Thread: Journey to my new job

  1. #1

    Journey to my new job

    Last friday I got fired. And it felt good. Really good!
    I felt like: That's ok. The universe is having my back. Everything will work out fine. I will get a new job. I literaly felt all the opportunities out there! It was amazing.
    I'm pretty sure I got fired, because I practised the vibration of incoming money. And through this job in this particular shop money was not likely to come, since the figures of the shop declined slowly, but steadily.
    I went to the job center this morning and they were extremly nice there. They were enthusiastic, because I was so enthusiastic about finding something new. And they said to me, don't worry, you will definitely find something new.
    I called one of the job offers imediately and I will have an interview tomorrow.

    Good for you for doing your "work." What Process(es) will you use?

    Please keep in mind that this is The ABE Forum so please focus your work according to the principles of these teachings. Journaling or reporting has its pitfalls with regard to this material. For this reason, Abraham (and we) don't really encourage that as a Process.

    Right now, I'm going general.
    I don't need a job this red hot minute. I've got time. And I do not NEED the money for the first time in my life. I want it, but I do not need it.
    And I find comfort in this thoughts. I like this state of really having time to do stuff I do want to do. I love it! I am so relaxed!
    And it is amazing that I actually do more than ever. I went shopping for new and fancy clothes, things I would have never bought for the old job in the shop. It would have been useless, since things had a tendency to get ripped and dirty in there.
    And when I did that shopping I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed this not thinking of when will you ever wear it? Instead I felt like, I can't wait to wear clothes like this every single day. And I did not think twice about spending this money. I would not have done that before, without flinching internally. But when I used my card, I felt supported by the universe and I just KNEW, that money is on its way.
    Also, I like how the universe is presenting opportunities I can sift and sort through. Like I said, I do not need a new job right now to support myself. And I like that feeling. I actually revel in it.
    Right now, I just feel! I feel good!

    I went to a job interview and it was good. I liked the questions the lady asked and I felt comfortable during the whole time. I wasn't even the sligthest nervous and that surprised me the most. When I walked out, I thought about really working there and my gut said no, despite how good the interview itself went. I just had that, not the right place for you feeling. And I can't explain it any better.
    I feel free! I have the freedom to choose! And that feels so good! I feel comfortable in this freedom. And I feel secure. I am save! I have the time and I have the opportunities and I am free to decline or to take whatever I want. I am free.
    I do not need this job for the money. Money is already in my life.
    Ha, that is exactly what someone rich would say. Money is not the issue, cause its already there. Uh, that feels good, too. I can feel it. Money being there, just being there, just being there, just being there... Oh, that feels good!
    After the job interview, I drove home and on my way decided to visit a family member (of my husbands side) at her workplace. And guess what, they are looking for someone to hire, too. They would pay better than my last job, have less hours, too and I would be over there within fifteen minutes. That's cool. All the criteria I was looking for.
    She said, she would ask her boss about it and then get back to me.
    You know, I had to smile about it. The universe is presenting endless opportunities to me!

    I did an online application yesterday. And one of the questions was "How are your English skills (writing and talking)?"
    The answers I could choose were:
    -Conversational safe
    Personally, I would not say "expert" or "basic", but I am not sure if I am more "conversational safe" or more "fluent".
    My husband thinks I should check the box for "fluent", because I watch movies and series in English, read English books and talking to customers was never really an issue (except for technical terms, then I'm lost). And he says, for a german girl, I am way better than most of the others (and no, I do not have this "typical german accent", it's more american than anything else)
    What do you think?

    I also wrote another application letter yesterday, and at first I felt lost. I started with all those basic sentences and it did not feel good to me. Then I thought suddenly "screw it!" and wrote the application again, this time in my own words. Half of it was even in English, to prove that I did not understate my skills.
    And I thought, if this woman is going to hire me, than she should at least have an idea who I am. Either she likes it or not. Not my problem. It felt much better this way! It felt like me! Just me. And "just me" is exactly what I am offering to this world. Because the perfect job for me has to take me as "just me". I am perfect in being "just me". Being "just me" is so much!

    I checked the box for fluent. Because I am.
    Applications are out there, now let's see.
    I had an interview last week in the city and when I went there I was way too early. So I strolled down the street and there was this shop. It actually "lit up" through its interiour. I was literally drawn to this shop just because of the way how it was built inside. So I went in, the women inside asked if I need help and I told them, how much I appreciate their design efforts. One thing led to another and in the end they took a picture of my CV.
    The next day they called back. They offered me a trial workday at the end of this week.
    The most amazing thing is: I told my husband, that this would be it. It felt good! This little shop and their owners connected instantly with me. I can't describe it any better, but I'm sure you all will understand.

    Today I had another trial workday and this was the exact opposite of what I described before.
    I just can't feel myself working there. The work itself was fine, but I do not connect. Neither with the shop nor the owner. Expecially not the owner.
    Yes, they do have a lot of nice things around there and yes, I'm sure they are better in business than others and yes, that lady was definetly, but still...
    I still have that feeling I described in another post: It's just not the right place for me.
    No, I do not want to work there. Not even when they would pay better. Which they don't.

    I had my trial workday in the city and it was good! I did the whole day and it was so much fun. The others of the crew are nice, the shop is still growing, and they let me do some stuff and it was really nice. I had fun there. Their cash system is completely different to everything I have ever experienced, so I have to learn everything new, but I am pretty confident I could do that. In a little while I am going to be used to it.
    They asked if I want to work there after I had this day and I said, yes, I would like that.
    Two days ago when we talked on the phone, Simone (one of the leaders) said, they are talking about hiring me and what she can say yet is, that everyone else wants to have me as well. So it looks like I got a job.
    You know, it is amazing. This job was not even in the picture, before I had the other interview in the city and I just got it through walking in this particular shop. I did not have to fill out any forms or had to apply for it. I just went in there. It came to me easily and on itself.
    And I like that!
    Since, I have some time off, I could also do some things I had not had the time for before.
    Like, doing christmas shopping for my husband. You know it is so nice to be in shops and tell the staff to take their time instead of rushing them, because I do have the time.
    Or like getting check-up-appointments at the doctors. Or get needed vaccinations. And not to be stressed out, because of the waiting periods at the doctors. I do like that!
    I also do a lot of christmas baking. And I really appreciate having the time for it, instead of doing it in a rush on weekends. I love having the time for it.

    But the best about this "being in between jobs": We got us a cat. We went to the animal shelter and well, there was this particular cat. We fell in love with her instantly. She is fifteen. (No comments about her age, we know that she is old! Besides she is really fit and you would never guess, that she is that old already, and above all, there are not many people who would take in a cat her age, are there?)
    We figured, that it is easier to get her used to living with us, while I have the time to be around. We would not have to worry about that. We picked her up on sunday and she is already used to the flat and us. She eats, plays, cuddles with us, and never showed any symptoms of stress at all.
    So I guess, we can start to get her and the dog to know each other in a day or two. By now, I already started to let them snuff on my hands when I cuddled with the other. Neither the dog nor she showed any unfriendly reaction to the smell of the other, on the contrary, they seem to like it.

    To sum it up: All is well!

    Today I have a hard time believing.

    I could have that job in the city. BUT they said they want to hire me in December full time and reduce my hours in January to 30 hours a week, because they think there's less work to do in January.
    This is not what we talked about before. Before we talked about 40 hours a week and 2000,- . Now they talk about 37.5 hours a week (only in December) and 1875,- gross. Considering my tax class I get out less than before. Which would not be so much issue, but I need to pay 200,- for the train ticket each month as well. If they want to reduce my hours in January even more, that would mean 1500,- gross and even less out and than I still had to pay the train ticket...
    I told them, we need to find a different option. Maybe they could pay part of the train ticket, for example (they can deduct this from the taxes).
    They said, they'd discuss this and get back to me.
    I just can't shake the feeling, that this is not going to work out.
    So now I am having doubts. Is it me? Am I not really hireable? Am I asking for too much? But on the other hand everyone keeps telling me, that I actually always had way too much hours for way to less salary. Is that just, what I vibrate? Well, don't I have to vibrate it, in order to get this outcome? But if I vibrate this, is that because I secretly belive, that I would not deserve better???
    Since I thought this would be my new job, I am pretty disappointed.

    On the other hand, yes I could take this job nevertheless and earn less. But do I really want to get down? NO, I do want to get up! And yes, actually my husband earns a lot and yes, I do not NEED to take each and every job now, to provide for me, but does that mean, that I do not deserve better? Should I go again working "just for fun"? Can't I do better? Haven't I had enough crappy jobs with bad salarys? Isn't it time now, to have a good job with a good income? Again, I do deserve it, don't I?
    But if I DO DESERVE BETTER, why isn't it coming?
    Yeah, I know, the answer to that is simple. I obviously do not vibrate it, otherwise it would be materialising.
    So, where do I go wrong?

    Maybe, it is the other way around. Maybe, the universe is actually working on getting me the perfect job and this would not be it. Maybe, I would not be happy working in this shop and maybe the universe sees this, while I don't. So maybe, this not working out is not me vibrating something bad, but actually the universe looking out for me and preparing that I do not take this job while something better is already on the way. Maybe, I am just impatient, while actually everything is fine and there is no need to fuss and worry about. So maybe the only thing wrong now, is me feeling bad, while actually everything is right on track.
    So, why don't I just trust the universe and let it do the work? Yes, I should do that! NOW I'm going to bake some christmas cookies, while I do have the time for it. Because in the end, the right job for me is just around the corner and will be materialising sooner than I think and then I will probably do not have the time for baking.
    Good, I feel better now. Hopeful. Trusting the universe and my inner being. Trusting that everything will work out. Actually, everything has always worked out in the end, hasn't it?

    Sitting in bed, the cat on my side, a book on my knees, a big cup of coffee on the bedside table and my husband next to me, sleeping soundly.
    What a beautiful way to start a new day!

    I keep thinking that maybe me still not having a job is a sign. I keep thinking that maybe I should go back to universitiy. I had to drop out back then, but who says I can't do it now? I'm still young, do not have kids yet, do not have to worry about the money for daily life, so why not?
