Beliefs about Money
Release subconscious self-sabotage
By Amanda Collins
When I was a teenager, in order for me to fit in with the crowd I was hanging around with, I had to pretend that I did not have as much abundance in my life as I did. I felt shame and guilt for my good fortune, so I pretended not to go to the good school that I did and hid the truth that my family had as much money as they did.
By the time I reached my early thirties, I was ready to change. I meditated and journaled about my beliefs around money and realised that I was still carrying this shame-filled, negative energy. I could not believe, after so many years, I was still holding on to these unconscious beliefs. Just becoming aware of these shame-based beliefs, shifted them. I felt compassion for my teenage self for dimming my light back then. At that moment, I released the old energy and created a new paradigm for myself.
Having my own family has also helped me to shift that energy. In the past, just having enough to cover expenses was fine. However, now that I have children, I give myself permission to play a bigger role and have unlimited potential. And the universe has met me right there.
Money is just another form of energy, and because giving and receiving are equally important, holding onto money for reasons such as fear of losing it blocks the inflow as well as the outflow. Every time you confront negative patterns or old beliefs which no longer serve you, you are making a breakthrough and the universe will meet you. When you become conscious of any difficult area of your life—be it eating, your environment, how you speak, think, or play out old stories—you shine a light on an unconscious belief and that light takes away its dark power.
Perhaps your money blocks were created in childhood when you heard messages from parents, teachers, friends, or the larger society which shaped your unconscious beliefs and your feelings about what you deserve.
