“Yesterday I was clever so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I’m changing myself.” – Rumi
She got scammed out of $42,000 which was stolen straight from her bank account.
The bank was telling her that it was her fault for clicking on that link and inputting her login details, and she wasn’t going to get that money back. Ever.
I suspected there was a belief block sitting at the heart of this ‘bad luck’… there often is.
As I took her through a process I often use with my coaching clients to uncover “what’s really going on here?” something surprising came up…
She’d been 10 when she looked over her Mom’s shoulder and saw the account balance on the screen.
It said $20.
Her Mom had just taken $20 out so they could get something to eat. And that’s when she realized… just how close to the edge they were living.
Prior to that moment, she didn’t know because her Mom was good at hiding her financial anxiety. But when she saw that bank balance, she really grasped it. They were not okay. They were living on, or possibly even below, the poverty line.
In that moment, she stopped being a child. In that moment, she started worrying about money and wondering if there would ever be enough.
Once her eyes were opened, she started to see all the evidence she’d previously been oblivious to – in their clothes, in where they lived, in what they ate…
They were poor. And suddenly, she was scared.
At the tender age of 10, she installed a strong but very limiting belief: there is not enough.
It would be over 40 years later before she got tired of the exhausting ways this block was showing up in her life, over and over again, and came to me for help.
The process I took her through to release it, once we’d identified the block, only took about 15 minutes.
Soon after that, the bank called. They’d decided to reimburse her the $42,000. All of it. It hit her account the next day.
That’s just the first tangible result of her internal shift. There will be more, I know this from experience.
Because, the release comes before the increase.
