Over the last few weeks, I found myself staring at my to-do list and quite honestly I wasn’t feeling inspired by the items that were on it. I was actually overwhelmed by how much was on it, how much time I had, what was next, what was done, it just snowballed to the point I somehow hurt my back and could NOT WALK!
Luckily one of my clients is an amazing embodiment coach and she helped me use yoga to let go of the stress in my back and body. When I reached this back-breaking point, I decided that working like this just no longer works for me, serves me, or my clients. I made a conscious decision that I want to put my energy into what is calling to me. I want to be taking inspired ideas and putting them into aligned action. I want to have my days full of projects that I “can’t not do”, because they excite me and ignite me.
So, I started testing and experimenting. Instead of looking at a “to-do list”, which is how business has been done for so long,
I decided “to do” this… No list! Just my intuition and the Universe guiding me to where my highest purpose is in that moment.
Here’s what has happened:
> My clients have been saying we are having some of our best calls ever…
> I have had some of my best ideas ever…
> In just a matter of a week, I feel more energized and less overwhelmed
> The results for myself and my clients are through the roof
So here’s my challenge to you- why not try it?
What would your life and business look like if you truly just followed what felt good, moment to moment? I get it. It can seem irresponsible right? How are you ever going to get anything done if you are just goofing off all day? What about the work? What about the doing?
This sounds ridiculous, right? And yet, how is the “hustle and grind” working for you now? Why not try saying buh-bye to the should’s and have to’s, and follow what feels good, light and easy for one day and see what happens? I know I really found it interesting that when I just took a few moments to feel into my heart, listen to my soul, what I truly wanted to do and felt called to do- was be a creator- aka WORK.
When I did it because I chose to and I was called to, I could physically and emotionally start to feel expansion happening. And that means growth! And to an entrepreneur growth is absolutely everything! I would love to have you join me in this “to do list revolution”.
Share with me how this works for you, and what started calling to you. Because at the end of the day, how you feel is truly the most important item on your to-do list!
Have you ever hit a point in your business or in your life where you completely lost your mojo unexpectedly?
Let me tell you, I had this experience last week and it about wiped me out! As entrepreneurs, we thrive when we are aligned and have clarity around our goals, desires, and the action steps we are taking. But sometimes, when we least expect it, and for reasons we may not even know, an obstacle shows up that not only sidetracks us from our dreams but sucks the energy right out of us!
I want to share with you 4 simple ways to get back on track and get your mojo back when you hit one of these periods:
- Rest! Take the time to get some extra sleep, take a nap even! It is when you surrender to the circumstance that you give yourself the opportunity to gain more insight and get back on track quicker. So often we want to push and shove to get answers and get back up, but that is the exact opposite of what is going to get you back in the saddle. Resting gourmand is like hitting to reboot button. To some, it may feel irresponsible to walk away from the situation and “rest”, but it is actually the best thing you can do for yourself and your business.
- Write it out! Whenever you are feeling stuck or unsure, get out a notebook and some pens and write out exactly how you are feeling, and what questions you have rolling around in your head. Take a few minutes to reflect on how you are feeling and let it flow on to the paper. Ask for guidance and answers, and give a few minutes of space to let some answers come in. The Universe will never leave you hanging! The answers are there, just tune in!
- Water and Exercise! Get your body up and moving and stay hydrated. (after the rest) Water is going to flush your system and the exercise gets endorphins working! All great things when you are experiencing a downswing!
- Meditate! Everyone does it in their own way, whether you realize it or not. Find a form of meditation that works for you where you find clarity and connection to the Universe. Get your mindset reset, and before you know it, you will be firing on all cylinders again!
Always know that even in these moments of frustration and fogginess, there is a bigger purpose that you might not be able to see. New desires are stirring and fresh ideas are coming. It is in the darkness that we appreciate the light.
When it feels like things are falling apart, just trust that they are ultimately falling into place.
People are always curious what books can help them grow their gifts and help them expand their spiritual knowledge. Over the last 3 years, I have read hundreds of books on spirituality, psychic abilities, mindset and energy! I am a bookaholic! In fact, this year, for 2016, my New Year’s Evolution was to read the books that people bring up or recommend no matter what the genre. So every time someone has mentioned a book to me, I have either gone onto my Kindle and downloaded a sample, or bought the book from my favorite Barnes & Noble. Needless to say my nightstand and kindle are both on overload!
I also tend to get bored with reading the same book straight through, and will switch to a book that is more specific to whatever is currently happening in my life and business. Sometimes I will reach a point in the book where I feel like I have gotten all I need from the book and we go our separate ways. Sometimes I even use them just for “book readings”. I open up the page to a random passage that I am intuitively guided towards and read what it has to say! 100% of the time, it matches my reason for opening the book. I get a little shot of clarity, a message. In my opinion, every book that has ever been written has been channeled from the Universe, and I love everyone that I can get my hands on, even if it’s just for a short while! In some ways they become my friends, they give me guidance, encouragement and reassurance of where I am headed. They have helped me reach the level of success I have now, and will help me get to that next level!
Here I have compiled a list of my favorites, the ones that really inspired, moved and motivated me to keep digging and expanding! These are my top 5 books for growing your heart-mind and gifts!
Gifted by Lisa Andres
I read this book early in my days of uncovering my gifts as a psychic. Her words and vibe put me at ease and made me feel like I was truly not going crazy! This is a must read for anyone looking to open up and understand the process that psychic-mediums go through.
Keys to the Spirit World by Jennifer O’Neill
This book changed my life and opened my eyes up to what I was sensing and feeling around me.
Working with your Angels by Kelly Wallace
This book helped me get over my fear and changed my perception from spooky ghost energy to angelic energy! A total life saver during scary times alone feeling Spirit and not knowing how to communicate.
There’s more to life than this by Theresa Caputo
Even though I’m not a huge fan of the show, I loved this book! The similarities in our stories made me realize that I can take this gift to the world if I choose!
The Law of Attraction by Esther Hicks
I live my life and run my business based on the principles of these teachings. If you aren’t listening to Abraham, channeled through Esther Hicks, get on YouTube now and get all of the books! It will change your life and create a strong connection to the law of attraction!
What are some of your favorite books that have helped you transform? I would love to hear from you!
PS…If you have been interested in working with me 1/1 I would love to connect! I have a new offer that I am fired up about! It’s for women who are new to entrepreneurship, and are driven to create their spiritually driven business online! If that sounds like you- let’s chat sister! I’m looking for a few more women to work with me in this exclusive program!
What I mean by that is this… We are trained and programmed to work hard, long hours, stare at the paper, or screen until an answer comes, and to force ourselves to get things done. It becomes mind numbing work. It feels like work. You push through, try harder, force yourself to focus on the tasks and the to do lists. All to what? Earn money to pay for things and buy items that brings us and our loved ones happiness? So doesn’t it make more sense to just do the things that make you happy, that bring you joy? Because it is when you are feeling those emotions that answers will come and clarity will find you.
For most people reading this, the initial response is ” too woo-woo for me” or “pfff.. wouldn’t that be nice, easier said then done lady!” But believe me, I thought that way once too. And then I found out how to really make the law of attraction work for me and my life. I have transformed and helped my clients transform from working to living and thriving! All by connecting in with how you actually want to feel and what emotions you want to experience vs. what you want to buy and have. The key to manifesting what you want, is being tuned into how you are feeling! Our emotions are the quickest way to identify if we are heading towards creating what we want, or are headed down a path leading us to unhappiness and disappointment. Yet a lot of the time, our emotions get ignored, pushed away, covered with medications, or drugs and alcohol. (Btw. I’m not here to bash drugs and alcohol, they have a place as long as it isn’t to hide away from your life. Love me some margaritas!)
So, here’s a little emotional experiment for ya’. The next time you are feeling stuck, lacking creativity, or just not enjoying the work you are doing, pause for a moment and think of ultimately how you want to FEEL. How will you feel when you have the bank account you want, or the house you’ve been dreaming of, or the perfect partner, or ultimate career? Write out 3-5 emotions that come up for you. Then, make a list of activities that can make you feel as close to those emotions as possible! I call this list an “emotion shifting tool box”. Then, go do those activities! Even though it might seem irrational to go do that instead of forcing yourself to get your to do list done, it is actually the best way to be in the right place to attract whatever you want in your life and business! Those emotion shifting activities are what bring you into the right spot to attract positive outcomes and experiences! I’m telling you, it works, and it never fails! When I go to my tool box, and I pull out the activities and focus on how I want to feel, I start instantly feeling better, feeling clearer! I get ideas, I have breakthroughs, and find inspiration to get my “work” done. Only this time it’s not work, it’s aligned action! Those actions always lead me towards creating more of what I want in life and business! I hope you take this emotional experiment, and would love to help you create your toolbox!
