Abundance is a big issue for many people and being friends money is important if we want to live a comfortable life. Money itself is neutral – sounds obvious but how many times do you get angry and frustrated money? the thoughts and beliefs we have about it that cause the problems, so much of the time we put ‘our stuff’ on money and then blame money for it. If you don’t feel subconsciously that you deserve it, you can end up throwing it away through overspending, or underearning through not charging enough for your services or by not valuing your time by continually giving it away for free. If you were brought up with toxic beliefs around money (such as ‘money is the root of all evil’) you may find this is especially true for you. One of the easiest ways to find out what your subconscious beliefs about money are is to take a look at your bank balance and general credit and debit situation, what’s going on subconsciously is all too often reflected in your external life.
Here’s a simple yet very effective exercise I do with my clients to find out how they ‘see money’: close your eyes and make yourself comfortable – imagine ‘money’ is a person, trust the first thing that comes into your mind it may be someone you know, a character from your past or someone you don’t recognise – it doesn’t matter, simply trust what you get, your subconscious mind works very quickly, what matters here is to observe how you feel about this person? Angry, resentful, loving, respectful, fearful? Secondly how do you treat this person, what is your relationship like with them? Are you consistent and respectful or do you grab, reject, blame or push them away? If it’s the latter some work around your relationship with money would be beneficial, hypnosis is a wonderful way of changing your relationship with money so that you become fantastic friends, and if you want it to stick around, it’s essential that you do!
