#1 Tip for Creating the Life You Desire-(Let Go and Trust that Spirit Has a Plan!)!
Updated: April 12, 2016
Just got back from Red Deer Alberta demonstrating Messages from Spirit for a hospital fund- raiser. I just love the mid-west hospitality and I had such kind and generous hosts and an overall great experience. And, had I not busted my toe (again) last week, might have succumbed to the call of those cowboy boots!
I’ve been doing a lot of re-educating and reminding myself lately, dusting off old out of print books on metaphysics, New Thought, and reality creation. A few people have asked me lately what my greatest influences are in my work. My favorite authors are still Wallace D Wattles, Charles Haanel, Catherine Ponder, Raymond Holliwell, John Randolph Price, James Allen and Florence Scovell Shinn.
My work and my core beliefs about the world has mostly been informed by Science of Mind, A Course in Miracles, the 12 steps, Carl Jung and because I’m a science geek – researchers like Michael Talbot’ (The Holographic Universe has to be my fave book on quantum theory of all time), Dr Amit Goswami, Dr. Ervin Lazlo, Lynn McTaggart and others. ( I am sure I will come up with more)
These writers, scholars, and spiritual programs have informed my understanding of the spiritual and mental physics that inform the material realm essential for us to know if we’re going to empower ourselves to choose our experience and manifest our reality.
Yes there are so many teaching the same things but I need to hear the essential truths repeatedly and from different angles. The longer I do this the more I want to learn. The minute we think we know it all is when we get into trouble.
Everybody I speak to lately, either in a private reading or coaching session talks about their desire to create a life with meaning, authenticity and tangible prosperity. Why have desires if we can’t move them into the material world?
We’re here as teeny sparks of Spirit getting to play in the Garden of imagination, intuition, inspiration and manifestation. Desire that comes from the soul is Spirit whispering to us and urging us to grow and experience life.
My coaching clients come to me looking to make a massive impact on the world. So what kind of strategy fits everyone regardless of the degree in which you want to influence the world (or just yours)? One essential truth! Sure goals, performance and staying power, clarity of vision, focus and action are important- nothing will happen if you sit and dream in your chair.
BUT- the essential thing to remember? Allowing, letting go, releasing expectations, keeping the focus on the essence not the form. Miracles rarely come in the exact package you envision.
Think about it – this week as we enter a new phase of mercury retrograde – always a perfect time to go over things. Do a timeline on your most important manifestations. How did it feel before the moment you saw the co-creation take shape?
Here is what some of you said in last week’s blog:-
“Pretty much everything in my life has been a case of getting the essence and not the particular form of what I wanted. Or I have gotten the form of what I wanted, but not via the particular route/means I expected. You’d think by now I’d know better. Learning to let go is an ongoing process”. – Beth
“My greatest lesson in this area was when I recently realized that everything good in my life had been manifested with a detached optimism; and that everything that I was striving for, working towards, etc… was as elusive to me at that moment as it had ever been. It was a profoundly meaningful and inward interpretation of “what we resist, persists.” I wouldn’t trade these lessons for anything”. – Ali
So I can say the same as these two – that I have co-created an extraordinary life- from drug addict to spiritual teacher and intuition expert; from a multiple rape survivor believing she would always be a victim to a woman with dignity and self worth married to her true soul mate; from a young aspiring singer who failed at her career to a recording artist on a major music label; from a girl who never fit, and felt she would never find purpose to a successful intuitive and coach with clients in 29 countries, a spiritual medium with my own TV show, and a Hay House author.
Not one of these manifestations came through chasing, through overt ambition or through a drive for success. As a matter of fact any time I pushed too much things ran away from me like I had the manifesting Cooties!!
Everything I have today is because of my deep spiritual beliefs and surrendered optimism that the essence of my authentic drives will manifest in the appropriate form.
My job daily? Let go and let God.
So let’s hear from you. Tell me a story of what it was like when you chased something that didn’t happen but came back in the perfect form? A desire you held dear that manifested in a totally different way than expected.
And, if you’re feeling a little wonky around your desired outcomes this week? Repeat after me
Spirit has a plan. Spirit has a plan. Spirit has a plan.
Love to hear from you
