Being on the Twin Flame journey can be both great and challenging at the same time. Following your dreams and creating your own Heaven on Earth is very rewarding. However, there are moments when we must purge the old beliefs in order to release them. Those moments aren’t always the most comfortable. Still, the contrast serves its purpose: it comes to show us what is out of alignment with the truth of who we are as Divine children of God.

Facing Our Challenges and Seeing Our Truth

One of the most challenging things I had to undertake after joining both Life Purpose Class and Twin Flame Ascension School was watching the safety net I built for myself over the last ten years crumble. From ages 23 to 33, I chose a line of work which allowed me to provide for myself better the further I progressed in it. By age 28, I manifested a job I could not be fired from, which provided a pretty decent income. 

However, something didn’t sit right in my heart. My job was not fulfilling. It never really was, regardless of which company I worked for at the time. I settled for something that brought neither joy to me nor anyone around me. Instead, I chose to pursue a dream, and when it didn’t quite turn out as expected, I found myself left with nothing but my own two hands to pick myself up and build my life again. At least that’s what I thought. The Truth is, we are never alone in life’s endeavors; God is with us — always, without flaw.

This doesn’t mean that we will live in paradise with the snap of a finger. We must go through the process of clearing our emotional blockages and traumas and putting everything back in its place. That’s what we refer to as “doing the work”: aligning with the love that has always been there, and from which we were all created. Going through this process means going through situations that sometimes aren’t what we prefer. For instance, having no income and feeling unable to do all the things that I was able to do before.

I went from having a steady job that cost me my happiness to being unemployed. I had to face the misaligned belief that I can be unsupported financially. These experiences have been invaluable, and I would like to share the lessons I learned with you.

The Purpose of Contrast

Before encountering Jeff & Shaleia’s body of work at Twin Flames Universe, I lived with all the comfort I required, and private health insurance was a primary commodity that I enjoyed. This dynamic support system disappeared the instant my old life turned upside down, and I was left to rely on the public health system. In Argentina, where I live, the social health system is actually quite poor. There was a reason that I had this experience of poverty, however. I had to understand first-hand why poverty is so uncomfortable, inappropriate, and unnecessary. As Divine Children of God, we were created with natural abundance. This is the main reason why being poor feels so bad and why it is so energetically expensive: in Truth we are rich and wealthy, and living in poverty is not how God created us.

Often times, in my coaching practice, I find myself talking to people whose first objection to invest in their own well-being is that either “they don’t have enough” or that they are “poor.” I realized how feeding into this belief does not serve anyone. It serves neither me nor you. My clients, just as my Twin Flame, mirror the contents of my mind. I had the same blocks; I believed the same things about myself. How would anyone see their true abundant nature if we all keep reinforcing this false belief of inherent poverty?

In both Life Purpose Class (LPC) #10 and #95, Jeff & Shaleia discuss how to establish relationships with one another. They explain that we have always been building relationships even before hearing about the Mirror Exercise. We meet so much resistance from the world when we attempt to build support systems because we believe we can’t be, or don’t deserve to be, well supported.

The belief that we are unworthy of support and love convinces us that we are inherently poor. Thankfully, neither of these ideas are true. You can manifest ANYTHING you desire, and I mean ANYTHING. If you feed the belief that you are poor, you are robbing yourself of your immense capacity to achieve your dreams. 

You CAN have everything, but you have to be willing to do the work. You must be willing to look at yourself in the mirror and make the choice to heal the false beliefs that you’ve been carrying.

What Would Your Life Look Like If…

In Lesson 2 of the Romance Attraction eCourse, the student is invited to ask themselves this question: what would your life be like if you didn’t believe in financial poverty or that you don’t have enough?

Investing in your well-being means investing time, energy, willingness, and, sometimes, money. Money will enable you to receive tools and support for your journey so you don’t have to face the challenges alone, especially when old trauma is coming up to be healed.  

When you begin noticing that everyone holds a piece of your healing, you’ll come to understand how crucial everyone is on your journey, and how abundant the chances are for you to heal and love yourself. This is particularly true when working with coaches who can amplify the power of this healing process. How could this not be translated into the wealth you desire, so you can invest deeper into yourself and your actual and real happiness? Isn’t that what you truly desire? To be happy — really happy?
