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.

What’s ready to go?

According to numerology, 2016 is a “9” year. A year of completions. A year of completing the old to make way for the new.

As we rapidly approach the end of 2016 (I know it’s only September, but it will be New Year’s Eve before we know it), what are you ready to complete in terms of prosperity, abundance, and money?

Cottonwood TreeI’ve been spending a lot of time down on the banks of the Mississippi these days, allowing myself to fill my body with the knowing of flow.

On my latest visit, I noticed the beautiful cottonwood trees which line the banks. Because the sand and shore are constantly eroding and moving, many trees have yards and yards of exposed roots.

The more the shore erodes, the deeper the roots burrow into the surrounding areas. At some point, the roots will run out of room because they will be blocked by the majestic bluffs which characterize this part of the river landscape. The tree will fall, making room for the new saplings which are growing up around the old growth.

Some of these trees look like they are barely holding on, ready to topple at any moment. The branches and leaves don’t look so good because there isn’t enough nutrition. And yet, it still holds; that’s what trees do.

As you consider what is completing for you in terms of abundance and money, I invite you to think about the habits and beliefs that are ready to go… and yet you cling to them because that’s what you do.

We make a lot of perseverance and hardship. We celebrate it. We reward it. We believe we will get rewarded if only we suffer enough. If we only hang on by our fingernails long enough, something will come in and rescue us, celebrate us for holding on for so long, proclaiming us worthy of all that we want.

Okay, perhaps I should substitute “I” instead of “we” in the preceding paragraph because sitting on the river banks among these beautiful trees, in the flow of this powerful river, it is the message I received.

While I have invited joy and ease into many aspects of my life, there’s another layer that is oh so ready to be released. What makes that realization easier to first admit, and then honor, is the knowing that like the small saplings around the base of an old tree, there is a new belief, a new knowing that is ready to take root and soar when it receives the abundance of attention once the old layer is released.

Take advantage of the potent energy growing as we move into the final quarter of this year of completion. What’s ready to release so the new knowing of prosperity and abundance can fully take root for you?

What’s Your Money Momentum?

Train PathRecently, I was out on a drive with my husband and as we were driving south, a train came at us heading north. Our paths were parallel, but the speed and momentum of that train was palpable; I felt the impact of the train’s energy in my core.

I knew in that moment why people who try to “beat” the train very rarely win. The chances of a train stopping it’s momentum at a moment’s notice are zero.

And yet we ask this of our money all the time.

We spend hours of every day fearing our money. We worry about whether we are going to have enough. We worry about tomorrow and out into the future. We try to control the flow of our money.

Then, we make an offer to our community and expect them (and money) to buck all the momentum we’ve created about “not enough.”

Not going to happen. The speed and momentum of your thoughts about money are palpable to the Universe.

Start creating new momentum around money today. Where do you already have enough? Even with a mountain of debt you can do this. Do you have a roof over your head? Do you have food in your belly? Have you experienced any kindnesses around money?

Place your focus here. I know “just getting by” isn’t enough for any of us. But if you start focusing on what you do have, you’ll slow down the train of “not enough” and build the train of “sumptuous prosperity.”

Renewing Your Money Story

We are in a very potent window of time right now between the Spring Equinox and Easter. When I close my eyes and feel the energy of the world around me I feel freshness, new growth, and hope.

In the next few days, I invite you to take a few moments, walk outside in the green grass (or imagine doing so if you are in a Northern climate like me!), smell the freshness of the air, and ask yourself the following two questions:

  1. What new growth am I ready for with my money?
  2. What old ideas, beliefs, experiences with money am I ready to release to make room for that new growth?

A little spring cleaning of your money beliefs is well worth your time investment!
