Today, I’m starting an experiment. It’s from my own point of view, of course, but it’s also something that affects many, many authors. I know that it’ll be challenging, and sometimes, it might even be ugly. It’s also necessary.
I’m going to take a good, deep look at money.
And the blocks we have about it. The beliefs we have about it. The limits we set ourselves about it. All those things going on in the dark, deep zone of subconscious beliefs, family rules and hidden no-nos.
And even better? I’m going to document the work I’m doing on my own blocks right here. So you can see what’s going on, and how to deal with that. I’ll model that work for you, so you can follow a real-life example.
Well, I’ve been thinking about the direction of this blog and how it can be useful for authors. And even though I love you, my readers, I believe it hasn’t been as useful as it could be. That was a sobering thought.
And the next impulse came from looking at all KDP statements from the last three years. I started self-publishing in 2013 (under a pen name). So I pulled all the data and looked at how many books I sold and how much money I made in royalties.
In other words, I finally took a good look at my business as author.
That was very sobering.
And I believe it’s not my writing. I believe my books are fun to read.
But I also believe that expectations, blocks and inner limits affect results massively. Which means it’s time to start really working on those. And while I’ll look at other things later this year, I want to start with the obvious: Money Blocks.
I’m inviting you to come along on this journey into the underbelly of the mind, into the desert of limitations and the maze of rules. There will be surprises, and sometimes, great ahas. And much to let go.
In order to prepare for that work, I’m doing some tapping today. Because there is always resistance to change. Laying the ground work for easing into change is important at the beginning.
So here we go:
Even though it makes me sad that I’ve been sabotaging myself in the realm of money, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I’m now allowing myself to change and shift everything I believe and have learned about money.
Even though looking at my numbers makes me want to weep, I’m totally okay the way I am, and I’m now ready to take action on shifting my money mindset.
Even though it feels like hard work to shift beliefs, expectations and rules of a lifetime, I’m really okay the way I am, and I’m now choosing to make it an exciting adventure with amazing shifts in my money mindset.
Have you discovered any money blocks of your own?
How did that make you feel?
What happened while you were tapping?
And finally – what are you writing right now?
Would love to hear from you!
