Do You Get the Money, or Do I?

In our culture, money is set up as either / or:

Either I believe in complete selfishness and act as though all money should be mine, or I am completely selfless and give it all away.

Either I get the money… or you do.

Soul-based Abundance allows us to find the middle ground: I can have an exquisite life experience and so can you.

I can be open to receive my good AND still be mindful of who I want to be to allow good to flow through me to others.

The word that springs to mind is: Interconnected.

But even interconnection depends on me using my resources to make myself as strong as I can. Depleted energy can’t give.

The amazing aspect of money to remember is that it is simply another form of the Divine. The Divine is limitless, right? As we “use” the knowing that money is of the Divine to fuel our receiving, we can rest in the knowing there is an unlimited amount left for everyone else.

I am not a church-goer, but the image this brings up for me is a Sunday morning. Think of the tens of thousands of people in church across the United States, connecting to and drawing on the Divine in those hours of the morning.

Does that mean there is less Divine for me to access when I am at the shores of my favorite lake in those exact same hours? I can tell you from personal experience that is not the case.

We are all drawing from the same interconnected web that is the Divine in those moments. And there is an unlimited amount left in the Divine’s tank.

Money can be exactly the same.

For you and for me.

A Story of Inner Abundance in Action

One of the concepts I teach is about “Being the Energy of the Solution.”

In short, Universal Law says for everything that has been created, it’s equal and opposite has been created too. For every problem, there is a solution. When you ask to be the energy of the solution, you are setting yourself up to receive answers.

But what if solutions came before you even knew there were problems?

Being connected with your Inner Abundance means being connected with your divine essence. Connected with your piece of the Divine. Knowing without question who you really are and tapping into all the resources of the Divine. Engaging with this part of you allows life to flow with the assistance of the Divine, instead of pushing and struggling to MAKE things happen with only your effort.

When you flow with the Divine, you are open to receive solutions before problems.

Here’s a great example:

My youngest daughter, Sarah, is a High School Senior and we’ve been neck deep in the college hunt for over a year now.

Early in January, we made a decision to take a last minute visit to Case Western Reserve University where she has already been accepted with a lovely scholarship.

I quickly signed us up for a general admissions visit and campus tour. Sarah is interested in surgical nursing, but they didn’t have a tour set up for the day we were going. So, I reached out directly, and they graciously set up a private tour a couple hours after the general visit.

Perfect. Everything was in place, including our plane tickets.

The day before we leave, I’m printing out parking passes and they have the wrong date for the nursing tour. It’s set up for Thursday when it was supposed to be Friday. I go through my e-mail and discover it’s MY error. I told them we would be there Friday, January 11th. But Friday is the 12th. So they went with the 11th.

Panic set in. That was the whole reason we were going and if we couldn’t have a tour, it would be a waste. Deep breaths. Asking to be the energy of the solution.

Once centered, I called and explained the situation. I asked for a Friday tour, but no one was available. We negotiated a bit and they set us up for late Thursday, right after our flight was due to come in. Not ideal, but a solution. I thought that was magical and that THIS was a demonstration from the Universe. But there was so much more to come!

Our fight into Cleveland was easy, we easily made our tour time. It was an AMAZING experience.

Friday comes and we head to the general admissions visit and campus tour. It is 57 and raining. Over the next two hours, it was forecasted to drop to 30 and ice. We get to the admissions house and were told they will do an abbreviated presentation, but no tour because they are closing the University.

If we had the tour scheduled as I has originally set up, we never would have had it.

The Universe orchestrated a solution to a problem that I didn’t know existed — how could I know that on the day we visited, the University would close? Something that happens more rarely than a Blue Moon?

I just love demonstrations from the Universe.

I will not pretend I have all of this completely figured out.

But what I do know for sure is the more deeply I connect with my own Inner Abundance, the more I allow the Divine to thread through me in a way that allows co-creation, the more life unfolds with joy and richness of all kinds.

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.

Resistance much?

First, a quick reminder. I would love to hear from you regarding prosperity. If you would like your voice to be heard (and help me out), please answer this anonymous, very short survey by clicking here. Or paste the following URL into your browser: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GVP2MZF. Thank you in advance!

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?

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.

Reaching the Tipping Point (or: Universal Laws: Fact or Hooey?)

Tipping PointWhen I first started working with clients, I just did individual sessions, as people wanted them. One at a time. My reasoning was that by allowing them to schedule one-off sessions, they only were paying for what they needed.

Now I very rarely offer anything less than a 3-month package of work.

Why? During my first few years in practice, I began noticing a pattern. People were coming to me because there was a part of them that wanted to believe in the magic of the Universe. They wanted to believe that there was SO much more than the reality around them. To be honest, a part of them remembered there was a different way of approaching life and they wanted to live in a new way.

We’d work together for a few sessions and they would start to feel really good. They’d start to notice things in their life changing. Kind of like magic.

Then reality would hit. Some new piece of contrast would happen: like an unexpected bill. Or a client quitting. Or a relationship failing.

The magic disappeared in an instant and they felt like they were left holding the magician’s hat, except there was no rabbit, only a hinged opening at the bottom. Illusion over. Life was exactly the same.

And they never came back to work with me.

For a while, I questioned my abilities as a healer and practitioner. Then I began to understand the bigger pattern.

We have so much magic in the world that we live in. However, it isn’t the kind of magic you get wishing on a star. Or hoping for a fairy godmother; or a knight in shining armor riding in on his white horse. But these are the only frames of reference we often have.

Magic is all about focus, intention, and belief. And laws.

As you work with your focus and intention, you’ll get immediate results, which will fuel your fire. Then some new piece of contrast will enter your life. However, that doesn’t mean the magic was fake.

All it means is this is a new opportunity to go deeper in your new way of living. Your new way of interacting with the Universe. You get new clarity about your old vibration and where you get to tweak it, so you can be more consistently in your new vibration.

A new piece of contrast doesn’t mean you were bad or wrong. Doesn’t mean Universal Law is hooey.

Each time you choose to take what you know about magic to a deeper level, the more your vibration will change. The more life will change and you’ll reach a tipping point into a new reality of magic in your daily life.

Once I understood this pattern, this cycle of learning, I began to see I was taking people right up to the edge of the tipping point, but not holding space through it and beyond. Now I structure my sacred offerings to support through the tipping point.

Perhaps even more importantly, once I understood this pattern, I began to see where I was walking up to the edge of the tipping point and backing away in my own life.

When have you gone up to the edge
of the tipping point in your own life
and backed away before life could get magical?

What is Your Money Identity?

What’s your identity in relationship to money?

Take a moment to close your eyes. Ground yourself. Open to your connection with the Divine.

Now, finish this question:

When it comes to prosperity, I’m the kind of person who…

What comes up for you?

… receives money easily and effortlessly

… has to struggle for whatever comes my way?

Your answer reflects the identity you’ve created for yourself — and the Universe is happy to deliver whatever you’ve decided.

The good news is you hold the power to shift this identity whenever you’re ready.

Be Prosperity

Are you being prosperity?

I’ve been noticing something about what happens before money begins to flow in an abundant, sustainable way for conscious people.

Something in our being-ness truly shifts.

The reality is, as humans, we can make money any way we want. Money is neutral and simply flows or doesn’t flow based on what we’re asking for and allowing. If you think the way to receive money is to push hard, be deceptive, and do anything for the sale, money says, “Sure. I can do that.”

As someone committed to being a conscious, light filled person and business owner, that’s a completely unacceptable way to be in the world.

So, we look to the energetic underpinnings of money, we look to the spirituality of money and we try technique after technique to draw money into our lives that is in synch with our values and ideas about the world.

And then it doesn’t “work.” And it’s heartbreaking.

For those of us who want to create money consciously in alignment with our values, we need to make an internal shift. That shift is from doing techniques to create money to being prosperity and allowing the flow. To remember literally that we, as a Divine spark, are of the Divine. Prosperity is of the Divine.

Notice the difference between these two mindsets:

I don’t have enough money. There’s something wrong. I need to do more. Meditate more. Believe better. I need miracles.

I am a prosperous being. Any money “issue” is simply evidence of a small misalignment and I’m open to the method that will bring me back into alignment with the knowing that prosperity is my divine right. It’s all on its way.

The first creates more lack. The second opens you to receiving. When you make this shift, all parts of your being come into alignment with having prosperity.

Playing God in Your Business?

I love receiving clear guidance from the Divine. Even after all the time I have spent connecting with the Divine, the clarity with which the Divine will communicate with me still makes my head spin.

What I find interesting is how many different ways the Divine chooses to communicate the exact same message to me: Let Go. Let Me Help You.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t surrender easily. For better or worse, my mind works really well; I’m really good at puzzling things out. So, when the Divine tells me to Let Go… I hear, but I don’t necessarily listen.

This week’s message came from a Soul Language called Bridgewalker (and if you’ve been on this newsletter for a while, you may recognize the name). What this energy showed me was that the Divine’s job is to build the bridges; my job is to walk across them.

In other words, stop trying to build all the bridges.

Stop trying to find the right technique, the right message, the right “fill in the blank action.”

Take more quiet time. Be more intentional. Ask the questions. Recognize it isn’t that you are supposed to ask for “help,” but rather, use the fullness of who you are. Allow that fullness to build the bridges for you.

Don’t just hear.

Listen. Trust. Then act if it’s time to act.

This is where I keep stepping on God’s toes: trying to do it all myself. If I allowed the Divine to build the bridges more often, the flow would be so much different. The bridges are much more likely to lead to places I actually want to be… instead of building bridges quickly not really knowing where they are going to end up taking me.

Where are you stepping on God’s toes? What message does the Divine keep giving you in lots of different ways? How could your business be different if you allowed the fullness of the Divine to express through you?

Building Your Sacred Container So You Build a Business That Works With Your Life

How intentional are you about the sacred container that is your business? Meaning, how intentional are you about the very foundation of your business?

From an energetic perspective, your sacred container is the heartbeat of your business. The container will bring you business experiences: clients, contracts, JV partnerships, money, etc. Because of this, you want to be super intentional about how you create your container, so what comes your way is in alignment with how you want to live your day to day life.

Let me give you an example.

When I first started my business, I was very clear the container of my business must support my value of family first. I also knew my business was based on integrity, truth, and respect. And, my business has brought me experiences that reflect these “walls.”

Over the last six months or so, I’ve begun to notice that while those “walls” of my buisness’ sacred container are still in place and are still important, I’ve evolved into a place where I am ready to be more specific.

I’ve deepened my connection to Source, deepened my absolute knowing there is more than enough for me, as well as the rest of the world, and I am more than enough to deserve to receive that ‘enoughness.’ My trust in the Universe is at such a different place than it was even a year ago.

Just as a flowerbed needs new dirt and regular water, a business’ sacred container requires regular upkeep. What I noticed about my own sacred container was that I had gotten a little “lazy” about my intentions (no judgment, just observation). I hadn’t shifted my daily practices to make sure I was including all of this transformation within my sacred container.

Now that I have this awareness, I’m ready to begin creating my new sacred container and excited to see where this leads.

How specific are you with your intentions for the sacred container of your business?
