Tell the truth. If I saw your under garments right now would you be embarrassed? I promise I have a point.
The other day, I was cleaning out my closet and when I got to my…um… delicates I was faced with the startling realization that there was a pair of fancy underwear in there that I had bought specifically for my senior prom…in 1994!
I went to the store immediately and bought a whole bunch of pretty unmentionables, but it got me thinking – business is great! Why then, had I not purchased anything nice for myself in 20 years! (To be clear I HAD purchased underwear in the last 20 years, just not super sexy rock star ones!) I started to look around at some of the other areas of my life that were stuck in “scarcity”, “what if” and “not enough”. Makeup from the dollar bin. Cheap shampoo.
My soul and my work had emerged beautifully into abundance, but there were clearly still parts of my mind that were holding fast to a very narrow definition of “possible.” There must have still been some corner of my soul that didn’t feel worthy of all the awesomeness! Buh-bye old belief system!
I just finished reading Denise Duffield Thomas’s Get Rich Lucky Bitch (SUCH a fun and quick read!) and she suggests upgrading in baby steps. A better bra here, a fancy coffee there. And you know what? She’s spot on.
So here’s what I want you to do for yourself in the new year. Flip the switch to ON. When you start to upgrade step by step, you send a message to the universe that you are READY to receive! I get it. Looking in the mirror and affirming “I’m a millionaire” just makes your inner witch say “yeah RIGHT!” It’s what my friend Noah St. John calls the “belief gap.” And it can crush your manifesting mojo! But taking tiny steps, making incremental upgrades FEELS good. And when you feel good, you attract. It’s that easy. Buy the better coffee. Get the brand name purse. Not ten of them. Just one. And it doesn’t even have to be about buying anything. Light candles for your bath. Put on music while you cook. Do things that make you feel good.
I would love to hear what baby steps you are going to take to up-level your life. Leave a comment and let me know!
