From Poverty to Freedom

A poverty mindset transcends a lack of finances and resources. This article is NOT about people classified as financially poor according to societal standards. 

Overall, a poverty mindset is a limiting thought about one’s self-worth and ability to create what one desires. 

And you don’t have to be financially poor to experience this. 

As with all mindsets, it is a learned behavior that we model from childhood or as a way to deal with life experiences.

Sometimes suffering a significant loss can trigger a poverty mindset, resulting in a person forming unhealthy attachments to people, things, and beliefs. 

You might also notice certain behavior traits like hoarding, overworking, poor eating habits, lack of time and focus, heightened anxiety, bouts of depression, fits of rage and anger, and sleep issues (oversleeping and insomnia). 

These are defense mechanisms the mind and body use to help us cope with the belief of not having enough or being enough.

Ultimately it is not the desire for material things but the quest for freedom that keeps us bound in the low place of a poverty mindset. 

Once you understand that freedom is the ultimate goal, you start to disarm the power of a poverty mindset.

Freedom requires no outside resources to experience. You simply need to change the narrative of your current circumstance to move you from the feeling of confinement and restriction to release and freedom.

Language and thought are energy. When we use our Divine ability to manipulate that energy with a Positive Opposite, we can create miraculous and instantaneous change in our lives.

Most people have a one-track mind when it comes to solving a problem. In this instance the surface problem is  “I don’t have…” or “I am not…” this supports and perpetuates the sensation of confinement and restriction in the nervous system.

How we speak about and to ourselves is the most practical and easiest starting point. 

The next time you are about to say “I don’t have enough…” try switching your narrative to “I have enough of what I need right now and I look forward to having much much more.” 

Notice how that statement brings a sense of relief to the nervous system. 

You have released the NEED to attain something you believed you didn’t have and replaced it with opening yourself up to more than you expected.


Continue switching out your old narrative from a poverty mindset for a Positive Opposite over the next 7 days. It will feel foreign to you but stopping and thinking about how to make the switch will work wonders!

Smile 🙂 because you are well on your way to experiencing freedom on a moment-by-moment basis.
