Finding New Avenues to Abundance

Let’s imagine for a moment your beliefs shape your experience here on planet Earth (and they do).

Now, let’s imagine you are someone for whom abundance is easy, joyful, and completely supportive of your Soul’s work (and you are wired for it, by the way).

What else would that someone believe?

Would your beliefs lean towards lack or fullness?
Would your beliefs lean towards connected or isolated?
Would your beliefs lean towards past or future?

Abundance does not require one specific set of beliefs beyond an expectation of having wealth / money / riches.

You could be the most hateful, isolated, mean-spirited person and still have an abundance of wealth.

Money doesn’t care.

But those of us who are heart and soul centered DO tend to care.

So I’ll ask again: If you are someone for whom abundance is easy, joyful, and completely supportive of your Soul’s work, what would your non-wealth specific beliefs trend towards?

The Divine has my back
Everything works out for me
Feeling good is my number one priority
Feeling joyful is my “set point” emotion
Reality is simply old beliefs made manifest
I am forming my new reality with my new thoughts
I am ecstatic about where I am
I am ecstatic about what’s on its way to me

These beliefs are as much avenues to creating wealth in your life as repeating affirmations about money itself.

I invite you to notice how you feel as you read through the list of beliefs. Where do you fall on making these — or ones similar — your standard, default beliefs?

Money Love

The Spiritual community (myself included) talks a lot about the concept that money is of the Divine and therefore the same energy as love.

Somehow that’s supposed to make it easier to be in relationship with money, because love is easy, right?

The energetic truth is love and/or money can be as easy or as hard as we make them… but we are human beings and there are no more complicated concepts than love and money.

As always, the place to start is with awareness. Where are you resisting the flow of love, the flow of money? What is the “pinch point” that seems so normal to you (because that’s what life has shown) but is a misunderstood belief, which stops your connection with all things Divine?

Here are some questions to get you started. On a scale of 1-10, where 1 is not at all and 10 is YES absolutely, rate yourself on the following statements:

  1. My value is separate from the money I make.
  2. It is easy for me to receive.
  3. The world is conspiring for good on my behalf.
  4. I am being the partner to money that I would want for myself.
  5. I love the energy, the freedom, the ease of money.
  6. The better I feel, the more money flows into my experience.
  7. Past money experiences are based on my past thoughts and therefore do not weigh on me today.

Your outer world reflects your inner world. No judgment. When you hold deep love for yourself, the outer world can reflect that back to you. If you are willing, start easing out of the old beliefs that hold your inner world in a state of fear, anxiety, worry, and separate from love.

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?

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?

May I be Blunt with You About Money?

You will never have enough money in your bank account.

Blunt enough?

You will never have enough to feel safe, to feel worthy, and to know “you’ve made it.” Money is not the source of safety, worthiness, or success.

Even if you have done a fair amount of spiritual work around money, check in with yourself and see where some of these outdated beliefs about money might be lurking; they are sneaky. It is worth looking for them, however, because as long as you hold money accountable for your safety, worthiness, or success, you push money away.

By needing money to fill those holes within you, you are amplifying the holes; you are vibrating in resistance to money.

The way to have enough money is to amplify your relationship with the source of money: the Divine.

This is not about, “Relax, God will provide.”

This is about being able to stand in your connection with the Divine and to embody the knowing that there is always a flow between you and the Divine, between you and money.

This is about knowing this flow is infinite and in quantities that would boggle your mind.

This is about being able to be the open receiver of the flow between you and money. When you are in worry, fear, doubt, not-enoughness, etc., you are closed to the flow of money.

When you are in joy, love, enoughness, you are open to receive.

When you find yourself distracted or distraught about the amount of money in your bank account, stop. Take a breath. Drop into your heart. Ask your internal Divine connection to show you the image of the flow from the Divine. Step into that flow. Feel it. Embody it.

This is the enoughness you are seeking. Now you get to look for the financial evidence, which will show up in your life on a daily basis. Have fun!

Does Money Spark Joy?

Have you ever had the experience of a process, a book title, or a program keep popping up for you?

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying UpThe first time I heard about Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” was last year. The title showed up again as I listened to a podcast last month. I was intrigued each time. But, then I was shopping over the weekend in my new favorite paper goods store and there it was, a place I least expected it. So of course it had to come home with me.

I will be the first to say that I am not the best housekeeper; simply isn’t my “thing.” But Kondo’s approach to organization is different than any other approach I’ve read about.

In a nutshell, her approach is this: take one category of items in your home (like clothing), gather ALL of those items from ALL of the rooms of your home, pile them on the floor and then ask one very important question item by item.

“Does this spark joy?”

If it does, keep it. If it doesn’t, don’t.

Now that I am beginning to apply this approach, I’m actually astounded by what I have been keeping around me that doesn’t spark joy.

As I was doing the mundane work of gathering all my items it occurred to me that we could ask this question of all aspects of our life:

Does this relationship spark joy?
Does this city I’m living in spark joy?
Does the food I’m eating spark joy?

And then a deeper ah-ha: Does money spark joy?

I’m not talking about the studies that ask the question whether money makes you happy or not.

I’m asking you: Does physical money spark joy for you?

Think about having a pile of money all around you. What are the first emotions that come up? Joy? Fun? Delight? Curiosity?

Or does it spark feelings of guilt? General ickiness? Worry? Distress?

If you have a general distaste for physical money, if it creates an underlying sense of, “I don’t want this anywhere near me,” then how will you ever allow it into your daily life?

What are you ready to tidy up in regards to your feelings about physical money?

A Key to Blending Heart and Prosperity

One of the biggest stumbling blocks heart centered people run into as they ask to bring more prosperity into their lives is they don’t want to allow money to dominate their decisions or their passion. In other words, “I don’t want money to end up being my motivator.”

As I was beginning my business, I would have been the first to emphatically raise my hand if someone asked if this were a concern. After all, it feels like money and heart have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

Except, they actually have everything do with each other when you run a heart centered business.

The more you put the stop sign up for money, the more you are putting the stop sign up for flow in your business. The reason for this is: the fastest way to create flow in your heart centered business is to get really clear on the benefits of what you are offering others.

The more you have clarity on the benefits, the more you are able to a) amplify your belief in what you have to offer and b) amplify the expectation that what you offer will help those who are part of your tribe.

Belief and expectation is the engine of the Universe. These being-states are highly magnetic; they attract your tribe and your tribe honors your service through an exchange of money.

If you are consciously or unconsciously saying STAY AWAY MONEY, you are putting a huge kink in your flow of not only money, but also the people who you are here on this planet to serve.

You don’t need to make money your main motivator to allow more money to flow into your experience.

What you do get to do, if you are willing, is to have a better and better understanding of who you are as a Soul and what you are on this planet to offer. Spend your time amplifying your knowing of who you are. Stand firmly in your gifts and talents, and honor the transformation you are offering others. Not everyone will be interested and that is actually for the best. That simply means you are fully living YOU and attracting those who need your offer.

When you build your belief in yourself based on your gifts and talents at the soul level, ego gets to stay out of the picture. You offer your services from your heart and you get to fully enjoy the sumptuous life built from doing what you love and providing real, tangible transformation for those whose lives you touch.

I had a fun example of a Universal principle the other day.

One of the positives of having my son off enjoying his college experience is I get to drive our car as opposed to the family van. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with driving a minivan, but I have been enjoying the opportunity to drive something a little sportier!

Another gift is my son left behind a piece of technology — a device that connects an iPhone to the radio. This comes in especially handy because I love listening to Abraham-Hicks when I’m driving, but sometimes there is so much ambient noise I can’t hear the speaker on my phone very well.

Now, this little device works by using an FM station setting on the radio. The only downside to this is occasionally, when you pass certain kinds of wires, or get in range of other kinds of signals, static comes on instead of what’s playing on my phone. It had been so long since I’d used the device, I’d forgotten the inconsistency.

So one day last week I’m tooling along, enjoying the sun on my face as I drive, hearing the words of Abraham. We are getting to a really juicy part, I up the volume, so I can catch every word… and all of a sudden there’s static. Complete frustration.

When I finally am able to stop at a stoplight, I lean over and can see the track is still playing, I just can’t hear it. I turn everything off, feeling really frustrated.

Then I had to laugh: What a perfect metaphor for how many of us experience the divine and prosperity.

The Divine, source of all abundance, is constantly with us, constantly speaking to us, constantly guiding us to our greater expansion and good.

And yet we humans throw up resistance all the time: When am I finally going to breakthrough? When is it going to happen for me? I’ve been working so hard and the same thing keeps happening. There must be something wrong with me. I’m afraid I’m not going to get what I want.

This resistance acts like static, not only obscuring the voice of the Divine, but physically stopping our flow of abundance.

Where do you have the most resistance to hearing the Divine and/or receiving your flow?
