The Currency of Wellness With Ryan Yokome
What do you think about when you hear the word, “money?” When you receive your monthly paycheck, do you have happy thoughts or feelings of stress?
Or do you have negative thoughts and feel anxious with worry?

Change Your Mindset on Money
“When you know who you are and you're comfortable with that, you can go anywhere and do anything because you don't have to be someone that you're not. You can show up as you, and it's so liberating and freeing.”- Ryan Yokome
Each of us has a personal story with money stemming back to the relationship our parents had.
Whether or not their relationship with money was good, if they said something about money or had a certain attitude and behavior towards it, we picked up on that when we were younger.
Fortunately, their experience with money does not have to be the same as our story and relationship with money. To help us change our own money story, Ryan explained the concept of Be-Do-Have and its reversal pattern, Have-Do-Be.
A majority of us believe that there is a lack of money. However, it is an abundant source of energy that is always available to us. All we have to do is change our thinking and approach to money and do reverse thinking with Have-Do-Be.
First believe that you already have the money that you need. Next, do something differently that will allow you to receive that money and finally become that person who has the money.
Focus on the Essence of Money
“How you tap into a different space of magnetizing money in your life is how you focus on the essence. You focus on the feeling that money will give you if you had those things now. What's the essence? Would you feel more joy, happiness, relaxed? Cause you're not actually after money, but a feeling. “-Ryan Yokome
The key to help you change your mindset on money is to focus on the essence of money and what it means to you.
How do you feel if you imagine that you already have all the money or monthly paycheck that you need to get to where you want to be? Is it happiness? Relaxation? Success?
You don't want money, but a feeling. The feeling that money gives you. As soon as you focus on that feeling, you will change what you do because your actions will be different and you'll become a different person during that process.
You want to put all these feelings about money on the table and process the feeling to help make the unconscious conscious. What's your story with money? Is it your story or your family's story?
Tap Into The 5 Positive Money Beliefs
“Money is just an exchange of energy. The challenge comes when we have an unhealthy relationship with money that deflects it.”- Ryan Yokome
To experience the positive mindset change of currency, Ryan explained the 5 Positive Money Beliefs:
Money is neutral and we are the ones who give it energy and meaning. You can actually experience how your life is changing depending on how you approach money.
Money gives meaning when you notice external changes such as where you live, what possessions you have, what food you eat each day etc.
People will also give you clues that money is changing your life because they will notice it too. They will notice that there is something different about you.
Lastly, because we can change the energy and meaning that money gives us, you decide what your money story is and will be.
Life is not based on luck or genes, but the choices that we make and that creates our money story.
Treat money as if it were a person. Now, how would you treat money if you were dating it? How do you treat it when you log into your online bank account or when you get paid? Does it give you happiness or cause you stress?
What is the purpose of money for you? Why do you want to make more money and what do you want to do with it?
If you're not giving money a purpose or being intentional with it, then you're not connecting with it. Ryan gave a great example that you connect with your money when you pay your bills because that money helps pay the salaries of the employees of the other business.
When you give your money a purpose, you tap into the essence of it and how it makes you feel.
Ryan believes that if you give to another person, that you're actually giving back to yourself as well. So if you shift into a different state of love and abundance, you pass that feeling on to other people.
Giving the genuine feelings of love and abundance to others is just what many of us need to feel that excitement and purpose for life that we crave.
Give compliments, a smile, or a “Have a nice day!” with real feeling the next time you're at the check out counter.
For many of us, it is so much easier to give than to receive because we haven't learned how to receive love. Past relationships and experiences have caused us to feel like we didn't receive the love that we wanted or needed.
Because of this, it can be hard to receive love from others or we don't know why other people are tryitng to give us love. Especially in a world of technology, we are starving for true connection with other people, but we don't know how to accept it when it's given to us.
When we receive money from work or as a gift from another person, we can practice receiving love and abudance from another source. This source that will help us buy food, pay for a home, and use to help us get to where we want to be in life.

About The Author, Lauren Bryant, Podcast Production
is the Podcasting Assistant and Show Notes Writer for Wellness + Wisdom. She has a BBA in both Marketing and Spanish for Business as well as certificates in Advanced Business Communications and International Business from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire.
Lauren’s wellness journey began at a young age when she joined her local YMCA swim team, The Wave, of La Crosse, WI. One of the most profound views on wellness that anyone has said to her was when she was an assistant swim coach for that same YMCA swim team.
One day during a practice, former head swim coach, Jon Brenner, shared with her that the most important thing about coaching the swimmers was that “It doesn’t matter if they become the best athletes in the world. What’s important is that we give them the tools and guidance they need to live a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.”
Since hearing those words, she has taken it to heart to not only focus on continuously living her own healthy lifestyle, but to help others pursue their wellness goals as well.
Lauren is not only an avid swimmer, but a fan of running, yoga, cooking, and doing any activity outside that involves being surrounded by nature. In the Fall of 2014, she completed a long-awaited goal of walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain.
According to Lauren, wellness is about finding gratitude and joy in doing any type of physical or self-care activity that we love. Wellness means providing ourselves with self-love, good nutrition, and the inner peace that our individual minds and bodies need.
