The secret to fast forwarding your business

The secret to fast forwarding your business

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground where we apply Law of Attraction in practical and magical ways to get you in alignment both in business and in life – so you can have more money in the bank and get a whole lot more done with ease!

Let’s talk about the secret to truly moving forward in your business with ease.

I want to take you back to the Trifecta of Life which is what the Effectology Method is all about. The Trifecta of Business/Life (which, let’s face it, for women in business is pretty much one and the same) is about balancing alignment with practical approaches to both MONEY and TIME , because they are our key resources – in business and in life.

You’ll notice that there are two really practical things, money and time, paired with alignment on that trifecta. Alignment really is the key.

So let’s just look at the side that involves money, which is all about getting things done, and moving forward in your business and how that relates to alignment. You see, you can practice lots of different productivity tools, and productivity strategies, and there are loads and loads of them available. Maybe you’ve found that sometimes you can stick to something for a little while but after some time the wheels fall off. That’s because we all have different productivity styles, different personality styles, but it actually goes beyond that.

For the productivity tools that do work for you, the reason they work is that they naturally align with your higher self, with the way you naturally get into flow. So when you find the productivity tools that truly work for you, it’s because they are the ones that naturally help you get into and stay in alignment, and what then happens is that you move beyond even productivity and being efficient and you move into being truly “effective,” which is when you’re working on the right things, at the right time, in the right way, in just the right kind of pattern of knowing when to let it go and allow things to kind of just drop into place as they’re ready and when to get in there and start creating motion forward.

That is then a state of working, being, and living in aligned effectiveness.





It means you’re in alignment so you’re naturally tapped into your unconscious flow which also means that you then get the inspiration and the impulses to act when you need to act and not act when all you’re going to be doing is spinning your wheels and wearing yourself out. That is why certain productivity tools work for you and not others, because they’re the ones that naturally tap into the way you get into alignment.

But the key to it all is… that you’ve got to get into alignment and then you actually draw in the right productivity tools anyway. And it doesn’t even matter if you’re not using “a tool” per se, because your alignment will naturally help you to work in that perfect state of flow.

So, alignment comes first, and the tools come second.

Now, having said that, you do still need to practice the tools and make sure that you’ve got them at your disposal so that you can play with them and work out which ones do help you achieve that state of flow and feel really good, and which ones don’t.

That is why I’ve created a really special freebie.. it’s the Effectiveness Book.

It gives you the top 7 effectiveness strategies that really do make a difference. Some of them are super simple, some of them involve a little bit more thought process on your behalf, but they are the top strategies that help you get a whole lot more done in a whole lot less time, and sometimes that’s where you need to start.

Sometimes you’re so stressed out and behind that you can’t possibly get in alignment, you just have to kind of get on top of things a little bit. So by using these effectiveness strategies you can clear the air a little bit, help you naturally get into alignment, then dive back into the effectiveness strategies and click into that state of aligned effectiveness so that you can move forward in life and get more done with ease.

That is what the Effectology Method is all about. It’s about being in a state of alignment and having the practical strategies to manage both your money and your time so both of those can flow in a really beautiful aligned and congruent way.

So, if you’d like to grab that and you don’t have it yet, just follow the link in the description and knock yourself out! You’re going to find that if you apply these properly, you can shave a whole working day off your week and actually get more done in less time with, most importantly, a whole lot less stress.

So go ahead, grab that now!

In the meantime, keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.

Why you never have enough time

Why you never have enough time

Do you find you don’t have enough time? Why is that?

No, I’m quite serious, why is that? I know you’re busy, I know you’ve got lots to do, but my question to you is truly “Why do you feel you don’t have enough time to do the things that you need to be doing? To do the things that really make a difference?”

The thing is… who controls your time?

You know of people who have the same 24 hours in the day as you and they’re doing what it is you want to be doing… but you’re not, and you’re the one who controls your time.

At the end of the day it, again, comes down to taking 100% responsibility.

Let me just tell you, I have been there. I’m not lecturing you as though I’ve got it all together. I have ABSOLUTELY been there. I have missed deadlines. I have been overwhelmed. I have been snowed under, and it STILL happens to me from time to time.

What I’ve learned is that if you want to get what you need out of your time, so that you can feel good about how it’s been spent and what it is you’ve achieved from it, you need 3 things:




You need clarity, you need focus, and you need vibrational and energetic alignment.

Because time is actually relative. Time is elastic. You can expand time, and you can shrink time with the power of your focus. Time is totally relative. Einstein taught us that, right? It is simply a perception of, “Ooh, that hour has just flown past” and, “Oh my god, these 5 minutes are just stretching on forever.” Time is totally relative and you get to choose through the power of your focus, clarity, and energetic alignment as to how much you expand that time.

Your focus chooses, and your alignment decides how much power and leverage you get out of that time.

It is really about mastering both your focus AND your energy. It is again about marrying the magical with the practical. Your focus is really something you need to train yourself on. Your energy is the same, but it comes from that otherworldly place deep within you, that mystical mysterious place. Your energetic alignment is where your incredibly unlimited power lies. When you marry that with the focus of your prefrontal cortex and the 3D reality around you, that’s when you bring the two together…

And baby that is the next big bang that you’ve been looking for!

That is what helps you step forward and fully claim your power as a spiritual being having an amazingly fabulous physical experience.

So this is also why in my Effectology Method program, I actually give my students pre-study that helps them really nail these elements so that they can create the space they need in their life to do the program, and also to start experiencing that sense of calm. By doing that pre-study, if they follow every single step I give them, what they actually can do is take a 5 day working week and shrink it down to a 4 day working week and even get more done more effortlessly through that process.

Now, if you’d like just a little bit of that, then grab yourself today’s freebie which is the Effectiveness Book. It gives you my Top 7 really practical steps for getting more done in less time. Help yourself to that from the link in the description.

Remember, if you also marry that with energetic alignment, it will give you incredibly powerful leverage so I do suggest that you also incorporate something like a daily morning meditation practice, then bring in these powerful steps I share with you in that Effectiveness Book… and watch the magic happen!

Keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential, and I’ll see you next time!

How to manage your time

How to manage your time

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – where we practice the art & science of Effectology – marrying the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the hustle!

Let’s talk about how to manage your time.

We all have 24 hours in the day, 7 days in our week. We want to make the most out of that. Time is the resource we have to produce the outcomes that we’re looking for everyday. But the thing to recognize about time is that it is actually entirely experiential.

You know how sometimes you’re sitting in a really boring show – maybe it’s your kid’s Christmas show, maybe it’s some concert, and you just wish that it was over. It just drags on and on and on. Or maybe you’ve even experienced this when you’re meditating and you think, “Okay, I’ll sit down and meditate for 10 minutes.” You set a timer and you’re sitting there, meditating or thinking about meditating, and suddenly think, “Surely, my timer is broken. Surely, I didn’t set it. I’ve been here for hours. What is going on?” But when you check the timer, no, you’ve actually only been there for about 5 or 6 minutes.

At other times you’ve been so in the moment, you’ve had such a good time, that time flies – just like that and you think, “How can it be time to leave already? We’ve only just started!”

Time is entirely experiential. We can actually bend time. We can expand time or we can contract it with our awareness and our focus. You can slow time down and, really, that’s what you want to do when you need to get the most out of your time. But the thing is, you cannot manage the time itself, you cannot “grab” the time and stretch it, but what you CAN do is change you and your experience of that time.




So, how do you manage time?

You don’t. You manage YOU.

The way to do that is to actually learn to manage your focus and your awareness so that you get to that moment where you’re so entranced in the activity you’re in, that time seems to stand still.

The number one way to be able to start training your focus so that you’re not distracted like a rabbit in the headlights, just jumping from one thing to the next… you know, shiny bright objects syndrome… is to start meditating. Because that’s what meditation is. It is a practice. A practice in focusing your mind on one single activity. That might be noticing your breath, focusing on a mantra, trying to go into silence, or just focusing on a guided meditation that you’re listening to.

So, if you’d like to practice that a little bit more and you haven’t yet got access to my meditation library, make sure that you grab that. The link is below. There are 52 meditations on all sorts of amazing topics. They’re actually hypnotic meditations, which means that they tap directly into your unconscious mind and help you create some real shifts at the unconscious level so you won’t just be training your focus, you’ll actually be doing some real, important work – starting to make some shifts that will help you gain more clarity, more focus, start to heal some old patterns, and start to attract more abundance – all with your eyes shut!

So grab that from the link below if you’re not yet a member and until next time, keep on embracing your beautiful and absolutely unlimited potential.

Bye for now!

How to not let what’s urgent get in the way of what’s important

How to not let what’s urgent get in the way of what’s important

Hi, I’m Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business –  where we practice the art and science of Effectology to help you have more money, more time, the easy way… without all the extra hustle!

Today we’re going to talk about urgent versus important, because as you know, each day there’s a bunch of stuff that’s really urgent for you to get done and then there’s also those things that you know are really important – important for your business, important for your well-being, important for your overall happiness levels in life.




The first thing to realize is that the urgent stuff will always be there.

It never really goes away and it also screams the loudest for your attention so it’s really easy to go through the day and just be caught up in all this urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent stuff – stuff that at the end of the day is not actually all that important.. And then you feel like you didn’t really get anything done and you didn’t really move forward.

Now, the second thing to remember is that you will never get everything done.

Your to-do list will always keep on growing and basically, you’ll just never catch up and you need to make your peace with that.  So what that means is you need to be even more deliberate with what you spend your precious time on, because you only have 24 hours in every day and I’d like for you to spend some of that sleeping, having fun, chilling out and all that good stuff.

The third thing to really keep in mind is that it’s actually the important stuff, not the urgent stuff that makes the biggest difference overall.

That’s the stuff that changes your life. That’s the stuff that takes you and your business up to the next level… next level of income, next level of clients, next level of people you can reach, next level of joy and happiness and freedom in your life.

It’s the important stuff which isn’t usually screaming urgent at you, THAT’S what will actually make the difference.

So, the bottom line as with pretty much everything I teach is that it is all up to you.

It is up to you to manage your time, manage your attention and really be discerning about what is just urgent – but not really important – and what is actually really important and does need to get done. And then you choose and decide from there.

Now if you’d like some help with sorting all of that stuff out, make sure you grab yourself a copy of my Effectiveness book. It’s 7 Proven Strategies for Juggling Business and Family while staying sane in the process and you can grab it at the link below.

Help yourself to my Effectiveness book and get started on really making those discerning decisions as to what’s just urgent and what’s actually important and allow yourself to take life to another level.

Keep on embracing your unlimited potential and I will see you next time.

Bye for now!

How would you like to work one day LESS each week and actually IMPROVE your results? I’m talking about more money, more clients, more fun and more joy – all while doing a lot LESS!

It’s totally possible and no, it doesn’t require some sort of Twilight zone time travel… it’s simply a matter of applying Pareto’s principle!

Pareto’s principle says that 80% of your outcome comes from just 20% of your input. What’s super exciting is that this rule applies to pretty much everything!

Let me give you an easy example:

If we opened your wardrobe so you can show me the clothes you wear 80% of the time, then unless you’re a staunch minimalist (in which case you’re already applying Pareto’s principle), you’ll pull out about 20% (or even less) of the clothes you own.

OK, so now you’re thinking Pareto’s principle is a great way to clean out your closet.. and yes, it is… but it’s SOOOO much more than that!

This little rule applies to pretty much EVERYTHING in life – how many friends you have versus how many you see (or how many you actually give a rip about..), the food in your pantry & fridge versus what you actually eat and of course… your business!!

You can do a Pareto’s Analysis on your business and decide which activities actually make you the money & help grow your business and which are largely just time wasters.

At this point I expect you’ll be pretty damn excited.. why wouldn’t you be?

You want to sit down and do a Pareto’s analysis of your business as soon as possible – take yourself on a little CEO date and write it all out. (Hint: If you’re like most people, you might need to spend a week actually tracking what you spend your time on first.)

Then comes the really exciting bit:

After you’ve done your Pareto’s Analysis, I want you to DOUBLE the amount of time you spend on the 20% that actually makes the difference and HALVE the amount of time you spend on the other stuff.

As a result you can expect to work a lot LESS and get a whole lot MORE in return!

When you also know how to get yourself in vibrational alignment and then do that Pareto’s work from a place of aligned effectiveness, absolute magic happens, so remember to keep marrying the magical with the practical!
