What do you say to make money go away?

What is your money story?

As the holiday season looms, yes can you believe the Christmas decorations are going to start showing up and those dreaded entities called Christmas carols will take over your super mind!!

If you have been beginning to amp up the pressures around making, having, spending money, please use the tools especially “who does it belong to?” and know you will always have enough.

how many seeds have you planted and are refusing to receive the abundance you created?

how many seeds have you planted and are refusing to receive the abundance you created?

Sometimes we don’t make the money we say we want for the most insidious, disempowering reasons.  Most recently I’ve come across …

… a single mompreneur who was concerned that, if she were successful, she might have to give up or even pay child support.

… a coach who didn’t want to grow her business because she might have to give up her disability payments.

… a very busy part-time healer who didn’t want to give up her day job so that she could grow her business, because of the health insurance her job offered her.

… a widowed entrepreneur who didn’t want to increase her income because she would have to give up her husband’s social security benefits.

All of these people were more or less consciously limiting their income … because their lack came with a perceived “benefit.”

Sometimes the “benefits” of financial struggle are less obvious.

Sometimes our financial situation gets us attention.  Our parents worry about us.  Our friends try to help us out.

how many challenges can you turn in to revenue stream if you just knew what questions to ask

Sometimes our financial situation provides entertainment for our minds.  Without money to worry about, what would we think about all day?

Sometimes our financial situation provides us with opportunity to bond with others.  After all, everyone complains about money, right?  If we had no money concerns, what would we talk about with our friends, our family members?

Sometimes our financial situation provides us with an adrenaline rush.  We let our bank accounts dwindle, then go into extreme fear and pull out all the stops to create income.  We feel the triumph of victory.  And then we rinse and repeat.  What a rush!

Financial struggle can also get us special treatment.  I have people email me on a weekly basis because they feel their financial situation entitles them to discounts on my products and services.

So ask yourself … what do you love about lack and having trauma and drama with money ?

what financial future are you creating?

More importantly, who would you have to be without it?

Leave your comment, share your thoughts!

Until next time have a great, abundant, happy life and body

Ease and gratitude

What would let go, live now and lighten up look like for you?

What would let go, live now and lighten up look like for you?

My new year’s DEMAND for 2013 was to “not take myself so seriously.” Funny thing is I can be cute not bright at times and the Universe is still sending me the 2x4s sporadically, to do a lot more than gently nudge me out of my own way and back to lightening up and laughing at my own stupidity to take everything including myself SO seriously! Little did I know this would mean I would be faced with a lot of heavy obstacles, where the only way to get through them was to lighten up and laugh at myself. Life is so much more fun this way! Would you be willing to be the joke and laugh at yourself?

Happiness is just a choice and as easier as that sounds we forget that along the way.

Afterall it is far easier to go to the insanity of this reality where trauma, drama and disease is the choice programme running the lives of 99% of people on the planet. It is not your fault, just the bad programming of this reality!

There are so many things that I want to do, yet there never seems to be enough hours in the day. Never. I know that I am not the only one who thinks this way. In today’s day and age, many of us live our lives glued to our heavy agendas that take the joy out of live life, let go, be present, lightening up.

live life, let go

let go, live now and lighten up

Scheduling appointments for this. Booking times for that. Always filling up those free moments that lie in between with something we just have to do and get done.

With never ending to-dos lists, and calendars that are already filled until next December, it is no wonder that we tend to feel overwhelmed, bombarded, and constantly looking at the clock as a reminder that we are running out of time.

We look at the clock no longer as our friend, but rather an enemy.  minute.by.minute.it.ticks.counting.down.that.the.day.is.coming.to.an.end. BAMMMMMM!!! Before you know it, its 11 pm and you find yourself asking where the day went and then going in to the litany of judgement about how little you achieved? Notice how heavy the energy gets when you do that? Day-in and day-out this is how many people’s lives are. You are not alone. At what age did you give up your fun in knowing anything is possible and the wonder and anticipation of “oh, what glorious adventure will I have today?” Who told you to “grow up and take everything so seriously?”

All of the obligations. All of the things that you are commented to. Bonded to. Must do. Because you have written it into that agenda of yours. That agenda that you have with you at all times, is what is in fact the controller of your life. Is that a kindness to you?

If you are an over creator like myself, then you will know the challenges of getting to everything you want to create and generate.

Here are 3 tips to make it easier to let go, live now and lighten up:
1.Instead of making yourself wrong, take all those ideas out of your head and write them down.

2.Use something like the “pomodoro technique”and allocate 20 minute chunks for the things that are on your important list first. For me that could look like writing my book, writing this blog, working out, painting, creating classes, playing with my daughter, working, spending time with friends and family and me-time.

3. Stay present! If you had 10 seconds to live the rest of your life, what would you choose? Go! Ok that 10 seconds has gone, what do you choose? By staying present you will eliminate all of those ridiculous stories that are occurring within your mind and can focus with ease on what you are currently creating. For now in this 10 seconds I am writing this entry. I am focusing on you and getting this entry out of my head and out to you.

Oh, and remember to start present and in choice, follow the energy in that 10 seconds by using the heavy/light tool !

So the next time you go in to the panic of time, going back and forth, procrastinating, distracting yourself STOP and ask a question!

Ask your life, your body, your business what it requires of you in this moment and write it down! Will it be fun, will it expand your agenda, will it make you money?
Don’t you want to let go, live now and choose to have an out of control life?? A life where nobody including time (which is a construct)gets to control you?? What if you choose to be present and lighten up? I promise you things will begin to change.

I’m also much less attached to what people think about me, and that is SO liberating. The more you open the heart space and stay in your truth – truly find your own voice in the world and be seen, the more judgement you receive and the more you will attract more abundance, more joy, more money – and yes more critics, more envy and sometimes mean-ness too. True allowance includes the good, bad and ugly!

what does letting go and lightening up mean to you?

what if letting go and staying present is the key to lightening up and being happiness in a body?

It’s just what happens, you can’t please everyone all the time so what if you just acknowledge everything that comes AT you as an interesting point of view and choose what makes your heart sing? When yo choose that honouring, kind allowance to be YOU, to be your authentic self, then the magic of attracting the people ( and things) who resonate with you will join you on this adventure called living. That is the space that opens and lightens to attract more of the nurturing, generative people and experiences in to your life and the weight of what does not match that falls away with a sigh in a heart beat!

AND, one fabulous thing to be aware of is, the more you share yourself from vulnerability, caring OF you and your true voice, the more unique your message becomes  — and the more you stand out, as the gift you are to the world just BEing you.

PS – what do you know that you are pretending not to know that of you knew it, you could change it?
I would love to hear your comments and tools you use to lighten up and live in your True Nature with ease, joy and glory!

In my next post I will share some easy, fun ways to stay forever present!

Ease and gratitude

3 Ways to celebrate beautiful YOU?

3 Ways to celebrate beautiful you.

What can you be grateful for today?

What can you be grateful for today?

How do you celebrate beautiful you? How much more joy could you receive from a kindness and honoring space of you and your body?

In this hustle and bustle that we call life, too often we strive endlessly going nowhere fast! As we approach completion of one target, we simply jump into the next one, with no pause to celebrate what you have accomplished. Life is not in the striving but in the arriving. Celebrate each milestone reached and embrace each step that got you there. Let go of the do-do, the constant running without reason, except for keeping up. What if you receive the magic in that place of arrival.

celebrate dream and do

I have a colleague who used to brag about never taking a vacation, working 80 hour weeks, and always being the top in sales. Yet this friend also often complained of exhaustion, not having time for fun (more like not making time for fun), and falling out of touch with family and friends. She didn’t realize that she had designed her life as a striver without the benefit of celebrating her many arrivals and accomplishments. Work to live, instead of living to work.

Are you just getting by or are you loving you and your life?

When you live in striving, you live in the past or go into the future and cannot be present to create your future. What if these 3 ways to celebrate beautiful you can begin to give you the space to access your true nature? Each moment is a new arrival that you’ve never experienced before. Revel in all the infinite possibilities. For every target you aim for to get you closer to physically actualising, you are at the close of the one before. You cannot be where you are without the moments that have gone before you in precisely the order they have unfolded.

Here are 3 ways to celebrate beautiful you:

Are you ready to get out of the daily distractions and in to inspired ACTION?

1. With each target you create, be sure to also craft a celebration of that achievement and take a moment of gratitude. Take the time to enjoy what you have created.

2. Plan a party without having to justify or defend anything – because YOU can celebrate where you are in your life and where your friends and family are in their lives.

3. Enjoy the moments in your life each day, they are finite and you never know how many you have.

After all they are finite in this reality and you never know how many you have. #accessurtrunature

7 Steps to take you out of overwhelm and in to more ease

By | access consciousness, access your true nature, communication, Conscious living, How to work smart not hard, parenting easy, Prosperity abundance | No Comments
Who would you be without the overwhelm and constant struggle that runs your day to day life?
Overwhelm hits us when we have a lot going on and/or are in the midst of change.  The problem with feeling overwhelmed is that the mind spins and this can have a paralyzing and severely demoralizing effect. It feels really bad to spend time in this emotional place. You might even feel trapped.  I have been thinking about this concept a lot since I recently had two daughters leave home and go out on their own and at the same time two grown children move back in the house unexpectedly. I find myself feeling a mix of emotions. This gave me the opportunity to practice the concepts that I use with my clients.
out of overwhelm and into possibilities
Here are 7 ways you can handle overwhelm and really do what you want to be doing on a daily basis. And I have found myself using these same concepts to get through my recent transitions.
1. Let go. Stop trying to control the world.  We begin a project with an idea of what will happen, and when we get surprised; there is that inclination to feel frustrated. “Hey, this isn’t fair. This isn’t what I planned.” Sound familiar? Let go of needing to control the situation. Try it- feel the release as you let go.
2. Accept what is.  Whatever is going on- accept it rather than try to fight it. When you accept what is- then you are free to act. You have the energy to take action. You haven’t used up all of your energy trying to fight and force things into place.
3. Stop beating yourself up. Release blame. It does not help you to go over and over what you think you should have done or said. Stop blaming other people too.  You don’t need to make yourself or other people “wrong” in order to deal with your life in the moment.
4. Do what works. Yes, this is the key. If you know that a long walk calms you down, do that. If you know that balancing your check book makes you feel more in control- do that. If you know that writing in your journal gives you clarity,  do that.
5. Do what you want to do and delegate the rest. If you think you “should” be doing something but it feels forced or you don’t like it- don’t do it. For example, in my own situation regarding moving people in and moving people out- I realized that adults are empowered to plan their own moves. My daughters’ planned and implemented everything (I was on hand to help- but I released my title- as Master of the Universe).  On the other hand, if taking an action feels good and empowering, by all means, take action. Use this concept when dealing with long to-do lists.
6. Release worry and guilt. Worry and guilt are burdensome emotions. Love yourself and others without worry and guilt attached. A simple exercise is to place your hand over your heart and concentrate on the feeling of love. Hold this position for a few minutes.
7. Take care of your health. Eat well, sleep well, move your body, take your vitamins, manage your stress, and pay attention to your needs.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed and are trying to decide what to do- ask yourself- “What is most important? What is my legacy?  Bottom line- do what works for you and what you feel good about doing. Trust your inner guidance. Busy is good and healthy- overwhelm is not.
