How do you stay true to your sensitive nature in business?March 7, 2021
I’ve recently been diving into my money mindset and doing some intense work on it, as a complement to my regressions and embodiment work.
Even though I’ve done A LOT of work in this area, a lot of my old stories have been rising recently:
Stuff around feeling guilty for having more than others (especially being in Kenya). Beliefs around not wanting more responsibility or feeling like that will be the case if I open to receive more. Having more money creates obligation. Having money makes me separate from others. Old judgements about people with money. The list goes waaaay on.
Basically a lot of judgements, stories and BS that have been hanging around and creating an energetic mismatch in me.
It’s amazing how this stuff comes around every time you up-level.
Now, I know money is a HUGE area, and something I am going to share much more on (I also talk about it in my book Embodied Business), as it’s such a key block that comes up for empathpreneurs. But, what I will say is this – every time you up-level or want to bring in a higher amount, the process is basically the same. Here are some prompts you can journal on:
- What is it you desire? Is it a certain amount of money? A certain lifestyle? Things? Spend some time connecting to what that is.
- Then, ask yourself these questions: What are all the reasons this isn’t possible for you? What would having/receiving this mean for you? How would it change your life negatively? (You may not think it will on the surface, but as you dig into it I am sure you will come up with some reasons). Journal out every single thing that comes up for you.
- Now looking at everything you wrote down, ask yourself ‘Is it true?’ (It very rarely is, and if there’s an element of truth in there it is likely not the whole truth and can be shifted)!
- Now re-write these stories/beliefs/lies you are telling yourself to keep yourself in the same place, and tell yourself what is true. Create a new positive story for yourself filled with possibility. Find examples from others if you need to.
- Then, connect with these new truths/possibilities and really spend time feeling each one of them in your body.
- More stuff may rise as you begin to connect with these new truths/possibilities, this is all the stuff you need to continue to work through.
