Money is not necessary for a person to live a healthy, happy life. How do I know this? I’ve lived a life where I traveled from place to place never spending a dime on transportation or food. I worked for everything I got, don’t get me wrong. We mutually helped eachother with something we needed in every situation and all my thoughts became reality. This is still true. I live in different times now where money is necessary in certain instances, but I create that reality.
Truly, all we need is a tool to achieve what we are looking for. Money is a tool, a means to get something that we want or need. It is also a tool that very powerful people use to enslave the masses into submission… but that’s a whole other story. Today I ask you – what do you have to offer? What can you give someone in exchange for what you need? And what is it that you need to survive?
I recently made a trade with Annie from MontanaSolarCreations. In exchange for the headband above, she is giving me 2 handmade cloth diapers for our future baby!
On many occasions I have traveled to farms that need seasonal help with this and that. Carlos and I spent one week on a farm a few hours from here. We helped them build a new pig pen for their baby piglets, we did lots of canning, harvested veggies, and slaughtered many animals while there. In exchange for our help, we were sent home with 200 pounds of meat, easily. Pork, rabbit, duck, and chicken.
My mom has traded hand-knit scarves in exchange for deer meat from local hunters. I also know some people who trade their work as a groundskeeper in exchange for their work on the house they’re living in. Basically, a person can truly get everything they need through trades and just being open to what it is you want out of life. Law of attraction. You get what you give.
Have you ever traded for something?
