It is Not the Choice of the Craft that Limits the Money

As you practice your more positive, better-feeling story, in time your pleasure will become the dominant vibration within you, and then as you couple your pleasure with your means of earning, the two will blend perfectly and enhance each other.

There is no better way to earn money than to do the things that you love to do. Money can flow into your experience through endless avenues. It is not the choice of the craft that limits the money that flows—but only your attitude toward money.

—Abraham

Top 5 Steps to Up Your Money Mojo

  1. Write a Financial vision. Begin with the end in mind. Write down exactly what you want your finances to provide for your life so that it looks and feels as you intend it to be. Post your vision where you can see it every day. You can revise it along the way.
  2. Relook at your current Financial Picture. If you’ve been focused on what you don’t like about how far your current dollar can stretch then now take a look at your current life. See how much of it really does match the vision you just wrote. You want to hang on to those things and remember that part of your vision is already happening. That will sustain you when the going gets tough. Start aligning your choices so that your vision is the end game.
  3. Look at your current tolerations. What in your current financial life are you tolerating? What drains your energy or constantly bugs you? “I’ll cancel that account next month when I have more time” or “I know the kids will use the pool membership at some point. I might as well keep it…. for now.” Dump any of these things that you can dump now (without much effort or disruption) to make room for the new, good stuff coming your way.
  4. Clear the clutter. Surprisingly enough, the way our physical environment looks is a reflection of all other environments and vice versa. Begin to clear away clutter in general. Not only physical clutter but the clutter of too many open credit card accounts that you don’t really need or too many unnecessary distractions, activities, and commitments that suck your time and energy. Open up the energy for abundance to flow rather than just stick.
  5. Assess your relationship with Money. Do you Love it? Do you dream about it as a wonderful friend? Or does it drain you, upset you, or cause you problems? Is there anything you can do right now to release these feelings or change your relationship with them? Make room for an important, strong relationship with Money because in partnership you can have fun achieving the goals you’ve set in your Vision.

Do They Deserve It?

The person that needs to do something is not that person. The person that needs to do something is you! Some of those people in your life do not deserve your good thoughts. In other words, “They are bad. They are evil. They are wrong! They are inappropriate. They do not deserve your good thoughts,” and you stubbornly are not going to give them any. They may not deserve your good thoughts. But you do. You deserve your good thoughts about them. This is what the Art of Allowing is. It’s allowing my own Well-being.
—Abraham
Excerpted from: San Rafael, CA on March 09, 2001

This is so true but definitely a hard one for me. This quote was a “random” email open today because I don’t always take the time but today I did. As you know we get the message we are ready for. The only lessons that come into our path are the ones that we have sourced and are truly able to achieve. (I’m actually reminding myself of this right now … but you might already know that 🙂 )

My personal Theme lately has been about establishing boundaries. The way this is showing up for me has been in my relationship with my mother. She passed many years ago and I’ve been doing my best since then to make sense of the relationship we had while I was growing up.

At the time of her passing we were just starting to work things out but hadn’t gotten very far at all. The pain and anger from all the years of battle and betrayal was left for me to make sense of on my own.

A couple of months ago I finally came to an understanding of my mother as a woman. An understanding of how her mind worked and what may have been behind the way she treated me. My initial reaction when I felt the understanding was to forgive her and reach out for the feelings of peace that would surely follow.

But just then it occurred to me … this is NOT OK!!! I don’t care what her motivation was. The horrible way she treated me was NOT OK!!! And it felt powerful to hold boundaries for maybe the first time in my life. No matter what she was trying to accomplish I was the kid! Hurting me WAS NOT OK!!! I don’t care how good it made you feel or why!!!

Refusing to go straight into “now I understand so I forgive her” felt like a exercise in establishing a firm boundary about what’s acceptable and what is not in terms of behavior in my relationship with her. Even if it is about forgiving her spirit. The boundary lesson is for me in this human space.

So tell me … Do you tend to HOLD A GRUDGE? or Do you let things go quickly for the SAKE OF PEACE? Because I think I would have held on to this one for decades if left to my own devices.

“They may not deserve your good thoughts. But you do. You deserve your good thoughts about them. This is what the Art of Allowing is. It’s allowing my own Well-being.”
—Abraham

I owe thanks to God, Spirit, The Universe and Abraham for shortening my learning curve and giving me this message today. Like I said, I would have just held my boundary. Instead, I know it’s time to set my intention to remember good thoughts. I do feel vulnerable and nervous from past experience of letting my guard down with her.

So, what do we know for sure? The only lessons that come into our path are the ones that we have sourced and are truly able to achieve. In other words … God never gives us more that what we can handle.
Love and Blessings to you, Denise

Every Challenge is an Opportunity

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”  Dr. Dain Heer

Joy to You!

We get so used to trying to figure out what went wrong and why that we inadvertently find ourselves asking and getting answers to the wrong questions.

Last week I found myself banned from all my groups on Facebook… I know right? … I’m not allowed to join any until July 7 either.

I felt so frustrated because I just got banned without an explanation, and I kept asking everyone. Why am I banned? How do I find out? If I don’t know what I did. How can I stopped from doing it again? (I asked in private message you know as I’m banned from speaking in my groups on Facebook)

Surprise, Surprise – nobody knows!

My epiphany this morning is that I’m asking all the wrong questions. Now I get to practice what I preach, right?

I don’t actually want to know why I got bannedI want to know how I can be included in the lives of the people who are important to me. I want to feel secure in knowing that I’m not on the verge of being banished at any given moment.

So – two huge and powerful take-away and prosper items that came out of the “Facebook banning episode”:

  1. I’m responsible for allowing others to feel safe in their relationship with me. How many times in our lives do we reach a place in our relationships where we realize that they’re not meeting our expectations or we feel like our safety or well-being is threatened in some way. Maybe we don’t know what to do next. So we just walk away and never look back.

I’m done! That’s it! I don’t need this! I‘m out of here!

We may be leaving the other person not even sure what they did or what just happened. As we know, our responses to events are a result of where we are on our own path, together with where we’ve been and where we’re going, much of which had nothing to do with that person. So they really don’t know what just happened.

So, just like I had no idea what I had done to be banned from Facebook, (because I had never been a part of the decision that created their reaction) the experience was here to give me clarity that I needed to create strength and honor in my own relationships. 

All experiences are just mirrors of our own lives. That’s what the Dalai Lama means by “Be the Change”. When we see something that’s missing … BE the one to bring it. If I am the one that’s recognizing something and feeling affected by it… I am conscious of it as a reflection of MY truth. A truth that’s making its way to the surface to be expressed by me; through me; as me. 

Every challenge in our lives comes to us for the express purpose of creating opportunity to unveil our true nature and help us BE who we already are. And in my truest nature I desire a life filled with grace and ease. I experience this by taking the opportunity to explore challenges that come up in my relationships rather than walking away hurt and angry. I experience this by seeing that life is not happening “to me” it’s happening “through me and as me”.

When Oprah told us about her daily prayer to God -“Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”
Her life experiences have created the context necessary for her to bring what she’s learned to help others. And the same is true of us.

My Facebook banning illuminated the path of what my next steps are meant to be. Remaining present in my relationships and finding resolution to my challenges keeps me on the path to experiencing my life with grace and ease.

The 2nd Big take away and prosper item received from my Facebook banning episode is this:

  1. My frustration and angst got so much worse because I was asking all the wrong questions.

 We know for sure that the universe gets to work answering the questions we ask… Without judgment. What I truly wanted to know was,” How can I remain active in my relationships in a loving, powerful, connected way that feeds my spirit and brings all the joy into my space that I desire? ”

Now, on the surface it was about Facebook-but-when I explore deeper I get to see that how I am here is how I am everywhere. However we show up in one place in our lives is truly how we show up everywhere. That’s why we can learn something from one experience and then translate it so easily into the other experiences in our lives. Because we truly are Being who we already are and our experiences are just there to help us illuminate that which we are ready to unveil and express.

So the tool I want to share with you today is from Dr. Dane Heer at Access Consciousness. It’s the discovery part of his clearing statement. It’s a powerful question to clear away the debris that’s getting in your way so you’re able live the life you desire with grace and ease.

Remember earlier I said that I was creating more problems by asking the wrong questions? Well, this is the question that does serve our highest good when we are faced with a challenge or problem that’s feeling anything but graceful and easy.

The Big Question

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”

When I was fighting against my FB banning I just made myself more upset and didn’t solve anything. I never did find out why I got banned and in the end that was not a question that served me in any way.

What does serve the highest good in the face of any trouble or challenge is to stop asking “Why did they?” and begin asking “How Can I?”.  “How can I create joy, grace and ease?”  “How can I connect with the people who are important to me in my life?” “How can I share pictures from our fabulous mastermind getaway and have them be seen by the people I want to share them with?”

“What Energy, Space and Consciousness can I BE that will allow me to have total Ease, Grace and Clarity with all of this?”  What ever my “this” is at any given time.

Blessings to you, Denise

 

Longing to Simply BEcome Who You Already Are?

Are you Longing to Simply BEcome Who You Already Are?
As a Life Purpose Specialist I teach Spirit Centered Women how to partner Energetic, Soul Tapping Principals with Practical Systematic Strategies so you can, essentially, live and BE who you already are …fully expressed.

Leigh High School Oak TreeA concept that is important to begin with is the ability to accept yourself exactly the way you are.

This oak tree  is near the parking lot of my high school in San Jose, Ca. I’ll bet that tree never spent a moment feeling badly about not being a pine tree, or about not having the right branches or trunk.

In fact, that oak tree was once an acorn. And within that acorn was already everything that was ever needed to become the mighty oak. Just like everything you need to become the exact version of who you are has been inside you all along. Your perceived mistakes were simply part of the growth that needed to take place for you to blossom into the beautiful human being you are.

When the acorn experienced the conditions that “made welcome” the self that would come to express as an oak tree, it didn’t try to repair its shell. It didn’t panic and think it had done something terribly wrong to have such a broken shell.

In fact the acorn is naturally coded to become that oak tree.

When we listen and say yes to this inner yes, our life emerges to the next level. But when we resist it, deny it, or make excuses for why we can’t honor it, we get stuck, our life stagnates, and crisis ensues.

But, you don’t have to worry. Our crises are there to crack us open and release the seed of potential inside all of us ~ So we can live the Purpose for which we were born.

That’s when you get to feel the joy of living into your higher truth.

Blessings and Joy to YOU!

Make Welcome Your Dreams

Joyful Greetings to you!
I hope you are doing well and getting the chance to be outside enjoying a shift into gorgeous spring weather.
California is beautiful right now. I’m in t-shirts most days as I formulate my plan for drought resistant landscaping in my yard. Always love an excuse to create. 🙂
Our annual List-a-Palooza is beginning today and I can’t wait. It’s a 90 day interactive list building challenge that’s so incredible FUN! So I wanted take this time to reach out and connect with you for part 2 in this heartfelt and, hopefully, inspiring series. So…
Are you excited to be receiving this series about Simply BEcoming Who You Already Are?
As a Life Purpose Specialist I teach Spirit Centered Women how to partner Energetic, Soul Tapping Principals with Practical Systematic Strategies so you can, essentially, live and BE who you already are …fully expressed.
A concept that is important to begin with is the ability to accept yourself exactly the way you are. No judgement or criticism. What I know for sure is that every choice, every decision you have made in your life up until now has been divinely inspired. Even (and especially) the times that feel like the biggest mistakes.
How many times have you looked back at a previous experience that was so painful at the time, only to discover that you wouldn’t change a thing? So much of the turmoil we feel in the midst of achieving the results we have today was actually created by our own resistance to receiving what we originally asked for.
Resistance to BEcoming who we truly are and who we are truly meant to experience as ourselves creates a perception of mistake … not a true mistake.

In fact the acorn is naturally coded to become that oak tree. It releases its acorn identity to completely BE the oak tree it was already destined to become. And, although it is a natural process for us to BEcome who we already are, we fight what feels like the death of our soul. We resist the pain that occurs when our shells crack open rather than systematically creating the conditions that “make welcome” the dreams we already knew we wanted.
When we listen and say yes to this inner yes, our life emerges to the next level. When we resist it, deny it, or make excuses for why we can’t honor it, we get stuck, our life stagnates, and crisis ensues.

That’s when you get to feel the joy of living into your higher truth. Although it is counter-intuitive, the only way to alleviate the pain we resist is to surrender to it. Allow the Process of Transformation that is your perfect Soul-ution.
Have a wonderful day. Blessings to you, Denise

Trying to Fit In?

Happy Spring to you!
 
If you’re anything like me you’ve always wanted to fit in and at the same time you knew, without a doubt, that your deepest truths and beliefs couldn’t be compromised in order to do so.
I’ve often told people that I grew up feeling like a pear in a bowl full of apples.  Pears are great and apples are great … but … a pear is still not an apple.  It was a lonely way
to BE.
owl fitting in
Like this owl who is trying to be a tree in order to “fit in” ~ he does know on a deeper level that he’s not actually a tree.  Just like I knew I wasn’t actually an apple.
What he may not be realizing is that all of the qualities that make him Amazing are the same qualities that make him an Owl. (Can a tree soar? I don’t think so.)
Like You and Me.  The qualities that made us feel seperate from our tribe, growing up, are the exact qualities that bring us together as a tribe now.  They are the same qualities that are needed to help bring love, joy, calm and peacful feelings to a world that seems a bit crazy these days.
That’s why I’m putting together a free series to help us collectivly feel the higher vibration of Joy that we are so naturally coded to feel and to BE.
As we come into alignment with our Soul ~ with the place inside of us that has always been whole and unaffected by circumstances of life ~ we get BE all of who we already are … fully expressed.
If you’d like to receive this deep and heartfelt series just provide your email address at Legendaryleadership.net and let us know where to send it.  
 
Have a wonderful day.  Blessings to you, Denise

Autism Awareness

Autism heart

AutismAs you may know I’m all about giving from my heart and doing my best to help others to feel all warm and fuzzy in their themselves.
Yesterday I challenged each of us to do one nice thing that makes a difference in the world. Today this is mine. I hope you like it 🙂

April is Autism Awareness month so I just wanted to give a shout out to all the folks out there experiencing the Joys, the Mysteries and the Challenges of Living with Autism!

I saw this video on line from “A Night of Too Many Stars” and it was so heartwarming I wanted to share it with you.  Be ready for Goosebumps

Share the Wealth

Valentine VictoryMost of us have heard about the CEO of Gravity Payments raising minimum wage in his company to $70,000 a year. He also announced that he will be lowering his salary to $70,000 a year as well.

He certainly opened up a wonderful conversation about “Big Business” doing more to follow his lead by keeping less as profit and sharing the wealth.

Well, I want to take this conversation one step further. What if every person reading this did ONE nice thing to help another person or organization. What if WE put our money where our mouths are and bought groceries for a neighbor, brought a bag of dog food to the neighborhood shelter, gave gift cards to a homeless man in town, etc.

It really does add up. We can’t decide that somebody else should solve societies woes but we can do something that speaks directly to our hearts.

Are Ya With Me? 🙂

Post more ideas below that might help somebody even if it’s in a small way. Also, post ONE small (or BIG) thing you did to warm the heart of someone else.

You Can’t Have One Without the Other
