Angst. Frustration. Fear. Anxiety. Worry about the future. Bills. Confusion. Lack of clarity. Muddy windshield. Running up a hill. Panting. Freaking out. Exhaustion. Running on empty. Mind crashes. Gremlins. Cookie Monsters. Fog. Bag lady syndrome. Unvortexy. Questioning. Everything.
When your fire goes cold.
How do you get it back?
When You’re not lit from within, you allow.
You activate patience.
You stop struggling to find your purpose, niche, path, calling.
You just trust.
And you wait.
You focus on the water. You.
And you stop worrying about the faucet. Your business / method of serving you.
You learn that some things cannot be rushed.
That where you are is exactly where you need to be and even if it feels like eternity while you’re treading water, you are hardly standing still. You are moving, ever so gently and slightly, making space for transformation to happen, a paradigm shift to come.
You practice kindness.
You stop saying things like “It’s been 2 years, I should be somewhere by now”. You ARE somewhere.
Just because you think you oughtta be elsewhere, doesn’t mean it’s true. Your vision is limited by your beliefs. Your belief is telling you this isn’t where you’re supposed to be.
And I say – yes you are. Right here, in this murkiness. Confusion. Wonderment. Impatience.
You are exactly where you are meant to be.
Not forever, just for now.
And do what inspires you or makes you a little happier in the moment. Forget about tomorrow.
Play BEING now.
Cos I PROMISE you this.
I’ve seen it! Your face alive with joy. Your heart racing fast and the glow around you as you come into it. Your passion! Your excitement! That feeling of exhilaration in which you know you own the world and nothing, no one, not even you, can keep you from your destiny. Your reason for being. The happiness and aliveness that BUBBLES forth from you. The magnetic aura that surrounds one living their dream. The irrestible force of energy that you are.
And your fabulous Success!
As defined by YOU. Sweet, delicious, evocative, soul satisfying, enlivening, liberating, accomplishing, giddy, giggly, punch-the-air-wahoo-exuberance, soft, gentle, a slow smile spreading.
It’s powerful, beautiful, strong and enrolling. It evokes ferocious passion, huge love and strong belief.
I’ve seen it. In you. And you will too. Much, much more than the glimpses you’ve seen so far.
When you step back, stop reaching, stop grasping.
And allow it.
Instead of recalling times you achieved a goal, remember times things came to you because you LET them. Then allow more —Martha Beck via Laura Gevanter
(Ps: I’m not saying “don’t do anything” – I’m saying stop trying and stop struggling. Put your attention elsewhere and do something that raises your vibration – a walk, a phone call, dancing, a nap, anything that gets you in a better feeling state momentarily. That’s allowing.)
Now it’s your turn: what do you do when you’ve lost your spark? Do you have ways to get it back or do you back off? Do you meditate? Listen to music? Get a timer and get going anyways? How do you reconnect to your dreams or get inspired to act? Thanks for sharing!
