Sometimes when I feed my son he is so frantic to get the milk that he mistakenly pushes away exactly what he most wants and needs. Whilst squirming about and clutching for it, waving his hands and trying to speed things up, it becomes harder to actually get the milk to his mouth and he slows everything down! This ends up with him getting more frustrated, until I pin his little arm down or hold his hand out of the way (I’m always impressed how strong a 10 week old baby can be!)
Interestingly, this is something I have noticed with myself or with clients sometimes, when a result or outcome is so badly desired that it becomes almost impossible to receive it, and the more we want it and struggle to get it, the slower and more arduous the whole process becomes. On my journey of ups and downs, mastering the art of manifesting and creating the life of my dreams I have had to continually surrender and ‘let go’ to read more about my journey here http://www.katharinedever.com/mentoring/.
So today’s article is about how to receive your desires faster, let go of attachments and basically get out of your own way!
It sounds basic, and it is, but so often we forget to just take a breath and step back and see the situation for what it is. We lose perspective when we get attached or start chasing something, or decide on the way things ‘should’ be. We forget to trust life, trust the process and believe in the good that is naturally ours and will find us once we are available for it! Yes – it’s not so much as needing to ‘get’ your good, as it is about being open, ready and willing to receive it, so place your energy on shifting to that space rather than the ‘grabbing’ space of lack, fear and want.
Get yourself into your knowing. Listen to your intuition, ask for what you want and then ALLOW, by leaning back and hearing the messages you receive, looking out for signs and then taking immediate action upon your guidance. Cultivate a knowing inside you of safety and enoughness:
“We each have the choice in any setting to step back and let go of the mind-set of scarcity. Once we let go of scarcity, we discover the surprising truth of sufficiency. By sufficiency, I don’t mean a quantity of anything. Sufficiency isn’t two steps up from poverty or one step short of abundance. It isn’t a measure of barely enough or more than enough. Sufficiency isn’t an amount at all. It is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, and that we are enough.” Lynne Twist, the Soul of Money
You’ve heard it before and no doubt will be reminded again, but I’m harping on about gratitude anyways, because it’s fundamental to receiving your good. As the old saying goes- what you appreciate, appreciates – so make a note today of all the many and myriad blessings in your life and extend your gratitude to another and make their day!
With All My Love & Blessings,

With the hubbub of 2012 getting louder and everyone looking ahead, planning and thinking about what the next year has in store, its the perfect time to tune in and receive your wisdom from the place inside that is ‘access all areas’ and can connect the Grand Design, or ‘Divine Plan’ for your life.
For me, things tend to get messy in my life when I try and take over and ‘Edge God Out’ because I think I have to do it all alone. I think its little ole me that needs to write the article, plan my day, deliver the speech, and I forget to call on something wiser, higher, and greater than myself to help me. I find it becomes infinitely easier when I surrender, let go and allow Spirit/God/Life to lead the way….
When I actively invite this Power into my life, that is when the magic happens- I need to take the time to seek this guidance and ask for help before I really get the magic/solution/support I needed- and very often it looks nothing like I thought or could have ‘made happen’ with just my mind’s agenda.
Today I am sharing three tips to get out of your own way and allow that magic into all aspects of your business and life, whether its speaking at a big conference or figuring out why your baby is crying.
3 Ways to quickly re-set your dial and tune in to your higher knowledge (As always use whatever word works for you to describe Higher Power- God/Source/Life/Spirit…I kinda mix them up…)
Never underestimate the power of a ritual to get you back on track and hear your inner voice. Far be it from me to prescribe ‘how you should’ create a ritual instead get creative like a child again and create a ritual that suits you, and is appropriate to the situation, space, and time. Some ideas to try might be a particular location, clothing, candles, insence, element, exercise, breathing technique song incantation or prayer to help set the scene and set up some sacred space for you to get clear and hear your inner knowing:
Example – Before I go on stage to a big audience I completely release my planned talk to Life. I ask the Light to come through me, and to give people what they need. I say my affirmation “I am no one’s opinion of me, I am not even my own opinion of me, God please allow me to serve and may your will be done”
If you aren’t clear then what you want can’t really show up in the juicy way its meant to. Ask for what you desire and ask for help especially. Invite God/Spirit/Your Higher Self/Life into your everyday life & business with this simple and memorable passage from ‘A Course In Miracles’, to move you from manifestation from your ego, to actualisation of your Soul’s Purpose:
‘Where would you have me go?’
‘What would you have me do?’
‘What would you have me say? and to whom?’
Never underestimate the power of your intention to completely transform anything in your life. Working intentionally carries amazing results and can be the difference between a great time and a rocky one. I especially use the power of Intention for tuning in when I can not set up quiet time or space and am in potentially stressful situations:
Example: I always get great flights and have seamless experiences at airports, because I set my intention before the trip, and I do the same with car journeys, and I guess like lots of you with parking spaces too!
Start with the little things and practice tuning in every day and before you know it you’ll be tuning in to higher input on everything from how much money you want to make next year to what kind of services you could offer!
