Too many ideas?

Does your brain fizz with an outpouring of ideas and inspirations? Are there too many to capture and latch onto and sort out, and bring to life?

You can ask the universe for the clarity, focus, and stamina to manage your many blessings and creative inspirations wisely and well!

Too many creative projects swirling around in your brain at once and you are bursting at the seams, overwhelmed with the cacophony of competing ideas -unable to move forward with any of them.

If you can focus on just one or two and go deep, you can give your project the attention and focus and follow through needed to make it successful and satisfy your soul.

Perhaps you can imagine a storage cabinet of a style and material that pleases you with many drawers shelves and slots. Imagine yourself choosing one idea or plan that lights you up. Then imagine filing the other plans in your cabinet for later, then shutting the doors or drawers so only your chosen plan is visible. Now see yourself giving your full unbroken attention to your chosen project and carrying it through to completion.

Feel the feelings of that!

The river of ideas and inspirations is a form of blessing from the divine, letting you know that you are tuned in to the inexhaustible flow of creative power that moves life forward. Your challenge is to choose one or two projects at a time that light you up with inspiration and bring them to completion.

Being and Doing

Dear ones, do you find a balance in life between being and doing? Too much of one, not enough of the other and you are out of balance, off kilter, not as effective as you might be.

To be is to sit quietly, to allow life to flow through you without resistance, to attract through your energy field, to set intentions- the internal agenda, to align with source, to be mindful of your body, to draw that which you desire to your precious self.

To do is to take physical action, to reach out into the world with confidence, to make your inspirations manifest in the world, to breath life into your ideas, using the tools and techniques and materials that best suit you.

Are you full of inspiration and creative ideas, yet unable to follow through and carry them out? Or, do you exert yourself and labor all day long without any knowledge of what is happening inside you? Are you out in the world putting plans into action, yet not knowing how to sit still at times and enjoy the beauty within and around you?

Are you mostly a be-er or a doer? Notice your inclinations and try to create a balance between action and introspection, between the outer world of activity and achievement, and your inner landscape of inspiration, allowing, and creative visions.

Tree-like focus

Dear ones, do you wish to be effective in life, to get things done, to feel the soul satisfaction that comes with accomplishment?

If so, then try this on for size… You can do so much when you remain fully in your body, fully in the here and now, fully focused and engaged. If your mind wanders, if you try to “multitask”, your effectiveness is greatly diminished, your energy divided, your results scattered.

You can’t be two places at once and expect to live fully!

GCW’s prescription: Do one thing at a time – Like a tree! Train yourself to root and anchor your energy down into the earth, to pull in the Earth energy for the stamina and groundedness you need.  When you have pulled in Earth energy, then reach up with your energetic “branches” to absorb the inspiration and clarity that will keep you excited about your project.

It is through single minded tree-like focus that you create great things!

Laughter

Even though you can’t see touch, smell, or taste it, laughter bubbles up through your body, cleansing and clearing your energy and leaving you refreshed.  It can reset your mood, and lighten your day, connect you to higher vibrations.

Find reasons to laugh each day. OK, you don’t need a reason!   Kids have never needed a reason!  (If you do need a reason, do it because it feels good!)

Happy kid!

Make laughter a daily practice to uplift your spirit and connect you to source, for contrary to majority opinion, source loves a good joke! 

The only rule, as always, is do not joke or laugh at the expense of another person or group of people.  Laugh to include, connect, and uplift not to exclude or put down.  Remember the golden rule…

Laughing kid

When you laugh often with fun in mind, you will find your heart and spirit lighter, your mood happier, and your thinking with greater clarity and creativity.  You connect directly to the heart of source when you laugh!

Tune up for inspiration

What inspires you?

Inspiration is the life’s breath of All-That-Is breathing through you.  It is a partnership of All-That-Is and you with your unique gifts, talents, skills, and interests.

Inspiration is like the fairy tale pot that would keep on boiling, producing a never ending supply of food.  Inspiration is food for your soul!

When you attune your energy to Source, you open a channel, a never ending supply of energy, ideas, opportunities, amazing coincidences that satisfy your soul  – When in partnership with Source, you create infinitely more than you could by yourself.

When you must use effort, striving, and force (so beloved in your culture) to get things done, this indicates that you have separated yourself from Source in some way.  This is a very human thing to do.

When you were born, you were one with Source.  Then you may have lost the connection while growing older and felt separate, disconnected.  Now that you are aware there is more to life than going it alone you can reunite your energy with All-That-Is and feel whole again.

Attune yourself to the frequency of All-That-Is. Like an orchestra tuning up, Source is the concert master. Bring your vibrational tone into harmony with Source and make exquisite music together!

 

Stand in your light

Are you ready to come out of the shadows, take a chance, and stand in your light?

It takes guts, stamina, courage, commitment, and willingness to be seen and heard. Are you willing to risk rejection from others who don’t understand?

When you stand in your light, you know that you are deeply rooted to the earth!  You know your full creative power, and your will, aligned with all that is. You feel the power and beauty of your expanded heart.  You speak with  a clear strong voice.  You trust your intuitive knowing.  You a maintain and nurture a strong connection to the divine.

If you own a human body, you have been given these gifts.

You can develop your gifts – expand them, embrace them and emerge into your full light and power – at your pace, in the timing that suits you.

These gifts, when acknowledged and nurtured will guide you to your highest good.  What is in your highest good is in the highest good of all that is! Strengthen yourself and you strengthen the web of all things!

Enjoy the journey!

Choose one idea

Are you filled with inspiration and ideas – bursting at the seams with fervor to create and bring your ideas from the energy of thought to physical reality?

When you find that ideas are flowing like the ocean tide and the spring thaw, you must choose and decide. You must narrow your focus to one or two ideas at a time. Otherwise you will make yourself crazy and accomplish exactly zero!

When your attention is scattered in all directions you cannot bring your ideas forth with any coherence.

When your attention is focused like a laser beam on one thing at a time; the one thing that rocks your world, satisfies your soul, floats your boat, makes your heart sing, you harness the creative power of the universe in one clear coherent signal. All the guidance you need is provided.

Dear idea person, Keep a list and file of all your amazing inspirations. When you are ready for a new adventure, when you’ve brought your current idea to fruition with focus, discipline and perseverance, you many choose again from your file and begin the process again.

Choose the idea that lifts you up, excites and satisfies you. Choose the idea that has been in your mind and heart for many years, the perennial favorite.

After choosing your amazing idea, give it your full attention. Let your creativity flow! Do what it takes and bless this earth with your passion, purpose and focus.

Your sweet spot

When you are energized, when you have no sense of time passing, when you are living in the moment, enthused, and inspired, you are centered in your sweet spot. Your physical body and spirit are aligned in harmony.

Do you spend most of your time in your sweet spot or do events, thoughts, and fears pull you off balance and out of true?

You work here is to do what needs to be done to line yourself up again and again with the amazing flow of energy, the inspiration, the delight and clarity of your sweet spot. This is where the things you care about get done! Effortlessly!

Can you catch yourself before you lean too far off center, before you get too far from your sweet spot? One way is to create a daily practice for yourself to keep yourself in balance.

Devise a ritual that helps you line up and place yourself fully in the center of your life, where your power lies, where you belong! You will be amazed!

Many humans are called at this time to step into their full power, to line up with their light and live fully in their sweet spot for the blessing of this earth. Will you?

Your sweet spot

You are meant to be a column of pure clear light. This is when life flows delightfully, without effort.

When your light is shaded and dimmed by fear, when you are pulled off center or out of true by foreign substances, worry for another, your reaction to events, you lose effectiveness, you spin your wheels, you may become careworn and haggard.

Put yourself back in the sweet spot of flow, back to your spotlight where your energy moves without impediment. Align yourself with the web of all things where endless possibilities exist.

Simply drop the idea that you can’t do this. That, my dear is a lie! You are strong, capable and powerful. Those qualities are within you.

Do not search for your power and strength outside of yourself, for you will continue searching from lifetime to lifetime in vain. Draw them from the core of your being, as a singer brings forth a clear pure tone from within.

Release your need to control. Know your inner power and strength. Ask for help.

Allow the amazing intelligence of all that is to make connections and create soul satisfying solutions for you.  Allow yourself to live in your sweet spot!

Try something new!

Dear ones, are you experiencing the full spectrum of life that is available to you – or do you find yourselves repeating the same tired, ineffective thoughts, words, and actions?

My beloved, you can expand your awareness and your repertoire of actions thoughts and behaviors beyond the borders of the known and move into the exciting realm beyond your comfort zone where the heart and soul of life unfold.

To do this, you must drop skepticism, doubt, and launch your boat into the stream. Life provides limitless possibilities to you, in this, your precious time on earth. 

Gather your courage. Gather your trust in source and expand your life one new thought, one new idea, one new action at a time. Try something new! See where that takes you! Try a new path this time, step forward in a new direction that calls you.

Like a rainbow, where the colors melt imperceptibly into each other, forming delightful new colors and qualities of light, so you can begin to bring in new thoughts that blend with the old, yet take you to a newer fresher place in your mind, heart and spirit.
