Who is controlling your purse strings?

Every month I host a live Q&A call with past and current clients and today I thought I would give you a sneak peek into this week’s call.

I started off the call by sharing my recent experience of being coached by my coach, Gina DeVee, and how last week she spoke with my Inner Child and we came to understand that 8 yr old Katie has been running my finances for years.We also discovered that what my inner child desired was to be set free from financial responsibility and to just have fun. It was a deep ‘aha’ moment for me! It was also unsurprising considering my family dynamics.

One of my clients got on the line because in hearing my story she realised that she didn’t know how to give her adult self-permission to spend money on having fun.

There was no time, no money and no space for it.

When she was a child she didn’t ‘learn’ to have fun and has grown up being ‘responsible’ and ‘safe’. She is ready to have fun and wanted to know howto give herself the permission to do so.

We looked at how she experienced life while her inner child was controlling the purse strings. She said it looked like:

Not being present
Feeling a victim
Having a tantrum
Running away – either retreating within or communicating less
Being in survival mode

When we checked out what being in survival mode looked like, she said:

I forget my dreams
I focus on fast and practical reality
I lose faith and direction
I am completely lost in a dark place
I get anxious
I lack self-belief
It’s a mammoth place to get out of

When I asked her how it would feel to let her inner child know that she no longer had to be in control of the purse strings, she said:

It would be SUCH a relief because adult me knows what to do! And, if I don’t know what to do, I know I can Google it or call an expert for advice. I do know how to create what I desire and I know I am a limitless being and part of an unlimited Universe.

She was so relieved and said she had a huge smile across her face.Simply choosing to allow her adult self to take charge and to re-parent her inner child with understanding, nurturing, compassion and cuddles had her feel FREE.

I asked her what the first thing is that she would like to do for fun and she said,

Take my son go-karting!

Her little girl inside was jumping up and down at the idea rather than going into major freak out due to an overload of responsibility. There was no stress about the cost.

Her Spirit had declared this as a non-negotiable!

Her inner child was released to just be a kid and have fun.

The icing on the cake is that her son directly benefits.

Isn’t that cool!

I am always blown away by the power of coaching and its ability to take us to another level. As I expand and grow as a spiritual being I am urged to go to my next level and I am in awe of what I discover and the deepened self-love I experience.

That is exactly what I desire for you too.

I hope today’s newsletter gives you food for thought.

Big love,
Katie xx

This week’s video is a TED Talk. A pioneer in research on play, Dr. Stuart Brown says humor, games, roughhousing, flirtation and fantasy are more than just fun.Plenty of play in childhood makes for happy, smart adults — and keeping it up can make us smarter at any age.

Inspiring you to love yourself every week

Later today I am headed to Chamonix for a weekend of skiing with my best mates. Considering I only returned from Sydney 7 days ago, my ego-mind has questioned whether this trip is ideally timed. Surely I should rest. Perhaps even catch up on some work!? NOPE! I love myself enough to listen to my Spirit and my Inner Child who both desire fun and fab friends. Why limit myself? I am a limitless being. And so are you. xx
