After 25 years of being a Psychotherapist and teacher of Energy Manifestation, and doing Psycho-Spiritual work myself for the entire journey, I like tosynthesize information and let down the CORE ISSUES FAST !
Please note that I am a Teacher of Perennial Philosophy. This means that I teach the “river of Truth” that runs beneath all Spiritual Traditions. I draw from many sources, but my core reference points are: the four thousand Year Old Yogic teachings – The Vedas and the work of Carl Jung.
TOP 3 MONEY BLOCKS:
BLOCK #1: FAMILY MONEY PROGRAMMING- FMP (YES! I am officially coining the term FMP- lawyer will be alerted! LOL)
Most of our families did NOT teach us about Wealth Consciousness or Abundance. In fact, in most families there is either outright distain for money talk or it is not discussed. Often there are insidious feelings of shame, guilt, struggle and deprivation around the topic of money. In many families, there was little or NO talk about Money, Money Management and Building Wealth. Whether we like it or not, Money is here to stay. We must develop the conversation about Money in order to heal our faulty relationship with Money and Abundance.
We can learn to have a healthy RELATIONSHIP with Money but we must first clearly identify our FAMILY MONEY PROGRAMMING (FMP).
There are all sorts of toxic and nonsensical FAMILY MONEY PROGRAMMING such as:
- You must struggle to earn money
- Wealth is only for Movie Stars or Pop Stars
- Intellectuals do not care about Money, we care only about ideas
- People will be jealous of you if you have too much
- Talking about Money is tacky and distasteful
- We buy things for people to express our Love
- All you need is Love
- Artists do not need money
- People who have money are bullies and unsavory
Do any of these massages sound familiar?
You may have tried affirmations, switching careers, yoga, meditation etc, etc, and NOTHING has worked. This is because the first step is knowing your FMP and rooting it out.
Whether you are aware of your FMP or not, it is vital that you become of aware of it ASAP! Once you are aware of it you may choose to work it out DIY using your own methods or perhaps you may choose to work with a trained Psychotherapist or Money Coach to help you heal your FMP once and for all!
Ifare considering hiring a Money Coach (who is also a Psychotherapist) I offer a single Intensive Coaching Session (Insta Magnetize) whereby we identify your core FMP with strategies to work on it. This is a “jump start” session but it is very powerful.
BLOCK #2: NOT FEELING WORTHY – (low self esteem)
Not everyone is treated with disrespect and/or abuse but most of us have feelings of unworthiness at least at some time in our lives. In fact, many of my Psychotherapy clients had loving parents who unwittingly did not help their children to develop health Self Worth/Self Esteem.
My Spiritual teachers have taught me that none of us are born with an “abundance” of Self Worth/Self Esteem and we must build this up over our lifetime/lifetimes. It is part of the process of Evolving as a human being.
Therefore, if you do not Consciously work on your feelings of Deserving and Worthiness you will NOT be able to receive and abundance of Money and Wealth. Even if you do find a way, you will not be happy with your manifestations.
In my 20s I had very, very low self esteem and suffered from severe Panic Disorder and until I was able to get Spiritual and Professional help I was unable to MAGNETIZE MONEY and positive opportunities into my life. I was blessed with a powerful “Spiritual Download” at varioustimes in my life and each time I raised my Self Worth and Self Esteem by taking loving action towards myself and setting clear boundaries around toxic situations. Simple put, I just said “NO” to crumbs and took great care of myself. By age 33, my entire life changed and I was able to MAGNETIZE all sorts of Abundance to myself.
YOU CAN DO THIS TOO!
Please note that self indulgent Narcissism is not the same as building Self Worth and Self Love. Narcissists lack EMPATHY for others and if you truly love and take care of yourself you will not hurt anyone else along the way.
On the ENERGY PLANE small actions and intentions are powerful!
Here are somethings that you can do right now:
- Set boundaries with your time – do NOT accept invitations that do not feed your Soul or benefit you unless you areconsciously choosing to do Charity work.
- Take the time to get to know yourself – meditate, journal and engage in at least a few months of Psychotherapy.
- Take part in self-care activities such as: exercise, yoga, nature, hobbies, cooking and music.
BLOCK #3: FEAR OF SUCCESS
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us” Marianne Williamson
Marianne, hit the nail on the head with this one.
Despite our CONSCIOUS desire to be successful, to earn more money and to build wealth many of us are afraid of our true Power.
We are taught to “play small” and not to take up“too much room”.
I must keep it real here and say that some of the fear is not just related to fear of our LIGHT, for some of us it is also just as related to fear of RESPONSBILITY!
As I work with clients and students I can see that playing “large” does lead to all sorts of RESPONSIBILITIES such as keeping up with clients, more time commitments and the responsibilitiesof learning to Manage Wealth. Some people are simply notyet emotionally up to this task but it is VERY important to be honest with yourself. It is okay to live“smaller life” if it makes your Soul happy. Not everyone is meant to be a Beyonce.
If in your heart and Soul you know you are “afraid of Success” simply because owning your LIGHT is scary…well then, now it is the time to do the work to root it out this block.
THE UNIVERSE HAS GIFTED YOU AND IT IS BIRTH RIGHT TO USE ALL OF YOUR GIFTS ON THIS EARTH!
