In 1999, when I received my certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy, and learned about EFT, I was full of excitement and passion and determination. I wanted my own practice, and I was certain I would be successful. I placed my ad in the yellow pages and alternative healing publications, and the clients almost immediately started coming. I was still working my full-time job, but starting to get busy so a year later I jumped off the precipice, quit the job and went full steam ahead on my business.
It was slow at first, but I had many steady clients with whom I loved working and were making good progress. I took advantage of taking several trainings with Gary Craig to hone my tapping skills, and continued to have success with the clients I had, thinking the word would eventually get out about how great I was.
But, although I was doing great work, feeling good about helping people, I wasn’t making enough money to cover expenses. I wasn’t charging what I was worth, often giving discounts to people who needed help but “couldn’t afford” me. I was supplementing my work with my savings account. Then my 401k. Then that too was gone. I panicked. I had nightmares. I couldn’t sleep, thinking about how I was going to keep going. All I thought about was how to get more money. I took seminars. I read books. I studied the Law of Attraction, Napoleon Hill, Frederic Lehrman, Louise Hay, and many others. I did my affirmations. I posted notes around my house. I tapped. Nothing helped. I was staring bankruptcy in the face and I didn’t like it. Finally, I had to face defeat and find…a job! Ugh. It was demeaning. Demoralizing. I felt humiliated, angry, sad. I couldn’t understand why those things I believed in didn’t work for me.
Working full-time I continued to tap on my self, the situation, and started to come out of my debt and depression. I got myself to a financial place that was better than where I started. I was manifesting promotions, raises, and a healthier savings account. I was even able to buy a new car, and pay it off. It thrilled me to watch my credit score go back up.
In 2012, I brought my practice out of hibernation. I learned there are new rules around marketing, which I admit I’m still learning. But I’ve also learned something else.
I learned that unless you uncover the hidden beliefs and paradigms that are running through your nervous system, and CLEAR them, all the affirmations and abundance work in the Universe won’t live up to their full promise. You have to do the inner work to get the outer results.
Why are the outer results so important? Because I believe there has been no time in this planet’s history when there was more need for humans to come forward and be of service. The world cries out for healing. And since you’ve read this far, you are one of those healers being called.
