We create our realities from the inside-out. This means your predominant thoughts, feelings and beliefs (often referred to as "vibrations") create your experiences in the outside world.
Because of this, your beliefs about money create your reality with money. And most of those beliefs were formed in your past.
It's crucial for you to understand your past precisely so that you can move beyond the limiting beliefs that are blocking you from wealth. From there, you create the possibility to form new beliefs that will free you from these blockages, and attract abundance into your life.
To give you a full picture of what's going on, I'll start at the beginning. When you were born, you were basically a blank slate. Think about it: newborn babies don't have beliefs systems — they don't think twice about skin color, religion, politics or money.
Yet you were born into a family that did have beliefs systems. Then you probably went to school, made friends, and generally surrounded yourself with people who expressed their ideas throughout your development. During these crucial years, you formed your own belief system: anyone who's been alive for a significant amount of time has developed their own thoughts and feelings about how the world works.
Since money is such a significant part of life, your family probably had their own ingrained beliefs about money that you were exposed to early on. And it's likely that their beliefs didn't make you feel particularly empowered about money.
In general, money is a subject that most people feel a ton of fear about. Many of us constantly feel like we're living in a state of lack, scarcity, powerlessness and anxiety when it comes to money. Maybe it's because we grew up in a household infused with fear about money. But whatever the details of your family's belief system were, it is pretty common to become infused with fear about money early on in life.
Now, before I go further, I want you to know that this isn't actually a problem. Since you are here to evolve on your own path — to grow beyond the limiting beliefs of your past — you can reprogram your thoughts. And this process is easier than you think: it's all about becoming conscious of your old thoughts, and intentionally creating a new belief system.
Below are four steps that will guide you to move beyond your past conditioning with money, so you can create a new, abundant belief system and reality.
Step 1: Examine the core fears your family had about money.
Here are some preliminary questions to ask yourself:
