We AMPed things up big time this week with our first AMP call diving right in to how to take your meditation practice into your job, career, and what you do space. We spoke specifically about how to use the meditation techniques we teach to amplify your success, connect to your passion, and, in general, make the day-to-day jobs we all have full of fun and ease versus stress and strife.
We played with creating and destroying, grounding, and connecting to your true energetic vibration. The call was a blast (if you missed it, you can join us for the next one and get the recorded call when you sign up).
All this career, job, and what we do talk got us thinking...a lot...about what we do and what we are doing. It also got us noticing what other people are doing and how they are doing it.
Overall Conclusion: there are a lot of amazing people (you being one of them) in the world doing a lot of magnificent things.
I got to take a walk with my youngest child this week. He being all about trucks and all things construction, we naturally walked toward the big trucks digging up the road at the end of our street. We both sat mesmerized, he by the big diggers and dump trucks, me by the ease in which the gentlemen navigated the entire situation. To me a big whole in the ground, enormous trucks, and huge cement pipes add up to a recipe for disaster. To them, another day at the office.
Later in the week, I had a challenging morning (yes, I used ALL of my meditation techniques to get through a rough morning - you know the ones, children crying, everyone late, no food in the house - and I had a mini-melt down that included putting myself in a time out. What can I say? I'm human), I decided to get an iced coffee. Not something I do every day, however, that morning seemed to require it.
I noticed in my purchase the individual serving me my coffee. She was delightful, gentle, kind, personable, happy. I realized in getting the coffee, it wasn't about the coffee at all, it was about witnessing this woman in action. She had a beautiful spirit and knew she was doing more than serving coffee. She was offering a healing with each cup.
Life constantly amazes me like that. Incredible people showing up everyday, in their lives, in their work, being present, and having it. Doing awesome and awe-inspiring things seemingly effortlessly because it lines up with their truth, it matches their energy and what they are creating.
When we find ourselves struggling or feel lost, we can temporarily forget that those things exist - that it is easy to have your truth and work from a place of ease and joy (we all did it at one point, just picture the toddler running around laughing). If that is not how you are moving through your days now, take a step back, hit the pause button, and give yourself a moment to evaluate what you are doing, creating, and cultivating. Use meditation, connect to your higher source, call in Spirit, and let yourself be amazed at, well, you.
I've had some pretty typical "jobs" in my life. I've worked in small offices, big offices, theaters, stores. I've been an at-home parent, a costume designer, a home-schooling mom, a Sunday-school teacher, and now I'm a...what? A blogger? A spirit junkie? A meditation teacher? A being coach? Actually, I may just go with the title Psychic Lightening Bolt - it sounds cool, right?
I've held a few jobs while I've been figuring out what I want to be when I grow up (which is when, exactly?), and I've been a little sensitive to that lately. You see, I'm at a point in my life where 1) I thought I'd have it pretty much figured out, and B) it would be quite convenient and comfortable to have it all figured out.
Well, I don't. And I've blown up the picture that I need to.
*cue angelic chorus*
I'm just going to keep doing things, following the energy and partnering with the Universe to co-create stuff, and see what comes of it. And if the title on my business card gets too wordy, there's always a lightening bolt.
I'll leave you with this. Does it light you up or give you hives?
“Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it - that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing - an actor, a writer - I am a person who does things - I write, I act - and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.”
― Stephen Fry
