My journey to Financial Independence Retire Early (FIRE) has been a wild ride. Like the stock market, there were many volatile moments. I’ve made a lot of money mistakes along the way. But I still was able to achieve financial freedom! How? By focusing on clearning my money chakra, aka root chakra.
First, what exactly does financial independence mean?
There are so many definitions of what it means to be financially independent. There are also a number of ways to interpret early retirement too!
Here’s what I mean when I refer to FIRE. Financial independence is accumulating enough assets that work becomes optional.
FIRE became my goal when I couldn’t stand another day at my 9-5 job.
From micromanaging bosses to passive aggressive coworkers, enough was enough. In fact, I quit a few times without a Plan B. That’s when having an emergency fund (aka F-You money) came in handy!
Money mistakes and financial setbacks are a part of the learning process.
We fall in and out of alignment all the time. Money mistakes are bound to happen so clearing blocks in the money chakra a lifelong process.
There are so many things I wish I didn’t have to learn the hard way.
It took me a long long time to let go of my past money mistakes. I had my fair share of meltdowns throughout my emotional roller coaster journey to financial freedom.
One of my biggest financial regrets was giving over $30,000 to a psychic to help me “remove a curse”. In a nutshell, I was desperate and recovering from a breakup.
But my money mistakes didn’t end just there.
There are many things I wish I did differently with my money in my 20’s and early 30’s. I made a lot of financial mistakes from not investing early enough to overspending on things I didn’t need.
Even as a business major in college, one would think I’d be better with my personal finances. I figured, all I had to do was make more than I spend.
But had I done things differently, I probably would have achieved financial freedom much sooner. Maybe even in my 20’s.
Yet, the journey to financial freedom made life much more meaningful. After all, life is all about the journey, not the destination right?
Forgive yourself + move on to create money flow!
If FIRE is your goal, then it’s time to start forgiving yourself for those cringe worthy financial mistakes. When your chakras are cleared and balanced, energy is able to freely flow through your energetic system.
Having balanced chakras impacts your aura, your energetic field. A balanced aura will allow you to attract positive energy.
According to the law of attraction, when we hold positive energy, we attract positive results. This leads to an overall greater sense of wellness.
Over 70,000 chakras?
Our body actually has over 70,000 chakras. Each time our meridians cross, that junction is called a chakra.
There are seven main chakras that make up our energetic system. The seven main chakras are located at the endocrine glands.
Clear your chakras regularly, especially your money chakra.
There are many ways to clear and balance our chakras. We can eat foods associated with the colors of each of the chakras. We can also practice yoga where particular poses help to open up certain energy centers.
Just like maintaining a clean home and work environment, chakras need to be maintained regularly too.
