Transcend Limiting Beliefs

Prosperity is available to everyone. The inner world creates the outer results. One’s energy vibration brings into reality the exact frequency of the matching vibration. If a person is engaging in low energy thoughts and actions, the yield will be a low energy result. The energy vibration is activated by thoughts and emotions. People who do not experience prosperity have not developed prosperity consciousness. Many new thought leaders and students have contributed to the body of knowledge to help people increase their energy vibrations and prosperity consciousness. Sometimes this has resulted in people feeling that they are “bad” or are “doing something wrong” and that is why they are not getting what they want. The truth is that every person has limiting beliefs that program thoughts which lead to repeated patterns of lack.

There are many ways to transcend limiting beliefs and I  believe that each individual is empowered to transcend their own limiting beliefs through connection with the Higher Self, Source, or God- Mind. Embracing the thought that Source is unlimited, Source is our supply, therefore our supply is unlimited is the key to moving from a consciousness of lack to a consciousness of prosperity. Developing a consciousness of prosperity brings forth all of our material needs and desires.

True prosperity is a combination of actions and choices that raise our energy vibration and increase our sense of connection with Source. Actions involve meditation, prayer, believing, giving generously, acting on intuitive guidance, positive affirmation, visualization, choosing wisely, receiving, and living in conscious awareness of thoughts.

It is possible to  quickly release limiting beliefs and through doing this people can transcend their old stories rather than stay stuck at the same static energy vibrations with minimal results. We live in a universe of possibilities, love, and abundance. It is my deepest desire to see people step out of their old stories and live with the peaceful, prosperous, and inspiring mindset of knowing that there is indeed unlimited supply.

I never knew how strong I was going to have to be

I feel like I know you- my blog readers. I have been writing here for a few years now… and  I feel like you know me, like you know my heart.  However, I started being guided to share how I became the person I am today. You may know part of the story, you may be surprised by some of it, too. We all have a journey… a story to tell. Some of us are crushed by our stories, others become stronger. In my young life,  thankfully, I never knew ahead of time exactly how strong I needed to be.

A tragedy shaped my path in life. I grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota and lived a comfortable life. My parents were conservative. My brother and I thrived at both school and athletic activities. We also were involved in our church. As a family we ate dinners together and took long walks in the woods. We were close, or so I thought.

One day, I walked home from school when I was seventeen years old and found my brother who was fifteen years old after he had taken his own life. I found him after he had shot himself in the head and he was in his room lying in a pool of blood.  My world shattered. I missed my brother and I felt my whole world was based on a lie. I felt like I did not know who I was anymore because I always identified myself through my family identity.

I drifted for several years without a clear direction. I turned down full ride scholarships so I could be closer to my parents. I took some classes at our local college. I put one foot in front of the other, but I was deeply grieving. I was in therapy for a year and it helped soothe some of the pain. In outward appearances, I seemed to be doing okay. My ambitions returned. I felt like I could maybe be okay, but I never thought I would experience true happiness again. I became involved with a much older man who struggled with alcohol addiction and stayed in that relationship for five years. Then, I met my husband. I have been married for twenty years. I became a step-mom. We gave birth to our first daughter. When I held my daughter in my arms the day she was born, I began to feel deep joy again. We had two more children and my career was thriving (I finished college, earned my master’s degree and eventually my PhD.). I felt happy when I was with people. When I was alone, I felt empty and lost. Steady happiness remained elusive. I felt guilty about it, because I had a great family and a great career- I felt like I had no excuse. I should be happy, but I wasn’t.

Then I began to spiritually awaken. I always prayed (my whole life). And I knew God was there for me, but I had fallen into the habit of praying at night, being in church on Sunday and God was out of the picture for the rest of the time. I began to see that God was there for me all of the time and I could trust God.

Success and Transformation

I have been an avid reader throughout my life and often read a book a day. I began reading holistic books centered on mind, body, and spirit. I read books on healing, success, mindset, and happiness. It was during this time that I had a paradigm shift; I was standing in the middle of an airport traveling for my job. I had my corporate credit card, my laptop in my briefcase that I was pulling along, and I looked around. I thought, “This is it. I made it. I have achieved everything I wanted.” I felt triumphant. In the next instant, I was crushed and thought, “Oh no, this is it? This is all there is?”

I thought my career would make me happy and I thought my family would make me happy. The truth is that I discovered that happiness came from within.  So I started praying and meditating on my next move. Shortly after this, I woke up one morning and had the stunning realization that I could be happy if I chose it. All I had to do was choose happiness just like all of the other choices I made in a day. I decided to choose happiness. I began a journaling practice to get myself on the happiness track every day.

I still had to decide what I wanted to do about my career. I prayed and meditated. I decided that I would lean on intuitive guidance and be patient. After a few weeks, I woke up one morning and knew I needed to start my own coaching, training, and consulting company. Within six months of starting my company, I published my first book, Keys to Living Joyfully. For twenty years I had a goal of writing a book and it was on the back burner.  Suddenly, it felt like I was an author overnight. I never had a goal to write more than one book and within four years, I had written and published three more books. All of my books felt like they wrote themselves. It was a natural intuitive process.

I began working with my own coaching clients six years ago. I have helped people define what success means to them and have been by their sides as they have made quantum leaps in their lives. My clients have written books, changed careers, saved their careers, started and/or grown businesses, produced movies, taken action on long procrastination lists, created more happiness, traveled the world, learned how to get what they really want out of life, and made lasting changes and shifts.

I expanded again when I began studying metaphysics. I learned how to develop my intuition to a very high degree. I also learned that I have been empathic my whole life and never knew what it was. I had been told that I was too sensitive during my entire childhood. I began to look at my empathic ability as a great gift and have found that it helps me be a very good life coach. All of my business decisions have been intuitively based and I found that I enjoy including guided visualizations and energetic alignments during my sessions with clients.

To me success is part of an acronym that I was divinely given called BOLD. Be a great manifestor. Own your goals/responsibility. Live each day with more peace, passion, energy, and joy. Do and be what you were meant to do and be. I was given these concepts as a divine gift during sleep. I awoke with these ideas and knew, intuitively, that they were important. I continued to develop the concepts through intuition and research.

Success Depends on This

greenheartquote

 

 

What you need to almost guarantee success is burning desire. Authors W. Clement Stone and Napoleon Hill assure us that without burning desire, you will not achieve a high level of success. Burning desire is a rare thing. Most people do not dare to cultivate a burning desire for anything because the second you allow a burning desire, there a fears that get churned up. “What if I can’t do it?” or “I don’t know how to make it happen.” or “What will people think?” are some fear related thoughts that may arise for you.

Why is it important to cultivate burning desire for your goal or goals? Burning desire is what carries you through when things go wrong or very, very slow. Burning desire keeps you going. Without burning desire you could end up stopping just when things are about to break open. Burning desire assures that you will cross the finish line.

If you have a goal and you feel like you have lost that burning desire or never really had it in the first place, what do you need to do to get it?  First, look at the real reason, the real why. This is why you want the goal. What difference will your dream make in your life and the lives of others?  Next, let yourself be filled with burning desire. Think about your goals as if they are really happening. See yourself achieving each phase of the goal. What does that feel like? Be the energy of your goal. It takes some practice, but as everyone who has ever achieved worthwhile goals realizes- it is worth the effort.

If you would like some help in creating goals that ignite a burning desire within you- Click Here to book a free coaching session with me. I have a limited number of free sessions that I offer each month- so if you are excited about this- be sure to book right away.

Transcend Old Stories with this Simple Method

sparklesun

Feeling stuck with some limiting beliefs or “old stories” playing around in your head?

You can transcend old stories by using a very simple, yet effective method-  an affirmation:

Close your eyes- put your hand over your heart, take a few deep breathes.

Say “ I am now completely free of all of my old stories. I am transcending them now. I am moving to a higher level of consciousness. I am free now from any limiting beliefs, any old stories that I am consciously aware of and any that are below the surface on the unconscious level. I am completely free right now.”

Did you shift? Use that new sense of freedom to step into action.  Move into action. It is okay to try things and everything does not have to be perfect. You are not going to have a great inspired life if you don’t get out there and act on your inspiration.

 

Warmest,

Sheri
