Can wearing your wealth make you money?


Interviewer:

Okay, so I'm happy to welcome Julie Tuton on today's call. And I love your topic, “Can wearing your wealth make you money?” I know that you make this fabulous jewelry and I´ve seen some of them on people at Access Consciousness classes that I've attended and so I am really happy to be talking to you about this topic.

Julie:

Yes! me too. Thank you for inviting me.

Interviewer:

So tell me, tell me about your jewelry and what got you started with the jewelry? I think that's like a great place to start.

Julie:

Cool. Well, I guess I've just always really loved jewelry. I've loved wearing jewelry, being sparkly and showing up in the world... which I’m realizing is somewhat different than a lot of people!

When I graduated college, the jewelry that I really liked, I couldn't afford, and the jewelry I could afford, I didn't really like. So I started making my own! It was interesting because people would stop me on the street and say, “where did you get that piece?” I had so many people asking me about what I was wearing that I sort of got nudged by the Universe into creating a business. It was just something that was fun for me. It came easily to me.

Now, over 30 years of creating this business, I’m expanding it even more with the tools of Access Consciousness, incorporating my awareness of energy with gemstones in my jewelry designs. What I create with my jewelry is an elixir that invites people’s Being to show up more. It's pretty fun!

Interviewer:

Wow. That sounds, wow. What an enticing invitation to your jewelry!

Julie:

Yeah, it's amazing. It's sort of like an energetic session, like when somebody changes after they've had an Access Bars session… you know how their face changes, and their body changes? It's a similar thing when they put on jewelry that really resonates with them and their body. Their body is asking for an energy.

Interviewer:

Mm. Hmm. So then, your topic about “Can wearing your wealth and make you Money?” when you're talking about wealth, are you only talking about jewelry, or are you talking about other things as well?

Julie:

Oh, it's everything!. It's really everything. The first point that I wanted to bring up is honoring your body in whatever way it would like, to have more luxury, whether that's going and visiting a store or a home.

When I was a kid, we used to always look at open houses. I have no idea why. I think my parents liked to do it. We'd look at these really big beautiful homes and I just loved what it felt like to be in those spaces. So for me, stepping into a luxurious situation, wearing luxurious fabrics, or eating food that's really refined and created with care and love... all of those are ways of wearing your wealth, or stepping into more luxury and receiving it. It’s learning how to receive what money can gift you.

So how many of you out there feel like you don't deserve to have nice things or feel like you don't want to show up wearing something nice, or in a nice car or something, because somebody might judge you?

Interviewer:

No. Wow, see what money can gift you. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Julie:

I'm not sure where it came from. I think it was just something that I naturally gravitated towards. We weren't wealthy, we were very middle class when I was young. At one point when my parents got divorced, we were really struggling as a family, I wore only hand me down clothes from my mom and my brother, but I still had this love of beauty and elegance.

I loved chandeliers and fur. I remember traveling on public transportation and seeing somebody in a fur coat in front of me, and I always wanted to touch it. It was about receiving the beauty and the elegance that was around me. The more you receive from it, the more it actually can gift to you and show up in your life... if that's something that you desire.

Interviewer:

Wow, and then the willingness to receive the judgment of having money, this is such a biggie for a lot of people. Judgment is one thing that’s difficult to receive. The other thing is when you see that someone is jealous of you, or envious of your success. People actually don't know their success really because they want to fit into the mold that the other person has on them. Can you talk about more about this?

Julie:

Well, sure. In Access Consciousness we teach tools about receiving judgment because when you're in resistance to judgment it works against you.

First of all, it depletes you energetically to resist something... and it also depletes your income stream. So not only do you feel less energized, but you cut off the money that you can receive. But when you're willing to allow people to judge you, either positive or negative, you increase your receiving.

For example, “you're the most beautiful person” could be a positive judgment, and not necessarily an acknowledgement. Somebody who's being jealous that you have more than them, or they don't like you because you have something, is just their point of view, it is not real or true. The thing about receiving judgment is that it's just an energy that can come into your world, and you can move it and change it, and have it contribute to you however you like.

I've been facilitating a two part tele-series about receiving judgment and how it can add to your life called, “ How to create more Money,” It's so interesting to see where people put up those barriers. What if we didn't do that? If somebody judged you about something, it may have nothing to do with you, for example the judgment that “Oh, your hair is straight.” It's like, well, okay, my hair is straight. You can't really feel resistance to that, you know? So it's just looking at it like, okay, that's an interesting point of view, and how can that person thinking about me in a positive way or negative way just be an interesting point of view, and contribute energy to whatever it is that I'm creating in my life.

Interviewer:

And you know how Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness, talks about receiving judgment actually adds $5,000 to your income every year for every judgment you receive, and for every judgment you resist it decreases by $10,000.

Julie:

So, if you'd like to have more money, maybe play with the possibility of receiving whatever judgments come your way, knowing that they're just points of view! It’s not real. It's not true, and it can't hurt you.

Some of the things I do because it's fun for me brings up judgment in other people. It's kind of funny. So maybe one day I'm coming from work at my boutique and I have several necklaces on, as well as dangling earrings. To others, it looks like I’m over dressed. For me, it’s normal, and easy and fun!

One particular day it was really cold out and I had on a vintage fur coat, that I was gifted from my mom, and I went to play tennis with a friend. I’m on the tennis court with sparkly necklaces and a fur coat! People on the tennis court were like, “who is this person?” Really? It didn't matter to me. I was laughing at it. I just switched into my tennis shoes and, and played. Why do I have to take all of it off and be a sporty girl? I can be a princess on the tennis court, and how can that make me money?

Interviewer:

I love that. I love that. I mean, I used to live in Saudi, Arabia before. And, you know, there's a lot of golds and especially in the Asian community, we have this whole thing buying a lot of gold. And so I would see these women and they would have these big bangles and they would be wearing like 10 and 12 of those. Can you imagine like almost like this whole six to eight inches of your hands covered up in all this gold. And I would look at that and I go, oh my God, they’re so gaudy. Why do they have to display the wealth like that? And this was way before actually, but now I would be so happy to see people do that.

Julie:

Interesting too when you wear gold because it's quite heavy. It's much heavier than what people are used to, with many designers using gold-filled and vermeil. Solid gold is quite a bit heavier metal. One of the things that you can notice when you put on solid gold, if you will lower your barriers, if you will allow your body to receive the energy of it. It's an incredible energy! Our bodies love gold. You can actually eat gold! If you've ever been to Paris they have beautiful pastries with gold leaf on top.

Interviewer:

I was talking on a lot of the other calls about a seven star hotel here called Emirates Palace hotel and the whole deco is gold. So you can go inside. And I once went in there when I had intensity my body and I walk inside and my intensity all just vanished. You can go and you can drink a cup of coffee with a gold shavings in it. It costs about $50. You can eat pastry there, with gold leaf on it and my son, I remember, two-three years back on his birthday, that's what he wanted. He said, mom, I want to go to the Emirates Palace. And I want to eat those pastries of gold.

Julie:

That's so fun! And, think about what it brings up. There are a lot of people who come into my Boutique and say they don't like gold, but they're thinking about maybe a particular style of gold jewelry from several decades ago that might not be their style or something like that. It’s an old point of view.

Maybe they've never put on gold and actually felt the energy. I encourage people to try different things on and to feel the energy of it, and to not come to a conclusion about what they like or don't like based on the past, or based on what somebody might judge. Simply as an honoring of your body. What does your body like? What would your body like to wear, and what's going to make it feel nurtured and supported? What will make you money?

Interviewer:

So, you know, I'm in the Middle East, right? So we have a lot of gold here and we have the gold souks where you have all these shells, which are like, filled with gold. And when we did Access Foundation workshop the first time, the facilitator took us all to the gold, and we actually pulled the energy from all the gold shops. And it is really interesting because, you know, as pulling energy, my body was drawn to some shops whereas it was like not drawn to the other shops. And it was really interesting to see when I ran into those shops, it was all the jewelry that my body really liked. And the other shop had jewelry, which my body did not like, and then know I wanted to buy a gold biscuits and stuff like that. And so we kept pulling energy and using the awareness of energy. We actually walked into a particular shop and ended up buying gold and silver biscuits there. That was a really interesting experience. And that was like the first time that I had this experience of receiving from the energy of gold.

Julie:

Yeah, it's really interesting. And gold likes to be with us. We can invite it to come into our lives. I remember being at one of the advanced classes several years ago and I thought to myself, I would really like a gold watch with a mess of diamonds around the face. It was just a whisper of a thought I had. And then one of the people who was attending was a man who dealt in antique watches. So I was like, oh, hey, do you have anything like what I'm thinking of? Three days later he texted me a photo of a watch that he had just gotten in, and it was everything that I was asking for.

So I used some of my 10% honoring account and bought the watch at a very good deal. When I put it on, it was really heavy and it almost felt awkward to wear. I had to learn to receive how much it could contribute. It took me a while before it felt natural. Now I wear it all the time. And sometimes I even take it off and put it in somebody else's hands to give them an experience of gold--several ounces. It's just really beautiful. And to hold that and to feel the energy of it, it changes people. Really, a cool experience.

So if it's something that you'd like to try and something you'd like to invite in, invest in some gold. It's something that you can use your 10% Honoring Account to buy, and then you can wear some of your Honoring. I'm sure you've talked about the Honoring Account earlier in this podcast. It's just a really nice way to diversify, the money that you put aside as an honoring of you, and to wear some of it rather than having it in the bank or have it locked in a vault.

Interviewer:

Absolutely. Absolutely. I haven't done it for a couple of years now. I should go and do it. But yeah, sometimes just go into the shops which sell gold. And I will just, you know, try on stuff. This is like my favorite pastime when I'm in the airport. So there are these gold duty free shops at the airport and that's my favorite way of killing time. You know, I'll go in there and try on some jewelry and I'll wear it, try this, try that, get all the end. It was really interesting that once I did that and then when I went into the flight, they actually didn't have any seats in the economy section,so they had me sit in the business class. Oh I wore that jewelry at the airport. How cool is that?

Julie:

Yeah. That's amazing. If you are willing to have it that easy, and get more into the honoring of you, and collect luxury, why not? It’s funny how there are people who will not try on anything. I have signs in my shop that say, “please try on the jewelry.” And there are people that just won't, they won't touch it. So they just look, they tell children to not touch... but I say, “it's okay, the children can touch it.” There's energy there. They learn from it and they receive from the pieces.

So I encourage everybody to try on something. Doesn't matter what’s the reason, purchase it or not. The pieces love to contribute, all of the gemstones do. That's what it's there for, it wants to contribute. So, will you receive from it? Why not play and dress up and feel like a princess and become that? If we're not willing to play, being a princess or prince, and treating ourselves well, other people won't treat us that way either. But if we are willing to treat ourselves like that, then others will treat us the same. So it's almost like you're training yourself to receive more from others when you contribute to you, and honor you first.

Interviewer:

I mean I can really perceive all that energy of the jewelry, it is just waiting to contribute to us if we are willing to receive it.

Julie:

I get all kinds of customers here, but there are some people who won't receive from the jewelry. And it, it almost makes me angry and I wonder what's that about? It's like an invalidation of the creation, you know?

Interviewer:

So what do you mean by that?

Julie:

There must've been some kind of judgment in their world that they could not have it, or could not touch it, or could not enjoy it, because for some reason… Perhaps they thought they couldn't afford it, and they were cutting off their receiving of even the appreciation. That kind of energy is something that I'm sensitive to, maybe because I created the pieces. But the pieces love to just be admired! It's like our bodies like to be admired. It's just so much more generative, even if the person has no idea and they're not looking to buy anything. And it's not about the purchase of it, it's just the receiving of the energy that it expands all over. I don't know if I'm making any sense. It's just something that I perceive... when people delight in something, it resonates through their world, and it expands everyone around them too.

Interviewer:

So enjoy! The moral of the story enjoy, like looking at flowers or trees, or a garden. The more you enjoy it, the more you're contributing to it and it's contributing to you and it just expands everything. A lot of people, you know, when they go into a store, they are unwilling to try stuff or they're unwilling to appreciate stuff if they don't want to buy, they're just window shopping, you know. And so is that also a way in which you are cutting off their receiving, isn't it?

Julie:

Well, sure. I remember Gary telling a story about working in an antique store and rearranging the pieces so they would sell. And the owner said to him, you can pick out anything you want and you can put it on layaway and pay it off as take as long as you want. He realized that he could have anything. And that just opened him up to, well, “what is it that I truly desire?” Instead of looking at something and looking at a price tag and thinking, “I can't have it,” and cutting off all the possibilities. If you look at things and perceive the energy, you know if you truly desire it or not. And if so, what would it take to create the money? What would it take to have it no matter how long it takes?” It's a very different way of looking at things, rather than prejudging and cutting off your possibilities.

So it's interesting that this came up because I have a creation that's in the works called, “Try it On,” that's taking people out in the world to experience things that maybe they're in resistance to, or maybe they don't think they can do it. I’ll be facilitating and expanding their universe and expanding their receiving and the possibilities for what else can show up.

Interviewer:

See, well, it sounds really amazing. Really amazing. So I have a comments come in via the web, and they say, you can only wear expensive items when you feel 100% safe in your environment. There’s always problems unless you are 100% safe in your environment. And I guess she talking about places where theft is really common, and things like that. So I would say, You know if you are safe, and you have to be aware, you have to use your awareness.

So for example, I wouldn't be able to wear so much jewelry if I am in India. I wouldn't, but here in the UAE I would totally just deck myself up, from top to bottom, from jewelry and go out. And it would be totally okay here. So never ever cut off your awareness, you know?

Julie:

So, regarding feeling safe... how many decisions, how many barriers, how many judgments are in place that keep you from having the awareness of what's going to work and what's not going to work? When we go to Costa Rica for the 7 day events, I bring my diamonds and Tahitian Pearl necklace. I ask the jewelry before I pack, who would like to come? and I bring those pieces.

So if you pay attention to your awareness you will know. If you're walking through a section of town and you're perceiving some weird energy that maybe, there's some people there who might try to steal something, you can always turn on the “killing energy” in your body. You would be this energy that's like, “don't mess with me,” and you'll be fine.

You don't have to be at the effect, even in a not so great area. You could also expand out and ask your jewelry and your car and things like that to be invisible to all the people who would like to steal it. That's another great idea. So you have all the tools and, and of course always, always, always be aware, never turn off your awareness for anything.

And if you think there's going to be a problem, you'll create that. So I would also Poc and Pod everything that has been projected or expected, or anywhere that you've bought into the possibility of running into some situations, and use your awareness.

Interviewer:

So Julie, what other elements are there about, you know, wearing your wealth that you've not spoken about yet?

Julie:

Well, I like to treat every day as a celebration, and that it doesn't mean that you dress up in a party dress every day, but it's like, what if every day were a celebration of living? What if you used your fine China instead of saving it for a special occasion? That's something that I do. I got rid of my everyday dishes when I first heard the concept from Gary about treating every day as the celebration. I use my China every single day and I love it! It makes me feel like a princess, eating off beautiful gold decorated fine China.

Another aspect is letting go of everything that doesn't bring you joy. So whether it's clothing or shoes or furniture or knick knacks or whatever it is, allowing yourself to pair down and get rid of the things that don't bring you joy, so that when you get up and you move through your day, through your home and through your office with all the things that you love, you feel nurtured, supported, inspired to be around them.

I have also been going through clothing and things, anything that looks worn and tattered, even if it's your very favorite things! What would it be like to let yourself let go of some of the things that have gotten holes, or look shabby, so that you sparkle when you show up in the world? It's not to say that you can't have a schlumpy day. Of course everybody likes to do that. But, I like to get up, get dressed, put on jewelry, brush my hair, and be well put together. Cause you never know who you're gonna meet! And if you're treating your body well, kindly, and taking those moments to add a little bit of sparkle here and there, you'd be a different energy in the world, and you attract different things into your life. So even if I'm working at home, I like to get up and get dressed and put everything together.

Many years ago when I started my jewelry business, I worked from home. I didn't have a studio or store yet, but I would get dressed every day instead of wearing pajamas. I would make a new pair of earrings and necklace ensemble every day. It was part of the fun to create something new, something different, something that went with different outfits. And that was the beginning of my expanding my jewelry business. I didn't even realize that just by getting up, designing something new and enjoying it, having fun with it, began creating a celebration of living! And this supported what has now become my retail boutique, wholesale accounts, and people around the world who are loving wearing my designs.

Interviewer:

You know, your whole way of looking at treating every day as a celebration is so beautiful. And I am for sure going to go to my home and look at all the things that I love and look at all the things that I'd also love and let go of them. I remember, when I heard about fine China, when Gary spoke about it. I went and bought a dinner plate and I gave away my old ones and the first day we started eating is my son who was, I think 11 at that point, says, you know what mom? It’s more tasty.

Julie:

When people come over and you serve them on a silver platter, or you have potato chips at a Bars Trade in a cut crystal bowl, it makes people feel served and honored in a way that perhaps they haven't before. To me that's become my everyday expression, including my kids. Even when my kids were little I used my China. I love to wash it, it just so pretty and I get to enjoy it and feel it. It's just such a different experience. It's not the normal, “rushing through and not enjoying your life.”

Part of Gary’s description of using the China and taking time to enjoy everything that you're doing, included him talking about chewing the first several bites of your meal with total appreciation and presence. And he said, when you do that, you find that you eat less because you've totally enjoyed it. You sense all the flavors and it releases the energy in your body so you don't actually need to eat so much. You actually enjoy and have plenty of energy from that. So it all goes hand in hand.

There's also investing in things that light you up and allowing yourself to indulge for you. A lot of people, especially mom’s, put their kids first, and exclude themselves. When I started using these tools of Access Consciousness 16 years ago, I was awestruck. You mean I can actually honor me first? And then the kids?! It was like when you're on an airplane and they say, “put the oxygen mask on first and then assist others.” It made so much sense. There's more of you to give when you're honoring yourself in a way that's really nurturing to your body. You have more energy to give.

Interviewer:

Julie, you speak about creation always from honoring, how you would create your ensembles of a necklace and earrings everyday. I thought that is such a cool way because that is not only a way with, you are expanding your business, what you are going to offer to the world, but it's also you enjoying that beauty as well. So what is that element of creation? What are the energies that it brings up for you ? What are the energies you play with so that you can have that kind of creation all the time?

Julie:

MMM. I guess I've just always been an extremely creative person, and like most humanoids, I don't like to do the same thing over and over and over. You can wear the same thing a little while, but I really like to change things. That, and one of the wonderful things about accessories is, you can wear similar clothes and change your accessories, then the whole outfit is different!

So when you wake up in the morning and you ask, who am I today and what grand and glorious adventure awaits me? an energy comes up. And sometimes the body feels like wearing jeans, and sometimes not. When you're asking your body what it would like, what it would like to wear, what it would like to eat, you start to create with your body an energy and an expression that's different every day. Kind of like the sunset is different every day. It's got similar elements, but it's always slightly different. And so are we.

So I just be in the moment and, if I don't have an element or an energy or something that my body is looking for, I come into my studio and make it!

Interviewer:

I love that, “come into my studio and make it,” wow. What else is possible? So I just wanted to remind all our listeners that you have a chance to win, How to create more Money with Julie. 2 Cds, based on the book Money isn’t the problem, You are. So Julie, is there anything that you would like to leave our listeners with?

Julie:

Well, I would love it if you would each just experiment with stepping into new things, new experiences, perceiving the expansive possibilities of honoring your body with luxury. It doesn't have to be about spending money and wearing expensive things. It's whatever lights your body up. You can take those baby steps and eventually one day go into a store and try on some big, gold, or other beautiful things. Body can have an experience of that too. Why don't you try it... or not? (lol)

What would it be like to engage in those energies, and then be that energy in your life? I wonder what that I create for you?

Interviewer:

Yeah. You know, it's really curious because I actually started going into the shops and wearing the jewelry just because, I had heard when you talked about it, but then I realized how much I enjoyed that, how much my body like that, you know, and before I, I wouldn't wear any jewelry because, I don't know, I just didn't wear any jewelry. But after I started wearing and then, I would actually judge people who wore like really huge stones on their fingers, like here, the Middle East. A lot of the women here will wear lots of rings on their fingers, like five rings on five fingers and they'll have these huge more than half inch big colorful stone. And I would actually judge that. But after I started trying out these different things, I realized that I loved doing that too. And so I went and bought myself this huge blue Topaz, you know, and I wear that ring and anyone who looks at my hand, they just fall in love with it and they, you know. I've had a few old cousins asked me to bring them similar kinds of pieces from here. So it's really interesting.

Very, very interesting for me to see how my body reaches for all those blue stones. So that was really fun and it's fun for me to go try on different things and I've definitely haven't done it for a long time, so I'm definitely going this weekend.

Julie:

An awareness about these larger gemstones is coming to me regarding royalty. Kings and Queens, being wealthy and having to rule the land, that has to be an energetic demand on their bodies. So wearing large gemstones likely contributes to their profitability of being a great leader.

So what if we were all willing to be a great leader of our own lives and receive the contribution that the gemstones, that come from the earth, can be to us?

Interviewer:

Well, Julie, you clearly just opened up this whole new world and possibilities with luxury and jewelry and opulence in me, and listening to you talk, it's like how you are totally embodying that and I'd like to have that too. Awesome!

So thank you so much for being here and contributing and showing us the energy of what is it like to live each day as a celebration. Thank you so much Julie, and thank you everyone, to each one of our listeners, thank you for coming live on the call. Thanks, Julie. Thank you so much.

Julie:

Thank you!
