“When we begin to dream big dreams, to set intentions and goals for ourselves, when we begin to strive for prosperity, abundance, health, wealth and success, everything that is not in alignment with that rises up to be healed or transformed. We must heal so that we can soar.” – Michelle Barr, M.Ed.

Dream BiggerI have always been called into the healing arts, first as a mental health counselor, then a hospital chaplain and then into the field of Energy Medicine and Energy Healing. Now, I Coach others in Energy Management and Intuition Mastery and help Spiritual and creative people step into their gifts and take them out into the world. I am attracted to many healing modalities and use them personally as well as with my clients and students. When I first started prosperity and abundance work, I thought it was different, separate from the work I had done before. As I integrated it into my experience, I found that not to be true.

I was in church one Sunday a couple of years before I had started this business. I was sitting in the pew quietly, listening to the music playing, waiting for my turn to take communion. It was a Sunday where we were asked to leave a monetary offering on the rail that would go to a specific cause. I was in a very meditative state even as I stood and took communion and then made my way to the rail and knelt down. I opened my hand and gave my offering. As I opened to Creator, to Source, instead of talking, I got a message. That message was “Healing Your Way to Prosperity.” Aha!

I sat back down, taking that in, and it began to come together, the way my work would look in the world. All of the concepts of the Law of Attraction and all of the teachings and tools resonate for me, but what has resonated the most for me and my personal experience and what I have seen in others I have done work with is this – It All Begins With Energy!

YOUEnergyI came to find that Everything is Energy. You are an energetic being in energetic exchange with the Universe and everyone and everything in it. The key to everything – better relationships, better health, better wellbeing, more love, more money, work we love and a live we love – begins as you learn about Your Own Universal Energy (Y.O.U. Energy) and how to use it to heal yourself and create your extraordinary life. Learn to work with this, to do the energetic work first, and everything else will follow, more easily and more effortlessly.

Everything that shows up in your life is there for a reason. You can learn to interpret this, recognize it, heal and clear it, and create life YOUR way. Everything I have ever done fits into this principle. It is now one of the governing principles I have chosen to adopt as my reality, and it heavily influences what shows up for me.

I actually have 9 governing principles that I use to guide my life as well as my business.

And so it was from the day forward that I set out to explore what “Healing Your Way To Prosperity” might be all about.

What I found first was, “When we begin to dream big dreams, to set intentions and goals for ourselves, when we begin to strive for prosperity, abundance, health, wealth and success, everything that is not in alignment with that rises up to be healed or transformed. We must heal so that we can soar.”

It was this quote from Helen Keller that showed up next, who said, “Your potential is great. No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an unchartered land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit. Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. The world is sewn with good; but unless I turn my glad thoughts into practical living, I cannot reap a kernel of the good. One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.” — Helen Keller

When we feel discomfort, that is opportunity for growth. When we feel irritated, it is because we are not in alignment with who we are becoming. When we dream big dreams, and set for ourselves big goals and intentions, we are asking much of the Universe, and much will be expected of us in return. We have to become that person which can live those dreams, reach those goals, carry out those intentions.

This work requires practice. We must continually be in daily practice. It is like an athlete training their body; we are training our minds and bodies to respond more quickly and more consistently. These tools become habit when you have worked with them enough.

Wayne Dyer says, we must bring our habits in line with our dreams.

Practice Discipline, Embody the concepts, and Allow.

Gratitude is an important and integral part of this work. Be continually expressing gratitude. Remember all the good things you have had and that you have now. Then affirm: “Thank you. I love all I have. Send me more. And better.” This creates momentum.

The Abraham teachings, which also influenced me during this time, say that complaining about anything holds you in the place of refusing to receive the things you’ve been asking for.  Justifying about anything holds you in the place of refusing to let in the very things you’ve been asking for. Blaming someone holds you in the place of refusing to let in the things you’ve been asking for.

There was some work here for me. I had a bit of a bad habit with complaining and blaming. I don’t do it much anymore, but it’s a family dynamic that is hard to unstick, and when I am feeling irritated or upset, I can fall back into it. So then I’m irritated and upset, which means I’m not in alignment with who I am becoming, and then I start complaining and blaming, and then I am refusing to receive the things I’ve been asking for and that the Universe wants to give me.

That really turns things around, doesn’t it. Rather than being able to say, it’s not coming to me, it’s just not happening for me, I have to say that I am refusing to receive the things I want. I am asking, the Universe is yielding, and then I am not letting it in.

Now it is for me to heal what it is about me and going on with me that is refusing to receive the things I want and that the Universe is wanting to give me.

What old tapes are playing? What old programs are active? What old hurts am I holding on to in ways that still serve me? What old beliefs do I hold that keep me out of alignment?

When it feels like you are slogging along, stuck, have it but don’t have it, you are not in alignment, so all the work in the world won’t produce it. Pay attention to what is not in alignment, what is rising up to be healed.

You must let go of what no longer serves you to make room for the new. This may mean people, environments, bad habits, negative thoughts and toxic emotions.

When you can come to the realization that it is not your past that is causing your pain, it is your thoughts about the past, then you can heal this old stuff that is holding you back from all that you are.

There are numerous ways that you can work on this on different levels and on different issues and aspects. Ask Spirit to bring to you those that will best serve you, that will best heal you, and do the work.

When I first started the Prosperity and Abundance work, I was ready to go. Bring me more work, more money, more happiness, more of everything that is good! And then the stuff started to rise up to be healed, and I was mad. I have worked with this. I did this already. Didn’t I? Yet, I now see how continuing to work and to heal has enhanced the Prosperity and Abundance work for me. The more I clear, the better it gets.

We may come to this work and think it will come easily. We may lack the understanding at first of how all of this works. Some of us will become frustrated and angry and say that it doesn’t work. And at that point, in that place, it doesn’t. Because on the surface it sounds simple, doesn’t it? But some of us know better. Or we soon find out.

NamasteGoldIf this makes sense to you, if it speaks to you, and you are ready for the support, guidance, coaching, healing and mentoring that you know will move you forward this year and into 2015, I believe I can help you. I understand where you are, because I’ve been there, too. I want to make this so doable for you that you will not hesitate another minute to move forward and create the results you are looking for. I don’t want you to spend one more minute of your life still feeling stuck, frozen, paralyzed or lost.

Stop Living By Default, and Start Healing Your Way To Prosperity.

Blessings, Joy and Always H.O.P.E.

Wishing You Absolute Joy In Your Journey,
