How did My Journey with MAP begin? Part I
About two and a half years ago, a very special friend, Linda, sent me an e-book and urged me to read it and tell her what I think. Her message sounded exciting. She told me that she had swallowed down the book in just one night. I felt this meant something.
But wouldn’t it have been Linda, and wouldn’t she have made her message so urgently, I would probably have saved the e-book copy in a folder and forgotten about it for a while. There was so much going on in my life at that time that sometimes it was hard for me to decide what was really the most important thing to choose to do.
Fortunately, Linda’s message kind of dragged me into this book. So I started to scroll through it right away, checking its structure and how long it was. I wondered: How much time would cost to read it? Did I really have that time to read it right now? I hesitated.
First off, I thought that the “Abundance On Demand” was one more of the numerous free e-books you can find online about how to manifest things using the Law Of Attraction. Because the book was longer than about 20, 25 pages, – what the length of those books usually is – I decided to give it a shot and see if it is worth continuing reading.
My first impression of the book was that it was fun to read and that it was written very openly, friendly, and with much care. I felt invited to continue. Moreover, I became curious. I noticed that the book was capturing me more and more.
Already after the first 16 pages, I understood how I manifested the money flow in my life, my entire significant experiences, and my teachings. I understood that, yes, I inherited programs from my family and from society.
However, I could also see very clearly that I programmed myself to think, feel and act in a certain way. In addition, I did not only manifest it this way because of my learning and my experiences! My learning and my experiences were shaped in a certain way because I did program myself in this way.
My Most Unexpected Finding
The really crazy thing was, to suddenly understand that the values I have chosen for my life and on which I oriented myself pretty much, in fact, were limiting my ability to create a serious and constant money flow in a very significant way.
And of course, without money, many things are not so easy to access. Right?
So, let us talk about money! Or, how much effort I put into discouraging money to come into my hands.
If you wonder, why I wondered so much about my sudden shortcut in the understanding of my patterns, then I will tell you that I’m working on myself very intensely for about 25 years. I’m a life coach, a long-term meditator, and educated in Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) for about seven years. For about one year I assisted in the framework of Systemic Family Constellation and watched many different patterns unfolding during those sessions. I’m also certified as a hypnotist and hypnosis coach and understand and use the hypnotic language after Milton Erickson.
All of those educational programs have trained me in mindfulness, being in touch with myself, being sensitive to what I think and feel, how I use my language, and what frequencies of energy I’m catching from and radiating into my environment.
Each of those pieces of training asks you to work hard on yourself, up to 80 percent of the learning is about yourself. You get a chance to understand how you create your day after day experiences. And, you learn how to improve wherever you desire improvement. You also need to clean out your old luggage and purify yourself to support clients by their own issues and not work on your own hidden agendas.
Yes, I thought I did my homework well. But did I really do my homework regarding the abundance of money in my life?
The first stroke came from for me an unexpected direction, from Toni Robins. I never worked with Toni Robins' approach, and there it was where it started to be very interesting for me.
Analyzing his treasure of experiences as a coach, Toni Robins extracted a handful of values that are focused on and that are representing the basic needs of each person.
Five Values and Their Ranking
The values are certainty, uncertainty, variety, love and connection, and significance. How the values are ranked, is completely individual and depends on the experiences and preferences of a single person.
I started to do the process to find out what my values are and what their order looks like. I didn’t expect any really new or interesting findings for in my NLP training I worked through all of my values several times. But I should become surprised. Looking at these values, especially from the perspective of attracting money created one “aha” after another. The biggest surprise was that I never really analyzed my values and my creating patterns in relation to money. Why? Money was never important to me.
Have you become curious? I hope so! I also hope you enjoyed the first piece of my MAP process! The next one will come next week.
Please, let me know what you think about it. And maybe you like to try? In every case, please take a couple of minutes and give me feedback on what do you think right now, and if you already have some interesting findings regarding your own creation!
If you have any questions, please, write them down and send them also! I would love to support you on your way! Aloha and Namaste!
