Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to participate in a full-day retreat with Jack Canfield, the acclaimed author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. His manuscript was rejected 144 times before he found a publisher. Now, he’s sold nearly 600 million books around the globe. As he spoke, he used phrases like “law of attraction” and “quantum field.” He guided the group of us through a powerful meditation and visualization exercise. He was speaking my language. I receive my most powerful inspiration, intuition and breakthroughs when I’m steeped in stillness. Yesterday was no different. Jack guided me through a journey to a pivotal moment in my childhood: my first memory of fear. I came to realize that, as much as I’ve found my voice in many ways, it’s not nearly enough. I still find myself shrinking at times. I don’t want to bother people with repeated phone calls or emails. I don’t want to constantly toot my own horn. I think, Who do I think I am? Then I really run the risk of forgetting.
I am uniquely gifted and divinely talented.
So are you.
We have superpowers, you and I.
I hosted a virtual “Passion and Purpose” workshop last week. During the event, we did an exercise where I asked the participants to write down five things they love to do. I offered my own five as an example: writing, teaching, yoga, hiking, running.
Teaching what I’ve learned is my passion. I realize when I have those moments of fear and self-doubt, I lose the power of my voice. Yesterday, during the conference, I posted my aha! moment on Instagram: “Be LOUD in pursuit of your PASSIONS.” I can’t just identify and pursue my passions. It’s not enough. I must also be LOUD if I want to make an impact.
What does more noise mean for me?
Finally starting my podcast,
Posting more videos,
Doing more live streams,
Sending more emails,
Making more phone calls.
Jack Canfield said, “The last five letters in the Law of Attraction are ACTION. We all want to be great, but we’re not willing to pay the price.”
You know what, I see you Universe, and I’m listening to all the lessons you’re sending my way.
So, what are YOU loudly pursuing?
Everybody wants money, but we have to offer something in return. Otherwise, it’s vapid and imbalanced.
Are you pursuing Education? Healing? Spirituality? Self-love? Purpose?
Whatever good work you pursue, make sure to open your heart and your throat, and BE LOUD.
I wish you Freedom, Alignment and Effortless Abundance!
