As a life coach and an Abundance coach, I get tested on my teachings all the time. One of my fun ways to play with my manifesting abilities is with my AirBnB apartment in Sydney. I have had this property for four years now and it is also my Sydney pad. I’m truly grateful to have it and its been a very abundant little investment that I get to use.
I’d like to share what has unfolded with this and how I moved back into flow with it.
As I said, I use this property as a manifesting tester to see how aligned I am, and it’s pretty much always booked out in advance. I just ask for the perfect bookings and know that they are coming forth.
When COVID happened, bookings after bookings were cancelled. This didn’t bother me too much at all , as I knew that another booking would happen.
And sure enough we got the perfect booking for all of April.
However, what I had been noticing was a dissatisfaction that I was feeling about my Airbnb manager. The more I noticed this, the more that dissatisfaction was shown to me with mistakes, and the usual standards not being met. I also knew that my manager was in fear about the virus. I could sense it.
I did nothing about it though.
I also noticed that I was imagining managing the property myself and how I could actually easily do it myself with the support of a cleaner/concierge and that I would be quite happy to.
Fast forward to the end of April and the guest checked out leaving the apartment very dirty and with extra cleaning and some repairs required. We had never had to make a claim from a guest before but I had to sort it out with the guest and Airbnb myself.
Meanwhile, the communication around what had been done and hadn’t seemed to be quite difficult with my AirBnB manager. Which again led to more dissatisfaction and we also had no forward bookings at all.
I knew something was out of alignment and I had to do something.
I started doing some research. Did I need to put it on full time rent? Turns out the rental market is flooded and expected rents were low.
So then I remembered my tools, to tune in.
What feels good, what feels aligned?
I knew then and there I was choosing to keep it on AirBnB and to manage it myself.
My next step was to see if the excellent cleaner could do the check-ins for me. It was yes we came to a win-win arrangement this all felt good and very aligned.
The next thing was to give my manager the 30 days notice. I noticed I had some ickiness to how I felt. I also had a feeling that she would be difficult. I noticed this and I owned how I had been holding her in my dissatisfaction, but I also had a very clear intention of managing it myself and moving it back into flow.
Sure enough, she was not happy and made some snide remarks and responses in her emails to me. In my ego I wanted to respond in the same manner but I chose not to. I chose to take responsibility for how she was showing up to me as I had set her up to do just that. I responded neutrally and with love and compassion for her.
In doing so she came back to me and agreed that it was a good idea after all and that she was happy not to have to work through the 30 days notice.
After some alignment to the pricing and a weeks vacancy while I was working through all of this, the perfect profitable 28 day booking came in and my cleaner did an amazing job of checking the new guest in.
So what is the moral of this story? Take responsibility for what shows up, good or bad. You see, we are creating our reality all the time. The thing is, most of the time, it’s from our blind spot, our unconscious self.
Get aligned to what feels good, take the action from that place and expect it to unfold better than expected.
Try it out. Let me know how you go.
So that brings me on to what blocks your Abundance?
Join me on Saturday 16th May at 11am AEST, for a free two hour virtual workshop. I will take you through a process so you can see what blocks your Abundance. I have not shared this process in any of my workshops so even if you’ve been to one before this will be a new process for you.
From that place of owning your truth we will then create space to tap you into your Land of Abundance.
In the meantime, you want to get started manifesting, you can download my book Abundance 101 from Amazon here.
Or order the hardcopy direct from me here.
I hope to see you next Saturday.
Love & light
