Write a big sign and note to your Soul
‘Am I taking the right actions to achieve my financial goals? Show me clearly, very clearly what I should do each day, every day, to achieve my money goals.’
Keep repeating the question, never ever trying to find the answers yourself. It’s an answer from your Soul you’re seeking. These answers arise in unexpected moments of being relaxed and at ease. After a time, it could be a day, a fortnight or 6 weeks, an intuitive flash will give you the answer. Yay!
Got this on my email today. Makes one think, not so. Humbles one too…
Yesterday I went to the gym planning to have a long steam bath after my workout. So after my yoga session I trotted along to the cloakrooms only to see, standing right in the middle of the entrance, a big sign ‘MEN AT WORK’! what I thought?! No way! How does this work in a ladies cloakroom? I wasn’t the only one protesting inwardly, in fact a whole bunch of buck naked women were complaining their teeth off, talking to each other about how its ridiculous that they can’t have a shower after a workout, and how dare management do something like this without warning.
As I sat on the bench the picture of bliss and relaxation in that steam room dissolved in my mind, leaving me wet with sweat and limp with disappointment. (yes, it is only a steam bath, but still, it was a treat to myself after slogging for days…). However, since I fully believe that all things come together for my good (a biblical concept), my disappointment merged into acceptance, acceptance into action, and I happily decided to have a swim at home instead. However not so happy were the gaggle of naked women whose protestations, loud ones, slid through the passages of the ladies change rooms as I left. How silly, they were arguing with the attendant there, the attendant who was only implementing management’s decision??? I ask you? Likely that these very same wingeing ladies would be the first to complain if the showers stopped working!!!
Having been a similar moaner groaner in my life (my past life that is, er mostly) I’m not blaming them, but I notice how easy it is for human beings to resist, resist and resist – anything that goes contrary to plan is resisted! But what if the maintenance crew working that day was THE plan: the plan to make sure you weren’t driving home an hour later; or stepping off a side walk in front of an out of control taxi? To live in tune with yourself, your Soul and life, best not to resist what’s trying to happen. Consider the lady whose dawdling child made her a few minutes late for work – at the twin towers – on 9/11!
So maintenance men in your cloakroom, being stuck in traffic or not getting that job you so want. Relax. It’s time to live life in tune with Life! It holds a much broader plan for you life than taking a shower on time.
I wrote an magical little book in 2001. Ride the River. How I got to do that was out of the ordinary to say the least. Most authors gather information and then sit to write their words. My first books were much like that, but this one was different. All I did was connect to a concept. The rest came through me. This is how it happened.
On the 1st of January 2001 I wrote a note to God. ‘Dear God, I am ready to unravel the mysteries of life. Teach me and I will teach others.’ This note wasn’t planned or even thought out. I was busying myself around the house when it simply arrived in my consciousness. I just said yes to the impulse, grabbed pen and paper and wrote it down. I still have that scribbled note in my papers, and looking back I see that this was a holy moment. We all have them. They take place when we align ourselves to our Soul. Sometimes that alignment happens by grace and other times by personal choice, however if we say a full yes to a holy moment it takes our lives to a new level in remarkable way, and that’s exactly what happened to me.
At the time I was living in Cape Town running a business in motivational training. By April of that year, the note long forgotten, I was getting ready to attend a friend’s wedding up country. Just before I left I ran a disciplinary process at the office. I found this extremely difficult and the incident left me upset, confused and drained. I left town with a clear awareness that some things needed to change and now was the time.
Fortuitously my short vacation gave me space to take stock of my life, in particular the amount of mental, emotional and physical energy I was putting in to keep my business going. I started asking myself, and God, why it was that I was always pushing myself way beyond what was healthy – working too hard, too long with not nearly enough rewards. I remember a moment of absolute clarity in my hotel room when I wrote on a piece of yellow post-it note “no more push-push, I want to be in the flow.”
No more push push! Gosh, how those words changed things. They became my mantra and without realising it they were God’s first answer to my New Year note. I had started to ‘unravel the mysteries of life’. I stopped pushing and started riding. What happened then was short of miraculous. All sorts of unexpected events started to occur and soon my entire life, my view of it was changed forever. The exact details are fascinating, and when I think back I always feel inspired. I want to share that true story, the hope and inspiration with you, so I continue the story in my next blog. In the meantime, please visit my facebook page and support me as I set out to create a new exciting energy around the book that unravelled those mysteries I spoke to God of. RIDE THE RIVER – The definitive guide to aligning to your Soul, a river of Divine Energy, to achieve success.
Over the years I have come to realise that Soul is an over-lighting field of intelligence. Soul is a stream of energy, a Life Force. And it’s unique to you, holding unlimited information and energy specific to your life. Soul has all the answers.
St Augustine said that ‘The Soul is the life whereby we are joined to the body.‘ However many people have an unconscious notion that the Soul is an invisible person floating around in the ethers somewhere. Problem with this thinking is that it construes on Soul the limits we experience as humans.
Since Soul is the unlimited part of ourselves, with access to much much more, it’s important to build the right mental images of Soul to start with. Thinking of Soul as an amazing and all informed field of intelligence, and as a never ending source of wonderful energy, is the way to go. In thinking this way you open yourself to a fabulous and empowering relationship with your Soul. And having the right relationship with your Soul makes all the difference in your life.
