INTRODUCTION 

BRIGIT: Hello and welcome back to the Biddy Tarot Podcast. Today, I’ve got a really special guest, who isn’t necessarily a Tarot expert, but she does know a thing or two about infinite receiving. She is none other than the Founder of Infinite Receiving, Maru Iabichela. 

Today, I’m going to be talking with her a little bit more about what infinite receiving is all about, what it means to be an infinite receiver, and how you can start to use this not just in your life but also in your Tarot reading practice. 

Now, Maru is known as the queen infinite receiver, and she inspires,

motivates and empowers people to create the life and business of their dreams. She has spoken in front of groups ranging from 120 people to over 1,000 people all over the world, including the U.S., Canada, Dubai and Brazil. She’s truly passionate about speaking and inspiring others. 

Maru’s mission is to teach others how to expand energetically, mentally and successfully to make room for everything that is desired in business. She truly believes that there is no limit to how much we can receive, except for the limits we place on ourselves. 

Now, you’re going to hear Maru talk a lot about this concept of infinite receiving in today’s call, and what I really encourage you to do is just to bring this into your conscious awareness right and think about this concept of infinite receiving on a number of different levels. 

  • How does it relate to your personal life? 
  • How does it relate to your Tarot reading practice? 
  • How does it relate, potentially, to building a business in Tarot? 
  • And how might it relate to the people that you’re working with when you’re doing a Tarot reading? 

Listen to today’s conversation from that perspective, and I think you’re going to get a lot out of it. And hey, even if you don’t, you’re going to get a huge amount out of it anyway because what Maru talks about today is absolutely fabulous. 

Let me get straight into this interview and welcome Maru. 

MANIFEST USING INFINITE RECEIVING WITH MARU IABICHELA 

BRIGIT: Welcome, Maru Iabichela. I’m so excited to have you on today’s call. How are you doing? 

MARU: I’m doing fantastic! It’s 7 PM in the evening here, and it’s noon for you, so I’m super excited to be connecting to the other side of the world and to the future through you! 

BRIGIT: I know you’re looking gorgeous, too. Unfortunately, we’re not doing the video today, but I know you’ve put on your favourite top, and you look amazing! 

MARU: Thank you. Well, next time, we’ll just have to do it live or YouTube or something. 

BRIGIT: That’s it. Now, I would love to hear a little bit more about you, especially for those who might not know you. Tell me a little bit more about your journey towards where you are, particularly with the work that you’re doing around infinite receiving. What has led you here? 

MARU: Oh my gosh! Do you have seven hours? A lot has sent me here, actually. I was born and raised in Venezuela originally, and I have a long story of shrinking. For me, “shrinking” means making myself small, not being confident, being really insecure, feeling bad for others. 

My mom married into wealth when I was 2 years old, so I have a lot of privileges that my family didn’t have—let’s say my cousins and my grandparents. I always felt guilty for having opportunities that others didn’t have, and I would do things like asked to be moved from first class to coach. My parents used to fly first class, and I hated it. 

My story is kind of backwards. I had things, and I hated them. I would always do whatever I could to not be separate from people. I’ll give you an example. When my dad passed away, I turned down his inheritance because I felt bad. I was like, “No, let other people have it.” When I got my first corporate job, I turned down my first promotion because I felt bad that I was getting promoted eight months into the job, and other people that had been there 16 years weren’t getting opportunities. 

This is borderline stupid. Ridiculous. But that was my story. I was the girl that would feel bad for guys that would cheat on me, and I would be like, “Well, he wants another chance. Let me give him a third chance.” I don’t know why I was so clueless. I would just give my power away and never stand up for myself. I got slapped in college, and I asked the girl, “Are you done?” and I just walked away. Things like that. 

My story is filled with this nice, really good girl that never wanted to ruffle any feathers or get in trouble or get anyone in trouble, and I just wanted to stay humble and modest and do good by everyone. 

This didn’t work out really well for me in entrepreneurship, in corporate America. I moved from Venezuela to the States in 2000. I didn’t speak the language. I didn’t really speak a whole lot of English. This is 17 years later by the time of this recording, and I’m really proud of myself that I now get to speak, and I get paid to speak in English. That’s pretty cool, but the truth is that this wasn’t my story. This is not how I started out. 

I thought my dreams were over when I moved to the States in 2000. But slowly but surely, I learned the language, and I started my journey into corporate America. I thought I had it made. I thought all my dreams were coming true. I was doing well, but then one day—the day I realised I had to stay in the job for 35 years in order to get retirement or to get more days off for vacation. 

I was like, “Whoa.” My bubble burst, and I started my journey towards entrepreneurship, towards “I don’t want this. I would rather work for less but help people.” This whole thing about having a corner office and having two cards in the garage and getting a Master’s degree from a good university, it just wasn’t sitting with me that well. 

Long story short… It’s funny—it was a trip to Australia that changed my life. It was 2012, and I fell in love with Australia. All of it—the people, the nature, everything. I was like, “I’m moving here. I’m going to quit my job, and I’m going to go get a year-long visa to move to Australia.” 

I got that, and then the day after I got my visa, I found out I was pregnant. So, I was like, “Oops! I’m not going to Australia. I guess I get to stay here,” but I was determined that I was going to quit my job and follow my dream of helping people and getting paid for it. 

It was a long journey to become successful doing my own thing. It was a very long journey. I started out in 2003, and I was pregnant. My boyfriend asked me to marry him. He fell deathly ill three weeks later, so my journey to become an entrepreneur was very traumatic, kind of. 

But you know what? I stuck it out. It took me about… I don’t know, maybe 2 ½ years, Brigit. I tried everything. I had my baby. I kept trying. I was doing everything I could to not have to go get a job. I used all my credit cards. In one of those instances, I remember it was three weeks after I left my job that I didn’t have a lot of financial security at the time, but I was like, “I’ve got to go! I don’t want to stay here.” 

It’s a very cultural thing here in the United States to stay in the same job and to stay in one really good job for the rest of your life, and I just felt awful about it. I left, and I got a $20,000 inheritance check from my dad. This time, I took it. It was something like 3 or 4 years after he passed away. 

I would say about 2015, I had a very what we call a “dark night of the soul” moment, where I ran out of money, I ran out of cash, I ran out of credit card space, and I was like, “Oh my gosh! What am I going to do? How am I going to keep my coaching business going?” I was doing OK but not consistently. It was just total feast and famine, and I just couldn’t hold onto the money. 

Long story short, I had this come-to-myself moment, and I said, “You know what? Before I get a job, I’m going to try everything. I’m going to put everything on the line, and I’m going to leave no stone unturned. If that doesn’t work, then I will go get a job gladly, but at least I can say I tried everything.” 

It was in that month that I started generating five figures in income a month, and I never looked back. I’ve never made less than, let’s say, $10,000 in U.S. a month since that point. It was a determination. It was like, “I can’t go any lower than this, so I might as well go up. If not, I’ll just go get a job.” Oh my goodness! It’s been such an amazing ride since. 

What led me to what I do now, which is what you probably booked me on the show for—and what most people know me worldwide for—is something called Infinite Receiving. 

Up until last February, I was known for being more of a marketing/business coach. I wasn’t public about my spirituality or my intuition. I felt like that could make me look like a flake if I talked about those things, even though I believed them. 

But a year after I said, “OK, I’m going to try everything, and if that doesn’t work, then I’ll just get a job…” Exactly a year after that, I had another one of those moments where I became a single mom, I ran out of money again, but this time, I kept making more money. Now my problem was that I couldn’t hold onto it. 

I’ll never forget January 2016—I made $17,000 and come February 26th, I couldn’t pay the gas at my house. 

I was like, “There is something really wrong with this picture. My relationships are on the outs. My health is on the outs. My money is on the outs. Nothing is working, and I had better figure this out fast.” 

This is where this spiritual download happened for me. 

I said, “I have to get the hell out of my house. I’m out. I have to go somewhere for a day. I need space.” 

I went to a hotel that I couldn’t afford. It was $100. I probably had $300 to my name, and I spent $97 of it on this hotel. But it was on my way to that hotel, where I was going with the intention of just figuring out what was wasn’t working out, and it was right on my way there that I heard a very clear, distinct voice that said, “You only get what you have the capacity to receive.” Did you get that? “You only get what you have the capacity to receive.” 

I was like, “This is really interesting because I feel like I have nothing and have plenty of capacity—I don’t get this.” 

But I kind of sat with it, and then I had two visions that—between that voice and the two vision I had—completely changed everything: my financial situation, my love situation, everything. Within 25 minutes of me having the vision and reciting a mantra that I got, someone had wired me $7500, and I was like, “This is crazy! I haven’t gotten a dime in my bank account in 18 days, and then suddenly, I get this? This is crazy.” It was out of the blue. It was totally unexpected. 

Ever since then, girl… In five days, I had received $32,000 in cash, and my parents called to say they were going to buy a house for me and my son so that we could move out of my ex’s house. A client of mine called and said, “Hey, I want to give you a week in a villa in St. Barts.” I just felt like I had entered the Twilight Zone. 

I just kept thinking to myself, “How long is this going to last? This is a fluke. I can’t tell anybody. This is so weird!” 

But deep in my heart, I just kept hearing that mantra: “My capacity to receive expands infinitely, like the Universe.” It was through that that I realised that, man, whatever you don’t have in your life is because you somehow don’t have the capacity to get it. There’s a big gap between your asking abilities and your receiving abilities. 

That’s a long history, a long way to explain to people that what you’re asking for, you may not be really open to it. Most of us are asking with the doors closed. In Infinite Receiving, I teach people how to open those doors. Money, love—I’m now in it. Just the most loving relationship of my life. I’m in better mental and physical health than I’ve been… 

Not to brag, but just since last April since this came to me… This came to me in March, and it was about April that I was like, “OK, maybe I should monetise this because everybody that comes in contact with this has a breakthrough or has a miracle or something happen to them.” 

I was like, “Well, I’ll try something. I’ll just put it out there.” Last year, my business ended at half a million dollars! 

BRIGIT: That’s awesome. 

MARU: That was never my goal. I always tell people (and we can talk about this more), “Get out of the how,” because if I would have set my GPS to make multiple six figures, I would have been too worries about that. I was just worried about serving and maximising the number of people that were exposed to the message. That was my strategy. It was never “Oh, make $200,000,” or “Make $500.” No, never, ever. We’ll probably pass that this month, in October 2017. 

Again, same strategy: broadcasting live, broadcasting the Infinite receiving message, and really helping people see that they’re not broken, that there are some things that they’re believing or that have them without a larger receptacle, a larger container to receive. 

INFINITE RECEIVING

BRIGIT: Yeah. That’s super powerful stuff. On so many levels, I’m jumping out of my seat at so many parts of your story. I’m just going, “Yes, yes!” Tell me a little bit more about infinite receiving because I actually think what you’ve shared already is just the magic, the secret, and it’s so simple. Tell me a little bit more about the concept of infinite receiving. 

MARU: So, where do I start? I turned Infinite Receiving into a 3-month experience. Basically, in it we go through how you are blocking yourself internally and externally. As you can tell, I’m kind of a woo-woo spiritual person, but I’m very grounded. For me, I don’t have, necessarily, a framework that I say, “Oh, it’s seven steps to open the floodgates!” I don’t really have that. I take people on a journey; it’s a living program. I don’t have videos recorded. It’s a very intuitive process for me, based on the crew, on the people that join.  

But generally speaking, I first start out by helping people assess their current capacity to receive. I have discovered, through about a year and a half of this research and teaching, that we have different capacities to receive in different aspects of our lives. Let’s say your family life is completely fulfilled. Your tank is limitless; it’s infinite. It’s like the ocean, right? But let’s say you’re in feast and famine with your health or your weight or your image. Your capacity to receive there needs to grow. 

I think everybody has different capacities, and I help them expand the capacity to receive in the area that they need it most first because all the circles are connected. 

I have this exercise where I take people through and teach them that all the circles of all of these different areas of our lives are connected. As you expand one—the smallest one—the other ones expand as well. Your smallest capacity to receive… 

For me, it was a love. A year ago, I didn’t think I was worthy of being unconditionally loved. Unconditional love sounded like Greek to me, another language. 

I was like, “OK, I’ll apply my own teachings. I’ll do everything I can to grow my capacity to receive love.” 

It took me about 6 months to work through my worthiness, desirability, something I called “pedestal”—anything that you feel is not within reach. Everything you feel is difficult and far away from you, you’ve somehow put on a pedestal. Most people do it with money. They think that money is the end-all be-all of everything, and they’re just like, “It’s impossible for me,” for whatever reason. Anything you put on a pedestal, you push far and away from you. That’s one of the tenets. 

I have many principles, and I’ll share just a few, but that’s one. Anything that you put on a pedestal, whether it’s a celebrity or an author or a man or a relationship or money, that’s somehow “Not for me, and it keeps eluding me; it’s just not for me.” You’ve somehow put it on a pedestal; therefore, it makes it impossible to receive it because, energetically speaking, you’re beneath it. 

BRIGIT: And you’ve created some kind of separation there. 

MARU: Totally! 

BRIGIT:  It feels like that thing is separate from me; it can’t be part of my life because it’s out there. 

MARU: You won’t receive anything that you put on a pedestal. 

BRIGIT: Yeah. 

“As you shrink your power, you shrink your money. “

MARU: And people do this, every single freaking day; they just don’t know they’re doing it. That’s one of the first myths that we bust in Infinite Receiving because people put, let’s say, the Tarot business and success in their business on a pedestal, like, “That’s for Brigit or Maru; it’s not for me!” Yeah, you want to bring that baby down from that pedestal because you’ll never reach it if you keep thinking that way. 

We have very practical applications of this. For some reason, I’m blanking out on all of my principles, but I’ll tell you exactly what I remember. 

We’re all peers in the human experience goes right alongside this pedestal, the notion that anything that you put on a pedestal, you’re pushing up and away from you, far and away from you. We’re all peers in the human experience. 

I used to put everything on a pedestal—most importantly, people. I thought that somehow… I don’t know. Michael Bernard Beckwith or Tony Robbins or Marianne Williamson are those people that I used to read and study—somehow they were special, right? 

Of course, they are, but so am I—and so are you! 

As soon as I started bringing them down from being fan-girly of them, and I just saw them as my peers, I started meeting all of them from Tony Robbins to Michael Bernard Beckwith to Lisa Nichols—you name it. I’ll be at a dinner with a friend, and then they’re like, “Brendon Burchard is calling me,” who is a very big name in the industry, and I’m just like, “Wow, this is my life now!” You know what I mean? 

How did I attract that? How did I receive it? 

Because I eliminated those energetic barriers that I had put between me and them. Now I’m just one of them. I don’t see myself any different than they are. That’s very important. 

There are just so many things that people don’t generally think about, and for whatever reason, through the Infinite Receiving download, I was able to get these goggles that allow me to see clearly how people are blocking themselves and shrinking their capacity to receive. 

I would say one of the biggest things, Brigit, is that I found this direct correlation between the way that you shrink… Shrink your energy, shrink your power, shrink your visibility, whatever ways you believe that you don’t deserve to be seen, to earn or to be praise… Any way that you shrink that or give that away, it also gives away your money, and it shrinks your bank account. 

The more you step into your power, the more you feel worthy to receive as you are right now. Not when you lose weight or when you have a husband or when you have a successful business or when you’ve paid your debt. The more you feel worthy to receive as you are right now… 

Obviously, it’s a whole process that I teach. Us women, we’re complicated! It’s not like, “Here, follow these three steps, and you’ll be fine.” No, I have steps that I recommend that are free for anyone to try that will help, but in order to keep that momentum and to really expand more and more and more each day, I definitely recommend that at least follow me because it’s been a journey for me. 

BRIGIT: Yeah.

MARU: Yeah, it’s just amazing. As you shrink your power, you shrink your money. 

BRIGIT: I’m thinking about this in the context for many of our listeners who might be reading Tarot and maybe thinking about starting a business. I was here a number of years ago, thinking, “How can Tarot ever be something that can generate an income that could sustain yourself, let alone your family?” But here I am now with a completely different mindset on things. 

For those who are listening, I want you to really think about: How are you playing this out? What are you putting on a pedestal and, therefore, separating yourself from it in terms of starting a business or starting even something in Tarot? 

MARU: Right. 

BRIGIT: Maru, I’d be really interested to get your thoughts around this. Oftentimes, people are playing small, thinking, “Right, there’s no way I could generate an income,” or “There’s no way I could even charge this amount of money when it comes to Tarot or sharing my spiritual gifts.” What do you say when someone says to you, “I can’t charge money because it’s a spiritual gift”? 

MARU: Well, first of all, I just want to honour that because somehow that’s a belief that has gotten you to where you are today. Somehow, at some point, you adopted that, or you believed that. Whether it’s from your parents or whether it’s from society, I don’t know. I just want to say that I get you. I see you. I hear you. 

And how is that working for you? If it’s not working, then it’s your duty and your job to change it. Believe me—you can change anything. 

I always tell the story of a mentor and friend of mine. His name is Vishen Lakhiani. He’s the CEO of Mindvalley. He tells this story of when he was 32, and he went to a money seminar. He realised that he had a B.S., not true belief about money that in order to be a millionaire, you had to be in your 40s. He was like, “I’m 32—that’s a long time from now for me to be a millionaire!” His business was really struggling. 

Long story short, he did a lot of mindset work around “No, it’s OK for me to be a millionaire. It’s OK for me to receive money.” It wasn’t 6 or 8 months later that his business had crossed the million-dollar line, and they were able to save the business. It took about 8 months. 

For me, in order to believe that you deserve… To me, it’s beyond Tarot and your spiritual gifts. I want you to just try on the belief that you deserve to have a livelihood doing what you love. Start there. If what you love is teaching people and sharing your spiritual gifts, then there’s plenty of money to go around. You thinking that there’s no money for that is you thinking that somehow we live in limited resources and limited abundance universe, and maybe some people were born with a badge of receiving. Those people get money, and these people don’t get money. That’s just a very silly thing, you know? 

Just by virtue of you being alive and being someone who has chosen to listen to podcasts like this and others, like Brigit and myself, that tells me that you have a tickle in your soul. You are trying to listen or move forward but with a big tether around your waist. It’s like you’re trying to drive with the brakes on if you believe that. 

Brigit is the perfect example of somebody who has been able to outgrow those beliefs and that story. If you’re going to try to do this but deep down be sceptical about it, then get out. Literally, go work for a coffee shop. 

BRIGIT: Yeah. 

MARU: I beg you to do that because you’re not giving yourself any chances. You’re not! It’s like you’ve entered the race knowing you’re going to fail. Why? Stop it! Don’t do that. 

BRIGIT: Stop! Stop now! 

MARU: You’re shooting yourself in the foot every time you think that. Instead, I need you to find better role models. You’re listening to two good models here. I’ve made my new living now selling my set of courses and teaching people how to receive. I just need you to maybe change your environment and listen to more things like this and surround yourself with people that have been there and done it. 

I love what Jim Rohn says, that we’re the by-product of the five people we hang out with. That is so true! If you have a negative mindset around this, you’re probably hanging out with your parents too much or people that tell you, “Oh no, the only way to make a decent living is by working and trading your dollars for hours.” 

It is possible, and I want you to open yourself up to the possibility that what you see us people do—that we’re doing it in a very ethical and fun way—then why not you? Why not you? 

Just creating that belief for yourself that it’s available, it’s out there, why not you, and taking action, it’s going to do a lot to offset and counter those negative beliefs that maybe you grew up with, that the only way to make money was to clock in and out from someplace. 

BRIGIT: I really believe that that mindset shift is absolutely critical. If you’re thinking about starting a business, yes, you can go, “OK, I’ve got to go build my website, do my social media, create my email list,” and so on, but if your mindset is in the wrong place, and you’re thinking, “I don’t really deserve this,” or “I can’t make money out of this,” it’s going to put things off centre. 

I love what you’re sharing today, Maru, because I think it’s simple, but it is incredibly powerful. 

MARU: Yeah. 

BRIGIT: I don’t want people to overlook the simplicity of this because it is just the perfect thing that you need in order to really up-level and take you into that whole, different, new space. 

MARU: Yeah. Before I go, I would love to share about how practically this impacted my life. I used to invest in branding and the best coaches, and what I realised is that when I hit my rock bottom financially, my first one, I realised that I hadn’t invested in me, that everything was for the business. And where does the business come from? It’s me. I hadn’t invested in mindset or life coaching. It was all business, business, business, business, business. 

I hit this rock bottom, and I was like, “Screw everything! You know what? I’m going to do things the way I feel like doing them,” and that’s when I became successful. 

Now a lot of what I teach is just the foundational, the mindset stuff. Without this, it’s kind of like trying to build a castle in quicksand. It is the most important investment I think you’ll do just for your future, period, because this stuff… One mindset shift that you have will change everything. 

I want to recommend this thing—it’s an awesome one. You may even like this one, Brigit! I started writing on my phone, having reminders. One of my good friends was very successful in business, and I remember she would show me her bank account. She was like, “This was a $60,000 month. This was a $70,000 month.” I would be like, “Oh my God! How cool would that be?” 

Instead of getting triggered by her success, I would be like, “It’s evidence it’s getting closer to me.” 

I had reminders on my phone that flashed several times a day that said, “Wow, Maru, congratulations! You now make your former annual income as your monthly income.” 

That became my affirmation. I was like, “I make my former annual income into my monthly income.” 

And what do you know, it took me about 6 months before I started making at least $30,000 a month, which was my first salary out of school, out of university. A year, and I would just start generating that a month. That’s just an example of what a mindset shift can do for you—with plenty of zeroes. 

BRIGIT: Yeah. 

MARU: Well, don’t sell yourself short because you can. 

BRIGIT: Absolutely. Money is one part of it, but even just having this sense of self-worth with what you do through your intuitive gifts and talents and so on… Even valuing the self-worth, the value that you offer in readings and so on, I think, even having that mindset shift that Tarot reading, yes, it could be a cheap party trick, or it could actually be changing and transforming someone’s life. Even that subtle mindset shift is enough to just push you into a whole new way of working with Tarot and working with your gifts and so on. 

Then the next layer of that is the money stuff, which we’ve been talking about today, which I’m obviously very passionate about as well. 

MARU: Absolutely. It’s not a reading or a coaching session… You will never know the ripple effects of that, and I pray that you find the ripple effects of you and what you’ve created in someone’s life, but a lot of the times we don’t. I know I don’t, but I trust that what I exchange with that person… Bif we came together in a time and place, it was for a reason… But I have that inner confidence and knowingness that if we met, that was somehow a divine encounter, and I know that I threw a pebble in the water, and that’s going to have infinite effects that I don’t know. I can’t see right now. 

WHERE YOU CAN FIND MARU

BRIGIT: Yep. That’s beautiful. Maru, where can people find out more about you? 

MARU: Well, I love Instagram—@infinitereceiving. You can definitely add me on Facebook as well. I do a lot of stuff on Facebook, but you can also look up InfiniteReceiving.com/IRofMoney, which I’m sure is going to be in the show notes. I am currently creating a beautiful 5-week program called “Infinite Receiving of Money: More Money, Less Problems.” It’s truly about applying these beautiful, universal principles to maximise your capacity to receive money. 

It’s not like I’ve never had any money struggles since, but I just don’t suffer with it, and it’s easy. I’ve really not had any struggles. Even when I say that, I’m like, “No, not really.” Ever since this came to me, I just have so much self-trust, and I just realised that money is abundant, like oxygen. Money is oxygen. It’s out there for everyone. There’s not a limited quantity of oxygen that’s designated for each person, but it’s our ability to have the creativity and the courage. Combine those two things—a good idea and the courage to put it out there—and then ask for the money. 

That’s what money is about. All the other stuff is story. Story is Disneyland we’ve created in our heads that is keeping us from getting our hands on it, and eliminated a bunch of the stories has made me a lot of money and made me happy, and I’m very proud of the work I do. I don’t think it’s dirty. I think it’s awesome to help people expand their consciousness and their mind. 

Ultimately, guys, if you think about it, there’s so much stuff going on in the world right now that even if you had a pile of billions of dollars in front of you, it couldn’t save you from a hurricane or an earthquake or even a mass shooting. I’m not trying get all negative here, but I was talking to my tribe about that today. I was like, “This is exactly what I talk about! Money is not the end-all be-all of all things.” 

The thing that makes me feel the richest of all my support system, both business and personal life, because if I was successful in my business, but I was a bitter, sour person because I was having to do everything myself, and I was crazy hustling? That would not be fun at all. 

BRIGIT: Yeah. 

MARU: For me, I always… Honestly, what I would pray the most of all things is that I would have a world-class support system. That’s what I have now, and that makes me feel so rich and so supported and so perfect. I feel perfect, and I pray that you find people around you that make you feel perfect just the way you are. 

BRIGIT: Yep, beautiful. What a beautiful way to end our conversation today. I love it! Maru, thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and your story because I think stories also really help to understand how these things evolve and how they play out in our real lives, so thank you so much for sharing that. I appreciate it very much. 

MARU: Oh my gosh! Invite me again! I actually want to go to Australia in 2018, so let’s keep connected. 

BRIGIT: Yeah! You’ll be coming up for the Sunshine Coast. 

MARU: I love Australia! I wish I had your accent. 

BRIGIT: Aw, awesome! Well, thank you so much, and I’m sure we’ll speak together again soon. 

MARU: Super! Thank you, everyone. I hope you enjoyed it. 

WRAP-UP 

BRIGIT: So, there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this conversation with Maru, and I hope it’s got your brain exploding with ideas of how you can start to change and adjust your mindset so that you can welcome new opportunities and new abundance into your life. I really resonate with what Maru was talking about. In particular, how do we put ourselves out there? How do we believe in our value? 

And when we do believe in our value, when we fully understand our value, that is when we can create abundance around us. Now, that abundance can flow in terms of money, but it can also flow in terms of things like self-worth, purpose, connections with others, impact with others and so on. Walk away from this podcast episode and just explore your life and think about “Where am I limiting myself? Where can I start to allow myself to receive?” 

Remember what Maru said: It was only when she opened up the space to receive that she actually did start to receive. I hope that’s been helpful. I hope you have a fabulous week ahead, and I look forward to connecting with you again soon. 

Oh, and just remember that you can get all of the show notes from today, including links to Maru’s website and the free resources that she has shared with us, you can find that all over at BiddyTarot.com/98. Plus, you get the transcript to the call and all other good stuff. 

All right, have a great week, and I will speak with you next time.

Bye for now!
