Opening up is hard to do and the challenge of the Great Work is to stay in your process even when you want to hit the ‘eject’ button. Recently I traveled to Japan to deepen my study with this work and I’m finding the tremendous impact of that time continuing to bear fruit in my everyday, lived life.
A big theme for me in the last year has been focus, and I’m continuing to make inroads into the alchemy of that conversation. Our teachers say that everyday we should be working with the combination of lust, heart, and focused intent to manifest the reality we want to live in.
Where I’ve gone awry in the past has been around getting very excited about a variety of projects. Since I have many competencies and talents, and a drive to get shit done, I also have a valuable contribution to make towards them.
So I end up stretching myself too thin through those commitments. By that I mean I become ineffective in producing results everywhere because I’m not bringing enough focus in any one place or project.
Even with an aligned heart energy and sustained lust to produce the fruits of that project, without the focused intention I really can’t get anywhere with it.
To that end, I’ve been making changes slowly but surely. The Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Light has been holding the pace of my progress compassionately and now it’s time to rev up the engine of transformation and change once again!
I closed one of my businesses in January that’s been fairly successful though not very glamorous over the years. That was hard to do. I didn’t want to and I knew I had to in order to realize and activate more of what I am becoming.
This act opened up a whole chunk of time for me to re-invest into my other projects that allow me to do my heart work in the world and fulfill the mission I’m here to accomplish with greater impact. Generally, I’m happier for it and may not be worse off for it financially. New clients and paid projects have emerged since then to allow for me expand into the work I’m destined to do.
A greater impact
I’ve been able to accelerate my learning and development to support the bigger energy that I’m pulling down to support myself, my family, and my community. This has resulted in more people stepping forward to realize their truth and express their unique divinity. This has also provided to me more opportunities aligned with my mission to express my unique divinity as well!
So, when the going gets tough, remember to stay present to your mission (heart), choose where you’re at, and focus your intent on where you want to be to forward that mission (lust). The world needs you to do your Great Work!
