Money Mindset

CLEARING DEBT AND ENDLESS MONEY LACK THROUGH SURRENDER

When I was over 100k in debt, money coming in only in what felt like an exhausting hand over fist manner, teenhy-tiny drip by teeny-tiny drip at a time, I fought so damn hard to not be where I was.

I railed against it with EVERY part of me.

I refused to accept it … I KNEW I could get out of it, and that was a good knowledge to have; my faith, no matter how tested it was, DID always remain.

But what I wanted, what I needed, what I was DESPERATE for, was to just.be.there.now.

SAFE, you know?
FREE …
And no longer shrouded and clouded in the shame, the God damn SHAME, that comes with being a grown-ass person and not having your SHIT together, also the EXHAUSTION, of trying to maintain an ‘everything’s dandy’ demeanour to the world around you as well as your own SELF.

If you’ve been there … if you are there … you know how relentless this feels, and how draining.

When I look back on that time now, it feels quite amazing to me that I was able to keep functioning. My energy was SO messed up. I was carrying every possible fear-based or frustration-based emotion there is, and I was carrying it 24/7, too!

Yet somehow, I managed to keep going. One foot in front of the other. Doing, largely, the same things I do in my biz and life NOW, the difference being that now my dominant energy state is flow and ease, and back then it was, well, everything opposite to that!

Wanna know something not-so-funny-at-all.

NOW, all I do each day is some sort of repeat-mix of inner work, messaging, sales activity, and self-care.

Back THEN, all I did each day was some sort of repeat-mix of inner work, messaging, sales activity, and self-care.

NOW, I easily receive, without even ‘trying’, and certainly with no following of a plan or a ‘how’, or even, really, wondering at where the money will COME from, hundreds of thousands of dollars per month, oh, and I work with ONLY soulmate badass clients.

Back THEN, I painstakingly received whatever I managed to eek out, I had clients who were consistently not QUITE aligned, and I spent nearly all day every day worrying in some form about where the next fucking dollar would come from, and whether I’d be able to keep my head above water.

I mean –

When you literally can’t even buy $30 of groceries most days … or a COFFEE some days … when you’ve already SOLD your house, your car, and ANYTHING monetizable … when you’re down to dollars and cents and it just keeps on KEEPING on like that …

Well.

I don’t gotta tell you!

You fucking worry about where the next dollar will come from!

And I gave my ALL to trying to get out of that place, I really did. I clawed FURIOUSLY at the walls of the prison I’d found myself in. I would stay up EVERY night till my eyes burnt out like overused light bulbs, coming up with offers, ideas, putting them out there, watching EVERY sale, scheming and planning about how to hit my numbers, working and re-working which bills I HAD to pay, and which ones I could – always with shame! – get away with ignoring for a bit longer. I would also HIDE the reality of the money situation from my husband, as he would freak the fuck out more than what I could handle, and I instinctively knew that for me to remain strong, and keep going, I had to not allow anybody ELSE’S scarcity vibe to impact me.

I had enough to handle in dealing with my own!

So, I would metaphorically cover my eyes and ears and close myself off to ANY sort of idea that maybe things would just get WORSE, or that I would ACTUALLY bottom out.

See no evil.
Hear no evil.
And shut the fuck UP if you suggest for even a SECOND that one of us should get a JOB. GOD.

I just.
kept.
going.

I remember one week I launched 7 new offers in a 3-day period. SEVEN!! This was across my fitness business, my personal brand, and also my then-husband’s online biz, which I largely engineered and ran myself.

I did what it TOOK.

And I am proud of myself for that … I don’t regret that phase in my journey, and there are many very positive traits which came from all that hustle and push. It built inner strength and resilience like a MOTHERFUCKER. I did what others won’t for YEARS, refusing to back down or back away, knowing that one day I would be able to live like they can’t. I carved myself into an iron warrior of STEEL, in terms of my staying power and ability to just.keep.going, no matter how many times I got knocked back down.

The image I used with this blog? I made that back in this time. That’s why it has my old website url on the bottom  It is still SO meaningful to me. It represented EVERYTHING about how I felt, and what I was committed to. I found it in my Dropbox just now, nearly 6 years old, titled ‘fight to be you’. I was actually looking for the screenshot I saved of my bank account balances being .89c / $2.89 etc each 

These traits serve me to this day, and I wouldn’t change them for the world.

I am disciplined as fuck; the best part being it doesn’t feel remotely like discipline! It’s so inherent to who I AM, to just consistently do the work. So, I get the results of discipline with the vibe of SUPERFLOW.

But anyway, going back to that period, going back to doing what it TOOK –

The one thing I didn’t know, which nobody told me, and I simply didn’t UNDERSTAND, and which I’ve come here today to shake YOU up about, was that because I refused to be with what WAS, I made it impossible to step into what was AVAILABLE, and next.

It’s interesting …

Because one of the critical steps to manifestation, is to ‘be there now’.

Paint the picture of what it will be like when you ARE there, or HAVE it, or ARE it –

Look at the emotions, the energy, the feelings and thoughts, the beliefs, and then also the ACTIONS you’d be taking and the way you’d be showing up, if you WERE already there.

Embody that shit.
Create the environment of it being done AROUND you.
Voila!

It really can be and IS that simple.

But the OTHER bit of that … which definitely can feel confusing, so I understand if it kinda screws with or infuriates you … is to also be totally and absolutely surrendered to and also OKAY with where you are now.

I know, right? Contradiction much! Too bad, life is full of contradictions, that’s just how it is so square up and DEAL with it.

It’s a good thing, actually …

Because learning to be here now, and be FULLY in surrender TO that reality, gives you something that no amount of hustle or even money could EVER provide, and that is PEACE.

When you are in allowance of and surrender to what IS
When you stop fighting
When you let GO, of holding on so damn tight
Not only can you BREATHE again (kinda handy!), but also you allow EXPANSION
From expansion, you switch into abundance
Into receiving
Into SUPERFLOW, even
All of which, I don’t have to tell you, are kinda sorta helpful to making the MONIES, on your terms!

But more importantly than THAT, yes, you find that by CHOOSING surrender and allowance of what is, you give yourself everything you THOUGHT you needed to GET to, that you were holding at arms length away from yourself by thinking you had to get to ‘THERE’ in order to have it!

When you surrender, you realise you are safe already.
When you surrender, you realise you are enough already.
When you surrender, you realise you have FREEDOM already.

And so on.
And so forth.

But how do you SURRENDER, while also ‘being there now’? It makes no sense!

Well –

You just do.

You actively name and claim and step INTO the energy, emotion, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and aligned ACTIONS that you feel would be true if you WERE there –

And you simultaneously choose to be completely fucking whole and okay right here right now.

ACTUALLY, if you think about it, this makes TOTAL sense!

Because if you WERE there now, then you would BE in surrender, and flow, and expansion, and allowance, and you’d feel free, enough, safe, etc!

Right?!

Right 

Look, I more than anybody know that this can FEEL easier said than done.

I held on SO damn tight.

I fought and fought and fought.

I waged WAR internally, and I couldn’t bring myself to be where I WAS, because it felt too SCARY, and bad, and I was ashamed, and frustrated.

But in the end –

Finally –

I saw.

How holding on so tightly was draining me.

How it was keeping me in NON-momentum, disempowered, too.

And how, if I didn’t choose to release into surrender and TRUST, I would continue to get on by –

Painstaking step by painstaking step

Inch by inch

Dollar by dollar

JUST keeping my head above water

That wasn’t what I was born for.

It wasn’t what I KNEW was my destiny.

It wasn’t what I WANTED!

And it was also not reflective of what I knew was available to me.

I never stopped believing I could have it all, on my terms.

I KNEW I was born to make millions, impact millions, change the world.

Eventually…

I just gave in.

“BRING IT ON THEN GOD!”, I said (and I did; aloud!)

“IF I HAVE TO GO TO ROCK BOTTOM FIRST, I WILL, BECAUSE I KNOW I’M GONNA MAKE IT!”

And let’s face it –
I was already LIVING at rock bottom, or so it felt!

And so I let go.

In one moment, which I can remember as though it was yesterday.

I just –

Let go.

I decided to trust.

I decided to allow.

I decided to let FAITH rule me, not fear.

I decided –

To just be the person who was already there.

And now here we are.

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play.

MONETIZE THAT SHIT NO MATTER WHAT

{AND DO WHAT YOU WANT ALL DAY}

A One-Time Live Online Workshop with Katrina Ruth, on How to Make Money Anywhere, Anytime, With ZERO Dependance on Any One Platform, Program or Tool … Aka JUST BECAUSE THAT’S WHO YOU ARE … AND – With the Greatest of Ease

Okay. Imma gonna get straight up on your ass about what needs to be said here, because obviously SOMEBODY needs to hit the damn truth button on this shit!!

Straight up from the gate up, you do NOT make money because of Facebook.

Because of Instagram.

Because of email.

Because of ANY of this shit.

You make money because of who you are and what you decide and make NON-NEGOTIABLE, period, The End!

As you may be aware, in the last day or so Facebook and Instagram went down down down OH so far down.

After a few obligatory ‘stop the world!’ messages to my team and friends (which resulted in a serious convo with one of my soul sisters as to whether we’d now have to become porn stars instead), I got back to business.

The business of posting and selling shit on Facebook, which is admittedly a big part of what I do each day???

Nah … the business of being ME, because THAT is what I actually do each day, and also?

It’s what gets me paid.

Funnily enough, as is often the way with these things, just yesterday somebody was making smart-ass comments to me about how all the coaches would survive if there was no Facebook or Instagram.

“How would they survive?”, I asked myself.

“Well, I have no idea how THEY would survive but I sure as shit know how I would survive:

Very fucking well indeed, thank you very much, because that is who I AM”

Word to the wise:

A) I was making serious money long before I used Facebook for it.

Allow me to say it again for those in the back: YOU MAKE MONEY BECAUSE OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE LEVEL YOU VIBRATE AT.

Vibrate?

It’s an energy thang baby, a frequency shiz niz, it’s just who you ARE and how life works for you.

Handy hint —> the level of wealth you enjoy or moan over now is already just a direct reflection of your frequency, and expectations. It ain’t got jack shit to do with what you do, and it certainly is not a product of which tools are available to you.

It is a product of YOU.

When the socials went down today it was FASCINATING to me to observe the response that came through in the in-between-y bits when people managed to post something.

People worrying about how it would impact their business, or feeling in some way handcuffed.

This is crazy! It’s fear-mongering at its worst and it’s an absolute SHITTY mentality as far as belief systems around where results come from.

Do you know what I felt, when I realised we couldn’t use Facebook as normal for our biz stuff?

EXCITEMENT.

It took a minute to click in, but I found myself getting all wriggly and lit up with excitement.

I love a damn challenge 🙂

And since I also choose to believe that everything is happening FOR me, I also took personal responsibility for this occurrence.

Obviously FB and Insta had gone down in order to force me to finally pull my finger out and learn how to go live on YouTube.

But mainly – hell YEAH to the opportunity to get creative!

Probably taking the whole thing a little bit too far, as I worked my way through some sprints on the rower post HIIT weights session, I started to imagine what would happen if Facebook was TRULY GONE AND NO LONGER OF THIS WORLD.

I got MORE excited with each second that passed (which makes me remember how damn BORED I get as soon as I know how to easily do something aka make money all day err day on Facebook), and I also found myself AUTOMATICALLY GOING INTO ZAG MODE.

Zag?

You know, like ‘When They Zig you Zag’. A classic, if ever there was one!! Thank you Dad, for always having all the BEST books on your bookshelf for me to start reading from 10 or 11 years of age!

See, I have a belief system which works rather well for me and I guess is just part of who I am –

I believe that things ALWAYS work out perfectly for me, and are always done FOR me …

I believe I am always on path …

I believe I always make the right decision, so therefore I never have to beat myself up, I just wait for the lesson –

AND

(drumroll)

I believe that my outcomes are predicated only by my choices, and that there is nothing I EVER need in order to get or maintain or ONLY improve on an existing outcome.

It’s this mindset that causes me to wonder what TF it has to do with anything when people say things like they can’t be in shape ’cause they have kids or just had a kids … or ’cause they can’t get to the gym (for example)

And it’s also this mindset that causes me to KNOW that the money I make and the impact my soul work has in the world has NOTHING to do with what tools or platforms are available to me or working.

I programmed myself a long time ago to IMMEDIATELY swerve if something was no longer serving me or working for me. It’s this part of my mind which therefore right away started coming up with creative and imaginative solutions for how business would OF COURSE carry on (and improve!) with or without social media.

And it’s also this part of my mind which of course right away finds a way to monetize the damn thing and turn it into epic and highly helpful content for you, aka this workshop!

It’s just how I think, and who I am. I am simply unavailable for NOT moving forward, and nothing will ever ever EVER make me believe that I have to depend on anything outside of me for my results.

So why a whole damn workshop on the concept?

Well, it’s more than that, isn’t it?

It’s a mindset of believing that you always get what you want.

It’s a mindset of believing that everything always works out for you.

It’s a mindset of believing that NOTHING can stop you.

That everything is working in your favour.

And?

That you can monetize ANYTHING, any time you choose, and with no ‘requirements’ in order to do so!

I don’t have to tell you that obvs the outcomes you get directly follow and reflect your mindset and your beliefs!!

Here is what else, as well:

This is not just about making money any time, from any thing, and knowing that even with challenge or things going wrong you only THRIVE and EXPAND!!

For me this goes hand in hand with duh – I get to do all of that on my terms.

By having FUN, and being in FLOW, and with ease.

In fact, the more money the more ease!! #justhowitis

That I can literally click my fingers and money shows up for me, meanwhile I’m just over here doing ma thang.

Speaking of which –

I think it’s about time I shared exactly what I currently DO all day, yeah? And how I do it / fit it all in / honour ALL the areas, PLUS manage to spend so much time sitting on my ass doing sweet FA!

In other words … !

Let’s hang out together this weekend!!

Introducing:

What We Will Be Covering!

1) How to Monetize ANY Situation, Including But Not Limited To:

* When social media or any typically depended upon platform goes down (including examples of how I have down this several times, to the tune of tens of thousands)

* Hater situations (including examples, again multiple times, again tens of thousands of dollars)

* When you make a fool of yourself / something embarrassing happens or you screw up (also examples! also lots and lots of lovely moolah)

* When people ‘screw you over’ (ahem, we will talk about this) or desert you (also examples! more money!)

* Basically how to turn any and all life situations, moods, changes of the moon, emotional ups and downs, real life SHIT, to money!

2) Why the ‘When Shit Happens’ times are often the BEST times to make money, aka this is where I teach you what it really means to understand human psychology in terms of SALES, and the mindset of being an actual IN THE FLOW entrepreneur, who ALWAYS sees opportunity and jumps straight on it

3) When NOT to Monetize (okay that one you can have for free – never!!)

4) Understanding Where Money Really Comes From – and aligning yourself TO the frequency of wealth, such that you can literally NOT.BE.IMPACTED by anything that 99.99% of people think will cost them business

5) Money Vibration Principles Revealed (… my own personal philosophies and things that I live by / instil into my being around this, including my own daily practices)

6) Coding For Success

* How to ALWAYS have an endless stream of ideas

* AUTOMATIC continual unleashment of creativity and imagination, especially in so-called times of struggle

* Seeing past problems and accessing higher self in order to always know the answer, and how to move forward

7) Programming to Upgrade – the beliefs, energetic states and emotional patterns you require in order to be this person, have all this work for you, ALWAYS see and have the ability to act on the shit that will most pay off

The ‘Do What You Want All Day’ Bit:

* Exactly how my typical day flows and how I operate for maximum efficiency of time, energy, mental acuity, soul connectedness, etc

* Getting it all done as a busy entrepreneur (and single Mum, in my case) who also refuses to operate at anything less than EXCELLENT in terms of self-care, fitness, fun, playtime, etc

* Exactly what I do all day, broken down to the detail, to helm this becoming-8-figure-empire

* Exactly what I do NOT do all day, either it just gets ignored (hint: a LOT that most online marketers think matters!), or I let other people do it for me

* Calling in soulmate support, even long before you are ready to afford it

* Optimizing energy, focus, personal power, happiness, general flow. Aka mindset and also brain / nutrition hacks and so on

* TIME MANIFESTATION. OH YES IT IS A THING.

AND, while we’re at it, we will also be talking INSTANT MANIFESTATION. The exact process I use to bring the future into the NOW, by clearing all blocks existing between its reality in the quantum and its physical manifestation in the now!!

I’ll be doing this ‘Rapid-Fire’ Session at the end!!

2) Bringing the ‘in private / behind the scenes’ version of you to the public

3) Unapologetic messaging and soul baring to call in your true #soultribe

4) Audience quality vs quality, and active elimination of those who don’t ‘HELL yes’ on your content

5) People don’t buy your products, they buy you. No – people don’t buy you, they buy your energy!! What that means and how to let it out

6) Being real about where you need to take care of YOU in order to be able to show up and shine fully

7) Keeping a laser-focus and tunnel-vision on your own path, and having the courage to pave the way that feels right for you even if it’s not been done before

8) Discernment to walk the line between being polarising and positively outrageous as opposed to just a hot mess 🙂 Scaling and magnetizing FROM the chaos of creativity and following the true artists way!

9) Knowing which ideas to work, what will sell, and how best to sell it so that the entire launch and selling experience is fun AND rewarding for both your audience and you

10) Creating hell yes offers that make them scream yes!

I know!

This workshop is off the HOOK already, and we haven’t even accounted for all the random shiz which will be coming out of me!!
