When Your Singular Work Leads You. ...

It’s amazing to hear how some coaches, mentors, gurus, motivational speakers talk about time. 

If you listen closely, they refer to time as something linear and chronological, with zero understanding of how time operates in the subconscious and affects your experiences now.

ESPECIALLY when it comes to interpersonal work which as some of you know is NOT linear.

“Just forget the past.” 🙄

When I see people spouting such oversimplifications, I see a SELLER not a leader.

This lack of understanding is also what informs their approaches that get limited results:

Do the opposite
Push through the fear
Feel the fear and do it anyway
Just do it
Just think positive
Just change your thoughts 

They might have their own marketing language or gimmick to dress and deliver these basic messages up, but it’s just that, BASIC.

It’s why so many programs and methods fail.

Yes, FAIL. 

They fail you because they are not honoring your singular wiring, your circumstances and experiences, and your desired aims for your work, your business, your relationship, your life, and *each* part of your money.

There’s a lot of nuance that goes into each of the things I named which requires getting specific about each; most importantly, your interpersonal dynamic to each.

But let’s talk about psychological time.

Do you know the difference between psychological time and chronological time?

Psychological time is the interval of time between idea and action.

Often what happens for many people when they feel “stuck”, resistance, and fear, they have a lot of unconscious programming that’s causing them to self-protect which can look like procrastination, delay, hesitation, doubt, neurosis, no follow through. 

It doesn’t always make sense, especially when it comes to the good things we want for ourselves  such as asking and receiving more money, raising our investments, following through on an idea/concept as there are always many steps and expressions that inform your decisions and actions, becoming more visible, vulnerable, and being truly seen, or leading in more powerful ways…all those things are seemingly very positive.

WHAT IS THE REAL CHALLENGE WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR MONEY?

How many times have you been told JUST TAKE ACTION when it comes to changing your money?

You should follow this method or that practice.

You should invest in this thing or that way. X amount of money X amount of times.

But taking the action is not the challenge; knowing what action to take for *you* is the real question.

"You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it."

The same is certainly true when it comes to your money.

If you blindly follow the copious amounts of information and advice related to money and business without FIRST understanding your own interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of money, you risk following a lot of guidance that does not serve you or is short lived.

If you want to experience a fundamental transformation in *each* part of your money and, therefore, Your Singular (Genius) Work and expression, you have to get to the root cause of any fear or resistance which cause frustrating patterns and results, especially that which you can't see/sense because they operate unconsciously.

This means uncovering your *specific* unconscious programming, beliefs, and even trauma that causes the unnecessary and distracting patterns.

**Fear of investing or spending money, despite having more than enough
**Overspending or poor management of your money
**Income plateaus or volatile highs and lows.
**Recurring debt cycles or increases
**Plateaued savings/investments
**Over functioning, overwhelm, chronic stress, exhaustion
**Perfectionism and fear of being visible and truly seen 
**The more money you make, the more anxiety or stress you experience
**Business/partner conflicts
**Repeated business mistakes
**Anxiety, guilt, shame, embarrassment, shyness related to asking or receiving more money
**Loss of energy, love, and/or excitement in your business

If you continue to experience the same set-backs/ resistances/fears, it's time to look and see what you're currently *not* seeing which is 30,000 more powerful than your conscious 'thinking' brain.

This has nothing to do with your intelligence and/or financial/business acumen. I have worked with successful bankers, financial analysts, business mentors who were excellent in the financial/business sector, except when it came to their own interpersonal relationship to money, they still experienced their own challenges, which is not uncommon. In fact, I expect it, as your relationship to money is ever evolving. 

This goes much deeper than a mindset issue.

Your Singular Process and Approach Related to Your Singular Work is More th. Instagram post 17927857252632975

Your Singular Process and Approach Related to Your Singular Work is More th. ...

You're not going to "Just Do It" by deciding to believe.

Because your beliefs are not intellectual concepts.

Your beliefs are locked into your mind AND body: nervous system, energy centers, and the emotional cellular and have neurological correlates.

They're hooked emotionally and internally into your nervous system because of experiences related to pain, pleasure, and survival.

This why you may be instructed to take an action, and it might even "work", meaning you 'get' the aimed result, but it doesn't stick. It's might be short lived or feels all sorts of wrong and 'off', or even lead to further trauma.

Or when you go to do it again, you struggle to repeat it.

It's not uncommon to hear about or experience income leaps that subsequently lead to backlash because an internal money set point has been crossed, which pertains to your nervous system.

The same can be true if you make yourself vulnerable or visible in a way you never have before.

It's also why the general prescriptions don't work, especially as you elevate your work and business, which requires new problem solving, nuanced decision-making, raising your aims, and meeting different challenges that invoke tapping into another level of sensitivity, attention, intelligence, and precision... 

And why it's imperative to uncover your specific interpersonal relationship to *each* part of your money, so you can identify the  exact programming, beliefs, and trauma  AND dissolve it at the cognitive, nervous system, energy centers, and the emotional cellular level.

Get to the (layered) root cause,  rather than spinning on the surface of 'symptoms'.

This is when you can experience your desired results and aims without the friction, stress, resistance, and struggle...

 And, instead, with authenticity, grace, and fluidity as you lead with trust and a sound knowing in yourself and your intentions.

Many business coaches/mentors are excellent and highly valuable, but most (if any!) do not get *specific* when it comes to your interpersonal relationship to money and what I call Your Singular Work, so you can communicate, deliver, and represent it with gravity.

Not the way business leaders and advanced creatives who have been in business for a while actually need in order to elevate their work and money, including *how* they experience it.

This is not a diss on business coaches, it's simply not typically their focus.

There comes a time when it's time to move in and really (((look))) closely at the finer details, which can and do make the greatest difference in your presence, your delivery of exceptional results, the money you make and how, who you call into your world, and demonstrating true influence.

Detail and nuance is where I like to go as that has everything to do with elevated work no matter what we're talking about.

Most people do not know how to go to the *cause* of their money results, including their beliefs, programming, and patterns. 

Especially when it comes to their specific interpersonal relationship to *each* part of their money.

They get stuck with mindset, and only mindset, which does not go to the level of your inimitable life-force, charisma, singular creativity and expression, and enthusiasm that can lead to incredible creative and financial leaps. This is why a comprehensive approach is so necessary and valuable.

Most only touch the surface, instead of going to the unconscious, which has everything to do with *how* you experience and create your money, business, and your work.

When I say money connects to everything, including safety/security (firstly), LOVE, and self-image, people don’t generally entirely believe me UNTIL they experience the work we do together.

Your interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of your money runs deep, meaning unconsciously. Money is simply an object we project our beliefs, programs, values, and even trauma which determines our energy/emotions/thoughts and *how* we make, receive, handle, manage, and experience it.

It’s one of the most important and fundamental relationships you have.

It will reveal your pain/trauma, your (hidden) desires, all the ways you shy away from sharing your singular gifts/lens and Your Singular Work, your resistances/fears you were taught through hypnotic suggestion, modeling, repetition; your need for control, your internal 'set points' related to your capacity and comfort to ask and receive, be visible and seen, be vulnerable, and stand out; your specific attachments, your immense (even if subtle) power, dynamism, and agency, and all the (exquisite) ways you may shut down your life-force, and where you need to develop trust. 

Programming and beliefs develop over time and can fall way below the radar of your conscious ’thinking’ brain, which is why it can be difficult to detect or dissolve the cause, instead of getting stuck on the symptoms.

There are few things that give dynamic and comprehensive context to your interpersonal dynamics like money can (at least the way I work) for you to see, honor, and experience all the fine ways you may hide (and why) and, more importantly, all the incredible possibility that is ALREADY available to and within you.

WE HEAR A LOT ABOUT THE STATUS QUO...

But what about your personal status quo?

☠️THE RULES☠️

All the (unconscious) 'rules' that live in your mind and body: nervous system, emotional cellular, and energy centers which protect you from having what you genuinely (secretly) desire.

The 'rules' that tell you you can’t actually experience a thriving business or creative success that makes the money you desire WITHOUT struggling, compromising, or exhausting yourself...

Or the 'rules' that you have to do x y z BEFORE you receive the reward, the success, the recognition.

Or the BIG 'rule' around how you have to represent yourself and WHO you have to be in order to experience bigger reward and higher aims for your work.

Imagine the many silent and nuanced 'rules' you have running in your daily programming that determine AND limit everything you have right now. 

Because there are a lot of (unconscious) 'rules' we have and we're NOT even aware of them...

BUT just because you are not aware of them doesn't mean they aren't operating in a way that works for/ against your best intentions.

AND the same is true when it comes to *each* part of your money and how you develop and lead what I call Your Singular Work.

What if you could clear the *specific* generational programming (wired 'rules') that run through your mind and nervous system that impede the financial and creative results (and *how) you desire.

...Imagine 4-10x's your rates and income with ease because you know and honor the higher value of Your Singular Work and exactly for whom it is.

...Imagine attracting the opportunities perfectly suited to you because you understand the higher value of your work and allow yourself to confidently communicate and represent it with those who will appreciate and invest in it; instead of continuing to put yourself in the wrong context or speaking to the wrong people. 

(This is how programming can keep you in a frustrating pattern.)

...Imagine making decisions fluidly because you are clear about *your* desired aims and exactly how you want to represent yourself.

🌹 If You Aim To Raise the (Investment) Value Of Your Work....

It requires *both* an INNER transformation AND a conceptual understanding of what you offer.

Whether in service, product, or ideas (true *influence*)

Value, meaning both investment value AND *delivery*: results/transformation/ experience 

The biggest challenge most people suffer is NOT fully seeing the higher value of what they have to offer and/or honoring their gifts/lens and *all* aspects of themselves; and, in some/most cases, *not* following through and giving it the form/expression it deserves, as a result.

This applies to ALL levels of business or 'success' and can express itself in different and surprising ways.
 
These are some of what I call the symptoms:

⚡️💀you're not pursuing bigger/more original ideas/expressions that actually invoke your gifts/lens and have way higher earning potential and/or true *influence*. 
Instead, you pursue the things that are SAFE -- known, only taught by another, sure to sell, or keep you in 'expert' mode. (We can ALL suffer this at some point which is WHY it's important to know how it operates for you.)

…emotions are NOT the same as feelings.

Emotions are physical and often unconscious.

Feelings are mental.

Why you can experience mysterious setbacks and frustrating patterns when it comes to actualizing your desired aims.

The unconscious runs deep below our conscious awareness.

It’s subtle and also exquisitely powerful.

“The detection of a person as safe or dangerous triggers neurobiologically determined pro-social or defensive behaviors.

Even though we may not always be aware of danger on a cognitive level, on a *neurophysiological* level, our body has already started a sequence of neural processes that would facilitate adaptive defense behaviors such as fight, flight or freeze. ”

PROBLEMS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM; COPING IS THE PROBLEM.

You can't "step into your power" without looking at that which is holding you back.

It's not one or the other, it's "both-and", despite what the "just think positive" brigade tells you (along with pics of champagne and bubble baths).

I've seen many people say in posts in the last week mention they are tired of how the self-development industry focuses on "what's wrong with you," which I find absolutely fascinating. 

I get it, there are manipulative people, but the truth is that you must honor both your strengths/gifts and your self-protection.

Messages like:

Just follow your truth
Live or create from your genius
Just believe
Go for your dreams
Be your badass self
Ask for what you want

This already implies that it's not already happening, so WHY?

Why is that *not* happening? Why are you *not* experiencing that?

THIS IS ALWAYS MY #1 QUESTION

It does not mean anything is "wrong" with you, it means something is *causing* you to NOT experience or live it.

Many LOA teachers and the like who espouse only "feeling good" or "thinking positive" generally don't disclose the OTHER (REAL) work they do behind the scenes, including trauma and shadow work. 

Even Gabby Bernstein, who I don't follow but saw on an interview,  said that she felt ashamed when she experienced postpartum depression because she was a spiritual teacher. She sought deeper interpersonal support, which also included medication.

A lot of "spiritual" teachers only share what they teach and sell which gives a very skewed and distorted perspective of what advanced  interpersonal work looks like and involves.

When I was suffering severe anxiety, including daily (multiple) panic attacks to the point of being nearly agoraphobic, I still didn't think there was something "wrong" with me, but I  knew a lot wasn't right. 

I was not *consciously* worried about anything in particular most times I experienced the attacks, except my body was telling me something else. I was living from an unconscious locked groove of over working, over functioning, push push push, fear, internal pain and conflict, which had become my normal.

I've seen many people say in posts in the last week mention they are tired of how the self-development industry focuses on "what's wrong with you," which I find absolutely fascinating.

I get it, there are manipulative people, but the truth is that you must honor both your strengths/gifts and your self-protection.

Messages like:

Just follow your truth
Live or create from your genius
Just believe
Go for your dreams
Be your badass self
Ask for what you want

This already implies that it's not already happening, so WHY?

Why is that *not* happening? Why are you *not* experiencing that?

THIS IS ALWAYS MY #1 QUESTION

It does not mean anything is "wrong" with you, it means something is *causing* you to NOT experience or live it.

Many LOA teachers and the like who espouse only "feeling good" or "thinking positive" generally don't disclose the OTHER (REAL) work they do behind the scenes, including trauma and shadow work.

Even Gabby Bernstein, who I don't follow but saw on an interview, said that she felt ashamed when she experienced postpartum depression because she was a spiritual teacher. She sought deeper interpersonal support, which also included medication.

A lot of "spiritual" teachers only share what they teach and sell which gives a very skewed and distorted perspective of what advanced interpersonal work looks like and involves.

When I was suffering severe anxiety, including daily (multiple) panic attacks to the point of being nearly agoraphobic, I still didn't think there was something "wrong" with me, but I knew a lot wasn't right.

I was not *consciously* worried about anything in particular most times I experienced the attacks, except my body was telling me something else. I was living from an unconscious locked groove of over working, over functioning, push push push, fear, internal pain and conflict, which had become my normal.

YOUR SINGULAR (GENIUS) WORK IS BIGGER THAN YOU 

It will lead you to what you need to research, learn, further develop, and/or give form/expression in order to potentiate it and properly represent it, and that includes you and your inner world.

That means your interpersonal dynamics; it's not just a conceptual endeavor.

Just having a great message is *not* enough. 

In order to truly back your message and your deep intention, you have to have the work that supports it.

Otherwise, you're ignoring your backend.

Besides, it's too easy to posture and copy these days; we know this. 

Your Singular Work is what people remember and what actually transforms them, assuming you deliver powerful results/experience/work, leading to true influence. And it gets reflected through your communication, including your presence.

In order to best support the people with whom I most wish to work and guide, I researched, studied, trained, synthesized lived (professional) experiences, and designed my work in a way I knew business leaders and advanced creatives desire, because I experienced it myself as a professional creative freelancer in NYC. I first had myself, my peers, and colleagues to see and observe what was most valued and desired. 

To experience elevated levels of your own work, it means honoring your interpersonal world. Where are your blind spots? What is currently manipulating your energy and distorting your perception?

It doesn't matter if you're a transformational coach, business leader, advanced creative, or a critical artist/thinker; if you're genuinely interested in continuing to evolve your work, it's going to require a hella lot more of you. 🏹

When it comes to my clients dissolving long held resistances and fears related to programming, beliefs, and trauma in the context of *each* part of their money which can result in income plateaus, debt cycles, investment caps, toxic money while experiencing anxiety, OCD, panic, overwhelm, chronic stress, perfectionism, battles, addiction, insomnia, dread, disconnection, fatigue, …(you have to know how to look for the (layered) cause)

It’s important to understand that beliefs and trauma are held in the body. It is layered and often times unconscious and why it is essential to address the body: nervous system, energy centers, and the emotional cellular along with the mental/cognitive. 

HOW you experience your results is an important aspect to sustaining and further developing (expanding) your business and work. 

And why it’s equally important to have processes that effectively uncover the specific and exact cause for you along with an approach that supports your desired aims.

Too often I see people espousing common information about trauma or perhaps share the importance of addressing the body, but then their approach does *not* support the stance they present OR they don’t mention it at all and you later find out it’s another mindset program with some profile work.

This is one example of what I look for when I’m working with my clients around what I call Your Singular Work:

Does your communication match what you SAY you deliver and how?

It’s too easy to copy others, as so many do with my content and others, but the real salt is in what you deliver.

Too often I witness people regurgitating trauma info and the importance of addressing the body and then their approach is top—> down (brain centric, mindset). If your approach is cognitive/behavioral, then it makes sense your focus is top—>down, but then it’s important to be congruent in your communication.

⚡️ FIRST FAMILY PARADIGM ⚡️ 

This is absolutely the first place I start with all my clients: the first ~ 7 years of your life (and last trimester in the womb) when you're living purely from a subconscious state, downloading your parents programming related to money and the “rules” of your family and culture.

Our inner landscape includes our emotions, our biochemistry, and our mental processes and beliefs.

Programming/beliefs develop in our subconscious through:

unconscious modeling
repetition and trauma
post-hypnotic suggestions
learned experience
teaching

Which includes not just the mind but the body.

The money paradigm (beliefs/patterns/programs) from which you come has tremendous impact and influence on what you're currently experiencing right now in *each* part of your money, business, and what you actualize through Your Singular Work…or not.

It's essential to uncover and identify the beliefs/programs that have formed and keep you living at a level of security to keep you 'safe'. In other words, what you know and feels comfortable and “right”.

These internal 'set points' apply to all income levels and why it's important to uncover and actively work with them.

Note: This has nothing to do with your level of intelligence and/or financial/business acumen.

In fact, this is why I feel adamant about sharing this work as too many people suffer frustrating patterns and results, despite taking all the “right” action or being highly knowledgeable and competent.

I have clients who have continued to raise their income each year while also finishing each year with same amount of money in their bank account, same savings, same debt.  Although  they made more money, it also amplified unchecked patterns such as over spending, vague awareness of both their money coming in and going out, poor repeated business investments, not minding their money, (money/business)battles, stress.

A feature of elevated work is nuance and customized attention.

I get so tired of how often I hear some variation of the automatic “diagnosis”: that’s trauma, or that’s because of your mindset, or it’s because your sacral, or (insert your own) without having a proper conversation with a person.

And guess what? It’s typically pretty layered as you are a complex human being with a dynamic interpersonal relationship to your self, other people and things, including money, business, and your work.

So often I see work guided at the conscious level and a whole archive of information is missed…which is unfortunate, especially concerning the highly creative. There is so much gold hiding in the form of orphaned parts, dreams, desires, needs, and life-force energy which has everything to do with developing your most profound work while giving it the expression it deserves.

It doesn’t just exist in your head 😉

And why I insist on a psychosomatic approach, especially for those who continue to push their creative and financial edges.

SCORPIO…..in spirit of the Scorpio moon.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The sign of transformation, death, and rebirth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The scorpion, phoenix, and the eagle.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And SEX
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the alchemical sense
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not just related to the carnal
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most importantly, the deeper understanding of yourself, your power, and agency.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the greatest forms of sex one can experience.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is also why Scorpio is considered one of the most deeply psychological power signs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So why am I bringing this up?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And no, I am not an astrologer. Take this as a metaphor if you like.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But let's face it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you truly want to experience the life you want…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then it's going to require some things to DIE.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So you can finally experience that deeper, magical, sexual energy with your work and LIFE.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And so do I.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So you can continue to lean into the creative edges of your singular gifts and experience the elevated expressions of your genius.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It requires you to dissolve (read: erase) the layers and layers of programming that prevent you from seeing it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, more importantly, experiencing it...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In your body.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In your whole being.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
You must see *exactly* where you have been ignoring your most unsupported needs and desires which are implicit and intrinsic to your genius.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may potentially make you shy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And possibly slightly terrified.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Except you should want it no other way.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We weren't taught to embrace freedom.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were taught to seek safety and security which are death to your singular expression...

Which is why I work so finely through the lens of money as it is so unconsciously laced in our relationship to security, love, and self-image which has everything to do with your sense of safety.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It runs deep and unconscious.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So back to the connection to transformation and sex.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I want you to consider this deeply

Your Singular Work is not only the tools, techniques, and materials you use.

Your work informs what tools, techniques, and materials are best to use to meet the challenges and aims of yours and/or your clients.

I see too much emphasis or dismissal of certain tools, techniques, and materials while having very little understanding of what they actually do or WHY they are even the best to employ.

Part of deeply understanding your work is knowing this piece.

Just telling a person to journal or do affirmations and visualizations may have limited results because you have not actually identified the root cause of a "problem".

And that requires a good process to FIRST uncover and identify it.

You also may very likely need to use a different tool/technique in order to address the nervous system and trauma.

And if your client is feeling disconnected from the work they do or what they're creating, more mindset work is NOT what they need.

I see this especially with achievers.

I see this so often when it comes to challenges people experience with some part(s) of their money WITHOUT considering WHY they are experiencing it, first.

They are blindly following or prescribing techniques without considering HOW or why it actually works.

For instance, achievers can achieve many things, except many can feel stressed out or overwhelmed, devoid of meaning in their life, exhausted, and disconnected, especially after achieving their goal, they feel more pressure and not enough.

Everything has turned into one long check-list.

Therefore, setting and hitting big money goals is NOT the right solution.

If you're exhausted and feel empty, you're up against an inner resistance caused by deeper (unconscious) programming and trauma which lives in the body.

Not the head.

I experienced this myself when I was a professional creative freelancer, which is why I place so much attention on taking a comprehensive psychosomatic approach.

Because you know there is something still calling you -- subtle, yet ever present. This is what directed the design and application of my own work.

If I had followed or listened to “the rules”, I wouldn’t have contributed to changing the coaching/online world and HOW people communicate and represent themselves. This started with changing the focus of what was most important.

I saw almost immediately what was missing in this industry, which wasn’t difficult as I was coming from a creative art background where everything is concentric to one’s work.

It’s no wonder Daniel Pink points out that the MFA is the new MBA, as critical artists are equipped with deep cultural, media, and visual studies and understanding to decode and communicate with an ever changing and abstract world. You need to know how to think differently and that begins with knowing (((how)) to look at things first, so you can develop new approaches and directions.

Advanced artists and creatives understand the value of knowing their work and their relationship to it, including their process and approach. But much of the business/coaching/self-development world seemed to miss this important piece.

It’s over 3 years now that I started talking about how there was an imbalance in the industry: too much talk about (money) results and outcomes, need for good messaging, and sales AND ZERO talk about the actual work.

Do you know how many times I heard business and marketing coaches tell me “no one cares about the process”?

BULLSHIT. I did and I always will.

It’s how I sense true authenticity. 

What’s your stance?
Why do you take the approach you do?
Do you actually care? Or do you just string random steps together and take my money while you blow smoke up my booty?

AUTHORITY - AUTHENTICITY - AUTHORSHIP. ...

Do you find yourself saying: "That's not rational," when it comes to your own financial decisions or others' decisions.

Well...rationale is based on belief.

I hear this so often, and what people don't understand is they are often repeated something they have been taught without fully exploring it for themselves.

For instance, Dave Ramsey talks about how debt is bad, you should not go into debt, pay off your debt, first. It should be your priority.

Except, if you listen to Grant Cardone, he says the complete opposite.

He believes debt is a natural part of business, especially if you want to expand your business. He believes that in order to become wealthy, you need to leverage your credit lines.

Do you see how both men have very different perspectives on the same topic. One is much wealthier than the other, I might add.

My point is that each has their own rationale to support their perspective, which is based entirely on belief.

They also have their own singular interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of their money; in this case, debt.

Debt or no debt is surprisingly NOT the real conversation.

The real conversation is about how YOUR personal relationship to money.

What works for you?

Unfortunately, very few people explore what their interpersonal relationship is to money and are often following tactics or strategies that don't support their vision, philosophy, and make-up.

Some people have much higher risk thresholds than others, but a potentially deeper belief in themselves, understanding of their higher aims, and faith to accomplish it.

WHAT DOES MONEY HAVE TO DO WITH CREATIVITY?

...Where do I begin?

I occasionally get this question as a former professional creative freelancer and exhibiting artist in NYC from people who are curious about how addressing *each* part of your money psychosomatically can change the trajectory and relationship to your work.

And this is often what I hear from my clients:

“Wow,  I never thought this had anything to do with money!”

My life completely changed when I started to focus on my money.

And you probably think I’m talking about the obvious — making more, creating a better lifestyle, managing my money, less stress.

And yes, those were definitely some of the benefits...

But more importantly, something else happened to me.

I didn’t expect to have what I call the breakthrough that we all hear about, much less the creative and financial leaps.

I just thought I would be able to get on with my life a little better, create more freedom....and again, less stress.

I never imagined what I experienced.

This is why I feel so strongly about the work I do. 

I can’t tell you how many incredibly ambitious and creative people come to me to share with me their big aspirations.

They’ve traveled the world, they’ve built (big) independent businesses, they've performed around the world, they’ve published books, publicly recognized, but something still feels amiss.

We hear the word MONEY BLOCK all the time. It's not a word I generally use as I think it is very layered and deserves better understanding. It gets nuanced.

I thought it was only surface, meaning numbers in my bank account.

But it goes much deeper than that.

>>the generational programming that correlates to silent internal set points related to *each* part of your money that cause frustrating patterns, income and investment limits, financial set backs, battles in business and personal relationships, perfectionism, fear of spending and investing, and chronic stress to name a few. 

>>How much are you actually HIDING, despite believing you are being visible, sharing your best work but not nearly to the level you know you are capable?

I didn’t expect to have what I call the breakthrough that we all hear about, much less the creative and financial leaps.

I just thought I would be able to get on with my life a little better, create more freedom....and again, less stress.

I never imagined what I experienced.

This is why I feel so strongly about the work I do. 

I can’t tell you how many incredibly ambitious and creative people come to me to share with me their big aspirations.

They’ve traveled the world, they’ve built (big) independent businesses, they've performed around the world, they’ve published books, publicly recognized, but something still feels amiss.

We hear the word MONEY BLOCK all the time. It's not a word I generally use as I think it is very layered and deserves better understanding. It gets nuanced.

I thought it was only surface, meaning numbers in my bank account.

But it goes much deeper than that.

>>the generational programming that correlates to silent internal set points related to *each* part of your money that cause frustrating patterns, income and investment limits, financial set backs, battles in business and personal relationships, perfectionism, fear of spending and investing, and chronic stress to name a few.

>>How much are you actually HIDING, despite believing you are being visible, sharing your best work but not nearly to the level you know you are capable?

TIME vs. ATTENTION 

Some things don’t come down to time as much as they do to attention…and I mean the right attention.

You can read all the books.

Do all the programs.

Follow all the steps

And spend all the time consuming information....

Except if you don’t give something the right attention, you could be circumnavigating the very thing you want resolved or actualized.

And when it comes to something like what I call Your Singular Work or your interpersonal dynamic to *each* part of your money, it requires attention that is dynamic AND specific — both conceptually and psychosomatically.

We hear so much now about the relevance of the nervous system, except I don’t see enough about getting to the core (layered) cause and the actual right approach(es) to effectively address it. Many conveniently leave that part out.

Otherwise, you can do tons of yoga, spa-ing your days away, sex magic-ing, affirming, meditating, and visualizing etc but you’re still experiencing the same set points to your money, struggling with managing and handling money, fear of sharing your most singular ideas and expressions, battling parters, clients, family, and other disruptive patterns because you haven't actually gone to the deeper cause.

And why it’s essential to uncover what’s actually causing these symptoms…over and over.

The aforementioned are excellent ways to relax the nervous system, btw; I enjoy them myself, BUT when it comes to running a business, receiving and handling higher sums of money, developing your most exceptional work, representing that work, it’s essential to develop your interpersonal dynamic to these things in order to support those things. This has everything to do with resiliency, confidence, emotional intelligence, and finesse.

This is about syncing up your conscious thinking brain and intentions with your nervous system and the emotional cellular so you can gracefully move out of your comfort zone which is delineated by your emotional, mental, and energetic set points.

It requires getting exact and specific to you, so you are no longer in “management mode” or coping...and the sooner you can resolve these challenges.
