[00:00:02] I am Gloria Grace Rand, founder of the Love Method and author of the number one Amazon best seller, Live Love Engage – How to Stop Doubting Yourself and start being yourself.
[00:00:15] In this podcast, we share practical advice from a spiritual perspective on how to live fully, love deeply and engage authentically so you can create a life and business with more impact, influence and income.
[00:00:33] Welcome to Live, Love, Engage.
[00:00:37] Now must stay and welcome to Live, Love, Engage, I am Gloria Grace Rand, and today we’re going to be talking about money and the emotional baggage that we sometimes carry around dealing with money.
[00:00:54] And that stops us from really being successful in our life and business. And with me to talk about this, as someone who has been dealing with this for a long time now, her name is Chella Diaz.
[00:01:08] I didn’t double check to make sure I was pronouncing your first name right. I figure it’s easy, but it is that right? It is cello.
[00:01:16] It is. It is definitely. You got it.
[00:01:18] Ok, because sometimes it is something to looks simple and then it will be so well. I’m so glad that you are here.
[00:01:27] And we met actually at a mastermind event not too long ago, an online mastermind event. And it was really great to get to know you. And let me share a little bit about why this lady is saying to me, as my mother used to say, and why I thought she would be a really great guest for the show.
[00:01:51] She has known for a long time about how to manage money. For one thing, at nine years old, she’d go to the farmer’s market and knew the vendors that had the best produce at the lowest price. So she knew how to make a deal right then. That’s pretty cool. Bought her first car at seventeen and a first home at twenty three. She’s open and then she’s been married for 17 years, has two sons and for the last I guess fifteen years or so, she’s been on a spiritual journey that’s included allowing her to host workshops that empower people to master their money skills and her simple approach to create a spending plan that will serve you today and for many years to come is what’s going to allow you to reach your financial goals with joy and grace, which is just something that I think is a perfect way to be able to do that because there’s too much stress. And I think that’s a lot of what we do. Sometimes we stress about money. So if we can do it with joy and grace, that’s a good thing. So the first thing I want to talk to you about is I know that you work with you work with a lot of coaches and mentors. And then you’ve also yourself created a program that provides your clients with the tools they need to unpack their emotional baggage around money. So tell me a little bit about, I guess, what is how do you define emotional baggage and why are we carrying it around with us? Where does it come from? Yes, I believe in the value.
[00:03:31] So delighted I’m so delighted to be here with you today. But I believe that a lot of the baggage that we carry, we don’t even know we carry them. So that’s the first thing is because we we’re not even aware. All we know is that we’re not reaching the financial goals that we want to do for many, many different reasons. But some of this I like to think of the money beliefs that we’re gifted to us by adults. Right. And so we carry this and we don’t even know that we’re carrying that. I say it’s time to give the back gift. You’re back. Let’s let it go. Right. It’s first knowing that you may not even be aware that you’re carrying this emotional baggage around money. Yeah, that’s where the that’s where it all begins.
[00:04:23] Well, then, if you’re not aware of it, how how do you get awareness that there is that what you help people with?
[00:04:31] They can do it. The first step is identifying what the money conversations you listen to as a child. What was that? What was planted in a world with the seeds planted as a child? And there’s not going to be many because we all pretty much have. I’ve been doing this for over 15 years. Money does not grow on trees. We’re not made out of money. We can’t afford it. You have to work hard for your money, have to struggle. We’re not rich. You know, those are the most popular. Went straight. So depending on what that was. Whatever, it doesn’t matter which one it was and how did that conversation how is that having an impact on your current financial picture?
[00:05:12] Mhm. Yeah. Yeah, because I would imagine if you’re not getting the results you want, then it’s probably because it has to do with one of those one or more probably of those beliefs.
[00:05:27] Bingo. Bingo. You just said it right. Because if you’re not getting the results that you want, for whatever reason, whether you procrastinate, whether you’re not doing the things you need to be doing, whether you’re putting it off until tomorrow, you know, the some day, some day is not today is here. But whatever the whatever actions you are not taking because usually is you’re not taking that action. It’s a reflection of whatever that money conversation you heard as a child.
[00:05:55] Mhm. Yeah. So how do you go about changing that. Because I know and that’s certainly been something that I’ve had, I’ve done a lot of work on as well and realizing that yeah, I had a lot of disempowering believes that I inherited and I know I’ve been doing some work on and. Retraining myself, I guess, maybe. So what do you do, how do you help people to be able to, I guess, come up with some better beliefs about money?
[00:06:28] And that’s it. We’re just updating the program, right. We it’s time to have an upgrade in your computer. We we do an upgrade on a computer and on our phones. Right. We just need to do an upgrade on our mind, our brain. And that’s the first step. Right. And it could be simple as identifying. I’m a huge believer in letter writing and I say letter writing versus journal writing because the letter you just think of that event or the scene or whatever it is you pour yourself whatever your feelings and emotions are into paper and then you burn the letter. That’s my favorite part. Right. So it’s identifying. Right. Then you’re taking that stuff from your mind onto the paper and then you letting it go. Yeah, it’s a virtual.
[00:07:12] Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. That’s so freeing. I’ve done some I’ve done actually some of that myself and and I. What do you find. I found that really when you write the letter to really even allow yourself to feel your emotions, because I did write an angry letter to my mother once she’s sick and she never saw it because she’s she’s transitioned a long time ago.
[00:07:38] But it was because of a lot of the stuff I realized that I had taken out a lot of her belief.
[00:07:45] She grew up during the Depression. So, you know, she. She did the best that she could, and that wasn’t how I grew up. We actually we’re doing fairly well for my childhood compared to hers. So do you find that is is that something that you find that helps if you really not just writing the letter, but really actually sort of feeling it?
[00:08:09] Absolutely. So the first step is writing the letter to that scene or that event or situation or the person burning that letter, but also following it up with the letter of what you want to invite. OK, right. So whatever it is, do you want better relationships? Do you want to have more money? Write a letter to money, write a letter to relationships, write a letter to abundance, whatever it is they or experiences, whatever it is that you want. Dear money, I’ve missed you. I want you to come back. And I don’t mean some silly write for your audience, but just really be real with it. If you want money, it’s a relationship like what is the money relationship? What do what do you think about what do you how do you talk to money. Yeah, you constantly say you’re not enough, right. You know, I don’t have enough of you. You don’t have enough whatever that is. Right. Because you think of it really think about if that was you and you were in the relationship, would that the way you talk to money, you were talking to a significant others. I stick around. I wouldn’t stick around. Oh, no. Absolutely right. Yeah. But if you start thinking about that, your mind starts thinking about and that’s when they begin to shift. And when that happens, then all of a sudden you’re going to come across either books. Ted talks, you’ll be so many different research, somebody will mention or recommend a book they just read because now you’re open, you’re opening up those windows to receive the information is going to help you get to the next level.
[00:09:48] Yeah, absolutely. And that is a good segue way of what I wanted to talk to you about next, because I know that we both share an affinity for really tapping into the spiritual side of, well, spiritual tools. I guess I could say. I know that you’ve done you’re you’re certified in like Reiki, for instance. I know I’ve taken some Reiki trainings as well. And I think you do. You’ve done like hypnosis and and you’ve studied a lot of different modalities. How does that how does that play into the money story? Well, I should say, how does that play into your your work with clients around money?
[00:10:36] Yeah, it’s just that toolbelt is just the box of tools because everybody’s on the different journey and everybody said a different part in their life, in their journey. So those all those tools just come in. And I don’t have to think about which tool am I going to use. It just flows is whatever that person needs at that point in time. Right. And it’s all goes back to the childhood. It all goes back to some event that we experienced that was just not a comfortable right. So we I think of it as the money experience, whether it was let’s take we don’t have enough. We can’t afford it. And also have that experience grew as we grew. Right. Because it keeps changing. We experienced it as a five year old, but then he took a different form when we were 18 or twenty one or twenty five is the same. So it’s about going back to the route, identifying and releasing it, because he has taken that many, many. I like to think of it as different outfits is put on a lot of different outfits.
[00:11:40] Absolutely. Well, tell me a little bit, though, about your story, though, in particular, because it seems like you were pretty savvy about money right from the start. So you must have been blessed with some maybe some good parents that didn’t have quite as many limiting beliefs.
[00:11:58] No, no, no. OK, now, my dad is very smart with money. He really is. My dad was a banker and my mom was a housewife. So for those folks, I think, well, you know, she got some help. No, I actually didn’t. Once upon a time. But the one story that I walked away that was gifted to me is you have to work hard for your money, right? When your dad is the baker is it’s physical work. Sure. And I definitely worked with him. So he worked a full time job and then he had a side side business as well. And I remember having to get up on Saturday mornings, which felt like it was four o’clock. It really wasn’t for that 14 year old. I was like, why do I have to get up so early? So the store that I received is you have to work hard. So for me, yes, I was good with money. Yes, I was able to manage and anything I set my mind on. I knew if you want X, you just need to put these things into place in order for that to happen. It just made sense to me. But when I first went out to get my first speaking gig and I got paid for it, how is sitting standing in of the room talking? It went against everything my dad said about working hard. So at that point I did. That was my overcoming of reaching out to my mentors and my coaches and helping me. You bridge that gap, so I did. I mean, it is definitely I definitely had to go through it. Yeah, I did have to go through it, but I went through it because I still had some beliefs, you know, and it’s have to work. You have to work hard.
[00:13:49] Yeah, absolutely. So so what what got you interested in in other types of modalities like like Reiki and things like that, because it’s still a lot of circles. People call it will, you know, things like that. And but it’s I, I think it also is still it is starting to become I think, more, more accepted, I mean, even by mainstream medical profession. But what what drew you to it?
[00:14:19] Initially, I was got into a sales position and I knew that was going to be a lot of stress. So my first initial certification was a yoga teacher, OK, because I figured Kundalini yoga teacher. So because I wanted to be able to manage my stress in anticipation for that. And while I was getting certified to do that, then I met other people, because once you’re in that circle, then you get in. So then other opportunities presented themselves. And so I went from one certification. I still finding I was looking for. I don’t know that if I was looking for I was running away from I think running away from was more likely, I really I just didn’t want to be that, you know, hilar I do want to be that energy person. So I fought it for a very long time. So I just kept saying, if I just get one more certification, you know, if I just do that. So now I’m very fortunate to say it’s been about three years. No more certifications. Oh, good. I finally took some of the ones that I had on my list off the list because I feel complete. Not that I want to do any more trainings, but I’m always open to learning. But all the certification that I have at this point in time are enough for me to be able to help the people that I need to help the people that are meant to work with me. But it was a journey.
[00:15:43] Yeah, that that is so important because I know I’ve met a lot of other people and I think especially people who are well, number one, I think they are drawn to maybe the coaching industry or something like that. And they do sometimes tend to think, oh, I just need to get one more certification. I just need to do one more thing instead of just going out and just trusting that they’ve got enough knowledge and experience right now to at least be able to help the people who are not at their level yet. So as long as you can stay a little bit above who you’re working with, you’re going to be able to provide value to them. What do you think?
[00:16:30] That’s huge. That is a ten thousand dollars tip because we just need to be ahead just a little bit more than the person. They were healthy enough to show them the way.
[00:16:42] Yeah. Absolutely what I know, one of the things that you deal with and I want to go back to a little bit more about money, because it is something that so many people do struggle with. One of the things you talk about is that people have money leaks. And so can you explain what that is and how do we go about finding that?
[00:17:08] Yeah, you know, absolutely. Because we go out and we get things, we get stuff. And I’ll be the first one person to development courses. Right. How many more frickin personal development courses do I need? Just becoming taking an inventory filing or the subscriptions that we order are a great idea. At the time we did, but they no longer serve us. Right. So I know somebody that recently did this, and this is a high earner, right? He at the over a million dollar a year range and he when he did this, he started putting counseling the three ninety nine. The four ninety nine said nine ninety nine. So it’s about taking an inventory of what money is going out and are you really using it or you know, doing combinations like you can bundle your phone on the Internet. Right. So it’s just about finding ways of where your money is really going. And every single person that has done this is been a game changer because they always fight because we forget that, especially if it’s being automatically taken down. You don’t really it’s not like it’s not like you handing somebody money. Right. It’s not a conscious. So that’s why you can really if you take inventory, we’d love to hear from you. Now, how much money are you saving a month just by doing that, counseling the services that you’re no longer using or combining the services?
[00:18:43] That’s huge. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. I mean, that is that is a really. Powerful tip right there for you, because it is amazing that because you do this, they make it so convenient that it’s automatically goes on your credit card and you don’t realize that you’re spending the money until you get this receipt and you’re like, oh, wait, oh, I still have that. Am I still using that? So here’s what I have found.
[00:19:11] And this is a tip actually that my amazing daughter gave me because she is a very organized person. I use Azana now in my business to help me keep track of things. And one of the things I’ve done is put reminders when certain things are that I know I have subscriptions to and to revisit it and say, OK, so do I really need to do this now or is it time to cancel it? Because I have gotten burned like I know I’m still paying for, I think, a video software thing, and I, I missed it again, so I’ve got to really got to double check and see when that renewal comes due, because I don’t want it to be automatic anymore, because I don’t I’m not really doing video marketing like to that extent that I was doing a few years ago.
[00:19:56] So I don’t really need it now.
[00:19:58] So you’re way ahead of the game. But I mean, but it’s always a good time to in, you know, ideally will be great if you did it. But what if you started doing it every three months, every quarter you just take an hour at a time, 50 minutes instead of 50 minutes a side. And what if you just take inventory and review your credit card statement? What’s in what’s coming in? Because that’s going to help you buy your money. That’s step one. But what if you start putting that money towards a what I call possibility account? I like that. Tell me more account is where you’re going to start putting money in to replace the tires, to replace your refrigerator, to take a vacation, to invest. It’s a possibility. Count that which means that the possibilities are endless. It could be for anything. It could be three months of your monthly obligations that could go in. Yeah, but the bonus to that once you start that account is that when you begin to watch that account grow, it makes it a lot easier to say no to some of the shiny objects that come your way. That’s true, right? Because you like, OK, do I want to spend this to one dollars here or do I want to put it into the possibility count and help it even go higher, increase much quicker. Yeah, that’s the magic. I really enjoy the possibility account.
[00:21:30] Yeah. That’s a good one. I like that too. Yeah.
[00:21:33] And one thing too is when you have even big expenses that you pay off, like for instance, we’ve actually just made the last payment on my husband’s car, so I intend to actually now put that monthly payment aside into savings now because I was it was already in the budget. I was spending it anyway on the car payment. But now I can put it aside so that when it comes time for him to be able to when he’s going to want to replace the car, we’ll have a nice down payment and set aside already.
[00:22:04] Absolutely. But we want to give something to the I call it the monkey. The monkey, the monkey. Chatter What if you take just a small portion, maybe like half the payment or a small portion and go out and celebrate? Oh, I like that idea. A little treat to treat. And that’s another thing is like as you finding your money leaks in as you’re canceling things right. Make a list of at least five things on the list. And these are the five things that you want to do, all of them, or one of the things you’re going to do to treat yourself. And however, well, that treat the reward should not put you into that. That’s not what this is about, exactly what it’s about. But it could be you’re going to take yourself to a drive somewhere, whether it’s to the beach, to the mountains. So you are going to have to you’re going to spend a little bit of. But it’s not you’re going to go on manicure, pedicure. You going to go for a massage. You’re going to go for a nice meal. Now, one of my clients, a treat to her, was getting her car washed. Right. So it does it’s a small investment, but it’s telling your mind and your brain what you want to do. It’s magical.
[00:23:19] Yeah, that’s so that’s so important. I don’t think we realize how important that is actually to. That that rewards because everyone we forget, I think as adults, you know, when we were kids, we do get rewarded for it, whether it’s good grades or maybe even if it’s just simple praise for doing something good. But as adults, we don’t necessarily get all that kind of positive reinforcement. So to be able to. Positively reinforce yourself is good rather than relying on someone else, but being able to treat yourself like you said, I think that’s that’s a wonderful way to do it. You’ve mentioned that you’ve worked with coaches and and I know I have to. And when do you when is it important that I think for someone to maybe to start working with a coach? Because I know so often we try to do everything on our own, but it’s that becomes tiring and can be actually expensive sometimes trying to do everything on your own. So when do you think it’s good for people, especially if they’re struggling with their money? Maybe they’re having some issues and trying to find leaks and just or change their beliefs about money upgrade.
[00:24:42] We want to exchange. Yeah, we want to exchange. I like that. I say when you’re not getting what you want, if you want to say struggling, but if things are hard, right. If the clients that you’re wanting to work with or work is not going your way and things seem to come up, I mean, whether you get a flat tire when you get a ticket, all these things keep showing up and you’re not getting the outcome that you want, whatever that may be, because everybody has different things that if you’re not getting the outcome, absolutely. It is time for you to go out and work with somebody, the coach, and talk to the coach. Right. And I have worked with many, many, many coaches and some of them I knew I shouldn’t be working with them because we were not in alignment, but I got carried away. I didn’t ask enough questions, so ask questions. And most importantly, are you in alignment? Right. Are they a fit? Don’t worry so much about what they promise are going to do. But what I go back to the feeling was this to feel like they’re in alignment with what you want to achieve them. Crucial, right. Because you’re going to be working together and it has to be the trust.
[00:25:58] Right. And it has to be the mutual respect to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t be afraid to question, you know, and you’ll know at the end of the day, trust your intuition, because if they’re in alignment, then you’ll know that the person next to, you know, is like somebody will show up and like, oh, my God, I have to work with this person. The last client we met once we were at a networking event, we set up a time to call. And she’s like, I don’t know why, but I need to work with you. I said, OK, in. And it was truly, truly amazing. And it was a phenomenal experience for both of us. Yeah, but a coach can see your blind spots. The purpose of you getting your coach is because they’re not in your business, they’re not in your life, and they’re going to be able to help you see the bigger picture. And most importantly, they’re going to guide you. I’m going to do the work for you because I believe coaches to provide you with the tools and empower you. It’s not I’m not going to do it for you.
[00:27:04] You’re right. Yeah. Yeah. Because you’re not going to get well, you might get some results maybe, but not really. It’s because it’s not going to be ingrained in you. It’s not going to be something that you’re going to be able to repeat because it’s not something that you’ve. Really, if you’re physically done or just done the mental work, whatever it is, but yeah, you absolutely need to do it. And what is? I found for me that one of the important components of this sometimes is when you’re working with if a coach is having an accountability partner. So why? Because I know this is something that I think you you believe in as well. Why is it good to have somebody there to hold you accountable?
[00:27:54] Absolutely. And I’m actually right now part of an accountability. We check in and on Fridays we say, well, we’re going to do and then we check in on Wednesdays and then Fridays we report. So Fridays we report. We set The Chieftains for the following week and then Wednesday said check in point. And it just blows my mind how many people constantly are just not achieving the goals. Something needs to change, but for me, but not because he helps you accountable. So the two there’s four areas that I personally think and this accountability is part and the two areas that if I didn’t have this program for me and this is personally is working out and connecting with friends, I’m great at the business part. I’m great at my meditation. But if you have this accountability, I got to be honest, the work out of it, like, well, maybe today I’m keeping in touch and connecting with friends that will go by that I wouldn’t be committed to that. But to me, accountability is that person is going to help you say you’re going to do this and do it. One of the best things I have found, and it was just recently mentioned at the event that we met, actually it’s having a three people have the comment. So let’s say that I would hold you accountable for the things that you want to do and then somebody else will hold me accountable for what I’m going to do. And then you would hold accountable the third person.
[00:29:23] So that we don’t mean it makes it very clear I like that idea because I’ve been I was in a group coaching, masterminding program where we had accountability buddies and and so but sometimes and this was over a year long time. So each I think was each quarter, I think we changed. But maybe it was even every month. I think we might have had a new body and some were better than others at helping you to stay accountable. But I love the idea of having three people in the group. So that way, even two, if maybe one person does happen to, you know, something happens, whatever, then you’ve still got the other two can can even still help out. Because if you lose the one and it’s just you, then you’re stuck.
[00:30:13] So that’s wonderful. I love them.
[00:30:15] Yeah. And I think because we all need that. Right. I mean, we’re just at the end of the day, we still we need that encouragement. We need to because for me it’s about integrity and self esteem. Right. I don’t want to show up saying I didn’t do what I wanted to do. Oh, I know. Yeah, right. I hate that. That drives me. So believe you me, if I. So right now I’ve got to tell you my workouts. I said I’m, I, I have for a couple of months and I’m going to workout four times a week. I end up working six times but I’m committed to do it for me. Right. And so when I show up, I’m able to check that box. It’s a little green check. Absolutely. I think because we all need that support. Right. And also accountability partner is there to cheer you on. Yeah. But also a person that is going to be nonjudgmental if something is maybe you’re having a slow day.
[00:31:07] Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. Because things happen and and if anything, the year twenty twenty has certainly shown us that things happen and it can really throw you for a loop.
[00:31:18] And I think even more now is it has been proof of why it is so important to stay connected with other people because you know, so many people have been isolated and especially even people who who lived alone and then they were in lockdown and you can’t go see people. So it’s been so great to have Zoome and I love probably going to be hearing my dogs in the bark in the background. I who knows why they’re going crazy. I’ve been trying to mute occasionally, but I can’t do it when I’m speaking. But yeah it’s and I know I just totally lost my train of thought. Oh. Oh well it’s all right. Yeah, accountability, it’s a really good thing.
[00:32:07] One last thing I wanted to ask you about, because I know I think we’re probably going to have to wrap this up in a minute, but I was looking at your LinkedIn profile and some stock, and I love it. I love it. Well, it said something about there that you are a vessel for Ninth Dimension Energy. And I was like, I think I heard somebody else mention that to me once, but I would love to know what that is.
[00:32:34] And why is that important? Well, it’s it I think of it is all of the certifications that I have, the Reiki teacher, Reiki Master Family Constellations. I learned so much from that as well. It’s just like a different radio station. It’s just channel. I mean, now for me, what happened when I did receive the ninth dimension is that it put all of my certifications into a gorgeous Tiffany box. Right, so that it does only whatever is needed. So it’s another certification that actually that was my last one because it just to me, it just brought everything together and it just made it incredibly laser focus, very gentle, but incredibly powerful.
[00:33:23] You very good. All right. Cool. Pretty awesome. Yeah, well, good. Now, I remember we were talking about the pandemic. There we go. I got sidetracked by my dogs there for a moment, but. Yeah. Well, is there any other. I know we kind of mentioned a bunch of things, different tips that people can do. Is there any other wealthy habit that we can get into that would be useful to help help us to be able to cultivate more abundance in our life?
[00:33:57] Is there anything else that I this I took from my 20 years in the real estate underwriting that was a real estate underwriter. So I was the person that either approved or denied the mortgage loans that lots of people were there. But the one thing that I did see based on tax returns is that the wealthy always put pay themselves first. They always put themselves first. Right. And I say it doesn’t matter. I know there’s a lot of people out there that say you should put 10 percent in five percent. I say that’s a phenomenal place to shoot for a start where you are now. Yeah. You’re able to put away twenty five dollars a month. Right. Start there, be consistent with it and then increase it. Yeah. Maybe double it in a few months. That’s right. But the consistency, the amount doesn’t matter. Start today and then be inconsistent because that’s when you’re going to begin to build that possibility accounts. And this is something that they always do, no matter what amount is coming in. They always take a portion and put it into investment, whatever that may be for them. Right. But start building your possibility. Count the wealthy, do it. I think we should do.
[00:35:13] Absolutely. Yeah, well, I think that is great advice and that’s a good place to end it. But one last question. If someone wants to learn more about you and and, you know, possibly work with you and help to clear out some of those emotional baggage that they’re carrying around to help you, maybe you can help them get rid of it and dump it somewhere on the side of the road. What’s that? What’s the best place for people to connect with you?
[00:35:42] The best way is my website ideas dot com. My name is dot com. I also have a business pays chella. Those are the two places that you can connect with me. I would love to have a conversation and see how I can best support you. It’s been so much fun.
[00:36:01] It has been. I’ve really enjoyed it and I’m so glad that we got to meet and see. That’s why, you know, going attending networking events and things like this and masterminding. That’s what we got to do. We got to mastermind with different people. It’s so important to put yourself out there because you never know who you’re going to meet. You never know what relationships. And you could find a new accountability partner or or to inform a triad.
[00:36:27] So absolutely not. And I’m delighted we did this. I’m delighted we met and I look forward to staying in touch.
[00:36:33] Absolutely. Well, thank you so much. And thank you. Everyone out there who is listening or watching on YouTube. I appreciate you. And until next time, as always, I encourage you to go out there and live fully, love deeply and engage authentically.
