They challenged me. And I am accepting the “Your Turn Challenge” put forth by Winnie who is Seth Godin’s Special Projects Lead to write one blog post [article] everyday for seven days. I’ve been wanting to get back into blogging and make it a regular habit for a long time now.
Did my Spirit Guides send me the “Your Turn Challenge”? Answer: “Yes!”
Seth Godin’s email arrived in my inbox and I just knew it was a sign from the universe, a message from my Spirit Guides, that it’s time to get moving on my blog again.
I enjoy writing so this challenge should be easy. However, I haven’t been too disciplined over the last few years. Why? Well…I’ve been on a spiritual journey which took me out of my old routine and has me going more with the flow these days. I surrendered. I let go of control. So I could be guided by my Spirit Guides more easily. And stop resisting the new life I’m now creating.
Spirit Guides. Is that term unfamiliar to you? It was not familiar to me either prior to about 2009 when things in my life started changing…very drastically. And quite dramatically on a fateful day in December 2o10! That was when my Spirit Guides made themselves known in an undeniable way.
But it all really started consciously for me in April 2009 when I took a class called Lightworkers 101. I say consciously because that’s when I made a conscious decision to take this spiritual path, all in the name of love. (In the name of love? I’ll explain later in a future blog post.)
I trace the noticeable unconscious beginnings to around 2007 when I started meditating with Holosync Meditations. Things I didn’t understand and couldn’t explain started happening to me. (More details about that in future blog posts.)
Back to the Lightworkers 101 class. I had no idea what this class was about because my friend is the one who wanted to take it. Not me. I didn’t even know what “Lightworkers” were, or what that word meant. I just did it because a 2-for-1 special was offered for the class. So I decided to take it with her.
Before that I was doing pretty normal things like working as an accountant, paying bills, looking for love and building a new network marketing business. The goal with my new business was to make enough money to finance my dream of living my passion of singing.
Today my life is so different than it was back then. It’s taken me a while to get used to it as I let go of old programming and conditioning in order to embrace more fully the new path I set my feet upon—a path into the unknown with no footprints to follow.
As things unfolded on my new path, it got pretty challenging. And even scary at times. (I’ll save the details for a future blog post and keep you in suspense for a bit.) Things are not so challenging or scary anymore because I understand things better now. However, the level of understanding just keeps growing. There always seems to be more to learn.
I do things much more spontaneously now than I ever have before. And there has been little-to-no routine in my life which has actually been really nice. But now I’m ready for more routine so I can get some things going that have sat stagnant for a while.
Thank you, Winnie and Seth, for inspiring more routine in my life. In honor of starting routines, I’m also including a workout routine each day.
Wait! I take that back. I should probably start small so I don’t take on more than I can handle. I’m such a perfectionist that incorporating too many routines at once can be overwhelming. Maybe I’ll wait until this blogging challenge becomes a habit, and then start the next routine.
I’ll still keep working out. I just may not do it everyday. Today’s workout was a great one, though, as I hiked the hills of a beautiful property on Kauai, the Garden Isle of Hawaii, for 50 minutes and then did some other exercises, stretching and yoga outside in the beautiful sunshine.
It’s a great day for starting my blog again. Stay tuned for more…
