Recently, I did work for someone over the course of about 5 weeks and didn’t get paid for it. In fact, the person told me he doesn’t have the money to pay me at all or ever.
Upon hearing this, I was infuriated. It felt wrong. It felt bad. I was pissed.
We all encounter situations that are Less-Than-Desirable. It’s not what we planned; it’s inconvenient. It throws us off our alignment and balance. It’s part of our human experience.
But the above mentioned experience taught me that I can look at a Less-Than-Desirable circumstance and let it help me create a vision for What It Is That I Want.
When I chose to “let go” of that job and the fearful thoughts I had about losing payment, I created space for something more desirable. I made a conscious choice to say out loud, “the money will replace itself” and “money finds me.” They are affirmations that have served me well over the years, and I trust them, which is what makes them work.
Within 48 hours, I found out that I had a lump sum of money coming to me from an unexpected source that was over half of what I was owed by my previous employer. Not only that, I was unexpectedly offered another gig. And I have ZERO doubt that the rest of the money will be made up shortly, with no extra effort needed on my part.
It’s really incredible what can happen if you simply let go of thoughts or circumstances that aren’t serving you, and create a space for what does. That takes a lot of trust, I know, especially when it’s a source of income. But I firmly believe the things you REALLY want lie in the space that is currently occupied by the things you don’t.
One of my favorite things to do is look for evidence in my day-to-day life that proves that the more I trust it, the more the universe supports me. Have you ever decided to trust and let go? Were you taken care of? I’d love to know.
