Have I mastered my Money Mindset

As the name says I am The Law of Attraction Lover and I believe it , love it, use it, get it to work for me but Money or should I say Mega Money … Blaaaaa !!! That’s a discription of my stomach rolling over at the thought of it.

I literally told myself I am never gonna get this one to work out for me Baby

Well that’s a positive affirmation right there – Not !

But a few months ago I told myself I will overcome this one if it …. well you know the phrase.

I have read more books than I can calculate before making the decision to kick this sucker to the curb about money mindset but I knew to cure it I couldn’t stop there.

So I continued reading watching, listening, affing (affirmations if you are new to my blog and not aware of my terminologies)

And gradually I have started to feel the fog start to lift and become more and more comfortable around money but not only have I begun to feel comfortable, I have actually felt happy about it and literally eager to pay bills.

Some of it I have got to myself and some thank you Universe, I have been presented with the right materials at the right time.

What do I mean ages ago? For instance about 2 years just around now I heard of Christie Marie Sheldon and what she calls lofty questions. These were working for me well and I was getting positive results but then I manifested a business. See I told you the Law of Attraction has worked for me but that should all be documented in other posts so I won’t go in to it here.

The business was very busy from the very beginning (grateful) and I lost the luxury of having the time to write out my lofty questions but a few weeks ago I was getting a strong compulsion to restart them again and with 24 hours I started to see results

Around the same time I came across Denise Duffield Thomas and her book “Get Rich, Lucky Bitch” and immediately started implementing some of the suggestions combined with the lofty questions

I started logging money coming in, saving, de-cluttering, ditch the dodgy under-ware (you’ll have to listen/read the book 😉 )

I am aware a big part of attracting what you want is feeling and I am becoming better at taking time to read my feelings and I went I started saving it felt good. I also started seeing and increase in my business when I started logging the money coming in.

What was really liberating when I read “Lucky Bee” was Denise admitted she constantly works on her money blocks and we will always have money blocks to work on. Instead of being depressed at this prospect I thought Yeah, I am not broken

I always thought the reason I was never Mega Money abundant was because I was not cured of my money blocks. “I will never be wealthy”

Now I knew I would never be cleared of them and that’s normal and I will always have to work on them. I’m down with that. I can do the work now I know I always have to. I am a personal development junkie – Bring it on !!

Talking of doing the work Denise advises throw anything at it that feels right for you and it doesn’t have to be one practice over another.

Another positive because if you are told something that says you have to do this or you won’t get A, B, or C and you are not getting results with said practice you are going to feel a failure and negative feelings never get good results.

Probably because what I have digested previously I am not a total Dork around money and do have faith around certain financial topics working out ok. One of those is what instigated this blog post …. but first a couple examples.

I set myself a goal for 2019 but recently I was in two minds should I invest in it or not despite it bringing me at least one step closer to my next big dream so I decided to let it go and trust the Universe to show me the answer

Last Friday when I least expected it a series of events happened and then inspired action made me to do something and then I got my answer … and then some.

The ‘Then Some’ was a link to the very thing I wished to achieve this year. Doing a gut check and reading my feelings (Joy) I did it and it cost a lot less than I anticipated

But as Denise predicted I then I had a Blaaa !! gut role because I potentially have a bill coming up that I don’t know the final cost of however “STOP PRESS” my mind almost a second later formed a lofty question that it was ok because I was going to make the money back today. Motivated by this I thought I won’t stop there. Not only am I going to make this back I am going to double it. Wow, Wow, Wow !! Get me.

Not in a position to write it down I said it over and over in my head promising I would write it down when I got in to my shop.

However the shop was crazy busy and I didn’t get a chance to write my lofty question down

No worries because just by thinking it seemed to do the trick and I did in fact not only make the money back that I spent out but I did double it in takings in my shop.

This made me very excited not to mention happy and I swore from now on when I get a gut a role I am going to focus on my abundance and belief in attracting more than whatever it was I have to pay out.

One habit I have adopted for a while is saying/writing affirmations about gratefully paying for any service or product I desire or require and that I always have enough money for it, as if validation of this and my actions the other day, yesterday while trying to listen to a Podcast that wouldn’t play it instead started playing a podcast by Mindvalley when someone totally new to me Ramit Sethi was being interviewed.

Ramit very early in the podcast spoke of when someone boasts about finding a loophole not to pay for a service etc ie Taxes (bill with the unknown amount awaiting to pay) they are projecting a scarcity mindset. He said if you are in business you have things to pay out, taxes, pay an accountant etc. Get over it.

Because of material digested a long time ago I had shifted my mindset on getting a cleaner, paying someone to cut the grass, do your taxes etc because when you pay them for their services and skill set it frees you up to earn money doing what you are good at to pay them and create an income for them. Win, win so I totally got what Ramit was saying and it took me back to my behaviour and lofty question when I paid for the service this past Saturday morning where I overrode the Blaaa !! feeling with my abundant mindset action and then Ramit said a quote that made me go “I’m having that. That is going in to my journal.

“Abundant People Realise Their Future Is Brighter Than Their Past”    

I said previously that while not being a millionaire (yet) sometimes I can hold a belief something will work out and despite practically having zero in the bank when the subject came up (numerous times) my partner would keep reminding me “You’re going to need money in your account in January you know to pay your tax bill” (Thank you for reminding me Dad – again)

I have a small physical craft business while thankfully popular and keeping me afloat as soon as I build up a bit of money I would need to buy stock and materials so while a looming tax bill would look daunting for some reason I had Faith it would all be alright but I would just acknowledge my partners concerns not wanting to express my belief as he openly admits he doesn’t get my Woo Woo.

Well to make this long story longer Christmas was insane in my business giving me some surplus money that I have been keeping towards my taxes and potentially making everything indeed ok and this morning I got a telephone call from my Accountant asking could I meet to go over a couple things

Despite my belief that everything would be alright as Denise predicted I did gulp down an old money block feeling that wanted to say “Hello”

Right you pesky money block time we tango’d. So I put an alarm on my phone to stop and have lunch while writing lofty questions before the meeting to put me in a better frame of mind and I even used the quote above as I entered the reception (throw anything at it malarky)

Well the news was far better than I antisipated and when it was suggested to pay a contribution to an annual fee that I am not obligated to do in my current position but has productive benefits for me in the long run I found myself saying “Yes” and asking payment methods

I found the new abundant mindset ‘Me’ wanted to pay for the service provided ASAP knowing my future is brighter than my past

I even caught myself smiling as I went back to my shop, thinking well that went well and I actually feel happy.

Hang on, have I finally changed my money mindset

If I can do it, anyone can do it

Be your authentic personal brand

I have been reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s book “Crush It”. I first downloaded his new book “Crushing It”, which I am loving by the way but something made me read the sample of Crush it on Sunday and I wanted to continue so bought the whole book.

Honestly, I was telling myself “No more books !!” And honestly I was a little anxious about finances and fulfilling my obligations in this short month and then honestly I have been working on my mindset regarding my lack mentality so reminded myself, telling myself not to buy the book wasn’t sending the right messages to the Universe about abundance beliefs so a downloading I go.

But the above is just an authentic blurting of the prequel to this post and the source of its inspiration.

So I am sat in my shop. I have set myself up for my day. I have gotten my little craft boxes out that I required for my tasks and I have chosen a podcast to listen to from the “The Science of Happiness” podcast and I start creating a veil for a Bride Duck and then the bliss hit me.

I love anything to do with small, fine detail. I go into my zone working on anything intricate and this combined with the podcast I felt overwhelmed with Gratitude.

How lucky am I to get to do what I love and love what I do … or is it luck?

 

If you have read any of my posts before you may know my favourite quite is –

“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen”

Ralph Waldo Emerson .            

And that I made a goal card inspired by Bob Proctor nearly 2 years ago

(My actual Goal Card which I still read daily)

And now I have a shop where I make bespoke and readymade hand painted wooden ducks to sell either through the shop, online or Facebook (@shabbychicducks) that came about through a Universal effortless alignment of events.

I was reading “Crush It” and Gary discussed your personal brand and your passion and authenticity and are you in a job that doesn’t allow you your personal voice and long before I knew about Gary Vee I had a daily affirmation about being able to in a position where I could be 100% authentic to myself as I found it hard to be employed in roles or personal positions where I couldn’t be authentic and boom here I am sitting being able to be 100% authentic, living my goal card and then it struck me … blog it.

You see my ultimate passion is writing and helping people believe that anything is possible with the ‘Right Thinking’.

Last night I had a thought while reading Gary’s incredible book and then I have this experience and this incredible urge to write about it and that ain’t no accident Baby …. that’s the Universe in action and another goal card coming into physical manifestation.

Remember – Law of Attraction practitioners say “Focus on what you do want, not what you don’t want”

Happy Manifesting Beautiful People x

Thank you Louise Hay for all that you have given me x

I did try to find a blog post I did that included this video to re-share as a tribute to Louise Hay but it doesn’t want to be found so this is a new post and an opportunity to say Good Bye from this earthly plane to a woman that inspired me so much and changed my life for the better.

Louise was my go to lady for so many situations, positive negative (definitely negative), health wise and inspirationally.

I used Louise’s book to help visualising me passing my driving test. I referred to her books when I had pain to establish what it was telling me and the youtube video  belowI listened to over and over again via the youtube app on my phone while I drove to a job I hated to inspire to attract the life I desired but what inspired me the most and kept me going when times were hard was the age Louise was when she started her publishing house because I haven’t reached that age yet so anything is possible for me.

I am grateful that while you are physically gone Dear Louise we have the technology today to access your wisdom anywhere at any time.

I’m puppy (toilet) training ….. Me !!

4577137586_5f4cf7fbd3_z

The other day I was feeling a little off focus, disconnected and I knew I needed to charge my spiritual battery.

With this acknowledgement where do I go? What do I do?

One of the quickest, easiest ways I have found just to start making myself feel better is Pam Grout’s blog. Easily and effortlessly Pam has the ability to remind me how great this Universe is but on this day with at least 3 posts to catch up on, it felt like Pam was posting just for me. These posts were more profound than a quick shot of happy adrenalin.

Sometimes Pam posts examples of the emails she receives from people thanking her and telling her of the amazing things that have happened to them following reading Pam’s books and acting on the advise and one of them made me think that’s the next step to charge this my physical battery …. get some shape action or in other words reread Pam’s books.

In amongst the blogs and what I reread within a few hours I was reminded by Pam that in our human physicality we ALL, regardless of how phenomenal we think someone is who seems to have it all going on get wrapped up in our 5 senses and let doubt, worry and fear grab us by the delicate areas and shake us around.

This is what led me to the place of realising I needing to take things to a higher level. Something happened to me and I let myself become completely overwhelmed by fear.

What I also realised whilst reading Pam was all the magnificent information that I had highlighted and then completely forgot about. Pam said it herself that even she goes all 5 senses now and again and has to keep working daily to put herself first and remind herself of the power we have at our disposal 24/7. She described it like training a puppy not to pee on your slippers. You have to take it outside and show it all the incredible unlimited magnificence of the Universe it has at it’s disposal.

That’s when it struck me. I need daily reminders to go beyond the 5. It’s not a one time underline and forget situation. If I really want to rock my physical world with joy, happiness and abundance and remember the non-physical assistance I (WE ALL) have at our disposal literally every second of our waking and non-waking time space continuum I need to puppy (toilet) train my brain.

I have a digital journal running on an app I use called Evernote that I can access on any device and syncs to all my other devices so at the start of each day I have made a tick list of things I aim to do that day. I know I can be a little control freak on myself and then probably give myself a mental kicking if I feel I have failed to achieve something so I have created a balance for myself buy accepting that I am not going to tick all the boxes in one day so what doesn’t get ticked gets deleted for that day but I still have a track record of what I have achieved that put me and my personal happiness at the top of the tree.

The ticks are things like read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes, listen to a pod cast, meditate, read my goal cards, yoga, write things I am grateful for.

The list is evolving all the time because if I think of something that maybe beneficial but acknowledge I will probably forget to do it I add it to the list. The other evening I watched a Facebook Live with Anita Moorjani and Anita reminded us that the most important purpose in our lives is to love ourselves and when we think of an opportunity we didn’t take etc we probably berate ourselves but we should love ourselves. I had been thinking a lot what if’s recently but because of Anita’s words I have been loving myself. Not a habit I wanted to get out of so on the list it went.

I was listening to a YouTube video the other day with Bob Proctor ‘You Were Born Rich’ number 4 (amazing) where he discussed writing down what you really want and meditating on it and reading it everyday. I am guilty of doing that ages ago and now forgetting where I wrote it so I wrote a new expanded version and placed it at the top of my daily electronic journal and copied and pasted it in to all the other subsequent days for the months and will transfer it when I get to January 2017 which is already made up as it was one of my tasks to do the other day.

If I have something bespoke to do that day that isn’t on the generic tick list I place it under the heading Actions and these actions are in red. When I have achieved the action I change it to black and at the end of the day for what ever reason I couldn’t get it done and it was still red I just cut and paste it for the next day as a reminder.

I may listen to an interesting Podcast hands free whilst driving but not the next day so delete podcast but I may listen to Bob Proctor whilst shaving my legs and getting dressed instead. I most definitely read something inspirational for at least 30 minutes most days and everything seems to have some beneficial takeaway and I have become far more productive and happier and less fearful from my brain Training. I even wrote 2 chapters in a book I have been writing for a while that hasn’t happened in months so I was buzzing.

I could go on forever with all the other things I feel I have learnt or achieved since creating my list but I’m going now to tick ‘Blog Post’ something else I haven’t done in ages until I put it on the list 🙂

The Biology of Belief

unnamed

When I woke up this morning I spotted a post about Noel Edmunds getting back lash about suggesting that negative thinking can create cancer.

I was pleasantly surprised to read the comments under this post were mainly positive and in agreement and if anyone has read or listened to anything by Bruce Lipton or read Anita Moorjani’s book “Dying to be Me” you would totally understand where Noel was coming from.

I’m not sure if it was before or after reading about Noel that I saw the picture above posted by Skye Dyer but later in the day I recalled it and thought it’s contents were relevant to this situation.

As soon as I read it, it reminded me of when I read “21 Days to Master Success and Inner Peace” by Dr Wayne W. Dyer when Wayne suggested ‘Be open to everything’.

It is most likely because I have read and listened to material by Wayne Dyer, Bruce Lipton and Anita Moorjani I am stood in the reality I have created today.

After I had a recent accident I was determined to think positively. It wasn’t until a few weeks later I recalled the thoughts I was having in the hours running up to the accident. I had one working week left before travelling to enjoy a luxury holiday and a joyous event but instead of thinking about this I was feeling overwhelmed by all the things I had to achieve in that working week and the lack of belief that I could achieve it all. I had allowed fear and doubt to occupy my thoughts instead of belief and trust that as always everything would work itself out.

My accident immediately wiped out all the things I was concerned about but it also wiped out the opportunity for something blissful and joyous. I take responsibility for my actions and my thoughts and realise that if I had acknowledged my anxiety I could have changed that chain of thought and none of this would have happened but am proud that I haven’t chosen to adopt the thoughts and opinions related to an accident like mine.

If I had chosen to believe what I have heard, at least I will have to endure severe pain every winter or more severe, crippling arthritis.

I have chosen to believe I am 100% healed and I already have the evidence that is the case.

Initially I as given a diagnosis of being in plaster until mid June with further treatment to be assessed. Last week I had a check up that required my plaster to be removed to have an X-ray to assess how the healing was going. My partner discussed possible outcomes with a member of staff removing my cast and they suggested that if I accept that I may have another cast, on anything else was a bonus but other options were surgical boots etc but quietly in my head I told myself I was already healed as I had said many times previously.

I believed it and already accepted that I will be 100% fully functioning in the future but never being through something like this I had nothing to gage against time wise.

A short time later I was called back in to meet the consultant who showed me my X-rays and told me that my break had completely healed and I could start weight baring immediately as much I could tolerate. So two weeks before I was due out of plaster cast I don’t have as much as a support bandage and today I had my first (and only) physiotherapist appointment. The word ‘exceptional’ was used several times as the Physiotherapist’s body language gave away that they were literally flabbergasted by my flexibility and mobility in my joints. She actually said that she had never had anyone at this stage with this amount of movement and demonstrated with her hand how much movement people normally have which was barely anything. I have received a sheet of 3 exercises to improve to some tightness in my calves and I have been discharged.

Feeling blissful and full of Gratitude I decided to go into the garden, enjoy the sunshine and listen to something on YouTube and as if to reiterate what I, Noel and many others believe the video below was on my recommended list.

It’s not in our gene’s. It is in our thoughts. Anything and Everything.

Happy Song List 17/02/2016

I have to be honest dear friends I really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. Not because I was sad or not wanting to face the day but because it was so cosy and warm and I was saying positive affirmations and Gratitudes while I was laying there and I didn’t want to stop but when I pressed the play button and this beautiful gem started playing it was ok and I floated out of bed.

No. 1 = Louis Armstrong – Wonderful World 

This is a beautiful Video to accompany the song that truly emphasises the meaning. I always loved this song because the most loving peaceful beautiful soul that I have ever met on this planet loved Louis Armstrong and played this to me as a child as well as playing his own trumpet. Unfortunately my uncle developed cancer and was taken far too early. It was my first experience of death but even in death he was gracious and he said with a smile “It’s OK kid, I get to play with Louis now”. 

No. 2 = Shalamar – There it is 

This song makes me feel soooooo young as I recall floating across the dance floor week after week while it was in the charts ‘Pop pickers’ and I might have had a little crush on Jeff Daniels as I watched him float across the floor on Top of The Pop’s. If you think MJ was the king of moonwalking if you have some free time have a quick search for Shalamar on YouTube 😀

No. 3 = Kool & The Gang – Get Down on It

How you gonna do it with your back up against the wall? It’s a bit like life. If you don’t get your back off the wall, take a chance and dance across the floor of life and get down on it how ya gonna know what you can achieve.

Let’s all get down on it today and give life our all while still taking time to see what a wonderful world it is.

Happy Song List 16/02/2016

There’s a little twist to todays list because that’s the way the Universe played it and how the Universe inspired me. Have an awesomely, fantabulous mind-blowing day. I know I will because I am set up now.

No. 1 = Everybody Dance Now – From Evan Almighty

When I was growing up Monty Python was banned from our house because my mum was religious and banned it because of the film ‘Life of Brian’ but I had heard of the Ministry of Silly walks. I have my own secret ministry of silly dances and when I saw the film Evan Almighty and saw  new commandment ‘Thou Shalt do the Dance’ I instantly had a thought. When I return to non-physical and if my loved ones so choose to have some kind of ceremony to send me off my daughters know the plan. Right at the end of the ceremony they have to play C+C Music Factory – Everybody Dance now. It is my wish that all present ‘Thou Shalt do the Dance’.

No. 2 = Now that We Found Love – Heavy D and the Wedding Dance scene from Hitch

Heavy D and of course The Boyz make it law to do the silly dance when I hear this song and it is now law that you also ‘Do the Dance’ when you hear it from this day forward.

No. 3 = Justin Bieber & James Corden’s Post Grammys Drive

I have loved James Corden since I first saw him in a series called ‘Fat Friends’ (2000 – 2005) and I have a very memorable morning after the night before with my best friend sat on the sofa sharing a blanket, bowls of Pom Bears in hand and she asked “Do you watch Gavin & Stacey?”. Several enjoyable hours passed as I caught up with series 1 and ‘A League of their Own’ is one of my favourite programs and I am just filled with more and more joy as I watch his career sore because James is  for me the epitome of how life should be. The more grateful and joyous your are. The more the Universe will give to be grateful and joyous about.

Today your mission if you choose to take it is …………. to find the joy and gratitude in everything that happens then let me know what you were joyous and grateful for.
