A topic I rarely speak about, but am highly interested in: money. Working on your money mindset unpacks your deepest beliefs around self-worth, inner values and lack. How you receive, treat and manage your money can say a lot about your priorities and values.
No other subject can create such a strong emotionally charged reaction than money. Why not normalize the subject, instead of approaching it with secrecy, envy or shame. Like you have probably heard, many times before, money is in essence neutral in energy. We are the ones who give it so much power. However, money is what we make of it. We feel shameful about it, then it will be a shameful experience of never having it. We feel grateful about it, then gratitude will be our experience of enjoying what we have. You get the picture.
Over the years I have worked on the way I interact with money. Especially since becoming an entrepreneur, I had to face many of my limiting beliefs. Let’s put it this way: it’s still a journey and I am still learning to not only study the subject but also implement what I am learning to create healthy habits that are empowering for myself as an individual. We can all create our own narrative around what our definition of abundance is. Which can look very different for everyone.
Since my healing journey around money began, I did my fair share of research in 1-line style (my Human Design profile number known as the Archetype of the Researcher and Investigator). Here are my favorite resources on the emotionally charged subject of money that I have found interesting, practical, inspiring and helpful.
Now to the goods.
