Money can often hold stories. Every culture has folk tales surrounding the concept, advantages, and downfalls in the quest for financial security.
What has been YOUR money story? What beliefs, helpful or harmful, do you hold around money?
Our relationship with money is like any relationship. It requires maintenance, good communication, and the desire to get to the root of any energetic blockages or hiccups. Many people struggle with limiting beliefs about money such as:
- I’m not good at managing money/budgeting
- Money is a curse/the root of all evil
- I don’t deserve to have money/I’ll always be in debt
- I’m not capable of manifesting wealth
Toxic Money Mentality
Money stories run deep and can damage not only our relationship with ourselves and others, but our business and creative endeavors as well. The simple truth is that toxic money mentality = toxic relationship patterns.
When we understand that our beliefs about money are generational, emotional, and often linked to fear or shame, then we can begin to unravel those limiting ideas and liberate a new, empowering story. As we untie the knots of lack mentality, we create room for abundance (it’s like loosening those constrictive drawstrings on your pants…give yourself breathing room!).
So many people blame money for all of their problems. They say it’s the reason they can’t own a home, buy a reliable car, start their dream business, or even choose a healthy partnership.
Money as a Magnifier: What We Can Learn About Ourselves
Know this: money is not inherently the problem. The problem is how we approach money, how we align ourselves with its energy, and the how we attach our worth to money.
Here’s the thing……
MONEY IS A MAGNIFIER. It will put all of the unresolved issues in your money tissues under a magnifying glass for you to bring awareness to (and shift) if you so choose.
But a magnifying glass doesn’t just enlarge what is being viewed, it also allows us to see the inner workings more clearly. It gives us a better look into the finer details and reminds us of the connectedness of all things. Doing this gives us a broader perspective.
Limiting beliefs about money often mirror the limiting beliefs about ourselves.
Instead of feeling irritated, dismayed or left out because you’ve decided you can’t (and won’t) be able to afford what you desire, ask yourself: “What do I need to shift in order to create xxx?” And then, be prepared to get out of your own way!
How to Shift the Paradigm of Your Money Story
If you wish to shift your mentality around money…if you wish to create a permanent wealthy mindset..if you wish to welcome in the freedom that comes from embracing it as a reciprocal energy exchange… then start by having a really honest conversation with money.
I recommend first taking a few minutes to quietly center yourself and write down a list of words that you associate with money, finances, or wealth. Dont think too hard; just jot down any words or phrases that come to your mind. When you are done, see if you can identify any themes that may have come up.
Then comes the juicy part! Pretend you have invited money over for dinner…offer it a seat, a nice glass of wine, and let the discussion begin. Put on your listener ears and take note of what transpires.
- What are you here to teach me?
- What beliefs have I assigned to you (positive and negative)?
- What actions do I need to take to align myself more with abundance mentality?
- How can I approach you with less fear and shame?
- What do I believe to be true about money/wealth/abundance?
- What are some of my earliest memories of money that shaped me?
- Did I inherit generational/unconscious ideas about money? Am I ready to break them?
- What conflicting beliefs do I have about money that are potentially keeping me from happiness and success?
From this conversation, you should be able to identify some potential surprising mindsets around money. Some may be easy for you to tackle, as even just bringing awareness to certain beliefs is the first step in eliminating them (or validating them if they are positive).
