When we feel that we aren’t enough, or that we aren’t good enough, we also fear that we’ll never have enough. That fear is a self-fulfilling prophecy, in which we unconsciously make sure we never, ever have all that we need. It’s a painful arithmetic going on in the shadows of our unconscious, which many of us never even recognize.
We have to get to the root of the problem, and that means replacing those feelings of unworthiness with a stronger sense of self-worth. We have to do the internal work to right this distorted view of ourselves in order to experience the freedom of wealth in our lives. Until we do that, we’ll continue to subconsciously sabotage the very thing we’re longing for. Ouch!
Take the person who wins the lottery—and promptly loses every penny because she never did the inner work to feel comfortable having that much money. Or take me! I once took financial advice and invested money in a mutual fund, but I was so frightened that I watched the balance every day. Even though I knew how much the market could fluctuate, I got nervous and took all the money out before it could grow.
Once we’ve healed our internal wounds around worth, and we finally know we deserve good things, we open up to receiving more of what the universe has in store for us. We also change old behaviors that have gotten in our way. The more we believe in our worth, the less we’re willing to continue destructive patterns. We say, “Wait! I deserve better than that!”
We choose our limits based on what we’re worthy of having. When you know your worthiness can’t be given or taken away, you’ll know you are worthy of all you desire. Isn’t it time to replace feelings of unworthiness with a solid sense of your own value?!
