Are You Controlling From Your Mind or Creating With Your Soul?

How many books have you read on Law of Attraction so you can move your business ahead?  How many resources have you plumbed to connect more deeply with your purpose?  How many intuitive tools do you have at your disposal?

If you are anything like me, the answer is: dozens.  Scores.  Multitudes.  A plethora.

These resources are all wonderful tools.  You have to know what you don’t know before anything new can happen.

And yet what I have noticed with myself and my clients is that we expect the tools to be the magic.  We fall into the trap of believing that focusing on expressing the tools in our life is the answer.  At some level we decide that we KNOW what we’re supposed to do and that should be enough to change our lives – and if it isn’t perhaps there is some new piece of knowing that we simply need to discover.

Here’s the Truth: The tools are simply the path to the magic. The real magic happens when you open the door at the end of the path.

What’s the path?

These tools simply put us on the path us to remembering that we are of the Divine.  That we came as a Soul with a Divine purpose.  That we have all the power of the Divine at our very fingertips in every moment because we are of the Divine.

Opening the door is all about living from this place of connection.  Not just knowing that it’s true, but living from the Truth each moment of the day.

When we run our businesses from this place of being, this place of connection, prosperity abounds:  prosperity of time, of deep relationship with our tribe, of love of our daily lives, of money.

And yet, this connection can be hard to remember and difficult to live in our daily lives with all of the crap we pick up along the way from our human experience.

This crap keeps the knowing at an intellectual level instead of a body level, instead of the deep resonance, instead of stepping into a connection with your Soul.

This crap also keeps us from recognizing that this ‘simple’ principle (‘simple’ in understanding, perhaps not so simple in the expression of it) is worthy of some time and exploration and conscious daily choices.

This crap keeps us in the place of, “but I know that already and it hasn’t worked.”  Or, “I don’t have time for this.  There just has to be something else because I know all of this already.”

The mind is really an amazing structure – but so not helpful in this situation.

The seed for the blossoming of the magic of prosperity throughout your business and life is already within you.  You don’t need to add any more knowledge.  You simply need to water what’s already there.  I promise.

Here’s something else I promise: helping others uncover the magic of their prosperity is the work I’m here to do.  This is my Soul work.

I would love to help you water that seed within you so that 2012 becomes the year you shift from attempting to create through controlling with your mind to creating prosperity through being from your Soul.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to create through magic?

Many blessings to you throughout this holiday season and evermore,

The Secret to Getting to the Next Level of Your Business

Heart-based, spirit-based, purpose and passion based businesses are all built around helping other people in one form or another. And, for the most part, these kinds of businesses (including my business) are built out of a problem that you had yourself.

The only way to help others is to help yourself first. You don’t have to be embarrassed that you aren’t “as far along” as you’d like. You also don’t have to be perfect in order to help someone else.

However, if you want to keep moving your business forward, you absolutely must continue to heal the core problem you help others with, within yourself. No matter what level of business success you have achieved, the more clarity you have yourself, the better you’ll be able to help others.

For example:

  • If you coach people to write books, you must continue to heal your ability to express yourself.
  • If you are an artist, you must continue to clear your connection to and expression of your creativity.
  • If you coach people to follow their passion, you must allow yourself to deeply connect to your passion and be more and more comfortable being who you are and living from your passion.
  • If you help people reach prosperity, you must more deeply heal your relationship to and understanding of prosperity.

The clearer you become, the more effective you are in the work that you are here on this planet to share and the more attractive you are to your ideal client. As a result, you business grows.

You can take as many courses, attend as many workshops, participate in as many high-level coaching programs as you have funds in the bank, but if you aren’t doing your inner work, your success simply isn’t going to happen.

To get to the next level of business, you must bring yourself into internal alignment with that level first.

The easiest way to do this is by transforming the old thoughts, beliefs, memories, and other energetic patterns that keep you stuck right in your current pattern. Gaining clarity and healing deeply may feel intimidating; but with the right coach, this kind of healing unfolds beautifully and you get to step into the next level of doing the work you love.

Don’t Waste High Level Coaching

Have you ever wondered why some programs, products, and coaching work for some people and they don’t for others?

How many Internet marketing products have you purchased, only to see your business stay the same?

How many coaching programs have you participated in only to stay stuck in the same place?

How many “workshop in a box” products have you purchased, only to find the final measureable result is a decrease in your bank account?

Don’t get me wrong: growing your knowledge and understanding of business structure and tactics is key to creating a profitable business.

However, there is no product created, no mastermind available, no mentor good enough to wave a magic wand and create results for you if your internal programming, your underlying beliefs are standing in unconscious opposition.

I’ve been seeing an alarming trend in high level coaches who at this point tend to blame the client: they just aren’t motivated enough, they just aren’t clear enough, they just aren’t committed enough, they must want a hobby and not a “real” business.

I feel this is completely missing the point: this is a standard stage of growing a heart centered, purpose based business. Expect it. Rejoice in it because it means you are getting really close to what you want.

The answer isn’t that you just need to power through the fear. The answer isn’t that you are a failure. The answer isn’t that you shouldn’t have signed up for their program.

The answer is: you need to bring your internal programming into alignment with what you want to create.

Each of us carries personal responsibility for moving ourselves forward; to begin to recognize when we are stuck in a whirlpool of negative feelings / stagnation due to our internal programming, and then take the steps to get re-aligned; take the steps to transform the underlying beliefs that hold us back.

If you find you aren’t getting the results you want from high level coaching or other types of programs, it is time to stop and get really curious and ask yourself: what are the underlying pieces of my programming that are holding me in place?

Take the steps. Get help if you need to; this is often when an external guide can be really helpful.

When you take these steps, you’ll find clarity, drive, and inspired actions come without any effort. You will be well on your way to creating your fertile business.

Is a Seven Year Old Running Your Business?

Each second of each day your subconscious processes about 20 million pieces of environmental data. If it passed all that information on to your conscious mind, you’d be frozen in place trying to deal with it all.

Not a good situation.

The way your subconscious deals with this is to lay down rules (beliefs). If the information matches the rule, then it is passed onto your conscious mind. If the information doesn’t match, it gets discarded or filed away for a later time.

This is a good system with one glaring exception: who sets the rules?

From the time of your conception through the age of seven, your subconscious is wide open, creating rules/beliefs without any kind of filter. You end up building in beliefs that are your parents, your teachers, and your friends without any judgment about them.

These beliefs become a part of you; they feel like 100% truth.

If you never look at your underlying beliefs, it’s as if you have a seven year old running your life; acting as the CEO of your business.

I learned many wonderful things from my family, but there are many beliefs I took on that run counter to running a successful business: from being a perfectionist to not feeling safe expressing my feelings, to the very ingrained belief you must work VERY hard in order to deserve anything, especially money.

Having those as part of the (unconscious) mission statement of my business was not conducive to creating a fertile, rich, prosperous, soul-satisfying business.

I invite you to look at the areas of your life and business that don’t match with the vision you hold for yourself. Chances are, you have a seven-year-old CEO in charge. Allow yourself to get quiet and tune in to your thoughts; which are really true and which are ready to be transformed?

For each belief you are able to heal and transform, you’ll be one (or more) steps closer to creating the fertile-in-all-ways business you so desire.

Cover-ups that Affect Your Business

One of the core tenets I teach to my private clients is this: how you feel is an important message from Source. When you listen to these messages, you will leap ahead in your business and you will create a business that makes your heart sing.

Yet, feeling more is often one of the most difficult pieces of homework I give my clients. Many of us will do ANYTHING it takes not to feel, so we’ve gotten really good at covering up those sensations.

Recognize any of these cover-up behaviors?

  • Over-eating
  • Over-spending
  • Long periods of being stuck, no forward movement
  • Constant motion, always being busy
  • Escaping to books, movies, TV, Social Media
  • Procrastination
  • Under-earning (and debt)
  • Drama in relationships

Our feelings are incredible clues to the underlying beliefs and thoughts that block us from moving forward. From my own personal journey to feel my feelings, as well as talking with clients, there seems to be several consistent reasons for not wanting to feel.

  • A belief we need to be happy all the time in order to get the Law of Attraction to work.
  • “Negative” feelings flat out don’t feel good. We’re conditioned to pull away from pain.
  • A sense that once you start feeling, you’ll begin to become overwhelmed and dragged under by the sensations.
  • Judgment that says you “shouldn’t” be feeling what you’re feeling.

Do you recognize yourself in any of these? When you learn how to tune into the message of the feeling instead of just the feeling, you learn none of these has to be true. In fact, the so-called “negative” emotions we work so hard to resist actually carry the most power for moving forward.

When you allow yourself to truly tune in and listen to your feelings, you can use the whole spectrum of emotions (negative or positive) to leap your way forward to the business and life that your Soul desires.

Don’t Add Another Layer

Ever since I made the decision I was 100% responsible for what was showing up in my life, life has completely shifted for me. I am happier. I feel more empowered. I am a much more accomplished manifestor in many areas of my life. I am much more aligned with my Soul, and each choice I make about my business draws me closer and closer to living the life my Soul is longing to live.

Yet, I still have experiences that completely challenge me to stay at this level of thinking and belief.

Over the last five months, I have had an ongoing issue with my mortgage company. During the first several months, I dealt with it in what I would humbly call “a spiritual way.”

I visualized the results I wanted. When I had negative communication with them, I would spend 15 – 20 minutes with the practice of ho’oponopono before any further calls. I used all the clearing tools I had in my books. I asked for Angelic help.

And the situation kept getting worse.

I engaged some community resources to help with the issue, resources that have had significantly more experience with the banking industry. They reassured me what I was going through was “normal.” The banks are “out to get people,” etc. I didn’t want to go there but I will tell you, it was seductive to “go there” and get angry. And sometimes, yes, I did get angry.

Still, I came back to my spiritual view. I took a big picture view. I know I’m 100% responsible.

And it made not one whit of difference. The problem still loomed.

Ultimately, the issue with the mortgage company was resolved in a way that I didn’t want. In fact, you could even say, “they won,” in that what I felt was fair didn’t come to pass. They got what they want; I didn’t.

So, what’s a spiritually committed woman to do? How can I have this result and still hold on to the knowing that I am a creator? That I am 100% responsible for my life?

Here’s what I could have done: I could have gotten really angry. I could have spent weeks on end telling everyone and his or her brother about my story. How I was wronged. How they were wrong. I could launch letter writing campaigns to my senators, asking them to please, please look into this terrible crime that is being perpetrated on countless individuals. After all, if I don’t stand up for this, how will it ever be solved?

But where does that “get” me?

On the one hand, it would be a big demonstration of moving up Abraham’s Emotional Guidance Scale — all the way up to revenge from helplessness.

Choosing those actions would allow me to exercise my growing ability to express my true thoughts and feelings.

At the same time, however, I would miss the whole point of this particular opportunity and simply add another layer of “humanness” that covered up my connection with Source, with the learning my soul came here to do, that would knock me farther out of alignment with prosperity.

So, instead, I chose to dive deep into this experience.

I gave myself about 24 hours to be really angry. To b*tch and moan and decry the whole banking industry.

And then I took a breath. Each messy opportunity that shows up for us is an opportunity to remember more clearly who we are and why we are here on this glorious planet.

This opportunity showed me where I still have some remaining feelings of powerlessness, how I want to be treated, where I am still very attached to the form that something shows up in.

Seeing this, I’ve spent time in meditation and in clearing work making the specific choice to feel powerful. To feel heard. To release attachment to form.

I can already feel the benefits of this deeper alignment. I’ve had some amazing opportunities show up on my doorstep this last week and amazing interactions with colleagues. I would have been closed to all of that if I had chosen the other route. I would have added yet one more layer that blocks me from creating the prosperity I want in my life and business.

I’ll tell you, walking my talk isn’t always easy. However, it repeatedly proves to me the power of alignment. And, over and over it proves that spiritual practices aren’t just for when you want something specific. These practices are here to guide you through the messiness of life, helping to continue to ease you closer and closer to your Soul’s purpose, to your prosperous life.

Finding the Flow of Prosperity

Manifestation feels like such an easy concept: simply focus on what you want, feel the emotions of what you want, and life will unfold around you.

But, how do you maintain that feeling of what you want when you’ve been striving for an unfulfilled desire for what feels like a million years? Or, an unexpected bill arrives? Or, the launch you’ve so carefully orchestrated and visualized doesn’t bring the results you asked for?

These are the times when I have to reach outside of myself to create the vibration I want. My mind is never going to be able to take me there. I need to dive into the experience of something that is going to allow the vibration I want to rise to the surface.

Being out in nature is one way. Listening to music is another. Time with like-minded friends is another.

I’ve also been playing around with introducing really amazing poetry into my daily routine. Here is one of the more recent poems I’ve been including. Before you read it, close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Notice your vibration and how you are feeling.

Now, allow the words to wash over and through you.

The Shining Essence
by Fakhruddin Araqi

I look into the mirror and see my own beauty;
I see the truth of the universe revealing itself as me.

I rise in the sky as the morning Sun, do not be surprised,
Every particle of creation is me alone.

What are the hold spirits? My essence revealed.
And the human body? The vessel of my own form.

What is the ocean that encircles the world?
A drop of my abundant Grace;
And the purest light that fills every soul?
A spark of my own illumination.

I am Light itself, reflected in the heart of everyone;
I am the treasure of the Divine Name,
the shining Essence of all things.

I am every light that shines,
Every ray that illumines the world.

From the highest heavens to the bedrock of the earth,
All is but a shadow of my splendor.

If I dropped the veil covering my true essence,
The world would be gone — lost in a brilliant light.

What is the water that gives eternal light?
A drop of my divine nectar.
And the breath that brings the dead back to life?
A puff of my breath, the breath of all life.

Close your eyes again, take several more deep breaths. How are you feeling? What is your emotional vibration now?

What is Enough Money?

My guess is that if I asked 100 people, I would get 100 different opinions that all boiled down to one simple answer: more than I have now.

Since I work in the area of prosperity, the question of how much money is enough comes up with almost everyone. Certainly the perception that there isn’t enough is pervasive.

Yet, each client has had a unique version of what wasn’t enough.

From the client who couldn’t invest in any more sessions because her husband constantly told her they didn’t have enough money (but then confided in me that he insisted they pay for everything in cash, including their current home). To the client who was literally shopping the food shelves. To the client who called to celebrate the biggest ‘win’ she’s ever experienced and in the same breath told of her terror because her calendar for new appointments is now blank. The underlying emotion is the same: fear.

Fear that there isn’t ever going to be enough.

The truth of the matter is: there isn’t one number, one situation, one scenario that will define ‘enough’ for all of us.

The truth is that ‘enough’ isn’t a number at all; it’s an emotion, it’s a decision. This is true whether we literally have a negative checking balance or hundreds of thousands of dollars in a retirement account. I’ve been both places, not always in the correct sequence.

We use money as an expression of our worth, as an expression of our safety in the world, as a way to cover up our own personal shame.

Money was never meant for this purpose. Money is simply energy; energy that can be transformed into the physical, tangible things that we require in our life here on planet Earth.

Geneen Roth says, “The relationship with money, like the relationship with food, is a way we act out beliefs that we don’t know we have.”

I invite you to ask yourself the question, “How much is enough? When will I know that I finally have enough?” The answers to these questions will give you what is ready to be healed, so you can finally know, right now, in this moment, there is enough.

When you are in the vibration of enough, you will open the doorway to your abundance and your physical experience will flood with prosperity.

What are you ready to heal, to release, so you can know that no matter what is going on around you right now, that there is enough?

Vulnerability and Profits

Running a heart-based, purpose-centered business is an exercise of surrendering to vulnerability over, and over, and over.

When you build a business around your passion, your values, your wants and desires, what is the one constant? YOU.

There’s no large organization to hide behind. No corporate bosses. No policies that are out of your control. Just you.

While this is a powerful place to be, it’s also a very vulnerable place to be.

Here’s the thing about feeling vulnerable: when you are feeling vulnerable, the old stories and beliefs you carry about yourself tend to run the show. It’s hard to be a connected, present, purpose-filled business owner when those old tapes are blaring in your head.

Here are the top (3) vulnerabilities I see in my clients:

  1. Being Seen: In order to have clients, they have to be able to see you. However, when you are ‘putting yourself out there’ in new ways, it can be very hard to do it in a way that encourages thousands of people to be able to see you.

    How to know if this is one of your vulnerabilities: This can show up as simply as having difficulty putting a current picture on your website, stepping into the social networking realm, trouble getting yourself to local networking groups, and more.

  2. Being Judged: No one likes being judged. But, this is a particularly vulnerable area when you are putting your heart and soul out there for all to see.

    How to know if this is one of your vulnerabilities: This can show up as keeping your prices low, not putting out your true message (just one that you think most people would be okay with), watering down what you have to say, thinking more about what other people are going to think than what the deep connection within your body is telling you.

  3. Not Living up to Expectations (yours and/or the important people in your life): The expectations we place on ourselves are often so far and beyond what anyone else would ever expect of us. Yet, with all of our years of living, the most common unconscious decision I’ve seen my clients struggle against is the belief they have to be perfect to be accepted.

    How to know if this is one of your vulnerabilities: This can show up as procrastination, not getting specific goals, manifesting all kinds of external issues you have to deal with that take away the time you have to spend on your business.

The best news about this is that when you find your vulnerability, you’ve also re-discovered your ability to step in and be powerful.

When your business isn’t flowing, there’s always an underlying issue; feeling vulnerable and unsafe are two of the biggest culprits. Take some time this week, notice what isn’t flowing for you, and then get curious: what are the thoughts and beliefs that are stopping the flow?

It’s Never About the Money

Imagine for a moment that you are a doctor. Your patient comes in and says she is having trouble getting enough air when she walks; she simply cannot breathe.

Would you focus only on the kind of air the person was breathing? Would you look for ways to have her have more air around her? Would you recommend she “breathe shallower” so as to not use up the air that is around her?

Even without medical training, I am certain you know the amount of air isn’t the issue. Not getting enough air is the result. The issue that causes that result lies within the underlying structure of the patient.

Money issues are always the same.

Money is simply supposed to be an energy that flows in and out of our lives, giving us exactly what we need to live a full, prosperous life. It’s supposed to be as natural as breathing; you shouldn’t even have to think about it and it will flow.

Yet, for many of us that isn’t the case. Since it isn’t flowing the way we want, we start to “knuckle down,” spend less and look for more ways to make more money; but, money keeps being blocked.

Why? We’re looking at the wrong issue. Money itself isn’t the issue; lack of money is the result, just like not being able to breathe is the result of an underlying problem in the body, not the fact that air is limited.

What’s the real issue behind our lack of money?

Of course, the answer to this is as individual as we are, but here are some of the more common underlying issues I’ve seen my clients grapple with:

  • If more money is flowing, you’ll have to address relationship issues.
  • You believe it’s either money or: time, trust, spirituality, family, love.
  • Having no money keeps you safe: Without a large business, you’ll never have to face the fear of speaking your truth to the world.
  • Not having enough money keeps you from acting out of your purpose.
  • It’s easier to have issues with money than to shift our long-term belief that we can’t have what we truly want to have.
  • It’s easier to have issues with money than to know it’s safe to ask for what we want.
  • If you have money, then you’ll have to re-evaluate what you think of “rich” people, their values, their connection with Spirit, their thoughtfulness, desire to help other people.
  • If you have money, you’ll have to be even more responsible than you are now, live up to even more expectations.

How do you begin to ‘diagnose’ your personal blockages? Ask yourself these beginning questions:

  1. What would happen if I had all the money I wanted?
  2. What decisions would I have to make?
  3. What does not having money keep me from doing / being / having?
  4. What would having more money keep me from doing / being / having?
  5. Imagine yourself with the business that you want—reaching the number of people you want to reach, having the income flow that you want. What does your daily life look like? How does it affect your relationship? The way you want to be in the world? How you show up in your purpose.

The answers to these questions are the clues you need to diagnose where your prosperity blocks lie. As you heal the blocks, the money will flow.
