In the end, it comes down to one thing.
When we get past the usual scapegoats like the economy, the rancorous divorce, being “bad” with money, the real reason many of us struggle to make money doing what we love is because we don’t feel like we deserve it.
It comes down to one thing—feeling worthy. Feeling good about ourselves.
For me, that created a conundrum.
On the one hand, I longed for more money because I believed that having it would make me feel better about myself.
On the other hand, I needed to feel better about myself in order to be able to receive any money or opportunities to create money.
Welcome to my special conundrum cul-de-sac in hell. Can you see me going round and round without finding the exit?
All my life, I’ve battled the gremlins that told me I wasn’t enough, didn’t have what it takes.
Battles lost in spite of more college degrees, straight A’s and more certifications. Making more money and collecting great art. Marrying a great man.
None of that helped me win the game of self esteem.
None of the things I craved made me feel better about myself. And feeling bad about myself just delayed my progress towards what I wanted.
Until the part of me that craved growth and expansion and dance and exploration and honoring the creative spark insisted that I get over myself and try something new.
I can’t say that I know what made me listen except that I was just tired of feeling bad all the time.
Oh, and then I got a message from my soul…skies parting, angels singing, all that.
And this is the thing I want to share with you.
If I couldn’t share anything else but this for the rest of my life, this is the thing I’d want you to know. The thing that flipped the switch on my self esteem issues. And on my ability to manifest and appreciate good things in my life.
The real secret is this:
Your soul chose you.
No one else would do but you.
It has a plan, your soul. And it needs you to help fulfill that plan. When it needs to speak, it speaks through your voice. When it needs to see, it sees through your eyes. When it needs to hear, it listens through your ears.
Your soul connects you to the Divine.
So, you are the voice and the eyes and the ears of the Divine.
And the Divine chose you. Your soul chose you.
Everything about you is perfect and necessary for your soul to complete what it needs to complete for this round of its growth and its evolution.
Your body is perfect. Your nose is just right. Your parents and your children…deeply necessary for you. The way you love, the way you move, the things you create in the world. All exactly what your soul needed to grow.
Your soul chose YOU!
And it’s brimming with love and admiration for you. Its cheering you on 24/7. It’s ecstatic to have every single experience it gets to have through you. Even the hard ones. Even the ones that make you tremble. They are all just what it needs.
You are exactly the person the Divine needs to grow and learn and play and love and experience this wonderful and abundant planet. It needs you to be exactly who you are.
The Divine wouldn’t change a thing about you.
Not. One. Thing.
Big hugs from my soul to yours.
