You may have heard the Einstein quote?
"No problem can be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it."
It's no different for solving money problems.
And it's not different when it comes to recovering from a spaz out about money. By spaz out I mean one of those occasions where thoughts about money, lack of money, not enough money, not enough freedom around money, and the like result in really intense negative feelings such as fear. And those occasions where the thoughts are on a loop and possess your mind.
This post is about how to "recover" when that happens. It has to do with shifting consciousness. Shifting money consciousness is a real and tangible thing and as Einstein said, this is required to solve the problem.
So...first of all I must confess. Even though I'm an expert on teaching others how to shift their money consciousness and powerfully create from a place of balance, I still get occasional money spaz attacks.
About a week ago I was at the IGA checkout buying delicious fruit & veg and some other bits and pieces. I went in with a pretty short list but managed to fill my basket and felt the impact of that at the self service checkout.
All of a sudden I felt this panic, negativity and lack come over me. $5 for three peaches!!! $5.12 for two little Lebanese cucumbers!!! Gosh this is expensive!!! Suddenly I started to feel fearful and worried about money. I was spazzing out!
One of the reasons it is hard for me to admit this is because, I of all people, "should" not be effected by these thoughts. Apparently I "should" be such a highly evolved money consciousness expert that it's all "OM" and "namaste" with me and money.
What a load of crap.
Just realising that it was okay for me to have these thoughts and feel these feelings created a big shift for me. So that's tip #1 - if you have points of view that create resistance to thoughts and feelings during your money spaz you actually give the spaz more power. Resistance is futile. The only way to truly shift money consciousness is to accept and be with the ickiness of what you are feeling. And trust me it doesn't have to last long.
Now in my case the money spaz was "imaginary", in other words I have the money to buy the things I need. But the thing about spaz attacks is we are busy "making up" how much money we need and what we need to be doing with it. Therefore they don't always strike "logically", or it could be fuzzy logic, and they sometimes strike as a way to stop us from moving forward - even with things that have nothing to do with money. Because what would we be able to think about and focus on if we weren't obsessing and spazzing out over money? Could money spazzing be the ultimate form of control? Destructive self control??
Sometimes a money spaz isn't "imaginary" because there may be a case where the money truly isn't there, where there is literally no money or "less than none" where you are moving out of a debt situation, so I want to speak to that as well. Not having the money you need and having feelings of fear and thoughts of lack may be more intense or more restrictive because the physical "evidence" is there.
I want to address that in two ways. One is simply questions. And I get that being honest and answering this kind of question can be challenging but I would not be serving you if I sugar coated it. So here goes:
The other thing I want to say to that is I have heard amazing stories of people manifesting the money they need in times when they were skint. How? Why? Well they don't succeed at doing it from the negative, fearful place. They do it from power!! Suddenly the soft, gentle (often inconsistent) request they kind-of-maybe had for money to come in becomes a hard core command that the universe quickly responds to. So the tip here is to be aware of the requests you are sending, not just the words but the energy of them. And if you are skint and ready to manifest money (which truly is one of the easiest things to manifest) then step into your power and send a freaking clear message (read "command") for money. Otherwise go back to the last paragraph and consider why you are choosing to not have money.
Okay so back to dealing with spaz attacks in general, ones that may or may not have the physical "evidence" to justify their occurrence.
As I get to my car driving home from IGA I imagine myself in a workshop discussing this topic of creating a shift when the money spaz happens.
In my imagination I find myself totally put on the spot by a participant, someone who I don't know well, who is maybe attending a workshop of mine for the first time, someone who hasn't yet gotten to know, like, and trust me. This woman is asking the question "so how do you shift from those fearful feelings and thoughts?".
My response is "I love that question." And I go on to explore with her how she can shift it and explain the importance of each of us asking this question for ourselves and really following our own inner guidance. That's another tip, be aware that what worked yesterday might not work today, what works for her might not work for you. But asking empowering questions will always lead you to your truth.
Here's an example of what I mean by "empowering questions" (these are actual questions I wrote in my journal right after the "incident"):
I'm really thankful for my recent money spaz out because it showed me so much about myself and created more clarity for me to share in my work. But it wasn't until I realised that those thoughts and feelings might not have been "my own" that I was able to lighten up about it. Think about it. Even if you think you don't "get energy" and how it works it kind of makes sense that I would be triggered into those thoughts and feelings when I was standing in a place where possibly many people had come before me and stood and had those thoughts and feelings.
Not just am I standing there I'm literally pushing the exact same buttons on the self service check out. I don't have to take on the feelings and thoughts as my own. They enter my consciousness and they can just as easily leave my consciousness. That's another tip. Recognise that you may be taking on other people's shit. This is different to resisting it. Acknowledging it may be someone else's actually helps release it. You can literally imagine the thoughts and feelings releasing from your feet into the ground, being washed away by water, being burned or taken by a gust of wind.
Releasing the thoughts and feelings from our own consciousness doesn't necessarily shift the consciousness. It moves it (the energy of thoughts and feelings) from us to somewhere else but it doesn't necessarily change the essence of the energy. My work is truly not just about moving things out of us it is about changing the nature of them. It is about creating collective consciousness for women around money that feels much better. But sometimes I need to take care of myself first!
So my final tip about dealing with a money spaz, be aware of the gold, the treasure, the message for you, the thing you will receive if you are willing to boldly and bravely decide to wade through the mucky-ness without resisting and pushing it away, not getting swept away in the fear, and come out the other side with clarity and insight not only about your relationship with money but also about your relationship with yourself.
Journey to Abundance
PS - I'm currently on a journey of shifting my relationship with money from practical, sensible and stable to more playful, sensual and enjoyable. I explain this as my relationship with money feeling like eating a juicy peach, the experience where you stand over the sink with peach juice dripping down your chin.
After letting this spaz go and asking empowering questions I ended up meeting a visionary woman who started her own candle making biz from home. It makes me so happy to see women doing what they love & being happy. Anyway I bought a peach scented candle which is now by my bedside reminding me of this shift I am making. And it felt soooo freaking good to give her my money in exchange for one of her beautiful creations.
So that's the bonus tip, find ways to interact with money that feels good; give some away, earn some in a way that feels amazing or spend some in a way that feels amazing, congruent, and uplifting. A recent tip from one of my clients (which I think she got from Abraham Hicks) is keep $100 in your wallet and mentally spend it 100 times a day. I would add to do that in a way that feels amazing...
Do you ever feel like you want to go to the “next level” but are not sure what exactly that is supposed to look like?
Or you do know what it looks like but it feels like 100,000,000 miles away??
When I was younger I can remember my brother’s comment. We were talking about how many video games are so appealing to guys because they are all about fighting and completing these solo missions.
He made a big joke of it. He said something like “if women created a game it would be called ‘Cooperation City’. And nobody gets to the next level until we all get to the next level.”
Apparently my brother actually does have a bit of insight into the differences between men and women.
Which brings up a really good point. I know in my work and even in my friendships, time and time again, it is only through helping others get to their next level that I have been able to get to my next level. I simply can’t get further on my own. I need you. And I am okay with that.
The part that doesn’t always sit as well with me is the fact that I may have had or currently have relationships in my life that prevent me from going to the next level.
I often think about how I simply wouldn’t be able to live the life I do now, to be the person I am now, if I was still with my ex, Sexy Surfer guy. Bless him for his love, everything he taught me, and everything that was possible for me through our relationship. Bless him for setting me free to move to my next level. **tears come to my eyes…**
But let’s face it, tears or no tears, if I am not getting there until we all get there then if someone in my life doesn’t have the same commitment to personal growth that I have…well…they are holding me back…
And I am getting to a point that I may have compassion for the person and the situation but not so much with the patience…
Is there anyone in your life that you need to cut loose or severely limit your contact with so you can get to the next level? How can we navigate this process with grace, honouring the people in our lives who helped us get to where we are and knowing that it is time for that to change?
In the meantime…if you are thinking you would like to get to “the next level” with your money or your work stay tuned for announcements about some upcoming offerings from me. By far and away the most exciting, it’s all about you, next level stuff I have offered yet!
It’s all about you! It’s all about us!
Let’s all go to the next level!!!
Did you know that when it comes to money we choose our relationship with it. We define it. Money will obey our every command.
Problem is. It is so conditioned in so many of us to command money to cause us pain.
We feel betrayed by it. Money, how could you…
We don’t see that we are the ones asking for this and money is obeying us.
We could just as easily command it to obey our desires and wishes. We could inspire money to work for us instead of us working for it.
Why do we command money to cause us pain?
We don’t trust money. We feel slighted.
I know there are women out there who, like me, desire to define their relationship with money. They want this relationships to be on their terms.
We have had enough. We have suffered long enough.
What would it take to slip into the beautiful, receptive, powerful feminine energy?
What would it take to use our powerful feminine energy to command money to do our bidding rather than us to be a slave to it?
Transformation is required. It is a joyful and beautiful process. An unfolding.
We can leave the fear and doubt behind.
What do you deeply desire your relationship with money to feel like?
To your happiness, transformation, and harmony,
Have there ever been times when you felt you were out of your comfort zone? When you felt anywhere from a little bit to hopelessly uncomfortable? When you wished you had more poise, grace and confidence.
As my business continues to grow, as my life continues to grow, as I continue to grow...I continue to be faced with situations where I feel out of my comfort zone. The only alternative seems to be staying small and I'm not down with that right now.
I used to hate the term "fake it till you make it". Well maybe not hate. But I had a strong dislike for it.
Sure I might have wanted to be more self assured, confident, and easy going. But the idea of faking it felt incongruent, out of integrity, like a lie. Not an option I move towards in any hurry.
About four months ago I had an awakening about this which I have been playing with ever since. It's made a big difference in the way I view myself in various life situations and has given me way more confidence in myself as a result.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not the perfect picture of confidence in all situations but that's kind of my point...
The first thing is I have become okay with admitting I feel nervous, shy, unsure, out of my comfort zone, etc. Basically I have reframed vulnerability and now I am not only starting to be more comfortable being uncomfortable but I'm actually thriving on it a little. By that I mean I'm finding it exhilarating instead of overwhelming.
The big difference here is I let myself and others off the hook. I don't expect myself or put pressure on myself to be totally poised and cool under pressure all the time anymore. As a result I create a space to be easy going with how I'm feeling. And other people feel more comfortable around me when I'm in this space, it gives them freedom to be themselves as well.
The other big pop through was my awareness about fake it till you make it. It doesn't feel out of integrity anymore.
I used to think if I acted confident when I didn't feel confident that I was being incongruent. That I was being a faker. I don't think like that anymore.
When I think about the truth of who I am. The truth is. I am confident or at least I have it within me to be. So if I act confident even if I don't feel confident I'm lining up my actions with the truth of who I am or the truth of my potential. If I act unconfident when I'm feeling unconfident I'm lining up my actions with a feeling. And feelings come and go. But the truth of who I am is more consistent.
I have also learned to practice techniques that allow me to embody a sense of being confident rather than trying to project it. I'm holding the sense of confidence within me, within my energy, rather than trying to spew it out and "prove it". This feels so much more comfortable and saves a lot of energy too.
So what specific steps can you take to feel more confident or to take confident action? How can you practise getting outside of your comfort zone more & loving it??
To your happiness, confidence and harmony,
Time is the greatest leveller. We all get the same amount of hours each day. Nobody is any richer than another when it comes to time...
Until...we start to look at how we use it. How we portion out our time to different activities, tasks, duties, obligations.
Are we controlling our time or does it start to feel like our time is controlling us?
Then suddenly we may not feel so time rich any more but in fact we feel poor.
This is especially compounded if we work long hours or any hours at all in a profession, career, job, business, or even at home in a way that doesn't feel joyful. That work sucks at our souls. Creates a sense of being bound, stuck, disempowered.
So we begin wishing we had more time for the things that bring joy. For the people who we love. To be more creative. To take care of ourselves more. To be more conscious and aware in our lives.
This was me!
I used to feel this way. A slave to my to do list. It seemed I was adding more things than I was crossing off. I was spending a lot of time thinking and even worrying about being able to do everything I felt I needed to do.
But I learned to turn this around by practising a different way of being.
Two things that transformed my relationship with time...
Presence. Being in the moment. Practising Art of Feminine Presence. Being in my body. Allows me to bend time, to experience time in a way I didn't when I wasn't present. It creates spaciousness to feel good in the moment, get more done, connect into what I'm doing with so much more ease and joy. What practise do you use to be present in the moment? Does it feel good in your body to practise it? How can you make being in the moment even more joyful?
I have reframed time. I have reframed my sense of being in control of my life in many ways. One example is my "I don't have to do anything but I choose to do list". This concept, the name of it, the way I write out this powerful affirmation each time, the way I split it into categories, putting myself first, so much about this feels so empowering to me.
I choose what to do with my time. I don't put pressure on myself to get it all done. I think about what I'm doing in the day and don't over commit or over schedule myself anymore. Even on busy days I feel productive but like I can always take a break, pick some flowers, call a friend for a chat. This feels spacious, abundant, freedom!
The bottom line
The bottom line is we can create a sense of time freedom within ourselves first and soon...we just may start to see the impact in our material reality as a result.
What changes can you make to transform your relationship with time and create more of a sense of freedom in your life? What small thing can you do today that will make you feel more empowered when it comes to your time?
If you feel like its about time to make massive and lasting changes to your relationship with time and money then get in touch with me to find out more about the Her Money Her Purpose 12 week Transformational Journey starting 3 February 2015 in Perth. At the time of writing this there are 9 places left out of a possible 13. Will one of them be you?
To your happiness, time freedom and harmony,
What do Failure, Loss and Abundance Have in Common?
At first blush they seem so different.
Failure is a label we attach to outcomes that are other than what we decided was ideal.
Loss could be described as an experience of having something or someone that was loved, cherished or relied upon taken away. Grief is a feeling that often comes with loss.
Abundance is the sense of more than enough, enough to share.
I labelled my situation...
In the year I found myself labeling the need to take time out from work to look after myself as a failure. If you have you ever labelled yourself as a failure, even for taking a sick day, then you may be able to relate to this.
I needed to take time out as I was suffering “a touch of depression” as the doctor called it as part of the grief process following my Mother’s death.
I consciously choose to go down the route of counseling, rest and spiritual re-direction rather than medication. I wanted to heal the depression, move on from the grief and deal with unhelpful stored emotions and beliefs from childhood.
I am so grateful that I had the ability to make this choice, the money to take time out and the amazing people who I met who helped me through this extremely challenging and heart wrenching time in my life. I found an abundance of resources to assist me in this healing process.
Ready for life...not for this!
After a few months I started feeling strong enough to get back into work, I craved routine, stability and balance but I knew it wasn’t quite time yet to re-emerge with Journey to Abundance. I didn’t feel ready to hold the space for clients full time in the deep work that I do and I still wasn’t 100% sure what the Journey to Abundance re-emergence needed to look like.
I literally threw up my hands in the air, looked up and said “you show me how to do this. If you want me to help women with their money YOU show me what to do.”
It was within days of that request (command?) that I found a job ad and subsequently re-entered the workforce on a part-time basis. It may come as a shock to some who have been following me for a while to hear I went back to Financial Advising! And most of my clients were women.
I continued to work with a small number of private Journey to Abundance clients as well no more than I could be fully present with.
The company that hired me ticked a lot of boxes and the role felt like a near perfect fit. I couldn’t believe the energy and happiness this choice brought into my world...and then...
....I didn’t make it past month four of a six month probation. I was told my work was excellent but I didn’t fit the culture.
I guess you can’t fit a star shaped peg in a heart shaped hole. And that’s okay. But it did cause me to feel like a failure...at least for a few days...okay maybe a week...and a half...
If you have ever been sacked, fired, made redundant, or not had a contract extended, then you may be able to relate to that feeling of failure, even if your logical mind knows what happened isn't because you were not good enough.
And then...when the universe pushes the transformation....
If you believe at all in divine timing or if you have ever felt a push (which sometimes feels more like a nasty shove) to move towards your greatness then you may find it interesting that the job ended abruptly within days of me fully stepping into my calling and claiming "I am Suzanna and I am an Intuitive Financial Healer for wise and spiritual women".
This past weekend I was away attending yet another Art of Feminine Presence training in Melbourne and I heard someone make a comment about “people who teach abundance without being abundant” and that triggered such enormous feelings of failure once again.
It made me question “am I abundant”. Does everyone think I am not and that I am a failure...and worse a faker?? What right have I to "teach" about money when I clearly haven’t figured it all out?
It was Saturday night, the full moon was beaming down on the earth, storms were raging in Melbourne. I couldn’t sleep, I was thought possessed with the idea that I am a failure, and the feeling of embarrassment; “every one sees it except me”.
I also had a lot of worry that I wouldn't be able to "figure this out", "get it right", and truly be of service in the way my soul is calling me to be.
I was feeling exposed and ashamed. I didn't know how I would wake up the next morning and show my face.
Can you relate to this? Being thought possessed in the night? Overwhelmed with feelings and worry? Sorrow at the thought that your soul’s purpose won’t be able to be expressed and fear that the only option is to do something which is less than what you know you can do?
So what did I do? I pulled out one of the many techniques I use in my ***Intuitive Financial Healing*** with clients and used it on myself!
I used a simple belief change process which required me to confront the belief “I am a failure”. The allowed me to defuse the emotion of it and integrate it into my being. Within minutes the feeling shifted. I was peaceful. I went back to bed and fell asleep.
The powerful awareness
I learned something from this experience. Actually I learned a lot of somethings...
There have been losses in my life. But there really hasn’t been any failure.
Success literally means “that which comes next”. As long as we continue to take action and get some results we are creating success.
What I learned....
If I can make the choice to take time out because my good financial decisions of the past afford me this freedom then I am a success.
If I can throw my hands up in the air and ask for direction from spirit and follow it then I am a success.
If I can trust to re-enter a career, after 3 years, that I had all but turned my back on and nail the actual work aspect of it then I am a success.
If I can hold my head up high after they let me go and look back on my recent job with gratitude and warmth for everyone involved then I am a success.
If I can share my private struggles, what I have learned from them, and be this publicly vulnerable then I am a success.
If I can keep my dreams of helping women in my heart even when I am at the outer limit of what I think I can handle then I am a success.
If I can allow my work in Journey to Abundance to shift into something much deeper, step into and own that what I actually do is facilitate ***Intuitive Financial Healing*** then I am a success.
If I can be honest enough with myself to question my own integrity and remind myself that I define what success and abundance looks like for me then I really am a success. And I don’t need anyone else to agree with me to own that for myself.
If I have enough confidence, belief and inspiration to transform my self value, my self belief and my relationship with money and more than enough left over to share with you then I am abundant!!!
And I bet if you reached into your soul, into your truth, you would also find at least 1001 reasons why you are a success and why you are already abundant as well, even if it doesn’t always look and feel that way on the surface.
So what do failure, loss and abundance have in common for you?
To your happiness, success & harmony,
Journey to Abundance
The other day I was in an op shop in Fremantle browsing second hand t-shirts for my upcoming trip to Nepal. I heard a random radio commercial saying “Everything you have heard about money is a lie”.
This struck a cord with me - not because I believed it, in fact I resisted that assertion believing that at least some of what I have been told and studied over the last 15+ years about money must be true, and not because I wasn’t prepared to attend the F*R*E*E* property seminar they were spruking - but because I realised that a lot of what I have been told, and a lot of what I tell myself is not true. It is not in alignment with my highest truth about money!
The sh!t we tell ourselves
I know that I tell myself some stuff about money. I should be earning more. I should be spending less. I should I should I should...
I heard many “I shoulds” from women around me, sometimes not in so many words, but the essence of the shoulds are things like:
Does any of that resonate with you?
We beat ourselves up because of all the shoulds we have around money. And consequently the whole idea of money feels sh!t and heavy and distasteful - wouldn’t it be better to just avoid thoughts of money altogether?
My by pop through about my “money rules”
Today I was at a Weekly Women’s Circle I like to attend hosted by Cancer Support WA (to find out more go to http://www.cancersupportwa.org.au/weekly_program.html).
During the opening meditation I had a really powerful, exciting pop through. I realised I needed to make up my own “money rules”, by that I mean the ways of thinking about money and the “I shoulds” that I keep in place which limit my ability to experience joy and which feel restrictive.
(That’s right, even I continue to experience some of this stuff! Growth doesn’t end. If we were finished we would be ready to die.)
In this moment I was tuned in to my higher self. My inner knowing. My internal guidance.
And what came up was pretty amazing.
It has inspired me to create this blog and meditation so that you can all begin the process of creating your own true money rules.
My new money rules
What came up for me was very strong.
The new rules for money that evolved from my meditation were:
And though I already “knew” this stuff. What happened in that moment, when the insights came through in the meditation, was that I was able to begin to really embody the truth of these words.
I felt myself let go of fear of earning more money. I felt myself sink into acceptance about the money I am spending, in particular the money to go to Nepal. I felt lighter and freer about dating and my relationships with men.
It is amazing to me how healing and transformation can happen, in the moment, in real time, so easily, when we tap into our higher knowing.
I am so freaking inspired here is your F*R*E*E Meditation
Unlike the property seminar sprukers, who no doubt tell you free info at the seminar and then sell you on further services, I am gifting you this meditation with no strings attached!!!
You don’t have to sign up for my email list. You don’t have to book a session with me. You don’t have to share it with your friends.
You may choose to do any of that but you don’t have to.
This is my gift to you because I believe that together we can transform money consciousness and that a fabulous way to do this is by tapping into our own internal guidance and shifting the rules we are using which impact the way we play this game of life. And I also believe you don’t need me to make this happen - you may choose to work with me but you don’t need to - what you do need is YOU!
You can now listen to the Making Your Own Money Rules Meditation and start creating your new money rules. The idea is that you can refer back to whatever comes up here and continue to interact with money from this cleaner, more expanded place.
To your happiness, higher truth, and harmony,
Journey to Abundance
Do you feel like you are ready and willing for something wonderful to come into your life right now?
Do you feel a little impatient that the thing you desire hasn't f*&%ing showed up yet?
If so read on as it could provide you with a fresh perspective on that.
How to make something happen
To make something happen (or to manifest it) we require to have a strong desire for the thing to happen. We also require to really believe or expect that it will show up.
From there we require to let go. This means letting go of both when it will happen and how it will happen.
(As I type this I am sitting in the Apple Store, aware of my desire to pee, waiting for a f&%^ing software update to complete so the "Genius" can double check the job is done and I can go...to the loo)
I want it! I want it now!
Maybe all ladies have a little Veruca Salt in them? Maybe we all can relate to that "spoiled" little girl who is putting her foot down and saying "the time is now!" (Own it sisters???)
Check out Veruca at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRTkCHE1sS4
On the one hand it is a very powerful message we are sending out when we put our foot down and say "NOW".
On the other hand there are times (at the Apple Shop?...other places as well) where we just don't get to control the timing.
Powerful change of perspective
To change your perspective, by way of "reframe" consider this.
Suppose you knew for sure that you were going to get what you desired, guaranteed, in six months time.
That's right in six months you will get the relationship, the job, the business, the home, the holiday. Whatever it is you deeply desire, you are getting it in six months time!
Once you get it your life will dramatically change forever and you will never be able to go back to the person you were before the thing you desired showed up. Your life as you know it now will be gone forever.
If this is the case my question to you is....how would you want to spend the next six months knowing that you can never, ever live these months again as your life will be completely changed? What would you want to soak up, relish, cherish, and appreciate about your current situation knowing it will never be the same again?
This question is worth pondering as this is the stuff of creating your life.
Feeling good now brings more good in
Feeling wonderful about your current situation brings in more wonder. It is one thing to know that intellectually it is another to connect to the feeling of what is wonderful right now.
As for me what is wonderful right now is that I have the freedom to up and leave this Apple Shop. :-)
To your happiness, wonder and harmony,

Do you ever spend too much time thinking about what could go wrong?
Do you wish you could just focus instead on what could go right?
I share with you my experience of working with a fun and expansive way of focusing on what could go right and opening up to amazing possibilities.
I spent all of last weekend at a workshop with brilliant artist Dawn Meader on my 2014 Mandala.
We got to play a “game” that I now call “what could go right?”. I realised this game is so much more than just a game, it has amazing potential to shift consciousness and open up to possibilities.
What could go right in pairs
The first day we played this game in pairs, each woman named three things that could go right for the workshop.
The great thing about naming three is you might begin with naming things that are really easy to imagine. But there is something about having to come up with more than one thing that makes it easy to start expanding your consciousness beyond the ordinary.
For example what could go right for me was:
For me there was a real deepening to the point where I got teary eyed on the last “what could go right” when I realised how special it would be to me to feel that connected and how much I was already operating, in some ways, from a place of conclusion that I couldn’t have that, that it wasn’t possible. I was denying myself the possibility because my OLD programming already “knew” that someone new won’t be able to feel as connected as women who have known each other for a long time. It just “isn’t possible”.
The woman I was paired up with smiled her beautiful smile at me and said “that is already happening”. She reflected back to me what I wanted to go right so strongly, and showed me how that was already happening and I immediately opened up to the possibility and spent the entire workshop feeling very connected to the other women even though I was a newcomer to the group. I felt totally accepted for who I was, connected to them and most of all not the least bit needy for approval from anyone.
What a revelation!
What could go right as a group
The second day we played again as a group. This time one woman would start by sharing what could go right for the year and then one or more women would jump in adding on even more possibilities of what could go right for that woman.
That was a powerful process as well. I noticed that as the process went on it was easier and easier to come up with things that could go right for the other woman, and many of us displayed a strong urge to want to share the what could go rights that we came up with. I found myself feeling happier and happier feeding the desires and what could go rights for the other women.
My turn came last and I shared what could go right would be that I would be more myself this year than ever before, sharing myself more openly than ever before and not being afraid to show myself as I am in any given moment even if I am teary, upset, etc.
This doesn’t mean I will let my emotions run the show and cry at the grocery store just because I feel like it, what is does mean is that I won’t live in fear or shame of crying at the grocery store, at a women’s circle, or even on a date. I may choose not too but I won’t shut down the possibility because it is “wrong” to do so.
As I shared this desire for what could go right I started to cry as I realised how much my soul wants to share itself with the world. How much my soul is crying out for truth, vulnerability and intimacy in that way. How much I have been shutting that down.
The women fed back to me that sharing my true self with them was a beautiful gift and they appreciated it.
What a revelation!
A rampage of what could go right
Sunday night I attended a women’s circle where each woman was encouraged to bring something along to share. Although I had brought a copy of a poem I wrote called “The Red Button” and one of my intentions is to look for opportunities to share my poetry, it felt right in the moment to share the “what could go right” game.
We played as a group similar to how we did at Dawn’s workshop except we kept the rampage of what could go right until we were tapped out of ideas. We just kept going and going and going.
It was amazing to see the energy of the group lifting. What I realised then was how much difference in made starting the sentence with “what could go right” rather than “what will go right” or “what should go right”.
Stating what could go right lifted the woman’s energy and the groups collective energy, what should or what will go right depressed the energy, it was a statement of “fact” a conclusion rather than a vision. Even stating “I hope you get that” was less uplifting than “that could happen”.
I also noticed that when the “what could go right” was focused on experiencing positive feelings, achievements or experiences of growth and giving back, the woman’s energy lifted. When the “what could go right” was focused on material things there wasn’t nearly the same reaction.
What a revelation!
What could go right home play
What could happen if you were to play “what could go right” on your own, with friends, with family, co-workers or business partners?
What could happen if you started each day listing three things that could go right that day?
What could happen if you made a list of 100 things that could go right this year on your own, with a partner or with a group?
What could happen if you focused on what could go right in terms of your feelings, achievements and giving back in a way that your soul is longing for?
What could happen if the people in your life fed that desire back to you and intensified it?
What could happen if you started asking all the people in your life what could go right and feeding their desires?
What could go right?
To your happiness, things going right and harmony,
