Money types represent archetypal patterns and behaviors that influence our daily decisions and emotions around money at an unconscious level. We all have them and everyone is invited to attend our upcoming webinar to learn more about the eight money types and the impact that they have on our choices and lives.
Not Your Personality
The money types are not your personality, nor are they fixed. They are not who you are, but where you are. We can change and transform our archetypal patterns by becoming more conscious and aware of their underlying drivers. For example, if you are an innocent archetype, you might have noticed that you have a tendency to have fear or anxiety relative to money that causes discomfort and possibly, even avoidance of the subject of money. That’s because the innocent archetype often felt disempowered and/or shut down relative to expressing their financial needs in childhood. They often felt confused about money and fearful of bringing up money in conversations or expressing their feelings.
As a result, in adulthood they may have developed patterns of avoidance or aversion that cause them to bury their heads in the sand because it’s associated past experiences long forgotten.
One of the things I’ve learned over the last 20 years doing this work is that almost everyone has some challenging emotions or behaviors relative to money. Since most of our patterns are locked in the subconscious mind, it is difficult for us to manage this domain effectively. In other words, if you are blind to a pattern, and cannot name it, you are powerless to change it. If you can learn to understand your money types and become aware of these underlying drivers, you begin to open the door to greater awareness, understanding and transformation. And who doesn’t want that, especially where money is concerned?
