WORTHY: Conscious Conversations About Money

I love talking about money.  I had to do so much work around my self worth and what I thought about people who had money and what you had to do to make money.  I'm talking to Anastasia about how I got into tens of thousands of dollars of debt TWICE and how I got out of it.  I'm talking about how I started my practice and and how I took the leap from the day job to working for myself.  Here's what Anastasia had to say about our interview: 

"One of the best things about doing this series is that every few interviews or so, I walk away feeling like I just made a new friend. 

The best interviews are the ones that I forget I'm interviewing because I'm having such a good time. 

That's how I felt with Erin Telford.

I feel so grateful to have found her. 

She is so full of wisdom, so kind and funny, and so so good at what she does. 

Erin is an acupuncturist, Reiki Master, Breathwork facilitator/teacher and herbalist and ever since our time together I have used her breathwork video on YouTube almost every other night. It's crazy powerful. And Erin's voice and energy is so healing. 

I highly recommend it! 

We cover a ton in our interview. Going into debt, getting out of debt, and going back into it and out of it again. A powerful exercise Erin used to expand her capacity to receive. How prioritizing rest, relaxation, beauty, and down time actually brings her more business, not less.  How she kept going with her business, even when she had nothing in the bank and was full of anxiety and terror, and much much more.

I'll say it again. Erin is crazy special. I love her. And I know you will too."

The Day I Realized I Was Enough

The Day I Realized I Was Enough

I finally realized I was “Enough” on October 22, 2016.  I was standing in a circle around a fire on retreat with my teacher.  Two days before I had felt a rush of shame come through my body.  The mean voice in my head that criticizes and judges me was strong.  I called myself out.  I admitted to everyone in the group that I was feeling small and comparing myself.  It felt good to say it out loud. 

 

We were offering prayers to loved ones of people in the group who were really sick or struggling or who had died.  Sprinkling sage, tobacco, corn, rose petals, pinon needles and other offerings to the Earth on the fire.  As I was listening to fellow friends and seekers talk about two-year-old nephews with terminal illnesses, sisters with brain cancer, and friends who died too young, a piece of my healing clicked in. 

 

“Who the f*ck are you to not be good enough?  (this is the voice of my encouraging inner football coach talking!)  People have terminal diseases and you in your healthy body with your bright mind and all your skills aren’t good enough?  What?!”

 

I was actually appalled with myself.  That I had created this tiny cage and put myself in it.  In that moment, it felt like blasphemy to have ever put myself down.  To have ever disregarded myself or disrespected my life.   And just like that, good enough was locked in.  It only took me 41 years to do it.  I’ve gone at this one hard in about a bazillion different ways.  It all mattered and it all added up to this moment.  Now, I can’t even remember why I wasn’t good enough.  Something about the color of my teeth or the lack of muscle tone in my thighs or how much I sit around when I should be doing something.
