Poverty Consciousness
Store front in Nelson, British Columbia
CARD URL: http://www.zaporacle.com/card/poverty-consciousness/
We live in a money matrix where so much of life is affected by buying and selling and the ebbing and flowing of money. Most people on the planet wish to have more money and feel money stress. Don't let money stress define your existence. There are ways to use money without money dominating your life.

Our money attitudes and habits are often as irrational, self-sabotaging, and established almost as early as food attitudes and habits. Working on money issues is often a catalyst for general maturation.

As with eating or sex, money is a complex process of energetic transactions. Often our patterns with one type of energetic transaction will parallel our patterns with others. For example, someone who throws caution to the wind with money may also be imprudent with their diet and/or sex.

This card relates to poverty consciousness which is not necessarily exclusive to money, but may also relate to other areas where you feel impoverished. You may feel deprived of the relationships you need, physical intimacy, time, creative opportunities, etc. The deprivation feelings are not necessarily illusory, for most of us there are real deprivations in significant areas of life. There is a very blurry boundary, however, between authentic suffering and self-pity/ victim consciousness. See Resource Fluctuations Happen — Working with Scarcity and Abundance for some ideas on how to thrive while feeling challenged for resources.
