Thank You Money

Dear money,

I try so hard to make
you good,

because deep down I still
believe you are bad,

and I don’t want to.

It is precisely the battle
I have with myself…

trying to make myself good,
while deep down still believing
I am bad,

and not wanting to be.

dear money,
blessed being,

born of the body of this earth,
just as I was…

thank you for revealing
my deep wounding.

thank you for showing me
my pain.

thank you for releasing me
from this power,

the power of this
unmet guilt and shame.

love has always been the

whether you stay or
you leave.

love will always be
the medicine,

to help our hearts heal
when they grieve.


I wrote this poem to money last year. Money is simply a reflection of our own inner battles. When we heal and resolve those battles within, a different reflection and relationship to money appears as our new reality.

And speaking of unmet guilt and shame… I’ve got a new episode on the Podcast about this very thing, and how you can begin to heal and shift that toward more love, freedom, joy, and empowerment to move in your own direction.
