We always want to pick at the scab, don’t we? When we do, sooner or later we make it bleed. If we had just let it be, it would have healed much more nicely without so much pain.
Life is like that. Life brings us what we judge as “boo boos” and then we pick them until they bleed and sometimes hemorrhage causing even more pain. The boo boo has a purpose as all “seemingly” good or bad events do. If we just be still; stop thinking, analyzing, STOP PICKING and be with it – “let it be”, it can then reveal its purpose; the message it is bringing and the REAL healing begins.
So recently I hired a life coach. What issue in my life warranted a “Life Coach” you may ask? And what does a “Life Coach” do? I have a predisposition for getting in my own way. In a world that believes without pain there is no gain, the road to success must be painful, long and expensive. I know you’ve heard this one; “You’ve got to spend money to make money”. I grew to also believe without higher education I am undeserving of a successful career or life, even though the lack of that coveted degree has never stopped me from doing anything I put my mind to. These old believes can sabotage our best efforts at success. I have too much to do and too much to give to risk a repeat life lesson. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. The student is ready – enter Life Coach.
I can see now how many of my life’s “twist and turns”, “stops and starts” have brought me something precious and perfect. I can see the steps leading me to the next and the next and the next step until here I sit with the awareness of what the steps were for and how blessed and guided I’ve been. Now that I know the gift I am to share, it’s time to start throwing off more layers of learned believes that are not serving the purpose I have been given. So I’ve been really busy remembering over the last few years who I really am and unlearning the limited being I am not..
As I peel back the layers of untruths, I know what it feels like to be in the flow of life or as my son Justin would say, “Floating the River”. Now I can’t wait until all of my life flows from there. My “reason for being” exist in that river. My gift and my passion! That’s where GOD is! That is what I’m here for – to bring to the world that one piece of the puzzle I’ve been entrusted with that no one else can bring. The Universe is counting on me to BRING IT! When I am bringing THAT – Life is easy and unfettered.
We all hold a piece of the puzzle and withholding that from the world, holds the world back. Each one is part of THE PLAN. The plan that restores Love, Peace & Joy to the world. Life is hard when it goes against the flow of the Plan. When life seems hard and I feel I am swimming up-stream, that is my first clue now “I am not in the flow”. The Flow says, “This is happening, go with it, learn from it, and watch patiently and expectantly for the miracle arising”.
I hired a Life Coach to help me be in this flow in all aspects of my life by assisting me in uncovering and removing the blocks I HAVE created that are plugging up the river. A good Life Coach has a special gift, a knack for gently bringing us face to face with the unconscious thought patterns that color our perceptions, (give us our excuses) and distract us from our purpose. Purpose does not punch a time clock. Life purpose is a 24 hour calling I am ready to answer!
