Hey, gorgeous! It’s Denise here from Lucky Bitch and today I’m talking about something that’s dear to my heart.
It’s about how self-love and acceptance can really affect your income.
Yeah, they really do.

“It’s safe for me to earn more money.”
“It’s safe for me to pay more tax,”
You might be wondering where they originated from and why.
A couple of years ago I realized that money blocks weren’t coming from a place of not knowing how to make money.
I had a lot of clients who are smart, ambitious, clever — they could figure out HOW to make money.
They could figure out HOW to put something together and sell it.
So, that wasn’t the issue. What was it?
Obviously, you can have a lot of different money blocks, but what it really came down to was a complete lack of allowing yourself and giving yourself permission, to make more money.
When people started working on their self-love and acceptance, suddenly they could make more money.
From this realization I decided to create these quotes – and I actually did them all in the space of two hours. I was procrastinating on doing something else and I sat and I just wrote out about 250 different “It’s safe to…” quotes.
Some of them might trigger you more than others.
If you read one and go, “Ugh! YUCK”, that’s a sign that it’s a trigger for you.
What do you do about that?
You could tap on it (use EFT), you could print the mantra out and put it somewhere where you can see it and just give yourself permission to release that trigger and see what comes up for you.
I thought I would give you guys a couple of examples from my card deck and what I think some of the meanings are behind them.
I actually created these cards for an event that I did. During the event, every time we had a pause I’d just say, “Get a card and see if there’s a message for you.”
Generally, there was a very strong, specific message.
Then, sometimes people would get the same card — and there were 50 different cards in here, 50 different things that they could pick and often they would pick the exact same one — and they’d be like, “Oh, universe, I get it. I totally get it now.”
For example: It’s safe for me to upgrade my team.
That could be a message for you right now.
For a lot of us, when we want to do upgrades in our business, sometimes it doesn’t feel safe.
It could be an assistant, upgrading your accountant, hiring a book keeper.
Sometimes it feels like, “Oh, God. That’s going to cost me money” or, “I’m not ready to go to that next level.”
You might uncover that you’re worried that you won’t make the sales to make back the investment or that you’ll screw it up (again). (I have some hiring tips here on hiring your first assistant)
If that’s a message for you, here is your message.
It’s safe for me to upgrade my team.
Oh, here’s one: It’s safe for me to be rich and hot.
So, this was inspired by Marie Forleo, her brand used to be Rich, Happy and Hot.
Do you think it might not be safe for you to have both?
You might be thinking, “We’ll I can have one or the other. If I’m hot, then I’ll be broke. If I’m really rich, then I’ll get really fat,”.
In fact, there are MANY parallels between weight and money.
You really have to look at those unacknowledged fears that you have.
It’s totally safe for you to be rich and hot. Or rich in other ways, like an amazing marriage or awesome hair.
You don’t have to trade off one area for another. Just because you’re lucky in one area of your life, doesn’t mean you can’t have even MORE good stuff in your life.
Here’s another one:
It’s safe for me to trigger others.
Maybe you’re holding yourself back from earning more money because you’re worried that you’re going to trigger other people. That’s something JUICY to look at.
Many women are scared to unintentionally hurt other people and they spend so much time worrying about it that they don’t let themselves shine.
So stop that.
It’s totally safe for you to be successful and if you trigger others, that’s their problem. Jealousy is normal but it’s usually just a reflection of what you really want.
It’s okay for you to be rich. It’s okay for you to be successful – EVEN IF it pisses off other people.
I’m just going to do a completely random one:
It’s safe for me to open my bills.
Do you procrastinate opening your bills
because you’re worried that there’s always going to be bad news?
Are you going to post box all the time going, “Oh, God, it’s going to be another bill. Oh, what’s in there today?”
Well, time to shift that around, because it’s a huge block to money.
Every time you open your post box, affirm something like “Unexpected money comes to me in unexpected ways”
Or “I’m ready to receive money in the post!”
It’s safe to have money in the bank.
Are you the kind of person that as soon as you have extra money in the bank, you’re just looking for ways to spend it or you feel really icky about it or even guilty? You might think, “Why would I feel weird about any of those things?”
Trust me, this is a super common one!
Honestly, it’s just great to look at your goals from every angle.
Throw everything at it.
Looking at those unacknowledged fears, looking at where it’s not safe for you to be successful and wealthy, that is where the gold is.
Every time I hit an income plateau or every time I’m feeling a bit icky in my life and business, I always just go back to something like this and go,
“What’s not safe for me to do? It’s safe for me to invest in my business.”
As I said, I’ve got 50 of these cards. If you want the images of them, I’m totally happy to give them to you.
Just go to LuckyBitch.com/safe — and I’ll give you the image files for all of these and you can just have a little play-around and see if there’s something that pops up. You can scroll through and choose one at random, or have a browse each day and see if anything triggers you.
There’s probably a message for you.
In the future, I’m totally developing an app for this, by the way. But, for now, you can download all of the ones that we have so far. They’re really, really fun to play with. Grab all the “It’s safe” oracle cards here
Because it’s safe for you to go to the next level.
