It is never about “getting” it is about “sharing and helping each other.”
No matter WHAT you have created, ultimately it is people spreading by word of mouth with their friends, loved ones, colleagues and even strangers the great thing (your project) they have discovered and honestly recommend.
It is about creating honest relationships with those whom you genuinely admire.
It is so important that people know WHY you are contacting THEM to either give you an endorsement or help you spread the word about what you are doing.
In short, you are contacting them hopefully because you are sincerely taken aback, or truly admire their work, and when you let them know this – they will either feel your sincerity or feel your cold ulterior motives.
People who have been around in any industry for a long time get to know their colleagues. Other spiritual and relationship authors are NEVER my “competition” quite to the contrary, I endorse THEIR work – why? Because I honestly love it and it is worthy of an endorsement.
Meeting or connecting with the people who will support you with your efforts expect that you, in turn, will support them as well.
You are sharing support, not just selling your latest creation.
If you come across as only looking out for your own personal interest, the first thing the person reading your email, or hearing your message will be a prompt DELETE.
Many people have come to me, typically people I did not know at all, asking for MY endorsement. WHY? They never told me why, they were only too concerned with what they could GET rather than how they could SHARE.
If is all about HONESTLY sharing from the heart! It is about helping each other – SINCERELY. It is about making a genuine positive difference in this world, and when that is your motive, and the person you are approaching learns WHY you admire THEIR work, why you would even want their name associated with your venture, that must be spelled out FIRST.
This then opens the heart of the person you are contacting. Oh, he’s familiar with MY work. OK, I’ll continue reading this email. But it MUST be GENUINE.
People do have six senses. We all know truth when we come across it, additionally, we all know BS when we come across it as well. People who have devoted their lives to make a difference are more than happy (at least I am) to help someone whose motives are pure. I lend support, some advice, and even an endorsement without the person even asking for it.
If the number one thing people want to know is to get as much as they can out of you, you will feel their insincerity, and they will most likely receive next to nothing as a result.
Cooperating WITH your colleagues to make this world a better place is at the heart of Spiritual Endorsements. You respect each others work. You become happy to help the new kid on the block with a boost. Why? Because you were once the new kid on the block and needed some genuine support to launch what you are creating.
Personally, I love helping newbies rise. It brings my heart great joy. However, when I receive emails that are so ego-centered, only seeking to take and never seeking to share, then those emails quickly get deleted because the energy behind them is not pure or filled with loving intentions.
Here below are some endorsements from people whose work and contributions I honestly love. I approached them from my heart, AND I helped them spread the word about what they were doing as well. The most common way was adding something they were doing to my newsletter and sharing a link to THEIR project, just to reciprocate, and without them even knowing about it.
So now I am starting a global team of spiritual heart-centered people who are thrilled to share each others ventures, just for the sake of loving and sharing. In this way everyone benefits, and everyone who is involved is on the same wavelength. Our energy matches – and it is this energy, filled with love, that carries the most power behind long term spiritual success.

Build your relationships authentically.
Create something that really makes a difference and not just a dollar. Because when you do make a difference the dollars naturally come your way via a return of your pure energy and motives. This is the universe’s way of giving you a wink, and shining success upon you because you cared enough to make a difference for others.
