Do you feel like you just can’t seem to get anywhere with your finances? Do you feel that you should be looking at it, putting more money away, or talking to a finance professional – but life just keeps getting in the way?

Not being able to find the time and space in your life to develop a relationship with your money could be the sign that you have an emotional block standing in your way.

Money can bring up a lot of “stuff” because we tend to have beliefs around it that can cause fear, anxiety, and stress. And so ignoring it can seem like a good solution.

However, the more you ignore it, the more time you are letting pass by when you could be putting your money to work for you and you can make intentional changes to your situation while you still have time.

So, if you feel stuck, let’s first find out why so you can then clear the blocks. Awareness is the first step to being on your way to want to make changes. Without awareness, we assume things are worse or harder than they actually are.

Once you have awareness, you might be surprised to find that it’s not so scary and it doesn’t have to be so hard. From there, you can tap into a sense of empowerment to develop your relationship with your money.

I’m sure you’ve heard before that our thoughts create our reality. What this means is that we attract into our lives what we focus on. So, see what you’re attracting into your life.

Write down all the words that come to mind, as soon as you hear the word “money.”
Be honest, and write exactly what comes to mind. Then, put these words into two columns – scarcity and abundance. It should be fairly obvious to know which words are scarcity/fear-based and which are abundance/love-based.

Which column has more terms? If you have a scarcity-based mindset, ask yourself if this reflects your current reality. And if you have an abundance-based mindset, can you see that there is flow and abundance in your life?
I would love to hear from you to learn where your mindset has been when it comes to money. Please schedule a time with me so I can help you either shift out of your scarcity mindset or leverage your abundance mindset.

Next month, we’ll look at how to clear the blocks, but this month is all about the first step: awareness. This is the point where everything started changing for me. To learn more about my story and how I help my clients achieve financial well-being, visit my website at www.annnealinc.com.
