FEAR OF LACK/SCARCITY MINDSET
A Scarcity mindset is when you are so obsessed with a lack of something, usually time or money, that you can’t seem to focus on anything else no matter how hard you try. (www.webmd.com)
I’m obsessed with lack of money. I can admit it now. I’m always thinking of ways to make money and also ways of not spending it!
MY Story – We are an average family with two grownup kids and us retired pensioners. I come from an a post war family where things were tight, not going without, but nothing to spare. I don’t remember being anxious about money as a child but soon came to realize that if I wanted something I had to earn it. So from the age of 11 I worked at the stables to earn rides, did a paper round, made and sold rosewater and so on. After beginning full time work all went calm, I had enough.
My fear of lack reasserted itself big time after retirement. Straight away there was always something needing money like the car breaking down, the electric garage door stopped working, the dishwasher conked out. Money always going out and never coming in. Then COVID arrived. My eldest son works in Thailand and very dependent on tourists. No work, no money, Bank of Mum and Dad steps up and now two years later we are still stepping up. For us there is no money for extras and I started worrying about my future as in old. No money to look after myself or if I needed a home. Worrying about my sons future as he will have nothing (in my mind). My obsession with fear of lack really kicked in. Plan after plan, research after research, all to find ways of making money from home, all coming to zilch! Now of course we have the energy price hike making all fearful including no. 2 son. So here I am thinking we will have to help him too. Panic – I applied for a job! At 68. Thankfully didn’t get it but this action made realize the obsession with making money had overtaken me. Not only was it bringing me right down but I had become BORING. Never talking or thinking about anything else. Researcher Sal to the rescue.
I found G. P. Walsh he is a Master of Spirituality and an EFT Practitioner. He speaks wise words and the tapping script was as if he knew me . I have worked with with the fear of lack video as well as the I am not safe video for 10 days now and feel so much calmer. Links below
I know this will not stop me planning and scheming as I have done it all my life but you never know I just might find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and I now realize that I am lucky to have what I have.
G P Walsh I have never felt safe in my life. This is the first time I have come across anyone dealing with this.
