The First Helpful Spirit: Invitation

The First Helpful Spirit: Invitation

With the spirit of Invitation, you invite your Dream to come to you, to be realized in your life.

You invite support, resources, guidance, people, openings to appear as you need them. You open to receive.

You cultivate the spirit of invitation by becoming inviting and welcoming to the Dream and to Life. You consciously welcome it in, instead of unconsciously holding it at bay with your doubts, fears and false beliefs (These will be there, but you keep cultivating and choosing to be invitational to the Dream). You make a soft spot for your Dream to land in your life.

You allow the path to show you the way and you allow it to be as easeful as it can, not needing to make it hard to prove your false beliefs are true. You don’t fight with the Dream nor fight your way to the Dream. You don’t idolize suffering and hard work. But you also don’t abandon the Dream, expecting Life to do all the work. You stay committed, open and inviting, connected, receptive, welcoming, excited to see it manifest and committed to staying in action toward the Dream, doing your part.

Imagine holding a party for your Dream and inviting it to show up. Imagine inviting all the beings and things you also need for the Dream to show up too. Allow yourself to be in partnership with Life in co-creating your Dreams.

How could you be more invitational to that which you desire now? Write me and tell me your thoughts. I’d love to hear what opens up for you in cultivating the spirit of Invitation.

The 5 Helpful Spirits

The 5 Helpful Spirits

I’m going to share with you something I haven’t shared before, the Five Helpful Spirits that I have identified really help you to co-create your life dreams with greater ease and grace and fun. I think of them as magical spirits, but you  might also call them qualities, attitudes, approaches.

Here’s the thing: If you really long for something in your heart, if your spirit feels called to something, then there are going to be challenges on the path to actually having/being/living that Dream. It’s a hero’s or heroine’s journey. So, it’s wise to have some helpful spirits accompany you. Aren’t there always helpers that show up in any good fairytale or hero’s quest?

I’m going to share the spirits with you one at a time in my upcoming emails. We’ll start with the first spirit, the spirit of Invitation. See my next post to begin meeting the Helpful Spirits. . .

Summer of Love

Summer of Love

As far as I’m concerned, every summer can be a summer of love. Love is what we are, and in essence, what all things are. When we tap that place of love within us, that deep wisdom of the heart, that all-knowingness, life flows with so much more grace and ease, miracles occur frequently, gratitude wells up, and we have the feeling of being in the flow.

But, we often need reminders to bring us back to that innate being, knowing, bliss that we are. Friends, helpful practices, teachers, sources of inspiration, helpers on the way can all be profoundly useful in coming back to the love we are. We need these reminders because contemporary life is so often bombarding us with false messages of lack, fear, not enough, worry and woe.

Every moment we have a choice. The more we choose love and the deep knowing within, the more we practice living from our hearts, the stronger those “muscles” get, so that becomes our habitual way of being.

What reminders do you have in your life that help you return again and again to that truth, that essence? What keeps you aligned with what you love, what matters to you? What helps you believe in the beauty of your dreams?

You might want to make a list and post that list somewhere where you see it often. What brings you joy? What connects you to your heart, your truth? Who or what brings you back to love?

Then, how can you be sure to have one or more of those things in this day and every day?

If you’re tempted to say, but I have no time! Ask yourself, what is really more important than this?

Share with me below some of the things that bring you back into connection with your heart, your joy, your essence.

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun”
Pablo Picasso

“In the world of the dreamer there was solitude: all the exaltations and joys came in the moment of preparation for living. They took place in solitude. But with action came anxiety, and the sense of insuperable effort made to match the dream, and with it came weariness, discouragement, and the flight into solitude again. And then in solitude, in the opium den of remembrance, the possibility of pleasure again.”
Anaïs Nin
