Money is one of the strongest driving forces in society today. Its power over the human experience is widespread, yet many people are blind to their relationship with money and the psychological effects it has on them. Money has become a taboo topic in present-day society; even in psychotherapy it is swept under the rug. Employing heuristic methodology, this thesis uses a depth psychological approach to explore how awareness of one’s relationship with money can facilitate the healing of wounds caused by the misuse of money. The author uses her personal experiences with the money complex, along with existing research, to better understand this phenomenon. The findings show that in raising awareness around one’s own money complex, one finds that money may be used as an instrument of the soul rather than just a mere instrument of functioning, or surviving, in today’s modern society.
