NL: Hi everyone. My name is Natalie Ledwell and this is the Inspiration Show. Today on the show, I have a really good girlfriend of mine and we are going to be talking about her new book which is called “Quantum Success”. It is the 7 essential laws for thriving, joyful, and prosperous relationships with work and money. Boom! (Laughter) So before I introduce my special guest which you probably just had a little glimpse of her then, I just want to remind you that after the show is over, don’t forget to click the link below this video so you can download the free ebook version of my bestselling book, “Never In Your Wildest Dreams”. So please let me introduce my special guest and very good friend Christy Whitman. Hi Christy.
CW: Hi Natalie. I’m so grateful to be here with you always to share space with you.
NL: And you’re looking gorgeous in yellow. (Laughter) So for those people who haven’t met you before, which I doubt that there is anyone in our community who hasn’t, but maybe there’s someone watching the show online who hasn’t met you before. Give us a little bit of your background on how you got in to doing the work that you do.
CW: Absolutely. So I did the checklist of the things I was told that were going to make me happy in life and as I looked around my life I had all those things. I had money, I had a little hot body, I had a boyfriend, I had a great career living in Chicago with my best friend. You know, it felt like I had it all. All the things that you know, degree, blah, blah, blah… and I just felt so unfulfilled and I felt empty and I was literally seeking something. And when I started asking questions like is this all there is, is there more? What happened was a series of events that led me to be living in northern California and I soon found myself $60,000 in debt, I was about 30 pounds overweight, I quit my job because I couldn’t stand doing it anymore, I dropped the last bad boy that I dated. And I actually recreated my life from the inside out. And for the first time I could look around my life and go “nothing is working here”. But I feel fulfilled and I started meditating. And when I started meditating I also started attracting information like on Law of Attraction and the other 7 essential laws or the other laws. And I started applying those laws in my life and things started then manifesting and I was fulfilled and also had all the things that I wanted. So I went from having everything, feeling empty, to feeling totally fulfilled to having nothing to then having both, both end. And all of it was because I started learning these laws, applying them to all aspects of my life and literally, that’s 21 years ago, and I’m a completely different person than I am today than I was then. You’ve met my husband many many times, we shared lots of vacations, the type of man that he is, a conscious loving man, you know, having the funds to do what I want to do, I’m in a career that I absolutely love, having awesome kids that I love being around, to community of friends like yourself, every aspect of my life truly is amazing and it’s because I applied these laws.
NL: Right. And like I said, I’ve been a testament to the life that you have and very grateful to be a part of it. And so with this new book, because you’ve had several books before, “Quantum Success”, what is your definition of quantum success? What makes it different to regular success?
CW: Oh I love that question. Instead of just striving and pushing and doing more and having that feeling of having to force it and make it happen and going outside to kind of create a feeling of success inside. This is learning how to literally tap in and align to the infinite potential and the pure potentiality that exists in the universe. So that we’re tapping in to that so that every action we are taking creates so much more. It’s kind of like, the best way I could describe it is, you have a light, and the light doesn’t work because it’s not plugged in. When you plug in and you start aligning yourself with the forces and universal laws, but when you start feeling that sense of success, already within you, without anything having to happen, that’s when the things, a situation, a circumstance, everything that is literally the right path to take. So you’re taking so much less effort, you’re still making effort, you’re still taking action, but what you’re doing (inaudible) of a huge, like exponential reward on all the action that you are taking.
NL: Right. So this is an extension of Law of Attraction?
CW: It’s what happens as a result of. Right. So as you’re plugging and aligning, working with, you know, we’ve both seen that right, so like people understand law of attraction but they’re not living their lives by it. And so this book, like all my other books, was a book that just downloaded through me. I don’t just go “Okay, today, I’m going to write a book” and my literary agents will come to me and go “What’s your next book?” and I’m like “It hasn’t been shown to me yet”. So this book was shown to me on a cruise ship in the middle of 3 o’clock in the morning when my family was all sleeping and I grabbed my notebook and my pen and went in to the bathroom and stayed there on the floor for about 3 hours just writing and writing and writing because this is kind of, if you think about it, the secret for your career and money. And it’s very specific to not just law of attraction but the universal laws in the area of career and money.
NL: Right. So what do you find in your experience, are the main blocks or the main reasons that people aren’t living the success or the wealthy lives that they truly do deserve to be living?
CW: Well I feel like it’s 2 things. I know it’s 2 things actually. It’s living in a space of alignment and so what is alignment right? It’s having your, everything that emanates from us. Like we are energy towers sending out a signal all day everyday. From our thoughts, from the words that we say to the things we write down to the perspectives that we hold, to the feelings that we hold onto, all of that can either be misaligned or it can be aligned. And most people don’t have the tools to align themselves. For example, when you think about, you go in about your day, it could be when you were a kid, when you were a teenager, it could be yesterday, it doesn’t matter, and you get bushwhacked, meaning like someone says something to you, someone does something, you get some news, and most people have a hard time processing the emotions of it unless they are living in a higher awareness and have the tool set to do that right. And what happens is that, as a human being everything is energy. And so instead of like breathing in and feeling the hurt or feeling their anger or feeling whatever emotion for example, a lot of the times, it gets triggered by blocks that we already have. And energy is always constantly moving. So energy, something bushwhacks you right, it might bushwhack a feeling of joy, or a feeling of fun or playfulness. And so you got this block, this energetic block, and this energy is still there but it is being blocked. And so now we are creating from that block, not from the flow of energy. So that’s one way, that’s just one of many ways but that is alignment and when we can learn how to get back in alignment without huge, like there’s that overflowing feeling of abundance or joy or love or success, whatever the essence is of that and we’re in that state we then take momentum from that place. Because it is really about alignment and momentum and the thing that I see with most people is either they’re taking tons of momentum like they are working really hard, even doing spiritual practices, like they’re working really hard, do the affirmations and meditate and you know, just making all these effort but they’re really not aligned. And it’s the combination. Or we see other people that they are aligned all day long but they just don’t take any action. And we’re both metaphysical and physical. So it’s a combination of both. We’re here as a physical entity to co-create with the divine. The divine can give us that stream of energy and essence and that flow but it’s us as the co-creative human person that has to get on the stage or write the email or make the phone call or do whatever is the next step that we are asked to do in order to continue that creative flow in our lives.
NL: Right. So how do we get in to alignment?
CW: So, one of the first things people always ask me like if you’re going to just start out doing this, you have to watch your words. You have to watch what you say because it’s so easy to go “Oh that sucks, oh that guy is a jerk, or oh my God, parenting is so hard, or oh my god, blah, blah, blah”. You know, it’s easy to say these things and a lot of times it’s habitual but there are certain words that I’ll just give you one example, like when people say I can’t afford that. Instead of saying I can’t afford that, it might be true, it might be realistic that you can’t afford it, but each time (inaudible) you’re sending out, disempowering to yourself. So you’re sending out a very low vibration, so instead of saying I can’t afford it, say it’s not a financial priority for me right now or I choose to spend my money on something else right now. And it gives you a sense of choice and of freedom and flow that “can’t” doesn’t give you. So we have to think of it this way, whenever we are, cliff note version of this is that whey we are feeling bad we’re in lack. We’re in limitation of some ways you perform. When we feel good, we’re in alignment with abundance. So that’s how you start to align is if you are all of a sudden find yourself in a bad mood during the day or someone says something or does something or you’re going through a transition in your life and you’re feeling bad most of the time. We need to look at how can we change the perspective of it, how can we surrender it, how can we change our thoughts about it, how can we speak differently about it, you know, how can we maybe get some energy release on it because maybe there are some blocks that you can’t see past the blocks because they’re so blocking you. So I do a lot of times as people as an energy healers, I help them release their blocks so their energy can flow and when you’re back in flow, our natural state of being is to be enjoy, is to feel free, but we have to get out of those limitations and places where were arguing for our limitations and we’re staying stuck in what limits us, we’re staying stuck in the lack and the scarcity and shift over to alignment and to possibilities. That’s one of the laws I talk about in “Quantum Success”, is the law of sufficiency and abundance. So one of the first ways to do that in actions for anybody can do, put a doorway in to abundance because you cannot attract abundance from a place of lack, they’re two polar opposites. They’re on totally different frequencies as you know. We have to at least be satisfied, we have to come from a place of having it be sufficient. It’s not just law of abundance, it’s the law of sufficiency and abundance. Once you get in to that groove then it opens the door for what other opportunities, other possibilities, other vibrations, other frequencies to bring you different experiences. So do you get in to satisfaction? No matter how much money you have in your wallet or bank account right now, being grateful. Being grateful that you have that. No matter what kind of house you live in or an apartment, what kind of car you drive, what kind of relationships you’re in, finding the positive aspects about that. Writing those down, listing those things. You know, some people say how do you do gratitude? Because so many people, as you know Natalie, are living from here. I’m grateful for this, I’m grateful for that, I’m grateful for this, but there is no change of energy. There’s no essence change. And the best way to do is to think of something or someone and then ask yourself why you’re grateful for these things. So instead of saying I’m grateful for my husband, I’m grateful for my boys, you know, and those kind, I’ll say, “I’m grateful for Frederick”, and the reasons why I’m grateful for him is the way he looks at me, is the way he touches me, and just like shows me such affection. The way he parents in a such amazing co-parent with me with our boys. The way he’s most kindest heart. His rock hard body, you know. I could go on and on but now I’m in that space of truly feeling the gratitude instead of just mentally feeling it here, my whole state, my whole being is exuding gratitude. So now I’m in a state of abundance.
NL: Yeah. Well, you’re absolutely right because I also teach the same thing. It’s like going through and ticking off the box and going “Alright, five things that I am grateful for today”, defeats the purpose. Because it’s not about ticking off the box, it’s not about writing down five things, it’s about being the resonate match and exuding the resonance of gratitude out in to the universal unified field because whatever positive emotion and higher vibration we send out, it is the vibrational match to abundance. And you’re right, like we have to, for example, just recently, you know, I went through a break up with my boyfriend, you know there there was hurt and upset, whatever, but of course, once I feel that and process that, I go, “What is the gift here?” You know and it gives me the opportunity, it’s always an opportunity. An opportunity to look at “Okay, well why am I upset, what are my triggers, what are my wounds” and get to release that. Get to look at all the amazing things, the wonderful time that we spent together and be able to eventually get back to that place. Yes, things are going to knock us off kilter. That’s life. But we get to determine how long we stay there and how we choose to tell the story moving forward. And we can choose the story that empowers us so that it keeps us back in that place as well.
CW: And you are such a brilliant teacher of this. And it’s been such, like I get a front row seat to your brilliance and I’ve seen you go through some major transitions in your life of the years I’ve known you. And you do it with such a grace and you truly preach what you practice and it’s amazing to see someone like you as a strong powerful woman, be able to take the tools that you teach, apply them and you keep seeing your life elevate and shift and get better and getting even more expansive. You don’t let what I call contrast the things that we, does it certainly prefer one and contrast can be anywhere from an annoying person driving in a car to a break up, you know, to even beyond that. But it’s like, you know, I’d love to say that once you start working with the universal laws life is like unicorns and rainbows everywhere you go all day everyday. It’s just not realistic. There is contrast, there’s variety. That’s knowing like when the contrast shows up, that what to do with it and then shift back in the state of gratitude, shift back in to positive expectation. You truly are a deliberate creator and that’s one of the laws, it’s law of deliberate creation. You don’t just let what’s happening to you affect your mood. You affect your mood and then you create your reality by how you choose to feel.
NL: Yeah. Oh no, my mood was affected for a little while I’ll fess up to that.
CW: Well you’re human, of course.
NL: But I didn’t stay there. Exactly. So who are the people that you think would benefit the most from “Quantum Success”?
CW: Any, so honestly, anybody that’s wanting to create a different relationship like, we didn’t even talk about money yet but it’s like anybody that’s wanting to create a different relationship with money, anybody that’s wanting to have some type of career success whether it’s you wanting to look for a job, you wanting to find a better job, you want to start your own business, you wanting to elevate the business you already have, you’re looking to get a job promotion, anything that has, I mean, truly they’re universal principles so you can apply it to any aspect of your life. But this is very, has very specific examples and stories about people that I have coached, people that I have helped, myself, in the area of career and money.
NL: Yeah. And the thing is you have coached hundreds of thousands of people. And like you said you’ve been in this world 20 years and like I come across people all the time that have worked with you that have nothing but amazing things to say about the work that you do, the way that you coach, how much integrity you are. So guys, I highly recommend that you get your hands on this book “Quantum Success”. So where can we send them, Christy, to connect with you and to get their hands on the book?
