your creative calling: what would you do if you weren't worried about being judged?
Your idea is your capital.
I don't mean that in strictly a financial sense (although, yeah, that too..). I'm talking about the capital on which you can focus your energy and open doors to your authentic path. Your idea is your soul capital.
Coming to your specific idea of how you would like your future to look professionally and personally feels really complicated and fraught with obstacles. We don't just block the idea; we block the manifestation of the idea.
Too many other commitments.
I'm not selfish enough to want to live my own idea.
My partner won't agree.
My friends/family will think I'm crazy.
I won't be able to do it perfectly. I'm not so good at it.
Look, here's the bottom line. You have no idea what will happen if you manifest your ideas and call the forth. You can't know the lessons that you will learn, the people you will attract, alienate, piss off or laugh with, you have no idea what kind of personal development is in store for you.
You don't know how it will go.
So if you judge your idea as not worth pursuing before you even explore it fully, you've closed the door. Locked it. Thrown away the key. Is that what you want?
It really doesn't have to be that complicated if we lay to the side our self doubts. And if we stop judging how we're going to be judged for going after our idea.
Often we don't manifest ideas into action because of judgment. Not strictly the fear of how others will think about us, but the fear of how we will react to people judging us. Our judgment of judgment. What we think of what people think of us.
Because judgment will always be there.
It's what we do with judgment that will determine our path.
It's that inner voice that keeps us locked in place, that convinces us the risks are too great, we aren't that good, we don't have a chance, we won't follow through, we just shouldn't bother.
We need to shut her up, that inner voice, because she's so busy judging the judgment of others that she couldn't care less about our authentic selves.
We are the shamans of our own energy, the creators of our own light. We ourselves determine the doors that open for us.
How do we start? How can we open our hearts and minds to our best idea?
Wendi is a magical doctor/artist of authenticity, a magnetic energy medium, a colorful, authentic beauty who has reinvented not only her path, but the paths of women everywhere. Here's what she has to say about this very subject.
I'm working with several women on bringing their idea to cohesive fruition. I am absolutely and whole heartedly committed to this work. Do you have an idea you'd like to develop but don't quite know where to start? I'm here to help you do your best work.
I cannot believe that Di Mackey and my Your Beautiful Truth Retreat is less than three weeks away! Energy will be flying on our little hill in the Italian country side.
And last but not least, I'm scheming with my beautiful friend Barrie Davenport on a new course and on-line workshop about this very subject - calling forth your creative idea and manifesting it into your work. The launch will be spring 2014.
So now it's over to you:
What would you do if you weren't worried about being judged? What is your idea? If you felt free from your inner Edna, as Wendi calls her, what would you do?
