In this episode, Kari Samuels links Numerology to personal and business success. What is it, and how can we use it in our businesses?
Kari explains how using numbers can help make decisions, discover optimal times when events should be happening or not happening, as well as revealing much about you as an individual.
She says everything boils down to numbers. A place on a map, numbers assigned at birth, date of birth, and your name are all calculated by numbers.
“Basically our whole life is a number.”
She says that people are divinely designed to come to life to incarnate during a certain day, period with a certain name because that’s the vibration that carries the spiritual lessons for that person.
When linking Numerology to business, Kari says knowing this information will help you become more successful and more aware of what is going on around you. As an example, Kari talks about the moon and how certain times of the moons cycle is better to make new business decisions in. As well, another part of the cycle is for making revisions.
“This is a science, a science that has been used for thousands and thousands of years; there is a reason it hasn’t gone away.”
Kari touches on energy, and how energy guides us and how people can feel energy from each other. She makes her business decisions with a positive energy, so she can really reach out and touch her clients.
“I truly feel people respond to energy more than information.”
She tells others to not look at their lives as a series of goals but rather to look at life as look at as energy.
“To me everything is energy, and that’s how I look at it.”
She concludes with reminding listeners that you’re cultivating the energy of your future, with every action you’re doing now.
Karen Carter is a professional Feng Shui consultant and healthy lifestyle designer, educator and best-selling author of "Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life" and "Make a Shift, Change Your Life." She coaches, trains and empowers people to use a variety of techniques to improve and enrich all areas of their lives. In this episode, we find out if moving things on your desk, in your home and in your office can really change your life!
Karen shares that Feng Shui is a method of mindfully arranging your space so that it supports you.
She says that she was originally a skeptic, but needed to learn Feng Shui to get a project as a landscape architect.
Quantum physics plays a part in it, as everything is energy. Karen adds that Feng Shui deals with all the things you might never think of that could be detrimental to you, as well as minor things.
“Little, tiny and subtle things can make a big difference”
She started applying Feng Shui to her house, and soon after a major publisher contacted her to write a book that she hadn’t even pitched.
She feels that you should start by looking at changes that can be made in your home, as you spend a lot of time there. Karen focuses on her bed, as it’s a health generating area of the home.
With Feng Shui, it’s about setting your intention, your goals and what you want to do.
“I’m not really that interested in fixing a house as much as I am changing the outcome of somebody’s life”
If you have a business, you need to look at the biggest challenges you are facing, and get very specific with tracking. For example, it could be revenue generation, before and after Feng Shui is implemented.
A few suggestions she has for business owners is to make the front door inviting, easy to see and ensure it opens freely. A fresh and clean welcome mat will provide “inviting energy.”
Karen says that her rule is that whatever is closest to you will have the most impact, and she advises that you clear out the things that don’t support you anymore.
“If you are to truly propel yourself forward, cut the ties of the past that doesn’t serve you”
She believes that a lot of interior designers resist learning about Feng Shui as they feel it will be limiting to them.
Displaying your credentials (certificates, diplomas, etc.), getting a permanent work space as well as putting a plant in the prosperity area of your desk are just some suggestions she has.
Karen shares that you can always learn more to master Feng Shui.
“You have to know the basic rules, then apply”
When launching a product, trust in the universe and have something to anchor you against the anxiety, stress and energy (see Karen’s YouTube video in “INTERVIEW LINKS”).
She believes in “planning the party”, or celebrating something that hasn’t happened yet.
Karen concludes by reminding people to be mindful of where you want to go, and who you are.
“Look around; see what you’re surrounding yourself with”
Kate Northrup is the best selling author of “Money, a Love Story: Untangle Your Financial Woes and Create the Life You Really Want.” She’s grown a team of 3,000 wellness entrepreneurs in the network marketing industry and her work has been featured on The Today Show, Yahoo Finance, Huffington Post and in many other amazing publications. She is committed to empowering as many people as possible to have the ultimate luxury in life. In this episode, she shares all about creating that “margin for magic” in your business!
Kate grew up with spirituality and The Law of Attraction being a big part of her life, thanks in most part to her mother.
“It’s like people who grew up with sports. I grew up with believing in energy.”
Her husband, Mike, had a conventional upbringing, but has embraced the philosophies as well, starting with meditation. Not only does it have a positive effect on their personal life, but Kate says it also does the same for their business.
Certain aspects, such as gratitude for the present moment and anticipation for the next, are automatic for her. However, she feels there are things in her life that she still needs to work on.
“In order to be walking a different direction than everybody else, you have to keep reminding yourself"
To Kate, gratitude is a physical experience, and she has to feel it in her body to know there’s been a shift.
She doesn’t like to orchestrate the “how” when she has a particular goal in mind. She says that when she has an ambitious goal with her husband, they leave a certain “margin for magic” to happen.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m excited to see what it is that’s going to bring us there”
One example of such magic is her being a top affiliate on a number of other peoples’ launches when first starting out, despite having a relatively small email list.
She and Mike doe a number of things when preparing for a product launch:
1) Diving Love Healing Meditation – this practice will release what’s blocking you from getting what you desire in terms of health, abundance, etc. For more information, see “INTERVIEW LINKS.”
2) Take action – Kate recommends doing yoga, going surfing or something you enjoy to give your mind a break. This can open your channels for other possibilities, as sometimes your brain just needs a break to come up with a creative solution.
3) Visualization – Just before, or when their cart opens for a launch, Kate and Mike will light candles and focus on the value that they’re bringing to others. She says the reason she does what she does is because she has so much fun helping people.
4) Repeat a Mantra – For one launch with a price point of $197, Mike repeated the “197” with each step he took during his walk to and from work, to help attract the desired results.
5) Getting Physical – Kate says sex is a powerful energy, and having it with the intention of spreading that energy into the cosmos will assist with a product launch. Doing things that are physical, including sex and dancing, will help get you in touch with your body. She says this is important, as often the mind can be limiting and the best solutions can often be found by feeling.
6) Be Aware of Astrology – Planning the launch around the appropriate time in terms of astrology can be helpful. Certain times are known for having issues, such as with technology and communication.
Kate reminds us that tools such as Feng Shui, meditation, visualization and vision boards are simply accessories to keep our vibrations where we want them to be.
She is excited to share the wisdom she has learned with her own daughter. She wants her to know that she is a powerful source with the ability to create many things. Hard work, hustle and suffering are not necessarily prerequisites for success.
In this bonus episode of the podcast, James and Phoebe answer a listener’s question and share how they each made their first dollar on the Internet.
Phoebe began two years ago when someone asked for help with promoting her MLM business. This led to her reaching out to James (who hired her on the spot!) and her releasing her own courses in Canva and Facebook ads.
James tells his story, leading up to April 18th, 2008. This was the day he made his first sale with his online bartending program. He recommends you do what you love, what you’re good at, and what will make you money.
