How Being Broke Can Feel Richer Than Ever

I'm broke.

OK, not totally broke. But broker than I have been in a while.

And yes, I am abundantly blessed overall, but today we are talking down and dirty about the money!

If you read my previous post "Why I Broke Up With My Coach" you learned that I created a coaching program that was a BUST following a "one size-fits all" model recommended by my business coach.

And then in "Why I Traveled 8000 Miles to Find Myself" I shared how disconnected with myself I became, because I majorly postponed all of the self-care and spiritual practices that give me life and give my work purpose.

So, in this post we pick up where I left off.

I came home from a whirlwind trip around the world, with no sales from my busted, misaligned program and all of my energy depleted.

I had lost myself...and then found myself...and now it was time to rebuild myself.

I knew I needed to find my way back, but couldn't bring myself to create any new products for fear that they would be out of alignment too and just deepen my disconnect.

I had to kick my butt into gear and the only way I knew to do that was to stop creating, stop taking action and to be still.

I was SO desperately craving this, since I had been in totally alpha/ego over-drive for months chasing my BIG MONEY dreams. Not once did I slow down enough to register if I liked what I was creating and whether it was in alignment with my purpose.

Sometimes we have to go back to the basics in order to find our inspiration in life, so that's what I did.

I decided that I was not going to focus on any new business development. I wasn't going to create anything, launch anything or sell anything. I was just going to serve my existing clients and otherwise create spaciousness for me to focus on my self-care and spiritual practices.

I was going to get my groove back and get ME back - I didn't care if I was going to be broke!

I knew it was temporary and that I could always make money. I had to do this now, or else I would get too far off track.

I heard the SOS call loud and clear.

I was going to rescue myself.

Let the Practical Spirituality Bootcamp begin...here was my remedy...if you're feeling "off" anywhere in your own life, try these steps to realign yourself too:

I took the time to set up a really beautiful office space and to include my prayer and meditation altar in the room.

I scheduled daily prayer, meditation and journal writing.

I got a massage and got my hair did.

I hung out with all my girlfriends - drank margaritas and danced all night.

I spent time with my man talking about my journey and what kind of support I needed.

Every month, my revenue dipped, but the balance in my self-love account was BOOMING!

I began to get inspired again about creating a new offering - one that would fuse my previous program with all the insights and teachings I learned from this journey.

But I wasn't ready yet...I still needed time to receive...and so I went off the grid.

Stay tuned for my next post "My 30 Day Adventure Off The Grid" to read what happened next in my adventure back to myself!
