How to Ease Into Your Good
Dear Nurtured Entrepreneur,
You may read another newsletter or blog that has already clued you in to the latest tip on aligning with your good as offered through the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. For my work-with-passion readers engaged in creative entrepreneurships, I want to be sure you know about it because it’s too good to miss.
Along the road to the power of positive thinking, affirming what we want, and setting intentions for our future, sometimes we hit a roadblock. That’s because in response to our statements the Unbeliever Within, the Dubious Doubter, the Voice of Ego can sometimes easily sway us with remarks like,
“You’ve got to be kidding.”
“You can’t do that.”
“Not in this lifetime.”
“Don’t bite off more than you can chew.”
“That’s for other entrepreneurs, not you.”
This new tool that Abraham-Hicks calls a “grid,” bypasses that resistance with a delightful ease. I’ve been working with it for a number of weeks and I can tell you that when I read my aligning statements I feel good, I feel confident, and I feel a happy anticipation of what’s coming my way. What’s not to love?!
The key is in the very specific words used to begin each statement. They feel so open that I experience no contraction when I use them. No voice inside offers resistance because there’s nothing to resist.
“I love the feeling of …”
Should you be tempted to alter this lead-in stem for your statements, don’t. Go with it and see how it works for you, how it feels to your whole being.
- Pick a subject with which you want alignment (health, house, relationship, just right clients, a motorcycle).
- Start each statement with “I love the feeling of …”
- Write 10 to 20 statements about your subject.
- Read them aloud and notice if any need to be tweaked.
- Read often, revise as needed, stay playful.
I’m not sure why they call it a grid. I think of it as a flat grid or plane in time and space that I populate with my desires for the Universe to flow through. It can be as simple as a list on a piece of paper, or put them on index cards, or something else that suits your fancy, but do write them down so they don’t remain just thoughts in your head. There’s added power flowing from mind and heart, down the arm, and through the pen onto the paper!
What I chose to do was create a one page grid of squares that I filled in with my statements of alignment. It holds fifteen squares and looks something like this:
Just saying that opening line puts a smile on my face … “I love the feeling of” … and leaves me feeling open to possibilities, clear headed, open hearted, and sure footed.
I love the feeling of connecting with you, dear readers. Indeed I do.
Until next time …

Introvert Entrepreneur, Introvert Coach? Last weekend, I attended a 3-day event for spiritual entrepreneurs. Great energy and very grounded. Outstanding key note speaker (Colin Tipping, author of Radical Forgiveness – what’s not to love?), well planned break-out sessions with presenters who were generous with their information. There was an excellent session called ‘Successful Introvert Entrepreneur.’…

Spring Cleaning Make-Overs for Solopreneurs Have you been seized yet by the unstoppable urge to clean, clear out, rearrange, and make-over? I went into my guest room to dust and polish a neglected bed frame. This required standing the mattress and box spring up against the wall. That done, I found my eyes roaming around…

Kick It Up a Notch One of the most challenging dilemmas for experts is evaluating their own products and classes from the viewpoint of their audience. It’s hard to remember what it’s like to not know something when you’re an expert. I find this is no less true for work-with-passion solopreneurs than it is for…

Aligning with Your Own Inner Truth Once upon a time, I learned an impressive lesson about the power of alignment. It began innocently enough as a birthday wish. Picking up a book given to me as a gift by my brother, I read a poem (see bottom of post) that sounded like a prayer, a…

Helping Solopreneurs Shine Through a Bio Make-Over Yesterday I was thinking about solopreneurs of a seasonal kind: Santa Clauses. Looking at childhood photos of my siblings and me perched on the laps of unknown men disguised as St. Nick, made me wonder about these individuals featured in treasured family photographs, gazed at year after year,…

Using a Heart-Centered Approach to Alignment The power of alignment turns the whole world. Planets and stars. Gears and machinery. Time zones and zip codes. Athletes and artists. Dancers and decorators. Wind and sails. As co-creators with that power, we either step into the ease of a downstream flow toward our good, or we fight…

Tending Your Focus in the Garden of Entrepreneurship Gardening is such an apt analogy for life and no less applicable to the life of the small business owner and conscious entrepreneur, for we surely reap what we sow in our work-with-passion soil. And in the Garden of Entrepreneurship, we sometimes lose track of knowing that…

Dear Nurtured Entrepreneur, We’ve entered the time of year in the northern hemisphere (mid-September to mid-December) with the shortest days and longest nights. Traditionally a time of more inward-turning activities, I’ve been thinking about where you and I could turn our attention to deepen the nurturing of our entrepreneurial selves. Skipping over any yucky…

In the northern hemisphere, it’s the time of the Autumnal Equinox. As you shift into the quieter, more reflective, planning time of the year, it can be helpful to assess what’s not…
