Money is life force energy. It's an exchange of energy between you and your clients or customers. How we use our life force energy matters. Who we share our life force energy with also matters. Your offerings, and the money you receive for them, are a way to be nourished, supported, fulfilled, safe, overflowing.
When we don't price our offerings properly, we can end up malnourished. This malnourishment can show up as burnout, resentment, fatigue, numbing, disappointment, anger, grief, or simply not getting your needs met fully. Money as life force means that we need to honor our money like we do our life force energy, our body and its wisdom. I love money because it's a reflector, a mirror. Your money will always show you exactly how you feel, and the shadow emotions you may not be looking at.
Pause for a moment and think about your offerings. Your goods, services, products, offerings, creations.
How does it feel to share your gifts and wisdom with others? Do you feel like you are being compensated fully? Do you feel ease and joy receiving money for your offerings? Do you feel full and overflowing?
If not, some adjustments need to be made so that your life force is being honored and supported.
Often the biggest AHA I hear from clients comes when we adjust the structure of their offering to honor their body and its needs AND find pricing that both feels good to them and their body. I see far too many women who are unclear on their financial needs, and who undercut their own receiving. This is a very old patriarchal, misogynistic, and colonialistic mindset that keeps women in lack generation after generation. You do not need martyr yourself, over give, starve, or be depleted when sharing your dharmic gifts and wisdom. Your dharma and the money you receive from sharing your gifts, is a source of nourishment, support, creativity, safety, ease. Honoring the wisdom of your body is a powerful way to adjust your pricing and your nourishment.
There is no one size fits all approach to pricing. I often hear business models and business approaches that do not take into consideration the body, its needs, the embodied wisdom you are expressing, nor the legacy you provide. Everyone's needs are different and we should approach pricing in the same way. Making more money does not make you a better person, or more enlightened. Pricing is an individual process that can support your growth, transformation and healing- if used properly. Remember that your pricing should support your overall wholeness and nourishment.
Here are four considerations when pricing your offerings:
- Your Value
The gifts, wisdom and tools you share with the world have required immense time, energy, and willingness on your part. Likely it's taken years for you to have this level of embodied awareness. You've been through so many obstacles, transformations, and overcome so many challenges on your path. The education you've cultivated in your life has come mostly from lived experience. This is part of the value you offer and provide to others.
Also consider how much of your embodied value- your inner knowing and inner wisdom- comes from your ancestors. Without the gifts that they have passed down to you epigenetically, you would have no dharma, no purpose, no unique offering. The ancestors are a vital part of your Value and must be acknowledged as part of the vast awareness you bring to this world. Your pricing should honor the value of your gifts, wisdom, ancestors, and all the learning you've gathered thus far in your life.
Does your current pricing honor your full embodied value? How have your ancestors influenced your gifts, wisdom, and offerings?
- Your Energy
Your energy is your life force. It's your body wisdom and all the power and strength of who you are in this body and life. Your pricing should honor the energy you use with your offerings, as well as the energy required to take care of your body, wisdom and gifts. Your self care and spiritual practices are part of how you maintain your energy and gifts. When you are depleted and burned out, you will have nothing to offer, and no energy to share or connect in meaningful ways.
Your pricing should reflect the time and energy you spend offering your gifts, as well as the time and energy it takes to maintain your body, emotions, mind, and spirit. In other words, your pricing should allow you to attend to your wholeness. Dharma is your wholeness, which means you can not offer from an empty cup and still be nourished. Receiving money for your offerings and gifts is part of your nourishment and supports your wholeness.
Does your current pricing honor your whole body and all its needs? Are you receiving what you need in order to take care of your body, mind, emotions and spirit?
- Your Needs
Yes, your needs are part of your pricing strategy. Honoring what you need to live a comfortable, safe, healthy, and nourishing life is why you make money. Taking into consideration what you need- on all levels of your life- is part of how we create our pricing and dharmic offerings. Your needs must be part of the equation. Everyone has very different needs and so there can't be only one way to price your offerings.
Every woman must know her numbers though. Being able to tangibly clarify what your financial needs are is vital for your pricing. Clarify your monthly expenses and what you need for savings, paying off debts, getting all your basic needs met, getting taxes paid on time. Based on this number, figure out your annual financial goal. Your monthly and annual goals can be used to figure out how many clients, products, packages, etc you need in order to get your needs met.
Most of the women I meet don't know how much money they actually need to make for their needs to be met. Their current pricing doesn't fully support the needs they actually have and they find themselves in lack and ongoing malnourishment. You must know how much you need before we can even address your pricing strategy and growth strategies.
Do you know how much money you actually need to make? Does your current pricing honor all of your needs- including your energy and your body? Do you find yourself underpricing so you can sell more or giving your gifts away for free? Are you afraid to ask for what you really need?
- Your Legacy
Legacy takes into consideration past, present and future. Much of your legacy comes from your ancestors. The majority of the embodied gifts you carry with you are given to you by the ancestors. This is part of who you are and what you offer the world. You've also gathered an immense amount of knowledge and wisdom on your path so far. This is part of your offering as well. The gifts, wisdom, tools, and knowledge you provide will support a ripple effect on this planet.
Think about all the lives you will touch by offering your medicine. Every life you touch will touch countless other lives as well. You are planting seeds that may come into fruition many years to come. You are supporting souls in their growth and transformation process and that will impact their families, children, partners, friends, community and beyond. You are increasing the quality of life for your clients and offering resources that will prevent more struggle, suffering, and pain. How much is this worth- to you, your clients, the world? For the most part, the positive shifts we support our clients with are truly priceless. Considering your legacy impact in your pricing equation, however, must be honored.
Does your current pricing truly honor your legacy and the lasting impact you provide? What is the legacy you want to provide for your clients and the world?

There is something no one seems to be talking about in regard to loss, grief and death.
Everyone is effected by grief. Everyone.
The majority of people are resistant to the word, let alone the work it takes to heal, transform and digest this incredibly powerful part of being a human.
Most people are jumping over their losses, never fully digesting them, nor integrating them into their body, or their life. Without proper integration physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, grief gets pushed deep within the bodies, resulting in multiple challenges, disturbances and dis-eases.
I've been talking a lot lately about undigested grief and even worse, hidden grief.
These are very real issues that are effecting in all honesty, everyone, to some degree. It's not a radical notion to say that everyone on the planet is grieving- whether they are conscious of it or not.
Grief is real. It's a real part of life.
Whether you want to look at it directly, or push it away and negate it, it's still a part of your life- consciously or unconsciously.
Grief indicates that you've experienced a loss on some level- either big or small. These losses really add up.
Part of the grief journey that no one is talking about, is the impact all of your life losses have on your finances.
It's amazing to me that this is never part of the grief conversation.
Debts, lack of money, an inability to make, save or acquire money, are all issues related to loss, to grief. Particularly grief that has not been properly attended to- meaning it hasn't been fully digested or integrated.
Any loss that you've experienced in your life gets stored in your body memory. It's a part of your life and will impact you- your future choices, actions, behaviors, and experiences.
Money is nothing more than a physical resource of nourishment, life force energy. It's a human created expression of abundance, the wealth of nature and her bounty. The ability to receive money, is intimately connected to your ability to receive nourishment- on all levels of life- which includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies.
This is why the wealth houses of the jyotish chart are also the houses of eating, digesting and giving (2nd, 6th and 10th houses). If you can't eat the nourishment, digest it and assimilate its nutrients fully, you also won't have much of an offering to give to the world. You will have very little life force energy in which to express your powerful gift. .
If your channels are blocked by undigested grief, you won't be able to receive or create vitality, or life force energy. This lack of life force energy impacts your receptivity, your ability to receive nourishment, directly.
What happens when years and years of undigested grief and losses are not honored and healed? Debts pile up (literally your losses pile up). Houses 6 and 8 in your jyotish chart are also houses of digestion, stomach and elimination. They are considered the most challenging houses of the chart, causing serious health issues and not surprisingly are both connected to losses, debt and financial struggles.
Simply put, when you clean up your bodies (physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually) and process, clear and release the undigested emotions and experiences of life, you have much more receptivity. You literally have more ability to give and receive life force energy.
On the material level of life, this means you have the ability to give and receive more money as well.
Lakshmi is a powerful embodiment of this free flowing energy within the channels of the body. The golden coins pouring from her palms, express the abundance of nourishment- inside and out. Health is wealth! But when any of the four bodies are clogged with toxic byproducts of undigested food, experiences and emotions, the channels of the body will not be open and awake. A dullness will set in and this will impact all levels of your life- even your relationship with money.
Almost every single person who has inquired about my nine month Awakening Through Grief Course has shared money problems are impacting their decision to join the course. Debt has been a very personal part of my grief process as well. I know there is a direct correlation between grief and money, because I've experienced it personally.
One of the most direct correlations between grief and money challenges has to do with stability and support.
When you've experienced a loss- whether large or small- it impacts your stability, your sense of support. This instability impacts your sense of safety- personally, physically, as well as materially. Your experience of life and the world around you becomes destabilized.
So it makes sense that because money represents safety and support, as well as comfort and stability, when life is feeling unstable and unsafe, your money will be impacted as well. Money is energy, so it will reflect your feelings. If you don't feel safe, your money will show it.
When you clear, clean, heal and transform grief, and allow the emotional body to find greater resiliency, this has a positive impact on your receptivity, your ability to receive nourishment- including money.
That is why I've created a nine month course Awakening Through Grief, to support the healing and transformation of your grief. To help you digest, heal and integrate losses- on all four levels of your being- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
This very unique nine month course is not just about healing grief, it is really about allowing you to integrate your losses with life, so that you can experience more resiliency, more life force energy.
When you clean up your undigested grief, you suddenly have a lot more space to create, manifest, align and receive the nourishment of life more fully!
The work that we do in this course will help you heal, transform and release grief- whether it's impacting you physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually- or all of the above. This process is creative, embodied and whole. It's a sacred journey of deeply integrating loss and helping you expand into life more fully.
Please join me for this powerful nine month journey that will truly change your relationship with loss and life. Transform your losses into life!
Remember that if you're experiencing financial problems, this means you are really experiencing life force problems.
You are not able to receive life force energy fully. Your channels are clogged, your receptivity is not awake! Grief, undigested emotions and experiences are blocking your life force energy which will not only impact health, but also finances. Loss equates debt- no matter the story.
Learn how to awaken your receptivity through healing and releasing your grief. Step into a more resilient, embodied and empowering life!

Tapping Meditation for Resistance
Tapping Meditation for Resistance
Use this Tapping Meditation to work through your grief process- when you feel stuck, afraid or resistant to change. Remember that we always start with "truth tapping" by expressing feelings and experiences that feel challenging. This is a vital part of the process and paves the way for transformation and healing.
In the podcast below, I share a tapping (EFT) sequence with you that will guide you through transforming and releasing the old stories and invite in more receptivity. Remember, we start with identifying the challenges, then moving into possibility and desires in order to transform our shadow into light.
Use this podcast as you tap through these points:
Karate chop point (side of the hand).
Crown of the head.
Eyebrow point (above the eye).
Side of the eye.
Under the eye.
Under the nose.
Chin point (crease of the chin).
Throat point (collar bone/throat chakra).
Heart point (center of chest).
Stomach point (above the navel).
Side body (nipple line at side of chest).
Tap six to ten times on each point and just keep cycling through the points. Repeat the phrases I use aloud. Notice any thoughts, stories, memories or emotions that emerge as you tap. These are important pieces to return to, do more tapping on, as a way to clear blockages. As always, if the words I use don't work for you, change them to support your process more fully.
Share your experiences below! What emerged for you in this process? Excited to hear from you!
Join me for a nine month journey into Heart and Spirit!

Do you ever catch yourself feeling like "it's not enough" on some level of your life?
It might show up as not enough money, not enough time, resources, support or love. Perhaps you feel you are not enough- in your relationships, as a parent, with family or at your job.
This story of lack, of scarcity, is carried by almost everyone. It shows up in many different ways- affecting your ability to receive the nourishment you need and locking you into a highly critical personal narrative that emerges to undermine your sense of safety and support. You probably feel yourself doing more as a result. Doing more work, putting in more time, feeling depleted in the process. Yet, no matter what you do, you never seem get ahead or conquer this feeling of "it's not enough".
The story "it's never enough" is a powerful force- one that will keep you stuck in cycles of malnourishment, instability and co-dependency.
Like every human being, your ancestral legacy is handed down to you and your story of scarcity is no different. The patterns, behaviors and experiences that were shared with you epigenetically (or energetically), imprinted your being. Your familial stories hardwired you for making certain choices, having certain behaviors and activated likes and dislikes.
My story of scarcity began before I was born. I entered a life where my needs could not be met fully. There was not a feeling of safety and support often nor immense happiness and joy surrounding my birth. I arrived to a mother who was already depleted- taking care of another small child and a partner who was struggling on a variety of levels. My mother's own story of lack had multiplied and taking care of yet another person with needs, I imagine, felt overwhelming to her.
When my father died suddenly just after my first birthday, the lack intensified within me. The immense shock, grief and trauma surrounding his death, undermined my ability to feel worthy or supported. In fact, this woundology that I've carried about not being "enough" for my father to stay on the planet, has impacted me greatly.
Three years ago my mother passed suddenly and left me with heart wrenching grief. I spent my entire life trying to be "enough" for her and yet again I was not "enough" on some level to keep her here on the planet.
Of course on the conscious level, I know this story doesn't make sense, but my unconscious terrain has perpetuated a very shadowed story of "not being enough" as I am. This "not enough" story has been a powerful force that has undermined my ability to feel safe, supported and loved.
As I continue to explore the territory of my personal mythology and allow my grief to be a healing force in my inner awakening, life has dramatically shifted. Understanding the nuances of my early childhood experiences and how they have sabotaged and undermined my ability to feel safe, supported, grounded or even willing to stay rooted in my body, has been vital for my recovery process.
My story of lack has directly impacted my finances. This ability to feel safe and supported, or to make choices that support further stability, has been directly connected to money.
In fact, your relationship with money is always going to mirror to you what your biggest needs are. Where you are stuck in lack, scarcity or "not being enough".
Pause here and notice.
What is your story with money?
Do you always struggle to make ends meet?
Are you able to make money, but just can't seem to keep it or save it?
Is there plenty of money, but still a sense of depletion and malnourishment anyway?
Is your financial stability intimately connected to someone else taking care of you?
Notice how your story with money is connected to not feeling like you're "enough" on some level of your life.
How does your money story connect with your story of lack in other areas of your life?
The fact is they are intimately connected. Wherever you are not feeling "enough" within yourself, this will be mirrored to you within your finances.
These old stories and wounds can be re-patterned, changed, healed and transformed. In fact, for the last five years, I've dedicated my efforts to deepening my experience of support and stability- both inner and outer. The massive instability I've experienced, has forced this need to intensify and has activated deeper desires for a sense of grounding.
Fortunately my embodiment resources and tools have been a powerful way for me to deepen my relationship with stability and support, changing my story in positive ways. I am happy to share that how I work with my instability is very different these days! My choices are radically different- which means I no longer create the immense instability I used to, nor am I attracting it to myself. I'm also very conscious of the instability when and if it arrives- so I can use it as a resource for deepening my inner change.
Metaphorically, the legs and feet are your grounding and stabilizing resources within the body.
Legs and feet are connected to the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th houses of the jyotish chart- or Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces as well. The planets connected to these houses and signs can be important resources which may offer you a road map to re-patterning your relationship with stability and support. Use your jyotish chart as a resource for understanding your scarcity, lack and instability story.
The process of sustainable and lasting change begins within. It begins with the body, with sensation, with slow steps that move you closer to the feeling of being steady and grounded.
When the feelings of instability have been where your focus and attention has been for so many years, it requires diligence and "retraining" in order to strengthen and clarify the feeling of stability instead.
The wisdom of somatics and embodiment training are gentle, yet powerful resources for creating lasting inner change.

From Scarcity to Abundance Tapping Meditation
The tapping meditation above is your first step in identifying and moving your scarcity story. Share your experiences and questions below.
Everyone that comes to me for a session wants to know one of these things:
What is my life purpose? How can I make more money? What can I do about my relationship issues?
The hardest part of my job as a jyotish coach is not giving advise or looking at someone's chart and seeing what the challenges are for a person's life. I look at the karmic map and there are the struggles, the issues and challenges staring at me. Finding what isn't working, is not the hard part.
As a jyotishi, the challenge I face consistently is giving resources, tools and embodiment guidance, but instead watching the client choose not to take these vital action steps. Watching a client refuse to take action in order to move through their weaknesses and obstacles is hard for me! Especially since I know that some very different approaches are needed in their life, in order for their desires to actually manifest.
This requires my deepest surrender and detachment.
It's true, many people just want to be told what to do and they want some magic pill to take care of it for them. They want a quick fix. A mantra, or yagya (which can often be valuable no doubt.) Or they want to know that their problems will just go away once Saturn isn't transiting over their Moon etc. Many clients hope that their "soul mate" will magically appear once a relationship transit arrives. But the reality is, it really isn't that simple.
We get what we are ready for. What we are prepared for. What we have created space for.
Money, love and creativity are all ruled by Venus- and rightfully so. These three powerful factors in our lives can bring joy or misery, abundance, or little more than a drop. Money, love and creativity are all determined by our ability to give and receive, or quite literally, the amount of flow and fluidity we are working with; the fluidity we are able to use and able to harness. This is why Venus is also connected to water, the most vital life-giving resource for us. Without water in the physical body, we have death. Death is lack of life of course, so the more vitality and life-giving forces we invite into our beings, the more life, fluidity and flow we experience as a result.
The pelvis (and organs therein) as well as the second chakra, are the physical containers of money, love and creativity. If we are feeling a lack in any one of these areas, we need to address the physical issues connected to them as well. But the first chakra, and the body parts included in the first chakra (every thing from the pubic bone down to the feet), is perhaps the most vital part of the manifestation process.
My favorite money quote is: Money wants clarity, purpose and flow! These are the domains of the first and second chakras!
Contrary to popular belief, it isn't through thinking your desires that they become manifest. And contrary to popular belief it isn't through your meditation practice, your affirmations, your positive thinking, or anything else that is a part of your mental body process, that will actually help you materialize the intangible into the tangible.
If you want to bring your desires into the material, you have to work with the first and second chakras (the lower, base, chakras) which are intimately connected with the material world. These chakras are all about being here, right now, in a physical form. Our body, our grounding, our actual physical connection to our life, is the realm of the first chakra. If you aren't in your body, embodied, you can not, and will not, be able to get your ideas and visions to manifest into the material world. We quite literally manifest through our body!
This reality is reiterated through the story of lord Brahma creating the universe from his navel. He reminds us that we have the ability to create our lives- which is why he and his consort Saraswati rule over creativity and the power of the arts. They remind us that it is our creativity that is literally our most potent source of knowledge and wisdom for this existence.
Want more money, love and creativity? Get into your body wisdom and your emotional body wisdom. Manifestation happens when we are intimately connected with our feeling level, our felt senses, the emotional body wisdom and the intuition. This is why I am so passionate about a body-centered approach to therapy, one that uses somatic wisdom, while also drawing upon the expressive arts as a resource for intimate exploration, and harnessing our innate, creative wisdom. It is also why I start my clients off with embodiment step number one, the three level check in.
We must get more embodied if we want our dreams to manifest. We must work with the body wisdom and our intuitive knowing in order to create from our most primal sense of self. This is where we tap into our innate creativity. Creativity is actually a vital ingredient for the money and the love to start flowing. This is the gift of the embodiment resources and the art therapy techniques I work with; they potently activate the creative and physical channels. This stimulates the flow and fluidity of Venus, which we need in our lives in order to be more nourished on an ongoing basis.
Don't think your desires. Feel them. Move them. Create with them. Go beyond your imagination. Gather your desires from your dreams, from your sense of intuitive knowing, and move them into existence through your body.
Use your jyotish chart as your map to get you to the wisdom you need to unlock your shadows, disappointments and challenges. But don't stop there. In fact, if you stop at just the "knowing" of what your issues are, you won't move beyond them or learn to work with them differently. If you really want lasting change, and to create a different life for yourself, you have to take action steps that will literally help you re-create your life from the ground, up. From your feet to your head. From your first chakra and your second chakras first, then all the way up to your 7th chakra!
I'm very passionate about my system, my tools and the synergy of modalities that I use of course! But I'm even more passionate about sharing them with you, and watching you grow, flourish, and thrive as you re-create your life over and over again!
