Showing Up: Podcast 10
Wanna know the single most important part of transforming your life for the better?
The part that makes weight loss, financial freedom, career success, and fulfilling relationships possible?
The part that defies all odds and is the exception to every rule?
That part is called showing up.
What do I mean when I say “show up?”
I mean staying present in the moment.
I mean focusing on the amazing and beautiful things going on in front of you right now.
I mean going inward and grounding yourself.
And I mean never giving up on your dreams.
Even if there are setbacks.
Especially if there are setbacks.
Because chances are, there will be.
I’m not saying this to bring you down, but setbacks are often a part of our journeys.
Abraham-Hicks would define such a setback as clarification in which way you should go.
And I love that.
Abraham would tell us that there are no bad circumstances, just circumstances that make us change direction.
Maybe you’re in a job with a boss who doesn’t quite get you.
They don’t appreciate all the hard working you’re putting in day in and day out.
You work and work to impress them, but no matter what you do, they never acknowledge or promote you.
You bend over backwards for this person – possibly for months or even years – but nothing changes.
At the end of your rope, you apply for another job or even decide to go off on your own.
So you get another job which is much more satisfying.
Or you use the skills your old boss never appreciated to go into business for yourself and become a massive success.
That setback was simply the Universe’s way of providing you with feedback on your life.
It was just the catalyst you needed to make a change. See my podcast on this here.
And once you realize that, your whole perspective changes.
Or it can.
If you show up.
Showing up is all about paying attention to the feedback you’re constantly receiving.
Not to say you can’t have a bad day or even a bad week without it necessarily meaning you need to pull up stakes and start all over.
But if you find yourself running into one brick wall after another or repeating the same frustrating pattern again and again…
It may be time to evaluate what the Universe is showing you.
Speaking of patterns…
Maybe you find yourself dating the same type of incompatible person every time you seek out a long term relationship.
Someone who cheats or lies or is emotionally unavailable.
Part of showing up is being aware of the decisions you’re making and why you’re making them.
If you keep dating guys you ultimately can’t trust, examine that closer.
Why are you choosing those guys?
Are you rejecting other nicer, probably better matching guys to go out with one that’ll disappoint you?
If so, the issue could be about your own self-worth.
If you don’t feel worthy of a real, long lasting commitment, then you’re unlikely to attract one.
Remember, what you send out is what you get back.
If the only vibration you send out is “I’m not good enough, I’m not good enough, I’m not good enough,” then the kind of person you’ll attract will reinforce that belief.
To avoid this, you’ll need to start showing up as the gorgeous, absolutely worthy spiritual being that you are.
- Write or locate some positive affirmations that really resonate with you and say them to yourself daily.
- Create a vision board full of images of your dream life.
You’ll suddenly find yourself unwilling to put up with anything less than a guy who truly deserves the amazing creature that you are.
This again, is called showing up.
It’s showing up for the real you.
The deserving you.
The eternally perfect spiritual you.
Let’s tackle another one.
Not have as much cash as you’d like?
I can relate.
But having money ultimately isn’t about the job you have or the family you were born into.
Even if that job is low-paying (or even nonexistent) and that family is broke.
It’s about how you feel about money deep down.
For money to come to you, for you to attract it, you’ll have to believe you are valuable enough as a person to have it.
If you don’t think you deserve money, it doesn’t matter what you do, because you’ll never be able to hold on to it long term.
Even people who become rich, whether through a job, lottery win, or an inheritance, won’t keep it if they believe they’re unworthy of it or fear they’ll lose it.
So much of showing up in your own life is your own willingness to change your mindset into believing you’re worthy of all good things.
That you’re smart enough…
You’ve earned it already.
You earned it the moment you were born.
Who amongst us would deny a newborn baby anything?
Just remember, you ARE that newborn baby.
God/the Universe/Source energy is all about loving you and giving you everything you could possibly desire.
All you have to do is show up for it.
