I grew up viscerally understanding poverty and scarcity. My family struggled for years to attain stability and financial security in a war-torn country, before immigrating abroad. Through their fears and my adoption of their fear-based thinking, I entered adulthood with scarcity as my navigating belief. It affected the jobs I wanted but was too afraid to apply for; it watered down my creativity and held me back from pursuing my passion for writing; it even held me from being vulnerable in relationships.
I knew I felt unfilled in life, but I didn't know how to move through these blockages. With the help of powerful mentors, teachers, and guides - as well as meditation and self-introspection - I began to question my family stories and rewrite them. It has made all the difference.
