List of limiting beliefs about money | The ultimate list of what’s REALLY going on.

Would you love a list of limiting beliefs about money that might be lurking in your unconscious?

Today I’m going to share with you a list of limiting beliefs about money that covers the top 6 nasties which could be stopping more money from flowing to you.

And I bet they’re not what you’d expect!

As a hypnotherapist and a money mentor for women in business, I’ve helped to clear a lot of limiting beliefs around money, and there is a definite pattern as to the most common ones.

Today I’m going to cover for you the top six limiting beliefs that I’ve helped hundreds of students and clients clear, which has helped them put an end to self-sabotage patterns and finally grow their income and their business.

But what’s more, I’m also going to give you an idea of how these tend to show up, because the thing is that the limiting belief is hiding in the unconscious and it does take a bit of work to uncover. 

But there are certain patterns that will show up as a result of this list of limiting beliefs about money. You can kind of think of them as what the logical outcome would be if that belief were actually true – because even though these limiting beliefs are actually NOT true, at the unconscious level, you believe they are, which makes them true for YOU.

You literally keep attracting and creating situations over and over and over again, that proves them to be true for you.

Let’s dive in and see which of these resonate with you so that we can help you clear the obstacles to your abundance:

Limiting belief number 1: “I’m not good enough”

This is the one that leads to patterns of undercharging, which means that you end up working way too hard for too little money. And it’s also the one that’s responsible for signing up for way too many courses and thinking that you need yet another qualification before you can finally be ‘good enough’.

Limiting belief number 2: “I’m not worthy”. 

This one sounds similar, but it’s very different. This is the one that leads to patterns of giving way too much away for free because you at the unconscious level, don’t feel like you’re worthy of keeping the money and having the good things.

So the patterns that show up as a result of a belief of “I’m not worthy” are things like giving everything away for free & having short discovery calls turn into hour and a half long full-blown sessions that you don’t even charge for. And it’s also the one that’s often responsible for a pattern of where money comes in – even good sums of money – and you finding really creative ways to get rid of it fast.

Limiting belief number 3: “I don’t deserve it”.

Again, sounds similar, but quite different. Each of these limiting beliefs is literally a separate daisy chain in your nervous system. And so it is really important to identify the one that is yours and not to knock out the neighbor by accident.

So “I don’t deserve it,” is the one that leads to patterns of blocking the abundance, of hitting upper limits, of working really, really hard. It’s when the same thing is working for everybody else and you’re using the same strategies, but the money just doesn’t seem to be coming to you, no matter how hard you work for it.

Limiting belief number 4: “It’s not good enough”

This is where whatever you do is not good enough.

This one leads to patterns of overworking, of over perfecting everything, of reworking everything, of giving those extra sessions, because you feel like you haven’t quite done a good enough job for your client. It’s the over-giving and the overworking pattern. That’s usually a sign that there’s a limiting belief that “It’s not good enough”.

Limiting belief number 5: “It’s not safe to shine / be successful”

This is a particular nasty and is the one that keeps you playing small. It’s when you refuse to put yourself out in the spotlight because you have this limiting belief that it’s not safe to shine.

This is the one that will have you avoiding doing Facebook lives, or showing up to do your marketing or following up leads. It’s also the one that creates sabotage when opportunities come up. For example, when you don’t meet the deadline, or you lose the person’s email address that offered to do this amazing joint venture with you.

It’s also the one that leads to patterns of you not closing the sale, and not following through to then step up and be the person who can do that amazing job for your client.

Now, you might be noticing a pattern here that these aren’t really that much about money. 

I’m going to talk about this in a minute and why that’s so critical to recognize, but first let’s talk about the sixth and final one of these top six nasties now.

Limiting belief number 6: “I’m not important.”

This one is the one that will lead to patterns of you putting everyone else first – of you over-giving and not asking for what you want. It basically says that ‘Everybody else’s needs are more important than mine,’ which means that you don’t get your needs met as you’re putting everybody else first.

Let me know in the comments below, which of these limiting beliefs and patterns can you relate to?

You’ll notice that most of the nasties in this list of limiting beliefs about money have pretty much nothing to do with money and everything to do with your self-belief and your self-worth. 

And that’s because it’s not really about the money. 

Money is just a symbol. It’s literally a demonstration of your self-worth,. Your pattern sabotage and blocking of abundance is simply playing out in response to that underlying belief system.

This is your money story. 

It’s the story you bought into at the unconscious level and it’s made up of the sum of all your limiting beliefs. 

If you want to transform that money story, so you can stop blocking abundance and stop making life more difficult than it needs to be, then you really have to start by uncovering your dominant money pattern.

That’s your Money Habit Archetype, and to help you uncover that, I’ve created a really simple quiz – the Money Habit Archetype Quiz, which you can take that right now at www.miriamcastilla.com/quiz

How to stop feeling guilty about the money you spend

How to stop feeling guilty about the money you spend

Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself? 

Let’s talk about that and let’s talk about why it stops more money from coming into your experience.

Maybe you’re in this habit of saying, “Ah, not yet. I won’t spend that money on myself just yet. First I need to hit a six-figure income,” or “When I have my first big month,” or “When my launch does this,” or “When I have this many clients,” or “When I put my price up to X number.”

The thing is that what you will notice if you’re really honest with yourself is that you keep moving the goalposts. You keep finding excuses and you keep skimping and putting yourself last, feeling too guilty to ever really spend that money on yourself.

So my question is: When will you feel ready?

How to hypnotise yourself into abundance

How to hypnotise yourself into abundance

I’m wondering: have you hypnotised yourself to be poor?

So I’m a hypnotherapist and one of the first things I learned in my training is that we actually all hypnotise each other every single day.

Coca-Cola, KFC, McDonald’s know exactly how to hypnotise people into buying their “stuff.” Right?

They know the hypnotic effects of words, images, repetition and people just zoning out in front of the TV – which, by the way, is when your unconscious is completely open.

You’re actually in a trance when you’re watching TV, and that is why TV ads are so powerful.

But we all hypnotise ourselves – and each other – every single day.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Your parents hypnotised you when you were just a little kid which, again, is when the unconscious is completely open. The personality hasn’t fully formed yet. And until about age seven, you’re just open; there’s no filter and everything goes in.

Which is why my 1:1 work with clients usually goes back to things at age 7 or earlier. If they take me to an event that they say is the first time that a limiting belief occured after age 7, I always dig deeper.

Because most often, it happened before age 7 when they were totally susceptible to taking on messages without a rational filter that says, “That’s not really what that means and I’m going to choose to see it from a different perspective.”

They just take things at face value. YOU just took things at face value.

So, we all hypnotise each other.

Our parents are really good at it when we’re young.

And now you also hypnotise yourself every single day.

You do it with your words. Words are extremely powerful. They’re extremely hypnotic and when you repeat the same word over and over again that means you start to believe it.

And as you start to believe it, you repeat it more and more which means you believe it at an even deeper level. And because you know that what you believe at a deeper level is the truth, it means that the words that you are now speaking are you complete and utter truth.

What I just said doesn’t make much sense but it felt like it did, didn’t it?

Because I used hypnotic words. That is how powerful they are.

So, be aware of that.

Be aware of your words and that they are hypnotising you every single day.

Be aware that when you speak to other people, you are actually hypnotising yourself. Words are powerful. 95-98% of everything we do every single day is completely unconscious. So when you hypnotise yourself, what you’re actually doing is you’re programming your unconscious – which runs your life.

It’s like you’re programming the computer that runs the show.

And you want to be careful with how you’re programming it, right?

One thing you can practice is a simple pattern interrupt.

Basically just be aware and when you find yourself saying things that are negative around money like “Oh god, not another parking fine.” and “Oh my god, electricity just keeps getting more expensive.” etc, train yourself to throw in a little pattern interrupt.

Train yourself to say something that interrupts that old pattern firing in your nervous system because that alone will weaken that old pattern… and weaken that old belief system.

It will help you wire in a new belief system… a new pattern that serves you a whole lot better.

What sort of pattern interrupt?

Well, you can train yourself to go “BLAH” everytime you say something that shouldn’t come out of your mouth. But people might think that you’re a little bit weird….

So, how about something as simple as, “Lucky I’ve always got more money coming.” or “Lucky I’m rich!” or “Yeah, that’s right – I can afford this because I always make twice as much as I spend.” Or just anything. Anything at all that’s a pattern interrupt that’s out of the ordinary to what you would normally say.

And that alone is powerful.

This is important stuff, people.

Now, if you’re not quite sure where to begin on this journey to creating life on purpose, to getting in the driver seat and really upgrading your life no matter how good it already is you know it can be better, then take my quiz.

3 Hot Tips for Rewiring Your Brain With A New Money Story

3 Hot Tips for Rewiring Your Brain With A New Money Story

We all know that the unconscious mind is where all the hot action is, right?

Because everything that’s going on for you at the conscious level – 98% of that in fact – is completely driven by the unconscious mind.

The unconscious mind is brilliant. It takes over. It takes care of things for you.

It keeps your heart beating, your lungs inflating. It makes sure you don’t think about how to tie your shoelaces or get dressed in the morning, or how to walk for that matter. Remember trying to learn that? Yeah… me neither.

These things can be difficult in the beginning but once we master them, we become unconsciously competent. 

We just do them without even thinking about it.

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

So they get wired deep into our unconscious mind and they just kind of happen. They’re just on autopilot, which is fantastic for a huge number of things in life. Because I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit too busy to think about keeping my heart beating, and my lungs inflating.

However, what also happens is that sometimes we take on a story, a belief system, and we wire that into our unconscious mind.

Then everything we create, the way we unconsciously behave, the way we see the world and what we expect to get out of the world matches that unconscious belief. So we keep perpetuating this reality over and over and over again, and even though we may not like it, we kind of feel like we’re stuck with it… until we do something about it.

Doing something about it is all about starting to write and starting to live a new story.

When it comes to attracting money and abundance, growing your business, and all that good stuff, you’ve got an underlying old story that says, “This is how things roll.”

As you start to want to create a new story to replace it, you need to start talking about that story. You need to start acting in alignment with that story.

Now, the problem is that a lot of people go too fast, too hard.

They kind of stuff it up because what they inadvertently do is they wire in even more deeply the fact that there is a problem. By trying to fight it too quickly and go too hard too fast they’re actually being counter productive.

So that’s actually the first of the three tips I want to give you for writing a new money story:

Number one, don’t go too hard, too fast.

Go easy and realize that little incremental shifts that actually stick, are going to get you a whole lot further than you trying to make some ridiculous jump overnight that even when you’re saying it and thinking it, there’s a voice in the back of your mind that says, “What a load of bullshit.”

You want to NOT activate that voice that says, “This is bullshit.” That’s basically the aim of the game.

So go slowly and gently enough that you’re not activating that voice. Listen for it. If that voice pops up, back up a little bit and go a little gentler. You can do that over and over and over again and you are absolutely making progress.

The second tip I want to give you is that as you start talking about the way you do want things to be now, the way things are starting to become, you do exactly what I just did and you use “transitional language.”

“Starting to.”

“Becoming.”

“In the process of.”

And when you talk about the old pattern, put it in the past with your language.

Talk about what you used to do, and “In the past…”, and, “Back then this was an issue… but now I’m starting to see things differently. Now I’m starting to feel empowered about my money. Now I’m starting to notice that there’s opportunities everywhere. Now I’m starting to realize that the less I focus on and stress about money, the more money seems to flow, in fact I’m starting to think maybe that’s the secret to the whole thing, that I just focus on all the good stuff in my life, stop obsessing about money, and more money flows, because it happened again last week.

That little bit I added at the end there “because it happened again last week,” that’s the third tip I want to give you.

The third tip is to use what I call a “Universal Truth.”

Put in statements that you know to be true, and that you cannot argue with. Ones that voice that likes to yell out, “Bullshit,” from the back row cannot argue with.

I like to have a universal truth and yes, you can do it the way I just kind of gave you the example, where you state an actual thing that happened.

But a Universal Truth – even better – is like a mantra that you say right there and then as it’s happening. It’s you reinforcing that,”Yes, this is now starting to happen. This is now becoming my new reality. Yes, this is possible and these moments do happen. Look at that, I wasn’t even thinking about my business and people booked in and so it is true that I don’t have to be obsessing about it 24/7 to make money, in fact, sometimes, I’m doing nothing to do with my business and the money just flows.”

You want to reinforce it when it’s actually happening. Jump on that opportunity, pounce on it –  because this is your chance to really hammer it home, to really wire that into your unconscious mind.

So have a universal truth statement that you’ve got ready – because I’m pretty used to doing this and it kind of just flows – but in the beginning particularly, you want to have that universal truth statement ready.

It may sound something like, “But of course, there’s always plenty of money coming,” or, “But of course, everything always works itself out.” You want a statement that you cannot argue with, and that is a universal truth that you use in the moment that applies across the board.

Things like, “That’s right, the universe always has the bigger picture in mind,” and, “That’s right, the universe is always looking out for me,” and, “That’s right, everything’s always working out,” and, “That’s right, money always shows up,” or, “That’s right, the bills do always get paid.”

So you have that universal truth, you have that statement ready, and you throw it in there. And you want that to be very general, a very nice general statement. Something, like I said, that the voice from the back row has nothing to talk about.

So my favourite universal statement is, “Everything is always working out for me. It all works out.”

Mike Dooley mentioned one, I don’t know if it’s actually his that he uses regularly, but he says one and it was, “It’s always working”.Even though I can’t always see it, it’s always working.”

What that does, is you’re using it right there in that moment and it helps you really wire in that this is the new reality.

So remember that, number one, don’t go too hard too fast.

Number two, use transitional language.

And number three, use those statements of universal truth to keep reinforcing right then and there that everything is always working out for you because, baby, it totally is.

Now, as far as rewriting your money story goes, the number one place to start is the very tip of the iceberg. When you start at the tip of the iceberg, you make sure you don’t miss anything.

The tip of the iceberg is called your Money Habit Archetype. It is that big picture pattern of how money shows up for you in your life, over and over and over again. It encompasses all the little different situations. Once you become really aware of that and know how to use that, then you can use that information to rewrite that old money story, so the pattern that’s surfacing can shift.

So it starts with knowing your Money Habit Archetype and if you haven’t done it for a while – or if you’ve never done it – then make sure you jump on my Money Habit Archetype quiz, to which you will find the link in the description.

So hop to it, get started now!

Let’s transform that money story of yours, remember the three hot tips I gave you, and until I see you next, make sure you keep embracing your unlimited potential.

What’s Your Money Habit Archetype?

What’s Your Money Habit Archetype?

Do you know what your Money Habit Archetype is?

Okay, so there are, three broad categories of “habit archetypes” that people fall into when it comes to money.

The thing with money is that we have these habit patterns and they don’t really change that much unless we do something major to shift them.

That’s because a habit is an unconscious pattern in the nervous system, which means that you’ll repeat it over and over and over again without giving it any conscious thought.

You’re unconscious to it.

It just happens automatically on autopilot and meanwhile you’re washing the dishes or on Facebook or whatever you’re doing, and you don’t realize what is going on.

We operate unconsciously about 98% of the time, so it’s not just you, it’s how the human mind works.

When it comes to money, like I said, there are three broad categories of Money Habit Archetype.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Now, they are:

Number one: The Accumulator.

The Accumulator is somebody who always seems to manage to put some money away. No matter what’s going on, they’ve always got a bit leftover and they tuck it aside. So that is the Accumulator.

Number two: The Spender.

This is the person who always kind of breaks even. Money comes in, money goes out. Really, they just spend everything that comes in, everything they earn, and every dollar has an important… or not so important job to do and there’s nothing left.

And the third: The Overextender.

The Overextender is the one that always seems to have not quite enough and is constantly going backwards. They’re constantly accumulating debt, because they spend more than they earn.

Now the really interesting thing about this is that it actually makes no difference as to how much money you make to what habit archetype you are.

The habit archetype has to do with the patterns that are running deep in your subconscious basement. They’re running the show, so the numbers are irrelevant.

You can be an Overextender who always goes into a bit of extra debt, earning $20,000 a year. You can be an Overextender, then as life progresses you’re making $60,000 a year, but still it’s not quite enough because you want that lovely car and you want to live in a nicer place than you can really afford. And then say you do build a business that becomes successful and you’re turning over a million or more, and you decide that you really do want the Ferrari, you want the Porsche as well, and you want to have those amazing holidays in the Maldives while they’re still above water level.

So, no matter how much you’re earning you’re still always just stretching yourself beyond your means, so it’s got nothing to do with how much money you make. That means that if you want to change that pattern, that end result, it’s not just about looking at how can I bring in more money, it’s actually about looking at, “Hm, this pattern… what’s going on with that and what’s that all about?”

So, an easy way to figure out which of those three you fall into, is to look back to your childhood. Think about what you were like as a kid with pocket money or with your first job and you’ll find that it’s actually still the same.

The interesting thing is that the people who are Accumulators, they always feel like, “Yeah I’m saving money but it’s just not enough, there was more to be saved so maybe I’m not an Accumulator, maybe I’m a Spender”. So if that’s how your brain is firing right now, just know that if you’re somebody who says, “Ugh, I only have $10,000 in the bank and it’s just not enough,” you’re an Accumulator.

So what I wanted to let you know is that, you need to figure out what you are and the easiest way to do is to go back to early childhood, because most likely it’s been that recurring pattern ever since.

Then figure out where that came from.
Why do I feel like it’s just never enough?

Most of us just think that if we just became an Accumulator everything would be great, but the interesting thing is, I know lots of Accumulators who are really unhappy about their financial situation, because the undercurrent is that, “It’s not enough, and I’m not safe. No matter how much is in the bank, I’m not safe.”

Or maybe you’re a Spender and you do spend every dollar that comes in, but you’re doing that from the point of view of, “I trust that all my needs are always being met. I trust that I’m able to generate any amount of money I need, and I trust that my bills are always paid, and I trust that I always find the opportunities to help me create more money, so spending isn’t a big deal, because there’s always more coming in.”

If you’re a Spender, and you’re always breaking even, and that is your mindset… that’s awesome! That’s actually fabulous, because the bottom line is that how much money is in the bank is irrelevant, it’s how you FEEL about it that is relevant.

So, if you don’t feel good about your financial situation and your Money Habit Archetype – the way that you operate around money right now – then you do need to go back and just ask the questions, “Where did I learn that? Where did I learn that that’s important or that’s the way things work?” Start to unravel some of those things.

Start to ask yourself those sorts of questions.

Questions are powerful, and on that note before I let you go, I encourage you to do my quiz. I’ve got this great quiz which actually lets you know what the next step is to creating a life of abundance & joy.

We don’t want to be rich and feel like crap and feel like it’s not enough. We want all of it.

So if you feel like that’s not quite humming for you please take my quiz, the link is in the description and it’ll help you work out what your next step from here is, so that you can create that abundant life for yourself.
