An Angel Card Reading for You (165)

Here is an angel card to guide your day. I am using my favorite deck (besides my own, of course), Doreen Virtue’s “Magical Mermaids and Dolphins.” Whenever you may read this, the message is for you now.

Stay Optimistic – Your dreams are coming true. Don’t quit right before the miracle occurs.

And my reading for you – Well, guess what. I asked a question specifically for you right now. “What does she need to know to bring in extra money for the holidays?”

(BTW, if you are reading this at some other time of year, it still applies to whatever special occasions are on the horizon.)

My favorite part of this card is “Don’t quit right before the miracle occurs.” I mean, for one thing, it tells you that a miracle is on its way! Don’t you love that? It really helps you stay optimistic.

As for the question I asked on your behalf, whatever you have been dreaming of making happen, money-wise or job-wise or friend/family-wise, that is coming to fruition, and that will include the extra money or support you need for the upcoming holidays. Cool.

Happy Holidays!

2016: Does It Theme Hot in Here?

Vision Board January 2016Do you “do” New Year’s Resolutions, goal-setting, intention-creating, or any other kind of inspired planning?

I’m not that big on them, actually. And I have recently read that some people refuse to do them because it creates unnecessary pressure and disappointment. Maybe that’s you too.

But I DO like to come up with a theme or main idea for each New Year. For example, for 2014, I chose “enthusiasm”.

And WOW.

Whether I created it or predicted it (does it matter?), ENTHUSIASM showed up for me hugely in 2014! From feeling it myself, to having events occur that made me feel it, to meeting a very enthusiastic man who was just waiting to become my True Love, enthusiasm was everywhere I looked.

This was the first time my theme was really obviously successful for me. I think I chose “change” for 2013, because I was pretty dang sick of the s**t-storms that preceded it. And things did change considerably–I got a new job and rode a roller coaster emotionally and financially. So that was fun.

My theme for 2015 was “Help Others”. I honestly can’t say whether I did a lot or “enough” (what’s “enough”?) helping last year, but keeping the theme in mind every day helped me to remember to make helping others a priority.

This year, I once again asked my angels, during my usual shower prayer time (also known as “spray and pray”), what theme would be good for me in 2016. And this is what we came up with together:

Expansion.

What will this mean for me in 2016? Well, that remains to be seen, but I hope it will mean expansion of my work (to help more others!), expansion of my physical home (we hope to move to the ‘burbs from a condo in the city), expansion of my already-deep love for my sweetheart, and more. I hope it does NOT mean expansion of my waistline, as that already occurred in 2015, thankyouverymuch.

As with every year’s theme, I will keep the idea of “expansion” in mind as I go through each day. And I will notice when the theme shows up in real and concrete ways. I know that’s all I have to do. The angels have spoken.

If you want to do something like this, and choose a theme, try asking your angels to give you the right idea. Yes, you may certainly make a vision board (or vision card) as shown above, a list of potential words and phrases, and/or a fist to determine your theme. But I find that simple is usually best. So here is your script:

“Hello, angels/guides/helpers/God/Universe/sub-conscious. I want a theme for 2016. What do you got?”

And then shut up and listen.

Much love, peace, and HELP to you in the coming year and beyond! Love and kisses, Susan K.

Does it theme hot in here to you?

But back to themes that we can actually enjoy. This year, I asked my angels, during my usual shower prayer time (also known as “spray and pray”), what theme would be good for me this year. I was so pleased with 2014 in general and with my theme of enthusiasm, I was sure they could help me suss out my best possible theme for 2015.

And they delivered. As usual.

My theme for 2015 is… Ta-da!

Help Others.

That’s it. Simple, right?

And how does this “LOOK” for me for the coming year? How will it manifest? Frankly, I don’t know yet! But, just as I did last year, I will keep the idea of “help others” in mind as I go through each day. And I will notice when the theme shows up in real and concrete ways. I know that’s all I have to do. The angels have spoken.

The Attractor Factor

Just a quick rec for one of the books I am currently reading.

Dr. Joe Vitale’s The Attractor Factor is a real game-changer.  It is  a simple system of spiritual/energetic tools for manifestation.  Joe shares a wealth of spiritual information, too, most of which I teach also, but much of which is still new to people.

I’ve mentioned before that it is remarkably similar to my own 3-D system, so of course I have to recommend it!  And I am also inspired to write my 3-D into a book, so I have Joe to thank for that too.

Entrepreneurs: That Was Then, This Is Now

“Hard work never killed anybody, but why take the chance?”  —Edgar Bergen, ventriloquist, 1903-1978

As a business owner, I like to offer my fellow entrepreneurs helpful information when I can.  So if you’re not in that audience, it’s okay to skip this one!  Otherwise, read on!

I started my first business in 1999.  Like so many first-time entrepreneurs, I had lost my last job to a lay-off, so I started providing my job skills as a consultant.  It was my great fortune to start a facilities project management consultancy during a huge boom in the hi-tech industry in Austin.  The architects referred their clients to me willingly, because I did all the add-on stuff that their clients needed but the architects didn’t do.  In short, I had more work than I could handle and hired a project manager in short order.

Back then, I did not network–at least, not consciously.  Certainly, I went to association functions and talked to all kinds of people, kept up with all my vendors and contractors, etc.  But I didn’t do any real marketing, didn’t have a website (You could get away with that back then), it was all word of mouth, and lots of it!

Nowadays, things are completely different.  I became an expert networker, and I was so good at it, that about 80-90% of my business came from referrals.  I also developed the curriculum for a networking workshop, which I still teach on occasion.  And I now spend approximately half of my working week on marketing in some capacity.  This blog post, for example.

Fortunately for me, I really enjoy marketing.  I like writing, conceptualizing, planning, and creating.  I am not in the kind of business that would be helped by cold calls.  (Thank goodness.  I really don’t like cold calls.)  I do less networking, but that has more to do with geography at the moment than with a lack of desire or need.  I’ve put out some feelers in my new city, but haven’t gotten very involved yet.

The other thing that I do differently now is work on the energetic side of my business.  That means the spirit of my business, my own thoughts and energy, my spiritual world.  Back in 1999, I had only an inkling of the awakening that was to come.  Yes, I listened to my inner guidance–in fact, it was a “message from the Cosmos” that created my first business–but I didn’t study Law of Attraction, meditate regularly, or work on my thoughts, feelings, and spirit. 

Now I do.  And this is as important a part of my work as anything I do.  Not just because I am in a spiritual, transformational business, but also because it is so important to be aligned with the work you are doing.

My current Clarity Statement or Personal Statement arrived whole in a moment of meditation:  “I joyfully use my gifts in service to others, and I joyously receive payment in return.”  I start each day by repeating this as many times as feels necessary, some days only once, some days over and over!

What about you?  Have you changed your methods of marketing and getting new clients in the past few years?  If not, it’s time to look at what you’re doing and how.  The world is changing fast.  Consumers–your clients included–are awakening to a new world, a new way of thinking and feeling, a new alignment.  Are you tuned into them?

Think Chicken

When I was a child, I was the entertainer in the family.  My dad is a stand-up comic (It was tough to make him laugh.) and my mom is a wonderful audience.    My sister has other gifts, like being brilliant and academic, so this was one of my roles.

One thing I used to do was to imitate a chicken.  I don’t remember where I learned to do it, but I remember being about 8 or 9 years old and making my parents laugh their heads off with it.  Once, my dad asked, “How do you do that?”  And I shrugged and said, “You just think chicken.”

Now, as an actress (My entertainment abilities took me to the stage for years, and I recently returned in community theatre.), this is really how I create a character.  I think about that character and become her. 

And this is how you create everything in your life.  You may know that you create everything, whether consciously or un-, but that is another blog post.  Or seven.  You “think chicken” and become chicken. 

You’ll find similar explanations in Napoleon Hill’s classic self-help book, Think and Grow Rich, the old 80s theory of “dress for success”, and probably every self-improvement process you can think of. 

If you want to be, do, or have something (material things, experiences, relationships, changes), you have to think chicken.  Think that you ARE, ARE DOING, or ARE HAVING that something.

It all starts with thinking chicken.  Good cluck!  (Whew.  Sorry, that was terrible!)
