How Can I Co-Create Heaven on Earth?

Her life had been fraught by challenges and disappointments...
Her life had been fraught by challenges and disappointments…

I have been working with a client I’ll call Susan and recently she asked me this important question: “How can I co-create heaven on earth?” It was a great question for Susan to ask because her life has been full of difficulties and challenges….not a life that would reflect heaven on earth by any stretch of the imagination.

Susan was born into the middle of a family with six children. So Susan was a middle child, and often middle children do not receive much attention. She was not a star student like her older sister. She was not talented athletically like her 2 older brothers. She was not funny like her 2 younger sisters. Susan wasn’t a “star” at anything. Plus, Susan was a quiet child, so it was very easy for her to be overlooked during her formative years.

It is not hard to imagine that one of Susan’s core beliefs was “I don’t matter.” And there were two important corollaries from that “My needs don’t matter” and “What I want doesn’t matter.” Susan spent a lot of time caring for the needs and wants of others, hoping that if she was good at helping others get what they want, that those people might give her a crumb of attention or affection.

People just want to use me....

Over time, Susan became an “over-giver” and she suffered from the mounting anger and resentment simmering beneath the surface that tend to accompany that sense of giving, giving, giving and not receiving. As our work together began to reveal her false beliefs about herself, beliefs about life and others opened up as well. “Life is against me.” “No one cares about me.” “Other people just want to use me.”

Of course the experience of heaven on earth would be unique to each of us….

The experience of heaven on earth is unique to each of us! And when you think about it, of course that is how it would be. We are unique individuals with unique preferences, and unique sets of gifts and talents. The miraculous thing about heaven on earth is that it can hold this complexity, offering to each of us the experiences we long for.

As Susan allowed herself to release the choices that generated the evidence that her old beliefs were true she simultaneously opened the door of her heart to higher perspectives on her own identity. Her gift for music, always a source of pleasure in her life, opened up, and she began to write songs and perform them.

Performing her music for others became a source of deep joy and fulfillment

While once she would never have considered performing in front of an audience, Susan chose to face her fears and share her music openly. She found that not only was she able to play for others, but their appreciation of her music made her heart pound with joy! Performing became for Susan a powerful means of self-expression and fulfillment!

Her soulful folk songs were appreciated by many, and she developed a following in the town where she lived. For Susan, the sky is now the only limit she perceives, and it will be fascinating to see where she will go as she follows her destiny path in the the future. But wherever that journey leads, Susan is confident that her experience will more and more deeply mirror her vision of heaven on earth.

Is It Profitable to Follow Your Spirit?

She knew she had to make new choices...life was unbearable now...

I have been working with a client I will call Rose who is an entrepreneur. She has been running her business for 7 years, and while she has been able to keep the doors open, she never has one penny extra. She is always on the edge of disaster.

She came to me exhausted and ready to give up because she was beginning to be unable to deal with the feelings of anger and resentment that had been springing up around everything that she is having to “do without.” She wants her business to not only serve her clients, but bring in an abundant income for her as well.

Through our work Rose has discovered many false beliefs that have been limiting her ability to thrive as an entrepreneur. These beliefs have cut her off from abundant options that are surrounding the value that Rose brings to the community she serves. Slowly Rose is seeing new possibilities and making new choices.

She had endured years of emotional and physical abuse

She has let go of a very traumatic past which included emotional and physical abuse. She has been able to see how her own identity as a victim of abuse was limiting her view of what is possible for her. And a huge break through came when Rose realized that it was she who was calling the abusive experiences into her present day reality. Without realizing it, Rose kept those memories fresh and real by seeing herself as a victim of her circumstances.

Endless possibilities exist, so make a new choice....

The power to choose a perspective, the ability to shift into a higher perspective on any situation or circumstance is where we as co-creators with life begin to feel a transformation. For Rose this happened in conjunction with following her spirit with regard to a purchase she made for her business.

While there are many, many reasons why this purchase could benefit her business it was not a necessary expenditure, and Rose could not justify the expense. But when it came down to a decision whether to buy or not buy Rose looked into her heart and heard the word “buy it.” So she did. It made no sense, but Rose did it.

Miracles occurred...
Miracles occurred…

Within 24 hours new business that was totally unexpected appeared, and the cost of the new equipment was paid for. And on top of that, the equipment gave her access to some opportunities that would never have come her way without the present of this equipment.

This shift from head to heart has given Rose a new enthusiasm for her work. The burden of a sense of lack has lessened, and Rose feels a sense of security in making heart decisions that never came when she tried to figure out next steps.

Saying yes to life...

“New possibilities have been showing up that were completely unexpected!” said Rose. “I had no idea how much I was holding myself back by refusing to allow my inner guidance to help me make decisions.”

When you begin to say “yes” to life, to allow life to be exactly as it is, you open the door to  the ability to co-create your life. That is why I want to invite you to download my checklist The 5 Keys to Conscious Co-creation. This checklist enables you to assess your co-creation skills.
