Raise Your Money Vibration

Today’s post is a follow up to my last post, “It Might Sound Woo-Wooey… But… It Frickin’ Works!!!” In that article, I explained why your energetic vibration is important and how it affects your reality.

If you haven’t read it and don’t buy into the energetic vibration idea because it’s too woo-wooey, go there first to get the full scoop from my very down to earth perspective.

Today I’m going to give you some very practical, tangible techniques you can use to raise your energetic vibration around money, so it becomes easier to get more of it.

Tip #1 – Awareness

Pay attention to your thoughts. Yes, your words are important. However, your thoughts are most important. If you find yourself saying, “I have more than enough money,” which is positive and supportive, yet you’re still thinking, “I’m so broke,” the thought will override the words you said and bring your energy down.

Focus on the thoughts you’re having. Don’t worry about changing anything just yet. Just notice what the thoughts are when you’re dealing with money.

Tip #2 – Stop and Shift in The Moment

Once you become aware of the thoughts you have around money and in what situations you have unsupportive thoughts, you can stop yourself and shift in the moment.

You might notice that every time you pay for something, you have thoughts of scarcity and maybe even resentment. Now, every time you are about to pay for something, STOP and notice your thoughts. Consciously shift your thought to something more supportive, which reflects what you really want.

Tip #3 – Come from Gratitude, Love, Trust & Joy

It probably sounds easier said than done to Stop and Shift in The Moment. To make it easier to shift your thought, focus first on your feelings. Find a way to feel gratitude. “I’m grateful that I have the money to pay for this now.” Feel a feeling of love in your heart and let that feeling of love expand. Feel total trust that more money will come to you and there is plenty. Finally, feel joyful as you pay the money and do it with the intention that it will come back to you 10 times, 100 times, 1000 times.

Emotions are the fastest way to shift your energetic vibration. Focus on these feelings when money comes to you also so you attract even more.

As you use these tips, you will feel the difference in your energy.

It Might Sound Woo-Wooey… But… It Frickin’ Works!!!

Mindset is the most critical key to success, no matter how you slice it.

If you go around saying,

“I’m broke.”   “I don’t have the money.” “I can’t afford it.”

You’re going to keep being broke. You’re going to keep not having the money. You’re going to keep not being able to afford it.

If you go around saying,

“I don’t have any clients.”   “No one wants to pay.”   “I’m just not good at getting clients.”

You’ll keep attracting the same thing. You’ll keep not having any clients. You’ll keep attracting people who don’t want to pay. You’ll keep not being good at getting clients.

However, if you shift your own vibration, then you can change what actually happens in your life… You can change your reality.

It might sound woo-wooey… but… it frickin’ works!!!

When you think thoughts about being broke, not being able to afford it, not being able to attract clients… these thoughts bring down your energetic vibration.

Think about it. How do you FEEL when you’re having thoughts like this? You probably feel heavy, lethargic and maybe even a little dark. If you really pay attention, you can actually FEEL that your energy is lower.

Everything is energy. We are energy.

It might sound woo-wooey… but… basic physics tells that mass (our bodies, objects, any physical matter you can hold in your hand) is simply Energy in another form.

E=mc2 (Energy = mass times the speed of light squared)

“It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing — a somewhat unfamiliar conception for the average mind.” – Albert Einstein, “Atomic Physics” film 1948

Like energy attracts like energy. So if you’re going around with low vibration thoughts and feelings, you’ll attract more low vibration results. If you’re going around thinking, “I’m broke” all the time, you’re going to attract more being broke.

As far as I know, it’s not scientifically proven and accepted that our thoughts create our reality. There’s a lot of red tape involved there. I have seen some studies and experiments that show a correlation. More importantly… and the best way for me to believe it works… is my own personal experience. I feel a difference between low vibration thoughts and feeling and higher ones. I see different outcomes in my life as a result.

To switch out of “being broke” and “not having any clients”…

Raise your vibration to attract higher vibration results.

I’m not talking about going around like Polyanna, saying only positive words and cliché sayings on the outside, while you still have low vibration thoughts and feelings. I don’t believe in “fake it til you make it”. You have to FEEL it inside. It’s not just the words. It’s not going through the motions. It’s feeling the feeling. People who think faking it til you make it worked for them aren’t really faking it as much as they think they are. They are feeling it or it wouldn’t work.

I see people all the time, speaking positively and regurgitating affirmations… “I’m wealthy.” “I’m abundant.” “I’m happy.” At the same time, they are still thinking and feeling, “I’m broke,” “I can’t afford it,” I’m afraid.” This doesn’t work. You have to shift your inner mindset, not just the outside. You have to feel and believe the words when you say them.

It also doesn’t work to come from a place of desperation. This is a very low vibration. You don’t want to force it. It’s about trust, faith and allowing. Allowing is very different than forcing or wanting. There is no desperation in allowing… and It might sound woo-wooey… but… it frickin’ works!

Think about how you FEEL when you really believe in yourself, when you really believe something you want is coming your way, when you really feel trust, faith and allowing. You can FEEL the higher vibration energy. You feel more motivated, inspired and at peace. Pay attention to those feelings and allow them to come more.

Bottom line:

If you want more money, more clients, more anything, raise your personal energetic vibration by shifting your mindset to truly think supportive thoughts and to truly feel supportive feelings.

It might sound woo-wooey… but… it frickin’ works!

How to Sell without Selling (and without being pushy)

I often hear people say…

“I don’t like selling.”

“I’m not good at selling.”

“I don’t want to be pushy.”

Maybe you can relate to some, or all of these feelings.

Here’s the deal… If you’re in business, you’re in sales. And that’s ok… because you can be in sales without “selling” and definitely without being pushy.

I have three specific tips for you today to sell without selling and to be sure you’re not being pushy.

#1 – Identify your ideal potential clients

The clearer you are on exactly who your ideal potential clients are, the easier it is for you to find them and speak directly to them. If you have difficulty articulating what you do, you probably haven’t clearly identified your ideal potential clients. While it might seem more lucrative to market to “everyone”, it’s not. I’ll share more on this in a future article. What you need to know for now is that you want what you say to resonate so clearly with your ideal client they feel as if you are inside their head and speaking directly to them.

#2 – Educate your audience

Once you know exactly and specifically who your ideal potential clients are, you also understand the problems they have and the common reasons they might hesitate to buy from you. Hesitation comes from a potential client having questions and often, not knowing what those questions are. You can educate them with high value information and help them understand everything they need to know to make the buying decision. This isn’t about educating them on how great you are, how much experience you have nor is it about how you can solve their problem. It’s about helping them understand their problem, what is at the root of it and what they need to solve it.

#3 – Ask if they want your solution

Only after you have given them high value content do you briefly share your solution in the context of their problem and ask if they want it. By this time, they know you know what you’re talking about and may already be asking you how they can get your solution!

Do you see how these three simple steps can help you sell without “selling” and without being push?!

Get the discussion going and make the real magic happen by sharing your ideas of how to sell without “selling” and without being pushy. Also, use the 3 steps and share your experience. I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below.

Results in 1 Hour a Day

Do you ever procrastinate?

Most of us do, at least sometimes. And when you do, it is probably because you feel overwhelmed by too much to do. It’s very common!!! It’s also very solvable.

Procrastination seems to happen most with actions that will quickly move you to your goals. Instead you spend time putting out fires and handling things that seem urgent in the moment, yet they aren’t as powerful as the actions you’re putting off.

Procrastination also happens when you look at ALL the actions you need to take to complete a big project, all at once. Here you have instant overwhelm and become frozen… or distract yourself to avoid it.

Here’s a simple trick that will help you in either situation.

#1 – Set aside 1 hour a day to focus ONLY on high impact actions… that means, those actions that will propel you toward your goals quickly.

#2 – Only think about the next one, two or three steps you need to take (depending on how long they’ll take you).

#3 – Set a timer for 50 minutes and focus your attention 100% on getting the first action completed, either until it’s done or until your timer goes off. If you complete it and still have time, focus 100% on getting the second action completed, either until it’s done or until your timer goes off.

Bottom line: If you spend 10 minutes planning 1-3 actions and 50 minutes with 100% focus on completing those high impact actions, you’ll move forward more quickly than if you work unfocussed all day. This also gives you tool to squeeze in high impact actions when you feel like you otherwise wouldn’t have the time.

Bonus Tip: If you have a special event going on, family in town, you’re on vacation, or something else is happening in your life that makes it challenging to fit in time for yourself… whether it’s a personal goal or your business, use this technique even if you need to shorten the time to 20 minutes (or even 10 minutes).

It’s ok not to do it all! You can always find a few minutes to do at least one quick, high impact action each day. And if you commit to doing so, you’ll have greater success than if you keep procrastinating because you don’t have the time to do it all.

Resistance vs. Choice

The decisions you make in every moment of every day shape the life you create for yourself… including your business or career. The way you make decisions comes from your beliefs, from the way you see the world, from the way you think and ultimately, from your mindset.

When we’re talking about mindset, the word “resistance” is sure to come up as well.

Resistance is defined by Merriam-Webster as “refusal to accept something new or different” or “effort made to stop or to fight against someone or something.”

In the world of personal development, “resistance” is usually perceived as negative behavior. When you push back against something, it becomes difficult and there is struggle. To illustrate this physically, put your palms together in front of you and push both hands against each other. Nothing moves. No one gets anywhere. Now, stop pressing with one of your hands. There is movement and the struggle disappears. Your pushing hand will naturally stop pushing, without even thinking about it. When you let go of resistance and go with the flow, life becomes easier. There is no longer anything to push against, so the pushing stops.

Does this mean you have to go along with everything that comes your way? If you don’t, does it mean you are resistant and have some emotional block you’re not dealing with?

No. It’s doesn’t mean that at all.

You might simply be making a choice.

Choice is defined by Merriam-Webster as “the act of picking or deciding between two or more possibilities.”

When you make a choice that goes against what someone else wants, does that make you resistant? Maybe it looks like it to them and maybe they’ll even “call you out on it.” Then, maybe from your point of view, they are being resistant to you making your own choice. It’s all a matter of perspective.

If your parents wanted you to be an accountant and you wanted to be an artist, would you be resistant if you chose to be an artist. From their perspective, maybe you would be. From your perspective, you would be making the choice that best suits you. Maybe your parents resist that choice or maybe they support it.

If everyone caved to opposition, our world would be sorely lacking in innovation and amazing ideas. We would miss out on great talents and who knows what else. In fact, who knows what we’re missing out on because people have gone along with the choices other people made for them, just so they can appear to go with the flow.

The question to ask is whether your choice is empowering you or disempowering you.

A true choice, based on preference or belief, is empowering. A choice made out of resistance against the other option or options is disempowering. When you are aware of this distinction and are being honest with yourself, you will know the difference.

The answer is within YOU. No one else has it.

When you live in YOUR true, empowered choice, you can create the life and business you want.
