In this exciting episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, our very special guest is Dr. Nicole Lepera. Dr. LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. She also studied at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Nicole often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy, and wanting more for her patients—and herself. As a result, she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, Dr. Nicole LePera’s teachings empower the individual to break free from trauma cycles and create who they want to become. Dr. Lepera now has 4.8 million followers (i.e. the self-healer community) on Instagram, which is growing and thriving by the day. 

In this episode, we discussed financial and money-based trauma and how to create a new money story. This includes creating a new relationship with money, practicing new thoughts about money, learning how to relate with other views around money. To do this means seeing money in a different actionable way and creating change in our relationship with money. We also discussed ancestral money blocks and the lack of awareness around money habits as well as unlearning previous money thoughts around money security. 

Personal Financial Identity quiz

As Dr. Lepera stated in the interview around her personal money story:

It was always this kind of drive or awareness of security and the lack of security that I was seemingly going into in private practice. So taking that Personal Financial Identity quiz and, and seeing that mindset of an entrepreneur and a Risk Taker now is something that I can resonate with learning again, how to move forward. Once I realized that this practice wasn’t going to be my end-all. Even though I invested upwards of almost $200,000 in school debt, and almost 10 years of my life to do it. Talk about taking a risk”. 

As Dr. Nicole further stated in regards to being aligned: “Living in alignment was what was most important than just going to that security of that job that I know was giving me a comfortable life. It took unlearning that belief of what security means and beginning to prioritize other things, in addition to security, and of course, it meant the practical part, where I still had the practice that I was doing on a limited basis, while I was now trying to create this new path”.
