Wealthy Monday 05/23/2011
Ever since I started wealthy Monday posts last week, I can’t help but be constantly aware of what I am doing that leaves me feeling wealthy & abundant.
I had one experience last week that stuck with me to this day. I have a feeling the sensation it gave me isn’t leaving anytime soon & for that, I am grateful.
I had a few errands to run. The weather was gorgeous. I paid 4 bills - in full, got my oil changed (it was long over due), filled up my tank of gas for near $50 (& I didn’t sweat it).
I’m on my way home from having accomplished all these things, with the windows down, the radio up & smile on my face. I can’t remember the last time I felt that completely wealthy.
I am still living in gratitude for having the mula to take care of all those things & pass on the circle of abundance to another family in need of putting food on their table.
Side Note: sometimes I think we forget that behind the front of big corporations are millions of people that have jobs that allow them to put food on their table. Without that job- where would they be? Even with something as simple as paying $40 to get my oil changed - I am contributing to someones paycheck. For that, I can be grateful.
What makes you feel totally wealthy & abundant?
PS. I'm featured on living the dream life today. Check it out!
Bunny Photo Friday with Basil the Bunny 05/20/2011
Lately my days have been filled with planning for our wedding that's coming up on June 11th.
I've always believed that in every obstacle there is a lesson to be learned - otherwise it wouldn't be standing in our way in the first place.
There have been a couple of things that have really been present for me over the past couple of weeks.
One being that I am so blown away & grateful for all the support our friends & family have shown us.
They have stepped up to the plate in ways I never dreamed of - it truly makes this time in my life even more special. (Thank you!)
The other is that it has shown me how to really listen for my inner voice when it shows up.
I'm not a big believer in should's & shouldn'ts.
So when others share their thoughts with me of how I should be doing things my first instinct is to say 'thank you for sharing' & move on with my day.
I appreciate having the knowing I do at this time in my life.
I believe we all must live our lives to our own standards & no one else's.
How miserable it must be to always be trying to make everyone else happy. (& impossible!)
I believe this also stands true for anyone who is in a relationship. Don't look at what everyone else is doing & how it works for them. Find what works best for YOU and YOUR other person - that is the key.
At the end of all of this, I will look back & know that I did the very best that I could, & it turned out amazing because it was all in alignment with what The Mister & I wanted - no one else.
What happened on page 111 of The Big Leap 05/18/2011
Last night I was digging into page 111 of The Big Leap & something big struck home with me.
Up until this point nothing in the book deeply resonated with me.
Although everything I read was relevant - I just felt like I had worked through a lot of the references.
& then I read page 111. It starts off like this...
" Make a commitment to keep an attitude of wonder and play while learning about your Upper Limit behaviors. Say this sentence in your mind as often as you like. It expresses the attitude I’d like you to embody.
I commit to discovering my Upper Limit behaviors, and to having a good time while I learn about them.
Here are some of the most common Upper Limit behaviors (I won’t list them all, but the two that jumped off the page & strangled me were):
I totally have a self-sabotaging Upper Limit Problem.
& then the fear kicked in.
I just had a client hire me that morning for web design, paying me a significant amount of money.
What if I screw it up?
What if my Upper Limit Problem kicks in & she wants to fire me?
What if I’m not as good as I think I am?
Blah, blah, blah.
I even had bad dreams last night that circled around these fears of not being good enough to be wealthy.
To be completely honest, I haven’t entirely discarded these fears.
But I am present to them.
I am waving hello to them when they show up.
I am choosing to put my energy into this : “I commit to discovering my Upper Limit behaviors, and to having a good time while I learn about them."
Instead of that: “I’m not good enough.”
What Upper Limit Problems kick in for you when you start making real progress?
On Sunday we had a ROOTED conference call where all the members of this round of ROOTED gathered to talk about expectation & attachment.
I had the lovely Megan Collier as a guest on the call to share her experience of the topic & how it played a role in her life - the good & the bad.
By the end of the conversation I realized I had my own bout of expectation & attachment to what my coaching looked like.
At the time, I had a lot of resistance even calling myself a coach.
I had created Life Illumination Courses where I saw progress in other people, but the set-up I had wasn't fun for me & I couldn't figure out why.
After the call I decided to surrender my coaching practice & see the situation with fresh new eyes.
I woke up yesterday morning with Soul Sessions on my brain & in my heart & now it's available for you.
With Soul Sessions - I can keep conversations short, sweet & to the point. I use my intuition to help you be at ease & discover things about your current life & way of being.
They are affordable for you & fun for me! Mostly because I'm not coaching you, or telling you what to do. I am sharing my own experience with you. I am reflecting your own inner light back at you with clear energy.
No, I'm not psychic. At least not all the time. But I do have a strong sense of intuition & things pop into my mind in colors, pictures, ideas, etc. That is what I will be sharing with you.
I look forward to meeting you in the Soul Sessions.
PS. I Love You.
Wealthy Monday 05/16/2011
Yesterday I spent a lot of time feeling good about having a spic-n-span home (I would hope so, I spent 3 hours cleaning). But the emotions I experienced actually went much deeper than that. It did more than just make me feel good.
My clean home left me feeling totally & completely WEALTHY.
Lately I've noticed my thoughts on money haven't exactly been in a good place. I believe this conversation is part of my life long journey of evolution. I go through cycles of being great at making money, & then all of a sudden my account is dry. I'm still learning & always will be!
I decided to start spending Monday morning writing about what makes me feel wealthy over-all. Not just with the green paper, but with events, people, actions, things, etc.
What leaves me feeling totally and completely wealthy today, is having a cabinet, pantry & fridge filled to the brim with groceries. If I am hungry, I walk in there and whip something up. I don't have to think about what I don't have & possibly make a trip to the store. Having a full pantry leaves me feeling abundant & wealthy.
How about you? What leaves you feeling over-flowing with abundance & wealth?
Everything is always changing.
Relationships aren’t an exception to that fact. From my personal experience their seems to be an ebb & flow about it all, as their is with everything else we experience.
It’s much easier to learn to ride this wave than it is to make it wrong & resist what is so.
Here are a few tips for making this most of this cycle:
This week has been filled with one-on-one coaching calls from ROOTED participants. I love these calls because they are generally short, sweet & to the point.
It seems that a lot progress gets made in a short amount of time & one of my most favorite parts is that my intuition always shows up strong & precise (for the most part).
During one call in particular yesterday, a lovely lady shared that she had little to no real, like-minded support system in her physical world.
Her online community was filled to the brim with people who touch, move and inspire - but in her physical world - not so much.
This wasn’t the first time a client had approached me with this issue & though I approached client number one differently than my ROOTED player - the success of both outcomes were substantial & beyond satisfying.
So I thought I would share an exercise with you on how to attract your tribe in the physical world.
Some of the people that show up you might of know for years, but suddenly they'll want to take a yoga class with you instead of just waving hello.
In other cases, you might bump into a stranger on the street & the jewelry you are wearing sparks an interesting conversation.
Do no discredit anyone or anything. Release attachment to what these people look like. Trust this process & promise your tribe will begin to show up in as little as a week.
This will send you a fresh copy of my blog every time I write a new post and update you on special offers.
