Sometimes we have to look at the stories from our past in order to manifest in the present. We may need to examine limiting thoughts before we feel deserving of abundance and happiness. If this sounds true for you, maybe you need to de-clutter your past to manifest your future.
One area that I personally had trouble with was manifesting prosperity. I would do all the affirmations, visualize, but, still felt blocked. So I decided I needed to look at and let go of the limiting beliefs and stories from my childhood.
I grew up in a middle-class family. We always had food on the table, clothes to wear, and great times. However, my parents always worried about money. My Mom, especially, felt there was never enough. Both of them grew up in the Great Depression, so, this viewpoint was quite understandable. We were told that you had to work hard and save.
This was definitely a story from my past that needed cleaning up. It still affected me by a fear of not having enough money. These are thoughts and I can change my thoughts and face this fear.
Do you have any limiting beliefs about money from your youth?
Do any of these resonate with you?
