out? Be kind—no sense beating yourself up. That won't drive behavior change. Trust me, I've tried. Choose wonder over worry; it has a lot more mileage! 3. GET CLEAR ON WHERE YOU WANT TO BE I believe we are all here to become the grandest version of ourselves, to offer the best of our talent as well as the best of our care and connection in meaningful relationships. To do this, we need resources that make it possible, including time, money, and energy. Are you committed to share your very best potential with the world? If so, what would help you bring your "A" game? In this step, we clarify how much it will cost to achieve our assessment of true success. Then, we set out with steadfast determination to manifest the money we need to create it. This doesn't mean becoming greedy or driven by ego. Rather, it means asking our hearts and minds to enter into a closer partnership. If we choose to believe there is abundance in the world, what amount of money or type of flow would feel amazing? For me, this step took some self- love. I had to examine some obstacles in my thinking. Am I really worthy of what I desire? Do I deserve to be that happy? I needed to move from a maybe to an unwavering YES! We need to rewire the scarcity idea, which creates stress and competition, into an abundance idea that empowers us to be creative, generous, and grateful. Yo u r M & B i s w o r t h 2 C E s !

This vibration does not attract abundance. We need to find the next best feeling we can about money, or anything we desire. First, explore feeling hopeful, perhaps by creating a positive expectation or belief. Feel your way to enthusiasm, happiness, and ultimately joy, freedom, and empowerment. Money creates exchanges of energy between people. If you have integrity and use your powerful talents to help others, this exchange of energy should feel good. If it doesn't, what do you need to learn? Is something out of alignment with your values? Expand your wealth consciousness though education and know-how. Find podcasts or books that expand your money awareness. I love the advice, "Operate at a $1 million dollar frequency." When I first heard that, I thought, "Well, I am definitely not operating at that frequency now—but I am ready and willing to learn how." If we want to surround ourselves with higher vibration experiences, including more money, we need to be able to show up at that frequency. To start with, I needed to change my internal language about money, to stop thinking it was dirty or something only some people get to enjoy. 5. STAY IN SHAPE Once I raised my frequency and held my beliefs in limitless possibility, I needed to stay in shape. I did some things I never thought I would. I read wealth-consciousness books. I carefully found people I could talk to about the joy of money. I even crunched the numbers. How much will I need, per year, per month, per hour? Though I usually avoid details, I got specific—super specific. I got clear on exactly what I was shooting for. Then, I uncovered the why; I got clear on why I wanted this money by digging deep into how it would make me feel. Then, I practiced those feelings. Yep, it may sound crazy. I made a money mantra. Now, after I read it, I lean into the reason I value money as a resource: "As the founder of Conscious Time, I love earning money by helping clients remove obstacles to joy and success for the purpose of my enjoyment, delight, and generosity with my family and friends, as well as for the moral and spiritual greatness of the planet." THE ASARO TRIBE BELIEVES "Knowledge is Only Rumor Until It Lives in the Bones." It takes time—as well as self- awareness, courage, and commitment—for our learning to travel into our bones. After much practice, I have a positive, grateful relationship with money. Last month, I earned more gross income than ever. Even with this success, I know it is a constant work in progress. Enjoy the journey! Amy Andrews McMaster is the founder of Conscious Time, which supports organizational success through leadership coaching, team building, and workshops. McMaster believes it is critical to foster an environment of trust and honest communication so that team members are inspired to maximize their potential and contribute their talent to a shared mission.
