Is Your Worrying Manifesting Disaster?

Episode 42- Is Your Worrying Manifesting Disaster?
Did you know that the history of the word worry means to choke or strangle? How much of your time do you spend worrying – about anything? And how is that worry ‘strangling’ any good you are creating? In this week’s Fresh Tracks show Kelly Robbins delves into the inner sanctuary of our mind and examines the effect worrying has on our lives. From the relationships we manifest to how much money we make, worrying plays a significant factor in our overall health, happiness and success. Kelly also goes in-depth on the topics of wealth and abundance to help you examine the roles debt and dependency play in worrying.

With tips to help you derail repetitive worrying and taking control of your thoughts, after listening to this week’s show you’ll easily be manifesting your dreams rather than repelling success! How do gratitude, responsibility and patience play a role in not only manifesting the life and business of our dreams, but creating anything we want from a healthy body to an abundant bank account? Understanding the significance of the love/hate relationship we have when we are dependent on someone and how our natural tendency to rebel can get us into debt is all covered on this week’s show!

Create Consistent Cash Flow and Feel Financially Confident

In episode 40 of Fresh Tracks we have author and money coach Rev. Karen Russo. Karen shares her insights on making money and reveals why some of us struggle to accomplish our financial goals and others don’t. Did you think starting your business would change your financial picture? Karen’s says tapping into your unlimited abundance calls for a little bit of courage and recognizing the importance of being able to give and receive. Understand that each person is a center for prosperity – even you – and your job is to know this and remove beliefs that prevent that flow of money from coming to you.

You may have heard that you have to be a generous giver to be a generous receiver. Karen shares that giving includes giving your attention to your money and not hiding from it and shares some best practices on how to incorporate this into our daily lives.  In this week’s show we talk about the importance of including money in your spiritual practice and not separating it into a stand-alone section of our life. Money is energy and knowing that we are the ones that infuse money with meaning (good or bad) can provide some insight into the prosperity or struggle you are currently experiencing.

Money plays such an important role in our ability to cut Fresh Tracks that it’s presence, or lack of presence, in our life is often the place we make decisions from.

Episode 33 – 3 Steps for Manifesting Anything you Want

Episode 33 – Kelly Robbins shares with us the three keys to manifesting anything you want. Sounds simple right? Whether it’s more money, a different job or feeling differently (such as happy vs mad all the time), we ALL have the innate ability to manifest. The simple truth is no one teaches us how to manifest what we want with intention and so we struggle. Actually, what no one tells us is that we are ALWAYS manifesting – even when it’s what we don’t want. Which is crazy!

All the things in your life that you have and you don’t want you are actually manifesting. You are just unconsciously manifesting it rather than manifesting with intention. In this week’s show Kelly also shares four of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to manifesting and in embracing personal development in general. Breaking through the ‘self-help shelf’ syndrome where many of us get stuck as well as how to recognize if you are stuck and breaking through it.

Finally Kelly shares how asking the question ‘What is needed for me to make a shift today’ can be the biggest manifesting breakthrough of all.

Show Notes:

2:00 – Precautions before you begin the manifesting process
3:31 – Beware the self-help shelf syndrome
7:00 – What do you really want to manifest anyway?
9:00 – Inspired = In-Spirit means you’ve got this!
12:35 – The secret key to KNOWING that opportunity is around you
15:30 – The role rituals can play in manifesting
19:33 – You can’t meditate your way to success. When to start moving in order to manifest.
