Q: I really want to make money from working at something I love but I’m not sure how to approach this or even what direction to go. Have you any advice on this? Work and money can be a slow process to get where you want to be, I just wondered if you have any great insights or advice to share on this? Especially as a woman who seems to be working in things you love!

You have to understand that money is an emotional creation, like everything in the Universe, it is created by love or the lack of it. The more you love money, love making it, love creating it, respect it, honour it and cherish it, the more it shows up for you. Like any great relationship, it responds to you the more you want to be with it and value it.
Our society and religions teach us this is not okay, that we are “better people” to live without more than we “need,” that we have to struggle and work hard to have the right to have enough, that we are not worthy, that money corrupts our moral fiber, and many other false beliefs that limit the flow to us of the abundant wealth in this world.
Let’s look at a quick breakdown of what is going on with you. The first limiting belief to address is: “work and money can be a slow process to get where you want to be.” Why? Who gave you that thought or belief? You certainly didn’t come IN with it! You came in knowing you were all possibility! Invite yourself to expand into the new thought that there is nothing easier and more effortless than doing what you love.
Next, get clear about what that is. What rocks your boat? What are you passionate about? What gives you that excited feeling when you think about doing it? Now start exploring your possibilities about THAT. How can you begin? Let yourself play in and accept all fabulous possibilities available to you!
The last hidden belief here is that you don’t really believe that “working” and “fun” and “loving it” go together. I do a million things that others call work, but for me, they are exciting expressions of creativity that I choose to play in. Repeat after me: I love life!
Right now you are saying to money: I don’t need to love you, but I expect you to be in this relationship with me. I am making you the excuse of my lack of creation, because I am not choosing and deciding what I want. I am not taking any action to invest in this relationship. If this were a personal relationship with another being, how much do you think they would want to participate in this with you? Most of us would see the lack of intention and commitment and run the other way.
Of course, like anything, the first step in creation is loving yourself. Be the person you would want to fall in love with, and be dedicated to yourself and the love for your own being. Then you will want to give you everything, including doing what you love and making money joyfully doing that. State with clarity and knowing: I Am the God of Me that gets to create me the way I choose. And then choose. You are worth it and you deserve it.
