This month I injected our series with some awesome affirmations from Sati creator, Patricia Moreno, and also with some real and recent life experience. It’s all about living a limitless life.
I’ve got some self-constructed limitations and they come in the form of past experience.
Last week I was on my way to Vegas. Ahh, the memories.
I lived there for three years (2001-2004) and fought as a professional boxer, made my living as a bartender. I returned to Mpls, MN. because fighting wasn’t working out the way I’d planned and I started to unravel.
I began to take misguided action for immediate gratification in the form of gambling. My only way out was…well, OUT!
Now it’s 8yrs later. I’m living in the present. I have a HUGE opportunity to present my ‘i am initiative’ girls program at a conference in Las Vegas.
I jumped at the chance but then a week before my travel date I started to feel uneasy about visiting old memories and past failures.
Only hours before my flight I was second guessing my trip and wished I hadn’t committed to speaking at the conference.
With a nervous stomach I flew and upon my arrival to the hotel I experienced an ‘expected’ limitation.
I say expected because the story of my past is that Vegas was my financial unraveling and of course I would have no other experience than the one I believed to be true.
Without an ounce of money played on the blackjack table, my credit card was declined.
I was denied access to my hotel.
Whew! I had just deposited money in my bank account but all of it was pending.
Coupled with other “pending” deductions that were actually showing up I had a negative balance and the pending deposits would not be available for another 24 hours…(all this according to a 60 minute phone call with my bank) leaving me homeless without a place to stay for the night.
Here I am again. A failure. In the hole. Unable to provide for myself. Even though this wasn’t because I had misused my money by gambling it still brought up all my old stuff.
All my limitations.
I was a mess and ready to fly back to Mpls. without presenting at the conference.
“Just get me out of this horrible, energy sucking town”, I thought.
Here’s where I went wrong.
I hadn’t cleared my path of beliefs and stories of my past experience in Vegas.
Before my trip I was really dreading going back to Vegas. I wasn’t focusing on the positive aspect of sharing my passion for teaching girls inside out self-defense with educators at the conference.
I believed I would find bad ‘juju’ in LV…guess what? I found it. I forgot that what I seek is what I find.
I didn’t practice unshakeable faith that miracles are taking place in my life right now (I saw these miracles happen once I opened to accepting them).
I wasn’t grateful for the opportunity to be there and share my message with others.
I was far from ready to receive my inheritance of abundance.
Here’s where I went right.
After the years of work I’ve done in this arena (knowing-trusting-loving-myself) I faltered momentarily but then called my supportive hubby and he transfered funds to my account so I could secure my hotel room.
I got set up in my room and immediately went to work on aligning myself with my desired state of being (inspiration) by calling my best cheerleader (dad) and within 10 minutes I felt better.
I rocked out my presentation the next day- I actually shared this story with all of them as a part of my presentation– and because I used my limitations to my advantage in speaking about them, I have multiple offers to present my ‘i am initiative’ girls program around the country.
What would have happened had I not released my old beliefs and limitations?
I would not have received a limitless offering of teaching my passion to others.
And still, I have a TON of limitations to release.
For now I’m standing proud in this snow dive that turned into a delicious snow cone.
I went from one of my worst moments to living my best self.
I’m still impressed by my turn-around but I give HUGE props to my hubby for bailing me out of the negative bank balance so I could secure my hotel room and my dad for being my unconditional cheerleader.
This month in Sati we are releasing our limitations so that we may live a limitless life.
Today I commit
To clearing my path
When I focus on the positive
The positive is possible
I expand my mind
What I seek is what I find
Limitations are released
Breakthroughs are happening
I have unshakeable faith
Miracles are taking place
I joyfully give
I willingly receive
Abundance is my inheritance
I expect it
I accept it
I am grateful
It is done!
I’d love to hear from you. What is your take from this series and how are you creating a limitless life for yourself?
