The Alchemy of Love and Money: Unveiling the Magic of Balancing Both Worlds

Love and money - can the dreamer have both?

If the path you are walking aligns with a Higher Vision, I am here to remind you that while you may sacrifice time, investments, and relationships, love (true love) is not a sacrifice you are called to make. Love is always present, and yet the heart may feel wounded when the mind seeks solace and certainty in a physical world that perhaps only financial income can provide. We cannot control people and their actions. However, what if the real love that you seek can also be the gateway, a key, to an abundant life path?

As I write this, it is a Saturday morning in Black Mountain, North Carolina. I had considered and probably should be back in my hometown in Florida today. My estranged father is holding hands with death; it is my childhood best friend’s birthday, and in a few days, it is my mother's birthday. Instead, I spent my morning at the town farmer's market for the first time, sent texts of gratitude to friends I have made here over the past two years, who have truly become family to me, and brewed fresh local tea for myself to sit down and write. I have no guilt or shame for my choices. I recognize nothing of my oceanic past in the faces and smells of the mountain town community around me, yet I know I am right where I need to be, and I have fought like hell to get here... so let me enjoy it.

In order for us to reach abundance and sustain it, our "why" always has to be known. I started my company as an entrepreneurial endeavor to build an empowered lifestyle that serves my highest calling and purpose in life AND gifts me time to work from home and care for children, a husband, and a farm. There is a pressure that has built within me, where I want to give up my dreams and settle for less. How can I have the power to fulfill this dream if both are not promised? How can I move forward if I cannot see the light?

Yet I know, still with human doubt and uncertainty, this walk has not been without purpose. It is inevitable that as I create the world I have envisioned, it will collide with another who has chosen a similar path. We are fighting for one another, as equally as we fight for ourselves, and therefore, the people we are called to serve. The road to destiny, to full actualization and self-fulfillment NEVER ends. It is an infinite and expansive journey, always unfolding in miraculous ways and unexpected turns. I have not waited, and am not waiting for the right circumstances. I am living the dream right now - abundant love and abundant money as one path, one fate, and one promise that is not at all linear. I do not ask my past for forgiveness; I thank them for setting me free to find home within myself so that I can now finally express and serve fully, all that I am for them and for you.

I ask that you do not commit to a loveless life, as this is not living. Do not commit to money - a life with or without it, for this is not divine purpose. Create a life that gifts and pours from an infinite well of passion, and you are naturally abundant. Allow love within to guide you to the career and relationship of your dreams. That sacred space, between manifestation and materialization of anything you desire, is for you to remember your first Divine Love and most Infinite Provider.
