The Psychology of Money

psychmoney

As I am evolving my Holistic Body Love business as a Mindset Coach, Body Love is more than just your relationship with food, body image, and how you speak to yourself…Body Love includes your Relationship with Money.

So I’m shifting today’s focus on your Money Mindset and where it’s at right now.

When you think about Money, what immediately comes up for you? Perhaps some of the following statements:

I don’t have enough.

I can’t afford it.

I am scared of it.

I don’t understand it.

Money is dirty.

Money is evil.

Only greedy (or bad, or evil, insert negative description here) people have money.

If you have lots of money, it means you are selfish.

I wish I had more money.

It would be great if I had a lot of it!

What are your Money Behaviours?

Do you go into your relationship with money blindly? Meaning you don’t know how much money you have in your account and you keep spending? You are not aware of how much debt you may have, and yet you keep burying your head in the sand out of fear?

Do you hoard your money?

Do you live pay check to pay check?

Do you hide how much money you spend, make, save, etc. from others (i.e., family members, spouse) so they are left in the dark?

Do you spend mindlessly everyday/often on things such as coffee, fast food, cigarettes, unused memberships (such as to a gym) and then complain about not having enough money?

How Money Conscious Are you? 

Do you know exactly where you put your money each month?

Do you consciously budget your money?

Do you save your money?

Do you invest your money?

If you are common-law, married or in a romantic relationship, how do you discuss money with your partner?

Where Did You Learn your Money Beliefs from? 

Do they parallel that of your parents?

Many of us may have a scarcity mindset rather than abundant mindset when it comes to Money.

Exercise to move towards Abundance and Empowerment Mindset with Money:

  1. Get yourself calm first (because many of you will be anxious) by throwing on a guided meditation to help you feel more grounded. Check out apps like Headspace or Buddify.
    • For extra support, I highly recommend you use Young Living Essential Oils to support you by topically applying it on the areas that feel the most stress and tension in your body when you think about money (such as temples, shoulders, neck, back) as well as bottom of feet and/or inside wrists. I suggest one of the following: Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calm, or Frankincense to help you feel more grounded. To order, you can  start a free Young Living account here  to get 24% off retail price! 

2. Next, I invite you to pull out your journal and write down the answers to the questions above so that you can consciously start understanding where you’re at. This is not about judging or shaming yourself! Beaware of that part of you that starts to do that and keep breathing in the oil(s) to help your limbic brain (emotional brain) and nervous system remain as calm as possible.

3. Create a list of professional people who could support you such as a financial planner, accountant, money mentor or coach and connect with them to have them help you feel more empowered with knowing how to manage your money.

Stay tuned for a follow up post in how to replace scarcity mindset with abundant mindset!

Let me know how you did, I would love to hear!
