I’ve been there. I have been deep in the cycle of debt. I’ve felt lost, scared and confused.
I was a single mom working my tail off to make ends meet. Like many others, I was stuck in the mindset that if I just stayed positive, used the Law of Attraction, had enough passion and drive and worked really really hard, I’d realize my dreams.
It wasn’t working.
Not even close.
Even though from the outside it looked like I was doing reasonably well, I was actually broke and broken on the inside. My finances and life were spiraling out of control — which was just the symptom of deeper stuff I needed to heal from my past.
One of the lowest points came the day I took money out of my son’s savings account in order to keep the lights on. At that point, I KNEW something had to change.
Ultimately, I ended up filing bankruptcy.
At the time I was going through bankruptcy I promised myself I would NEVER EVER
E-V-E-R be in that place again.
I knew I had to do something different.
I knew I had to change my mindset about money. I immersed myself in learning from several great spiritual leaders and authors from Hay House such as the late Dr. Wayne Dyer, the late Louise Hay, Cheryl Richardson, Abraham-Hicks, and many others.
I started changing my thoughts around money as well as life, and just 18-months after I filed bankruptcy I was making 6-figures –more money than I had ever made before.
As challenging as all of that was, it was really just the beginning of my healing journey. After the financial shift came the deep and hard work of dealing with the rest of my painful past, including childhood trauma and sexual abuse. Thankfully, I learned about EFT/Tapping. It helped me clear out so many stuck and negative emotions from my past. (I wish I had known about that technique when I was going through financial turmoil. It would have made it easier to go through!)
Frankly, even though at times it was extremely unpleasant to go through the healing and forgiveness process, it was necessary for me to take responsibility for my own pain. In doing so, I learned how to speak up for myself, set boundaries, have authentic conversations which all helped me develop deeper and more meaningful relationships with myself and others. Then I was truly able to re-design my life to one I love.
Now I help others do the same.
Today, I am an Author, Speaker, Certified EFT Practitioner, an Intuitive, and Certified Financial Coach.
