Fly – fly at the edge of your comfort zone and watch what happens!

I find myself at a bit of a loss. Each morning when I awake, it is difficult to get out of bed. It has been this way for so long now. I try to just tell myself that I have energy, that I will have more energy if I will only get out of bed and get going. The Yoga is helping, but even in there, I see that I am not pushing myself, not really motivated.

What is holding me back from true motivation? What ever happened to that young gal that was willing to try anything? Do anything to be the best. Even now, I want to go back to sleep. I guess that yes, once again there is a part of me stuck in the mindset that we cannot change our surroundings, that we are given what we are given. . . I don’t really believe that do I?

Part of me believes that I have it so much better than so many others, so I need to just enjoy what I have. I agree, but that doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t strive for more – that I should sit idly instead of taking inspired action toward being in the green in 2015.

In yoga or any exercise for that matter, I have to continue to tell myself that I am strong, that I am capable. I am energized. How though do I overcome fatigue?  I could fall asleep so easily right now. I am energized, I am energized. I have put on music for positive thinking, I am daily listening to my thought inspire audios. Yesterday I knocked out a big task, I copied over 400 email addresses into my email newsletter software and sent out a letter to begin the bookings for fall, which have already begun.

I do not however feel good about the letter I sent out, Why don’t I feel good about it? I am afraid that someone will see that I am offering to compete with my agents for their business and that they will not call me again. What if my agents see it as an attempt to get them work? What if I am really moving in the right direction with it? What if it is really just the beginning of my new SUCCESSFUL email campaigns?

I came to a realization this past weekend at the bridal show in Nevada Texas. I realized that I need to admit that I do just want to be taken care of. I need to accept that this is a part of me, that while yes I am capable of taking care of myself that YES I want it to be easy. I also need to acknowledge that I do not feel like it is easy.

What about it is not easy? Getting to the level of success I want is not easy? Why is that, because there is a trick to it. Is there? Isn’t there? What if it is just getting something accomplished every day? Each day just taking another step in the right direction. Even if they aren’t large steps – and to continue to learn and grow as I go along. But what if I want big goals fast, then don’t I have to work harder? What if I want to be able to have another child but to do that I feel like I want to have my life in the Green so that I can get us a larger home, be on top of all the appreciation that I will want to express to those who help me in bringing the new life into the world.

So truthfully then the hard part I am seeing is the urgency that I am placing on the want for things to be in the green. Yes? Wait –

Today in yoga I realized something, I realized that 3/4s of the time I simply don’t think I can do something and therefore I cannot – but when I do think I can it becomes a simple matter. There in yoga I began to wonder if there are 100’s of little things that seem undoable that pop into my mind in 1 hour of yoga – how many am I facing daily? What I need to affirm each day is that life is easy, that difficult things come easily to me. That I somehow manage to tap into the consciousness flow that brings what I want more easily into my life. Instead of looking into how to eliminate all of those 100’s of little undoables, look into the thousands of big doables. I can override the undoables – I can overcome that which tries to impede me by simply loving myself, by believing in myself.

It is amazing how easy it is to forget to love oneself. I must commit to loving myself, I do commit to loving myself. I am strong, I am beautiful, I am capable and there is nothing beyond my abilities that I desire to do. I am good at life at getting positive and engaged responses from people. I am good at helping people, I am good at connecting to the universal life energy flow and turning it into something more accessible to the other people in my life and beyond. Life is easy, Money is easy. The universal flow of the energy that we perceive as money is tapping into me now, I can feel it – feel the wave of it moving toward me – almost at lightning speed. I am so excited and overjoyed! I do believe that this money is mine – that I will be in the green in 2015. I know that the $11,000 a month is just the beginning and that so long as I continue to follow the flow and ride the edges of my comfort zone that I will continue to bring in more than I could ever need.

The universe takes care of me – so long as I trust it to do so. I do trust it to do so, I am so excited about sticking to the edges of my comfort zone – to be embracing my most vulnerable areas in pursuance of growth and I don’t just believe – I know that life is supporting me and that all the money – or energy that is represented in this reality as money is on it’s way to me NOW.

As all of this money energy makes its way to me I will first show appreciation to all of those who have helped me along the way to where I am now, I will take care of them before indulging in generously bestowing money on myself, my husband and baby.

The energy that is money feels amazing, it feels as thrilling as going on a roller coaster for the first time. I am thrilled to be experiencing it – I see it coming – I am watching it run to me, watching it flow like a waterfall into my bank accounts and pocketbook. Wow. Truly this is amazing. It is as though I did nothing at all except live my life to the fullest and here it came. Here the universe rewards me for living as we are all meant to truly live – at the edge of our comfort zone.

Come and join me! What does it feel like to you? I know that you can feel the flow of energy that is money manifest in this life – I know you can, so long as you try.

Pause for a moment – allow yourself to connect to the energy that is money. We can all connect to it, granted it is easier if we have experienced the having of it before – but we can all imagine it as we all come from a state of infinite abundance where no money is needed as we already are everything that money can buy. So believe for just a few moments that you can access the energetic field that is money in this reality, now draw it towards you, as you breathe in – draw the money towards you. After a few breaths in allow yourself to see the money flowing out to those whom you wish to express appreciation.  Feel yourself gaining this energy as it comes in and gaining more energy as you pass this energy out freely to all those you feel deserving of it. Imagine it, all that you desire to do is within your grasp. If you awake with a desire to try something anew, to do something that you have never tried before and you DO it! Everything that you desire to do you are capable of – anything which pops into your imagination is possible for you now, simply act and believe. That is all it takes – belief and action. Feel the energy, know that the possibility is there, the availability of your goals is ready for YOU!! Our dreams are ours for a reason, to give us something exciting to us to achieve.

Those who spend their life struggling – those who choose not to step up to the edge of their comfort zones do not gain that which the universe holds for them, as they are not trusting in the universe. Sort of like if you go to the refrigerator thinking that you are out of ketchup – you may not see that there is a brand new bottle right before your eyes. The money is there, the abilities to do that which you want to do are there if only you will ask and take the risk to develop the skill. Simply grasp onto the edge and hang on. Love yourself enough to not look back! Go where your heart takes you – fly – fly away with your dreams. Feel them overtake any worries which once occupied your mind. This life is the most beautiful of journey’s – we can achieve whatever we want – all we need to do is believe!

Tell me your thoughts, I want to hear them – what do you see when you are flying? What does the edge of your comfort zone look like? Is it the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? If not – fly higher!

I would be happy to walk you through this visualization if you are having trouble with it. Call me! 469.438.5010

Questions & Clearing Limiting Beliefs

“A creative mind makes uncommon connections. So does a crazy mind. A creative mind makes uncommon insightful connections” ~ Messiah’s Handbook by Richard Bach

You may have to check out my first blog of the day at AHHHHHH to fully understand how relevant the above quote is, but I will try to connect the dots for you below.

While I was having trouble sleeping last night, I kept thinking about how I wanted to accomplish my goals, if for no other reason than to let my son know that it was possible for him to accomplish his. I would never want him to give up, that is one of the saddest things to me as I believe that we have our dreams and ambitions because they are akin to our calling. Yes, I believe that we all have a calling, whether that is as a chambermaid at a Motel 6, President of a country  or being the next Mother Teresa – we all have a unique calling.

I knew as I lie there, that I had some limiting beliefs that needed clearing. One thought that my Monkey Brain or the neurotic little voice in my head (see definition of monkey brain AKA Neurotic little voice here) keeps throwing at me is “If you haven’t achieved financial independence by 35 what makes you think you ever will.” I do know that this is my monkey brain and therefore merely a thought to laugh at, but it also points me to a place where I have some clearing that needs to happen.

Apparently, there is still a part of me that believes that I am not capable of doing that which I want to do. A part of me that feels incapable, that believes that it is all luck or timing or whatever. Apparently, part of me is still blocking the flow of abundance in my life.

The good news is – that I am realizing it! Now, how do I go about clearing it? There for a while one of my daily affirmations was “I am so proud of myself for believing in myself enough to let all of my dreams come true, or something better.” Adding this back in wouldn’t hurt – but I want to clear this limitation out for good. Another thing that pops into my mind is the revelation I had the last time I got stuck here which was If I could love myself & have as much faith in myself as I do my child that I could in fact accomplish anything.

For those of you who are parents already – have you ever tried and successfully loved yourself as much as you do your child? I’m still struggling with that. When I think about the fact that my parents loved me as much as I love my child I am overwhelmed.

I am almost afraid to love myself that much.

  • Q: Why am I afraid to love myself?
  • A: I don’t want to have that big of an ego.
  • Q: Really? I am afraid of having an ego?
  • A: Partly, I don’t want to be knocked down by karma for being too full of myself
  • Q: But that isn’t real self-love – that is over inflated fake ego typically stemming from a lack of self-confidence and love – real self love comes with a deep appreciation for others and the ability to grow and change. So what is really keeping me from loving myself?
  • A: I don’t want to work that hard. If I chose to really love myself, I have to live differently. I will need to push myself more, in the gym, at home, in all my relationships. It just seems daunting and exhausting. 
  • Q: Is that really what self love is all about? Pushing yourself, never accepting yourself as you are? That doesn’t seem correct, does it?
  • A: well, no
  • Q: So – why do you think that truly loving yourself is a daunting endeavor?
  • A: When I think of how much my parents love me – of how much they want for me – it feels like a huge burden – an enormous amount of responsibility. How can I ever live up to being deserving of that much love.
  • Q: Whoa . . . . there’s a lot to address in that answer. First – take a breath. Now tell me, when you think of your son and how much you want for him – is there anything he has to do in order for you to continuing loving him? Is there even anything that he could do that would lessen your love for him?
  • A: No – he doesn’t have to do anything, I love him as unconditionally as any human is capable of loving another human.
  • Q: Wouldn’t your parents love for you be just as unconditional?
  • A: Yes, but how do I live up to what they want for me?
  • Q: You don’t have to live up to anything for them to love you, but let’s go with this here – What do they want for you?
  • A: For me to be happy and to accomplish my dreams.
  • Q: Isn’t that also what you want for yourself?
  • A: Yes
  • Q: Then where is the problem?
  • A: I’m confused.
  • Q: 🙂 Let’s slow down. Take another deep breath. You say that having people who love you unconditionally causes you a burden – a burden of needing to live up to what they want for you – but what they want for you is the same as what you want for yourself.
  • A: Yes, I’m with you so far
  • Q: So if you and your parents want the same thing for you, then why do you feel a burden?
  • A: Because I love them and I don’t want to let them down. . . .
  • Q: If you never accomplish your highest goal and choose not to be happy – will they love you any less?
  • A: No – of course not, although they may not be happy with my choices
  • Q: Understandable, but they will still love you
  • A: Yes
  • Q: So where is the pressure? What burden, what pressure are you feeling? Here – let us re-frame this. If both you and your parents who love you unconditionally want the same things for you, to be happy and to accomplish your dreams – then it seems like you have a couple of solid allies in your corner. Isn’t that true?
  • A: I guess so, heck, my whole family, siblings, in-laws, nieces and nephews, husband and child – they all want those things for me too. So I guess I really have a lot of people who love me and are wanting me to succeed. This makes me want to cry.
  • Q: What about it makes you want to cry?
  • A: How do I deserve this?
  • Q: What makes you think you don’t?
  • A: Because I haven’t made good on my goals yet
  • Q: So what? Have you been mostly happy?
  • A: Yes.
  • Q: Even if you had not been mostly happy – you would still be deserving of having your friends and family in your corner wishing you all the success in the world. But since your answer is yes – then you are already half way there.
  • A: I guess that if I want to – I can even channel this energy, all of the energy from all the people who love me – channel it into my focus for my goals? Use that to help me achieve success.
  • Q: Of course you can. 🙂 Is there anything else that makes you feel, think or believe that you are not worthy of unconditional love?
  • A: I’m not sure.
  • Q: Well, what comes up? I choose to know, is there anything else that makes me feel unworthy of love or my greatest dreams?
  • A: Not capable
  • Q: Why do you feel you’re not capable – and not capable of what?
  • A: I feel like I am not capable of achieving my greatest dreams.
  • Q: Okay, why?
  • A: I choose to know why I don’t feel capable of achieving my greatest dreams, because that isn’t why I chose to come into this life.
  • Q: Whoa? Wait – What? Are you supposed to be some sort of martyr or something?
  • A: Yes
  • Q: Huh? Where did this come from?
  • A: I don’t know.
  • Q: Is this part of a victim mentality?
  • A: Yes, but there are a lot of causes worth fighting for
  • Q: Okay- it sounds like what we really have here is another spin on the whole “I shouldn’t be happy because the world isn’t perfect” excuse. Am I correct?
  • A: Maybe, I’m not sure
  • Q: Let me clarify – I feel as though I am not capable of accomplishing my greatest dreams because there are causes to fight for that are more important than my dreams – is this correct?
  • A: That is what I was saying yes.
  • Q: Okay – so you don’t feel this way now?
  • A; I feel like I should accomplish my greatest financial dreams in order to have a greater positive affect in the changes that I wish to see in the world.
  • Q: Now, I’m confused. 🙂 So – when it comes to your greatest dreams – there is the financial side and the positive impact on the world side. So what I was initially saying was that I thought the change the world side should come before the financial side – but now I realize that should the financial side come first it may aid the change the world side.
  • A: Correct and I can even work on both concurrently.
  • Q: Okay – so I choose to know is there anything else inhibiting me from believing in my ability to achieve my greatest dreams?
  • A: I am not patient. This causes me problems, in the past I’ve often given up on something or not stayed the course because of a lack of patience.
  • Q: Would merely reminding myself how much I am loved, how many people are cheering me on and how much I deserve to love myself help me to persevere?
  • A: Why yes, yes I think it would.
  • Q: Okay – write down a new affirmation – I am so lucky to have so many amazing people loving me and rooting for me to accomplish my goals, or something even better. Add this – along with the others to your daily list to review.
  • A: Okay. I just had another twinge of negativity pop up from the monkey brain. .
  • Q: What about? What sparked it?
  • A: When I mentioned my daily list to review – I have yet to be successful keeping up with my ‘daily tasks’ as yet.
  • Q: So what keeps you from keeping up with daily tasks?
  • A: Back to the whole loving myself enough again, so I guess this clearing session is really helping with that. It was merely a twinge until I drew attention to it.
  • Q:  That is okay. The fact that there was a twinge and that I was able to define it, in and of itself is a good sign. I AM MAKING PROGRESS!! Do I need to clear some more?
  • A: I guess it would not hurt. I AM MAKING PROGRESS. I am allowed to love myself as much as I love my son. I am capable of being happy and accomplishing my dreams.
  • Q: Did that feel good?
  • A: Haha yes, I guess it did. Now I have new affirmation cards to make.

 

 


  • Q: Yes, yes I do – is there anything else I need to clear on before I get to that task?
  • A: Yes, I am a little concerned about motivation for the task of making phone calls to drum up some business tomorrow.
  • Q: Do I offer fantastic services?
  • A: Yes
  • Q: Do I go above and beyond for my clients?
  • A: I choose to now go above and beyond  – yes.
  • Q: Am I doing them a favor by offering them other products and services?
  • A: Yes
  • Q: Then why am I apprehensive about making calls?
  • A: I don’t want to bother people
  • Q: I just said that I am offering a great service, that I go above and beyond for my customers and that I am doing them a favor letting them know what else I offer. So why are you worried about bothering them?
  • A: They may not be thinking about what I am calling about when I call.
  • Q: So can you clear that up with a simple – ‘Have I caught you at a good time?’
  • A: I guess
  • Q: Care to elaborate?
  • A: I guess I just want to do what Deborah is trying to teach me to do – I want to be able to connect with these people, to become someone that they want to work with.
  • Q: What is stopping me from doing that?
  • A: I really loathe being on the phone and have a difficult time connecting with people over the phone.
  • Q: This is a whole other animal. Why do you loathe being on the phone?
  • A: Hard to connect – read people on the phone
  • Q: Is this something that you can overcome
  • A: It is something that I need to overcome
  • Q: How can I overcome my difficulty connecting with people over the phone.
  • A: Say a prayer before each call that I can be of service to the people that I am trying to reach and do business with
  • Q: Interesting idea, so this will help me connect and build positive relationships with clients?
  • A: Yes it will.
  • Q: Okay – how does this prayer go?
  • A: Dear lord, please help me to be of service to ______. Please allow me to connect to them at a time of receptivity and convenience. Please help me to not only provide great service but to also make a more human connection in an otherwise business day. What do I think?
  • Q: I think it may need a little tweaking but that it will work for a start. Do you feel better about the work at hand for tomorrow?
  • A: I do, I want to remember to record my calls though.
  • Q: Put up a note!

AHHHHHHHHHH

I got into work late again today and have spent literally over two hours discovering how NOT to forward my emails so that they can all be checked in one place & how NOT to be able to alter the notification sounds on my smartphone – so when my phone makes a sound I don’t know if I have received an email or a text message.

It may sound very childish, but I was literally in tears. I currently have over 8 email accounts – there are days that I spend well over 20 minutes trying to figure out where I received or sent a particular email. Forwarding them and handling them all in one place seemed like a great idea. At this point, it has not worked. Part of me wants to try again . . .

Hubby says take a walk, I normally do this. It is a good way to get my mind going in a different direction. I guess I am going to go do that now.

I walked, I do feel a little better even though this time I did not have a revelation as to how to fix my conundrum.  I do realize that I need to allow myself to focus on that which I am focused on. I guess that I need to let go of things that I think are problematic. I guess it goes back to Goal Setting and Letting Go. My intuition seems to be telling me that I need to focus on that which I am feeling driven to do even when there is something else calling for my attention. Can this be right?

My goal for the day was to come into the office, check my email and knock out getting something accomplished. I was just certain that I could get this ‘something’ accomplished even though I didn’t really define what that something was – which in that case – who is to say that I didn’t accomplish it. The feeling & visuals that I had about what would be accomplished was that it would have to do with my email list and opt-in page. I haven’t even looked at all of that yet.

So – my focus for the day has shifted. So much so that I am going to write 2 separate blogs. This one and one on clearing limiting beliefs and asking the right questions since I think maybe that is more important right now. . . .

What would Joe Vitale Do?

I am a BIG FAN of Mr. Fire, AKA Joe Vitale. The first of his works that I picked up was Life’s Missing Instruction Manual, probably 7 or 8 years ago.  This is still probably my most re-read book of all time. I have studied many of the teachers that Dr. Joe Vitale collaborated with to create this book and HIGHLY recommend it to EVERYONE. I’ve never given it to anyone who didn’t get a lot of valuable insights out of it.

Shortly thereafter I saw the movie, The Secret – and then I purchased Joe’s book The Attractor Factor. I have continued to study Joe and his books and programs ever since and have found all of his works to be of value. Last summer I even enrolled in one of his coaching programs and I gained some invaluable insights there too.

This morning as I lie awake – long before my alarm was to sound, I wondered what would Joe Vitale do if he were in my shoes? Would he see my sleeping in daily till 10am a problem that needed to be resolved? Would he see it as inhibiting me from accomplishing my career/buiness/financial goals that I often don’t make it into the office before noon? As I lied there wondering – I also believed I knew the answer.

If in my mind, I could not be a success without getting into the office early each morning then that would be true. If however, I believed I could be successful no matter what time I arrive so long as I take action and believe that I will be successful, I will be.

As I type this, I hope that I am in NO way mis-interpreting his teachings as I have the utmost respect for this man and hope to one day not only meet him, but also to call him a personal friend. I do think though, that I have it right.

I also wonder, does he sleep in? Does he always await inspiration to strike to begin work on his projects or does he simply use tools like The Secret Mirror and The Remembering Process to get things done?

I can imagine he would respond with the following. When I am passionate I want to keep moving and yes I do use many of the tools and techniques that I have presented to get the creative inspiration going when I may not be feeling it because I’ve learned that forcing a creation doesn’t work and doesn’t get the desired results.

Next Question – “Dr. Vitale, I find my biggest conflict is that there are soo many projects that I feel inspired about. There are too many things to accomplish with each one – I often just don’t know which one to work on next. Sometimes this even prevents me from taking any action at all.”

Imagined Response to this would be the following: “You have to take action, so do what you feel the most guided to do and take it one step at a time.”

So Dr. Vitale, today, I felt inspired to write a blog that is an imaginary conversation with you and to put my best effort into contacting you directly. 🙂 I hope that someday I will be a valuable friend to you and your amazing community of great thinkers. I also hope that if I was off in any of my imagined responses from you – that I wasn’t too far off and that I truly honored your teachings.
