Why Raising My Coaching Rates Is Bringing Me JOY and CONFIDENCE

Money. Just the word MONEY causes a myriad of emotions for people, and for most people, they are not positive emotions. From the moment we enter the world, we begin absorbing all the limiting thoughts about money that are pervasive in our culture and families.

“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

“Work hard, and SAVE what you earn to ensure you have enough in the future.”

“It’s not easy to make money.”

“The love of money is the root of all evil.”

“It’s sinful to want to be rich.”

“Money will ruin you.”

“There’s never enough money.”

Do any of these sound familiar?

They do to me, and I have gone through several years of deprogramming these limiting beliefs in order to get to the place I am now, where

  • I have LET GO of my attachment to money,
  • I don’t have any fear of the LACK of money,
  • I am TRUSTING in the Universe to always provide for me, and
  • I am EXPERIENCING the abundance and provision of LIFE.

And NOW as I walk more fully into my dream life, I’m at a new turning point:

I am EXCITED to receive money and to earn money DOING what I LOVE to DO.

I’m ENJOYING money – I’m LOVING money!

It’s SO FUN to make money using my gifts and talents!

Lately I have been noticing how powerful my coaching calls with my clients are.

I get done with a session, and I feel the insane power that just flowed through me to transform someone’s life.

It’s palpable.

It’s mind-blowing.

It’s life-altering.

I have a GIFT.

As I have started TRUSTING in my gift of intuition and my ability to coach people through their myriad of life issues, I have been ENJOYING it more.

Before I start every coaching call, I say to myself,

“I’m great at this.  I’m a natural at this.  I have the power of LOVE flowing through me.  I was BORN to do this.  Spirit, let me be a powerful conduit of LOVE and LIGHT to this person’s life.”

And it never fails, these sessions are AMAZING.

And as I’ve been feeling this power and great VALUE in what I’m offering to people, I’ve noticed a gap in what I’m earning versus what I’m giving.

I finish a session and I think, WOW – that was life-changing.

That was worth WAY more than what I got paid for it.

And it’s not a negative thought – it’s a joyful, exciting realization that what I’m giving to the world is VERY VALUABLE.

That what I’m giving is a worth a LOT.

That there is actually no amount of money I could receive that would equal the value of changing someone’s life, of being a conduit for their CLARITY, of being a catalyst for their transformation.

And that it’s time to VALUE who I am and what I’m doing by charging more for what I’m offering.

I will freely admit to you, that just like stepping up to ANY new level in my destiny, it’s SCARY.  There are all kinds of doubts that arise as I imagine that first call with a new client, telling them how much I charge now for a coaching package.

But along with the nerves, is GREAT JOY, INCREASED STRENGTH and confidence, as I send out this new powerful vibration to the Universe that I am VALUING my gifts and my time. That NOELLE is valuable. That NOELLE is deserving of all the resources that life has to offer, including money.

Every time I get paid for using my gifts, I feel great JOY. I feel such excitement now!

The old Noelle would have felt ASHAMED for getting paid for having so much fun. That old Noelle would not have felt deserving of getting paid well.

Not so with today’s Noelle. This new me is receiving this abundance with GREAT JOY, with the excitement of a little girl who never learned that there was anything limiting or negative about money.

When I get paid now, it feels like I’m 6 years old, and someone just bought a cup of refreshing lemonade from my stand and paid me one dollar, and they LOVE my lemonade.  YAY!!  It’s fun!!!

So what limiting beliefs do you have about money?

Are you afraid of it?

Are you ashamed for wanting it?

Do you feel deserving of getting paid a nice amount for what you do?

I encourage you to take an inventory of your current beliefs about money, and then open your heart to the possibility that they’re not true.

Let these thoughts go, and receive the abundance that is rightfully YOURS as a precious and powerful GIVER of LOVE in the world.

How I Easily Accelerate My Destiny By FEELING As If I Already Am a World Leader

As I mentioned in my blog post yesterday, it is beyond my comprehension and wildest dreams that I have already launched a SCHOOL, within just 2 months of embarking on my Dreams to Reality Tour. I have successfully built the School for Dreamers, with 7 amazing students, a full first course which includes DYNAMIC weekly video lectures recorded from my van, personal review and feedback of the writing exercises, private Facebook group, and weekly coaching calls. The next session of the school begins on June 1st, and YOU are more than welcome to join us on this life-changing journey, if you are HUNGRY and LONGING to walk into the life of your dreams.

I look around now, since launching the school, and see that these online courses are all the rage. I had no idea. The inspiration and idea to do this came about very organically, and with no thoughts of what I SHOULD do, or of copying what any other leaders are doing.

I look at where I am now, a leader in this spiritual awakening on our planet, a spiritual teacher and life coach, a founder of a school, and I think, “How did this happen to me, so FAST?!” I’ve had the School for Dreamers vision for several years now, but if you had asked me WHEN I thought this would happen in my life time-line, I would have said it would be in my later years, when I’m in my 60s or 70s, after a lifetime of experience and wisdom, after traveling the world with Vince, when I have a LOT more wisdom to share than I do now.

I would have PEED my pants if you had told me that I would launch the school at age 36.

WHAT?!

And YET, this is the reality I’m living. I live in a van, and I’ve launched this school that is changing people’s lives, while LIVING in this tiny home. While I’m in a life where every few days we look for a new place to park our home, for FREE, incognito, hoping no one will knock on our door in the middle of the night and tell us to move (THIS has actually happened – that will be a story for a future blog post).

How did this big dream happen so fast? I’ll tell you EXACTLY how it happened, because I remember the moment as CLEAR as day. It was February 19, just a little over a month ago, and I was letting myself have a full day of journaling and dreaming. I had been in a time of craziness with the move into our new tiny home and my YouTube channel exploding, and I felt a little disconnected from myself, so I decided to take a full day to reconnect.

I let myself DREAM.

I let go of all the TO DOs, all the little details of my life, and I reconnected with the BIG VISION.

I let myself FEEL what it would feel like to already BE that famous, wealthy person I know I will be someday.

What would it FEEL like to have a reach like Oprah, like Taylor Swift – someone THAT well-known on the earth, someone that wealthy. How would I FEEL today if I had that kind of reach in the world?

And I let myself feel that highest self.

Here is what I wrote in my journal that day:

“How does a wealthy, famous, WORLD LEADER of JOY act? She gives FREELY and RECEIVES FREELY. How FULLY can I EMBRACE THIS DESTINY? How FULLY can I CLOTHE MYSELF in this reality? HOW FULLY can I IGNORE EVERY circumstance that points me to a lower reality? Give what I HAVE to GIVE. If I ALREADY AM that HIGHEST VERSION of myself – OUTSIDE of Time – how would I LIVE? If there is NOTHING I lack, How would I act? What would I give? What would I do? SING, SPEAK, WRITE, GIVE. No LIMITS!! I could offer a course that includes coaching, just to teach people everything I know about walking into your dreams.”

And there it was. It didn’t come from a place of “How can I make money while I’m on the road?” or “What should I be doing to get me into the life of my dreams as a teacher?”

NO, it was WAY more simple than that.

It came from the powerful place of, “Since I ALREADY AM a world-famous spiritual teacher and leader, what can I GIVE?”

And there it was.

And within one week of that inspirational moment, I fully launched the school — with 7 students who are engaged and are using what I’m giving to transform their lives and accelerate their own journeys of healing and growth.

I didn’t have to do big launches or lots of advertising – the students just appeared, because they were ready to receive what I was ready to give.

So where are YOU on this journey towards the life of your dreams?

If you are wanting to accelerate it, to move forward, but you just don’t know how, I would LOVE to help you in this process.

It turns out, I don’t need to wait until I’m in my 60s or 70s to teach other dreamers how to really do this thing, because what qualifies me to help people NOW, at age 36, is the fact that I AM CURRENTLY LIVING my dream life, and I have learned how to hear my own voice and follow inspiration and joy in everything I do.

I want to teach you how to do the same, because inside of YOU is every answer you need.

Let’s go on this journey together!

Fully Living My New DREAM Life: How I’ve Embraced the Craziness and Found Peace and JOY

I’m back! I have missed connecting with all of you here on this blog – it’s hard to believe it’s been over a month since I’ve written a post, and yet in many ways it feels like it’s been a YEAR.

The insane magnitude of everything that’s happened since we left on this tour almost 2 months ago is beyond description, and WAY too much to capture in one blog post. I have risen to a new level. And I am OVERJOYED that I have now adjusted in such a way that I’m able to stand on solid ground in this new and magical world and share my experiences with all of you.

I am learning how to operate in a new level of fullness – after 3 years of REST and deep internal growth, with almost no plans or schedule of any kind, I am now in a life of busyness and outflow (balanced with powerful daily times of rest and internal escape) to the point where I actually have a SCHEDULE. What?! A schedule? If you had told the Noelle from one year ago that I would someday have a daily work schedule, I would have laughed in your face.

I went from an insane work schedule in 2011 doing something I didn’t love in the corporate world, to a free-flowing life of growth for 3 years where I embraced the beautiful reality of living in the moment and having NO plans or structure to my daily life whatsoever.

I honestly never thought I would need a schedule or plans again.

My free-flowing, living in the moment, no plans kind of life worked GREAT for me, and I LOVED it. Total freedom.  I completely LET GO of my type-A, your day is measured by how much you get done, type of approach.  I found the BLISS of surrendering to spontaneity and complete lack of structure.

But since we left on tour things have changed. This weekend I had to re-group. I had to face the fact that I felt overwhelmed and I needed a new way to approach my new life.

Everything that I had posted on my dream board in August of 2014 is now materializing before my eyes.

My dreams have literally become reality:

1) I’m touring the world with my amazing husband. We now live in a Sprinter van that Vince converted into a cozy home for us, and we get to travel around the U.S. and Canada fully ENJOYING our life-long dream of living nomadically.

2) My book Bliss Beyond Belief is inspiring people around the world.

3) I founded the online School for Dreamers – I have 7 insanely amazing students in my first course, and lives are CHANGING!  I get to record a 45-minute inspirational lecture video while sitting in my van every week, I feel SO ALIVE in my life-changing coaching calls weekly with each student, and I am overjoyed as I see them transforming and growing before my eyes.  I never thought in my WILDEST dreams that this dream would become a reality SO SOON!!!! What is happening to me?!

4) I have 2 music concerts scheduled in Edmonton in May – I get to perform with Leah Pauls!!

5) I am conducting my own FULL DAY “Dreams to Reality” Workshop in Calgary on May 16.  This is HUGE for me!!

6) My YouTube channel has exploded!  I started this tour with 48 subscribers, and today the total is 1300 and rising. (Vince and I were actually asked to be hosts for a tiny home TV show, but we turned it down because we like having total control of it and building our own thing.) It’s so fun to build this channel WITH Vince – I never dreamed he would be such a big part of this, and it’s so fun to see him shine on camera – he’s a natural!

So you can see why I might have felt a little overwhelmed this weekend, as I saw the list of TO DOs start to grow, and felt everything swirling around in my head.

I decided to step outside of it, and to realize that I ASKED FOR ALL OF THIS.

This is what I wanted.

So I simply wrote down in my journal, “How do I embrace everything that has been given to me? These dreams have become a reality, and now I need to learn how to ENJOY all of this – please help me, Spirit.”

And instantly, I knew, that I needed a schedule.  That I needed to organize my life.

And as I began organizing and finding a specific time in my week to write blog posts, to work on my projects, to record the weekly lecture video, etc. etc, instead of feeling dread at the thought of having a structure to my life, I felt JOY and PEACE.

And in that moment, I knew – there is a season for everything. There is a time for every type of activity. A time to rest, and a time to move. A time to be flexible and free-flowing, and a time to have a plan. And I felt this burst of excitement that I have entered a time in my life where I can handle having a plan.

Because unlike my previous life in the corporate world of planned activities, of obligations that made me ill, NOW my plans are for doing everything that I LOVE.

My day is planned, but it’s filled with everything I love to do – write, speak, sing, inspire, encourage, teach, lead, and LOVE.

THIS is a plan I can embrace. And I can hold it loosely.

And I can let it all soak in.

My dreams are becoming reality.

And I’m READY.  Let’s DO this!
