One of the best ways to overcome anxiety, stress, or worries about money is by listening to and learning from your subconscious feelings about money. Personalized positive statements of affirmation can be created to help you increase positive feelings about and experiences with money.
I love hearing from people who have questions about how to overcome inner blocks and barriers to prosperity, money, and finances, because addressing this area can immediately bring people to a place in which they can then feel better equipped to address other challenges that inevitably arise.
One reader wrote, “I have been struggling with my money inflow for quite some time now, I worked on it over the years and felt like I am getting closer and closer to a ‘breakthrough’ in this area. Still it is hasn’t happened yet. And I am suspecting that this is due to some subconscious belief or a blind spot. So my question goes something like that: What does it take to turn that around and have that breakthrough RIGHT NOW. Whatever I have to look at or have to do I am ready to face it, because I simply can’t go on like this anymore. I deserve abundance on all levels, and therefore also in the form of money, like everybody else does. NOW.”
When I read this question, I realized this question applies to more than just this one individual, and is actually a matter of great importance in many peoples’ lives. Lots of people notice stresses and strains from going through various life transitions, and when this happens, become suddenly aware that what had been working isn’t working any more.
I can appreciate how challenging it can feel to overcome money anxiety and energy blocks associated with money, which is a big part of the reason why I wrote my book, RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money. High Energy Money contains a self assessment section that you can read through, to help you find what may be negatively influencing how you feel. These feelings often can be felt in the form of physical sensations in your body, that you can start listening to and learning from.
The key idea is to locate the statements about money that might be in that book or that you might find that “trigger” or activate a tightening, clenching, or anxious feeling in your body. You can tell when this happens, so when it does, you can take each of the statements you’ve reacted to and flip them around to their opposite–so you will end up with positive affirmations that are uniquely tailored to addressing your specific needs and issues.
This list of affirmations is your “energy medicine” and something you will benefit most from reading out loud so you hear your own voice speaking, as you say each affirmation–and then FEEL how your body responds. Your body’s response is the key to indicating to you exactly how you are genuinely feeling, and this response is your indication of how helpful your affirmations actually are.
For example, if you had an issue with money such as:
“I doubt my ability to achieve financial goals”
You can tell that is an issue if you feel a physiological reaction to it, such as tightening of your chest, or clenched muscles. With this indicator, you can then create a personalized affirmation such as:
“I feel a sense of excitement setting financial goals.”
The very best affirmations will be ones that inspire truly good physiological feelings in your body when you hear yourself say them out loud, and they are effective for as long as you feel such good feelings as: excited anticipation, relaxation, and joy. When affirmations no longer seem to produce much of any reaction, that’s how you know it’s time to create new ones that give you a fresh sense of invigoration.
When creating and saying affirmations, I find it helpful to envision and imagine what is in keeping with your more affluent possible future self. For example, you can envision yourself at the airport in the capital of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, waiting to catch your next flight to somewhere wonderful!
