One of the behaviors that helps me identify someone’s money story as Survival is the constant running. If your money story is Survival, that’s usually your life’s story as well.
Everything is on fire. You run a hundred miles an hour or you are crashed out on the couch. Balance is something you talk about wanting but have no idea how to get that, which makes sense. Your story doesn’t allow for balance. It’s all or nothing. That goes for time, energy and money.
When Survival is your story, often when you start to grow, and fear creeps in, conscious or unconscious, you start moving faster. You start spending faster. You don’t pay attention to your money. You get yourself into frantic mode, because eventhough it doesn’t feel good, it feels safe.
Creating a crash feels safe because you know you can Survive.
But surviving is not thriving. So, if Survival is your story you have to wire your brain differently.
You have to do things to slow down and find the feel good in that.
When Kate manifested (yes if you’ve been listening to her story unfold you know she takes full responsibility for creating what she did) leaving The Enchanted Circle, she had to slow down and just do the work.
It was the only thing to do.
And getting a part time job made her slow down “trying” to build her business.
It was all working to give her the insight and the brain adjustment she needed to let go of so much of her Survival story in a big way.
When you listen to this interview you’ll hear how she now feels good in safety. This interview took place at the beginning of Covid and she talks about putting some things in place as a safety net.
That is something you don’t have and doesn’t even feel good when you’e in the story of Survival.
Listen to this interview for evidence that change is totally possible and to hear how Kate is even able to see patterns emerge in her relationship.
