What is the story of your financial future? And what are the scripts that you live by? There are archetypal stories that drive people, such as the story of the Beggar, the Orphan, the Judger, or the Super Hero. Some of these subconscious stories can totally limit your ability to live a prosperous life – and you might not even know it!
In this episode, I’ll walk you through a process of re-writing your Hero’s Journey story when it comes to prosperity and abundance. If life is a game, then any struggle or challenge can be seen as a way to make the game more interesting, and more likely to help you grow. If you’re in business for yourself, or are in a leadership role, chances are you’ve gotten stuck sometimes along the way to an abundant life. Money and our relationship to it, is a powerful tool for self-growth. Once you master it, you will have access to the prosperity that’s always been there for you.

This is episode 32 rewrite the inner story of your financial future. Hey, this is Carla Rieger and you’re listening to the mind story speaker podcast for influencers in business who want to change inner stories so they get control back of their own mind and also to influence others in empowering ways. In this episode we’ll look at three disempowering money stories that many people have and how to turn them into empowering stories, which will then help magnetize the prosperity and abundance that is always yours to have.
So what we’ll cover is how this is different from typical money mindset material and you might be big fans of mindset. I’m sure a lot of you are, but this is going to be a little bit different than maybe what you’ve seen, how there is some overlap, some different how to stop worrying about money and judging yourself around past mistakes around money because those two will keep you stuck with money in a really big way. I know sometimes I can’t stop worrying about money, but you can. There are ways and so we’ll talk about that. Therefore creating a profound shift in perspective that can make you like a magnet for prosperity and abundance. So you don’t feel like you’re chasing it. It sort of naturally coming to you. And this nice sort of give and receive a value and reciprocity in the world by shifting who you are inside.
It’s about using the power of story to make it stick, right? So that it’s not this thing you have to will yourself to do in terms of shifting the core beliefs. So where this came from was this phenomenon of creating a why story. You know, I help people grow their business through speaking and I also have been helping leaders speak to motivate their teams for years on the street topics. And so often if you really want to motivate a group to take action, how’s, did share your why story, right? And maybe you already have a why story, which is great. Um, but if you don’t, it’s really good thing to do. And you can have many wise stories depending on what you’re offering or what idea you want people to buy into. And so I often noticed that when I worked with someone and they reframed all their challenges in their past in terms of how it made them a wiser, more resilient, stronger, better qualified person to be doing what they’re doing now it completely change their self image and therefore their results.
It was very interesting and so I wanted to show you how to do this and this is from our new book mind straight inner coach that I wrote with them, my partner Dave O’Connor in particular chapter 10 which is about the hero’s journey, writing your story around any area of life where you feel blocked and you’ll also discover in the book of five-step self coaching model called the Avara model to overcome those limiting stories. So then this, there’s this natural growth process in your life, whether you get the book or not, you can still do it on your own. Now, when I was a kid I played this game called life and maybe you, you played it as well. I loved it because it really, I guess show the fact that it was a philosophy I was already starting to buy into. And maybe you buy into it too, that life is a game.
And if you buy into that idea then any struggle that you have in your life, any challenge could be seen as something that makes the game more interesting. Something to help you. Skill build. It’s so life is like a virtual reality skill building games. So if you come from that philosophy, I think it makes life a lot more fun. I think an interesting, it’s more like an adventure kind of series of things that I have to try to avoid. Right? So because of that, I’m going to come from that philosophy and what I’m talking about today. The cool thing is the mind organizes both limiting and empowering core beliefs in story forms. So you have all these different neuropathways going on and cells firing and sending information in different directions and a lot of it’s organized like, like a story’s organized, there’s clot and there’s theme and these characters and your scripts.
And so it’s all organized in there. So if you just take out like a script or you change like a self image, which I would call like a character in a story, but you don’t change the other parts, then it can glom back into place quite easily. So that’s why I think stories are so powerful. And if you were to be able to depict it symbolically, it’s sort of like, you know, ice crystals that have been given positive energy versus negative energy that got a limiting mine story, kind of corrupts what I consider to be your actual story that you’re meant to live by, which is very empowering. And along the way it gets corrupted and chipped and made asymmetrical, but you can rebuild it. And so no matter what happens in your life, whether it’s around money or success or relationships or health, that you could get this mind story in the right place to make it a much more empowering journey for yourself.
So what a lot of people, I found that when I was working with them on their wise story, the story of my past proves I’m a failure. Like they weren’t saying that consciously. But in talking to them about it, it became clear that that’s what they fouled. Whereas the truth is the story of my past neutral and I create my own meaning around it. Like if you can shift to that, the story of my past and all my mistakes and all my missteps and all the things that I might be regretting at this point are neutral and I can create my own meaning. That shift over is massive in terms of life, fulfillment, success, abundance, prosperity, and I mean abundance and prosperity in a variety of of ways, not just financially, but a lot of us are really driven to learn and change because of the money thing, because the money really affects people’s survival brain and so they’re very interested in solving that.
But in solving that, they end up solving a lot of other juicy life issues. So I would just like to go into that one because many of you might be telling yourself a story that’s a cautionary tale. Okay? Remember when you did that? Don’t do that again. Remember when you do that, don’t do that again, right? And there’s nothing wrong with learning from your past. But if it’s always from that survival brain trauma perspective, like if it’s held in the trauma center of the brain and you haven’t brought it into the wisdom centers of the brain, the neocortex, then you can’t really extract the wisdom and you do tend to repeat those mistakes. And so that’s why doing an exercise like this, telling yourself a story, especially in an area of your life that you’re blocked in, that’s in the form of what’s called a hero’s journey.
And if you don’t know what that is, I will describe that to you in a moment. Now, stories deeply affect the subconscious mind and you may or may not be aware of that, but like you go to a movie and if it’s certain ones that actually affect us very deeply, you know, it can change not only the individual, but you can see like a whole culture change due to like a blockbuster movie, like the matrix or star Wars or one of those. Or I remember when top gun came out, it affected enrollment in the air force, like exponentially. Right? And so the stories other people tell you, the stories you tell yourself are the most powerful of course, and will affect you for good or bad depending on the nature of the story. Now, why do some stories affect us more than others? Because there are movies say or books you’ve read or stories you hear that you’re like, whatever, that doesn’t affect you.
It doesn’t go deep, does go to the subconscious, but some of them do. And so why do you suppose that is? So just the thinking about that for yourself right now is there’s a top six most rewatched movies of all time. And this is interesting website. Of course one of them is star Wars and this is movies that many people have watched over and over. And again because there’s something that they’re hungry for in the story. So think about that for yourself. What stories have you watch many times over to the movie or, I know me, I’ve read certain novels several times over because there’s layers upon layers. And if I read it at a different time in my life or watch it a different term, my life, I get it. I get something deeper, right? Depending on where you are in your hero’s journey.
So the top six were star Wars, the wizard of Oz, the matrix groundhogs day gone with the wind and Titanic. Yeah. Now there’s many others, but those were the top six and Groundhog’s day. It’s funny because it’s about someone reliving the same day over and over again. And some people want to rewatch that many times over again. So what makes people want to rewatch a movie like that is because there’s a substructure to it. Um, similar to what Joseph Campbell, the great mythologist once called the hero’s journey where, you know, there’s this story that he noticed all through history and all through different cultures that’s very similar, right? That we as humans are telling ourselves the same story and that if it’s told in that way, it’s very psychologically satisfying. And it’s also helps people grow, like in see the world in new ways and become a wiser Richard more resilient.
We’re compassionate person in the world. And so what I like to do is look and see what’s the story that’s a hero’s journey story. And many people who do have money problems have three types of archetypal characters they cast themselves as, and they don’t maybe realize that it’s subconscious, but one of them’s the beggar. One of them is the orphan and one of them’s, I call it the corrupted one, or like the dr Faust character for some of you are familiar with that story of that he sold his soul to the devil in order to get riches. There’s more archetypes that caused problems than that. But those are the top three. And so in all my years of coaching people, you know, money issues come up a lot. Of course, especially if you’re out there in the world trying to build a business or grow your career, money issues will of course come up because we’re humans and we’re on this journey.
And that’s one of the game handicaps, right? To make us stronger and wiser. So you know, often you’ll see someone say, who had humble beginnings. So think about that in your own life, like, and your parents were always starving for me. It doesn’t mean you were actual beggars on the street, but there’s this sort of energy of, I have to beg people for money. Like people who work in nonprofits, some of them have that cause you’re always having to write grant proposals and stuff. So it’s more of an energy rather than an actual that you do. A begging. The orphan was one that I had, you know, we were sort of middle class and my parents had money, but both of them had to work in order to cover the bills. And my dad had a business, so he was working seven days a week, but his income would go up and down wildly.
And then my mother took on a job that was long hours to cover the times when his income was down. So they were never around. And so I kind of felt like an orphan and I kind of thought, well you can have money, but there’s a cost. Right. Both of them didn’t have life balance. And my sister and I were left her own devices and that just didn’t seem right to me. And so that didn’t really look like a good outcome. And the interesting thing was my father came from a family, think about this with your own family background because they affect your money beliefs. My father came from a band of carnival gypsies. He grew up and they are very poor and so he always just wanted to escape that. And he was a self made man and he was just like make his own way in the world.
And he was always really running after trying to be more prosperous. Whereas my mother had this other one, which is, she came from a family that had money, like they were kind of upper-middle-class. She felt that they got corrupted by the money when they started to do well, that they started to become sort of classist and and snobby and you know, she could only marry someone who was from Oxford or Eaton. She grew up in England and she couldn’t have any freedom. Like somehow it meant her not having freedom and that she would have to sell her soul, sell her, you know, when she really wanted to do with her life in order to appeal to a moneyed life. And so when they met, of course her parents were not happy that she married my dad and so they cut her out of the will.
And so she just came to Canada and just decided I’m not going to have anything to do with that. And interestingly, my dad was interested in my mom because she came from money and my mom was interested, my dad, because he didn’t come from money, right? So they sort of were like ships pass given that I didn’t stay together because they had clashing archetypes. But so I noticed I had both going on. Right. So you can sort of see where you might have clashing beliefs that get in your way. Right. And so in Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, there’s basically 10 parts you have the ordinary world is number one. Number two is you get called to change in some way. And number three is you tend to refuse the call. And go back. And number four is you meet a mentor who hopefully helps you agree to go on the challenge, the adventure, and with your mentor helping you, you.
Number five cross the line. And number six is where you have trials and enemies, but you also have allies that will help you. Now number seven is facing the darkness. This is where you go into the inner most cave. You face, your deepest fears, you’re stuck in the belly of the whale. There’s many terms for it going into the abyss where all seems lost. You see this in horror stories all the time, but then if you could make it through there, you get to number eight which is the journey out of the darkness. And then number nine is once you’re in the light, again you see a new perspective about yourself, your self image changes, but also about life. And then number 10 is you return to the ordinary world, a richer, wiser, stronger, more resilient person. And you’ll see this if you think of the learner, the rings and Frodo who leaves his ordinary world and meets Gandalf and has all these allies.
And all these enemies and all these trials and almost loses everything, but he’s able to dispose of the ring and return to the ordinary world, a change person, or you see it in the wizard of Oz. You see it in the movie, the matrix in the movie Groundhog’s day, Titanic, Casablanca. All those well-known movies have that same structure to them. Like say you had the beggar as your archetype. There’s a certain script that goes with the beggar. Like there’s not a, there’s not enough, there’s not enough for me. There’s not enough for others. And so chances are those people tend to stay in the ordinary world. Um, they might get this call to change, but the tend to refuse the call and go back to the ordinary world because there’s just not enough. So they’re in scarcity consciousness. So they kind of make a little bit of movement and then they go back, no, the orphan, okay.
Is the type that will maybe not refuse a call, like eventually like meet a mentor and then they’ll cross the threshold C five but then as soon as they get trials, allies and enemies, they Vel tend to get stuck there because they have this belief that they’re an orphan and they don’t have the support in life. Two, they don’t trust the mentors and the allies and therefore the trials and the enemies overtakes them. And we all need help in life. And I’ve had that with coaching clients who have a really hard time being supported. They have this sort of orphan victim mentality. And I recognize it because I used to have it and they’ll get help and then they’ll push it away and say and kind of see the world is not able to help them. Now the third type that gets money but then starts to make mistakes with it.
They, you know, maybe lose the money. They invested poorly. They give all their money away to somebody, they buy stupid things with it and then, or they feel like they become very materialistic and kind of lose sight of who they really are and their humanity, right? And so then they can get stuck and kind of selling themselves out constantly just to keep the money right. And they’re worrying all the time. And then they can get stuck in this number seven phase where you’re really supposed to face the darkness in order to come out of it. So it’s like the belly of the whale, right, where you have to face your shadow and learn from it if you’re going to keep going forward. So if you do, if you can get out of it, then you get to go on the journey where you get the new perspective, the number nine and then number 10 you can return to the ordinary world with the elixir, with the wisdom, and you have prosperity and you’re on purpose, right?
You’re having, you’re not selling yourself out for the money. You’re on purpose. You have the money that you need. You see the world is abundant. You are good with yourself, you’ve healed, you forgiven yourself for the past and therefore you have so much more to help others with. Especially if you’re in any type of mentorship, role, coaching or leading others. This can be very helpful for you to them, help them who are stuck on their journey, help them rewrite their story. And so common beliefs that block abundance, and we’ve talked about a few, the beggars, there’s not enough. The orphans is, I don’t deserve it. The dr Faustus characters, they’ll get corrupted or uh, lose it, right? So you have it that you’re worried all the time. And so if you want to know what your money beliefs are, Oh, a great thing to do is to do the Avara model that’s in the book and you’ll see the book length if you want to kind of see if that’s something that you would like to.
Yes. And the Avara model helps you go into the dark recesses of your subconscious mind and pull them up with a service where you can see them and then you can see which ones you want to keep, which ones you don’t. And go through the cell chemical process of combining the masculine feminine, that the light and the dark, the negative and the positive to create true abundance that lasts. True prosperity, that last instead of the roller coaster of up and down where you have it and you’re worried you will lose it and then you lose it and then you’re grasping for more. And it’s a way a lot of people are in the world. So it can help you break out of that. And when people do that, they discover all kinds of fears, like fear of failure. But some people have fear of success, right?
Like if I become successful with money, maybe I’ll be a target for negativity. Maybe all my relatives will start coming after me for money. I, I won’t want to say no and, or maybe people will try to swindle me or you know, people have all kinds of stuff around fear of success and you don’t even know what’s going on, right? It’s going on in the background. So if you can pull them up to the surface and transform them, and I get to show you in a moment about what it takes to transform them so that they actually stick. And a big one of course is fear of poverty. And it’s just one of those ones that really affects the survival brain and really makes people go off their true path and what they’re supposed to do in this world in a really big way. And I the Buddhist, so is say, right?
If you can get over fear of poverty, fear of aging and illness and fear of death, those three, you’re free, right? Because those are the big three that keep us stuck, keep us in a mind prison in a really big way. So if you can face that fear and process it and burn through it, it actually becomes these fears become your friends. Believe it or not. So what most people do, like they, their fears come up around money, whether it’s fear of failure, fear of success, fear of losing it, fear that they’re not good enough. Fear that they won’t have enough is they do one of three things. They resist, react or avoid. So resisting is, you start of sense those coming up, like in the wee hours of the morning, you wake up and you feel those thoughts stretch creep into your mind. Some people like push them away.
No, I have to be positive, actually positive. And you’re like pushing, pushing them down. It’s kind of like trying to put it, push a beach ball underwater, right? You’re trying to hold it down, hold it down, but eventually you can’t keep holding it down and it comes up and that’s when you can become reactive. And I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like that just suddenly you have this outburst at yourself or others or just because you can’t find the cookies, right? Or whatever. Um, it’s, it’s the resistance coming up to be outlive. The other thing people do is avoid. And the popular way that people avoid is through some form of addiction, right? Overeating, overdrinking, overworking, uh, Netflix, bingeing, you know, whatever is your thing. Everyone seems to have something and it’s a way to distract. So you don’t have to feel those emotions.
But the problem is then you get stuck. They kind of own you instead of you owning them. So if you can do what’s called process your emotions, I’m sure some of you do. Lots of processing. The more ways you have the better. So I like to use a metaphor of like a wood burning stove where your negative emotions are like these old dead trees, right? The fallen trees that you’ve cut up and you put in the fire and then the fire is your attention, right? Your loving, kind, compassionate attention on the feeling, just feeling wherever it is in the body, feeling it, experiencing it, like going into the feeling because it’s not that big deal. Once you really go in there and that starts to burn it and that starts to create warm and energy and creativity and your, your life starts to get movement and you get out of these stuck places.
And so common beliefs that attract abundance can now flourish, right? Cause you take the Ash of that burning and you put it in your garden, which creates fertile soil that for these new [inaudible] to thrive. So the opposite, one of you wanted to break free of the beggar. There’s enough for everyone. And so the opposite of the bigger archetype is like the, the giver, the giver of the world, the one who feels generous and magnanimous, right? Instead of grasping and trying to get from everybody, the orphan turnaround is I deserve it. And the opposite of the orphan archetype is like I’m connected to the world, I have support, I allow support, I allow helpfulness. You reach out and you accept it. And then the third, I’ll keep my integrity of purpose in the face of success. Kind of along with that is all manage it well.
And so that’s maybe the guide and the leader who knows, you know you’re going to be guide for others. So you want to be a living bridge for others. You want to be an example of what’s possible. And so now those have fertile ground to grow. And if you’re unsure of what are your core limiting money beliefs, just look at your results and you will see what’s going on in your life. Now the trick, when you do that, when you look and see, you look at your results, you go, okay, I’m going to look and see is avoid avoiding.
I don’t want to look at that or self-judgment where you start to beat yourself up. Okay? And you say, I’m bad, or I have to change all these release right away. And you just try to sort of overlay the good positive belief from the negative one. Because what happens is then you get into an internal war inside and it can actually strengthen the negative ones. So what you wanna do is put them in the cauldron and till the new thing comes forward. And the new thing is this new action in the world from a different place. And so it really helps to be curious, Oh, I wonder what they do. They say, do you have, Oh, I have $25,000 in debt and it’s growing. Hmm. Why is that? What are the core beliefs driving that? And, and it’s okay, and I just want to learn and grow from this, for example.
So how do you shift? So that sticks, that’s what everyone always ask, right? Like I go there for a while and then snap back to the old more limiting beliefs. Well, again, it’s an L chemical process. The mind will default to the limiting stories you already have in there. That’s just the nature of things. So you’re just going to build the strength of these new core scripts that go with these different archetypes. So here’s a way to do that. That’s going to trigger the curiosity and compassion. And it’s good to write these out and put them by your bedside so that you look at them just before you go to bed at night. And then you look at the begin when you wake up in the morning, because your subconscious mind will go to work on them. So the opposite of the beggar archetype is the giver archetype to trigger that archetype.
You can ask yourself, how can I see the world as more abundant? And often you’ll wake up in the morning with a new idea or you’re just start seeing abundance everywhere when you didn’t before. The opposite of the orphan archetype is the connected archetype, which is how can I feel more deserving of support, resources and income and ideas will come to you. It’s amazing and the opposite of the corrupted or the dr Faust archetype is the honorable archetype. How can I keep my integrity of purpose and be abundant? So say you’re in a job that feels off purpose to you either. How do you make that job feel more on purpose or how can you ship things? I always think it’s a good idea to change your thinking first before you change an external circumstance because we don’t want to get locked into the idea that you have to change an external circumstance for your happiness and fulfillment to change.
It’s always your thoughts. So just keep that in mind, wait till you feel on purpose in your job and then it might feel natural to shift it. And if you are judging yourself, which most of us do, which is the judger archetype, you can activate the compassionate archetype by asking yourself, how can I forgive myself for past mistakes around money? And you’ll come up with amazing ideas to do that. Now the other thing you can do is get the mind story, inner coach blueprint course and blueprints are guided audios that will help you build good habits of mind around money and stopping self sabotage and how to feel better and how to believe without doubt and how to turn around failures, how to create an energetic shield, how to eliminate distractions, being more present, using fear as fuel, all kinds of great stuff. So you’ll see in the show notes a page, they’ll give you more information on those.
Now what’s really helpful while you’re doing this inner work is to really think about what are your core beliefs about what creates income? And this is where a lot of people get into trouble is because they think things like the time I put out like I time for money, right? If you have a job you’re used to, I worked this many hours, I get this much money, so if I want more money, I have to put in more time. Now, if you run your own business, you know that you can spend a lot of time and get bill money back and you can spend a little bit of time and get a lot of money back because it’s about value. Not time for money, but a lot of people think, okay, well if I really stress myself out and work really hard and putting yo seven days a week, then I’ll be worthy of money.
And again, that actually isn’t in universal law is how you create income. Yeah. Other people say it’s my education. If I get more education or it’s my family, right? They get supported by family. But in the end, really, I think it’s sort of an energetic level is what creates income is providing value to the world. Now, maybe the way you provide value doesn’t immediately come back in this equal reciprocity thing. But if you’re going to look at universal laws around how many works in universe or any form of income or resources or support, it is about me being out in the world creating value in this generous giving in place, and then it comes back and or they invite you to look back on your life and see if that’s been true. In some ways, I notice it’s true for me that if I’ve got a giving attitude, all of a sudden some huge opportunity comes in from a completely unexpected place.
But I think it’s because you got into this relationship with the world where you are giving value and the world gives value back, and if you’re looking for it has to come from the place I’d give it. You know, especially if you’re at home taking care of kids and you’re being supported by a spouse or something like that, or you’re going through reinvention period and you’re living on unemployment benefits, right? The other belief we found that really, really helps people shift is this belief in your 100% responsible for your results because it’s going to force you out of the victim mentality and even people who do tons of personal growth work, you can cast themselves getting into a victim mode like things aren’t showing up for me and feeling like a victim about it instead of kind of going, I wonder if I’m doing or usually thinking something that’s causing this.
That’s one of the most hiring questions you could ask yourself is what is a different way I can think to create results I want? What can I discover? Like be curious like a scientist. What can I learn about from this situation? I have this client who had last two businesses gone bankrupt once, two divorces, and he was helping people. This is irony. He was helping people around growing their business and helping them along with that with their money mindset and he said, I don’t feel like I can really talk about that even though I really want to talk about it because of my past around it, but I held him. Reframe it. This is like because you went through that stuff, you’re in the perfect position to help somebody. Like if somebody has bankrupted a business, for example, they would be much wiser in helping someone else prevent it than someone who never went bankrupt, right?
And as soon as he saw it that way, it’s like, Oh yeah, completely changes something. It’s, so think about that with you. If there’s anything you’re holding onto with yourself, just letting that stuff go and forgiving yourself, I find just changes a person’s income like I was instantly. I’ve found in some situations [inaudible] if you go through this Avara model that’s in the book, it helps you go on that aisle. Chemical processor is the new life. The new possibility comes out of that interaction of opposites and where you know, you might start to create this new archetype that the superhero who pays the bills and supports the family and creates like an amazing business. It makes a huge difference for people or the best person in your company that’s making the biggest difference for everybody. And, and then everything changes, right? Though you see the world changes and therefore the actions you take changes and therefore your results change because you’ve changed on the inside and it’s not an intellectual exercise, right?
You have to change the core programs that are in there. So then you leave the ordinary world. And when you, you know, go through the call to adventure and you meet the mentor and you face your trials and enemies, your superhero, right? So you face that stuff and you deal with it and you face the darkness, but you’re okay. You’re willing to go through and process the fears and the obstacles and find a way around it because you have a new archetype and a new story. And so when I’m suggesting you do is if you are stuck at somewhere on this hero’s journey, you write it up until the point you’re stuck. And then you write a future story using this as your outline, where you have it be at the end, what you want, your new perspective and your elixir that you bring home, which might be your net worth or you know how big your businesses are, whatever would be a marker for yourself.
And that starts to write the new neuropathways and then [inaudible] because your brain likes to orchestrate itself in story form. It says, Oh, okay, I’ve been on this living here as journey, but that’s kind of boring cause we keep doing that and we’re stuck. Oh here’s a pathway that actually keeps going right? And the brain wants to be efficient. The mind wants, doesn’t like being stuck. So as soon as you show it a new way, it wants to jump tracks and go there, you’re setting new train tracks and it’s a bit of an effort at first, just like you’re putting down new railway tracks. It’s like, Oh, it’s a bit of work. But then as soon as they’re down, it’s just like vote. All your life force energy jumps over in your whole life changes, and it opens up your brain capacity because the limiting mind story is the, the brain capacity dialed right down the survival brain and maybe a few other functions just to keep you going. And most of us live in this survival brain dialed down state way too much. But the more you keep doing the empowering mind stories, the more you open up your brain capacity and then you help yourself evolve by doing that. So I hope that’s been helpful for you. See you next time.
