sphere 02: wealth
The second sphere deals with the physical plane of existence with regards to what we have in the material sense, describing both inner and outer resources. These assets form our sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Through this sphere, our strongest desires are manifested and it guides the manner in which we meet our obligations. Consequently, it is related to our peace of mind.
Some of us identify with what we own; others with what we are. Both represent what we value, and we attract to ourselves that which we value. Thus this sphere is where we build our true value and develop our power of attraction. From here we draw on emotional and mental inner resources to deal with the situations with which life presents us.
Our outer resources are our finances and physical possessions, the movable property that we own (as opposed to real estate). These assets form our sense of security. As such, this is the sphere of liberty, because it allows options in life that having a secure financial picture produces.
This is the sphere of stability, of resourcefulness, and of slow, steady progress. It is also the realm of our value system in general and our personal feelings of self worth. Here we discover how a grounded life can be created, one that is self-sufficient and in line with our values.
