Years ago, when I first had the inspiration and ignited a desire to do this series of classes I started this week, I told a number of my friends and associates what I was inspired to do. When I first discussed it a number of people told me “you can’t name a spiritual program with a negative title. That will turn people OFF!”
I didn’t make the title up.
Spirit gave it to me – why wouldn’t I be willing to follow the inspiration when every day I’m praying to be more inspired and to clearly tune in and tune UP?
What I knew from my own experience is that so many of us have taken years of positively themed classes and especially self-improvement programs (often built on a foundation of thinking that there’s something wrong with us that needs to be improved), and we have taken so many of them and none of them changed our lives.
Taking a class doesn’t change anything and neither does reading a book.
It’s being inspired to be motivated to do the spiritual practice that builds momentum that makes the difference.
Quite frankly, many of us don’t feel pulled by a vision of an inspired life – that’s not what motivates us. Inspiration actually often does NOT lead to motivation.
For many of us, myself included, we go through DECADES of being motivated by pain and suffering. The pain pushes us to finally say ENOUGH!!!!!!! I’m SO DONE!
Then, at that point, we’re willing to STOP PLAYING SMALL.
If I had listened to my brilliant and well meaning friends and advisors they would have convinced me to call the summit: Shining Your Light Summit or something like that. When so many of us are actually AFRAID to shine our light, we wouldn’t even be drawn to that. I took so many of those and I just felt even more like a failure!
Sometimes ending the pain is what calls us more than the vision.
That was true for me for a very long time and so now I am so glad that we’re joining together to Stop Playing Small and cultivate a willingness to be inspired enough to be motivated to build some momentum to have a breakthrough.
It’s always darkest before the dawn is a fact and it’s often as true in our minds as it is in the daily progression of night to day.
The very biggest breakthrough is just on the other side of the most challenging moments.
If it feels super uncomfortable for you now, your Higher Holy Spirit Self is building enough tension for you to finally decide to stop playing small.
Some people create tension to get enough willingness to decide to be willing to shift.
Don’t give up before the miracle – be wiling to BE the miracle that you are and it WILL COME because it already IS who you are! You have to be willing to BE it to SEE it!
