Limiting beliefs about money may hold you back from making different choices in life.
Have you been told that you’re not good with numbers, so you don’t even try to manage your money?
Have you ever ditched your dream job because you feel that it’s not right to be rich when other people are so poor?
Have you ever wanted to buy those pretty shoes that you have been eyeing, but you just didn’t, because you tried to save money as money is a limited resource?
You see, these limiting beliefs about money keep you from seeing different opportunities and keep you stuck focusing on the negative aspects of any circumstances.
The good news is that we can identify those limiting beliefs and let them go!
Today, I’m about to show you how to identify those limiting beliefs and heal your relationship with money.
Limiting Beliefs About Money
Limiting beliefs about money are REALLY common in our society and these are the reason why so many people are not as successful as they want to be.
These limiting beliefs cause you to self-sabotage, play small, feel insecure, have a negative mindset, and be careless about your success and happiness.
“But, Adelia, where do limiting beliefs come from?”
All the things your mother and father and society said about money became your money story. And it became your truths especially if you decided that you don’t want to be like your parents. Say what!?
Yes. Because the mind works in pictures and the subconscious mind doesn’t understand the words “don’t”.
If you don’t believe me, try NOT to picture this:
Don’t think of these delicious sweet treats with the fluffy raspberry filling sandwiched between two chocolate cookies. Don’t picture these perfect raspberry whoopie pies coming out of the oven and the amazing smells wafting from the kitchen. Don’t even imagine sprinkle them with icing sugar.
You thought of those sweet treats, didn’t you? That’s how our minds work.
And whatever you hold in mind, it shapes your reality.

If those limiting beliefs sound familiar to you, just know that it is just a story you keep telling yourself.
And you can always let go of the story and the identification of staying broke.
You just need to be honest with yourself. Don’t attempt to filter them as positive or negative because it’s just a story. It’s just your mind’s entertainment. So you don’t need to believe them.
I mean, have you ever thought that you’ll never be wealthy? Have you ever felt sorry for yourself that you’ll never have enough money to have a nice house or you think that your friends will treat you differently if you have money?
So check, is it actually true or it’s just a story sponsored by the mind?
Sometimes, these limiting beliefs about money came from our parents. So check again, were your parents wealthy? If they weren’t, then they’re not a reliable source of information.
When you’re aware that it’s just a broken record in your mind which doesn’t serve your highest and best good, you can always let them go.
“But, Adelia, how do I do that?”
If you decide to do that, you can “let go” of years of mental programs and accumulated feelings in just seconds.
If you’re not sure how to let go, keep reading. I’ll provide you with the best solution at the end of this post.
Have you ever thought about money being an energy? It is.
You see, whether you realize it or not, your thoughts are energy. Your beliefs around money create your world, define your actions, and shape your reality.
Think about it. If you FEEL abundant, then you act abundantly.
If you feel like you are lacking, then you act like you are lacking.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
We treat money like it’s solid and separate from us. Yet, money is really just part of the one energy we all are. As we tap into this one energy, we discover that money and ourselves are not separate from this one living force that unites, enlivens, and illuminates all.
