Good Morning! Saturdays will be the day that we throw a thought provoking question that has come up during the week of blogging. This week much conversation was generated (mostly between the blog writer princesses:) about the post Can or Will. In the post Fee stated that, “nothing is out of the realm of possibility if your intentions, hopes, and dreams are aligned with the Universe’s.”
So the question so many of us ask ourselves is, how do you know you’re aligned with the Universe?
All of us are unique and motivated differently. Some by security (“I need-ers”), happiness (“I feel-ers”), or intellectual curiosity (“I think-ers”), so there is no right way to know. But there are some benchmarks that can assist on your personal journey.
For those “I feel-ers”, is this something that you can visualize yourself doing everyday for the rest of your life? I don’t mean just consider or give thought to, I mean really, really know in your heart you’re exactly where you are supposed to be.
For those “I think-ers”, does this make perfect sense to you? Do you hit stumbling blocks and while you might be upset, you know in your head that it’s just something you will have to go through to meet your objective?
For those “I need-ers”, is this something that will allow you to feel the safety and security necessary to live each day comfortably in your world? Is there enough in the “emergency fund” to live should something catastrophic happen?
The reality is that if all your stumbling blocks are falling away, you are heading in the right direction. The Universe is aligned. Keep moving forward.
So lipstick chat it up, and share examples in your own life of times when you have “just known” this is where you should be. Your thoughts help us all grow together.
Aaaaaah the journey from thought to action. Sometimes the distance is remarkably short, and easily attainable. Other times, it just seems like WOW… are you freakin’ kidding me…can I really get there from here? I am here to tell you, oh yes you can. No, wait. I am here to tell you that…. oh yes you will!
This simple shift from “can” to “will” is just what we need to inspire and motivate. I can do a lot of things. That doesn’t mean that I will do it. But when I shift my thoughts and words to … I will do it, I make a commitment to myself and the Universe to create a conscious effort to do what I intended, and for me, my intentions are my hopes and dreams.
But the shift to I will, requires action. Here is where a lot of us get hung up. Fear, lack of confidence, well-meaning people telling you that your crazy idea just won’t work, detract us from our path and put the ka-bosh on our dreams. Shush all that negativity! (I’m waving my pink nailed hand with my “shush”!). Believe me when I tell you, nothing is out of the realm of possibility if your intentions, hopes and dreams are aligned with Universe’s. I will do it. Think of your most precious intention, and say out loud with me right now, “I will do it”! I didn’t hear you…say it out loud…. I WILL DO IT. Nice. Now, write it down. Yep, write it down, and read it everyday. Don’t lose the paper because we will come back to it at another blog. Now you are empowered to dream, create, aspire and inspire.
What do you intention today girlies?
