When people tell me their limiting beliefs about money, I’m often surprised at the variety of them. This is one of those really unique and personal things that people pick up from the way they were raised, or from assumptions they made along their journey.
Money is so central to living in modern society, so there are a million beliefs to have about it (sort of like the “Eskimos have 14 words for snow” thing).
Hypnosis can help you get rid of your limiting money beliefs - try it.
If we boil them down, though, limiting money beliefs land somewhere in these categories:
- I’m not worthy of wealth (Root Cause: self-esteem)
- I’m not good with money (Root Cause: belief you’re somehow supposed to know about saving money, spending, earning, etc. already)
- Wealth is something other people have (Root Cause: identity based in comparison to others)
- I’m stuck being poor (Root Cause(s): depression, self-sabotage, or lack of ambition)
So with all these possible causes, and this huge variety of how these limiting beliefs show up in people’s lives, how is hypnosis supposed to help change your beliefs about money?
This is where the science of belief-change comes in.
When properly triggered to open channels of creativity, intuition, and lateral / relational thinking, your brain can generate entirely new realities. We do this all the time when we’re pretending (like the last time you pictured what you’d do if you win the lottery).
Take that same freedom and creativity that you get from pretending, couple it with proper hypnotic suggestion language, and then use a different set of hypnosis processes to install and secure the new creative beliefs... and voila!
New belief system about money.
- Now, are these belief systems created immediately from listening to a hypnosis audio one time?
- Does the money start pouring in because you flipped a switch in your brain?
The answer is... not usually, though there have been some really cool experiences where it has happened, and the scientist side of me wants to call those coincidence while the deeper side of me says it’s synchronicity of a more profound sort.
The result that we do see consistently is that people start making money decisions that are rooted in truth and empowerment (even though they used to sabotage their finances by making emotionally unstable money decisions).
Also, people notice that money doesn’t hold that emotional power over them that it used to. Somehow, money becomes a more mellow thing... a mellow thing that I have ownership of... and that I’ve got a calm, hopeful feeling about.
People who feel this way about money make better decisions. Over time, better decisions mean more money. They start thinking like millionaires. It’s that simple.
If you’ve been struggling with limiting beliefs about money, we’d love to hear from you.
