Money can create a lot of inner conflict for women. Whether it’s getting rid of inherited attitudes and habits, owning your value and charging what you’re worth, or claiming your independence and autonomy, money is intertwined with how you show up in the world. If you don’t have a handle on it, it’s sure to create problems.
One of the most frequent topics clients come in with is money. It doesn’t seem to matter if the person is wealthy or struggling. Money almost always comes up. If you don’t have a problem with money yet it may not stop you from worrying about it. Where did we get this obsession with cash?
In our modern society, we have learned to value others based on how much money they have, or how much they make. Many people turn their backs on their passions at a young age in order to study a subject that will earn them more money. Eventually, many of them realize that they have sold their soul and all the money in the world won’t buy them peace of mind or happiness.
Money, in and of itself, is neutral. It’s just a piece of paper that we have all agreed has a certain value. The way we relate to money, and the things it affords us, both tangible and intangible, can show us a lot about what we value.
A Deeper Perspective
The Goddess of Now says that money really has very little to do with your value in this world and to those around you. Money is a symbol of value that is been used for a multitude of purposes. When you give it too much weight in your life, it is easy to lose your natural sense of self.
The money game has been going on for a very long time. The important thing for you to understand is that once you separate your own value from your relationship with money, it will be easier to navigate your finances in a conscious and empowering way.
