We've reached the end of this adventure. It has been wonderful to share it with you – whether you wrote to the prompts on your own, shared in the Facebook Group or showed up on the live writing circles.
This event is intentionally designed to make it easy for you to play your way. I trust you feel more open, more connected to your deepest longings and your inner guidance and that you are ready to share more of your greatest bits with the world.
Here's what I've discovered on making dreams come true: You can do it! It's easy to get sidetracked on doubt and confusion. When that happens just know it's a call to reconnect to the juice that fuels your vision. It takes tremendous trust to pull something from your dreams and make it real, especially when it may not yet have materialized. There's no damn proof! Ha!!
This is where your visioning creative nature is essential. Hold fast to your dreams, darlings! You wouldn't have them if they weren't yours to bring into being.
Life pulsates in THIS moment.
It doesn't matter what has happened before, or even who YOU were before. All that's essential exists in the present. I'll repeat that. All that's essential exists in the present.
All it takes is an infinitesimal shift in how you feel and sense and a new trajectory of experience becomes possible. Chances are that it will be an unfamiliar pathway. It is in the very nature of it’s ‘newness’ that the gift lies.
The new in your outer experience elicits the new from your inner world. A new you is inevitable if you willingly engage the present moment.
In today's writing explore the mystery of YOUR magic. Pixie dust is real, loves! Spread it all around.
Unleash the Magic!
Welcome to Day 20 of our 21-Day Adventure!
Joy . . . sounds of joy to the world (the hymn AND the Three Dog Night song) ring through my head, opening my heart and lifting my spirits. Just the word does things to me. It's like happiness to the 100th power. My body feels infused with light, so much so that I radiate like a STAR, darling! Yes!
I wasn't always familiar with the feel and sensation of joy in my body. My story includes lots of doggie downers (if I insist on wearing those tattered clothes). It might even be that I relish joy SO much because it's been hard won.
Whatever your story or relationship to this high frequency vibe, I guarantee if you surrender to your ability to experience joy everything will change. Nothing will shift your world faster than feeling good. Ever seen a sad flower? That's right! When you're FULL of Life, you're full of joy!
You know how you feel when you laugh? Isn't it awesome? Your body is light, your spirit is free. There are numerous studies that show laughter helps people live longer, happier lives, be more creative and productive, and have more energy with less physical discomfort. Norman Cousin's groundbreaking book, Anatomy of an Illness, gave an in depth account of how he healed a spinal condition through the use of laughter. Study after study report the same thing: laughter IS the best medicine!
So . . . imagine how high you'll fly when you allow joy to flow unrestricted in your world.
If you're unaccustomed to feeling joy just know that feeling good is a habit. You can acquire the taste for feeling good! It opens doorways to endless possibilities.
Joy is at the core of your being. It's the delight of Life moving through you, as you, in time and space. Joy, my darlings, is FUEL for LIVING!
In today's writing follow the pathway of joy in your life. Tap into your earliest remembrance and notice the last time you surrendered to it completely.
Some might think it prideful, even arrogance, to think in terms of legend. I think Freddie Mercury hit it right on the head. Most of us probably shoot too low, rather than too high.
Why not? Why shouldn't you leave a lasting, legendary legacy? Not out of hubris, but out of love, excitement, joy! Because it saturates your cells, it flows from your very being abundantly. You can't help but share what you have SO much of.
What if you gave your VERY best! What if you reached for the most within you and gave Life your ALL? What if – at the end of the game – you didn't leave one drop unsavored?
I'm not saying to go for the ego crown. I'm inviting you to unleash the genius of your gifts and talents. I'm urging you to share your best self, your awesome creations. I'm saying that this adventure is precious and you are too. Leave something that others can build on. Leave something that lifts. Leave something that shows your infinite love and that you came to play all the way.
This exploration brings to mind the countless times I've heard (or it's been implied)… WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? That was supposed to make you tow the line, realize you were too far-reaching. I got this a lot as a woman at work, at home. It's one of the reasons I didn't have many friends growing up. It felt safer, better to be a loner than in a world that totally misunderstood me.
I held fast to what I felt within and knew that I was something more than everyone around me was willing to see. Now, mind you, I was an excellent student so folks thought I was smart. Later on, people found me attractive. And still … there was something in me that said, “You're SO much more, darling!”I AM. And so are YOU! We're LIGHT shaped into LIFE's infinite expressions, so much more to adore and explore.
In today's writing, explore what being a legend means to you. Consider that your excellence is the ultimate in legacy creation.
Let's light up this planet!
