For the past year, I have been working three part-time jobs while creating my entrepreneurial business on the side. I was a nutritionist at a weight loss clinic, a sales associate at a popular retail store, and a barre fitness instructor at Mind Body Barre . It’s been a really big year for me personally and professionally and I’ve been learning a lot about myself and the abundance that is available to me (and all of us!) at all times.
Over the past two months, I have started coaching and it has changed my life in so many ways. These women and their commitment to their inner work inspires me so much, and I am so in love with helping them uncover their inner soul sister. The healing that occurs in our sessions is miraculous. It is also speeding up my own healing journey. As we help others heal, stuff comes up for us too and we have to get to work on healing that area of our lives. Not many coaches are transparent about that, and it’s so important to be…because we’re all heading to the same destination…we’re just at different stops along the way.
Last week, I got the hit to leave both my retail job and my position at the weight loss clinic. The feeling was scary and liberating at the same time. Scary because I would be leaving behind a steady paycheck (the visual confirmation that I would be financially taken care of) and liberating because I would be freeing myself from the chains of working in environments that are not aligned with my internal values.
To be honest, I was staying at both jobs because of the steady paycheck. It is comforting to know that I can receive a steady income (albeit, a small one). Last week, I kept getting the same message: “It’s time to go.”
So, I chilled out, sat in a meditation, and asked for a visual sign that it really was time to go. Then, I got in my car and saw the number 777 on three different cars’ license plates within one minute. The number 777 is a message from the Universe that you are on the right path and are living and serving your Divine life purpose. That was all I needed. I gave my notice that day!
Now, I’m working on amping up my faith muscle even more. It’s easy to have faith in things you can see and measure, right? But the realtask comes when you are called to have faith in the unseen. I can’t see what my business will look like a week from now or a year from now. I have no clue how I’m going to support myself – but I just know that I am supported. I have more faith in miracles that I do in failure.
For the majority of our lives, we expect failure instead of expecting miracles. After the first few days of being high on the courage I possessed to leave my security blanket jobs, my ego popped in with the ‘what ifs.’ “What if you can’t pay your rent and all of your bills?” “What if you don’t get any clients and you go broke?” “What if you fail and you have to go back to being a slave to other people?” (I know that’s a tad dramatic but it’s really how I felt).
I sat my ass down, breathed, and asked for Spirit to enter in. Immediately, I heard my inner guide say, “Stop expecting failure and start expecting miracles.”
Truth bomb? I think so.
In every situation, we have a choice. We can listen to the rest of the world’s mumbo jumbo and expect that we will not be taken care of or we can expect miracles and trust that, as long as our intentions are aligned with service and we are having that constant contact with our inner guide, that all is taken care of. Life flows so naturally and effortlessly when we have faith in miracles. Why? Because we get out of the way. We stop being the roadblock on our own journey and let Spirit take the wheel. We become Spirit’s co-pilot and all it to communicate to us through our inner guide, and we’re totally hooked up.
Am I still scared? To be honest, I am. It’s a daily process right now but I am so committed to expecting miracles and I deeply believe in them because I experience them every day. Remember that a miracles is just a shift in perception – a mental choice to think with love over fear. And I am committed to miracles being my only way of thinking. So, I will continue to expect them and follow my inner guide. I will continue to have faith in love and miracles. I will continue to pave the way for love and miracles because if I can do it, so can you.
