BadAss Money…AWE?

If you are a wild woman, are you a bad ass? And if you are a bad ass, is that not good? And if you have bad ass money, is that good or bad? Think about this on a Friday morning, the beginning of the weekend. Who are you? A Wild Woman? Not everyone will approve of you no matter what you do. The most important thing to remember is that you must be who you are. The choice is up to you. And that is reflected with your money. If you are a wild woman, define that for yourself. Keep in mind, your energy will become the energy of your money.

And your money can be a wild woman, a bad ass, or what?

Getting Healthier & Wealthier Every Day!

Peopley

It is purely amazing how easy it is to become a happy hermit.  I have not left my home since Saturday because of this amazing illness, which is so very slowly improving, but improving it is.  I have appreciated great sleep, great sunshine, and great peace of mind all the while preventing my germs from being spread.  And I am getting better!  This took great discipline, and I actually worked from home as well.  There is no desire for me to go out, and there are no plans until Saturday, if I am better.  If I am not, I will continue with my happy hermiting.  Spreading germs is not a good thing, and I have done too much of it in four weeks.  I would get better and then relapse, over and over.  I am off of all chemical drugs, I am sleeping well, eating well, and letting the illness run its course.  Looking at my facial skin yesterday without any makeup for four days, and it looks really good.  I am a healthy eater, sleeper, etc.  In all honesty, this self hibernation does coincide with my stepping away from Pampered Chef and Norwex as well.  It is a slow process but progress is being made as I step more and more into Empower Excellence and financial coaching.  The interesting point to be made here is that Health and Wealth are closely linked:  the healthier I become every day, the wealthier I am also becoming because I am becoming more and more focused.  Multitasking in the same of creating more wealth is a big misunderstanding:  As I became more diverse, I became less wealthy.  So now, my mission, my passion, my focus is on the Universe’s present to me of Empower Excellence.  Watch me grow, watch me glow, and when I return to the outside world it will be with a greater appreciation for the choices I am making.

And then September began…

IMG_0041

Nor is it an excuse…

Yesterday was September 1, and it turned out to be a very productive day in a very different way…I am beginning an invitation-only program to fast track me in a selected area of The Empower Excellence Experience.  It came to me without any request on my part.  That was a door opening to realize that I often do not ask for manifestations that are “big” enough.  This is a big ask that came to me, and I accepted the challenge.  You see, like “being a girl” is never a reason or excuse for anything, as we get older, the reason or excuse that “we are too old” to start something big is never a reason or an excuse for anything!

I guess, with the change of the seasons as Fall approaches, I am finally accepting that I am “older”.  But that is probably as far as it will go.  I am young at heart, younger in appearance than my chronological age, and my fighting spirit that was pushed down in the 1960’s is coming into full bloom.  I am ready for anything and everything within my choosing.

And that is what my move to Oberlin 6 months ago this weekend was all about:  I am choosing a different lifestyle.  I am choosing to combine that lifestyle with an on-line modern day presence in many parts of the reconfigured Empower Excellence into The Empower Excellence Experience.  I want my freedom to do what is my mission and passion:  Personal Sustainability.  Many have traveled this road in many forms:  we want peace and quiet and love to pursue what is ours to do.  And that has nothing to do with being female or being older.  It is the essence of the soul becoming awake!

So, yes, yesterday was September 1, and I worked and I went “into the city” to do necessary banking that cannot be done electronically.  I took two first steps in the accelerated challenge and began to reach goals for that program already.  I crossed off another “to do” because literally I am too old to participate in a financial services program but I can do a better, more sustainable job of the task on my own.  That was confirmed by my insurance agent!  I did what was mine to do, including laundry, brewing gallons of tea for the coming week, and cleaning the floors of my home.  It was nesting in many areas, and it was mine to do.

There was no blog…that was meant to start off the month of September today.  And this is what I offer each and every one of you in this newly arriving season that I love…it is called “Fall” for a reason.  It is time to fall in love with yourself and what is yours to do, no matter how little or big or challenging or not challenging it is.  Fall for the love in your heart, in nature, and in all you do.  This is what I wish for you today on this Labor Day Weekend,and, for many of us, falling is a labor that we sometimes feel it not justified, as we have too many other things to do,  But many times those other things lead to a winter of discontent!

Capital as such is not evil…

Beach Glass 12 10 15

Gandhi goes on to say that “…it is its wrong use that is evil.  Capital in some form or other will always be needed.”  And once upon a time we could have chosen what it was that was to be our capital.  Yes, it could have been as simple as beach glass!

If you were to walk upon the beaches of even Northeast Ohio, there are those of us who still see beach glass as valuable.  But, things change as time moves on, and now money of any denomination any where in the world has value that can fluctuate day to day.  It has value because people have made choices over the years.  And that value can be good or bad.  The main thing to remember is that no matter what your capital is, make choices that feel good, really good, not just for the moment but for the long-term…be wise like Gandhi.

Life is All Mine…ALL Mine!

Life is Beholden to You Photo

Forever, that is the amount of time I have…in this world and another world…forever!  I will not just disappear some day.  I will be with my mission and passion forever; and that is why today is beginning a new episode.  A time of choices and opportunities; and opportunities that will force choices.  But they are not choices that will eliminate opportunities; they are choices that will offer new opportunities for me and for others.  It is complicated sounding, but it is not.  It is so easy if I can stay in the flow.  It is not for me to know; it is for me to experience; it is time for me to trust my intuition moving forward as I have for years.  Yes, I am the master of my life; it is my life!  That is a point that is sometimes difficult for people to understand.  I chose my life before I came to the Earth.  God and the Universe and I are co-conspirators, co-collaborators.  I am the privileged one who gets to experience the realities of those choices.  If only I knew the total plan; but that is not for me to know.  It is only mine to live!

Where Does My Power Come From? Where Does Your Power Come From?

Earth-Erde

SO MANY PEOPLE FEEL THAT POWER COMES FROM MONEY, BUT THAT IS SO UNTRUE.  POWER COMES FROM OUR SOURCE.  “SOURCE” CAN BE A DEBATABLE TERM, BUT FOR ME IT MEANS FORM WHERE I CAME.  THAT FOR MANY CAN BE CONTROVERSIAL FOR IT BRINGS UP THE DISCUSSION OF EVOLUTION.  BUT LET’S STOP HERE.  WHATEVER, WHOEVER IS CONSIDERED TO BE YOUR SOURCE, LET’S MOVE ON.

I BELIEVE THAT MY SOURCE ORIGINATED BEFORE THE BIG BANG THEORY.  SOMEONE HAD TO HIT THE SWITCH FOR THE BIG BANG, AND FROM THE BIG BANG EVERYONE CAME TO BE, NOT ALL AT ONCE BUT WHEN IT WAS THEIR TIME TO ENTER THE FLOW OF THE UNIVERSE BILLIONS OF YEARS IN THE MAKING.  I ENTERED THE UNIVERSE AS WE KNOW IT WHEN IT WAS MY TIME.  AND I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF MY POWER CAME FROM THE BIG BANG MOMENT…THERE WAS A MASTER PLAN.  THERE WAS ALSO CHOICE.  BUT THE POWER WAS THERE.

IT IS NOT MONEY, MONEY IS SIMPLY A TOOL TO CREATE WHATEVER IT IS WE ARE TO CREATE DURING THIS LIFETIME.  YES, I ALSO BELIEVE IN REINCARNATION.  MAYBE NOT IN THIS PARTICULAR WORLD, BUT SOMEWHERE, SOMETIME.  MONEY IS A TOOL TO BARTER WITH.  WE GIVE MONEY OUR ENERGY–GOOD ENERGY, GOOD MONEY; BAD ENERGY, BAD MONEY.  YES, YOU CAN CHANGE THAT ENERGY.

BUT MY POWER HAS SO MUCH MORE TO DO WITH MY ENERGY, NOT THE PHYSICAL ENERGY, BUT THE SPIRITUAL, EMOTIONAL, MENTAL ENERGY.  THE MONEY FLOWS WHEN THE ENERGY IS POSITIVE BECAUSE THAT IS WHEN I DO MY BEST WORK TO CREATE MY MISSION OF LIFE.  

WHAT ABOUT YOU?  WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR POWER TO BE?  WHAT IS YOUR ENERGY LIKE?  THINK ABOUT THOSE QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU QUESTION WHAT MONEY CAN DO FOR YOU!  IT WILL MAKE A MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE AS YOU BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOUR SOURCE, YOUR POWER, YOUR ENERGY.  TRY IT!

Happy, Happy Money! Happy, Happy You!

Be Happy 4 3

being happy is sometimes an evasive concept

being happy can be so simple

being happy is something a little baby knows

being happy can be so simple

a dry diaper, a full tummy

being happy can be so simple

it is the adults who screw up happy BECAUSE

being happy can be so simple

being happy is something the two-year old toddler knows:  they just say “NO!”

being happy can be so simple

until

it isn’t!

So many things can make us happy

Money because it symbolizes all of the things we can do with it

What we do with the money no matter our age is up to us

Money can symbolize freedom to choose what it is we want

Money cannot make us happy, but the choices we make with it can.

And so money is happy when we make happy choices

HAPPY, HAPPY YOU

Dream Your Dream or LIVE Your Dream?

Dreaming?

Dreaming?

You have a choice when it comes to your dream:

DREAM YOUR DREAM!

That’s nice and you can talk about your dream, you can find reasons why you cannot have your dream–many times MONEY is blamed, and you can dream away your life.

or

YOU CAN LIVE YOUR DREAM!

Once you make the decision to live your dream, nothing will stand in your way.

WHAT IS YOUR CHOICE?

Test Driving Through Your Life with Money

Test Driving Can Be Done With Your Life With Money!

Test Driving Can Be Done With Your Life With Money!

Too many times we simply jump in to a decision with money without really thinking it through…

We may think, or even say, that we are being spontaneous.  That may be true, but let’s stop and think about the word “spontaneous”.

Generally, it means acting on an impulse.  If you had told me that it was acting on intuition, I might be a little more comfortable.  But acting on impulse takes it to another level.

Is this an impulse like getting married in a wedding chapel in Las Vegas?

Is this an impulse like ordering dessert?

You have to admit that taken out of context leaves a lot unsaid about the intensity of the impulsive action.

Usually, when we talk about a test drive, we are comfortable describing an exploratory ride in a new automobile.  We want to know if the car rides well, if we are comfortable behind the wheel, if the car is as responsive as we like, and on and on.

I am suggesting that we test drive other decisions before we make them when it comes to the money in our life.  It is all about taking the time before we make the decision to make sure that we are as comfortable as we possibly could be.  Then make the decision.

For a few examples, when we are looking to buy a house, spend some time in the neighborhood–go and talk to the neighbors.  It does not have to be threatening to them or to you, just be “neighborly” and see what results.  It could save a lot of grief later.

When you are considering a new electronic device, really talk to people who own and use that device in addition to doing your online research.  More than that, go into a store that sells the device and sit down for a test drive using it in a way you would use it.  Makes sense to me.

And, be audacious and “test drive” a potential financial professional.  Start with the smallest, least threatening thing you can do to work with the professional.  And, choose something where the professional will make little or money from you.  Test their values, test their ethics, test their patience.  You have that right  when you are trusting them to work with your money.  It can save you a lot of money and stress in the long term!

Just saying, a test drive is “free” with a car, so why not use the “test drive” with other decisions in your life!

Let me know how it goes…

When You Need Help With Finding Help with MONEY: Do You Need a Money Coach? Maybe Yes, Maybe No, How Will You Know?

Maybe "yes" Maybe "no"

Maybe “yes”
Maybe “no”

Have you ever gone for a test drive?

Test Drive Coaching Just Like Test Driving a Car!

Test Drive Coaching Just Like Test Driving a Car!

I have never heard of a Money Coach, especially a Transformational Money Coach, ever offering a test drive; and yet they should.  I can say this with a certain degree of certainty since I have had clients who made a commitment who should have never entered into a coaching situation.  Why?

Because they were looking for a cheerleader

Yay! Yay! Yay!

Yay! Yay! Yay!

When They Really Needed

Because They Were Not Going To Do What They Needed To Do!

Because They Were Not Going To Do What They Needed To Do!

There are many reasons for this:

They want someone else to do the work for them!

They have deluded themselves about “needing” a coach because they aren’t doing the work!

There are many more reasons for seeking out a Transformational Money Coach:

You are ready to transform your money relationship into a peaceful, powerful relationship.

Peaceful Money Thoughts!

Peaceful Money Thoughts!

You Know That You Need Help!

All Kinds of Life Events can Set You Back!

All Kinds of Life Events can Set You Back!

So think about Transformational Money Coaching…I know I Offer Test Drives!

It Saves Everyone a Lot of Grief.
