LISTENING was what it was time do to. Plain and simple.
You might’ve noticed that it’s been quiet over here at the blog for a few weeks. That was for a reason. Where have I been?
Quite honestly, the noise was getting too great. And I wasn’t really hearing anything. So it was time for me to take a BIG step forward by taking a big step BACK.
This past week I DID NOTHING BUT LISTEN. I spent the week listening to myself and to my own Soul.
Easier said than done. But that’s what I did.
I just took the time, took several steps back, and did what I tell my clients to do….I got in touch with ME.
It was painful at times. Stressful. It didn’t seem at times as though sitting and listening was getting me anywhere. Seriously…..Why wasn’t I DOING anything?
What about all this talk about taking ACTION, ACTION, ACTION!!???
Only I WAS doing. I just didn’t know it yet. I was doing a LOT.
Sometimes you really have to listen so that you can hear….and that includes tuning out of ALL the noise around you.
NOT just Social Media. Not just your immediate surroundings.
YOURSELF too. Sometimes all that jibber-jabber in your head gets to you. And it doesn’t help. It blocks out everything else.
Truly LISTENING to yourself can be one of the most challenging things there is. But it isn’t because it’s a skill that you need to acquire.
It’s a matter of getting through the constant chaos around you, both inside and out, clearing out the crap and actually hearing what’s left.
That’s when you know that in order to know what it is that you need to do, not only to you have to ask, not only to do you have to set the intention to find out, but also you have to LISTEN.
And THEN do things.
Here’s just a few things that I learned:
–Having the courage to admit when things aren’t going the way you want them to is really HARD….but there’s no other way to honor yourself and your mission
–Just that just because things appear to be “wrong” doesn’t mean they are at all–everything is actually here to HELP you
–There really IS serious point and purpose to your being here on this planet at this time in particular (oh, yeah, and the seriousness of it all can actually be freaking FUN, too!) 😀
–You have to know that at the very heart of you lies everything that you need to know….but knowing is only PART of the mission. DOING is also only part of the mission. Sometimes the hardest part of the mission is ACCEPTING the mission….even if it seems impossible to carry out (and it’s not.)
That’s just a FEW bits of magic I got from the Universe/Source/God this week….and that’s just a small sampling!
I’ll be taking these on one at a time as well as bringing more as it happens….but I DO want you to know one thing for sure–YOU and YOUR dreams matter. More than you know.
Things are just getting started, everyone!
