Financial health affects the body on every level. Do not for one minute think that your finances do not affect your health. The body is the physical manifestation of the mind. So whether we are faced with health or financial challenges the first step to correcting the situation is to look inward at the role we play in the outcome of our lives.
Money ebb and flow in and out of our lives. It is energy. With our own will, desires, anxiety or fear, we can prevent the two-way flow of money, wealth and abundance in our lives. So being mindful with our thoughts and actions are very important in how we spend our money and also how we hold on to it.
Your subconscious mind is your emotional mind and whatever gets into the emotional mind dictates how you are going to feel. This feeling is set up as vibration in your heart, mind and body that causes high blood pressure and also affects our overall health.
Finances is one of the most emotionally charged topics and must be addressed regardless of our situation. Whether we have the money to pay the rent, mortgage, repairs for the car or utility bills, face the financial situation.
All that leads to stress increase, ulcers, depressed immune system and higher blood pressure. These worries about money affects the body on every level and our belief about money guides us in ways we don't even understand.
Most importantly whatever is impressed is expressed through the body creating anxiety, stress all leading to high blood pressure.
Money isn't everything, but it ranks right up there with oxygen.

When I say financial assets I don't only mean the amount of money you have or the assets you own. Owing a lot of stuff, and having a huge investment portfolio is not the key to happiness.
What I mean is the amount of fulfillment you have in all areas of your life, not just your bank account.
Good financial health to me means I am not stuck in any dysfunctional patterns and belief system that has kept me struggling to pay my bills and getting out of debt. Not living in fear and with feelings of I am not going to have enough money even though I am in a good job and is being paid well or own a successful business.
Financial health should mean being relaxed about money. Being completely at ease financially in mind, body and soul.
For a few minutes stop and consider and imagine yourself having financial freedom, no longer a slave to self-worth issues that cause so many problems.
Start today knowing that you are worthy of a life of financial ease. Worthy of a life that makes you feel happy and fulfilled.
Most of us were brought up with this poverty consciousness and we have witness the many health problems and diseases that our family and friends are dealing with due to this unease within the body.
Poverty mind-set poisons abundance and wealth consciousness. Perspective is everything.
We are not poor, it is all about our mind set. Our feelings is the key in changing everything. Go deep within and explore the feeling there is about money and also about ourselves. Because at the heart of financial health the real issue is self-worth.
To access financial health you always have to go within to see why you are doing without. Until we truly feel worthy of the life we desire, the patterns that prevent us from having all that we want will continue.
If you are stuck in poverty consciousness, today start training your mind and replace it with abundance consciousness. I know it is not easy but with consistent training it is possible.
And finally give. Honor money as energy and give to receive.
You may wonder how giving to going give financial health and a healing of the body, mind and soul. Giving is between you and your creator. Every religion, and many philosophies state you should give ten percent.
Years ago I read Suze Orman's The 9 Steps to Financial Freedom: Practical and Spiritual Steps So You Can Stop Worrying, and she says ask your inner voice how much to give. Heed that inner voice always. And, if that voice says ten percent and you only give five percent, then you are still and will retain your poverty consciousness.
I use to have a problem with that and wondering how the money is really being used. But we should not fret about where the money is going or how it will be spent. Just do your research, choose wisely and give your gift unconditionally for it to work and for you to be blessed and reap financial freedom.
Trusting that you have more than enough will prove to you there is. Of course never get into debt in order to give.
