It’s all about love, baby!

January 26th, 2011

Love, amore, honey bunch, cutie pie…love is in the air! So, are you showing your money some loving? Hmmm.

If you are have a bitter relationship with your money or you are just not feeling the money LOVE, it’s time to change your relationship with money so you can welcome more of it into your life. I want to offer you some creative tools and strategies to help money fall head over heels in love with you, so it keeps flowing gracefully into your life.

So let’s get a little creative here with a visualization exercise.

Imagine money coming to you joyously and easily. Right, you open the mail and there is an unexpected check, you check your messages and a client you haven’t spoken with in a while wants to come in this week, your about to do some laundry and find some unexpected money in your pocket.. it just keeps showing up! Yippeee! Feel the expansive energy around this, it feels easy and effortless- and oh so joyous!

Now imagine you open the mail, there is an unexpected bill, and you think, “not again”. You get into your car and the engine light comes on, and you feel a tightness in your chest. A client calls and cancels for later that week. You check your bank balance, and it’s below your comfort zone. You start to feel constricted, it feels tight, and restricted and fearful.

So let me ask you a question, out of these two scenarios, where to you focus most of your time and energy?

Are you spending more time in money chaos land, where you are focusing on all the lack and fear of not having enough?

Are you living mostly in the land of money ease and grace, where you see around you all of the ways money flows into your life?

Here’s the gift– money is exactly like a child. Think about your child, or a child you know. When you pay attention and lavish them with love and nurturance, (for the most part) they are pretty content with the connection and feeling paid attention to.

Now think about what happens when your child comes up to you and you’ve got you hands full with dinner, your on the phone, and they can’t get your attention? Off they go into another room, frustrated. A few minutes later you hear your other child scream because, “she hit me”, or “he took my toy”. Whhhaaaahh! Total melt-down!

Why, because you weren’t paying attention.

Money, too likes attention, and either you are going to pay it attention with love and nurturance, or you are going to pay it attention with frustration and struggle.

So how do you show your money some LOVIN’ to keep it well behaved?

If you are spending more time balancing your checkbook and wondering where your money has gone, then it’s time to shift to some positive supportive money habits.

Here’s one you can start today. Track every bit of money that comes to you. Every rebate check, every dime you find in a pocket, every penny that flows to you and your family (this means for both you and your spouse too). Everything, Everyday.

Don’t separate his and hers, or negate a small amount of money, or say “I didn’t earn it”. Count it all- every day!

You’ll start to notice how much money flows to you. Pretty doggone remarkable. Then as you track it on a monthly basis you’ll see how much comes into your household over time (and where there are lulls, so you are not a victim when there are slower times).

You’ll also start to notice the average amount of money that comes to you over several months, so you can increase that amount. In fact, there is a very specific formula to increasing the amount of money that flows to you. I share with you exactly what that is, and you can access it for F-R-E-E as part of your IATPP membership benefits.

Why Fear is stopping your success

January 28th, 2010

As much as we are enlightened by the years of training we have done as therapists, there are still hidden beliefs and fears that pop up when we are called to step out of our comfort zone and move into something bigger.

It shows up in so many ways, from passing up on an opportuntiy that someone presents, making excuses, and down playing your abilities (among other things). At the core are many beliefs that keep you from moving forward. This is true for you, because if you did not have these beliefs you would have exactly what it is you desire in your life and in your business. There are so many resources out there that you could read, learn, and access on the internet, and even if you didn’t know exactly what to do first in you business, you could get that inforamtion and implement it and that would be it. You would have the number of clients you desire, you’d have the money you desire, and you’d have the ease you desire.

Instead your beliefs have dominated your decisions. You do not effortlessly say yes to what is presented and create what you desire. Fear keeps you in a holding patterning and your beliefs pop up to affirm why you can’t do those things you are so longing for.

What can you do?

First off become aware of your beliefs. What is it that you believe in that keeps you stuck? Read below to see which ones resonate with you (without judgement):

I don’t have what it takes

I don’t know enough

Who am I

I’m not an expert

It will be too much work

No one will pay

I’m not enough

I don’t really need to help more people

I’ ll get overwhelmed

I’m not a good speaker

I’m too disorganized and unfocused

I should change for this

I’m not good enough

Others will be upset

I’ll have to discount

Who am I to do this

I wont be able to do it

People don’t want what I provide

The economy is bad

I’m not as good as they are

This will not work for my business

I don’t have time

I don’t have money

I don’t have support

I don’t like to sell

I’ll be embarrassed

I’ll be vulnerable

They’ll see I’m a fake

They’ll laugh

I’ll have to work to hard

Others will get upset

I don’t want others to uncomfortable

My partner/spouse may leave

Others may reject me

Awareness if the first step. Releasing these beliefs is the next step. There are many ways to heal and let go of old beliefs. I’ll be offering very specific tools and strategies in the upcoming tele-class How to Change What You Are Worth, and Get It!
