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.
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!
