All Money Problems Are Thinking Problems

By Lisa Natoli

All money problems are thinking problems. If there is lack in your life, there is a thought or belief that is blocking the flow from the abundance that is available to you at all times.

You are a child of God, with a very rich Father. You have everything because you were given everything when you were created: light, holiness, love, the power of God, the peace of God. Not only were you simply “given” these things, you ARE these things. So you have and you are everything.

If you are in debt or worrying about money, you have forgotten this simple fact of your identity in God and your inheritance. You have forgotten the truth of what you are. It’s like the Prodigal Son story. You have a very rich father and you wandered far away from home, with the belief that you could do it better alone.

As you wandered alone further and further away from your home into darkness, you squandered your inheritance until there was nothing left.

But your home still awaits you. Like the prodigal son, you need simply stop what you are doing, realize your way is not working, and then turn your direction around and go home to where your Father awaits to welcome you with open arms.

My Decision To Deal With My Money Block

In 2012, I made a decision to deal with my money block. I knew conceptually through my work with A Course in Miracles that my external situation and conditions were a reflection of my inner thoughts and beliefs. At that time, I had very little money and credit card debt that I had been ignoring for 10 years.

For most of my life, I have told myself I don’t need money. I also had the belief that you have to work really hard to have money.

Once I was on a spiritual path in my twenties, I really intensified my efforts to push money away from me. I thought that good spiritual people didn’t have money, that whatever money they did have: they gave it away to the poor.

I thought that having money was a sign of all things bad.

These were my private beliefs. I thought of Jesus tipping over the money tables in the temple and I took this as a sign that Jesus’ message was that we shouldn’t be working and that we shouldn’t have money. That we should “give everything away and follow him”. I used bible verses and lines from A Course in Miracles to tell myself that not having money was a good thing. I would say things like, money is an illusion. The world is an illusion. I’m not a body. I am free.

I felt that somehow poverty was a sign of my advanced state of mind.

I laugh now at these kinds of thoughts, having seen how radically transformed my life has become, but I seriously believed these ideas for much of my life.

In the spring of 2012, I said: ENOUGH.

My life is dedicated to God and to the mind-training of A Course in Miracles. I spend almost all my time “testing out” and experimenting with the ideas contained in the book. I often feel like “a scientist in the field” taking an idea and applying it to situations in my life.

The one part I didn’t experiment with was with money. I felt a lot of shame around having money. I thought people would judge me if I had money, that it would be a sign that I was greedy, selfish and worldly.

Meanwhile, I didn’t have money to pay my bills. I didn’t have money to put gas in my car. My website would often be shut off because I didn’t have the $10 to pay the monthly fees to keep my blog up and running (that was back in 2004 when it costs $10 a month to have a website). Someone would then send me some money to pay the fee and turn the blog back on. This was my life for years. I thought: if it’s needed (for me to have gas in my car, to have a website), the money will come.

I had a “let’s wait and see what happens” approach. I let the outside world and external events determine what happened in my life, rather than the other way around.

Seeing New Possibilities

Once you begin to shift your state of being – your mindset – your entire experience begins to change. You become aware that everything in the universe is energy (light) and instead of holding it in (hiding the brilliance that you are “under a bushel”), you put that light on a candlestick and let it shine. Rather than clinging to your old patterns of fear, you allow yourself to see new possibilities for your life.

So in 2012, I made a decision to become intentional, to heal my money thoughts and to get out of debt, to live a life of joy and abundance, free from lack thoughts.

I did a video where I tell the whole story of what I did specifically. It was a 5-week experiment, in which I became a different person. You can watch the video for free by entering your name and email.

We are coming up on 2018 now.

Let this be the year that you change your mind and the world you think you see changes.

Imagine feeling connected, centered and clear. Imagine feeling strong and confident and happy. Think about what it would be like to tap into greater abundance without working harder, without effort, but rather through relaxation and removing your own internal blocks to abundance and joy.

So often we go through life in struggle-mode and when things are not working, we just push harder. We put in more hours. We wrack our brains to find ways to make more money, improve our health, resolves our issues of boredom, stress and anxiety. When you try to fight energy (which is what stress is, going against the natural flow of life), you end up feeling tired. It’s hard work trying to be the ruler of the universe, making things go your way.

    • Hi France, This is the page where the videos are. You will see a photo with a triangle on top of it. That is the play button. Simply click onto that triangle and that is the video. Let us know if this helps.

  1. Lisa this is the second time your words have reached me when I was struggling to find my way. I woke up this morning and my stomach was in knots and I was stressed even though I know my life is blessed. I was so frustrated without myself for not overcoming. This message helped me release that knot and have hope that there is some guidance out there for me.

  2. Wow, when you try to fight energy you end up feeling tired. Where do I do this, but more importantly how do I stop? What transmutes this struggle to flow?
    Thank you for the idea and for the questions

  3. Thanks Lisa. today you have appeared in my letter box and a few minutes ago someone else appeared on the radio talking about fear of success. So far today has been a day of GREAT inspiration and positive support for me to GET IN TO LIGHT!!! Love and bless. BLESS!!!! 🙂

  4. Thank you Lisa for your inspiration. I love it that you said ENOUGH and changed your life. This is where I am at in my life. I have had enough of struggling and just scraping through. I want the abundance I deserve so I am going to change my thinking. I tried to request your video on The Prosperity Process but unfortunately, it has not been sent to my inbox. I have checked my spam and trash boxes and there is nothing in there either. Could you send me your video please as I value so much your advice and wisdom and I want to learn from you. I have £30 in my bank account and I don’t know how I’m going to pay my bills and get through Christmas but I KNOW I will somehow because I realise WHO I am, a child of God. I am NOT separate from God. Despite my bank balance, I am going to change my thoughts, I’m going to go inside and feel the silence of God knowing that I am abundant. Thank you Lisa for your inspiration!

  5. Thank you so much Lisa for sharing this. I loved what you said about taking what the Course says and putting it into practice. I have “tried” tithing for 40 years and feel such fear that if I give, I will experience lack. While reading your blog I was being guided to stop reading and go to the donation page and donate- practice and apply what ACIM says. I had no fear this time. I realized that I am the prodigal son and I saw myself turn around from seeing fear and lack and go back home to my rich Father. He was there waiting with open arms reminding me that He has given me everything. As you said, my external situation and conditions are a reflection of my inner thoughts and beliefs. My core false belief is that I am separate from God. I now see myself snuggled in God’s arms, pure Light and Love, where I have always been. I just forgot.
