It's tax season time. If you're an entrepreneur like me, you'll be scrambling to get all of your documents in order. This includes your receipts, bank records, and a system to put it all into place. If you're smart and lucky, you'll have an accountant by your side to assist you.
Money. It's a funny thing. The flow of currency. A piece of paper that makes a difference. Representing power.
Transactions can appear complicated depending on your mindset. I'm one of those people who are challenged. Even having my spreadsheets neatly organized with columns, numbers create havoc. I can feel them rumbling around in my stomach. Thank goodness I meditate.
In the end I always come out in the black. Once again thank goodness!
I’m what you call an intuitive money girl. Let's shift that to a Money Goddess. I kind of like that. I think it fits. You're welcome to try it on as well, girlfriend!
As a Money Goddess, I attract abundance naturally. I'd like to say easily. But it does take some effort. In fact the more you can focus on the law of attraction, the more effective it will be.
So where do we begin. Let's start with you!
Becoming a Money Goddess
Who are you?
Self discovery is pertinent in almost every aspect of your life. Money included. How you think of yourself and how you show up in the world make a difference. Let’s examine that.
Do you believe you are worth it?! Do you deserve comfort? A steady stream of income? Extra money to play with?
How do you show up in the world? Take a look at yourself right now. What are you wearing? Are you composed? What is your posture saying about you?
Everything about your appearance, and I mean everything is a reflection of what you expect from the outside world. Go ahead, wear your jeans and T-shirt. Walk around in your sweats. But know that you will be treated like someone walking around in their jeans and T-shirt or sweats. Which means very casually and not very seriously.
True, there may be some exceptions to the rule. Especially if your jeans are really nice and your T-shirt is neat and new.
How you present yourself to the world sends out a direct vibration of what you expect to come back to you.
In order to start attracting something to you, you need to see it first. Clearly in your minds eye. Heck you can even write it down, or find a picture of it, print it and post it someplace you can see it often. Whichever way you choose, you need to clearly visualize what it is you want to attract to you.
Let's try that now.
Since were talking about money. Think of that right now. Imagine money. Imagine it flowing to you. You can see it as hundreds of dollar bills flowing toward you. Or piling over you.
I'd like you to think about how much money you would like to come into your life over the course of the next year. Go ahead and do that now. Now, add a zero at the end of it. And tell me how it feels.
Notice I mentioned money coming into your life. Not the money you were earning. Know that there are many sources of money. So as you see money coming toward you, see it coming to you easily. Unless you're really keen on working really hard, long hours!
When you came up with your dollar amount, $75,000 for instance, what was your reaction to increasing that dollar amount by one digit? Were you comfortable with the concept of bringing $750,000 into your life over the course of the next year?
These are serious questions in regards to how the law of attraction operates. If a dollar amount is too low, you may simply ignore it. On the other hand if it is too extravagant, you may be intimidated by it. Play around until you find the dollar amount that suits you.
This brings us right back to tax season! Look at the columns of your accounts receivable and accounts payable. Did you spend more than you earned? Are you in the black or are you in the red?
These are just a few of the ways you can tap into the Law of Attraction. But it's easy to forget about, to lose track of, to lose interest in! That's where coaching comes into play. Someone who hold you accountable, who guides you along your path.
I've worked with coaches myself who have helped me to attract more money into my life. It works! It especially helpful to have someone hold you accountable. A coach to remind you what your goal is. To help you set your intention clearly. And to celebrate your victories.
Be specific with your requests before sending them out to the universe. Because they will come back to you. If you ask for a lot of money without explaining how it will come to you, you may not like the source.
If you ask for abundance in your life without being specific, you may suddenly get a whole lotta stuff you don't want!
One time I realized I had no baseball caps. Hear me out on this. And I sent it out to the universe that I wanted baseball caps. Within the year I had seven. I don't even know how I ended up with them! Point being, be specific on what you want to attract into your life.
Nothing brings me more joy than watching my clients break through the six digit income plateau. You Can too.
