Money’s Complex - Rethinking your relationship with Money
Money often costs too much. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Money. Almost all of us have a need to make it (and invariably spend it), save it, borrow it, lend it or gift it. When we’re not putting our time into earning or managing it we are often thinking about it in everyday or agonising ways.
So many of the decisions we make in our lives are effected by it.
Beyond our own lives, everywhere we find indications of the impact of our collective unconscious beliefs and behaviours around money.
Horrendous inequality and the collapse of the environment are just two outflows of the dysfunction.
To come into right relationship, or flow when it comes to money, the first step is healing our complexes and untangling the conditioning that shaped us.
Economics holds to be a rational science dealing with objective measures and yet the foundational principle of infinite growth has more to do with magical, fantastic and irrational thinking than it does with reality.
Any psychological focus tends to be limited to behavioural economics, while psychoanalysis (the dedication to heightening awareness of the unconscious) tends to be ignored or dismissed.
Ironically, Adam Smith’s image of the invisible hand, representing the unseen force that arranges the economically self-serving actions of individuals into collective benefits, is still our dominant motif.
Carl Jung felt that his life’s work proved that the pattern of higher intelligence exists in each of us, asserting that “not only the meaning of our life, but our renewal and the renewal of our institutions depend on our conscious relationship with this inner pattern.”
From the archetypal perspective, money carries a psychic energy just like so many other areas of life.
