What I have learned…..The trees don’t think about not growing. The blades of grass don’t contemplate if they should sprout or not. The sun doesn’t feel guilty and therefore not rise. Then why do we as humans put up such a fight and create an unnecessary struggle, when, often, we don’t have to?
The lesson that is so very hard for all of us to grasp is related to our own power and thoughts. I am always working with people on how to bring their dreams to fruition and I like to call it “master manifesting”. Here’s the biggest problem I see (I see another workshop brewing). We have an idea and want it badly, but somewhere along the way, we get scared because the idea just may be too big to actually bring into the world. This FEAR creates an ambiguous pattern that ensues. We take a step and then wait and then get confused and then that uncertainty turns to doubt and paralyzes us again. Sound familiar? Often, what I hear, is something like this: ” I’m not sure how to proceed so I’m waiting for a sign to help me decide”. The waiting is the biggest issue. I’m not saying you shouldn’t collaborate with the universe because we SHOULD for sure, but it’s HOW we should do it that counts.
We are always co-creating with this magical universe. Most often we aren’t aware of it because we do it unconsciously or subconsciously. Recognizing those unconscious patterns can help us unravel where our motivation gets trapped or stuck.
Back to the beginning when I mentioned the grass and the trees and the sun. Nature is one of our greatest teachers. The human condition is complicated and that brain has a good way of getting in the way. We OVERCOMPLICATE so much of our lives. When we have dreams, why do we get so overwhelmed with those dreams? We believe we can’t and convince ourselves it’s not worth following our heart or passion and in turn become complacent and unhappy. Of course we can’t drop everything and go after a dream when we can’t support ourselves etc. This isn’t what I’m talking about. I’m referencing something more. I’m speaking to our truth, our heart, our soul and not honoring it or allowing it to shine. Don’t wait too long for a sign or for someone else to believe in you so you can believe in yourself.
We co-create with this universe and if you are waiting, you will often get more of the “waiting” in your life or more of the back and forth energy. When we act as nature does and do what comes naturally for us, we grow and prosper and our dreams will begin to emerge, bit by bit. You will stop holding on so tight to the FEAR that keeps you from your greatness.
Next time your heart is beckoning you to emerge, think of nature and align with her beauty and the courage to just “BE”. You are magnificent beyond measure, start believing it!
