Why change is your friend!

“We should never wait for science to give us permission to do the uncommon; if we do, then we are turning science into another religion. We should be brave enough to contemplate our lives, do what we thought was “outside the box”, and do it repeatedly. When we do that, we are on our way to a greater level of personal power.”

Humans do not like change. Change is the unknown and the unknown is scary for we can not control with certainty what will happen. Therefore, change is the opposite of comfort - it is stressful and anxiety inducing. How many times did I wait until my back was to the wall to quit or change jobs, romantic relationships or toxic friendships and family members. I used my past investment in effort and time in things I had outgrown to justify staying the course. If only I waited or tried something different one more time maybe things will change on their own. Yet my body and heart kept screaming to my mind that all my rationalizations will be prove to be in vain sooner or later for the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results.

“It seems like human nature is such that we balk at changing until things get really bad and we are so uncomfortable that we can no longer go on with business as usual.”

I have been on a shedding journey since 2018. First I shed my old job where I was gaslit by management for years. Then I shed my family for a period of time because they were not being supportive of my choices. Next, I shed my unsupportive life partner of nine years. All this happened in the span of a year. As each domino fell, I felt lighter and lighter. Without even realizing it, I was opening up space for new experiences, people and opportunities. I got a new job and career path where I met my future business partner with whom I started a company with. Being in charge of my own destiny as a CEO of my own start up already felt so much more in alignment with my personality and path. I started owning my leadership qualities and people would notice my passion shine through without me even trying - it is just who I was. It was my new “state of being”

“Once you feel the way you think, you begin to think the way you feel. This continuous cycle creates a feedback loop called a “state of being””

I didn’t stop there. Once I understood the power of letting go, I was able to recognize when the energy around me had changed and wasn’t afraid to embrace it. When my start up no longer made sense financially and I was in a role that allowed me to work remotely, I transcended the COVID rut and became a digital nomad. I packed up my life and distilled my material baggage to a bare minimum. I packed minimally and embarked on a four month trip through Mexico and I have been a digital nomad for the last three years. In the process, I found out who my real friends are and lost many along the way as I was evolving into the best version of myself, the one that was most aligned to who I was always meant to be. Over time I realized that I was living the process of manifestation. As I changed my environment and mindset, my reality changed in turn.

“To change any aspect of your life you must transcend it. We have moved from selfish to selfless…When you are living in survival, you’re trying to control or force and outcome; that’s what the ego does. When you’re living in the elevated emotion of creation, you feel so lifted that you would never try to analyze how or when a chosen destiny will arrive. You trust that it will happen because you have already experienced it in mind and body - in thought and feeling. You know that it will, because you feel connected to something greater. You are in a state of gratitude because you feel like it’s already happened.”

Without knowing it, I have used hypnosis and manifestation since I was young. I spent my youth moving between countries as my father worked overseas as an engineer. By the age of 17, I had learn to speak and write six languages. In order to cope with so much change and learning, I had to learn to anchor myself within myself. No one guided me, therapy wasn’t a concept boomer parents would consider. Lucky for me, I was always drawn to Eastern and ancient philosophies. I would watch martial arts movies and admire the monks’ and warriors’ silent power of concentration and dedication to the mastery of their craft. The only way to transcend to mastery was to elevate mind over matter. I used the power of my mind to reprogram my body to deliver when I needed it to. No drugs necessary, just belief, focus and action aligned in the pursuit of the same goal. And it never ever failed: not at school, not when I sued a toxic employer and won, not when I changed careers three times, not even when I travelled as a single female to forty countries and counting....

“You are mindful matter. You are a consciousness using a body and a brain to express different levels of mind….When we liberate the body emotionally, we close the gap. When we close the gap, we release the energy that was once used to produce it. With that energy we now have the material we can use to create a new life.”
