Let me tell you something…your lack of time or money is actually an excuse for not getting your needs met.
I know what you are thinking…”this is going to be another story about the ‘so called’ illusion of time and money, but its freakin’ real for me lady!”
I hear you. I am in and out of these programs too. 😉
Getting your needs met is about healing yourself, stepping into your power and living your purpose.
Let’s look at time.
Lately, I’ve been witnessing so many women who are “time-strapped”.
Look, I’m a single mom, with two start-up entrepreneurial businesses and have only so much time in the day too. I get it.
Yet, what makes women feel time-strapped, limited, or overwhelmed is often fear and a few other culprits related to it.
You may recognize these as your new time excuse.
- fear of success or failure
- lack of commitment to sitting in meditation or a daily practice that connects you to your Higher Self/God
- inability to prioritize or manage time efficiently
- a feeling of “not good enough” or “unworthy” or “less-than” that keeps you playing small
- stuck in comparison
- creatively overwhelmed with trouble executing
Do you know that time stretches when you sit down to meditate (see how long 15 min feels!)?
How much time would you save if you didn’t have to edit all those videos and just hit FB live?
Where does the time go when you are leaking your energy all over social media and not applying yourself to your goals?
Read the list above and be truthful.
Are you not getting your needs met because of time?
Let’s look at money.
This money thing, I’m so over it. Aren’t you?
It goes up, down, left, right, completely sideways and prosperous (and then the car breaks down.)
To me, I’m realizing its an exercise in how much I can trust myself and life and surrender.
Money is how much you value yourself and your offerings.
You may recognize these as your money excuse:
- fear of success or failure
- need more skills certifications and letters behind mine name to prove I’m worthy and able
- lack of trust in the ability to use it, manage it
- everyone else is more in need than me, I can put myself last
- I’m “not good enough to receive it” or “don’t deserve it”
- money is the root of evil and shouldn’t be connected to healing or service
Our relationship with money is related to our ego addictions and shadow stories as much as anything else.
As women, it’s especially about breaking through the victim, martyr, persecutor and rescuer syndromes!
We use money as an excuse to not commit to our healing, or not step into our power.
How much money would you save if you didn’t feel like you had to have 20 certifications to start your healing practice?
What kind of money would you make if you believed in your capacity and the voice of your Higher Self?
Describe the success you may have if you loved yourself, valued your abilities, asked for support and understood what you deserved?
Are you really not getting your needs met because of money?
The next step.
Commit to yourself.
This is a practice.
There is no magic bullet.
You can’t hear the whispers of your heart from the pain of your inner child, past stuck emotions and old lineage patterns.
You need to sit and connect with God.
Your purpose is within buried under a lifetime of muck.
When you heal, you have the ability to see with clearer perception.
You can make choices with more discernment.
You reclaim your power.
You become more responsible and less reactive.
You gain the ability to feel and operate with the heart of compassion.
You connect with trust, for yourself, others and life.
You find stability, abundance and the creative flow of the Universe.
You ask for support.
You connect with your Purpose.
