It’s Never About the Money

Imagine for a moment that you are a doctor. Your patient comes in and says she is having trouble getting enough air when she walks; she simply cannot breathe.

Would you focus only on the kind of air the person was breathing? Would you look for ways to have her have more air around her? Would you recommend she “breathe shallower” so as to not use up the air that is around her?

Even without medical training, I am certain you know the amount of air isn’t the issue. Not getting enough air is the result. The issue that causes that result lies within the underlying structure of the patient.

Money issues are always the same.

Money is simply supposed to be an energy that flows in and out of our lives, giving us exactly what we need to live a full, prosperous life. It’s supposed to be as natural as breathing; you shouldn’t even have to think about it and it will flow.

Yet, for many of us that isn’t the case. Since it isn’t flowing the way we want, we start to “knuckle down,” spend less and look for more ways to make more money; but, money keeps being blocked.

Why? We’re looking at the wrong issue. Money itself isn’t the issue; lack of money is the result, just like not being able to breathe is the result of an underlying problem in the body, not the fact that air is limited.

What’s the real issue behind our lack of money?

Of course, the answer to this is as individual as we are, but here are some of the more common underlying issues I’ve seen my clients grapple with:

  • If more money is flowing, you’ll have to address relationship issues.
  • You believe it’s either money or: time, trust, spirituality, family, love.
  • Having no money keeps you safe: Without a large business, you’ll never have to face the fear of speaking your truth to the world.
  • Not having enough money keeps you from acting out of your purpose.
  • It’s easier to have issues with money than to shift our long-term belief that we can’t have what we truly want to have.
  • It’s easier to have issues with money than to know it’s safe to ask for what we want.
  • If you have money, then you’ll have to re-evaluate what you think of “rich” people, their values, their connection with Spirit, their thoughtfulness, desire to help other people.
  • If you have money, you’ll have to be even more responsible than you are now, live up to even more expectations.

How do you begin to ‘diagnose’ your personal blockages? Ask yourself these beginning questions:

  1. What would happen if I had all the money I wanted?
  2. What decisions would I have to make?
  3. What does not having money keep me from doing / being / having?
  4. What would having more money keep me from doing / being / having?
  5. Imagine yourself with the business that you want—reaching the number of people you want to reach, having the income flow that you want. What does your daily life look like? How does it affect your relationship? The way you want to be in the world? How you show up in your purpose.

The answers to these questions are the clues you need to diagnose where your prosperity blocks lie. As you heal the blocks, the money will flow.
