The Fastest Way To Raise Your Vibration

Hi!

So thanks to everyone who joined my birthday giveaway, I had a great party and excited to speak to most of the winners this week.

Okay so this might all seem a bit ‘woo woo’ but I’m okay with that, as I know how truly important this is, we won’t go crazy into detail, but I think knowing the basics of this is a game-changer!

We talk a lot about how our ‘thoughts become things’ and that is the crux of most Wealth Consciousness, but the truth about manifestation is that it’s not what you think but by what you feel. Everything is vibration and you attract those things that you are in vibrational alignment with. Your vibration is your feeling. It is your feelings that attract your experiences. And everything has a vibration attached to it. i.e Things with the same vibration are attracted to each other, from your home to your friends and your car, so the higher your vibration the more money you naturally attract.

Everything we want is just really the emotional response we think we’re going to get from having it, if we can start to activate the emotion of already having it, we can start to attract it. Higher vibrations and feelings are the way your desires will manifest more easily. The more positive feelings you can experience about yourself and your desires, the easier and faster you’ll experience your desires manifesting into your world.

Newsletter 1

For instance if you can’t talk positively about money, it’s better not to talk about it all, I don’t mean be in denial. But don’t focus on the negative feelings of not having it.

There have been studies on this done and to further explain I want to share the David Hawkins Scale of consciousness. It details the vibrations of our feelings from high to low.

The highest four from the top are Enlightenment, Peace, Joy and Love (with vibrations of 1000, 600, 540, 500, respectively) and the bottom four are Grief, Apathy, Guilt and Shame (with vibrations of 75, 50, 30, 20 respectively). With shame being the lowest. And a whole host of other feelings in the middle.

So what does all this mean? Well, the quickest way to raise your vibration is obviously to experience more of the top and less of the bottom. Ok so we’re not all going to become enlightened overnight, but there is a shocking disparity in the numbers and it seems obvious where we’d all rather be. But as women (and I think most of you are) we struggle with guilt waaayyyy more than men, and this study has been a huge wake up call for me too, I can feel guilt before I even get out of bed in the morning!!

But the bottom one Shame…it’s a sneaky one and that’s what we’ll focus on, it has got to go! One of the emotions that are linked to it is humiliation, and how do we get humiliated? Well it all comes down to other people, and our fears around what they’ll think. It’s their judgment of us and our judgment of ourselves that drive it.

Judgment therefore is one of our biggest saboteurs.

If we can stop judging ourselves and others we take away the right for others to judge us. Yes I know it’s easier said than done, but here are your first steps…can you imagine how much better you’ll feel if you let go of this super low-vibe feeling!

  1. Be a bit gentler on yourself. (Acceptance and forgiveness are high vibe, like 350!)
  2. Acknowledgeevery time you make a judgment on yourself or others.
  3. Decide to be more curious, ‘Why am I/He/She thinking or doing this’, rather than, ‘I/He /She must be broken/ wrong or a failure for thinking or doing this and I am shamed for it’
  4. Be more grateful for what you have (plus it’s super high vibe!)
  5. Come at it from a place of love(crazy high vibe)

If all this seems a bit too simple, and your judge is still running the low-vibe show, I’m here to help, you can apply for a discovery call here, I’d love to help you shut him up and rise your vibe. http://missionbalance.thewellnesspro.com/complimentary-discovery-call-application/

Are you frustrated by lack of clarity? I might have the answer!

I’m still in Rome and loving it, my friend arrives tonight and I’m going to have two full days off to be a real tourist! 🙂

This week one thing that has repeatedly come up is frustration from lack of clarity. Lack of clarity will stop any well-meaning entrepreneur in their tracks, you literally can’t take another step forward, you’re stuck, because you don’t know what to do or how to do it. What’s my target market? What should I name my group? How should I set my prices? What exactly am I even offering? Ahhhh… it causes us to spin and bring a whole lot of drama into our business, often needlessly.

When these themes pop up I always ask myself what is it I don’t have clarity on myself? What do I need to learn or see? As my clients always reflect something in me. Luckily I am not asking the above questions but I did have some big decisions to make about my team, my new Group Program and new Podcast, and I had to ask what is my resistance about and what is stopping me getting clarity on these things?

The interesting thing is that I find a lack of clarity usually is just fear. Just fear she says! Yes, just fear. Yeah you know that little tiny problem we sometimes get!? Well the good news is once we figure out what’s on the other side and sort it out, the clarity usually comes pretty quickly!

Let me explain, ask yourself, what does the clarity allow me?

When I asked one client this this week the first answers were ‘Well, I’d grow my list, fill my programs and make more money’.

Doesn’t seem too bad, right?

But when I asked what else does that mean? She answered: ‘Well I guess it means more haters, more of those annoying emails from people on my programs complaining about tech issues, it would mean having to write more emails, I don’t like writing emails, I feel like I’m forcing myself, I’d have to sales funnels and I hate them as I don’t know if I’m doing them right, and I suppose it would take away my free time, I’m quite enjoying the time I have right now’.

Anything else? ‘Well I guess I’d have to be more visible‘ and what does that mean to you? ‘My family would see what I’m doing’.

Now we’re getting closer to the problem… And what would that mean? ‘Well they’ll judge me and they don’t understand, and I feel like they’re already getting distant… I might lose them‘.

Ahh now we have the problem, it had nothing to do with lack of clarity, or writing emails!

This girl was linking getting clarity and making money to losing her family, of course she was never going to allow herself to get the clarity, because she’s scared of losing those closest to her and who would want to lose their family? There’s not much point in having all that money if you’re alone right?

This is actually a much more common conversation than you might expect, we so often, have twisted rules and give certain things meanings we don’t even realize. But it’s soo much easier to see it in someone else!

Thankfully we identified it and changed it, before it drove her crazy or kept her spinning for years or worse still maybe she’d give up, angry and annoyed with herself….for only really loving her family. What a waste that would have been! There is always a solution to this stuff, and nothing makes me happier than helping my clients move through these issues, and clearing it out at a deep subconscious level and re-writing those old patterns and beliefs. None of this stuff, ever ‘makes sense’ and it’s hard to rationalize your way out of it, yes, awareness is the first step, but sometimes you have to work to break the story.

Although some people wouldn’t say lack of clarity or judgement worries are money blocks, to me they are, anything that stops you moving forward in your business and making the money you deserve is a money block and they can be cleared!

If any of this sounds familiar? I’m here to help! I’m currently taking on 1:1 clients, and looking for a few Rock stars who’re serious about this and ready to take their lives and business to the next level, perhaps you’re on the edge of something big, now is the time! Apply for a discovery call now.

Lots of love,

Are you falling into these common business pitfalls?

I’m now in Rome and I totally love this city, I have managed to catch up with a friend from when I lived in Bermuda and getting to spend the weekend with another one from there too, loving this travelling thing. But I have also been working and yesterday I spoke to 7 women that I’d never spoken to before, some had signed up for my Money Mindset Assessment and a few were Bonus calls I was doing for a friend’s Group program. I loved speaking to all these amazing women, and facilitated some amazing breakthroughs, complete with a few tears, a past life release and even me getting goosebumps, it was a powerful day!  

But I was struck by the similar stories they were all telling me and even using the exact same words.  As beautiful and unique as we all are, our issues and problems are so often very similar.  I was so fired up after my day I jumped on Periscope to address each of the common issues that had come up and some top tips on how to overcome them, I am so passionate about helping people reach their goals, it might have come across as a teeny bit of a rant, and yes I needed a glass of wine to calm down afterwards!!

I’d love for you to watch it and tell me if it resonates with you? If it does it might be time to book in for one of my FREE Money Mindset Assessments! Watch it here https://youtu.be/w8H4Ex-fvoY

Some of the topics covered included….

  • Will I know what to do with my clients once they sign up? Will I be able to deliver?
  • I feel like a fraud
  • What if they want their money back?
  • I’m scared they won’t get results, it’s a huge responsibility
  • I have a fear of being seen/visibility
  • I have a fear of charging
  • I am not fully being myself
  • I am not good enough
  • I feel overwhelmed
  • I’m procrastinating
  • I lack clarity
  • I lack confidence
  • Not being aligned with your goals (i.e. if they actually happened would you have a panic attack? if so they probably won’t happen!!!)

Ciao from Florence: Men, Money & Mozzarella!

As you might know I packed up home and put everything in storage with the grand plan to work and travel all over the world, until I decide exactly where I’m supposed to stay for a while next!  I’ve been in Florence for almost 2 weeks, attending 2 Business courses, soaking up the atmosphere, indulging in the most amazing food, wine and even been on a few dates, it wasn’t until my friend said: “You’re just like Elizabeth Gilbert having your own little Eat, Pray, Love experience” that it made more sense, I watched the movie and read the book about 10 years ago and it captured my imagination, but I certainly wasn’t trying to recreate it, although I’ve been planning to go back to Bali for ages, maybe i’ll end up in India at some point too! 🙂   Does all this sound like a crazy fantasy? Well it’s all possible for you too– if it’s what you desire? I know it’s not for everyone, and who knows it might not be long until I want a proper base again!

But it hasn’t all been riding round Florence on the back of cute Italian guy’s Vespas! 😉 I am still super serious about my business and supporting my clients as I go. 

I attended the last live event of my year-long Business of coaching mastermind, and was honored to be asked on stage again to share my story and answer questions. This would truly have beenmy worst nightmare not that long ago, as being on stage used to cause everything to shake, my voice, my hands and even my legs, but I’m so glad I’ve gotten over all that to be able to share and help others with my story.

I have to say, one of the things I love about the Italians is that they have zero guilt over anything, they are totally unapologetic about everything in life, what they eat, drink and even smoke, who they love and what they do, they are passionate about everything and it’s infectious! I realized I have to bring even more of that into my business, have more fun doing it and feel zero guilt about it! That was actually one of the themes that came up on my course, there were a number of people asking how they can run their business when they have commitments to work, family, friends and still keep a balance but not feel guilty about how they spend their time.  It is so important to follow what is true for you and to know that doing what you love and building a business is not selfish, it’s actually really important. It’s important to be a good role model for your children (if you have them) and and to others that can ONLY hear the message from YOU.  You really don’t know who’s lives you touch with your message, even in that room in Florence I had people come up to me and tell me they had done my money blocks course and loved itor were inspired by my work, it truly blew me away. It was funny, one lovely lady, meeting me for the first time said she’d had me up on a pedestal, but having met me that was no longer the case!!, (what?!) she was like “you’re just a normal person”, and that’s the message here, I’m not special, I have just worked my ass off and made this happen, however, one of the main differentiators between those on that stage and the ones that weren’t was MINDEST, we all have done some serious work on our mindsets, money stories, and wealth consciousness. 

Because I am so passionate about this and don’t want anyone else to be held back from the success they deserve in their business, I have decided to offer a few free 20 min Money Mindset Assessments, so you can check if it’s a factor in your business.  You might be ready to find your first paying clients or even breaking through to your next big income goal, ready for your first $5 or $10k month or planning a launch (it can seriously mess with your head!!)? Unfortunately money blocks never 100% disappearand they usually crop back up when something changes, so even if you’ve done some work on them before, if you’re not earning what you want you probably still have them. If you’d like to check book in now for a Money Mindset assessment. Click here. http://bit.ly/1ZhN7A6

NOTE: This is not a discovery call, if you’d like to apply for one of them you can do that here http://bit.ly/1jdJM3Z.

Are you people pleasing yourself broke?

Hi Everyone! I’m back in Scotland, visiting family and attending a 3 day boot camp before heading to Italy for 3 weeks! Yay!! Trying to earn the wine and pizza before I get there! 🙂 (Picture: bike ride at boot camp in the pouring rain!)

But today I want to talk about people pleasing or it’s slightly more extreme big brother, co-dependency, as it’s called in the coaching world and how it can literally be keeping you broke financially and mentally too.

We all know people pleasers, they’ll do anything for anyone else before themselves, because they don’t value themselves enough and are always trying to be liked and then often become passive aggressive and resentful about it!

Co-dependency relationships are a type of dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person’s addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement. Among the core characteristics of codependency, the most common theme is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and identity.  Hmm sound familiar to anyone??

Before I started in this coaching world I’d never heard of co-dependency and was like, ‘I can’t be co-dependent I’m not in a relationship’…haha, oh so naive! You can be co-dependent with friends, colleagues, family, significant others and yes EVEN clients!!!  And that’s where the problems start!

I know you know I love to share, and here are a few big admissions from me…when I first started coaching

  • I was so invested in my clients results, I was allowing their results to define me, of course I still really care but now I know it’s not my responsibility!
  • I would take on clients who I knew where not my ideal clients, and then regret it- Now I only work with people who I am excited to work with and that I know I can help 100%.
  • I would coach at a time that suited them -not me, now I coach on Mondays and Wednesdays, and it works perfectly.
  • I would go over on time almost every session as I was trying to to over deliver – this ultimately stops people fully valuing your time, now I am much more aware of it and stick to my time.
  • I let clients cancel with less than 24 hours notice, against my client agreement, and now treat my agreement with the respect it deserves, after all it’s there for a reason. (if you don’t have one get one!)
  • I’d spend up to an hour and a half on a discovery call with someone who has already told me they have no money! I am not judging this, but they are not ready for a high-end Success coach! So now I have developed an application process, so I can decide ahead of time whether to grant someone a discovery call! BAM!! Check me out with my boundaries!!! 🙂

I’m glad I’ve gone through this process, as it’s so good to learn and grow and now I know what to look out for with my clients, but all of the above, have wasted my time, stopped me working with more ideal clients, kept me small or in low vibe.  NO LONGER!!

So if any of this resonates with you, maybe it’s time to rethink your boundaries, what is the aim of your behaviour? What is it costing you?  Get really clear on what you are willing to accept and where you are going to draw the line, and make sure you value your time!

Lots of love,
Jo x

How a night at the Casino helped explain how I run my business!

Did you think having your own business would be a lot more fun? Going for long lunches and hanging out with friends at the beach? I certainly did! Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but the reality is that we can be so focused on our business that everything else goes out the window. And then we actually stop receiving in our business because we are so focused on the mechanics and process and not the flow. 

I have recently been getting the message that I haven’t been having enough fun, in my business or personal life! It keeps coming up over and over again. And I’m like, I know, I know …I’ll get round to it..but I just need to get this next thing done…like writing this email to you lovely peeps! 🙂

Why is it so hard to be ourselves?

I’m off to an entrepreneurs convention tomorrow, I know I’m obsessed with courses but I need to be continually learning so my knowledge is at the cutting edge both for my own business and also my clients.

But that’s not what I wanted to talk about today, so many of my clients and even myself for a long time have struggled with visibility, getting themselves out there and even just being themselves? Why? Well there are a number of reasons one of them not feeling ‘good enough’ just as ourselves, but when we are trying to be something we’re not, we allow the worst situation and something I call comparisonitis! When we compare ourselves it creates competition and opens us up to even more feelings of inadequacy, their branding or website is better, they’re prettier, skinnier, richer, smarter, happier, more successful than your are! Or at least that’s what you perceive to be true. After all we all know that that image we see online is the HIGHLY EDITED TOUCHED-UP version of the truth that they want you to see, so obviously if we compare ourselves to that we will always feel inadequate.

BY JUST BEING YOURSELF YOU ELIMINATE COMPETITION! 

It is so important to be authentic, tell it how it really is or people will see through that, it’s also waaayyyy easier as you can relax and not worry that someone will find out that you are not really who you say you are! I have had the luck to meet many amazing online entrepreneurs in person, to me it’s a bit like meeting a celebrity, as your only knowledge of them is what they portray online, my favourite ones have been exactly as I imagined but to be really honest I’ve been quite surprised a number of times.

Hell on earth would be….meeting the person you could have become!!

This is the first day of Spring or Fall depending where you are in the world, and there are only 4 months left in 2015 and it got me thinking about my goals and what I was going to achieve for the rest of the year. Are you where you thought you’d be by now? Some of my goals I’ve surpassed way beyond my own expectations, some amazing things have happened that weren’t even on my list and others haven’t quite come together, but that’s ok, I still have 4 months to go!!

I was at lunch with a lovely Scottish girl today and this quote that I heard from Tony Robbins came up, when I originally heard it at Business Mastery, it brought tears to my eyes, he said, ‘Hell on earth would be meeting the person you could have become!’Wow, powerful stuff! 

It reminded me of a story my Mum told me, (we have a running joke and I usually finish her stories for her, as I’ve heard them a few times) it went something like this….she came home from school one day and said to my Grandmother, I got a B, imagine how well I could have done if I’d tried? The response: ‘Don’t let your father hear you say that or he’ll kill you’. My Mum has always said to me as long as you do your best, that’s good enough but it’s funny how patterns repeat.

I remember saying to myself, when I got my 2:1 Honours degree in Accounting and Finance, only a few points away from First class degree, imagine how well I could have done if I’d tried?!  I never put my all into it, in hindsight probably because it wasn’t something I was passionate about, and I was always trying to figure out the minimum amount of work I could do to still get a good grade! (and yes my parents read my newsletters!) 🙂  

But the scary thing is that I’ve occasionally found myself wondering the same thing in my business too. Yes, I’ve put in a huge amount of effort, hours and love into it, and yes I’m passionate about helping people but how good could it be if I’d tried? There have been the times when I’ve had a huge resistance to doing something important, procrastinated, self-sabotaged, and held myself back out of fear. Not written the post, not told people what I do, delayed replying to that email that I know could actually be a huge thing for my business, not asked for the feedback or help I needed, not admitted that I didn’t know what to do next, or that I felt stuck and scared. All of this just wasted precious time, and cost me way more than whatever *perceived pain* I was trying to protect myself from unconsciously

I have decided I NEVER want to be haunted by the thought that I’ve wasted another minute, not stepped up to be the woman I know I can be, not helped those that needed me or inspired the people that needed to hear my message. enough is enough, I chose to not have any regrets or be held back by fear anymore and I want you to know that this is possible for you too. It’s literally a decision to never be available for anything less, to never endure hell on earth, to learn what you have to learn and take the opportunities presented and to NEVER THINK : I wonder how well I could have done if I’d tried? 

Remember I’m always here if you need help, enjoy the rest of the week and please try!

Lots of love,

The 6 essential elements for consistent clients!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend?  I’m back in Sydney and feeling amazingly non-jetlagged, although I did wake up at 5am, but I’m going to make the most of it to get things done! 🙂  This is sunny Coogee yesterday, and it’s still winter!

Yesterday I asked what people in my Facebook group most wanted to know and I hosted a Business & Mindset Q&A on Periscope to answer them. You can watch the episode for all the answers but I wanted to summarize a few key take-aways.

First QuestionIs it important to make yourself available for after hours consultations (as an intuitive coach) or will clients fit your schedule?

Answer: The short answer is no! But if you’re starting out and working full-time it might have to be done, in that case pick one evening or Saturday morning and block them out, or pick a day of the week, I coach Mondays and Wednesdays, but I filled Monday first then moved on to Wednesday.  In this case boundaries are super important and you have to decide what you’re available for- or not!  I have another client who knows she wants a maximum of 3 clients a day so has picked 3 mornings to be available, it really depends on your style, personally I love my coaching days as I can really get into a flow with it and there always seems to be a theme of the day that comes up over and over. 

Second Question: Out of all the course you’ve done which one has most helped you get clients?  I have done so many courses it’s hard to answer, maybe you can tell me? But I decided the question was really how do you get consistent clients? And this applies no matter what kind of business you have from coaching to designing websites to selling jewelry.

Answer:
1) Consistent marketing brings consistent clients.  Seems simple right? But that means getting yourself out there, telling people what you do, and being consistent, I have afew clients that were too scared to even tell people what they did, getting over this block is key to your success.

2) Add value, add value, add value! Again seems simple enough, but there is a law of reciprocity, the more you give, the more you get and usually ten times over! Obviously there is a tipping point and you have to charge for your services at some point but give first. Some of my clients struggled to charge for their services or were undercharging so giving way too much, the key here is knowing when to stop, and valuing yourself enough to do so! 

3) Targeted List building. My mentor always says, ‘Your money is in your list’ and it’s so true, approximately 3% of your list will buy from you, so that means 97% of you gorgeous peeps won’t ever work with me! So if you want to sell more you have to grow it and add value and then it will come back. This can be done via FB Ads, your website Opt-in, posting your Opt-in in groups, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn etc….

4) Once you have your lovely list. Emailing consistently is key. Ideally one newsletter and 2 solomailers a week. (Thanks if you’re still reading this- you rock!! :))  I had to build up to this, but find the balance that works for you and your audience.

5) Joint ventures are an option, depending on your audience and whether you can find ones that work for you.

6) Host Preview calls and webinars Add value and explain what you do. Have a clear intention for your offer on the call. Occasionally a call won’t have an offer and it’s purely to add value.
For a more detailed discussion check out the replay here https://youtu.be/Y0LhMcFLd9Y and you can subscribe to my Youtube channel while you’re there!

Any questions just ask, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Lots of love,

Manifest money and exactly what you want!

I’m sitting in the lobby of my hotel, ready to fly back to Sydney in a few hours, it’s been an amazing month here in California and I’m planning my return already! So back to manifesting money…..I know, I know it’s not about the money, but it certainly helps, and like I shared in my last email it allows me to help even more people! So I’m guessing you’d like to be able to do that too!?  But how can it be that easy? Doesn’t life just happen? No it doesn’t! We directly create our reality and have a choice to live exactly how we want!

Really? Yes really! For a long time I was convinced I’d be an accountant forever, I couldn’t see past it and the money and the security were were really nice, but it was killing me, physically and mentally and if I didn’t make a change I’d hate to think how much more it would have affected me. Fast forward less than a year and I have a thriving business and having a photoshoot in almost every major city I visit seems like the new norm!! It’s surreal (and also totally essential for my business)! 🙂 Today I got the first photo back from my latest shoot in LA with my photographer Wendy K Yalom and hair & make-up stylist Melissa Hoffmann Rangel. But it didn’t just happen I made it happen and here’s how….

Step 1. Figure out what you truly desire, this can often be the hardest part, but it has to be something really compelling, like travel abroad- or a photoshoot! (even though I was nervous and nearly cancelled it- I still really wanted it).
Step 2. Assign an amount to that desire, how much will it cost to have this in your life, do some research if you have to! And it’s often not as much as you think it will be, for example you might not have a huge deposit ready to buy the million dollar home you desire, but you could rent it with a friend and find the money monthly (that’s what I did!)


Step 3. Be passionately committed to achieving your desired outcome, and unavailable for anything else. Really get some emotion involved in the desire.

Step 4. Create a vision, so you can clearly see it, imagine it happening like you’re already there. What can you see, where exactly are you, what can you hear, how do you feel, what are you wearing?
Step 5. Believe This can also be very difficult for some but it’s essential or negates all the other work so far… if you don’t believe, this is a good time to be really aware of the words, thoughts and limiting beliefs coming up for you. (I find EFT- Emotional Freedom Techniques, really effective to eliminate these issues)
Step 6. Ask! Where is the money supposed to come from? This is where it allows us to make our lives a WHOLE lot easier, by asking the question we can access The Universe, our intuition or God, (wherever you stand on that) and allow yourself to hear the message and take Inspired action, from the inspiration, comes massive action.NOTE: Massive action without inspiration first, gets you nowhere, except; stressed, busy, overwhelmed and broke, trust me I know!!!

Why I cried live on Periscope today!

I would never have described myself as an emotional person, going for long stints of time, even years without shedding a tear, and now i’m crying while live streaming on Periscope, fabulous!!

I have just completed Tony Robbins 4 Day Leadership Academy, and thank god I had! I have been doing a daily wrap up of my main take-aways on Periscope and just finished my last one, and yes I cried.

It’s been an emotional and exciting week, some amazing speakers and stories of resilience and perseverance from World Champion adventure racers to Navy SEALS, Body language experts (yes I know if you’re lying to me! :)) and everything in between, even a talk on violence mediation but the main theme of the week was how to conduct a Tony Robbins style intervention. I’ve watched him do so many I think there were about 34 at Date with Destiny alone, the type where you sit glued to your seat, unable to breathe as the tension in the room builds as you never know what he’s going to do next, but he always gets a result! It’s a different style of coaching than I usually do, but I love learning and building my knowledge.

I was also matched with a great buddy, who had never done a single bit of Tony or personal development, so it was amazing to help her grow and take it all in (it can be a bit overwhelming and confusing at first), especially as this is one of his higher level courses, it was unusual for someone so new to be there, so they rattled through all the information, but she was so open and willing to learn, I think she had her mind blown! 🙂
But why all the tears? Well an hour before my first client call of the day I got an email from her, warning me she was having suicidal thoughts and it would be more of a therapy session than a coaching session, I took a deep breath and came up with a strategy, I had just been on a Leadership course after all! I decided I would use the Intervention process we had just learned, even the parts I thought I’d never use on my clients, as I decided to just trust the process and go for it. She came on the call in tears and began her story, and I started the process, within minutes I had her smiling, and by the end of she was laughing and said “I didn’t think it was possible to feel this good so quickly” We set her up with some new empowering beliefs, and an anchor that immediately takes her to a feeling of being proud, loved and strong. You can literally change your state in a heartbeat as Tony says and he’s right!

When talking about my learnings on Periscope, a guy said he wasn’t driven by wealth or money but rather helping people, and I explained my theory on that one;

1) Me being wealthy doesn’t stop anyone else having wealth
2) It actually let’s me give back more and help MORE clients
3) It allows me to give more to charity
4) It allows me to volunteer more of my time
5) It let’s me inspire more people with my message

I could go on….but then I spoke about the girl I got to help today and got a bit emotional, yes I was a bit tired after a crazy week. It’s not about the money, but being able to help people, who knew me attending a course, would lead to such a fast turn around in someone else, but I’m so glad it did. I am still a Success Coach- NOT a therapist, and you don’t have to be broken or broke to work with me, in fact the opposite is true, but I’m eternally grateful I have the skills up my sleeve to deal with it when it happens as you never know when you might need them!

Are you delaying your photoshoot until you’re perfect?

Hey,

Does the thought of having a photoshoot send you into a panic? Tell me about it! The thought of being photographed in public for me was terrifying, wind the clock back to only December last year, I was given the opportunity, on a Friday, to be in a magazine but needed photos of a certain quality by Monday, ahh, I nearly said no, as the thought of having photos taken, and having to ask for help (getting a professional photographer booked at that short notice wasn’t going to happen),were both way 11899932_1692590604304200_7729402262352360133_nout of my comfort zone, but I said yes and thought I’ll find a way, so I messaged a friend and asked if he had an hour to spare, he said ‘How about now?’, I said ‘Give me an hour’, (I was still in my PJs), I jumped in the shower, quickly put on some make-up, threw some things in a bag and ran down to the beach.  He was a legend and took a bunch of great shots, but I was so critical of myself I took any fun out of it!  Since then I’ve had professional photo shoots done in Sydney, Paris and just yesterday LA.  (I know this sounds indulgent but these photos have elevated my brand and have been an essential part of building my business, plus it gets very boring for me and my team staring at the same photos everyday!). You’d think I feel like an old pro but all the old insecurities come up every time, especially as after Paris, I told my photographer Wendy Yalom, that I was on a mission and would have dropped a load of weight by LA!    11059979_10153534358822641_5751084161189086440_o (1)

But yesterday was another huge visibility challenge, it was a bit easier than last time, as I knew what I was in for! But part of me was even more nervous than last time as I felt I’d gained a few lbs, I was angry at myself and even considered trying to cancel at the last minute, as I knew I wasn’t feeling confident in myself.  But the lovely Wendy shared that she would be out of business if everyone waited until they were completely ‘ready’ and 100% comfortable in their bodies!! So I put on my Big Girl Spanx and just went for it!!! 🙂 We will NEVER be perfect, there is no such thing, we have to stop worrying and just do it! I was blown away by the lovely comments of passers by and how supportive Wendy and her team have been. (Hair and make-up by Melissa Hoffmann Rangel)

I also managed to swallow the nerves about getting my makeup done in the hotel lobby bar, being stared at by passers by, trying to figure out if I was famous, and the best overheard quote of the day ‘OMG I think the Kardashians are here!’ Maybe she saw the hair and my ass! Classic!  🙂

But the highlight of the day for me was Rodeo drive and stopping by the Regent Beverly Wilshire, were you obsessed with the movie Pretty Woman growing up too? It was a family favourite, although I’m sure we were way too young to be watching it, but it was more about the love story, the transformation and the pretty clothes. Although I haven’t had quite so dramatic a story, being there seemed to complete my own transformation, as we strolled up Rodeo Drive, talking to people and having my photo taken, I realized how dramatically different my life was, from grey office booth to feeling a bit like a celebrity for the day, and to call it work seemed a bit surreal, and at points like an out of body experience, I am so incredibly grateful of how far i’ve come and that I can help people do the same.  I asked for this extra picture, just for my Dad, a big Julia Roberts fan! 

Don’t let perfectionism and self-criticism hold you back another day!   

Lots of love,

What I learned from Marianne Williamson….

Hey,

How are you? It’s been another amazing week here in LA la Land, graduating and winning one of the #NewNormal Awards was such an honour. As was spending four days with my mentor is Gina DeVee, she is very inspiring, so when you find out11163859_10152956644596231_659119566461780710_o  your mentor’s mentor is speaking, you get yourself there, especially when you missed out on tickets to her recent Australian event!

Marianne Williamson has almost a dozen international best-selling books and has been called one of the most influential voices of her generation, and this lady embodies that completely.

Marianne was teaching from A Course in Miracles (a universal spiritual text), she hosts and live streams these weekly talks in Hollywood, I think as her way to give back to the community (if you can’t afford the recommended $15 donation you can get in anyway), she lectured for about an hour and then took questions from online and in-person in the theatre, she walked the audience, and answered some difficult and deeply troubling questions from child abuse to murder, it was emotional and I sat glued to my seat, I could hardly breathe, especially when she stood next to me, while answering a question about can you believe in miracles if you don’t believe in God?

Although brought up in a family where we went to church most Sundays, my parents weren’t particularly devout and I am not a religious person myself, but I began to see the parallels between, personal development and religion, both believe in an ultimate higher power that is good, call it God, Buddha, Allah or the Universe we all believe there is something higher. Marianne stood at a lectern which could as easily have been a pulpit, and quoted a Course in Miracles like it was the Bible (they are about the same size). But don’t let that put you off!

After the talk I went up to get her to sign my book, after the heavy atmosphere and topics covered, it didn’t seem right to ask for a photograph! 
11823060_1691799301049997_8853732391113898342_o
‘The Universe is set up to work on your behalf.’ However to access the miraculous, you must come from a place of love, not fear. Fear (or the ego) and these undisciplined negative thoughts, undermine the  power of the universe. What? Just because I’m scared I don’t get a miracle too? True story!

Our egos speak first and speak loudest, but there is always an option whether to listen to it or not.  I was just talking to a client today, who is doing so well, she had a situation where she was overcome by jealousy of another’s success, but chose to reframe her thoughts and focus on how she can do what this lady does and also have her success and thanked her for showing her what’s possible. This was not her reaction in the past, but in that moment she knew she had a choice to wallow in it and let it consume her, or thank her. Coming from this place of love, is so important, and a lesson I needed to be reminded of too. I know it almost sounds too easy to be true, but try it. We don’t have the choice on what we are to learn but ‘we have a choice to whether we learn it through joy or pain‘…hmm one to think about! 

One way to stay out of the fear is to mediate daily, she suggested even for 5 mins in the morning. I love meditating as I get the best ideas, but had fallen out of the habit recently with travel and the course, and surprise, surprise the fear had crept back in, the last few days I’m back in my practice and so much happier and feel like I’m back in my flow.  Give it a try, you don’t have to sit cross-legged in fisherman pants and a tie-dye T-shirt, sometimes (ok most of the time!) I even do it lying in bed. 

Thankfully, with the tools I use; EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), both work incredibly well at quieting that fear and money-mind!  Don’t let fear block your miracles! 

Lots of love,

Do you know what you desire?

Hey,

So I have been in LA since Saturday, and I LOVE it, the energy here is just amazing and exactly what I needed! When I feel like that, crazy things start happening, and I start to expect miracles every day. But when my energy is off, it’s literally the opposite!
11846666_1689245531305374_3030131317386577804_n - Copy
I’m here in LA to graduate and celebrate the end of a year long high-level Transformational life coaching certification, it has been one of the most amazing but hardest things I’ve ever done in my life, we have been held to such a high standardand I have really had to raise my game in all areas of my life. Plus as a habitual procrastinator and crammer, I’ve actually had to turn in work consistently which has kept me accountable and in momentum all year.

One of the crazy things that happened today was that I was surprised to be called on stage as one of The Academy’s top 5, success stories of the year and awarded the #NewNormal Award, I was blown away and honoured to share the stage with the other incredible coaches, who I greatly admire. Even though the stage terrifies me it’s definitely getting easier the more I do it, even if I did get a bit emotional up there today! 🙂

11703479_10153628921354131_2475433229887521853_o11791984_1689247024638558_6499144612670017936_o (1)So back to the main topic, what do you desire? I was asked this question when I got to LA and had literally no answer. But desire is the main element to any powerful manifesting and if you aren’t in the right vibration it’s very difficult to even know what you truly desire, when I am operating in my masculine (my default mode when stressed- although I’m working on it!) I lose my vision and find it hard to get in touch with what I really want, what will feel good, and even struggle to access my intuition, which I have relied on so much this year.

So after 3 days of no work, a morning at the spa, hanging out with some great girls, going to cocktail parties, shopping and just going with the flow, I finally know exactly what I REALLY desire again. Today at the conference we were asked the same question and 2 pages of desires poured out of me, really beautiful big ones, that feel amazing and I know are the next level for me and my business, but if I didn’t let myself dream that big, or give myself the permission to have them I would never get there. But I also had to start somewhere that was believable for me, I have already achieved many of my 2015 goals, some of which I thought were crazy then, but I still wrote them down and allowed myself to dream it!

Give yourself some time and space to check in and see what feels right, feel it in your body, get creative, allow yourself to dream. When I signed up to the Academy it just felt right, but also seemed like the success was for ‘other people’, but I knew I had to put myself in the game.

Don’t let fear or limiting beliefs crowd out those dreams!
Lots of love,
Jo xx

My interview with Inspired Action TV

I have been getting organized for my LA trip, I leave August 1st, and August seemed to be far away but it’s only a week on Saturday, I have booked in another photoshoot, think I’m addicted, so prep for that takes time – not that I’m complaining!

Also the book I co-authored, with Jim Lutes and Jim Britt (Tony Robbins’ original mentor and Jim Rohn’s former business partner!) will be available very soon, I just ordered my test copy today, excited to hold it in my hands and will share that soon!

And my 6 week Money Blocks clearing telecourse is now on it’s second week and going amazingly well, with people getting big shifts. I have to be totally honest a tiny part of me wondered if it was really possible, I know I get huge shifts for people 1:1 and I am so confident doing it, but there was this little doubt whether it would work as part of a group setting, so when i see comments like this and private messages, it just gives me shivers, knowing I can create breakthroughs without it always having to be 1:1. Plus I love the support people are getting in the Money Mastermind group. 

Screen Shot 2015-09-06 at 4.13.26 pmI have had 3 interviews this week, one for a podcast, one for the Divine Money Mindset Telesummit (details coming soon) and one with Mark Flores of Inspired Action TV. It’s strange how these things come together, but I love getting the opportunity to share my story and message with a wider audience.

The Secret behind The Secret

Ever wondered why the The Secret or Law of Attraction doesn’t seem to work for everyone? If it really was that simple wouldn’t we all have everything we ever dreamed of and more? Have you ever tried to do it but it hasn’t worked? Or is manifesting the bad stuff easier, so you think it kinda works, but you’re not convinced?

I had been struggling for six months in my business and doing everything *right*, vizualizing, affirmations, thinking positively, writing down my goals, taking massive action, but it still wasn’t working and I was getting nowhere…until I discovered the power of clearing my money blocks, I had no idea I had so many subconscious niggling doubts that were sabotaging my every move! Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of change, fear of visibility, lack of clarity. And I was questioning , am I good enough? Do I really deserve it? Can I handle it? All these fears and doubts were causing Psychological Reversal , and were making my energy negative and run backwards, and undermining all my attempts at being positive! No wonder I couldn’t manifest anything except a parking ticket!  But thankfully I learned the REAL secret to The Secret, to allow me to effortlessly manifest anything. By simply making sure to remove all tail enders, they are the little thoughts after a positive statement that reverse it, all those little …yeah rights …but it’s not for you…it’s ok for everyone else…it didn’t work last time…but I don’t know HOW…i’ve tried everything…they must be better/smarter/more deserving than me. By removing them your conscious is aligned with who you are at a deep level and moving forward is so much easier!

No one needs to live constrained by limiting beliefs and be caught in a negative pattern of fear, doubt and stress, these beliefs you’ve learned over the years are so deep in your subconscious if you don’t purposely shift them with powerful breakthrough techniques such as EFT & NLP, it’s almost impossible to break the patterns, I know you want success and it’s possible for you! xx

How I manifested speaking at the IIN conference!

In March last year I was sitting in the audience at the first ever IIN Australia conference, and I remember the founder Joshua Rosenthal saying if you don’t have a Facebook Page yet, you probably won’t make it, what I think he was really saying was if you’re not being visible you won’t make it, and he was so right! I’d didn’t have one and I was screaming inside, ‘I’ve just started, give me a chance, I’m coming!’, I also made a decision in that moment that next year I’d be on the stage!  It took me another 6 months before I actually had a FB page, and I had no idea what I might be on the stage speaking about but the desire was there!

Then out of the blue a few months ago I got an email asking if i’d like to speak at the conference, obviously I was surprised and jumped at the chance, but then nothing really happens by accident and I remembered that I’d done a powerful exercise months previously to manifest it, while studying to become an NLP Practitioner.  The Future Goal technique, is a timeline process where you drop your outcome into your future, which allows your unconscious mind to literally draw it towards you!   When doing the exercise I also dropped a Paris photoshoot into my future, and that happened too, I think I’ll be doing more future goals and updating my vision board very soon! 🙂

My talk was literally standing room only, I was blown away by the number of people and the response to my presentation;
Overcoming limiting beliefs and the power of being visible. I truly believe understanding the power of limiting beliefs on our the success or failure of our businesses should not be ignored!  I think it’s the most important distinction i’ve gained from all my study. I got lots of people asking for a copy of my slides, so I have shared them, you can also download them from my website. http://missionbalance.thewellnesspro.com/iin-slides/Lots of love,

WHOA My client made $32,299 in the 10 days after our money blocks clearing session!!!

There’s nothing more fulfilling for me than hearing about my clients’ success, I know I shouldn’t but I get a bit emotional sometimes, but it really makes me feel amazing! This is why I do what I do! It’s quite funny as Lexi is the first person, who’s come to me thinking she didn’t have a money story, I’ll let her tell the rest….WY3_7088

‘I remember not really knowing what to expect when I had my first session with Joanna. I knew it would be useful, but I didn’t think I had much to work on. I immediately told her that I had a high wealth consciousness and zero money story, so I had no clue why I was experiencing blocks and not making the money I desired that month. Turns out, I absolutely did have a money story, and quite a deep rooted one at that. However, I don’t know if I would have truly realized the depth of it without the help of Jo. I literally can’t even begin to explain the magic that she works in these sessions—it’s truly remarkable and such an incredible gift.

To be honest, I’ve never opened up to anyone to share my story—it wasn’t an easy one for me to talk about, as I’m sure it’s not with many people. However, she made me feel so incredibly comfortable and loved and had zero judgements whatsoever about the things I told her. In just a couple of hours she helped me uncover and begin to heal years and years of damage that had been keeping me blocked off to the wealth that I desired. I seriously couldn’t believe the transformation I went through in such a short amount of time. It was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before and I left my session feeling awakened and incredibly empowered. 

That’s not where it ends either. In the following 10 days after our session, I made $32,299 in my business. Looking at those numbers, I can barely believe it myself.One thing I know for certain is that without the help of Jo and our incredibly life-changing session, I definitely would not have achieved such success so quickly.I am grateful beyond words for everything that Jo has done for me and I couldn’t recommend her more highly. If there is any small part of you that is curious about working with her, JUST DO IT. I promise you won’t regret it—in fact, the only regret you’ll have is if you choose not to work with her 🙂 She’s one in a million and worth all of that and more!‘ Lexi D’Angelo

Lots of love,
