What are your money vibes?

How Is Your Money Feeling?

WITH DENNISE WILLIAMS

Sunday, November 05, 2017



Jamaican vibes are characterised as chill and laid-back. Yet, financially speaking, many of us give off vibes that are not chill and laid-back.

Life coach Victoria Lorient-Faibish notes, “Science has brought to light the ability to measure the different frequencies, including the frequencies of different thoughts. Interestingly, negative thoughts like anger, worry, fear, scarcity and guilt measure very low on the scale, while positive thoughts like love, forgiveness, abundance-thinking yield the highest measurements. Everything we touch or engage in is deeply affected by our vibration.”

So how is your money feeling? What are your money vibes? And if you are not getting the financial results you want, is it possible to change your financial vibration?

If you are willing to accept the reality of the Law of Attraction (like attracts like), then perhaps you would be willing to accept the concept of the Law of Vibration. It is like our body is a radio transmitter. We are transmitting the financial vibes that send out messages, and we then see the results.

Life coach Mike Dooley notes, “People live by the old saying 'Seeing is believing' — but why don't we learn from history and realise that something might be true even though we donīt see it? We donīt have to see something to believe it. Itīs the other way around — believing will make you see. Most people only choose to look at what they know and what they can see.”

Success coach Kathy Caprino offers four powerful ways to change your wealth programming and create a new vibration about money. “If you want to increase your wealth, it's important to recognise that money has a mind/body component that offers you the opportunity to take control of how much you have.”

Here are the four recommended disciplines that will help you reach your goals if you commit to them as a daily practice.

1. Realise your current amount of income, savings and debt are the RESULT of your “inner wealth set-points.”

We look at how much we are earning and our savings and debt, and tend to think they are the result of a variety of external factors beyond our control and mistakes we have made over the years. When you realise that you started with precise wealth set-points and everything that has happened in your money has actually been a result of these set-points, you step back into control. Instead of blaming yourself for mistakes of the past or avoiding money altogether, you can unravel these set-points and actively create new ones for yourself.

2. Get clear on your money paradigm.

Your set-points came from one place – your family. So start to think back to your childhood and imagine watching a movie of your parents dealing with money, bills, finances, working. Notice how your parents feel in this movie when they dealt with money and the kinds of things that they would have likely said.

Was there anxiety, worry, disappointment, fighting? Were there any big traumas around money when you were growing up, like a divorce or death or child support battle or job loss?

If you could see yourself in the movie as a child, how did it impact you? What did you learn? How hard did your parents have to work for their money, and did they ever get to enjoy it? All of these questions will allow you to clarify exactly what money paradigm is programmed into you both in terms of limiting beliefs AND in emotional reactions in dealing with money.

3. Self-diagnose any “financial traumas” and work them out.

Financial trauma is often lurking in our inflated debt or our deflated savings account, and it will act like a dark storm cloud hovering over our finances until we clear it away. Look at your finances and see if there's something that happened in the past about which you can say, “If that had not happened, I would be so much better off.”

If so, it's likely that you're still harbouring burdensome emotions around your money, (sadness, guilt, fear, loss of trust and belief in yourself) and until you clear it out, it will be a drain on your energy, confidence and wealth. It's almost impossible to implement a strategy for our debt reduction or savings growth, and bring all of our brilliance to it, when we have a financial trauma weighing us down.

4. Make new goals in your money and use “conscious will- power” to stay on track.

Once you realise that you've been earning, spending and managing your money based on outdated rules that have been handed down through generations, you can free yourself to make new choices. Set a new goal for your income and for your savings account and get clear about the difference between the two.

Challenge your inner belief and set an outrageous new income goal to match. Once free from the programming that keeps you “living from pay cheque to pay cheque,” creating a wealthy and healthy savings account is based solely on smart money management strategies.

After setting a new savings goal, you must clarify how badly you want it and how much energy, focus, ideas and willpower you are willing to bring to the table. If you could bring even half of the achiever you are at work every day to your savings account goals, you are sure to succeed.

And as usual, we advise you not to go it alone. Let go of the financial anger and guilt and raise your vibes.
