The Arigato Money Technique
I came across the arigato money technique in a promo video from Mindvalley this past year. It was a typical morning. Nothing spectacular, or was it?
While listening to my morning affirmations (shout out to Bob Baker!) and out walking Emma, one of those pop-up ads came up that I normally skip but for some reason, perhaps because I love Japan and am part-Okinawan myself, I decided to listen.
Side-note: whenever I go to a new country in general I make sure to learn 'thank you' in that language. It's a fun way to connect with people and more often than not, the smiles and laughs indicate to me it was a positive vibe to share!
The basic idea that was conveyed was this: give gratitude each time you receive AND spend money. The gratitude is the secret ingredient in all holistic practices because it's in extending gratitude throughout that we can take well-being to wealth-being.
I did more research and signed up for an online class, Money EQ, taught by the Japanese author Ken Honda through Mindvalley (those tricky ads!) and I felt like I knew Uncle Ken my whole Life. His easy going, upbeat, and fun vibe was great and I looked forward to our brief class of 10-20 minutes each day for three weeks.
By the end of it, I had a whole new view on my relationship with money, what was blocking me and giving me a negative feeling about it, and I learned a useful tool that I take with me throughout my days.
