Every so often, you wake up and you know that there is more to you than meets the eye. You know that you have a message within you that needs to come out.
And most of the time, you dampen it down.
You tell yourself that you are being egotistical.
You try to blend right in and do what you have always done in order to just get by.
Because there is a part of you that thinks that this is all you can get.
And don’t get me wrong, you have a lot.
To most people, you are pretty darned successful but inside of you, you know that there is so much more to you but you don’t think you can let it out. You have to be responsible, you have to keep up appearances, you have to blend in because you HAVE to be accepted by those who ‘love’ you.
And deeper even than this is the thought that it is somehow wrong to want so much.
Because you are a spiritual person, some might even call you religious though you resent that term. What you are is intimate with the Universe, with God and there is a part of you that cannot shake the feeling that you are in some way not allowed to create wealth while serving people with your message.
And so, because of that underlying LIE (I am going to just be blunt with you!), you settle for half a life.
And the thing is, you know there is something wrong with this picture, you feel it inside but this is all you know, this is all you see others you admire doing and so you settle.
And the thing is, you think you know.
You think you know it all or should I say, you pretend to know it all.
Except all that knowledge does nothing but make you rigid and fixed in place, unable to live the life you are designed to live because you are overwhelmed by the weight of your vision. When you take a moment to glimpse at it, it feels too big for little old you so it is easy to tell yourself that you are being egotistical and there are an abundance of people ready and waiting to shoot you down ‘for your own good’.
And you listen to them because you do not believe yet.
You think you know but you really don’t.
What you know, is now a prison for you that you refuse to escape from. Outside the prison cell, it all feels too scary and braod and overwhelming and uncertain and so you stay in the comfort of what is known and you can even quote bible verses or some other spiritual text to back you up.
And I say… ‘Really?!!’
I am incredulous that you would settle for so little when you could be, do, have so much.
And yet, I understand. I so completely understand because I too did this for so long. I told myself I was being practical, I told myself this was the way it had to be. I had to maybe, if I was very lucky, live out my dreams on the evening and the weekend. I had to do what I was called to do only when someone else told me it was alright.
I had to be small and drown out my dreams, my vision, my message, my calling.
Because that was never, EVER to be used to create wealth.
It seemed impossible to think that I could actually have all of my life feeling good. Oh NO! there had to be a separation between my practical ‘go to work that I hate and make money’ life and my spiritual ‘serve the world’.
I shouted about being blessed to be a blessing which really meant again that I would go to work that i did not enjoy, make some money and then use it to fund my more passion driven stuff.
All I kept reinforcing was the fact that I felt it was wrong to create wealth doing what I was designed to do.
Now, I see it all for what it was and I realise I gave into the nonsense that others had fed me and the nonsense I had just picked up from my environment and Also, I was just plain old fearful!
I could always have woken up and chosen to refuse to live any other way than the way I felt called to live. Instead of ignoring the pleas of my soul and spirit, I could have just decided to make it so.
I have always been a powerful person that generally tended to get whatever I set my mind to.
Why did I not set my mind to this? To the most important thing I could ever do with my life? What was I waiting for?
I know now I was afraid it would not work.
I know now that i wanted someone to give me permission.
I know now that I wanted to be liked for the person I pretended to be instead of just being the person I am.
And even now, I have to continuously pull myself up or should I say, I have coaches in place who pull me up and refuse to allow me go back to being bland and boring. It is an ongoing battle to be all I am created to be…
And I am now calling you to that battle.
Because the world needs you.
Our children need you.
The planet needs people like you to come alive.
You are a unique part of the jigsaw puzzle and while you do not play your true part, while you try to blend your edges in, you leave a hole in the puzzle that can never be filled.
I get it – It is scary to face down things you have believed forever to be true.
It is not true that God and Money do not go together. You have done the very thing you think you are not doing. You have made money seem so important when really it is not. It is just an exchange of value and you can have as much of it as you like while doing what you are created to do.
Yes, it will take some time to build up your business, your vision but it took time to build up that career, didn’t it so why do you think this will be any different. However, the longer you spend not doing what you are called to do, the longer it takes to start living the life you were designed to live.
One of fulfilment, wealth and purpose.
Stop separating everything because you think you know all there is to know!
The wiser you become, the more you realise how little you really do know.
Set yourself free from old beliefs that do not empower you.
Allow yourself to be the powerful person you were created to be.
Step up, warrior and fight for yourself.
Fight for your children.
Fight for this world we live in. We may not be of it, we may only be passing through but we can make it better while we are here, right?
Stop judging yourself and finding yourself wanting.
Stop judging the message you carry within.
Let it out!
We live in an age of such opportunity to build an audience and spread your message – Please use it.
PLEASE USE IT!
It is time to fight for, to create the life, the business you want.
It is time to start living life DELIBERATELY!
