Does my debt mean I have received more than I have given?


This week’s question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I know that you teach that money is energy. It occurred to me that debt may be a reflection of having received more than one has given. Is that accurate? If so, what is the best way to reverse this equation? It seems obvious to say ‘give more’ – but give what? I don’t have extra financial resources. Thanks.

Neagle Code Answer

This is an excellent question!

Many people have issues with debt and the stigma and shame that come along with it.

To address your first question, debt is not a reflection of having received more than one has given.

Debt is essentially a tool and should be used as such. Most people think that debt is “bad”, but imagine what your life would be like without it.

How would you purchase a house or invest in education or experiences for yourself without it?

Instead of thinking of it negatively, be grateful for it.

All that being said, if you’re accumulating debt from a dysfunctional place, it’s very important that you address the underlying reason for your spending habits.

Are you buying things to fill a need (love, security or self esteem) or are you investing in your growth?

The second part of your question deals with something different…

You alluded that it’s tough to give if you’re in debt.

When you give it doesn’t have to be financially. Doing a favor for a neighbor, giving of your time or your talents, and volunteering are just a few ways to “give” until you have the resources to give financially.
