Treating Money Allergies
In a recent post we explored what a money allergy is and how to diagnose it. As requested, this post elaborates on those treatments.
When addressing a conventional allergy to something like pollen or cat hair, typical remedies include avoidance (don’t pet cats!) or masking/impeding the body’s physical response to the allergen (using an antihistamine or decongestant).
However, rather than just treating the symptoms or practicing avoidance, there is a more effective cure for money allergies.
Since the allergic response stems from a resistance to money, the remedy lies in creating alignment to money.
Whatever the source of your resistance to money, you can overcome it by deliberately lining up with financial well-being.
(Meaning you don’t have to know where the resistance originated. Forget identifying limiting beliefs or overcoming traumatic experiences in order to release it.)
So how do you line up with money?
There isn’t just one way to do this, but here’s my favorite. This may take a few tries, but it’s a proven effective approach:
- pre-tending the experience of being at peace with financial abundance (i.e. experiencing in your mind how you prefer to be with money) and
- adopting the identity of someone who is comfortable with (and used to) having plenty of money.
In the past as you’ve been practicing pushing money away, you’ve adopted a persona that is contrary to someone who has money. So that’s one point to shift.
And then by repeatedly visualizing having plenty of money in your world, you’ll eventually overwrite the old resistance. It’s a reprogramming of self on the topic of money.
(It works because we get what we vibrate – so when we practice a new vibration we get new results.)
For the pre-tending remedy I suggest you give it about a half minute of pure positive thought at least once a day. (It may take a couple attempts to work up to 30 full seconds of pure positive thought. If you’re interrupted by a negative thought, the clock starts over.)
As for giving yourself a new identity, you can do that by engaging an “I am” statement that represents your preferred experience with money. (As in, “I am good with money” or “I am delighted to be making a ton of money.”) Write it down and repeat it during your daily self-talk episodes.
For extra icing on the new identity cake, you can practice ‘acting as if’ you already are that person.
When you engage these two practices for treating your money allergy, it won’t be long before things start shifting in your bank account.
These aren’t the only approaches to treating a money allergy, so we’d love to hear what practices you’ve used before.
Money allergies are no fun. If you suffer from a resistance to financial well-being, do yourself a favor and engage a remedy today.
