Think about the last time you had some extra money. Not just a couple bucks (or pounds or euros)—a significant amount.
If you’re like most people, that extra money just . . . went away.
Maybe an unexpected bill came in.
Or you found some great opportunity to spend it on.
Or for some reason the next month—or two, or three—was lean, with less income than usual.
It’s not just you. This happens all the time.
Watch my video for an in-depth look at why your subconscious may be making the “extra” money just go away:
Well, the short answer is that having that extra money (i) doesn’t match how you see yourself and (ii) conflicts with your internalized, subconscious beliefs around money.
Let’s start with those subconscious beliefs, which I call “success blocks.” Some of the common success blocks you might have are:
- A subconscious belief that rich people are bad, greedy, or evil. So your subconscious protects you from becoming one of them by getting rid of the money as fast as possible.
- A feeling that having too much isn’t safe—because you’ll be rejected, or targeted, or it will get taken away. So, again, your subconscious protects you by making sure you don’t keep it.
- A money ceiling—an amount that fits the lifestyle you grew up with. Even though you’re capable of bringing in more, your subconscious puts the brakes on whenever you start to make that happen.
Those are just a few of the common success blocks around money my clients come to me with. And there’s lots more.
If you’ve been through enough of those experiences where you can’t seem to hold on to extra money or sustain that level of income, you may start to see yourself consciously as unlucky.
Or no good with money.
Or a bad business person.
It’s really none of those things. It’s just that your subconscious needs to be changed.
That’s where Tapping comes in. It’s the only way I’ve found to actually change the subconscious.
First, identify and tap to release your negative success blocks around money.
Then create and internalize a new identity—a new picture of who you are with more money. Tapping can help with that, too.
(Some people will tell you that you should skip straight to changing your internalized identity around money. That can work, but if your subconscious success blocks are too strong your new picture just won’t stick. That’s why I release the old blocks first.)
Then, with the old blocks gone and the new identity internalized, you’ll start to let the money in. And keep it.
Because your subconscious will accept that higher level of income as your “new normal.”
