Two Questions for Better Money Flow

Two questions for you to consider today in order to increase the flow of money in your daily experience:

What is my intention for money in my life?

Do my emotions support my intention?

The key to creating in all areas of your life is to have your intentions and your emotions in alignment. This becomes particularly important with money because it carries such emotional weight.

For example:

Is it your intention to have money to be easy and effortless?

Is it your intention to have a flow of money that matches all your needs and wants?

If so, then your emotions must clearly support those intentions. How do you feel about money being free flowing in your life? When you receive a sum of money, do you use it easily, knowing more is coming? Do you play with it in whatever way feels best to you (spend, save, a combo), or do you feel tightness?

Do you spend more time asking the emotions / thoughts / beliefs of: Is more coming? I shouldn’t spend this. Who am I to believe it will keep coming? I can’t spend this frivolously. I have to do the right thing with my money.

If you are willing, I invite you to ask yourself these two questions. Get curious about what arises. Then you get to ask yourself, “What am I willing to let go of so that my intention and my emotions are in alignment?”

Power, Love, and Money: Creating A Love Triangle that Really Works

So I’ve been watching Scandal on Netflix. Have you seen it? I avoided it for years thinking it was just a story about an affair. However, after the first episode, the in-depth characters and rich story lines hooked me.

As is turns out, it is the perfect storyline for what I’ve been watching unfold in my awareness about money.

Scale with Heart and MoneyPower. Love. Money. How many real life (as well as TV show and book) examples can you think of where money is tied up with either power or love? Our culture is full of them: from political candidates needing to have millions of dollars to run a campaign, to treating yourself with a “little something new” when you’ve had a bad day, to feeling unloved and unworthy if your customers don’t do business with you.

As entangled as they are, here’s the Truth: Money is a neutral energy. We humans have tangled up with love and power. Because of that, many of us light workers either consciously or unconsciously shun money because we don’t want to be weighed down by the entanglements.

That is one insidious way we are demonstrating our own entanglement with money and power. We are giving away our power with money, so we aren’t caught up in the entanglement of money and power. Truly a tangled web here!

Take a moment, close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Imagine for a moment that you can give power, love, and money a different color thread. Now ask the Divine to show you how these three concepts/threads are tangled in your own mind. Perhaps you even see different knots in the threads, showing you where you’ve had an experience, which has created an even deeper tangle.

Now, imagine you can ask the thread of money to become completely neutral. What happens to the tangles?

As you allow money to become completely neutral, it is like dropping the rope in a tug of war game; the endless back and forth just goes away.

Keep working with this image of allowing money to become neutral.

If you would like to have some additional help to fully untangle these three energies and instead create a flow, which allows for full sustainability, I invite you to join Jennifer Urrezio and I in our new money series:

Prosperity Trap: Expectation vs Entitlement

When you expect to receive what you want, is that good manifesting or is that entitlement?

I’ve had several clients over the last few weeks really tussle with this question. Their thoughts go something like this: “If I expect to have what I want, then I’m that person, the one who thinks I’m better than everyone else, the one who thinks they should have everything they want. A spoiled brat.”

Hmmm. At what point in our lives did we mix up having wants with being a nasty person?

You are hard wired to want; this is what moves the Universe forward. As you discover a new want, you get into alignment with the vibration required to allow that want into your life. As a result, you expand and so does the Universe.

Expectation is part of the process of getting into alignment. You have a positive belief, an expectation that what you want is on its way.

So how did we get so out of alignment with expectation?

We have all had experiences with people who use their ability to have what they want as a weapon; people who measure their inner worth with their outer “stuff”; people who view material collections as a measure of their perceived power. We see them as selfish and heartless and disconnected from the real world.

We say, “I never want to be like THAT,” and just like that, we’ve created a separation between us and how the Universe delivers our good.

Stepping into expectation doesn’t make you a person who thinks you are entitled.

Stepping into expectation allows you to dance with the Universe. Stepping into expectation requires you to deepen your trust and belief in the Universe. Stepping into expectation allows you to hold a positive belief the Universe has your back.

Stepping into expectation is about expansion — of you, your Divine connection, and your heart.

If this is a conversation that resonates with you, I invite you to ask yourself a couple of questions:

~ In my life, whom do I view as entitled? In other words, who am I trying not to be?
~ How am I like/not like that person?
~ How can shifting into expectation serve me?

Invite It In

The Divine and Money are all the same energy. You can call that energy stream: love.

How are you at accepting love?

When it comes to accepting love in the form of money, does your heart look like this:

Prickly Heart

Or this:

Broken Heart

Or this:

Romantic Heart

Action Step: The next time you find yourself wanting to receive more money, instead of asking, “What can I DO to make more money,” ask yourself, “How can I receive more love?”

Truth-Telling: Why I’m Not Enough to Talk with You about Money

Like the rest of the world, I am mourning the loss of Maya Angelou.

Like many of us, as I read her biography, I am reminded of something that was very rarely shared: Maya Angelou started life as a prostitute and Madame in a brothel.

She never hid this information; in fact, she went to lengths to include it in her writing. However, it was often covered over, hidden by those who wanted to “pretty up” the truth. This was done with the best of intentions from the belief her past would somehow invalidate the amazing work she was doing in the present. They were afraid we would judge her.

Yet, her past was an integral part of the source she drew upon for every later piece of work. She could not have written I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and her other extraordinary works without fully claiming her entire history.

This is what so many of us — we heart and soul centered beings — are afraid to do when we go into business.

We are the wounded healers, the ones who have walked our own difficult journeys and have said, “I never want anyone to suffer the way I have.” Yet, we hide our wounding. We hide our secrets.

Why?

Because we are afraid of being judged. We are afraid the very “thing” that creates the juice for what we want to bring to the world will be our ultimate downfall. However, when we hide our secrets, we end up using so much energy to hide that we never allow ourselves to step fully into the light.

I’ve had a small voice in the back of my head for the last few months telling me the reason I’m experiencing a slower than usual stream of business lately is because I’m putting too much energy towards my own secret.

I have so much to share with you all. I’ve been spending the last three months in connection with the Soul Language grid and hearing from each language the special talent and the typical blocks that the language carries in regards to money.

It has been life changing for me and I’m hearing wonderful responses from those who I’ve shared the information with. However, I’m dragging my heels on getting the information out to the rest of the world.

I made it about something external — my oldest daughter is home from college. My husband has been traveling an insane amount. Ya da, ya da, ya da.

Excuses. Every. Last. One.

I’m terrified to put out the most important work I’ve done related to money because I’m scared. I’m scared I’m not enough because of the secret I’ve been carrying in regards to my own history with money.

And it’s time to let it out.

I’ve ridden the rollercoaster with money. In the space of five years I went from being told by our financial advisor that if we simply stayed with the way we were saving and investing, we’d have more than enough money to do anything we wanted… to bankruptcy.

There’s the nasty little secret. Who the #$#^ am I to talk about money if I have a history of bankruptcy? I can’t tell you the number of people I’ve spoken to who have horrible, horrible things to say about “people like me.” And for the longest time, I believed them because they were simply echoing what I thought about myself.

I could give you all the reasons — my husband’s two extensive layoffs, completely draining our 401Ks before asking for help, surgeries, and medical testing without insurance — but those aren’t the real reasons for the bankruptcy.

The real reason? At that time, I had a completely unconscious relationship with money. I never wanted anyone to love me for my money; I wanted to be loved for who I was first. So I pushed money away (this, by the way, is a typical block for those people carrying the Soul Language of Capitalist, which I do).

As I have healed my story, I have learned how to heal my relationship with money. I have learned to have a conscious, loving relationship with money. Better said, I am continuing to learn on a daily basis how to be in an even more conscious, loving relationship with money.

Could I have made different (better) choices, so I wouldn’t have had to go through bankruptcy? Absolutely. Does it mean I’m not enough to talk with others about money? Absolutely not.

I now know and fully accept this experience as part of my core work, so I can be more fully of service to the world. The last part of this for me is to share it. I don’t think all secrets need to be shared quite so publicly, but this was what was right for me.

What secrets are you harboring that pull your energy away from the work you are meant to do on the planet? What secrets are you using as your excuse to stay small for fear of judgment?

When you allow yourself full acceptance of who you are today, and who you have been in the past, you are now living wide open, from that place of complete connection to your own divinity, purpose, and mission on this planet. Get ready for the fireworks!

Will you be judged? Perhaps. I’m certain I’ll lose a few “followers” by sharing my secret. Yet, I can feel my heart wide open, I can feel the lightness which surrounds me and I know the best is yet to come.

Won’t you join me here in the light?

How Integrated are Money and Soul for You?

Last week, I set an intention for myself: To more fully integrate Soul into daily, physical plane, real-life living.

I’ve noticed I’m best at connecting when I’m intentional. When it’s quiet. When I’m in a good frame of mind to start with. Yet, when I need that connection most, like say when I’m angry, I often forget to connect in that moment.

This feels pretty “normal” to me. After all, we each are only human.

However, this feels like the next step of evolution — to be able to draw all that we know about who we are, into every moment.

When we draw all of who we know to be into our businesses, we end up with a business that reflects our values and brings us to life.

When we draw all we know about ourselves and the Universe into our relationship with money, we enter into a flow of money, which sustains us fully and completely.

When we draw all we know about ourselves into daily, physical plane, real-life living… we’re alive in a way that is juicy, full, and joyful.

I invite you to take a moment. Close your eyes and ask yourself the question: How much do I integrate Soul into my day-to-day life? What could shift for me if I integrated just a little bit more? What would I have to let go of to allow this integration on a more consistent basis?

What is Your Money Identity?

What’s your identity in relationship to money?

Take a moment to close your eyes. Ground yourself. Open to your connection with the Divine.

Now, finish this question:

When it comes to prosperity, I’m the kind of person who…

What comes up for you?

… receives money easily and effortlessly

… has to struggle for whatever comes my way?

Your answer reflects the identity you’ve created for yourself — and the Universe is happy to deliver whatever you’ve decided.

The good news is you hold the power to shift this identity whenever you’re ready.

HGTV and Releasing Judgment

I am an HGTV junkie. Seriously. Property Brothers. Love it or List it. House Hunters. Income Property. The only way to stop the addiction is to turn the TV off before the next episode has a chance to start.

Over the last several weeks, one of the programs (Love it or List it) has turned the tables a bit and has taken on their own cast members for house renovations. If you aren’t a junkie like me, the premise of this show is that a designer and a realtor team up. The designer does a remodel of your existing home, the realtor finds you a new home. At the end, the participants decide to “love” their new home or “list” it.

In a bit of a twist, the show took on the homes of one of the team’s designers and contractors.

I was floored. Their homes were in terrible shape.

This sense of amazement didn’t come as a result of a judgment of how they lived, but rather from the fact that these people are on TV all the time, helping other people create homes of their dreams, while their own homes are nothing like what they want.

I suppose I could go off on the tangent of how false TV personalities are — but that is not at all what came up for me.

Instead, what struck me was these people do beautiful work. They create dream homes for people all the time, despite what they’ve done (or haven’t done) for themselves. The results are evident. They know their gifts and use them even when their own lives aren’t perfect.

How many times have you held yourself back from giving your gifts to the world because your life isn’t perfect? How much shame are you holding onto that your internal house isn’t in divine order?

What if you could let this go? How much more energy, focus, and ability would you have?

What If It Really Is All There, Right Now?

During the last Conscious Prosperity call, I spoke about being in vibrational resonance with “solution” energy, meaning: according to the Law of Polarity, there is always an equal and opposite match to everything in the Universe. Therefore, when you have a ‘problem’, the ‘solution’ is automatically available to you.

Our minds so often want to know what the solution is before we are willing to believe in its existence; we want the logical sequence, the “map” of how the solution is going to present itself. Then, and only then, we can relax and open to allow the solution to unfold.

This need to know the details of the solution before allowing it to unfold keeps the solution at bay.

What if we could know, no matter what, the solution is present?

What if we could get out of our own way and allow the Universe the most possibilities?

What if we could trust the Universe does indeed have our back and is SO much bigger, creative, and surprising than our minds could ever know?

Recently I was re-watching one of my guilty pleasure movies, “Burlesque” (Cher, Christina Aguilera, amazing costumes and fun singing), and was struck by the illustration of the concept that when a problem exists, the solution also exists. (I am a complete sucker for a romantic comedy. Yes, I know that the girl ends up with the boy. Every. Single. Time. I’m okay with that.)

As the movie unfolds, Cher (who owns a burlesque club) holds the vision that she’ll be able to find a way to save her massively in debt club. Christina Auguilera works her way up from waitress, to dancer, to singer and happens to uncover the solution to creating the money that is needed.

From the moment she walks into Cher’s club, she is the catalyst for creating the solution. Nobody knows it yet. Cher’s unwavering commitment allows the solution to unfold.

Even before anyone was aware, the solution was already present.

Close your eyes and feel this Truth: All of the puzzle pieces for your most current “problem” are already present in your daily life. They are just waiting for you to be in the vibrational vicinity of their solution to come together and form a beautiful outcome.

What are you willing to let go of to allow yourself to be in the solution energy?

Playing God in Your Business?

I love receiving clear guidance from the Divine. Even after all the time I have spent connecting with the Divine, the clarity with which the Divine will communicate with me still makes my head spin.

What I find interesting is how many different ways the Divine chooses to communicate the exact same message to me: Let Go. Let Me Help You.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t surrender easily. For better or worse, my mind works really well; I’m really good at puzzling things out. So, when the Divine tells me to Let Go… I hear, but I don’t necessarily listen.

This week’s message came from a Soul Language called Bridgewalker (and if you’ve been on this newsletter for a while, you may recognize the name). What this energy showed me was that the Divine’s job is to build the bridges; my job is to walk across them.

In other words, stop trying to build all the bridges.

Stop trying to find the right technique, the right message, the right “fill in the blank action.”

Take more quiet time. Be more intentional. Ask the questions. Recognize it isn’t that you are supposed to ask for “help,” but rather, use the fullness of who you are. Allow that fullness to build the bridges for you.

Don’t just hear.

Listen. Trust. Then act if it’s time to act.

This is where I keep stepping on God’s toes: trying to do it all myself. If I allowed the Divine to build the bridges more often, the flow would be so much different. The bridges are much more likely to lead to places I actually want to be… instead of building bridges quickly not really knowing where they are going to end up taking me.

Where are you stepping on God’s toes? What message does the Divine keep giving you in lots of different ways? How could your business be different if you allowed the fullness of the Divine to express through you?
