"Get up. Put your purple pants on and take a walk on The Strip," I heard the still small voice whisper with persistency just before my 5 am awakening. It was May 19, 2014, eleven days before the ending of my part-time, temporary teaching assignment. Nearly seven years had passed since I left my high school teaching position to enter the heart of education--education of the heart. My entire life savings, and then some, had been spent on failed attempts to launch my passion's purpose. First, through a non-profit in Oregon and then an LLC in Arizona. After months of focused job searches in Arizona, Oregon and Nevada, on March 3rd, I put the remains of my estate into a 10' x 10' storage unit in Sedona, Arizona. A friend sent me money for gas, and I drove 20 hours to Oregon where I had family and friends who could offer me room and board.
In early April, I received a phone call from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas regarding a part-time job that I had applied for three months earlier. There was no interview. Merely, an inquiry, "Do you still want the job? Can you come in for orientation on April 24th and start training on the 25th?" Finally, an open window to the next chapter I had been waiting. On April 21, 2014, I moved my things from Sedona, knowing I had been called to Vegas for purpose and reason. After over thirty years of engaging, enlightening and empowering the highest potential in others, for the first time in seven years, I had a steady job with scheduled hours and an inward flow of money--at least for five weeks.
In early April, moments after a passionate interaction with my mother that resulted in a deep vibrational clearly, I received a phone call from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas regarding a part-time job that I had applied for three months earlier. There was no interview. Merely, an inquiry, "Do you still want the job? Can you come in for orientation on April 24th and start training on the 25th?" Finally, there was an open window to the next chapter of my life. After over thirty years of engaging, enlightening and empowering the highest potential in others, for the first time in seven years, I had a job with scheduled hours that paid me money for my professional service--at least for five weeks.
As I approached the final weeks of my assignment, I observed the rise and fall of fear. Once again, I found myself facing the unknown. I had dedicated my life to living thee highest potential of my Divine Mission and was living into my purpose one breath at a time. I spent years, mastering the art of being, learning to listen, trust and allow. I knew how to ace this "pop quiz." Keep your vibration high. Don't succumb to fear. Stay connected. Listen. Trust. Allow.
In mid-May, I came upon a promotional card on the counter in a women's restroom in a Vegas casino. I visited the web site and inquired about a conference to be held the weekend of May 16th at the MGM Grand. I waited for an email confirmation with details about the event. When the weekend came and I still had not heard anything, I let it go. I had walked the journey long enough to know that if I needed to be somewhere, the resources would appear and all would flow with grace and ease.
On Monday, May 19th, tutors were not scheduled to work. So, I did not have a schedule--so I thought. That morning, I was guided to take a walk. As I walked The Strip, I honed my daily practice and stayed connected to the still small voice within. My vibrational understanding proved useful as I traversed the intense distractions of ringing slot machines and crass conversations that form a dense energy cloud in, around and through Vegas casinos.
As I walked, I focused on my breath. I was mindfully present with each step. While walking through Caesars Palace, I heard, "Go ask the man at the booth to tell you about Wyndham." I had applied for many jobs at Wyndham, even had three interviews in Sedona, but had not been offered a job. Without hesitation, I approached the man and asked, "Tell me about this?" as I motioned to the sign on the counter. After a brief sharing about his job, he asked, "Do you want a job?" I replied, "Yes." He told me to go across the street and talk to the manager.
I was elated. Once again, the still small voice was guiding me in ways that were beyond logic and seemed to surpass my near 20 years of formal education. I raced home to change my clothes, print my resume and update my online application. When I arrived, I was ready. After responding to a few questions, the manager said, "This is your lucky day," and asked me if I could come back at 4 pm for a Meet and Greet.
When I exited the meeting, I checked my silenced phone and found a text from an unknown number that said, "Your lunch is waiting for you at the MGM Grand. Bill Walsh is speaking at noon." It was 11:40 am. I jumped in my car and headed through The Strip traffic to the MGM. When I stepped into the large conference room filled with empty chairs at 12:05 pm, I found a small group seated on stage with a middle aged man with a flip chart. I quietly found a seat in one of the empty chairs in the front row, just below the stage not wanting to be noticed as a late arrival.
As I listened, I resonated with the man's words. Especially with his word choice. "I AM. . .a Rainmaker. I AM . . .a money magnet." My entire being knew the power of the words "I AM" as I had spend hours consuming the I AM Discourses before I left Sedona. When the group broke for lunch, Bill Walsh invited anyone interested in learning more about the Speaker Camp to pull up a chair in the back of the room. I sat. I listened. I knew that one day I would work with Bill Walsh and Powerteam International. And, I knew that it wasn't yet time.
Days later, I opened a fresh journal and wrote:
May 23, 2014
I believe that when each person brings forth the unique talents that are theirs to share with the world (aka unique genius), all will be able to live in JOY and THRIVE in prosperity with all our needs met abundantly!!!
To qualify my belief, I will begin with action research to demonstrate we can focus on the highest good for all and clarify targets that exceed measurable goals.
IMPOSSIBLE = I AM POSSIBLE
On June 7, 2014, after waiting two weeks for a background check, I began training to be a Community Marketing Agent. Three months later, when I moved from a part-time night owl with minimal expected results and entered a full-time position with monthly quotas, I learned that the time share position became a conflict between my ego personality and the call of my soul. In October, I resigned my position knowing I was complete with that part of my learning mastery. My journey to the heart of education is directly related to the choice of my soul's earth experience.
On September 7, 2014, I was inspired to complete a powerful exercise that included making two lists. On a blue legal pad, I listed the 100 people in my life that I AM grateful for and the 10 people I would love to do business with. When I opened the notepad two months later, after completing my five month assignment with Wyndham that offered deep insight into the power of energy alignment as it relates to navigating my journey, I found that I had listed Bill Walsh as the #1 person on my “Do Business With'' list.
By December of that year, I received a full scholarship to attend to the Ultimate Wealth Camp. During that event, I wrote an essay to enter a contest to receive a $50,000 Powerteam business make-over. My essay got me to the stage. The audience voted. I shared the stage with the top three contestants. My December 9, 2014, entry included aspects of the story shared above. And below is the end of my essay entry.
In the years that followed, I was blessed with entry to attend Powerteam’s Vision to Wealth, Ultimate Wealth Camp and Rainmaker business conferences. In 2015, the journey to connect with several of the people on my list had me move my home from Vegas to Los Angeles and travel to many inspired locations and attend many business conferences.
For those of you who are feeling a pull to embrace your unique genius, your soul may be calling you to join together in the New Earth energies to manifest Peace on Earth.
Give your mind a rest.
Bring your heart online.
Listen with your heart.
Embrace the silence.
Expand your awareness
What voice guides your actions?
In what areas of your life do you find it easiest to surrender?
Do you have areas in your life that you seek to control?
