Sometimes you just have to hit rock bottom.
That’s what I used to believe.
This is Jaime here and I want to tell you the story of how I was personally led into a powerful “reset” experience when Pneumonia knocked me out of work and a perfect storm hit my life.
I’m telling you this story because it is a story you’ve probably lived in your own life. You might be living it right now.
And when these intense transitions hit our life they can do more than rock the boat. They can completely capsize it, and shipwrecked on new and unknown shores… we are forced to rebuild.
I hope this story will amuse and inspire you, and also illuminate the anatomy of transition and how you can engage it to turn that transition or challenge into a complete RESET that locks your life into the direction you want it to go.
Because life is meant to be relished!
For me, that undeniable call was pneumonia.
For you it may be a fight with a loved one or getting fired from a job. At its essence, it is an undeniable expression of a deeper hidden block or issue within that has finally become so potent that it has manifested physically in your environment, relationships or in your own body.
This Undeniable Call does two things:
This is what the pneumonia did for me. It literally forced me into bed for over a month with such an immense physical exhaustion, constant cough, and foggy drugged experience that I couldn’t read, watch anything but mindless TV, work or do anything productive.
I was left alone with nothing but my thoughts.
And I had to acknowledge that I’ve never been so sick in my life and that there might be a deeper core wound or issue that triggered this illness at this particular point in my life.
When I looked up the meaning of Pneumonia in Louise Hayes’ You Can Heal Your Life, it said:
All I could do was nod and quietly cry. It was so true – and how had I not seen it before? How did I not know that I was so deeply in emotional crisis and grief until it had manifested in my body?
I was shocked, but also relieved. I knew in my heart that this was the root cause of my problems and now I had an idea how to approach finding a solution…

If you’re in a true transition and life reset, you’ll find that the call forced you to take a long hard look at something inside you, and at some point you made a choice.
To fight, to change, to break through, or to perhaps go in a different direction.
What we often don’t realize in those moments is that we bring an immeasurable amount of force and energy to such pivotal choices ~ even when they seem so simple or subtle.
For me, my choice came just as I was recovering from pneumonia. A week after finally feeling almost normal again… and just as I was returning to work… I got a head cold and I was sick again.
I felt pummeled and punished and defeated.
To make matters worse, I’d just transitioned out of all my client projects so I could tackle my company full-time. But after being sick for nearly a month and a half, I wasn’t able to actually work on the business during that time. So there was no new income. And I’d already released the old income.
I had to borrow money from my parents to pay rent that month. At the age of 31. I felt like a failure and disappointment.
Yet as I sat there… crying as I attempted to meditate at my altar… and as I prayed for some sort of comfort or release from this terrible downward spiral… I emptied out all my frustration and sorrow and suddenly I realized:
NONE of my needs were being met.
I didn’t feel any sense of security or certainty in my life or financial situation, I felt unable to contribute and serve the way I desired, I felt stunted in my own growth process by being sick for so long, and I was at the tail end of a 6-year sabbatical from intimacy and love.
THAT was when I finally hit rock bottom.
And THAT was when I gave my response and made my choice.
I decided if life wasn’t going to meet my needs, it was because it was never meant to. I was the only one who could save me. I had to meet my own needs.
Stripped down, bare and literally recognizing that I might have to let go of all my dreams and desires… at that moment all that was left was God. The only thing left that I knew I had was Spirit.
Stepping toward Spirit became my new and only focus. My compass. I had reduced my life and its complexity ~ all my questioning, doubt and desire ~ to that one simple and singular thing.
I’m not saying this is the choice all of us must come to ~ I think our choices in these moments are as unique as we are and the circumstances we’re in. However the simplicity of it… that’s what made it so powerful for me, and so easy to follow… even as my world continued to crash down around me…
We’re often told that once we hit our breakthrough epiphany, everything magically rights itself and life gets good again. Well in my experience this is both true and NOT true.
It’s true in the sense that such an epiphany is a powerful choice that can move mountains. It literally rends you from the fabric of the life you had and begins the process of delivering you to something new.
However that process must still engage physical reality. It must still manifest along the established lines of creation.
And so when you respond to a crisis or call with a decision to change, to stand up, or to transform… you are establishing the reality that the life you had no longer serves you and that a new life is what you desire.
In other words, you’ve declared that the life you’ve lived up until now was upside down and taking you in the wrong direction. Getting your life right side up again… well that means it’s going to feel like a massive fallout. Your life will seem to get turned upside down as it begins to right itself.
At this point, I believe the most crucial thing to remember is to surrender and allow and to reduce our resistance as much as we can. Fighting the process just stretches it out and we have to remember that what feels like upheaval is simply a setting right what was already wrong.
I think in some ways this is what we’ve seen with our financial systems at the national and global levels.
I also found that each time I remembered my compass and chose Spirit every time I faced a decision (basically moving toward love vs. fear), I found my world resetting itself faster and easier.
An example of this is with money.
My finances were really suffering. I had ideas for how to quickly launch products via O! Lila and some other options for money. But when I felt deeply into the decision, I felt how tense my body was. I could sense the panic inside me to create and market and sell quick quick quick! There was fear behind that. Fear of not having enough money, of having to borrow from my parents again, of losing this business Angela and I have so diligently built.
And so I stepped toward love and made another pivotal choice: I decided to become my own customer. I would create that which I myself deeply needed.

With that final key choice (where I actively lived my earlier decision to always step toward Spirit and love), I finally felt I’d hit solid ground again. Life locked into place and a new perspective was dawning.
You see, my personal RESET that I needed was in Self Love. That was the core wounding that expressed itself in my pneumonia and then my finances.
I had to address some very serious questions: why did I keep refusing to create what I MYSELF deeply needed? Why wasn’t I meeting my own needs?
It took me becoming deathly sick, going broke and even considering therapy before I became vulnerable enough… stripped down enough… honest enough with myself to ask:
“What do I deeply need right now? What is going to feed my soul and save my life?”
Out of that questioning poured forth what is now the Soul Declarations Photobook for the Money Frequency. After that, other materials poured forth along with inspired discussions and serendipitous meetings.
Unlike anything else I’d ever created prior, I was returning to these materials every day – consuming them like a user rather than their creator.
I had truly created what I needed most, and my life transformed as a result. Money was flowing in. People were showing up and offering resources I’d needed but didn’t know how to find. Even my dating life shifted!
Angela, inspired by her own soul stirrings, had also started creating what she most craved.
She shared with me some audio lessons she had just recorded with guest experts on our energetic relationship to wealth, health and other topics. She’d also been exploring brain entrainment and developing new meditation practices.
We were both genuinely and delightfully shocked: something profound had taken shape for us. Somehow we’d both separately gone through our own processes and arrived at the same place. Resolution. And an evolution for our own company. For O! Lila.
Already, in just the past 4 weeks, our entire lives have transformed:
I can say unequivocally that this intense transition experience has been one of the best things that happened to me.
However I’m also learning that these life-changing shifts of mine might be so difficult and scary simply because I always believed they had to be.
The moment I truly began to move into the resolution and evolution that earned me true transformation in my own habits and unconscious behaviors was when I started consuming and utilizing simple tools like the Photobook… along with more complex tools like brain entrainment audios.
I had always been a firm believer in the power of visualization and brain entrainment however I had never experienced the instantaneous and profound total reset experience of combining A Moment of Undeniable TRUTH + these Simple Tools For Transformation.
Those two things together proved utter magic!
And how nice would it be to achieve these same genuine epiphanies and evolutions without requiring a crisis or upheaval every single time?
I’d love for you to take a look at what Angela and I created to support our own transformations. We created what served us most and what truly supported us through our hectic lives and confusing moments. It was a beautiful journey to create and use, and already we’ve been getting wonderful feedback on its results from others who are now using it.
It’s called the Success Reset Package for Removing Your Hidden Barriers to Wealth
We started there because of my own financial challenges after pneumonia and also because we know it’s hard to focus on your relationship or inner transformation when bills aren’t getting paid and that basic need for security and safety feels threatened. However you’ll find all areas of your life touched with abundance and vibrance while using this reset package, just like we experienced!
The Success Reset Package itself is brand new… however its components are proven wealth energy tools and expertise that hail from ancient Indian yogic wisdom, neurology and brain science, and more.
I wish you a beautiful and bountiful transition for your own life!
