Lots of time I talk about following your heart and not your head. But I'll be honest - that's just step ONE. See yes, we need to listen to our hearts, lead with love, do all the intuitive pieces in life that we are called to do. BE divinely guided.
And then there's a balance that comes into play, where our hearts can guide our brains to use the things we know and have learned and can figure out. The how does matter, just not at first.
I'm going to build my community...how? Doesn't matter right now. Right now I'm going to get in alignment with the community building piece. Who would feel good to hang out with? What would our conversations look like? What's my dream way of being with my community?
Listen to those answers. It'll be really clear what you're being guided to DO. Then your brain gets to engage and create exactly what your heart desired. I hear 'start a new group on FB' and my brain gets to set up the group, choose the name, write the description, add the cover picture, invite people in.
And then...it gets to step out again and allow the harvest to grow. I get to just play and welcome people in and I get to show up.
It's a dance - between the heart and the head and the Universe. It takes the balance of it all to create our lives. I do not underestimate the power of a sharp mind, only the unbalanced force and push of an overly active one. When I pay attention to the dance instead of making one right and the other wrong then I'm able to stay in step and rhythm. Take the lead and surrender...
Where are you in the dance right now?
Where can you feel you can become your own best dance partner?
Where are both sides struggling to lead, making the dance difficult and awkward?
