When it comes to money, we all want to learn to make better choices and do it more often. Patricia Aburdene, tells us that “money is the power of human consciousness in motion.”  She also goes on to say, as we choose the path of conscious money, we know decisively that finance, while still important, takes second place to the consciousness that creates it and the values that guide it. She points out that as the old economic system continues to crumble we all yearn for new global systems that better match the current state of human evolution and better deliver the blessings of abundance. Unfortunately many of our emotions and thoughts around money are neither conscious nor helpful. Aburdene guides us in cultivating positive money emotions in order to have greater self-mastery and to dissolve the old, unconscious patterns that sabotage our best efforts. She says, “Conscious money is all about having greater awareness around each financial transaction that you make. With every financial transaction you make, you have the opportunity to vote with your values or to not vote with your values. Just observe what that’s like; that’s the first step” She shares the trademarks of“conscious capitalism” and how to spend wisely for a better planet. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
