I came upon a personal crisis that had to do with money. This is a big fear to many and we have long term patterns regarding this. I have worked to shift my thinking on abundance of wealth on all levels so this was a true test. We all get afraid when we feel lack or don't see a solution to any challenge. Being a single woman, just getting my own place which is a stretch financially, creating a new career, I am definitely in the bold move club. I knew it was the next step of empowerment so went for it knowing that sometimes you just leap and see if your spirit of faith and trust supports you.
I am reaping the many benefits of my own space but was challenged when expected money didn't flow in. I had a back up plan so I thought, "I can do this." Then Monday morning, the back up plan had an unusual occurrence that made it not work. Normally, I have a large cash stash but the move has it a tad low. I went into panic, fear and the usual self questioning that occurs in pattern especially in crisis. I was smart enough to notice and observe and thought, "I was through with this wasn't I?" I was being tested to my resolve, I knew that and my being didn't want to go into the pattern of fear. I redirected my thought quickly and knew I would be over this in a few days. I felt better but my mind started frantically searching for a solution.
When frantic is around even in your mind, you are still in panic so I decided to use my tools. First I held my finger, a Jin Shin technique for fear to calm your nervous system. Then I decided to meditate to see if solution could come in through connecting with my highest self or atleast calm me down. Earilier a wealthy friend had mis-texted me and I was kind of annoyed for it was meant for another. During meditation, I realized this was no accident for he was wealthy, I was feeling money pressure. Hmmm! I stepped into his energy field of money and felt, i got this. I pretended I was him, felt being a billionaire and suddenly, my issue seemed small. This is a power of using the imagination. A clue as to how to get above what was appearing as a panic.
This shifted me to calmer waters and I thought,"I have all day to find a solution and truly believed one would come". I also shared my fear with others knowing that help comes from others in advice, support or often just from naming your fear. Later in the day, a solution came in, one offered support. A part of me wanted to have some miracle greater come in, where I did it all by myself. I had to redirect and instead of feeling bad for needing assistance, consider this works. Not how I wanted something different rather see the solutions appeared. Give up the " oh you need help and that makes you weak "thinking! I have helped many others and sometimes that is the miracle. God works through others. It was a solution for the moment . I relaxed.
Then along came yet another event that made the financial situation stressed again. " Your kidding me!!" An error from a supplier created an added layer to the scene. I started to go back into the fear. I recovered quickly though, for the stuff I did earlier, remembering my power. Remembering, I always make it somehow. I just kept saying you can do this. Even though they seemed like words, I just kept saying them. I kind of giggled at it though, saved one minute then challenged again. I consider this is the work of the Lord o Karma! Can you really keep above your pattern?
It was kind of funny for I saved the first situation, felt good and then along came another. It was truly a lesson in watching myself, my emotions, thinking and physical sense. Crisis is like that, it keeps coming and that is why it is a crisis. Really being aware and observing yourself is truly the path. Although you start in your repetitive thinking, you can stop it sooner, use tool after tool til you calm down. Then you don't ruin your week just maybe a few hours. You also stop the energy of swirling down before yet another thing comes in. Energy is like that, it attracts to the same. That's why we often run into slew of bad things. The energy collects about the same energy.
Crisis is filled with cortisol and adrenaline. it really effects our physical state which effects our mental and emotional state. At moments we can be really clear, like in an emergency which is what adrenaline is for. But only for a bit. When we extend it to hours or days, we start to get foggy, confused, tired, agitated and disempowered. It can become a chronic state of how we move and it is not clear so solution seems far off.
I am still finding my way through this untangle but it was averted, my pattern shifted sooner and I walk through the rest of the details. Nobody likes to challenge themselves in any area. This could of been a health crisis, an emotional crisis, any of them all call us to step into our power. Money is the perfect one for me as I am stepping into a different level of financial responsibility.
Later that day, I found a misplaced $100 bill. Cash makes me feel powerful. It was also another layer to this "crisis". How could I lose a big bill? Well after all this work, shifting my state, calming down, suddenly it appeared. That chuckled me. It gave me this surge of power. Yes you got this girl! Step by step we ascend. It really is a mental game and playing with energy, mind and action. I did it. Found my stash to begin again, solved my issue, had a playful giggle at my fear and danced in celebration for the $100 bill.
