Sometimes it feels like we’re so far away from where we’d like to be that we feel overwhelmed. It can feel as though its impossible. Especially when there’s a combination of things, such as illness, debt, depression, relationship challenge, loss of a loved one, and even more. Some people seem to have all of them at once.
In those times of overwhelm, when it seems like anything and everything is working against you, that is a time of great opportunity. I cannot emphasize this enough: If you’re willing, in the time of greatest challenge, Spirit can move a mountain if you ALLOW it. You DO have to be a very willing participant, but you, yourself, do not have to move the mountain. However, without your allowing and calling it forth, the mountain will not be moved. And this is where I’ve seen people transform their lives.
I used to feel stuck and overwhelmed by how I felt about my life and my self. I didn’t see how I could ever make the changes that I wanted made. It felt like too big a mountain to me.
At that time, I was daily struck down by my failures and seeming incompetencies. I was surviving, but that wasn’t enough for me, I wanted more and I couldn’t figure out how to unlock the door.
True spiritual growth felt so elusive to me.
I felt discouraged.
It felt so hard.
That’s when I learned the amazing power of a true desire to know Spirit. I decided to put ALL of my focus and attention in my life on looking for the opportunities to be loving and kind to myself and others. I decided to find the way to God through being aligned with Spirit through the activity of being loving and BECOMING willing to let go of my unloving thoughts.
I became vigilant for becoming willing by being willing to be willing to be willing. It really worked for me.
I became willing to GIVE to the Higher Holy Spirit Self everything that didn’t serve me. I didn’t know how to take out the trash in my mind, but I did learn how to give it away.
The miracle is, what doesn’t serve us, that we’re willing to let go of, Spirit will take from us. Spirit WILL do the heavy lifting. And that makes it so much easier.
Instead of trying to figure out how to move the mountain, ask Spirit and then ALLOW it to be done.
Focus on your willingness to let the past go.
Focus on your willingness to look for and make the loving choices.
God can move the mountain, but only if we’re willing. Only if YOU are willing will it work.
Quit complaining, criticizing and manipulating.
Look for opportunities to demonstrate your willingness to let it go.
And it’s so much easier than trying to figure out how to let it go.
Focus on the willingness and Spirit will do the heavy lifting.
If you feel that you’ve been playing small in any way, I’d love to support you in breaking free of that. If you’re feeling called to do this work with me, please trust that and allow Spirit to provide what is needed so that you can answer the call you’re feeling. We can do this together!
Changing our lives and healing our minds is so much easier when we are the two or more gathered together for the same purpose. To this end, I’m offering another Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive in May and my Stop Playing Small retreat right before, at the end of April. We practice and learn Self-Love in Spiritual Community and it’s a powerful healing experience. It’s a living, loving, beautiful expression of Spirit’s Love.
We are an expanding global spiritual community of prayerful people willing to be co-workers with God. We’re waking up together and finding freedom in our hearts. I’m so grateful for this!
