Hi this is Joan and this is episode #5 of The Prosperity Show. And thanks for being here today. Our main site is prosperityplace.com, where you can find lots of information about how to improve your relationship with money and yourself. And on today's show we're going to talk about something that I think is really important, and it has to do with one of the main feelings that people express through money, and if you get this one, you'll be able to really look at your money in a different way and what you perceive your money problems to be.
First, let me give you a little background. I think that one of the most prevalent feelings that humans share is the feeling of being alone and alienated. Now there's a number of levels we can look at where this comes from. You could say that it comes from when we come from spirit into matter that we lose our awareness of the all-there-is, or whatever you want to call it. And we are suddenly by ourselves and alone. And of course when we go through the birth process, we're suddenly separated from our mother, we're out there alone. It's a different kind of world. And as we're brought up in our families, there's a tendency for parents to want to see the children grow up in the parent's image. And so they don't always give the child space to be who he or she might be, and the child learns at an early age to please the parents that he or she has to be someone he or she isn't. And this causes feelings of separation from self, and these feelings of being alone. And because our life stories are created by these threads of emotion that we're acting out, over and over again, we all create our reality with our thoughts, beliefs and emotions. And I believe that if we look at the emotions we can see that our life stories are the pay-offs for our emotions. And you'll see that people have different themes that run through their lives. And the ones that are really the core feelings, the deepest feelings, are often those that are the hardest to look at. Or the hardest to recognize. And this feeling of being alone is so deep in humans, because the fear of it is so deep because we instinctively understand that to be alone is not to thrive, is not to survive. So you could even say this fear of being alone is really the fear of dying. And it's not something that we ever talk about, or ever really look at cause it starts at this very early age, when before we're even verbal, and it just becomes part of who we are. And one of the ways we act it out more than any other way is through money...
