Is the Universe testing me?

Is the Universe testing me?

Okay, this one should come with a warning label because I’m about to have a rant.

I’m sick of it. I’m so sick and tired of seeing and hearing women giving away their power.

The women I work with who are generally in business for themselves (which is the biggest personal development journey you can ever take yourself on) are aware of their power. 

They’re aware that we are the creators of our lives and that we live in this intelligent universe that responds to us through our thoughts, words and actions, emanating out as this signal that then has a feedback reaction happening. 

But here’s what I keep seeing over and over again. 

I keep seeing women – and I’m sure men do it too – saying, “The universe is testing me. The universe is sending me a message.” They think that the universe “tests” them, that the universe sends them secret little messages, and that the universe judges them… and I’m sick of it!

The universe does not test you, it does not judge you, and it does not send you secret messages. 

The universe is IMPARTIAL.

In fact, the universe isn’t a person, a thing, or a separate intelligence to you.

You. Are. The. Universe. YOU are the Universe.

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

It doesn’t judge and it doesn’t test, but YOU do. YOU second guess, YOU judge, and YOU put the hurdles in your way.

The universe is simply a matrix of intelligence that responds to your signal, and you’re the one who gets to choose what your signal is. 

The universe doesn’t actually get to choose how to respond to you. It responds to you only in one way – by feeding back to you what you are putting out. That is all it does!

It doesn’t modify the signal, it doesn’t say “Oooh, she’s not ready for this yet, let’s send back something different”, or “Let’s send a little test pattern first and see how she goes”, or “Oh God, she’s not ready for that yet. Who does she think she is?” 

The universe doesn’t do ANY of those things. The universe doesn’t get to judge. YOU get to judge, and you keep doing it!

You keep blaming the universe and giving away your power!

At the end of the day, the only person who has the power to create your reality is YOU and I’m here to say, “Step up and own it!”

You can’t have it both ways. 

You can’t say, “Oh yes, I want to manifest and create my reality, but the universe keeps judging and testing me.” 

Enough already! 

You are the universe! Step into it, own your power, I’m sick of it and I’m going to end this blog right there.

Just do it, and keep embracing your unlimited potential! Come on, baby, you can do it!

3 Hot Tips for Rewiring Your Brain With A New Money Story

3 Hot Tips for Rewiring Your Brain With A New Money Story

We all know that the unconscious mind is where all the hot action is, right?

Because everything that’s going on for you at the conscious level – 98% of that in fact – is completely driven by the unconscious mind.

The unconscious mind is brilliant. It takes over. It takes care of things for you.

It keeps your heart beating, your lungs inflating. It makes sure you don’t think about how to tie your shoelaces or get dressed in the morning, or how to walk for that matter. Remember trying to learn that? Yeah… me neither.

These things can be difficult in the beginning but once we master them, we become unconsciously competent. 

We just do them without even thinking about it.

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

So they get wired deep into our unconscious mind and they just kind of happen. They’re just on autopilot, which is fantastic for a huge number of things in life. Because I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit too busy to think about keeping my heart beating, and my lungs inflating.

However, what also happens is that sometimes we take on a story, a belief system, and we wire that into our unconscious mind.

Then everything we create, the way we unconsciously behave, the way we see the world and what we expect to get out of the world matches that unconscious belief. So we keep perpetuating this reality over and over and over again, and even though we may not like it, we kind of feel like we’re stuck with it… until we do something about it.

Doing something about it is all about starting to write and starting to live a new story.

When it comes to attracting money and abundance, growing your business, and all that good stuff, you’ve got an underlying old story that says, “This is how things roll.”

As you start to want to create a new story to replace it, you need to start talking about that story. You need to start acting in alignment with that story.

Now, the problem is that a lot of people go too fast, too hard.

They kind of stuff it up because what they inadvertently do is they wire in even more deeply the fact that there is a problem. By trying to fight it too quickly and go too hard too fast they’re actually being counter productive.

So that’s actually the first of the three tips I want to give you for writing a new money story:

Number one, don’t go too hard, too fast.

Go easy and realize that little incremental shifts that actually stick, are going to get you a whole lot further than you trying to make some ridiculous jump overnight that even when you’re saying it and thinking it, there’s a voice in the back of your mind that says, “What a load of bullshit.”

You want to NOT activate that voice that says, “This is bullshit.” That’s basically the aim of the game.

So go slowly and gently enough that you’re not activating that voice. Listen for it. If that voice pops up, back up a little bit and go a little gentler. You can do that over and over and over again and you are absolutely making progress.

The second tip I want to give you is that as you start talking about the way you do want things to be now, the way things are starting to become, you do exactly what I just did and you use “transitional language.”

“Starting to.”

“Becoming.”

“In the process of.”

And when you talk about the old pattern, put it in the past with your language.

Talk about what you used to do, and “In the past…”, and, “Back then this was an issue… but now I’m starting to see things differently. Now I’m starting to feel empowered about my money. Now I’m starting to notice that there’s opportunities everywhere. Now I’m starting to realize that the less I focus on and stress about money, the more money seems to flow, in fact I’m starting to think maybe that’s the secret to the whole thing, that I just focus on all the good stuff in my life, stop obsessing about money, and more money flows, because it happened again last week.

That little bit I added at the end there “because it happened again last week,” that’s the third tip I want to give you.

The third tip is to use what I call a “Universal Truth.”

Put in statements that you know to be true, and that you cannot argue with. Ones that voice that likes to yell out, “Bullshit,” from the back row cannot argue with.

I like to have a universal truth and yes, you can do it the way I just kind of gave you the example, where you state an actual thing that happened.

But a Universal Truth – even better – is like a mantra that you say right there and then as it’s happening. It’s you reinforcing that,”Yes, this is now starting to happen. This is now becoming my new reality. Yes, this is possible and these moments do happen. Look at that, I wasn’t even thinking about my business and people booked in and so it is true that I don’t have to be obsessing about it 24/7 to make money, in fact, sometimes, I’m doing nothing to do with my business and the money just flows.”

You want to reinforce it when it’s actually happening. Jump on that opportunity, pounce on it –  because this is your chance to really hammer it home, to really wire that into your unconscious mind.

So have a universal truth statement that you’ve got ready – because I’m pretty used to doing this and it kind of just flows – but in the beginning particularly, you want to have that universal truth statement ready.

It may sound something like, “But of course, there’s always plenty of money coming,” or, “But of course, everything always works itself out.” You want a statement that you cannot argue with, and that is a universal truth that you use in the moment that applies across the board.

Things like, “That’s right, the universe always has the bigger picture in mind,” and, “That’s right, the universe is always looking out for me,” and, “That’s right, everything’s always working out,” and, “That’s right, money always shows up,” or, “That’s right, the bills do always get paid.”

So you have that universal truth, you have that statement ready, and you throw it in there. And you want that to be very general, a very nice general statement. Something, like I said, that the voice from the back row has nothing to talk about.

So my favourite universal statement is, “Everything is always working out for me. It all works out.”

Mike Dooley mentioned one, I don’t know if it’s actually his that he uses regularly, but he says one and it was, “It’s always working”.Even though I can’t always see it, it’s always working.”

What that does, is you’re using it right there in that moment and it helps you really wire in that this is the new reality.

So remember that, number one, don’t go too hard too fast.

Number two, use transitional language.

And number three, use those statements of universal truth to keep reinforcing right then and there that everything is always working out for you because, baby, it totally is.

Now, as far as rewriting your money story goes, the number one place to start is the very tip of the iceberg. When you start at the tip of the iceberg, you make sure you don’t miss anything.

The tip of the iceberg is called your Money Habit Archetype. It is that big picture pattern of how money shows up for you in your life, over and over and over again. It encompasses all the little different situations. Once you become really aware of that and know how to use that, then you can use that information to rewrite that old money story, so the pattern that’s surfacing can shift.

So it starts with knowing your Money Habit Archetype and if you haven’t done it for a while – or if you’ve never done it – then make sure you jump on my Money Habit Archetype quiz, to which you will find the link in the description.

So hop to it, get started now!

Let’s transform that money story of yours, remember the three hot tips I gave you, and until I see you next, make sure you keep embracing your unlimited potential.

3 reasons you can’t manifest when the stakes get higher

3 reasons you can’t manifest when the stakes get higher

Hi, this is Miriam Castilla. 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!

Why is it that when the stakes start getting higher, it becomes so much harder to manifest what you want?

Do you experience that?

I’ve been there myself. I had the car parking fairy giving me rockstar carparks – no matter where I was going. Fringe Festival in Adelaide, city overflowing with locals and tourists from all over the world… not a carpark to be found in the whole city, but mine was always there waiting, right outside the ticket box or the venue I was going to. Tickets to concerts, invitations to really cool parties and events, or even free holidays. I could manifest all sorts of things like that, but when it came to clients, income, or a more effortless flow to my business I was hitting a brick wall.

So, why is it so easy with the little stuff but when the stakes get higher, we hit that brick wall?

Let me tell you three reasons why:

WATCH THE VIDEO:

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Number one, we have this belief that we’re raised with in hard work. That if you really want that tangible, serious outcome that gives you respect and acknowledgement from the people around you, you have to deserve it and have earnt it through your hard work. That is why in the Effectology Method Program we clear that old bullshit story with hypnosis, because that’s just not true… unless you choose to believe it and then it becomes very, very true for you!

The second thing is that you don’t have stability in your vibration. You’re not energetically and vibrationally stable enough and that means that as soon as something means more to you, as soon as you’re a little bit more attached to it, you start worrying and doubting and anytime something appears to not be going right you worry even more which throws your vibration off even more.

You don’t have that stability, which means means your vibration is very susceptible to every little thing that’s going on in your outside world.

You’re not controlling life, life is controlling you.

The only way that you’re going to get past that is with consistency.

Consistency of practice of stability in your alignment. That means you have to do those things that bring you into alignment and help you stay in alignment, CONSISTENTLY. Not just for a week, or month, or here and there, or when you remember, or when you really want something, but ALL THE TIME. In the beginning it’ll be harder work because you’re not used to it, and then once you get to a place where you actually have that beautiful flow and that becomes your new normal, it actually becomes very easy and there’s no way you’d ever go back to not practicing and doing the things that keep you in alignment.

It’s a little bit like brushing your teeth. You know, when you were little your mum probably had to force you to do it a few times, but now you wouldn’t really want to leave the house without doing it. it would just feel weird and your whole day would feel off.

And the third one is a lack of faith. You don’t really believe it. You don’t really trust it. You kind of hope it does happen, but deep in your heart you didn’t believe it. Let’s be honest. That faith can only come from proving yourself right.

You really do need to get over that hurdle and prove yourself right so that you believe it. That means that you’ve gotta stick with it and the only way you can stick with it often enough and for long enough that you can prove yourself right so that that faith becomes innate, is through deep immersion.

That means that you dive into an environment where you practise this and you see the results consistently enough that you can then shift your doubt to faith. You do that for long enough that it sticks… that the scales tip.

This is why my Effectology Method Program is a 6-month program.

There are no silver bullets!

It’s only through immersion and consistency and the strength of your desire, which is what’s going to make you take that dive into the immersion and keep up the consistency, and if you have a support network around you like we do in the Effectology Method Program that helps you stay on track, that’s fabulous, but it’s only through the depth of your immersion, the level of your consistency, and the level of your desire that you can break through.

That is how you get to that place where you DO have faith, you ARE consistently stable enough in your vibration, and you no longer have all those old BS beliefs that keep holding you back.

The best consistent habit that I can recommend to you to help you stay in alignment and reach alignment every single day is meditation. There is a reason why every spiritual teacher on earth will suggest meditation, and will highly, highly recommend you meditate. it allows you to dive deeper within. It’s a little moment of self immersion and it’s the consistency of that practice that then helps you get those results that produce the faith.

So, if you haven’t got access to my meditation library yet, please grab it now. It’s totally free! There are 52 meditations, one for each week of the year, and they’re hypnotic which means they really help you generate a certain state and achieve a certain outcome and connect you very deeply with your unconscious mind. grab that from the link in the description and get practicing!

How to get on top of debt once and for all

How to get on top of debt once and for all

Hello beautiful,

It’s Miriam Castilla here and welcome back to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – the place where we practice the art & science of Effectology to help you marry the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the extra hustle!

Today we’re going to talk about what’s going on when you just can’t get ahead on your debts and what to do about it.

So I’m talking about debts, mainly credit card debt, that kind of thing, maybe car loans – consumer debts – and it’s really crippling stuff and can just hang around forever and ever and ever and it seems like you never make any headway on it.

Now, what’s important to realize is that these kinds of debts are really expensive with interest rates of 20 to 22% – sometimes even higher – on them which means you’re paying that much more on that thing you paid for it and so if it was a bargain and on sale that’s why you put it on your credit card, think again because you’re actually paying 20% more for that thing!

WATCH THE VIDEO:

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

So it’s a really expensive debt and you’re being charged interest on interest on interest as time goes on. That’s the power of compound interest which can set you financially free if it’s working in your favor. Here it’s actually working against you and so that’s why it feels like you just can’t get on top of it because interest is growing and then it’s interest on interest on interest. And so it’s like I talk about having money babies by using compound interest in your favor – this is the opposite of that, right? And so you need to be aware of that.

So we want to get rid of that thing.

Now the issue for most people is that they’re really just kind of making their minimum payments – sometimes a little bit extra but there’s no real system and there’s no real focus and the power of focus is what’s going to set you free.

So i’ll give you an example:

We all use the 60-watt lightbulbs around our house, most people use 60-watters. Now they are just a little bit ambient light, a little bit hot if it’s been on for a while, nothing really too powerful. Now the reason that even though there’s quite a bit of power there, they’re really harmless is because the light just kind of sprays in all directions, there is no focus. Now if you took all those lightwaves and you actually got them to be congruent which means focused, all parallel and all inline and pointing at the one thing, you could actually cut (with the same amount of wattage) through steel!

That is the power of focus. And your mind is a really powerful focusing mechanism and money and compound interest also benefits from this power of focus.

So all you need to start doing is actually focusing in and getting a little bit of a system in place. Paying off one debt strategically with a plan and really focusing on it and then moving on to the next one and the next one and the next one, but the difference is that you have a plan and your focus is almighty.

Now, if you’d like to get started on that I have an awesome freebie for you. It’s my debt elimination planner. This is actually the same process that I teach in the Magnetic Money program and you can take yourself through it and get started right now. The link to grab it, totally free, is in the show notes right here so grab yourself that and have an awesome time with it.

Enjoy the power of focus, watch your debt just domino and disappear and until next time, keep on embracing your beautiful, unlimited potential.

Bye!

How to work one day less and make more money

How to work one day less and make more money

How to work one day less and make more money

(scroll down to watch the video or access the audio)
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!

Those stories you tell yourself are HYPNOTIC!

The more you tell them, the more you believe them and so the more you create more of the same.

Because baby, never ever forget that WE CREATE OUR OWN REALITY and the stories you tell are POWERFUL!
