“To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did”

Hello, Dear Readers. In my very first blog, ever, I am here to tell you just how fast the Universe/Spirit Guides/Holy Spirit can move in your life, as they are today moving in mine. This morning I received the above quote via email from a friend in Florida. Immediately struck by its wisdom and sage advice, I noticed that the quote is really the flip side of “if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always had”. Making a mental note to (at some point) implement this timely advice, I drove to my friend’s house to work on my website. Little did I know that my Guides meant the advice for me, right here and right now. The website was beginning to be fleshed out, with actual information under the headings, but no blogs, as of yet. As my friend talked about connecting my website to Facebook and Twitter and encouraging the purchase of a Blackberry for my tweets and blogs, an entirely new and different lifestyle flashed before me. From past experience, I recognized the work of my Guides and knew that this is the correct path. But, but, but–it’s entirely out of my comfort zone!

Here’s an example of what I mean. Most of us have dreamed about a vacation to Hawaii, with its blue waters and languid breezes. What if somebody knocked on your door just now and offered you free tickets to Hawaii for a two-weeks-all-expenses-paid trip; the only catch is that you must leave immediately. How many of us would hem and haw, thinking about all the things we have to do to get ready: feed the cat, stop the mail, notify place of work, and so on? I would wager that most of us would not be able to leave immediately and thus would miss out on the dream trip of a lifetime, all expenses paid. That’s how things work when your Guides/Universe/Holy Spirit puts opportunity in front of you. Things move faster than the speed of light, and it will change your life.

So, ironically, although I had imagined and wished for the past two years for just such an opportunity as is before me now, I’m waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone. In fact, I’m in one galaxy and my comfort zone is in the galaxy just one over. This morning I had committed myself to the idea that “to get something you never had, you have to do something you never did”. This afternoon the Universe obliged me by presenting me with tools and ideas to rock my world. Of course, I will follow this guidance because my past experience tells me that my comfort zone will adjust. I also know from past experience that to choose to not follow this clear guidance will hamper my growth and give me cause for regret.

Try this at home only when you can clearly differentiate between true guidance and your own inner wishes and desires, otherwise you are courting disaster. For those of you who are able to differentiate between true Spirit and your own ego, let’s all take a quantum leap off the mountain, trusting that our comfort zones will catch up with us.
