When something just feels wrong, that is your intuition speaking to you, letting you know that something is off.
The more you ignore that inner wisdom and just bulldoze through, the easier it gets to just keep on bulldozing…. which creates a gigantic mess in your inner world, and makes it harder for yout o re-connect with your inner wisdom.
Bulldozing is not a tool for successful creative dreaming.
But bulldozing is basically what built our world. There’s a lot of it out there and it can be hard to not fall into that pattern.
I planned tomorrow’s Calm For The Holidays Creative Playdate months ago. It’s one of those times when what I need and want I want to offer are one and the same, and I was really looking forward to it.
But as the date approached, something started to feel off. It was subtle at first, and then I became more and more uncomfortable every time I tried to work on it.
A few weeks ago I started to think about cancelling it, because it felt so wrong. But canceling it felt even more wrong!
I did a lot of journaling and a lot of sitting with my feelings and just waiting.
Sometimes I can’t prep for an event like this until the day before because the energy is shifting so much. As soon as people sign up for a transformative event, transformation starts. So sometimes I wait until the last minute so that I am working with the energy that will show up at the event.
But that’s not what was happening this time. Something was really off.
So, instead of prepping for the class, I did even more journaling, even more sitting with my feelings, even more waiting.
And the answer came.
I wrote last week about a huge shift I am making in my work.
As soon as I shifted things around, the Calm For The Holidays Creative Playdate changed.
The feeling of something being off was gone. I happily prepped for the calls and created the playbook and once again I am soooooo looking forward to this.
Calm is a doorway that leads you to whatever you need right now.
Calm is powerful.
Calm is magic.
Doing what you need to do to get into a state of calm, instead of bulldozing through your to-do list, always brings you somewhere amazing,
I am so happy I worked through the tangled parts to get to this place.? Now the Calm For The Holidays Creative Playdate is going to be amazing.? (It’s tomorrow! Come play with us!)
I wanted to share that story as a little reminder of the importance of listening to your feelings.
Don’t be so hell-bent on Making Things Happen that you stop listening to your inner guidance.
Even when it seems like your inner guidance is trying to direct you away from something you really want, listen to it and explore it. Often it’s just showing you a shortcut or an easier path.
