Module 2 - Strengthen Your Relationship With Money
Lesson 1: Write a Letter to Money
➙ Dear Money - Talk to money as if it was a person. How do you feel about it? Tell money what you think of it.
➙ Dear xxxx - Now you become money. Have money write a letter to you. Let it express how it feels and experiences you.
➙ Share - If you are comfortable sharing your letters, post them in the Facebook group.
I feel like I have to work so hard for you and you only dribble into my life. Sometimes when I pray or meditate because I want to go somewhere and have something you will come in and just allow me to do that.
I am grateful for that. But I can’t depend on you. I would like there to be more flow, more ease. You make my stomach tighten every time I think of you. I judge you. I think you are only there for other people and not me. Kind of like I am not a good enough person for you to show up fully. I need to be a better person.
Sometimes it feels like you are trapped somewhere and if I just knew how to open the door for you to get out, it would be all better. Now that I think about it more, I have the key and I won’t let you in. Maybe it is because if I let you in I would have to change. I would have to work harder and I don’t have enough energy to do that right now. I know that sounds crazy because if you arrived maybe I wouldn’t have to work more.
You make me angry sometimes. I just don’t understand you and I can’t stay present for you. You are too big of an energy and you blow my circuits at times. I just want to be able to handle you. I want to be a better person with you. I just don’t know how.
I sometimes feel like you ignore me and feel like I am a burden in your life. When I come to you and offer support you spend me and give me away.
I know that you don’t really understand me and I have a lot of complicated pieces around me. But I want to teach you about me I want for us to get to know each other. It feels like we speak different languages and you don’t understand what I am trying to say to you but you pretend that you do.
I don’t think we can ever have a closer relationship unless you start to learn my language. I don’t really have the capacity right now to understand your language but I want to. You have to teach me. When you get overwhelmed, you can’t wait to use me. I somehow make you feel better when you give me away or spend me on something.
It feels really disrespectful and I feel used. I also see that you have no real place to keep me that is smart. You did once put me into gold and silver and locked me into a safety deposit box. That was kind of interesting. But I didn’t really increase in value. I was just there until you decided to turn me into a car.
Can we just sit down together and just get to know each other?

Language is important and each word resonates differently with different people.
I highly recommend this process.
