Coaching Call #112 is out! The topic of this week’s call is: Her Abandonment and Self-Worth Issues are Impacting her Relationships.
This client, like so many of us, felt unworthy due to an abandonment issue. These BIG topics can feel scary and insurmountable, which is why people often stop after identifying them and never shift them. We broke down the emotions and paved the way for moving into self-love and worthiness, without having to dig extensively into her past and finding the “cause”.
We used the example of the caller’s relationships as a basis to connect with the energy, but self-worth affects every aspect of our lives, so the topic we chose was really largely irrelevant. As part of the process, however, we also touched on how to deal with manipulative friends and family, setting boundaries without being petty, dealing with parental abandonment, and communication in relationships. Enjoy!
Hellooooooo my puppies!!!
First off, for those of you who are all like “Where the hell is the life changing, tell me how the freaking Universe works, content at?” rest assured, we shall return to our regularly scheduled programming on Thursday. But I’ve got shit to tell you and there is just no way I can keep this to myself. Asking me to do so is cruel. And you don’t want to be cruel, do you? Do you?
Some of the changes I’m about to announce have been in the works for a while. Some of them I just decided this past week, while making some time to actually step back and have a good think about things. Some are borne of necessity (I got a little overwhelmed again and have to set a few limits), and some are about taking the business WAY further. So, for those of you who care about the development of Deliberate Receiving and its message and enjoy watching it flourish toward world domination (Happy Shiny Puppies Everywhere!!), you should love this.
For those who don’t, maybe because you just found this blog and haven’t had enough time to develop the pure, unadulterated and sometimes even titillating love for our awesome little community, well, hang in there. You’ll feel the warm gooey smooshiness enveloping you like a baby swaddled in its special blankie soon enough.
Deliberate Receiving Live – NYC Update!
Dear New Yorkers and those living in the area and those willing to travel to NYC just to come and see me (you are all wonderful, wonderful people. And no, I’m not just kissing your collective ass so that you’ll come to my event, seeing as without you it will be much less awesome.) We have set a date and found a venue! Now, I haven’t signed all the paperwork yet, so some details aren’t ready to be disclosed, but I promised to keep you up to date on all the latest news and that’s what I’m doing.
I shall come to the Big Apple on November 9th. Yes, that’s a Sunday (the Universe picked it. So, if you want to complain, direct all your criticism there. I’m just along for the ride…). Instead of some airport Holiday Inn or boring hall or whatever people are using for seminars these days, I decided it would be oh so much cooler to have the whole shebang in a theater in Chelsea. Because that’s apparently where all the cool people hang out.
The event will last from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a break for lunch, cookie breaks and potty breaks. Yes, the cookies and the potties will be separate. I know you were about to ask. If you want to mingle with other attendees, you can do so during the breaks, or from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. (we’re opening registration early for this very purpose.)
I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this. With the venue booked (and yes, it was a total manifestation. It just showed up. I had to do nothing), there’s no turning back. This is really happening. Yay!
Oh, and content wise, those attending will be the FIRST to be exposed to the new Deliberate Receiving System (yes, I’ll be coming up with a better name for it than that…), which I’ll tell you about in a second. There will be a structured seminar, as well as a generous Q&A period that will allow you to ask whatever questions you want, to help you apply the information to your own lives. Because if you can’t do that, then you may leave all pumped up at the end of the day, but ultimately not better off. So, applicable it will be (some ass kicking may be involved).
More updates to come soon, but for now, you can save the date!
The new Programs: Finally, some structure!
Ok, so I’ve been blogging for a few years now, happily answering your questions and explaining the core concepts of how to use the Law of Attraction to receive the reality you actually want. I’ve also been coaching my little heart out, gathering hundreds of case studies and refining the tools I teach about. Because, again, if you can’t actually use any of this shit, what good is it?
With the book coming out next year, I’ve been working on putting all that I know (or at least as much as will fit in a book) into some kind of structure. This has always been what’s missing from the blog. Sure, you can read through the almost 500 article length blog posts and gather huge amounts of knowledge, but there’s no step by step methodology there. The posts are not exactly in order, in terms of taking you through the process. Alas, no matter how awesome, a blog can only do so much. So, that’s what the book will do – it will break things down step by step and lead you through the Universe’s innate process from start to finish. And yes, there will be case studies, because, again, applicable.
However, there’s only so much a book can do, as well. I can’t compress EVERYTHING into 70,000 words. And so, I will also be creating my first signature product (the “system” I wrote about above. Suggestions for much cooler names are welcome). This will be an online course, 6-8 weeks, in which I’ll take a group of people through a life changing process from start to finish. Now we’re talking. I will also be including a forum, a safe place where you can all hang out and meet each other (one of the most prevalent complaints I hear from people is that they wish they knew more people they could talk to about this stuff…)
It’s been clear to me for some time that I have to do something like this. I do my best to offer coaching to all who want it, but it’s become nearly impossible to do so. There are only so many people I can reach this way, and I want to reach more. A whole lot more. So, for those of you who have been frustrated by my constant waiting list, or for those for whom private coaching is just a teensy bit too intense, a solution is coming. Soon. Weeeeeee!
Now, as I’m working out all the details, it’s becoming clear that the Universe has always known this would happen. It seems that a structure, a framework has been assembling itself over the last several years. This realization kind of blew my mind, and I fully expect its impact to be absolutely epic. Finally, the Universe will make some freaking sense, and it shall be offered up in an easy to digest, entertaining, no-BS, you’d better wear your seatbelt for this format. Like being slapped with enlightenment. Ha.
“But Melody,” you may be asking, “will you really be able to allow all this awesomeness to come through you all in the space of six months (less actually)?”
Well yes, but we’re going to make a little change…
The Blogging schedule is changing
Whilst lounging about in the spa last week, I realized why I’d gotten a bit overwhelmed. It’s time to let something go, something I’ve been VERY reluctant to give up. You see, my puppies, I love to write. I love to answer your questions. I love to share as much information with you as humanly possible. And I have A LOT to say. When I started blogging, I posted three times a week. Taking that down to twice a week was difficult for me, but it had to be done. I was simply getting too busy. Now, in order to provide a structure that will help a lot more people than I’m currently able to, I’ll have to take my blogging schedule down to once a week. I shall henceforth only be posting LOA content on Thursdays.
There are, however, a couple of parameters I’ve included to keep myself and hopefully you, happy:
- If I want to announce an update, such as this post today, I will do so on another day (probably Monday), so that you will be guaranteed to get a content post once a week. Publishing less content than that just doesn’t feel right to me.
- I realize that many of you wait for the announcement of the Pre-recorded coaching calls on Monday. I will announce them on Thursday’s blog post. But, fear not. If you want to know earlier, I have created a special mailing list you can sign up for, which will inform you on SUNDAY (the day the calls actually come out, so that’s even better than before!) which call is ready for your perusal. You can sign up for that list here.
Note: this is a special mailing list for this purpose only. If you want to be notified of blog posts and updates and stuff, you have to sign up for the main list HERE.
I realize that even with these precautions that some of you will miss that extra post. I apologize for that, but this is something I really feel will help me stay sane. I don’t want to just “survive” the second half of this year. I want to enjoy the shit out of it. All my dreams are coming true. I refuse to experience that in a state of overwhelm and frustration. And, I wouldn’t be much of a teacher if I did, would I?
All of this will, however, allow me to dedicate more time to ultimately providing value to more people, which has been my goal all along. And boy, do we have some great shit coming your way (I can’t give it all way today…)
A big smooshy Thank You!
At this point it seems appropriate to thank each and every one of you who reads this blog and participates physically or energetically in this community. None of these changes would be happening if Deliberate Receiving, which started off as a weird and funny little blog, hadn’t grown into a successful business, supported by a team of people (oh yeah, more updates on that soon, too!). I love reading your comments and watching how you help each other. I often tear up when I see the support that you offer each other in the comment section.
This place would be nothing without you, and I can’t thank you all enough. It truly is a co-creation. I’m not just selflessly offering up information and energy here, I get just as much back as I give.
Now, it’s your turn. Let me know what you think. If you think I missed something, let me know. If the new changes bother you, don’t be shy (just be nice). And if you have any suggestions or requests, by all means, share them. Because we’re all in this together and I love hearing from you.
Sending you all the smooshiest of happy shiny puppy hugs!
