Money Guilt Blocks Abundance
Several years ago I was in great need of some extra income. My car had broken down, my computer needed upgrading, and several annual bills hit all at once. Although I was saying my abundance affirmations and trying to let go of the worry of being financially strapped, nothing seemed to be working. I was truly in a rut. Then I had an epiphany! I realized I was using the word “abundance” in my affirmations and not specifically asking for “money.”
The word “abundance” does not always relate to money. It can refer to an abundance of joy, happy relationships, good health, and numerous other blessings. By “asking” the universe for abundance in my affirmations and not specifically asking for money, my intention was not clear. The Universe can only respond to a clear set purpose. Okay, so I’m a little slow, but the idea began to take hold. The problem was that I had always felt praying for money was somehow wrong. I had to really do some real soul searching and ask myself why this was so. The answer came to me. It was “money guilt.”
We’ve Been Taught that Praying for Money is Wrong
Too many people have a problem with asking the Universe, or God, for money. The reasons for this may have been ingrained at a young age. Perhaps individuals were taught that “money is the root of all evil,” and “only greedy people ask for money.” Or, “it’s wrong to have wealth when there are so many poor starving people in the world.” Perhaps the reason had to do with a past life in a monastic setting where a vow of poverty was pledged. Regardless of the reasons for having money guilt, this belief can be turned around. Not only that, but you can be as wealthy as you want. There is no crime in having money.
Write down these three simple sentences on a piece of paper or 3” x 5” index card.
1. It is okay for me to have money.
2. Money helps take care of me.
3. I have all the money I need and more.
Keep this paper with you and repeat these three items several times a day. You can even sing them and dance around with free abandon. The point is, really feel the energy of what you are saying as being truth and then let it go. Try it for 21 days and see the positive changes begin take place in your financial affairs. Just be patient. It worked for me!
