Healing Money Wounds

Today I posted something in a group on Facebook concerning the topic of Wealth Consciousness and I thought I would share it here with you.

~Having been uprooted as a child and teenager, more than 12 times, going back and forth between two countries, and having attended 3 different primary schools and 5 different high schools….a feeling of safety, security, steadiness, stability, and grounding was lacking for as long as I can remember.

I had to turn 35, sell all my posessions, simplify my life down to 2 suitcases, and a back pack, to go work and live on a cruiseship for 2 years to start my healing.That is what it took to come face to face with my money wounds, my Money Monster.
For two years I affirmed daily a state of safety, security, steadiness, and stability. As crazy as it might sound to you, but that is what living and working on ship gave me. Surrounded by the ocean, with daily sunshine and fresh air, a paycheck coming in regularly, blessing me with more than enough, life was down to only the glorious things that make me happy.

Fun, laughter, appreciation. With the love of my life by my side. Enjoying travel, beautiful places, and the magic and bliss that is life. I also got more than enough time to write and to make my dream of a book come true.

Even though at first I had to find my sealegs I felt more grounded, safe, steady, secure, and nurtured, than I had ever felt before in my entire life. That is when, without me realizing it fully, Money Monster slowly disappeared, and Money Honey started entering into my life.

These days I feel incredibly, safe, secure, stable, steady, loved, adored, and supported. I am sharing this little story of mine with you because the last FB contest I entered inspired me to write my money story . #‎creatingfinancialparadise‬ with Ava Waits.

I realized today that I submitted my ‘healed’ money story version, but there was a very wounded story before I could tell the healed one. Maybe I should have told that one instead

In terms of Morgana Rae’s process ( Financial Alchemy) I could see nicely that Money Monster represents the way I was wounded and Money Honey represents the healing.

Isn’t that just wonderful that we have the power to heal our wounds to fully embrace who we truly are?

There is never just one side to a story. We all know that!

I personally have committed myself and my life to growth and transformation. I made that decision when I was 14. Through this decision I have learned to transcend, transmute, and transform. I have learned to identify wounds but also find the soul medicine that will heal them. I have become an alchemist turning leaden human experiences into spiritual gold. The kind of spiritual gold that will make you magnetic to your higher good. So that you and your story tell a tale of victory opposed to victimhood.

When I myself started doing this I invited my money story to turn from a wounded version into a healed one. I started allowing – the process of healing – and happiness to enter into my life.

My very first step to creating my financial paradise was owning my life and my response ability. To know and see myself as the powerful creator that I am.So after two burnouts, one at age 28, and the other at age 35, I dedicated my time on ship (Nov 2011 – January 2014) to doing some powerful emotional brain training and I rewired my brain from a state of chronic stress to a default setting of joy.

I now am utilizing tools and living in an empowered state of being able to go from stress back into balance ( Wired for Joy by Laurel Mellin) This dedication has blessed me with a constant sense of safety, stability, security, and steadiness. My days are now mostly joyous, happy, grateful, proud, healthy, satisfied, rested, relaxed, loved, and loving.

I create my world.
I am creating Affluence, Joy, Harmony, and Peace.
I create my day.
I am creating Abundance, Joy, Harmony, and Peace.
I create my life.
I am creating Prosperity, Joy, Harmony, and Peace.

Affluence = an abundant supply of what I need, when I need it.

Abundance = more than enough opportunities.
= more than enough creativity.
= more than enough money.
= more than enough time.
= more than enough love.
= more than enough support.
= more than enough loving encouragement.
= more than enough time to rest and restore.

= more than enough joy, energy, vitality, vibrancy, and health!

Prosperity = Money + Happiness + Sustainability (Prosper by Ethan Willis and Randy Garn)

I am building my relationship with Money Honey ( Financial Alchemy by Morgana Rae) and know that Money Honey loves and adores me, supports me, as I am putting positive money energy into my thoughts, career, work, creations, and financial stability.

Imagine women all over the world healing their money wounds and begin to manifest and create their financial paradise. Imagine the amount of love, healing, nurturing, inner peace and power each women would radiate into this world. And imagine how their change would affect this world.

Imagine even further how the collective healing of women and their money wounds would affect global change!

In Ghandi’s words : “Become the change you want to see in this world.”

  • What a wonderful post, Nadia. I too had a similiar story and had to heal a wound and my perception of money. I was not allowing abundance and was not accepting the gifts of the Universe. When i learned to understand how i had created my own challenges, I too learned to change my money story and to welcome the flow. Unconditional love and acceptance is the key to it all. Thanks for sharing your story with us. xo

    • So wonderful that you too found your soul medicine and could heal that wound. Yes. Wonder- ful. Here’s to beautiful flow, love, abundance, and prosperity for all of us.

      Nadia KraussAugust 13, 2014
  • Wow I’ve got tingles. I too need to welcome the flow, thanks for the reminder.

    LlinosAugust 13, 2014
    • Full body goose bumps 😉 Yes! Allow the flow. Beautiful.

  • Hi Nadia,

    For the most part, my relationship with money is pretty good. Money for me is a technical tool not an emotional one so I kind of look at it like a hammer or a Swiss army knife. I have uncovered one area about money that sometimes catches me off guard – but since I was able to uncover the root cause, I was able to put the gotcha in its proper place and make peace with the root cause.

    Great article and I’ll be sharing for sure. Lots of people out there with Money Monsters!

    • Peggy, I like your ‘Gotcha’ ! Made me smile 🙂 Thank you for sharing.

      Nadia KraussAugust 13, 2014
  • Nadia, this is so powerful! I feel like I am pretty good with letting abundance in…my husband still carries around that Money Monster you had. I will surely have him read this, thank you!

    Deanna HeiligerAugust 13, 2014
    • Deanna, oh that makes me happy. Hope my experience can serve to introducing healing to your husband. Maybe it is just realizing that he is not alone with this which would help.

      Nadia KraussAugust 13, 2014
  • Such a great story. Thank you for sharing. I offed my money monster a couple of years ago thanks to Morgana! I so appreciate your supportive affirmations for abundance. Thank you.

  • Oho.. Love the moneymonster – its here to tell us some hidden secrets – about love and joy! Thank you for your beautiful writings, love and moneyembracing light, Katrine, Norway

    Katrine Legg HaugerAugust 13, 2014
  • Love this, Nadia, and such thanks to you for sharing your journey and the incredible way you’ve changed your story into something so much more empowered. Money touches so many of us, I’m realising, in such huge ways and also sometimes in ways we do not even consciously realise. But healing that, turning it around, and making the story into one that brings light, inspiration, care and nurturing for our bodies, minds and inner selves is such a beautiful thing we can do for ourselves!

    ChristaAugust 13, 2014
  • Beautiful words Nadia, I love that you share your story from your heart. Your transparency is obvious. May you continue to lead by example. Many blessings to you!

    CarynAugust 14, 2014
    • Thank you for seeing me and appreciating transparency :-)))

      Nadia KraussAugust 17, 2014
  • What a great story! I love that you conquered your Money Monster and found security and safety from your two years at sea. And I so appreciate the expectation that we can ask for, and receive, more than enough!

  • Wow Nadia did this hit home for me. Having a similar experience of so much instability in my life with several divorces, many moves and lots of mental illness in my family scarcity was always the theme of my family. It wasn’t until looked at my own patterns around scarcity that my life and my financial picture started to change. Thank you for reminding me of the blessings and abundance I have in every aspect of my life….blessings Debra

    Debra RebleAugust 14, 2014
    • Yay! I love it when stuff hits home. That is when major healing is introduced or things just powerfully shift. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. Thank you.

      Nadia KraussAugust 17, 2014
  • Excellent article Nadia…when I quit concentrating on money and put my attention on abundance – the shift occurred. My source of abundance was not in the outer world, but in me. I like your words – transcend, transmute, and transform. It’s all up to us and it truly is a journey of discovery!
