Are you struggling financially? Does it seem like everything you do just isn’t enough to earn what you need? Or maybe your business isn’t hitting your target sales?
Money is one of the biggest sources of stress for people around the world. In the US alone, 52% of adults who struggle with their finances report that it has a negative impact on their overall mental health. And within this number, 29% say they worry about their finances on a daily basis.
If money isn’t coming in the way you want it to, or no matter how hard you work, you can’t seem to earn enough, you may be suffering from money blocks.
In this article, we’ll talk about what money blocks are, what you can do to release these blocks, and how to make a 2024 vision board to achieve financial freedom.
WHAT ARE MONEY BLOCKS?
Money blocks are also known as “limiting money beliefs.” They are patterns of thought that we have since childhood, which are ingrained in our subconscious programming. You may not be aware of these thought patterns, but they govern your attitudes towards money, preventing you from fully receiving true abundance in your life.
This can range from not being able to pay off your debts, not being able to save money, and blocking profits from your business.
Here are some of the most common limiting beliefs you may have about money:
- “I’m not good at handling money.”
- “I don’t know how to earn a large amount of money.”
- “I feel like I don’t deserve to be rich.”
- “I grew up poor, that's why I don’t know anything about money.”
- “I need money to be happy.”
- “I can’t have a good life because I don’t have money.”
- “I can’t afford anything.”
- “I can’t afford nice things.”
Money blocks exist because of two things: the environment you were raised in and the traumatic experiences you had with money.
If your parents always said “Money doesn't grow on trees,” or “We can’t afford that,” or “There’s never enough money,” you will grow up having a scarcity mindset.
Are these phrases and thought patterns familiar to you? If yes, then money blocks are preventing you from truly accepting prosperity and abundance in your life.
It’s time to identify these limiting beliefs and finally unblock them, so you can welcome true abundance. When you do, you get to finally live a life of comfort, wealth, and financial freedom.
HOW TO REMOVE YOUR MONEY BLOCKS AND FINALLY EXPERIENCE FINANCIAL FREEDOM
Before you start making your money goals, creating a wealth vision board, or creating a plan to earn more money, you need to remove your money blocks first.
You can’t visualize and meditate on wealth if your money blocks still exist. It’s time you do the work of removing your money blocks, and finally receive the wealth that is truly yours.
Here are 7 ways to remove money blocks:
IDENTIFY YOUR MONEY BLOCKS
The very first thing you need to do is identify and acknowledge your money blocks. Take a piece of paper or journal and write down your attitudes towards money. Do you find it easy to make money? Do you think it’s hard? Or do you think money is the root of all evil?
By identifying and acknowledging you have limiting beliefs about money, you can take the necessary steps to address them.
DO THE INNER WORK
Doing inner work means accepting your money blocks and making the necessary changes to unblock them.
Here are some ways you can directly change your negative mindset about money:
Tapping is also known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. It helps you overcome financial stress, boost confidence, and calm your body. It is the exercise of literally tapping parts of your body, specifically acupoints on the face and neck, which leads to a calming and relaxing state.
Studies have shown that EFT can help you shift from a stressed state to having a calm nervous system in just minutes.
EFT is able to help you remove your money blocks by minimizing financial stress, but also reducing anxiety and fears you may have about your finances. By bringing your body into a calming state, you can begin to let go of your financial fears.
A licensed hypnotist can also help you transform your negative mindset, recharge your money-block programming, and give your beliefs a clean slate. It can help remove trauma you may have experienced about money as well as deprogram a scarcity mindset developed from childhood.
Simply meditating every day about your money blocks can also help you remove them. You can visualize a physical block being removed in front of you, and what’s on the other side is large amounts of money that will never run out.
Visualize other scenarios of an actual object that is blocking abundance in front of you.
WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE
Words have power and the language you use when talking about finance can make the difference. Here is an example:
“I can’t go out tonight because I don’t have money to spend for dinner in a restaurant.”
Instead, you can say this:
“Going out tonight doesn’t align with what I want to do. Maybe some other time.”
Do you see the difference? The first statement is declaring to the Universe what you don’t have. The second statement is simply telling the Universe you will go out on another date, without implying a sense of lack.
Observe the words you’re using each time you talk about money and change any words of negation, lack, and desperation.
As everything is made of energy, you need to respect physical money. When placing cash in your wallet, try to arrange them according to the amount, don’t fold or crumple them, and make sure you don’t throw coins or money around. Don’t put change on a table and forget about it. Don’t crumple money and put it in your pocket.
Give it respect by putting it in your wallet nicely, keeping every penny, and making sure you place it in a clean, organized, and good wallet or purse.
TREAT MONEY LIKE A RIVER
If you grew up not having a lot of money and now you’re an adult and you have substantial money in the bank, you may have a tendency to keep it there. Yes, it’s a good thing to keep and save money, but if you are holding on to it too much that you keep it stored all the time, you’re telling the Universe that you fear losing your money.
Abraham Hicks talked about this when she said that we should treat money like a flowing river. If you keep it in your pocket, what happens? It gets stuck there. But if you treat it like a river, where you keep it flowing in and out of your life, money will continue to come freely.
Hicks said that whenever you spend money, it's like a river that goes forward, but because you treat it as such, money will always come flowing through you.
So spend a little here and there, be charitable, help those in need, and keep it flowing, because just like a river, water will always come flowing towards you.
Create a money journal without writing down your expenses. Use this journal to keep track of all the money you’re receiving. Don’t use it as a budgeting or expense tracker guide but as a way to feel good about money.
No matter how little, write down any amount that’s coming in. This can help you become more grateful for what you have, rather than always looking at what you don't have.
We are often so consumed with thinking about wanting more that we fail to realize and acknowledge the actual blessings that we’re receiving on a daily basis.
PRACTICE THE WALLET EXERCISE
The Wallet Exercise or Wallet Game is an idea that comes from Abraham Hicks. The exercise tells you to put $100 in your wallet but don’t spend it, just keep it there at all times.
Whenever you go out and want to splurge on something, instead of thinking you can’t afford it, think about the $100 in your wallet and how good it feels knowing you can buy it if you really want to.
The key is not to use the $100 but knowing that you have the money instantly puts you in a positive and abundant mindset.
Practice these tips on removing money blocks to help you reprogram the limiting beliefs that have kept you from fully living your life in financial abundance.
