That is what I heard upon waking one morning after a day of not feeling well emotionally, settling into the physical. I told myself the same advice I offer others, "Just be; don't force a result, don't force a solution. Simply go with what you're feeling in the moment."
When I heard those words that morning, I got out of bed (at 5:30am!) and began to write in my journal. Then I caught up on a few meditations from the Chopra Center. They were spot on as to what I was experiencing physically and emotionally; plus they were exactly aligned with what I want to do in and with my life.
Prior to listening to the meditation that described the Chakras of the body (in yoga, the seven major energy centers), I decided to finally read Deepak Chopra's book, "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success," purchased a couple years ago. I took an hour out of my morning and was rewarded not only with steps to take next, but validation once again that I'm on the right path.
Then I proceeded to a community forum I am a member of, and someone was talking about the International Women's Day; another spoke about all the giving and receiving and milestones reached from within that wonderful group that someone else created just for us. My heart swelled even more with the knowledge and satisfaction, if you will, that I am where I'm supposed to be at this given moment. No more, no less.
What a difference a day makes. What a difference a moment can have. What a difference one group of people can make. But what's more, what difference ONE person can make and have on the world. My last post discussed how a negative person can give many gifts. It takes personal practice and often humility to reach such a milestone – seeing the positive in the bad – yet it can be attained.
I am where I am because of everything that occurred in my lifetime. I am where I am so that I can help others find themselves just like I did. I am where I am in being free to share my knowledge and expertise in overcoming adversity, negativity, loss, and more importantly, how to live happily the life of your dreams, the life you were meant and deserve to live.
In a few short weeks I’ll be discussing this more on a telesummit and then again a few days after that in my own hour-long teleseminar. I'll also be writing about this topic and many more in my upcoming ebook, "The Acceptance Factor," due out later this spring.
“Things are the way they are to give you freedom.”
Does this hold true for you, too? I’d love to hear, so please leave a comment or feel free to email or schedule personal time with me.
