I still remember the time I was studying with Doreen Virtue back in 2011, on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii.
On our very last day, before we all said goodbye to each other and went off on our own journeys, she gave us a little book that she recommended to us as one of her favourite abundance practices.
She wanted us all to have the best possible start in this new chapter of our lives—specifically thinking of those of us who were planning to start our own businesses as intuitive readers and healers.
To be completely honest with you: As I was flipping through this tiny 50-ish page booklet for the very first time, I was a little intimidated. It all seemed rather dry and filled with abundantly complicated language that took a few reads to fully process.
(If you're familiar with the Abundance Book by John Randolph Price, I'm pretty sure you'll know exactly what I mean.) ;)
But I was also curious and eager to learn, and so I didn't hesitate long and started my 40 day practice pretty much immediately after my return back to Switzerland, which is where I was living at the time.
I was just getting started on my journey as a spiritual teacher, taking my first steps to turn my new found passion into a real business that would support me fully. I also had big plans for my life as a whole.
For quite some time, I had dreamed about leaving behind my home in Switzerland to be free to travel the world. After this week in Hawaii, I knew the time was now! It was a big step into the unknown, so I could certainly use some extra support from the universe. :)
And I do have to say: What unfolded from there was quite magical!
I pretty much stepped right into the life I had envisioned for so long. Not much more than a month after my return to Europe, I was traveling again. This time to England to attend a workshop with a soul sister I had met on YouTube about half a year before.
One trip turned into many, and about half a year later, I was ready to embark on my biggest adventure yet with all my belongings in a suitcase and carry-on bag.
In the meantime, I had hosted my own first workshops, worked with my first paying clients in my new business, Elven Magic, and manifested a 5-figure freelance project that fully covered my financial needs throughout this transition period.
To be very honest, I had more or less forgotten about my 40 day prosperity practice by then—but looking back, I have no doubt that it had set something powerful in motion.
It initiated a journey that totally and completely changed my life. Eventually, my travels brought me back to my beloved childhood home here in BC, a dream I had almost given up on, but that came true like magic when I least expected it.
About a year ago, the Abundance Book found its way back into my life through a mentor I was working with at the time. I've completed the 40 day practice two more times since then (and just started another round a few days ago), and I must say that compared to all the mindset practices I've explored over the last decade, it is without a doubt the most effective I've tried.
Each time, the results have been amazing, both in the short and long-term.
Some of the results I witnessed during or shortly after my 40 day programs last year included effortless $2K, $5K and then $6K sales after almost two years of struggling to get there, a new home that is absolutely perfect for me and my small family, two new cats and a puppy that looks exactly like the puppy on my vision board, a piano in our new living room (came with our new home), and a degree of joy and happiness I hadn't felt in a very long time.
Again, the initial breakthroughs were followed by a much more in-depth transformation that I hadn't at all anticipated.
I won't go into all the details here today, but let's just say these past 6 months have been profoundly liberating on so many levels.
I'm finally getting to be me again after many years of searching for my truth and purpose, thoroughly enjoying this new beginning that's unfolding in my business at this time, and excited to see what's next!
