I’m offering a complimentary online webinar on March 17th on “Find the Blessing in Your Money Story”. We’ll be slowing down to explore your current money situation and where you’d like to be—and what gets in the way of that.
As part of the class, we’ll explore limiting beliefs about money and how they are a golden opportunity for you to get free. So, let’s play with that today! Here are a few questions for you:
What is one change you can make in your life that would make the biggest difference for you financially, e.g., in your finances, job, etc?
What holds you back from doing this?
Pause and be still. Ask for inner guidance on what message this block has for you. What do you hear?
I encourage you to sit with yourself this week and journal your responses to the questions above. And if you’re curious, join me for the class on March 17 to explore the gift in your limiting story—and the opportunity to replace these beliefs with more positive ones!

This morning, I was thinking about my own limiting money story. As many of you know, I’m transitioning into a full-time coaching practice. One thing that can hold me back is my MIND. Much as I appreciate my mind, it can get in my way of expanding into what I want to create.
I have a pattern of pushing or thinking if I just do steps A, B, and C, then D will occur. Well, does life really work like that? Not all the time! New ideas, creativity, and money come in the most miraculous forms—if I let it.
Where does this block come from?
When I was a little girl, I had a pretty amazing life up until the age of 5. At that time, my mom and dad split up and we moved across the country from L.A. to NY. I found myself in an unfamiliar place, it was cold (we moved in December!), and my mom developed a mental illness that lasted through the rest of her life.
I felt devastated and unlovable. I made a decision at that time to do whatever I needed to do so that I would never feel that way again.
As I got older, I began to try to control my life …. to stay on the “straight and narrow”, where I did what seemed logical to create the results I wanted. I got good grades, went to an Ivy League school, and decided to do political work. And, I developed an eating disorder to try to control the feelings that wanted to express.
I’ve done such incredible work already to heal and express myself more powerfully. This new adventure is now giving me another opportunity to get free. This is such great news!
When I close my eyes and tune into my own inner guidance, here’s what I hear:
“If I stay on the straight and narrow, then I will never feel unlovable again.”
Here’s the thing though. I miss so much when I stay on the straight and narrow.
Let’s do Self-forgiveness:
I forgive myself for judging myself as unlovable.
I forgive myself for judging myself for holding back and not fully engaging in life.
Self-forgiveness is a wonderful tool to let go of these old stories. It’s an act of incredible self-love. (Use the phrase “I forgive myself for judging….” This way, you’re forgiving the judgment and not the behavior. It’s powerful!)
Here’s the truth:
I am loved and I am love, no matter what happens in the world!
I have incredible creativity and am expressing it in beautiful ways (e.g., poetry, my coaching, etc.)
Money, abundance, and new opportunities come in so many circular paths—and miracles are happening every day!
My mind is a powerful tool that I can use to create what I truly want.
EVERY situation is for me to learn and grow into awareness of who I am.
Truly, this is such a gift!! I didn’t fully realize until now that I kept my creativity in a box because I was worried about feeling the way I did when I was 5. What an amazing shift in perception to fully stand in these new beliefs.
That’s one of the most profound opportunities of doing Self-forgiveness.
I’d like to end with a poem I wrote on surrendering to love:
“Surrender Unto Love”
And in the
All things For-
The Love of
Have a wonderful week!
