A Recap On Limiting Money Beliefs...Letting Them Go Now

A few weeks ago I listened to Katherine Woodward’s online event Calling in The One: How to Identify and Release Your Hidden Barriers to Love & Become Magnetic to Your Soulmate. Katherine discusses the blocks a great deal of us have regarding love and how it’s our beliefs about ourselves that keep us stuck and essentially co-creating the kind of relationships we don’t want. I started thinking a great deal about my core beliefs, not just related to love but all parts of my life. I began digging a bit deeper into my beliefs about money and my financial freedom. I often tell myself “I don’t have enough money” or “I don’t know how to make more money.” Some part of me believes these things at a core level.
Shining a spot light on these beliefs and thoughts is extremely powerful. It actually makes these beliefs lose some of their power. Have you ever been afraid to admit how you feel about a situation or a person? Then you allow yourself to say what you’re thinking/feeling aloud? It’s no longer that scary. The fear is strongest when you totally deny what you think, what you believe, and how you feel. There is a great deal of power in acceptance. By accepting, it doesn’t mean you have to stay where you are it actually allows you to harness your own power and make a positive energy shift. When I opened my eyes to my deep-down, soul-level beliefs I realized I can mold them into something brilliant. I can change them and so can you.
Once I realized how powerful all of this was I started working on several EFT scripts to help me with what I label “my abundance issues.” I am now aware of the things I’ve been doing to stay at a place where I only make just enough or less-than enough. None of us have to live an impoverished existence no matter what the circumstances may be. We all have this amazing ability to make dramatic shifts in our belief systems. By working with the universe, tapping, and visualizing in color anything is possible.
Some of you may not be familiar with EFT. EFT (tapping) stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT is a type of psychological acupressure that allows you to work through any traumas, negativity, and any thoughts or feelings you may have. It was developed from Chinese medicine, specifically acupuncture but without the needles! You lightly tap on various meridian points throughout the body. Meridians are a complex web of little energy highways running throughout the body. When we have traumatic experiences sometimes energy gets blocked in certain parts of the meridians. With tapping you can help get this energy moving again. It’s a very powerful healing tool. I am so grateful for being introduced to it. Thank you Nick and Jessica Ortner!
I created a tapping script (what you say while doing EFT) that you can use for money/financial issues. I always suggest using your own words because it's more meaningful the more authentic it is, but it helps to have something to follow along with when you’re first getting started. You can tap along the various points I've listed, or what feels most comfortable to you.
Take two deep breaths. The script will be centered on a fairly common feeling people have towards money “I never have enough money.” Say this statement and rate it on a scale from 0 to 10, 0 being not true at all and 10 being very true. For more guidance you can follow along with me in the following video.
I Never Have Enough Money Script

Chest/Collarbone: Even though I never have enough money and this is discouraging and disappointing, I love and accept myself. Even though I feel like there is never enough money, that’s okay I love and respect myself. I forgive myself for feeling like there is never enough money. I love and accept myself whether I have enough money or not.

Sternum area: Even though I often see others who have lots of money and I wonder why I don’t, that's ok. I choose to accept myself & where I am.

Top of ribs: I am broke most of the time. This is not what I want!

Underarm: I want to have lots of money.

Top of head: I want to live the life that I want. I want to have plenty of cash!

Eyebrow: I think I have to break my back to have an abundance of money.

Side of eye: It’s not okay for me to have lots of money.

Under eye: It’s okay for other people but not for me.

Pause a moment, take a deep breath and see where your number is. Has is dropped? Gone up?

Collarbone/Chest: Even though I don’t have lots of money and I can’t be successful because it seems just out of my reach. I’m open to a new possibility. Even though I've always struggled financially, I choose to be open to new ways of dealing with money. Even though this seems impossible, I’m open to a new possibility right now.

Wrist: Even though is seems other people don’t struggle as much as I do & I wonder why...

Thumb: Maybe I don’t have to always struggle, maybe I could do what they do.

Index finger: Probably not

Middle finger: I’m smart, why not?

Ring finger: Probably not though

Pinky: Maybe I could

Top of the head: I’m still not sure I can have more money

Eyebrow: I’m not sure if I can have all the things I want.

Side of eye: Don’t you have to break your back to have everything you want?

Under eye: I know I do

Nose: At least I think I do. I have to struggle to have more money.

Chin: Maybe I don’t. Maybe I do.

Chest: I’m open to a new way.

Sternum: I’m ready to shift my thinking and embrace a new life...

Ribs: What if I could make money without having to constantly struggle?

Underarm: What if I could have lots of money?

Head: I’m open to this possibility now. The universe is abundant!

Karate chop: Even though I can’t make more money because I don’t know how, I don’t have a strategy. I choose to love and accept myself. Even though I’m not sure how I will make more money, I choose to remember that the universe is abundant. I choose to remember that the universe has tons of resources just for me! Even though I have no idea how this will work, I choose to trust God and the universe to show me how to do this.

Collarbone: Even though I don’t know how, I choose to focus on abundance and leave the rest up to God/universe.

Sternum: I don’t know how to make lots of money

Ribs: I don’t have a plan

Underarm: I don’t know how

Head: I don’t know how to do this

Eyebrow: Maybe I could learn

Side of eye: But I don’t know how

Under eye: I’m open to learning how to have lots of money

Nose: I choose to be shown how to have an abundance of money

Chin: I’m open to learning how to have lots of money

Chest: I choose to allow the universe to show me. I allow the universe to show me right now.

If I have any thoughts or feelings that pop up while tapping I will often write them down. This can be something for you to focus on during another EFT session. There is a great deal of power in tapping with another person, someone you feel safe with so don't feel you have to do this alone.
