At 5:15 this morning while White Eagle was still sleeping, I tiptoed (as much as one can tiptoe in a trailer) to the kitchen to make a coffee and enjoy some morning ME time. For my sanity, and well let’s be honest, the preservation of others.
I reached into the cabinet to pull out a mug, after hitting the others of course…
Sidebar: why is it when you’re trying to be quiet you’re
I N S A N E L Y L O U D?!
This mug is one of two of my favourite things with the word Believe and both were dollar store finds! Double bonus! This mug and I have had many mornings together. Mornings of quiet contemplation, reflection, decisions made, questions answered, feelings felt. I have shed almost more tears over the power of the statement on this mug, than I have watching Grey’s Anatomy.
As I stood there this morning, mug in hand, I looked down at my arm, and realized how often we are asked “how” we created a life we love.
I can hear the conversations, and they often go something like this…
Heather, how did you create this though? How did your life evolve to where you wanted it?
I manifested it.
No seriously how did you do it? Did you win the lottery?
Okay come on, be serious, don’t give me this airy fairy, fluffy, positivity stuff. Tell me how you called in all the things that you are always glowing about?
Let me show you something. I rise my arm and show my Unicorn tattoo, and I say, It’s about…. Believing. When you choose to believe, then, and only then does it happen. Yes that’s right when I hit 35, I decided to start believing in Unicorns. So much so that a million little needle marks made it permanent on my arm.
Other person: Okay fine. I know.. but.
The first place to start is dropping the phrase “I know but..”
I know but. The greatest line ever to hold the energy of non-believe-ing.
Stop. Let that sink in for a minute.
You are actively NOT believing when you add ~ “I know but” to a sentence.
Where are you “I know but-ing” in your life?
As I stood there and this message came through to share, a song popped into my head. A song that was written and released 25 years ago. Something shook me, I felt sadness for all the people who don’t believe. Because I know what it’s like, to not. I too had what I call an “existence” before choosing to believe there was more, or better, or at least a certain level of “okay-ness” that I wasn’t experiencing yet.
I extracted a couple lines from Believe (’93) by Lenny Kravitz and Henry J. Hirsch.
If you want it you got to believe
Believe in yourself
‘Cause being free is just a state of mind
We’ll one day leave this all behind
Just put your faith in God (Creator/Universe/WhatSuitsYou/HigherPower) Hot tip
And one day you’ll see it
The future’s in our present hands this
Let’s reach right in
If you want it you’ve got to believe and this!
You see, I had to deeply commit to Believing. Now, every single day, multiple times a day, I am shown. I am given more evidence than I could ever ask for to help me keep going.
If you’ve made it this far, I thank you. I thank you for allowing me to share a piece of my heart with you. A piece of soul. A piece of our “Wow”.
Are you ready for more? Are you ready to surrender? Are you ready to embrace now? Are you ready to Rock Your Mud? Are you ready to Believe? Are you ready to consider just one little bit, that maybe if you gave Believing a fraction of the effort you put into not-believing, you may Design a Life You Love?
I invite anyone who feels called, to join my humble beautiful space, and a group of love filled, focused people here at Rock Your Mud I talk abundance, gratitude, healing, the down and dirty of the mud and life, to the sparkling shine of magic and wonder… and just so much more.
My mission is to help as many people as I can.
It’s time. It’s your time.
