Have you had a bad day? Did you bump into someone's parked car when you were backing down the drive? Did you get a bill 10 times what you were expecting? Did you find out the times had changed on an event you'd been promoting, an hour before it was due to start? Did you create a fight when you thought you were being helpful? Did someone else tell you how much rubbish you are? Did you have all of these in one day? Do you feel like crying? Having a stiff drink? Jumping off a cliff ? Or something else? If you'd like something else, ask “What's right about this I'm not getting?” Then ask “What would make me giggle right now?” Remember when you were five and everything made you giggle? Find ONE thing and pull that energy through you and keep looking for more things, until you lighten, smile and maybe even giggle. Even if it's to giggle at yourself for being Cute, Not Bright.
Are you comfortable with money? Or do you struggle with it and never seem to have enough? Even if you're not living hand-to-mouth, do you have the feeling you don't have as much as you need to do all the things you enjoy? Or perhaps you've defined the things you enjoy to fit within the limited amount of money you've decided you have available to you? What is your point of view about money? That it's greedy to have too much; there's not enough to go around; if I have a lot, someone else will miss out; I don't deserve it; it won't bring happiness? What else? Are these points of view true? They are if they are your point of view. Your point of view creates your reality. So if you'd like to change your point of view about money and create greater ease with it, ask “What is the value of having no money?” Whatever that is, destroy and uncreate it. Then ask more questions like “What have I decided money is?” and “What if everything about money was for the fun of it?”
Do you push yourself hard? Are you the sort of person who says “if I'm going to do this, I'm going to do it well and on time”? And do you keep going even when you're exhausted? Certainly you probably feel satisfaction in getting things done. How often do you find yourself a physical, mental or emotional wreck at the end of (or even during) the process? What if you could achieve an even greater result, without the physical, mental and emotional fatigue? If you'd like to find out what's possible for you, next time you notice you've set yourself a 'must do' – for example, exercise X days a week, get a new business up and running, meet a work presentation project deadline, ask “Body, would you like to rest?” Then listen to and honour your body. What if the space between your doing – your rest – was where your body, brain and being, relaxed to allow your ideas and energy to flow to you in even greater amounts?
