Does your money creation tap into and exercise qualities within you that strengthen who you are?
Guiding Question: Does this process develop and expand you and your life, or does it take you away from what is core and special about you?
Do you feel that the energy you give to bring money in is in balance?
There are three main ways we engage our energy to create money:
Guiding Question: Is the nature of this energy having a net positive or net negative effect?
How valuable do you feel what you create is for yourself and the world?

How good do you feel about the non-financial costs and benefits of your money source?
Consider things like:
Guiding Question: Do the non-financial outcomes of your money creation contribute value to your life, or do they contribute negatively to the big picture?
How satisfied are you with the money?
This has five main pieces:
Guiding Question: Does the money that comes in feel in balance with the energy you engage (section 2) and what you produce (section 3)? Is it in balance with what you need to financially to nourish your life?
Generally, how satisfied are you with the price you pay for what you buy?
Guiding Question: Is the value you bring in with your money in balance with the energy it takes to create that money?
How balanced does your money feel across the breadth of your life?
Guiding Question: Do you do a good job of balancing your financial resources amid the myriad of pulls and tugs on your pocketbook, or do you have a sense of deprivation in some and/or overvaluation in others?
As you use your money, does it bring value and energy back to you?
Guiding Question: Do you use money in ways that are disconnected from what really matters to you, or do you experience authentic value and gain vital energy when you use money?
What does your money creation tap into and exercise within you?
Whatever your role in bringing money into your life, the process will tap into and exercise components within you. The important thing is: Does this process expand you and your life? Or does it take you away from what is special about you?
What energy do you give to bring in money?
Examples: This is three fold - using the example of a professional hair dresser:
In a big picture sense, what do you do to fulfill your role in whatever way you bring in money? Consider the different ways you give energy. Is the nature of this energy having a positive or negative effect? Is it in balance with your greater MEC?
What value do you receive money to produce?
You receive money because you contribute something that others value. This is one of the ways your MEC connects you to the world outside yourself. Considering both yourself and the world beyond, what are your sentiments regarding the value you produce? What are your sentiments regarding the impact?
Note* I am not saying that all value is transactional. People often produce value for which there is no money involved. Much like all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares, though money is always exchanged for value, value is not always exchanged for money.
What non-financial costs and benefits come back to you?
Money isn’t the only thing that comes back to you through your money creation. Do the non-financial outcomes of your money creation contribute value to your life, or do they contribute negatively to the big picture?
What financial value do you create?
Examples: This has several components.
Most importantly, does the financial value you create reflect the energy you put out and the value you produce? Is it in balance with the financial resources you need to effectively nourish your unique life?
Price. How much money do you pay for the what you bring in?
Or: How much financial value do you use for the value you bring in?
Do you feel like you get a lot value for your money? Or do you feel like you work long and hard and that it hardly brings back in what you need? How much you personally value a dollar is a component of price. Most importantly, is the value you bring in with your money in balance with your creation of money?
How is your money balanced across the breadth of your life?
Are some areas of your life financially neglected, or do you do a good job of balancing your financial resources amid the myriad of pulls and tugs on your pocketbook?
Does your money bring value and energy back to you?
Do you use money in ways that are disconnected from you, making the experience unsatisfying? Or do you connect your money with you, giving you experiences of value and energizing your life?
