Fear of Money is the Root of all Evil

I know the idea of being afraid of money sounds ludicrous from a logical perspective, but I can’t help but wonder how many people have a fear of money, lurking just under the surface.

That was me a few years ago. Money, although not really a bad word, (at least not after I matured enough to understand the truth about money) actually triggered me a bit. When I was younger it used to trigger me a lot!  The word itself made me just uncomfortable enough that I couldn’t say it without an inner cringe. Instead I used words like, “abundance” or “prosperity” to make me feel more comfortable around the subject of money.

Although I didn’t see money as a monster, in a way, that’s exactly what it was.

In pondering on money a few days ago, these are the insights that came through. Click HERE for more…

Until next time be Fearless, Fabulous & Free!

1987 Harmonic Convergence

In August of 1987 a friend of mine invited me to attend church with her. At that point in my life I wanted nothing to do with church of any kind. I had been battling suicide for over five years which resulted from my extremely patriarchal, fundamentalist upbringing, and I knew I couldn’t find reprieve from my suffering in the same beliefs that created it. I was only 21 yet very tapped into my intuition.

Something about this girl and her family was different. They didn’t come across as the faux friend I felt bombarded with from others who wanted to assimilate (fellowship) me into their belief system. I had  left Montana as a teenager and moved to Salt Lake City to find myself. Everyone I met seemed to want to convert me to “real” Mormonism. But not this family. They seemed to me to be genuine and real, with no strings attached.

My friend told me about the female minister at her church and that she would be teaching a lesson on prosperity the following Sunday. That I needed to see – a woman leading the show and talking positively about money? Both were beyond my imagination.

Out of curiosity I took my friend up on her invitation. That one random Sunday forever changed my life. It took me in a direction I never imagined possible. It took me on a journey of self-discovery, self-improvement and eventually, self-realization. All of that new age enlightenment taught me how to heal my life and see a much bigger picture of myself and the universe. Not through the church itself so much, but through the books in the bookstore. Wayne Dyer and his friends became my teachers. And yes, the Church of Religious Science – now the Centers for Spiritual Living – literally saved my life.

There have been other similar organizations that I’ve attended over the years, such as Unity, Unitarian and various Science of Mind based spiritual centers. They feed my soul rather than attempt to control it. All of them have bookstores that stimulate my emotional and spiritual analysis and elevate my self-awareness.

August of 1987 was a big year, not just for me but for the planet as a whole. It was the time of Harmonic Convergence when a new level of enlightened energy began coming to our planet. Of course I didn’t know it at the time but now I see the synchronicity. I am so glad I said yes to my friend and in so doing, said yes to life and the direction of my life purpose. All those years ago I could have never imagined where I am today.

Another Harmonic Convergence begins tomorrow. I’m curious to see where it takes us…

Here’s The Scoop!

It’s time for a change. I have been managing this blog and sharing my insights for over five years and it is time for an upgrade.

Yes, I did re-brand this website last year so that it matched the branding of my official website but it’s still not enough. Several days ago I had a nice long chat with my brand master Chesley Marie. To me she is the Goddess of branding and website design and she did wonders with my official website. “Honey”, she said to me, “You are trying to run two different brands and you need to decide what your focus is. Is it polygamy or is it self-worth?” Of course, for me, they blend together because polygamy is a self-worth, women’s worth, human rights issue.  That being said, it is time for me to choose where to focus my time, creative energy and personal resources.

Running two brands and managing two blogs, while playing all of the roles that come with being a mom and wife, and still making time to be self-honoring has me a little frazzled. Not having clear, concise focus will do that! Nothing is really getting done to its highest and greatest potential and in the way I envision being of service to you.

Running too many directions consumes so much of my time and creativity that I have been unable to complete the books that all of you have been asking for.

Chelsey was right! It is time for me to put my focus, time, creativity, energy and resources into one brand. Over the next month I will be planning my exit strategy away from the gossip of polygamy and focus on what I really love to write and teach. Polygamy is easy because it is so prevalent in the media and I see it from a unique perspective so I won’t be abandoning it completely, but it isn’t my first love.

My real love is inspiring my readers to live a more loving and fulfilling life that is free from the guilt and constraints of religious dogma and the many misconceptions regarding spirituality.  

Taking my message up a level has been an internal dialogue I’ve been having with myself over the past few years as I wonder if the world is ready for my message. It is out there on the leading edge of thought. From what I see in the world around me the answer is yes. As more and more people choose to leave religion behind and go in search of their own truth, I am here to support them in their journey. My purpose is to help others cross the bridge into moving through life in complete confidence of who they were truly born to be. For me, spirituality is a personal experience and the relationship that one has with oneself rather than a one-size-fits-all belief system. There is no one right way and no middle-man necessary.

Yes, I would have been burned alive as a heretic for saying such things only a few centuries ago, and I suspect that I probably was.

In short, over the next few months I will be dismantling this blog and blending it with my official blog at Victoria Reynolds Blog Of course I will continue to be outspoken about women’s rights, human equality, religious abuse, masculine feminine balance, fear-based beliefs, conscious choice, personal relationships, sexuality, self-love, prosperity, and whatever else strikes me in a moment of intuition and inspiration. It will probably always be a little controversial and that’s okay. Controversy is good because it opens the mind to new ideas, concepts, understanding, personal growth and eventually, our collective evolution. As always, everything I write comes from the heart.

I will also be announcing any upcoming books, speaking engagements, film appearances, product releases and other great ways to stay connected and get the inside scoop.
