Yesterday, we assessed the Root Chakra and got a good idea of the nature of your energy; overactive, underactive, or cycling between the two.

Now, Today you’re going to clear out your Root Chakra and dispel those raggedy old money myths!

Let’s take a closer look at how your energy might attract certain popular money myths out there.

And we’ve all heard them, right?

“A penny saved is a penny earned.” You can imagine someone saying this would have root energy that is contracted and withholding; rigid.

“Money is the root of all evil.” This type of person uses moral justifications for their own fears around stepping into their own power and assuming personal authority; they prefer to remain contracted and victimized.

“No pain, no gain” and “Work hard, play hard.” These myths resonate with the person who also struggles with deservedness and worthiness. They are often overworked, exhausting themselves beyond what is necessary (or healthy), and then boomerang into “playing hard,” which is only a form of escapism (sometimes in the form of addictions, another indicator of Root Chakra imbalances).

We can see these myths are borne of either contracted or overtaxed energy patterning in the body and psyche. These myths evolved out of a scarcity attitude, suggesting that wealth and abundance can only be achieved through misery and a pound of flesh!

Or how about this one…

“Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Grant Cardone, business consultant and author of “The 10X Rule” says, “Money comes from a cotton bush, actually…But seriously, the concept that money is scarce is just not true. There is just a shortage of people going for money with courage and the right attitude.”

And our attitudes surrounding money are usually picked up from our parents, family, and friends. And its not always just what our parents say, but what they DO. What we OBSERVE. What we witness as children has a significant impact on our money myths.

What is your parents’ relationship to money?
* Did they clip coupons every Saturday?
* Always buy the generic brand?
* Give you hand-me-downs to wear?
* Say they couldn’t afford something, when you knew they could?
* Hold money over your head to make you do whatever they said?
* Make huge investments with the expectation that you would assume responsibility for it, when you got older?
* Spend money like they had it, when they didn’t?
* Always rely on other family members to bail them out?
* Refuse to ask for help, even when they really needed it?
* Try to buy your love with gifts?
* Steal from your sock drawer?

This is not to blame our parents or accuse them of anything, our parents probably did they best they could with what they had!

But it’s important to name and acknowledge what you might have adopted by osmosis, so that you can make a conscious choice about how much you want THEIR myths, to limit YOUR beliefs about what is POSSIBLE for your financial abundance, in this lifetime.

Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing, or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

Spiritual abundance and wealth coach Jenny Shiltz once said to

“If we replace the word ‘money’ with ‘energy’ everything begins to shift. Look at your life as existing in one bucket, and that bucket holds all your energy. If you allow the bucket to empty out, you will see many areas suffer. Relationships, finances, health…you cannot break your life up into these categories. Shift the focus and think, ‘How am I supporting me?’”

To support you in supporting yourself, we invite you to listen to this meditation, in which you’re going to be grounding in and clearing out any blockages, debris, and old stories that might be hanging out in your Root Chakra. (We’re going to be clearing those old cobwebs out, so-to-speak).

It’s time for these blocks to hit the road because they’re what’s keeping you from feeling grounded and safe, achieving your goals, and taking positive action on your manifesting your dreams, including financial abundance.

So find a comfortable space to relax and connect in with your Root Chakra.
