Are You Fully Saying YES!!
“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” - Helen Keller
I know many are setting intentions for 2016 right now.
But are you fully saying YES when the manifestation shows up? What if it shows up differently than you envisioned? What if it shows up much sooner than you'd thought it would? Will you recognize it? Will you fully be able to be that person to fully step into it, even though it showed up sooner and alot differently than you thought it would?
I recently had this happen...in a big way that asked me to step through some "discomfort" of sorts. Could I truly trust that it was "OK" to do this, to accept the manifestation?
As many of you know, I've been wanting to write my e-course "Treasure Your TaTas" on Breast Health for much of 2015. Firstly it turned out to be much bigger than I'd originally thought! It is now 9 modules!! I'm so excited! All good, right? But life is busy. I have amazing clients, I have a large home to care for, I love cooking healthy meals, I have a wonderful partner in my life who I adore spending time with, 2 Jack Russell Fur Babies who love their walks, I swim several times a week, and have been healing a frozen shoulder and working on a few other healing issues. A full and beautiful life, right? But somehow, writing is always left till last and just didn't get done. (A part of this also has to do with Stepping Deeper into My Truth....more on THAT below!)
So, not long ago I set an intention I would have more time to write in 2016. I would make enough in my business to hire help with cooking, cleaning, filing etc. Ya....that's what would happen!
But then an opportunity came up that would easily allow my partner and I to travel to Mexico for 2 weeks, and I was thrilled! Time to write each day I thought!! And heal my shoulder, and so much more. I was excited!
BUT THEN...an even bigger opportunity/adventure came up that could easily be added on to the first trip...we were asked to help sail a boat from Puerto Rico to Panama!! Wow!! Exciting!! More adventure with my Love, More time to write.....But......doubt started creeping in..."I couldn't be away from my (house) (clients) (business) (dogs) that long.", "What about my finances?", etc, etc, etc. You know what I'm talking about! How many times do we immediately step into the FEAR rather than the EXCITEMENT! And in doing so shut down that abundant flow from the Universe.
At first I didn't realize this opportunity was actually my intention manifesting!! It was so much bigger and better than I'd planned or imagined (The Universe kind of likes doing that! Just to give you an opportunity to uplevel!) I had to do a bit of growth to step into accepting it.
I will be writing more about all of this on my Blog on my new website, so make sure to watch for it! And stay tuned to follow this adventure!
Another part to this manifestation was the mandala I created to help manifest sailing and a sailboat! Did I mention the boat we are going to be sailing on is one that is on our shortlist of ideal boats? Hello sign from the Universe! Yup there is going to have to be a blog written to share that amazing-ness with you! In the meanwhile you can read a bit about it here.
I can tell you though, that AS SOON AS I SAID YES, lots of great stuff happened to support this decision!!
So where can YOU say YES!! more often in your life in 2016? And what kind of Magic might it lead to? How beautiful and different might life look in 2016 and beyond? Kind of fun to think about isn't it!?
