The last 6 weeks have been challenging because things didn't go the way I want and it left me feeling completely stuck.
Here's how I got unstuck and was able to turn everything around.
People usually use their lack of money as the primary excuse for not investing.
But when will money ever be enough? When you reach 45? 50? 60 or too old to count?
Investing while you’re broke is possible; you just need to make that mindset shift.
When I started tantra yoga, I'd only done vinyasa yoga and ashtanga yoga and was focused on being in the poses and looking awesome as I do them.
I'd force myself into poses and now I have to challenge myself to relax in a pose and feel into my body, which changed my life.
But not before I almost lost my mind crying everyday when I was getting my yoga teaching certificate in Goa, India and then had all sorts of ancestral and deep childhood memories surface.
Day 5 was my favourite day of the retreat - it was the day of hiking, sweat lodges and full moon fire ceremonies...it was magic.
It was also the day I got to teach my work and some healing things I learned from my mother.
We started the day with tantra yoga, meditation and breakfast as usual.
Our inner child feels loyal to our mothers's struggles and honours our mothers through our vows of invisibility and self sabotage.
All this shows up as guilt and worthiness issues in our finances and our ability to celebrate ourselves.
How can we allow ourselves to be happy and thriving when our mothers have sacrificed so much for us?
I was that playground kid that no one ever wanted on their team because they were dead alive and just plain weird.
On this day all these desires of wanting to fit in came up: these desires to be less me, less weird, less scary, less talking to unseen things.
One thing that I have long learnt about the phrase “I can’t afford this or that”, is that, most of the time, we are subconsciously saying “I don’t want to pay for this or that” because we spend money all the time, it’s really about our priorities, if something is your priority, you will find a way of affording it, if it is not, you will find excuses of why you “can’t” afford it.
