Oil & Water.
Fire & Ice.
Affluence & Assumptions.
Some things don’t mix.
Tax season is upon us and many of my consultations have dealt with the issues of money & business. I love talking cash+profit. Brainstorming about how people can make more money & haul more lucre into their businesses is one of my favorite things to do. What I have noticed this year–what I have been playing with–is the intersection between assumptions & affluence.
It was through firsthand experience that I learned its both possible & profitable to shelve assumptions and self-limiting thoughts.
Milagro Roots would never have been born if I had not done exactly that…I started the business during the financial collapse of 2008 and went full time into it at the beginning of 2009-when we still had not “recovered”–whatever that word means.
In speaking with clients I became aware of how frequently I heard language and thoughts that were couched in assumptions such as…
“I know I won’t do as well as I did last year because I lost that employee/account/connection/retail space…”
“my entire industry is in a downturn right now, chances for success this year are slim to none…”
“my broker retired, now I have this new guy and he just doesn’t seem to get me…”
“I am creatively fried…there is nothing more to give my business and I have no way out…
Sound familiar? Sound like some of the words that might be wailing on the self-pity violin in your head? The truth is that none of these ideas are real or factual. They are opinions, assumptions, baneful little mind weeds that took root in & were nourished by your fear & negative self-talk. Stop. Right. Now.
Take a breath and look up at the sky–wide, open, limitless. Since the full moon will be in Virgo on Thursday (read: earth sign Virgo+Jupiter ruled Thursday=cha-ching!) this week let’s practice a little fiscal+mental conjure & turn these dead-end, dull, & useless assumptions around:
“Thank the Universe that I lost that employee/account/connection/retail space! Talk about an albatross around my neck–finally I can breathe again and get on with what needs getting done!”
“My entire industry is in a downturn which means that its my time to shine baby! No one touches my level of expertise and ability, what better time to stand out from the crowd and make my mark?!”
“My broker retired. He did right by me but I am excited to see if this new fellow will be open to X, Y, & Z ideas that my old guy never went for.” (And remember, in this case, you can always walk away from the table and work with someone else)
“I am creatively fried…which means I need to rest, recuperate, and give myself space-and man, can we say V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!”
Get your ritual on:
Wednesday evening light a black or white candle dressed with a banishing type oil and put those negative thoughts underneath it. Let the candle burn all the way down and take any remains to a 4 way crossroads-bury them or if everything is ash spread the ashes to the 4 winds.
Then on Thursday get a white, yellow or purple candle and place your positive cash-ffirmations underneath it. Dress it with an oil for attracting good things to you (or olive oil that you have charged up through prayer, chanting, or general good vibes) and allow it to burn on Thursday evening-drenched in the full moon light. Bury those remains in your front yard or in a container plant near your front door (to usher in wealth+abundance of course!).
