What are you creating in your life?

Now, you might be thinking:

“What do you mean – what am I creating? I’m just living. I’m trying to be on my highest path, but most of the time I’m just doing what I’m obligated to do. I’m also trying to make a little bit of money and build my practice.  But what am I creating?  What do you mean?”

What I mean is that whether you realize it or not, you are creating your life. You are creating your experiences. You are creating your reality.

You have exactly the situations, the friends, the amount of money, worry, and love that you have created up to this point. See, many of us have lost our connection to creation – we’ve lost our ability to truly create. We really don’t have to create anything anymore. We just have to follow. We just have to react: just go to the meeting, say what you’ve already said a thousand times, just answer the text, send the email, drive there, go here – we’ve lost our sense of what it means to be the creator of our own lives.

How can you restore the power that you’re supposed to have to create whatever you’d like for yourself and your life?

1) The first thing to get is that you actually are the creator. If you’ve lost touch with this, then rekindle it. Deep down, you know this to be true. If you don’t believe me, then suspend your own belief for a minute, and then keep reading.

Try on that every single thing that you feel and that goes through your head – matters. Every single thing. The thought about that girl, the judgment about your body, the doubt about yourself, whatever it may be – it matters. It counts, big time.

Now, I probably don’t have to go too far to try to convince you of this. You’re probably living proof that the Law of Attraction is very real.  You know that you become what you think about. Yet, how conscious are you of it on a moment to moment basis?

“Our minds are always active anyway, so they might as well be focused on something worthwhile.”

-       from the movie, I heart Huckabees

So once you’re present to the fact that you are the one who is constantly creating your own reality, the next step is to go into Nothing.

2) Enter the Void

Emptiness is a concept that I’ve been sitting with all year long. Believe me, it hasn’t been easy. It’s much easier to be Something than to be Nothing. I’ve been studying Tai Chi intensely one on one with a master for the last year and a half. The whole point is to access a deeper sense of nothing to be able to work with the true “chi” – the energy of the universe – instead of our own. What I’ve learned is that if I’m working only with my own energy, it’s a pretty limited and finite thing. I mean, how long can you go before you need to rest or have another cup of coffee? But if you’re working with universal energy, you have access to all that is and can actually be limitless. One of the major lessons of Tai Chi though is that you can’t work with universal energy if you’re already full of your own. If your cup is already full of what you think you are, then how will the energy of the universe be able to get in? Hence, the concept of emptying oneself: Going into Nothing.

The reason why it’s important to go into nothingness is because if you don’t find some way to be in stillness, you’re doomed to your own momentum tunnel.

This is a familiar concept if you’re a Four Winds student.  If you’re not, think of it this way: there is a momentum pushing you forward in life. It consists of all of your previous actions, thoughts, and beliefs. It has created the environment of your home and work as well as the people you know and where you live. It’s the sum total of your past. And it has a momentum. If you don’t believe me, just think of the things that you have to do tomorrow or next week because of the momentum that your life has already set up.

So if you’re going to be able to change anything about your life, if you’re going to embrace being the creator of your life, you have to regularly step off your own momentum tunnel. If you don’t, then you’re just going to get more of what you’ve always gotten.

The only way to do this is to bring yourself to a still point. Only then will you truly have the freedom to create. Otherwise, if you try to create while you’re still being pushed by your momentum, you’re going to get mixed results.

So the bottom line is that you have to find a way to quiet your mind and find stillness. Here’s a link to a quick guided meditation that I created to do just that:

Then only once you’ve accessed stillness, emptiness, the void (whatever you want to call it), you’re now able to make a conscious choice.

3) Choosing with Power

We make choices all day long. But how many of them are made with true power? How many of them are made “off the momentum tunnel”?

But what are you going to choose? And how do you know that you’re really making the right choice of your highest path?

You have to listen.

Most of the time, our choices are based on what we want. They are our desires and dreams.

That’s great, but that’s not a real vision.

Tom Brown, Jr., the wilderness guru, says that a dream is what you want. A vision, on the other hand, is what the Creator wants for you.

So how can you drop your dreams and step up to a true vision for your life, a vision that is aligned with Spirit?

When we are able to align ourselves with the greater flow that is meant to be our highest life, then we can open ourselves up to the choices that are fully supported by the Universe. It stops being about a pushing, and becomes more of an allowing.  Then while being fully present, you can ask yourself the following question:

What does this moment call for?

Does it call for you to spend some time with yourself? Does it call for you to phone a certain friend or colleague? Does it require you to attend some kind of event next week? Do you need to write? Do you need to go to the gym or take a walk? What does the moment really call for?

Open up to whatever it is. Have the courage to meet Spirit halfway by taking the action that is being called.

That’s all you have to do.

It doesn’t have to be hard or complicated. Yet, we tend to make life very hard and complicated. So how can you get enough out of your own way to simply make the choices that are there to be made?

When you surrender enough to the moment, then there’s not all this pressure and stress. It’s just a knowing that you’re not alone. You trust that you’re being guided and have so much support. Yet, life still happens. There are challenges to face to continue to learn lessons. But when you surrender to the greater vision, you can relax knowing that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Allow that freedom to permeate your being by trusting in All That Is.

Here’s the question I asked earlier:

How can you restore the power that you’re supposed to have to create whatever you’d like for yourself and your life?

1) Realize that You are the Creator

2) Access stillness

3) Choose powerfully WITH the support of the Universe

It’s been said recently that with the current energies occurring on the planet right now, that your decisions in this next month will have repercussions for the next thirty years.

So what is it going to be?

What’s the vision that you’re creating?

What I actually do:
I help people who are ready to set the world on fire with their expanded visions.  I love helping those who want to create their grandest vision in their own way by their own rules.
As a life and business coach, I support them to take the practical steps to move forward.
As a soul coach or shamanic practitioner, I help them to release the energy of the past so that they are more free to go in a new direction.
As a brand and image coach, I guide them to create a brand identity that’s rooted in their truth.
My work consists of a blend of these three areas to help others step into their highest selves and onto their higher path.
If you’re ready to set the world on fire with your expanded vision, then how can I be of service to you?  Since you’re signed up for this newsletter, you’d get $50 off an initial consultation.  Get in touch with me if you’d like to explore how I can help you to create and follow through with your highest vision.
