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.

It Really Is All About The Partnership

Every couple of months or so, I get an advertisement for a product that is purported to teach you how to command money from the Universe.

In some ways, I get that word in relationship to money. After all, most of us have given away our power in our relationship with money. Either it feels like making money involves some sort of a magical formula (meaning there’s some sort of trick to it that we haven’t figured out) or it will only come when it wants or after great struggle.

Being able to COMMAND money as opposed to any of those powerless places feels better.

Yet, please remember, you are truly in partnership with money. If you were in a partner relationship, how would it feel to be commanded? Is that a relationship built on trust and love? Are you really going to want to stay in that relationship? How long would you last if your partner were always commanding you?

As human beings, we are here in a co-creative relationship with the Divine, Infinite Intelligence, Nature, God. Money is part of that relationship.

My invitation to you: what qualities do you want to have in your relationship with money? Is there anything that you want to let go about your beliefs about money, so you can fully claim your seat at the co-creative table?

The more you can gain clarity around each of these questions, the easier it will be to have a sustainable flow of money in your day-to-day life — in a way that feels simple, clear, and joyful.

The Intention That Will Change Your 2013

A couple of weeks ago, a friend and colleague of mine recommended a new resource to me for Flower Essences. From the moment I opened the webpage, I was absolutely enthralled and knew this was a business I would continue to have a relationship with for a very long time … and I wasn’t even a customer yet!

Later that evening, I was still thinking about this wonderful new resource and began asking the question, “Why am I so drawn in?” Is it simply because Flower Essences are what I need right now?

And yes, that was part of the answer.

However, the deeper answer was I could feel the woman who creates these Flower Essences is completely tapped in and living from her gifts. Every single word on her website and in her guide flows directly from who she is at a soul level.

Clearly, I am one of her tribe, one of her people; my whole system could tell from the moment of my first interaction.

Perhaps the reason this experience was so powerful for me is that I have been receiving so many messages from Source that the key to creating a prosperous, fertile business is to BE YOU; to fully embrace your gifts, and share them with the world without apology (or agenda).

This is terrifying for many of us and I do include myself here. However, as I have shared more and more of myself, as I have opened to using my soul given gifts, my business — the prosperity, the joy, the ease — has changed radically.

As you set your intentions, commitments, and resolutions for the upcoming year, I invite you to add one to the top of your list: Be Myself. Then do whatever it takes to put this intention into motion. Maybe it’s first learning about who you really are at a Soul Level. Or, it’s about clearing out fears of being judged if you show your true self. Or, maybe it’s improving your confidence and beliefs that there are people in the world who are waiting for you.

Do whatever you need to do — internally or externally — to make the commitment to be yourself in 2013. The part of the world that is your tribe is waiting for you.

Are You “Diss-ing” Money?

What is your favorite form of abundance or prosperity?

Not the form of abundance or prosperity you NEED, but the one that is your absolute most favorite?

For me, it’s the full sense of abundance I feel when I am sitting around the dinner table with my husband and three kids. My oldest will go off to college next year and so I am soaking up the abundance of love and laughter with her every second I can.

Family is my absolute favorite form of prosperity. We all have our favorite forms, what’s yours? Prosperity of time, love, people, relationships, family, money?

However, this designation of a favorite can come at the expense of experiencing other forms of prosperity.

At the end of the day, I want to be known as a Mother. To be surrounded with love. No amount of money could ever fill me the way being a Mother does.

Ah. But there the reasoning begins to take me in a wonky direction: judgment about the types of prosperity. Mothering comes ABOVE money. This creates a huge stop sign to money saying, “No thanks, family is all I need from the Pot o’ Prosperity. I’m good.”

Not exactly the message I wish to send.

For many heart and spirit based entrepreneurs, I believe we unintentionally “diss” money. Perhaps it’s as strong as believing there’s something wrong with wanting money. However, I actually believe it’s a little more subtle than that in many cases.

We’re simply ranking how we wish to experience prosperity; feeling like perhaps we only get a couple of options. Or, that we want to make sure we get the kind that will make us the most happy and joyful.

In reality, we can have the whole Pot o’ Prosperity. Every last drop.

Take a moment and consider how you rank the types of prosperity. Where could you invite more kind into your daily experience?

Stop Chasing Money…It’s Not Out There

Here’s what I’m noticing about so many spiritually focused business owners, myself included:

We spend so much time chasing what we want: the money, the time, the freedom, and the safety of having all that we want present.

But, here’s the thing. We’re chasing something we’re never going to be able to find, at least not in a joyful sustainable way. Not because we can’t have sustainable money, time, freedom, or safety, but because it doesn’t come from out there.

All of these achievements start from inside of us, from knowing that we already hold the seeds of everything we need right within us. It’s all right here.

Life here on Planet Earth has a funny way of covering up this Truth. Spiritually focused business owners typically have large amounts of physical evidence proving that we don’t have what it takes (in the form of debt, difficult relationships, business that takes all our time). Intellectually, we know we have everything we need, but our hearts are still broken in many ways, secretly fearing that indeed we don’t have what it takes.

And because of that, there’s often some work that needs to be done in order to remember and fully embody this truth. However, so often, we do the work still from the chasing mentality — we have to heal, we have to clear, we have to (fill in the blank), so we can be attractive to whatever it is we want. What’s funny about this is from the chasing mentality, we simply end up repelling the very things we are seeking because we are reaching outside of ourselves for validation, pleading to be given what we so deeply desire, still activating and creating from that broken heart within us.

We don’t heal, shift beliefs, change our stories, clear our chakras because we need to be somebody different. We do all of these action steps, so we remember: remember that we are already whole. Remember that we are already worthy. Remember that we are already perfect. Remember that we are Divine.

When you create from here…oh my, the manifestations come fast and furious, easily and joyfully, sustainably.

How Authentic is Your Voice?

What is the most important quality you need to embrace in order to have a fertile, prosperous business?

When I first started in business, I would probably have answered that question with something that related to a business skill. What I’ve learned, though, in my last 11 years in business is the most important quality is authenticity.

What do I mean by authenticity?

To me, authenticity is about having an intimate understanding and love of your gifts, talents, connection to your purpose and the Divine, and having the courage to speak from that place.

This is not a task for the faint of heart!

Speaking from a place of authenticity creates a sense of vulnerability. You are putting YOU out there for all to see.

This is why I included the word “love” in the description. To be able to speak authentically, you must have a deep love and belief in your own value. This deep love and belief will sustain you when you inevitably run into someone who perhaps doesn’t agree with your viewpoint.

The gift of stepping into authenticity is a huge one: you now stand in a vibration that attracts to you those people whom you are meant to serve. You stand in a vibration that draws those ideal clients who are eager to work with you. You stand in a vibration that allows prosperity to flow in many, many fun ways.

What is Growing From The Seeds You Are Planting?

In this time of renewal, of laying seeds that will nurture you for years to come, in this spring energy, I have to ask: in what kind of soil are you planting your seeds of connection with your potential clients?

Are your seeds planted in a bed of soil nourished by your deep connection to your own Source, by your focus on your purpose, by love, by expectancy?

Or, are the seeds planted in a bed of soil depleted by yearning, need, and fear? Clearly, over time, we’ve seen that fear in marketing works. People do buy.

However, what I’m learning, seeing, and feeling is this is no longer sustainable. It takes you far away from joy in your own life, away from your deeper purpose here on the planet, away from true prosperity. Plus, the world is changing.

So how do you make the shift away from using fear within your own marketing? Heal your own fears, so you yourself can step into a deeper connection with Source. The deeper trust you need and want will always be provided, a deeper love of yourself and your value.

When you stand in a place of love for yourself and your gifts, in a place of truly trusting the Universe to work with you, the business that unfolds for you will be Soul-satisfying, engaging, overflowing, and prosperity in all areas of your life will be magnificent.

In Your Dance with the Divine, Have You Tied the Divine’s Hands?

What does the phrase “co-creation” mean to you?

When using this phrase in conjunction with spiritual teachings, it means creating together with the Divine. This is an amazing gift available to us here on Planet Earth. We have the absolute power of the Divine available to us in every moment; the Divine literally ‘has our backs’ in every moment of every day.

If you are going to be a co-creator with the Divine, be in partnership with the Divine, there is only one rule: you have to let the Divine in. You have to let the Universe truly be your partner.

In partnerships, you each have distinct roles, right?

In co-creation with the Divine, your job is to focus on what you want and then follow through on the Inspired Actions that come.

The Divine’s job is to move the powers of the Universe to make that happen for you.

Sounds simple, right?

Well, honestly, if it were that simple, we’d all have everything we want.

Here’s one issue I see getting in the way. I’ve seen it in myself and I’ve seen it in my clients: we want to control the entire relationship.

Sometimes it comes down to trust.

Sometimes it comes down to having a skewed understanding of the Divine.

Sometimes it comes down to impatience.

Sometimes it comes down to the old stories that we hold about ourselves.

Sometimes it comes down to the value we see (or don’t see) in ourselves.

Sometimes it comes down to fear.

Regardless of what the underlying reason is, the result is that we push away the Divine. We hold so tightly to what we want, trying so hard to control what happens in our lives and businesses, we push out the Divine.

And, the Divine let’s us do it. We’re running the show. If that’s the co-creative experience we want, then the Divine says, “So Be It.” And it is done.

But this makes life hard. And joy-less. And we aren’t able to be in our purpose as effectively.

Take a moment and consider how you handle your role as a co-creator.

What can you let go of today, in this very moment, to allow the Divine a more powerful role in this co-creative relationship?

Enhance Your Intentions

No matter what your intentions are for 2012, I have one suggestion to add to your list, so you may step more fully into a Fertile Business (which includes a joyful day to day life too).

Make 2012 the year of moving from what you know in your mind, what you know intellectually, to drawing that knowledge deep within you and living from it, rather than just thinking about it.

We all carry so much knowledge within our heads. Yet, when we want something different in our lives, we seek out new knowledge instead of deepening into what we already know.

In order to do this, there may be a little ‘clean-up’ work to do:

  • Releasing old beliefs that have kept you from stepping fully into what you know in your heart and soul to be true.
  • Committing to making a choice about how you want to feel over and over again.
  • Being willing to write a new story for yourself — past and present.
  • Committing to being gentle with yourself.
  • Trusting in your own divinity.

What is one piece of knowledge, one piece of Truth, you know intellectually that you are ready to step into fully and completely, right now?

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?
