There are different types of currency that makes the world go round and money is only one of them. First there is emotional currency, spiritual currency, physical currency, character currency and financial currency. Let’s examine each:
Emotional currency: emotional currency can be defined as, for example, filling your spouses love tank. You have heard of the term emotionally bankrupt. You have to keep investing emotionally in your relationship in order to keep the passion or bond strong. Building emotional currency comes when you speak your spouses love language and practice forgiveness among other things for emotional connection and interaction.
Spiritual currency: spiritual currency is the inner strength of a person. It’s the power that lies beyond the physical and the ego. It’s renewed inner strength, emotional integrity and power to change your reality. It is acquired through prayer and communion with the Creator.
Physical currency: this currency is simple to understand. The more we invest in our health through exercise, nutrition, relaxation and stretching the greater output we get from our bodies. We feel rejuvenated and gain certain vitality when we take care of our bodies on a deep level. I often say being physically fit is not a goal, it’s a lifestyle. Physical currency pays off in good health.
Financial currency: We are aware of the currency of cold hard cash but there is more to it than that. Financial currency comes in the form of a financial statement, credit, assets and commodities. In fact, financial currency is anything that can gain or create value. Obviously, financial currency can be abused and misused and lead us to financial ruin. While others who properly manage money and assets prosper beyond compare.
Character currency: The greatest of these is character currency. Character currency can get you all the rest, you can’t buy character but character can get you money. You can’t exercise your way into character but character can get you to exercise. Spirituality is part of who you are and a way of life, It will take strength of character to live it out. Character also gives you the self control in order to manage your emotions.
The universe is governed by laws be it spiritual, metaphysical or scientific. Call it karma, cause and effect, relativity, motion, attraction or any other law. Call it what you will, they all stem from the creative source, God. We are only discovering what God has already done but we create our lives through character. We can either shape our life through character or our life will shape our character. The difference is being proactive or reactive.
You’ve heard of Newton’s law: “For every action there’s an equal reaction”. This is found in the bible in Matthew 18:18 when Jesus said “I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. The same is true for character, what you do in your character has effects in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms. At the end of the day your outer world is determined by your inner world. It’s time to start living consciously and proactively.
