Metaphysical Marketing Workshop
Ol' Book-a-Castle Trick
In a past discussion on
another network, someone asked: If our thoughts had that
much power, then why would we need to work at our business so hard? We
could just create a mind thought to make people buy from us.
And here was my
But you see, that is exactly the point! And that is exactly what I do
and what I teach others to do. You would probably agree that 99% of the
population is working "hard" and not succeeding. There is an easier
way...the real path to success.
You can use the power of your mind (which connects you to the creative
forces of the Universe) and people will "buy from you," so to speak.
I would like to share a personal example of this from my
corporate business a few of years ago...
One of the bookings for my corporate client, Campbell (Soup),
was not going to happen, as of that date. Campbell had come to me
(truly out of the blue) a couple of years before and I had booked every
promotion up to that time...this was #6 and we were at an impasse.
It had to do with the
timing of the promotion - the date could not be moved up to accommodate
the only week that the castle in England was available for us to book
for the fulfillment date of the promotion. And I knew that this castle
was the only one that was so perfect for this promotion.
After a couple of weeks in which the client attempted to change the
promotion date - pow wows with their marketing department, ad agency,
etc. - they told me it was determined that it could not be changed. End
of discussion. These were multi-million dollar promotions and planning
could not be changed at the drop of a hat. I had negotiated the price
for the castle to perfectly accommodate them, but the available rental
date just wouldn't work with their schedule. They said I would have to
find another location.
Okay...back to those creative forces. The quantum field. The Universe.
The field of all possibilities. I don't care what you call it. I just
know I can depend on it to come through. End of discussion. :-) Hey,
I've been practicing for decades and after having it work over and over
again, you just finally "get it". A request like this is elementary for
So, I had a chat with the Universe. And the Universe told me to do
exactly what I would teach my students to do. Of course. I should have
thought of that :-)
technique might I teach a student to do in this situation? Got it!
I got on the computer and prepared the contracts (for Cambell, there
were three contracts for each booking - two of them had to be done at
the beginning along with the invoice for the deposit). Well, I
completed the contracts and prepared them for signature by me, Eastnor
Castle in England and my client, Campbell. I went to sleep. My job was
done. It was time for the Universe to take over.
The next morning (my client was three hours ahead of my time zone) I
received a phone message and also found an email from my contact at the
client's marketing company. He said that the client that morning
suddenly and inexplicably decided to go with the English castle after
all and was changing the promotion date to start in February instead of
May! The "impossible" happened. My trust in the power of the Universe
was greater than the power of a billion dollar corporation!
So please don't tell me about how hard we have to work. When I stopped
working hard at my business, THAT's when it all starting flowing to me
easily. The "hardest" thing is to release the belief that you have to
work so hard, which is the very thing that keeps you from your success.
I explain the reasons for this in my teachings. There is a little-known
law called The Law of
Reversed Effort, which explains that the harder you try to
do something, the less chance you have of achieving it.
Now of course I am not suggesting that we take no action. What I AM
suggesting is that we take "inspired" action based on our intuitive
guidance from the Universe instead of working hard.
And by the way, I ask students in my program to think about their core
belief about money and prosperity - so I can then have them recognize
it for the lie that it is. Do you know what one of the most common
responses is? It's that they have to work "hard" and "struggle" to make
Recognize that for the lie that it is. Nurture your connection to your
higher wisdom, your trust in universal guidance.
You wouldn't believe what else I have in my complete bag of tricks. :-)
