I hope this newsletter finds you learning how to align with the magical unfolding and unlearning of the need to “hustle” in any area of life.
I believe that sometimes we have to be completely at a loss and broken down for true magic to happen – for us to “un-learn” the mind game of hustle. Sometimes the Universe needs us to be completely open and devoid of expectation in order to sneak in an expansive breakthrough in the final hour…
Surrender is the gateway to demonstrations of faith.
I learned the importance of surrendering one night in a hammock while sitting under an incredible star-filled sky in Sedona, Arizona. I had moved to Sedona with my family to study Human Design. We lived there for a few years, and it was pretty rough.
My marriage was falling apart. We were struggling financially. There were very few resources for children. Trying to raise a family of four young kids and hold true to my spiritual beliefs was indescribably stressful.
We blew through the money we had made from the sale of our house in Texas and were down to just $400. Our rent was due in two days, and we needed to somehow create $1000 just to get by.
I literally had NO CLUE what to do. I didn’t have a job. My business wasn’t really bringing in any money. I didn’t know where to go or how to pull a financial “rabbit” out of a hat.
I tucked the kids in that night and went outside to lie in the hammock. There are light pollution laws in Sedona and the inky night sky is just effervescent with stars. As I shifted my perspective and appreciated the expansiveness of the cosmos, I made a very subtle but vital inner shift. Something in me just surrendered the “problems” I was facing.
In reality, there wasn’t really anything else I could do but surrender. Surrendering led to alignment.
My brain was at an utter standstill, and I had no more energy to try to “figure out” my way through the challenge I was facing.
There was such peace in simply being in the moment under the stars. At that moment, I just completely let go of the problem and basically let my faith in some kind of resolution take command of the whole situation.
The next day I got a job offer to work at the Sedona Center for the New Age – as a psychic (That’s another story for another day!). Within 24 hours of working at the Center for the New Age, I made our rent, grocery money, and the rent for my new office.
It would NEVER have occurred to me to go get a job as a psychic. Never. Ever. Never.
But it ended up being one of the most interesting, rewarding, and expansive jobs I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t be doing what I do today without that experience.
I’m thinking about that moment because I am still in awe of the grace of that night under the stars. It was as if the Universe had to completely break me down to crack me open to receive.
I feel like we are all collectively going through a similar experience. We are being prepared to walk into the most unexpected circumstances only to discover that what is in front of us is exactly what we need to lay the foundation for our future.
We are heading towards the breaking point. (Some of you may already feel like you’re there…) This point we are moving towards is not really “breaking” us but cracking us open, setting the stage for a breakthrough, and showing us what is truly precious and valuable and worth fighting for – worth enduring and committing to.
Stay strong. And surrender. Relax into alignment.
Alignment is much more powerful than hustle. Alignment is sustainable, resilient, and creative. When we live in alignment with our Hearts, the next right steps for ourselves and for the fulfillment of our purpose reveal themselves.
Here’s to an expansive, aligned, and peaceful week!
