Living Aligned With The Flow & Magic of Life
I was on the plane flying into Hawaii for my annual 5 week getaway into nature when I suddenly remembered upon landing that I hadn’t booked my hotel for that first night. I had two opportunities to book a hotel. Once when I made my flight and again when confirming my flight, but I just didn’t feel guided to.
On the plane I made my list of intentions for my “Ideal Trip to Hawaii” which included “connecting with open, spiritual, heart centered happy people who share the same values as me and have wonderful gifts and talents that are willing and thrilled to share with me.”
The trip got off to a great start – on both flights I manifested extra leg room emergency exit row seating – sweet! I’m 6’2″ so that gift just made my vacation! And then – I heard guy the sitting next to me talk about a sermon he was giving.
We got to chatting and he told me about his brush with depression, how it nearly killed him, how he overcame it, wrote a book about it, and now was here with a group of missionaries over the next 10 days to speak and empower people to embrace God into their lives.
I told him I was an author as well and he gave me his book. I met his friends who were all fabulous open and warm spiritual people who instantly embraced me and we traveled through the airport together.
They invited me to their hotel, a bus with a tour guide picked us up from the airport and we laughed our way to a great hotel where I got my own room. I woke up in the morning and had breakfast with my new friends and spent the ENTIRE morning immersed in great company exploring spiritual ideas, stories and spontaneous healing.
Oh – and the bus station I had to get to in order to make my way up north that same day was situated only a 10 minute taxi drive from my hotel. I LOVE MY LIFE! Can it get any better than this?
This experience of divine synchronicity coming in to guide me was a beautiful way to start off my trip, and talking with my new friends got me thinking just how little room we make in our lives for “The Universe” – or God to come in and “surprise us” with grace.
You know what I mean, these amazing connections and synchronicities, when things just pop in almost delivered to you on a silver platter.
Think about it, just how jammed packed is your schedule? With all the meetings, appointments, clients, networking events, writing, proposals, etc., when was the last time you scheduled in some time to just EXPLORE what life has in store for you?
Schedule time for yourself to just BE, to be in the flow of life, to let go of the reigns a bit and I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised. Look at your calendar and block some “ME” time out. If you don’t block it out I guarantee your work and business will. The most common complaint I hear from my clients is that there is NEVER enough time. You have to make time, that’s the whole illusion of time.
I had no other plans for my 5 week trip other than to teach a special workshop along the way. I said YES to life – I was invited by a client of mine who purchased my book last year when it came out, how perfect is that?
I love how my speaking career has me sharing myself in a place where my toes get to delight in wearing flip flops! And get this – a year ago to the date EXACTLY on March 8th when my client received my book in the mail last year, I arrived in here in Hawaii this year – March 8th. Love the synchronicity!
And it keeps getting better – so my message for you today my breakthrough to success tip is to create some space in your schedule to allow grace to show up and surprise you. I promise you won’t die if you let go of control.
Who knows where life might take you, you might even wind up on a beach somewhere sipping lemonade in the sun. The universe has a perfect plan for you if you will only allow it to unfold.
To Your Love, Expansion and Freedom,
