Do you ever find yourself making things harder than they need to be?
Or doubt any form of abundance when it arrives easily?
My default setting is to make things hard. Even though I have done a sh*t ton of work on this programming I still do it (make things hard.)
For 5 months, I have had the goal of hiring a full time content manager for our business. My guides have affirmed I need to do this. My intuition has confirmed this is true. It is what I know is the next step in growing my platform. And yet that goal has remained just that – a goal on paper with no plan and no forward motion.
This was because every time I thought about moving forward I made it hard in my mind. And that stopped me in my tracks.
Until last week when my Online Business Manager, Josie, said to me “Patty, we need a better social media plan!” And I said, “You are so right! Can you help?” And she dropped into her zone of genius and created the most magnificent content repurposing plan. That is when I confided in her for the first time about my goal of us hiring a full-time content manager. She was thrilled, got to work and within 7 days (while I frolicked with my kids at the Jersey Shore) she had interviewed 10 candidates and already had a shortlist of ideal people.
Have I ever told you how much I love her? Josie helps me keep the wheels on the bus in so many ways. When I envisioned this content manager the obvious answer to moving forward would have been to just hand the whole mess of ideas over to her but I didn’t.
I kept making up things I’d need to do before I handed it over to her. Even though all those things I thought I had to do are really more of Josie’s zone of genius. Somewhere inside me, I believed it just couldn’t be as easy as handing it off to Josie.
Ever since my dad passed…
Ever since my dad passed I have noticed that a bunch of things have gotten easier. Roadblocks seem to disappear. I know he is helping me in this way. He may have given Josie the nudge to get me going. He has certainly been around me and very present.
I can feel his love everywhere. The signs he sends are prolific. In fact, the ease I’m experiencing and level of support I feel from Josie, my dad and all the beings around me is leading me to …
Doubt that it’s real.
Me the preacher of the light and love and building support teams and outsourcing is doubting all the goodness that is coming to me. Because it is coming so easily.
I’m doing the inner work to clear this, to anchor myself in the present moment so I can appreciate how blessed I am. But it’s a process.
I’m sharing this with you because I want you to know that if you have the habit of making things hard or doubting when they are easy I can tell you that you are not alone.
I have made quantum leaps in the goodness I let in these days and it’s still a process. If you’d like to start this process for yourself here is what I recommend…
Bring consciousness to your habit of making things hard/ doubting the ease.
The Divine and many other beings (both here and on the other side of the veil are waiting to help you if you just let them.) Start with consciousness and then ask for help releasing this pattern of making things hard.
If you do these two simple steps I promise magic will start to happen… in ways you will hardly. Believe 😉
In love and light,
