3 Keys to Getting Clear On Exactly What it Is That You Do

One of the biggest stumbling blocks in business is narrowing down exactly what it is that you do.  Many people can struggle with this for years feeling way less confident than they could and charging way less than they should because they can’t get to clarity around this.

When you are not clear you often end up doing work that is not your purpose and working with people who are not your ideal client.  Both of these have a devastating effect on your confidence in yourself and belief in your value.

And doubting your value plays out in your business in so many ways.  You doubt your fees, feel an uncertain feeling in your stomach and to avoid feeling it you may stop putting your work out there and really sabotage yourself.

Not being clear about your message and what it is exactly that you do can also cause you to be connected to your passion and inspired one day and the next day waking up feeling zero motivation.

This is a painful place to be, I remember thinking I was clear about what it was that I do, but I really wasn’t.

If you have trouble explaining what you do to some random person you meet then you are not clear.

 

If people’s eyes glaze over when you tell them what you do, then you are not clear.  If the thought of going to a social gathering where you know someone will ask you what you do makes you dread it then you are not clear on what it is that you do.

Getting clear on what exactly it is that you do, so you can explain it to someone and they actually get it is a powerful thing.  It can accelerate you in your business like nothing else because you can finally see the true value of your work and you have a strong WHY driving you.

Here are a few shifts in perception to get you started clarifying what it is you do so you can finally move towards owning the value of your work:

1. What you do is not your healing technique, modality or training

People think their training, technique or label for themselves defines what it is they do.  This is the furthest thing from the truth.  Your clients aren’t people looking for someone to treat them in a certain way or using a certain technique.

Your clients right now are having some big challenges in their lives, challenges that are causing them pain, challenges they can’t solve on their own.  Challenges that you can help them move through because of who you are, what you know and your abilities.

They aren’t looking for a healer, they are in pain and are looking for relief from that specific pain in their lives.

2.  You are here to help people with a practical everyday challenge

Likely the reason why you can’t explain what you do is you don’t understand the practical everyday challenges that you are here to help people with.

A huge piece of my work is the Intuitive Healing Process I use, but that’s not what I do.

I help spiritually conscious entrepreneurs who are stuck in their business but have no idea why, making way less than they know they are meant to in spite of all they are learning and trying.  I help them get out of their own way, get to clarity around their passion, own their value so they can finally begin making real money doing what they love.

I know their pain because I’ve been there and I know the way out. This drives me in my business because I care about my clients, I love that I can help them get out of that pain that I was in a few years ago.

Thinking what I did was help people heal cost me.  When I got crystal clear on the challenge I am here to help my clients with I was able to double my business and it continues to grow at an accelerated rate.

3.  You are not here to work with everybody

Your purpose is clear.  You may not know what it is yet, you may have some clue but I can tell you that your purpose is to help specific people with specific challenges.

I don’t help just any entrepreneur.  I only help spiritually conscious entrepreneurs because I get them, I understand how they work, what gets them stuck and what they need to learn to get out of their own way because I am one of them.

Getting to clarity is one of the most profound things you can do to accelerate your business growth and your confidence.  Get started right now by setting your intention to get clear and asking for support in this.

Getting clarity around what it is exactly that you do is one of the steps I take all of my clients through.  If you would love to have clarity around your purpose, to KNOW the value of the work you do is truly priceless (that’s how you know you’ve nailed your purpose), you can do exactly that in the Freedom to Shine Program that starts right away.

But because I know spiritually conscious entrepreneurs I also know what energetically blocks them from being able to get this clarity and to even know what their gifts are and purpose is.  So we heal that first, right away so you can get clear and have unwavering faith in yourself and your business.

Time is running out, go here to apply now to find out if this program is right for you!

3 Simple Tips that Could Save You Years of Struggling in Your Business

Are you struggling to get your business going?  Trying one thing after the other yet you’re still stuck?  There are a few things I have found allowed my business to open up in a whole new way resulting in major growth in my business at a few points in time when I needed it to grow.

I remember a few years back feeling so stuck in my business.  I felt like I was trying everything to grow it yet my bank balance had nothing to show for all of that effort I was putting in.  But it all turned around during a major turning point that I chose to step up to and create for myself.

Here are 3 tips I’ve found can save you years of struggle in your business:

Tip #1 Believe, Even when there’s No Evidence

There were two major turning points in my business where I decided I would create a major increase in sales.  Both were times when I was not making what I needed to and both times there had been no evidence that these major leaps in my business were possible.

I chose to believe.  I chose to trust that I was put in a not-so-nice looking position in my life because I was meant to take my business to a new place.  I chose to believe in my purpose, in my path, in the gifts I have to share with those I’m here to help.  I chose to have faith, which is what I believe set up an accelerated path ahead of me and brought me exactly what I needed to create the major growth in my business I was looking for. Which leads me to the Tip #2.

Tip #2 Get Help

The first major income increase in my business happened at the same time I chose to step up.  The same time I chose to have my business support me financially even though the reality in my business was nowhere near that.  Within a few short months, I WAS able to support myself.

How was I able to do this?  How was I able to propel myself forward so quickly?

I got help.

And not just any old help as I had been getting in the past.  I got help from a mentor who really got me, who’s message spoke directly to me, someone who was on the same path as me but was further ahead.

There are SO many programs and mentors I’m sure you’re exposed to.  Trying anything and everything out there won’t move you ahead, it will just leave you overwhelmed and struggling longer.  So just how can you know what’s right for you?

Tip #3 Your Guidance Shows You the Way

Once you decide you’re ready to step up in your business, expect to be guided to which support you need.  But it’s up to you to FEEL what is the right support for you.

Now sometimes you are called to make decisions and to step up in a way that does not seem logical.  If you want to save years off of your path you don’t want to follow the regular logic.  You want to be in tune with the Universe’s logic as it knows all of the shortcuts.

Whenever I make a decision to participate in a program or hire a mentor I get really quiet and check in with myself.  I want to feel that it’s right, to know from deep within me, even if my mind is trying to say no. Feeling right doesn’t mean it wont freak you out to step up and say yes to it, in fact that’s a sign I look for to show me I’m going in the right direction out of my comfort zone, into new territory.

Not only do I check in to feel if it’s the support I need right now, it has to make sense as my next step.  It has to match what you feel is missing in your business.  When I know it’s time to step up I start to become aware of what I believe I need help with in my business, what’s missing.  And countless times I’ve attracted exactly what that was. And this helped me to recognize it when it showed up, adding to my confidence in my decision to go ahead with it.

You don’t have to struggle for years, there are shortcuts and you find them by believing in the way (even though you can’t see it yet) and getting the right help to support you.

3 Tips for Activating Fearless Faith in Yourself and Your Business

Do you really believe you will succeed in your business (and not in 10 years!)?  And do you believe that your business can transform from whatever stuck state it may be in now, to an entirely new reality in a short time?  Or is your faith a bit shaken because all you’ve seen is a long, drawn out struggle to get it going with no evidence to show you it can even succeed?

Recently a new Platinum Client told me that she wanted Fearless Faith.  She was a bit unsure of her gifts and abilities and whether or not she is even meant to use them to help people.  If you are going to ever be able to succeed doing this work that you love you MUST have total faith in yourself and your ability to succeed.

Here are a 3 tips to help you begin developing YOUR Fearless Faith:

1. You Don’t Do it Alone

Most spiritually conscious people are used to feeling alone, having not many people really understand them and support them in the way they really want. But when it comes to having Fearless Faith you need to trust that there is a force greater than you guiding your business, ready to step up and support you when you step up.

Creating a major reality shift in your business requires a lot of energetic shifts, consciousness shifts and for you to develop new business skills and abilities. You can’t do it alone, and you don’t want to!  Knowing you’re supported in ways you can’t even imagine yet is what you need in order to have the faith you need to succeed.  And it wont come unless you ask!

2. You Have What You Need RIGHT NOW

Do you know you don’t put yourself and your business out there like you know you could because you’re doubtful of your gifts or abilities?  Most spiritually conscious people are perfectionists to some degree and needing to be perfect before you believe in yourself can slow you down for years to come.

The truth is, with what you know now, with the abilities you have now, with the wisdom you’ve gained from your life experience, you are a HUGE help to your clients. What is obvious and simple to you is what your clients struggle with.  Your simple words can open up their world!  Even now.

Fearless Faith means believing in yourself and your ability to help those you are meant to help, even RIGHT NOW. You don’t have to be perfect now, and if you decide to believe and just get out there you will be amazed in a year or two at how much you’ve learned and how much more capable you’ve become.  Don’t wait, you could end up waiting for years or give up and that’s no good to anyone!

3. It’s Not About You

So many of my clients get hung up on themselves, not feeling good enough, not sure about their value, if people will like them, and on and on.  But I quickly remind them that a lot of it is not at all about them and by taking themselves out of the equation it becomes easier to take powerful action forward.

So how is your business not about you?

I believe you were given the gifts that you have AND the desire to do what you love because you need a lot of fuel to get you to the place where you’re succeeding.  You’re used to looking at your business through your eyes, but I want you to look at it from a different perspective.

You were given gifts and a message because there are people who need to receive your gifts and to hear your message.  There are people in a pain right now that you can help heal. They can’t do it on their own, they don’t know how, they can’t see what you can see.

The Universe wants you to help these people, it wants to help you get your business succeeding because that means you are living your purpose, helping the people who need help. That is your purpose!  Fearless Faith is activated when you know that the Universe is 100% behind you, supporting you to succeed.  Trusting in that can take you way further than you could believing you are all on your own.

You ARE meant to succeed and when you tap into the Fearless Faith inside of you, you can become unstoppable!

How Facing Reality Can Fuel a Quantum Leap in Your Business

As a spiritually conscious person I’m sure you have learned that you have to focus on what you want in order to manifest it.  While this is absolutely true, not facing the reality in your business could actually be blocking your quantum leap in your business, I want to help you turn this around.

Using the Law of Attraction deliberately really has helped me grow my business, but what fascinates me is that the very thing that sparked accelerated growth in my business was the OPPOSITE of what you are supposed to do.

It is important to see the best, to believe in the potential for your business even when there is no evidence that it will become your reality.  I believe this fully and this is the essence of Fearless Faith.

But if you want to generate a huge spark within you, if you want to grow your business at a WAY faster rate than you have been, it’s time to try something else.

There were two times in my business where I totally accelerated the growth of my business in a huge way.  One time more than tripling my business within 5 months and another making more in 5 months than I did the previous year.

Did this happen because I manifested it? Probably, but what came first was a huge wake-up call.

Before each of these massive growth periods something happened.

I stopped seeing what was not there and I got the courage up to face the actual reality of my business.  And it was scary.

The first time, I had left a relationship, a home I loved and was starting out fully on my own.  Because I have 3 big dogs I needed to live in a house, I couldn’t just rent a room in someone’s house.  And at the time my business was rarely breaking $1000 in a month.  My reality was NOWHERE near what it needed to be.

I had to face this reality, the reality that, if I was to continue as I had been it would take years to grow my business to the place where it could support me.  And that wasn’t an option.  And I was NOT going back to my Engineering career again, I couldn’t do that to myself.

This facing reality did 3 important things, by facing your reality you can open this up for yourself too:

 

1.  Acknowledging What I Was Actually Able to Manifest

I always say you can’t change what you don’t face.  If your business is making nowhere near what you want it to then it’s time to face that.  It’s time to acknowledge that:

What you have been able to create in your business so far matches your energy as it has been, your consciousness as it has been and your business skills and knowledge that you have.

And if you want to manifest MORE than what you have had, you MUST change your energy, consciousness and business skills and knowledge.  The bigger the growth you want in your business, the more you will need to grow and transform YOU.

Look at the growth you have been able to create in your business and decide if that’s enough for you.  If not, you are in a powerful position to step up like never before.

2. Opening to Receive Support

When you see what you’ve been able to create on your own, what you are able to attract and manifest as your business reality and you see that continuing at that pace of growth is not enough, an important shift happens.

You realize you can’t create huge business growth on your own.  You simply don’t know how.

Admitting this may feel like a failure to you but it is actually a HUGE success.  Why?

Because you aren’t supposed to do it alone! The days of struggling on your own can literally be a thing of the past.  And they should be.  The Universe has such incredible support just waiting for you to ask for.  Each huge leap in my business happened at the same time I asked for support and said yes to the support that felt right, even if it also felt terrifying at the time.

3. Finding Your Fuel to Propel You Forward

Denial of reality is a dangerous place to be because it allows you to keep going as you have been, even if you are running yourself and your bank account into the ground. By looking at how far your reality is from where you want it to be you can access a whole other deeper level of your power that can truly propel you forward.

When you face your reality you have a choice, maybe at first the victim part of you wants to take over.  But if you call on the faith you have inside of you, the belief you do have in the work you know you are here to do, the belief that the Universe wants you to succeed, you access a reservoir of fuel that can never run out.

Only after facing reality was I able to access this huge reservoir of fuel, not a second before.

I encourage you to face your reality, you don’t have to dwell on it but face the full reality of your situation to experience these powerful shifts that can fuel YOUR quantum leap.

Have You Turned Over Your Financial Power to Others?

During difficult financial times it is easy to get caught up in feelings of powerlessness.  During these times it is also easy to begin seeing your clients or something external as the source of your income in your business.  But this view on the financial power being outside of you is the last thing you want and actually holds you in financial lack and prevents abundance from coming into your business.

So what happens when you see your clients, your partner, your savings, your retirement or some other external source as your financial source?

You actually repel money and clients away from you in your business.  When you see your power as outside of yourself you do not own the incredible power you do have to create exactly what you want.

Seeing your clients, partner or anything else external as your source also leaves you feeling needy and dependent on others.  And your potential clients can feel it.  And while support is a great thing, signing on clients is a great thing, handing over your financial power is not.

At one time I saw my partner as my financial source and security.  I didn’t realize it at the time but this was actually preventing me from being able to be my own financial source and had prevented my business from taking off.  As soon as I had left that relationship I in essence stepped into my power and owned my role as the creator of my financial reality.  Within 5 months I had more than tripled my business.

Why is that?

Because seeing something outside of yourself as the source of your abundance means you are not in your power in your business.  And it is simply not the truth.  More importantly:

If you are going to create a successful business doing what you love then you must be in your power and own your power as the creator of your financial reality.  There is no other way.

So let’s get you started in reclaiming your power over your financial reality with 3 shifts in perspective:

1.  The Universe is your source, YOU are your source, your connection to the Universe is your source

When you look at potential clients as your source of income it immediately brings you into the energy of attachment.  And with attachment comes a needy feeling that they can pick up on (yuck!).  It also narrows your focus to a specific person and a specific outcome, which in essence is a restriction of your energy. And restriction of your energy is the last thing you want!

This restriction can manifest in so many ways including loss of connection to your passion and the reason why you are doing this work in the first place, disconnection from your higher self as you are so focused on the external and a restriction of income.

In order to open up this restriction you need to acknowledge the true source of your abundance, which is You, the Universe, God or whatever you choose to call this higher power.  You are the creator of your reality whether you do this unconsciously or intentionally.  You know this, but it is time to reaffirm it if you are feeling as though something external is your source.

The money and clients you attract are both created from within you. Take back your creative power by reaffirming this.  Remember that you can work at the level of cause, your clients and the income you have are the effect of YOU.  The Universe brings to you what you are ready for, what you believe in and what you take action to help create.

2.  I choose to let go of my powerlessness

Seeing others as the source of your abundance shows on some level your belief in your powerlessness. As much as I’m sure you hate the thought of being a victim, allowing yourself to feel powerless sets you up to be a victim.

As a spiritually conscious person there are many deeply buried energetic blocks that are likely in the way of you fully stepping into your power.  And because being in your power is so important healing these deeper issues and being able to feel safe stepping into your power is one of the steps in the Fearless Faith System.

But you can start now with a simple choice.  Choose right now in this moment to let go of the idea that you are powerless and ask to be guided to how you can step into your power, how you can be the financial power in your business.

3.  Bring your focus to within

Seeing an external thing as your financial source is in essence looking outside of yourself for what you need.  On a deeper level you know it is impossible to get something from outside of you that you do not already match inside.

If you find you are looking outside yourself, stop and begin to look within.  Notice how you feel, acknowledge how you feel and choose to do what you can to feel better. Remind yourself that you create based on what is going on inside of you and for a moment choose to bring your focus to what you really want.  Envision what you would love to create and bring in the feelings of having what you want here now.

It all comes down to YOU and though this thought can be scary might as well just face that fear right away rather than have it under the surface keeping you powerless.  You CAN create abundance in your business.  It is part of the higher purpose of your business.  Remember that, own that and act as though it were true and you will be surprised what can open up in your reality.

The #1 Secret Energetic Block that Stops Your Business from Being Able to Succeed Financially

Do you try so hard to take your business to the place you KNOW it is meant to be yet the results you seek don’t happen?  Maybe you’ve barely made anything in your business or perhaps have got it to hundreds of dollars a month when you know it should be making thousands.

Maybe on some level you feel you know you are blocked but you can’t seem to figure out why. Perhaps it’s time to look a little deeper.

As a spiritually conscious entrepreneur you don’t just have to deal with normal issues like motivating yourself, learning to market and manage your time.

No.  You have deeper issues to face and work through.  In fact, I believe one of the biggest ways to accelerate your spiritual growth is to start a business doing what you love.

Creating a successful business doing what you love is the fastest way to dig up all of the major issues you have and to force you to deal with them one by one. And until you do, your business will not produce the impact or income it is meant to.

Today I want to share with you one of the BIGGEST blocks I see spiritually conscious entrepreneurs have that is SO extreme and hidden that it can be holding you back in your business without you having a clue. Literally has you repelling the sales and income you are MEANT to have, all without you realizing.

I have been doing intuitive healing work in my business for a number of years now and part of this work involves uncovering the deeper source of the energy blocks within you that are playing out in your life and business.

What I have seen holds spiritually conscious entrepreneurs back the most is that they have SO many deeper issues around being in their power. Power is a loaded word for spiritually conscious people, I’ve seen it over and over.

But the thing is, you MUST be in your power to succeed in your business.

There’s no way around it.  I believe you are meant to be in your power and not only that, that you WANT to be in your power.  Being in your power is a great place to be.  Your life works when you are in your power, you are inspired, synchronicity happens, you are fully being who you are meant to be when you are in your power.

Your clients can find you when you are in your power because you are a lighthouse with your light ON when you are in your power.

So what is the #1 biggest secret block to being in your power?

Fear of loss of love.

Seem strange?  It used to for me too.  Though I can remember every time my business appeared to be growing at a fast rate I would have this fear come up in me that somehow if I was successful I would lose the love in my life.

That’s how these secret blocks work.  They don’t make sense logically.  It’s not logical that you hold yourself back from succeeding in your business.

But the deeper truth, the truth the cells in your body remember is that in the past, past lives, there were serious consequences to you being in your power. One of the biggest and most common is that when you were in your power you lost love.

Now this could have happened in many dramatic ways I’m not going to go into here, but I want you to know that if you are not able to succeed in your business, if you put in so much and it still barely moves forward it is time to look deeper.

Spiritually conscious people feel like they should be able to figure it all out themselves.  That they should be able to succeed and they should be able to do this without help.

But I know what you are working against.  Yourself.  And until you uncover what these deeper issues are and resolve them, until you are finally grounded in your power in your business and in your life, it will just be a struggle.

I know because I was there.  And now I am more fully in my power than ever and I know what it took to get here in a way that felt safe.

Start your journey into your power right now.  Commit now to being in your power and ask for guidance to help you get there.  Claim the fullness of the purpose you are here for.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tired of trying to do it all on your own?  Ready for a shortcut to getting out of your own way from someone who has been stuck like you?

You don’t need to do it alone, if you want to uncover all 4 of the secret energy blocks to you being in your power and to heal them, that’s exactly what we are doing in the Divinely Supported into Success Program.

The #1 Way Your Relationship Dynamics Prevent Your Major Business Growth

I remember back when I started my business that it was not exactly the ideal time in a logical sense.  I had just moved into a brand new house that I had built and I had just been laid off of my Engineering job.

To those around me I must have seemed crazy, but what I knew was that I was being guided, that it WAS time I start my business.  There were signs and even when I just looked at the Engineering job postings everything in me said NO!!!

That first year was hard.  Trying so much to build my business but by the end of that year I had to admit that I needed another source of income and sadly returned to my Engineering career.

I felt like a failure.  I knew so much about the Law of Attraction and manifesting, why couldn’t I succeed?

My business grew over the next couple of years but still was not anywhere near able to support me financially.  I was SO frustrated!  What was I doing wrong?!

Can you relate?

I was trying SO hard, doing all I could, not realizing that my not-so-supportive relationship was secretly holding back major sales growth in my business.

Now I do not blame anyone for anything, my life is my creation as is yours.  But what I know now is this:

Your relationship is a mirror of you.

And if you do not feel supported in your relationship, it says something very important about YOU.  It says that you are on your own.  You are independent, maybe even a fighter.  And most importantly, it says that you CAN’T or DON’T allow support.

So what? Isn’t it good to be so independent?  A make it happen kind of woman?

In a word, no.  It is not a good thing for one VERY important reason that you need to get if you are ever going to take your business to the place where it supports you financially…

You can’t create a successful business alone.  And you’re not meant to.

You will need to learn from those ahead of you on the path.  And even if you could learn it all on your own, it would not be possible for you to find the exact right information because you are closed off to the most important thing on this path.

The support of the Universe.

If you are going at it alone, if you are fighting to build your business your energy says one thing:  I don’t need support.

And that is just not true.

Maybe that’s hard to hear but I know without a doubt that I did not create my success alone.  I believed when there was no evidence saying I should.  I trusted in the Universe to guide the way.  I trusted that there was a way.

BUT my business did not change until the dynamics in my relationship changed.  That relationship was not capable of being supportive, it was not for my highest good and I can see that looking back that I had to leave it to get here.  And it wasn’t until I let go of what was unsupportive that I was finally able to allow the support of my business growing.

Immediately I attracted an incredible program and mentor, the exact support I needed to create a MAJOR increase in my sales, within just a few months.  And to end up with a 322% increase in sales over the previous year.

This whole go it alone thing is so common among spiritually conscious entrepreneurs, particularly women and it has got to go.

The Universe has SO much love for you.  It not only WANTS you to succeed but has the way for you to do that. 

And it is WAY too difficult for you to be in a relationship that is unsupportive and succeed.  It is too present in your life and energy.  There are a number of reasons why and you can begin today to turn it around.

The Direct Link Between Your Relationship and Your Business

For years I had been coaching clients to create incredible shifts in their lives from within.  To do this, we use all that comes up in their lives around them to show what is going on within them.

I always used to say that the Universe uses those around you and especially your love relationship to show you what issues you need to work on next.  The result was not only personal growth but the relationships seemed to improve dramatically too.

Now I can see just why the Universe uses your relationships to show you your issues and more recently I have seen just how profound and powerful the connection is between your relationships and your business.

What is also incredible is that improving your relationships has a direct and positive impact on your business, particularly on your sales.

The unhealthy dynamics I was experiencing in my relationships were DIRECTLY reflected in my sales.

Are your sales low or non-existent?  Do you have high highs followed by low lows, unable to create any kind of lasting consistency?

If so, you want to look to your relationship first.  How we are in our relationships shows you how much you are in your power, how much you value yourself and your happiness and so much more.

If your sales are unstable with lots of highs and lows, it’s time to look for the link in your relationship.  Are you able to keep your emotions stable and high in your relationship or do you frequently get knocked down emotionally?

You are not one person in your business and an entirely different person in your relationship.  The issues you have in one your relationship reflect the issues you have within YOU.  And those issues may not come out as directly in your business but I can tell you they have a direct impact.

It’s time to explore what your relationship dynamics first of all say about you and to begin to heal so your relationships can improve AND your business can succeed as it is meant to.

Is Fear Blocking the Universes Support for You?

I have found that the Universe does not step up until we do.  But if you’re like most spiritually conscious people, fear can really get in the way of you stepping up and can actually keep your business stuck where it is or growing at a slow pace.

Fear says don’t do it, it meaning anything that is a potential risk.

Yet stepping up is in essence taking a risk, choosing to believe in yourself and your business and following through with your guidance on what stepping up looks like for you.  Perhaps investing in a program you feel drawn to, hiring a business coach, starting up a newsletter, whatever the Universe brings as your next step.  Even if your logical mind says it’s not a good idea.

Fear can keep you frozen, stop you from taking risks, keep you in situations you don’t belong in, stop you from doing what that quiet voice inside is urging you to do.  Fear can get in the way of you stepping up and being supported in ways you can not even imagine are waiting for you, even in this moment.

It frustrates me to see people afraid to take risks, to see that their fear is overpowering their intuition.  It frustrates me because I used to be one of those people.  And little did I know it held back my business growth in the most profound ways and that by choosing fear I was actually choosing to keep the incredible support of the Universe AWAY from me.

A few years ago I was in a relationship that if I admitted to myself at the time, was not at all where I wanted to be.  Yet I stayed because my business was nowhere near at the place where it could support me financially.  And I didn’t want to go back to my old Engineering career.

My logic said, if I stay I will be financially supported to continue with my business and if I left I would be forced to go back to a job I didn’t enjoy.  That is the normal logic.

But when you are a spiritually conscious entrepreneur the logic really doesn’t work like that.  The Universes logic is far more loving and supportive than you can imagine.  It’s actually us that stand in the way of that loving support by holding onto situations and our safe life when we could be soaring.

I’ve seen this twice now in very obvious ways.  Within 5 months of leaving that unsupportive relationship and moving with my 3 big dogs into my Mom’s house (which killed me to do!) I had multiplied my sales and was able to move out on my own without going back to my old job.

Could logic have seen this possibility?  No.  Yet to the Universe it WAS logical.  In fact, there was no way I could have succeeded until I had left because the energy dynamics I was in would not allow it.  And from a higher perspective, I had to get out of this dynamic in order to succeed.

Fear wants to keep you in situations and expressions in your business that keep you small and safe.  But the Universe wants SO much more for you.  Way more than what you could ever even begin to imagine when you let fear run the show.

Is Your Spark Big Enough to Drive You In Your Business?

I have found that things do not really change in a big way until something becomes either unbearable or utterly necessary to create. If you want to create a big leap in your income in your business, you need a burning desire to do it. You need a Big Why.

A few years ago I was faced with one of the most challenging times in my business. I was leaving a long-term relationship, a home I loved, and financial support. I was leaving all of this and where was the first stop? My mom’s house. I moved my 3 dogs into her home, taking over half of it. This was very hard for me to do, I was always a very self-sufficient, independent person yet here I was moving into my Mom’s place.

But it was there that the magic really happened. It was there that I took my business from a very small income to enough to support myself financially, within 5 short months.

How can you create such a drastic shift?

You need a Big Why.

I had a huge why! I was NOT going back to my Engineering job “ again. And I had 3 big dogs, so I needed to live in a house, I couldn’t just rent some cheap apartment somewhere. So there I was, I HAD to do it, in my mind I had no other choice. There was no other option. My Big Why was very strong.

We are sometimes scared of being in such a difficult position, but I have seen that it is when we are in these kinds of situations, where there is no other option than to succeed that we do succeed. A fire is lit within us and we will do whatever it takes to make it happen. And often you won’t become the person who will do whatever it takes until you’re forced to.

Of course there is another way, but you need to dig deep to uncover your Big Why that is not as dramatic perhaps but that is powerful enough to draw out the whatever it takes part of you that is lying dormant right now.

Find Your Big Why

It is one thing to have dreams, I’d love to own a beautiful home, to travel more etc. but this may not be enough for you. So let’s dig deeper.

1. What will you be able to leave behind at your desired level of success?

What are you tolerating in your life right now that you can’t stand? What would go away if your business was generating the income level you want? What do you do just because you have to that you secretly dread and get totally pulled down by?

One thing I really only enjoy doing once or twice a year is cutting my lawn. But that leaves a lot of times of cutting the lawn that I would much rather be doing something else. Hiring someone to cut my lawn was one of the best things I’ve done because it freed up my energy, got rid of that UGH, I have to cut my lawn again feeling that was dragging me down. And now I can enjoy the beauty of my yard without the drudgery of having to make it that way myself.

Now it’s your turn, what can’t you stand? What would you love to stop doing if you had the funds to stop doing it?

2. What new reality will it allow you to live?

And to shift gears here, what do you want the money for? What lifestyle do you want? Where do you want to shop? What type of home do you want to live in? How often do you travel and where do you go? What new things would you be doing that you aren’t doing now? What would you do for fun that you are limiting in your life now?

What would you love to contribute to in a big way? What is a cause you stand behind that you would make you feel happy to know you are contributing to?

3. Who will it allow you to become?

And now for the spark, the drive, the passion. Who would you become in order to succeed in your business at the level you want? Who would you evolve and grow into? Who would you love to become, that more powerful, more inspiring, amazing energy you?

What does that evolved you look like? What is the most exciting part of being her? That she’s a leader, an inspiration to thousands? That she is totally free? Lives with passion deep in her soul? Who do you want to become, that deeper part of you that longs to come out, who is she? Someone who is creative, expressive and connected to her spirit?

Now take what you wrote out and re-read it and as you do, look for the items on your list that really pull you forward. Write those out on a separate sheet, they are your Big Why. Referring to your Big Why can be your fuel and if it is compelling enough it can begin to pull you forward without needing the drastic situation to do it for you.

I’d love to hear your realizations as you go through this!
