What is your money story?
As the holiday season looms, yes can you believe the Christmas decorations are going to start showing up and those dreaded entities called Christmas carols will take over your super mind!!
If you have been beginning to amp up the pressures around making, having, spending money, please use the tools especially “who does it belong to?” and know you will always have enough.
Sometimes we don’t make the money we say we want for the most insidious, disempowering reasons. Most recently I’ve come across …
… a single mompreneur who was concerned that, if she were successful, she might have to give up or even pay child support.
… a coach who didn’t want to grow her business because she might have to give up her disability payments.
… a very busy part-time healer who didn’t want to give up her day job so that she could grow her business, because of the health insurance her job offered her.
… a widowed entrepreneur who didn’t want to increase her income because she would have to give up her husband’s social security benefits.
All of these people were more or less consciously limiting their income … because their lack came with a perceived “benefit.”
Sometimes the “benefits” of financial struggle are less obvious.
Sometimes our financial situation gets us attention. Our parents worry about us. Our friends try to help us out.
Sometimes our financial situation provides entertainment for our minds. Without money to worry about, what would we think about all day?
Sometimes our financial situation provides us with opportunity to bond with others. After all, everyone complains about money, right? If we had no money concerns, what would we talk about with our friends, our family members?
Sometimes our financial situation provides us with an adrenaline rush. We let our bank accounts dwindle, then go into extreme fear and pull out all the stops to create income. We feel the triumph of victory. And then we rinse and repeat. What a rush!
Financial struggle can also get us special treatment. I have people email me on a weekly basis because they feel their financial situation entitles them to discounts on my products and services.
So ask yourself … what do you love about lack and having trauma and drama with money ?
More importantly, who would you have to be without it?
Leave your comment, share your thoughts!
Until next time have a great, abundant, happy life and body
Ease and gratitude
