Magic appears at the intersection between passion and action.
For this new decade, ya think it’s time to let go of the old stories that have held you back for so many years, stopped you from playing bigger, feeling happier, taking risks?
Years ago (before my near-death experience) I had a very intense and special New Years Eve when I came face-to-face with my own self-limiting thoughts and behaviors. That night, after deep contemplation and cathartic releasing, I made a massive commitment to say YES to Life instead of continuing to hold myself back and play small. (If you’re curious to know what I did and what happened as a result, check out this video).
I’m returning to this yet again – and I’m ready to say YES to yet another new level of joy and success and creative intensity for my life. I want that for you too – or whatever version that might be for you (if that’s what you want and are ready for).
So how the hell do we shift into that new, more luscious gear?
Step One Is Passion.
What are you passionate about?
What are you curious about?
What stirs your heart and imagination?
Get clear on that. Sound simple? IT’S NOT. That’s why people skip this step. It sounds so easy – because who doesn’t know what they want? The answer is: Pretty much everyone to one degree or another.
Get clear, my friend. DREAM. Use your juicy imagination to conjure up new outcomes and situations that would interest you and light you up. Feel how it feels when you imagine doing or being or having those things. Clarity, clarity, and more clarity.
Step Two Is Action.
What are you willing to DO toward the realization of those passions and curiosities?
It’s so fun and easy to learn about things, read books about it, contemplate taking those Big Steps, and make detailed plans… It’s a whole other ballgame to actually TAKE ACTION.
But that’s where the magic exists.
Are you willing to actually make the time and take the necessary steps to create a more inspired and joyful life? What ARE those steps? (More clarity here…).
In Between Steps 1 and 2…
Now. In between Step 1 and 2 is the releasing of the old stories, the habits, the resentments and grudges and victim stories and hurts and blaming and pain pain pain.
Do this RELEASING to whatever degree you are able, and in whichever way(s) you know how: Counseling, EFT-Tapping, meditation, psychedelic therapy, de-looping. (Note: Drinking extra alcohol and shopping at sales and going for another hour of porn isn’t going to release that stuff, fyi).
The way to the other side where the light is shinier and warmer… is THROUGH it. Yes that stinks. But it actually feels GOOD. You will breathe deeper, sleep more soundly, be more fun to be around, smile more, your load will lighten. It’s energy, my friend. Let it go.
Actually those 3 steps/parts are interchangeable; they don’t have to be in order. Just START. Release, Dream, Take Action. Mix and match. Keep doing it.
Then notice how things change in your life.
