I finally gave up the excuses.

One of the most painful times in my life was when I was holding myself back from following my passion.  Of course, my passion is for Spirit, God, Love, Spirituality, teachings of truth.  For me, it’s like a great love affair with Spirit.  And for so long I held myself back because I didn’t feel worthy, or capable.

It was really awful for me to not allow myself to fully answer the call that I felt pulling me to do what I’m doing now.  I didn’t really understand it at the time.

Today, I can see clearly that I used so many excuses to stop me from doing what I love.

I had excuses such as:

“People will know I’m really not that spiritual.  I’m a fake.”

“I don’t know about marketing, so I can’t do this.”

“It takes a lot of money to launch a career as a spiritual teacher and I’m broke, just barely making ends meet.”

I feel like I worked SO HARD for many years trying to MAKE IT HAPPEN when I could have relaxed into Spirit leading me and guiding.  I believed it was hard, so I made it hard.

I’m so grateful that I can see now that all of that experience was to be beneficial.  Now, Spirit is leading me and guiding me to create programs and classes that support people who feel like I did to develop the willingness to let go of the blocks to Love in order to simply be of service and follow their passion to make a difference.

I meet people who are just as passionate as I am and who believe that it seems so hard, and I am witness to them letting those beliefs go so they can get their personality out of the way of fulfilling Spirit’s calling for them.  

Let’s be real about this:  

Spirit cannot fail.  

If we put Spirit in charge, there won’t be a failure.

If we think we have to make it happen (like I did) we’re already failing.

Whatever your calling is – whether it’s making mosaic tile tables, producing television shows, or helping people find the perfect home for their family, Spirit is inviting us to give up the resistance and put Spirit in charge so that we can shine the Light of the world that we already are.

I made it so complicated with my excuses because I couldn’t imagine myself being truly successful, I could only fantasize about it, and that’s a different thing.

I find it deeply fulfilling to support folks in following their passion for sharing and teaching what they’ve learned. That’s MY passion too. In June, when my dear friend, Karen Russo, author, speaker, teacher, minister, was visiting me, Spirit gave me the great idea to ask if she’d teach a class in how to lead and create a workshop so more people will feel confident and qualified to share their passion, and she said yes!

I’ve added in some great bonuses to inspire you to be willing to say yes and follow your calling.
