Becoming Vibrant - 4 Dec 2020: Day 8
Let’s get back to my quest to answer the question: how can we age with vibrancy? Just to recap, I have identified nine key areas of life that I believe need to be balanced in order for us to achieve and maintain our vibrancy. They are:
Today, we are talking about Financial Vibrancy. For me, this is the biggest area that is seriously out of whack! For years, I’ve tried really hard to achieve my long term goal for this area: to become the type of person that is independent, secure and abundant. But man oh man, this is currently not my reality and I have shed countless tears around this subject, some even on-line!
Financial Vibrancy is the area of Income and Abundance.
We should all cultivate the ability to understand and make well-informed financial decisions, right? But how come no one ever really teaches us that… especially us women? A healthy financial life means there is enough money coming in to cover costs and repay debts plus, there is money being set aside for emergencies and retirement. But Financial Vibrancy also refers to how successful we are at expense management and how we think about money.
There’s even a money mindset index for it:
1. severely financially stressed
2. moderately financially stressed
3. mildly financially stressed
4. financially secure
For me, I’d rate myself a 1 because I’m constantly stressing about money. But in reality I’m more like a 3 because I always seem to have just enough to do what I need to do. I think my perception and my reality are severely misaligned.
We’ll take a seriously deep dive into this subject as the process unfolds. Until then, how are you going with your financial vibrancy? What do you rate yourself on the above index. Have any great stories of financial recovery or are you feeling decidedly impoverished like me?

THIS IS ME
A SMALL INTRODUCTION. I left Canada to marry a wonderful Aussie man and was just settling into motherhood when he suffered a stroke from a bad neck manipulation. It was a difficult time and I was left to take care of my baby, my husband and maintain the household on my own. I was exhausted and quickly realised that if I didn’t take care of myself, my health would fail and my family would fall apart. I refused to let that happen, so self-care became my focus.
IT TOOK TIME. But I got through it and was determined to turn my experience into a blessing. I left my career in architecture and started Kaya Jewellery, where I create meaningful keepsake pieces that bring comfort and hope, helping people get through their difficult times, just as I did.
To support people in their wellness journey, our designs combine meditation and positive affirmations with healing crystal gemstones and lava beads to diffuse essential oils.
Wear them to help you get past your challenges so you can reclaim your vibrancy. You’ll feel the positive energy that is infused in your special piece and it will help you move forward. I know you’ll love yours.
Sending hugs, Marlowe 💖
