling Light," you can e-mail me: Please put "Send Feb. What Shines" in the Subject line. Or subscribe here: What Shines. Yes, it's FREE!
