True Abundance

True Abundance Blog

It’s simple.

It’s not necessarily easy.

Transformation.

Being able to move from one place to another.

There must be healing.

There must be a rebirth of desire.

Then there must be the words, the language – the ultimate in creation of what is to be –

and in that sense what is already here and available to us in this moment.

PURE.

RADICAL.

TRUE.

ABUNDANCE.

The knowing that all of the Universe is in support – God is in support of every last desire your heart has.

The desires that were born from the Divine.

It still amazes me.

Mostly, because it’s me who still doesn’t see that my desires for abundance is actually already here for us, waiting patiently –

softly nudging us –

to RECEIVE what is rightly ours, every man, woman & child’s birthright – life lived to the full.

So here we are.

So here I am.

With you.

Sitting in this mess.

Make no mistake.

We are all here – because we are all connected.

Something most of the world conveniently forgets, hence why we have labels.

We wouldn’t have labels if everyone could see how connected we really are, and how the pain would subside when we see ourselves in every living thing, how hurting one hurts the whole.

Here’s the part I know so many are still stuck on.

We haven’t figured out how to tell ourselves a new story.

We are stuck in the past.

We are playing our past story – good or bad – on a story loop.

How things should have been, the crap you had to deal with, the loss, the pain, the horror –

Or maybe it was the good’ ol times, the joy, the perfect life you once had –

It is still playing like it’s a new release, front and center, months, even years after it should have been replaced.

It’s such an old story, old movie, that no one even comes to the theater to help you relive it anymore –

sure you may drag in some new attendees every once in a while, but soon enough too they leave,

probably because they are so busy trying to attract people to listen & watch their old story board

or maybe they just get exhausted of watching your movie.

Maybe you are finally starting to get exhausted of your own story you are telling yourself –

The one on how your family is supposed to be like, your relationship is supposed to be like, your body is supposed to be like –

The way your bank account is supposed to be like.

The supposed-to’s are a story of some past programming that needs to be re-told –

TIME FOR THE VHS TO BE EJECTED!

BLOCKBUSTER HAS LEFT THE BUILDING… maybe you didn’t get the memo…

The beautiful thing about this life – the secret – if you will…

Is that at any moment in time everything you desire is available to you.

You can shift your perception of ANYTHING.

You can attract anything you desire to your life.

You can transform your mind instantly.

You can FEEL whatever you want to feel in an instant –

but that choice is up to you.

You can disappear the past in an instant.

Why are you holding on to it so tight?

Was it better back then?

Was it worse back then?

Better question: does it really matter if it was better or worse back then?

You are living like it really does matter.

You can’t do anything about it anyways.

So, why do you let your mind always go there?

I mean, ALWAYS go there?

What you have right here and right now is PRESENT.

The present of being able to transform/shift your feelings and thoughts to the desire of your heart.

You are allowed to do this.

But you are not – and I’m going to guess it’s because somewhere, somehow, someone in your past denied you.

They denied you when you got a chance to be the fullest-expression of yourself.

They denied you when you got a chance to dance with life.

They denied you love, wealth, health, family, friends.

They denied.

But then, again, no one can actually deny anyone of anything.

AHHH, bingo.

You denied yourself.

And my loves, the worst form of betrayal is self-betrayal.

We’ve all done it to ourselves, and that is the hardest to swallow.

We are the ones who allowed ourselves to become disconnected from our true desires.

We berated ourselves, put ourselves down.

It’s so much easier to blame others than to take back what is really something we did to ourselves.

Isn’t it crazy – we are supposed to be all “evolved” and “smart” –

Our phones are smart, so doesn’t that mean we are smarter?

But we sit and bash, say mean things, criticize, hurt ourselves – on repeat.

Why?

Actually, it really doesn’t matter why – as I alluded to in a blog a few weeks ago –

but what does matter now is – what can we do to shift into the place we are called to?

What can we do to heal?

And knowing that when we heal, we end up healing others.

Isn’t that amazing?

When we heal ourselves, we end up inspiring another to heal, to take that step out of the darkness and into the light?

So, it’s like a win-win-win for you, others and the world.

And I don’t know if there is a better way to….

Live Your Legacy.

Insurance.

6 Reasons You Need To Buy Life Insurance

6 Reasons You Need To Buy Life Insurance

Here are 6 reasons I always share with clients why they need to buy life insurance.

Did you know that life insurance pays out tax-free to your beneficiaries usually within 30-60 days upon claim? Did I mention tax-free money to your estate?

1. To Pay Final Expenses

In my opinion, everyone needs to have a small permanent life insurance policy to cover off final expenses.  These expenses can run from $5,000 to $25,000 or more. Besides burial or cremation costs, there are also final tax returns and legal obligations or probate or tax owing that are required to close your estate. Here’s the thing, don’t be a burden to your family or friends – consider having a small paid up whole life or universal life or Term100 that will pay out tax free to your chosen beneficiaries to help ease the immediate burden of final expenses.

2. To Cover Children’s Expenses

If you have children under age 18, I firmly believe it is your responsibility to help provide for those children if you were to pass away prematurely. This is something I’m very passionate about because it’s so inexpensive for people of child-rearing ages to afford a decent sized life insurance policy of even $500,000 to $1,000,000 at minimum. Everyone knows a million dollars doesn’t go far these days, not to mention if you want to help contribute to your child’s secondary education costs, then you will really need to take a good hard look at getting the proper amount of life insurance.

3. To Replace Your Partner’s Income

If you depend on your partners income to run your lifestyle and housing costs, then this is a no brainer, obviously if you didn’t have insurance and your partner passes away you may be forced to radically change your lifestyle. The question becomes, is this something you are willing to do during the hardest days of your life? Any amount of life insurance will help ease this burden so you aren’t forced into making rash decisions at inopportune times.

4. To Pay Off Debts

Like I said about the insurance for your children, I also will say that it is your responsibility to cover your debts in the event of your passing. You were the one who made the decision to take on the debt in the first place, don’t you think that you should also not leave that debt to your loved ones to deal with your messes? Time to ADULT now and make sure you have proper coverage to handle all your debts, from mortgage to credit cards to car loans to business agreements.

5. To Cover Business Expenses

Buying life insurance to cover Key Employees or to fund a buy/sell agreement or just to cover outstanding debts in the business, it is so important to look at life insurance for your business. Make sure to talk to a CFP to make sure all the angles of your business are covered.

6. To Pay Off Estate Taxes

Although Canada doesn’t have estate taxes per se, they do have probate fees and final taxes on deemed dispositions of assets on the date of your death. This can be a massive blow to your estate. For example, a million dollars in RRSPs would be worth $600,000 or less after all the taxes are paid on your final tax return. That’s a huge win for the government and a huge loss for your family. This is where permanent insurance is important, such as whole life or universal life or Term100. Probate fees are minimal in some provinces, but in other provinces can be very costly.

 

Okay, now ask yourself if you have enough or you have enough on your partner.

Let me ask you this, in your darkest of days – losing your best friend, lover, partner – do you want to be financially stressed on top of your loss? OR, on that note, if he’s a schmuck who owes you money and never pays up on time, wouldn’t it be better to have a policy in place to make sure you get what is contractually yours in the case he dies and leaves you high and dry raising kids… just more food for thought… cause you will curse his name for getting off scot-free one last time! 🙂

Either way, I’m happy to get you a quote or put you in touch with someone in your jurisdiction who can help you get some proper risk management and life insurance in place! Don’t wait… I will write another blog on the people who came to me and said they wished they had put some life insurance in place before their partner passed unexpectedly.

Grim, I know. Real Life – Yes, unfortunately.

Bottom Line: You’re still gonna need money, honey.

Kicking Your Money Blocks To The Curb

Kicking Your Money Blocks To The Curb

Here are 2 more money blocks I just kicked to the curb.

#1: PERFECTION

Although I’ve been defiantly breaking through this over the last 6 years and I realized that I am way too hard on myself when I’m not doing everything up to my perfect standards when it comes to running my business, and that totally throws me. (I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to many areas of my life – FYI – just my business {oh, and my car, kitchen counters, closets, yikes!} – mostly cause I’ve been beaten with a compliance stick for the last 18-years and I swear this is where it comes from, that and I’m a first born.)

HEAR ME OUT: My perfectionism is holding me back because you can’t hold the belief that you want to make MILLIONS while serving the god of perfectionism – cause nothing is perfect and ain’t gonna be.

You will never get paid more than you think you are worth, and if I keep holding out that everything must be “perfect”  (and in my case, mostly paperwork!) – which I will inevitably fail at EVERY TIME and hence, make it mean, I’m not good enough, and my business isn’t at that perfect place where it can break through to the next level or the my business isn’t in a place where I deserve to make the money I know I’m worth until I let go of the need to be perfect.

You’ll never make more money than what you are making now because it’s not safe to and your subconscious thoughts on your business are anchored in at not being good enough or not ready enough – yet, will override the breaking through to the next level every time – whatever that is for you.

BOOM!

If you have that money block, break that one down if you are serious about helping more people. (PS. This same block goes for relationships & health!)

#2: RECEIVING

I’ve been working on this one for years as well, consciously! And even then, as with all our stuff, there is another layer – like the onion, always more to peel back and look into.

When I do my talks, I always say that if you are unable to even receive a compliment you are probably going to have a hard time receiving any amount of money.

Here’s another level to receiving that I just realized has been holding me back.

The need to be independent, not being a burden to others, not being needy!

The independent woman vibe – ya, this is what I’m talking about. {Cue: Destiny’s Child}

It’s not bad to be independent and not really need anyone or anything, however, it does interfere with you receiving money and lots of it!

HEAR ME OUT: You can’t hold both the independent woman vibe and allow your community, clients, family, etc. to support you. These beliefs cancel each other out – and hence why you aren’t receiving the money the way you desire!

Most of us have really prided ourselves on being independent and to many of us, that belief is HARD-WIRED into our brains and is stronger than the need to receive on ALL levels (money, love, health) and great as that is, take a good look if that’s something that’s holding you back.

What are the judgments you have on other people who are fully supported by others financially (even government assistance, spoiled-rich kids, etc.)? What are your judgments on other who are fully supported with their health, body or in their love life by others?

And there it is.

{Mic Drop}

The block on receiving.

Allowing others to help you or support you does not mean that you are weak.

Plus, you become a joy robber if you take away someone else’s joy of giving to you!

You can’t hold both an independent, do-it-ALL-yourself vibe while expecting to receive the abundance you are called to receive.

We receive through asking.

You can accomplish all your goals by asking, and that won’t diminish your independent creative spirit AT ALL!

If you have that money block, do the inner work to break down that block, start allowing people to help you and learn how to receive that abundance.

On the note of money blocks, or any area in your life you feel stagnant or blocked, remember that if there is duplicity in your energy or mind you will not be able to step into what you desire, you will not be able to attract it.

No matter where you are in your life right now you have an energy minimum (the lowest amount of money or standard of living you will not go below – no matter what, cash flow minimums, debt minimums, income minimums, etc. ) and an energy maximum (the most amount of money you are allowed to have before it feels unsafe or uncomfortable for you to have more money than that).

Everyone has a range.

Everyone has a new level they can go to.

Staying in this range is fine.

It’s always your choice.

However, you need to be aware of it and if you so desire to go out and break through the energy maximum you’ve created for yourself, you’re gonna have to do the work to get there.

End of story.

There’s a reason you created your safe bubble of your minimum and maximum in the first place.

If you want to get to the next level in your life, love, health, money – you will need to shift your range.

Create new standards of minimum for yourself.

Expand exponentially to a new maximum and allow yourself to receive the desires of your heart.

Don’t forget you are supported by God in ALL of this, in ALL of your being.

When you have the universe at your back, anything can happen, anything is possible.

When you break through these beliefs and money blocks you open yourself up to…

Live Your Legacy.

Stop Asking Why

Stop Asking Why Blog

I listen, read, watch, CONSUME a lot of content on self-help and business.

I’m mean, let’s be serious for a second – my dad made us listen to “MEGA MEMORY” cassette course on a road trip to Idaho when I was 13.

When I was 18, I remember driving my super hot red Honda Prelude with the sunroof open, shifting gears, listening to Anthony Robbins and Zig Ziglar on cassette, while all my friends listened to top 40. (I don’t like top 40 – or for that matter – what everyone else is doing! I always found being a follower of crowds was boring.)

So, I’m no stranger to this realm of self-help, psychology or business.

This week-end I had a crazy A-HA download on the topic of all of this.

Here’s the thing.

The week before last, I could barely get out of bed I was so depressed, stuck in a rut, and questioning everything.

Situational depression (not clinical depression – big difference!)

This happens often to me – a least one day of every month and a few times a year it will last a few days.

I’m okay to sit with it and hide out while it’s happening.

I also know how to deal, cope and use tools to help me get out of it, and I also can identify when my pity party has been enough.

When I get stuck in a rut, or situational depression, I’ve realized that I dwell on this one thing (and ought not too!) and that one thing is:

WHY

These are some of the things that go through our heads at some point in time, I’m sure we’ve all wondered these same things:

  • Why is this happening to me?
  • Why does life suck?
  • Why is it happening for everyone else and not me?
  • Why does this always happen to me?
  • Why is the sky blue?
  • Why are my kids so annoying today?
  • Why am I sick?
  • Why do I have no money?
  • Why do I have no relationship / crappy relationship?
  • Why can’t I lose weight?
  • Why is my car so old?
  • Why is my house so small?
  • Why am I not where I wanted to be by now in my life?

WHY WHY WHY

And then we are down the rabbit hole.

Stuck in the not so great vortex of crap.

There are entire companies, causes, and professions where their whole goal is to figure out WHY.

I’m going to go out today, right now, right here and say this about WHY  – for you personally.

ASKING WHY is not helpful.

ASKING WHY does not solve problems.

ASKING WHY leaves you stuck in the PAST.

Here’s the secret to working through situational depression or the real shitty times in our lives.

STOP ASKING WHY.

The WHY is not going to serve you going forward.

The only question to ask yourself as you move through a challenging season of your life is this word:

WHAT

What can I do to help?

What do I want to create in my life?

What is next for me?

What is one way this situation can bear fruit in the world?

Fruit – for those that don’t know what that is – is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

This fruit – that’s the stuff we are here to create in this world.

And let me tell you what happens when I get stuck in WHY.

I don’t bear any fruit in my life.

The second I can switch to WHAT.

That’s when my magic happens.

That’s when stuff gets done.

WHY IS MY HOUSE SO MESSY? – this leads into a raging fit of cleaning in anger at everyone who left a mess.

What can I do to love my space? – this leads to calm enjoyable cleaning.

Okay, so here’s where I got a little confused when I was thinking about the word WHY.

As an entrepreneur, you are taught to figure out your why.

Dig deep and figure out the WHY of your life/business – a WHY so big that it will pull you through anything.

Figuring out your WHY is different than asking WHY.

(Simon Sinek’s big TED talk/book – Start With Why is fabulous and all about figuring out your WHY, in case you missed it.)

Asking WHY will not get you results.

Asking WHY will keep you stuck.

Asking WHY will hold you down.

Asking WHY will keep you comatose on a bed full of LAYS crumbs and with an empty bottle of Pinot on your bedside watching SCANDAL re-runs.

(Keep in mind WHY is usually only asked when frustrated or correlated to a negative emotion – for example, usually one does not ask: Why is my life so amazing? or Why do I have tons of money? Great questions, but not where the average mind goes.)

Knowing your WHY will steer you right on your path to creating the life you want.

Here’s a quoteable/tweetable/memeable you can quote me on:

Knowing your WHY is different than asking WHY. – Lisa Elle

Here’s the thing that you can’t do anything about:

YOUR PAST

So STOP making your past mean something about you.

So what, you screwed up?

You messed it all up?

You have no money, no love, no relationships, no sexy hot body, not where you want to be?

SO WHAT?!

You get to take hold of the power now and go forth and create something amazing with your life.

You still have 100% of life left to live.

And tomorrow you will still have 100% of life left to live.

So my humans, my amazing loving humans:

Stop asking WHY.

Know your WHY.

And when you know your WHY, that’s when you…

Live Your Legacy!

xx Lisa

Sweet Beliefs

Sweet Beliefs Blog

The most powerful thing in the world.

Belief.

YOUR BELIEFS!

Beliefs are really just thoughts you think over and over again.

Now let’s talk truth.

Everyone seems to think there is one truth.

Maybe there is – and maybe there isn’t – universally speaking…

But I can tell you this.

The person who BELIEVES her truth the strongest – right down to her core – will create just that.

Truth is subjective to what you believe.

At the end of the day – you need to know that there isn’t one truth…

AND

The only truth you need to know is the truth that you believe –

Better yet…

The only beliefs you need to hold are the truths that are going to serve you in this life.

You’ve been going along all this time with some crazy belief that to be a “good person” you need to be a martyr.

Sacrifice. Sacrifice. Sacrifice.

To make money you need to work hard.

That it’s ALL an uphill battle.

None of this is true AND all of this is true if you believe it to be so.

Doesn’t that just blow your mind.

Because here is the only truth on this topic —>

Listen up!!

you can think something is easy – and it will be so

you can think something is hard – and it will be so

What you think is what will be, and what will be will be your truth.

I think this is what so many people don’t get. They still really believe there is only one truth.

The truth of the matter is this:

Person A believes life is easy & fun.

Person B believes life is hard.

They are both right.

The beautiful thing about our world is that you can be right and they can be right.

It still shocks me at how many people think there is only one truth.

If truth is from your beliefs and beliefs are just the thoughts floating around your head, things you’ve been told every day since you were a baby, do you honestly think that your truth is better than another’s truth?

Here’s the kicker.

In life – you have to analyze your beliefs.

You have to!

You have to make sure you choose the beliefs that serves you.

(Not your partner’s beliefs, parent’s beliefs, social media guru’s beliefs, salesy salesman’s beliefs, boss’s beliefs, bff’s beliefs, etc.)

I have many beliefs I’m in the process of shedding.

My list goes something like this:

  • I have to work hard in order to make money
  • My business is so hard
  • Everyone has more luck than I do
  • Social Media is too busy, I’ll never be seen
  • My marketing strategy will never work
  • I seem to never have time for anything

Do you hold some of those beliefs?

Are they working for ya?

I do actually have an abundance of time – that’s a belief I changed a while ago and it really did allow me to create all that I do in any given week – and even give me a day of rest!

But I used to believe I had no time, and that belief did not serve me.

I used to say things like “I’m so busy.”

It kept me late for everything, never finishing projects, never being able to do what I want..

I switched that belief to Einstein time.

(It’s a real thing….I’ll let you google it.)

So, I hold out that I have time in abundance, and I seriously create that in my life!

Everything fits in – in perfect time.

Crazy huh!

When our beliefs become our truths they are so strong that we manifest them into reality.

So, if you really realize how powerful the beliefs you hold are, why don’t you choose the beliefs that will rock your world:

  • work is fun
  • work is easy
  • making money is fun
  • making money is easy
  • I attract new clients with ease
  • I love meeting new soulmate clients
  • saving/investing money is easy & fun
  • etc.

The trick here, as with all law of attraction, is that you do really need to believe this stuff – to the point where there can be no other way.

To the point where you are not available for there to be any other way.

Decide and commit.

This is the only way.

There is no other way.

You can’t be shaken in your beliefs.

If you are, they are not your truths….yet.

Your job is to get to the place where you can’t be shaken.

Where you would stake your life on your beliefs.

Where you know without a shadow of a doubt that this holds true for you.

And then it will manifest for you.

But not until then.

Oh loves, do you get this?

You get to choose all the sweetest things life has to offer.

It doesn’t have to be hard.

It shouldn’t be.

Life is hard enough without our beliefs to get in the way and make life harder for us.

Life should be sweet.

You get to choose new sweet beliefs.

And when you choose new beliefs that’s when you…..

Live Your Legacy!

Start at 1

Start At 1 Blog

Everything starts at one.

It becomes two.

Then four.

Then one day…

a million

a billion.

But everything starts at one.

My dear friend and one of the most inspirational women in my life held a run for charity this past weekend.

It was supposed to be warm, but it was cold.

Hundreds/Thousands were supposed to be there, but they weren’t.

She told me it was her dream.

As we ran the last leg of the race, she told me we will remind each other of this race when our companies are worth millions upon billions.

That we were the ones that showed up – even when no one was around, no one was watching.

She will keep going. She will hold more races, grow her amazing company – ultimately she’s a force that cannot be reckoned with.

She has a dream, a vision.

So do I.

They both started with one.

Everything in life you are wanting will compound if you hold your vision before you.

If you keep trusting.

And it’s so hard….

I mean every week, every day plugging away at what feels unfruitful at best ….

I’ve done this religiously, persistently, consistently for a few years now –

5 years of the writing thing

(this is blog #171 btw)

18 years of the financial planning thing

and

it’s not where I want it to be.

Some people think I’m successful.

Some people think I’m not.

But all the opinions in the world, good or bad, mean nothing compared to what I think I am.

And so many times – sooooo many times – I feel like a failure.

It’s inevitable.

All it takes is one little gremlin thought.

One tiny cute Mogwai thought disguising itself as something positive, but really it shows it’s colors after midnight.

30 seconds later you are well on your to your own personal hell-in-a-handbasket.

That’s how quickly our brains take over and downward spiral.

That’s how quickly anxiety and depression and all the not-helpful feelings can rush over you.

That’s all it takes for you to give up, quit, throw in the towel.

But you somehow find the way to get back to a good-feeling.

You do what you need to do.

You get to 171.

171 is not significant by the way.

Neither was 67, 23, or 143.

They are the art, the work, the consistency, the showing-up.

There is one number that I would say was the most important one of all my blogs.

It’s probably the worst one.

It’s probably the shortest, smallest, out-of-date, out-of-style.

It’s probably riddled with mistakes and errors.

But it’s still the most important one.

It’s 1.

It’s ONE.

It’s always number one.

The first one.

The first one that showed the world, the universe, that you are taking this seriously enough to take the first step.

You show up for number 1.

#1 wouldn’t be there without you.

Your first chapter. Your first canvas. Your first film. Your first race. Your first trade. Your first dollar earned. Your first step.

The first dollar in your account.

It’s the most important because that’s where you start.

You get to start at 1.

Then you build.

Then you put your head down, do the work and build the MF thing you came here to build.

And you keep going – even when no one is cheering you on.

ALL GREAT THINGS STARTED AT ONE!

One needs to happen before there can be a two.

I was contemplating my blog last week on finishing.

You will never finish unless you have a clear vision before you of what you are here to finish.

That’s why most people never finish. That’s why they give up.

They don’t have faith that there’s a finish line. They don’t have faith to keep going.

My friend said that to me as we were running the last k.

She said, “Don’t worry, the finish line is behind those trees, even though you can’t see it.”

I took her word on faith.

The damn finish line better have been behind those trees because I couldn’t see it.

I chose to keep running.

I had faith that the finish line is actually somewhere. Faith in things that you can’t see but trust and believe are there (hence the definition of faith…)

You don’t need to physically see the finish line, but you do need to see it in your head. You need to feel that feeling of finishing the race.

I feel like this is part 2 of what I talked about last week.

Finishing feels so good.

So does starting!

It’s usually the in-between that’s hard.

Don’t forget. Every Billion Dollar Bank Account Started with a $1. – Lisa Elle

What are you here to start and finish?

Do you know?

If you don’t – keep working on getting clarity around that vision. (PS. That’s the hardest work ever!)

And then go out, do it and you will create the most wonderful feeling of being proud of yourself.

Never underestimate the feeling of being proud of yourself.

People sometimes ask me how I do all that I do.

It’s because I use the feeling of being proud of myself to move me forward.

It feels so good to feel that way.

I want to do things I’m proud of.

So do something you are proud of.

When you do something you are proud of, that’s when you…..

Live Your Legacy.

Finish

Finish Blog

This is what you need to remember.

You.

The high achiever.

The big dreamer.

The goal setter.

The person who is going to change, inspire, transform, ignite – THE WORLD.

Keep your head down. (Do the work.)

Stay in your lane. (Don’t compare.)

Be your own cheerleader. (Don’t wait for applause from the rest of the world.)

Quietly.

Consistently.

Persistently.

Do what you have set out to do.

Go above and beyond when no one is looking.

The world only cares for a second.

You need to keep caring, keep pursuing those things which you value.

You have to dig deeper.

You have to go to the place many won’t.

The place where it may be scary.

The place where it may be lonely.

The place where people may make fun, harass, think you are off your rocker!

That’s the place where the magic happens.

And then one day, probably about 10,000 hours later, you will find you actually accomplished something many won’t even try to.

You will blow your own mind.

So, just keep running your race.

Stick with it.

It’s never crowded near the finish line.  – Lisa Elle

If you ever ran a race you will know that.

Most people give up LONG before the race even starts.

Most people don’t even START!

Don’t be that person.

Be the person who finishes.

Timing doesn’t matter! (Trust me – that from the world’s slowest runner!)

When you finish something:

  • that’s when you stand in your power
  • that’s when you make the difference in someone’s life
  • that’s when you create results
  • that’s when you blow your own damn mind

and

that’s when you….

Live Your Legacy.

Allowing

Allow Blog

There’s something you have blocked.

It’s most likely whatever you are struggling with right now:

LOVE, HEALTH, WEALTH

It’s always one of those 3 things.

There’s something you aren’t allowing into your life right now.

When it comes to our past, the “WHY” can sometimes be helpful, but usually it doesn’t matter.

I mean, let’s face it, meaning is always only the meaning you give to it anyways, right?!

The meaning you gave to your past (good, bad or ugly) is still just meaning that you put on it.

The world seems to be so interested in the WHY & WHAT HAPPENED.

That’s the gossip of the world. Where would the nightly news be with out that?!

  • Why are you acting that way?
  • Why are you like that?
  • What happened in your past to make you like this?
  • What can we blame from your past?

Let’s be honest.

This is how the world seems to work.

We are so concerned about the past that we lose all sight of what we can create in the future.

We are so stuck in the past that we can’t forgive, heal and go out and be powerful creators of the things we so desperately want.

You can’t powerfully create your dream life when you are stuck analyzing and picking apart the past and try to find the reason why you are the way you are.

Why not just accept your past as what helped you become who you are – a beautiful light in this world!

Let your past be a circumstance that doesn’t define who you are.

Take the emotion out of the past and put it into the future you are working toward.

YOU GET TO CREATE WHO YOU ARE.

There is no victim-hood when you choose live in the present creating your future deliberately.

There is no power when you choose to live in this moment with your brain stuck focusing on the past.

Good, bad, or ugly past – again – doesn’t matter. There’s no power in the past.

There’s power in the now.

In taking the now and using it to benefit your future self.

What are you not allowing into your life right now?

Could it be because you are still stuck in the past? In how things should’ve been?

As you’ve heard before, there’s no point in “shoulding” all over yourself!

Take stock where you are.

No need to dwell on the past.

Seriously.

No NEED!

The past was only there to serve you in helping you decipher what you do want and what you don’t want.

Somewhere along the line we decided we need to go into our past to uncover what happened, why we act the way we do, what lead to that so we don’t do it again. There’s a whole field of study called “psychology” – fascinating and relevant, however….

I’m always surprised at how many people still haven’t clued into that if you really want to turn your life around you can’t be focused on your past. It’s not helpful.

It’s law of attraction 101.

You are staying pointed in the wrong direction when you dissect your past.

So many people are stuck there.

What’s helpful?

Creating a clear picture of your future and your core desires that were placed on your heart.

Most people can’t create because they haven’t exercised the imagination to dream big dreams for themselves.

They haven’t created the inner cheerleader that only you can create.

Remember, it’s not the world’s responsibility to cheer you on.

Sure, there will be people that come along to cheer you on, but that’s a bonus.

It’s not their job.

It’s yours.

Getting clear on you life’s goals and purpose.

Your job.

Positive self-talk.

Your job.

Motivation.

Your job.

Doing the work, the art, taking the chances.

Your job.

No one can do this for you.

You have to be the one who ALLOWS this life force to move through you.

If you haven’t figured our your goals, what you are building or aiming toward in your life, what you want to create – then it’s no doubt that you have blocks.

You have stopped the flow of energy by not being crystal clear in what you want.

When you begin to believe that you are able to create the life you want to live, something magical happens.

Providence moves like a mighty ocean when you commit to what you are creating.

Magic will dance you along in all your goals when you create and commit to your beautiful future.

Energy stops moving when it’s stuck focused on the past.

Stagnant.

Death.

And it festers inside of you.

Wreaking all sorts of havoc on all parts of your life.

This is where choosing forgiveness – not just for others, but mostly for yourself is so important.

Love cures all things.

But let me remind you that it is probably YOU that you forgot to love.

It’s you who created the thoughts, feelings and perpetuated habits to get you where you are today.

That’s maybe the bad news.

But there’s hope.

There’s good news.

In fact, there is GREAT news:

You can put the past aside and ALLOW into your life every desire you ever desired for yourself.

LOVE, HEALTH, & WEALTH.

Maybe it’s one, maybe it’s all 3.

But whatever it is, your deep knowing, your soul knows it is possible.

I mean, we have proof of people actually living on the planet that have gone before us to show us it’s possible.

It’s just waiting for you to claim it.

And claiming it is as simple as choosing to allow it.

Choosing to believe it IS happening to you and for you and with DIVINE BLESSING.

There’s magic in seeing yourself as you can be, not as you were.

You start loving yourself by showing yourself grace.

Unload PILES of grace on yourself, and ALLOW in all the abundance you deserve.

Cause that’s how you….

Live Your Legacy!

Stay In Your Lane

Stay In Your Lane

I’ve always colored out of the lines.

Okay, so you can probably guess that I was not born a coloring kindergarten prodigy.

Driving, for me, is the same as coloring.

I drive out of the lines, sometimes.

When no one is around, I sometimes cross the line.

Meh, let’s be honest, in life I sometimes cross the line.

Here’s what happens when you don’t stay in your lane:

You have a greater chance of getting HIT and thrown off course!

I’m sure you can already guess where I’m going with this metaphor.

Old Adage: STAY IN YOUR LANE.

or in Fred Flintstone’s time, run in your lane.

Either way.

What does that even mean?

And for gumption’s sake why does that even matter?

Staying in your own lane means to literally keep your eye on your life, no one else’s.

So much easier said than done.

We end up in other’s lanes when we:

  • worry about them (not helpful for them or for you)
  • care more about what they are doing than what we are
  • focus our precious energy on what they have that we don’t
  • try to change other people
  • try to get people to think the way we think (cause we are always right – don’t you know!)
  • gossip
  • get envious over their lifestyle, money, relationships, body, skin, shoes, etc.
  • focus on things we can’t control
  • try any form of manipulation

Staying focused and eyes on your lane means that you don’t worry about other people, or anything for that matter.

This also does not mean that you don’t care.

You can actually help more people by helping yourself.

Don’t forget that!

I preach (and I mean I preach this baby!) that you HAVE to put yourself first if you ever want to make a drop of difference in the world.

You have to get connected to your higher self in order to be a deliberate creator.

The times you do swerve into other’s lanes don’t you find that your life falls apart?

It makes sense.

You go from being focused on the things you can control (like creating your life, standing in your power) to now being focused on something or someone you have no control over (like bitching about the government – among other things people bitch about…)

What if you could have a deep trust that all things ‘happening’ around you and to you are all for your highest good?

What would happen if you really REALLY stayed in your lane?

People will come along and judge you, hurt you, mess you up, write you bad reviews, think you suck, and as you may put it – become toxic to your life.

Wanna know what’s crazy?

I dare you to hold a new belief that there are no toxic people in the world.

Follow me here for a minute.

What if….

What if you had belief that said that people are people and that the circumstances (the actions and things that occurred or are occurring) that you experienced were all for your highest good.

What if you really REALLY held that belief out?

What if you tried it on for size and what if you found out that you really liked it?

I’m going to tell you a secret that changed my life right now.

I realized in 2014 that there are no toxic people on the planet.

I realized there are no bad people on the planet.

It changed my life.

Why?

Because I learned that unlimited amounts of compassion flow from you when you choose to TRUST that everything EVERYTHING is perfect and as it should be and that EVERYTHING happening to you right now is for your highest good.

ALL OF IT.

What if you truly TRUSTED and believed and have solid faith in that belief?

Where would you be?

I literally write out everyday this powerful simple statement.

I AM LOVE.

It’s the first affirmation I journal, every morning! I wake up and say these words in my head to myself.

And if you are LOVE you can’t be anything BUT LOVE.

Sure, I stumble and MANY times become not love (like when I yell at my kids – which only happened once…. in the last minute! Can one yell out of love? ;0 )

BUT when you are LOVE, connected to the almighty source of where that unlimited unending source of love comes from, you can’t run out of it. There is more and more and a river of abundance that pours out of you.

(Side note: Just because I don’t believe in bad people or toxic people, doesn’t mean I’m indifferent to the horrible circumstances and actions some people choose to take, nor does it mean that I don’t believe there are consequences for your actions!)

The magical thing that happens when you let go of thinking that people in your life are toxic is that you get YOU back!

You get YOUR life back.

You get to FREE yourself from the miserable thoughts you were thinking about all these bad people in your life.

You get to show up as LOVE.

And when you start showing up in your life as LOVE, your world transforms right before your eyes.

People start showing up to you differently.

Forgiveness and understanding and compassion flow in the most miraculous way.

It’s the miracle.

The change in perception. (I talked about miracles last week, you can read that here.)

This is where you get to shine.

This is where you GET to take on the wonderful responsibility of being a LEADER and actually leading.

  • Do you think you’re gonna be a leader if you don’t know how to stay in your own lane?
  • Do you think you get to change the world when you are focused on what everybody else is doing?
  • Do you think you get to stand in your power, live a fulfilling dream life when you are so concerned about what is happening over there in the other lane?
  • Do you realize how NOT staying in your own lane only ends up hindering you?

Staying in your own lane also means you aren’t getting swept up into OPO’s (other people’s opinions), OPC’s (other people’s confusion), other people’s intent or influence.

Oh, and FYI – when it comes to building wealth & making tons of money – you can’t do that if you aren’t in your own lane. It’s practically impossible when you are focused on the stuff outside of your lane. Not to mention trying to keep up with the rest of the world.

Let them learn their lessons.

Their lessons are not for you to learn – you have your own.

Realize the POWER you have when you DELIBERATELY set out with intention to put a smile on your face, have a great compassion for the people around you who haven’t realized the magic that you already know – that you create your life, you create your lane.

Cause when you create your life you….

Live Your Legacy!
