BIG Shifts can create a good amount of stress in your world, but having to deal with fears about money can be the thing to put you over the top. Let's explore some money myths and memes to shift your perspective on the money game.
Myth #1: I'll never have enough money. You don't have to settle for the way things are. In order to shift this belief you have to (1) consider that it's possible and (2) tap into your desire for abundance. The constricted feel of this meme let's you know it's not true. You are a child of the universe and deserving of ALL the good things in life.
Myth #2: Money is the source of all evil. Wanting money doesn't make you selfish or bad. Money gives you the means to lead the kind of life you want: fulfilling, exciting and independent. Being financially abundant gives you choices so you can live a more rich and rewarding life. It also gives you the power to share your abundance with those movements that matter most to you.
Myth #3: Money is scarce. Abundance for you does not mean lack for someone else. You don't have to take anything away from someone else to build your wealth. The universe expands, and so does money. It's the focus of your flow that makes the difference.
Myth #4: You need to have money to make money. Think of all the ‘success stories' you've heard. There are so many people who came from nothing and have created an abundant life for themselves, and others. You don't have to have a lot of money to make more money. You just have to be willing to step up and claim yours.
Myth #5: Wealth requires sacrifice. You don't have to give up anything to become wealthy. Financial flow is a choice, not a sacrifice. There will be trade-offs. You might have to put off having certain things, but that's a choice. You get to decide.
Myth #6: You can't make money doing what you love. The legion of creative entrepreneurs that are taking hold of the marketplace illustrates that the time has now come to align your work in the world with what powers you up. All you need to do is take the leap.
There are an infinite number of money myths, these are just a few frequent flyers. Naming your own money myths is a powerful practice. Tuning in to your money memes and myths is just another invitation to experience your ability to expand your power, clarity and vision. Game on!

Don't you want to access this level of power during your BIG Shift?
Remember a time when you were the recipient of kind words. It could have been a teacher that singled you out for a special acknowledgement, or maybe recognition at work for a job well done. Words create a ripple effect that can impact your world in powerful ways.
The converse is also true. Think of moments when you indulged in criticism or found yourself complaining incessantly about something? What happened to your energy? Did you find that your outlook took a downward spiral?
Your energy is powerful and your words embody energy. Whether you choose to go positive or negative, you will find your energy expands in that direction. Energy flows where focus goes. What if you could direct the outcome of your BIG Shift by choosing words that powered up your being?

Words are way more than a means of communication, they shape your beliefs, behaviors, feelings and ultimately your actions. Your words can either magnify problems or invoke possibility.
Here are 4 ways that you can use the power of your words to spark up your BIG Shift:
Words are powerful containers for energy and possibility. Choose words that expand, enlighten and energize you and those around you. You'll zoom through your BIG shift when you use the power of your words for love and for light. Yeah, baby, you've got that kind of power.
BIG Shifts create dynamic changes in every area of your world. The winds of change create ongoing opportunities to sweep away all that no longer serves you, if you're willing to let it go. BIG Shifts are an opportunity to clean house, inside and out.
If you're longing for times when things felt solid, certain and sure you're on for a wee bit of disappointment. The truth is that your life has always been open to cycles of change, chaos and high powered energy. There's always been a clarion call to something grander, deeper, more. You might have managed to subdue it for a while – finding a partner, raising a family, pursuing a career or business. Living does keep you busy. At some point, however, you might feel like you're missing an essential ingredient. This void can't be filled by outside sources, it's an internal call waiting to be answered.
If you're looking for ‘the way' somewhere out there it will elude you. This approach is characterized by lack – something out there is going to make it better. But the ‘the way' isn't out there, it's in here. I'm certain you've glimpsed the pulsating presence of your greater being in the shifting sands of the self.
The way is most often stumbled upon surprisingly, and often very Dorothy-like, you realize you've had the answer all along placidly poised within you. So much depends on the eyes with which you chose to see the world. If you choose a wounded perspective you'll find evidence of it everywhere. When you look through the eyes of your heart life is a wondrous adventure . Even BIG Shifts are an opportunity to expand, explore and relish the juiciness of the journey.
You are on a quest for authentic power. You cannot give up this quest. Your only choice is whether you wish to have the quest consciously or unconsciously. Gary Zukav
So what's possible? Anything and everything! You are who you choose to see and be. It's so simple, isn't it? So simple that the majesty of it escapes us.
What does it take to be this way? It takes a commitment to full engagement, awareness, and consciousness. It means being awake even when it would be easier to be asleep. It means taking responsibility for your life and the world that you see. And yes, you create the world you see with your every thought, word and action. You get to choose the quality of your experiences, relationships and the scope of the adventure.
This moment deserves your full attention, for it will not pass your way again. Dan Millman
The really good news is that you can always choose again. The past is gone, the future is yet to be. The only moment where you can choose is NOW. Choose again – choose life, choose love, choose YOU.
