I love to have money.
I love the freedom and choices it brings. I love how it enables me to go on reteats, to study my favorite subjects and to control my schedule.
But most of all, what if I say:
“Trading is the perfect complement to my real work as a bodyworker – because it teaches me to self-regulate using bio-feedback. If I can do it, I can teach it and this skill will make me a better. more connected bodyworker as a result”
Once I got down to one-year money left, I decided to make another pile of cash, but this time it would be different. This time I would make money consciously – rather than just by an extraordinary feat of good luck. And this time, I would share the process.
What if I drop my ‘woe is me – I lost all my money’ and replace it with ‘during the last 10 years I discovered two real passions in life – one is bodywork practice and theory and the other is trading’. These two may seem unrelated at first bit they are not. I use biofeedback to regulate myself while trading and this is ability is a fundamental to all bodyworkers and probably therapists too.
And my course is the output of all that I have learned over the last 10 years to reach a level of general happiness I never thought possible and the trauma* losing all that money and going from financial security to a very precarious position.
* ‘trauma’ may sound like an exaggeration but there was a period when I was experiencing all the characteristics of trauma – flashbacks, obsessive thoughts, sleeplessness, isolation, avoidance, deep sense of shame and at its worse some suicidal ideation.
