… does NOT lead to success.

Action born out of inspiration, does.

As humans we try and muscle our way through life. We force actions and we force our agenda onto our own timelines and we wonder why the actions we take do not yield the desired outcomes we seek.

If you do not feel inspired to take an action, don’t take it. Wait on it. Not feeling inspired to take an action is a clear indication that you are not aligned with the action you need to take. Take a time out —  take a reset — go take a nap  — go for a walk in nature — go seek some inspiration. Once you find a bit of inspiration, you will align with your higher guidance and then you will naturally be called to take the exact actions that will yield the desired outcomes you seek. 

It’s an inspiration game. Action alone will not yield success. Action that is born out fear, anxiety, desperation or struggle will be met with much resistance. This is because action can only take you so far in life. It’s a lower dimensional means of manifestation.

When an action comes from a place of passion, excitement, enthusiasm and inspiration, it will energetically charge the action that you are taking and thus yield the positive outcome you seek. 

Vibration trumps action. If the energy behind the action is not igniting the action, it will fall flat. Action born out of struggle never leads to success. If struggle is behind your action, it’s destined to follow in that direction. Never force anything. If you don’t feel inspired, don’t do it. Wait until the moment of inspiration comes. Save your energy — once you’re sufficiently inspired, you can channel that energy into your action and watch the magic unfold.

11524-It-s-Always-Darkest-Before-Dawn… that is how you know a new day is coming.

Just when you think you cannot bare anymore darkness, life shifts. It has to. Nothing ever stays the same. Life is in constant fluctuation and change.

The ending of a phase of life heralds in the dawn of a new day. It is important to remember the nature of life’s cycles. Darkness is the phase where one simply cannot see and Light is the phase where answers can be readily found.

When you are in a period of darkness, it can only last so long.  It is NEVER forever. Once it hits its darkest point, the light must return. Vice versa, once the light has shown us the way, it is time for the darkness to return in order for us to learn something new about ourselves. The darkness brings opportunity for growth. It brings us situations and people that challenge us and force us to look beyond our limitations for answers.

The light is our reward for finding our way through the darkness. The darkness shapes your character and is one of your greatest teachers.

Don’t be afraid of the dark. Find new ways of moving through the darkness and keep your head up because you know once you hit the darkest point, the sun has to return, it can be no other way. In the interim, don’t just wait for the sun to come out; learn how to navigate your way through the darkness. Managing the darkness will make you much happier and much more adept at enjoying the light of your life.
