I learned that there IS a way out of and beyond any situation that we are less than happy about. This way is genuine, inspired creativity. Our creativity comes from one place only, and that is our connection to Divine Source.
We may have looked to other people to “solve” our situation. No go. We may have looked “out there somewhere” for a solution, only to find a dead end. The ONLY solution exists within our Divine co-creative capacity to discover the solution from within, and THEN we can “see” a new view that feels inspired, lighter, hopeful and downright empowering.
If you think that as a self-help spiritual author and teacher I never have a day without feeling down, allow me give you a newsflash: there are many days that I don’t feel like “Ms. Born to Inspire.” There are many days where my outer “image” looks the exact opposite of how I sometimes feel. There have been times when I felt like my “happy image” was a façade. Not true. I’ve had many, many days of bliss, and joy, as well as many, many days of tears or feeling down.
There is ALWAYS a creative solution that exists within your heart to transform ANY situation to one that looks and feels exactly the way you want it to.
If you feel the blues, allow it to pass. Feelings ALWAYS pass. Even the good ones, as you may well know. Well, the not-so-good feelings ALWAYS pass too!
Shift your focus on to exactly what you would like to create from THIS moment forward. Allow the past to remain in the past. If you have nay-sayers in your life, PLEASE remove them from your company. Only allow the people that are emotionally supportive of you to be in your life. As for the others, simply tell them nothing, or leave the conversation to house chores, like laundry!
Ask the universe to give you an idea. Ask for Divine assistance from whomever you pray to. Start to move your energy into a positive “I CAN DO IT” attitude. (I give Louise Hay full credit for that saying – she is such an inspiration!)
Sometimes when life has its ebb, as opposed to flow, we don’t like the stillness that much. Sometimes it’s time to plant, to build a solid foundation, to go within and look into your heart for the source of your creativity to bring you higher than you may be feeling this moment.
Do not “judge” your feelings. They flow, and there is no “right” or “wrong” feeling, anymore than you would judge someone for physically feeling too hot or too cold.
Do not judge YOURSELF, period! You may wish to be in a different place, and you can be! The key is to become your own best friend, so that you have yourself in your corner, no matter WHAT others may say.
There is always a creative solution to bring you from feeling down, to feeling on top of the world. Look for the solution, instead of focusing on the “problem.” Many times, the “problem” or situation is there as a GIFT to bring you into alignment with your highest purpose – one that is lived from the inside out. NEVER live from the outside in, because then you will be chasing after goals, forever.
The KEY is to FEEL a heart-centered alignment with what you are doing, and for your motive to be, do and have all you would like to see in your life because it brings you joy, and is a heart-felt contribution to uplift life on Earth.
That is the greatest joy! Even if you plant a tree or a flower, you are still uplifting life on Earth.
It is important that your validation comes from your heart, and not from others. It is equally important that you view yourself on equal footing with the rest of humanity, and never place yourself above or below anyone, because that would be lying to yourself.
Where there is judgment, creativity is blocked. Where there is despair, creativity is blocked. Where there is a genuine heart-felt desire to rise above the circumstances in your life, it is that open heart of yours that will open up the energy for Divine, inspiring creativity to flow through you. And there, is your gift.
No matter WHAT you are going through, please trust that it is in front of you to take you to a Higher place on all levels. I know firsthand that this is truth.
You can create your way above and beyond anything you have ever imagined. Simply believe that you can, ask for Divine assistance, Divine ideas, and watch yourself get really inspired to shift and rise on all levels.
You are Divine Source Energy. Your heart is the channel of this energy. Focus your mind on what your heart would love the most, and allow the inspiration to flow through you. It will. I can guarantee that.
