When taking a risk is as important as taking a breath

I felt so much tension in my body this morning I knew there was something I wanted to say that I was not saying. I had been trying to ask someone to do something with me and every time I was about to ask them the conversation turned to another topic. And I made it mean I was not supposed to ask. (I did not even ask a question about it!)

But it kept coming up so I just did it. And when they answered yes I felt so much lightness and expansion I knew this was the “right” choice.

So how many times have you stopped yourself because it was too scary? Or because it did not look “in the flow”?

What if taking a risk was the step that was required right now for you to move forward?

What if you don’t take a risk you die?

Do you have some kind of ailment that keeps coming back no matter what you do? Do you have a situation that won’t budget no matter how much thinking and efforting you have taken on? What if all that was required was to do that one thing you think is crazy or makes no sense at all?

What if you reserved a hotel in the place you want to visit so badly and then figure out how to get there? What if you asked that hot guy or hot girl out and finally get an answer? What if you borrowed money to take that class and see what you can create from there? What if you moved across country without knowing where you will land?

What if asking the question you wanted to ask would deliver everything you ever dreamt of?

How does it get any better than this?

What if funny was true?

I used to do stand up comedy. My favorite thing about it was that I could tell my true stories and make people laugh. The truer, the funnier. So when Access Consciousness tells me “The truth will make you feel lighter and a lie will make you feel heavier”, I know I have already experienced it.

I was in my shower today exploring new possibilities for my business when a giggle took over me. I first wondered what was so funny. Then I realized I was just seeing how true the new ideas were for me.

I often hear people talk about truth and feeling good as two different things. But what if it was not? What if you felt good because you knew whatever you were saying, being, or doing was true? Would that make movies and books much closer to textbooks or documentaries? Yes!!!!!

And what if every time you heard something that made you feel heavy, restricted or closing doors it was false? Wouldn’t that make the news a whole lot of BS?

You see what I mean :)

I bet now you can’t wait to see what makes you giggle?

How does it get any better than that?

 

Day 28 through 30 – Meeting Me for the first time

I just did a 4 day class with Access Consciousness Facilitator Lisa Guisiana and it shattered any idea of what I thought the world was like and who I was for that matter.

And that is a good thing.

I just went shopping at a mall because I wanted to find clothes that reflected more who I was. And every time I picked something, I realized I was either thinking about 1 person or a group of people who would like it. I kept wondering what I wanted just for me.

Then I realized that it did not matter. It did not matter that someone else liked it or that I was buying it for them or for me. It does not matter as long as I am completely aware of it, choosing to either do it or not and that it reflects my priorities in this moment.

That was big for me. I am a new business owner and I was used to “dress for the job”, may it be as an employee, a mom, a friend, an artist. I knew what I liked in these roles. But as a business owner, I get to choose who I want to be all the time. Of course, this is why I am choosing to be a business owner but this is the first time I got it.

However, in the same stroke, the people I am looking to do business with respond more to certain ways of being. One way was make up. I don’t wear make up and don’t particularly like it. But I keep hearing how it is a way to “honor” our clients. That pi***d me off a little. I respect my clients as well without make up. Then I realized that my clients enjoy seeing someone with make up. So by wearing make up I am acknowledging them and I can do it in a way that honors myself too.

What I realized today was that who I am is a blank canevas at all times. I get to choose every 10 seconds who I choose to be in that moment and there  is never a wrong choice.

I started this 30 day challenge to see what I could create with my thoughts. The truth is I am creating whatever I am choosing in this moment. And that means I get to create again and again.

Day 24 & 25 – It never stops

I started this video summit because it felt really fun. I connected with amazing people and got to laugh. I created something from A to Z, learning all that it took and more. I launched the creation. Other people enjoyed it. They told me about it. It is really cool.

But I know inside my gut that it does not stop there. This is cool, really cool, yet I know more is possible. So I ask what else is possible, what contribution can I be? And I get more answers. I am now creating a Blissful Living community to invite people to share their own tips. And I am having more and more ideas on what people may enjoy :)

I was often asked when I would be satisfied when I was younger because I was one of these people who kept moving, kept learning, kept dreaming about something else. And I did think for a while that there was something wrong with me.

But now I totally get it. The energy does not stop. It keeps flowing, it keeps changing. And the more I tune in the energy around me the more I see new possibilities for myself and those around me.

If the energy does not stop, and since I am made of energy, there is no way I can stop. I do not even want to stop. It is too exciting and thrilling.

How does it get any better than this?

Day 16 & 17 – How can we create something we don’t know?

And I am not actually asking for techniques. I know the ways we can feel “as if” or get the same feelings as if we were living it what we want already.

I am actually talking about the feeling that there is something more for us and we don’t know what it is. How do we go about doing that?

I was taught to think about something I want and go for it so when someone tells me I am aligning with something big, I can’t help but ask what is it? What does it look like?

Funny how trained we are to seek answers. But since we don’t know what we don’t know, how can we come up with an answer?

We don’t need to. There is a big universe whose sole purpose is to support us. Why? Because we come from the universe. If we are created, then why wouldn’t our growth be supported?

So when we ask a question, we are really asking to connect with the energy of the answer. Once we do, the universe can start actualizing that energy in ways we would have never thought possible.

This is what LOA students call “feeling the feeling first”.

So when I ask “what would it take for rain to pour in my area? ” I can start being the energy of rain giving life to the plants around me:)

How does it get any easier than that?

Day 14 & 15 – The good, the bad and the possibility

Yesterday was one of my best and worst day in a while. I connected with my local community in new ways and I attracted new beautiful experiences and knowing.
Then toward the evening, when I had taken the steps toward relaxation (drinking wine), something happened that caused fear and disappointment on my part. I knew I really was the one causing it but in a few seconds I forgot all about what I am talking about here and started blaming someone else.

After a few uncomfortable exchange of emails and some deep breathing, I was clear that my circumstance would not change unless I took responsibility for the emotion and asked what else was possible. Now I was willing to consider a new possibility.

This is why I love Access Consciousness. It teaches us tools and processes to remove the polarity, not to make something wrong right. Once something just is, it allows so many more possibilities.

I do not describe many tools of Access but today I really want to be grateful for the tool of saying “this is an interesting point of view” every time I hear a point of view in my head or someone gives me theirs. If I wake up feeling moody, I can say “it’s an interesting point of view”. If my boss feels that I did not respond to his email fast enough, I can say “it is an interesting point of view”. If the news say these are bad economic times, I can say “it is an interesting point of view”.

Just saying this feels like a window opening up in my brain. Tensions disappears and I can breathe better.

What if every though was an interesting point of view?

Day 12 – Do we really need to learn to share?

I have two young daughters who often play together. They also play with neighbor kids and therefore share toys, bikes, and experiences.

I love when kids genuinely play together. They often come up with solutions that some of our leaders could learn to model.

But at times a child will want to play with their own toy by themselves. And whether someone else wants to play with their toy does not really matter to them. It’s their toy and they have no problem saying no.

As adults, we often feel obligated to tell them to “learn to share”. I am often the first one. But I wonder how valid this is. Knowing that my child does have experiences of community, should she always be willing to share what she has? Isn’t it also respecting her than to say “it’s ok for her to be selfish”?

I own a car. While I have no problem lending it to a friend in need of a ride, I also know no one would “force me” to share my car.

So why should we force a child to share? Or even limit their time of pleasure? (as in take turns).

When it is a game or object shared by the community, I love the idea of teaching them the joy of common experience, but when it is something they consider their own, I feel that respecting their desire for play is a much needed allowance.

How does it get any better than that?
