“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
What would you be doing if you had the power?
What if you have that power latent within you, just waiting for you to call to it, to unwrap it, to greet it with love and joy?
What would you do? How would your life be different?
Muhammad Ali overcame amazing obstacles and fought against not only boxing opponents but –more importantly– threats against his life and freedom. Sometimes we take freedom, or even the lack of it, for granted.
When your soul pushes against impinging limits and the urge to grow rises up within you, it’s time. It’s time to dare to be you, dare to be your full self, dare to stand up and declare yourself.
As much as my knees are knocking, I know it’s time to stand up.
Heck, Elvis turned his stage-fright-induced wobbly knees into an iconic sexy move! Hopefully I can find the same inspiration and strength within myself.
The last week has been utterly amazing. Half great, half awful. Healing, sick, strong, weak, ringing in the ears, systems purging, downloading of new vibrations, the Universe telling me to say YES, not feeling well, not saying yes, staying in bed with chills and fevers, a friend crossing over, feeling so sad, glad to be alive, looking for Yes-portunities, backing down again, literally waking up the next morning feeling great and like a new woman, going to church and being led into a new opportunity that I’m totally ready for, even though a bit nervous. After church, a group of potential new members was asked to discuss with each other a bunch of questions, sort of a get to know ourselves and each other type thing, and one of those questions was “How would I like to be remembered?”. Something I’d never really considered. But as we talked, I realized that I’d really like to step up my game and have a bigger impact, help more people. How precisely to do that, I don’t know yet, but I do know that you can make great things happen by declaring what you want and doggedly going after it, even if, like Ali, you have to go to the other side of the world to do it.
I literally did do that many years ago, and that was the point for me, to go somewhere far away, where their language was different, and challenge within myself my ideas of how life is supposed to be and work. It was an awesome experience, and even though there were many trials and tribulations, including daily threat of death and rape, I am still completely glad I did it. I miss it in some ways. Perhaps the thing I miss the most is being really activated. I LOVE what I do now, and I’m definitely doing the right things, but coming out of the “broom closet” about it has been scary for me, which has by default meant that instead of standing up tall and free and yelling “Hey, I’m over here and I’m available to help you with your spiritual stuff“, I’ve kind of been sitting in the corner and sort of mumbling it, quietly, with my head down.
So what am I
going to do doing to overcome this?
I’m shifting my attitude and focus to now, not later, not the past with its baggage from this and other lifetimes, not to the future with all sorts of scary pitfalls and outcomes, but to NOW, to the resources I have at hand now, to opening my ears, third eye, and heart to inspiration, to continuing to clear, heal, and strengthen my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd chakras (grounding/community, creativity/creation, personal power), to the potential within me.
I’m daring to be me!
I’m open to the miracles of Spirit, to the guidance and protection She provides, to the myriads of angels surrounding me making miracles happen, dissolving barriers and lighting my path with rainbows.
PS: If you have some constructive suggestions on how I can be of greater and better service, please let me know — I’d love to really ramp up my outreach and my services!!
