Having an online business is not for everyone. There are some days I feel as if I am beating my head against a wall wondering if anyone "out there" is listening to my very awesome and wise council. Some days I just want to throw in the towel and get a "real" job. Bah!
For instance, for weeks I have been launching a new program. I have done all the things one does as an online entrepreneur does when launching something. I have done Facebook lives, I have uploaded those videos to YouTube, I have emailed my list,posted on Instagram and Pinterest, I have posted, posted and posted some more.
And today in my own group, someone was asking me, "What program are you doing?" Sigh.....
You see in my mind I am all over the internet, but in reality people aren't either seeing or paying attention to my posts, offers, program.
Such is the life of an online biz owner at times. I am not complaining though, because I get to work from home or anywhere I want really, and I get to connect with and help women all over the world.
For me it is a nice reminder that just because I feel like I am marketing myself like crazy, it does not necessarily mean that I am. I know there is more I can do, and there is also stuff I can let go of as well.
Expectations are a great thing to let go of. How it will all come together is another thing I can let go of. Worry and fretting is awesome to ditch. Doubt and fear can go away...bye bye.
I can follow the energy of my actions, see where they take me, then I can course correct along the way, knowing the Universe has my back and will help me out (if I ask, listen then do the action).
Today as I was tuning inwards and asking my spiritual helpers what I needed to share with my people, I heard "cleanse your energy". And I was all like that is cool, do a little energy healing and boom, all clear.
I heard, "no, call back your energy from all the places you have left little bits of yourself." Hmmm....okay what does that mean?
I was shown all the Facebook groups I joined and never visit, all the email subscriptions that I never read, all the services I signed up for but never use, that kind of thing.
When you think about it, it makes sense that you have your energy all over the place; tiny little bits that don't seem like much until you start to investigate all of the many many many (in my case) places I left my energy. It can add up. Now maybe you feel it and maybe you don't.
What I did this morning after I channeled all this goodness was I started unsubscribing, leaving groups, deleting services that I just don't use. I called my energy back; my soul fragments if you prefer, my power. I did this with intention and purpose.
Do I feel different? I do actually. I feel lighter. I feel more present, more awake. Is this because I did all of the above? Maybe. It could be the second cup of coffee. I think it is the former though. That was my intention, and I trust the process.
Give it a try and see how YOU feel. Then let me know. I would love to hear from you.
Happy calling your energy back!
They say you have officially made it when you get your first hater. I don't know about that, but I did get my first blog comment that was not really a hater remark, but not complimentary either.
I will never understand why folks will go out of there way online to point out why they don't like what you have to say. And honestly, after reading the comment twice, it wasn't even that clear what they had to say. If you are going to go to the trouble to be a hater, at least be clear about it.
It is such a waste of energy in my opinion. But you see, we each think and feel what we do, and it is all good.
Everyone is very much entitled to their own opinions. I see stuff all the time on social media that I don't jive with, but do I go out of my way to tell them what they think is wrong or bad or whatever? Um, no. I just keep on keeping on because that might just be their truth, and who am I to say what is true or untrue from someone else?
So next time you see something you don't agree with, maybe stop and ask yourself if responding with "your" opinion is about you wanting to be "right" and not in the spirit of a great conversation starter.
Just my two cents....
This morning as I was writing and channeling information to share with my people, I heard to chat about embodying trust. And I wrote a few things to talk about around trust and believing that the goals we set will come to us and other cool stuff.
I went live in my Facebook group to share all about it actually, and I was feeling pretty pumped up too. And then the dreaded internet connection began acting up. I don't usually have internet issues, so I just closed it out and tried again. And again. I moved rooms. I switched to my business page thinking I just needed to be over there and not in my group.
And I continue to talk even though I knew maybe I was not even live. I talked and talked to myself. It was kinda wacky, but I realized that the message I received this morning was really for ME. Duh!
So after I laughed a bit at how dense I can be sometimes. I began to work on some other stuff for a bit and caught sight of my drum, which I hadn't picked up in quite a while. I decided to play my drum and do a bit of toning along with it. Then I got this great idea to record it to post in my group. My voice is quite healing you see, and with the drumming it can be a powerful way to release stuck energy.
So off I went and did my thing, recording the whole thing. Well guess what happened? It recorded no problem, but when I went to upload it to my computer, it wouldn't. Then seriously like magic the whole thing disappeared! Clearly I needed that for ME as well. So once again I laughed and just let that shit go.
There really is no moral to this story except that sometimes some things are just meant for you and not anyone else. And that is perfect!!
