Money is not a four letter word

Meeting new people at an event, triggers one issue for me – how to answer the question ‘What do you do?’

 

I was massively fortunate at Archangel Academy 2016 to receive so much support from so many amazing entrepreneurs.

 

Some who talked it through with me, some who offered to help me figure it out, some who explained to other people what I do on my behalf, and some who were open to experiencing it for themselves.

 

I’ve wrestled with the word ‘healer’ for so long, I thought it was a fear of being associated with the stigma of that word, that was blocking me from being able to easily state what I do.

 

Recently though, I’ve found some peace around that, and still my ‘what I do’ statement felt misaligned.

 

48 hours after the event, I had a breakthrough.

 

It’s not my resistance to ‘healing’ that’s the issue. Somewhere along the way, I’ve begun to resist talking about money.

 

The irony?

 

That’s what I specialise in.

 

I help entrepreneurs to quickly heal their relationship with money so they can enjoy making lots of it.

 

And I’m really fecking good at it.

 

When I first started smashing people’s money blocks, I happily explained it that way and my life was really simple.

 

Somewhere along the way, I began to feel that wasn’t ‘enough’, that it was shallow, and that maybe it was making some of my friends uncomfortable – and I began to dress it up as other things.

 

I lost myself.

 

I started talking about how I do what I do, about the emotional triggers I clear, about what happens to your energy when we work, about how I help people be their authentic selves and get paid lots for it.

 

And I can do all of that as part of the money block work.

 

But what really excites me, my true gift, is figuring out the silent story that your subconscious tells you about money, and quickly editing it, so that you can enjoy wealth without limits.

 

Because when I found and erased my silent story, everything changed.

 

In March 2014, I was making $50 an hour as an energy therapist, and barely turning a profit, even though I was healing all sorts of mysterious conditions. Pregnant with my third baby, I decided to go on maternity leave and not return.

 

When baby Jackson was six weeks old, I read The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks, and he described the ‘upper limit’ concept – that we have a subconscious reason why we limit our earning potential.

 

Fascinated, I energy-tested for my story. I found this: As a kid, the two sides of my family were very different. One side very wealthy and unwelcoming, and the other side not-so-wealthy and big-hearted.

 

Completely unaware, I was carrying the belief that if I made a lot of money, I’d no longer belong with the people I love – and I didn’t want to belong with the other tribe.

 

So I stayed stuck, self-sabotaging and holding back so that my income always plateaued at a safe and ‘justifiable’ level.

 

Having found the story, I did some energy work to edit it. Within 48 hours, everything changed. I was in demand from clients all over the world, I kept raising my prices and still they kept booking sessions.

 

When I couldn’t keep up with demand I launched a group programme, and made $45,267 in two weeks. My husband quit his stressful teaching job and we’ve both been at home full time ever since, with him taking care of Jackson.

 

My business has continued to grow and thrive, and it’s now $5000 to work with me instead of $50, and my last launch was $72k.

 

But somehow, somewhere, I’d started telling myself a new story about money, that it was shallow and making people feel awkward.

 

I began to hold back my passion for money.

 

Until Archangel Academy 2016.

 

Being in a room full of people playing their own game at the highest level, and supporting each other to stand in their fullest potential – I needed that so much more than I knew.

 

This morning when I was thinking about the new connections I made with amazing people who were really interested in what I do, I realised that they all wanted to talk about money, and where they might be blocking it.

 

And these conversations lit me up, and allowed me to share my superpower, and made me remember how much fun my work was when I was totally upfront about my real passion.

 

From the outside it might have looked like I was helping them, but really they were helping me. It makes me smile that it was the giving and not the asking, that showed me the way back to myself.

 

It also makes me smile that after an ‘AA meeting’ I’m once again ready to stand up and say: I’m Michelle Lowbridge, and I help entrepreneurs edit their money story, so they can make a shit-tonne of cash while they change the world.

I said to my husband last week, ‘I think I’m going to come home different, I thought I’d better warn you.’

 

And I returned to England a truer version of me, with a real sense of peace around who I am, and ready to enjoy my superpower in 2016.

 

And that’s going to mean I have to talk about money.

 

Here’s the truth – money is a tool which you can use to make your dreams come true.

 

It doesn’t matter if that dream is a family holiday in Thailand, a bigger home, philanthropy, investing in yourself or your future, adventures, experiences, or anything else you can think of.

 

Money is just a tool.

 

It’s a physical representation of energy, that you can trade for the things and experiences you desire.

 

It’s not dirty, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.

 

It’s more than ok to desire whatever you desire – and it’s natural to want more – that’s how we evolve!

 

We’re humans. Our very nature is to keep evolving, to keep desiring new experiences.

 

Maybe you want less stuff, and more peace or time to be creative.

 

Great. If you were paid more money for working less hours, wouldn’t that make peace and creativity even easier?

 

It’s only when we think we can’t have more, or we think we shouldn’t want more, or we worry what other people think, that this aspect of our human nature becomes a problem.

 

We’re here to enjoy everything this planet has to offer, and we all have unique tastes and wishes, and that’s perfect.

 

Whatever you desire and wish for, I salute you.

 

Money is one of many tools that can enhance your life, and helping more of it flow to you easily is my superpower.

 

So if like me, you’ve been holding back from talking about your unique gift, or you feel you have to apologise for earning more or wanting more, or you constantly feel the need to justify the good things in your life, stick around –

 

2016 is for you.

 

More soon….

 

Love from

My $72,000 Secret

Well this is embarrassing.

But I have a confession.

And an invitation to a celebration.

Remember when I launched Prosperity Prescription 2.0 in the summer?

I talked about it a LOT.

For two weeks, non-stop.

And then since then, unless you’re in the programme, you probably haven’t heard anything about it.

There’s a reason for that.

The launch was so successful that I was embarrassed to talk about it.

Yep, the queen of smashing upper limits, smacked head first into her own and has been subconsciously crippled by it ever since.

It was all going pretty well.

I was working hard, putting in long hours and pushing the launch boulder up the mountain.

The sales were coming in fairly steadily but slow enough to keep me pushing.

I was determined (my ego was determined) to ‘beat’ last year’s total of $45,267.

I was coming up against all sorts of inner ‘stuff’ during the launch and clearing it and moving forward, and clearing it again.

I did a lot of ‘growing’. It was uncomfortable but that in itself was kind of comforting.

Because I was trying hard.

A mantra from my childhood – “Well done, you tried really hard then, whatever happens, no-one can say you didn’t try hard.”

So if I was trying hard, then the outcome was fine whatever happened –

Try hard and fail, well at least I tried hard.

Try hard and succeed, well then I deserved it.

The night before the early-bird price ended, I was getting near the $40k mark.

That felt good. I was going to be close enough to last year not to feel like a failure.

My husband wasn’t going to be looking for another teaching job.

So I relaxed.

I celebrated with my family.

And the sales started flooding in.

Over the next 48 hours the total rose to $72,000.

On one hand I was ecstatic, thrilled, joyful.

And on the other hand I didn’t know how to handle it.

I hadn’t worked hard for that final $32,000.

Therefore did I really deserve it?

I had smacked into the upper limit of what I felt I was worth and deserving of.

And so I kept quiet about it.

I mentioned it once, hidden in a blog post where I also outed myself for not saving any money and spending ‘too much’ – to play down my achievements and make it ‘ok’ that I’d made this money.

I didn’t realise how much the shame of it was affecting me until yesterday.

I was wondering why people weren’t still joining Prosperity Prescription, so I started muscle-testing for some answers.

I found two things.

One – that people didn’t know it was still open because I have hardly mentioned it since.

Two – that I hadn’t been truly grateful for the financial gifts I’d received. Essentially I’d told the Universe ‘no more’ by failing to make a public declaration of thanks.

Now I’m not saying that everyone has to make a public declaration of thanks for the great things they receive (although the world be awesome if they did.)

But in my role as an expert in changing your energy so that you can make more money whilst really enjoying yourself, it’s really important for me to talk about these things.

I have a responsibility to my ‘online family’ and my clients, and anyone who is inspired to change their relationship to money, to be totally open about these things – I have to practise what I preach.

But for the last few months my subconscious has been playing a subliminal recording that I just didn’t pick up on. It was whispering…

You didn’t earn this. You don’t deserve it. You better not fricking tell anyone or people will HATE you, and your friends will desert you. You didn’t work hard enough for it and so you better not enjoy it. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Up on the surface things are ok, I’ve had tricky days and great days and everything in between.

But always a sense that something wasn’t quite right.

And truly, on some level, knowing that it was tied to that $72,000 and trying really hard to ignore it, because what the hell sort of idiot is going to admit making that sort of money for not a huge amount of effort?

Well, this idiot is.

Because the truth is this – feeling shitty about not deserving it meant that I didn’t speak sincerely about it. And being insincere about things always makes me feel shitty. And feeling shitty meant that I couldn’t be sincere.

See the cycle? A washing machine stuck on a spin cycle of shame.

After doing some work around this over the last couple of days, I now know this:

I’m more attached to my own values of sincerity, honesty, and integrity than I am to anything else.

So here it is.

A public declaration that I made a lot of money.

A public apology to the people that joined the programme that we didn’t celebrate the launch. An apology to those that love me, that I didn’t feel deserving enough of the money – or your love – to celebrate with you.

And a public invitation to you to do two things –

One, is to celebrate with me, because I would really appreciate it.

Two, is to think about this –

If you’re feeling a bit ‘off’ or out of alignment, ask yourself –

What is the last thing that you received that was fantastic?

On some level, did you feel you didn’t deserve it?

And if so, why?

And when you’ve taken a few minutes to figure that out, send me a message or a comment or an email, and tell me – so that I can celebrate with you, and tell you that you, 100%, deserved it.

I truly love to celebrate other people’s success and joy and gifts, and I’d be honoured to celebrate with you, and in doing so we invite the Universe to send us more of the same – and better.

To a 2016 of celebration, rising higher and acting in alignment…

Sending so much love

My First Six-Figure Year

Since my first big launch last summer I’ve made a six-figure income.

 

Now, let’s be clear:

 

That’s gross revenue, in dollars.

 

But regardless of the technicalities, I made a shite-load of money.

 

Way more than ever before.

 

So isn’t it interesting –

 

And kind of embarrassing –

 

And perhaps a little bit terrifying –

 

That I also have:

 

Less savings than this time last year.

 

A credit card debt for the first time in ten years.

 

No pension.

 

No investments.

 

And no clue as to the net, post-tax revenue of the business in British pounds.

 

I spent the last year enjoying my money-magnetising abilities.

 

I’ve had $5000 VIP clients.

 

I had a second, $25,000 launch in April.

 

I’ve been paid tidy sums for an hour’s work on someone else’s programme.

 

And of course, I’ve helped a lot of people make more money.

 

When you’ve never been well paid before, that’s your focus.

 

When I erased the blocks that were holding me back from accumulating wealth…

 

There was no holding me back.

 

Money flowed in.

 

I can make money flow in, no doubt about it.

 

And unlike in previous years, money coming in hasn’t been followed by unexpected bills.

 

Things haven’t broken down.

 

Things haven’t gone wrong.

 

Things have been fantastic.

 

I said earlier in the year:

 

“True wealth is all the money you want – and more – with the freedom to choose how to spend it.”

 

And spend it I have.

 

I like travel.

 

To me it spells freedom, adventure and experience.

 

So we had a last-minute family holiday to Lanzarote.

 

An epic three week trip-of-a-lifetime to California.

 

I’ve been to Key West in Florida and Tulum in Mexico.

 

Our big goal for this year was to move house.

 

Working from home is great.

 

When your office is next to the kitchen and the sitting room and you have three kids?

 

It can be a bit hard to get everything done that you want to do.

 

So in July we moved to a massive house with a big, quiet office space.

 

There’s no mistake, this year I’ve done what I set out to do.

 

Make money.

 

Love my work.

 

Enjoy freedom and fun with my family.

 

So what’s the problem?

 

I don’t think this is the full picture of wealth.

 

I thought it was.

 

And now I can see that there are edges to this picture that aren’t fully in view yet.

 

Edges like pensions, investments and returns.

 

Sounds fecking boring doesn’t it?

 

KEEP READING!

 

Because what interests me isn’t so much what pension to get.

 

(And whether a pension is even a good idea in the current financial climate blah blah.)

 

No.

 

The interesting question is this –

 

What is it that really makes you wealthy?

 

Because I truly believe that fun, freedom and giving are signs of a wealthy life.

 

But if all of my money just flows out again (even in directions I choose) am I really wealthy?

 

Maybe true wealth means having an income that keeps flowing even if you don’t switch on your laptop?

 

An income that flows until you die is probably going to involve investing in some way.

 

Switching off when it comes to the conversation about investing?

 

That’s a money block.

 

One that I think is prevalent in women.

 

I know I had it.

 

I’ve spent the last week working on it.

 

Because I just had another launch.

 

$72,000 in two weeks.

 

And at the same time as celebrating with my family.

 

I couldn’t fight off the feeling that I need to do things differently.

 

That if I get to this time last year and have no assets to show for my year in business?

 

I’m going to kick myself.

 

I realised that I was intimidated by accountancy.

 

Daunted by investing.

 

Confused by everything I didn’t know.

 

And it literally made me shut down, switch off, numb out.

 

I realised that I’d erased my money blocks around making money and being able to enjoy it.

 

Hence having a fricking brilliant year and lots of fun.

 

But what to actually DO with it once I’d got it?

 

(Other than enjoy it.)

 

Blocked.

 

Big style.

 

So I started asking myself a lot of questions.

 

And for me, this is always where the fun starts.

 

How do we balance feeling good in the present with planning for the future?

 

How much of my $72,000 launch success was due to spending a lot of cash in America this summer?

 

I’ll explain.

 

On that trip, I was determined we wouldn’t worry about money.

 

That we’d do whatever we wanted, experience whatever we wanted.

 

That we’d give away hundreds of dollars in tips and gifts to homeless people.

 

And we did.

 

It meant I spent a lot.

 

But how much was it energetically responsible for attracting back to me?

 

In terms of the Laws of the Universe, how much do I need to live in the present?

 

How much should I prepare for the future?

 

And when it comes to these money blocks around investing.

 

What are women afraid of?

 

And do you know the magic of asking these questions?

 

I can go straight to Infinite Intelligence for the answers.

 

So, here’s the thing.

 

The same energy I tune into to find out what your money blocks are –

 

I can tune in to the collective energy of any individual or group and ask anything.

 

I can test what were the factors that contributed to my success.

 

And I can find out what percentage each factor was responsible for.

 

I can test for women as a group.

 

Or female online entrepreneurs as a group.

 

So things are about to get really interesting around here.

 

And I want to know –

 

If you could ask Infinite Intelligence, the soul that connects us, anything about money and wealth –

 

What would you ask?

 

NOT a personal question like “What is my money block around x, y, z?”

 

But –

 

What are the things that block women from investing in property?

 

(I already found that out for someone months ago and I’ll post about it when I’ve dug the notes up!)

 

Or maybe –

 

What attracts more money to me, spending or saving?

 

I’m talking the fundamental things that affect all of us in relation to wealth.

 

What would you ask?

 

TELL ME!

 

Email me right now with your questions about money and wealth.

 

My mission for this year is to find answers.

 

To keep broadening my view of the Wealth Picture.

 

And to keep sharing what I learn.

 

The world is changing.

 

Like me, are you self-employed or running your own small business?

 

Or do you want to be?

 

Or are you employed?

 

We’re all in the same position (with few exceptions).

 

If we take six months off (and I mean really off) we don’t get paid.

 

In the online space there’s a lot of focus on ‘working from anywhere’.

 

But that still means working.

 

We might not have to show up to an office, but we’re also not totally free.

 

And I think that’s where the truth about Wealth and Freedom lies –

 

It’s not just about freedom to travel or work in our pyjamas all day.

 

It’s the freedom to stop working and see the money keep flowing in.

 

I don’t have all the answers.

 

But I do know this –

 

I’m determined to find them.

 

I’ll keep you posted.

 

Love always

 

Michelle

PS – I’m deadly serious – email me now and ask me your burning questions about wealth, money and money blocks!

Kinesiology… Kinesio-What Now?! My Journey Into The World of Energy

I remember when I was first told about kinesiology.

 

My first daughter was eight months old and she was a really fussy eater.

 

And as a new mum, I was petrified she would starve (or wake up in the night) so I only fed her what she liked.

 

Which was mostly yoghurt.

 

A friend told me to go and see a kinesiologist.

 

I nodded, smiled and completely ignored her.

 

By the time Ellie was 14 months old she would eat yoghurt and toast with marmite.

 

That was it.

 

No vegetables. Nothing green.

 

When my friend suggested kinesiology again, I thought I might as well try it.

 

The practitioner – a Health Kinesiologist – did some muscle testing (more about that later) and said:

 

“She has four allergies.  Bakers yeast, brewers yeast, sugar and lactose.”

 

“Oh,” I said –

 

“That’s weird, because she only eats toast, marmite (made from brewer’s yeast), and sugary yoghurts.”

 

To which the practitioner replied calmly, as if she wasn’t about to change my life forever:

 

“Yes, the body usually craves that which it is allergic to…. Would you like me to correct these allergies now?”

 

“Um, say what now?”

 

“Shall I rebalance the energy so that these substances are no longer a problem?”

 

If my eyebrows could have risen any higher they’d have left my face.

 

“I thought you’d just tell me what the allergies are and we’d have to avoid them.”

 

In her mind she was clearly thinking “Bollocks to that.”

 

But very professionally, she said:

 

“Oh no, we’ll get this sorted right away.”

 

And she did.

 

We left that day and for six weeks Ellie wouldn’t eat toast.

 

Or marmite.

 

Or yoghurt.

 

She began eating all sorts of other things.

 

Most amazing of all, her favourite food became fresh, raw vegetables.

 

Even now, at 11 years old, she calls a salad ‘my normal dinner’.

 

Needless to say, I was overjoyed.

 

But that wasn’t the only magic that happened in that session.

 

Along with the allergy corrections, the practitioner also found and corrected some energy blocks.

 

These were emotional things like fears and things that troubled her little mind.

 

She even stopped her night-terrors.

 

Health Kinesiology gives you phrases to think, which create stress in the body.

 

By releasing the stress whilst it’s being triggered, you completely release the block.

 

Which means you’re no longer triggered.

 

And you don’t get stressed or overwhelmed by the things that were previously stressing or overwhelming you.

 

The phrases I was given to think on Ellie’s behalf were so perfect in describing her little personality.

 

I was fascinated.

 

I booked myself in for the following week.

 

The work was so accurate, it so pointedly zoomed in on my root fears and resolved the things that I struggled with, that it blew my mind.

 

For example, she honed in on my extreme problems with trust, a hangover from a previous relationship.

 

Since then, I’ve found and married the hubster.

 

And I know for sure that I wouldn’t have lasted the long-distance-beginning of our relationship if I hadn’t been able to trust him at all.

 

I kept going back for more sessions.

 

The changes I – and my family – experienced were so profound

 

I finally decided: “I have to learn how to do this.”

 

In 2009 I started studying in earnest.

 

The training for Health Kinesiology is intense.

 

Hundreds of hours studying, reading and practicing with volunteers.

 

It has to be.

 

It’s a huge responsibility to work with someone’s energy.

 

I am making changes in your energy system.

 

Your energy system is the blueprint for your body, mind and emotions.

 

It’s like your motherboard.

 

Would you take your laptop to McDonalds to be repaired?

 

Exactly.

 

I take this work very seriously.

 

After completing the five levels required to gain certification, in February of 2011 I began working professionally.

 

I saw a large range of clients with a variety of issues in my practice, from sleep problems to emotional traumas.

 

Together we achieved fantastic results.

 

One of the Health Kinesiology laws is:

 

The Impossible Just Takes A Little Bit Longer. 

 

I loved the feeling of a client leaving the treatment room after 60 minutes and their entire life had been turned around for the better.

 

While I was establishing my practice, I aced my extra studies in nutrition, anatomy and physiology, counseling skills, practice-management and Touch for Health.

 

(I know, Braggy Braggerson, but I take this shiz seriously!)

 

With these extra certification, at the end of 2013 I reached Kinesiology Federation Registered Practitioner (KFRP) status with the Kinesiology Federation, UK.

 

This is the highest level awarded unless you become a teacher.

 

I am very aware that I have a great deal of responsibility to work accurately, ethically and reliably.

 

My clients count on me to facilitate shifts in their energy that completely change the way they experience life.

 

When you work with me, you are – literally – in safe hands.

 

I have practiced and practiced my skills on hundreds of clients over the years, and now it’s like the energy I’m working on becomes an extension of me.

 

I use a combination of intuition and a specialized muscle-testing system which gives your body an infinite number of options to communicate to me what it needs, but allows me to work very fast.

 

I’ve developed many techniques and methods of my own.

 

Coupled with my extra-curricular interest in the quantum field and the laws of the Universe, the energy work I do has become completely unique.

 

This means that I can achieve accelerated results, which you might not find in traditional kinesiology.

 

And enables me to work with big groups.

 

All over the world.

 

With energy corrections that activate when the members start thinking.

 

As one of my clients put it:

 

“You’re really playing at the very edge of what we know about the quantum field.”

 

I’d never really thought about it before.

 

But hearing it made this lady-geek very happy.

 

It’s true that no-one else does what I do, in the way that I do it.

 

So what is it that I do?

 

There are two key elements:

 

  1. Kinesiology – finding out what the blocks are and how to erase them (which is what I’m going to explain now)

 

  1. Energy Correcting – erasing the blocks (which I’ll talk about next time)

 

Let’s start with the basics…

 

Kinesiology means ‘the science of movement in the body.’

 

What I’m doing is monitoring a stress response – or movement – in one very sensitive muscle.

 

By monitoring how that muscle responds to various stressors and triggers I can quickly determine what your blocks are and how to release them.

 

The kinesiology part is all about determining the What and the How:

 

In my treatment room, in-person:

 

– I rest your elbow on the table with your arm at a 45 degree angle.

 

– I check that the arm is in the ‘test position’.

 

– If the body is in stress, when I apply light pressure to your wrist then your arm will physically move downward.

 

– If the body is not in stress then your arm will stay strong – the muscle is locked.

 

– After I run a system of checks and balances to ensure that your body is giving me accurate answers I begin to muscle test.

 

– This means that I ask a series of verbal questions.

 

– I direct these questions to your body.

 

– If your body wants to tell me ‘No’ then the muscle switches off and the arm goes down.

 

– If your body wants to tell me ‘Yes’ then the muscle stays locked on and it will not go down.

 

– Then I proceed by asking your body Yes or No questions. I have a very refined, efficient system by which I very quickly find out what your body wants to tell me.

 

Your body knows exactly where the problems are.

 

Your body remembers the tiny incidents and experiences from your life that put its energy out of alignment.

 

Your body recalls in detail the things you have forgotten that are the root causes of your current struggles.

 

Your body also knows exactly what it needs to solve the problem.

 

And your body will tell me how to erase the blocks by using a muscle to respond to my questions.

 

So how does this work when you’re not in the room with me?

 

Maybe you’re even on the other side of the world?

 

Here’s the magic…

 

In the quantum field (the space between us) everything is connected.

 

So, first, I connect to you using an energetic intention.

 

Imagine it like this – in the space between us there are a million dots.

 

When I create an energetic intention, I light up a pathway of dots.

 

If my intention is to connect with you, then I light up a pathway of dots between you and I.

 

When we are connected in this way, I substitute my muscle for your muscle.

 

This is called surrogate testing.

 

I generally use the quadriceps in my thigh because it gives me the most accurate response.

 

(And leg ache, after I’ve been working too long.)

 

When I’ve connected to you, I direct my questions to your body via this connection, and I apply pressure to my own muscle as if it were yours.

 

My muscle responds on your behalf and I work exactly as I would in a one-on-one in-person session – asking questions and monitoring the response.

 

This is how I can accurately pinpoint your blocks and triggers.

 

When I work with a group, I connect to the collective energy of the members and apply the same principle.

 

It’s an enormous amount of fun, solving the puzzles of people’s problems.

 

Geek Confession: In my head, I’m the energetic Sherlock Holmes.

 

Once I’ve identified what the blocks are and how to release them, we move onto the second part – Correcting the Energy – and I’ll share more about that next time.

 

I hope that this has been useful.

 

I know the word kinesiology is a bit of a ‘kinesi-what’.

 

And I know that I was really cynical about anything alternative until I saw the results for myself.

 

I’m just a regular person, going about my life.

 

And I have an intense interest in what goes on behind the scenes of our lives, in the energetic realm.

 

It doesn’t mean I talk to fairies, wear tie-dye or eat crystals.

 

But it does mean I have a real advantage in life because I can change the very stuff that we are made of.

 

I can edit it, erase it, shift it.

 

I can find the things that trigger you and make them not trigger you any more.

 

I can strengthen you to your weaknesses and heighten your abilities.

 

I can take an issue that cripples you and erase it so well that you can’t even recall it.

 

So funnily enough, I absolutely love my work.

 

But rest assured, I take it very seriously.

 

I might put kisses at the end of my messages, but that’s just because I’m an absolutely softy.

 

I like running my own business because if I want to confuse the hell out of my accountant with an auto-responder that greets you with “Hello lovely” – well, that’s up to me.

 

In my energy work, I know exactly what I’m doing.

 

If you’re in my family, you get taken care of.

 

And that’s what Prosperity Prescription is all about.

3 Myths That Stop You Making Money

This time last year I charged about $50 an hour for one-to-one client work.

I had a few clients.

It was not a great business model.

I quit.

I studied online business for months.

Then I changed my energy around money.

And in a crazy spin of events I made over $45,000 in two weeks.

These days I only work one-to-one in my $5000 VIP programme.

I know so agonisingly well how it feels to be in business limbo.

You just want to make money doing something you love.

But you can’t figure out what that is or how to make it happen.

So I thought I’d help erase the myths that are stopping you from making money.

You know, these ones…

I don’t have a perfect website.

I don’t have anything people will buy from me.

I don’t know how to promote myself.

Ready?

Here we go.

  1. I don’t have a (perfect) website. 

Guess what?

You don’t need a website.

You certainly don’t need a perfect website.

When I made that $45,000 in two weeks I just used Simplero and Leadpages.

Leadpages is a website that hosts sales pages, opt-in pages, and all sorts of groovy stuff.

The templates are all set up, you just edit the tex and add in your own content.

It’s quick, easy to use and you can get an account for about $40 per month.

With Simplero you can do everything – from create a membership site or host an online course, or sell your digital products.

Last year I suddenly found myself in demand for one-to-one energy work to smash money blocks – I spent five minutes in Simplero and I was ready to take payments.

For the big launch, a Leadpages sales page linked to a Simplero payment page (hooked up to paypal) and I was done.

I bypassed my website completely.

No website?

No excuse!

  1. I don’t have anything people would buy from me.

Quite frankly my dear, this is bollocks.

We ALL have a monetizable skill.  (Monetizable may not be a word.)

I guarantee you, there is a subject that you’re an expert in.

You have knowledge about something that is GOLD to someone else.

Do you keep any sort of notebooks, or write down goals, or ideas?

Have a look through them.

I recently did this and was amazed – the amount of times I’d written down ‘combine law of attraction knowledge with energy work’ over the last few years is astounding.

On some level I knew this was my zone of genius… I just took some time to realise it.

What’s that one idea that you have tucked away, that thing you always come back to?

What’s stopping you from putting it out there?

I’d guess it’s one of two things:

a.) You’re waiting for it to be perfect.

b.) You’re scared that if you put it out there in a small way someone will steal the idea.

Let’s break this down.

a.) Perfectionism keeps you small. 

It holds you back.

It’s your enemy.

You can spend months perfecting something and nobody buys it.

(Been there, done that, blog post to follow.)

Honestly, you can’t afford to be a perfectionist.

Just take action.

Staying still stinks.  Literally.

Have you been near stagnant water?

Humans are the same.

Stay still, you stagnate.

Just do something, as well as you can, as quickly as you can.

b.)  Fear of being copied will cripple you. 

There may well be someone that tries to rip you off or imitate you.

There might be people who take your ideas and use them for their own gain.

Often, on an energetic level, they are held back because the soul knows when you’re not playing fair.

Imitating might give them a boost, a push forward, but the Big U knows what’s going on – and it always sorts the wheat from the chaff in the end.

This might be something you have to deal with, or have your lawyers deal with.

But guess what?

It’s not a reason not to do something!

If you don’t put your ideas out there, someone else will anyway, because all ideas are held in the quantum field.

If you get a download or flash of inspiration, and you don’t take action, someone else will.

And – most importantly – there is an audience that only wants to hear what YOU have to say on the subject.

Tom, Dick or even Prince Harry could be saying the same thing, and YOUR audience wouldn’t listen. 

They are waiting for you.

So crack on with it.

 

  1. I don’t know how to promote myself.

Oh I know that feeling!

If I was slightly more street, I’d say something like ‘I feel you sister’ and double high-five you.

I think there are two sides you need to tackle this from.

One is the inner work – get in touch with what’s holding you back and smash the hell out of it.

Or gently release it, whichever appeals more.

Personally, I don’t mess around, I like to GSD.  (Get Shit Done).  (Please don’t my husband I just used that abbreviation, he will cringe himself out of existence.)

And the other is the outer work – getting some good advice and then taking some serious action.

You don’t know what you can do until you do it!

You have to polish both sides of the coin.

If you’re feeling paralysed because your self-worth is cripplingly low, get some help, so you can start to see how awesome you are.

There’s a lot of talk about ‘be yourself’ ‘ you’re the brand’ – but if you’re not feeling very chipper it can hard to even know exactly who that is.

A few years ago I was really struggling with a lot of things.

I had totally lost sight of myself.

Then my marriage ended.

I joined a netball team.

I made a conscious decision before I walked in the door for the first time, that I would be me.

But I didn’t really feel like I knew who I was.

This is how I did it:

I realised that of the people I spent time with, I was most happy and relaxed around my brother.

When we’re together, we get more and more alike, and it’s hilarious.  (Well, our parents think so, it’s probably not that funny.)

And my brother is a really likeable, funny, friendly, popular guy.

So I thought, if I’m like him, and he’s likeable, then maybe I can just go in there and be myself, and people will like me too.

(Writing that just made me cry.)

I silently vowed to myself that I would go in there and just be me.

The ‘me’ that my brother knows, the relaxed me who laughs at pretty much everything, including myself, and isn’t apologetic for what I think or feel.

I decided to forget about all the baggage I lugged around, forget about over-thinking everything and worrying and fearing and wondering how best to get people to like me, because I felt so desperately unlikeable.

I said to myself, and I can remember it vividly:

“I’ll go in there and be myself, and if they don’t like me then I’ll accept that, and if they do, it’s going to make life so much easier.”

Guess what?

Friends for life.

In fact, those netballers changed my life.

They accepted me.

(Crying again.)

They liked me.

I loved them.

They’re some of my closest friends, who’ve taught me so much about what friendship means, and I admire each and every one of them for so many reasons.

So if you’re wondering who you really are, think about this:

Who are you most happy around?

This isn’t necessarily who gives you a rush of adrenaline, who makes you tick, who keeps you on your toes – because that’s more likely to be someone you’re slightly tense around.

Who just gets it?

Who do you really relax around? 

The ‘you’ that shows up for that person is the real you.

And guess what?

You’re pretty fecking brilliant, inside and out.

That ‘you’ can show up anywhere, and be good enough for anything you want to do.

Then what?

How do you promote yourself?

Action.

Take action.

And by that I mean actually DO something.

We both know that planning and researching can easily turn into 8 hours down the Google-hole.

We try and convince ourselves that it’s ‘taking action’ but we both know that’s bollocks.

Here’s a simple rule for you:

Action is not passive.

Keep that in mind as you choose where to put your time.

So there we go.

No more excuses.

No website? 

No matter.

No skills? 

Nonsense.

No promotion abilities?  

Relax.  YOU are a gem just waiting to shine.

Lots and LOTS of love

My Money Story

I’ve got a confession to make.

In March last year I quit practising kinesiology.

After five years of studying, building my practice, and working with beloved clients, I packed away my kit to concentrate on my online business for the last few months of my pregnancy.

I had worked through my feelings of guilt around quitting something I’d worked so long to get to the top of, and I was genuinely excited to focus on my happiness teaching.

Fast-forward to July.

Baby Jackson was six weeks old and utterly perfect, being doted on by his dad and his two big sisters.

I, however, had started to feel restless.

I read about the concept of the upper limit…

That we all have a level of what we subconsciously believe we deserve to have and earn in life.

When we bump against those levels and try to push past them, we meet resistance.

We self-sabotage.  We attract circumstances that make things difficult.

We end up staying at the same level, energetically – and financially.  When I read that part, my spidey-sense kicked in on full power.

This explained why, in my two businesses – an online retail store and my kinesiology practice – when one got busy the other one slowed right down.

I had an invisible limit on my income, and no matter how hard I worked the total income would remain the same.

It explained why at the end of my honeymoon I manifested a jellyfish sting and then put my back out – because the resort was more luxurious than I was used to and so I couldn’t possibly just relax and enjoy it.

It explained why if I managed to squirrel away some extra savings, then the washing machine or car would break, because I couldn’t possibly have that much security.

And of course, if everything started going really well, if I dared to think about how well things were going, I’d wake up the next morning with my skin breaking out.  Lovely.

Skin issues aside, my invisible money limit had ensured that my income had stayed almost exactly the same for three years.

It seemed I needed to go on a massive money mindset mission to root through my mind and psyche for the secret explanation for my attitude to money.

Then I remembered.

I’m a kinesiologist!

I don’t need to wait, I can just ask my subconscious for the answers.

So I did.

I found my first limit in about two minutes; how awesome is that?

No exercises, no depressing moments, no tears, I just did my Energy Editor thing and muscle-tested for the answers.

In the energy work I do, all problems have a related block in the energy system.

My testing revealed my invisible money limit was to do with the two sides of my family.

One side is well-off, miserable and legendary for their tight-fistedness.  (My paternal grandmother once gave my brother a Walkman for Christmas.  It was worn, dusty and still had her Perry Como tape in it.)

The other side are hard-working, less well-off – and they are fantastic people… great fun, super-loving, really happy and heart-breakingly generous.

My experiences growing up with these two influences had resulted in a rather faulty belief – all rich people are miserable, and if you want to be really happy, don’t earn lots of money.

So, problem found, only a few months of mindset work to fix it.

Ugh.  That sounded like hard work.

Then I remembered.

I’m a kinesiologist!  I can fix this right now.

So I did.

A few energy corrections later and I’d shifted my first invisible money limit.

This process took me a few minutes to complete.

It would turn out to be the most important and life-changing thing I’d done since saying to my husband, Pete: “I’m VERY broody.” (Translation: Make me pregnant, NOW.)

Within 48 hours everything had changed.

Having driven my ‘well-loved’ Corsa (like a Geo Metro) for ten years, I went out the next day and bought a new car, which I also manifested a $8000 discount on.

I found a solution to a long-standing finance problem.

This problem did not have a solution.  Yet I found one!

This was exciting!  I wanted to share it.

The next day I popped into a Facebook group:

“I’ve got 15 baby-free minutes, and a new skill to practise.  Does anyone want their invisible money limit found and corrected?   I’m a kinesiologist and I’ll tune into your energy system and muscle test to find it.”

The crowd, as they say, went wild.

15 minutes ended up being two hours, with a pause to feed the baby and coming back for another few hours.

Now, when I first joined this group, as a way of getting to know people I’d offered to find their biggest money block for them, using my muscle-testing magic.  I got to know ladies in there and I got a big response.

But this time, because my hidden money story had changed, something else happened:

“I want to book a session with you Michelle.”

“I want a private session Michelle, how we can do that?”

“Can you and I work together one-on-one, Michelle?”

And so it went on.

I explained that I had a six week old baby, and also that I was no longer practising.

“Well if you decide to start practising please let me know.”

“And me.”

“Me too!”

I received private messages saying the same thing.

I spoke to Pete.  He’s a teacher, so he’s around for the summer, and he was quite happy to be daddy daycare if I wanted to bust out my kinesiology kit and do some work.

So I did.

I got great feedback and amazing things started happening for the ladies who had a session with me.

They shared their experiences.

Things like:

Since my session with Michelle… money is flowing in / I was contacted by my ideal client a few hours later / people are booking my VIP experience.

And I got busier and busier.

On the 20th July I started taking bookings.  By the 31st I’d received $5000 into my paypal account.

Zero to $5000 – in ELEVEN DAYS – from a business that I’d closed!

And guess what?  Even though one income stream went crazy, the other one didn’t slow down.

My online store was busier than ever too.

I ended up having an $11,600 month – by far the most money I’d ever made.

There were a few hiccups as I smacked into my limits – the dryer immediately died and I threw water all over my laptop.

A couple of energy corrections (and a very tech-talented hubby) later and everything was fine again and I kept moving upward with no more problems.

But that’s not the end of the story.

I thought I’d see what happened if I posted an offer of help in another – larger – forum.

Assuming there was no way the members would be interested, I sat back, ready to feel humiliated as my offer was inevitably swept to the bottom of the page.

Instead, I found myself calling “PETE!!  PETE I need your help!”

And we spent the next four hours in a whirl of energetic excitement.  I tested and set up the corrections, while he told me who was done and moved each set-up from my desk so I could do the next one.

555 comments on the thread later and there was no way I’d be able to do them all.

The next day I had to admit defeat.  But I had an idea.

“If anyone is interested then I can do a group correction where I smash the same energy block for everyone?”

And the crowd again went wild.

I was having a great time, people were feeling the energy shift, asking me how I did it, reporting back that good things were happening after my work, it was such good fun.

So I posted another one, and it got another great response.

That day I was having a chat with my brilliant friend Amy Latzen-Birks, the Strategy Ninja, and she uttered the immortal words:

“That’s a product.  Right there.  That’s a product.”

And The Prosperity Prescription was born.

Within 20 minutes she had me collecting email addresses from people who were interested in joining.

People signed up – they actually gave me their email address!

I kept hitting refresh on the Mail Chimp page and I couldn’t believe my eyes.

On Friday 8th August, my existing list had about 46 people on it.

By Saturday 9th August my new list had 300 new names and it was still growing.

That’s 650% growth in my list in one day.  

ONE DAY!

Amy had made one of my dreams come true by putting one of those fancy countdown timer things on my opt-in page!

Woohooo!!

And it was going to hit zero hour on Monday 11th August.

Gulp.

What a rush.  Emails went out on Saturday and Sunday.

On Sunday night my hubby built me a camera tripod out of a step ladder, a ruler and some electrical tape and I recorded the video that went on my sales page.

On Monday, the video went out, Charter Members were invited to enrol and Pete and I sat with our daughters, wondering what would happen.

I had said to them: “This might mean that Mummy gets paid to do something she absolutely loves doing!  So cross your fingers.”

And they did.

We waited.

Then…

‘Ping’

Email.

“Someone signed up! Someone signed up!”

We went crazy!

‘Ping’ again!

The girls cheered, I cried, Pete was stunned.

And so it went on.

We closed enrolment with 165 amazing Charter Members for The Prosperity Prescription.

I have never been so humbled, so grateful, and so mind-blowingly honoured.

I had created something and people wanted to join in.  I had formed a group that would take its members on a journey of transformation over the next year.

It was a dream come true – one of those dreams that’s just so big, and so magical, and so life-changing, you don’t even dare to dream it.  It’s just within you, waiting to be unleashed.

And because The Prosperity Prescription is all about helping you to achieve greatness, to help you raise your rates and make more money, I’ll tell you the numbers.

The Prosperity Prescription launch generated over $43,000 in two weeks.

Using a skill that, five weeks previously, I thought was redundant.

That’s what happened to me when I smashed my money limit and erased my money blocks around family ‘stuff’.

What do you think would happen if we smashed and erased yours too?

Here’s what members of The Prosperity Prescription were saying in their first week…

“Michelle you truly are a bright light in this world.  And I think I speak for everyone in the Prosperity Prescription when I say that your talent surpasses anything any of us might have ever anticipated receiving from you or this experience.”

Michelle you are super interactive… I feel heard, sensed, not TOLD what to do but included, invited, cared for and loved … you are over-delivering.

“I feel infinitely held and safe in this group to smash those upper limits and create some new lifetime patterns of releasing blocks and continuing to align to my heart, path and purpose.  Thank you!”

“I am loving being a part of this group!  I am breaking through barriers and already noticing a positive difference in only a few days.  I even had a prospect follow up with me the other day and I scheduled an appointment for today and she’s moving forward!  I’m so excited to see what the results will be after a year!”

I’m still pinching myself and wondering if I’ll wake up from the most incredible dream, I just can’t believe this is my life now.

And I can’t wait to see what happens over the next year, for me AND for the amazing Charter Members.

I’ll keep you posted!

Love from

Michelle
