How to Have a Healthy Relationship With Money Emotionally
Money is one of the most essential tools in our lives, yet it’s also one of the most complex. It can be a source of joy and abundance or stress and anxiety. So how we relate to money is crucial to having a healthy relationship.
We often think of money as a necessary evil. We need it to pay our bills, but we hate to think about how much we have to work for it. Yet, ironically, the more we focus on money and try to hold on to it, the less we seem to have. The key is to learn to let go of your attachment to money and trust that the universe will provide what you need.
Improving Your Relationship With Money Is More Than Income.
If money could speak, it would say, “Give me some love, will ya?” Money needs love because it’s a living thing in its own right; just like people, it’s energy. Energy to be used as a tool. Everyone knows that people in a relationship give each other love. They say that money is the root of all evil. No matter what, even if you have a relationship with a lot of money, it won’t always be a healthy relationship. If this is the case, it is important to realize what is wrong with the relationship as soon as possible. It might be that you’re spending too much money. It might also mean you’re not spending enough and want more. Either way, think of ways to improve the relationship and get it back on track.
If you want more money, you must change how you think about it. Most of us view money as something scarce, which causes us stress and anxiety. Instead, view money as abundant energy available for everyone. When you change your mindset this way, you will start attracting more money into your life without even trying.
So how do you go about changing your mindset?
Transforming Mindset With Your Relationship With Money Here are a few tips:
Get clear about what you want
Take time to journal what kind of financial situation would make you happy. For example, would you like to be debt free? Have a certain amount in savings? Own a home? Be able to travel regularly? Once you know exactly what you want, it will be easier for the universe to deliver it.
Give thanks for what you have.
Even if your current financial situation isn’t ideal, find things to be grateful for. For example, are you blessed with good health? And happy relationships? A job that supports your lifestyle? Once you appreciate all the good things in your life, abundance will flow in all directions.
Unhappy people are more likely to spend money on things that bring quick and short-lived happiness, like material goods. While nice things get pleasure, they are not necessary for an enjoyable life. Not only can self-love make you happier, but it can make you feel more self-confident and in tune with the world around you, and more confident. All of these can make you more valuable to your company or business and as a person.
Treat money with respect.
Remember that money is just energy, and treat it accordingly. Don’t spend frivolously or become obsessed with acquiring more and more wealth. When you approach money with reverence and appreciation, it will help support your dreams and goals.
- Understand the difference between having money and being rich
- Realize that money is just a tool to help you achieve your goals
- Appreciate the things you already have rather than constantly wanting more
- Let go of your need for control and trust that the universe will provide for you
- Give generously without expecting anything in return (don’t guilt give!)
- Money is just a tool – it has no power of its own
- When you’re attached to money, you’re attached to the outcomes it can bring you.
- Be open to all the possibilities that life has to offer
- You’ll find that when you’re not so focused on making money, you’ll make more of it
- Remember that the only thing you can control in life is your thoughts and actions
- Practice being grateful for what you have, even if it’s not a lot
You are building a healthier relationship with your finances.
I don’t believe you have lots of money is something to feel shame or guilt towards. That is another limited attachment. It serves no one. I believe in detaching money as a means of defining who we are and money holding us on a leash as if it controls every move. It’s just a tool, no different than toilet paper. I don’t know about you, but toilet paper is valuable. The more we have, the more we can experience, the more we can give, and the more impact we can have mentally, emotionally, and psychically on people.
I don’t think the wealthy should not “buy things,” nor do I think it’s ok to share with others and tell them it’s wasteful. But that’s another lack of mindset, speaking—programmed limiting beliefs that will keep you cycling and staying right where you are. It’s simply learning how to live a balanced life, not one of the extremes.
Relationships with money can be complicated by limiting beliefs.
Humans are all born with a natural sense of limitation. Regardless of how far we come from the cavemen, we still have these limiting beliefs that hold us back from our true potential. But to rise above the matrix of limitation, we need to understand the connection between money and limiting beliefs. By understanding this connection, you will be able to evolve yourself into a higher consciousness and unleash the power that is your birthright.
Limiting beliefs are the most common reasons why people aren’t prosperous. People think they don’t have enough money, aren’t good enough, or have been dealt an unlucky hand. However, your beliefs limit you from doing just about anything. You have to replace those beliefs with positive affirmations that would make you believe you can prosper and have everything you could ever want. After all, there is enough abundance in the world for everybody to have the things they want.
Realistically for most saying, affirmations are not enough. They are an excellent exercise for sustaining a strong emotional relationship with money. However, it would help if you found where your beliefs originate. Limiting beliefs often are connected to childhood trauma or just simple programming from what you witnessed as a child.
Money is a tool
There are people in this world that will always have more money than others. It doesn’t make them bad people, and it doesn’t make others good people. We’re all just energy vibrating at different levels. What we do with our money is what counts. How we share it, what we spend it on, and where we focus our attention to.
If you have money and are reading this, think about ways to help others with your money. Ways to make a lasting difference in their lives, not just a “band-aid” fix. It’s easy to throw money at a problem and think it will disappear. But most of the time, it doesn’t.
It’s not about spending lots of money on things that don’t matter. Instead, it’s about using your money to benefit yourself, those around you, and future generations. That’s what genuine wealth is all about.
Money can be challenging to talk about, especially regarding our personal feelings. There are numerous ways to look at it, and many people are in a lot of pain around it. Many people don’t feel deserving of it, don’t know how to handle it, or don’t know what to do with it. Money is something that many struggles with. It can bring up emotions such as excitement, sadness, and anger. Remember to treat money like a tool, and that’s it.
It is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself. The Universe will always give us what we give to ourselves first. We are all worthy no matter what we’ve been told. Self-love is incredibly healing and powerful because when we love ourselves, we become less needy and more open to receiving love from others, allowing for a more fulfilling, abundant, and happy life.
