If you are ready to shift from scarcity and struggle to embrace the next level of prosperity, here are some clues as to where you are at and how to distinguish your progress on the prosperity mindset scale. Every level is directly linked to a particular income and lifestyle level.
Can you match which income level correlates to each money mindset level listed?
Yuppee, our money mindset is directly linked to how much money + investments is in our bank account at the end of each month and that means not just how much money we are making. It’s directly linked to how much money we bring in minus the money we spend on essentials, needs and comfort, how much of it we give away and let go of, plus how much we are willing to invest in our growth.
Very importantly how much energy and other resources we have available to live and enjoy the lifestyle we desire. We may have all the money we think we want, but if we are energetically spent by the end of each day, unfulfilled and empty, or not holding on to the harmonious, equal, and loving relationships that most matter to us, this is also a huge direct representation of our prosperity mindset level we are vibrating at.
3 Critical Clues You Are NOT Choosing to Shift from Scarcity to Prosperity (LEVEL 1)
1. Economy is to blame
It must be the recession, many critical responsibilities and daily dramas that require your attention that are to blame. You truly believe this, have created many stories to justify attachment to working-hard-for-your-money consciousness, and likely designed your whole life in order to accommodate for the scarcity of money, time, energy, health, harmony, opportunities, and luck. This attachment of course serves, because it makes it easier for your ego-mind to survive another year of status quo busy-ness. Whoever said we were ready at this point to step into our purpose, commit to a visible result, and thrive anyway? [Alternative: We could choose to be ready though, but have we been given a “permission slip” just yet?]
2. “I am a survivor” story.
“I am a survivor” or “I am tough” story is a scarcity-based story because it no longer serves your most optimal self-expression. It was very relevant back then when you were facing the immediate danger of having to defend from abuse or bullying, or war, or danger, however a survivor story can keep people stuck in a victim mentality and existential anxiety for years after the immediate danger to health and safety is no longer present.
A part of you may be convinced that, since you have survived, this alone already makes you worthy of God’s love, therefore who needs all the ease and abundance in life when I am a good-hearted survivor and fighter, right? As long as I am a good person, and seen that way, all is well. And if God who cares about me really exists, perhaps he will send someone to rescue me anyway (e.g. a large windfall of inheritance, an unexpected gift from God/Savior/Prince Charming, a large payout I deserve and am overdue for, etc.)
3. Choosing fear vs. freedom from fear.
If your mind is fearful of hearing the truth that you are free to create your rich and fulfilling life today, after everything you have overcome, then you are stuck in scarcity and not ready to claim your free life just yet. This fear-based mindset will serve you until it longer does, and when it no longer does, you will know because it will become clearly evident to you that something radically has to shift. And that something is not the economy, or your boss, people around you, but primarily you, your money mindset. (When that happens, you are ready to move on to Level 2).
The word “investment” makes you cringe, just as does the word “money” or “joy” or “wealth” or “true love” or “riches” or “wellbeing” or “massage” or “fitness”, even “happiness”, “highest potential”, “integrity”, “personal responsibility”, “consistent results”, “joyful success”, “vacation” or “time and financial freedom”. Especially when it’s other people’s.
In the meantime, bring light and truth to your needs for a quick fix of escape therapy – whether it is spiritual, entertainment, social, or shopping therapy, and unwillingness to ask for expert help + letting in more support consistently.
3 Clues You Are Ready to RELEASE Scarcity Mindset (LEVEL 2)
You are ready to release the pain and victimhood mentality, and you feel “there’s got be a better way”. Your close friends and immediate family tend to manifest a lot of relationship and health emergencies, so that your schedule is well-filled with rescuing others from a crisis after crisis. There is hardly anyone who hears your pain or needs anymore, because as soon as you start talking about you, the story shifts to all about them. Of course, since you are not comfortable asking for help in the first place, setting healthy boundaries, or asking for what you truly need, who can blame others for picking up on your telepathic signal that says: “I am a superwoman and don’t need anyone’s real help. Bring it on, everyone, the energy shop is open for free business!”.
You are confident in your talent, however unsure whether you have what it takes to make it happen in the “real world” in the long run, whether you are truly wired for a lasting success, and whether the Universe’s got your back to see you thrive and happy for a lifetime, even beyond what you hope or imagine.
3. “Who do you think you are?” story.
The prospect of living a freedom-based lifestyle excites you but your mind keeps repeating “but what if you fail” or “but what if you succeed in this and fail at that”, therefore you keep believing that all those amazing things are reserved for a special bunch who has earned some good karma, or was born into it, or were randomly lucky, and you are not special enough to claim it for yourself for longer than one lucky break or opportunity. You want to give yourself a permission to invest in yourself but the money is likely not there, or it is there however it has no permission to move in direction of a worthwhile investment – you and/or your business. It has your explicit permission to move in direction of expenses and money drains, both fixed and abundantly variable, which appear to be increasing by day. Why? Because your ego-mind is realizing you are ready to shift, and will amp up any scarcity programs that can prevent you from reaching the next “unknown” level.
Perhaps you invest annually half of what feels comfortable to receive guidance from someone who you feel likely knows more than you do and who appears to have walked the path you would love to embark on. However, you tend to choose guidance that doesn’t require you to take 100% responsibility for your life just yet. You give your power away to your destiny and others who appear to know better, because you are unsure when you will be willing to make a conscious choice, commit to a path, and take consistent or any action in alignment with it. You prefer to believe that there is a destiny of largely pre-determined consequences.
3 Clues You Are ALMOST Ready to Embrace Abundance & Prosperity Mindset (LEVEL 3)
1. Tolerating discomfort. Your tolerance for accommodating discomfort in your life due to misalignment with your purpose is now lower than it was last year. You have done some great inner work in the last 12 months and beyond, however you have learned how to cope with making it through a working week without feeling the dread of not living your purpose, not making the impact that you know you are here to make, and not earning your worth. [Once that Happy Friday or that “day off” can’t come soon enough, that’s a huge sign from your soul your tolerance for discomfort is getting very low and you are sooo ready to embrace what feels better, the next level of prosperity.]
2. Fear to disappoint. The fear that you will disappoint or alienate those who love you, or that you will be burdened in some way for having it all, is now lower than 10 but still greater than your willingness to thrive.
3. Willingness to thrive. Your willingness to thrive is high, it may be 7 or even 8, however the fear – that you will disappoint or alienate your loved ones or friends, or that you will be burdened by undesired responsibilities, or even worse have what you most love be somehow taken away from you, that fear may still be 9 or 10, in which case right now you are choosing the lifestyle that needs to prove your fears right. This is because you are most emotionally devoted to that particular fear-based belief, which is therefore given almost unlimited power to rule your life. You are almost ready to shift to creating your ultimate lifestyle but not quite ready for a breakthrough, your mind says. [This is your time, your soul says, but the ego still feels almost-ready.]
You invest periodically and exactly the equivalent of what feels comfortable, or slightly less of what your spouse, family, or the invisible inner critic would approve of, to receive guidance from someone who has hopefully walked the path you are embarking on or at least may share a useful insight or two. The breakthrough is right in front of you, waiting to be chosen, however you may feel it is close yet constantly out of reach. What is going on, you wonder, how much more do I need to shift to deserve a rich life?
3 Clues You Are READY to Embrace Wealth Consciousness (LEVEL 4)
1. Choosing ease, joy, wellbeing, and abundance as a way of being
You are no longer prepared to struggle, undercharge, undervalue yourself, and work hard for your money in order to evolve. You are willing to do what it takes to create your own luck. This means managing your energy and mindset daily, designing the life you truly desire, and taking consistent action to manifest it. It also means being more strategic about how you leverage your time, money, and your energy. You associate with people who embrace abundance mindset and who live a well-balanced life in service to others. You are ready, willing, and committed to apply and share all your practical wisdom and divine gifts and talents, without another moment wasted in giving your power away to distractions and excuses. [Our loved ones and friends will always need our attention, but the question is who is the creator of our life, we or not-we; and who is responsible for other’s wellbeing and happiness?].
Your tolerance for struggle, dysfunctional drama, wasteful spending as well as scarcity behaviour, is very low and you are ready to embrace ease, joy, and abundance today! You are willing to make consistent effort and create abundant consistent results most harmoniously.
You are no longer prepared to give most of your work away for free in order to prove that you are a good person, that you are needed, and in order to fit in the salary bracket of people who always blame outside circumstance for why they can’t create abundance: government, their spouse, their children, their lack, life emergencies. [Giving back is important but when it becomes excessive and starts perpetuating or proving your martyrdom or scarcity story of lack of money, time, and energy in your life, this is a clue you need to shift your money mindset another vibrational level up.]
2. Living your purpose and making more impact
You are ready to step into your purpose fully and the thought of living another month, never mind a year, tolerating a job or a career that is not a full expression of your purpose makes you want to make a conscious choice, take inspired action and create aligned results today and every day!
3. Daily choice, daily effort, daily decision. You are choosing abundance and wellbeing on every level and in all areas of your life. You are also well-aware that this has to be a conscious choice, thus daily choosing and embodying what you want to create, and releasing distractions. This includes consciously and intentionally choosing to stay present in your body for your day-to-day life. You make 2-3 conscious decisions every day that will activate a greater flow of abundant aligned results in your life and business.
You monthly invest in your growth and business 2-3 times more than your ego feels comfortable with and you work with a mentor who has successfully walked the path you are embarking on. You are here to make a huge impact in lives of other people, create a lasting wealth and most optimal wellbeing. Your tolerance for discomfort is very low, while your tolerance for uncertainty, freedom and magical possibilities is high. You are ready to create a prosperous life and business you love. Congratulations!
