Here’s another family rule that might sound familiar:
We don’t need a lot of money.
I grew up with this one. It includes a ton of other unvoiced statements.
We don’t need a lot of money because:
– We are really good at doing well with little.
– We don’t want to be rich because rich people are bad.
– We are better than those ugly, bad rich people.
– We treat the environment better by not buying so much junk.
– We don’t want the limelight.
– We are goodie goodie people because we live frugally.
See that there is an entire world view behind that little family rule?
And that makes it difficult to go beyond it. Because the moment you start earning money with your books, and have more than that little amount of money that’s enough to survive on – you’re breaking a family rule.
And you risk being cast out.
There are powerful mechanisms at work inside yourself to prevent that.
Under their influence you might – subconsciously – sabotage yourself from writing, publishing and selling books.
Here’s some tapping to get you started on shifting that rule. That way, you can find permission to earn more money and still remain a full member of your family system.
Even though my family has a rule about how much money I and we are allowed to earn and have, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to give myself permission to have more money and still be a good family member.
Even though we have this unspoken rule about money, and it has prevented me from being successful financially, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now give myself permission to acknowledge that rule – and to let it go.
Even though we have this family tradition of living on little money, and it has been handed down through generations, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I now choose to shift that tradition, lift the rule and make it possible for my entire family to earn and have more money.
Did this family rule resonate with you?
How did that feel?
What happened while you were tapping?
And finally – what are you writing right now?
Would love to hear from you!
