It’s rare that I offer a guest blog on my Awakening Self website. But I felt compelled to share with you someone who has had an impact on my life – in particular, my relationship to money.  Her name is Morgana Rae and she’s known for creating financial abundance by putting love first.

As a spiritual person, if you’re anything like me, money can be an uncomfortable subject. We tend to judge it as “bad” or “not spiritual”, and then cause ourselves suffering around the issues of finance, income, business, and success.

But Morgana Rae helped me shift that. She helped me understand money as energy, and that a loving relationship with money – just like the loving relationships I want to cultivate with people and other aspects of my life and myself – is good, healthy, and only supports the work I do in the world and my spiritual awakening. And yours, too.

So I’m offering an interview with Morgana for you to get a sense of this paradigm shift in how we see money on the spiritual path. As she says, life and awakening is an alchemical process – “magic” – that transforms everything we experience and encounter, including money, into “spiritual gold”.  I’m also passing on her free invitation to a special summit on love, money, and magic at the end of the interview!

Morgana Rae headshotToday I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 4 of the Virtual Blog Tour of author Morgana Rae whose book Financial Alchemy: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation launches on Amazon on Monday January 23, 2023.

MORGANA RAE is the international #1 best-selling author of “Financial Alchemy®: Twelve Months of Magic and Manifestation.” She is regarded to be the world’s #1 authority on transforming relationship with money. She has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, all the major television networks, Coast to Coast Radio, and she was a recurring Money Maven on Fox TV.  Morgana’s fans call her “the Money Goddess” because of the many documented examples of clients making unexpected income of 4, 5, 6, and even 7 figures within hours of changing their relationship with money. A pioneer in personal development for close to 30 years, Morgana writes, speaks, and coaches from a desire to empower idealistic entrepreneurs, artists, healers, and humanitarians to have a big impact in the world… and to heal the rift between heart, spirit, and money.

Morgana's book coverIn her book, Financial Alchemy, Morgana walks you through her time-tested program to turn your personal Money Monster of scarcity into a Money Honey of abundance. The book is a self-guided system to help you uncover your limiting blocks to abundance and transform your relationship with money using a SUCCESS FORMULA that keeps you on track and positively “magnetic”.

Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Morgana when I got to ask her some questions on money, success, spiritual growth, and stepping through fear. I hope you enjoy it.

Connie Habash: Why is having and nurturing a sense of personal Magic (or Alchemy) so important to enjoying our lives and evolving our souls?

Morgana Rae: It’s important to nurture a sense of personal magic because we’re talking about our relationship with life, getting in alignment, and not being at war with existence. This is the state of feeling that we can have what we want, that we can be in partnership with life, and that we can make use of anything that happens, no matter how challenging.

This is really where Alchemy comes to play. My personal definition of Alchemy is the transmutation of leaden human experience into spiritual gold. Then anything that happens, the car accident, the financial setback, the broken heart–any of it–can have some gem, some gift, some learning that will open up our relationship with ourselves and with the universe. The challenge becomes the key to the kingdom, the path to our heart’s deepest desire.

Connie Habash: What are your 3 favorite Magical things that you do for yourself, Morgana, to help you live a charmed life every day?  

Morgana Rae: Oh, dear me. Let’s see!

One big thing I do is I talk to my money. I’m talking about money as if money were a human being, and my money is a person worthy of my deepest admiration and unconditional love—having nothing to do with dollars and cents. He’s a tall, dark, handsome imaginary guy, and I speak with him every morning. Sometimes I’ll ask, “What is our priority today, what would make you happy?”  The big secret here is that the only thing that makes him happy is stuff that respects me and ultimately supports my happiness and empowerment.

Now, it may not be what I feel like doing that day, like balancing my check book, or doing something outside my comfort zone, but it will always be in my highest good. In my Financial Alchemy®, the one that’s coming out on January 23, I’ve included a daily entry for making money happy!

Another favorite thing that I do–and I do this more on a weekly basis (but you could do it daily also), is to ask the universe for help with something. Even when you can’t think of anything, ask for something! Ask for a short line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, or a great parking space.  Learn to ask it and let it go.  Treat this like a game that strengthens that muscle of manifestation.  I choose something that’s outside of my control. Then I place a request. It’s sort of like saying, “Universe, if you aren’t too busy, I think I would like a new client this week.”  Then I tend to forget about it, and it happens.

Here’s my third yummy practice.  Every night before I go to bed, (and this is also in the book… I’m just GIVING you some of my favorite practices!) I make a list of at least five successes. They can be big and small. Washing dishes counts! It’s been scientifically researched, and human beings have amnesia about good things, so it really helps to make yourself recall your wins and write them down.

You may think nothing happened that day. Then by the time you come up with your five successes, you’ll think of number six, number seven, number eight, number nine… things just keep popping up.

There’s something really magnetic about acknowledging and recognizing your successes every night either through your own action or just lovely things that happen.  It just charges your manifestation batteries.

I’m going to add some bonus magical stuff, other things that I have found really, really effective at helping me live a charmed life:

  • Self-care is always magical! Make that a priority. 
  • Make a habit of doing things that scare you. 
  • Carve out time to dream. Here’s a tip: I talked about having conversations with money.  Sometimes I’ll just have conversations with the universe and just ask something like, “Hey Universe, how do you want to use me?”  And that keeps building the connection, because I get very interesting information that way.
  • Get out of that forcing energy of making things happen right now. 
  • Desire things without attachment, and do what needs to be done.  

You want to talk about magical things? Taking action is crazy magical! Action shows you and the universe that you’re serious. There’s something that happens when you take action. 

And because it’s magic, the results are surprising, it’s not necessarily that you get the result that you wanted, or expected, when you wanted and expected.  Sometimes it’s not what you expected and it’s a million times better!

Connie Habash: What thoughts, fears &/or personal qualities actually block our ability to manifest the things, money and people we desire in our lives?

Morgana Rae: Fear! Fears, worries, and deep, deep beliefs that we’re not good enough, that we can’t have what we want… after years of trying and failing, getting our heart broken, and all the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” that just kind of come with the human experience. 

When our fears or limiting beliefs take over, they can show up in two extremes.  

1) We give up, and then we don’t take the actions to make things possible to come to us. Or, the other extreme…

2) We get into a controlling, forcing, chasing, needy place. 

Think about any relationship where you’re needy, graspy, and insecure.  You don’t trust your partner, and you’re terrified your partner’s going to leave you.  Imagine that partner is a lover. Now imagine that partner is money. (It’s the same dynamic!) Maybe you stop taking care of yourself. Maybe you sacrifice yourself—your dignity, your ideals, your happiness. Maybe you find yourself putting everybody else first. NOT attractive! To money or love…

Pretending your fears and hurts don’t exist isn’t helpful. What we ignore or suppress gets bigger and louder until it gets our attention. That’s why in Financial Alchemy® we face the monster FIRST. The magic happens after we slay the monster: all that remains is love. That next deep experience of being loved dissolves a lot of blocks.

After that, small daily actions of self-care—taking a walk in the sunshine, putting on some nice clothes, going to the gym, saying no to working for free–work like a magical manifesting serum.
