Mindful : October 2018
Create a safe, sacred space for this exploration. You may want to light a candle or pour yourself a cup of tea. Take your time. Move gently. Do a Body Check-In (page 48) before, during, and after. If you find yourself rushing, slow down. You may want to answer all of these questions at once, or you might insert a few moments or even days between each section. Explore with compassion and curiosity. Let this be an act of mindfulness and self-love. 2 VISUALIZE YOUR MONEY PAST Get centered in your body and take a few deep breaths. From this grounded, mature place, let your mind travel back into your childhood memo- ries. Look around, see your home and its surroundings. What did you learn about money, here? What beliefs did you receive? What decisions did you make? Do you recall others who had more or less money than you? What did you feel about that? Now, think about your family. What was your moth- er’s role, in terms of family finances? What messages did she give you about money, verbally and through her unspoken behavior and emotions? In what ways have you echoed her role or rebelled against it? Ask these same questions about your father, your grandparents, your siblings, and anyone else significant to you in your childhood. Did you receive messages about money from your religion, culture, or lineage? What were they? Trace the ups and downs of your life in relation to money. Did you experience any big financial successes or hard- ships? How have they affected you, your life, and how you relate to money? Visualize Your Money Story 1 DESCRIBE YOUR CURRENT RELATIONSHIP WITH MONEY It’s always best to begin in the present moment. Spend a few moments thinking or writing about your current relation- ship with money. How do you feel about earning, spending, saving, giving, borrowing, loaning, and receiving money? What feelings or memories do these activities stir within you? Slow down. Do you notice any beliefs, patterns, or conditions attached to these areas? 3 CONNECT THE DOTS BETWEEN PAST AND PRESENT How are you keeping the past alive in your relationship with money? Considering every- thing you were taught (and not taught) about money, how are you living out old or inher- ited beliefs, patterns, and stories? Have you repeated the past, rebelled against it, or struck out on your own? How is your past Money Story affecting your relation- ships with your parents, sib- lings, friends, boss, clients, or larger community? How does it show up in your self-talk, in your behaviors, and in your thoughts about the future? 46 mindful October 2018
