Question: I feel like I’m not ready to spend most of my energy and time just earning a living anymore, and I want to devote myself to being an open door for my I AM Presence. However, now I do not see any options for how I could get the means of living by expressing it, and in my country, it is quite difficult to make money. One needs to make a significant effort to earn at least a little money. How realistic is it to manifest an abundant life in the current situation on the planet, when you don’t focus on making money, and can work to raise yourself and all life, without worrying about how to make money?
Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.
Well, you can begin with my saying that you cannot serve two masters, you cannot serve God and mammon. But of course, this saying has many deeper meanings, and it is not just about your attitude to money. But what you can begin to contemplate is the attitude that you have towards money, and the attitude that you grew up with about money. In many countries, you have people who are brought up with this attitude that if you are born into a poor family, then you can only remain poor for the rest of your life. This is, in a sense, serving mammon instead of serving God, because you are letting money, or rather, the lack of money, define you.
The other opposite polarity here is that you spend all of your time and attention on making money, thinking that once you have made enough money, then you can relax, and then you can retire, and then you can be spiritual. There are many people in all nations, but of course, more in the richer nations, who are focusing all of their energy on making as much money as possible and it, of course, takes them away from spiritual focus.
But there are also many people who are poor, and who think they cannot make money, and who feel that it is a struggle to make enough to satisfy the basic needs, and they are also serving mammon. This is another unbalanced attitude towards money.
And you can work on this, uncover the selves and overcome those selves, and then you might find that things will open up for you. You will have a more balanced approach, whereby you can make enough money to take care of your physical needs and still have time and energy and attention left over to focus on the spiritual needs. But this requires your willingness to look at these separate selves that you have created, often in many past lifetimes, but certainly also in this lifetime, as a response to the environment in which you grew up, and the attitude towards money found there.
