Success & Spirit

Sometimes as we move towards our dreams we get to feeling like there’s a conflict between the “spiritual” side of our lives & the “material/wealth seeking” side. In reality, there is no conflict beyond that which we concoct. Neither part is higher or lower than the other. Yes, love, spirituality & compassion are absolutely important, but so is material success. The real internal battle is always growth vs. your internal “air conditioner”, that part of you that says “This is enough goodness/happiness/success for you. You may not have another morsel!” If you press onwards without addressing the AC you’ll be getting bigger than your beliefs allow & this creates conflict (been there too many times to count, still go there on occasion; they must have great cookies or something). That financial success is somehow “lower” than spiritual connection is an illusion, a convenient one of our invention that will certainly keep you out of the place of greatness.

EFT/tapping is a great way to eliminate those nagging beliefs that will keep you down or at least not able to get as up as you’d like. NLP is also another great way to change unhelpful beliefs as is the Ho’oponopono clearing technique (“I love you. Please forgive me. I’m sorry. Thank you.” Say them in any order.) Clearing out unhelpful stuff doesn’t have to take months. With the methods I’ve just mentioned you can clear them out in minutes or at the very least within days.

Another method is to simply say “thank you” to the crazy talk whispering in the background & immediately distract yourself from the bad feelings with something that feels better. Conflict & struggle don’t feel good. Not feeling good will keep the things you want away from you & bring more of what you don’t want. Thinking about spending fun time with a loved one I’d wager feels amazing. So does a nice soak in the tub. Find something pleasurable to focus on &/or do whenever the conflict feelings come up until they’re either gone or you decide to clear them out. You CAN have both if you integrate your desires. They’re no more separate than you are a neatly compartmentalized being. Integrate, appreciate & know that the Universe has your back.

Resistance is a marker that lets you know you’re on the right path. If you feel no resitance then you’re not getting out of your comfort zone; no stretching out of your comfort zone means you’re not growing. No growth = no resistance. Clearing limiting beliefs will help you get where you want to go faster. Otherwise you end up with the fun feeling of dragging along giant boulders with rubber bands. Not fun. Especially when you hit the end of the rubber bands & those darn boulders don’t budge. Having a cheering squad & mastermind group also is invaluable. This group is different from your friends in that they’re absolutely in your corner cheering you to succeed while being under no oblligation to buy into your “omigosh ain’t it awful!” trip.

Meditating, clearing out old programming using any of the techniques I’ve mentioned or others & refocusing on things that make you feel awesome when the conflicting feelings arise will help you sail through the bumpies & arrive in a place of your choosing.
