BECOMING THE WEALTHY ARTIST

These are the laws of becoming the wealthy artist, the way I see them and understand them and have been shown them.

Take them or leave them, it’s up to you, but if you leave them then know that a) you’re probably not a true artist, and b) you’re certainly not likely to ever become a wealthy one.

It’s just how it is, you’ll see.

Shall we begin?

The first thing is that you can never ever ever try to do your art in order to get paid. You can’t make money from your art, even though of COURSE you will make money as a result of your art. Contradictions are part of business and life, no need to be frustrated by it 

Whether or not you unleash your art daily (and if you don’t then yeah … nah, #notanartist; let’s also remember that unleashing of what’s within is not only represented by the words, the music, the stroke of a brush, it is a way of BEING), or less or more often, regardless, the second you are doing it with an end in mind and that end is money or indeed anything not just LETTING WHAT’S IN ME OUT, you have sold out and you will NOT be paid.

Followed.
Or famed.

Worse still of course is that you won’t be happy, for how can the artist who stuffs down his truth in order to pander to his idea of the hungry demands of the gaping masses ever be CONTENT –

As he goes to bed at night,
And rests his weary yet not purposefully SPENT soul,
Knowing –

Once again I did what I hoped would work, so they would listen, and follow, and BUY, and I’d be safe, and accepted, and FREE, and no no no no NO it’s not supposed to FEEL like this and meanwhile WHY DO I STILL NOT HAVE MONEY?

So.

That’s the first thing.

It may really be the only thing, actually…

You do what you do because you must DO it, and you do it for its own sake and NEVER for outcome, but purely because you can’t NOT … (can you?) … but yes, sure, let’s, lay down some more truths.

Art first.

ALWAYS, art first.

Any thing relevant to the progression of business or life or your day which you think needs to come ahead of the art is very likely a lie, a seduction, from OUTSIDE of you, to pull you off path or indeed never allow you on.

I’m not talking of the routines, or rituals, the swaying, the connecting in, which you purposefully choose into in order to ACCESS the deep unconscious, your own subconscious, the collective, the truth, the place from which the art flows.

I’m talking about when you tell yourself you have to first just do this and that.

Or, that you can’t because nothing is coming through you.

Or, that you won’t because what is coming through you feels silly, and apropros of nothing, and you won’t you won’t you won’t, just watch me!

These are the times to do it anyway.

Every time.

Or no, you’re not an artist and you HELL no ain’t gonna be a wealthy one.

Speaking of the not doing art for money thing but then again of course great wealth, and the ability to leave a tremendous impact, can and indeed WILL (*) come about as a result of, well, doing art, speaking of THAT –

(a side ramble,
as I paused my writing just now to go to the bathroom, having tried to ignore the need the entire first part
I sat there, and I thought – 
sometimes I really HATE that I am this person, who can’t not
the art comes out of me so many days with an anxious need attached to it … I have to do this, I have no choice, but OH, how I want to run for it at times, or have it just be over, to unleash these words – it feels so often like a race to get it done to have the release while simultaneously it is the GREATEST
of all things I live for
and I wonder…
what would life be like to not have a need like this, a drive like this, one which you simultaneously see as life itSELF while also wishing it would just leave you TF alone for a second, and also – 
so what,
back to the words)

*It’s simply – the doing of the art NEVER for money, not even a little, or indeed any other outcome – about purity, isn’t it?

What comes from you is either pure, it is the message, it IS the art, it is what you’ve been shown and commanded and guided to and in doing it your soul can BREATHE again and everything is RIGHT, OR –

It’s something you tried to craft, and manufacture, for a purpose.

If I do this people will like me.
Like that and they will follow me.
This way for them to pay me.

NO NO NO NO NO! That is not art, and never can be, no matter how close of a representation of, well – (face of disgust) – SOMETHING it may be.

This,

You already no.

And if you think it’s a means to an end then allow me to remind you that the ONLY means and the only END can ever be I DID WHAT I CAME HERE TO DO.

So yes…

There’s that!

Here is something else:

The money, this is a separate thing together. We’ve spoken of this before … if not you and I directly, then perhaps you’ve ready my previous work on separating art form money, or perhaps, of course, it was just in another place,

another time,

a land,

far far away.

But either way – !

OH we have spoken of it.

Money comes when you believe it to and expect for it to and assume that it DOES and when you are the person who has it. When you BECOME who it can’t NOT be around.

STOP TRYING TO DO ART FOR MONEY!

You make a mockery of your art and a WRETCHED FOOL of you.

Wretched wretched wretched!

(and also,
just quietly,
the attempting of doing this,
is why you imbibe,
or self-destroy,
and avoid,
in the way you do
so…
there)

You ask for the money and you intend for the money and you ALIGN to the money and THAT is where the money comes from and your only job your ONLY job – !

(ever ever EVER!)

IS TO DO THE DAMN WORK YOU WERE SENT HERE TO DO

Reminder from soul:

I receive the things because I decide on the things and that decision is based on alignment and what I believe is meant for me and so I CHOOSE, and then I simply BECOME –

Via gradual and day by day method of dialing it in –

The me who would HAVE said things, from the inside out –

And meanwhile I BE FULLY ME which is and only ever CAN be,

I do my work.
I do it without demand.
Without expectation.
With full surrender.
And with the knowledge,
That if I am never paid,
Never seen,
Never heard,
Never known,
If I never achieve a single thing because I put words to a page, breath to the air, paint to a canvas, then I achieved EVERYTHING and the ONLY thing which could ever matter which was that I LIVED for my art and also,

Died for it.

The art can only ever be the art when it’s done for its own sake. From that place, yes, you can make millions.

Impact millions.

And even change the world … but it happens when you do it like it’s done, and with ZERO compromise on your truth.

Stop living like you don’t already know this.

And this,

This is what they,
Who want to ‘make money online’
Or be famous all over
Or get paid for their art
Will never understand

And so they live out their days,

Creating creating creating, but always from a misguided and twisted place,

“If I do this then life must give me that!”

No!

If you live for what you are meant to live for,

Then you will find that life already gave you everything, since the very beginning, the whole damn time.

You just didn’t know it was there.

And you bought into a false idea, a LIE, the myth, that in order to access what you were born with access to (ALL abundance and becoming) you have to pay a price.

So you paid the price.

And WHAT A PRICE IT WAS.

The price of your soul.

Now not only do you not have the things because THAT IS NOT HOW THEY CAN BE GOT,

But you’re also not the thing.

Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.

And we never even saw who you were.

So there you go,

Like I said –

Take it or leave it, but just don’t forget –

 

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.
