Who Do You Want to Bring to This Moment?

A quick post to talk for a sec about inspiration.

There are a lot of things said about inspiration. Here are my thoughts: The better we tune ourselves to aliveness, the more Inspiration we can “catch.” Second, the word is about breathing. And spirit. Third, having an Inspiration Mindset is about living this question. “Who do you want to bring to this amazing moment?

It’s a moment by moment choice. I chose just a little while ago when my partner was talking to me while I was catching up on my Facebook feed. I missed the first few words she said and wanted to be all pissy and annoyed because her talking was like a buzzing in my brain that I just wanted to swat so I could keep spacing out on social media. I looked up at her face. She was trying to live her life. That’s all she was doing. I softened my face. I asked a pertinent question. (Not, “What?!”) I listened. I responded. She was no longer distracting me from my distractions. She was a real person. Whom I love. That’s who I want to bring to this moment. That’s what I want to be: Love.

How about you?

Sometimes you need to be reminded that there is something Greater afoot, Something more powerful than you that is orchestrating life. 

Now is one of those times. 

Even if you think you are working in concert with the Universe, take a moment to check in on how loosely you are holding the outcome, and how much effort you are using to keep things on track. 

You may feel you need to work hard right now, and that is okay. Remember that even though you may need to employ a certain amount of tension to stay afloat, you are being carried by a great current. 

But assuming you are not literally being swept away, you can afford to take at least a restful few moments and allow yourself to be supported, if only by a cushion and a couch. While you are resting, connect with Something larger. Ask for help and continued support in your endeavors. 

You may have developed a belief and coping strategy that says you are in this alone. The Universe is inviting you to partner with it, encouraging you to cross some tasks off your list and give them to the Universe to take care of. 

Above all, know that no matter what the outcome, you will be okay.

The Universe Adores You

Soul Messages are a pack of 44 cards that are lavish love notes for the soul. They grew out of a workshop I developed in 2012, From Resolution To Revolution, in which the traditional New Year’s resolution gets a millennium update as participants crafted their highest visions for what they would like their lives to be. While the participants created a traditional I-statement affirmation, the Soul Messages provided that extra cosmic hug for the aspects of their personalities not yet welcomed to the party, which often take the form of self-sabotage, procrastination, and daydreaming without taking action. I decided to publish the message cards as a way of inspiring others as they navigate change. My feeling is, it’s always good to know that “The Universe adores you.”
