What are You Willing to Leave Behind (a Tough Love, Love Note)?

Chances are something big led you to learn about Law of Attraction, mindset shifting, and coming into alignment with what you want. Most of us aren’t raised with an understanding of energy and Source/God/Goddess being the source of our limitless prosperity (usually we are taught that life is hard and you have to struggle to get what you want).

Tapping into Universal energy is heady. Anytime you can catch a glimpse of how limitless you and your life are, it’s magical and your heart soars.

So why is your day-to-day life limited? Why hasn’t your business completely shifted in the ways that you want?

This is a question I’ve been hearing a lot — from my clients and from my own heart. When I asked my soul team about this, I heard:

What are you willing to leave behind?

What I’m sensing is that as a group of heart and soul based business owners, we are intensely drawn to working with energy and intention to create our lives. And yet, we’re human. It’s hard to release the old thinking that created the conditions that are around us because, quite frankly, it’s scary to release those old ways of thinking and being.

The old ways of thinking can be pretty shifty. They hide out in the corners of your mind letting you do your visioning, your intention setting, your vision boards, your prayers; you can literally feel your growth. And then the old thinking begins whispering:

“Is this really going to work?”
“Once you get that business going, you’re going to lose all your time.”
“Do you really have what it takes?”
“Will the money really be there?”
“Don’t you need to pay your dues first?”
“When’s the other shoe going to drop?”
“They are going to think I’m a fraud”
“Money will change me into an egotistical know-it-all.”
“Success is dangerous.”

We try to maneuver away from those voices, but as much as we don’t want them, a part of us doesn’t feel safe letting them go. We try to create success without changing them. And life doesn’t change.

So, I ask you: What are you willing to leave behind?

I had a conversation with a client last week about what she wants to create in her life. As she was speaking to me about what she wanted, she immediately went into the story of why she was terrified that she couldn’t have it. As she spoke, the image I received was a picture of her holding onto the edge of a rocky ledge by the barest ends of her fingers and toes. Her arms and legs were shaking. Behind her was a brilliantly lit net. When I shared the image, she told me, “Yes, I can feel it. But I’m terrified to let go.”

How do I let go of the old?

That’s the $64,000 question, isn’t it?

To let go requires deep trust in the Universe/God.
To let go requires deep belief in ourselves as a Divine Spark.
To let go requires deep trust that the Universe truly is conspiring on our behalf.
To let go requires deep trust in our inherent safety.

You know you are ready to embody these Truths. Your Soul is urging you.

So, I ask one more time: What are you willing to leave behind? And, what are you willing to more fully step into today?
