Subconscious Money Blocks Between You & Abundance
Living from abundance is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. However, scarcity is deeply embedded into our conditioning and keeps us from experiencing the true power of abundance. So how do we overcome our scarcity programming and step into abundance?
In The Soul of Money, Lynne Twist unpacks the myths of scarcity that show up regardless of your income level. The 3 lies of scarcity are there’s never enough, more is better, and that’s just the way it is and there’s nothing I can do about it.
Growing up with a single mother, I understand all too well how these ideas of lack become ingrained in our subconscious minds.
Simultaneously, when I first read this book I was doing financial & business management for clients who had multiple 7-figure incomes. I noticed that even though they were well off financially, they kept falling into unconscious patterns guided by these same three hindrances.
So let’s unpack these myths a bit more to understand how they keep us stuck in scarcity.
1. There is never enough. This ideology keeps us living in fear. Fear of running out of resources. Fear of feeling unsafe. By simply looking around we can see that there is more than enough food, water, and shelter to go around. It’s not that we don’t have the resources, it’s instead about utilizing our resources effectively. This is the promise abundance offers, and nature is an excellent example.
2. More is better. Whether it’s the newest iPhone, a new car, or a bigger house, this lie aims to keep us buying and striving by tying our sense of worth to performance & external validation. Tapping into abundance allows us to focus on what’s truly important and frees us from relying on superfluous spending to feel complete. It is possible to live minimally, sustainably, AND luxuriously.

3. That’s just the way it is and there’s nothing I can do about it. Stuck in a victim narrative, we are as far away from the power of abundance as possible. The political, social, and spiritual revolutions of late prove to us that we can do something about it. We are living through a shift away from fear, scarcity, and patriarchal control into connection, inclusion, and harmony.
If we want to tune into abundance, we have to acknowledge how these myths of scarcity are showing up in our lives.
What do you think of when you hear abundance? For some it might bring up a lofty image of sitting in a meditative stance and having money simply fall into your lap.
For others it may mean security. Not having to worry about where your money is coming from. Being able to give and receive with ease.
Regardless, one thing is for certain. Abundance is an energy, a vibration or frequency that requires a certain mindset to be attracted, received, and embodied.
And embodying abundance is based on an internal foundation of confidence and self worth.
Confidence is how we feel about our abilities and self worth is what we inherently believe we are deserving of receiving. While confidence can be built by developing or mastering certain skill sets, developing self worth may require a more intimate healing journey.
Confidence in ourselves is what calls opportunities in, but if we find ourselves lacking in self worth it likely won’t stick. Self worth is often the part that determines what stays in our energy field once it has been attracted.
If you find yourself struggling with self worth I want to encourage you to start unpacking what is holding you back from feeling worthy. When, where, and from who did these beliefs of unworthiness start?
Guided meditations and journaling activities are great ways of getting in touch with these more vulnerable, wounded parts of ourselves as well as other therapeutic modalities.
To better understand your energetic resonance around abundance I want you to ask yourself,
“Do I believe it is my divine right to be abundant?”
Your answer could be a full-body yes, a definitely not, or anywhere in between. Whether you are ready to receive abundance deep in your soul or you simply understand it as a concept & aren’t fully resonating with the emotional embodiment yet, there are no wrong answers here.
I am confident that if you are reading this article you are on the right path towards receiving abundance in your life. And I am grateful & honored to be a part of that journey.
