IDENTITY / SELF ESTEEM BELIEFS
Many of our negative money beliefs stem from having a poor self esteem. You need to address money beliefs at root causes, otherwise you would have largely missed addressing them at the right areas. Working on self-love issues opens you to receiving abundance more freely into your life. The entire process of working on yourself may sound tedious but just remember this: Thoughts of unworthiness will not be able to attract the same vibrational frequency of money, essentially a spiritual asset and a form of energy exchange.
