Every time I spend money, more money comes to me.
This thought came to my mind the other day and I realised that it is actually true for me now.
The more I believe this, the more it happens and the more relaxed I become around money.
The more relaxed you are, the more money can flow to you.
So then both spending money and giving money to others becomes a real joy, because there is no FEAR!
The challenge is that many people have some learned negative beliefs around money which equate to money is somehow bad or dirty which means that subconsciously, they would feel bad or dirty if they had too much money.
This then results in challenges around money. Do any of these ring true for you:
· Do you feel uncomfortable asking for money for your services?
· Do you undercharge?
· Do you discount?
· Do you over-service?
· If a client owes you money, do you put off collecting it?
· Do you think that people who have a lot of money are bad in some way?
· Do you feel uncomfortable about money in general?
· Do you have any other negative thoughts and beliefs around money?
If so, write them down and then challenge them!
Whatever you think on an on-going basis, providing you have no resistance to believing it, becomes your experience.
You may have negative beliefs that you have no difficulty in believing and they then become the truth for you.
So it’s very important to cultivate positive beliefs, not just around money, although in this blog, I’m focusing on money.
I am sure that I was fed many negative beliefs around money when I was a child, particularly that old adage “Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees”.
This meant that I felt (notice the past tense), that there was something unsavoury about it or something which evoked fear.
Not anymore though. I feel that the more I earn, the more good I can do in the world.
To help you shift your perception, if that is something you want to or in fact need to do, just consider the following two statements:
1. Money is not evil. After all, it can be used either for good or for bad can’t it?
2. Money is just energy which you can exchange for goods and services. Take the emotion out of it.
That’s it really. So if you are not charging your true worth, just one of the areas you need to examine is your beliefs around money.
