Finding truth and what really resonates with me at this time of my great despair over the events that are transpiring in this country and around the world has taken me on a journey to read and watch mystical prophets of our time talk about evil, Holy Darkness, the Apocalypse, the rise of the Divine Feminine, sacred action and radical loving in the face of the destruction.
And I am finding a kind of validation in the mirror that they are holding up – and in my ability to look at and take in fully the faces of the apocalyptic times we are all walking through.
Distractions. Interruptions. Obstacles. TO Dos. Endless mind chatter.
You sit down to write, paint, study, read, meditate – anything that is important and on course for you and if you are not truly diligent the ‘clutter’ of your life can creep in.
These constant interruptions can eventually pull you away from what is calling from your heart or whispering from your Soul.
There is bigger creative work you are wanting to do. There are parts of you that are emerging and needing your attention. A deeper stirring is waking up right below the surface and what you scheduled that day doesn’t interest you anymore.
But you put it off. Tell yourself you will make time tomorrow. But you aren’t fooling anyone.
What do you want? I mean really want? At the first transformational workshop I ever did this was the question on Day 5 – What do you want? I remember at that time it seemed like a simple enough question – I mean, isn’t it easy to know what I want?
But my experience of that process was much different than I expected.
My vivid visual memory of that process of What do you want? was a picture of me, standing on a chair – shouting as loud as I could with tears streaming down my face – “I want to love”. In fact, I shouted it over and over again (along with a room full of about 250 other participants who were shouting) so much that I lost my voice.
Are you feeling the call to make a difference in the world? To Play BIG…
If you’re like most of us, “changing the world” can feel daunting, to say the least. First of all, we have to combat the voice of our inner critic who might say, “Who me? Who do I think I am?” Then, if we can get beyond our own inner sabotage, there’s the overwhelm factor.
There are so many organizations, non-profits, charities, and NGOs doing great things. How do we know where to put our energy and time? If funds are tight, how can we give from our passion, skills and creativity?
Here are some ideas to get you started thinking about where you’d like to be of service, whether that’s in your local community or abroad.
- Ask yourself what upsets you about the world. What breaks your heart that you want to see stopped in your lifetime? Use the fuel behind your heartbreak to do something and take a stand. What if YOU are the leader you’ve been waiting for?
