Recognising your money blocks involves self-awareness and introspection.    Here are steps to help you identify and understand these blocks:

1. Self-Reflection: Begin by reflecting on your beliefs and emotions related to money. Consider how you feel about earning, spending, and saving. Are there any negative or anxious feelings associated with money?

2. Childhood and Family Influence: Examine your upbringing and early experiences with money. Did your family have certain attitudes or beliefs about wealth and financial success? These early influences can shape your money mindset.

3. Limiting Beliefs: Pay attention to recurring thoughts or beliefs that may be holding you back. For example, beliefs like "I'm not good with money" or "Money is the root of all evil" can be limiting.

4. Emotional Responses: Notice your emotional reactions to financial situations. Are you anxious about bills, stressed about debt, or fearful of investing? These emotional responses can indicate underlying money blocks.

5. Patterns of Behavior: Review your financial behaviors and habits. Are you consistently overspending, avoiding financial discussions, or struggling to save? Identify any patterns that may be detrimental to your financial well-being.

6. Fear of Success or Failure: Sometimes, the fear of success can be as limiting as the fear of failure. Ask yourself if you have an aversion to success and the responsibilities that come with it, or if you're afraid of failing in your financial endeavors.

7. Comparison: Are you constantly comparing yourself to others, especially when it comes to wealth and material possessions? This can reveal feelings of inadequacy or a scarcity mindset.

8. Procrastination: Procrastinating on financial decisions or avoiding money-related tasks can be a sign of money blocks. Ask yourself why you're delaying these actions.

9. Lack of Financial Goals: If you don't have clear financial goals or a vision for your financial future, it could be an indicator that you're not fully aligned with your financial potential.

10. Physical Symptoms: Some people experience physical symptoms when confronted with financial stress, such as tension, headaches, or stomach issues. Recognise these physical cues.

11. Resistance to Change: If you find yourself resisting changes or opportunities that could improve your financial situation, it may be due to money blocks.

12. Seek Professional Help: Sometimes, deep-seated money blocks may require the assistance of a therapist, counselor, or financial coach who specialises in helping individuals overcome financial and emotional challenges.

13. Journaling: Keeping a money journal can be a valuable tool. Write about your financial experiences, thoughts, and emotions regularly. This can help you uncover recurring patterns.

Once you recognise your money blocks, you can work on addressing them, whether through self-help techniques, professional guidance, or a combination of both. Understanding these blocks is the first step toward transforming your relationship with money and achieving financial well-being. In my experience, when it comes to tackling money blocks, it's often a monumental challenge to go it alone. I speak from personal experience because I, too, needed assistance.

What I've witnessed in working with clients is that, no matter how well-equipped you may be with tools and knowledge, there's a profound gap between where you are and where you aspire to be financially. Sometimes, that journey is entirely uncharted territory for you. This is precisely why having someone by your side is not just valuable; it's utterly crucial. They hold the vision for you, but they also serve as a steady pillar for your nervous system and emotions. They create a secure space for you to heal and expand in ways you might not accomplish on your own.
