BILLS! What comes to mind when you hear that word? What sort of feelings do you have in your body? Most people would say, stress, anxiety, fear or sadness. For the longest time, that was my story, but having recently been on an abundance and money mindset journey, I actually get excited to pay bills. You’re probably wondering WTF? You’re excited to pay bills?! Well, maybe not excited, but definitely content, and I’ll share why.
In December I decided to hire a coach to help me take my business to the next level. I had to stop playing small, or I knew my dreams and goals weren’t going to come to fruition. For me, that meant having someone who I can trust guide me through the process of my own personal and business growth. It also meant, that I had to put the middle finger up to fear, as I went deep into the zone of discomfort and invested huge amounts of money in myself… I’m talking money far larger than my monthly income. There was a big risk to it, but I knew it had to be done. For me, making the financial risk meant that I meant business, and I was going to follow through on the outcome I deeply desired, no matter what.
So, I jumped, and my husband courageously supported me on this decision as well. In fact, he told me to go for it! The minute I saw that he believed in me, I wanted to back out, because I was expecting him to say no. My emergency exit was now gone! Do I rise up, or stay small? I had no idea how these monthly payments were going to be made, but I knew in my heart that it was the right choice.
I’m certainly not a millionaire, or bringing in the 6-figure income that I’d like…YET. BUT I have recently set out on a journey to really test my patience, faith, and money mindset, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned thus far…
So, let’s go back to basics- In simplest terms, you can consider money as energy. It flows to-and-from, it’s a positive and negative. It never runs out, it’s just a matter of where it is currently placed. Sometimes it’s in your bank account, and sometimes it’s not. However, the more you hold onto it, the less you will have. AND that is the exact reason why I enjoy paying my bills! – instead of getting anxious or stressed about bills I now say to myself, “I’m so happy and grateful that I have bills to pay. I am pouring money into the economy, and that money flows back to me 10-fold.” By knowing that money has a flow to it, I can be rest assured that if I am willing to let it go, it will, in fact, come back to me.
Well that’s all good and grand Rachel, but what if you don’t have any money to begin with?! That’s a good question, and when I decided to hire my coach, I was asking myself the very same question. So, here’s where to start...
First off, examine your money story- often this is passed down to us. What was your parent’s idea of money? Was it never enough? The rich get rich, and the poor get poorer? If you’re wealthy, it’s because of dirty money? Was money overflowing? What story are you telling yourself, and how is it impacting your life?... My money story was that we can never seem to get ahead. We never had debt, but we couldn’t seem to earn/save much more than our living expenses. The minute I decided to throw that story out, and KNOW that I am worthy of having more, I started to see more.
When you come from a place of lack, you’ll have more lack. And that has to do with any sort of abundance, it isn’t directly related to money- could be love or health as well.
In Deepak Chopra’s 7 Spiritual Laws of Success. The second law is The Law of giving, and it’s directly linked to the abundance in your life. He states, “Because your body and your mind and the universe are in constant and dynamic exchange, stopping the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood. Whenever blood stops flowing, it begins to clot, to coagulate, to stagnate. That is why you must give and receive in order to keep wealth and affluence- or anything you want in life- circulating in your life.” So first, KNOW YOUR WORTH, and two, GIVE MORE OF WHAT YOU WANT.
Lastly, I’ve put the power of manifestation to the test. And yeahhh it kinda has a bad rap, some people think it’s total bogus, butttt I’m here to tell you that it’s not! There’s so much more to the law of attraction than just thinking of your dream house, and “pop!” Your dream house appears. The law of attraction works congruently with the power of action.
So here’s my manifestation technique that I used, to meet my monthly coaching payments, which was far more than my current monthly income, while I spontaneously quit my day job at the same time, to go full force into my business:
1. DECIDE- Decide with clarity and certainty what it is that you want! What is the outcome that you are looking for? Why is it an absolute must? Give it a purpose- if it’s money you’re manifesting, what will you do with that money? How will it serve not only yourself but also others?
2. BE- What version of yourself do you need to be, in order to attain that goal? So for me, the Rachel who already has a million dollar brand…how does she talk? Who does she surround herself with? What are her habits and daily rituals? How does she treat other people? Who does she serve? What does she do for fun? What’s her character like? ENVISION YOURSELF AS YOUR HIGHER SELF- THE PERSON WHO ALREADY HAS WHAT IT IS THAT YOU DEEPLY DESIRE.
3. DO- TAKE MASSIVE ACTION. So this goes back to goals, which I have a few live videos on. You must not only have an action plan to work towards what it is that you want, but you must do it from that place of your higher self. That version of yourself who already has it.
So to recap, think about your money story, and what how it needs to change. What would your highest self have as their money story? GIVE! Give what it is that you desire, and manifest it into reality through the three simple steps that I’ve laid out. Lastly, have an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE- BE HAPPY NOW!
