When I mentor my female clients clients on how to tap into their inner confidence, feminine power and their biggest desires, one of the very first things we work on is mindset.
Truth is, it isn't a lack of skill, capability or experience that holds most of these awesome gals back, is their emotional mindset – or what I like to call a Goddess Mindset.
So what is a Goddess Mindset?
It's the deep down core belief that YOU are worth it!
Creating a Goddess Mindset and tapping into our internal goddess (feminine) energy are my favorite teaching principles. Why?
Because of who it calls you to become NOW. The truth is – there's no way you can hide out, play small, stay scared or doubt you can have the relationship you long for or the career you dream about….unless you truly embody the Goddess that you are. You are right now attracting people and experiences into your life that are in congruent to how you feel about yourself.
I have learned so much from being a law of attraction coach and trainer. I may not know everything, but I do know alot. Bottom line, it doesn't matter what you desire or what you make dream boards about – it just won't come into your life (or stay in your life), if you don't value yourself FIRST.
So how do you develop this Goddess Mindset?
First, you make the decision. A decision to commit to you. Then you 'authentically-raise the bar' in key areas of your life - so that everything supports this awesome, empowered way of thinking.
Here are 3 ways to start.
1. Create a Goddess-like Environment.
Your environment is a reflection of what you believe now. Think of it this way, you have dreams based on the 'good feeling' you believe will be yours once the dream is here, right? The way to bring that good feeling dream into manifestation – is to feel good now, not wait until when you have the desire – but NOW – this feeling is what is attracting the same to you, in ways known and unknown.
So, does your office and home surroundings reflect your personal style, your dreams and make you feel good today?
Do you have too much 'stuff' piling up in corners, closets and on counter tops? The feminine energy is about flow and clutter stops the flow. Your energy
is of beauty and creativity too. What is the beauty around you that gives you pleasure and inspires you to feel good now?
I practice clutter avoiding. After a couple of days, if I see a pile of mail or papers piling up – I take care of it immediately. I also made this a habit, whenever I bring something new into the house, I get rid of something that no longer serves me – an exchange of old for new. There's a Goodwill store near me and it feels so good to give them my old stuff as I know if serves someone else in need. These days, I'm cleaning out more than I'm bringing in. This also creates an energetic space for my deeper desires fill. Oftentimes, what we desire does not have any 'room' to show up because our life and environment is full of clutter.
Your environment has a huge impact on your success and you feel about yourself. Surrounding yourself with beauty and luxury doesn't have to be expensive to bring you a pleasurable feeling now.
I love scented candles and music. Not only do the candles relax me and put me in creative mood, the music makes me want to move my body - and movement opens up my inner goddess life force energy! Remember your energy flows inside out – feel good and let it flow.
2. Talk Like a Goddess
What are you telling yourself, day in and day out? I know you've heard this before but it is worth repeating because knowing and doing are 2 different things – the point is to know and do what I am about to share.
Most women are playing a recording in their heads of self criticizing, judging, comparing, and despairing. None of that negative dialog is good enough for you or your Goddess Mindset.
Here's a simple, empowering action step to uncover some of the self-sabotaging messages you're likely not even noticing right now. For one day this week, have a notebook on your desk and just notice what goes on in your head throughout the day. Write those down with judgments, just observations – like a journalist.
At the end of the day, read over the journal notes. What are the dis-empowering thoughts or beliefs that come up again and again? (Examples: "I can't afford it," "I am too fat, too skinny, too old or too young to have, do or be that" and any version of "not enough.")
Pick one message to transform into your new Goddess talk, starting right now. Think about it this way, if a Goddess came down to earth to show you how to be a Goddess – would she be saying any of these negative things to you or about herself? No way – remember, YOU ARE that Goddess. You're going to feel sooo much lighter and loving!
3. Be a Prospering Goddess
I don't talk about money here too often. However, I know it is important and very much contributes to who we believe we are and the confidence we have in ourselves.
How do you feel about money and your level of prosperity? Are you sabotaging your money flow because you don't see it in your pocket now? This happens when you un-intentionally dishonor what you do have now, as in – "it's not enough or the amount is insignificant."
Cleaning up your money stuff can be overwhelming, so here's a simple place to start. Track EVERY penny that comes to you, every day. Remember, it all counts – the interest on your 401k, your partner's money, lucky pennies you find in the street and the income you have now. When you honor all of it, regardless of the amount, you are opening up an energy to allow more to flow to you. Again, the feminine energy is about flow – not force, struggle or rules.
Also, you will only attract new clients (or a new job) – and get paid what you are worth - when you do the work by valuing what you have now.
…..and when you value yourself first, others will follow. It's a beautiful thing!
