Are You Aligning or Ignoring?

Do you ever have those moments of feeling, “Wow, I’m really handling this in a Spiritual way,” …and then have an ah-ha moment that makes you realize otherwise?

Yeah, me too.

I had a situation come up last week where I found myself feeling disappointed I hadn’t met a certain financial goal in a specific area. I found myself yelling at the Universe:

“I did all the steps. I was specific about what I wanted. I focused on the feeling. I let it go while still honoring and creating the feeling in my daily life. So come on Universe, where is it?”

In the middle of my temper tantrum (yes, I’ll admit to that), I had a funny feeling come over me. I was yelling at the Universe and having an ah-ha moment all at the same time.

Yes, it was true I had “followed the formula.” I had thought the correct thoughts. I had done the “obligatory” feeling creation. But at the same time, I was still having a lot of disbelief around this particular way of creating money. The disbelief created some sensations of fear.

Because I KNOW I am not “supposed” to have the fear, I started ignoring the feelings as they came up. I reassured myself I had done “the work” and they didn’t matter.

The ignoring didn’t serve me in any way. While you don’t want fear to paint you into a corner, it actually does serve a useful function. Fear was showing me I wasn’t in alignment with what I wanted.

Fear was trying to get my attention and show me:

I still believed more in the fear than in the ability of the Universe to support me.

I believed more in the fear than in the unfolding of this particular situation in divine right timing.

I believed more in the fear than I did in my Inner Capital, which was right there, ready to shine and bring this project to fruition.

I was so confident in my spiritual approach, I ignored all the signals I wasn’t in alignment. No judgment.

I say over and over again that money is a huge teacher in my life — and it certainly didn’t disappoint in this situation. Having moved through the situation, I am appreciative of the opportunity to fine tune the parts of my belief system, which were out of alignment with the creation I desired. Without the signals, I would simply keep recreating the same situation.

Take a moment and think about what you want to create. Are you more in alignment with the belief of the power of the Universe to bring your desire or the fear you won’t receive?

The Downside of Setting an Intention (a Personal Story)

Don’t get me wrong. Having focus, purpose, and specific intentions is essential. Sometimes, however, the middle part between setting the intention and having it come to fruition is messy. And in that messiness, we can get so upside down we forget to continue on the path towards our intention.

Let me give you an example.

A couple of months ago, I spent time getting really clear about what I wanted for my business. Clarity about being seen. Clarity about who I wish to serve with my work. Clarity about loving and accepting my gifts fully and unapologetically. Clarity about how I wanted the business to give back to me, financially and in respect to time.

I felt uber good about the clarity. I felt focused, on purpose and clear about my intentions for the rest of the year. Part of my morning spiritual practice was spent envisioning and feeling this focus and purpose. I could literally feel the Universe rearranging itself to respond to my intention.

And then my personal life absolutely exploded.

My marriage of almost 25 years seemed to be crumbling right before my eyes. I could hardly recognize how either of us was being in relationship. In the space of just a few weeks, I felt like we had stepped on to an unstoppable train taking us directly towards divorce. This wasn’t what I wanted at all, and yet I knew there was no way to live with the situation as it was.

There was no way to be in the situation and be the person who could follow the intention she set with so much focus, purpose, and clarity. I had put a stake in the ground, so to speak, due to my intention and clarity and now it was time to choose how to honor that stake.

There was a point in the crumbling situation where my husband and I both had to stop and ask: what do we want to happen? It was truly a fish or cut bait moment. We were either in or out. And we each had to make that decision for ourselves.

As I allowed myself some quiet space to make my decision, the answer came to me quickly and with new clarity that I didn’t expect.

I knew, with my whole heart, that I was in. But it would require some letting go:

Letting go of how I thought life should and would be.
Letting go of some of the situations I have manifested.
Letting go of how he handles his life and decisions.
Letting go of my desire to “help.”
Letting go of my focus of what was wrong in our marriage and retraining the focus on what was right and what I wanted.

And then most eye opening for me:

Letting go of the story I told about how he lives life impacts my business.
Letting go of the story he has to be a certain way, so I can receive.
Letting go of the story my financial situation has anything to do with him.

And in these realizations, I witnessed the presence of the Universe, rearranging molecules to co-create my intentions with me. This is who I “needed” to be to allow the unfolding of what I really want.

Messy? Absolutely.
Divine? Definitely.

Could this have happened in a less painful way? Probably. However, I have been dealing with the entanglement of love and money issues for a long time. Honestly, it’s probably been since I was a young child. So there was a lot of energy tied up in this issue.

My husband and I are working through the relationship aspect of this unfolding. And I am doing the inner work to support BEING the me that supports the unfolding of my heart’s desires. Fortunately, these are unfolding in a harmonious way. I know that no matter what I am loved and supported, but being in this relationship is part of my heart’s desire.

I am deeply grateful we didn’t get so caught up in the messiness of this big shift that I lost complete connection to my intentions. I recognize the deep connections I have made to myself and my Soul as well as to my sacred practice all supported me in a profound way throughout this unfolding.

Keep setting intentions. Keep aligning more fully with who you are. And when life gets messy, allow that mess to lead you to an even deeper connection. Your heart’s desires are there in that alignment.

Align with the Condition You Want

I love technology. Recently, I’ve been on a kick of listening to Abraham-Hicks via YouTube as I drive to all my errands. Last week I heard a concept that I’ve always known said in a way that gave me a whole new level of understanding (I’ll paraphrase it here).

Most humans focus their emotional-being based on the conditions which are present. Instead, you want to base your emotion-being on the conditions that you want.

In other words, if what you want is prosperity, what does that feel like? Fun? Freedom? Ease? How much of the day are you focused here as opposed to the emotions that come up from day-to-day life or from worrying about money?

If you are willing, I suggest the following practice.

When you find yourself in the middle of an emotional response, ask yourself, “Is this emotion based on current conditions or the conditions I want?”

Then, use whatever tools you have in your tool-belt to shift to what you want. I love EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or asking my Soul Language Team to help guide me to a new thought.

And remember, you don’t have to do it all at once. Small shifts add up to big momentum.

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?

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?

Be Prosperity

Are you being prosperity?

I’ve been noticing something about what happens before money begins to flow in an abundant, sustainable way for conscious people.

Something in our being-ness truly shifts.

The reality is, as humans, we can make money any way we want. Money is neutral and simply flows or doesn’t flow based on what we’re asking for and allowing. If you think the way to receive money is to push hard, be deceptive, and do anything for the sale, money says, “Sure. I can do that.”

As someone committed to being a conscious, light filled person and business owner, that’s a completely unacceptable way to be in the world.

So, we look to the energetic underpinnings of money, we look to the spirituality of money and we try technique after technique to draw money into our lives that is in synch with our values and ideas about the world.

And then it doesn’t “work.” And it’s heartbreaking.

For those of us who want to create money consciously in alignment with our values, we need to make an internal shift. That shift is from doing techniques to create money to being prosperity and allowing the flow. To remember literally that we, as a Divine spark, are of the Divine. Prosperity is of the Divine.

Notice the difference between these two mindsets:

I don’t have enough money. There’s something wrong. I need to do more. Meditate more. Believe better. I need miracles.

I am a prosperous being. Any money “issue” is simply evidence of a small misalignment and I’m open to the method that will bring me back into alignment with the knowing that prosperity is my divine right. It’s all on its way.

The first creates more lack. The second opens you to receiving. When you make this shift, all parts of your being come into alignment with having prosperity.

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?

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.
