Were you taught that to get what you want you need to work hard to get it? That’s what I was taught and now I’m rethinking this whole working hard thing…To me working hard started to look like always having my phone next to me, checking my email incessantly and feeling like I couldn’t stop or rest for fear of missing an inquiry from a prospective client or something important from my kids’ school.
Then I realized that I was in a constant state of hurry and that the stress was doing the opposite of what I wanted and slowing down my progress rather than speeding it up. I took a week-long vacation in California completely solo and what I found was that I was able to finally rest and relax in the sun but that people all around me were on their phones, distracted and missing out on the joy of life too.
Now it’s my mission to show others that they can manifest at rest and that to relax is to receive. When we get quiet and turn off all of the distractions, that is when we receive the inspiration for what’s next and can rejuvenate ourselves much like a computer that’s being shut down and then rebooted.
To teach you how to manifest at rest, I teach a free master class called, Manifest with Ease. Check out my website here to sign up for the next session! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with things that you have manifested while resting on vacation!
When you were growing up did you have people praise you for working hard? Were you surrounded by hard-working mothers/fathers who modeled for you what hard work looks like and then told you that it is hard work and hard work alone which leads to success? Or maybe you were told that you could go out and play only AFTER you finished your homework and all of your chores.
The problem with this is that when we don’t allow ourselves to play until AFTER all of our work is completed, we never get the time to play. As adults this translates into needing our homes to be cleaned first, needing to be up to date on emails/work for our clients before we will let ourselves enjoy any downtime and then we get resentful when we see that we are never left with any time for ourselves.
This has been my story too and something that has helped me is to repeat the affirmation, “I deserve downtime.” It is why I booked an extra three days in California for myself to rest in the sun after filming my speaking reel for my business and also why I decided to put up that away message in my email that lets my audience know that I’ll be unreachable during this time so that I can completely immerse myself in the energy of rest and relaxation.
I know that in rest is when we receive and also know that if I am going to teach that we can manifest at rest and with ease, then I need to do that for myself first.
When I return from this restful period I will be teaching you how to relax to receive too in our Manifest with Ease Master Class. You can register for the Free Master Class here and I’m excited to share with you everything I know about letting it be easier for you too.
Have you seen the Matthew McConaughey movie, “Failure to launch?” It’s the one where he seems to have it all together and women fall for him easily but then they realize that he still lives with his parents and has no intention to move out and be on his own? Well this movie title popped in my head as I’ve been talking to my clients who have had so much clarity as to what they want to create next in their business but just haven’t launched it yet.
Many of them have gone so far as to book a retreat venue, to hire a team to help them lead it but haven’t made actual invitations to live human beings who will be the ones to receive their teachings and wisdom.
Why haven’t they made the invitation yet? Because of fear. It’s the part where we put ourselves in a place to receive a, “No,” and to many of us that’s terrifying. It makes us feel like our offer isn’t good enough and ultimately even worse, that we’re not good enough. We’re afraid that we’ll prove our ego right that says, “This has been done before. Who are you to teach this? There are others doing this and doing it better than you ever good.” If they never launch it, they never have to face that fear and can stay comfortable doing what they’ve been doing which is reworking their website, creating the actual program, anything BUT the part that puts them in a place to be rejected (and ultimately succeed too).
There’s not a successful entrepreneur out there who hasn’t felt these same fears and received tons of, “No’s” before they got those, “Yeses.” The more you practice receiving the, “No’s” with as much love and grace as you do in receiving those, “Yeses” the easier it will become. And before you know it your retreat/program will be filled with aligned souls EAGER to learn what you have to share and their lives will be forever changed because of it.
These common fears that I’ve seen my own clients and colleagues around me facing is what inspired me to create the Abundance Academy. It’s geared around getting specific with what you are asking for/launching whether it be a certain number of enrollees in your next retreat/program or to finally start writing that book and then we will hold you accountable for taking action towards making that dream a reality.
At the end of our 6 weeks together you will have gained the courage to reach out to those perfect fit clients, to share with the world what you’re up to and to take that leap of faith that your soul is longing for you to take.
If this sounds like what you’re looking for, reply to this email and we’ll set up a time to talk more about it. Thanks and may you have a blessed and abundant week!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! A message that I got from Spirit at my Virtual Book Launch Party was that all of us are mothers, whether we have our own children/fur babies or not. We are mothers of creation and have dreams that we are nurturing.
If you’re like me sometimes you get impatient waiting for those dreams to manifest into your physical experience and may end up working tirelessly in hopes that they will come to fruition faster. Much like a farmer who has planted his/her seeds though, demanding that they sprout faster and watering them furiously will not cause them to grow any faster. In fact the opposite may happen and you could drown them with too much water and focus.
Noticing my desire to work tirelessly to build my new academy and Manifest with Ease Master Class, I was reminded of my own teachings and to take a break so as not to burn myself out. Timely as it was my first business coach, Leah Remillet and I got reconnected who focuses on teaching time saving systems so that entrepreneurial moms can buy back their time. An affirmation that she reminded me of repeating to myself was, “I deserve downtime.”
