Going With the Flow vs. Having Structure

successLast night I attended a meeting of my Abraham-Hicks support group.  We were all over the place.  First we chatted about our lives (“what is”) over a potluck dinner, then we gathered to practice Abraham empowering techniques.

Abraham is all about letting go of the oars.  Giving up the struggle.  Acting only when inspired.  In other words, going with the flow of life.

I have always wondered about having structure, goals, action plans, organized anything vs. going with the natural flow of life.  It seems that when I give up the oars, give up the battle to make things happen, there is a natural un-foldment.

If I set my intention and get a clear picture in my mind of what I want to manifest, and then let go, it usually shows up, or something better.  Where attention goes, energy flows.

Recently, I’ve attempted to research certain information online (that I thought I needed) for the success of my business.  I keep running into closed doors, roadblocks, seminars that have long passed, links that do not work, and teachers who are not willing to share their knowledge.  That’s a sign for me, to open to new possibilities. That perhaps the road I thought I should take, is not the path for me.  So, my oars are out of the water. My mind is open to new possibilities, and a new direction will be revealed.  Have you had a similar experience?


Nothing Is More Powerful Than Telling Your Vision

Years ago, I went to see a woman who was Clairvoyant.  I was so bored with my accounting job and asked if she saw any new direction in my career path.  “You’ll be Writing” she said.  “What would I write about”? I asked, thinking she was crazy.  “All kinds of things.” was her reply.

At that point in my life, I didn’t see a way out of my accounting field.  How would I earn a living if I quit my job? What would I do?   My mind was full of questions and I could not see the obvious answers.

Some time after that encounter, I was seated in the front row of Zanie’s Comedy Club in Nashville, TN.  As the comic spewed out his routine, I got ideas to write about.  He mentioned his childhood, and the word “pogo stick” hit me like a ton of bricks.  He mentioned something else, and it spurred another memory that I wanted to put down on paper.  I had a little notebook with me and as he spoke, I jotted down the words that I wanted to remember “pogo stick”, etc.

He couldn’t help but notice me writing and he leaned over with his microphone: “And what do you do for a living?” he asked with anticipation.

It came out of my mouth like lightening.  In front of hundreds of people, I said:  “I’m a writer!”.  With that, the comedian became very uncomfortable. And the waitress came up to me and told me that if I did not put my notebook away, that I would be escorted out of the club.  Geez Louise.  I was just making a statement to the world about who and what I was.  His act, was not worth stealing, but I didn’t dare make a scene.  So I slipped my notebook into my pocket and relished in the idea that everyone in that room (including me) KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I was  – indeed – a writer.

Since that time, I have established a writing business and I specialize in working with the holistic community. I’ve edited books, manuscripts, articles, documents, website content and have even re-written several booklets for a Catholic priest. I also build WordPress blogs and websites for clients. I’ve gradually let go of my accounting commitments and am now working as a full time writer, social networker and blog/site builder.

Pay attention to those inner urges, those little pulls that keep popping up in your head.  And then find a place to tell your vision.  You may not choose to announce it in a comedy club, but words are SO powerful and just stating them outloud with intention, will move mountains.


Oprah Used a Vision Board to Visualize Barack Obama as President

I just read an empowering post written by John Assaraf – Master Teacher of The Secret.

This is inspiring!

Dreams do come true! Talk show star Oprah Winfrey revealed this week that she uses a vision board to visualize her goals and harness the power of intention. So what did Oprah have on her vision board? The gown she intended to wear to a very special event – the Obama inauguration.

Here’s what Oprah told a New York radio station on Tuesday:

“I was speaking with Michelle (Obama) and Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver – we were all doing a big rally out in California. At the end of the rally Michelle Obama said something powerful, ‘and I want you to leave here and envision Barack Obama taking the oath of office.’ I created a vision board. I had never had a vision board before. I came home, I got me a board and put Barack Obama’s picture on it and I put a picture of my dress I want to wear to the inauguration.”
