What do you do when you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and unable to focus or accomplish your goal? Do you push harder or do you step back and try to find your rudder, and a way to bring clarity back into the picture?
When I was much younger and things didn’t magically fall into place I would push harder, try to endure, and stay on task. Sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn’t. When I experience a serious head injury everything change. All of a sudden, I was no longer able to override my inner direction. Instead I had to listen to my body and allow it to guide me one tiny step at a time. To say the least, it was a very humbling experience.
There was no more forcing with the mind set of doing it ‘my way’. I also wasn’t able to carry other people and/or situations. I was left with the ability to only listen and follow my inner guidance. In the beginning this was difficult, for me and for others who were used to me being so strong and so capable. But over time, I began to see that this lighter, and ultimately more gentle path was better for me and everyone else.
So what did I learn from this experience? How did that difficult journey helped me become more in tune with myself and the Universe?
Now when I am feeling stressed or I realize I am incapable of doing something, instead of pushing through in the old way, I try to step back, remember what I am trying to accomplish (the bigger picture) and then from a slower and more receptive place I look for subtle clues to guide and support me in accomplishing my goal. To encourage this inward direction I usually ask myself a series of questions: What is my ultimate goal? Why is this important? Who will it impact? When does it need to happen and where am I needed the most?
You don’t have to experience a head injury or go through a long and difficult journey of recovery to learn a new way too approach life and accomplish your goals. There is a much simpler way.
With this in mind I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE, because they are an easy way to reconnect with your internal rudder and find the support and guidance you need to accomplish your goals.
Also, in a recent interview, said, “Freedom is the ability to create without the limitation of generational programming. The I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program is a gateway and a pathway into a new and better future because it allows children to fully express themselves and to not be limited by the beliefs that have been passed down from generation to generation. This program also frees up children’s minds and allows their creative nature to create a better world for all of us, which is what we need right now!”
