Over weekend I took several hours to get some writing completed that I have been wanting to do for several weeks.
I started writing a few times and was never able to make the kind of progress I was desiring.
What was different for me this time?
One, maybe two things…
First, I am a different person than I was several weeks ago. Actually I am a different person than I was when I woke up this morning!
So there is a different energy inside of me that supports me in completing all the tasks at hand.
What was really different for me is that my laptop decided to go to sleep and over the weekend I did not feel like sitting in my home office at my computer.
I get stir crazy sometimes! So I grabbed a stack of paper and drove to Whole Foods (did I mention I love it there?!).
I had all my notes from the 4 part audio series I created recently and I took out a piece of paper and I started writing. To my amazement the words just flowed out of me and before I knew it I had completed five separate marketing letters.
Sure … maybe it was because I was finally ready to knock these letters out but I think it is something much simpler than that!
I was holding a pen in my hand and writing the old fashioned way! Pen to paper writing! What a concept!
If I ever had any blocks with inspiration it is when I am writing marketing copy! So my laptop deciding to take a siesta and leading me to be inspired to simply write by hand was the best thing that could’ve happened.
In a way you can call it “downstream” writing for those of you who follow Abraham! For me it was the path of least resistance!
When I thought about it later I realized that holding the pen in my hand brought out my creativity. It allowed me to be inspired while I write because when I was a child I wrote with my bare hands too!
So I moved past a major stuck point to complete this writing because I listened to inspiration and I took immediate action!
Of course now I am getting ready to type my notes and then there will be some editing but I am much further than I would have been.
Maybe next time I will be inspired how to write just as quickly while I type!
And it sure would be great to have a working laptop again!
Love and Inspiration!
Last week on a teleclass I was asked if intuition and inspiration are the same and I admitted that it was something that I had been pondering recently.
I said that intuition is something that we have a feeling about … maybe there is a decision that we are trying to make and then we get the answer. Sometimes we meet someone and know instantly about whether we want to associate with this person. For many it is a feeling in the pit of the stomach and that is why intuition is often referred to as a “gut” feeling.
Inspiration is something totally different.
A few years ago I had been pondering the concept of where money comes from in the spiritual sense. Then one day I was standing in my kitchen and I asked this question outloud. I received an answer that told me to interview a series of experts in the field and I said to myself ..”OK.” Then an idea popped into my head that said “Why don’t you interview them and create an audio series and then sell it.”
I stood there just pondering this idea that came through and hit me on my head. I call it getting “zinged!” And I thought about it and made the decision to get started and within 24 hours had already lined up half of the speakers.
When you take immediate and bold action there is a divine flow from the universe that supports your efforts.
So next time you are wondering … “Is it inspiration or is it intuition?” Just tune in…This raises your awareness.
I do believe at times there is a fine line and it is probably not important to know and label whether something is intuition or inspiration.
The most important thing to remember is that we LISTEN and TAKE APPROPRIATE INSPIRED ACTION!
Recently I was inspired to go out in my garden and pull the many weeds that had been growing. It was really interesting because I had been dreading it for weeks as I watched the weeds grow tall and wide.
When I started pulling weeds it was refreshing and it felt as if I was pulling weeds from my mind. There was a woosh of energy that kept pushing me to do something I would have preferred to hire a gardener for. I began to really enjoy myself and even pulled up a stool to sit on because I was getting tired after spending much more time in the garden than I had planned!
In one way I was really excited I waited so long because some of weeds were long enough to grab several bunches at a time so it was going much faster than I expected.
And then it happened!
It started raining and I did not mind. In fact I kept going and it started to rain really hard and I was just loving it. I had never done anything like that before and it was so exhilarating. My clothes and hair were completely drenched and I was covered with mud.
Fortunately I was wearing my waterproof hiking shoes that went up over my ankles and when I stood up my shoes completely submerged in the earth and I was hysterical with laughter and wished someone could have been there to witness my playfulness and my joyfulness.
This could never have happened had I gone out to pull weeds when I did not feel the inspiration to do it. This is what told me to put on those hiking shoes and to wear the jeans I wore!
When I had enough in the garden I hosed myself down to get all the mud off of me and felt like a child who was having the time of her life!
After I showered I wrapped towels around me and relaxed in a dark room and it reminded me when I traveled to Calistoga, California and spent some time in a spa that all began with being totally submerged in a bathtub of mud! After that I gave myself a pedicure!
Then I relaxed on the lounge chair in my den and looked out at the garden. It was so clean and fresh and I felt the same way.
What I realized in that moment is that I felt close to mother earth in a way that was very new to me and I could’ve sat there for hours except I was getting really hungry!
Usually I drive to Whole Foods or the Chinese restaurant around the corner to pick up my favorite food and this day I felt different and wanted something to match how I felt.
All of a sudden I thought about a Vietnamese restaurant I had not been to in over a year and realized that was where I wanted to be. This particular restaurant is about 20 minutes from my house and near the nursery I like to buy my plants from and it is in a wonderful part of town … lots of really good energy!
So that is what I did and I thoroughly enjoyed myself and then I went to Whole Foods for dessert and shared my story with a friend!!
The entire day and evening was completely inspired from first going out into the garden to my “spa” treatment for myself to eating at restaurant I love with all the tiny details in between. And the deep relaxation and living meditation was immense and pleasurable beyond all measure!
If you enjoyed my story do let me know and I would love to hear any stories you have about living an inspired day!
Love and Inspiration!
I began this blog in December of 2008 about the time I was getting ready to create my Spiritual Grid Manifestation DVD and as much as I wanted to write more often I did not. As I reflect I realize that there was so much that I was not clear about at that time.
That is one of the gifts of time. It gives us great perspective.
As I have been shifting gears in how I help people shift into who they came here to be I am making a commitment to write more often here on this blog and in other ways.
I’ll be speaking about what I know best … Divine Inspiration.
Some of you may relate more if I tell you that connecting to your Divine Inspiration is about connecting to your Creativity!!
Creativity is what we are here for. We are each creating our lives in each and every moment whether we are aware of it or not!
Sometimes I will be sharing a story about something or someone that inspired me and how and why.
Other times I may tell you about an experience that I had during that day that is related to inspiration.
What I really look forward to sharing with you is how I live in my inspiration on a moment to moment basis just about everyday.
It could be about my spontaneous decision to take a walk, buy a cup of coffee at Whole Foods or scale a building … LOL …last night a friend of mine told me about the famous French Spiderman whom he met in person once!
You never know who you are going to see or what you are going to learn and how this will change your life or someone else’s life for the better.
I am ready to really stand for myself in what I came here to do. It has been a very long journey and I know there is so much more for me to learn and I look forward to learning with you.
If you like what I write and if it inspires you in anyway I would like to know. This further inspires me.
It has taken me a long time to align myself and my work with my true core gift … this ability to connect with this deeper part of me and live in inspiration.
You can live in inspiration too. As I look back to my childhood … that is decades! … I can see that I was always connected to this deeper part of myself and it is something that I have learned to develop over my lifetime.
This occurred with the practice of being in business and creating a multitude of tangible products and services. Sometimes they worked out really well and other times I fell flat on my you know what!
I learned from each of these experiences all in the expectation that I would serve others in the area of personal growth.
So I continue that now by helping to open you to your divine inspiration so that you may continue to create your life consciously whether you want to expand your business, change your career or job or want to be happier.
Maybe you just want to have more fun and more time to play! I know I do!
Let’s do it together!
Divine Inspiration is my passion. How can I serve you?
To Your Divine Inspiration!
Over the past 26 years as an entrepreneur I have had the joyful (and sometimes exasperating!) experience of being blessed with a natural gift to receive divine inspiration.
The reason I say exasperating is because it took me nearly two decades to really understand my gift and how I could harness my energy properly to create inspiring products and services.
I’ve been amazed at the products I have created over the years … all of them related to personal growth, spiritual healing and the body.
After so many years in the creation process I have been divinely inspired to coach those who are interested in knowing just how I do this.
The truth is that everyone came into this world equipped to be divinely inspired in any area of life. In order to get past all the stuckness and uncertainty and fear that springs forth … especially during these times … requires knowing that the best solutions to life’s challenges come in the form of divine inspiration.
Opening to your divine inspiration and learning how to harness it properly will create your most fulfilling life!
That is the theme of my new website as you can see!
I am happy to let you know that next week on June 2, 2010 at 7pm central I am leading a preview to my 4 part teleclass series: “Open To Divine Inspiration”
I’ll be discussing the “7 Signs of Being Stuck and Uninspired” and then I will giving you some divinely inspired strategies for beginning to open to the wonderful flow of divine inspiration. Then I will be filling you in on the details of the Opening To Divine Inspiration teleclass series.
Are you ready to shift your reality from the powerlessness of stuckness into the creative flow of divine inspiration?
If you are I look forward to having you join me!
Lets get some spark lighting up the universe! Lets shift this place!
To your divine inspiration!
What an amazing year 2008 has been! At the end of 2007 I kept saying it was going to be a Great 2008 and yet I had no idea just how great it was going to be. Many exciting things happened in 2007 and I was still in the process of seeing how it all fit together.
As January rolled around I was asking how I was going to find the time to really put some jet fuel into the journey I had been traveling. The business I had at the time was consuming so much of my energy and it was not giving me pleasure anymore. After 17 years I was just too tired but did not know what to do with it. For a few years I had considered what it would be like without the business but kept it as a security blanket in a way.
As mid-February approached I became really clear. I was going to close it. Yep! Close the doors and write a message on the website that said “Gone Fishing!”
Then a out of the blue a brilliant thing happened. I had an inspiration and I listened! For a few years the idea of selling the business passed through my mind many times. I even had several people suggest I sell it. But it did not seem possible. I even once spoke to a business broker but it did not feel right.
What really happened is that I was ready to LET GO after 17 years of a lot of very hard work and unacceptable pressures from clients. Once I was WILLING to let go to pursue my passions, the universe stepped in and said in its quiet, sweet, assertive voice – “SELL IT!”
In that moment I knew it was the voice of DIVINE inspiration and I took immediate action. I listed it on ebay and was contacted by a business broker and before it was all said and done I sold that business for 4 times what I listed it on ebay for! The entire process was 3 months from concept to sale.
When you have the power of DIVINE inspiration behind you all that you just do is BEGIN.
Were there many more things going on that helped me make that sale so smooth and easy. Yes and I will be talking about those things here on this blog.
In the meantime I want to ask you, “What are you feeling inspired to take action on?”
What is stopping you?
Let me know. I would like to hear what you have to say as I am creating programs from inspiration to help.
I’ll be in touch soon with details on my new manifestation technology.
Even Dr. Joe Vitale says “Your approach of using the body as a manifestation tool is truly different and very unique.”
That’s Good Life!
