Welcome to Money Mondays. This is a weekly post to explore how Self-forgiveness can assist you in releasing old stories about money and stepping into greater financial freedom. I’m offering an online group in May on “Self-Forgiveness and Money”, so this is a great forum to play with techniques that we’ll use in the group—and hopefully, you’ll find tools to use in your own lives.
As part of the group, we’ll be choosing a financial project to complete over the 3 months. So for this Money Mondays, let’s talk about creating an ideal scene for a project that has heart for you! Here are a few questions for you:
What is a project you could do over the next 3 months to make positive change, e.g., in your finances, job, etc?
If you were wildly successful, what would be happening in 3-6 months? (or a time frame of your choosing!)
Pause and be still. Ask for inner guidance on what you truly want. What do you hear?
I encourage you to sit with yourself this week and journal your responses to the questions above. And if you’re ready, join me and create an Ideal Scene for what you want around money—let your love guide you. Share what you do with me if you want to!
Ideal scenes are a powerful way to create a vision for what you want. It’s a snapshot of how you see an area of your life at a particular point in the future, e.g. 6 months or a year from now. When you express what you want (even if you’re not 100% sure), you give it life inside and transformation can occur.
This morning, I did an Ideal Scene on my own personal project of transitioning out of my part-time job and expanding my professional coaching practice! I wrote it as if it were already happening exactly how I wanted.
I was resistant to doing this.
And I did it anyway. Because sometimes, the doing of it does it!
I learned so much doing this. I surprised myself with what I wrote. I had a limiting belief that “I don’t know what I want.” The truth is, somewhere inside, I DO KNOW. And when I took action and started writing, it was revealed to me. This is love speaking.
(That’s one of the most profound things about doing an Ideal Scene.)
This old story used to hold me back from fully taking action and expressing myself. I forgive myself for buying into that belief—and I step free.
Here are highlights of what I learned:
The foundation for what I do is divine inspiration and Self-care. Each day, it is SO important for me to be still and listen within, and to take good care of Debbie—eat well, meditation, exercise, etc.
The next step for me is to see the good in each person I serve and connect with and KNOW that as a coach, I simply help bring out what’s already inside of them.
I want a home with a fulfilling partnership to be a part of expanding my practice. This is a part of experiencing and expressing love!
The things that bring me JOY are: working with individual clients, speaking on forgiveness, and taking clear leadership in the field. And create abundance doing it!
My practice is based on giving—to myself and others. That includes celebrating the money that I make and spending it on myself generously!
And possibly the most important is the WHY? I learned that my purpose is to inspire people with the joy of living into who they are.
Next week, I’ll talk more about how Self-forgiveness can help you to get free from limiting beliefs that stand in the way of bringing forward your Ideal Scene. For today, I’d like to end with a quote on love:
“The experience of love cannot come from a book or be contained in words. It can only be experienced.” ~John-Roger, from Momentum: Letting Love Lead
Have a wonderful week!
