Is this resistance a sign I should quit?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tap Into the Universe.

If you’ve ever wondered if you should quit your dream because the struggle is just too much then keep reading.

Michelle submitted the following question …

“Spirit Guides. How do I know when you’re telling me to stop for my own good or if the resistance I feel is just fear?”  

Reading between the lines, I’m guessing she’s really struggling to manifest and somewhere along the time, she started to wonder if she should quit.

I love this question Michelle, so thank you for submitting it. It echoes the inner voice of so many entrepreneurs who are struggling to manifest their dreams.

Your Spirit Guides are showing me the following vision …

You’re standing behind a massive wall.

On the other side, there is nirvana (aka your desires).

You’re standing a few feet away from the massive wall that seems to be miles long. You’re all dirty, like you’ve been at this for a very long time.

You’re hands, and knuckles are bloody and your clutching a chisel.

You’ve been at it for a very long time and you’ve realized that if you keep using the chisel, you’re not going to get to the other side.

When I ask your Spirit Guides what you need to know…

They show me to take a few steps to the left and you will see an opening in the wall. There you can simply walk through and receive your desires.

Let me translate this into English…

The wall is a symbol of resistance.

You’ve been working hard to get through the wall of resistance for a very long time and over time you’ve lost your ability to see alternative solutions.

This happened because somewhere along the way you got ultra focused and you got super attached to getting results in a particular way.

Don’t beat yourself up – it happens to everyone.

Should you give up on this desire?

I’m shown a massive beating heart floating in the air while your guides are saying, “This is your heart’s desire, don’t you dare give up.”

Your desire is pure, and you truly want it. Because of this, you need to figure out a way.

The only time to give up on your dream is when it’s not a true heart’s desire. For example, a lot of entrepreneurs build offers what they think their clients want, but that they themselves don’t want. When this happens, there’s massive resistance and it means it’s time to find a better way.

The real problem here is that you’re attached to how your desire comes, so you’ve limited your options as to how the Universe could actually help you out.

It’s like you’ve put all your eggs in one basket.

What do you do now?

1) Get excited about your dream again

Take a few minutes and journal about your dream. Here are a few prompts to get you started:

  • My dream is …
  • My dream is important to me because …
  • I desire this because …
  • I like who I become in my dream because …
  • I’m excited about this dream because …

2) Let go of the how …

I now, this is easier said than done.

A lot of people get really confused as to how to do this and by doing so, they get even more attached to the how as the frustration grows.

The key is two-fold.

  • Decide that your actions are for creating opportunities. It’s like if you open door #1 with action #1 and then door #2 appears.
  • Do more. Make a list of all the actions you could be taking. Ask yourself if you’re missing opportunities because you’ve been so ultra focused on the lack of results. Once you have a list (at least 10 options), do as many as you can. The more you do, the more doors open. You never know where results are going to come from.

If you find that you cannot release the frustration around the action you’re taking, stop doing that for a while and find at least 2-3 alternative paths.

At the very least, this will help you find a path with less resistance. According to the vision, there is such a path.

Your guides are saying, “You know what it is.” It’s most likely the one that you’ve discounted because you think it won’t work.

That’s it – that’s what your Spirit Guides had to say.

Join the Discussion…

Do you resonate with the guidance that was given for Michelle? Do you think you’re too narrowly focused on the how? If so, what actions will you take to expand your vision?

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say in the comments below.

 

Much love,

Why aren’t my actions leading to results?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tap Into the Universe.

If you’ve ever been confused as to why the actions you’re taking aren’t getting you the results you want then you’re going to love this week’s edition of Tap Into The Universe.

Pat submitted the following question …

 “The last three keynote presentations I did, was literally told I was the best speaker they’ve ever seen. In fact one apologized for not paying me more money. Which was cool. However there seems to be a block in really up leveling this piece of my business and income. Why?”

 

When I read the question, I can feel the frustration.

Pat is really asking two questions: If you’re taking action then shouldn’t you be getting results? What do you do when you don’t get the results you want?

Before I connect with her Spirit Guides, I just want to say that I don’t believe in coincidences.

If you’re reading this and you’re wondering the same questions, no matter the circumstances, the guidance that is given by Pat’s Spirit Guides is also for you.

Now when I check in with your Spirit Guides…

They are showing me a vision of you as a little girl watching you on stage as the woman you’ve become.

You’re so proud. You’re so excited.

As soon as you walk off stage, you turn your focus to an electronic board showing the number of sales that have come in.  It’s a little bit like an infomercial.

When people come to talk to you, you acknowledge them, and you chat, but you’re not 100% with them because your real focus is watching the results come in.

When I asked them why they walked away, money in hand, they say, “I’m not sure how she can help me.”

This happens over and over again.

What does this mean for you?

Seeing the little girl being so excited tells me that the stage is the right place for you and you should totally keep doing it. It implies total and complete alignment. Everything should feel this good in your business.

The problem isn’t the talk, the problem is the constant focus on the results.

Giving your attention to the numbers (results) that are not coming in stops the Law of Attraction from bringing them to you because you’re focus is on what’s not coming.

If you want results, you can’t focus on them.

Also…

By focusing on the results, you stop coming in from a place of service.

Whether or not they are consciously aware, your peeps know that your focus is not really on them. They want to be seen & heard. It’s also how you’ll discover what they are truly wanting.

I’m shown that they are seen and heard, they will offer gifts to you that were unexpected.

Bring in the same energy from the stage…

You should be having as much fun talking to them as you do when you’re on stage. The reason you’re magnetic on stage is that your mind is clear and that you’re totally focused on them.

When you bring that energy to the people that you talk too, no matter how they reached you, the sales will follow.

This is because it comes from your heart. You are truly in alignment!

Here’s what you do now to release the need to watch the results …

1. Reconnect to your Source Energy

Take a few deep breaths and imagine a ray of light, unconditional love, coming down from the ethers. Imagine it coming down through the top of your head down into your heart and into your feet.

Next…

Imagine yourself in your heart and imagine your inside light growing bigger and bigger and until it is much bigger than you. I like to visualize a candle and witness the flame get bigger and bigger until it includes all of me.

I know it’s tempting to skip this step, but don’t. It will help you reconnect to your Source energy. When you do that, you have access to infinite wisdom.

2. Ask for Guidance

This is really quite simple.

You can say a prayer or write down the words. Choose whichever is more comfortable for you.

“Dear Spirit Guides. I need help releasing my focus on the results that I’m not getting. How might I do that?”

If you don’t know why you’re block, you can also ask to be shown what’s blocking you and how to release it.

Then just breathe for a few minutes and allow the answer to come. Don’t force it (that’s key).

If you’re struggling to allowing, repeat the mantra… “All I have to do is breathe. The answer will come if it’s meant too.”

The answer might come to you in the form of an image or you might have a thought, a feeling, or a word.

Whatever you get first is the true inspiration.

Once you receive it, write it down and follow its guidance.

3. When you don’t get an answer.

Sometimes you won’t get an answer, but that doesn’t mean that you should stop there.

If an answer doesn’t come after a few minutes, try this.

Take out a pen & paper and finish the prompts…

  • If I knew what my spirit guides were trying to say, it would be …
  • If I knew what was blocking me, it would be …
  • If I knew how to release this block, it would be …

Feel free to use the change the prompts. Using a prompt is a useful way to get out of your head.

Extra note…

If you’re taking these steps and you’re feeling like the answer isn’t coming, that’s ok.

Stop forcing the answer to come. Just go out and do something fun. Focus on raising your vibe. When you feel good, try the exercise again.

You’ve had a chance to read what Pat’s Spirit Guides had to say…

So now I’m curious. Is the action you’re taking as much fun as Pat action of speaking on stages? Are you watching the results? If so, how will you release the block?

 

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say in the comments below.

How do I keep more money?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tap Into the Universe.

Today’s submission comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. Here’s what she wrote…

The particular topic I need to focus on is KEEPING the wealth I create. I’m a good manifester but I’m also a good spender. I feel like it doesn’t stay with me. How can I keep more of the money I make and start building more wealth?

Thank you so much for submitting your question.

It’s a fairly common problem.

If you’re reading this and you think it’s a question of how much money you make, think again. I’ve seen six-figure and even seven-figure earners face the same problem. Also, it doesn’t matter if you make a little bit of money or a lot, it’s never too early to start accumulating wealth.  

For that reason, I’m so very excited to connect with your Spirit Guides to see what guidance they have you and anyone else struggling to accumulate wealth.

When I ask your Spirit Guides …

I’m shown a vision of you standing beside a giant metal bucket.

There’s water tap over it and you’ve opened it and the water is flowing into the bucket consistently. You’re so proud that the mechanism you’ve set up is working and that the water is accumulating in the bucket.

There’s a red line in the bucket and every time the water reaches that line, you take out your screw driver and you make a hole in the bucket and then you find a way to plug them.

You love how “stopping” a leak makes you feel.

I ask your Spirit Guides to show me what would happen if the red line goes away and the water levels rise.

The bucket magically gets bigger as it keeps more water.

You don’t’ seem relieved though.  You stare at the bucket waiting for a leak to show up. You’re convinced that it will, but it doesn’t come.

When I tell you that there will no more leaks and you finally believe me, you’re filled with panic.

  • What am I going to do now?
  • What am I going to do with all of this money?

Let me translate this …

The water is the money and the bucket is your piggy bank. What this tells me is that you’ve been resourceful in manifesting money.

The systems you have in place are working well, so kudos’s to you.

The red line signifies you have an upper limit with how much cash you can have and whenever you reach it, you self-sabotage and start spending money.

But the upper limit is not the real problem.

The reason you’re creating holes & trying to patch them is that it’s challenging and you’re love with the drama of it all. Who would you be if you no longer had to worry about accumulating wealth?

It’s time to move on to another challenge.

It doesn’t matter how much money you make, until you break this pattern you will always find that your wealth does not accumulate.

How do I keep more money?

Your spirit guides are saying, “If you want more money as you say you do, stop creating leaks in your bucket.”

It starts with a decision that you’re going to spend less than what you make. Once you’ve made that decision, you must find a money management system that works for you.

Just so you know, stock piling piles of money is not a money management system. That’s like going on a diet where you can only eat bananas for thirty days. Eventually you’ll break, and you’ll fall off the wagon. Find a system that fits you & your life.

Here’s are some journalling prompts to help you get started …

  • What does wealth mean to me? Why do I want it?
  • What’s wrong with having wealth? How can I let this go?
  • What do I need to believe having wealth for me to be okay having it?
  • How will I keep life be interesting once I start accumulating wealth?
  • How do I become a great money manager?

For the last question, I recommend you check-out the money management principles laid out in “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth” by T. Harv Eker. I implemented the principles he laid out on money management and discovered how much fun was money could be.

That’s it … That’s what the guides wanted you to know.

You’ve had a chance to read what your Spirit Guides have to say, so now I’m curious. Do you struggle keep more of your money? Do you have an upper limit? What do you think of money management?

 

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say in the comments below.

 

Much love,

Where is the money going to come from?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tap Into the Universe.

This week’s question comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Here’s what she wrote …

“I need guidance as to how to purchase my dream home. Where is the money coming from? The lottery or somewhere else? Thank you”

I love this question because it speaks to the core of what a lot o people want to know.

Where’s the money?

Thank you so much for submitting it as the guidance from your Spirit Guides will not only help you, but all of those people are also looking for the money.

When I ask your Spirit Guides …

I receive a vision of you eating an apple.

You’re standing on the deck of a very large boat in the middle  an Ocean.

You’re biting the apple ever so slowly, chewing it and pondering and trying to figure out the best route to take to get to the other side of the planet.

When you finish the apple, you discard the core and you simply pick up another and keep eating.

You’ve been there for ages and the pile of discarded apple cores is humongous.

Your Spirit Guides are saying this to you, “Just start. You don’t have to know the way. But if you think about it, you’ll never get anywhere.”

Let me translate this into English …

The boat represents where you are right now, and the other side of the world is where you want to be.

You know it’s possible to receive what you want (aka the house), but you also think it’s very far away and somewhat impossible because you can’t seem to figure out.

The only way you’ll believe it’s possible is if you figure out “how” before you even take a step. You want to know that it will all work out.

Here’s the thing – it DOESN’T work that way. You have to decide then the guidance will come, not before.

This is especially true because this goal of yours is something that is way out of your comfort zone.

The guides are saying, ‘It’s possible if you decide it is. If you want to go the other side of the planet, you just have to start and TRUST that the path will unfold.”

Where is the money going to come from?

“This is not about the money,” your guides are shouting over and over again. They even roll their eyes. “This is about commitment.”

In other words, if you want the money, or the house, it’s out there, but first you’ll have to believe it’s possible, decide, and start taking action.

When I see you making this decision, you discard your apple, walk off the boat into a small life boat and paddle away. The paddle boat was there all along, but you hadn’t been using it.

What this means is that you think the money must come in a specific way, but the truth is that there are other opportunities that are already in your life.

There isn’t one way for you to receive the MONEY you desire, but there are multiple ways for you to receive the house.

Here’s what you do now…

  1. Start by releasing the doubt you have it’s even possible for you to receive the money? You can do this with EFT tapping while using the affirmation, “Even though I have a lot of doubt I can get the money for this house, I love myself fully and completely. I know it’s just resistance and I’m open to letting it go.” Click here for video instructions on how to tap.
  2. Next, commit to your destination to receiving & living in this house. If so, make a declaration statement in the form, “I Have decided to live in a house and I have decided to be confident in my ability to allow this house into my life.” Keep it somewhere you’ll read it every day.
  3. Daily, ask your guides what you need to know about. Just clothes your eyes, ask “What do I need to know about receiving my new house?” and follow through on what you’re receiving if there is action to take.
  4. Be grateful for the guidance you receive and follow through on any nudges you get.

Also, keep an eye out of the unexpected solution…

A few months ago, I worked with a client who also wanted the money for a house, which is something that she’d wanted for a very long time. As we released her blocks, it occurred to her that could rent while she got the money together.

She ended up moving into a beautiful home within a few weeks of the session.

This all happened very quickly because she’d stopped trying to figure out how to get the money and instead allowed herself to receive her true heart’s desire.

That’s it … That’s what the guides wanted you to know.

You’ve had a chance to read what the guides, so now I’m curious. Do you have a big goal you’ve been working on? Did you have any insight as you read?

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say in the comments below.

Much love,

 

 

P.S. If you have a question for the Universe, submit it on the form on the right (or below). You can also go here. When you submit your question, you help inspire everyone to manifest more LIFE and for that I’m really grateful.

I’m meant to serve, but how?

Welcome to this week’s edition of Tap Into the Universe.

Today’s submission comes from Jen Amabile.  Here’s what she wrote…

I know I meant to serve in some way in this lifetime. What are the gifts that I need to develop? How am I supposed to serve? What do I need to do to really step into my power? I know that was three questions. Lol

Thank you for submitting your question(s).

I’m so ever delighted to connect with your Spirit Guides and see what guidance they have for you and those who read this blog post.

When I ask your Spirit Guides…

I receive a vision of you as a little girl.

You’re throwing balls against a wall, each one wrapped in wet paper. You’re taking each one from a large basket and you throwing them at the wall hoping that one of them “will” stick. You’ve been at it for ages, but they just aren’t sticking and each one just slides to the ground.

You’ve been at it so long, you’re bored, and you’re confused because you’re doing your part to get the balls to stick, but it’s not working.

You’re starting to hate the balls.

The guides are telling me that it’s not the balls that you don’t like.

Let me translate this into English.

The balls represent all the things you really love to do.

There’s a lot of things that you love.

But getting this out to the world has been a challenge so you’ve started to doubt that the balls are even what you want.

Let’s see about your specific questions …

What are the gifts I am supposed to develop?

According to your guides, you already have all the gifts you need.

What this means is that you have the inner resources to receive what you desire in your life.

You don’t have to do more to get more balls (read marketing tactics) to stick to the wall.

Your guides say, “let go & trust”.

You’re trying to figure it out all and you’re not allowing yourself to receive intuitive guidance. You’re not letting the Universe guide you to what you desire.

The Universe knows the best way for you to receive what you want even if you can’t see how it might happen.

The key is to start raising your vibration.

Start by releasing your obligation to make it all work today as this will help the energy flow again and allow you to come from a place a power, truth, and bliss.

Give yourself permission to walk away from it all and for the next few days, focus on doing the things that make you happy.

This will raise your vibration and allow you tap into your own intuitive guidance. Only then will you start seeing the signs from the Universe so you can take the path of least resistance.

I know, it might seem counterproductive, but trust me, you’ll need to this if you want to receive more in your life & business.

After a few days when you’re feeling mostly good again, start journaling.

  • Who am I?
  • What do I love about coaching?
  • What do I want?
  • What do I want to feel?
  • What do I want to have?
  • What does my heart desire?
  • What excites me?

Do this without expectation and without obligation to do anything about you receive in journalling.

After about a week or so of journalling, start asking your guides for guidance. Ask to be shown what the next step might be. Don’t try to force the answer, just see what comes. Usually your first thought, first feeling is the best one here.

Follow your intuition and take inspired action.

This may not be obvious, but essentially it means that if you feel like painting your bathroom, paint your bathroom.

The path of least resistance isn’t rational, but it always feels good. Trust is allowing so trust that the path will reveal itself as you take action.

How am I supposed to serve?

Your Spirit Guides are showing me you holding a file, like army service papers.

They want you throw them in the waste basket.

“You are not meant to serve. You are meant to be you. The only reason to serve is because you wish to experience that. You get to choose how to serve.”

By asking the Universe to tell you how you’re supposed to serve, you are getting out of the driver seat.

This is you stepping you out of your power.

The only reason to do this is that there is a part of you that believes you can’t have what you desire.

There’s no reason to do this as the Universal truth is that you can have everything you desire.

In fact, it already exists out in the Universe.

The Law of Polarity says that you cannot have a desire without it first existing in the Universe. Your only job now is to get in alignment and take inspired action as the Universe nudges you along.

What do I need to do to really step into my power?

The first words I hear, “Stop trying to please everyone else. Just be here for you. No excuses.”

In fact you do not need to do anything to be in your power.

You simply have to let go of the illusion that you are not in your power.

To release the illusion and claim your power, journal about the following:

  • What do I need to believe that I am in power?
  • Who am I when i am in power?
  • How was I in my power today?
  • If I was in my power, I would …
  • If I could have what my inner being truly desires, I would …

That’s it. That’s what your guides wanted you to know.

Now I’m curious…

You’ve had a chance to read what the guides had to say to Jen’s question, but if you read this post, the information is also for you. So, I’m curious if you can relate to Jen? Did you have a ah-ha as you read?

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say in the comments below.

Much love,

P.S. If you have a question for the Universe, submit it on the form on the right (or below). You can also go here. When you submit your question, you help inspire everyone to manifest more LIFE and for that I’m really grateful.

Why is growing my business taking so long?

Welcome to the first installment of Tap Into The Universe!

This week I picked a question that was asked several times in a Facebook thread I posted earlier this week.

Why is growing my business taking so long?

I really like this question because it’s on the mind of so many coaches, healers, entrepreneurs, and business owners.

When I asked your guides for guidance, they showed me …

A vision of you being five-years old skipping on rocks over water. The stones magically appear as you reach the end of your stones.

You’re having the time of your life and then, all of a sudden, you come to a sudden halt because new stones stop appearing.

Now you’re only option  is to go back & forth over the stones that you’ve already skipped on or jump into the water and get WET.

Along with the fear of getting wet and never being dry again, there’s a feeling of betrayal because the stones should have taken you to the other side.

After all, you were promised!

This vision is telling me that you’re business was once really fun, but that it’s stop being fun and that it’s been that way for a while.

And now you’re stuck because there’s resentment that you’re not there yet and because you’ve stopped receiving intuitive nudges (aka stones) from the Universe..

Is getting wet even the right next step?

Here’s what you do now:

1) Make peace with where you are.

Right now you’re in the wrong vibration because you’re frustrated and you’re stuck in the bitterness of the fact that things haven’t worked yet.

The good news is that the Law of Polarity says that you cannot have a desire unless it already exists out in the Universe.

The bad news is that you can’t see the way there because you’re stuck in the wrong vibration. That’s why you’ve stopped receiving intuitive nudges and why the path ahead is so unclear.

It doesn’t mean that the path isn’t there, it simply means that you can’t see them because your vibration keeps the blinders on.

So your first is to make peace where you are.

There are a number of ways to do this, but my personal favorite is to practice forgiveness by doing the ho’oponopono prayer.

Just everything you’re frustrated about it in your business and repeat, “I love you. I forgive you. I’m sorry. Thank you.”

2) Make room for opportunities

This step is really simple.

It’s simply releasing an obligation of making what you’ve already tried work for you and making room for new opportunities.

The truth is that what was right & fun for you in the past may be out of alignment with you today. That’s true even If it got you results.

Ask yourself…

  • What am I holding on to that’s no longer feeling good?
  • What would I like to change, but I don’t because I think it’s supposed to work?
  • If I could do anything, what might I do? Don’t stick with your business, go beyond that.

The best way to do this is journal for a few days and see what comes up.

Do not try to act on everything you get as it comes up.

Let it go for a few days. Often the act of acting on everything we get stops us from moving forward.

At the end of a few days, decide what you’re ready to release from your business because it feels right to do so – it doesn’t mean it won’t be scary.

Do it. Don’t even think about it.

Then take the list of things that you might like to do, and do the #1 thing that would be the most fun for you.

If you feel like taking a few days off, taking a trip, creating an offer that’s “different,” then do that.

It might not be rational, but the Universe is laying out the best stones for you to skip on. The sooner you skip on the next one, the sooner you get the next one.

Trust the Universe!

Finally your guides say this to you, “If you can’t see the opportunity, ask us for help and we’ll make sure you see them clearly.”

Now go jump into the water – you might just discover that getting wet is the most fun thing you’ve done in years!

Much love,

Nathalie
