This past couple of weeks, I’ve been experiencing flashes of visions I had nearly five years ago. Snippets of book signings, travel and speaking have been popping in like popcorn.
All of these flashes took me back in time. I thought about when I first worked with Alliseah and how we worked together to write, The Power of Love. At the time, I was very much still in achiever mode, and I thought that I would write the book and spring off into my next phase of life. People were experiencing profound shifts from simply reading the book. The would see the world differently and feel more expansive and loving.
Of course, I thought that they would tell others and things would take off and I would be writing more and more books just like that one. But that didn’t happen.
Instead, I was guided one day to a fair to offer intuitive sessions and, once there, found I was then guided to a gentleman who was there to do the same thing! Are we noticing a pattern of Spirit guiding us to one thing and me thinking it means something else?
Well, I sit down begrudgingly, but open to hear what comes through. The guy says, “Who are you?” This was something I was accustomed to hearing, although I never really knew what they meant, and I rarely knew what to say. I responded, “I’m just me.” He went on to say I had an important book. It would go out into the world for many people. Now, let me tell you, this guy did not know me from Adam! But, my ego loved hearing this good news, and I said, “Well, when will it take off?” He said, “In three years.”
I thought, “WHAT?!!!” Then I asked, “Wait, which book are you talking about? The one I just finished?”
He replied, “No, your next one.”
I have no idea why I was guided to this gentleman. I have no idea why I went, but I felt SO DEFLATED after that. I just felt like, “Well, that is going to take FOREVER! I might as well not even try!”
Of course, this is how the ego sounds, how our personalities get all invested in outcomes and destinations and how we can miss the journey.
I share this because now you can laugh along with me that it took me THREE years to get up the courage to even PUBLISH my second book! Turns out, just writing the book is one of the easier parts for me. A much larger part of my journey (and I suspect everyone else’s, too) is getting ready to claim my divine Presence and to be that as a conduit for God’s love to flow through.
Hmmm, now three years doesn’t sound like such a long time.
Plus, along the way, you quit trying to ‘get there’ as you really “GET” that ‘now’ is the only time! Hmmm, you think I needed to write a book called, MUST BE PRESENT, to really ‘get’ that?
You bet I did! I remember telling my book coach, Jan King, “You know, I wrote this book for myself.” She replied, “Yes, you did.”
But, the truth is that humanness is humanness and none of us gets out of here without a taste of it. So my journey, may be similar to yours, may be similar to someone else’s.
Now, I understand the difference between achieving to achieve and achieving to serve and express my divine essence. I also ‘see’ that there is a LOT to do to ‘go’ and to be ready (at least ready ‘enough’ and courageous enough to believe in something greater than you and in a vision that feels huge). And, gee, it only took me five years to get here!
So, the next time you feel like it is taking FOREVER on your soul path, just think of me and know that many people walk the same way…some take 20 years, some take 50, some take 5, some take a year or less. Your journey will be perfect for you! And, here’s the secret, every step – no matter how mundane it might look – is part of the puzzle and each step is important. This ‘gestation’ period I’ve been has been one of the richest phases of my entire life.
