I have lately been looking for messages that cut through my own crap. This one ABSOLUTELY spoke to me (thanks Jen!). It made me chuckle actually as I TOTALLY agree (even if I sometimes don’t want to admit it) As I come to the end of my blessed coaching program, I am looking to drop off as many suitcases of my own drama (to date) that I am able in order to find greater liberation, in order to prepare me the space for my future experiences.
I was thinking about it – If life were like a Chic-Fil-A drive thru … I feel where I am is pulled up to the menu… browsing at all the tasty options, salivating at what I know is around the bend. (DAYDREAMING/CREATING LISTS/CUTTING OUT THINGS YOU WANT FROM A CATALOG/WINDOW SHOPPING ONLINE) I am in the process of sharing my order with voice on the other end of the speaker box (SENDING IT INTO THE UNIVERSE) … and preparing to hand over my moolah (TAKING ACTION) in order to receive the yummy goodness. (YAY!)
—>How am I going to receive my yummy goodness if I don’t TAKE ACTION? (answer: I’m not)
How can you expect your life to look any different if you don’t TAKE INSPIRED ACTION! I mean, I’m just like the next person that I would be elated if I won the lottery but HOW am I going to even have a chance if I don’t DO anything about it? If I don’t play? I would love for a lump sum to drop in my lap as well… or someone from Positive Living Television calls me that they want me to complete some segments for the show.. or that someones going to take it on themselves to get Peter and I pregnant…. yea, that would be nice. HOW am I going to get any of this accomplished without taking some sort of inspired action. Yes, miracles DO happen – ABSOLUTELY. I’m talking about everyday life. The ins and outs of everyday life.
and for the record….NO, I didn’t say work.
I mean take ACTION! Doesn’t that sound kinda more positive? I think so…. It makes me think that I’m some movie director and the set is quiet and I yell out … ACTION! Feels like movement to me, baby!
In the past month or two, I have heard a handful of people talk about how their waiting for the thing that they want to happen in their lives. Their just going to wait until it happens. They say they just know it will, but they just have to wait long enough. I think that’s amazing. I guess I just wonder how much faster this thing could come to them if they would take inspired action. If that’s what they want.. by all means, I wish them luck. For ME, it just seems that I could really miss something AH-MAZING if I was contented to sit and wait. What opportunities to meet others, to adjust my vision… to feel grateful… would I miss if I was staring at one spot on the wall?
I AM the common denominator in the scenarios of my life that are still unresolved or have me feeling agitation. I am the ONLY one that can surface them and look at them as a way of approaching it differently. I am the only one who can take inspired action. NO ONE ELSE. JUST ME.
“But Kerilyn… you always talk about your faith… where is your faith in all this?”
GREAT QUESTION SELF! (no, I promise i’m not crazy.. High on life people.. High on life.)
(Going to wax some of my joyous roller coaster self on you now.. for those without current faith *KUDOS & MUCH RESPECT* – just sharing what regularly brings me joy.)
WELL… I believe that I am a partner with my faith. Two equal parts of one driving force. There’s one part me, a “superhero” dropped from out of the sky – with powers of intuition and trust/surrender , clairaudience, CHOICE, forgiveness and the uncanny ability to NEVER give up, even when the chips are down. (okay maybe at first.. but I know I will always get back up) KNOWING that there’s always a chance I will encounter an opportunity that leaves me vulnerable (uh what up cryptonite?) Then there is my faith, the other part – (God, The Universe, Reincarnation,Sacred Contracts, Akashic Records, Energy, Spirit, Karma, Radical Forgiveness, the Illusion of life, and Ultimate Passion and love)
In my understanding, I cannot separate these two parts. Even when it’s raining, I stub my toe and I’m boo hoo hooing all the way home. (which happens) We are ONE. I AM my faith. I am never without it.. even when I forget. It’s when I remember again that I have the power to unite with my other part… that I feel empowered. Scared sometimes, yes but still empowered.
THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE… IS ME.
IF IT IS MEANT TO BE… IT IS UP TO ME.
HOT diggity… saying that, whether out loud or to myself makes me feel so damn good.
I guess what i’m saying is… whatever it is you want to accomplish in your life… more money, a glorious relationship… vacation homes in Aspen, a prized winning Irish Retriever (is there even such a thing?) , work to remember that YOU (with your trusty partner by your side – whatever it is you believe in) are the one that will make it happen. YOU are the one who is in the physical… your faith works THROUGH you. When you take inspired action out of your desire to LIVE in greater joy… your life will be a series of joyous opportunities to drop the drama off at the door. Amen to that my people.
*for those of you with HIGH levels of resistance to what I’m saying…I absolutely accept you might feel differently. Totally respect that – part of choice is to believe different things (Thank God!) – please share with me your blog or leave a comment so we can continue the conversation! (I ask no preaching or threatening statements.. my place; my rules.)
