Financial and Money-Based Trauma and How to Rewrite Your Personal Money Story.
In this exciting episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, our very special guest is Dr. Nicole Lepera. Dr. Nicole LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. She also studied at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patients—and for herself—she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, Dr. Nicole LePera’s teachings empower the individual to break free from trauma cycles and create who they want to become. Dr. Lepera now has 4.8 million followers (i.e. the self-healer community) on Instagram, which is growing and thriving by the day.
In this episode, we discussed financial and money-based trauma and how to create a new money story. This includes creating a new relationship with money, practicing new thoughts about money, learning how to relate with other views around money. To see money in a different actionable way, and to then create change in our relationship with money. We also discussed ancestral money blocks (and a previous Holistic Wealth podcast episode with Jena Sophia about the sub-conscious) and lack of awareness around our money habits as well as unlearning previous money thoughts around money security and prioritizing money habits.
Personal Financial Identity quiz
As Dr. Lepera said in the interview around her own personal money story:
“It was always this kind of drive or awareness of security and the lack of security that I was seemingly going into in private practice. So taking that Personal Financial Identity quiz and, and seeing that mindset of an entrepreneur and a Risk Taker definitely now is something that I can resonate with learning again, how to move forward. Once I really realized that this practice wasn’t going to be my end-all. Even though I invested upwards of almost $200,000 in school debt, and almost 10 years of my life to do it. Talk about taking a risk.
Living in alignment was what was most important than just going to that security of that job that I know was giving me a comfortable life. It took an unlearning that belief of what security means and beginning to prioritize other things, in addition to security, and of course, it meant the practical in the middle of all of this, where I still had the practice that I was doing on a limited basis while I was now trying to create this new path”.
