Taking Inspired Action
I was sitting at my computer working on a project. My mind drifted a bit asking myself, "Am I on the right path? What are my immediate next steps?"
Then I heard a voice telling me to turn around right now and I'd get my sign and clarity. I started to go back to my project.
"Turn around NOW," the voice said. This time much stronger,
"Okay, okay, I'll turn around," I thought.
Hmm, nothing. Then I looked down. There was a big wasp on my carpet. I gasped taken back. He managed to find his way out my open patio door. I immediately googled wasp totem. This is what I found.
When Wasp comes buzzing into your life:
You are being reminded that simply thinking about your dreams will not make them a reality as quickly as going out and doing it. Make a plan, keep working towards it and let nothing get in your way. Perseverance, desire and action are what is called for. Apply your passion to the reality you wish to achieve!
Alternatively Wasp is letting you know that resistance to change is by definition self sabotage. It’s time to allow yourself the notion that all things are possible, and that you deserve to have all your dreams come true. Be the best you can be!
I got my sign through the teaching of that wasp. A message for me that while visualizing my goals and dreams and writing them down is important, the action part is also needed.
I love the interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey with Comedian Jim Carrey on the power of visualization. A broke and depressed Carrey trying to make it in Hollywood wrote himself a check for $10 million for "acting services rendered," post-dated it 10 years and kept it in his wallet. The check remained there until it deteriorated but Carrey eventually made it: he earned millions for movies like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Dumb and Dumber.
Oprah said, "So visualization works if you work hard."
Jim Carrey responded, "Well yeah, that's the thing. You can't just visualize and then go eat a sandwich."
My blog is accounts of my observations, living life, lessons learned, seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary, the paintbrush and palette for inspiration. Hopefully it opens you up to new worlds and lets you know that you are not alone in this one.
