Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 15 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Morgana Rae whose book Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation launches on Amazon Wednesday January 23, 2013. Morgana and I became friends when we met at a marketing conference a few years ago. We’ve stayed in touch and recently were able to catch up in person when Morgana was visiting here in Las Vegas.
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, Morganawalks 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 Suzie Cheel at http://www.abundancehighway.com/morgana-rae/, where they talked about fear into abundance, debt to abundance and using failures for research and development.
Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Morgana when I got to ask her some questions on putting magic into action, relationship between Self-Worth & Net-Worth and our relationship with money. I hope you enjoy it.
Stephanie Rainbow Bell: I’m a big believer in putting magic into action in daily life, and I know you are too! Would you please give us a couple of practical examples of how to do that?
Morgana Rae: Well, making things happen magically is a combination of inner intention and external action. If you have a conflict on some kind of subconscious level, it will get in the way of what you want to create. So the first step is to get rid of the hidden reason: there is always some sort of payoff. You want to find it.
This can take some creativity. We don’t think we want illness, we don’t think we want poverty… OBVIOUSLY! We don’t want those things. And yet… over time we develop creating ways of compensating and coping with adversity. We build benefits to the status quo. I don’t want anyone giving up benefits. We need to satisfy them in a different, better way. Then your unconscious self is in alignment with your external goal.
Another tip that I would add to it is whatever you want always make sure that you’re coming from a place of love.
For example: I had a neighbor, years ago who was really, really difficult. So, set a strong wish that she would find another place to live where she would be happier. And I wished her that with so much love and sincerity–that she find another place where she’d be much happier. The next day she started moving to a new apartment. So I thought that was a bit magical!
Stephanie Rainbow Bell: In my book, Beautiful At Every Size: The Every Women’s Guide to Nurturing Confidence and Self-Esteem, About Your Body, I focused on the relationship of self-worth and your physical appearance. I know you are very passionate about the relationship between Self Worth and Net-Worth. Tell us more about that as it relates to Financial Alchemy.
Morgana Rae: Stephanie focused on the relationship of self-worth and your physical appearance. Stephanie knows that I’m very passionate about the relationship between self-worth and net worth.
Even though I’ve become pretty well known around the world as the “Money Honey Lady”, my work really isn’t about money. I’m not a financial adviser. But I do understand what money represents: worth, love, and safety.
Let’s focus on wealth for a second. I personally don’t believe that your net worth is your true worth! And yet we are told that all the time– that you are worth this, or your contribution is worth this. Maybe it’s big and maybe it’s little, and that can be very, very painful! So it’s natural to SUBCONSCIOUSLY want to protect ourselves from the bully that tells us we’re not good enough… even if that bully is money.
Think of being judged when you’re a kid, and told that you don’t measure up. Or suddenly we have a lot of money and people treat us differently. We know we’re the same person. In many instances people make vast amounts of wealth, and they get rid of it as quickly as possible because they want to be loved for themselves again.
Studies have shown that most big lottery winners are bankrupt or dead within three years. There’s a whole new school of psychology about the negative effects of instant wealth.
The solution is to create a totally new kind of relationship with money—as if money is a person—that is so deeply rooted in love, trust, and respect that ALL relationships and thoughts and behaviors that don’t uplift your value fall away. You have this relationship with money where you feel loved and cherished and safe, and together you two can partner and speak to each other and grow together. Then the cash doesn’t really matter so much because you always know how you can make it.
And that is worth so much more than any specific dollar amount. So I would say that self-worth is worth infinitely more than net worth, because net worth can go up and down but self-worth is the source of everything!
Stephanie Rainbow Bell: I love the concept of putting magic into our relationship with money! Can you elaborate a bit on that please in terms of Financial Alchemy?
Morgana Rae: Magic to me is the mystery. It’s when the unlikely happens. It’s when somebody has been working and working and working and working… and not getting a result for a very long time. And then you make one small adjustment and the world changes over night.
Magic is when Lynn Swanson, who when she did what her new (personified) Money Honey told her to do, made over ten thousand dollars in two minutes. Or when Tanja Jaeger received the funds to pay off all of her debts within three hours of doing the Financial Alchemy® process. That’s magic!
I see money as a spiritual teacher… as that aspect of Existence, the Universe, or God (choose the label that works for you) that we struggle with. That needs our love and healing the most. And when we can embrace and adore that part of life that used to be the enemy… a lot of pent up energy can be released. Unlikely miracles tend to happen.
And really, it’s still a mystery to me. I know how to make stuff happen. I know how to teach people to make stuff happen. And then I go back to what the author Arthur C. Clarke wrote, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” So let’s just call this some advanced technology that I put into a book, so that you can do it yourself.
