Moving Through a Breakup in Financial Security – Regaining Stability
How do you get through a breakup of your financial security? Money is what all of us depend on and it is our basic survival need. The reality is that we all need enough money to survive and take care of ourselves and our family. That is not the problem. The problem is that we are taught early on that our self-esteem is based on our financial worth. You may not believe this yet, but your worth and wholeness is not dependent on your 401K or how many material possessions you have. But, money is security and it is a foundation on which we can lean into as we move through the world. So how do we cope with financial loss, whatever the amount? It is important to evaluate our relationship to money and to work through the fear, self blame and the depression that may be occurring as a result of this loss. Once the feeling is worked through and there is more acceptance of the change and financial status you are ready to go to the next step. How can you become creative and flexible? What are the belief systems you must let go of in order to explore new areas of living? The key is to accept the unacceptable, the money loss, then and only then are you able to move forward with the energy and inner resources that have never left you. The goals of this program are to:
  • Immediately help reduce the trauma and shock
  • Let go of your anger and negative self-talk
  • Move from feeling like a victim to becoming proactive
  • Understand your relationship to money removing any blocks
  • Access your situation and weight your choices
  • Reach out for support both professionally and personally
  • Develop a support system instead of isolating with guilt or shame
  • Identify the short term and long terms goals and take one step at a time
  • Lean into your spiritual belief system as you move through the unknown

Phone counseling sessions available to develop a team work relationship where we look at the situations in your life, how these situations have developed, and how you can resolve them to achieve stability. Each of these types of breakup’s require you to go deep within yourself to find the strength, courage, and faith so you can take the leap into the unknown, trusting yourself and the universe that you will prevail and live with more of yourself not less. In addition, we will create exercises dealing with your body, mind and soul to be practiced at home providing you with the tools necessary to cope with the stress that is occurring.
