The Universe is asking you to practice being who you said you desire to be.
An abundance mindset asserts that regardless of your financial pursuits, you will always have more than you need to meet your goals. Once you start embodying this mindset, then your financial life flows towards the energy you give it. If you focus on making and having more than enough money then that will be your outcome.
However, if you focus on lack and scarcity then that it be your sole experience as it relates to money.
Money needs direction
Most people know this as having a budget or a financial plan. From a practical standpoint, this makes complete sense. If you don't have a plan for your money then you'll never really shift your financial situation. However, the structure of this plan stems from the mindset that your money needs direction and a plan in order to meet your financial goals. So much of our lack of confidence with money comes from feeling out of control.*
Cut emotional spending
Emotional spending is a huge issue for many people because we are often driven by our emotions depending on what's happening in our lives. If life isn't moving according to our plan then we can feel powerless amidst chaos and turn to money in order to make things right. Money represents power, so it's no surprise that many use it to ease their pain and regain a sense of control when life throws a few curveballs.
Money is personal not relative
It's easy to compare your financial situation to those in your family, friends or coworkers. This can create feelings of lack, envy and despair concerning the state of your finances. Consider your personal financial goals for yourself, not as they should be in relationship to what you see in others.
You may see someone driving the latest car and feel jealousy, however, you may not see they are just barely scraping together the money to make the payments every month. Yet, as you compare your situation, it shifts your mindset from being appreciative for what you have to now being insecure about what you don't have.
Money is personal and best kept that way to avoid a negative shift that will inevitably affect your financial situation.
Change your money story
If you've ever said to yourself "I'll never be able to afford that!" or maintain the perspective that you will never be as successful as your wealthy friends then you've encountered a negative money script. Money scripts shape the mental tape we have about money.
They are commonly referred to as money blocks. Negative money scripts can have disastrous effects on your financial situation because what you think affects how you feel which then shapes the actions you take and eventually, the results you get. You can see why it's important to identify any negative money scripts so that you can shift them into positive scripts that will eventually shape your financial life in a positive way.
(EFT (Tapping) is a great way to start identifying and shifting your scarcity mindset into abundance. It is deceptively simple to get started, however the results are life changing. Tapping is a component of bilateral stimulation which works to break up mindset blocks we may be carrying concerning money.)
As you consider changes to your finances, start with examining your mindset to see how you may be sabotaging yourself even while planning fervently for your financial future.
