Unpacking the Fear of Having Money: A Personal Journey

Have you ever considered the possibility of being afraid of having money? It might sound absurd at first glance but delve a little deeper, and you might find that this fear lurks within more individuals than we realize. As I embarked on my own journey of self-discovery, I stumbled upon this intriguing notion and decided to explore it further.

Picture this: the idea of having a substantial sum of money in your bank account, being able to afford anything you desire, living a life free from financial constraints—sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? Yet, for some, the prospect of financial abundance evokes feelings of anxiety and discomfort rather than joy and excitement.

I found myself facing this paradox firsthand. Despite my fervent belief in the abundance of the universe and my efforts to manifest prosperity, I couldn’t shake off the nagging sense of underachievement and financial insecurity. It was during one of my contemplative walks in the park, accompanied by my faithful canine companion, that I decided to confront this fear head-on.

As I strolled amidst the tranquillity of nature, I posed a question to myself: Why do I still find myself under-earning, struggling with empty bank accounts, and burdened by debts despite my aspirations for abundance? What I discovered was both illuminating and unsettling.

I realized that, subconsciously, I was blocking my own path to financial success. The mere act of contemplating money triggered a cascade of mental barriers, hindering my ability to focus and delve into the depths of my emotions. It was as though my mind instinctively recoiled from confronting this perceived threat to my sense of security.

Intrigued by this revelation, I decided to employ a self-development technique that I often relied upon during moments of introspection. Placing my palm over my heart, I sought to tap into my innermost feelings and unravel the underlying reasons behind my fear of having money.

What I uncovered was a complex tapestry of beliefs, experiences, and conditioning that had shaped my relationship with money over the years. Deep-seated fears of inadequacy, guilt associated with wealth, and subconscious patterns of self-sabotage emerged from the recesses of my psyche, shedding light on the roots of my financial anxieties.

It became evident that my fear of having money was not merely a product of rational analysis but a deeply ingrained emotional response rooted in past traumas and societal influences. Unravelling these layers of fear required courage, introspection, and a willingness to confront uncomfortable truths about myself.

Yet, with each revelation came a sense of liberation—a recognition that by acknowledging and embracing my fears, I could begin to transcend them. Instead of viewing money as a source of fear and anxiety, I could reframe it as a tool for empowerment and abundance.

This journey of self-discovery taught me that true prosperity extends beyond material wealth—it encompasses a sense of inner peace, fulfilment, and alignment with one’s deepest values and aspirations. By confronting our fears and embracing the abundance that surrounds us, we open ourselves up to a world of infinite possibilities.

So, if you find yourself grappling with the fear of having money, I urge you to embark on your own journey of self-exploration. Peel back the layers of conditioning, confront your fears with compassion and curiosity, and embrace the inherent abundance that resides within you. In doing so, you may just discover that the universe has always held the key to your prosperity—it’s simply waiting for you to unlock it.

What were my beliefs, you ask? Well, the first thing that came to mind was that even if I get a lot of money, it is proven that I always lose what I care to have. This was deeply rooted in childhood trauma, stemming from my parents’ divorce and their relationship with money itself. Because if I have a lot of money, I will lose it on stupid things or someone will take it away from me. If I have a lot of money, my mom and dad will be wrong, and I never subconsciously want my parents to be wrong.

I recall a time when my parents, even though they were not together anymore, separately told me that due to the way I am, I will remain poor in life. Additionally, I believed that if I had a lot of money, I would be seen as a bad person for not sharing all of it with those in need, but rather making my life better. And I’m not a bad person, after all. So, I should share so everyone has an equal amount of money instead of me being rich and others suffering.

Growing up in a middle-class family, we couldn’t afford everything, and the notion that “money is the root of all evil” was deeply ingrained. To be rich, you needed to steal and manipulate. So, my subconscious continued to protect me from money because I didn’t want to be associated with evil.

These childhood subconscious programs were holding me back from enjoying abundance. Moreover, it became apparent that in my growing-up years, I didn’t have many choices when it came to shopping for things I wanted. My mother never really asked me what I would like. Instead, at her convenience and when she wanted, we would go on surprise shopping sprees to shops that she considered good for our shopping.

I had two choices: buy whatever was offered to me or buy nothing. But if I bought nothing in her preferred shop, this would mean I would be coming home empty-handed. This stored a subconscious program that instead of taking time to actually think of what I really liked and would like to wear, I would buy just anything so that I could own something new.

This created self-sabotage with money because of the fear that I wouldn’t be able to have something new. As a teenager, I really wanted to have new clothes and items I could show off. In my adult days, I spent money without thinking whether the item I was buying was something I truly liked, whether I would use it long-term, or whether I even wanted to invest my money into it.

Before every shopping trip during my adult years, I would be super excited. Then, if I didn’t find anything I wanted, I would either torture myself by walking around the same shops for hours on end or I would start to think that if I didn’t buy the item I wasn’t 100% sure about, I would regret it. Then, if I came back a few days later, it would be sold out.

Can you see how I jeopardized my own money? So, what happened next? Did I actually manage to change my relationship with money? Did I stop being afraid of having it? Of course! It took just a few sessions of subconscious reprogramming to not feel that fear of having money. Today, I see that having money is a blessing.

The more I have, the more I can create, and the more I can give. I simply love creating and giving.
