“Arigato in, Arigato out” is Ken’s mantra with money, and he promises, it’s not going to cost you anything!
Ken Honda of Tokyo, Japan, known to be the Marie Kondo of money, talks on the podcast about the Japanese art of making peace with your money. Do you use money or does money use you? Is your money happy or unhappy? Ken encourages permission to enjoy money and cleansing our relationship to money.
Ken encourages permission to enjoy money! He shares the confusion and devastation with money and a person’s death that marked his journey of meaning, and how he came to support millions of people in gratitude, following your heart, and finding your gifts as part of the path to money that appreciates.
Ken explains that the distance to happiness is amazingly equal and always same regardless of your circumstances and identities. While it may not be uncomfortable to realize that money is not the problem, Ken brings this conversation to a deep level of self where money is a neutral energy. We put lots of emotional garbage into our relationship with money, which can clutter and cloud it.
Ken talks about embracing your ability to receive, how to cleanse family shame around abundance, how to be vulnerable and ask for support, how the rich and poor have unhappy relationships to money, and how we can compel a planetary shift with a happy relationship to money.
“We are born for expressing our who we are and being authentic self.” ~ Ken Honda
