Let’s talk about what creates more intimacy + wealth in your financial partnership.
If you’re currently single, these principles apply to your relationship with yourself, as you prepare to meet your future partner.
I call these principles the 5 C’s of Financial Partnership.
The 5 C’s of Financial Partnership
This is your connection to each other, and your individual connection with money. Relationship is a dance, with natural cycles of expansion and contraction. Can you commit to staying connected through the cycles of your relationship?
Are you able to communicate your hopes, fears, desires, needs, mistakes and flaws with yourself and your partner? Saying what works and what doesn’t work for us makes space for actual potential to unfold. This level of transparent, authentic communication deepens intimacy in incredible ways.
3) Cleaning up the crumbs
This concept is about the areas where resentments build up in a relationship when left unaddressed. Where seeds fester, and eventually, a snowball effect is launched, and what may have started as a small issue now feels unresolvable. The alternative is to clean up the crumbs right away. Each partner takes responsibility to not let crumbles accumulate on the table.
Taking risks is what allows us to have an expanded experience of what’s possible. Being a money warrior means you’re willing to take informed risks. While a risk requires facing some fear, our life can improve dramatically as a result. This is also the courage to face our money shadow and our deepest fears about money.
Most of us have ingrained ideas from society and our conditioning environment on the standards we should be meeting with our finances. How much we should be earning, saving, spending etc. Yet, life never goes as planned. We each have a unique journey. Holding compassion for ourselves and each other allows us to course-correct with wisdom and self-love, instead of judgment, shame or guilt.
