Follow the clues…..

Follow the Clues…..

We are nearing the end of 2014.  It’s always an exciting time.  Enjoying friends and family during the holidays.  Taking that much needed time to chill out, recharge, and dream even bigger dreams for 2015.

Many of you might be wondering how come the ideas are not coming as fast and furious as in years past.  This year, 2014, was one of the more intense for self exploration, getting clear on what you DO want, and also super clear on what you do NOT want.   It has been one of intense spiritual learning and awakening.  A few weeks ago I gave an exercise to close out the year so that you honor what you has happened to you and become very aware.  (If you missed that one, check it out here on the blog)

So, in these last few days, this is the message I have been getting to share with you.

Get inspired…and follow the clues!

Over this past year, new people have been put in your path.  Ideas have popped up.   New ways of working in your business and life are emerging.  And I can almost guarantee that a lot of these things were not expected.  They just showed up.  And the rest of the year was for you to become the person you needed to be in order to take action on these great clues.

So….take the time today (it’s a great day for inspiration) to dig a bit deeper.  From a place of inspiration.

Light a candle, grab some tea, do a short meditation….and let the thoughts pour out.  The connections emerge.

Here are some questions to get you started (and then you can take it from there):

Who inspired you this year?

Who drained you?

What trainings, ideas, thoughts energize and deeply inspire you?

What new self care routine do you get to adopt?

What advice have you repeatedly heard (or said) this past year that now you get to make part of your daily life?

 

What makes you feel totally ALIVE?

 

When you connect in spiritually…..when you let the energy move you….when you honor what shows up…..everything moves at a speed that is unheard of.

That’s what 2015 is all about.  Make sure you are ready. 

Take the clues from this year.  After all, that’s what this spiritual year of 2014 was about.  TRUST.  And you made it.  So, get the clues and in 2015 you will know where to plug them in.

It’s getting exciting, isn’t it?

Enjoy your  day, and happy new year to you all!

P.S.  I love to hear your comments on the blog.  Please share what comes up for you.  Hugs to you all.

Timing Is Everything!

Timing Is Everything!

This week I gave a teleclass on the energy of 2015, and one of the ideas I spoke about was how to close out 2014 in style.   This year has been amazingly insightful for everyone.  Intuition is picking up.  We just “know” things and wonder where the insights came from.  For some, 2014 was a huge challenge, a wake-up call, or a testimony to the fact that you are doing what you need to be doing.

Wherever you are on that spectrum, it’s time to start closing out 2014 with compassion, gratitude, and most importantly awareness.   When you can see your patterns with extreme clarity, you will not repeat them (unless you consciously choose to do so).

Take some quiet time, create your own sacred space in whatever way that is.  Light a candle, burn some incense, have coffee, tea or wine…..and of course, chocolate does wonders.  :)

Go over every single month this year.  Write down what were the wins, the challenges, your energy level.  How was that month for your life, and your business? (Yes, it is important to look at both because they work together)   Did one overshadow the other?  Now, take all those insights and uncover the true learning lesson for you.  How are you a stronger person?  What habits, behaviors did you leave behind?  When you took time off, did you notice your business pick up?  No matter what was going on, there is always a learning lesson.  Let it go with compassion and gratitude.  And for some of you, you might want to take the new habits into the new year with more awareness.

This article is entitled, “Timing Is Everything”.  And is about being in rhythm with your unique way of being, and seeing how that weaves together in the marketplace, and your personal life.

After I do this year long review with my life and business, I track when I have the most energy, when things flow easier for me.  That’s how I plan my business launches, as well as the time that I know I need to take for myself.  I find that when I don’t honor this process, things get challenging for me in so many areas of my life.

This year has been a soul searching year for so many.  And this month in particular is still letting go of what no longer serves the life you want to live, as well as the business you want to continue to grow.  For many, even though you feel a rush to accomplish great things, and make a lot of money, or whatever is your goal….you might hear a voice telling you to slow down.  Listen.  Reflect.  What has heart?  What does your heart want?  And then you can take aligned action.

Have any questions or comments?  Post them below!   I love interacting with all of you!  It’s more fun that way!

Much love,

Monica

 P.S.  When you really take the time to do this exercise, you will have cleared out a lot.  Many of you will notice more ideas pop up for your life and business that you couldn’t access before.  Letting go can be beautiful.  As long as you do it with grace, ease, compassion, and awareness.

Are You Trapped in an Old Dream?

This has been an interesting month for so many people.  Your intuition is really kicking in and asking you to take bold, creative, and innovative action with how you do things in life, as well as business.  And you are being asked to let go at a deeper level physically, emotionally, spiritually and/or in your business.

I have spoken with a lot of people lately who are trapped in an old dream.   Living an old paradigm.  So, what do I mean by that?  It could be a dream that you had years ago, that has seen its time.  A dream someone else had for you and somehow you took it on.  A dream for something different that just didn’t happen.   It can even be a specific launch that totally jazzed you, and you see it isn’t working.

The challenge is that when you don’t let go of those dreams, you become trapped, and unable to see the new one just right in front of you.  And it’s there.

Right now many people are being shown many new ways of doing things or total overhauls on what is possible.  And it seems scary even though it has massive potential for liberation.

 

Here are some things that will stop forward moving action

  • Not giving yourself time to meditate and get quiet to listen to your own personal wisdom.
  • Getting stuck in the idea that it has always worked before, so it must continue to do so, even though times have changed.
  • Fear.  What if….
  • Desperately grasping for the new thing.  When you grab, your fist is clenched.  And nothing can enter.  It’s the same with your ideas.  You need space for them to enter.
  • What will other people think?

I encourage you to take one thing in your business and life and give it a make-over.  Let go of how you did it in the past.  What needs to happen for you to connect at a deeper soul level?

Here are some ideas:

  • Revamp how you work with clients
  • Create new packages or programs that jazz you
  • Contact colleagues that you haven’t connected with for a while and get fresh perspectives.
  • Create a new organization system that works for you
  • Create new ways of connection
  • Create new sales copy that feels alive and gets attention

It’s your time to step into your new dreams.  Sometimes that means getting rid of some of the foundations in place.

Have fun.  Dream big, and bold.  And take action.  Your intuition wants your attention.

People are waiting for creative and innovative solutions right now.  They are tired of seeing the same thing out there with slightly different words.  How are you going to step into that space and be on the leading edge?   That’s where your destiny is…in life and business.  

 

Why Is Everything Such Hard Work?

Why Is Everything Such Hard Work?

You have heard it a lot lately.  Business building is hard work.  Life is hard.  Having a great relationship is hard.  It’s how we are wired.  To believe that when something is hard, then it is worth it.   To believe that suffering and struggling is noble.

We are gearing up for a year in 2015 when these things will be said more and more.   Many of you feel it in the air starting to percolate now.  A little bit more aggression, complaining about others, exhaustion, challenge, blaming, focusing on the negative, and…

Everything. Has. To. Be. Hard. Work.

Now, I’m a firm believer in aligned action, divine timing, strategy, and focusing on what truly matters to get amazing results.  If you are here to make a difference in this world, you need to take a lot of action.

And I have to admit….I also used to be a believer that everything had to be hard work.  And it got me exhausted, hair falling out, feeling depleted, depressed, and just going through the motions.  I was truly bored and uninspired.

It was a sign of slow soul loss.  A lack of creativity and a connection to deeper meaning and purpose.  And all of this does affect money, business, health, as well as relationships.

You are stepping into a time when you can create something amazing, innovative, profitable and fun with your business and your life.   In order to quantum leap your progress, it helps to know about the energy of the times.  As well as your own energy.

I will be sharing more as this year progresses to give you glimpses of the year to come.
