I recently put the question of money blocks out to my friends on Facebook
and the response was overwhelming. Most people wanted to understand
why, despite their best intentions, their wholehearted actions, and even major
lifestyle changes, they haven’t been able to truly shift things financially.
In my many years working as an intuitive and coach, I’ve found that money
blocks and blocks around financial security aren’t actually about money at all!
First, what does money represent to you? Why do you want more money
in your life? Before reading on, think about it for a second and answer the
OK, now most people would say that money represents security, safety, the
ability to be free of worry and support. So, what most people are searching for, when they’re looking for money – is actually a feeling of security within, and our society has convinced many of us that money is to best achieve it.
But is money and lots of it really going to make you feel safe in the world?
If you base your sense of security on how much money you have – you will
constantly have to make more and more money in order to satisfy your need for
security. No matter how much someone has, they MUST spend some of it to
live – so they’ll be putting themselves into a negative repeating pattern of never
feeling secure because the money stockpile is decreasing.
What if, instead, you were to work on that INSIDE part of you that tells
you that you’re not safe in the world? What if you were to shift your beliefs
so that you were able love and support yourself from within, regardless of
your exterior support situation? I know I’m getting all mushy gushy on you
– but really, this where we have to go. If you can shift that feeling of being
unsafe and unsupported on the inside it will actually become reflected in
your environment (on the outside). If you truly believe you’re taken care of,
opportunities, people, jobs, experiences and yes, money will all show up to
match that belief!
So, those of you who have been wondering why you haven’t been able to
bring more money into your life are probably beginning to see the answer I’m
offering – it’s because you’ve been focusing on the wrong spot! Zeroing in on
the money rather than on the erroneous belief within you that says you’re not
safe in the world will not produce the life you’re looking for. Instead, working
on changing your crazy seed thought that tells you over and over that you’re
not safe, supported, or protected will open you up to being able to experience
your life happily and with immense support.
Shifting your financial situation is not about manifesting and it’s not about
affirmations. You can’t talk yourself into believing that you’re safe in this
world, if your experience continually tells you otherwise. As long as you
believe you’re not safe in the world, you won’t be because we experience our
lives through our beliefs and experiences.
The answer is always within and it’s what you believe about yourself on the
inside that carries the most weight here. It doesn’t matter that intellectually you
know that every soul is safe, supported, and protected if deep down, you don’t
believe that your own soul actually is too. When you finally believe that you
are safe, supported and protected in the world – you will be. It’s that simple –
but you have to look (and work) in the right place!
So, take a few days and start noticing where you don’t feel safe or supported.
Try to find those places at work where you feel unsure of depending on another
to assist you, or where you don’t reach out for help, or where you keep things
to yourself because you don’t want anyone to notice you... all of these are
signs that you have this Unsafe/Unsupported/Unprotected Seed Thought and
the more you call it out, the easier it is to shift it.

Excerpted from the Introduction of Soul Contracts: Find Harmony and Unlock Your Brilliance (Atria Books/Beyond Words)
Many unseen and unconscious energies influence you every day. They can cause you to behave a certain way, think a certain thought, or believe certain ideas about yourself—these energies are your Soul Contracts and they are part of your Soul System. All these ways of thinking, feeling, and believing take away from your ability to discover who you really are. They prevent you from living the life you want to live, having the relationships you so deeply desire, finding the success you’re craving, and more.
They also provide a beautiful, detailed road map for figuring out how to get where you want to be. The
things that are blocking you from your achievements are actually showing you how to free yourself.
Imagine that you’re driving down the highway. You pass a sign that cautions Road Work Ahead. Now
that you’ve been warned, you’re able to prepare for the challenge ahead, figure out your options, and
make any needed adjustments. You can choose to drive around the construction, find an alternate road,
or even turn around and drive in the other direction. Once you know that there is a block (and what it is),
it’s much easier to manage.
The problem arises, however, when we do not interpret the warning signs correctly, or miss them
entirely. For example, imagine you had your head turned the other way as you drove by the sign.
Perhaps you interpreted the sign to mean “the road is impassable,” when it really isn’t. Many people
today read the sign and think: Well, that’s the way it is. There is a block up ahead and I just have to
accept it. That’s the way it goes and that’s just who I am. That’s the real problem: when we start
assuming we are broken, stuck, unworthy, and unlovable. Many people unknowingly sabotage
themselves by accepting their blocks as part of themselves.
Nobody but you will get you through your blocks. The barrier ahead is there for you, and only you, to go
through because it represents a lesson your soul needs to learn in this lifetime. So how do you identify
and interpret these road signs? You can begin by learning about your Soul System.
