Will you do me a favor and please try harder?! Try harder to do it all. To have a perfectly clean house. To ensure your kids are safe. To have a flawless complexion and beautifully manicured nails. To ensure your ass looks great in yoga pants. To be the loving partner written about in poems. To ensure that people like you. To be sure and be nice to everyone (don't want to offend anyone because it’s a small town and people will talk). Try super hard to judge yourself. Oh, and please compare yourself with every facebook friend who appears to have a fairytale life.
Can you do that for me? Can you try harder?
You know I didn’t even need to ask. Because as I look into my crystal ball, I see many of you already having the above items on your daily to-do list. If not in action they at least float in your thoughts. For the collective is attempting to live (and glorify) a busy life of stuff ~ and in the process barely managing to keep their heads above the snow.
Everyone is trying hard just to exist.
When we just exist, guess what often gets left behind?
Dharma. The true reason why you are here. I mean really here. Dharma is the cosmic purpose to your life. It is the truth behind the “I got it all together” disguise. It is the art of the real you showing up and taking names. And forgiving all the crap in between. It is your life on passionate sparkly fire.
So, I invite you again. I invite you to try harder.
Try harder to live a life aligned with your soul’s purpose. To use your gifts as the world needs your special star dust.
The purpose of art is to wash the dust of daily life off of our souls. ~ Pablo Picasso
And there is much to be dusted, for in our striving to merely exist, we have forgotten. We have forgotten the heart of our souls.
It is time to remember.
My dear in this moment ~ take a long soothing breath. Allow the standing hairs on your back to slowly return to a bed of comfort on your skin. Allow the nervous system to calm as the tiger runs back into the woods. And now, accept this is where you have been and now you get to choose.
Choose to shed the stuff.
The over used junk you have decorated your precious hOMe with.
So now drink in this. Your house is clean enough. Your children will fall and be bruised by life. That pretty face will have days of wrinkles and spots. The size of your ass will ebb and flow like the seasons of nature. At times, your partner will think you are a crazy lunatic. Your best friend is you. Small town ~ big town ~ size doesn’t matter. You will crumble, mess up, and rise to glorious heights ~ one not being greater than the next. And guess what? ~ High School is over and Facebook isn’t the friend barometer ~ lose the popularity contest.
Yes! It is time to be like a snake and exfoliate the old skin. The old way of living ~ any part of your life that does not have purpose.
It is time to shed and show up!!
So please do try harder to let go of the vise grip of control you have on your life. To give a little breathing room for Spirit to be of assistance and to allow the purpose of your soul to finally see the day of light ~ or should I say ~ see the top of your to-do list.
And now to shed the layers upon layers of snake skins. Where to begin? What will have the biggest affect? With so many layers of worry, guilt, shame, and judgment...what is ready to finally go? What will help the light for your soul to ignite?
That is where I’m honored to help.
Join me March 15-17, 2019 @ Xanadu Island Resort in Battle Lake, MN
The fire will be roaring and all that trying too hard ~ for the wrong reasons ~ will begin to melt away.
You will shed.
You will remember.
Your soul gifts.
You will learn to shift from existing to exhilarating!!
<<< The world needs you! Yes! You have incredible gifts that are needed. >>>
But to just exist, is to put those gifts to the side saying “oh when I’m not so busy I’ll dust you off”. Well, it is time to stop dusting the shelf that no one looks at and to polish the stars that are awaiting patiently to burst from your heart.
It is time to Try Hard to Find Your Fierce. And guess what? When you do, life will feel so much easier. Ahhhhh....
