End Money Damsel in Distress Syndrome

Have you ever sat alone at night and wished for the winning lottery ticket numbers?

Have you ever begged, cajoled, or demanded the Universe just GIVE you the money already?

If so, you might have “damsel in distress” syndrome.

This morning I was thinking about some habitual thoughts that have poked their heads up from time to time for me and suddenly, I realized with those thoughts, I was acting like a damsel in distress.

That was a really uncomfortable awareness.

I am a strong, independent woman. I am at Mt. Holyoke graduate. I’m a freaking double Huntress (in the Soul Language paradigm). And I was waiting for money to save me.

Part of me saw money as the knight in shining armor. The one that was going to erase all the pain. The one that was going to erase all the suffering.

But it wasn’t showing up the way I wanted it to. And it made me feel like I had been left behind by the universe. That I was the “broken” cog in the giant Universal wheel.

However, what I can see now is money was being my knight in shining armor, just in a different way than I had ever imagined.

Because I didn’t win the lottery, because I didn’t get some crazy influx of cash, I had to do the only thing that was really ever going to work in the first place: I had to change my relationship with money.

I had to honor my own connection with divinity. I had to claim my gifts. I had to claim my voice. I had to show up in a clear current and conscious way with money.

Doing this has led to infinitely more happiness than simply being gifted the money.  Not because it was harder, but rather because it reconnected me with the true source of my Beingness.  From that connection, all is possible — money and more.

Do you know that scene in Pretty Woman? The one at the very end where Richard Gere is climbing up the fire escape with the umbrella and bouquet of flowers, terrified of heights but doing it anyway?

Julia Roberts meets him halfway down. He asks, “What’s next, after the brave prince has rescued the princess,” and she says, “She rescues him right back.”

Relationship.  Connection.  Showing up.  Consciousness. Being a true partner with money.

That’s the powerful antidote to damsel in distress syndrome.

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?

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?

How Can You Expect Something You’ve Never Received?

Open DoorIf you want to create more momentum towards what you want, move into the emotion of expectation. Expect success. Expect prosperity. Expect love.

But how do you move into expectation when what you want is something you’ve never experienced before? Expecting gravity is simple because unless you’ve traveled in space, there’s never been a time you didn’t have gravity. Expecting lavish abundance when you are constantly wondering where the next dollar is coming from… not so simple.

Here are three steps to begin moving into expectation:

  1. How will you feel when you receive what you want?

    Joy? Love? Relief? Connection? Peace? Excitement? Start by adding activities to your day that allow you to experience this emotion now. Get familiar with the emotion. You are starting the momentum rolling with the Universe.

  2. Know that it is already created.

    Your job isn’t to make what you want happen. Your job is to be in alignment with the unfolding of what you want. When you have a clear, conscious desire, the wheels of the Universe begin spinning. Your desire exists energetically. The more you trust this, the more you can ease into alignment with receiving.

  3. Lean on the part of you that has already experienced what you want.

    Even though you haven’t experienced receiving what you want here on the physical plane, you are hard wired with parts that know how to help you create. Use your divine connection in whatever way works best for you (I love Soul Language for this) to receive what you need to know about creating this desire, so it is easier to move into expectation. Your Soul knows how to create and receive what you want.

The beautiful part of taking this approach to creating what you want — whether it is more business, more financial prosperity, or more love — is that you are opening yourself to something even better than you can imagine in this point in time. You are allowing your divinity to lead the way and the results are often quite magical.

Today I Pause

The fastest way to manifest more of what you want is to appreciate what is already present. Often, though, we get caught up in what isn’t here yet.

Here is a reminder to put your focus on what you want.

What Role Do You Give Your Money?

As you begin to align with prosperity, one of the most important questions you can ask yourself is:

What role do I assign to money?

At its very basic level, money gives you the ability to purchase items. Items for comfort, security, fun.

But very few of us actually keep money at its most basic. We’ve given money an incredible number of roles in our lives. Money is tangled up with success, security, power, respect, and personal worthiness.

To begin to see the various roles you’ve give money in your life, here are a few questions.

  • Can your business be a success without making money?
  • Do people with money have more power? More respect?
  • Does money give you security?
  • Do you feel better about yourself when you consistently have money in the bank?

The more tangled the roles, the more resistance creeps in. For example, if you hold a belief that powerful people have money, but hold a disdain for powerful people, why would your subconscious want to create the situation where you can be powerful?

If you need your business to create a lot of money in order to be a success, but you can’t feel like a success until you have money.

Take five minutes right now and ask yourself, “What role do I assign money?” Awareness is the first step to untangling the beliefs that will allow you to align with prosperity.

What Does Your Prosperity Soil Look Like?

Sometimes it feels like life happens to us.

In reality, we are the creation point. Our vibration is the focus point, which sends the signals that allow or disallow experiences.

We are our own soil. We are the nurturers of the seeds of our life here on planet Earth; including our prosperity.

What does your prosperity soil contain?

Do your beliefs, thoughts, and emotions create a luscious, rich, nutrient-dense soil, which grows prosperous experiences? Or do they act more like weeds, growing up and choking out that which you desire?

All you have to do is to look at the experiences coming into your daily life to know the answer to that question.

No matter the answer, you hold the power to create the shift. The more connected to whom you really are — the part of you that knows your connection to the Divine — the more you release the gunk that life is on planet earth.

Today is a great day to take inventory: how’s your prosperity soil?

Are You “Shoulding” on Yourself?

Do you should on yourself? You know, “I should be doing this…”, or, “This isn’t how it should be….” Oftentimes we “should” on other people or situations that don’t personally involve us.

I don’t as much as I used to, but recently I was feeling really frustrated and found that at the core of the frustration was a judgment about the way things “should” be happening.

When we get caught up in the “should” of a situation, we’re usually a) in judgment and b) feel like there is an exact right and an exact wrong. Not only that, but we push out the Divine as our mind has decided it is going to run the show. As we are caught up into this pattern, business slows because we aren’t tapped into our deep well of creativity, instead the mind is keeping us inside a very strong box.

When you find yourself in a place of “shoulding,” take a breath. Allow your consciousness to flow deep within your body and ask to be connected with your Divine self. Ask this part what you get to let go of in order to move forward.

The more you do this, the more you’ll find you have access to your creativity and to the miracles available to you through the Divine.

You Really are Supposed to Play with It

One of the benefits of being a Soul Language Practitioner is that I am able to connect in with the original energy of each Soul Language. Recently, in meditation, I connected with the energy of Capitalist.

I carry this language as my Tone, but in this meditation, I connected with the original line of Capitalist and asked this energy to show me the truth of money. Capitalist showed me many ribbons of light swirling and intertwining with each other — not mixing together, but dancing and swirling in a constant motion.

Money was intended to be a way to play with other Souls here on the planet. We all come with our own resources, our own “capital” that plays a role here on the planet. Money is simply a common denominator, a simple way to easily trade resources as we play with other Souls.

But, somewhere along the line we got caught up more in the having of money instead of the having of the results of the money, instead of the shear joy of interacting with others and playing as we trade resources.

Money is a very light energy. Very playful. Very interactive.

When we focus on “having to have” or worrying “how is it coming” or “I have to have x numbers of dollars,” then we weigh money down. Money becomes very heavy and dense.

Money becomes hard.

How does money feel to you? Light and playful? Hard?

Close your eyes and connect with the part of you that remembers your Divinity. From this connection, ask, “What do I get to let go of that allows me to remember the playfulness and lightness of money?”
