The 3 top reasons your business feels stuck

The 3 top reasons your business feels stuck

Let’s talk about the top 3 reasons you’re likely keeping yourself stuck in your business.

I talk to a lot of – women and lots of them are my students – who are on 5-figures and want to crack the 6-figure income ceiling but can’t quite manage to get past that imaginary invisible threshold. 

Then I also have quite a few students who are on 6-figures, multiple 6-figures even, and they’re looking to go really big, like maybe 7-figures as their next goal, but still they feel like they’re running in quicksand.

The interesting thing with this work is that it honestly doesn’t matter what level you’re at, it’s the same things, just at a new level. 

When you’re moving up the spiral, that Magnetic Money Trifecta of needing to continue to attract the money by being a vibrational match, keeping the money in your experience by making sure you’re clearing out the limiting beliefs and money blocks that had it bouncing off, and at the same time allowing your money to grow and multiply by having some really good practical systems in place, that does not change.

It’s simply the same thing at a higher level and a higher level. 

So the flavours of it change a little bit, and what you’re actually doing might shift a little bit, and the consistency and the dedication and the level at which you’re doing it will definitely change, but what you have to DO stays the same.

Wherever you’re at, just get better at it. It’s as simple as that.

So let’s talk about what those top 3 reasons are that you’re probably keeping yourself stuck in your business:





The number 1 reason I see is that women who are feeling stuck in their business and whose income doesn’t seem to be growing as they want it to, are busy focusing on ‘The Gap’. 

They’re busy focusing on, “Are we there yet? Why isn’t it here yet? But I’m doing all the stuff… show me the money, Universe!” 

They’re focusing on the gap between where they are, and where they want to go. 

When you’re focused on the gap, your vibration is doing is lining up with, “It’s missing. It’s not here.” And when that’s what you’re a vibrational match to, then you haven’t nailed that first cornerstone of the Magnetic Money Trifecta because vibrationally, you’ve aligned yourself with, “It’s not here,” and Law of Attraction will go, “Okay. If you say so.” 

It doesn’t judge and it doesn’t overrule you, it just delivers exactly what you are a vibrational match to. 

So, focusing on the gap is the number 1 reason that women are keeping themselves stuck in their business… and men too, but we’re talking women here because we’re just a little bit of a different creature.

Now, the second top reason that I see women getting stuck at the same income level in their business  – or just managing to inch their way up incrementally rather than being able to take bigger and easier leaps and bounds – is that there is something in it for them in staying stuck at the lower level.

We call that a secondary gain. So you need to have a look at, “What’s in it for me by not growing to that next income level? Maybe I say I want a 6-figure business, or I say I want a 7-figure business, and I do want it… but part of me is going, oh no, if we get there, then it means X, Y, Z and we don’t want that.”

So there is a perceived benefit in staying at the current level, and you really need to dig deep and be totally honest with yourself in figuring out what that is, and then making sure that you can get that same need met at the higher income level.

That’s the key.

The moment your unconscious recognizes that, “Hey, yeah we can totally do that AND earn more money,” you’re away, you’re released, the shackles will drop off.

So that’s the second reason.

Now, the third top reason why you’re probably keeping yourself stuck in your business is that you’re simply not consistently enough on your abundance vibration. 

You’re simply not holding that abundance vibration frequency enough. You haven’t done it often enough to make it your new normal, to really become that person at the next level.

You’re throwing some stuff at it, and you’re doing a few things and you’re feeling pretty good, but largely (and remember that 95-98% of what’s going on for you is totally unconscious so it’s not your fault), you are still the same old lower-income-level YOU. 

It really takes a very consistent effort on your part to uplevel that vibration so that you are that MOST of the time, so you can rewire your unconscious programming, rewire your mind, get your body used to this new set of chemistry that is the new you, and THEN you become it. 

You can only do that by immersing yourself deeply enough, sticking with it long enough, that it becomes the new you. 

It’s not just something you do in an effort to jump up and catch the ring – you’re actually GROWING TALLER so that the ring is now totally within your reach. 

Does that make sense? I think that’s a really good analogy.

So until now, you’ve been doing little things to jump up and reach the ring that is your income goal, but what you actually need to do is grow taller so that it’s always within your reach. Interesting stuff, right?

So they are the top 3 reasons you’re likely keeping yourself stuck – actually it could be a mix of all.. just letting you know quietly – but that’s okay because now you are aware.

Who’s getting in the way of your 6-figure business?

Who’s getting in the way of your 6-figure business?

Do you feel like other people are getting in the way of your 6-figure business? 

Maybe your partner’s not very supportive, or maybe you’ve got family who keep doubting everything you do and keep telling you all the bad news of all the people that have gone bust before you – who dared to venture into business, or maybe you’re not feeling supported by your assistant and the other people you’re paying to help you reach that 6-figure income.

It’s frustrating, it’s demoralizing, and it’s just argh! 

Now, as much as it is all of that, I invite you to go a level higher, because that’s what we’re all about here. You are the creator of your world. You are the creator of your life. Everything that is happening on the outside of you – you know, even though you may momentarily choose to forget so you can get grumpy about it – those things on the outside of you are actually a reflection of what’s going on inside of you. 

You bring your filter, your beliefs, your perceptions, and your interpretation of everything that’s happening to every situation.

So, the way you perceive or see a situation will be different to the way I see it and perceive it and to the way somebody else sees it and perceives it. 

What’s showing up for you in your experience is also a direct and perfect match to your active vibration. So if you’ve got doubts, fears, worries, concerns, or feelings of not being supported going on within you and those are active vibrations, guess what you’ll be attracting? Guess what will keep showing up for you? That’s right, all the people who so kindly play that role and show you what is going on within you… so that you can transform it. 

It’s not so much a frustration as it is an INVITATION.





So when you feel yourself being frustrated by those things and thinking, “Ah! All this on the outside of me is getting in my way,” remember it’s actually just a reflection of what’s going on internally for you, and so it is actually an invitation for you to shift what’s going on within you. For you to look at, “Okay, where do I have fears, doubts, worries, concerns? Where do I not feel supported and so I keep attracting people who confirm that for me, and how can I shift those things?”

That is the work for you. 

It’s really quite miraculous how when you shift your point of view, your attitude, your vibration internally, and bring a different perception to a situation, people on the outside of you seem to miraculously change. 

I’ve seen this in my own life. In my personal relationships with even my own mother, where once I shifted my perception she literally changed, and it’s not that she LITERALLY changed, so much as that I literally started seeing her differently. I started seeing her from the angle of, “Hey she actually is a lot of fun, and she has lots of cool things to offer and she’s kind of quirky” and all of this, rather than, “Oh my God, she just shits all over everything I do,” which is how it used to be. I changed my perception and started seeing a different side of her. When I was no longer triggered by the offhanded remarks she would make and so on, it no longer bothered me.

I’ve seen this with my students as well, where they might have a partner who’s really pushing their buttons when it comes to their business, but what it’s actually doing is it’s just showing them there’s a wound there and they’re pressing on it, and the moment you heal the wound… it’s nothing, it’s totally different and it transforms and heals entire relationships.

So, who’s getting in the way of your 6-figure business? 

No one but you, babycakes, and when it seems like other people are getting in the way, that’s an invitation for you to create some really beautiful and transformative shifts.

So, look within. Where is it a match? Where am I feeling that way? What belief of mine is this confirming, and work on changing that. You have 100% power.

And remember that if you’re looking to crack 6-figures in your business, I’ve got a really cool training to help you with that. The link is in the description. 

Until I see you next, keep embracing your beautiful and totally unlimited potential.

How to go from manifesting carparks to manifesting a full time income

How to go from manifesting carparks to manifesting a full time income

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 life – so you can have more money in the bank and get a lot more done with ease!

Are you a rockstar at manifesting carparks but when it comes to manifesting a full-time income in your business it’s not quite so easy?

So let’s talk about what it takes to go from manifesting carparks, to being able to manifest that full-time income in your business.

A really good starting point is to go back to the carparks because you’re doing that really well already. I know I have a parking fairy – I call on her and hey presto, a car I didn’t even know had anyone sitting in it suddenly puts the reverse lights on and pulls out right in front of where I’m going.

If that’s happening for you, then it means you’re already an awesome and powerful manifester. You already know what to do, you’re just applying it to one particular topic and not to another.

So, the best way to figure out what you need to do to manifest the full-time income to is look at the thing you’re already successfully manifesting and learn from it and then transfer those skills and that awareness to the topic of money and the income in your business.

When we look at “what does it feel like,” and “what do you do,” when it comes to manifesting carparks, there are a few factors that I’m sure you’ll find you’ll agree with me on.

Let’s go through them one by one:





Number one, it’s a bit of fun. You’re having a bit of fun and it’s a bit of a game, which means you’re not too attached to it, and you have this “lightness,” this “light” energy with which you approach it – learn from that, write that down!

Second, is that you kind of expect it. You like to prove it to yourself over and over again and you have this air of, “I wonder where it’s gonna show up because I know it will. It always does.” So you have this air of expectation, and that’s really important and powerful so write that down, too!

Third, is that you’re also unattached. You’re having fun with it, which is important it’s that “light” energy, and you’re unattached like, whether it happens or it doesn’t happen you’re not “Plan B-ing” around it. Maybe you do sometimes think about, “What if I don’t get it? Which carpark will I go into?” You’ll probably find that the days that you do that, you don’t get the beautiful street park that’s totally free and just right where you need it, you do end up having to go into a carpark and pay for your parking.

So the days where you’re not really attached and you don’t really have a plan B, you’re just like, “This would be so cool, and I know it’s going to happen, and I’m not obsessing over if it doesn’t happen,” … that’s when you get the carpark! Lack of attachment is a really important piece of that equation where you are manifesting what you want easily – so write that down!

Now, those are just three things, but there’s a million more, trust me, but we’re just gonna cover those three because I know you’ve got things to do today, right?

So let’s move on to the topic of manifesting the income you truly want in your business.

Step 1:

Are you having fun with it? Do you have a “lightness” about it? Are you treating it like it’s a bit of a game and you’re just kind of seeing where it goes and just enjoying the ride?

Step 2:

Do you truly expect it? Do you have this, “I know this happening, and I’m not sure exactly how because that’s not really up to me, that’s the magic of the universe at work, but I know it’s gonna happen and I wonder how.” Do you actually have that state of what I call “excited expectation,” or “positive anticipation?” You don’t have to be all like, “YEAH! OH MY GOD! MY MONEY! WHERE’S MY MONEY COMING FROM, I WONDER?! I’M SO EXCITED!” That’s not what I mean. It’s more that air of expectation with a state of a little bit of, “Ooh, I wonder how it’s gonna work out,” because it’s not your job to know the details.

Step 3:

Are you really unattached to it? Or are you really attached to it because you’ve got bills to pay, and you didn’t do so well last month, and blah blah blah blah blah, and you’ve got all these reasons why it HAS to work, which is a state of attachment and then you’re really focused on it not coming. It’s like you’re already planning to go into the paid carpark while you’re still driving around the street. You know you’re going to end up in the paid carpark the moment you start worrying about it and start thinking about. It’s exactly the same here. The moment you start going, “But what if it doesn’t happen,” then you’re focused on, “It’s not happening. It still hasn’t happened. There still isn’t the amount of money in the bank,” and all that stuff.

So, look at where you are manifesting really really well, and if it’s carparks, awesome. If it’s awesome people in your life, fantastic, use that. Look at what it is that you expect to have lots of and it’s not even something you have to second guess. Like you just know it, and you expect it.

You’re constantly calling that into your life and recognize that that’s your special skill. You have, on that topic, managed to release the resistance and got in alignment with it. If your thing is carparks, not everybody’s mastered that. If your thing is, beautiful people wherever you go, helpful people, kind people, not everybody has that. A lot of people manifest assholes into their lives! Whatever it is you’re doing effortlessly already, look at what it feels like, look at the way you approach it, learn from that, and start making the shifts on the other topic where you do want to make a change.

When you start doing that and applying it to the subject of your income, and shifting your internal state of being, your feeling state, it means you tune yourself to the level of income that you’re asking for, that you’re putting out there.

When you get into having fun with it, actually expecting it to come, and being unattached to the outcome, just those three for starters, it starts to flow.

So have loads of fun with that, and if you need a little bit more help make sure you grab my free Money Manifesting Training which will take you through the five reasons you’re not manifesting more money and what to do about it. You get the video training, and a really handy checklist to remind you of everything you learnt in the video training.

Here’s 5 tips to help you manifest more money, more easily:

The secret formula for manifesting an abundant business and life

The secret formula for manifesting an abundant business and life

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 why alignment is the key to a super successful business and life.

… But before we talk about that, let’s talk about what alignment actually is, because maybe you’re not 100% sure or maybe you just need a little bit of tweaking, or maybe you have no idea and you hear everybody talk about it and you wonder secretly, “What is it actually?”

So, alignment is when you, as the physical you, are connected with and in tune with the higher parts of you, your higher consciousness – the part of you that is part of the One Mind, the Universal Mind and all the intelligence that resides there.

Some people talk about it as their higher self, their soul, the collective unconscious, their unconscious mind, their inner being, there’s a whole number of words. What alignment is is when you’re no longer separate to that, when you haven’t cut yourself off from it and you’re not operating just from the paradigm of, “This Universe and this world I live in is a machine and I have to force my way through it through sheer hard work,”

It’s when you’re actually connected to all the intelligence, all the support that’s available to you at all times and you are tuned in so that you can receive the guidance that is there for you, which means that you act on impulse, you act on guidance. You act in guided ways and you enter a state of “flow,” where you’re not really thinking, but you’re “feeling” your way through life. You just know that now is the time to rest, and now is the time to go. That now is the time to call that friend you suddenly thought of, and now is the time to maybe not go to that function you were planning to go to that you’ve already paid for because it just doesn’t feel right. It comes from a place of higher guidance rather than from a place of overthinking it and fear.





Alignment is when the things you are seeking are actually there to guide you. It’s when you get to live in a state of flow and balance because everything is perfectly aligned and happening at the right time in the right way with the right people. It’s when you’ve kind of let go of the oars a little bit, in terms of you the physical finite part of you that you sometimes think is all there is to you. It’s when you’ve let go of the control of the oars and you’ve handed over and you’re putting your trust and faith into that higher part of you, your higher consciousness and the intelligence that is always sending you signals and guidance. You’ve learned how to tune in, and you’ve learned how to trust it, and you’ve learned how to compliment it with your own activity, because we still live in this material, practical world and part of us is this spiritual self that is connected to this amazing intelligence, this Universal Mind, this God consciousness.

It’s about learning how to dance the dance and live in both worlds and marry the two. It’s really your divine feminine that’s receiving the information and the guidance married to your sacred masculine, the part of you that knows how to act and do things and show up in the world. Both are important, and both are really beautiful and powerful. When you bring the two together, that is when everything flows.

This is why this state of alignment really is the key to a successful and fulfilling business and life.

All the practical strategies are very important, however, when you’re doing it from a place of, “I am on my own and this is all there is to me,” you’re doing it through simply your physical effort and that can only take you so far, whereas when you enter a state of alignment you actually tap into the leverage of the entire Universe and intelligence beyond what you could ever imagine, and coincidences and synchronicities that you never could have predicted will come to your aid and help everything unfold in perfecting timing and in magical ways.

That is why alignment comes first and truly is the key to that successful and fulfilling, joyous and magical business and life.

So, if you’d like to get yourself a little bit more alignment so that you can live in that beautiful state of flow, then ensure that you subscribe to my meditation library if you haven’t yet. It is a library of about 50+ Effectology meditations, which means that they’re all about helping you get into a state of alignment so that you can marry the magical with the practical and live in a state of flow.

The difference between personal responsibility and self-blame when it comes to manifesting what you want

The difference between personal responsibility and self-blame when it comes to manifesting what you want

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – the place where you get to marry the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the extra hustle!

Let’s talk about the difference between personal responsibility and self-blame.

You see, I teach that you are the creator of your life. When most people start to get that they go, “Yaaay, that is so awesome! It means that I have 100% responsibility for the world I’m creating!” Which means that not long after that they go, “Ooh, shit… I’ve created this, and that, and that, and that… if I’m 100% responsible, it means I get the blame. I’m to blame for all of the things that are wrong in my life,” and they don’t like that. That usually then leads to a state of guilt, self-judgment, and even self-punishment, and that’s not a good thing.

So the thing to recognize is that when you go into a pattern of self-blame and self-judgment and guilt, you’re actually acting from a place of ego. The ego that is very clever at keeping you stuck in an old pattern. When you’re so busy putting all your energy into blaming yourself, into going over what went wrong, how you’re the cause of it all and how you really just need to get your act together and stop screwing everything up – it takes a lot of energy to do that. When your energy is tied up in that self-blame, and that guilt, and that rehashing everything that went wrong, it means that you don’t have energy available to create the new. It keeps you from moving forward. That’s how clever the ego is.

It wants to keep you in the same old pattern where it feels you’ll be safe.





Remember that where your attention goes, your energy flows.

Everything that happens is neither good nor bad, it’s just feedback. It’s an opportunity for you to learn and decide to make some adjustments. Redirect your focus. Done! That is ALL you need to worry about when it comes to the past.

Whether things went right or wrong is almost irrelevant. It is all just feedback and an opportunity to learn so that you can move forward in an even better, even more beautiful way.

The thing is that money is usually the place where people feel the biggest urgency around this stuff, and where they beat themselves up the most. In my Magnetic Money Program, I see it all the time. People really blaming themselves and feeling so bad for all the things they did wrong, both on the practical physical level with their money, and on an energetic level when it comes to their money.

So that’s why I’ve created a special little video training that really helps you address the five reason you’re not manifesting more money and what to do about them. You can grab it from the link in the description, it’s totally free. It’s a 25-minute short, sharp, and shiny video training that even comes with a little handy cheat sheet to remind you of everything you learned in the training so that you can totally stay on track and take 100% personal responsibility and power to move you forward rather than being stuck in self-blame, guilt, and all that crap. We don’t want that. We want to move forward into abundance.

Grab yourself that from the link in the description and until I see you next time, remember to keep on embracing your amazing and unlimited potential.

How to grow your biz at the speed of light

How to grow your biz at the speed of light

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – the place where you get to marry the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the extra hustle!

Would you like to grow your business at the speed of light?

I know, sounds pretty sexy, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t? “Of course I would, Miriam! I want to do it now, now, now, instantly! Yesterday! Last week!”

Well, let’s talk about that and how that’s actually possible.

To do that, we’re going to jump topics to physics.

Why physics? Because the laws of physics describe the laws of the universe in which we live. The laws of the universe that govern you, your body, your business, and everything around you.

Now, the old model of physics is Newtonian physics, which is the physics of the physical. The physics of cause and effect. What that’s all about is the things you can see. At that level, it’s all about cause and effect, which means it’s about putting in some effort, pushing the boulder, transmuting that energy into a different form of energy so the boulder rolls down the hill and then it crashes into a cave wall and that changes it into a different kind of energy.

So, these are the laws of physics, energy laws, laws of motion, laws of cause and effect. That is the old model of reality, though, because, since Newton (God bless him) gave us his laws and helped us make sense of the world around us, we have moved on to much, much smaller components of our reality. We have dived into and started to uncover the world of quantum physics.

At the level of quantum physics, the subatomic level, the level of electrons, protons, quarks, and all sorts of little subatomic particles that we didn’t even know existed several years ago, it’s a whole different story. At that level of physics, which is still the physics of our reality because that is what every particle in the universe is made of – those are the building blocks of life itself – at that level, everything is actually energy. Yes, we’re talking about subatomic particles, but only to discover that they are nothing but pure potential and energy waves. In fact, they only become solid state matter when an intelligent observer – which is you or me or the instruments that we use in labs – observes them. That is when this particle energy wave decides to become a “thing.”

So we literally create our reality through observation, through our focus and awareness.




It’s a pretty crazy world, the world of quantum physics. It also tells us that everything is linked and communicating all the time and it communicates not by sending some signal that takes a little bit of time and has to travel through time and space, no, it communicates instantly. In fact, that even happens inside your body. In your body, there are chemicals being released without any electrical signal needing to be sent. There is no time delay between the trigger in your brain and the chemicals being released in your big toe. It’s instant communication and we still haven’t completely worked out how that all works, but we know it’s there.

So we’ve got electrons that are popping in and out of reality, going back to that state of pure potential, and we also have this reality that’s constantly rearranging itself, and is affected by consciousness itself… which is YOU!

Because you are energy, just like all these particles and subatomic particles I’ve been talking about. YOU are energy, but you are energy with consciousness. How cool is that?!

Just think about that.

You are energy that is aware of itself.

You are energy that can modulate and change its own frequency, and you get to affect the particles and the world around you by observing them.

You can change your world in an instant with the power of your focus, the power of your consciousness, which means the power of your belief and the power of your expectation. You are constantly rearranging and recreating your world. The trouble is… most people don’t realize they’re doing it, and they just keep creating the same reality over and over again. They’re living in that Bill Murray movie “Groundhog Day.” That is life for most people. Every day, the same story. But Bill Murray does something different – he LEARNS every single day and he EVOLVES. You can do the same. Your thoughts create your reality, and you get to choose your thoughts.

So, I want to guide you towards a meditation that’s going to kind of help you do that in a very conscious way. In my meditation library – which hopefully you’re a member of because it’s totally free and there are 52 hypnotic meditations that help you do all sorts of cool stuff (and if you’re not yet a member, click the link in the description) – there is one very special meditation called Quantum Visualisation. It really helps you tap into that quantum field and start to create your reality. It’s a super cool meditation. If you’ve seen it and you thought the word was a bit weird and you avoided it because you’re not a physics geek, go back! You’re more than a physics geek, you are the creator of your life and that is incredibly powerful! It means you don’t need to really totally understand the laws of physics, because you ARE the laws of physics personified.

Help yourself to that Quantum Visualisation which you will find in the meditation library.

Until I see you next time, keep on embracing your incredible and totally unlimited potential.



Start creating life on purpose with the Quantum Visualisation. You’ll find it in the Abundance section of my free library of hypnotic meditations.
