Money is a flow. When it flows uninhibited, there is no stress. We will identify the thoughts that get in the way of this uninhibited flow of money. As always, listen and do the exercises along with the group. You should have a list of stressful thoughts to question by the end of this lesson.

Action Step – Questioning Thoughts About Asking for and Receiving Money

Extra Work (Optional)

Now that you questioned one of the statements from you Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet, you may want to question more of them. For many worksheets, I like to question almost all of them, or at least turn them around. Do this on your own using the One-Belief-at-a-Time Worksheet in written form or with a friend.

For future reference, download the Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheet here.
