I love this statement, because it made me realize that if I'm living this way,
then I'm already dead, and I just couldn't accept that!
Hooray, I made a big decision! At least for me it was. I decided to let go of one day a week working as a Massage Therapist for somebody else, so I could focus on building my own Massage & Health Coaching Practice. It took me 2 years to make this decision! Why? Because I was fearful about not making money! I had been working 6 days a week working for others and their dreams because I was so afraid to go out and get it for myself! My mind was racing with thoughts of what if's and where is the money gonna come from? I was also scared because in order to get the clients and the money, I would now have to be responsible for making this happen on my own.
With this bad economy, I got into the trap like so many others about lack of money and working in jobs that bring no meaning. I was depressed from living my life just to pay the bills (that I had to finally do some soul searching), and decided it was more important to have a life with meaning than it was to worry about money. So I moved to a smaller apartment, let go of my car and paid off my credit cards. I'm still worried about the money but that's okay, because this is a process. What's important is I'm happier and I get to work on my own business! My energy has shifted and I am making room in my life for my own dreams! I'm worth it, and so are you!!
ON MONEY AND WORTHINESS
Just like everything else, I believe that money is energy. I'm still working this out, so I'm not sure how well it will sound, but I believe there is a connection with our inner Worth and how Money plays out in our lives. When we Value the Worthiness of our dreams, it's because we have an inner feeling of Wealth about us...meaning we believe in ourselves and possibly something greater to make it happen (which takes a lot of inner work). This Worthiness opens us up to something greater than ourselves, until we finally take the steps toward our dreams, and the Universe loves this!
Energy starts shifting because we have put ourselves out there to receive, and suddenly support, people and money start showing up. I know this is deep stuff, but to me is what true Wealth is all about! Each time I have trusted in myself and in something greater, things happen (or as the saying goes, mountains move). It's not always about being wealthy on the outside, but whenever I follow my heart, I am always Wealthy on the inside!
WHERE ARE YOU IN THE SPECTRUM?
Letting go of income for something you can't quite see yet, is not an easy decision. This made me wonder about you? How has, or is money showing up in your life/health at this time? Are you living just to pay the bills? Do you have feelings of depression that you're not listening to? Are you using Food or Alcohol to numb your feelings on this issue?
OR... Do you still have hope? Would you prefer to live Big rather than Small? Do you dream to have something more for your life, but don't know where to start? Are you ready to risk having something greater for yourself?
I may not be a money coach, but I do understand what it's like to live small from feelings of lack in my life, whether it be lack of money or lack of worthiness. I also understand that this lack can be the cause of getting stuck in emotional eating and drinking. That's why it's so important I reach out to you! When we get stuck in emotional eating and drinking, it's usually from something deeper we're unable to look at, and money and worthiness issues could be that deeper issue for you. I've done and continue to do the deeper work, and that's where I can help you! I work with those suffering from emotional eating and drinking!!
There is always hope! Some of the things that help me are Journaling, Self-Compassion, Massage, Clean Eating, and my Health Coach(es). Yes, Coaches need Coaches too.
To get you started on how money and worthiness play out in your life, try journaling. Buy yourself a pretty journal and pen, and give yourself time to write everyday. As you write, notice where your fears around money are stopping you from going for your dreams? Note where SELF-WORTH, VALUE, MONEY & WEALTH are lacking in your life and what you need to do to get these back. Allow whatever comes up to be okay and try to bring to light what's been hidden. The joy at the other end is worth it. Truth is: You can't really bring to life that which is hidden in the dark anyway.
2. Self-Compassion Exercises
Keeping self-compassion and gentleness is very important as you start to face what comes up for you. Here is a link to one of my favorite websites on Self-Compassion. Try these exercises. My favorite is The Self-Compassion/Loving Kindness Meditation. I've been meditating on it everyday and have committed to doing this for 30 days straight.
No matter where you are in the spectrum, be gentle with yourself. We all go back and forth between feelings of worthiness or feelings of lack in our lives. The best way out of this is to be honest with yourself, do the inner work, stop being afraid to feel, and get support. I'd love to see the light of your dreams shine upon you too.
3. Get a Massage
Did you know that the more you give to yourself, the more the Universe gives back? Did you know that getting a massage not only helps with relaxation, chronic and acute pain, and preventing injuries, but it is also one of the most kindest and compassionate things you can do for yourself? It is not selfish, in fact, it is how we start feeling more worthiness in our lives. Nor is it being indulgent, but rather it is a sign of self-care. If you want more worthiness and self-care in your life, then schedule a massage with me.

I made an investment too: Making an Investment, to hire my own Health Coach(es) has really shifted who I am. I have a lot more awareness around the emotional reasons for my drinking and other bad patterns in my life, am making better choices as a result, faced my money fear to let go of a day (so I can market my own Health Coaching Practice), am clearer about my goals, make gratitude and self-compassion a priority in my life, have more time for relaxation, fun and dating, and have a deeper sense of owning my dreams and bringing more meaning into my life!
5. Sign up for my Clean Eating, Pre-Holiday Renewal Cleanse
Not only does Clean Eating help you lose weight, improve digestion, increase energy, and give you glowing skin, but it also releases the toxins caused by poor quality food and too much alcohol. Clean Eating clears your mind of fog and raises your body's vibrations. That's right, just like us, food actually vibrates. When you eat poor quality food, you are lowering your body's vibration and causing poor health. On the other spectrum, when you eat whole foods from nature, you are raising your body's vibration and bringing in good health. As you begin to vibrate at higher levels, life begins to unfold in wonderful ways that cannot happen from consuming too many toxins! If having good health and raising your vibration appeals to you, then check out my Pre-Holiday Clean Eating Program (and the Early Bird rates). It's as easy as 1, 2, 3. Just click here:
I wish you much joy, love, peace and health!
