Resisting Your Taxes?
Shifting Your Mindset Can Help
It's that time of year again here in the US – time to file your taxes...
Are you an early bird that gets it out of the way? or
Do you wait until the last minute – running to the Post Office or clicking send (if you file electronically) at midnight?
Let’s face it, I don’t know too many individuals or business owners that just love dealing with or paying their taxes, but there may be some underlying reasons why you avoid them or wait until the last minute to deal with them.
Whenever you feel or have emotion about something, you
create a vibration or vibe for it and that vibrational frequency- like a radio
transmitter, draws to you those things that vibrate at the same frequency.
When it comes to your taxes - there may be underlying feelings and emotions that are
stopping you. Here's an example...
Recently I worked with a client that was avoiding making an appointment with her tax preparer. She was also struggling with organizing her tax paperwork. Even though she keeps all of her receipts and can easily tally up her expenses, this year she was in resistance.
I gave her the assignment to
begin to get clear about her thoughts and feelings by writing out her flow of feelings- was she feeling-angry,
sad, afraid, guilty?
As she wrote out her flow of feelings she saw the most prevalent ones were fear and guilt..
Next I asked her to clarify what she wanted to experience at her tax appointment
by contrasting what she didn’t want vs what she did want
After completing this list she focused only on the Do Want list until she went to her tax appointment.
After she met with her tax preparer she made the decision to close out the business because of the limited income over the last few years.
At first she felt sad and as if she was throwing in the towel on her business– but after discussing it with the preparer she realized that when she had started the business years ago she was in direct sales and year by year had drifted away from that as the focus of the business. She realized that somehow this lack of focus had been contributing to the lack of motivation, energy and income she was generating.
She decided to establish her new business based on her current focus and passion and ended up receiving a refund, feeling relieved, honored and respected and was empowered with a renewed energy and confidence about moving forward- everything that was on the Do Want list!
You can do this too!
