I’m in Idaho, as many of you know, and this journey of following my soul never ceases to amaze me. I’m always amazed at what I learn, how I grow, what I uncover, and which books come into my life at the perfect time.
One of my favorite things to do when I move from town to town is check out the local bookstores. If they’re used bookstores or at least have a used section, even better! I always seem to come across the perfect book when I browse the metaphysical section of a bookstore. This trip has been no different.
The book The Celestine Prophecy* continued to come into my awareness. A friend told me about it months ago (long enough ago that I actually didn’t remember she had told me about it). Then, as I was on a virtual community get together through my spiritual community, another women said to me, “Have you read The Celestine Prophecy? I think you’d really love it!” When I went back to Nevada City, CA for a few nights, I came across it in the local bookstore (although not used) and I ended up deciding on another book that day. Then, once I got to Idaho, the original friend who had told me about it posted about it on her Facebook page and I decided in that moment that if I saw it again, I would buy it.
Naturally, I went out to explore that day and decided to seek out the local bookstore. I walked upstairs to the metaphysical section (which also happened to be in the used book area) and there it was. In fact, there were two copies side by side. So, I bought it.
As soon as I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. You’ve probably read it because apparently, everyone and their mom have read it. Regardless, let me share with you how this book has confirmed everything I have already known to be true as well as has validated all the work I’ve done on myself and put out into the world the past few years.
I’m not even through the entire book yet, so I’m sure I’ll have more to say, but I’m currently through the 4th insight described. The insights explain the awakening process beautifully. What really struck me was the explanation of energy and how we go from trying to control and manipulate connections with others in order to “get” energy from them to learning that we can actually tap into Source in order to receive the energy we’re craving.
We’re all energetic beings and everything in our world is made up of energy. Everything we engage with fills up or depletes our energy, before we learn that we can tap in directly to Source (aka God). This is especially true when it comes to engaging with others. When we’re dependent on others to make us feel better (codependency), we go into relationships and conversations with others trying to control the energy of the interaction.
As I reflected on this, I realized how it directly correlates to business. That, my friends, is traditional sales and marketing and it’s what I’m no longer available for.
For the past 3 years, I’ve been on an intense deep-dive, learning and teaching how to give to ourselves what we’ve been relying on from others for most (if not all) of our lives.
For years I struggled with not only making money but with understanding how money works. Even now, I have moments where my financial flow is inconsistent and I held a lot of shame around it for far too long because I wondered, “Who will view me as successful if I’m not making X dollars?”
The truth, though, is that money does not determine success. Money is just energy and we use it, oftentimes, to feel better. Most of our society uses money the same way they use food, alcohol, drugs, and relationships – simply to feel a certain way because they’ve never been taught how to control how they feel from within.
So the question I took to my journal this morning was, “What if having money is not what makes us successful? What if being more evolved is?”
Do you know how to access any feeling you desire any time you want to feel it? Do you know how to feel better without the use of food, alcohol, drugs, money, or other people?
If not, that would be a beautiful place to start!
And that, my friends, is the exact work I do with my clients.
