Yesterday, I had a 5-hour kettlebell class. We also had a 2-hour break after the first three hours.
After the class, my teacher (Zenkahuna on YouTube ~ you “may” see me there after the weekend when he returns from the Rancho and puts up the vids) said that he wants to do this 3 more times this year (at $250 times each) and for two hours every month he has a weekend with his students (at $100 each) equaling $1800 for the year.
Immediately my lil monkey starts gibbering in my ear that we can’t do this. Of course we can! That’s ridiculous! lol
I currently have more than enough money to do that if I don’t make another dime yet, it goes to show, old monkey mind habits die hard.
Most of my life it was hard for me to understand that, I’ve always had money. Even when I got fired from my jobs (which was often because I always thought I could run the business better than they could) I’d KNOW I’d have a job within 2 weeks (which I always did) and I ALWAYS had funds to survive in between.
I was going to say it wasn’t until I worked outside, away from the “bosses” that I actually kept jobs for longer than 3 months but, that isn’t true. I worked for one chiropractor for about 5 years until he injured (and failed to take care of) his arm and sold his practice to a very unscrupulous guy who was committing insurance fraud. Being able to do that proved to me how much I’d changed and let others run their own businesses.
Anyway, about abundance.
Yesterday, instead of driving, I got to ride with someone. It gave me a chance to let my mind wander and I was thinking about money.
Many times in the past I realized I was hanging on to my last $20. It actually WASN’T my last $20 because I ALWAYS had funds in the bank but, for me, that wasn’t there. That money was my security and I held onto it for dear life, again stopping the flow and circulation.
So, I strangled that $20 until I really needed to purchase something and, you know what? More came in! Before that, I had so much fear around giving up that $20 and then HAVING to dip into my savings that, I blocked the energy flow.
Yesterday, as I got to be the passenger, I was thinking about abundance and flow.
Think of two people and a doorway. One wants to go out (the $20 I DID have) and, another wants to come in (the abundance I wasn’t open to, although, I’d say I was). One is trying to go out while the other is coming in resulting in blockage or stagnation.
Solution, the one coming in steps aside, so the one going out can go out, then the one coming in can come in. That’s called circulation!
Consider circulating your money, not spending it. Look at the last 3 letters of the word “spend”. The circulation stops! That’s what happens when we hoard our money as well, Now, I’m not saying go out and blow it! That’s sp”end”ing, instead of circulating. What I am saying is, let go of the fear of letting it go! When you strangle it, it can’t flow. I know.
Remember, live bodaciously and always, celebrate your potential ~
p.s. Right after I wrote this, one of my very long time clients called. He’s been coming VERY sporadically ~ maybe, once a month. Today, he called and is setting up two appointments a month. Nice way to begin the new year, eh?
