You are healing. You are in process - constantly becoming more empowered and liberated, more aware of your triggers and your strengths. You’ve made big strides in your relationships to dating, sex, self-esteem, your body, food, family. Why do you still feel avoidant and blocked around money?
Downloading a budgeting app once a year and using it for a couple months before falling off and feeling ashamed about it isn't going to fix the problem. Setting up auto-pay for your bills (and then getting hit with that over-draft fee when you don't check to make sure the funds are available) isn't going to fix the problem. Putting the pressure of unrealistic restrictions or savings goals on your spending AGAIN isn't going to fix the problem. If you want to be radically effective, you have to get to the root of the issue. Finances are an emotional topic. They require emotional healing. Instead of hitting up against the same blocks over and over again, trying to logistics your way out of struggle, try a different approach.
Acknowledging, naming, visibilizing, and validating the emotional wounds that haunt your relationship with money is a key that will unlock real change.
We are learning how to be citizens of the world we want to live in, and we don’t have time to be unaware, disorganized, or self sabotaging. We need ourselves and each other to show up resourced to meet the moment. This is the year you stop cultivating crisis for yourself.
Transforming our relationship to money is possible and it is necessary. It will change our lives and empower our families and communities. Putting focus on healing yourself is deeply valuable to the community. We have so much more to give, from a more holistic place, when we prioritize self awareness and self development.
Heal Your Finances is an online workshop that distills what I have learned through thousands of conversations with people who are struggling to have a positive relationship with their finances. These struggles are normal. This frustration is normal. This overwhelm is normal. This anger is normal. Addressing your money mindset is not about spiritually bypassing the realities of systemic economic oppression. It's not about bootstrapping and manifesting your way into a version of the "American Dream". It's about exploring how much agency you DO have, and stretching all the way out to that limit. This is the work of being sovereign and the work of healthful, resourced interdependency. This is the work.
Heal Your Finances is comprised of a series of short videos, 2.5 hours in total. Access to the workshop never expires, so you can watch it as many times as you want. It also includes PDF worksheets that you can use to plan your next steps, including:
- Writing Prompts for each step of the course
- Thought Containers to clear your head
- Steps to Resolution to keep you in flow and on track with your healing goals
Not only are you capable of transformational change, but you’ve already
demonstrated it in your life and you are engaged in it right now. Let’s
show honor to all the ways we have evolved in our lifetimes, praise
every stretch out of our comfort zones, from the tiniest flutter of hope
to the biggest boss moves. Showing up for yourself, entering the
discomfort zone of transition and change, and expanding your belief of
what is possible for you is the work of revolution.
You are healing.
