Are You the Frog in the Pot?

Remember the old story about frogs? Put a frog in boiling water and he will jump right out. Put a frog in tepid water and slowly turn up the flame and he’ll continually adjust until he allows himself to be boiled alive.

Terrible story. And yet many of our money stories are just like this.

You started out as a beautiful, healthy, robust frog — a Soul that knows its natural abundance.

Then you came to the planet.

You were exposed to your parents’ money beliefs. You lived life with thousands of other people and their money stories. You listened to the news. You experienced some desire. You experienced some lack. You learned how to *earn* money. You felt good when you had resources and bad when you didn’t. You were praised when you followed a path that others felt would provide you security.

And the money water grew warmer.

You connected more and more with outside forces regarding money rather than hearing your own Soul. You pushed hard and achieved. You were praised for pulling yourself up.

And the money water grew warmer.

You started watching your bank account (both present and future bank accounts) and felt good or bad based on how much was in it. You wanted to follow your passion, so you left behind a salary, but forgot that Source was the source of your money, not a paycheck, so money dipped for a while and you attributed it to your passion, not your connection.

And the money water started to boil.

You recognized that something was wrong, but you weren’t sure what it was (that water was warm and comfortable before), so you kept re-believing all the old themes and stories while you soft boiled from the inside out and your bank account became harder and harder to maintain.

My friends, it is time to get out of the pot.

You can use affirmations, visualizations, mantras, etc. — they are all amazing tools — but they are never going to work from inside the pot. They will only turn down the water a degree or two.

The way to get out of the pot is to remember you are in relationship with the Soul, with the essence of Money. The you that is in relationship with the Soul of Money is a naturally abundant Soul NOT the human experience you’ve had with money.

When you reclaim your abundant nature, when you reconnect with your Soul around money, you shatter the pot you’ve been swimming in. You have a whole new vantage point regarding money. Now your bank account will start to change.

Why Money Feels Empty (and Your Key to Changing That)

Something I hear a lot is: it’s not about the money for me.

And I get it. It’s not about the money for me either. In fact, I don’t have specific income goals for my business. They feel completely empty to me. There’s no drive for me to achieve them. I am not extrinsically motivated by money.

This has created a huge push pull for me as I am continually nudged by the Universe to take my work to a broader audience. How can I do that when “making money” isn’t a particular goal of mine?

Here’s how:

  1. Money is simply the doorway.

    The doorway to a life of purpose, freedom, significant reach, luxury, comfort, joy in new experiences, connection, and generosity. Now that’s rich motivation for me.

  2. Every door needs a key. Money isn’t discriminating. You can open the door with any key you want.

    Power. Ambition. Sheer will. Force. Pain. Suffering. Comparison. Keeping up with the Jones’.

  3. The key you choose changes the experience of what is on the other side of your money doorway.

    Ultimately, it is the key you choose that determines your experience of the money – whether money fuels a sense of emptiness or endless possibility.

The key I choose is: Consciousness.

I choose to open my money door through Soul by creating a personal and specific relationship with the Soul of Money.

This key creates the experience of endless possibilities — all of which connect directly to my own value and values because I have created it with the input of my own Soul.

Take a moment and consider: What key am I choosing? How does that key impact my experience of money? My life experiences?

Stop trying. Know.

Today’s message will be short and… well I can’t promise sweet. It will be truth, though.

Are you trying to create more resources (in other words, money) in your life?

Stop.

No, really, stop.

Trying to create and manifest will only bring more pain and suffering. When you “try,” the energetic message behind it is — well, I’m going to do these actions and hope for the best, but most of me simply expects to get more of the same.

So, what happens? More of the same. Except, there’s even more pain and suffering because you’ve asked for what you want and didn’t receive. Not getting what you want goes against your essential nature — that creates deep, visceral pain.

To create real change in the amount of resources you have in your daily life, you must move into the being state of trust. Knowing. Expectation.

The easiest way I know how to do that is to step into your own personal and specific relationship with the soul of money.

Take a moment and think of your most trusted friendship. That one person who knows everything about you. That “no work” relationship. That person who seems to know you better than you know yourself. That one person you can always count on to “be there” for you when life gets tough, or when you need a shoulder, or when you need a ride to the ER or the airport.

You can have the same relationship with money.

And when you do, you’ll move into a place of trust. Knowing. Expectation of all the resources you could ever want.

Soul Language is by far the best tool I have ever used to create my own personal and specific relationship with money. It’s a phenomenal tool because you are learning your very own connection to both your Soul and the Soul of Money. Doesn’t get more personal or specific than that.

If you already have your languages identified, this is your nudge to re-start your sacred practice and check in with your languages on a regular basis.

If you don’t have your languages identified, let’s talk and get you started. Move into the being state of trust, knowing, and expectation so you can have a steady and consistent flow of money.

Hidden Reason That Blocks Financial Nourishment

Nourishment.

We all crave it at some level.

When we are nourished, we are safe. Protected. Full (in all ways). Satiated. Warm. We have everything we could possibly need and trust that it is with us to stay.

The Divine offers many forms of nourishment that you could categorize as prosperity and abundance: time, health, relationship (with your Self and others), beauty, AND money.

For a variety of reasons, we have pushed money away, labelling it as a “bad” or the “least attractive” form of nourishment.

Maybe it is fear that we will become focused ‘only’ on the money or wanting to make sure we don’t tie our value into our bank account, or feeling if we are to be of service, then money ‘shouldn’t’ be important.

But I believe there is a layer below these reasons, one that often stays tucked away and hidden.

We have created a habit of pushing away Divine nourishment. Wanting to do everything for ourselves. Pushing away anything that even hints at ease or help, or assistance for ourselves.

“No, no, I’m fine” seems to be the general sentiment.

Money gets pushed away even more strongly than other forms of Divine nourishment because we have made money only about our work — our involvement.

If you stand and look at Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, or the majestic Redwoods, acknowledging the hand of the Divine is easy.

But your bank account? That’s all you, right? And it means more if you’ve sweated and toiled, right? Better not receive any Divine nourishment here…

It is TIME to let this one go.

It is TIME to embody the knowing that what is important is we are *being* the fullness of our Divine Self. And to embody the knowing that to do this, we must accept Divine nourishment in all of its forms because it will amplify our ability to *be* the fullness of our Divine Self.

Imagine what you could create from a place full nourishment?

Can You Negotiate with Money?

Knowing Universal Law is liberating and infuriating all at the same time.

I remember talking with one of my very first mentors and he was telling me about the “freedom” I had because I created my own reality.

Reluctantly, I considered his words.

While it did seem exciting, the weight of the world seemed to settle around my shoulders.  What an incredible amount of responsibility.  Only myself to blame if things didn’t turn out in joyful ways.

So I resisted for a while. And then I became curious and started asking many “why” questions.

Why would I have created this situation or that situation?  Why was this painful situation something I’d create?

Those questions led to a deeper understanding of my own personal gifts and life mission, but also, an understanding that we often create (mostly unconscious) agreements.

Agreements about how we will be treated in relationships.
Agreements about how happy we can be on a daily basis.
Agreements about how successful we’ll be.

And yes, agreements about how much money or abundance we will allow in our lives.

Too often we think these agreements are in our lives because of the fault of other people: the government, our extended family, socio-economic realities, the general unfairness of life.

In reality, the agreements are formed with our wounded Self.  The one who looks at the world through outdated beliefs, pain/knowledge that is passed down in our DNA from generations past, the one who made decisions about him/herself because of early experiences.

The agreements are largely invisible because we get so caught up in the physical reality they create that they seem impenetrable.  Unmovable.  Unchangeable.  It’s just the way life is.

And yet, every agreement can be re-negotiated.

Even the amount of abundance in your life.

If you were to take a big picture view of how abundance shows up in your life, what agreement do you think you have with money?

With love and compassion for what you’ve created, are you ready to re-negotiate?

Become a Clear Beacon

Money and prosperity are an inside job. The more you embody your own Inner Capital, the more access you have to the internal seeds that will yield abundant prosperity in your day-to-day external world. The more you embody your Inner Capital, the more visible you become to those whom you are best suited to serve.

Sometimes it helps to have a visual reminder:

Inner Capital Love

Money vs Inner Capital Expressed

So many people are teaching about creating money, have you noticed? I certainly have.

Honestly, much of what’s out there falls flat for me. What I’ve noticed about spiritually based entrepreneurs (meaning an entrepreneur whose personal “come-from” is heart and soul based, but whose business doesn’t necessarily have to look “spiritual”) is that we balk at just “making money.”

We want our money to come through our service to the world.

On the one hand, this can create energy blocks around money because we are placing limits on how we receive.

On the other hand, if we truly understand the Inner Capital model, this sets us up to create an amazing amount of money by being our heart and soul based selves.

When you learn money follows amplifying your own understanding of and belief in your own Inner Capital, you have all you need to create a flow of financial abundance, which supports you AND flows in harmony with all of your values.

What are you willing to love about your own Inner Capital today?

Shameless… A Personal Story

Every chance I get, I share that money is a teacher.

Class was certainly in session for me this week. I had a situation happen around receiving money from other people that created an overwhelming wave of shame.

Shame is an emotion that hasn’t been connected with money for me for a very long time. I thought I’d “fixed” this.

(Hint: if you find yourself angry because you’re experiencing an emotion or a particular type of life event… stop yourself as soon as possible.

Being “fixed” is a mindset that perpetuates the idea you were broken in the first place. While we are human, we are the proverbial onions. At the core of the onion is our deepest wound, which draws experiences, emotions, and situations that mimic the core.

The more re-connected we become, the more layers of the onion become exposed and look familiar. Fear not. You are doing nothing wrong. You are stepping more completely into the fullness of your being. When you look at the layer with curiosity you will hear the next divinely inspired step to reclaim your wholeness.)

After a few ugly-cry minutes, I took a breath, engaged my tools, and had a HUGE ah-ha.

The shame was coming from a young part of me that was having trouble feeling enough. I asked that part, “At that time, who was I measuring myself against?” The two people who popped up in my mind weren’t a surprise, but the thought associated with them was new.

It was true; I wasn’t enough for them — and that’s okay.

Better stated: I wasn’t enough compared with them — and that’s a good thing.

Best stated: I wasn’t them. Freedom.

At that time in my life, I compared how I showed up in the world versus how they showed up in the world, and concluded I was lacking. At some level I decided that different = not enough.

From my vantage point today, I can tell that part of me: I was never meant to be them. I wasn’t enough compared to them and that’s a GOOD thing. We are all unique beings. If we measured enoughness based on our similarities, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

Our enoughness comes from our Soul-derived-being and the fact we are of the Divine. Our expression of the Divine is always going to be different from everyone else. Young souls can confuse “different” and “enough.”

How this relates to money: We often limit our receiving because at some level we (unconsciously) don’t feel deserving, or enough to receive. This old part of me was still resisting receiving until I was “enough” based on old standards that were never mine to use anyway.

Now that I have re-integrated that part of me, I feel a fullness that wasn’t present before and an even deeper level of knowing of my own Inner Capital. I’ve re-opened a channel of receiving and am shameless (in the best way possible!).

The lessons aren’t always comfortable, but money is an amazing catalyst and teacher. What is money teaching you that you are ready to embody today?

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?

Making Peace with Empty

This month’s Conscious Prosperity Community theme is Letting Go.

What happens when you let go of something? When you release something? You end up with an empty space.

That empty space can feel a little frightening.

Think of the word empty — what does it call up to you? Empty space. Empty container. Empty stomach. Empty bank account.

The connotations aren’t so pretty are they?

But those connotations are based on old thinking. Old knowing. One more aspect I am inviting you to release this month.

Empty is actually the first stage of potential.

Empty gives rise to desire.

Desire gives rise to ideas.

Ideas give rise to manifestation of something new.

Empty is possibility. Empty is room for more. Empty is open.

The only way that empty remains frightening is by spending your time getting swallowed up into believing the emptiness and believing the emptiness is a sign of who you are (not enough) or a sign of what is to be (nothing).

Let empty be your sign that you are ready and open and willing for more. Let empty be your signal to amplify your belief in who you are and anticipate the new unfolding of your potential.

Make peace with empty and allow it to lead you to the fullness of your Being.
