You were created to be a bright, brilliant, fully alive and unique expression of the Divine. You were created ON purpose, WITH a purpose.
And that purpose is NOT to spend your life worrying about money – not the making of it, the spending of it or the saving of it. You were created for much more than “making a living”. Your life is meant to be a lot more than what you are living right now.
I know you know this – in your head. But it’s one thing to “know” something and another to LIVE it.
It is time for you to start living the TRUTH of who you are.
Deep down, that’s what you really want. I know it and you know it.
I also know you think that MONEY is what is limiting or stopping you – that money is the problem (or even the enemy!). It’s simply not true.
It’s not MONEY that is blocking you. It’s FEAR.
Fear of what others will think. Fear of not being good enough. Fear of being a disappointment. Fear of being judged. Fear of not being loved and accepted.
And, of course, there’s the ever-present fear of not having enough money.
You are constantly working, driving, striving, obtaining, pushing, putting the pressure on. Until, exhausted, you collapse. You let yourself rest and relax only when you NEED to – or to “check out” and avoid, hide and deny what’s really going on.
Yet no matter what you do, no matter how hard you work, no matter what you have, it’s still not enough – especially with money.
Life is not meant to be this hard, my friend. Here’s what I see (and wish) for you instead…
- I see you relaxed and free.
- I see you bold and bright and powerful.
- I see you loved and loving.
- I see you overflowing with joy.
- I see many lives being blessed by you.
- And I see YOU being richly blessed in all ways – including with money.
Which is why I’m calling you out…
It is time for you to stop using money to keep yourself small.
Because the One who created you wants you to be SO big. The One who created you wants to create good things FOR you and WITH you and THROUGH you. And that includes money.
Deep inside, you know that what I’m saying is true.
You believe in a God that is loving and abundant – although you may prefer using different names like Spirit, Universe, Source. You were probably raised in one of the many Christian religions – even if today you consider yourself to be more “spiritual” than “religious”. You also believe that this God wants you to experience abundance and ENJOY life.
Are you with me?
Of course, it’s one thing to SAY that you believe all of this and it’s another thing to LIVE like you do.
Because to do that, you have to be able to TRUST. You have to be able to trust yourself and others. Most of all, you need to be able to trust God – including with money.
You may SAY you trust God. I’m clear that you WANT to trust God.
But when the checkbook balance plummets or when you think of following your dream, not knowing where the money will come from, then what happens????
I know it’s not easy to hear or admit that you don’t trust God as much you’d like – not when it comes to money.
You live like MONEY is the source of your security and safety. Far too often, you’re more worried about being safe than being FULLY ALIVE.
And I know this because I’m describing how I’ve lived most of my life. Like me, you like to be in CONTROL.
You like to handle things on your own – thinking you’re the only one who can do it “right” or “you got yourself into this mess and you have to get yourself out.” Even deeper, there’s something about you (and your finances) you don’t want others to know about. You don’t want to worry them. You don’t want to disappoint them. You don’t want them to judge you or reject you.
And that, my friend, is YOU living in fear and scarcity – as well as guilt, shame and hiding. It is you being LESS than who you were created to be.
If this was someone you loved, I know you would NOT want them to live with this fear and pressure, shame and hiding, deprivation and struggle. You wouldn’t want them to live with this sense of not having enough or not being enough.
So YOU shouldn’t either. I’m telling you it’s time for you to STOP. But I’m not the only one…
You see, my friend, The One who created you LOVES you and does not want you to keep living this way either. This God wants you to be the fullest expression of who you were created to be – a unique and beautiful expression of the Divine. This God wants to work FOR you and THROUGH you. And this God, who is the Source of All, will provide all that you need – including money.
It is time for you to TRUST this Truth. .
It is time for you stop FIGHTING scarcity and, instead, SURRENDER to Abundance.
I know, I know – a part of you fights the idea of surrendering tooth and nail. It is the LAST thing you want to do. It feels like giving up, quitting, settling. It feels like admitting defeat. Scarier yet, it feels like giving up control!
But if you’re honest with yourself, you know that all of your efforts to make things happen, to handle things, to be safe and to control things haven’t REALLY worked. You’re not happy – at least not as happy as you want to be or pretend to be.
So here’s what you need to know…
To surrender is NOT to give away your power. It is not giving up. Surrender does not mean you don’t take action. It does not mean you do not learn and grow, use tools and develop skills.
Rather, surrender is the context – it is the place you come from – AS you do all of these things. It is what OPENS you to the abundance that is and has ALWAYS been available to you.
Because, you see, abundance is not a destination. It is not a goal you accomplish. It is not something to “get” or even something you “manifest”.
Abundance is an EXPERIENCE, a vibration, a way of BEING in life.
Abundance is knowing – at a cellular level – that you are part of something bigger (and more powerful, loving, creative, generous and intelligent) than you AND that you have access to all that you need.
In Abundance, there is no fear.
There is trust. There is love. There is power and peace.
There is LIFE.
THIS is what I am inviting you to surrender to, my friend.
It is why I’m inviting you to join me September 27-29 in St. Paul, Minnesota for Surrender to Abundance-LIVE – an intimate 2 1/2 day Retreat Intensive for women.
