Improve Your Relationship with Money

Written by: Nick Ortner

If money were an actual person, how would you describe your relationship? 

Would you say you have a good or bad relationship? Do you feel like it treats you well or that it abandons you? How has money treated you throughout your life? Do you feel good when you think about money or do you cringe at the thought of it?

We tend to have pretty strong opinions and feelings when it comes to money. Sometimes they’re conscious, but very often they’re unconscious, and it’s not until we start to think about that relationship that we see how we really feel.

I want to share a great tap-along video with you today, recorded by my brother Alex. He just created this for our Tapping Insiders Club, but we decided to make it available to everyone to get a taste of what Club Members get every week! 🙂

So if you want to shift your relationship with money, go check out this video below, tap-along with him, and make sure to try the simple exercise that I think could completely shift your relationship with money!

Until next time,

Keep Tapping!

    As I grabbed my card this morning to pay for yet another bit of software to invest in for my online business (which is in it’s infancy) I felt an overwhelming sense of resentment towards having to pay.

    My relationship with money has always been tumultuous, due to my relentless behaviour of spending more than I earn, as has always been my pattern.

    As I journalled this – tears streaming – I couldn’t understand why I felt resentful towards money, when in fact it has always showed up for me even when I hadn’t yet event it.
    I guess I have regrets about all those times I spent when I didn’t deserve it. The greed in me.

    I knew this was a great opportunity to release this energy which had emerged so clearly & searched for a tapping video to help.

    I came across yours & felt so much better by the end.

    I particularly love the thank you note concept & feel the urge to write thank you on all my notes & bank cards!

    Thank you so much for your help. ?

      That’s wonderful, Katy! Thanks for sharing! This may also be an opportunity for you to explore where this resentment might be coming from. One area to look is from childhood. What was your family’s money situation back then? 🙂

    Thank you for the insights, Alex. Tapping brought up my relationship with my father and his telling me I was not good with money early in my adult life. I realized I let money fall through my fingers, and then I hold on too tightly and deprive myself what I need. In this pattern I question my worth and my ability to make decisions around money. It’s like I’m afraid to move forward, like walking on eggshells. This reflects my childhood relationship with my father. I also saw that accepting my worthiness is key here. And that I need to see what I have to offer and value that. I also see that I need to feel grateful for everything I do have in my life, gratitude, gratitude, gratitude. And the next step will be revealed to me regards how to earn an income right now. More tapping is required on my part. Oh, and I need to let go criticism and stop invalidating myself. Phew! Thank you for opening my eyes here, Alex. Blessings to you and your family.

    Awesome exercise! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I’m definitely going to implement that into my daily routine.

  4. Vaughn says:

    I just realized by doing this that my relationship with money is similar to the relationship with my father. He was never around. I almost started crying. I’m going to do this everyday for awhile and see what else comes up. Thank you for providing this.

    • Nick Ortner says:

      That’s such a great insight, Vaughn. We often think think money is just some object “out there” to obtain, but it really is a personal relationship for all of us. I’m glad this tapping was able to help. 🙂

  5. Sherri says:

    Thankyou Alex ! Thankyou Nick, for sending me this. While I’m new at all this, I was able to tap along with this (subject of money) and I actually feel a positive outcome from it! Thankyou very much.

  6. Bethanie says:

    I realized that money for me represents a father or supportive figure. My father was in the military and absent much of the time, and when he was home, he was “absent” much of the time…

    • Nick Ortner says:

      That’s a great insight, Bethanie. It’s a good place to apply some more tapping to release those memories and emotions. -Alex

  7. Joyce says:

    Powerful! I will be revisiting this video to tap along with you to improve my relationship with money. You cut right to the core! Thank you!!

  8. Barbara says:

    Interesting concept, Alex. I’m going to try it and see what happens.
    BTW, could you speak more slowly/allow more time to repeat what you say when you are tapping? Thanks.

    • Nick Ortner says:

      That’s great, Barbara! Thanks for the suggestion – I just get so excited when sharing these ideas. 😀

  9. Chanine Naidoo says:

    I was suprosed over the anger I had towards money..then tears… thank you very much Alex. This was awsome and the most deep for me..I have been tapping along with all the videoes.

  10. Sandi says:

    What a gr8 tapping session. Thank you Alex. I have always had a problem with money, getting it in the first place and keeping it in the second. I could always help others get it – just not me. As I was ‘feeling’ about money I realised that I have substituted money as a representative for mother, who abused me in every possible way from as early as 8 months of age. The words you used abandonment, hurt, disappointment, not worthy, along with mine of helplessness, powerlessness, shame and the issue of not being able to trust money all are projections – safe ones – for me. Just having that as a recognition is fantastic. So thank you Alex, I am sending you a ‘virtual’ dollar so I can thank you and help you towards your billion !

    • Alex Ortner says:

      Thanks for the virtual dollar Sandi! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the tapping and that if gave you some ahas.

    I tap with my eyes closed to keep from getting distracted in my environment… this is not a video I can use, but I’ll suggest to others!

  12. JENN Tutton says:

    Thanks Alexi will now work on loosing my fear of losing money.

  13. Monika says:

    Thank U Alex & Nick I appreciate your work.
    I enjoyed the tapping and I am grateful. Lovely greetings from Switzerland

  14. Sandra says:

    Interestingly enough, what came up for me was around a personal relationship. This relationship has been in conflict. I realized how any resistance whether it is a relationship with money, food or a person requires the same shift to smooth out the associated negative emotion that I have attached to it. This tapping session helped me to align with many things at once. Thank you.
