Did you know that you can increase your manifesting power with money by cleaning up your financial past?
This powerful concept — cleaning up the past, or completing incompletes — can shift money blocks and open the floodgates to more money.
Without knowing it, we may be lacking in integrity with our money. Instances where we might have stolen money, or made unclear agreements with others about money, or taken financial actions out of alignment with our value system — such experiences stay stored in the subconscious mind, and unless retrieved and addressed, can actually hamper our ability to generate the kind of income we’re going for.
We are in a relationship with money, whether we’re aware of it or not.
If our relationship with money feels heavy or burdensome, it could be because there are memories with money that we have forgotten about or unconsciously blocked out — memories that are still hampering our financial flow!
I’ll give you some examples.
When I was 16, my boyfriend and I went to the gas station. We put gas in the car, and then left without paying. I also remember two instances when I did a dine and dash — going out for a meal and knowing in advance that we didn’t have the money for it, and we’d leave after eating. I also remember shoplifting twice, and getting arrested one of those times. It felt very traumatic and shameful! As a young woman, I had no leadership around money. I have very little resources, and I was taking these actions to try and get my needs met. At the time, I didn’t realize that I would carry the shame and guilt into the future.
Even when we’ve committed certain actions long ago, they can still affect us on a subconscious level, leaving us with imprints of shame and guilt. As Carl Jung says, the unconscious is like a bag we’re carrying behind us without knowing it. We may not know it’s there, but we feel the weight.
The good news is that we can still take action to resolve these experiences, even long after the fact.
What might that look like?
Well, when I was young, I’d occasionally go into my father’s bedroom at night, and steal money out of his wallet. Recently, as part of my own upleveling with money, I realized I had never confronted this memory, and the emotions it left me with.
I decided to really look at this past situation, and come to terms with it. I went through a healing process by sharing it with others (exposing our vulnerability is big part of how we resolve shame). Although my father has passed away, I could still take action to resolve this experience, and re-establish a sense of balance and integrity within myself, with my father, and in my relationship to money. I decided to donate money to a cause I feel my father would have been really connected to — an organization that empowers children by bringing them out into the great outdoors.
This is how we regain our power with money.
When we take responsibility for how we’ve contributed to our own experiences of shame and guilt with money, we can clean them up, and pave the way for a brighter, more abundant financial future.
