It was no coincidence that the day I realized my Q1 doubled from last year is the same day a beloved client mirrored to me, “It’s so nice to finally feel receptive & feel safe about it!” Mmhmm, I see you, universe. You’re cute.
Here’s the thing & it’s not all about cash. This is about being proactively open to whatever it is we say we desire, readying ourSelves to receive with as much attention as you might otherwise give your fears, busy work, heady focus, etc. Whatever you desire, business or otherwise, the quantum field wants to know:
Are you even open though? Have you given yourself permission to receive what you’re calling in? Because if not, it’s one big energetic ship stuck in the Suez Canal: nobody gets in, nobody gets out.
And since I’m always working on this receptivity myself, here come the cosmic pop quizzes to test my commitment. Turns out, saying no is just as activating of our availability to receive as is saying yes. As I’ve told many a client, this is the no that gets you to yes!
Saying no to misaligned clients, lowball offers, comparison-itis and compromising yourself fast tracks you to where all those dream clients, name-your-price offers, embodied self-belief & full body yes experiences await you.
There’s wanting something & then there’s creating the conditions for it to arise. It’s the parable in Eat, Pray, Love: the guy praying & praying to win the lottery until finally God says, My son. Buy a ticket.
As I responded to the above client relaxing into her receptivity, this is the part where you get to lean back, BE & receive. You’ve set the intention, you’ve bought the ticket, now allow.
Here are my top five tips to avail yourself to receive what you truly desire in your business, and frankly, your life:
Check your awareness
Turn toward what version of yourself is actually driving your business, and lovingly explore how open and available she is to receive. Notice fear-based decisions versus moments of expansiveness — even and especially those that stretch you — and cultivate the latter. Give yourself permission to receive what it is you’ve been pouring your energy toward — and watch tides turn in your favor.
Outsource to the unseen
In my world we work on the physical plane as much as we harness the infinite power of the unseen realms. You likely have a business team — VA, designer, copywriter, lawyer, accountant — but do you have an energetic board of advisors too? I retain a sacred council on the regular, for self-preservation, money magnetism, energetic clarity for client work and innovation and creativity. If you’re open to this, there’s nothing to “do”; rather, speak your desires silently or aloud and ask for support from who or whatever it is that’s greater than us. Start simply with something along the lines of, help me to allow myself to receive!
You already know the power of quick, clear decision-making in your business. Now you can continue to “yes” and “no” your way to aligned success from a higher perspective, knowing that every yes and every no is setting the path to what you seek. Get crystal clear and be relentless in paving your path.
Build a business altar
Even if you’ve never worked with altars before, they are potent tools to activate your intentions and support you in manifesting your desired business outcomes. All you need is a small space to hold your altar (mine is on my desk so it’s always in sight) and a collection of items representing your work, goals and success. Items may include written out goals or affirmations, ideal client profile jotted down or image of an ideal client, cash or money plant or equivalent, something that reminds you of your power and purpose, photos of what you’re calling in to your reality, and any energetic or spiritual accessories to activate it such as crystals, a candle, incense, etc. Try this and let me know what unfolds for you!
Make your work a spell
This is equally mystical and practical: know the power of your words. Spelling, speaking, writing, saying yes or no, how you think to yourself, heck, even those pesky web edits and emails can be vibrationally infused with your intention — simply by harnessing awareness of your thoughts and words. Perhaps you silently speak your intention upon your next round of copy, caption or newsletter so that it vibrationally carries your energetic activation; catch that pesky old tape of self-doubt and revise it to an inspiring mantra; write out (the most literal “spell-ing”) your ambitions, dreams and goals for your work. Try this, finish with “and so it is!,” sit back and see how very powerful you are in the seen and the unseen realms of your business.
