A HOLISTIC, TRAUMA-INFORMED APPROACH TO MONEY HEALING
WITH NADINE ZUMOT
Money Trauma can manifest in your life as overspending, or feeling anxiety and scarcity no matter how much money you make, or how much you have in the bank. It can even manifest as financial avoidance when you just cannot even look at your finances, or it can show up as the opposite, where you find yourself obsessing over your finances, wanting to save every dollar, and self-criticising when you deviate from your budget.
There is no need to feel ashamed, or alone. We all have money trauma, as individuals and even as a collective.
The source of your money trauma is your childhood..
As a child, you absorb nonverbal cues from your environment. These cues, along with your attachment wounds and other factors (cultural, racial, political, and economic to name a few) form your core wounds.
Your core beliefs are shaped by the unique blend of your past experiences, your personality, what you received and didn't receive in childhood, and your wounds. Your beliefs form the basis of your emotional blueprint. And your emotions influence your relationships, actions, behaviors, and the way you view the world.
Your core beliefs are the foundations of all your relationships, including your relationship with money! Money trauma is not always related to your financial circumstances. Money trauma is how your childhood wounds affect your relationship with money.
Paraphrasing from my favorite trauma researcher and author, Dr. Gabor Mate: "Trauma is not just what happened to you, but what happened inside you as a result of what happened to you."
Trauma is subjective. There is no right or wrong with what trauma can mean to you. In your early developmental years, you internalize events and circumstances from the perspective of a child, therefore I expand the definition of trauma to anything that you received, or didn't receive... happened, or DIDN'T happen, that impacted your sense of safety, security, and your sense of worth.
And to most, money represents safety, security, and worth!
This is why following a budget, or doing money mindset work is not enough to help you heal the persistent patterns that keep you stuck and hold you back.
And what I see a lot is this: Confident, creative people just like you, who know they have a big purpose in this world and are aching to express themselves and serve the world with their gifts and talents... but are held back by their fear of money.
And this is why I created this 1:1 experience... to help you heal your money wounds, to see you thrive in this lifetime, embracing your Soul's desires and expressing your purpose to elevate not just yourself, but others ar
