How have you decided to live?

This is a question that rubs many people the wrong way, but it’s an important one.

To really live in alignment with the Universal Laws, you have to take full responsibility for your life, results, and everything in between… not just some of the things, ALL of the things… including the way you have DECIDED to live your life.

Decision is an important step in the Manifestation Process and one that many women tend overlook.

In order to step into the life you’re meant to live, you have to start asking yourself… where am I deciding to live in alignment with the lies… and where do I need to start living in alignment with the Truth?

The “lies” are the stories we tell ourselves… the fears and blocks… the subconscious programming that keeps us “safe” and small… and the beliefs we’ve held since we were toddlers because that’s “how the world works” according to our parents or society.

Truth comes from Spirit, and is always in support of your highest and best life.

  • Can you see the Truth for yourself?
  • Can you see yourself living that Truth?

Sometimes the answer is yes, you can see the Truth. And in that case, you have to really ask yourself… have I DECIDED to live in alignment with that truth?

Sometimes the answer is no, you can’t see the Truth. In these instances, ask yourself a different question… can you decide to see yourself uncovering that Truth?

Making this decision allows you to open to receiving guidance from Spirit… your Truth.

So tell me, have you decided to live in alignment with the Truth?

If you’re decided, what does spirit tell you do next?

Hit reply and tell me what you’re committed to. :-)

My Own Private Gratitude Practice

I just wrapped up my own private gratitude practice. It’s one that I do every day and it’s completely transformed my life and brought me miracle after miracle.

Most days I do my practice first thing in the morning, but I’m human, so today I did it around 4:30 pm. #human

I have to admit, when I first started hearing about gratitude practices, I was completely  dismissive of them.

  • That’s too woo…
  • That can’t work…
  • That’s too simplistic…
  • And the big one… I don’t have time for that.

Even now, I can still resist it, but not nearly as much as before. ;-)

In fact, this afternoon, I craved it because I know it works. I know it clears what needs to be cleared. I know how key it is to receiving everything I want.

Gratitude for everything will transform your life and create miracles.

What’s the key phrase there?

It’s not actually gratitude, though of course that’s key and what we’re talking about…

It’s this: for everything.

Don’t be selective about your gratitude.

Gratitude for everything will transform your life and create miracles.

This is about gratitude for everything in your life… the good, the bad, the ugly…

  • The ugly cry you just had…
  • The insecurity you feel…
  • The frustration that you just experienced…

And yes, all the successes and good feeling experiences as well.

It’s all part of life.

Don’t let your circumstances define your state.

If you do, you abdicate your power to create anything you want in life, including your financial freedom.  

Gratitude for everything will transform your life and create miracles.

One of the things I do is I count and keep track of the miracles, because ya know… results count! Our minds can play us for the fool by both diminishing and over stating our results. It’s important to track what’s actually occuring.

This last round I counted 16 of the 29 miracles I desired having come to be. That’s pretty damn cool!

Some, of course, are in progress and haven’t fully manifested yet because they’re part of a longer term plan. All good! I’m grateful for that too. I’m grateful for it all.

Yet, these 16 miracles were not chicken feed! They were BIG miracles. New manifestations. What I truly wanted but didn’t have yet… all coming to being NOW.

I’m always delighted by the seemingly magic of it, but it’s not f—ing magic.

Miracles or manifestations happen by cause.

I encourage you during this Thanksgiving week to move beyond the standard way you express your gratitude and embrace it all.

Take control of your financial freedom and your life!

Getting Out Of No-Woman’s Land And Back Into Action

In order to create what we desire, we have to utilize both our masculine and feminine energies… because both are KEY to the eight step Manifesting Process I taught at The Unstoppable Woman Summit.

Step five of the process is to be open, which requires us to be in our feminine. We have to be open, fluid, and receptive… really surrendering and allowing ourselves to move with the natural unfolding. Receiving direction and guidance from Spirit.

Step six of the process is to act, which requires us to move into our masculine. We have to receive that direction and guidance from Spirit and take immediate action.

While I’m teaching this as a process, there’s actually a lot of movement between the two, and it’s about figuring out how to balance your masculine and feminine depending on what it is you’re trying to create for yourself or your business.

When we’re in worry, doubt, and fear… we’re stuck somewhere in between, not doing either. We’re not open, surrendered, and receiving… but we’re also not taking the actions that move the needle forward… we’re frozen, staring at our navel, or stuck in spinout and busy-ness.

I call this no-woman’s land ;-)

The way out is about recognizing when something isn’t working…

If you’re working 16 hour days, grinding it out, and running yourself ragged, but not seeing the results you want, it’s time to shift into the feminine and be open and receptive to direction from spirit around what actually needs to happen next.

If you’re sitting around just waiting, and there’s no momentum, no movement, no progress, it’s time to shift into the masculine and start taking actions to move in the direction that you want to go… because sometimes you just have to start in order to receive the divine download of what comes next.

This is just a taste.

There is so much to understand when it comes to the Manifesting Process and the Universal Laws of Success… but once you do, anything you desire is within your reach. There’s so much to understand just around moving between masculine and feminine energies, which requires diving into the Law of Gender.

I Wasn’t Always This Way

One of the reasons I feel so confident teaching what I teach is that I work diligently to walk my talk in my own life as well. I’m not the kind of coach and teacher that tells you to do something I’m not doing or haven’t done myself.

Especially when it comes to choosing to have a delightful life, no matter what.

But the truth is, I wasn’t always this way.

In fact, one part of my family could be described as “rage-aholics” who immediately go to blaming other people for what they’re experiencing.

Because this is an aspect of my family, it was an aspect in me… and I had to learn how to show up in a different way. I had to learn that even when I was frustrated and angry in my business, to CHOOSE to not get angry with or blame the people who work for me.

One of the biggest lessons I received around this is the concept of “blame the system, not the person.” So rather than getting angry and lashing out at team, I focused on where things went wrong in the system or our processes… I learned to find amusement in it… to not make things a bigger deal than they are (tech issues happen!)… and not to lose my cool.

This idea of “blame the system, not the person” works for creating anything you desire.

Rather than blame people or circumstances, you take ownership and you look at where things have gone wrong in the process.

  • Where are you not taking ownership for your results?
  • Where are you handing over your power to someone or something else?
  • Where are you not showing up and doing the work?
  • Where are you letting your stories and subconscious beliefs run the show?

This isn’t about shame or guilt, it’s just about noticing. We all have similar subconscious programming. We all have ways that we do this and derail ourselves.

The difference between successful people who are lit up and living a delightful life is they look at where things have gone wrong in the process… make changes… and keep moving.

If you want to create different results in your life, different outcomes… you HAVE to hold yourself to a much higher standard.

Are willing to step forward and do that for yourself? It makes all the difference in the world. #noexcuses

Do You Want A Delightful Life?

One of the things I talk a lot about is being delighted by my life… but what does that mean?

  • It means feeling giddy and joyful about 98% of everything I do…
  • It means feeling like I’m making love to my life and the whole world, every single day…
  • It means being lit up, inspired, fully expressed and engaged…

And laughing, a lot, especially when things don’t go as planned, which happens all the time!

Don’t get me wrong, I work hard.

I pour my time, energy, and attention into growing my business, creating new content, and serving my clients… but I am delighted by what I do, as I do it. I feel joy, enthusiasm, and amusement… even when it’s not going as planned. People tell me I glow.

Yes, I make time for play, rest, relaxation, and self care as well, but doing those things alone is not enough. To have a delightful life, you have to show up and do the work otherwise you’re out of alignment with yourself and that plain sucks. (This becomes a self-worth issue and kills the flow.)

But doing the work in that “grind-it-out” manner? That doesn’t work. That’s stepping into the struggle. You’ve got to flip the switch and aim to be delighted by it all of it, all of the time.

That doesn’t mean you don’t have issues or run into frustrations and obstacles… but you manage your mindset throughout ALL of it… you take 100% responsibility for the outcomes you are and are not experiencing… your own your reaction to what’s happening FULLY.

But what if you hate your business? Or one aspect of it or even an aspect of your personal life? What do you do?

Trust me, there’s a very simple way to do this and I’d love to teach it to you. But it’s going to take more than a newsletter to get you there.

This is one of the keys to rapidly increasing your income quickly and more easily.

The Polarity Of Desire And Expectation

There’s an aspect to my Manifestation Process that you may not have heard me talk a lot about…  it’s how you work the two poles of desire and expectation.

Claiming your desire is absolutely the first step of the process, but even if you’re taking action in alignment with calling that desire in, it may not happen if you’re not doing the work to get leverage over your subconscious programming and if you’re not truly EXPECTING it to happen.

What is expectation exactly?

It means you’re in the continuous expectation of the fulfillment of what you desire. You think about your desire… you fantasize, imagine, and play the movie of it happening… you feel it happening… you expect it to happen.

There’s no doubt… no wavering in your faith of it coming to fruition… no leaning on “plan B” or other backups in case it doesn’t happen. You act as though it will happen, because you expect it to happen.

There are a lot of different reasons why we can’t step fully into that expectation… all those reasons though have one thing in common… they create a double bind.

When you’re in a double bind you’re not giving a clear directive to Spirit and this causes you to get inconsistent or nonexistent results.

Sending a double-bind message is such a common way people derail the manifestation of their good.

But the good news is… if you master this? You’ll be able to master creating whatever you want with ease.

Want to learn more? Excellent!

This is part of learning to Be UNSTOPPABLE. But there is so much more to it as well!
