What You Really Believe About Money Can Hurt You

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you struggle with money, you probably have a money block.

A money block is a belief or rule in your subconscious that prevents you from making—and keeping—the money you know you’re capable of.

(WOW do I know how frustrating that is!)

But a money block is subconscious, so how do you figure out what’s going on?

I just did a video about this. Have a look:

There’s an easy way to uncover one or more of your own money blocks. Just notice what you believe down deep about money.

  • Not what you tell yourself to get psyched up to make that new offer.
  • Not what you daydream about, thinking what your life and business could be like if only.
  • Not what you know should happen if you raise your rates. Or follow a budget. Or release that new product. Or . . .

I’m talking about what comes up automatically, when you’re not thinking the way you’re “supposed to.”

Do you find yourself echoing negative money messages from childhood, like:

  • We can’t afford it
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees
  • Money is tight now
  • We may not have much, but at least we have each other?

Those kinds of messages can be internalized as a bedrock belief that there’s never enough.

A belief like that will have you going through life unconsciously making decisions and taking actions (or not taking them) that create a life where there’s never quite enough.

Do you catch yourself thinking things like:

  • Making money is hard
  • No one will pay me that much
  • I’m just not good with money
  • I don’t deserve it
  • I’m not good enough

Those kinds of thoughts reflect an internal block that will—at the very least—slow you down when you try to raise your rates. Or close a sale. Or offer a new product. Or do anything that could bring you more money.

No matter what you tell yourself consciously.

Here’s one more place to look. When you think about people who have a lot of money, do you think:

  • They’re not so special.
  • I’m better than they are!
  • Rich people are greedy. Or shallow. Or mean. Or . . . ?

Thoughts like that reflect a deep-seated (but still subconscious) belief that having money would make you a bad person.

If some part of you believes that, why would you ever let yourself have a lot of money?!

So listen to your automatic thoughts. They will point to your subconscious money blocks—not just what they are but where they came from.

Once you recognize what your blocks are and where they come from you can use Tapping to get rid of them.

If you just realized you have some money blocks you could use some help releasing, I can help.

In my Money Blocks Solution, we get rid of a lot of those money blocks so you can let in more money.

We’re starting in early October, though, so don’t wait. Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll talk about what’s going on and whether the Money Blocks Solution is a fit.

I would love to have you join us.

Happy Tapping!

Do You Have a Money Block?

Do you have a money block—a subconscious bit of “old programming” that gets in the way of your making, and keeping, more money?

The short answer is, if your financial situation is not where you know it could be then yes, you have a money block. (Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!)

If you want to get more specific about how your money block shows up, ask yourself:

  • Do I make less than I know I’m capable of?
  • Do I struggle to raise my rates to what others are charging, even though I’m giving as much as (or more than!) they are?
  • Does it feel like I’m on a money roller coaster, making plenty of money one month, then wondering how I’m going to pay the bills the next?
  • Does it seem like I lose any extra money as soon as I get it? [Maybe you invest it in yet another expensive program. Or an unexpected bill comes in. Or….]
  • Does it seem like I’m stuck at the same financial level, no matter what I do?

These are just some of the common ways money blocks make their presence known. 

And as long as you have a subconscious money block, it doesn’t matter how motivated you are to make more money, rein in your spending, or grow your business, you will keep holding yourself back. 

I get it. It is sooooo frustrating to have to keep doing battle with yourself, over and over again. Pouring all this energy into your business and never seeing the returns you know are within your reach! 

It doesn’t have to be this way. I’ve released all of these money blocks—and more—with clients.

So if one or more of those questions is a “yes” for you, my Money Blocks Solution is the perfect solution.

It will be starting again in the beginning of October. Just a few weeks away.

If you’re wondering if the Money Blocks Solution would be right for you, just reach out. 

Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and your money and see if there’s a fit.

Wouldn’t it be great to finally stop holding yourself back?!

Is an Old Identity Sabotaging You?

I get how totally baffling it can be to know what you need to do to take your business to the next level. To be perfectly capable of doing it. To see others with—dare I say—less ability than you do take off, leaving you in their dust.

Yet you’re stuck at the same too-low level

  • Reaching fewer clients than you could.
  • Making less money than you want.
  • Having less of an impact.

Year after year.

What’s with that?!

That was what my client was going through. She had a good business, but knew it could be so much more.

She had a money ceiling. She wanted to make more, but she wasn’t doing enough networking, or following up on leads, or finding referral partners, or . . . or . . . or . . . .

And if, by some miracle some additional money did come in, she’d spend it. Or slow down her business even more.

My client had done this for years. She had no idea why.

And the pinch was getting worse.

Her daughter was graduating from college, and my client wanted to help start her off on a good footing. Retirement was looming on the horizon (with not much squirreled away). The house needed repair work. There was travel she’d been putting off.

No more.

It was time to change.

So we started Tapping. And up came an old identity. A way she had seen herself for so many years that she didn’t question it. An identity that didn’t include being very successful or making a lot of money.

That old identity was calling the shots.

Watch the video to see what that identity was and how we changed it to fit the new reality she wanted to create.

In case you’re wondering, yes, the money is starting to come in more and more in my client’s business. More importantly, she is taking the steps to bring in more properties to manage, hire more people, and grow her business for years to come.

Now, being a successful, highly-paid business owner is her new identity, and it fits her current—and future—life much better.

So if you’re feeling stuck, unable to break through to the next level, maybe it’s an old identity that needs to be “updated” with some Tapping.

If you’d like some help with that, just email me and we’ll set up a time to talk about what’s going on with you to see if there’s a fit with what I do.

What Is Sabotaging Your Business?

I just finished up my 4-part series to help self-employed folks become more confident  with selling during these uncertain times. We did a lot of tapping to release fears of coming off as sales-y, thinking no-one has money now, feeling like no-one will buy from you, and more. 

By the end, I realized two things:

  1. Most of the messages holding you back during these coronavirus times are the same messages that were always there in your subconscious. Holding you back. And . . .
  2. One of the biggest reasons you may be keeping yourself from making effective offers or selling well is subconscious rules around money. Rules that tell you you’re not allowed to have more, or it’s not safe to have it, or you’ll be rejected if you have too much, or any of the other internalized negative messages you have around money that overcome your desire to have more.

Maybe both of those are self-evident to you. For me, the realizations were profound. 

That’s why I did this video about them for you:

So if you’re not selling as much or as well as you know you can now, it could just be those old money rules from your past coming up to slow you down. Consider doing some tapping on them.

If you’d like some help with that, I’m here. Just email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com and we’ll set up a time to talk about what’s going on with you and see if there’s a fit with what I do.

What’s Causing Your Money Block?

Here’s a series of videos I recorded on Facebook Live about the top subconscious blocks that might be holding you back from having more money. There’s a lot of content here, so feel free to watch any that call to you. 

(And check out the four different ways my hair is responding to the new order of things. I think it’s protesting not getting cut!) 

Enjoy! 

  • In this video, you’ll hear about the two biggest subconscious messages I’ve found that have kept my clients (and me) from improving our financial situation.

  • Here’s one that sets out an extremely common way you can “inherit” a money block, an interesting way a business owner might inherit a money block from a family member, and a truly strange way a family can pass down a money block. (I’ve had all three.)

  • Then there’s the one about how a money block can lead to pain or illness. I let you in on the most likely subconscious money message that leads to your body getting in the way.

  • And in this one, see if you recognize a belief in yourself that making money is hard. If so, that will get in the way of creating the kind of financial situation that you want.

    (The subconscious message at play here is actually the same as the one in the previous video, but it shows up in a different way.)

These are some of the kinds of blocks I released in my Money Blocks Solution with EFT/Tapping last time I offered it. 

The Money Blocks Solution is starting up again this week with its new and improved name. (The Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is so 2019!)

So if you’re ready to release your own blocks to having and keeping the kind of money you want, help is here!

For more information go to https://unblockresults.com/money-blocks-solution/

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the Money Blocks Solution is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. We start Friday, May 15th! And I won’t offer it again until fall.

Join My Tapping Circle for Pandemic Stress

Come to my online Tapping Circle to release stress and overwhelm caused by the coronavirus pandemic for four Fridays starting March 27th, 2020. It’s free to anyone over 18. 

You might be reacting to stress from the news and changes in your community, work and home from the pandemic in different ways, like

  • Feeling overwhelming emotions,
  • Being unable to think clearly or take action, or
  • Having your body react with tension and even debilitating pain.

If you are reacting in any way that is not working for you, know that you don’t have to be stuck feeling and thinking like this. Tapping is a great way to release stress and get moving again. In this Facebook Live I recorded, I explain all about the Tapping Circle and how it works:

You can get more details for the Tapping Circle, including how to attend it online, at https://unblockresults.com/tappingcircle/ 

That page includes two additional videos. The first one teaches you the mechanics of tapping so you’re ready to tap along in the Tapping Circle, together with a tap-along for basic stress that you can use anytime you feel stressed. The second video shows you an easy move you can do now to avoid getting overwhelmed by the energy of everyone around you, which has been pretty intense in the past few weeks.

Come for just one, or two, or as many circles as you can.

4 Things To Do Now To Lower Your Pandemic Stress

The news is alarming, I know. Wherever you are, know that I am sending thoughts and prayers for the health and safety of you and your loved ones. I also want to send you something more concrete to help you in these times.

I don’t know about you, but I spent last week freaking out as all the changes I’d been hearing about around the world went from distant to my backyard. First the Seattle public schools closed, sending my almost-thirteen-year-old home for two weeks. The next day we heard schools would be closed for at least six weeks. Then the libraries closed. Then all the cafes and restaurants. Each change shrunk my world a bit more.

Now, I understand the need to close these spaces and am more than happy to do my part to slow the spread of the disease, keep my neighbors safe, and limit the impact on our medical communities. But last week I found myself scattered, spending a lot of time on Google News, unable to focus on most things.

The one thing I was able to focus on was my clients, who were also struggling with the changes brought on by this pandemic. Many are business owners who were worried, unable to think of how to keep their businesses afloat. So we tapped on what they were experiencing, lowering their stress so they could access their creativity and find ways to get their businesses back on track.

By Friday, I realized I also needed to lower my own stress levels so I could stop procrastinating and take action in my business. Which I did by Tapping, which is a great stress reliever—when I remember to use it on myself! I also realized that it was important to share tapping with you in whatever ways I can.

So if you are finding your stress levels going up, whether you are a business owner or not, here are some things you can do now to help you lower your stress.

  1. Watch this recording of a Facebook Live I did last week right before everything in Seattle started shutting down. In it I demonstrate two straightforward ways to tap to lower any stress you are feeling from the current situation (as well as some non-tapping actions you can take).
  1. Watch this second recording from a Facebook Live I recorded this week after I had worked with some clients and tapped down my own stress. You’ll not only see how to do an even simpler third way of tapping for stress, you’ll hear exactly why it’s important to be tapping every day, given what’s going on, to prevent future problems.
  1. If you want more, Gene Monterastelli has collected a list of tap-along articles and recordings that Tapping Practitioners around the world are giving away. Here’s that link: https://tappingqanda.com/2020/03/free-tapping-resources-from-around-the-web-responding-to-covid-19/ (thanks, Gene).
  1. Finally, attend my Virtual Tapping Circle (which will be delivered via Zoom). I’m opening it up for all comers—no-charge! We’ll tap together on what people are experiencing (emotionally, mentally, economically) in the midst of this pandemic to lower our stress starting Friday, March 27th, from 8:30 am to 10 am Pacific time (which is 11:30 am-1 pm East Coast time) and meeting Fridays through April 17th. I’ll have more details next week, but I wanted you to clear your calendars now for as many of the Circles as you can attend. Tapping together can be more powerful than tapping alone.

So—right now—try out the resources listed above, and mark your calendar for Virtual Circles at 8:30 am-10 am PDT (11:30 am-1 pm EDT) on the four Fridays starting March 27th.

Please share this post with anyone you think could benefit from these resources. We all need a little extra help now.

Stay safe.

The Science Behind Tapping

Someone recently asked me to talk about the science behind EFT/Tapping. It’s a question that doesn’t come up too often, but—being the research nerd I am—I was happy to explain what the science shows now.

Check out my new video about how Tapping works and the science behind it.

In the video I describe some of the research about Tapping and how it works. I also apply the theories to the work I do to explain how I think it makes the big changes it does for my clients.

Some of the examples I use show the changes to my clients’ blocks to allowing more money in and keeping it around. It is truly amazing for me to see the changes in my clients’ lives and their futures!

When you’re ready to create the financial life you want, email me to set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is a fit for you.

Two Videos About Getting Rid of Money Blocks With Tapping (and more)

Here is the fourth video in my series on How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. This one takes you through some different ways to tap on your money blocks:

In this fourth video I explain some of the ways I tap with clients to release their money blocks. You’ll also do some actual tapping with me to get started releasing your own subconscious blocks.

As I mention in the video, I always do my best to give as much information and help as I can in my videos. But I know that sometimes someone watching wants to go further than I can go in the limited time I have. If that sounds like you, then I have something you’re going to want to hear about.

I have a coaching group to get rid of those subconscious money blocks that get in the way of your plans and good intentions. I’m calling it the Money Blocks BlockBuster Group Coaching Program—until I can come up with a catchier title!

Imagine what your life will be like, what you’ll be able to do, the changes you can make when you release your old, negative patterns around money! (If you want some help visualizing that, read what these clients have to say.)

If this calls to you, watch this video that describes the group in more detail and explains why working with a group can be even more effective than just working on your own. Give it a watch now:

When you’re ready to get rid of what’s been causing your money problems, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s been going on in your financial life and see if the group is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though—the first group starts next Friday, November 22nd! This group will have rolling admission. That means you can join whenever there is an opening. But . . .

• It’s a small group by design, only 8 people, so if you delay you may have to go on the waitlist and wait until there’s another opening.

• Getting started with the group now means you don’t have to wait until 2020 to start seeing results in your own money situation.

• And, to reward those who take quick action, I’m giving a private one-hour session to each of the first 8 people to sign up. You don’t want to miss that!

So jump on this opportunity now. Start changing your financial picture—and your life—right away!

Identifying Your Specific Money Blocks

Check out the third video in my series on How Tapping Can Help With Money Problems. This one shows you how to identify your specific subconscious money blocks—an important step in releasing them!

In this video I explain how I track down and put words to those types of subconscious money blocks, measure how powerful each one is, and decide which to work on with my clients.

Then I give you ways that you can start uncovering your own subconscious money blocks. Happy Hunting!
