How to Get the Money Flowing.


*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!

Everyone that comes to me for a jyotish session wants to know one of three things:

What is my life purpose? How can I make more money? What can I do about my relationship issues?

The hardest part of my job as a jyotish coach is not giving advise or looking at someone’s chart and seeing what the challenges are for a person’s life. I look at the karmic map, there are struggles, the issues and challenges staring at me.

Finding what isn’t working, is not the hard part.

As a jyotishi, the challenge I face consistently is giving resources, tools and embodiment guidance, but instead watching the client choose not to take these vital action steps. Watching a client refuse to take action in order to move through their weaknesses and obstacles is admittedly hard for me!

Especially since I know that some very different approaches are needed in their life, in order for their desires to actually manifest.

This requires my deepest surrender and detachment.

It’s true, many people just want to be told what to do and they want some magic pill to take care of it for them. They want a quick fix. A mantra, or yagya (which can often be valuable no doubt.) Or they want to know that their problems will just go away once Saturn isn’t transiting over their Moon etc. Many clients hope that their “soul mate” will magically appear once a relationship transit arrives.

Realistically, it really isn’t that simple.

We get what we are ready for. What we are prepared for. What we have created space for.

Money, love and creativity are all ruled by Venus—and rightfully so. These three powerful factors in our lives can bring joy or misery, abundance or little more than a drop.

Money, love and creativity are all determined by our ability to give and receive, or quite literally, the amount of flow and fluidity we are working with—the fluidity we are able to use and able to harness.

This is why Venus is also connected to water, the most vital live-giving resource for us. Without water in the physical body, we have death. Death is lack of life of course, so the more vitality and life-giving forces we invite into our beings, the more life, fluidity and flow we experience as a result.

The pelvis (and organs therein) as well as the second chakra, are the physical containers of money, love and creativity. If we are feeling a lack in any one of these areas, we need to address the physical issues connected to them as well. But the first chakra, and the body parts included in the first chakra (every thing from the pubic bone down to the feet) is perhaps the most vital part of the manifestation process.

My favorite money quote is: Money wants clarity, purpose and flow! These are the domains of the first and second chakras!

Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t through thinking your desires that they become manifest. And contrary to popular belief it isn’t through your meditation practice, your affirmations, your positive thinking or anything else that is a part of your mental body process, that will actually help you materialize the intangible into the tangible.

If you want to bring your desires into the material, you have to work with the first and second chakras (the lower, base, chakras) which are intimately connected with the material world. These chakras are all about being here right now, in a physical form.

Our body, our grounding, our actual physical connection to our life, is the realm of the first chakra.

If you aren’t in your body, embodied, you can not and will not, be able to get your ideas and visions to manifest into the material world.

We quite literally manifest through our body!

This reality is reiterated through the story of lord Brahma creating the universe from his navel. He reminds us that we have the ability to create our lives—which is why he and his consort Saraswati rule over creativity and the power of the arts. They remind us that it is our creativity that is literally our most potent source of knowledge and wisdom for this existence.

Want more money, love and creativity? Get into your body wisdom and your emotional body wisdom.

Manifestation happens when we are intimately connected with our feeling level, our felt senses, the emotional body wisdom and the intuition. This is why I am so passionate about a body-centered approach to therapy, one that uses somatic wisdom, while also drawing upon the expressive arts as a resource for intimate exploration and harnessing our innate, creative wisdom.

It is also why I start my clients off with embodiment step number one, the three level check in.

We must get more embodied if we want our dreams to manifest.

We must work with the body wisdom and our intuitive knowing in order to create from our most primal sense of self. This is where we tap into our innate creativity. Creativity is actually a vital ingredient for the money and the love to start flowing. This is the gift of the embodiment resources and the art therapy techniques I work with; they potently activate the creative and physical channels. This stimulates the flow and fluidity of Venus, which we need in our lives in order to be more nourished on an ongoing basis.

Don’t think your desires.

Feel them.

Move them.

Create with them.

Go beyond your imagination.

Gather your desires from your dreams, from your sense of intuitive knowing and move them into existence through your body.

Use your jyotish chart as your map to get you to the wisdom you need to unlock your shadows, disappointments and challenges.

But don’t stop there.

In fact, if you stop at just the “knowing” of what your issues are, you won’t move beyond them or learn to work with them differently. If you really want lasting change, and to create a different life for yourself, you have to take action steps that will literally help you re-create your life from the ground, up. From your feet to your head. From your first chakra and your second chakra!

I’m very passionate about my system, my tools and the synergy of modalities that I use of course! But I’m even more passionate about sharing them with you, and watching you grow, flourish, and thrive as you re-create your life over and over again!

Are you ready for more?

Step into more money, love and creativity—literally.
