Perhaps you’ve noticed, but it’s been a while since I’ve held a Conscious Prosperity Community call. I care very deeply about my community along with my commitments but in addition, I practice extreme self-care, so when I can’t do the calls, I give myself permission to let it go, to not feel guilty.
The most recent call that was supposed to happen was last Monday and I ended up not even sending a notice because I’ve got a virus that is living in my throat. I have very little voice and it’s been more than a week now.
Hmmm. A virus that targets my ability to speak? This is more than just taking time for self-care. Okay Universe, I’m listening.
As I took the time to tune in about this issue, I found myself thinking about all the people out in the marketplace who are speaking about money and spirituality. Seems like I can’t go through my newsfeed on Facebook or open my e-mail without seeing someone new talking about money.
Even though I don’t believe in competition and I believe there is enough business for everyone, something is tweaking me about the entire buzz. I mean really tweaking me.
All the buzz leaves me feeling like people are starting to tune out. Like, yeah, yeah, money is spiritual and I can have what I want, blah, blah, blah. In one ear and out the other.
The less spiritual side of me gets angry. While I can’t really presume to know the motivation of anyone else, I’m left feeling like people are taking on talking about money simply because it’s a pain point. That it’s a way to get clients.
I’ve been taken advantage of enough times that I am not willing to put myself in any situation as a healer/mentor where it might seem like I’m trying to take advantage of someone else.
At my lowest point in all of this, I’ve also asked the question: “Who am I to talk about money?” So many people are talking about it, what do I have to say that is so unique?
No wonder I contracted this virus. I’m grateful for it, though, because it’s helped me shift my focus from the external (what everyone else is doing and saying) to the internal (asking myself the deeper questions).
Each time I go within and re-connect with the Divine and my Truth, I more firmly embody what I’m here to do. Help others create new pathways of thinking, which will help them connect more deeply with their own gifts, talents, and Divinity, so they can create prosperity in their own lives, in a way that feels in alignment with who they are at a Soul level.
I’m also getting hints there is a way for me to go deeper with what I’m sharing with my community. The real reason I’m getting tweaked by what’s “out there” is because it’s time for me to go deeper “in here.”
Nothing that is going on in the marketplace can ever take away from what you have to offer to the world. We are each unique beings, here with a Divine purpose. Don’t ever let what’s going on “out there” be an excuse for not revealing to the world what’s going on inside of you.
Being less you? That’s never going to be the answer.
