Since You and Money are in Relationship…

…What is money asking of you?

Another way to ask the question is to ask yourself, “What do I believe to be the basis of a loving, committed, and ever-expanding relationship?”

Then ask yourself, on a scale of 1-10 (where 1 is not at all and 10 is fully and completely), how willing are you to believe that about your relationship with money?

For me, I believe the foundation is built around Trust. So, I get to ask myself, “How willing am I to Trust my relationship with money. And if it isn’t a 10, what do I get to let go of or deepen to step more fully into Trust?” Juicy answers are coming up for me as I share this with you!

How about you? What’s the foundation of a loving, committed, and ever-expanding relationship? How willing are you to bring that into your relationship with money?

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.

Appearances Can be Deceiving

Isn’t it interesting when we look at individuals who are successful in their businesses and from the outside, it appears as if everything is going their way? Such an interesting phenomenon.

I know from talking with enough high level coaches, mentors, and healers who are willing to be authentic that the vast majority of the time this is just an appearance.

The truth is that running a business is messy. Messy emotionally. Messy in the specific details. The people who are most successful are the ones who know who to go to when the messiness is getting in the way of success.

But many of us who have the drive to bring our gifts to the world also come with the sense that we should just know how to do it, that we should be able to step up the plate and just go full steam ahead without any assistance from others. Somehow, there’s this part of ourselves that thinks we are somehow going to be “less than” if we admit to someone else we need assistance.

What kind of assistance am I talking about?

Well, there’s help with learning business principles. This seems to be a little easier to ask for, as it is tangible and understandable that if you haven’t run a business that you wouldn’t know those kinds of details.

More commonly, it’s the help keeping ourselves out of our own way that seems to be the part we don’t give ourselves the luxury of receiving.

I’m giving you permission right now to ask for help. I’m giving you permission right now to create the village you need to build your success. That village may look like bringing on a Virtual Assistant, a bookkeeper, a CPA, a sales associate, a partner.

However, if you only look to external assistance, you are leaving your village without a vital resource — kind of like building an actual village where there is no water source. You must bring into your village someone who will assist you with the emotional messiness too, someone who will help you past the fears, past the procrastination, past the voice of your inner critic.

Just as you wouldn’t visit the village blacksmith on a daily basis, this resource doesn’t always have to be engaged, but you need to take it into account. You must give yourself permission to have this kind of a person on your team. Your success and your happiness as you reach that success depends on it.

It is as life giving to your business as that water source is to an ancient village. Perhaps this sounds a bit self-serving, as I am someone whom you could consider as a resource. At the same time, it is my duty to my gifts and knowledge to share what I know. Over the years, I have talked with so many business owners who tell me, “I just need to break through the fear,” while feeling like unless they do it themselves, it doesn’t “count.” Or that investing in those kinds of resources aren’t “good” kinds of expenditures.

Break through the appearances and past the part of you that believes you were supposed to do it alone. Dive deep into your passions, build your village, get yourself out of your own way, and bring your gifts to the world in a HUGE way.

The & # @ ! Will Hit the Fan and That’s Okay

Have you heard people refer to the “breakdown before the breakthrough”: that place of intense discomfort (and sometimes just plain old fear and despair) before reaching a new level of personal or business development?

But, what creates the breakdown?

Before the breakdown, there’s another step first: making a decision to leap forward. To take that next step in your business: writing that book, becoming a speaker, setting up a brand new healing practice, creating that new product.

When the decision first is made, wow, life feels really amazing and energizing.

And then all the parts of you that are more comfortable in the old way of life (yes, even if the old way of life is full of lack) start screaming and trying to sabotage all the action you are taking towards the new exciting step.

Sabotage can look like procrastination, family emergencies, relationship trouble, illness, accidents, unexpected expenses, technology breakdowns, indecision, other people telling you your ideas don’t have merit, and many, many, more.

If you don’t know what to do to get those objecting parts in alignment with your vision, they win, and you end up staying stuck and not making any forward progress.

Here’s another analogy: Picture placing a great big cooking pot over a blazing open fire and then walking away.

At first, the fire warms the water. Then it begins to softly boil. Then it becomes a rolling boil. Without any attention from you, it boils over and the fire goes out.

Making the decision about what you want lights a fire in your energy system and starts the energy flowing. The Universe listens and begins to send you all kinds of experiences that match this new vibrational reality you’ve created.

The conscious part of you that asked for these changes is ecstatic.

The unconscious parts of you that hold onto your old stories and beliefs start to panic. They start softly and eventually begin yelling. Those vibrations also reach the Universe and the Universe listens and begins to send experiences to match these vibrations.

This is the breakdown. The water reaching its boiling point. The proverbial &#$! hitting the fan.

If you pay more attention to the experiences sent from the old parts, their fear and worry continue to grow and eventually overwhelm and put out, so to speak, the vibration of the new energy.

When this comes up, recognize it for what it is. See the pain, the fear, or the discomfort as a sign you are on the right track, you are creating the necessary energy to fuel your vision.

Get curious about the sabotage, about what old beliefs are being revealed to you. Clear those old beliefs, stay in alignment with the vibration of the new vision, and you will take a huge leap forward in your business.

Sometimes you can do this on your own. Sometimes you need a partner. If you are tired of consistently starting the fire and asking for your business to leap forward, but somehow the fire always goes out before you can reap the rewards, connect with me. I’d love to help you put your gifts out into the world in a much bigger way.

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.

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.
