So here’s the thing. We’re all gonna die someday and to spend our precious moments on this incredible Planet in these miraculous bodies worrying about what people will think about us if we do this or don’t do that makes no sense to me. We are miracles. Literally. Just think about it. We’re flying through the cosmos on this gorgeous Earth ship.
I’ve done a lot of interviews over the years and this one on Dare to Dream Radio with Debbi Dachinger really stands out for me. I had an absolute blast with her, sharing stories, offering techniques and sharing in a super juicy conversation about the magic of life.
This is an experience that will be common for anyone growing into their dreams and potential. As we step into new visions and bring dreams to life, often times we will hear those old voices of doubt and insecurity coming up. The feelings associated with these negative thoughts are usually anxiety, feeling low, foggy, heavy or sad. It is seriously such a mental and emotional strain to have to listen to everyday; not to mention the buzz kill to my life!
At first the natural tendency is to just keep truckin’. To plug away at our projects, ignore it and move forward despite the discomfort. But as the doubt wraps itself around the things we’re trying to accomplish, it becomes nearly impossible to continue on. It’s like wading through quicksand or the Swamps of Sadness in the Neverending Story. The energy of doubt eventually weighs us down until we either sink or deal with it.
I spent the afternoon out in the forest, having a personal ceremony for a new chapter I’m entering in my life. I sat myself in a grove of trees, which my wife and I call “The Three Sisters” because there are three massive cedar trees in a trinity.
I began with a prayer offering and then the moment I sat down with my back against the trunk of one of these massive tree Mamas I heard a snapping of branches high above me where a huge limb of the tree snapped off and was falling directly towards me. It’s funny because I didn’t panic, I didn’t move, I just watched this branch sailing down and CRASH, it landed a foot to my left and blocked the entranceway to this grove of trees.
It is really easy to fall into the pattern of thinking the same stuff all the time and it’s even easier to think Aw shit, why me or not this when things don’t go the way we want.
I made a list of 20 simple, yet life-changing questions that will help you cultivate more magic in your daily life and stay on track for living the best life ever. Print them out and use them often. You are powerful. Always remember that.
The thing is, when we are in fear mode, it stops us from thinking clearly and it certainly blocks our flow of communication with Spirit or our intuition. Life becomes a foggy haze and we’re unable to see our next steps with confidence and clarity.
There was a time in my life when I felt like a victim to circumstances. This is a horrible feeling that caused me to feel powerless, deflated and as though my life or well being was dependant on someone saving me.
It wasn’t until I took 100% responsibility for myself that my life took a 180 degree turn for the better. Meaning, I acknowledged and accepted that all of the choices I made up until this present moment caused my life to be what it was and is and if I want my life to change for the better then I have to make better choices that support what I want to experience.
