Access Consciousness® Certified Facilitator
When I was 16, I worked for a Sony Centre that sold the latest in high-tech entertainment devices. After working there for a few months, they said that I could choose anything from the store and pay it back from my wages each week! I will never forget the joy it gave me taking home the latest state-of-the-art TV and gifting it to my family. We had an old black and white TV which we had to hit to stop the picture blurring. I remember that the new TV changed the whole energy in the house. I was very proud and set out to continue adding and changing things in that house and our lives. At the time, we had no fridge, so I bought a fridge freezer. We also had no phone, so I bought a phone and every time it rang I heard a sound of wealth!
I knew that when I left home, I was choosing to have beautiful things in my life.
I didn’t cognitively know at the time that beauty expands the space we be. Beauty can expand your very being as can wealth if you allow it. Even at that time, I could perceive how wealth and beauty affected each member of my family. My father was disdainful, and my mother loved it and felt guilty. My sister liked it, and my brother was so full of trauma, he hardly noticed that his surroundings were changing. I learned that I loved changing the energy of spaces and inviting people to greater!
When you admire and are grateful for places, people, and things, you contribute energy to them and, in return, receive more from them. A piece of furniture, food, a body – they become more.
Over 20 years ago, I chose to do a Diploma in Interior Design and I decided that after all the math and making rooms and furniture out of cardboard that I did not want to do it as a profession.
However, over the years, I’ve helped friends with their living spaces and lives, and they have asked me why, if I love it so much, did I not do more of it! So I have started! My first project is right now as I write this blog! And I am absolutely loving it! When I look back, I wonder whose reality I based that decision on. At university, I had heard talk about not wanting to deal with demanding clients, amongst other things. And then I did not do well with maths at school and bought that I would hate the stress that making mistakes would bring about. In fact, I decided that I would mess up!
So let me talk a little bit about decisions. From my own experience you have talked about above, it limits us! It blinds you. For instance, you may decide to give up something that is fun for you and that you love because you were not making money with it. Or more frequently, somebody tells you it is not talking to you anywhere, so you decide they are right.
Now here is the strange thing I have discovered fun is the element of wealth. Wealth isn’t just more money in your bank account; it is a joyous life.
So I would suggest if you would like more wealth look at brings you joy. Be willing to fail. All those that have succeeded in the past have had countless failures. Inventors, scientists, authors, artists, entrepreneurs such as Alexander Graham Bell, Richard Branson, J.K. Rowling, and many others all had failures and rejections. They all kept going because it brought them joy.
What brings you joy that you could choose today?
