A big myth lurks in our society. It invades all aspects of our lives from our relationships to our careers to our free time. It is this: nothing happens unless we ‘do’ something to make it happen. Yes, ‘doing’ can make things happen; but there is another way, which is less known and celebrated, but yet is just as powerful, if not more powerful. Being open. Notice that I said ‘being’ open, because it truly is a state of being, an energy or vibration at which you flow or resonate. When you are open, opportunities and synchronicities abound!
Perhaps an example would be helpful. A year ago a friend called me with a request. She was asked to write an article on the Divine Feminine and she intuitively thought that I should be the one to write it since I had recently taken a great interest in the topic. I checked with my own intuition and got a ‘yes’, so I wrote the article and submitted it to the publisher. The publisher was thrilled with my article and ended up asking me to write regularly for the magazine! What a fabulous opportunity! The gifts which have continued to flow are amazing!
Here is what I didn’t do. I didn’t decide that I wanted to write articles, research various magazines for which to write, contact editors, write and submit sample articles, follow-up, network like crazy to find someone who knows someone… Instead, I opened myself to any and all opportunities which would benefit me and the world. I set my intention. I received the phone call, checked inside, followed my heart and then wrote the article. The rest, as they say, is history.
What does it take to be open to life? Setting your intention, connecting to your intuition, quieting your thoughts and practice. I’d love to hear the ways in which you are open to life! Leave a comment and let me know!
