I have had the privilege of working with women who have realised that much of their financial stress and sense of lack stemmed from childhood. For a long time, they carried an emotional money wound. While they tried to put their pain aside, they found out that their wounds continued to bleed; such that there was an adverse impact on their financial well-being.
These women had tried to “will” their stress away but met with limited success; that is, until we started to work together. Well, I would like to share the stories of how each of them worked on healing their money patterns. To protect their privacy, I have used pen names for them.
Money Healing Story #1: Breaking Free of Glass Income Ceiling
No matter how much effort she put in, Annie couldn’t seem to break through her glass income ceiling for her business. She’s constantly having money worries and that she’d never have enough. While we were working together, Annie experienced an “aha” moment. She suddenly realised how her unconscious limit in earnings came about.
Her dad had struggled to make a living when she was young. Unfortunately, Annie internalised some of the messages he had shared with her about his money troubles. During our session, she “saw” the amount that was written on the cheques he had been banking in from his job. To her surprise, it was the same amount that she has been earning for a long time from her business.
Annie worked on letting go of her glass ceiling. She gave herself the permission to make more than her dad. Annie no longer limits herself on what she can earn. As a result of her inner work, she has been generating income breakthroughs ever since. Annie found herself attracting bigger and bigger deals for her business.
Money Healing Story #2: From Undeserving to Feeling Worthy
Belinda’s mum would constantly criticise her when she was young. Even though Belinda was born into a well-to-do family, her mum would make it seem that she did not deserve any of it. Her mum forbade her from playing from her friends and piled her with tasks and helping out in the family business. As a result, she spent all her time studying and working.
Today, as an adult, Belinda has been struggling with believing that she is deserving of love and money and also, worthy of receiving. None of her money-making ideas has taken off. She often felt guilty if she did not help out in her family business and would prioritise the needs of others before hers.
Belinda worked on healing some of her money wounds, and changing her beliefs to affirming that she is deserving. Her confidence improved tremendously, as a result. She has also given herself the permission to feel safe about taking a break and changing how she views work. Belinda has also learnt to prioritise self-love and care.
Money Healing Story #3: Mending Her Money Wounds
Chelsea has a mum who used to demand money from her ever since she started work at 14 years old. At one stage, she had to juggle 3 part-time jobs, so that she can help supplement her family’s income. Even then, her mum would constantly undermining her confidence. Unable to concentrate, her school grades suffered badly.
As soon as Chelsea reached adulthood, she moved out from home to get away from the toxic environment. However, due to her poor grades, she had to start work from the bottom. Life was hard but she managed to persevere.
Still, Chelsea was aware that she could do with much less struggle. It’s how she ended up with doing inner work to heal her deep money wounds. She has come a long way in gaining a greater sense of financial well-being.
Money Healing Story #4: Overcoming the Fear and Anxiety of Not Having Enough
Daisy had found her insecurities with money to be debilitating. When she was young, her parents had to rely on government handouts. Her parents just could not take up financial responsibility and were not able to manage their expenses properly. They had constant fights about money and Daisy lived in persistent fear of not having enough to survive throughout her childhood.
Even though the circumstances today had changed tremendously for Daisy, she continued to live in the constant worry that she will not have enough. She had been fearful that her money would run out and would pick fights with her husband.
Through our sessions, Daisy worked on calming her nervous system so that she can find safety and calm. Also, she worked on tapping into her worthiness. She is now on the way to levelling up her business from “just getting by” and holding space for more clients.
