“Get out and live your life fearlessly” is one of the messages that Anita Moorjani gained during her near death experience described in the incredible book Dying to be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing. When you release the limitations of your body and allow universal life force energy to flow through you, fear can disappear, and you can remember your magnificence. Doing this takes changing your point of reference to identify with being light. Sometimes it happens instantly like in Anita’s NDE, but usually it happens gradually. The process for me started accelerating eleven years ago. At that point, you would never have been able to convince me that I would start a healing center three years ago and buy a building to house it this year.
When I moved to Santa Rosa at the end of 2000, my mind was the primary driver of my actions. Even when I seemed guided to join the Toltec Wisdom Circle of Allan Hardman, I had to read the Four Agreements before I could convince myself to go. Up until now, one of my strongest memories of getting my mind out of my way and connecting to Source energy was when I decided to join Miguel Ruiz’s three year Toltec Dreaming program in 2002. I had not even considered it up before it came to me in meditation. I had no idea how I would manage to get one weekend/month off from my 6 year old son, how I would get there, or even if it was too late to apply. I just knew I had to be there. Three weeks later, I was. That changed my life forever.
Over the last ten years, there have been more and more instances of tuning into my inner knowing. The latest opportunity was a month ago when I chose to put in an offer on the building for sale across the street just one week after hearing about it. Over the week prior to being told it was for sale, it had seemed like I was being reminded of all of the ways that the current Songbird location was not working. I never imagined that buying a building would be the solution that presented itself. When it did, there was nothing I could do but say yes. I suspect I will look back on this time in the future and call it another life-changing moment.
If your life is not unfolding this effortlessly, check out the many Songbird offerings this month that can help that happen. The more you practice and the more support you have on your journey, the easier it gets. Eventually you learn to clearly tell the difference between the monkey mind and your inner knowing that allows everything to manifest quickly. In the words of don Miguel Ruiz, “If I can do it, you can too.”
