WEEK TWO PRACTICES:

1) NOTICE MONEY COMING IN: Pause. Ground your energy with one of the tools in the resources I sent.  Look at the number coming in. Look at the name of the source of the money. See if you can feel anything in your body during the receiving of the money: posture, breath, less tension in your jaw, neck and hold those feelings or sensations for at least 30 seconds, if possible.

2) Possibly try working with these phrases:

I DESERVE TO NOT LIVE IN FEAR. 

I DESERVE TO HAVE ENOUGH. 

I DESERVE TO LIVE WITH DIGNITY. 

Repeat above by noticing any shifts in your body, posture, breath, tension, emotions that come up. We are trying to shift the unconscious, visceral and embodied relationship with money that might actually be driving the bus, more than your conscious mind. 

3) Taking up space exercises: Find embodied dignity and push arms in front, to the side, proud chest if possible. Maybe stand up and take up space in the same way. Notice the resistance to take up space.
