How to Tell If You're Near a Breakthrough

Updated: Nov 14, 2019


Not sure if you are near a breakthrough? Or wondering if you are completely off track?


Before every breakthrough, there is usually a breakdown.


This could be a breakdown of relationships, jobs, and/or other life categories that do not align with the new and higher frequency of where you are headed.


For instance, reflect back on a time in your life you realized that you “dodged a bullet.” Was it a relationship that didn’t work out that freed you up to meet a better partner? Or a rejection from a job that freed you up to come across a better opportunity?


This I know to be true from numerous personal milestone breakthroughs. If you’re new to NotABondGirl, it can get a bit confusing in terms of my personal and professional timeline. In a nutshell, here’s an overview of what happened that let me to create this site...


Not too long ago, I went through a series of life crises. Frankly, it was a series of personal and professional failures. But hey, in hindsight it was not such a bad thing when looking at the situation from a personal growth perspective.


My “failure” story.


I couldn’t stand working another day at my job. Despite having over 20 years on my mortgage, I turned in my resignation. Yes, I quit my six-figure job without another job lined up. Not even an interview on the horizon.


No this was not an impulsive decision. Though, I have done this on impulse in the past. This time around, I made this decision with clarity and with intention.


But the worst was yet to come.


When I thought the worst was over, the most unexpected events happened within months of resigning. While on an overseas post-resignation-celebration trip, I got sick and ended up in the emergency room.


My relationship with a boyfriend of three years abruptly ended. And that was only a week after my dad was in the hospital for a brain injury.


If my life was a reality show, this would have won an Emmy.


Heck! Forget the breakthrough, there were numerous times when I wondered if I was even going to catch a break.


But I did. When the breakthrough happens, it was a windfall in the form of financial abundance, healthier friendships, stronger relationships, and so forth.


The next time the doubts and anxious thoughts creep up, remind yourself that a breakdown is necessary for a breakthrough to occur. It's similar to building a new home. The structure of the old house needs to be broken down to the ground in order to build on a new stronger foundation.


To make it through the breakdown, it’s important to tap into your intuition for guidance on the next steps towards raising your frequency. By raising your frequency, you allow yourself to align with the healing positive vibrations of the Universe.


Sure enough, the Universe had my back.


Here I thought I was being blocked from opportunities each time I applied to jobs that I was overqualified for. I mean, it hurt to not get an interview! But those doors closed for a reason.


The “failed” attempts lead me to increase my wealth + wellness (wealthness).


I knew in my heart that the only way to move forward was to heal first. It was terrifying thinking of living off of my savings with a mortgage to pay among other major bills. My wealthness grew, even without a job.


It was a bit of an Eat, Pray, Love kind of soul searching journey. For my career, I spent time learning about how to achieve financial independence. I got my finances squared away and created a solid plan to retire in my 30’s.


For my soul, I worked with energy healers, mediums, tarot readers, and even received past-life regression readings. For my health, I practiced yoga (instead of just teaching it!), read self-help books, attended holistic wellness workshops, and traveled the world.


How I raised my vibrations at rock bottom.


Looking back, I realized that by raising my vibrations on the mental, physical, emotional and energetic level, I was able to attract more opportunities leading to abundance. When we vibrate at the same frequency of the best version of ourselves, we are able to manifest faster breakthroughs.


Sure, it’s not easy to have high-vibe thoughts 100% of the day. But so long as we are able to make an effort to do so 51% of the time, we’ll start to feel shifts. In order to raise our frequency, we must raise our vibrations to align ourselves with the frequency of where we want to be in life.


The secret sauce?


I lived as if I had a Plan B secured. It wasn’t easy but it wasn’t going to be doing me any good to operate in the frequency of desperate anxious energy.


I focused on taking inspired actions to align my frequency to the next chapter of my life by taking baby steps towards choosing actions that brought me freedom and joy.


For instance, blogging everyday created a greater sense of creative freedom. Also, taking daily walks in nature cleared my head and align with the frequency of joy.


See if I wanted my next career to bring me freedom and joy, I needed to take actions that aligned with that frequency in my personal life. Otherwise, how was I going to attract that in my professional life if I had no clarity on the things that brought me freedom and joy.


Slowly but surely, I realigned with my soul path. Then my career path manifested like whoa. It was like a springboard that allowed me to attract more opportunities that matched that higher frequency.


And there’s no stopping here.


Life is all about the journey, not the destination. In order to continue to raise the frequency, spiritual development is critical.
