Many unhelpful habits are formed in childhood. The voices we hear become our internal voice. We know that our thoughts create our world and many healers suggest imagining our inner child and watching how you speak to them. We’d never purposely speak to a child in such a negative put-down way but yet we often catch ourselves in negative self-talk like, “why are such an idiot? You’re fat/ugly etc etc”.
Children are listening too and when we say things like, ‘ I better not have a piece of cake or I need to go to the gym/ I’m getting so old /We can’t afford that’, they are listening and taking it all in. Money blocks often come from our parents and if we want to open up the channels for abundance now and for our children’s future we need to clear these and watch how we talk about money. You can set a good example by watching the words you speak out loud and to yourself
The balance is speaking about money as abundant but still teaching children the value of it. How? Gratitude! Cultivate an attitude of gratitude and share it. “We’re so lucky to have this food/ clothes/ holiday. What are you thankful for today? The more you give, the more you receive etc. Just start to do one thing and see the difference it makes. This morning I found a random Korean (I think) coin. I felt so lucky;lucky lucky lucky. I remember reading that a study showed that people who felt lucky found money and people who felt unlucky never even saw it. So feel lucky, watch your words (internal and external) and practice gratitude. Share this with the little people in your life. X Yvette
