The Wheel of Misfortune: Resentment
Resentment. Resentment is really just this negative energy that we put around us, trying to blame the other person for what's happening to us. And this could happen in a business with your clients, even at a micro-level, because you're putting out a price that is too low to really sustain you, and you're resentful about that. And that resentment comes through to that client. And this is how you're pushing money away from you, because, whether you think it or not, they can feel that energy coming from you, because you're not really paying what I think I'm worth. I'm just giving this to you, but it's really cheap. When we're resentful of what we have, we repel the thing that we want. Because we're so much negative energy wrapped up in being resentful, that instead of focusing on the thing that we want and the money that we want to make and creating it, our energy gets stuck in being resentful. You were treated unfairly. A lot of people are treated unfairly. But resentment is the process ...
of blaming them and not taking our part of responsibility, which is what we'll talk about this afternoon. So we hold onto grudges, and we think people are always taking from us, and, you know, I'm putting myself out there but people just aren't paying me enough. And that resentment further repels clients from you. I'm resentful in my job because they made changes on me, and I don't like it. Do you think you're gonna get promoted? Someone else is in charge of your money. Resentment because someone else holds the purse strings. I've given control of my money to someone else and now I'm resentful that I can't do what I want with my money, because I have to get it approved through them. And money means loss. A lot of times, we do have this connection between money and love, so if I make more money, I'm gonna lose love. If I make money, I'm gonna lose my friends. If I make money, my family's not gonna want to be around me. So we have this connection between money and loss, and money, if I make more money, I'm just gonna get more taxes. So why would I want to make more money? It's just more taxes, more bills. Money means pain and secrets. So sometimes this is deep-seated in a family, where you were raised in an environment that money literally means secrets. One parent bought something and you were in the middle and told not to tell the other parent. Everything around money to you is a lie, right? Money means fighting, it means upsetness. Everything I know around money is negative, so I don't want money. I want money but I don't want money. I can't keep it near me, because I'm really resentful of what the connotation of money has for me.
