These are just some of the terms used for money and I’m sure you’ve heard or spoken a few of them yourself.
Most of us have spent our lives worrying about, not having enough of, hating it, spending it, saving it, investing it, earning it, blowing it, giving it, receiving it, or hoarding it. It is only a tiny fraction of the world that was born with lots of it, but even they had to make sure they didn’t lose it!
For me, money often equated to stress because there wasn’t always enough. One thing I have learned is that it does follow movement and flowing energy. The ebb and flow of the mind and body will often show up externally, and the realm of money is not missed. Think “down” thoughts a lot – poof, watch your money go down (unless you have enough to hire someone to manage it for you).
What else can be expected but to form subconscious beliefs about money when wealth is not a reality in one’s family, when parents fight over it, when we go without because there isn’t enough of it and where society paints it with so many negative connotations (“money is the root of all evil”)? Well, those are places I’ve been and one of my missions is to finish re-constructing my relationship with money because there are many more perspectives/realities about it than my own and, frankly, I don’t believe we were born to be enslaved by it.
While what I grew up around affected my perception of money, the daily ebb and flow of emotions, particularly feelings of rejection, belonging, purpose and even Love, have a pronounced impact as well. Bruise those areas and it’s easy to knock the money block into a seized-up situation and, because we are unique individuals, each person will have their own list of emotional triggers.
I am an explorer, seeking out solutions that “stick” so that I have a holster of tools to use when I need to change a situation that isn’t working or move through places that need healing. Helping others to do the same feels natural and good as well. I did use EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) some time ago, but it didn’t work 100% for me because I found the necessity of using specific scripts restrictive. Well, it was a breath of fresh air to be invited to a series of interviews this week that focused on releasing money blocks. Pamela Bruner, an EFT practitioner, did a great job interviewing experts and I had a few AHA moments which, to me, is like an ever-patient Divine kiss on my cheek and a hearty hi-five! 🙂 In case you haven’t heard of EFT, it is a very simple system that works on energy meridians in the body (akin to accupuncture but without the needles). Sometimes, energy gets blocked/trapped along these lines and we don’t feel so great. That’s where unblocking and EFT comes in.
I feel a bit of a renaissance with the EFT practice because of how Pamela has adapted the practice to focus on the emotions and not so much on a script = Freedom! Taking care of what I am feeling by shifting old stuff makes room for new, good stuff and more energy! It feels great. Here are a couple of videos from Pamela. You may be pleasantly surprised if you give it a whirl, or two!
These are the tapping points…
Here is a way to work through whatever emotion(s) you would like to shift, without a script!
