When I first set out to learn about how to take my small creativity and meditation workshops and put them on the internet and let them be my, like, real actual income, I sought out coaches and mentors who were making real money.
That was one of my main criteria for wanting to work with someone: how much money do they make?? Because if they have figured out how to make a lot of money online surely they can help me do the same.
Now all I can do is smile in embarrassment about how naive I was.
The truth is, size doesn’t matter.
What you need to live a happy, inspired and meaningful life is different than what I need.? More is not better.? Just right is best.
I’ve stopped reading all blogs where people talk about how much money they make, and use it as a selling point.
Not only am I not interested,? I am turned off by the energy that’s driving it and the message behind it.
I think they’re missing the boat completely.
The trick to money isn’t about hitting certain numbers.
It’s about being in right relationship with it.? FLOW. LOVE. CREATIVITY.
About how much easier it is to grow a dream when you can give it the material things it needs.? About how much sparklier life is when you’re indulging in the exact kind of soulful self-care that fills your well, and not making compromises in order to save money.
Because when you’re making compromises in order to save money, you’re out of alignment with the richness of your soul.
You can feel it, how you’re pinching yourself off and collapsing your brightest possibilities. And it hurts.
But you live in a world that is profoundly fucked up about money, and you don’t want to go over to the other side where it’s all about the money and not about the love, so it’s hard to even know that another way is possible.
Most of the problems of creative dreaming are actually money problems.
- Like wanting to earn a certain amount and getting caught in a pattern of needing external validation.
- Or playing the martyr.
- Not having time for your dreams because you’re giving all of your energy to a job that does not make your soul sing.
- Dulling your dreams down because you don’t have the right space for the kind of creative work you really want to be doing.
- Playing small, thinking this is financially safer.
- Putting your dreams on hold until that magical day when you’ll suddenly have more money.
- Not quite trusting yourself to do that thing you really want to do and find a way to make it work financially.
- Not seeing the infinite possibilities that swirl around you in every moment of your life because you’re afraid of what may happen if you go after them.
What it really comes down to is trusting yourself to create an outer life which is in alignment with your inner magic.
EMPOWERMENT. TRUST. ALIGNMENT.
I’m not going to promise you some ridiculous 3 step program for overcoming all of this, but I do want to invite you to come and explore it with me, and with other committed creative dreamers.? Together we can bring in the superpowers of love and healing and transformation.
My Creative With Money e-course uses creativity, imagination and play to lead you around the very sticky terrain of exploring your inner relationship with money and laying the foundation to create a whole new money story for yourself.
I can promise you that you’ll meet money in a totally different way – this is not like anything else out there.
And I can promise to be there with you on the journey.? I’ll be active in the class forum, answering your questions, helping you get through the stuck places and cheering you on.
I know you can do this.
Creative With Money e-course starts on April 3 (this Thursday) inside the Creative Dream Circle.
When you join the Circle you get an annual membership.? This means you get ALL of the courses I run all year long.
One year from today you could be living in your new money story – the one that’s all about love and flow and creativity and possibility and magic.
