Kate Northrup: How it's spiritual to be rich
We often divide our financial life from our spiritual practice, especially in times of financial turbulence. In her Speakeasy talk entitled, “It’s Spiritual to Be Rich,” Kate Northrup shares her personal struggle with finances, how she finally paid off her debts, and tips on how to achieve financial freedom and happiness.
As she says in her Wanderlust Whistler Speakeasy (click player below to view), “Money is simply about value. It’s about what we value, and how we value ourselves….If you are feeling like you are not receiving enough value in the world, it is probably because you are not giving open heartedly – that you’re not giving as much value as you could in as creative ways as you possibly could be doing.”
“What you want to think about and ask yourself and actually feel when making a purchase or looking through your bank statement is ‘Did I feel expansive when I made that purchase? Or did I feel did I feel contracted?’ That one tool – that one conscious practice, tapping into you as a spiritual being will change your financial life.“
Kate Northrup is a professional freedom seeker and creative entrepreneur. She created financial freedom for herself at the age of 28 through building a team of more than 3,000 wellness entrepreneurs in the network marketing industry. Her philosophy is that if you free yourself financially you can be fully present to your purpose on the planet. She’s committed to empowering as many people as possible to have the ultimate luxury in life: choice. Kate has spoken to audiences of thousands with Hay House, Wanderlust, USANA Health Sciences, and more. She’s writing her first book, Money: A Love Story, Untangling Your Financial Woes, Creating the Life You Really Want, and Living Your Purpose (Hay House, September 2013). She also continues to mentor entrepreneurs through her network marketing team, The Freedom Family.

Wanderlust Festival is indebted to Hay House who helped us realize the entire 2012 Speakeasy Lecture Series across all four festivals (Stratton, VT in June 2012; Copper Mountain, CO in July; Squaw Valley, CA in late July; and Whistler, BC, Canada in August). With Hay House's amazing roster of speakers (which you can witness in person at their incredible "I Can Do It" events), it's no wonder that they helped elevate the conversation at Wanderlust's Speakeasy this past summer. We encourage you to stay tuned to the Hay House FB feed to make sure you know the next time one of their authors is speaking near you.
