Why Visioning Doesn’t Work

I’ve been feeling a tug to start my own party.

Several years ago I had a talk with my future-self and asked, looking back, who I was. What came through were the words, “Books on Film” to the 80s tune, Girls on Film. Yes, I’m dating myself…When I asked myself what that meant, the response was, “books, events, films.” I knew in that moment, somewhere down the road, this was my bigger purpose.

For the past few years I’ve wanted to step into greater leadership and move beyond my own teaching into creating something much bigger than myself as a solo-mompreneur. I’ve been feeling an inner urging to move beyond telling my own story, and help others tell theirs.

In January of this year I kept hearing my internal voice saying, “it’s time to start your own party.” This isn’t about a political party – let’s get that clear. This is about publishing, event management and film projects that create a win/win/win. Over the summer I took a break to just be and consider the inspiration that moved through me. During this quiet time I became more clear on what’s next and and how to structure it.

What culminated during my introspection is the next big thing in greater service to all of you.

My kids went back to school a few days ago and it’s now time to get back to work. As I sat a few mornings ago during my quiet “me” time, before the rest of the house awoke, this is the message that came through:

“Take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and get things done.

It is less about being done as it is about swift, decisive, inspired action. Decide – cut off. You are the decision maker and you control time by the choices you make. No active decisions and time slips by. Acting without specific intent and you find yourself wondering where the time went.

You are the Universe manifested as you.

attraction_is_actionAll of it is at your command. You are the wizard and the sorceress. You decide and the universe complies. It is that simple.

Set your decision into motion and all the working parts come together. This is the case in all things. Those who decide, succeed. They don’t doubt. They believe and do. That is what faith is. A person’s morality has nothing to do with it.

Stop overthinking the process and just do it. Start in the direction and the universe complies. It isn’t about the amount of action you take but your active moving in the direction of your desire. The Universe meets you at your point of action and provides additional opportunities for you to act upon. It’s always your choice whether to act upon inspiration and opportunity. The Universe supplies – it’s up to you to see and to act.

Organize, have a plan, and visualize the outcome. While visioning is vitally important, vision without action is futile. The universe can only comply to the degree of action you are willing to take. Your action sets it all into motion and solidifies your intent.

Action without vision is mindless doing. Vision without action is wishful thinking.

Now is the time to move into action and show the world, and yourself, the greatness that has always been within you. Take the bull by the horns and run with it. Now is the time for the ride of your life.

So be it.”

This was a message I really needed to hear. I’ve spent way too much time in my life visioning the outcome and hoping that it will all just fall together like magic. But the magic doesn’t happen without action. It requires my action and the actions of others. Without action, there is no movement and ideas become stale.

As I’ve said before, half of the word “attraction” is action. I can’t help but wonder how many of people look at the Law of Attraction and apply wishful thinking, then wonder why the thing they desire doesn’t manifest. If you want to make your dreams come true, you can’t wait around for someone else to act for you. You are the only one who sets your dream into motion.

Belief combined with action creates reality – in other words, faith without works is dead. 

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!

Afraid of the Unknown?

This morning as I sat working on my intentions for 2017, along with catching up on a very long “To Do” list after spending close to three weeks playing with my husband and kids, I sat and pondered why it is that moving into the unknown feels so difficult for so many.

Yes, this past year was very difficult for many people as our planet went through a huge energetic shift. That in itself could be a blog post but for now I won’t get too woo-woo on you. Many of us, including myself, lost loved-ones and as a whole we lost individuals that touched our hearts over the years at it seemed that a steam-roller took out celebrities and artists we admired. And, for many, it seemed that we lost our direction as a country when money bought out politics on all sides. The chaos and loss of this past year has many people afraid of the unknown and what the future will be. I’ve heard this concern from clients and friends alike. Sitting and pondering on this as I prepared myself to become immersed in a new year of focus, this is the message that came through.

“My Dear Sweet Children, it isn’t the unknown that you are afraid of. It is what your mind has predetermined the unknown might bring you that you are afraid of. Fear of the unknown keeps your mind preoccupied with chaos and limitation, blocking your ability to recognize your own greatness and the role you play in creating the most vibrant future for yourself and those around you. When your focus is on that which you fear, that is what you create because that is all that you can see.move mountains

It is far better to open your mind to limitless possibles and focus on what you want the future to be. Move toward that which you desire in the direction of accomplishment, rather than allowing yourselves to be paralyzed by fear or attempt to run away from the illusions you have created in your mind. They are simply that, illusions, and when enough of you focus on the illusion of fear, that is what you co-create.

You are always inter-creating and it is up to each of you to focus on what you want rather than what you fear. When enough of you focus on what you want and work toward that, that is what you will create. This is why it is so vital that those of you who are focused on creating a new reality based in love come together in oneness. Yes, one person can make a difference and together you become a force for good that forges valleys and moves mountains.”

In short, individually as well as collectively, we get what we focus on. Yes, this is the Law of Attraction in action, but it’s more than that, it’s common sense. Simply put, you cannot arrive at a destination if your focus is in another direction. That holds true for ourselves, our country and the planet as a whole. We are the creators of our reality, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for and we are the ones who will save us from ourselves. It isn’t a “me” thing, it’s a “we” thing.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!
