For those of you on my exclusive mailing list, I sent out Abundance Tip #1 on the weekend. Thanks for your feedback on it's usefulness for you. (click HERE to join my mailing list and undertake the FREE 5 day inner peace challenge)
Today on the blog, I am offering Abundance Tip #2. You CAN afford that thing your soul says YES to!
Have you ever really really really wanted to do something but you don't have the funds?
Has your soul completely lit up at the idea of doing something but your mind insists.. "I can't afford it"?
You know... when your soul and intuition say a firm YES but your mind and it's old fashioned conditioning says Oh NO NO NO!
I hope you enjoyed the free meditation on the weekend.
Meditation is hands down THE most powerful skill I have learned along my life adventure.
I've spent 20 years mastering the skill and it has completely transformed my life on EVERY level.
Meditation has cut through my confusion, soothed my soul in times of heartache, it has highlighted and healed my patterns of disfunction and it has liberated me from much suffering.
Meditation has taught me how to connect intimately with the people around me and with life itself.
Meditation has taught me to be more focused and hence competent because when I am doing something, I am 100% there and committed to the task at hand.
Money is often a dirty word in spiritual communities so I'd love to share my insights and revelations on this controversial topic and discuss what has transformed my financial world from famine to feast.
So let's talk money, honey!
We are told we are materialistic if we focus on it, but if we don't have it, it can make living in the modern world quite challenging to say the least.
Money, money, money... you can love it, or hate it, but unless you are prepared to live in an ashram, walk the streets with your hand out or put up a tent somewhere in nature... it has become one of our modern day necessities.
Is money one of your trigger points for stress?
If so... you are not alone.
During a session with a client yesterday I asked him what his soul yearned for.
He said that he would LOVE to quit his government paid job as a health professional and start his own online business coaching others to live a healthy, happy and wholesome life.
I asked him why he wasn't doing what his soul is guiding him to do.
He said that his mind was telling him too many excuses and he felt stuck and unable to move forward.
I asked him what the excuses were that his mind was telling him.
If you could master one thing to ensure a fabulous life... in my experience it would be....
the soulful leap of faith!
For those of you walking a spiritual path you will have taken at least one scarey 'leap of faith' in your life before. Did it work out for you?
A leap of faith is required when our soul says YES to an offer or idea but the mind is struggling to make sense of it and blabbing constant doubts and excuses. When our mind can't see what our soul can see, it makes up excuses to avoid moving on.
"Oh I can't afford it, it won't work out anyway, I don't have time to do that, I'm selfish to indulge in my growth, I can do it all myself, I'll do it next time, next month, next year"... blah blah blah and on the mind goes with it's cheeky excuses!
Most of our life struggles come from listening to our minds doubts and excuses and not following our souls guidance.
Saying NO to our souls intuition is like saying no to the power of the divine and no to the fullness of life.
Have you ever felt the big rumblings of change coming but you are not clear what that change is?
Have you ever felt that your current circumstances are beginning to feel old and stale and you are ready to move onto something new... but you're not sure what, when, why or how?
Or maybe you know exactly what you want to do but you are paralysed with fear or overwhelm and terrified of taking the first step out of your comfort zone.
This is a feeling we all experience at different stages of our lives.
The divine crossroads on the adventure of life... a place that we can easily get stuck in for years waiting for the courage and clarity to move.
I certainly have been there many times myself. However, being the courageous free bird that I am I refuse to get stuck for too long.
When the rumblings of change arrive for me I am often drawn to a powerful spot in nature to contemplate. Nature is one of life's greatest inspirations. When immersed in nature any mental chatter, shoulds, doubts and fears usually dissolve and I am connected with the callings of my soul.
One of the biggest turning points of my life was 12 years ago when I was still working as an Occupational Therapist in the hospital system. I was counselling and teaching palliative care patients meditation, and ensuring their home was setup safely, which I loved, but the medical model and hospital system was driving me mad! Ahhhhh!
How could a job that I love be so frustrating!?! I had big dreams and visions bubbling below the surface but I could barely see past the safety of my regular government paid income and the conservative structure of the medical health system.
Until... I felt the call to Uluru.
We all have a dream but the road is often paved with giant excuses.
What's your dream and what is your list of excuses not to realise it?
I'd love to share with you the excuses that held me back for years and prevented me from realising my dream, in hope that it will inspire you to move past your excuses.
Do you often get stuck in a cycle of not enough YOU time?
Family, work and social demands keeping you in a dizzy spin?
Do you yearn for the time to be able to meditate, do yoga, read a good book, lie on the grass and watch the clouds, write in your journal, walk in nature or whatever keeps you in touch with YOU?
This is one of the most common complaints from my counselling/coaching clients.
"Ahhhh I have no time for ME?" they say.
In our busy modern lives our cheeky minds often create hundreds of reasons, justifications and excuses that constantly keep us from honouring thyself.
Excuses, excuses, excuses. Aaahhhhhhhhh!
You are more amazing, magnificent and extraordinary than words can describe. You are a walking miracle and deserve all of the treasures that exist in this world.
You are love itself with legs and arms. A walking bundle of magic and divine potential.
But I love to challenge you to grow and fully awaken so I must say...
you can also be dumb, wrong, bad, stupid and a failure!
Yep true! There... I said it... and I'll say it again!
You can be dumb, wrong, bad, stupid and a failure.
How does it feel to hear those words?
