Money, Money, Money... something that we deal with every day, but it is a loaded topic, full of conditioned beliefs, and triggers waiting to jump out when we least suspect.
There are plenty of places we can go to get "Financial Advice", on what to do with our money, but what about uncovering our relationship with money and how we think about it?
Because it IS a relationship, and a complex one at that.
We all have different beliefs about money that are strongly imprinted on us from our parents, our upbringing, our culture, and the people we are around, regardless of our financial situation or upbringing. Until we are aware of these beliefs and how they affect us, they are shadows that lurk in our subconscious, holding you back from living in your full potential and living a life of abundance.
Does money stress you out? or cause conflict in your relationships? It's little wonder if it does, we each have such different approaches to our money and how we manage it.
In our Western Culture we are so focussed on the Bling-Bling-Hustle, but is that really what we are striving for? Abundance isn't just money, it's living in alignment and feeling joy, pleasure, and fulfilmentand, I don't think anyone can argue that all those things don't sound like a good time.
What are your beliefs around money?
It's likely that more than one of these will resonate with you, and then some others that I haven't mentioned.
That people that have money are bad, greedy, or selfish
That you don’t deserve to have money
It's bad to want to have money
The thing is that having money actually allows us to support ourselves and support others, if we choose to.
That you have to work hard to have money
If you aspire to have money you’re going to be stuck in an office 60 hours a week
That you can’t make money doing what you love, or that if you have a job you love, you have to be broke, or anyone who isn't is being bank rolled by someone, somewhere*
You can make money doing whatever you want, honestly. I took the leap of faith to leave the corporate world and step into work that is aligned with my soul, and it's going pretty well. When you're in alignment, you're excited about what you do, and excited about LIFE, and opportunities show up, more than you could imagine.
That spending over a certain amount on something is excessive
That we don't deserve to buy ourselves things
That we have to cling onto our money and save it all for the future
I like quality (hello Taurus in the 4th house), so I might buy things that some consider "expensive" but I buy less things that are quality, rather than lots of random stuff.. ya feel me?
Money is a relationship that we need to cultivate. It’s back and forth like a dialogue, we need to allow it to move, and come and go without clinging on. A relationship that is mindful, one that is supportive.
