In a new series of Walks for you to try out by yourself using our audio guides, we continue with Money. Plug in your earphones, pop your shoes on, and head out to the streets!
When might you want to go on a Money Walk?
Money – marvel, mystery, misery? We all have a relationship with money, the key thing is: are we aware of it? Money can make you feel stuck; money can make you feel free. The wisdom seems to suggest: it’s not a question of how much money you’ve got; it’s how your relationship with it manifests itself. Do you live from month to month? Do you save? Do you invest? Do you start from a scarcity mindset? Or do you know that enough really is enough, and there’s more than enough to go round. Money: we need to walk about it!
What do you need to go on this Walk?
Yourself, of course. (All of those bits of you, no hiding now.) A little bit of time, 45 minutes is great, give yourself an hour if you can. Shoes and weather-proof clothing are useful. And a phone with headphones so you can listen to our audio guides.
OK, let’s go!
And just to say: firstly – thanks for being here. It means you’re doing something for yourself, about yourself, which might make all the difference. Secondly, and more practically, you’re going to do three short Tune Ups to get your amazing navigation system (your body!) into a good place for your Quest, each of about ten minutes. Then you’re going to go on a Quest of about fifteen minutes (longer if you have more time) focused on Money. Right, let’s do this.
Tune Up One: Let’s Get Curious
About 10 mins.
The first Tune Up is all about tuning in to the world around us and getting curious.
Click play and start wandering now.
Tune Up Two: Take Your Time
About 10 mins.
The second Tune Up is about slowing down and making more time, to allow more space between the gaps so to speak.
Click play and start wandering (more slowly!) now.
Tune Up Three: Lighting Up Life
About 10 mins.
The third Tune Up is about sensing the beauty all around you. It really is a beautiful wake-up call. Don’t miss a thing!
Click play and start wandering beautifully now.
The Quest: Money
About 15 mins (or longer if you like).
Now you’re all tuned up, your navigation system (aka your body, your mind, your heart, your DNA, your footprint, your imagination, all your senses including your wonderful sense of self) can go on your Money Quest.
Click play and consider using some of these quests below as prompts for your own Money enquiry
- Streets, show me options for how I can better relate to money
- How can I make today an unusually rich day?
- How can I appreciate the world more?
- Dear streets, give me some money-making ideas
- Hello world, show [insert your name] what [he/she/they] doesn’t know about money
- Show [insert your name] what enough really means
Oh, the advanced version?
