Healing Your Relationship with Money

How's your relationship with money?

How’s your relationship with money?

It’s that time of year again and everyone is talking about love and relationships. Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

Although it may not seem like it first, your relationship with money and your current romantic relationship (or most recent one) are VERY connected and say a lot about each other.

For starters, let me ask you this: Did you even know that you HAVE a relationship with money?

It may not be the type of relationship you want, but you definitely have one!

We are in relationship with almost everything in life: other people, ourselves, our bodies, our homes, our finances, our thoughts, etc. Relationships are at the heart of life, and the quicker you heal your relationship with money, the quicker your other relationships will change as well.

How you do one thing is how you do everything, which means that as you shift your relationship with money it will also shift your romantic relationships, and vice versa.


Your Current Relationship with Money

Let’s imagine that money were a person (let’s say a man) and you’re in a relationship with him.

Really think about your relationship with money. Again, if money were a person, what would that relationship look like in your life?

Take out a piece of paper and describe your current relationship with money.

Write down things like how it shows up for you, how you treat it and how it treats you, how you feel about it, etc.

At this point, most women I work with say things like:

He’s never there for me.

He’s always leaving.

He’s never enough.

I never know when he’s coming home.

He comes and goes.

He only pays the bills, but never buys me anything special.

I can’t trust him or depend on him.

He’s not very reliable.

What did you write down? How do you feel about your relationship with money?

Now, back to a real man…

Do you think this man would stick around if you were constantly telling him he’s not there for you, he’s not enough, he’s not around, he’s always leaving, etc.?

Probably not. In fact, that man would not want to stick around AT ALL!

Men want to be appreciated, and so does money.

They’re really no different.

And this might explain why your relationship with money is what it is!

Yes, you are in an actual relationship with money and chances are you may not have been the best partner to money all these years.

Also, think about relationships you’ve had in your own life with men (or women). In particular, think about your current or most recent romantic relationship.

What similarities do you notice? Do the two types of relationships resemble one another?

Usually, they do! Because as I mentioned above, “How you do one thing is how you do everything.” The way you relate to one thing in your life is typically similar to how you will relate to something else.

The good news is, as you heal one area of your life the other areas will shift as well!

Changing Your Relationship with Money

Just as in real-life relationships, the only person you can change is YOU. You can try to change and control the other person as much as you want, but ultimately real change can only come from you.

Therefore, in order to shift and heal your relationship with money you must begin with YOURSELF.

To start, ask yourself what your IDEAL relationship with money would look like and write that down, just like you did above.

Ask yourself: How would money show up for you? How would it treat you? How would you treat it? How would you feel about it, in general?

Next, know that one of the easiest ways to change your relationship to money, QUICKLY, is to change your energy around money.

Since money is simply energy, we can change our energy and our money will also change.

Now, go back to the exercise we did above and notice all the things you typically say to money.

You probably say things like, “You’re not really there for me, you’re not enough, I can’t afford that thing I really want because of you, you’re preventing me from being happy, etc.”

Again, think about what a man in real life would feel if you were constantly telling him he wasn’t enough or not really there for you.

He would be resentful, angry, and might even leave for good!

We don’t want that to happen, so let’s begin changing how YOU show up for money.

You can begin treating money with love, appreciation, and adoration, just like you would with a man you were in a {healthy} relationship with in real life.

You can tell it things like:

Thank you for always being here for me.

Thank you for paying my bills, providing me with heat and electricity, and providing delicious food for me.

Thank you for putting a roof over my head.

Thank you for always showing up for me, every time I need you.

Thanks for being so reliable, dependable, and trust-worthy.

Thanks for always doing what you say you will.

You can begin saying these things right now, no matter how much money you have!

The fact that you are reading this blog on a phone or computer means you already have MUCH more money than you probably realize!

What are some other ways you can begin to show money more love and respect?

How can you demonstrate to money that you’re there for it the way you want it to be there for you?

Remember, money wants to be appreciated, respected, and adored just like a real man (or woman) would.

Money is just energy, so as YOU shift in relationship to it, it will shift in relationship to you!
