If you're an entrepreneur, avid reader, or part of almost any groups on Facebook, you've likely heard the term "money blocks".
Everywhere you look, someone is telling you that you have this horrible thing called a BLOCK, and it's likely fucking up your life.
I believe only part of that is actually true. Let me explain.
As a student and teacher of the beloved Law of Attraction, I fell into the "money block" trap myself. MANY times. I let other people tell me that I had these blocks, and guess what? That only seemed to create more of them.
The game of success can already feel incredibly exclusive and isolating. As entrepreneurs, we work our asses off to create amazing lives, and we all want success. It's natural, and perfectly okay.
But when we introduce the concept of a mental and energetic block to money, it creates a visceral response in the body. It doesn't feel good, does it? Not very empowering.
If you keep feeding this idea of a money block with your attention, what you're actually doing is working even harder to overcome this imaginary thing you believe you have. That energy is actually creating MORE resistance to the thing you want (money).
Good times, right?
This is not to say that I don't believe in subconscious thoughts and beliefs that keep success and money out of reach. I am a mindset coach, after all, so of course I believe in that.
We all struggle with beliefs that tell us we're not good enough, smart enough, attractive enough, ready enough, or invested enough. Every human on the planet has at least a couple of shitty beliefs deeply embedded in their minds and fields of energy.
Those beliefs are formed because of unhealed traumas from our past experiences. A trauma can be as "simple" as an unkind remark made toward you, or it could be as painful as the loss of a loved one. Traumas can also be handed down karmically and inherited from other people (thanks Mom and Dad).
Traumas are traumas. All of them count when we're talking about the way the brain forms beliefs.
A block indicates that you must work realllllly hard to bust through it. It sends a signal to your brain that this is going to be hard work, and it's going to take a really long time to overcome it. It keeps you on the other side of fence, where success and money are NOT.
But a belief? Well, humans change their belief systems constantly. A belief can be changed in seconds (I'm not joking -- I've personally experienced this, and witnessed it firsthand with clients).
You have the extraordinary power to change your beliefs at will. You do not have blocks to shit. YOU get to decide what you feel and believe about money (and by the way, your beliefs about money are not actually about money, but that's for a whole other blog article).
So you can choose: Do you want to continue keeping money and success on the other side of the fence? Or, do you want to feel empowered, stop buying into the "block" bullshit, and start changing your mental programming RIGHT NOW?
It's really all up to you.
