I grew up amidst scarcity consciousness, where criticizing, condemning, complaining, blaming, dissatisfaction, fear, powerlessness, was the day-to-day experience. I grew up feeling and believing I was not good enough, not worthy of love, not deserving of abundance. I grew up feeling less than, not approved of, and not accepted as a friend by the rich kids.
Although I had big dreams, my inferior self-image inevitably sabotaged my efforts because of the underlying fear that no matter what I did, I was doomed to scarcity. So, I tried harder, worked 7 days a week for years, controlling every facet of my life and business. You guessed it. Crickets.
It was only after I cleared and transcended the triggers of the past, focused on aligning my energy vibration with my soul essence, and surrendered control of the how to the Universe that my business turned around. Even better, since letting go of control and being instead of doing, I feel at peace, grateful and I delight in seeing my desires manifest right before my eyes.
