Many clients with money/success blocks believe that they are not allowed to shine, a common scenario is :
They had a struggling brother or sister who, as a result, was given more time/attention from their parents than they were. They then took on the belief that they were not allowed to show them up or outshine them.
Often the struggling brother or sister would then succeed, as they were encourage to do well.
Parents do try to promote equality between siblings, however remember they have their own beliefs which will get in the way, they will have beliefs about the way a boy/girl should be brought up, and what is appropriate for a certain age. And yes, parents do have favourites (often unconsciously).
One client had a feeling of not quite achieving her potential in life. She became aware of the subtle messages she received from her family not to outshine her brother. She was allowed to do well but not too well. She could see this pattern arising many times in her life. Once she became aware of this pattern, she was able to use EFT/Matrix to achieve her potential.
These issues can surface in blended families, where there can be competition for the attention of a parent.
Another client was struggling financially and wanted to work on it. She was brought up by her father and stepmother along with her step siblings. Due to her step mothers influence on her family, she became low down in the pecking order when it came to treats, presents and money. she was able to clear this block of always being last on the list when being paid.
It actually does not matter whether there is a favourite or not, what matters is that you felt that you came low down the pecking order and you felt somehow less important than your sibling.
Look for that pattern in your family, or a variation on this theme.
Variations on this theme could be where another sibling was seen as the favourite, or had special privileges or it can even be a parent you felt unable to outshine.
You can make up your own set up statements for this, it needs to be your personal story, which has to come from you.
What I do is give you ‘themes’ which I have come across, in my work, which may have a bearing on where you are today.
It is worth doing some tapping on this issue. It is a very common theme.
Enjoy- I hope this helps, let me know if this is an issue for you and how you get on.
