Part 1: Identifying your limiting beliefs

Consider all the time we spend thinking about money. As a culture, we’re obsessed with it. A billion dollar industry preys on our shame, worry and fear. Most of us have purchased books and taken courses designed to teach us how to get rich, earn more and work less, manifest our desires, and create abundance, to use a few of the buzz words. We spend a lot of money, time and energy in pursuit of more money, more time and more energy.

With all this emphasis on our “lack” of money, how can we develop a healthy financial perspective? It’s easy to see money as the enemy; it seems bigger, more powerful than we are. We don’t get along with it, and we can’t get along without it.

Our relationship with money, like any relationship, is a fluid, ongoing process of growth and reflection. We can begin today to heal and expand our view of money, as well as reduce our stress and create the space needed for our abundance to flow.

It’s important, first, to identify your limiting beliefs.

“A fool and his money are soon parted.” “Money is the root of all evil.” “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “The best things in life are free.” “You can’t take it with you.” “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

Consider all the various and often conflicting beliefs there are about money. Regardless of your economic status as you were growing up, you absorbed values and beliefs that influenced your relationship with money, sometimes to your detriment. If you were taught that, “Money is the root of all evil,” for example, you may feel greedy and selfish if you have money and so unconsciously avoid earning or saving much or give it away when you have it. Conversely, you may have been taught that “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” and this scarcity meant you should hoard money, so you now experience continual anxiety about potential loss. Maybe, unconsciously, you believed you shouldn’t have more money than your parents or siblings do, and so you sabotage opportunities for greater wealth.

You may have “inherited” or adopted many conflicting and confusing beliefs that keep you stuck and out of abundant flow. As you begin to reflect, untangle and write down those early messages and beliefs about money, you’ll gradually heal and transform your financial experience. You can let go of the ideas that no longer serve you, and create a new, healthy belief system that supports a more prosperous life.

It takes time to identify limiting beliefs, so continue to take note of them as they emerge. If they seem especially difficult or overwhelming, seek the help of a qualified psychotherapist, health professional, life coach, or spiritual counselor. You don’t have to walk through this alone, and it’s often helpful to have someone guide you through your difficult emotions and memories.

How have you looked at your limiting beliefs in the past around money? Please share, your comments make a difference for us all.
