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.
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.
Set the stage for your creative work. Send you roots deep into the earth that supports all living things. Breathe in her nourishment, let earth energy fill your body. Let go of worry, doubt, expectations.
