A really fun read from a very famous author “Artificial Insemination” : Black Rhino chuckle – from Wilbur Smith
I have just experienced the most amazing reminder about how answers are given to us. It is not a voice in your head, nor a booming message from the heavens. It is life that speaks to us, talking to us all the time. Here is how it happened.
I was walking a client to his car after a coaching session which he had specifically arranged to help him find direction in his working life. He felt stuck and totally unclear. We had a brilliant session, very specific, one in which so much was revealed to him – surprising stuff that he was taken aback to discover. As we stood next to the car saying goodbye, a flock of twenty or more cranes flew directly overhead, so low down we simply couldn’t have not noticed them flying in a perfect arrowhead formation.
Wow! If there was any doubt in his mind that his questions had been answered, the birds were sent to sweep that doubt away. How much more confirmation could one need that he had just found the right direction?
I had had the miracle of such things happening to me so many times, but I was gobsmacked at yet another brilliant example of how life gives answers. If we will only notice, if only we will accept. But we are often so busy. We is so much chatter in our heads that most of us miss most of it. So, if you want an answer will you stop and look around you from now on? Stop the endless chatter of your mind, and let nature and circumstances teach you. Will you drop your disbelief? Just accept life is mystical. Revel in it! If you can, what lies ahead is a juicy, rich adventure, specially tailored for your unique needs.
There is a door. That door is marked MY DESTINY, MY PASSION. You need to find it, and the good news is that you CAN find it. And it is easier than you probably think. The trick is to pull back the curtain that hides the door. That curtain is called MY MAIN HORRIBLE LIFE CIRCUMSTANCE. Yes! You have read right. Your main problem is a curtain, that when approached with the right mind set, can be pulled back to reveal the door to your destiny.
I discovered this by looking back on my own life path and realising that my divorce 30 years ago was THE most traumatic, challenging and difficult thing ever, but was THE turning point for me. I was left to fend for me and my children on my own – without emotional skills, money or qualifications. It was a do or die thing and the circumstances squeezed me, squeezed me tight, so tight I was forced to face the problems head on. No getting away from myself anymore! I had to ask myself what I was going to do about my life. By deciding that I was going to make it, and make it big, I set in motion a process of mining myself and my talents. Suddenly I was discovering all sorts of things I could do well – and delightfully – enjoy too! Suddenly I was becoming a high powered business woman, aerobics instructor, course leader, speaker and author. I was flying, I was happy. Yes I had daily challenges, and still many personality flaws to work on, but I also had a vision and the motivation to achieve it. My problems had become my delicious destiny. Big problems are a psycho-spiritual device to create a focus point for your life-learning. They are also a mechanism to make sure you bring forth your gifts, for your personal use, and to share with the world.
Tip: go to a curtain in your house, close it and step back, saying to yourself my biggest problem is like this curtain. Then deliberately open the curtain saying to yourself: THROUGH MY MAIN HORRIBLE PROBLEM, I NOW FIND AND OPEN THE DOOR TO MY PASSION AND LIFE DESTINY. IT IS EASY. If you do this, the information held in your cells will shift. Do this often. Involving your body in your decision is potent. Energy will start to flow and soon the right guidance will appear in your world – a soft idea floating into your mind, a friend who mentions something, a comment in a film, a hunch……
I was having one of those days — maybe you’re familiar with them? — when I felt like a passenger on a fast, jerky subway train, holding the handrail tight just to stay standing, each turn throwing me off balance.
I gave a presentation that received a standing ovation and left the stage on top of the world. Then I read an angry email from someone and became angry myself. Following that, I did a fun on-radio interview and I was energized. A little later, I received feedback that I talked too much in a meeting and I was embarrassed and disappointed in myself… Download Article or read more Peter Bregman Stuff
All too often I hear personality and ego berated, or at least talked down. Nonsense! All great men and women have great personalities.
Could Nelson Mandela have achieved what he has without his magical charisma? No!
Could Einstein have been the ground breaking scientist without his multifaceted specificity? No!
Personality/ego are containers to hold Divine Energy. The bigger the personality, the bigger the power. So turf ideas that you should be a transparent nothingness and be bold in being yourself, loving your personality and all the richness it brings to others.
‘Am I taking the right actions to achieve my financial goals? Show me clearly, very clearly what I should do each day, every day, to achieve my money goals.’
It places your attention on what you don’t want, and that’s a BIG problem,
It closes your body-energy down, creating restriction and blocks,
And those blocks become the mould for your manifestation.
Pull yourself together!
