Your #1 job is to be the energy you want to attract

As smart, capable, successful humans we often make things more complicated than they need to be.

When really our only job is to be the energy we want to attract.

It’s true in business, relationships, and life.

When you vibrate at the frequency of the dream clients you want to work with, the money you want to receive, or the person you want to spend your life with…

…you become the magnet for that thing/person/experience. And it must show up in your life. It can’t not.

The rules are simple.

But where we get hung up is how do I BE that energy?

How do I know that I’m vibrating in the million-dollar CEO frequency?

How do I know I’m an energetic match for my ideal client?

How do I know I’m a match for my ideal partner?

How do I know before the proof shows up?

#1 You can feel it

When you close your eyes and breath into what it feels like to have that business, that money, that partner, you can feel your energy shift. That’s when you know you’re in the right place.

And then your mind comes in and starts to confuse things. Asking questions, throwing around what-ifs. Making you doubt what you know is true in your heart.

When that happens your job is to close your eyes, connect back in, and gently allow your energy to shift again.

As often as you need to until it’s done.

#2 You begin to see proof

Almost immediately the proof starts to show up in your reality. But you’re too busy looking for the end game result to notice the shifts that are occurring.

Someone reaches out to you on social media to say how much they love your work.

People start chatting you up in the grocery line more often.

You find a five-dollar bill laying in the road.

These “little” shifts are just the beginning. Your job is to notice them, collect them as proof that it’s all working out for you (because it is), and be thankful for how quickly the universe gets to work on your behalf.

It really is that simple. But we live in a world that tells us we’re crazy. That it must be harder than this. That struggle is just a way of life.

Well sure, it has been. And it can be if we continue to choose that.

All possibilities exist. We can have life however we want it.

But I know you want that big, bold, magical life. And deep down you know that it’s possible right now.

You’re over struggle.

You’re tired of busting your ass for little results.

You’re ready to live a fully free, abundant, magical life that surprises and delights you on the daily.

So it’s time to make a choice.

Are you going to continue second-guessing yourself, changing your mind, and falling back into doubt? Doing things the way you’ve been told they’re supposed to be done – through lots of hard work and struggle?

Or will you choose to unleash the full power of who you actually are? And watch as everything just gets so good and so easy. 

If you’re ready to choose differently, I’m here for it. 

The best thing you can do to back yourself in that decision is to surround yourself with people who are living, breathing examples of what’s possible. Ones that have done it and continue to do it. 

It’s hard to believe in yourself when you are surrounded by people who are fighting for the old paradigm of hard work and struggle. Having evidence of what’s possible and people cheering you on and supporting your new beliefs is such a powerful way to borrow belief until it’s so rock-solid in you that you wouldn’t dream of doubting yourself or your power.

This is why I do the work that I do. And why I believe so deeply in group containers. So you have the support system, cheerleading squad, and physical proof you need to believe in yourself and your magic.

If you’re ready to explore how you can join one of these spaces, click that adorable pink messenger icon to start the conversation. I’m here for you.

I’ve grown bored with predictability

In my 44 years, I’ve done some amazing things. I’ve prided myself on my intelligence, resourcefulness, & commitment. But I’ve grown ridiculously bored with figuring things out. With being able to predict outcomes.

And really with my own limited ability to dream.

I crave the feeling of having my mind blown on a daily basis. Of having things work out so much better than I could have expected.

I believe deeply in the magic of this universe, this life. And it’s magic I want more of.

So I’ve decided to commit my life to that. To open more fully to magic.

I want surprise, delight, & wonder.

Walking through life with my eyes open, knowing something magical is about to happen. Something so good I could never have thought of it on my own.

That feeling of expectation. The butterflies. The giddiness. I’ve had glimpses of it. And I want more.

I’ve grown sick of the rules.

I don’t want to consciously manifest every detail of my life from the limited perspective of my mind. I want to be surprised. On the daily.

I’m committed to magic. And to receiving miracles. No more rules. Or limitations. No more boredom.

A full unleashing of my soul. Of the power and magic and wonder that’s wanting to flow through me.

These are the spaces and experiences I’m cultivating. For myself. For my community. For you. Feeling the pull to magic and miracles? You’re in the right place.

Quantum Leaping in Life & Business

(Audio version available here https://anchor.fm/erica7823)

Mondays are one of my fav days of the week because I’m part of a Magic & Manifestation room on Clubhouse. Every Monday at 1 PM mountain time I hang out with some of my favorite people and we riff on all things magic and manifestation in our lives and businesses.

As you probably know magic is one of my most treasured core desired experiences.

During yesterday’s chat, we were deep-diving into quantum leaps. What are they, what do they feel like, how have we created them? It was a juicy and delightful conversation. I shared a story that I realized I haven’t shared with you yet. And it is gooooood.

In September 2019 I had set an income goal in my business that I was running hard for. It was a milestone I was dying to hit. At this point, I can’t even remember what the dollar amount was, but I do remember how attached I was to creating it. I’d made it mean all kinds of things about me.

  • If I don’t hit it I’m a failure
  • If I do hit it I’m a success
  • If I don’t hit it then all this manifestation talk must be bullshit (even though I already had all kinds of evidence to the contrary)
  • If I don’t hit it there is definitely something wrong with me
  • If I don’t hit it I must not be in alignment with my purpose
  • If I do hit it I’ll be able to easily create everything I’ve ever desired right now
  • If I don’t hit it everyone else is better than me
  • If I don’t hit it I’ll never make any money again and we will be destitute and living on the streets (drama queen much?)

And on and on and on…

I had created all this pressure on myself to deliver the exact dollar amount specifically through my business.

And guess what…it was really looking like it wasn’t going to happen no matter what I did. I was spinning out, trying to figure out how to make it happen, putting in the hours and the effort both in action and the inner work.

I was in a state of force and desperation.

I clearly remember the exact moment when I got frustrated with myself, threw my hands up, and said forget it. Actually what I said was “oh for fuck sake, forget it”. And I went and took a nap.

And that’s when the quantum leap happened.

While I was asleep on my couch, snuggled up under my blanket with my adorable dog at my feet, I was out of the way and the Universe got to work.​

I woke up to not 1, not 2, but 3 messages from new clients saying yes!

Clients that had been telling me they couldn’t afford it, they didn’t have the time, it wasn’t the right time because of whatever… Suddenly, in the space of 30 minutes, decided to reach out to me to say yes and get started.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe in coincidence. Not in the face of that much evidence.

There’s a lot of talk about quantum leaps, but there’s a huge misconception about what they are and how they happen.

Quantum leaps, by definition, defy explanation. They are shifts in reality so big that you couldn’t have made them happen if you’d tried. I couldn’t have figured out a way to find and sell 3 clients into high-level packages in 30 minutes. It’s impossible, it wouldn’t have been enough time.

But quantum leaps don’t make logical sense. If they did they’d be normal progressions 🤣

So how did I create this quantum leap?

  1. I was clear on the desire. I knew what I wanted. And this wasn’t so much about the exact dollar amount. What I wanted was to blow away my previous income in this business and show myself how easy it could be. I wanted to experience magic and miracles (which I obviously couldn’t if I engineered the how)
  2. I got out of the way. By throwing my hands up I inadvertently released all attachment and energetic control around how it had to happen. I let go and the Universe was able to step in and get shit done. And when I did that it happened quick.

That’s it. A two-step process to everything you desire.

And it can be easy when we let it.

This is where you’re probably expecting me to say and we all lived happily ever after, millions in the bank account, huge smiles on our faces, safe in the knowledge that we know exactly how to quantum leap whenever we want.

But the story doesn’t quite end like that.

I’ve gone on to use this two-step process to mixed results. Why? Because there are times when I tried to use it to control the outcome. Trying to force me to get out of the way so that I get the results I want.

Do you see the problem with that? It’s another form of attachment and control.

You can’t get out of the way and control the outcome. Those two states are mutually exclusive.

Our minds are brilliant, sneaky, problem-solving machines. Manipulative little bastards sometimes 🤣

And mine was manipulating me right into not letting things be easy.

So I went to my body instead. When I relive the experience of the quantum leap I shared with you, I can still feel what it felt like to throw up my hands. There was a rushing release of energy and space, a void, opened up in my body. It felt roomy in there.

I know now that’s what it feels like to me when I release attachment and make room to receive my desires.

It’s the pre-state to getting everything I’m asking for.

So for me to create quantum leaps I need that feeling. I know I’m on the right track when I feel it and my only job is to do something that lets me stay out of the way – like taking a nap, working out, or having a fantastic meal with family and friends.

Distraction and joy keep me from ruining it and hold me in a state of allowing until it’s done and I can see the evidence around me.

And now I really can engineer quantum leaps in my life, because I know how it works for me.

But we are all individual, powerful beings. And while the two-step process is the same for all of us, how we experience it might not be.

Have you created a quantum leap in your life? What did it look like? Feel like? What does it feel like to you when you release attachment and get in a state of receiving?

Not sure? This is one of the powerful processes I’m teaching in my high-level group experience over the next 12 months.

If you want to learn to predictably quantum leap your life I can’t wait to show you how. Inside of an intimate group container we’re going to deep dive into the unique way you cultivate and experience quantum leaps. It’s so freaking juicy.

I am lit the F up about walking you through this magic so you can create the fun, free, wealthy, lit-up life you’ve been craving by learning to master this skill yourself.

Do you know what you can do in the space of a single year when you master the art of quantum leaps???? 🤯 There is no limit.

So come join us and watch how juicy and exciting your life gets.

What have you got to lose except your limitations?

Message me directly to start your meteoric rise to greatness. Your time is now, babe.

I love you.

THE HIDDEN COST OF PUTTING ASIDE OUR DREAMS

Published in Thrive Global June 29, 2021

https://thriveglobal.com/stories/the-hidden-cost-of-putting-aside-our-dreams/

We’ve all heard it before. Quit daydreaming. Get real.  Be serious. Somehow as a culture, we’ve decided that daydreaming isn’t as important as doing. But what if there are hidden costs to always keeping our feet on the ground and head out of the clouds?

All new advances require “thinking outside the box”

Think about it.  What if Thomas Edison or Nicola Tesla listened to the people who told them they were crazy?  Would we still be sitting around in candlelight and using horses to commute?  

All new inventions require “thinking outside the box”, which is really just dreaming up a new future.  

All of the greatest inventors started with the idea that something new was possible.  They opened their mind to the possibility that life could be done in a different (and to them better) way.

They let their dreams lead their actions.  

Dreaming opens us up to a world of possibilities

One of the things that set us apart from every other living creature on the planet is our ability to think beyond instinct.  As humans, we can imagine outcomes and experience scenarios before they happen, simply by thinking about them.

We can experience life within our mind before it ever happens in the material world.  And this puts us in a magical position of “trying things on for size”.  Daydreaming allows us to see what it would feel like to experience something new and decide for ourselves if it’s something we want to pursue before we ever put any effort into it.

Dreaming increases our desire to create

When we have big dreams for our own lives, the lives of future generations, and humanity as a whole we have a reason to get up and do something important every day.  Our dreams fuel our actions.  They lead us forward.

When we don’t see a future that’s any better or different than our current state we have nothing to work towards.  We slog through our days doing the same things we’ve been doing, expecting the exact same results we’ve been living.  

We need the promise of a better future to inspire us to new actions and ways of being.  

It’s our ability to dream big that keeps us moving forward.  

That’s not to say that action isn’t important too.  But action without dreams will never lead us to a new and different reality.

How to use your daydreams of a better future to create that future

Step 1: Daydream

What would you like to experience in your life?  What do you wish for the future?  What do you want to leave as a legacy for future generations?

You have the unique opportunity to allow your imagination to run wild and see what feels right for you.

Step 2: Get Excited

Through your dreaming of possibilities you can find what really excites you.  And that excitement is what will get you moving.  

Feeling excited and passionate about a possible outcome is the fuel we need to get us up and moving.  It’s what keeps us moving when things feel hard.  

Stoke your excitement by dreaming of that future often.  

Step 3:  Take Action

Fueled by your excitement it’s time to get to work.  What action can you take right now to move you closer to your dreams?  Do it.

We don’t need to know the whole path, each step will unveil more steps for you to take.  Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed by trying to see the whole picture.  Just let yourself consistently move in the direction of your dreams, whatever that looks like for you.

Remember to celebrate every little (and big) step you take towards creating that future for yourself.   It’s a big deal what you’re doing, and the journey is worth celebrating.

And the next time someone tells you to get your head out of the clouds you can let them know you’re doing important work up there.

Following our passion is the path to fulfillment

How to stop working for a paycheck and start doing something that matters, leaves the world a better place, and makes you feel amazing in the process.

Published in Thrive Global January 23rd, 2020

https://thriveglobal.com/stories/following-our-passion-is-the-path-to-fulfillment/

The old system of working for a living and living for the weekend is becoming unsustainable for humanity.  As we continue to see the rise in mental health disorders and stress-related conditions and diseases the red flag is raised that something has to change.  

But what?

The stress and pressure of finding a good job, being financially stable, managing the bills, and all of our daily responsibilities can be a lot to shoulder.  But when you add on the feelings of discontentment, resentment, boredom, and pressure that can come from working in a job that doesn’t meet any of our intrinsic needs we can be left feeling hopeless, heartless, and unfulfilled.

These feelings often bleed into the other areas of our life, affecting our relationships and our ability to successfully parent our children.  They can lead to unhealthy eating patterns, lack of physical motivation, financial irresponsibility, and serious health conditions both physically and mentally.

Left unattended there can be dire consequences.

But why?

Why is it that we need our careers to also meet our intrinsic need to do something meaningful, make a difference in the world, and feel like we’ve created something worthwhile?  Shouldn’t the ability to meet our external needs (like paying bills and buying food) be enough?

While many of us were raised to believe in the value of hard work and earning a decent wage it’s just not enough for everyone.

Many of us are hardwired, either from birth or through experience, to need to feel like we’ve done a good job at something that matters.  And left unfulfilled we will spiral downwards.

If we feel unfulfilled in our current career what can we do?

The first step is to know what you are passionate about.  What are the things that light you up, set your soul on fire?  What are the things you would do even if you weren’t getting paid for them?  It might be things you haven’t done since you were a kid.  It might be things you do every weekend.  

There will be more than one.

Make a list.  

Then ask yourself what things are easy for you.  What comes naturally to you?  What skills do you have? What do you do so easily you might not even think to write them down because they are that easy?  Ask your friends and family this question if you’re stuck.

Compare the lists.  There will be overlap and commonalities between the two.

Now that you know where your zone of genius and happiness lies you can start to explore what you might want to do with these professionally.

Do some research.  Ask around.  Play with the possibilities.  How can you use what you have in a way that would make you money?  Maybe it’s a new business venture, a career change, or simply an adjustment to the way you work in your current field.

To be clear this doesn’t mean you have to quit your current job right away and do a complete one-eighty, although that might be exactly what you decide.  There is no one size fits all answer here.  This is a journey of self-discovery that no one can do for you.

Be curious.  Have fun.  Enjoy.

And know that you absolutely can have both financial stability and a sense of purpose.
