Good morning friends! This is an unusually early morning for me. I set my alarm for 6:30am, which is already early, but couldn’t sleep and woke up long before that, after spending much of the night tossing and turning, with a mind full of thoughts. I don’t know if it’s the New Moon or leftover effects from the pre-treatment steroid I took nearly 24 hours ago, but since last night I HAVE BEEN BUZZING FULL OF ENERGY! Whatever it is, I’m here for it and I’m letting it flow!
Speaking of the New Moon, I admittedly do not know much about moon cycles, astrology or how it all affects us, but I’m learning and am leaning into it. I’ve been participating in moon gatherings led by the amazing Alisha through her Yoke and Abundance community. Last night, we learned more about the New Moon in Taurus, journaled, and had some great discussions around it all.
My biggest realization was that I have not been putting out into the Universe what it is I want to manifest around what I’m currently working on. Rather, I have been playing small around it and really downplaying it. The truth is, I want this work to make a huge impact on the lives of others and that starts NOW (well, actually it started last night with my journaling!).
One of the best ways to manifest, is to SPEAK IT and SHARE IT, so here goes my friends….
TRUTH: I am writing a memoir and I want this work of heART to make an impact on thousands. Screw that, hundreds of thousands!!! I want it to be successful. I will not do all of this work and pour my heart into this work for nothing. It’s a lot of damn work y’all! Yes, the process of writing it and processing my truths, that is for me. But, that is not where the work ends or why this book will be published and reach the hands of so many, with tools that can improve their lives and the lives of generations to follow.
WHAT I’VE BEEEN SAYING/THINKING: I’m working on a new project. It’s mostly for me. I need to do this on my own, because asking for help is a weakness and decreases the work I’ve done. If I keep it to myself or make it a small thing, then it won’t matter if I don’t finish it or if it’s not received by others as I want it to be. Who am I to write a memoir? I am not as good of a writer as the authors I read and love. (hint, this is all BULLSHIT!!!)
So, I asked myself, “What do I need to change or release, in order to manifest this abundantly?”
From here on out…
- I speak only powerful words in regards to this work. I will no longer downplay what I am working on or the impact it will have on others
- I let go of the belief that asking for and receiving help is a weakness (damn old stories rearing their ugly heads again!) and I proudly ask for and accept help by way of guidance, experience and accountability in the writing process.
- I release the need to control and to rush the process and I accept and believe that the timeline is unfolding exactly as it is and should be (reminder to self: it took months to write a chapter for The Success Formula. You are not going to write a book in that same damn timeframe, so stop thinking you need to.)
I’ll leave you with this….
What do you want to bring into your future and are you currently manifesting it? If not, how will you change that to align your goals & desires with your affirmations & truths?
