Innercise: Discover Your Hidden Money Story

Author: NeuroGym Team | October 31, 2016

Have you ever felt like you had an internal “block” of some sort, that’s keeping you from earning more money?

If so, did you know what the block was?

Everyone has an internal “money story.” That’s the collection of beliefs and experiences associated with money. It’s often tied to your upbringing, or your closest circle of friends and family.

Many people actually aren’t fully aware of the good and bad parts of their money stories. They just experience happiness or frustration at the results.

So how do you find out what your money story is?

The easiest way to test your discomforts with money is to “try on” different beliefs, and see which ones aren't fitting you right now.

Your brain has a “financial set point.” That’s the range of money that you’ve experienced in the past, that your brain now expects for the future. If you find yourself making more money, and then suddenly you’re pulled toward self sabotaging behaviors, that’s why.

Your disabling money beliefs are the “how.”

Once you become aware of what they are, you’ll start to notice them. When that happens, they actually start to have less power over you.

Follow the steps in the innercise below to figure out what your biggest money block is.

Innercise For Discovering Your Money Blocks

  1. Take 6 long, slow, deep breaths. Feel yourself becoming completely relaxed.
  2. Now, one at a time, say the following affirmations to yourself, and feel your natural response to each idea. Be completely open, and let your thoughts flow freely. As you read each affirmation, pay close attention to how it makes you feel. Ready?
    1. I fully resonate with earning large sums of money.
    2. Whatever obstacle is in my way, I easily figure out a way around it.
    3. Money flows to me, from known and unknown sources.
    4. I feel so proud and confident that I am earning all the money I deserve
    5. I have all of the power within me, right now, to earn as much money as I choose.
    6. Making money is so much fun for me.
    7. I deserve to earn all of the money I want.
    8. I am certain in my abilities to double or triple my income.
  3. Make a note of the affirmations that caused you to feel the most resistance when you read them. Can you think of times in your life where this resistance held you back?

Now that you know where one or two of your money blocks are, you’ll start to notice when they show up. Realize that it’s just a story, and you can choose to believe it, or not.

Here’s why this innercise is so important…

You have "declarative" and "nondeclarative" beliefs.

If someone asks "Do you feel confident that you could double or triple your income?"  You may say "Yes!" right away, even though in the back of your mind you're thinking "I don't have the skills for that," or "No way I'm smart enough to earn that much..." 

If you have hidden “nondeclarative” beliefs, you’ll continue to sabotage your efforts to earn more.

Now that you know where one or two of your money blocks are, you’ll start to notice when they show up. Realize that it’s just a story, and you can choose to believe it, or not.

The more you reinforce  your declarative beliefs through innercise, the sooner your nondeclarative beliefs will align to help you achieve the success of your dreams.
