Let’s take a moment to acknowledge that money is important. We need it to pay our bills, keep a roof over our heads, and feed our families. That said, it shouldn’t control you, or your happiness.
We form feelings around money just like everything else in our lives. We chase it or fear it. It can make us feel powerful or completely disempowered. But why?

Let’s dive into repatterning money and how to change your relationship with it.

Before you can change your relationship with money, you’ll need to understand the root issue that causes your actions or feelings.
Here are some examples:
  • Growing up in an unstable financial situation
  • Having a spouse who would overspend and increase the family’s debt
  • Never really learning about money and debt and not understanding how it works
  • Someone close to you has/had a spending addiction
  • Being exposed to greed, a friend, spouse, or family member hoarded money
  • Cultural and religious experiences “Money is the root of all evil.”
Once you figure out the root of the issue, you can address your feelings and actions. You’ll break the bad decision cycles, and move into a better mindset and financial situation.

Learn how to set your “Money Ceiling and Money Floor.”

Knowing how much money you need versus what you do and how much you make can help to change your feelings about your financial situation. Not having anxiety when bills are due, or knowing that everything will be fine will not only improve your mental state, it will also improve your overall wellbeing.

Money has NO bearing on your happiness.

“Oh, I don’t care about money,” or “I don’t need money to be happy” sounds like something only the wealthy would say, but that’s just not true. As you start to use a whole-brain approach in your life and with money, you’ll see that money is a tool, just like a pencil or hammer. Sure, you need those tools, but they don’t make you happy or unhappy (unless you accidentally hit your finger with the hammer…).

What’s your Money Identity?

One of the most powerful things you can do to support yourself with money is to identify your money identity.
For example, do you believe that without money, people won’t respect you? Do you think that rich people are more intelligent than others?
If you believe that money changes who you are, you become trapped in a money identity.
As mentioned earlier, money ought to be a tool; when we give it more power than it has, we position it as an identity, and it alters our view of self.

You may not believe this, but I struggled with money before I learned about repatterning and created my whole-brain repatterning programs. I had a lot of negative feelings about it. Applying the repatterning approach to my financial issues has been one of the best things I ever did. Now that I don’t worry about it, I can focus on important things like building my courses and business, spending time with my family and most of all, just being me, and as a result, money flows optimally in and out of my life as needed.
