Many people have an unconscious fear of success. They’re afraid that it could attract negative attention, or affect their life in a detrimental way. But those fears are generally an outdated remnant of the past. This short, guided meditation is designed to recognize those fears and let them go so you can experience the success you deserve.



Transcript:
Thank you for joining me. I’m Linda-Ann Stewart of Heartvision Consulting. And today, I’d like to take you on an internal journey to overcome your fear of success. Many people have an unconscious fear of success. They’re afraid that it could attract negative attention, or affect their life in a detrimental way. Do you have any such fears?

Those fears are generally an outdated remnant of the past. People either have had a bad experience or saw someone who did, and they want to avoid the pitfalls, so they avoid success. Has something like that happened to you? What they don’t realize is that they now have resources and knowledge that can help them deal with any such challenges. So their fears are no longer valid.

If you’re not experiencing the success you want, it’s a good bet that you’re somehow limiting yourself. You have beliefs and fears that are holding you back from taking the actions that are needed to achieve what you want. And that’s what I want to help you address today. It’s something I help many of my clients with.

I’m a vision strategist. I work with women service professionals and small business entrepreneurs who are frustrated because they’re spinning their wheels and lost in a forest of details of their business.

Using my 30 years of experience as a hypnotherapist, I coach them to intentionally develop and focus on the strategies that keep them on course so they bring their vision into reality.

This short guided meditation is designed to help you recognize your fears and let them go. And then to imagine yourself successful. When you do this, you create a new pattern in your subconscious and new pathways within your brain.

Close your eyes, if you want. Using your imagination, consider how much you want to be successful, whatever success means to you. Allow the excitement, enthusiasm for it, anticipation of it to build and fill you up. This is what you choose for yourself and it is appropriate and acceptable for you. You deserve it.

Now shift your attention to however you might be limiting that success, whatever fears you might have about it. Realize that these fears are insubstantial, they are like a mist that surrounds you. It’s a mist that you have created and held onto, but you don’t need it anymore.

Examine the fear and realize that you have outgrown it, that you have resources and knowledge that can help you overcome it now. You have everything you need within you to deal with any challenge that might arise in your life. Allow the mist to evaporate, since you don’t want it anymore.

Return your attention to your desire for success. The way is now open for you. Imagine confidently taking the actions necessary to achieve it. Imagine you are comfortable taking the actions, being successful and making wise decisions. All of this is now yours. You deserve it and it benefits everyone.
Open your eyes.

How did that feel? This is a first step for you to stop limiting yourself. The fear will probably arise again, because it’s a habit. But as you keep reminding yourself that it’s outdated, you’ll be creating a new, more positive habit that will support your success. How can you keep your mind focused on the fact that success is appropriate and available to you? What one thing can you hang onto? That is the key for you.

If you’d like some help in getting on course and achieving your goals, apply for a complimentary coaching consultation.

Thank you for watching. My hope is for all the doors to success open to you, within you and in your outer world. Take care.

Sparks of InsightIn Your Thoughts Can Change Your Life: The Twelve Essential Attitudes for Health, Harmony and Happiness, author Donald Curtis states that Jesus gave us a 3 action steps:
1. “Ask and it shall be given you.”
2. “Seek and ye shall find”
3. “Knock and it shall be opened unto you.”

Ask, believing that you can receive, in meditation and affirmation for what it is that you want. Then go out into the world, asking for guidance every step of the way. No matter what path you take, if you’re open and seeking, you’ll be directed. And persist, not giving up. This convinces the subconscious, which is the part of you that needs convincing, that you really do want it.

Meditation to Accept More Abundance

Would you like to have more abundance in your life? For the most part, the only person preventing it is you. Focusing on negative ideas limits your subconscious mind from finding opportunities in your life. The converse is also true. When you focus more on the positive, your subconscious seeks to help you achieve what you expect. This is a meditation to expand your acceptance of abundance so that your subconscious mind is primed to find it for you.



Transcript:
Would you like to have more abundance in your life? That’s a stupid question, isn’t it? Of course you would. So what’s preventing it? Believe it or not, for the most part, you are. Your old belief in struggle and lack are limiting the amount of abundance you accept. Those old ideas are causing difficulties in your life, because they’re what you expect. And your subconscious tries to help you achieve what you expect.

Another reason you may be restricting abundance is that you may feel uneasy accepting more. Have you ever felt that way? If so, you’re not alone. Many of my clients have had this issue. But that thought pattern is simply a shredded remnant from the past and doesn’t need to affect you anymore.

I’d like to lead you through a short meditation to open yourself to accepting more abundance into your life. When you do, you program your subconscious to scan the environment and seek to create it for you.

Linda-Ann Stewart of Heartvision Consulting, and I’m a vision strategist. You know how women business owners and entrepreneurs spin their wheels and get stuck as their business runs them? Using my 30 years of background as a hypnotherapist, I help them take charge, create strategies that keep them on track and accelerate their business to the next level and beyond. They align their heart with their vision and bring their vision into reality.

To begin to accept more abundance, you have to start with envisioning it flowing to you and then your accepting it. Now, abundance means many things. Health, harmony, peace, joy, prosperity and much more. What does abundance mean to you? How would it feel to have more of it in your life? Let’s start opening yourself up to that.

Close your eyes. Breath. Using your imagination, in any way that works for you, imagine a warm energy, a gold light, like sunshine, flowing down from the heavens towards you. It’s safe and comforting as it approaches. You welcome it. You know that it wants the best for you.

Imagine that you raise your arms to greet it, and create a funnel for it to pour into you. This energy is pure abundance, pure love, pure harmony, grace, joy, health, and all good things. This abundance guides, directs and inspires you along the next steps of your life. Ideas and solutions appear in your mind. New doors open, opportunities show up. Ideas and solutions appear in your mind. Your prosperity expands as you allow more abundance to flow into you. You are at peace as your acceptance of greater abundance grows.

This energy brings avalanches of abundance into your life. You expect the best to happen for you in any situation. Imagine everything falling into place for you. That this energy allows all of your needs be met. You are filled to overflowing the this energy of the abundance of all good. This abundance eases every step you take, making your way smooth and easy.

A golden river of light and good energy pours into and through you into your world, into every situation and circumstance in your life. You embrace this light and energy, allowing it to fill every part of your mind and body. You feel secure, uplifted and joyous. As you go about your day, you remind yourself of this abundance flowing into you, through you and into your world. When you’re ready, open your eyes.

I recommend you take a minute or two every morning to practice this. You may be surprised at what happens when you practice it regularly. Unexpected good will probably come your way. It does in mine when I remember to practice it. Synchronicities can happen to benefit you. I’ve won gift cards and had unexpected opportunities land in my lap. The imagery doesn’t take long and you have everything to gain.

If you’d like some help in achieving your goals, apply for a complimentary Clarify Your Vision coaching consultation.

I would love to hear how your life responds when you practice this meditation.

Sparks of InsightWhat spiritual disciplines are you doing to expand your awareness? Are you meditating each day, saying affirmations, acknowledging the goodness of the Universe in each situation, or some other activity? If you aren’t, then you’re closing off the flow of the Universe. Each day you need to touch into your spiritual core to renew yourself. Choose something, even if it’s only a five minute meditation every morning. A spiritual discipline keeps you on track and makes sure that you remember to exercise your connection to the Infinite.
