Making Room for the New

As we prepare to begin anew, stepping into the energies of 2012, what are you willing to release to make room for all the good that is coming your way this year?

What I am hearing from my clients, and feeling myself, is 2012 is a year that will truly be amazing. Give yourself as much room as you can by releasing what no longer serves you.

Ask yourself:

Where are my energy leaks?
Where am I sidetracked from what I know to be true?
Where do I lose my connection to what I want?

Here are the top two release intentions from my list this year:

  • Unsubscribing from every “expert” whom I don’t resonate with at a deep level. While I don’t have to agree with everything someone has to say and I admire those people who can simply take the ‘nuggets’ of good information and release the rest, I choose to no longer follow someone whose style makes my stomach clench.The reason why there are so many experts out there is because there are many different styles. I choose to release those who don’t match mine.

    Honestly, I began doing this about a month and a half ago, and feel a substantial difference in my ability to stay tuned into my own value and way of being in the world.

  • In the same vein, I am choosing to release — at an even deeper level than before — comparing my work to what others are putting out in the world. We each are here with a divine purpose and we can’t follow it if we are trying to be like someone else. This also means stepping into full and complete trust that we have a tribe of people waiting for us to fully step into our gifts.

Your turn. What has been hanging around, taking up space? What are you ready to let go of, fully and completely?

A Consistent Mistake Heart Based Business Owners Make

For me, the definition of a successful business is one that satisfies you heart, mind, and soul. The work brings you joy. You impact the world with your gifts and your gifts are acknowledged. You are rewarded in many ways, not the least of which is financially. You have all the time you need. You continue to grow as a person and as a spiritual being, and you elevate your work and ability to bring your gifts to the world each time this happens.

Sound good?

In order to allow this kind of business and personal life to unfold, there is one central tenet you must follow: you must fully and completely allow yourself to be YOU. You must fully value the gifts you have to offer and how you wish to bring them to the world.

The Trap

What I see consistently with heart and spirit based business owners, however, is that they are very uncomfortable claiming full acceptance of their gifts and abilities. They seem to be constantly waiting for something external to prove the internal.

Waiting for the high paying clients. The unending flow of money. The big list. The big endorsement from a respected member of their community.

Energetically speaking, this is completely backwards.

How can you be magnetic to a flow of your perfect customers when you are waiting to claim the right to those perfect customers until they show up?

The Mistaken Belief

The mistaken belief that we heart based business owners continue to create from is that there is something wrong with claiming our divine gifts; that something bad will happen if you completely claim your gifts.

I believe this stems from a fear that stepping in and claiming these gifts will somehow turn you into an egotistical megalomaniac who cares about nothing but your own success. That by simply stepping fully into your light, you will cast a huge shadow that will end up hurting those you intended to help.

This mistaken belief is accidently imprinted into our unconscious in many different ways: religious traditions, judgment from people who see our brilliance as threatening (because it shows them where they have work to do), wanting to be liked, and many more.

The Truth

When you operate from full acceptance of your divine gifts, you are operating from your divine spark. In this place, it simply isn’t possible to turn into that egotistical megalomaniac.

When you are operating from your divine essence, you are not only holding yourself as sacred, but all whom you touch. In this sacred space, you only have connection. In this space, you are nothing but authentic and your clients can sense this immediately.

The Invitation

What can you release to allow yourself to more fully step into full acceptance of who you are? What can you release, right now to fully and completely love yourself?

The more you are able to step into this divine place, the more your ideal business will unfold around you.

The Universe is Powerful, Wouldn’t You Agree?

So, why don’t we get what we want when we want it? Why does it seem like easy success, where results simply continue to roll in as we put ourselves out in the world, remains elusive?

We are Motivated by Fear

When clients first come to me, they generally come because they are looking to fix a problem: not enough cash flow in the business, a feeling of being completely stuck, no progress towards the big goal they want to achieve, business activities that aren’t matching with the lifestyle they want.

They are in pain and they want relief. Moving away from pain is a HUGE motivator. This is especially true for us humans; we’re hardwired this way.

In doing the work with clients, we work on releasing the fear, build in some new tools, results start coming in and they start feeling better.

Unfortunately, just like the many other humans on the planet, they stop the new practices they were using. Predictably, results stop flowing, fear sets in, and they go back to the new practices. Does this sound like a familiar pattern? I’ve certainly experienced this over and over — and I’m fairly conscious of the process.

The problem is that this creates very, very slow momentum. Imagine taking a driving trip and each time you see a mile marker showing you are moving towards that city, you stop the car. Sure, you could get there eventually, but what are the chances you’d get frustrated and give up the adventure?

Our Basic Biology is a Major Roadblock

Add to this story our basic biology: our systems don’t like change, even when it’s positive.

In terms of biology, change is dangerous, not safe.

So, when things start moving and shaking and we’re just getting started to get the results, all those old parts of ourselves will do anything to draw your attention away from the conscious goals you’ve set.

So what do you do? How do you break these patterns and step into forward momentum and real results?

Two steps will help ease you out of these repeating patterns, which slow down your success:

  1.  Create a very powerful vision. Add the element of vibration to the vision with emotions. Let this vision pull you forward. Let this vision be the motor that pulls you towards what you want. Let this vision communicate with the Universe so the Universe can begin sending you the experiences that will naturally allow your success to unfold easily and effortlessly.What this does is end the pattern and habit of reacting based only on fear. Reacting from fear only keeps the status quo alive; it doesn’t give you the results you want.
  2. Keep releasing the old parts that no longer match your new vision. I can’t stress this enough: you must stay in alignment with your vision. These old thoughts, patterns, experiences, and beliefs are hard to work against. But, you don’t have to work against them; energetically release them. Make it easier for yourself (and more joyful, peaceful, and loving).

The more you incorporate these steps into your daily actions, the more easily your results will unfold. Soon, you’ll be looking behind you to see who flipped that light switch.

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.
