At the end of each year I have a ritual that I've engaged in for many years.
I also set aside time for this ritual at the start of any new project.
And it's a fabulous ritual to amplify your desires and intentions at both the new moon and the cross quarters, as in the Equinox and Solstice.
Being right in the energetic window of this September Equinox, followed by a full moon to illuminate what we might otherwise not
this is a powerful opportunity to amplify YOUR desires, dreams and intentions.
So what's this ritual, you might ask?
Well, I sit down with my manifesting journal and write down my intentions for the desired outcome of a project. This can also be done on your computer; I'm just a big fan of writing with pen on paper.
When I do the annual ritual then there's more involved so for now let me just share the steps for amping up your manifesting mojo for a project or dream you wish to manifest.
And before your mind goes into
'I already know this stuff'...
give your mind permission and instruction to let go of thinking it already knows everything about manifesting so that you can be open to receiving an upgrade 🙂
- Claim at least an hour of ME time where you will not be disturbed.
- I often do this at the beach as I love calling on the ocean energy to support me yet if I'm at home then I'll use some of my favourite energy clearing sprays or burn some Palo Santo. Use whatever lights YOU up and makes you feel really nurtured. You might like to light some candles. Whatever works for you to create a sacred space.
- I pull out my liquid crystal cards or goddess or angel cards and choose one card for overall energy, and one for each phase of the project. If it's 3 months, for example, then one card for each month's energy theme.
- Next I write down desired outcome.
Now this is where your manifesting mojo is about to get a boost!
If you've ever set lofty goals or declared your intentions for something that hasn't happened yet, despite you declaring your intentions again and again... then a couple of things tend to happen:
- You feel disappointed and guess what?... If this has happened more than a few times, now you’ve (un)consciously set up an expectation pattern that keeps running the expectation-disappointment loop. Frustrating as %&#@, right?
- You stop allowing yourself to feel what you really desire and hence ask for less than what lights you up as you settle for crumbs.
- You lose confidence in your ability to manifest what you desire.
Basically, it sets you up to quit right before the miracle.
The interesting thing I’ve noticed over the years is that I’ve had various judgments in place as to the ease or difficulty levels of my intentions and goals.
- Asking my parking angels to line up a parking spot right in front of the beach? Easy.
- Yet when it has come to manifesting money, for example, I’ve had a crap load of judgments and limitations as to what I felt was possible and available for me to manifest and receive.
Any time I’ve recognised the upper limits I had placed on my abundance and let that energy be transformed, then it opened up the flow and as if by magic, money flowed in more abundantly than I had previously allowed.
Even more interesting is when I started noticing how I’d sabotage that increased flow...
Just a few short years ago I was really struggling to make ends meet.
A good month for me back then was $2000 yet more often than not, I was lucky if I made $1000.
Obviously not enough to cover rent, utilities, bills and other living expenses.
- Then I received the divine download that led to 40 Days of Money and Miracles, which helped me and many others heal our money wounds and stories. To this day I’m still in awe at how it all unfolded.
- And then I discovered the Sacred Money Archetypes® , which helped me ground my alchemist essence as I discovered we all have an Inner Money Team that is either supporting us, or sabotaging us with achieving our juicy money goals. If you’re curious which archetype is running your Inner Money team, then take the Money Quiz.
As I integrated the archetypes into my joyful soul business coaching, what used to be a good month for me with $2000 is now a very rare lowest income month.
When I was doing my annual ritual at the end of last year to seed my intentions for 2018, I declared a super juicy money goal of experiencing my first $25K month. That’s over 10x what I allowed myself to receive just 5 years ago...
- Did I know how this was going to happen? No.
- Did I believe it was possible? Absolutely, even though I wasn’t sure how or when.
Well, guess what?
In April this year I exceed my super juicy $25K goal.
And guess what?
It felt ahmaaaazing and was so much FUN.
How did this happen?
This is where your manifesting mojo is about to get a boost.
I set incremental juicy money goals and backed those up with aligned action steps.
If I had set intention to go from $2000 a month to $25K a month, it wouldn’t have happened.
I simply had not expanded my consciousness to receive and have that increased abundance of money yet. Even though consciously I might say that I wanted it and was ready for it and believed it was possible, energetically I wasn’t prepared.
I see this happen a lot with clients and participants in my group programs, too.
- Once this is shifted, then much to their delight, money starts to flow more abundantly.
- And until that is shifted, then someone will keep on trying to do what they think they should be doing or have been told they should be doing, and just get more and more frustrated when they’re not getting the results they say they want and are ready for…
Which simply reinforces the biggest beLIEf of YOU not being enough….
Not ready enough
Not smart enough
Not deserving or worthy enough
Not whatever enough.
If the Inner Shitty Committee is broadcasting that tune on your channel, then STOP IT and re-mind yourself:
I AM ENOUGH.
So what did I do and what do I teach my clients and students?
- First of all, get clear on your numbers.
What have you been receiving over the last 12 months?
What have your expenses been over the last 12 months?
What’s the difference between these numbers? Profit or loss?
Just like entering your desired destination into your car’s navigation system or using google maps, in order to provide you with best directions, the system needs to know your starting location.
If you’re not clear on what your actual numbers are and have been, versus what you think they’ve been… then you don’t have an accurate starting location.
- Once you have these numbers, divide them by 12 to get a monthly average.
In the Money Mindset Makeover program we then dive in deep to uncover your current upper abundance limit and how to reset this so you are energetically ready to receive the increased flow of abundance.
You might be amazed, or not, at the unconscious money beLIEfs that’ll bubble up to the surface that will keep the brakes on…
a very common one is the fear that you won’t be able to handle the increased money flow and/or that making more money means you’ll have to work harder and you’re already exhausted so no thanks…
- Now that you actually know what your monthly average has been, what would you like it to be?
This is where you start to set incremental steps.
- I like to set a minimum juicy money goal that will cover all the basics required to keep my biz running and cover all expenses in my private life plus some extra for fun.
- Then I set what I like to call my Shoot for the Moon goal, which seems crazy at the time yet still feel possible. Like my $25K juicy money goal when up until then my highest month had been just over $15K.
- And then I set what I call my Land Among The Stars goal, which is somewhere in between the minimum and the Shoot for the Moon goals.
Once you’ve got your numbers, then it’s time to get into aligned inspired action steps to bring you closer to manifesting your desired goals.
It will require you to step outside your comfort zone and do things that scare you.
You might have to risk being judged, ridiculed, abandoned, disappointed…
And you might have to risk succeeding and feeling deeply fulfilled whilst those you care about are still struggling or settling for less than makes their heart and soul sing...
- If you’re just going to meditate and envision yourself celebrating having achieved your juicy goals yet you’re not taking any practical action steps, then you’re caught up in airy fairy magical thinking.
- If you’re just charging ahead in action mode without first aligning your energy with your desired goals, then you’ll either achieve them and find yourself wondering if this is all there is… and go in search of more fulfilling experience by chasing next shiny object… or you’ll achieve your goals but end up having burnt yourself out.
Where the magic happens is when you combine the two: practical spirituality.
And what you’ll find happening is that as you review this process every 6 months or so, is that as you increase your minimum, Land Among the Stars and your Shoot for the Moon goals, that what once seemed crazy yet possible, has in fact manifested.
And that what used to be your upper limit has become your minimum bottom line.
And you’ll wonder why the hell you ever settled for so little!
It will require a willingness and commitment to fully believe in the light you are to manifest what deLIGHTs you…
That may sound simple, and it is…
yet not always easy when you’ve been conditioned to struggle, plug along and play by the rules of the ‘No Pain, No Gain’ game.
