I Grabbed My Ankles… and Switched It!

In the Fall of 2009, during a fit of financial desperation, I found myself working in a position I had not previously held. I had become a virtual assistant.

With this new gig, I thought I had made it… as my own boss!

The opportunity to fully utilize my corporate and military skills was rife for the picking. Yet, I was a bit apprehensive for I had just stepped into… The Woo Woo Zone!

This client worked with energy, talked to spirit, and everything in-between.

I didn’t take me long to realize that I needed to send my left brain “Look beyond what you see” Letter.

Oh boy! This gig was not what I expected.

Now, it didn’t pay much, which kind of defeated its initial purpose, but it opened the door to other clients… in the same field.

Doors continued to open, and more clients kept roundin’ the bend.

The work was there; a lot of it, actually. Yet, the money wasn’t.

More than that, I had managed to become besties with resentment and anger for I didn’t feel appreciated for what I was bringing to the table.

I had spent so much time focusing on all the things I didn’t want to experience (e.g. lack of appreciation), the Law of Attraction complied, like always, by giving me more of the same.

My attitude towards these clients and the work I was delivering slipped into a cavernous hole.

That still small voice within could remain silent no longer, and it demanded to be heard.

The shift had arrived, and I had nowhere to hide.

I was left with no other option, but to grab my ankles, take one for the team, and accept/trust the process of my true unfoldment.

As I watched the money trickle away, I could have regressed and really freak out.

For me, that was the familiar road.

Instead, I did what my spirit had been longing to do for some time… I went within, and began the long journey to healing.

Today, I am immensely grateful for the experiences I co-created with those individuals.

Through them, I got to see that the lack of appreciation and respect I thought they weren’t giving as reflections of what I was not giving myself.

Through them, I got really clear and focused, and I began to say, “no”.

Through them, I reclaimed my power.

Through them, I saw what really mattered to me.

To my surprise, I came to the realization that making a ton of money wasn’t it.

For the first time, I was still.

At first, I was uncomfortable with the silence because I had spent so many days and nights worrying about other people and their business while my life sat on the back burner.

But just like the sweet smell of rain-washed air, space cleared up for me. And the opportunity to polish, refine, and revive my own gifts and talents was finally at center stage.

Being in this powerful place gave me strength…

I broke up with resentment and anger, and they didn’t go quietly into the night.  They went kicking and screaming!

Every now and then, one of them will pop in for a little quickie action, and I am grateful for the lesson that seeks activation in those moments.

I am also grateful that neither of them stay very long.

I’ve dropped my unnecessary need to armor myself, and they no longer have anything to cling.

I now laugh at situations that once triggered me.

The tools I used…

The latter helped me slough away all the debris that was hanging out in my energy field; the stuff that no longer served me.

They also helped bring Light to those dark corners where old patterns and what-not were still hanging out and causing a scene.

Switchwords keep me sane, which is no simple task for someone who’s been functioning, for YEARS, on the last of their marbles.

With one word, I am able to completely shift a thought into a more positive direction. The science behind these lil doo-dads amazes… and baffles me.

Everyone is shifting and transforming these days.

you have two choices…

    • Door #1: Keep fighting the current of change and keep watching your life unravel like your favorite VHS movie stuck in the VCR. (Yeah, I said, “VCR”.)


    • Door #2: Grab your ankles, and Switch It! (Also, feel free to add a dash of Ommmmmmmm to get things really flowing.)


Should you choose door #2, use the following Switchphrase to help you! (OMG! That was an unintentional rhyme!)


(Use it whenever you want to free yourself from what no longer serves you [regardless of what it is].)

“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most
intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
