    The Abundance Mind Body Connection

    The Abundance Mind Body Connection

    When you hear the word “abundance,” what comes to mind? Maybe the first thing you think of is your bank account. And while that’s one way of measuring abundance, it’s a limited view of the concept of abundance.
    Abundance means plenty.
    And is about more than money. Think health, relationships, time, energy, and self-image.
    Abundance is everything. 
    Yet money is a great metaphor for whether we’re embracing abundance or pushing it away. If it feels like there’s not enough in your bank account, then my (evidence-based) guess is that you probably feel you don’t have enough in other areas of your life.
    Abundance is everything — it’s a way of life. You have access to an internal flow of abundance just because you’re here.
    And here’s the interesting thing — your body will tell you when you’re not living in abundance. 
    When you sit down to pay the bills and get a knot in your belly, that’s uneasiness. And abundance cannot flow to you in that state.
    Your state (there’s that word again) — is key. It’s crucial you manage your state to tap into the flow of abundance that’s always there, and it starts by noticing and appreciating the abundant things in your life.
    See if you can notice some good things around you right now. 
    Even if you’re thinking, “But I can’t think of anything.”
    That’s when we need to go back to basics.
    Are you breathing? Notice and be thankful.
    Did the sun come up this morning? It did here, and it was beautiful.
    Do you have a memory of feeling loved? Remember and bask in it.
    Once you’re in an improved state and feeling the abundance that’s there, then pay your bills from a state of plenty. And as you write the checks, or click that payment button, remember the amazing things you get in return — water, electricity, heating and cooling, and even that comfy new sofa.
    And notice how different you feel in your body. See how your face softens to a smile.
    Your body is your gateway to connection and your spiritual experience. 
    I invite you to tune in. Listen to your body. It will tell you how you’re doing.

    Making a Self-Care Promise

    Making a Self-Care Promise

    I recently started a new group coaching program designed to help students achieve big things in a short amount of time — just three months. As you can imagine, it’s pretty intense. We’re setting goals (and making progress) almost daily.
    Some people in the group have expressed concern about not being able to do it all. There’s work, home, family, kids — obligations galore — plus the coaching program. How can they make the time to do it all?
    I understand what they’re feeling. Trust me. I’ve been there. I was a single mom, and it was always a balancing act. 
    Here’s what I’ve learned from my own journey and from my clients’ journeys…
    The balancing gets easier and answers become clearer when you prioritize self-care.
    We tend to think that we’re either accomplishing great things or we’re stuck. But it’s really not like that. It’s easy to forget that it’s often the little things we do consistently that have the greatest impact. The big results come from faithful practices — practices like eating well, exercising, writing, taking the next little step towards your goal, and then taking the next step and the next step. Take consistent small steps and you’ll not only get there, but your healthy habits will also have taken root, and they’ll be there to serve you in future endeavors.
    The alternative to not prioritizing self-care is to let yourself be driven by others’ demands and external circumstances. You’ll give, give, give, and will likely end up feeling frustrated and underappreciated. 
    If that’s where you find yourself, here’s the hard truth: 
    What you’re experiencing has more to do with the filters inside your nervous system than with anything in your environment.
    This is why your relationship with yourself is your most important relationship. Thankfully, it’s also the only one you can control.
    So how do you start putting yourself first? Here’s a challenge is for you:
    Get up 30 minutes early and invest some time meditating, reflecting on your own goodness, the good in those you love, your intentions for the day, exercising, reading — whatever serves and nourishes you.  Decide to say yes to the things that serve you and will bring you closer to your goals. Commit to saying no to the things that don’t serve you or your future goals. Give it a try. Within a week, you’ll see consistency, clarity, self-control, and increased confidence. Why? Because you will be more in charge of you. 
    And the cherry on top is that it’s from there that you can best care for those you love.

    Leveraging the Power of Thought to Get What You Want

    Leveraging the Power of Thought to Get What You Want

    As a human being, it’s nearly impossible for you to stop thinking. Here are some quick “thought” facts for you. You’ll understand the weightiness of these a bit later…
    You have about 70,000 thoughts each day.  90% of those are repetitive thoughts. Half of your thoughts are automatic. (Your unconscious mind is trying to be efficient.) The majority of your thoughts are negative. (We have a negativity bias to keep us safe from saber-toothed tigers and other dangers)  
    Thoughts are powerful. I often say that you get what you focus on. And since your focus comes from what you think, in essence, your thoughts will determine your outcomes. Especially those repetitive thoughts. 
    You might be wondering, Where do these thoughts come from, anyway?
    Good question. Your existing neurology is made up of everything that has happened in your life experience, especially before the age of 5-7 years. Before then, you were like a sponge, soaking up whatever your caregivers told you. Repeated thoughts then became beliefs as the brain sought to make connections between those internal thoughts and your external experiences. Yes, for better or worse, the unconscious mind essentially seeks to validate repeated thoughts.
    That’s why it’s so important that we think good thoughts. The brain is going to do work to give the essence of what you focus on, in other words, what you think about! So we might as well make it something good. Right?
    Are you getting a glimpse of the power of your thoughts? 
    A client had been having some struggles with her business. In talking about it, she revealed that she met each day with dread. That’s no way to productively tackle challenges. So we worked to change that. 
    Within just three days of doing some thought work before going to bed and upon waking, she saw a shift. She became empowered by changing her thoughts!
    You are significantly more powerful than you think you are. And it has everything to do with your thoughts.
    This work is not hard to do, and you don’t have to go from zero to 60 all at once. Start by asking, “How is it that I want to feel?” because just thinking about it will create a tiny shift in the right direction. Then you can build momentum from there.
    To change your thoughts, utilize these tools:
    When you have a thought that doesn’t serve you, reject-delete it. Practice pattern interrupts when negative thoughts arise Use our free resource to rewrite negative thoughts Play the ABC game Make a list of all the things you love about the people in your world Make a list of the things you love about yourself     Change your thoughts; change your life.

    Inspiration, Motivation, and Your Abundance

    Inspiration, Motivation, and Your Abundance

    If you’ve been listening for a while, you know that this isn’t another motivational podcast. We go much deeper than that here. 
    Let me explain…
    Have you ever felt compelled to do something, to take action? A client recently contacted me because she wanted to have a quick talk about a business she wanted to start. It would be a business aimed at helping others feel safe and secure — well aligned with what we all need today, right?
     
    Sounds good so far, but we need to get some context.
    She has been, understandably, upset by all the turmoil she sees in the world. It makes sense that she’s craving safety, security, and certainty for herself and for others, especially since those things were lacking in her own upbringing. We all want these things. She also thinks that her current job is in jeopardy, so she feels the need to create options.
    What she thought would be a 20-minute chat turned into a two-hour deep conversation of us exploring the birthplace of her ideas.
    As in, where do all those ideas, inspirations, and nudges come from?
    You might be wondering why it matters.
    Because externally-motivated goals or plans lack a key ingredient: inspiration. 
    Motivation is externally-driven. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when you’re talking about a big change like starting a business for the first time, you need to be inspired, not just motivated. If you’re only motivated, most of the process is going to feel like a grind. And before long, you’re going to be exhausted.  
    Inspiration, on the other hand, is internally-driven and is always positive. 
    It lights you up inside and gives you energy. And you’ll need it to do the hard things required to make your dream a reality. 
    When you’re inspired, you don’t need an alarm clock to get you out of bed in the morning. In fact, in the early days, you might have to use the alarm clock to discipline yourself to take breaks. 
    In today’s episode, we revisit the concept of the direction filter. Are you primarily moving towards what you want or away from what you don’t want? Both have you moving in the same general direction, but the focus is in opposite directions. If you’re focusing on what you don’t want, you might not even know what you do want!
    From an NLP perspective, we have the conscious mind, the unconscious mind, and higher consciousness — which consists of the higher conscious mind (or higher self, or soul) and the superconscious (God, Source, the Universe or another name you choose). That higher conscious mind is the part that’s connected directly to your unconscious mind.
    My goal is to help you align your unconscious mind with your higher conscious mind so that you can be truly inspired from the inside, keep your focus on what you want, and take inspired-action steps from there. 
    Now inspiration is all about having divine guidance. This is where we meet our higher consciousness and where we’ll find the blueprint for good things in their ideal form. This is where we find our flow, where everything feels clear, easy, and effortless.

    How You’re Unconsciously Programming Your Unconscious Mind [Rebroadcast]

    How You’re Unconsciously Programming Your Unconscious Mind [Rebroadcast]

    “I know you talk about it all the time, but what is the unconscious mind again?”
    The unconscious mind is your power center that’s controlling things in the background. You don’t go around reminding yourself to breathe. The unconscious mind handles that for you. It’s also keeping straight which is the brake and gas pedal, how to ride a bike, what your phone number is, your children’s birthdays, all your memories...and so, so much more! 
    The unconscious mind processes boatloads of information every single second so that the conscious part of the mind can focus on just the (relatively) few things that are filtered in by your focus. Otherwise, we would live in overwhelm and overload.
    So, in the end, whatever comes into your consciousness originates in the unconscious mind and is then filtered out into your awareness.
    This is why it’s so important that you manage what goes in.
    Some important things to remember:
    The unconscious mind loves repetition. The things you focus on frequently are what the unconscious mind will latch onto. The unconscious mind doesn’t process negatives directly. This is why positive, toward language is so important. If you “don’t want to get sick,” you’re unconscious mind hears  “get sick”. Focusing on the positive, on “being healthy.” is way more useful. The unconscious mind takes everything personally. If you’re thinking or talking about someone else, the unconscious mind thinks it’s you. So watch what you think and say. If you bad mouth your neighbor, your colleagues, your spouse, from your unconscious mind’s perspective, you’re essentially beating up on yourself. Keep it constructive and positive. Emotion always wins with the unconscious mind. This is why it’s important to recognize and combat negative and limiting beliefs.  In NLP, we say that what you see, hear, speak, and feel is what you’ll get. This is why it’s so important that you guard what comes in and what you focus on. 
    One place to especially watch out is social media. Carefully choose what media to consume. Make sure it’s positive and that it leaves you feeling good.  Similarly, engage in conversations that are positive and that feel good. Sure, tough conversations need to happen from time to time, but as a general rule, avoid conversations that leave you feeling disempowered.  Don’t talk about your problems. This just serves to reinforce neurology around the problems. Solutions will be found by getting out of the problem and to  broader perspective. The truth is that we’re unconsciously programming our unconscious minds every day with what we expose ourselves to. So make a conscious decision to create an environment that is positive and resourceful and that will serve you as you move forward.

    My 5 Daily Practices for Making it a Great Day [Rebroadcast]

    My 5 Daily Practices for Making it a Great Day [Rebroadcast]

    Everywhere I go, people notice and comment on the fact that I’m an upbeat person. And they’re right. I feel good and positive almost all the time. Really. 
    Sure, I have moments of setback and overwhelm just like everyone else, but what I’m talking about is the state of my typical, usual days. They’re happy, positive...plain ol’ great days. Wondering how I do it? 
    First, you should know that it’s not by accident that I have good days the vast majority of the time. I plan to have good days, and I plan to feel great. The days are too precious to leave to chance. So I work at it. And it’s so worth the effort. 
     
    I’ve developed some daily practices that keep me on a positive track.  
    And those practices start the night before. Here are my top five practices for having a great day.
    The night before, calm the nervous system. Pay attention to how you spend the last few hours before going to bed. If scary, dramatic movies give you fitful sleep, avoid that sort of thing. Figure out what is calming to you and do that instead. A cup of soothing tea, walking the dog, a lighthearted show… Visualize the end of the coming day and feeling good about the day you just had. Visualize, in a soothing way, the projects, meetings, and conversations you’ll have in the coming day. Visualize what it will feel like to come home and relax after a productive day. Do you have a spiritual practice? If so, harness it during this time. Get plenty of sleep. Go to bed early and get seven to eight hours of sleep. Before you get out of bed in the morning, set your intentions for the day. Don’t get too granular here. Think big-picture intentions. This could involve meditation or a spiritual practice. Finally, throughout the day, set high expectations. Pause before you do the next thing and talk to your unconscious mind about the outcomes you want to have. When you get congruent, you’ll be amazed at the doors that open for you.  My clients and I have proven these techniques over and over again. They really make a difference! The quality of your days is too valuable to be left to chance.
