You've read about the ACE (Adverse Childhood Experience) study. The higher your ACE score the higher the the chance of social risk factors, mental health issues, substance abuse, intimate partner violence and adoption of risky adult behaviors which can cause lifelong consequences.
Now I’m here to share with you a quote: “How You Do Anything is How You Do Everything” by the author of the book and workshop series Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth by T Harv Ecker.
The ACES Study and Money? Are you crazy Gwen? What in the heck would my adverse childhood experiences have to do with my money situation?
Well, let’s take a look:
If your house is a mess chances are pretty good that your relationships are a mess too and your job or career is a mess, your health is most likely a mess and when it comes to your finances there is a pretty good chance that you are also very unorganized and a mess.
If you tend to procrastinate in one area of your life, it’s a pretty sure bet that you also procrastinate in all the other areas of your life too. Or if you are fearful in one area of your life… and so on and so on…
We do EVERYTHING based on our internal beliefs — even money!
The core of our internal beliefs are actually the automatic programs that were taught to us or we learned at a very young age based on our early childhood experiences. There are definitely helpful programs that we learned like automatically brushing our teeth, getting dressed, eating our breakfast and tying our shoes first thing every morning. It wouldn’t be very productive to have to re-learn to do those things over every morning.
However, many of those programs are no longer serving us like being messy, procrastinating and being afraid – even our money beliefs! When we are able to become consciously aware of how much those old emotional programs are keeping us stuck from living our strongest lives, that’s when we are ready to do something about them.
As T Harv says, “if you want to get rid of procrastination you have to replace it with something better” and he talks about affirmations. Training your brain to think differently so you get different results. However, affirmations are a thinking process in our conscious mind that controls only 5% of our perception and behavior. Our beliefs are thoughts we continue to think in our sub-conscious mind, and we aren’t consciously aware of them but they control 95% of our perception and behavior!
Our conscious and sub-conscious mind:
Our conscious mind (above the water line) controls ONLY 5% of our perception and behavior. However, the sub-conscious mind (below the water line) controls 95% of our perception and behavior. THAT’S where ALL the beliefs live, both supportive and limiting. And we are working with both with EFT Tapping.
