I have been feeling frustrated.

I have been following my heart, and doing the work I love.

But none of the things I do make enough money to live on!  So I asked for some advice on doing the work you love but ALSO making  money!

Me

I know a lot of people who are also doing work they love and not making money.  And a lot of people who are doing work they hate just to pay the mortgage.  People who teach spiritual stuff always say that you only have to follow your heart and do the work you love and the Universe will support you.  But it doesn’t seem to be working!

What is going on?  What is going wrong?  I have been doing these things for quite a while, and people always say they like what I do.  But it just doesn’t pay.   Even Speaking Suppers, which is popular does not make any money worth speaking about!  Help!  I don’t want to go back to doing work just to make money.  I want to do work I love!

Greetings!  We hear and appreciate your question and we sense your frustration and anxiety and also your confusion.  We understand that you have been given to understand that when you do the work you love, everything will magically fall into place and you will be supported.  And this is true.  You will be supported and you are being supported.  What is happening is that you are simply uncovering and moving through such obstacles as remain in the way of your total faith in yourself and your own power to create.

Might we ask a question?

Me

You might.

A

At this point, do you believe that there is some kind of hold up, some sort of obstacle standing between you and the life that you wish to create for yourself?

Me

You could say that again!  Yes, there is something.  I don’t know exactly what it is.  But this is not where I would ideally like to be, in my life.

A

Might we ask another question?

Me

I suppose so.

A

We would ask that you would consider this question very carefully, before answering it.  It is not in any way intended to offend!

Me

Okay.  Ask.

A

Are you entirely sure that you wish to be earning enough money from your various endeavours to feed yourself, pay your rent and otherwise provide your source of income?

Me

Of course.  Why would I not want that?

A

While you are not earning a lot of money from your work, who provides the money that you live on?

Me

Shane does.  You know that.

A

And what are the advantages for you, of having Shane provide the money or most of it?

Me

Well, I suppose I don’t have to work if I don’t want to.  I can choose to do the work I like, rather than the work that is annoying and humiliating and pointless.  I am safe to experiment with the fun stuff.  And it doesn’t matter if it is not successful, because Shane will pay the rent and buy the food and stuff.

A

What is your true belief about what would happen if Shane were to stop paying the rent and providing financial support?

Me

My true belief?  That is a nasty question!  I don’t know what my true belief is.  But I suspect that I am not convinced that things would work out the way I want them to!  In fact I would bet a lot of money on things not working out the way I want them to!   Why is that?  Why am I so convinced things wont work out?  Can you help me to change my belief?

To Be Continued!
