From Sleeping in the Back of My Friend’s Car on a Ski Trip to Buying Prada!
By Amanda Moxley
Here’s a picture of me from a beautiful overlook of the Arno river.
Since my son was born and I was birthed into womanhood I have had a complete resurrection with my wealth consciousness. I’m actually in shock myself over this transformation over the past 3 years. My intention in sharing this personal story with you is to help you see the links between the food/body story and the money/wealth story because how you do one thing, is how you do everything! For crying out loud – in college my friends and I would sleep in the back of our cars in the parking lot at the ski resort to save on a hotel room! It actually gets worse: we would brush our teeth in the gas station before we hit the slopes to ski all day long.
My coach would NOT let me get away with my old way of doing things after trying 5 different times to get out of spending the money on a shopping spree in Florence. I was in so much resistance to the thought of spending $1k on some name brand that I was in conflict up until the day of the spree.
I woke up with a flash back of shopping with my high school girlfriends in NYC back in 2005. It was the first time I had ever seen shoes for $2k and I could NOT believe it when my high school BFF bought the shoes! I was in complete SHOCK and AWE and judgment, thinking how could anyone spend that much money on a pair of shoes when there are children starving in Africa. I reasoned that you could support an entire African village on $2k for a year. I also felt “less than” my friend and like I did not belong. It was a horrible feeling. Now I see I was judging her and shaming myself and thus shutting down my desires and wealth consciousness.
Here’s a picture of me, my mastermind partner (Clelia Petersleft) from the UK and my mentor Gina Devee (right).
There I was on a supervised shopping spree in Florence surrounded by famous designer names – Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Guchi, Channel, Tiffany’s, Dolce & Gabbana and more – with my mentor Gina (a self made millionaire). I looked and looked and finally I found the perfect Prada purse which is in my color palette and is made of down, gold and leather (I’m pretty outdoorsy).
How can you up-level your body and life today? I can show you how!
