Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #4

Limiting belief # 4: It is more spiritual to be poor.

This is another belief given to us by religious traditions. Many of the world’s faith traditions contain stories of how the poor were blessed because they displayed humility in the face of trials or they sacrificed something for others. Poor people are seen as righteous and the rich are considered to be weak and selfish. Possibly the most well known reference to this comes from the Christian tradition when Jesus proclaimed that “blessed be ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of heaven”.

Obviously taken in isolation this approach gives the impression that it is more virtuous to be poor, however as with anything the key is balance. Clearly the great spiritual leaders were supported by rich benefactors as well as poor ones, because they required money to live in their community and pursue their spiritual mission. This suggests that rich people can also be deeply spiritual too.

Looked at another way, poverty or lack can be seen as a result of a blockage in our creative energy. Given that we already possess the capacity to accessing a limitless supply of our own internal resources in order to solve our problems, when we feel stuck or blocked it is because we are stuck in a less than resourceful state rather than because we don’t possess the capacity to manifest in our lives what we desire. Hence poverty doesn’t make us more spiritual; rather it can cause us to be less connected to our natural flow.

What are your views about rich people? Do you feel it is better to be loved and poor than rich and lonely? Please share your thoughts I look forward to reading them.
