The Movement Toward Greater Authenticity & Purpose in Business

Is what once worked no longer working? Do you find it hard to do simple business activities you used to do easily before? Does the way you do business no longer feel right, as though something is off?

There is a major movement happening in the world right now. This movement is one that is toward purpose and authenticity.

At a deep level we are being called to let go of things that are no longer congruent. Ways of being, ways of doing things, ways of operating in business that don’t match your truest self are being called to be brought into alignment or dropped.

This isn’t an enjoyable process if you don’t realize what is really happening. It can look like the old ways of marketing or selling no longer creating the results they used to, sales may be dropping. It can create a lot of stress.

If this is happening for you then you’re not alone. It’s happening for a lot of people right now, at all levels of business.

We are being called to a greater expression of who we are and of our purpose.

Business models or systems that don’t allow the full expression of who we are will stop working or it will take an exhausting amount of effort to keep them going.

Systems that restrict your essence, your truth, your fullest expression of who we are must be updated and revised to be brought into alignment with our truth.

Right now more than ever is the time to delve into discovery. We are in a time of discovery, of exploration of what is true and congruent and what is not, of seeing the truth clearly.

It’s not a time of spontaneous major changes, there’s no need to take unnecessary risks. This cycle takes time to delve into. Give some space in your day to reflect.  Open to new possibilities even if you’re not yet sure what form they’ll take.

Begin now, open your mind for a moment and reflect on or write out: What still works well for me in my business? What feels good? What doesn’t feel good? What feels way off? What no longer feels tolerable? What part of me still longs to be expressed or given a place in my business?  What do I feel like I’m missing in my business?

Please share what resonates from this article and what you’ve noticed hasn’t been working as it used to, or what you feel called to incorporate more of to be more congruent in your business.  You’re not alone on this journey, many are in it. Humanity is in a cycle of completion and ending old patterns and ways of being that no longer serve. Benefits come when the truth is faced and we open our minds to what is congruent for us.

Is Doing What “Works” No Longer Working?

Young woman looking out the window

One of my gifts is hyper-awareness of the alignment with truth.  If someone is saying or doing something that doesn’t match the core of their being, I pick up on it quickly. It doesn’t matter if I just met the person, I can feel their congruence, this is my gift.

I see it in the business world all of the time. People doing what “works,” yet what works isn’t fully a match to who they truly are. I can feel the level of incongruence. Often they feel it too, they’re just doing what works, they’re told it’s the “right” way to do it to make money so they follow along.

It’s not coming from a bad place. Often the person just wants to do what they love rather than be stuck in an old career they don’t like. To finally have the peace of mind knowing that they finally made it, they’re succeeding in the work they’re called to do, they’re fulfilling the purpose that’s inside of them.

It all comes from a good place. It’s a step in the right direction, to stepping into greater purpose. Yet doing what “works” that isn’t fully congruent places a major limit on the person’s ability to realize their full potential.

The fullest expression of their purpose can’t happen when authenticity is diluted or squished in the process.

As of the time of writing this, I’ve just spent 7 months face-to-face with the cost of having done this myself. Only this time, what worked before no longer works.  This time, I couldn’t keep doing what didn’t match my insides.

I’ve known forever that I’m a creator of content. I’m a spiritual teacher and there is likely no limit to the new expressions I can bring to the world. It’s my passion to continually explore on my own journey of transformation and to share the transformational tools and principles that come out of this exploration.

There are probably a thousand business models I could use to be fully congruent and natural in my business. But I didn’t find them. Instead, I modeled those who create a program or series of programs once, then gear the entire business toward reaching more and more people to take them through those set programs.

While this is an ideal model for many, over time it kills my passion, my enthusiasm and the spark that drives my entire business. My natural gifts, passion, enthusiasm, sense of curiosity and wonder I have are, over time, completely suppressed using this model.

For 5 years I’ve tried to squish myself into this box that I didn’t fit in. I tried to “get excited” about teaching the same content. I would try to find new twists on the old content so I could somehow draw out some enthusiasm from inside of me. Once in a while, I would create a new program and those were the best times (which by the way also created the best results… on this journey I’ve learned that sales are directly proportionate to passion).  Yet now I can see it’s no longer sustainable.

The ridiculous thing about all of this is, I am a naturally enthusiastic person. I don’t need to work to find enthusiasm, it is my natural state. Which I knew all along, but kept going with what sort of “worked”. Worked to help me create a multi-6-figure business that has helped a lot of people.

Yet what I contemplate is this. If I can create these results and transformation in the world without all of my full self and full passion engaged, what could I create if I had my natural enthusiasm and passion fueling me? And what transformation could I create in the world if I shared all I had inside, not just a small portion of it?

Business models aren’t wrong. The business world isn’t wrong. There is not an absolute “right” or “wrong” way to do business. Yet there is a right or wrong way to do business for you.

Doing what “works” must not only mean doing what creates the results. Doing what “works” must evolve to become doing what allows us to be fully expressed as we create the results.

We don’t need to lose ourselves to succeed.

There’s a deeper reason I did this. I’ve been focusing on healing the deeper reasons for it for about 4 years now. I guess that’s why I’m finally facing this and am no longer able to keep going as I was.  Doing what “works” without doing what works for me, for my soul, for my insides, is no longer tolerable.

I’m turning a corner. I’m turning toward living into and expressing my full potential. As risky as it feels, I’m doing what’s right for me. Which I know deep in my bones is what’s right for the world, for all those who are meant to be touched and transformed by the messages that have been stuck inside of me, unable to get out.

Take a moment to reflect for yourself. What have you been doing that “works” yet isn’t fully in alignment with who you are? What doesn’t quite feel good to you? What might feel better? What feels missing for you?

I’d love to hear what resonates, feel free to comment below.  Feel free to share this article, this is a major challenge so many are facing, they don’t have to face it alone.

Have you put yourself in a box?

BoxI have recently been exploring the ways I’ve put myself into a box in my business. I put myself into a box for very logical, practical reasons.  This box has a lot of wonderful things in it, awesome clients, lots of money, recognition, opportunities. Yet this box has neglected one very important part of who I am at my core, the most important fuel that exists, my passion.

I am doing the work I am passionate about. I left behind my old career to have more passion. Yet the way I’ve set it up has left parts of me longing to be expressed, sitting in the background completely bored.

There’s a risk in changing what is working, yet there’s a huge risk in ignoring this part of me that is so important.  The risk of sabotage in the future gets greater the longer I ignore it.

I’ve already made a commitment to myself, to reshape what I’m doing so my passion is present as fully as possible within the current structure.  Yet I am completely open to a new way of doing things, to a new way of working that serves the most fully and allows me to give all I’ve got.

I was recently at a JV retreat with 120 industry leaders.  I learned I’m not the only one who has been doing what has worked and experiencing a cost. And feeling uncertainty as we open to the new we can’t see yet… Continue reading

#1 Key Trait of Successful Coaches & Healers

KeyThere are a lot of things I had to learn the hard way on my path from Mechanical Engineer to building a successful healing business.  One of them was very surprising, yet it has been one of the secrets to my success and to the success of so many other thriving healers.  This key trait has the potential to accelerate the growth of your business and possibly save you years of unnecessary struggle!

Before I share this #1 key trait with you, I’d like to share with you what a typical coaching & healing business looks like operating without this secret…

Without knowing the secret, most coaches & healers attempt to grow their business by doing what they feel drawn to and taking actions that feel good.  Often they are big into the Law of Attraction (which is important!), so they focus on feeling good and like to stay in that good-feeling state as much as possible.

There’s nothing wrong with focusing on feeling good, but taking good-feeling actions only is detrimental in business and could be the exact thing in the way of your success.

Why?

Because actions that feel good and comfortable are in your COMFORT ZONE.  Your comfort zone is basically where everything you’re comfortable with lives.  Everything that you’re used to is in your comfort zone.

SO… if you’re not used to making awesome money as a healer, then taking comfortable actions will not create awesome money as that’s not currently in your comfort zone.

In essence, comfortable actions lead to same old results.  And you want more don’t you?  Your soul is calling you to create more isn’t it? Yes!

When I was taking comfortable actions my sales were stuck at $800 a month.  Ugh!  Comfort is the old way!

Okay, so on to the #1 key trait.

Recently I was blown away by a once in a lifetime opportunity that landed in my lap.  My work is literally going to be exposed to hundreds of thousands of people, it will be shared with the communities of many multi-million dollar business owners.  This is a dream come true.  Yet it wasn’t just a dream that magically manifested.  It took me demonstrating this #1 key trait multiple times to even allow for it to appear.

Okay so the #1 key trait of all successful coaches & healers is this:

Courage

They choose courage over comfort. What does this mean?  Comfortable actions get you more of the same results.  And if you want to make more money than you are now, if you want to reach more people, you’ll have to leave your comfort zone.  This means, you want to be OKAY with being uncomfortable!

It is the willingness to be uncomfortable, to mess up, to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, to fail and to not be perfect that will create way more success, way faster.  And that takes courage.

The path to your wildly amazing success is around you right now.  If you’re willing to be uncomfortable to reach way more people, way faster, let the Universe know!  Let the Universe know you’re willing to take NEW actions, to be courageous instead of comfortable.  Believe me, you will have opportunities come to you.  And they may terrify you.  Awesome!  Say yes.  Step up.  Your people are waiting!

3 Abundance Lessons from Nature

HydrangeasI’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately, now that it’s nice out.  This time, I’m not walking to get from point A to point B and back or to give my dog Gina exercise.  I’ve been following the natural impulse I had to get outside.  I’ve slowed down, I’ve been present as I walk or sit out in nature.

And today I noticed something powerful as I lay down on a bench to look at the sky.  I saw big trees in the distance.  And I felt a deep connection to nature in that moment.  Along with a powerful realization:

Trees just are.  There’s no trying to be better than, more than or different than who they are.  A tree knows it’s a tree and doesn’t try to pretend it’s a bird.

In nature there is total acceptance of what is.  No pretending, no striving.

Yet in nature there is nothing but endless abundance.  Everywhere you look.

Maybe nature has some secrets we can learn from…

For years I’ve always believed that our purpose is to be who we are.  And that any filter or mask that aims to please or gain approval is something the Universe will eventually guide you to drop.  Because being you is what the world needs.

You have a unique purpose that is only carried out by being exactly who you are. 

And just like a tree, its entire potential of who it could become was held within the seed it started out as.  To resist allowing the full YOU to be expressed in your life and business is like trying to make a tree become a flower.  It just doesn’t work.

The degree to which you compromise who you are to succeed is the degree to which you will feel unsatisfied with the success you create.

If you can even create it.  It’s very tiring trying to be anything but who you are.  The mask of approval is far too heavy.

I’ve seen 3 ways many people lose themselves in their business, stopping the abundance their true nature has for them:

1. They try to solve all of the problems of their clients

I’ve been seeing this over and over lately.  If you have a unique purpose then doing anything for your clients that is not your purpose is simply going to leave you drained and exhausted.

Not to mention, since it’s not your purpose to be all things to all people, you’re forgetting something important:

You really aren’t good at what’s not your purpose

That means two things.  One, the results your clients create from working with you aren’t as powerful as they could be.  Two, it feels like you’re never quite “enough” no matter how much you give which just leads to feeling deflated.

If you stick with what you KNOW you’re here to do, creating the transformation you know you’re here to create in your clients’ lives, you are in accordance with your nature and you create profound results for your clients.

Know the piece you bring to your clients and let them know what it is.  And if they need another piece you can let them know that too.

2. They catch “mentor-itis”

This infection is so sneaky and damaging that my friend Karen Evelyn and I gave it a name.

Mentor-itis.

Mentor-itis is what happens when you try to be something you’re not because a mentor tells you to.  Or maybe you just try to “please” the mentor, to be a good student and willingly become “pleasing” instead of you.

I’ve repeatedly had mentor-itis in my business.  And had to recover from it each time.

The truth is, only YOU know what you bring to the world.  Only YOU know what feels right to you in your business.  Only you can say things the way you’re meant to and your ideal clients need to hear.

Yes, I am a huge fan of having a mentor, one that resonates with you.  They save you time and help you succeed faster.  I believe they are necessary and have had many in the past.

Yet you can’t throw away the YOU in your business because a mentor says you should.  You also don’t want to be more than you are or do work for your clients that’s not you because a mentor says it’s a good idea.  You will lose motivation and it will be WAY more effort.  Success becomes hard because you don’t even really want to do the work.

3. They don’t realize the deeper blocks to allowing their true nature

If just being who you are was easy, I think most people would just do it.  They wouldn’t struggle with it.

I am an intuitive, I am a healer.  I do some different work in the world.  Very different work in the world of business.

Yet where did I start out?  As a Mechanical Engineer.

If being me was so easy, I would have just delved into the world of the intuitive right off the bat.  But I didn’t.  I hid who I really was with all I could.  I hid it so well I didn’t even know who I really was inside.

And even when I started to pursue my intuitive gifts and share them through a business I still was trying to hide,  playing small and not feeling safe enough to share my gifts in a bigger way.

When I finally began to pinpoint the deeper energetic blocks in my way and healing them using the Intuitive Healing Process, I finally felt safe being me in my business.

I could breathe easier, I could be myself more and my work became more enjoyable.  Not only that, I was being me more fully and my sales more than tripled in 5 months.

You are meant to live according to your nature.  Your nature is your gift.  And uncovering your true nature and operating your business according to your true nature is the most prosperous gift you can give yourself and the world.

Many people have no clue what deep energetic blocks are stopping them from feeling safe being who they are and sharing their true selves through their business.

Yet it costs so much in time, energy and lack of motivation.

I’d love to assist you in finding out what energetic blocks are in the way of allowing the full you to be expressed in your business.  To fulfilling your purpose more fully and joyfully.  Making it way easier to make the money you’re meant to.

3 Steps To Activate Rapid Business Growth With Help!

One of the key ways to grow your business quickly is to simply get help.  Many entrepreneurs are resistant to help as they feel they need to figure it all out themselves.

Getting help to grow your business accelerates your path to more money and more impact in the world so if you’re in the “I should figure it out myself” mode right now, maybe it’s time to reconsider this old thinking.

I used to think I was supposed to figure it out myself and if I couldn’t it said something was wrong with me.  I thought I would prove something if I succeeded on my own.  Yet my sales at that time stayed WAY too low.  The day I finally admitted that I didn’t actually know how to make great money in my business was one of the most pivotal days in my business.

It allowed me to finally ask for help and with that came rapid business growth.

I believe with all of my heart that the Universe wants you to succeed. Even MORE than you do.  Because your business isn’t just about you.  It’s about the people that you’re meant to impact.  It’s about the amazing transformation that happens in their lives.

The Universe not only wants you to succeed but it doesn’t want you to do it alone. Alone is no fun.  It’s tiring and it can take endless years or might not even happen.  There is amazing support out there right now.

Your way to rapid business growth is likely around you right now, yet you won’t receive this help if you’re not willing to get help.

There are 2 important keys to investing in yourself and your business growth:

#1 Choose the RIGHT support. I’ll talk more about this in a moment.

#2 USE what you learn!  This one may sound obvious but it’s not enough to learn how to grow your business, you must also implement what you learn!  You’d be amazed at how many people don’t use what they learn and stay stuck!  The key here is to implement what you learn so it’s an investment instead of an expense.

Now I will warn you, there are SO many people out there who can help you and they’re not all right for you.

It’s important to attract the RIGHT support for YOU to take you where you want to go.  I’ve managed to do that over and over and I’d love to share with you the 3 steps I use to do this:

1. Specify the Assistance You’re Ready For

You are the owner of your business.  You are the boss, you are responsible for your business at the end of the day.  From an empowered place, take a look at what you feel you need to learn in order to grow.

At one point I was overwhelmed with so many 1:1 clients and I knew continuing to grow my business as it was would lead to burnout.  So I clearly specified that I wanted to learn how to grow my business in a more leveraged way.

Some people don’t the actual “how to” of attracting clients.  In this case it’s important to specify learning how to attract paying clients.

Or, some just know the next level of sales they’d like to grow to and they have no idea what they need to learn.

Take a moment right now to reflect on what type of assistance right now.  The easiest way to do that is to fill in the blank here:

I don’t know how to ________________________.

For example, “I don’t know how to make more money in my business” “take my business to $_____ yearly sales” “I don’t know how to create a leveraged business” or “I don’t know how to attract paying clients”. Whatever it is for you.

2. Express Your Intention

When you are clear, your intention is SO powerful. I remember the most powerful intention I ever set.

I was a year into my first Engineering job and I was BORED.  I knew I was meant to do something else.  I felt empty inside.

One day I felt a clarity come over me.  I realized, even though I didn’t know how in the heck I’d do what I loved for work or even what that was, I decided it was time.  With a strong sense of clarity and intention, I wrote these words in my journal:

“I know that I’m meant to be more and do more, I’m ready, show me the way!”

The Universe was obviously listening.  Within a few months I was laid off of my Engineering job and I began my path as an entrepreneur.  I would not be writing these words to you right now had I not wrote out that clear intention.

Your intention opens up worlds of support that you can’t see yet. Now that you’re clear, it’s time to let the Universe know that you’re ready for support.

Go ahead and write out (and ideally say out loud) the following:

“I accept that I don’t know how to ________________ and I am now ready and willing to receive the exact help I need, show me the way!”

3. Use Your Intuition

Once you activate the support all around you by stating your intention, it will show up.  And maybe other support that’s not for you will also show up. It’s up to you to discern what is the right support for you.

It’s important to see if the support that shows up feels right and fits what you need.  For me it’s important to not just use logic but to use intuition.  Sometimes intuition points out a way that feels right even if it seems like a scary thing to do.

Fear is not intuition, in fact, it’s often a good sign that you’re headed in the right direction.

The mentor I hired to help me leverage my business was a big investment and it was terrifying because of the situation I was in financially at the time.  Yet my intuition kept saying yes so I chose to trust it.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made, my sales doubled that next year.

If you’re confident in your intuition, great!  You’ll know what help is best for you and you’re good to go.

If you’re not sure how to use your intuition confidently and quickly when it’s time to make a decision, I highly recommend the “Choice Illumination Process”.

I created this program because I had made so many decisions using my intuition that led me to a more prosperous and profitable business and I knew others could benefit from the process I use.

Right now it’s only $47, and is going up to $97 soon as this skill is so valuable!

3 New Energetic Challenges To Step Up to in 2013

Now more than ever, there are new energies coming in to support our growth and evolution at a rapid pace.  It is an amazing energy that can draw you into the highest and greatest experiences in life.  Yet, it’s not always a walk in the park.  I’d love to share with you a few tips to understand and handle this new energy that’s here that has a huge impact in your business.

The energy we are in, more than any other time in history, is the energy of “Illumination”. 

Doesn’t that sound all rosy and nice…  Illumination.  Bright, shiny, glowing, radiant, enlightening – Illumination.

Illumination can be a wonderful thing, but there’s another side to illumination you may not be as aware of.  One I first became aware of after beginning to read Kryon channels years ago by Lee Carroll (a man who channels and was invited repeatedly to channel at the UN www.kryon.com).

The challenge with Illumination is that it means the light is being turned on.  Not just in the nice, beautiful places you’re so used to.  The light is also shining into those really dark places you’ve wanted to ignore your whole life.  All those things you’ve swept under the carpet are now visible and getting attention.

When the light turns on, it illuminates the dark places.  And it’s often not a pretty sight.  I believe that’s what we’re seeing in the world today.  The dark is being exposed.

So what the heck does this have to do with your business?

Everything.

Light demands integrity, clarity, truth.  It calls any darkness out to be dealt with.  This creates many challenges in business to be faced and dealt with.

Here are 3 ways this new energy may show up in your business:

1) Motivation

Have you felt a loss of motivation lately?  The old motivators not quite doing it for you anymore?  Perhaps money or recognition drove you in the past and now it simply doesn’t drive you like it used to.  Perhaps being motivated to succeed to “prove” you’re worthy or capable of success just doesn’t work either.

In this new energy, results created from old motivators fall flat or just don’t happen like they used to.

We are being called to move to a deeper, more sustainable fuel source.  The fuel of your natural essence, your Divine nature.  This can only be accessed when the old motivators and the reasons for their existence fall away.  We are being called to live from the core truth of who we are rather than the old programming of the past.

2) Lack of Clarity

Sometimes in the new energy you can end up in a state of confusion or lack of clarity.  This is often a great sign that rewiring is happening internally.

This often happens to bring about a deeper energy of truth from within you to be expressed in your business.  I truly believe that your purpose in your business is to be as fully YOU as possible.

Often times of confusion or lack of clarity is here to help you do just that.  What no longer excites you? What could you let go of or adjust so it feels like YOU?  Embrace the gift of confusion as a way to take you higher, to greater fulfillment, passion and money.

3) Facing the Truth

The days of ignoring your intuition, of ignoring what doesn’t feel right inside and powering through are winding down.  We are moving into a time of Truth, of Realness.

It is a time of facing the truth, which may not always be pleasant but is necessary.

Facing the truth of your feelings about many things in your business may sometimes feel scary, yet how can you create a business that feels thoroughly good if you don’t face the fact that some aspects of your business don’t feel good?

I’m a big believer in the Law of Attraction, it’s important, yet what is also becoming more and more important is HONOURING yourself.  Denial is an energy we are being called to let go of.

In this new energy, ignoring the truth might work for a while, but don’t be surprised if something happens to shake things up and make you face it eventually anyway.

The promise of facing the truth is being able to create TRUE happiness, creating success that is truly fulfilling, creating your business match your true nature.

What truth have you been avoiding facing in your business?  What about your business or the way you operate in it doesn’t feel good anymore?

Just because you face the truth doesn’t mean you have to change anything.  Honour yourself by facing the truth and opening the door to what can be.

Resonate with any of these challenges? I’d love to hear about it, share your comments below!

3 Simple Steps To Align Energetically For Success!

Many people want to jump right to the success right away.  To making lots of money and helping lots of people.  The truth is, success is created day by day.

And the key to creating success is to pay attention to the most important element in your business: Your Energy.  Your energy is most important.  Everything else is secondary.

Yes it is vitally important to take action, to know how to market your gifts effectively.  I’m not saying all you need is the right energy, that’s not true.  But if your energy is out of alignment, it has a MAJOR impact on your business and your ability to succeed.

What do I mean by “out of alignment”?

Out of alignment means that you don’t feel good.  Perhaps you feel tense, stressed, worried about money, doubt in yourself or fear for example.  This is when your energy is out of alignment.

If your energy is out of alignment, everything else will be out of alignment as well…

The actions you take will not feel good.  That means everything you DO will have an underlying energy of the out of alignment energy – doubt, fear, stress, whatever that may be.

And why does that matter? 

If your energy is out of alignment, you don’t feel good, that energy seeps into everything that you do. 

Let’s say you feel fear about money, you’re scared you won’t make enough money this month and you’re feeling it.  And let’s say with that “out of alignment” energy, you write an email to your potential clients.

That energy is not only in you, it’s shaping your mental state and your words.  With that energy seeping into this email to your potential clients, what do you think happens?

They feel it!  Maybe it’s just at a subtle level.  So subtle that maybe they don’t even open the email.  Or they read it and are on some level absorbing that energy themselves.

Yuck!!

Not to mention because you were in a fear state when you wrote that email, you likely were not accessing the words and ideas that were abundant, generous and magnetic.  Likely it was the opposite.

And what is “in alignment” energy?

Energy in alignment with the truth of your being.  And the truth of your being is total abundance, love, generosity, peace, flow, ease, grace, and more.  It is full, overflowing.

The more time you spend in alignment, the more you can access abundant ideas, opportunities, more clients, the exact support you need to get to your next level of sales.

The more time you spend in alignment, the easier it will be to grow your business, reach more people and make more money.

I’d love to share with you one of my favourite ways to get into alignment each day.  Grab your favourite journal, or even just a piece of paper and a pen and get started now!

3 Simple Steps To Align For Success!

This process uses what I call the “3 Magical Words” which are:

“I See Myself…”

I got these 3 Magical Words from Esther Hicks and I am forever grateful they came into my life.  By starting the first line with “I see myself…” you automatically engage your vision and imagination.

These 3 Magical Words place you into the future you’d like to create.  Rather than having your future be created by default, you’re picking up the paintbrush, pulling out the colours and are ready to paint a new picture of YOUR choosing.

1. How You Want to FEEL “I see myself feeling ________ as I go about my day”

Start out with how you want to feel.  You start by CHOOSING how you would like to feel on a given day.  Write as much as you want about how you’d like to feel that day.

For example: “I see myself feeling deeply connected to Spirit, to the love within me as I go about my day.  I see myself feeling a deep sense of joy and inspiration.”

Tip: If you wake up feeling very low and not feeling great at all, don’t go for “excited” or “amazing” as feelings.  Perhaps on a day like that, feeling “peaceful” would be perfect for you.

2. Add In What You’d Like to Manifest “I see myself feeling ___________ as I ___________”

Now you can fill in some of the details you’d like to see manifest.  I like to start out with what I’d like to feel first and fill in the rest.

Some examples:

“I see myself feeling totally connected and inspired as I write the article for my newsletter.”

“I see myself feeling confident and connected to my passion as I speak with my potential client Mary.  I see my words coming easily and naturally, I see her feeling a deep connection to me and what I share.”

“I see myself feeling deeply connected, in tune, in the flow.  I see myself attracting incredible opportunities to get my work out to more people.  I see myself being magnetic to all those I am meant to work with.  I see them synchronistically ”being guided to me with ease and grace.

3.  Finish Up With How You Want to Feel At The End Of The Day “I see myself feeling _________ at the end of the day”

The final place to go is to how you would like to feel at the end of your day.  This is KEY!  And one of the most powerful elements of this process.

This is my favourite part, as I love when I catch myself feeling exactly what I wanted to feel as my day wraps up or in the evening.  It’s such an awesome confirmation that I AM creating my reality.  I chose to be in alignment and it happened.

Here are some of my favourites:

“I see myself feeling a sense of accomplishment as I finish up my day.  I see myself feeling proud of myself and of what I accomplished.”

Here’s one I used when I was still working at my Engineering job part-time as I was building my business.  I used this when I woke up knowing I’d be on a huge downward spiral if I didn’t do something to stop it.  Don’t underestimate it’s power, this line alone was likely responsible for me leaving that job way faster:

“I see myself leaving the office at the end of the day feeling peaceful.”

Spend a few minutes each day, or more if you choose, aligning yourself for success.  It can create a major shortcut to success for you!

When manifesting is not enough…

Sometimes manifesting is not enough.  And there is a very specific reason why.  Perhaps there is something deeper in the way.  If there is something deeper sabotaging your results, it makes creating success WAY harder than it needs to be.

For Those in Transition: A Light in the Darkness

There are times in your life that you come across more difficult challenges. These challenges can test your faith in yourself and your trust in the Universe. The challenges that shake your foundation for you to see that it isn’t as stable as you once thought. The parts of your foundation that you had leaned on for so long are suddenly not so stable.

Sometimes challenges come to help you to shake loose those things in your life that are no longer beneficial to you. Recognize that this is all a part of growth and it is a good thing, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. If you are facing such a time, realize that nothing leaves your life unless it is time for it to. And nothing leaves your life unless you really are opening up to the possibility of something truly better and more rich and fulfilling in its place.

And in these more difficult times, the darker times where confusion, uncertainty and unknown seem to be wherever you look, know that this is only transition time. And that transition only leads you closer to the life you long to live. A life filled with all of the wonderful things you have wanted for so long.

The thing is, if you ever want to get to the new, you must go through transition. And while most of us prefer to feel steady and stable, allow that need to be set aside and trust in the process of life.

Transition is necessary. Facing the darkness of confusion is necessary to help you dissociate from what has been and to begin to open to what can be.

Some people call this the void, because you look around and don’t see much. You have no idea what is to come. Yes, you may know what you want, but you see no signs of it coming.

Remember that the void is necessary. It is the transition between what has been and what is yet to come. Welcome it and allow yourself to be in this uncertainty. Any rushing or attachment can cause limitation and lack in your future. While allowing yourself to be in this uncertainty allows you to be aligned with and open to the pure potential of this time.

And in letting your need for certainty go, you allow your future to be so much brighter. In relaxing in this time of the unknown, you allow your life to move more toward the infinite, the unimaginable, the Divine.

Be easy with yourself during this transition time. Allow the purpose of this time to be served. Be open to the unfolding of that absolutely amazing life you’ve been wanting for so long. Release your need to know it all. Trust spirit. Trust life.

Trust that you are always taken care of and are always being guided to your true desires. And with that trust comes the possibility for much greater depth and dimension to your life. Enjoy the gift of this time. Allow yourself to be cared for by the Universe, rather than being comforted by the old comfortable familiar. Let the silence of the unknown deepen within you. Feel the potential of this time and rest in it.

Know that even the darkest times are a gift. Be willing to see the gift of this time and it will be given to you.
