The Yoga of Money: Aparigrapha

In Yoga Philosophy, the concept of Aparigraha, translates as ‘non-greed’, ‘non-possessiveness’, and ‘non-attachment’. When applied to our finances, this principle teaches us to take only what we need, keep only what serves us in the moment, and to let go when the time is right. To me, Aparigrapha in application can be explained through conscious consumerism.

How to break free from limiting money beliefs

Our beliefs actually come from the way we interpret our experiences. As our beliefs are reinforced over time, they move into our unconscious mind. These beliefs that lurk in our unconscious mind can interfere and challenge us and unless we articulate them consciously, they cannot be confronted or changed.

As we become increasingly aware of our money beliefs, we begin to notice how our beliefs influence our behaviour.And once we are aware of what is holding us back, we can change our reality.
