70. Do You Have a Chronic Shortage of Money?
Money forms the dredges of the earth. It is very controversial and many unpleasant things are done with it. I always thought that money was horrible and I was mad at it. In my atelier I painted a painting completely black, threw some coins against it and wrote in paint: “Money makes the world go crazy!” The paint reached the walls! It wasn’t until I was finished with the canvas that I realized: it’s not about the money or the shortage of money; it’s about the people in whose hands it is!
Money is a means
A while ago, I saw a great commercial (whose was it again?) about what money can do. Money corrupts; money offers possibilities. In it, money was shown to be a means of reaching your goals. That it can make an enormous difference. For 50 Euros, you can help a young woman in Sri Lanka to get nurse’s training, just to mention one example. It became clear to me that money can make your life easier and that with money you can improve other people’s lives.
Money doesn’t make someone happy; a shortage of money makes someone unhappy
What personally touches me is the unequal division of money. That so many people have to manage with so little and that there are a few who have so incredibly much money without committing themselves to improving the world.
Thankfully there are a growing number of “conscious millionaires and billionaires” who think differently about this and use their abundance to help others. An increasing number of people are for the introduction of a guaranteed basic income for everyone. I sincerely applaud this idea because I strongly believe that we can live much more from within our hearts when we don’t necessarily have to work for the money. And the idea that people will become lazy? I don’t believe that. People want to do something for others so badly, to contribute to something, that’s just part of our blueprint!
Have a look at the website of BIEN: Basic Income Earth Network to learn more about this wonderful idea that has already started to become reality!
Money provides opportunities
I often meet business owners who have fantastic ideas about natural power supplies or organic food or eco-apparel, but who can’t seem to get their ideas put into motion because of a lack of funds to implement their plans. That is distressing to me because the type of people who have these fantastic ideas should actually be accommodated so they can carry out their plans for the betterment of the world! We would, for example, all have had free energy by now!
Together we can move mountains
Have your heard about “crowd funding”. This is a means of bringing small amounts of money together to form large amounts so that great projects can get started. This is a great development to me! When we pool our energy and resources, people who can improve lives have the freedom to do so. I really like this and always contribute to crowd funding projects! It gives these innovators wings! As far as that goes, we humans can do a lot more than we think we can: the singer Birdy sang about it already in her song: People, help the people.
Do you have enough?
And how about you? Do you have enough money to live a good life? If that isn’t the case, what is the cause of this? How do you think about money? How were you raised regarding money? Was there always a shortage of money in your family and do you still carry the message within yourself: ‘‘There is not enough!” “Be frugal.” “Don’t put so much on your sandwich; it all costs money.” Were you given your brother or sister’s hand-me-downs? Have you had bad experiences with money? Was there a lot of arguing about money in your home? Look at your own past and be aware that you have the right to have enough money to live a good life!
It is my wish for you; it’s my wish for everyone!
Money is fun,
money is good.
Not everybody has it,
but everybody should!
If you are the type of person that has suffered from a shortage of money, or maybe still does, give yourself a chance to improve your relationship with money. I came up with an exercise for this.
How do you improve your relationship with money with the MIR-Method?
- Put a bill in your hand.
- Stroke your hand that has the money in it.
- Do all of the steps of the MIR-Method.
You only need to do this once to make it clear to your subconscious that money is okay and that’s it good that it’s with you. My wish for you is that you will have an abundance of money and that if you are a wealthy person, you will use your money to support people who want to make a difference in this world!
Would you like to help me?
I would like to see the names of people who need money for their project. I’m talking about projects that work on the improvement of the environment, nutrition, textiles, education, and energy supplies, in short, everything we need to make this a better world. Feel free to mention their website here! And if you see one among them that touches you, look to see if you could already reach out to them!
Give these people a podium and write their name and website below! Thank you!
(Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!)
My wish for you is a good relationship with money and that you may do well!
P.S. Will you help spread the MIR-Method? You would do me a big favor by forwarding this article to other people! Feel free to post it to your Facebook page or send it via e-mail, Twitter or Linked-In! Use the icons on the left-hand side or below! Thank you!

Hi Mirelle, I love your contribution to humanity! I have improved myself so much with the MIR-Method! I am president of a folk club and we need to buy our property that we hold music festials on. I feel crowd funding could be our answer here. Thank you again <3
Yes, crowdfunding can absolutely give great results! Give it a try!
Good luck! And thank you for your kind words!
Beliefs around Lack relating to money and other things need to be cleared and healed for all of us to have more than enough and then some. Generosity brings happiness! I help Spiritual Empaths and sensitive people who care about the planet, do their healing so they can live their purpose. Please see my website for how you can work with me. May you have abundance in all areas of your life.
When I was introduced to the MIR method in 2012, I was impressed and have been practicing on and off as needed. It is immensely helpful and gave me interesting insights. Thank you.
Completely agree with you about money, Mireille. Had similar feelings since a young age and generally struggled with the concept. Many of us seem to spend more time stressing about having enough rather than being able to help others and clean the planet.
Over the last 10 years I have become a chemical free person using organic food, natural cleaners, essential oils, natural supplements etc., practically established a chemical free household.
When launched a small business about 10 years ago to promote natural products in local markets and field days trying to help people to see that prevention is more important rather than treatment, I found that the message was and is largely unheard. In the process of trying to make this business happen I ended up with debt and no savings, which with hard work I was planning to balance.
A few weeks ago, all of a sudden (without further notice) due to the current circumstances everything stopped. No more local markets, no more field days, etc. and around 80% of the income stopped. The little income left is from the website and as a bonus lots of uncertainty, sleepless nights and stress.
For now, I would need more customers who support natural products and get their natural health journey started or continue it.
Some of the products are made here, but I also started recommending very good natural products that many of my customers and myself have been using with great success over the years and they are readily available in Europe and many other countries.
I have a plan or vision to collaborate with other people and business owners who believe in natural health and I would like to continue that. If we could help each other promoting each other’s natural health and other natural products that would help all of us.
Please have a look at my website and let me know your thoughts and ideas how we could make a living helping each other.
Many thanks, sincerely

P.S. Just completed the MIR method with my last $20 note I have 🙂
Good luck Chris – I am a small business owner too, in Melbourne Australia without Job Keeper or any other keeper so l guess, like the last 28 years of business, I’m going to wing it again on a prayer and look for a soft landing. Best of luck and like you l will try this too. I believe energy follows thought.
http://www.kiva.org is a site for crowd funding for many projects around the globe for individuals and communities, in various categories. Most of the crowd-funded loans are paid back & money can be paid back to the lenders or used to fund another project. Kiva also does its own fund-raising to cover admin costs, so none of that comes out of money people put toward projects. It is an organization that I only recently learned about & will definitely be supporting- actually, the plan is for my two young boys to use some pocket money & choose a project they’d like to help.
Money is such a big topic, as it does make so much difference. I was brought up with struggle, and know that the struggle energy lingers in me now. On a logical level I realise that money is a tool & it is neither good or evil…. it’s all about how it is used. I will certainly try your method to get the message to my subconscious 🙂 I know first hand that your method works. I was introduced to your MIR method 7 years ago & it was the key thing thing that helped me to shift toward healing deep grief I was suffering, after losing a baby. Thank you so much for doing what you do & giving your amazing method to the world.
What a great idea to make peace with money by way of the MIR-Method.
I experimented all my life with getting by with very very little of it. Only the rent and energy and water and some food, and health insurence needed to be payed in money, the rest was up me to make myself, which my mother Annet always advised us to do when we really wanted to have some thing.
The many kinds of work I did from 1965 onward, could easily fill a museum. That could be a fine project to realise: Because I love to inspire every one at any age to go and do hand and craft and art work, getting inspired by Nature and all its marvelous materials.
I still look forward to have a place like that where I can also show how the recycling and up cycling of lots of ‘wasted’ materials can be inspiring and fulfilling and very environmentally friendly . As exchange I could make paintings, drawings, a portrait, or do bookbinding.
I feel that being busy creatively will give a fine buzz to live in admiration and in peace any where in our world.
Thank you so much for your generous offer. Bless you.
It is my deepest desire to for all beings to realize peace, have basic needs met, to eat simple/clean/well. I have several service project ideas, however, feel first to found a meditation/retreat center and cafe serving whole/raw/vegan/yogic foods.
I deeply desire to connect with people who desire to help others realize their dreams simply because they can and those who desire to live simply/peacefully/well/be of service.
Anyone feeling inspired by such a project, I would love to connect with you by email: email@example.com
I don’t have a website as yet, I’ll build one if there is interest and they will come 😉
May All be Blessed,
Hope you will realize many of your ideas. There are so many longing for the same things you do! Just a matter of connecting to each other.

I share these three groups with you as they have each come to my attention within the last week! I am not sure what my role can be but to share with you their need is my beginning.
Wonderful that you share these projects, thank you! I will look into them and see if I can somehow connect to them or make them known via the people that are connected to me.
Thank you for sharing!
Thanks for the opportunity to share our projects. The only reason I haven’t yet launched the first series is due to lack of funding for it. But I continue to post frequently to my facebook page, and it continues to grow. It’s the Little Engine Who Could. At this point, I’d like to have plenty of money raised to finally launch in Spring of 2016 (if not sooner).
In fact, Mireille, I want you to make an “appearance”, too, for my series. 🙂 Oh, I haven’t said what it is. 🙂 It’s The Holistic Breast Cancer Prevention Series: From Fear to Empowerment Here is the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/HolisticBreastCancerPreventionSeries
That sounds wonderful! Yes, I would like the MIR-Method to be in there. It is a great support for people who are going through the whole illness process, from diagnosis to healing. I looked at your page and it has wonderful information. Do you also have a website? If not, please build one to make sure the information remains on it! On Facebook it all ‘disappears’ as days go by.
Good luck and thank you for your wonderful work!
Greetings, Mireille Mettes
Love to connect and learn more and help others too.
Hope it helps you a great deal! And thank you for connecting!
By “bill” do you mean the piece of paper from a builder or a garage telling me how much I owe them? Or a £10 note?
Ha ha ha, oh the language! Yes, I mean the piece of paper that means money. But… what would happen if we would stroke with a bill from the garage in our hands? Ha ha ha, nice experiment! Maybe it won’t hurt as much afterwards (just kidding). I guess ‘bill’ is American and ‘note’ is English?
