As women, we say we love money, but we don’t act like it.
We refuse to receive any support in our life or business. In order to have more money, we must be able to receive more support, because money is support.
A lot of us fempreneurs carry a belief that in order to make more money we have to hustle, drive, push and do to grow our businesses. This energy can be counterintuitive to receiving abundance and money.
A lot of women genuinely believe we HAVE to handle everything – in our lives and businesses, and that if we don’t we will be see as less-than, or incapable or incompetent.
As we are learning to receive we must step up and ask for what we want, because us having money won’t stop another from having what they need. There is a spiritual fallacy that being poor is more spiritual. The truth is we can do more for the world with more resources.
If you don’t have money you will not have the resources you need in order to do the big work you’re called to do in the world. In this episode we explore taking your power back through the platform of businesses and money. We suggest it is disempowered to be selfless, to not focus on money, and to not allow yourself to truly fulfill your purpose in the world.
Part of receiving is being in your power. As women we are raised to believe that being powerful is about doing all things and not accepting support. Emma and Julie suggest instead that it is more powerful to allow.
We explored how to allow more money in our businesses. We often come from a judgmental place with money. I need $10,000 now and it has to come in this specific way! We try to really control what happens with money, rather than allow it to come to us the way it desires.
There is power in leaving the door open so money work can work its magic. If we try and control money, we keep ourselves from experiencing possibilities. We must release attachment to how money will come to us.
There is a spiritual practice to receiving money, being non-judgmental, and allowing money to bring its genius into our business. This is a practice of trusting in the Abundance of the Universe, and staying in the present with money.
