I learned something very important yesterday from my friend Jamie Snyder of the MEK Group about the velocity of money.
The most important variable that mediates the effects of changes in the money supply is the velocity of money. Imagine that you purchase a hamburger. The waiter then takes the money that you spent and uses it to pay for his dry cleaning. The dry cleaner then takes that money and pays to have his car washed. This process continues until the bill is eventually taken out of circulation. In many cases, bills are not removed from circulation until many decades of service. In the end, a single bill will have facilitated many times its face value in purchases.
Velocity of money is defined simply as the rate at which money changes hands. If velocity is high, money is changing hands quickly, and a relatively small money supply can fund a relatively large amount of purchases. On the other hand, if velocity is low, then money is changing hands slowly, and it takes a much larger money supply to fund the same number of purchases. SparkNotes
What I am worried about is that there are a defined number of pieces of the money pie and I don’t have the sized piece I want and need. Money is moving at a higher velocity out of my bank account than it is going in! I’m worried about money; the cost of health care, the cost of repairs to my home and car, the cost of living beyond my years of work, the cost of caring for my children, the cost of political decisions. How can I possibly release that fear of not having what I need? The fear surrounding money is the real issue!
So what is today’s challenge? Take an entire day and not worry! Are you crazy, if I don’t worry about it, everything will fall apart. The reality, worry does not add anything to your life or the lives of others. Caution, advance planning, foresight, yes……..worry, no!
If I understand the velocity of money concept correctly, a smaller amount of money circulating more quickly can fund a larger amount of transactions. Is this a new take on the fishes and loaves story of the Bible?
If money is energy, then the rapid flow of a small portion high-vibrational energy will have a greater impact on the world than a huge amount of low-vibrational energy. What would you categorize as a high-vibrational transaction. A thoughtfully prepared meal of fresh healthy foods eaten in a pleasant atmosphere is going to infuse your body with higher vibrational energy than the fast food meal eaten in your car. Donating money, goods or services is going to be a higher-vibrational exchange than giving your time and talent to a job that is not rewarding.
Choose high-vibrational energy transactions today. See how you feel!
On my desk, written on a 5×8 index card is this prayer written by Marianne Williamson
I surrender to you all my thoughts about money.
I surrender to you all my debts.
I surrender to you all my wealth.
Open my mind to receive abundantly.
Channel your abundance through me in a way that serves the world.
