Do you ever wish you had more money? Do you wonder why others seem to have money flow to them and you have to work hard for everything? Or do you have money come easily to you but you feel guilty about it? Or do you want to reject the need to be dependent on money?
When we worry about money we feel stress, we may not take risks that can provide rewards, our creativity is limited, our relationships may suffer and we find it harder and harder to find a solution.
Having worked with a number of clients who are challenged with money issues I realize that a lot of us were taught that money creates struggle and getting it is supposed to be hard. The old idea that there is only so much to go around still resonates! We live in a world that talks about and encourages a scarcity mentality.
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer! I have to get mine before you get yours! Money is the root of all evil! There is just not enough to go around!
Actually when you think about it money is just energy. We exchange time and our energy or effort to make it or someone else did and then they gave it to us. When we use it we are just sharing this energy to purchase something else.Â This quote from The Magical Work of the Soul states this well: “All substance is an energy in motion. It lives and flows. Money is symbolically a golden, flowing stream of concretized vital energy!”
The universe has an inexhaustible amount of energy! So do you ever wonder why money seems unavailable to you!
If you are having any challenges around money whether it is: needing more, being uncomfortable with what you have, wishing to reject a dependence on it, or getting a fair exchange for what you do to earn money-it is usually helpful to figure out the unconscious beliefs you live by. You may be surprised to find out that you have created blocks to allowing money. Most of these blocks or beliefs started when we were very young-we learned them from parentsÂ or family members.
The connection between our thoughts and results is amazing. We have all heard stories about what a mother can do to save a child when threatened or how athletes use the power of their mind to support remarkable feats. The same is true when we hold negative thoughts or blocks. Below is a simple inventory to take for a chance to discover what thoughts you have that may be getting in the way of what you want!
When I took it for the first time, I realized that I thought one had to work hard to get money! After work to shift thisÂ I now intend that money can come easily to me in a multitude of ways. So last month I won a $2300 prize from the local Chamber of Commerce and all I had to do was show up! What a great example to me of possibility! (Results may vary and are not guaranteed-isn’t that what they say on weight loss programs!!!)
Here is a chance for you to find out what you believe! The following inventory is adopted from Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. First take a blank sheet of paper and number 1-20 on the side. Then read each question and write down the first word or phrase that comes to mind. Don’t think a lot, just write and don’t stop until all are answered.
1. People with money areâ¦
2. Money makes peopleâ¦
3. Iâd have more money if â¦
4. My Dad thought money wasâ¦
5. My Mom always thought money wouldâ¦
6. In my family money causedâ¦
7. Money equalsâ¦
8. If I had money Iâd not be â¦
9. If I could afford it Iâdâ¦
10. If I had some money Iâd â¦
11. Iâm afraid that if I had money I wouldâ¦
12. Money is â¦
13. Money causesâ¦
14. Having money is not â¦
15. In order to have more money I needâ¦
16. When I have money I usuallyâ¦
17. I think money isâ¦
18. If I werenât so cheap Iâd â¦
19. People think money â¦
20. Being broke isâ¦
When finished look over your answers and see ifÂ you notice anything. Look for answers that surprise you or patterns. If you think money is hard to get then is it any wonder that you always need to work to get it. Maybe you have some negative perceptions of people with money…then why would you want to become like them!!! If money only creates conflict then why have it!
After you see something you want to change, you will want to explore why this is true for you. What old experience caused you to think this way. Are you still being influenced by family patterns. Find someone who seems to have a different belief and watch them, mentor with them, or read about others who overcame a similar belief. Consider if the old thinking is worth keeping. Create new intentions for the future, do EFT (emotional freedom technique) on each of the beliefs you want to change, or create a vision board of what you want to manifest. Freeing up your limiting beliefs and replacing them with new beliefs and powerful thoughts is a way to open the flow of money!
It is time to allow money and wealth to be a simple comfortable part of your life! There is no need to struggle. Our thoughts truly do create our reality and our unconscious thoughts are the most powerful. These are the thoughts that run wild! Shifting your self-limiting beliefs will make a big difference! What do you have to lose to try this?
Consider this quote from Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way, “Luxury is a learned practice for most of us!” Could you use a little luxury???
Call me if you know of anyone who would benefit from assistance with releasing limiting beliefs. I believe in wealth for everyone!
