This weekend my wife and I had the pleasure of attending the Millionaire Mind Intensive, it was one of the most enlightening and moving seminar I have yet to attend. It was held over 3 days here in Seattle, and we had the privilege to work through everything from our psychological association with money and wealth, to the emotional and spiritual aspects of our relationships to others and how this affects our "money blueprint".
For those of you who haven't attended, I highly recommend it. They have upcoming sessions in Montreal, San Francisco, Ft. Lauderdale, Detroit and Toronto - sign up now before they sell out.
I know many of my readers live outside North America, such as the UK and Australia. If you aren't able to make the seminar, pick up a copy of the book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
Okay, I've expressed my enthusiasm, but you're probably asking yourself, what does this have to do with crossdressing and the transgendered experience? Quite a lot, actually. In a previous article I shared the financial challenges the transgendered face. In this article I'd like to refer to two concepts that were emphasized at the Millionaire Mind Intensive and how they relate to crossdressers and the transgendered.
You are worthy! Just as you are. You don't need to be richer, or thinner, or have better teeth. You are worthy of experiencing a wonderful life. In fact, God and the Universe deemed you so worthy, that you were born into this world. Often times as crossdressers we think that we are less worthy than others. That there is "something wrong with us". That is not true! Never let anyone else tell you that you're any less worthy of being alive. More importantly, don't let your mind fool you into believing this either!
Namaste is a Hindu greeting that means: "I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace, When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One". This is an enlightened way to live, in your life with others and yourself.
It struck me how often we don't honor that beautiful place in ourselves, believing we are unworthy. I spoke about that already, so I'm not going to go into more detail here. The other part of this, though, is that we honor that beautiful place in others. Even if they do not accept us, even if they try to tell us that we are an abomination and are going to hell. They have their own truth, and their own beautiful place of Love, Integrity and Wisdom. We are no more justified to call them unworthy than they are to call us unworthy.
I know I don't have all the answers, please comment and let me know what you think.
