Your Money Cycle - Blessing or Curse?
This week's blog is an article from Kendall Summerhawk, founder of IAWBC (International Assn of Women in Business Coaching) and 7 figure entrepreneur and coach. As solopreneurs and women business owners, I think we all experience "money drama" from time to time and this article really resonated to me - and I hope to you too.
Whether you're aware of it or not, every woman has her own "money cycle." If you're NOT aware of what your cycle is, you can end up feeling at the mercy of "having more month than you have money" or feeling frustrated and cranky as to why money seems to flow in and out of your life without any real predictability.
But, if you peek behind the curtain you'll discover that most money drama isn't something that "just happens to you." It's something that happens FOR you, giving you the opportunity to deepen your connection to Source, and if you know what to do, it's an opportunity to walk your spiritual path with a new level of insight, clarity and courage.
After coaching hundreds of women on this emotionally charged topic, I've discovered that there are THREE situations every woman can easily find herself in that trigger a money cycle that can, at first, feel like a curse, but are really a blessing in disguise. Read on to learn which one YOU experience in your life…and what you can do to quickly transform your money cycle into the blessing it's meant to be.
Situation #1 When You're Stepping In To Something Big
Have you noticed that every time you make a big decision, such as launching a new business, going for a new niche market, offering a new, exciting program, your money cycle seems to go into a downward spiral? While it's easy to say, "I guess it wasn't meant to be," giving in like this will only serve to keep repeating this money cycle in your life. Ugh!
Instead, recognize what this cycle REALLY is: it's the ego's way of trying to keep you stuck right where you are. The ego finds change threatening, to the point where it will help create scary money situations to keep you from moving forward. So what's a gal to do? Honor this part of you that is so powerful…but don't give up your plan. Keep moving forward, no matter what and you'll quickly break through to the other side, and feel the relief of knowing you've just made an important and permanent step UP on your journey of self-growth.
Situation #2 When Everyone Or Everything Else Is Getting Your Attention…Except YOUR Life
While it's natural for women to want to help others, taken to an extreme, it can leave a gal ignoring her the needs of her own life. This will often trigger a downward money cycle that includes late fees on unpaid bills, mistakes made by credit card companies, bounced checks and more.
The solution? Pay attention to your money life first, so that your foundation is intact. Without a strong foundation, you can't help others in the way that you want. Once you begin paying attention to money in a positive way, it will reward you in return.
Situation #3 When It's Time To Make A Big Shift In Your Business (Or Your Life)
If, in your heart, you know you need to make a big shift in your life or business but you're avoiding it, you'll likely send yourself into a money cycle of drama as a way of distracting you from what you REALLY need to take action on.
It may be time for you to let go of a friendship that's soured, change mentors, upgrade your clients, raise your fees, ask for emotional support from your husband, hire more team, or any other change that represents a big shift in how you see yourself. Any of these situations can feel scary and fear often triggers money drama. If you're experiencing money drama, then ask yourself, "Where else in my life am I AVOIDING drama?" The answer may not be pretty, but it will be honest and that honesty will give you the courage you need to step forward with purpose and clarity.
Every Money Situation — Even The "Negative" Ones — Is A Blessing IF You Believe This…
As uncomfortable as it may seem at first, every money drama is actually a mirror into your heart and soul, helping you to connect to the Divine as you step into the next highest and greatest version of yourself.
