The Problem With Easy Money, All-You-Can-Eat-Diets, and Effortless Self-Evolution…

An awful lot of coaching (and marketing!) focuses on instant gratification and easy one-time solutions to chronic problems. Good luck with that.

There’s easy as in aligned flow. And then there’s easy as in blind-denial-that-causes-problems-later. Go for the good life: put your effort into growing the flow, not looking for the instant easy.

Have you heard promises like these?

  • How To Make Six Figures Practically Overnight
  • The All-You-Can-Eat Comfort Foods Diet
  • 6-pack Abs in 4 Minutes
  • Inner Peace is on Special, This Saturday Only

So what’s the problem? We all like the idea of fast, easy, and simple, right?

I know I do. And I am successful largely because I am always looking for where the flow is, where the alignment of my actions and my core longings and creations are most powerful.

Taking disciplined action, finding clear inspiration, and softening into scary vulnerability DOES feel easy from an aligned space.

The ease of aligned flow creates the good life. It integrates and expands. It transforms with patience. It builds you up. We all should celebrate that kind of easy — it’s an emminently worthy goal.

But, frankly, most people aren’t regularly engaged in that kind of easy. Instead, they’re engaged a type of easy that is completely focused on fulfilling surface wants and feeding cycles of denial and resistance.

Core Alignment + Action = Flow

Surface Alignment + Instant Gratification = Stuck

May appear as hard or effortless, depending on your alignment Always appears as easy and quick, always about right now.
Quickly strengthens patterns you love Continues patterns you no longer want
Builds solid, integrated success Keeps you from achieving your goals
Feeds feelings of success and connection Feeds negative self-talk
Supports creation of what you really want Supports things staying the same
Sustainable pleasure Negative pleasure
Raises your energetic vibration Lowers your energetic vibration

Let’s look at two examples:

1. It can seem easier to eat meals out rather than to plan, shop, and cook…but only as long as:

  • I don’t research the ingredients of my restaurant meal
  • I promise myself I’ll eat better tomorrow
  • I figure everyone has metabolic syndrome (overweight, pre-diabetic, chronic inflammation, etc) so this is normal and is fine
  • I don’t add up my food costs
  • I don’t include my future medical costs

2. It can seem easier to distract (with movies or a book; by indulging in my negativity; or by comparing myself with others) than to connect in, meditate, or take a walk… but only as long as:

  • I don’t mind being depressed
  • I don’t think about what could be possible for me with higher vibrations in my field
  • I stay in denial about my value in the world and the power of my attitude and energy
  • I ignore how my lower energy affects my choices, my loved ones, and my health
  • I forget what clear inspiration feels like
  • I keep rationalizing that I deserve “this” kind of easy
  • I find ways to put down people who make it “good”…

I promise you, if it’s important to you, there’s time for it.

If you consistently won’t make time for it, the best thing you can do for yourself is to stop the cycle of claiming it’s important to you.

If you consistently aren’t making time for something you feel is important to you, the problem isn’t that you have 12 hours and everyone else has 24. The problem is energetic — in your energy field.

When you PRACTICE doing what’s easiest in the moment rather than what moves you towards what you want, you are practicing the very thing you don’t want: failing.

Harsh but true.

You’re smart — you can see the pattern and feel the failure, so what often happens next is you beat yourself up about it. Which is so exhausting and depressing, you really do need a break and you really don’t have enough high-level energy in your field to take inspired, aligned action.

After a while, you don’t even have enough of the higher-vibration energy in your field to remember how incredibly fantastic taking inspired, aligned action feels.

You begin to settle for living at the lower vibration. You sacrifice more than you can imagine.

Let that swirl of icky go. Just put it aside. Really — it’s eating up your life force, and who needs that?! Begin questioning what you really want. Once you know – go for it!
