Did You Manifest That Money, Or Is It Your Privilege?

By special request from a number of readers, let’s unpack some New Age teachings regarding money. One frustrated reader who asked me to write about this said, “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from a coach or healer that if I just commit or pray or surrender or vision, ‘the money will show up.’ It feels so abusive to me – and it encourages financial irresponsibility, especially for those who are not wealthy and truly cannot afford it.

Oh, except we’re not supposed to say that, are we? We’re supposed to come up with a verbal workaround because heaven forbid we should say something negative and thereby create it! Then if the money doesn’t show up, you’re shamed for not being invested/ committed/ surrendered enough, for not having done your work, for not being “whatever” enough. And then they promote the idea that money is ‘just energy,’ that it’s not ‘real’ It really devastates people who are on lower incomes who really need the help and then go into debt in order to get physical/ emotional/ spiritual/ financial healing (that may or may not actually help solve the problem).”

Gosh, how many times have we all heard this! So let’s unpack it with nuance. First, I think it’s true that many people have trauma around money from legitimate scarcity and poverty in childhood. It can be terrifying and devastating to young children to go hungry or watch Mom and Dad get evicted or get humiliated by other kids for wearing old, worn out, hand-me-down clothes. Those traumas, if left untreated, can lead to constellations of limiting beliefs around money that can impact our financial lives for our whole lives. That is true. It’s also true that treating those traumas around poverty can unburden those parts that get mired in scarcity thinking in adulthood, have trouble asking for or receiving help (from other people, from God, from government aid, etc.), or overspend or go into debt to overcompensate from past poverty and then feel entitled to getting bailed out. So in this way, our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings do impact our money, and changing how we think and feel about money (by getting really good trauma treatment) and educating ourselves about financial responsibility can mature our relationship to money.
