Understanding the root of your money story is key to healing your money story problems. Here are 4 common reasons why you’re not creating the life you desire.
What’s your money story? Here are 4 common reasons why you’re holding yourself back and hiding behind not having enough money as the reason for not creating the life you desire.
For years, I have heard from thousands of souls about how they don’t have the money to invest in their growth, follow their dreams, and create optimum health.
The pain that comes up for them is quite intense and can often create veils of illusion from seeing the truth of what is really going on at the root of their money story. As long as they are stuck in this pain, and continue focusing on what isn’t working, they continue to create more of what they don’t want (since what we focus on always expands).
The truth is that money is NOT holding them back from creating that which they desire. They are holding themselves back (on some level of consciousness). Money just becomes a palatable reason.
In addition, they are using the same methods to heal their money story, and the same mindset that created the issue, cannot be the same mindset that solves the issue.
Therefore, they continue spinning in circles, feeling like a hamster on a wheel, leading to feelings of hopelessness, frustration, confusion, and much more. As you can imagine, it makes it challenging to create a new reality while spinning in this energy.
Can you relate to what I’ve shared so far? If so, let’s go back to the truth that I shared above – that it is not money holding you back, it’s actually you putting the brakes on (and the reasons can be infinite).
How To Identify The Root Of Your Money Story
So, why are you holding yourself back and hiding behind not having enough money as the reason? Although the reasons are varied, here are the 4 common reasons that I have uncovered in working with souls over the years:
1. Fear of Personal Power
Many of us do not know how to manage our energy and manage our authentic power, so rather than embracing our light, we retreat from it because we don’t consciously understand it, only to experience sustained feelings of being disempowered and disconnected.
When we learn how to celebrate our greatness and manage our infinite light and expansiveness, it actually becomes a joy rather than a burden. If this resonates for you, what is it costing you to fear your own divinity?
2. Fear of Having It All
Do you suffer from the “what will other’s think” syndrome? If so, this may be the pain point in your money story. What is the price you’ve paid in the past when others have perceived you as having it all? How safe do you feel when life is going well?
How often do you find yourself dulling your light and creating “problems” in order to make others feel more comfortable and to “normalize” yourself? More importantly, what is the price that you have paid (and are currently paying) to stay locked in this fear?
3. Fear of Leaving the Tribe Behind
How often do you make decisions based on what your family and/or friends expect from you? How often do you find yourself putting your life on hold, suppressing your dreams, and playing small because you’re afraid of disappointing others by moving on?
It doesn’t have to be all or nothing! You can still remain energetically connected to others if you choose, while still soaring in your own life. You are not abandoning or rejecting others when you live your life to it’s fullest, you are actually providing others with a model of how they can live a fearless and full life if they so choose.
If you are waiting for others to give you permission to move on while they stay behind, you are likely going to be waiting for a long time. Can you live with that? More importantly, what is it costing you to waiting for the green light?
4. Fear of Not Being Worthy Enough
If you have received messages that you are not worthy or not lovable, you very well may feel that you do not have a right to receive money. Since money is energy, it may also hit a deep chord inside of you that you are not worthy of anything divine.
The truth is that you are an extension of the creator, and as an infinite being of light have a divine entitlement to your divine birthrights, including wealth. Until this is healed within, you will continue to be disconnected from the energy of money.
In not hearing this, what is that costing you? So, when you are holding yourself back, but using money as the reason, you can see how it’s really NOT about the money, right?!
It’s actually about protecting yourself from the pain generated from one (or more) of these fears. And, until these fears are cleared, your unhealthy money story will continue.
The key for you right now is to identify which fear is most prominent, and find a new way of shifting the energy so that it no longer acts as a barrier to your fullest potential (and make sure you act on the healing now, as opposed to another thing that you’ll get to soon…:)
