Today’s thoughts are about fulfillment. The deep kind. The “I’ve made a positive change in the lives of many, using the skills that resonate with my soul, and am deeply appreciated for it,” type of fulfillment we all yearn for.
Today, I watched a livestream on Facebook of my Reiki master (and yoga and belly dance teacher) cutting the ribbon and being welcomed by officials of the city to the brand new location for their wellness center. My life changed the moment I first encountered them. Naturally, seeing this had brought tears to my eyes.
This beautiful moment was not long after another one, where I was watching Katya Turner at indigodiaries.com and feeling the usual joyous rush that her videos give me towards sharing my own gifts in flow, and that, too, occured just a bit before seeing a bright and shiny post on Facebook by Leija Turunen, who was a massive inspiration for me in past years.
Seeing these women who affect so many people through their sharing of helpful perspectives (clearly including me) and sharing what their journeys have brought them… it lights me up inside, and it also gives me that contrast… feeling how strongly I want to have that impact on a larger scale, and realizing I am equally capable. Something each of us should take note of right now. We are capable. And there is one small thing that creates the foundation.
Consistent focus is the key.
It’s all about consistent focus, and small actions. We get these big goals that can seem so far away, but when we break it down, we see it’s just a series of small, simple steps that are actually easy.
In general, for a plant to grow, it needs to have moist soil and sunshine pretty regularly. Multiple times a week. My project, for example, is similarly simple. I need to put helpful and inspiring info into some form, and then put it in places where the right people can see it. It’s part of a much bigger dream, which involves eventual permaculture and eco building workshops and retreats, complete with Reiki certification and delving into one’s own evolution in a magical and nurturing cosmic-love tribe… but these are the first steps to building foundations, and so that’s all I need to focus on in order to make progress. But, reaching further into the light and deepening your roots is a constant process, so, sometimes we need to add some extra nutrients to the soil, and get creative.
Currently, working full time and healing myself allows for me to write about once a week without it becoming a drain on me.
But if I am to truly reach more of the right people, I must strive for more in a way that will suit me. So, I hire my best friend to help with marketing, and I start making plans to do videos, to add to my blog, and to youtube, as it is the platform that most inspires me. This extends my reach without draining me, and allows me to help someone I care about to make a little extra money. Aaaaand it increases my enthusiasm for the project, and makes me suddenly part of a team. It’s all winning aaaaall around.
So, here is the real question? What is your fulfillment capable of becoming? How do you see yourself nurturing a project on a weekly basis to improve the lives of others? What is making your soul sing, out of all the things that you’ve pondered?
I know there is something in there, and you’re going to make it shine. You’re going to water your little garden, place it in the light of your focus, and be more than amazed at what grows. And if you need a friend along the way, I’ve always got you, Goddess to Goddess.
All my love,
