fear of money caused by child abuse

Many of us have negative beliefs about money, and this prevents us from manifesting a lot of money in our lives. But we are comfortable with enough money to live well, although we dont become wealthy.

But there are some of us that fear money so much that we avoid it. Doing something for money is a very stressful experience for us. We avoid it whenever possible. When we have it we feel more secure because we can buy what we need. But we will let it run low, or even run out, because of our fear of getting more. We stay very poor, often requiring financial help from government or others, even though it is very stressful to receive that help. We are likely to struggle with money all our lives. We may become homeless or destitute or commit suicide. Our lives are very difficult.

This belief about money, this strong fear, is caused by a trauma associated with money. An example of such trauma is child prostitution. For those of us who experienced being sold to adults for sex, we associate money with an impending awful experience. Getting money means getting raped. Getting money means we must do something that we wish to die to avoid. In that childhood experience, the payment comes first and is often not concealed from us. In ritual abuse it is important that we see the money being paid, because the intention is to make us afraid of money.

To recover from this fear, we can use different techniques to uncover and grieve away the fear. It is not easy to do this, but it means that live can become livable. There are some online resources and within these are described ways of healing that help.
