Working on relationship with money.


I had a client today who came to work on her relationship with money. While working with her, I realized that I have a large set of exercises, some of which I collected from my teachers, and some I invented myself while working with my clients on the topic of money. I decided to share one of them with the community:

The exercises I did with today’s client were as follows:

  • Write down the names of up to eight of your older relatives who influenced you the most throughout your childhood.

  • Write down the messages they gave you in your childhood about money.

  • Identify the messages that influenced you the most and write them down.

  • Examine how all these different pieces of advice affected your relationship with money.

  • Imagine that those characters formed a "work team" and see if they can effectively collaborate.

  • Create a mandala that reflects a harmonious collaborative atmosphere between those inner roles.

As a result of this exercise, my client discovered two contradicting messages she received from her family. The first message was: "Don't worry about money; it's not important. Embrace life creatively, and money will come from the Universe." The second message was: "Money can only come from hard work."

We engaged in role-play with the characters who conveyed these messages, and they became oppositional, engaging in a conflict. During the session, we found a way to balance both roles and foster a positive relationship between them. To remember the insights from this work, my client drew a beautiful, well-balanced, and powerful mandala. Based on my past experiences with myself, my friends, and my clients, I believe it will help her integrate these new energies into her life and her relationship with money.

Moving forward with joy and curiosity! Terrapia.org
