I was interviewed by my dear friend Allana Pratt today for her sexy moms series and we had the most delicious conversation about playing a bigger game in your life, despite the challenges of the everyday.
While I was the one being interviewed, it was just what I needed!
So often, when we find ourselves sharing our advice with someone else, it turns out to be exactly what we need to hear ourselves.
Today, it was about how not to get sucked into the common thinking of lack, limitation and scarcity.
To some degree, lack, limitation and scarcity is my baseline, passed on to me by my genetic code. So, it’s a constant internal battle to keep my small mind at bay and stay focused on the higher truth I know is reality.
Especially when the more I shine my light, the more people show up in my life who seem to believe they are entitled to a share of what I’ve been building.
As my energy rises, I’m aware of the people who are showing up, specifically it seems, to pull that energy down.
If I allow it, I could easily be sucked into the common thinking that tells me I’m being taken advantage of, ripped off, walked all over or that I should battle to the end for what is rightfully mine.
But, that’s not who I am. I am love. And so long as I can stay in the awareness of that, I can continue to shine brightly undulled by the clouds of negativity.
So, how do I do it?
I read. I listen. I go within.
Here are some of my favorite resources for staying immersed in the awareness of what’s real even when (especially when) I’m dealing with major challenges that make my mind/ego want to fight for its life:
And I set up a column in Tweetdeck for people who inspire me, uplift me and make me smile with their joyousness (like @barefoot_exec, @unmarketing, @perrybelcher, @marismith, @feelgoodguru, @lotusamy and @mediastarr and the folks who post their morning gratitude at #amgrat, celebrate their manifestations each evening at #pmceleb, express their gratitude all day long at #gratx and spread the love at #loverage) and anytime I’m feeling low energy during the day, I can look to that column for a little pick me up.
And, I get quiet.
When I find myself feeling put upon, taken advantage of, overburdened or overwhelmed, I walk away. I read something True or put on my headphones and listen to a recording. Then, I sit quietly. And I wait for the awareness of the Truth to permeate my soul and once again radiate through me.
