The Impact of Emotional Blocks on Financial Success
Emotional blocks can hold you back from the life you deserve. Your emotional state and inner being play a critical role in your ability to create financial success. If you don’t feel confident and abundant on the inside, no amount of external strategies will bring you the financial success you desire.
The good news is that if you can identify the emotions holding you back and take steps to address them, you can start achieving the financial success you desire.
Identifying True Wealth
Reaching financial success is not just about making money, it also involves your feelings and emotions. That explains why some people have lots of money in the bank but are still bitterly unhappy.
Knowing who you are and what you want in life, is true wealth. If you create your life knowing who you truly are, you can create true wealth, in a way that feels good for you.
The Role of Negative Emotions in Your Finances
Your thoughts are powerful. If you repeatedly think negative thoughts and start to believe them, your body responds with a sensation that reinforces the belief. This sensation creates a powerful emotion that drives your behaviour and financial decisions. Meaning that you don’t always make the best financial decisions for you.
When you believe you’re not good enough or worthy, you can physically feel that sense of unworthiness in your body.
Your feelings act as a compass that tells you what direction you must take. Negative emotions such as fear, anger, guilt, or shame are not necessarily a sign that you’re on the wrong path. But rather it’s like a compass that shows you the direction your path must take.
Your path is meant to show you these emotions so that you can move through them and towards something more beautiful.
So don’t shy away from the negative emotions, but rather embrace and understand them so you can lead a more authentic and fulfilling life.
Overcoming Emotional Blocks
Unfortunately, you can’t force yourself to stop thinking negatively, you must gently become aware of and listen to the language of your soul and what it’s trying to tell you.
One way to find out what your emotional blocks are is to look at what limiting beliefs you have that affect your financial behaviour. For example, if you always feel guilty when you spend money you may notice there is a critical voice in your head telling you that you shouldn’t spend money.
The trick is first to identify this voice and then to confront it and find out where it comes from. It may have developed from previous financial trauma you experienced. Or from someone in your life who taught you to fear spending money. You may even feel unworthy of buying new things.
Moving through and learning from these emotions can eventually dilute or eliminate their effects. Then you can make decisions that feel right for you.
You may even decide that making money is not the most important thing anymore. Because wealth means more than just money – it could be freedom, health, relationships and more.
Strategies for Overcoming Emotional Blocks
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to overcoming these emotional blocks. But by being honest with yourself, reflecting on your experiences, and seeking guidance you can work towards a healthier relationship with money and achieve financial success. But it all starts with awareness, by finding your baseline emotions and identifying your unique emotional blocks.
Find your Baseline Emotion: To find your emotional baseline, sit with yourself or someone else for 10-30 minutes and ask “How are you feeling?” repeatedly. Acknowledge each feeling and observe how they evolve.
For example, if your emotional baseline for your finances is resentment. It’s important to move towards appreciation. This will take time, but by acknowledging and becoming aware of your emotional state and why you feel that way, you can begin to make a change.
Identify Your Emotional Blocks: Pay attention to your feelings and actions in different financial situations.
Here are some examples of how to uncover these blocks:
- Look at your bank balance: When you check your bank account balance, what emotions do you feel?
- Receiving bills: How do you feel when you receive a bill? Overwhelmed, stressed, or angry?
- Paying bills: Do you pay bills promptly or procrastinate?
- Charging for services: Do you feel confident invoicing or charging for work?
Common Emotional Blocks and How to Overcome Them
Here are some common challenges you may uncover and tips on how to overcome them:
Avoiding Responsibility – You might blame everything and everyone else for your financial troubles without taking responsibility for your actions. To overcome this, you need to accept that you are in control and start taking steps towards fixing the problem.
Not Seeing the Bigger Picture – It can be difficult to understand what’s going on when you’re in a financial mess. One way to fix this is by looking at everything from a higher perspective. Try to detach yourself emotionally and just observe the situation. This can help you see patterns and find new ways forward.
Fear of Feeling – Sometimes, you might be afraid to feel your emotions and address the root cause of your financial problems. But it’s important to permit yourself to feel your feelings without judgement. That means creating a safe space where you can be vulnerable and process what’s happening.
