Money IS a Spiritual Path

A few weeks ago I called a local spiritual center and proposed a workshop on money mindset and learning how to receive. The receptionist hesitated. Cleared her throat. Then informed me that, as far as programming goes, they prefer to stick to “spiritual” topics.

Huh? It was a WTF/Scooby Doo moment for me. You know, the one where Scooby shakes his head vigorously, as if trying to shake some comprehension into his dumbfounded brain? While secretly thinking, “WTF?”

And my bubble was pierced again.

My bubble shields me from the collective “wisdom” that money is the root of all evil.  (Most misquoted Bible verse of all times, though I’m the first to admit I’m no Bible misquote expert,  Just acutely tuned into the ways we stop ourselves from receiving more money even while our souls urge us to expand in ALL ways.)

And I’d forgotten that there’s a deep current of mistrust of money that runs through our collective unconscious…a current that says you can’t have money and still be spiritual. That the two are somehow mutually exclusive.

Can we just peel back some layers on that misconception today and open ourselves up to another possibility?

Do let’s!

Let’s explore how having more money can actually propel us farther along on our life’s journey, if, in fact, it’s your desire to have more and make a bigger impact.

1.  Money is neutral.

It doesn’t have it’s own energy, only the energy we assign to it.

It’s the root of evil in evil hands. It’s the root of greed in greedy hands. And it’s the root of good in Oprah’s hands. And probably in your hands, too.

2. Desire is the Divine guiding you to your purpose.

The Divine speaks to us through our desires (which are different from our habitual cravings for things like cookies after dinner).

The deep desires that filter through the mindless chatter and that bubble up in times of stillness and reflection guide us to the places where only we can make a difference. They guide us to the people (or animals or plot of earth) who need exactly what we have to give.

If you desire money above and beyond what you need to meet your daily needs, consider that the Divine is calling you forth into a bigger role. (As opposed to listening to that chatter in your head which wants to save you by insisting that you’re greedy, which reminds me…)

3.  More money doesn’t change who you are, it enhances it.

It won’t turn you into a voracious, planet-ravaging consumer. Unless you are that already. Which I doubt or you wouldn’t have made it to point #3.

Money allows you fuller self-expression by allowing you to get past surviving and get on with the joy and freedom of actually thriving in this abundant world.

4.  Speaking of Oprah, money is really useful as a measuring tool.

It tells us how much of an impact we’re making on the world. More money, bigger impact. Imagine if all the wealth of the world were in the hands of spirit-guided people with big hearts and generous natures? WOW!

P.S. We’re not serving the Divine by playing small.

5.  Money touches every aspect of our lives, every corner, every nook, every cranny.

You can’t get away with not having it, so we may as well get right with embracing it and welcoming it and being willing to use it without feeling guilty or ashamed or like we’re leaving someone behind.

Spiritual life has evolved to include modern conveniences and our desires have evolved with it.

Why won’t we let our relationship to money evolve as well?

We don’t go a day without using it, thinking about it, making decisions based on whether we have it or don’t have it. It affects not just our career and business decisions, but also our relationships, our health, our environment, and, yes, our ability to connect with our souls and with the bigger Source, the Divine, Infinite Spirit.

Money IS power.  Woo Hoo!!  It’s time to allow it to flow into and through the lives of people like you who have gifts to share and work to do, work based on a higher guidance, the movement of Divine Spirit through you.

We are the eyes and the ears and the voices of the Divine and the Divine is ready for the collective unconscious to evolve. It’s up to us to allow and welcome and embrace that, so the Divine can get on with its work through us.

And, it just so happens, it’s going to take resources. It’s going to require money.

6.  Money flows when we flow, when we connect with source and say yes to following its guidance.

See if the Divine isn’t urging you to grow and expand. Do you need resources to expand?

Yes. Yes you do.

If you’re not sure what to do next or how to crack yourself open, why not start looking for your own money blind spots, the places where you stop yourself from welcoming and embracing more? The places where you talk yourself into staying small or staying broke?

Most of us need help to find those blind spots and blocks.

How to Get the Most out of Your Goal Setting

I bet you spent some time at the beginning of the year (way back 3 weeks ago) contemplating what you’d like to create and accomplish this year.  Am I right?

I do this every year and then promptly forget about those big ideas (because the ideas just keep coming and I get distracted by the next shiny thing).  Can you relate to that?

This year will be different!

No.  Really.

I’ve been thinking about this and, what do you know, I have ideas!

In today’s video I share three tips for staying on track and making the most of your 2015 goals, plus a bonus tip at the end for speeding up the process.  So you’ll accomplish more and make more room for all those new ideas that just keep bubbling up and calling for action.

Woo Hoo!


Here’s the workbook I mentioned in the video.  Click on the pic to order.


Now what are you working on this year?  Leave a comment below and share one of your shiny 2015 goals.

Writing it down makes it real!

How to Fine-Tune Your Dream Machine

Y’all know I’m all about sending messages to the Universe.

And the clearer the better.

Too much waffling or too many mixed messages (like, “I want to make $108,000 this year, but I’ll settle for $20,000) confuses the Universe just enough so that it will go help someone else while we figure it out.

“It” being the thing that we truly desire.

I wanted to share a quick tip today about what looks juicy and doable to the Universe.

Actually Five Things You Need to Create a Well-Formed Desire that will have the Universe leaping into action for you.

Doing cartwheels.

Bending over backwards.


Make it positive.

Tell the Universe what you want, not what you don’t want.

Focusing on what you don’t want only magnifies the energy of that unwanted thing, drawing it to you like stink bugs to the sunny side of the house in winter.


Make it self-referential.

It’s your dream…you envisioned it and you maintain it and it doesn’t depend on having anyone else change so that you can have what you want.

If you think, “If only this person would do this or be more that…,” it’s time to revisit your vision.


Make it achievable within a certain time frame.

It’s great to have a long-term vision, and it’s even more exciting to have stepping stones to that vision that are achievable within a shorter time frame.

Every small step taken towards a bigger picture dream keeps us motivated and moving.

Along the same lines…


Cut it into bite-sized pieces.

Chew.  Swallow.  Repeat.

Too big a bite may lead to choking, so make your bites big enough to satisfy, but small enough to nourish.


Know how it’s going to tickle your senses.

Take time to describe your dream in great sensory detail.  What will it look like?  Will it have a taste or a smell to it?  How will it sound?  And, super important, how will it feel?

When you know these sensory details, you will be the first to recognize that your desire is starting to take form and become real.


And, can we get a little woo-woo for a second (because it’s been a while, and I’m on a roll with Universe-talk)?

Loading up those sensory details is High Vibration Manifestation Mojo.

Yep.  Woo.  Woo.

It’s like plucking the A string on one guitar and having another guitar’s A string start to vibrate.  It gets you in tune with your desire so that your desire starts to vibrate right along with you and before you know it, you and your desire are like Simon & Garfunkel, all in tune and harmonizing and completing each other musically.

Totem of the Week: Horse

Like lots of little girls, I was a fiend for horses.  I knew all the breeds, doodled them all over my notebooks and, most embarrassingly, made obnoxious kissing noises from the back seat of the Pontiac LeMans every time I saw one out the window. Every time.  We lived in Texas.  This must have driven my parents insane.

Arabians were my breed of choice, and to this day I make a point of driving by the Arabian farm east of town and try to catch a glimpse of these elegant creatures.

Horse represents travel, power and freedom.

No wonder I love them!


If a horse has galloped into your life, expect new journeys, both real and metaphorical.  Horse teaches you to explore new directions and to keep moving if you feel stuck so you can expand your vistas and your choices.


True power is sharing your gifts, talents and abilities, unfiltered and unabashedly.

True power is the ability to move gracefully through the world while expressing the truest possible version of you.

If horse has come to you as a totem, it’s inviting you to step into your true power.


Freedom of expression.  Freedom to choose.  Freedom to let go and ride in new directions.  Freedom to say No.  Freedom to say Yes.

Where do you need more freedom in your life?




As for Arabians:  they teach “accept the challenges before you so that you can experience the euphoria of success.”

(From, where you can find more about specific breeds that you find enchanting or that have come into your life.)

What’s your animal totem?   Leave a comment and let me know what animal has always spoken to you or even what’s been  popping up a lot lately.

Good News! There’s No Such Thing as Self-Sabotage

I love a paradigm shift!

Here’s a keeper I’m learning to love because it’s helped me revisit some situations in my life and see them with fresh eyes.  Like I put in the contacts I didn’t know I needed.

Everyone is winning the game they are playing.

This didn’t make a lot of sense the first time I heard it.

Partly because it was followed by this gem:

There’s no such thing as self-sabotage.

Excuse me?  Come again?  I like to think I know a thing or two about self-sabotage.

Sabotage means “the act of destroying or damaging something deliberately so that it doesn’t work correctly.”

The good news is…

When we seemingly sabotage ourselves, it’s not deliberate.  We really can’t help it because there’s a force greater than us that lives in our heads and takes the wheel when it thinks we’re doomed.

Which should come as a huge relief.

Perverse, I know.  But true. 

Relief because we can officially stop hating on ourselves for not following through on our resolutions, plans, goals, dreams.  For bumping up against that wall and letting it stop us.  For not doing more, being more, succeeding more, trying more.

We can officially start being more kind to ourselves because we’re not broken.  In fact, we are working perfectly, as designed.

Our methods just might be a little old school, that’s all.

Have you ever been really close to getting something you want and then done something dumb that derailed the whole forward momentum you’d built up?

Quit, for example, (because something wasn’t perfect)?  Compulsively ate the pint of gelato?  Threw a mortifying tantrum at someone important?  Shopping spree!!  (Just as the credit card balance finally hit zero)?

These are some classic hits from my repertoire.

It’s what we’ve all come the think of as self-sabotage.

We’re winning the game we are playing.

What’s really going on is we are playing, and winning, a game that we’ve been playing for so long that it feels safe even if it hurts us.  It feels like we only have that one option and that there are no other choices.

Take my game of binge shopping and credit card debt.  Nordstrom’s and Lululemon were like heroin to me.  I still feel the pull of their siren song.  Sigh.

The game might be that I’ve linked cute clothes (and upscale labels) with belonging to a certain group of people.  I’m trying to fit in.

Or the game might be that credit card debt was a secret that my mom shared with me, but kept from my dad.  A part of my brain still links credit card debt to mother’s love.

Or the act of shopping itself was a way to numb intense emotions.  I needed to be numb in order to survive another day in a job that made me cry or a relationship that had gone to the South Pole.  So I shopped, and felt better for a moment.

It’s a matter of programming.

The unhelpful games we play with our money or our health or our loved ones are usually habitual and deeply patterned in our brains.  When I’m triggered, I’m preprogrammed to log on to Zappo’s or polish off a bag of ginger snaps.

That’s why simple resolve, or willpower, won’t work on some of the games we’ve been playing for years.

Our brains are convinced that the games we are playing—the binge eating, binge shopping, discomfort with having more than a certain amount of money in the bank—are what we HAVE to do to maintain a sense of love or to stay safe or to be part of our clan.

Willpower alone won’t be able to tear us away from those games.  What we are experiencing is, on some level, exactly what we want to be experiencing.

What we need for healing, growth and success are new games that keep that love, safety and a sense of belonging intact.

It’s not about getting rid of unwanted behaviors by overpowering them.

It’s about creating new choices that feel aligned with our desires and still totally doable.

It’s about designing some new games and learning to play them with joy and enthusiasm.

It’s not a DIY project (says the former queen of attempted DIY personal growth, aka, the queen of the “fakethrough”).  Coaches and mentors are game designers that help speed you to your highest potential.

Growth is complex and messy and full of tangles.   It takes a little time to loosen the threads on the old games that are so easy to play.

But how exciting and gratifying when the work clicks and you start to make different choices without even having to think about it.

Dare I say, it’s game changing?


Are you ready to start changing the games you’re playing around your money mindset, so you can make the amazing money you deserve?  I’m here to help!!  Schedule a complimentary Money Mindset Breakthrough Session today.  It’s a No Fakethrough Zone.






The Secret about the Second Step on the Path to Prosperity

Okay, what comes after you decide what you want?

What’s next after you declare you want more money coming in? Six figures a year.  Seven!  Passive income enough to work ten hours a week?  Work that feels like play so you don’t even know you’re working because it’s so fun?

I want all those things, too!

Sometimes deciding what you want is exhausting.  And it’s only the first step!

Now is not the time to take a nap, though.

The second step is waiting and it’ll feel like you got off the Mexican bus with the chickens and the purple fringe dangling above the window and into a sleek Porsche.  On the Autobahn.

The second step doesn’t go in a direction that seems intuitive, so I wanted to share a secret about step two on the path to making the dream of amazing money come true.  Or any dream, really.

Here’s the secret that puts gas in the tank.

After I answer the question, “What do I want?” and come up with a satisfying answer that rings true and that compels me to keep going, it’s the follow-up question that puts gas in the tank for me.

After answering, “What do I want,” I ask, “What will having that do for me?”

That question is high-octane!

Keep asking, “What will having that do for me?” and be curious about where it leads.

It takes you to a deeper place beyond the surface desire of more money or less jiggly upper arms or a lucrative career as a hoop dancer or a soul-mate that’s really a soul-mate this time.  Or a safe trip on a Mexican bus.  (BTW, if you have to travel on a Mexican bus, DO NOT Google “Mexican bus.”  Scary.)

Going to the Promised Land in a Porche

That question—”What will having less jiggly upper arms do for me?”— will lead to the promised land.

The promised land is actually a feeling state that you are really craving when you say you want what you want.

Here’s an example:

Personally, I want to be be able to receive money more easily, specifically $10,000 over the next 30 days.

“What will having that do for me?” I ask myself.

It will allow me to take a course I really want to take.  It will allow me to quit my day job.  It will allow us to finish our kitchen remodel.

What else?

It will allow me to feel like I’m walking my talk, like I deserve to call myself a Transformational Money Coach, to feel authentic in my work, to feel real.

Great, you’re getting in there.  Go deeper.  What else will having that do for you?

I’ll feel more confident in my work.  I’ll feel more secure.  I’ll feel worthy.  And, I’ll feel relief.

Being able to receive money will help me trust the process and believe that I’m always taken care of, that the Universe has my back, that I’ll be able to achieve what I’m here to do in the world.

It will ease the stress of me feeling like a fraud for teaching people about money and wealth consciousness when I haven’t straightened out my own money story, when I still have my own blocks I’m working on, especially that one that says I don’t deserve it, I’m not worthy, I’m not good enough, yet.  (Clouds part, angels sing.  I’m uncomfortable, but this rings true.)

It will help me feel okay with where I am on my journey.  And it will help me trust deeply that when I’m open to receiving, the money flows easily and effortlessly.

So what is it that you want?

I want to feel like I am exactly where I need to be now in my own journey to prosperity and I want to feel like my experiences have value to my clients.   I want to feel okay and supported by the Universe.  And I want to feel like I deserve the goodness and the abundance that life has to offer.  I want to value myself and my work deeply.

Phew!  Excuse me while I take a breath.

Ultimately, it’s really not about the money or the being open to receive.

And all those things I really want—to feel okay, to feel free to be who and where I am right now, to feel authentic, to feel like I’m contributing even though I’m not perfect?

I’m sure I can find other ways to start experiencing those feelings in my life even before I manifest that $10,000 and exploring those other ways might be a good next step.  But we’ll save that for another day.

It’s messy, yes.  And a little uncomfortable.

But answering the question—What will having that do for you?—gets me closer to my core desired feelings (as Danielle LaPorte would call them).  And it’s given me some glimpses into where I might still be stuck, what I might ned to let go of to get to that feeling state I crave.

So, what is it that you desire, Sweet Pea?  And, more importantly, what will having that do for you? Please let me know in the comments below.

Forever on your side!!



Like a Pea Without Its Pod…How to Plump It Up Again

Baby Birds Don’t Apologize For Wanting More

A pair of red-breasted woodpeckers is raising its family in the old apple tree in our backyard.

That tree has harbored a screech owl nest, sheltered songbirds and given food to everything that’s passed through the back yard, from squirrels to bears to yellow jackets.

It’s been falling down, limb by limb, over the past few years.  Even as it sheds its limbs, though, it still drops enough apples to feed an elephant.


It keeps giving.  And the rest of us receive it’s gifts.  Like Shel Silverstein’s Giving Tree.


Still standing.  And expanding.
Still standing. And expanding.  Looks like an elephant, in fact.

We are born to live large.

Everybody wants something.  

It’s not just human nature, but the nature of all life.  Like those woodpecker babies with their voracious appetites, life seeks to grow and expand.

We are all born to become more, to live large.  Even as the apple tree falls down a section at a time, it is still expanding and still producing.  So many apples.

That’s why existing every day in a meaningless, boring day job is so quick to dim a soul’s light.

Because our souls want us to know more, to do more, to be more so we can give more.  We are born to shine more.

Expanding your wealth is natural.

Deciding to expand your wealth consciousness and, by extension, your bank account is part of this natural order of things.

I could expand my own bank account exponentially if I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say that it’s not spiritual to be rich.

As if poverty were somehow virtuous.

It’s disrespectful to the very force that gives life, the force that animates our soul, to embrace a life of poverty if our soul is calling us to expand and allow abundance to flow through us and out into the world.

What does your soul want?

Only you know how to answer that question.

But I invite you to answer it for yourself without leaning on old beliefs or culture or family patterns.  Root out the influences that nudge you to answer that question in a way that doesn’t ring true for you.

What does your soul want?  What’s best for your growth and expansion?

Do what’s right for you!

Some people thrive in a life of simplicity and are happiest when their basic needs are met without much fanfare or stuff.  To them, sitting on the porch eating a perfectly ripe peach is heaven.

Some, like Peace Pilgrim, put their material needs in the hands of a Higher Power and trust that everything they need will be provided to them.  And it is.

Others aspire to philanthropy, and for that, they need great wealth so they can give it to those less fortunate or invest in brilliant businesses that need capital to take off and fly.

You might want money enough to support artists that otherwise might starve.

Or money enough to buy organic food from local farmers whose values you support.

Or maybe you want enough money to invest in your own personal growth.  Because you know that by investing in yourself, you’re better able to inspire others.

It can't help itself.  It grows out of a crack in the patio.
It can’t help itself.    Crazy sunflower grows out of a crack in the patio!

There’s nothing wrong with wanting more.

Where are you on the continuum?

Explore your own soul’s whispers and shouts as you push through the jungle of stuff that isn’t yours.  Keep your mind open to what’s right for you.

How much do you want to earn?  How much do you need to be happy and to do the work you came here to do?

Your desires are messages from your soul.

What you long for is your soul’s way of telling you what’s possible for you and what it needs to do its work.

Your desires are the whispers and shouts of your soul.

Honor that communication.  Say yes to moving towards your desires.

This is sacred work.

Celebrating your desires may force you to expand beyond what you dared imagine as possible for you.

Remember, without expanding your lungs and drawing in a big breath of air, it’s impossible to sing.  (Tweet it!)

Without opening your wings and extending your reach, it’s impossible to fly.

Being rich is a spiritual path.  The degree of wealth may be unique to you, but treat as sacred every dime the Universe gives you to manage.

If your soul tells you that you’re meant to have vast wealth, open to receive it and start watching for opportunities that you wouldn’t have seen before, when you believed that being poor was the only way to be spiritual.

Let the baby birds be your role model.  They unapologetically clamber for more.  They’re wired to know what they need to grow and they demand nothing less.

Spiritual work is hungry work.

Open wide and receive what your soul needs you to have!

Manifestation 101: Dare to Dream


I had an unsettling conversation with a massage therapist recently.  She struggles on a daily basis to make ends meet.

She squeaks by month after month and has actually gotten used to the stress of that.  It’s just the way life is.  Her life, anyway.

I felt sad as I listened to her story.

She’d be massaging necks for the rest of her life because she’d been bad with her money in her prime earning years.  She’d never had a university education, so her earning potential was next to nothing.  The market was saturated, so she didn’t stand a chance.  (I learned that there are 6,000 massage therapists in our small city—that’s one for every 20 people!)

Some serious hustle will need to happen to make a living.

Or else some more serious excuses to stay of the game and stuck struggling.

Her big dream…

Her big dream was to be able to go the the movies once a month.

I gently pressed for more dreams and desires and she fought me all the way to, “Okay, fine.  I want a ground floor apartment so my clients don’t have to climb stairs.”

On the bright side, she was doing many things well.  No debt.  A little savings.  Spending less than she makes.  She acknowledged that the Universe always provides just enough to pay her bills and shop for food.  She even manifested a new car not long ago when hers went to the great junkyard in the sky.

Still, her big dream is a ground floor apartment.

What’s wrong with ground floor apartments?

Nothing against ground floor apartments, but do you see what’s so, so wrong with this picture?

She’s manifesting exactly what she wants and the Universe is providing exactly what she asks for.


Rather, nothing more that what she has already—just enough business to pay the bills; a roof over her head (no extra charge for the stairs); an opportunity to work the rest of her life.

Woo Hoo!

The really sad part…

Okay, the really sad part? She really is hustling to market her business.  Making cold calls, getting press, distributing rack cards, networking events, investing in a website.

In her efforts to change her situation and manifest more business, more income, she’s mastering the part that most people skip and skipping the part that most people master.

Now, I’m the queen of doing things in the reverse order, but our lovely therapist is neglecting to build a foundation for manifestation that no amount of taking action will make up for.

Before you take one step towards your dream, you have to have a dream.  (Tweet that!)

The dream is the foundation.

Without dreams, the Universe doesn’t know how to coordinate happy accidents, present serendipitous moments or open doors for you.  It won’t know which doors to open if it doesn’t know where you want to go.

The moment you decide what you want, the wheels of the Universe start turning.  One cog connects to another connects to a drive train connects to a fan belt connects to a wheel connects to the exact next thing that puts you closer to your dream.

That next thing may look like nothing to you.

It’s impossible to know.

What’s important…

It’s important to have faith in the magic of the Universe and to stay open to what presents itself.

It’s important to believe that the Universe doesn’t put opportunities in front of you unless you are ready to reach for them.

It’s important to leave the “how” up to the Universe and keep doing your part—dreaming your dream and taking actions.

No action is wrong.  If you go off course, the Universe recalibrates.

It’s important to know that having a dream, no matter how far-fetched it may seem, is your soul’s way of prompting you to expand into your greatness and to expand into your full potential.

Your soul yearns for expansion and growth.  Squeaking by in a top floor apartment and manifesting just enough to cover the bills denies your soul’s purpose and its desire for you—growth and wholeness.

Making amazing money isn’t bad.  It’s a way to honor your soul’s desire for growth and wholeness.  It’s part of your spiritual path.  (Tweet that, too!)

This is a belief that’s worth incorporating into your belief system!

Making amazing money is part of your spiritual path.

Just set a course and hold the vision and the faith.

Above all, dare to dream.
