This week’s question comes from me to you. I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!
Might the way you treat your body be similar to the way you treat (or do) your business? In other words, how is your relationship with your body similar to your relationship with your business (how you work with yourself and others)?
This is an interesting question to consider. And, if it is true, that you treat your body like you treat your business, you could be on the verge of having a huge breakthrough in both of these areas of your life, particularly if there are symptoms of dis-ease in either area.
Let’s look at how you are with your body. What happens if you start to gain weight? Usually, if you are like many of us humans, you will have an emotional reaction (fear, frustration or anger, etc.) to your clothes fitting too tight or to what the scale says, that is if you are brave enough to get on the scale.
You make a conscious decision that today is the day you have to start losing weight. The next thing you might do, in your state of URGENCY and DETERMINATION, is to charge forward and begin to make changes with your eating and exercising habits.
You keep this going until the pressure is off and you’ve lost some weight or until you get really tired from not sleeping or from being stressed out. In other words, you use your will-power (conscious override of your subconscious defense systems) to begin making the changes that you believe you should make until stress takes over and weakens you, thus throwing you back into your old ways.
What happens when you don’t feel well? Do you push yourself to keep going? Do you ignore your body when it tells you that it needs to rest and relax? Do you push yourself to do more than you have the energy for?
This is a sure-fire recipe for a weak, sick, or painful body. The truth is, this is not a loving and respectful way to treat your body. In fact, it seems a bit like a dictator who pushes and expects great performance out of his/her “subjects” because that is what he/she wants. People (your body) are merely seen as things – vehicles to get the dictator what he/she needs and wants as quickly as possible.
Now, let’s consider this same way-of-being as it applies to your work or business. You look at your bank account and decide it has to change for the better. You feel a sense of URGENCY and decide that you have to change now. You must get more clients, do more marketing, speak, network, sell, raise your prices, cut back on expenses, and save your money.
You consciously focus and begin to make changes. You force yourself to do what you believe you need to do, disregarding how you feel in the process. Without consciously realizing it, you push your feelings down and push yourself to make it happen.
You become disillusioned because you aren’t getting the results you want fast enough. Then, you get tired and stressed out because change isn’t happening, even though you’ve been working very hard and putting in many long days and weekends.
What is likely to happen, given you are the same person in the tired, stressed out body, is that without realizing it, you will see yourself and the people you want to serve as “things”, just like you see your body as a thing. “Things” are defined as vehicles that are used to get something, in this case, more money. They can also be obstacles that prevent something (money) from coming to you.
This is certainly not a loving and respectful way-of-being. How are you treating your body? How are you treating your business and your money? If you are being the same way with your body as you are with your money and your business, they will both become dis-eased, weak, and limited. The symptoms will be evident.
Any dis-ease in your body, your business, and with your money is not due to what you are or are not doing, directly. As you might guess, the problem is much deeper than that. If you know anything about fear and resistance, you know that what you resist, persists. What you try to get rid of will try to get rid of you!
In order to keep dis-ease out of your business, your finances, your body, and relationships and to enhance your experience of well-being, financial abundance, freedom, and joy, you must begin with these five (5) steps:
- Stop reacting out of fear or anger, your survival channel
- Access your “state of choice” and acceptance
- Choose what you want and long to experience
- Create an inner REALity that allows for and aligns with what you want
- Take inspired action from your state (channel) of choice
These five (5) steps are your path to transformation. While they are simple, you may find that you have difficulty completing one or more of these steps along the path. It is important to work each step in the order that I have given. This is energy work that must be experienced at the subconscious level of body/emotions/mind/soul.
Just remember, when it comes to doing things from logic and will power versus what you subconsciously believe, what you subconsciously believe will ALWAYS WIN OVER, hands down, every time!
This truth about you is why your quest is well worth making. I believe it is your soul’s desire to do so, to GROW and become your greatest Self. This is a MUST if you want to live the life you were born to live and to be the grandest, prosperous YOU that is YOU!
My best to you for all of the peace, abundance, and joy that you deserve!
In love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
