…Sometimes you are simply given the gift of understanding that energy may generate itself, and you are just along for the ride.
As one thing after another came into my life recently, I was beginning to question whether or not I could say “No” and if I was somehow intentionally overbooking myself for reasons hidden to me.
One of the obligations I had agreed to was a 45 minute talk to women in the community about the power of the female body. When, initially, I had said “Yes” I had no additional work commitments and believed I would have plenty of time to create the talk.
As one thing after another came up, the time to think about the talk, let alone prepare it, was pushed further and further away. I wondered if I had made a mistake. I could not give it the attention, nor did I have the time to publicize and support that talk that I felt it required.
Then, a friend called and left a message in my office. We usually walk together and I had assumed that is why she called and I never checked the message. Several days later, she phoned about going for a walk and mentioned her earlier message.
On the message she had said that while at work at the hospital (she is a nurse) she had heard about my talk from someone there. What? I didn’t know anyone even knew about my talk, as I had not put out any flyers or anything.
She told me that everyone was excited and she wanted to know if I had any flyers made so she could hand them out.
Like the art work shows above, I realized I did not have to do it “all”. With no input from me, other than my agreement to give the talk, the energy surrounding the event was supporting itself.
Sometimes we have to generate our own energy, and sometimes we do not. Momentum is a gift of being aligned with your highest principles.
Sometimes our light is the flame of life, at other times, it is the spark that ignites it all.
