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?

Building Your Sacred Container So You Build a Business That Works With Your Life

How intentional are you about the sacred container that is your business? Meaning, how intentional are you about the very foundation of your business?

From an energetic perspective, your sacred container is the heartbeat of your business. The container will bring you business experiences: clients, contracts, JV partnerships, money, etc. Because of this, you want to be super intentional about how you create your container, so what comes your way is in alignment with how you want to live your day to day life.

Let me give you an example.

When I first started my business, I was very clear the container of my business must support my value of family first. I also knew my business was based on integrity, truth, and respect. And, my business has brought me experiences that reflect these “walls.”

Over the last six months or so, I’ve begun to notice that while those “walls” of my buisness’ sacred container are still in place and are still important, I’ve evolved into a place where I am ready to be more specific.

I’ve deepened my connection to Source, deepened my absolute knowing there is more than enough for me, as well as the rest of the world, and I am more than enough to deserve to receive that ‘enoughness.’ My trust in the Universe is at such a different place than it was even a year ago.

Just as a flowerbed needs new dirt and regular water, a business’ sacred container requires regular upkeep. What I noticed about my own sacred container was that I had gotten a little “lazy” about my intentions (no judgment, just observation). I hadn’t shifted my daily practices to make sure I was including all of this transformation within my sacred container.

Now that I have this awareness, I’m ready to begin creating my new sacred container and excited to see where this leads.

How specific are you with your intentions for the sacred container of your business?

What Role Do You Give Your Money?

As you begin to align with prosperity, one of the most important questions you can ask yourself is:

What role do I assign to money?

At its very basic level, money gives you the ability to purchase items. Items for comfort, security, fun.

But very few of us actually keep money at its most basic. We’ve given money an incredible number of roles in our lives. Money is tangled up with success, security, power, respect, and personal worthiness.

To begin to see the various roles you’ve give money in your life, here are a few questions.

  • Can your business be a success without making money?
  • Do people with money have more power? More respect?
  • Does money give you security?
  • Do you feel better about yourself when you consistently have money in the bank?

The more tangled the roles, the more resistance creeps in. For example, if you hold a belief that powerful people have money, but hold a disdain for powerful people, why would your subconscious want to create the situation where you can be powerful?

If you need your business to create a lot of money in order to be a success, but you can’t feel like a success until you have money.

Take five minutes right now and ask yourself, “What role do I assign money?” Awareness is the first step to untangling the beliefs that will allow you to align with prosperity.

What Does Your Prosperity Soil Look Like?

Sometimes it feels like life happens to us.

In reality, we are the creation point. Our vibration is the focus point, which sends the signals that allow or disallow experiences.

We are our own soil. We are the nurturers of the seeds of our life here on planet Earth; including our prosperity.

What does your prosperity soil contain?

Do your beliefs, thoughts, and emotions create a luscious, rich, nutrient-dense soil, which grows prosperous experiences? Or do they act more like weeds, growing up and choking out that which you desire?

All you have to do is to look at the experiences coming into your daily life to know the answer to that question.

No matter the answer, you hold the power to create the shift. The more connected to whom you really are — the part of you that knows your connection to the Divine — the more you release the gunk that life is on planet earth.

Today is a great day to take inventory: how’s your prosperity soil?

Are You “Shoulding” on Yourself?

Do you should on yourself? You know, “I should be doing this…”, or, “This isn’t how it should be….” Oftentimes we “should” on other people or situations that don’t personally involve us.

I don’t as much as I used to, but recently I was feeling really frustrated and found that at the core of the frustration was a judgment about the way things “should” be happening.

When we get caught up in the “should” of a situation, we’re usually a) in judgment and b) feel like there is an exact right and an exact wrong. Not only that, but we push out the Divine as our mind has decided it is going to run the show. As we are caught up into this pattern, business slows because we aren’t tapped into our deep well of creativity, instead the mind is keeping us inside a very strong box.

When you find yourself in a place of “shoulding,” take a breath. Allow your consciousness to flow deep within your body and ask to be connected with your Divine self. Ask this part what you get to let go of in order to move forward.

The more you do this, the more you’ll find you have access to your creativity and to the miracles available to you through the Divine.

Is a Sumptuous Life a “Good Enough” Measure of Success?

Close your eyes and feel the word: sumptuous. Isn’t it a rich feeling?

Does it have any place in a definition of success? I would argue that it deserves to be front and center in anyone’s, especially heart and soul based people’s, definition of success.

When I listen to all of the guru’s out there shouting about six figure success, it simply leaves me dry and empty. Not because I’m not interested, not because money isn’t something that I desire, not because I’m not interested in what money will get for me, but rather because it is so one dimensional.

Not only that, but, focusing on the six figures leaves you wide open to base all your worth on how much money is coming in through your bank account, which is naturally going to ebb and flow. Focusing on six figures leaves you wide open to decide that you are less worthy because that idea you had didn’t resonate with your tribe the way you thought that it would. Leaves you wide open to making decisions purely based on money.

Again, money is part of our physical plane experience and we are meant to have as much as we require.

But, the current paradigm is that money is THE measure of success, the ONLY measure of success.

I don’t buy into that, and most heart and soul based people don’t (thankfully, they are helping to slowly shift this paradigm). However, this leaves us hanging a bit… what is the measure of success?

First, it’s personal to each of us.

Once you accept that, now you get to ask the question: “What is success for me?” As I’ve been playing with that question for myself, the word that came up is: sumptuous; rich in all ways.

While I am here on the planet, I want to live from my center, my soul connection. I want to offer my gifts and talents to the world as I lead from my center. As I do this, life and business become intertwined, each one supporting and playing off the other.

Life becomes rich with travel experiences, intellectual experiences, sensory experiences, heart experiences, love experiences, physical experiences, transformational experiences. These experiences are mine and those of my tribe. They are multi-dimensional and in complete integrity and authenticity with who I am as a Soul at all levels of Mind, Body, and Spirit. In a word: Sumptuous.

Success for me is a sumptuous life and business.

The beauty of this definition of success is that money reverts back to its original intention: a resource. Yes, money will be needed for many of these experiences. However, it is simply a tool, not a measure of success.

Another beautiful aspect of this definition of success is that giving and receiving are completely in balance. I take in joy and give it back out through the lens of my business, through the act of giving my gifts and talents. That act of giving draws from a very full well, which will only enhance my ability to give.

I stand fully in my desire for sumptuous living; excited about the juicy energy it creates and curious about where it leads.

Believing in Your Tribe

Living and creating a business from your authentic being is an intensely vulnerable act; a huge exercise in trust.

This act will bring out all your ‘demons,’ all those parts of you that are just trying to keep you safe, but are well and truly terrified. While these demons can show up in many different ways, one common theme I hear during sessions, “Is there really anyone out there who wants what I have to offer?”

I used to address it by helping people clear the blocks to connecting on a heart level with those people who are in their tribe. We’d also tap into the subconscious and release the fear at the root level.

And it was effective.

However, I’ve found another approach, which is even more effective: amping up your connection with the Divine and allowing the Divine to place in your body the knowing and feeling of the gifts that you brought with you as a Soul. The more you embody the Truth that you came with specific gifts and talents, the more you embody the Truth you have a tribe here waiting for you.

So much gets in the way of this embodiment: believing it’s egotistical to think highly of yourself, feeling it isn’t spiritual to focus on yourself, having been criticized by others who saw you in your light and weren’t able to handle it, and more.

When you remember who you really are at your core, when you embody this deep knowing of your gifts, so much will free up for you. Imagine what action steps you could take in your business if you knew, without a doubt; there are people who are waiting for you to fully express your gifts?

Have You Made the Decision?

What is the difference to your business if you can make grounded decisions that lead you to sustainable prosperity? Huge, right?

So why do we sometimes have a hard time making a decision? As I was just reminded in my own business, sometimes the decision we think we are making isn’t really the decision we need to make.

Over the past several months, I’ve been working with my mentor to create language and the physical form of the next evolution of how I am bringing my gifts and talents out to the world. On top of the work I was already doing with her, I made an investment to do a special creative session; but I found I kept putting off scheduling.

That should have been a clue to me because typically once I decide to move ahead and invest in a session like this, I’m antsy to get it done quickly. But, it took me almost a month to schedule the session.

What I thought was the decision I was having difficulty with was — what is the form of what I want to create? Do I want to bring a service, a product, individual work, group work, or something different to life? I kept going round and round in my head and gave myself the reason that I didn’t want to “waste” my time with her by not having this basic answer.

But no. This wasn’t even close to the decision that was holding me hostage.

Finally, I realized the actual decision I was having difficulty making was: Am I ready to step out in much bigger way? Am I really ready to put my ideas and myself out there in a way that requires I trust the Divine?

While I will admit it took several days of absolute fear and falling apart to realize it, I finally knew what I needed to decide.

Once I knew what I had to decide, I could finally connect deeply with my Soul, which allowed me to set the fear to one side, so I could fully and completely make the decision that, yes, I am ready to show up in a new way. Now I could show up to my creative session and allow the physical form and other decisions to easily flow.

When you are having a hard time making a decision, get still. Get connected with the Divine, with your Soul, and ask the question: what is the decision beneath the decision I’m having trouble making? This will lead you to the point, so you can make a completely grounded decision, which will lead you toward sustainable prosperity.
