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.
