When I was growing up, my mom always asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. For me, it was simple. I wanted to make the world a better place. Some of my ideas, such as saving the whales and working with children in remote villages in Africa, were not well received by my parents. As I got older, I recognized how important the topic of money was. My family and I were living just above the poverty line in California. I soon realized that we were living like most Americans— from paycheck to paycheck. I worked my way through college, thinking that it was the way to the financial freedom that I craved.
I graduated with a Business Administration degree in Finance and Marketing, with a personal pledge to help people create better lives for themselves financially. After working as a financial planner at an investment firm, I was not any further ahead than I was ten years before when I first started. I played the game, followed all the rules, and yet, it never seemed to work out. So I went on a quest to find that missing piece.
What I discovered that was holding me back was my personal beliefs that I had about money. I grew up with phrases like “money doesn’t grow on trees,” and “the love of money is the root of all evil,” and many others just like these. The investment world was not any different. It is a very fear-based place, especially when you are responsible for other people’s investments and those investors have similar belief structures. Over time, my path lead me to study how our subconscious mind works and how it created limiting beliefs. Then I discovered that the subconscious mind is reprogrammable, and has the ability to change those beliefs, and create new ones.
Belief structures are individual to each person that created them. Not everyone had the exact same experiences, but there are a lot of commonalities that we share. There are two main types of belief structures that we operate by. Beliefs have the ability to limit and restrict us, such as there is not enough money, or they have the ability to enhance and expand us, such as we have plenty. Most beliefs are formed about the age of 5 to 7, while we are dominantly in a theta brain wave. This is the subconscious brain wave pattern that records all of life’s experiences that we operate from. From 7 to 14, we shift to an alpha brain wave, where imagination takes over, and we “play out” the beliefs that we learned during our early childhood development.
To create an abundance mindset, we want to find and eliminate those limiting beliefs and then replace them with the expanding beliefs. True abundance is about knowing you can have it all—all at the same time. Some common beliefs of people who have an abundance mindset is that they:
• Believe that they have something to offer the world
• Believe that their gift is worth something
• Recognize that they’ve earned it
• Share their success with others
As a ThetaHealing coach, mentor, and instructor, I assist my clients and students through the process of creating their own personal abundance mindset, whether through wealth, relationships, or health. We discover what your personal limiting beliefs are that are holding you back, and through the simple meditation technique, rewire the subconscious brain to accept the new, positive abundance beliefs. Our thoughts are continually creating our reality, whether we are consciously aware of them or not. Together, we can make the world a better place!
