Do you feel like you’ve hit an income ceiling and you have to work really hard to earn more money? Today on Financial Fluency, I’m excited to have my guest Michelle Lowbridge with us. Michelle is the author of Wealthology: The Science of Smashing Money Blocks and a teacher on unlocking the human potential. She helps people identify and understand why they’re not reaching their full potential.
In this episode, Michelle talks about how she built her business and saw success within 48 hours. She started her journey when she was pregnant with her son. At the time, Michelle wasn’t making much money at her brick-and-mortar kinesiology practice, and decided it was time to close the shop so she could take a year off after her baby, Jackson was born. She knew she wanted to have an online business, but didn’t quite know what that meant. Michelle’s first attempt was with her first course “Happiness for Mums.” The course focused on mindset manifestations and opening yourself up to opportunities. She recalls nothing happened. In fact, she got two sales from her friends and that was it.
After taking some time to discover what her own underlying “upper limit problem” was, Michelle pinpointed the story she was creating in her head. This story was causing the money blocks and prevented her from unlocking her full potential. After completing her mindset exercises, Michelle remembers feeling better within the first 24 hours. With her newfound energy, Michelle posted in the Lucky Bitch Facebook group if anyone wanted to practice the exercises with her. To her surprise, there was an influx of people ready to sign up. Today, she has 31 practitioners.
By 2016 Michelle had built a successful business model. People were flying from all over the world to train with her, she had a bestselling book, and was running a high-level mentorship. After the high of doing a two-day training, she found herself inexplicably low. Despite having recently moved her family into their dream home, everything suddenly felt impossibly hard.
One of Michelle’s key skills is understanding why people don’t achieve their full potential, and knowing exactly what to do about it. It was time to put herself under the microscope. Over the next few months, she realised there were Seven Laws, which, when put into practice, allow you to maintain a healthy trajectory in the direction you want to go, and make agile decisions an everyday reality.
Now she’s bringing her knowledge to CEOs who are trying to do the right thing by their customers, employees, and investors – and consequently don’t sleep much, and probably won’t relax for the next few decades. Michelle knows first-hand how much stress impacts decision-making, which damages company profits, and puts your entire operation at risk.
Michelle notes if you change your energy system, you can change your subconscious. But sometimes, money blocks are not always about money. When you’re struggling to get through the week, here are a few of Michelle’s tips to help you pause, reflect, and realign your energy.
Michelle’s Advice on Editing Your Energy
- Acknowledge that it’s hard. That’s the first step.
- Know that it doesn’t have to be hard. Your subconscious immediately defaults to the story because that’s how your mind keeps you “safe.”
- Allow for the possibility that it can be easier. What’s the story around the reward for it being hard?
- Create the space of possibility.
- Start with 10 minutes of non-negotiable “you” time every day. Lie down flat, put your phone on airplane mode, close your eyes and be silent. Set a timer for 10 minutes.
- Calm will come over you, and it will make you more productive, and the harassed energy will be released. When you lie flat, your energy layers realign to help your body process your energy better.
Michelle says you need to start by thinking about your attachment to things being difficult. What are the negative things that will happen if it wasn’t hard? If things were all of a sudden easy, what would that mean to you? She notes the thing you most want to be doing is where you’ll feel the most resistance.
