"Get up. Put on your purple pants 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 tutoring assignment with Clark County. Nearly seven years had passed since I left my high school teaching position to journey to the heart of education. My entire life savings, and then some, had been spent on failed attempts to launch my passion's purpose, first, with 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 to make the 20 hour drive to Oregon where I had family who might offer room and board.
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 tutoring 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 tutoring 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 had 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 the time and location of 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 ease.
On Monday, May 19th, tutors were not scheduled to work. So, I did not have a schedule--so I thought. As I walked The Strip, I honed my practice of staying 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 cell phone and found an unexpected text from an unknown number that said, "Your lunch is waiting for you at the MGM. Bill Walsh is speaking at noon." It was 11:40 am. I jumped in my car to bypass The Strip traffic and drove towards 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” having been immersed in I AM teachings of St. Germaine for nearly three years while residing in Sedona. When the group broke for lunch, the man invited anyone interested in learning more about the Speaker Camp to pull up a chair in the back of the room and share lunch.
I sat. I listened. I said, “Yes” to me and chose to complete the speaker interest form even though I didn’t know how or when I would have money to attend the Powerteam International Speaker training. I knew that when it was time that I would speak on stages around the world with or without the teachings of Bill Walsh and Powerteam International.
On September 7, 2014, I completed 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 sales and marketing, I found that I had listed Bill Walsh as the #1 person on my “Do Business With'' list. By December of that year, 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 would have me move my home from Vegas to Los Angeles and travel to many inspired locations.
