Fear is pretty strongly linked with money when you think about it. We fear that:
- wealth will change us.
- we won't be able to make ends meet.
- we will make less than our spouses.
- people will judge us if we don't own stylish things.
- people will judge us if we do own stylish things.
- the love of money is the root of all evil.
- money is used to keep the oppressed, oppressed.
- if we spend all of our money we will never get any more.
The fear and loathing we link to money is what keeps the law of attraction from working well, or from working in more mysterious ways. Maybe we need to have government-encouraged charitable giving, not because people aren't generous, but because the fear of poverty otherwise impedes charity and the government moves in to fill the void. Perhaps it's not a fear of poverty at all the stays our hand - maybe some people are afraid, deep down, that being too generous will bring too much abundance into their lives!
Money's a scary thing, no doubt about it. Maybe it's so scary because it can be solid, which makes us feel like we understand that stuff. I'm sure we didn't actually "invent" money; we tapped into the laws of the Universe to find a way to turn a day's work on the farm into a tankful of gas. It may look very mundane, but there's something very magical about a force that powerful.
