One reason to share your gifts

If you’ve felt scared of putting yourself out there, check this out.

I’ve written thousands of pages of material around spirituality, abundance and entrepreneurship over the years.

Writing by-cathryn-lavery-67852

Spirit tells me I have enough material on my computer’s hard drive right now for five lifetimes.

So why is it sitting on my hard drive, and not out there in the world?

I asked myself this question in meditation:

“I know that resisting putting out this material for people to see and read is absolutely your best idea right now, so …

“Why does it seem like such a good idea to continue sitting on this material?”

I heard:

  • “I don’t know what’s going to happen if I share it”
  • “I don’t want to know what could happen if I share it”

So, I said, yes. You’re right.

Book 1

No one knows what’s going to happen if we share it. We don’t know what’s going to happen five minutes from now, much less what’s going to happen if we share our writing with the world.

I also see you don’t want to know what could happen if we share it. That’s fine. Since there’s no way to know what could happen, why would you want to know? Why bother with idle speculation?

This resistance to sharing more of my writing reflects my relationship with uncertainty.

I flat-out hate uncertainty.

As I thought about how much I hate uncertainty, this thought came into my mind:

There is ONE thing that’s certain about sharing my writing with the world.

The odds are 99% that if I put it out there, at least one person will read it someday.

Reading by-prasanna-kumar-218699

And maybe, just maybe, it could help them in some way, like:

  • They could think, “Wow, I never thought of that. Maybe I can do what I feel called to do, too.”
  • Something I’ve written could make them feel less alone, because someone else knows how they feel
  • Something in it will inspire them to speak the first kind word they’ve said to their spouse (or their child, their employee, their dog) in a week
  • They could feel inspired to start offering their gifts to the world, too.
  • There are countless other possibilities, but these four are excellent reasons to start sharing more right now.

There is ONE thing that’s certain about continuing to resist sharing my writing with the world:

  1. NO ONE will get the help my work could give them

That thought made me burst into tears.

Crying baby by-tim-bish-171738

The idea that I was withholding something that could help someone filled me with shame and despair.

So, I rushed to reassure that tearful part of me, “I know that was never your intention. You are kindness and goodness itself – you would never knowingly withhold help from anyone.

“That is NOT what you have done.

“What you have done is protect yourself from the uncertainty you hate.

“Yet it’s important for you to see that the effect of what you have done is that people you –and only you – could have helped have had to live without that help. Until now.

“I see you’re grieving over all the wasted years, the wasted opportunities to be of service, the wasted potential – and, yes, that’s sad.

Sad by-francisco-moreno-255749

“Go ahead and feel that sadness and guilt and shame – knowing all that wasted time is over in the moment you realize the effect of your decision to share only a little bit of all you’ve written over the years.

“In that moment of realization, the pattern of sitting on the material, instead of sharing it, starts to dissolve.

“The tide is turning right now, energetically, and you will stop doing the old pattern because it begins to break up the moment you observe it – just as a particle changes when it is observed by quantum physicists. It is the same thing, because everything is energy.

“The particles of withholding love, help, awareness, insight and support are breaking up now and re-forming into willingness to share what you have to give in generous measure.

How to Feel Worthy of Abundance 1

If you feel unworthy of love, success, or wealth, this video tip is for you

Here’s a great tip on opening to receive the Abundance you’re been trying so hard to attract.

 

If you’re of the millions of people who feel unworthy of love, success, or wealth – this tip is for you.

Chances are, one reason you feel unworthy is because you’ve done some things you can’t forgive yourself for doing, or failing to do.

I get it.

There are situations I look back on and think, “Geez, that wasn’t my finest hour.”

Listen – you were doing the best you could at the time …

Maybe today is a good day to let go of the guilt and shame that’s been draining your energy and blocking Abundance from coming into your day-to-day life.

Let’s do this together right now.Hand on Heart by-giulia-bertelli-94235

Put one hand over your heart and one hand on your belly.

 

Close your eyes …

And take a deep breath in as you say, “I am One with Forgiveness…”

And let a deep breath out as you say, “And Forgiveness is One with Me.”

Let’s do this twice more. Your unconscious mind needs to hear something three times before it believes it’s true.

Deep breath in … “I am One with Forgiveness…”

Deep breath out, “And Forgiveness is One with Me.”

Once more …

Deep breath in … “I am One with Forgiveness…”

Deep breath out, “And Forgiveness is One with Me.”

Good! Notice how you feel. Great job!

If you notice a change after doing this process, will you kindly share it in the comment box below? It might help others to know what you experienced.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back soon with another great tip!

In the meantime, if you would like to experience more healing around opening to receive the Abundance you have been asking for, click here for more info.

Are You Paying the High Cost of Low Self-Esteem?

Strengthening your self-worth may seem like an airy-fairy project you can easily put off until your life calms down enough for you to take some time for yourself.

The way things are going, you can put it off forever. Most people do. It’s not just you. Many of us have been trained since childhood to put ourselves last.  ian-dooley-298769

Yet, consider this:

Low self-worth can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost income – not to mention the deep personal fulfillment you can gain only from living your purpose.

If you feel unworthy, undeserving, or inferior to others:

  • You never launch your coaching or healing practice because you think you need to be perfect before you can help others
  • You never start (or finish) your book because you think someone else already said it better
  • You charge too little to stay in business because you feel unworthy of being paid what your goods or services are worth
  • Your artwork sits in a corner gathering dust because you think it isn’t good enough to display
  • You put off starting on your passion project because you’re afraid it will fail – or that it will succeed – or both
  • You will die without having sung your song

My dear, people are looking for you – yes, you, personally.

They feel your presence on the planet. Let it go

They need to hear what you have to say in the way only you can say it.

They need to see what only you can show them.

Maybe it’s time to heal the low self-worth that passes for humility in good-hearted, highly conscious people like you – so you can do what you came here to do with confidence and joy.

If you would like help with that, you are lovingly invited to join the September Abundance Healing Circle: Self-Worth Here and Now.

We meet online and by phone next Tuesday, September 12, to discover:

  • Why an authentic sense of self-worth attracts Abundance
  • What needs to happen for you to recognize your innate value – and doing it right on the call
  • How you can know your true worth without turning into an egomaniac or narcissist
  • What amazing things will happen when you gain compassion and respect for yourself and others

In addition, we will do personal, one-on-one healings with three callers – including you?

If this sounds good to you, click here for more details.  Self Worth Here and Now

If you’re waiting for things to slow down before you consider why your wants and needs stay at the bottom of your priority list…

It will never happen …

Because it takes a strong sense of your own value to claim the time you need to nurture yourself.

Maybe allowing yourself to take 90 little minutes to join this call – live or listening to the MP3 download – is a good place to start.

If you sense it’s time for you to start walking toward the greater yet-to-be calling out to you … one baby step at a time … come join us!

Who Screwed Up Your Abundance?

Why do long-desired blessings show up – and then vanish?

With all your struggles, your prayers, your achievements, your unmet needs …

Why haven’t you gotten any closer to the rich and fulfilling life you yearn for, deep in your heart?

Good question!

  • Is it because you screwed up?
  • Is it because your parents screwed you up?
  • Is it because the Universe screwed up?

Sad by-francisco-moreno-255749

Consider this

If you can only have the blessings you are willing to receive … and that’s pretty much how the Universe rolls … it would explain a lot, wouldn’t it?

  • Why a financial windfall shows up, then slips through your fingers before you know it
  • Why you have a wonderful first date with someone special – who never contacts you again
  • Why you ace an interview for your dream job, only to find out it’s given to someone else less qualified than you

Look, situations like these are not your fault.

It may be that having “more than you deserve” – whatever that means to you – violates your innate sense of fairness.

In response, you unconsciously block “too much good” so Divine Order can be maintained – and the blessing vanishes.

We all know how painful that can be!

Would you like to stop doing that now? Self Worth Here and Now

Why is it Hard to Attract Abundance?

When you feel deserving, attracting Abundance gets easier

Grainds of Sand by-evan-kirby-263915Here’s the deal:

You can keep on trying squeeze a few grains of Abundance from the iron grip of a stingy Universe, if you believe that’s what it takes.

But until you feel you deserve to have what you want, you’re going to expend a gigantic amount of energy for teeny-tiny results.

I hate that whole “Tons of Effort for Zero Results” thing. How about you?

You can only experience as much Abundance as you feel worthy of receiving. No more and no less.

The Universe’s allotment of Abundance may seem random, yet it is precise in giving exactly as much as you feel worthy of receiving.

If you want to recognize your true (Infinite!) worth so you can attract more Abundance, you are lovingly invited to join the September Abundance Healing Circle: “Self-Worth Here and Now.

You will walk away from this inspiring and interactive gathering with a firm foundation for:

  • Authentic self-confidence that empowers you to trust yourself to handle the wonderful people and exciting opportunities attracted by the glowing charisma that confidence gives you

Do You Eclipse Your Own Light?

Release unforgiveness from your gravitational field so you can shine

Just as the moon blocks your view of the sun during a solar eclipse, is it possible that dark thoughts about yourself block your ability to see the Light you are?

When you beat up on yourself, it’s because you feel like you are your mistake … your disappointment … your failure to take action … your wrong choice.

However convincing the pain of “I screwed up” may feel, you can never be anything other than Light Itself because that is who you really are.

So if you’ve been eclipsing your Light with blame, shame, accusation, guilt, or unforgiveness of any kind … would you be willing to let go of those heavy energies now, so you can see your True Self more clearly?

If so, please say “Yes” out loud now or in your heart …

And imagine the dark matter you’ve been focusing on begin to dissolve into the Light.

Eclipse by-laura-skinner-348001Sense the Light illuminating every corner of your body … and notice how weightless you feel. How free you feel. How your heart lights up with Love.

Very good. You are amazing!

Know yourself as Light now … and get on with your day, darling.

You are loved.

The #1 Belief Blocking Your Abundance

How worthy do you feel?

Click here to listen to this Abundance Activation.

“If God had wanted me otherwise, he would have created me otherwise” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Do you know the #1 belief that blocks your abundance … wrecks your happiness … and sabotages your success?

The weird thing is that this belief sounds sort of spiritual – like something only decent, moral people would believe.

In fact, it’s a sneaky ego-mind trick to repel the blessings you’ve been yearning for, because if you felt fulfilled the ego-mind would lose its ability to dominate you through anger, fear, or shame.

The #1 abundance-busting belief:

“I don’t deserve it.”

Variations on this theme include:

  • “I’m not worthy”
  • “I haven’t earned it yet”
  • “I’m not smart enough, good enough, or ready enough to accept the blessings I’ve been calling for”

Many spiritually oriented people look upon feelings of unworthiness as proof of higher consciousness that has evolved beyond egotism and arrogance.

Many religious people believe feeling ashamed of yourself keeps you on the path of virtue and therefore makes you a better person.

Consider this

Judging yourself as unworthy implies your Higher Power made a mistake – that you should be different from the way you are.

It suggests a Divinity with any decent standards would reject you, and so you should reject yourself.

Yet, as Goethe reminds us, if God wanted you otherwise, you would have been created otherwise.

You are already worthy. Period.

You are as God made you, my dear. Only the ego-mind would insist you should be better than that.

Feeling worthy reflects your appreciation for the gifts your Higher Power has given you, like a loving heart, keen intelligence, or a healthy body.

High self-worth is a form of Gratitude – one of the most powerful Abundance-attracters in the Universe.

We can start polishing up your self-worth right now, if you wish.

Would you like your Higher Power to:

  • Show you what really makes you worthy, in relation to what you imagined makes your worthy
  • Help any self-hating ancestors in your DNA to make peace with themselves, so they can support you in making peace with your Self
  • Heal the wounds of heart, mind and soul that made you feel unworthy of the blessings you desire
  • Reveal everything you were meant to learn from feeling undeserving, and making it that you have learned it now, from the highest truth
  • How to know you are still you, even though you clearly perceive your worth and value now

Golden Light_dev-benjamin-222588If so, say “Yes” out loud or in your heart … and imagine golden light streaming down upon you.

Now, notice how you feel. Notice what’s different about your life in the coming week – and celebrate it!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to be of service to you today.

Much love and many blessings to you!
