What does making money and metaphysics have in common? Quite a lot! Metaphysics can be a useful tool to help people develop a money mindset.
In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Eve Sengeko. Aside from my passion for personal finance, I’m a certified yoga teacher, Reiki Master and corporate dropout. Basically, I love all things money and metaphysical!
Money is energy.
Most times we manifest breakthroughs by tackling our challenges on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Rarely do we look at how to take on life challenges on the energetic level.
Based on the law of attraction, when we raise our vibrations, we are able to attract who and what we want into our lives. That’s why money and metaphysics goes hand in hand!
It’s not to say that life is happily ever after since I became a yoga teacher and Reiki Master. Oh no no no. I’m not sipping a Mai Tai on a beach everyday living like a retired millionaire.
Achieving financial freedom is not the end goal!
The goal is to live a fulfilling life.
Sitting on a beach all day is just not fulfilling to me. What is meaningful is helping others master a money mindset to create wealth beyond money.
The more I’m open about my financial journey, the more I’m able to help others create wealth beyond money. So I figured why not open up about some of my quirks that most readers would not expect about me!
I would not have been able to create wealth beyond money without metaphysics.
It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom in my late 20’s did I start getting more serious about healing my soul. Over time, I developed a strong passion to help other women open up about topics on spiritual growth and personal development.
As various mainstream media from Vanity Fair, Newsweek, to Oprah has covered metaphysics, many have wondered if all the “woo-woo” chakra balancing stuff is effective.
Here’s what I know to be true...
For about a decade, I went through a series of personal and professional life crises. I use to quit job after job...sometimes giving one month advance notice to no advance notice. My soul path and career path were just not aligned.
Ironically, most would describe me as an upbeat and down-to-earth gal. Maybe I should’ve gone into acting! But I digress.
Deep down, I was miserable.
I tried everything but kept feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. In the midst of anxiety and bouts of depression, I kept changing jobs, moving locations…yet nothing seemed to work.
I continued this pattern throughout my 20’s-early 30’s. At one of my lowest points, I ended a relationship with a guy that I thought I was going to marry. I couldn’t stand my office job and cried myself to sleep on Friday nights because I dreaded Mondays.
I had a falling out with my best friend, my extended family members, and then came a meltdown in front of a manager.
Unfortunately, the list goes on. In fact, there were times I was so burned out, I quit my 9-5 job without a Plan B.
Life was chaotic but that didn’t mean I had to stay at rock bottom.
For months, I worked with various energy healers and yoga mentors to clear blocks. I did a lot of energy work to raise my vibrational frequency in order align with my soul path.
Over time, the clarity and insight I gained felt drastic once I faced my mental and emotional blocks.
I ended my work contract overseas and got on the airplane to move back to the US. Within 24 hours of landing, I bought my condo and car.
Yes…from the airport, to the hotel, then my realtor’s office, into the realtor’s car, viewed the condo, 20-minutes later, put down the offer. Next morning, I bought the Prius! Many years later, still no buyers remorse!
From rock bottom to financial freedom?
As a personal finance blogger and “woo-woo” entrepreneur, I get asked a lot of money and metaphysics questions. Since I get asked these questions so frequently, I decided to put together a list of money mindset questions from Not A Bond Girl readers.
It’s natural to expect certain things from people of a certain profession. I use to think dentists never get cavities, school teachers are never wrong, and Olympic athletes eat only healthy foods.
The same goes for Reiki healers. Of the spiritual mentors and energy healers I’ve come across, it’s always surprising to learn that they don’t fit a particular stereotype.
It’s so refreshing to know that healers come in all types of personalities with different types of traits. So let’s get to the frequently asked questions shall we?
1. What’s your toughest challenge as a personal finance + “woo-woo” blogger?
There’s so many to choose from! If I had to pick the “toughest”, it’d be dealing with self-judgement. Yep, I tend to get in my own way a lot. I do my best to lead by example.
But it’s not always easy and I’ll be honest, I’m can be the polar opposite of “zen” on bad days. I try not to be so hard on myself though! After all, I learn these lessons from my mistakes and share it in my blogs!
2. How did you decide to become an entrepreneur?
I’ve always been an adventurous spirit junkie. I heart everything metaphysical that’s centered on holistic wellness. As an empath, most of my life was an emotional rollercoaster ride filled with bouts of depression.
I quit my job on impulse one too many times without a safety net in place.
Each time I took the leap, I got better at making sure my finances were squared away first. The worst feeling is going back to the employer to ask for the job back.
Been there and it was not fun. Trust.
When I finally realized the 9-5 lifestyle just was not for me, I started working towards financial freedom like a boss. I learned a lot of tough lesson the hard way and am here to share my roller coaster journey with you!
3. How to shift from a scarcity to money mindset?
Most of us do not like the struggle required to develop and grow. Yet, life is about personal development. Our development makes life a meaningful journey, not the destination.
Looking back at the ups and downs of the past, I recognize countless silver linings. Heck, my previous micromanaging boss was a silver lining. So was my passive aggressive coworkers who helped me learn to set energetic boundaries.
If it hadn’t been for some “mean girls” on steroids, I would never have taken a leap of faith to be where I am today.
