How to trust after a betrayal

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Richard.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David!

I have had someone that I trusted embezzle money from me, and I just can’t let it go. I know it’s negatively affecting my business. Any suggestions on how I can move past this and create from a positive place again?

Thanks so much!

Neagle Code Answer

Hi Richard!

I know how you feel.

I had something similar happen to me several years ago.

To get through it I had to look to the truth.

And the truth is that we create everything in our life…all the good and all the bad. And we create everything for a reason.

The first step in forgiving your business partner is to take responsibility for your part in it.

Ask yourself: What did this situation have to teach me?

Find the hidden gifts and lessons that you need to see, and be grateful for them.

The second step is to let go of that money knowing that you can put your efforts into creating it again, but this time from a better, more prepared and healthy place.

If you continue to see yourself as a victim of this situation, you will continue to be unforgiving and angry

If you can see this situation from an empowered place, everything will shift and you’ll feel the peace you’re looking for.

  1. Hi David,

    I am not writing with a problem, though this particular comment really helped me with something old that needed further resolution. I signed up for your ChallengeBug 14 day course. Even after just 2 days, my business opened up even more and easily doubled in the first month and now in the second, is doubling again. It was a very simple choice to order your next level course, which interestingly enough, I’ve been so busy (happily) that I haven’t really gotten into it, but today is the day.

    I am writing to express my gratitude and appreciation. There was nothing in the ChallengeBug that I did not know, yet, you put it together in a way that was really potent. I suspect it’s because you’ve mastered an inner path of Truth that allows your Truth to extend to anyone in your field, including people who take your courses. Thank you. My life is richer and more meaningful because of your course. It’s obvious that your teaching is truly heartfelt and conveyed heart-to-heart.

    Blessings and Enjoy!


    • Very happy to hear this Lee and thanks again for your kind words. I just speak the truth and you are choosing to listen. I’ll keep doing what I’m doing because I love it!
