Your relationship with money is one of the oldest relationships you will have in your lifetime, so it stands to good reason that your money beliefs may well be outdated. In essence, many of our beliefs about money were formed in childhood before we even had any!
This is no problem if we were born into a household with a healthy relationship to money, but adult life can become a financial snake pit if you weren’t!
Many of our beliefs around money are inherited from our parents, or those in our immediate sphere during childhood. Our conscious, rational mind doesn’t develop until around the age of 9, up until this point our subconscious is in control. This means we are highly impressionable to all around us and we often take what is told to us and absorb it as the ‘truth’.
Consciously we all want to have a good relationship with money – as anything but that will often create a struggle – however what we are creating on a subconscious level in our lives can be a different experience on a day-to-day basis.
What we are subconsciously believing about money and it’s relationship to ourselves can play out in our lives as under-earning, chronic debting, addictive spending and seemingly being ‘allergic to money’.
Your subconscious mind is infinitely more powerful than your conscious. Even if we tell ourselves consciously that we are experiencing an easy cash flow – yet we are harbouring the conflicting belief that it is difficult to make money – it will be obstructed. Likewise, fear or any other uncomfortable emotion we might have about the effects of an easy cash flow could also hinder a positive outcome.
We may also be unconsciously running an old paradigm of monetary beliefs such as: ‘I don’t deserve money’, ‘money is the root of all evil’, ‘only selfish people have money’ and that somehow it is unkind, unfair or un-spiritual to have money.
Fortunately, because the subconscious mind believes and acts on what it is told, it can also be taught to release old beliefs and unhealthy emotions and move through resistance.
So it makes sense that if we are to have a good relationship with money we’d better get our subconscious mind on side, right?
By changing your subconscious beliefs about money you really can have a very different experience and I’ve witnessed this turnaround in many of my clients’ lives. Are you ready to release the old paradigm of inherited and restrictive beliefs about money and move into financial freedom?
