Remember when the lightbulb went off and you realized your ZONE OF GENIUS. You saw someone in need of help and you knew exactly what you needed to do, so you reached out and helped them without expecting anything in return. And they loved it, their eyes lit up and they were so grateful for your help. And thought to yourself, "Hey, I should teach others about this. I'm really good at this!"
THAT MOMENT... was the start of your passion, maybe even your business...
So, you did the work! You set it up and put it out to your online community, friends and family. At first, you offered free consults and clarity calls. It seemed like a great way to get new clients and some amazing reviews! You filled your schedule with free calls, showed up eagerly and full of passion. You not only delivered, but OVER-delivered. At the end of the session, you let them know all the ways they can continue the amazing work they just began with you. They asked a price and suddenly...
"I'd LOVE to work with you but I just can't afford that"
It's a crushing blow that feels personal.
REJECTION. It hurt your gut and your heart at the same time.
You begin to wonder if they realize how much value you just delivered in a single session that was totally free. Is it you and they're just saying that to be nice? Or maybe they really don't have the money and you should compromise to meet them halfway. Or the one we've all thought at one point or another, "Are my prices too high?"
Whether you're a healer, coach or marketer... you have been on the other end of this at some point in your business.
You finally take that step and put yourself out there, set up clarity calls and free consultations, get to the end of the free session with your client and they say the dreaded...
I'd love to work with you but I can't afford you.
This isn't them, it's you. Let me explain.
Without going too 'woo woo' on you for a minute, let's just break it down to beliefs. The things that you believe about what you can achieve are drawing your clients to you. So, if you have any doubts whatsoever about your belief to be able to:
- Deliver on what you promised
- Make the client happy
- Get paid on time
- Deserve to be paid what you're asking for
(and so on)...
You'll draw clients to you that mirror your beliefs. If you believe, "I need them to pay me on time" so that you can pay your bills on time, you'll attract a client that notoriously pays late. That's because they are mirroring your belief. Because you NEED them to pay on time so badly, you're clinging to it, which in essentially pushing it away from you.
Instead, if you have a belief like, "Money flows to me easily", you'll focus more on providing a valuable service without an attachment to needing to be paid. When there's no attachment to NEED, the peace and relaxation automatically draws money to you. You'll be existing from a place of trust, rather than lack and you'll just KNOW that everything is working out for you. This doesn't mean that you don't take action, it means that you take ALIGNED action. You'll focus on feeling good, healthy, happy and at peace with what you're offering AND how valuable it is! That type of amazing energy is what draws clients to you like a moth to a flame.
Working through lack and scarcity beliefs can take some time and effort, but I know one thing for certain... all you need is a strong intention to heal and some kick butt techniques to guide your way.
One of my FAVORITE ways to do this is through Prayer before bed. Prayer is not religious. It's a conversation between you and your soul. Just take a minute or two to program your subconscious mind, which will work with your soul to make things happen.
All I do is talk to my subconscious directly, something like this:
"Subconscious, what's the next step for me to take to start paying off my credit card debt? I want an answer on this by the time I wake up."
Your soul will then communicate the best course of action for you to take to your subconscious mind, which will remind you of it when you wake up. It's that easy.
And this is VERY important: EXPECT an answer by morning and LET IT GO. Keep a journal near your bed, go to sleep and write down what's on your mind when you wake up. Also, write down any dreams you have.
This process works, I promise! I do it every night and always wake up with answers.
Try it out and let me know! I want to hear what happened when you tried this out. Did you get the answer to your question by morning? Let me know in a comment.
p.s. Did you know that the Akashic Records can help you heal your money beliefs once and for all? I have a free video that talks all about it right here.
