We all know what to do but a lot of times we don't want to do it because it's going to shatter our life or the people around us or
it's scary as shit bc you only get to take one step at a time + you can't see the whole plan!!
So many examples for my life.
Leaving the whole music business industry in New York ---I knew it. I was disconnected & done.
But everything I worked for up to that point was for THAT.
That was on MY LIFE.
The contacts + constant networking
what I did in my free time
my social life
Why I moved there
Commuting 2 hours there + 2 hours back.
MY everything was based around the music business industry to get ahead.
Everything I did every minute of every second
It is what I went to college for!
NYC, at a real deal big ass record label WAS my ultimate goal!
No one understood I wanted out, but I deeply knew it.
I was young too, so people didn't think it was a cool move to change my entire direction. It didn't make any sense to anyone. People wished for that job, that lifestyle, whatever.
I had no backup plan or 5 step blue print of how-to.
I was frustrated,confused, and had no money saved to take a breather to try out something else. I didn't have any kind of tribe around me who encouraged or uplifted this KNOWING, but I deeply knew that chapter of my life was done.
Ending long time friendships that were just DONE.
Saying hell NO to things, that aren't socially or traditionally acceptable or "right" etiquette & feeling absolutely secure + at peace with that "no."
Call it God call it so call intuition call it wisdom call it energy
Call it our inner gps, spirit, our angels, the divine, your soul....
PS I call it the Holy Spirit/ God
It's a deep knowing and feeling.
But a lot of times we prolong it
Shush it down
Or feel like it's "wrong"
Because we want evidence and proof and a blueprint and detailed ways of how to go about it ...
It will disappoint others around us
Or we are being prideful
We worry How it's going to rock and shake the people we love around us
We don't have explanations + a power point presentation to answer the why & how come's.
We are worried because:
It's going to completely flip our life and our world upside down. In every way. everything has to change & be new.
But we KNOW.
Deciding to Move.
Shouting loudly about who you really are.
Taking your business in a different direction than when you started.
Wanting out, from your job, a relationship.
It's kind of a form of self betrayal...
because you hear that knowing and that vibe but sometimes we listen to the fear!!
Fear could be:
Oh my God everybody is going to think you're a joke
Everyone thinks your life is one way and you're about to shatter that image
and this is what you're going to have to do now to create this change
and here's all the puzzle pieces you're going to have to rearrange
and here's the bills + responsibilities you still have to pay + take care of
and here's the people you might disappoint and
Here are the 1000 things you might have to feel and do!!
And the feelings. You're going to have to feel tough feelings + go through that if you choose this decision...
you have a choice:
Do you listen to your intuition/God speaking or do you listen to the outside world where the fears and the TO do lists are??
The more and more you listen to your intuition and your spirit --
Each step leads to the next step and the next step!
And I always say, the more you practice, the more confident you become in that skill!!
You live a more truthful
specifically created and designed for you and your talents and gifts and purpose by your Creator.
And you live a life of passion + service that exactly is where you thrive!!
You live a life more full of love and light when you listen to that knowing.
And the result, for me, I am more loudly me & joyful + happy + PEACEFUL + excited + enthusiastic!!
There is a natural flow to it all.
I am forever changed and because I follow that knowing ----I don't fit in my old life anymore. And it continues through each season of my life.
Decisions to listen & show up or be scared + listen to the fear!
Start with small things like what you're going to eat for dinner
which driving direction you should take
what you're gonna wear that day
If someone's vibe when you meet is vibing with yours
Choosing between two movies to see
Practice. Practice. Practice.
The more you practice with the little things
It becomes natural when you make decisions with your kids
and pretty much everything in life!
And- ta -dah-----you don't really care if anyone "gets it" "likes it" "agrees" because it's TRUE + personal + being + KNOWING for you!
It steers you into the blessings + Magic + experiences that serve you best and serve others best!!
