Leaps of Faith Overrated?
Sometimes that inspires us to consider wild “leaps of faith,” trusting that the net will appear when we manage our energy and truly believe in a happy ending.
It might look like quitting a job before we have another gig lined up. Or buying a new house before the old one’s sold. For some it might be investing our life savings in a pet project we hope will yield a return.
As a rising Capricorn, I tend to prefer the sure-footed path.
In fact, when I quit corporate world to start my own business I hung a beautiful painting of a goat leaping over a huge chasm to remind me that goats are good at this risk-taking stuff.
But I wish I’d heard Abraham’s words on this topic back then.
On the June 2011 Alaska cruise they advised a woman who felt the rug getting pulled out from under her in lots of ways -losing her home, her marriage, her job – but still trusting it a sign she was meant to move forward with new work as a healer.
Yet, the new clients weren’t showing up. So the old stuff is on its way out, but there’s not a good whiff of the new stuff yet.
Anyone else might think this is time for a leap of faith. You’ve got to just trust the net will appear.
But Abraham said that when you do the work to get aligned (i.e. get in the vortex), and then follow the inspiration you receive there, it never feels like a struggle. It just feels like the next logical step.
Their suggested mantras and tips:
I believe the path will unfold before me. But I’m not going to push anything.
Don’t get in a hurry, and then things will happen quickly. Don’t try to make it happen and then it will happen effectively. Don’t try to micromanage it, and it will unfold just right.
If you’re feeling unstable in your transition, it just means you haven’t done your vortex work. And there’s no reason to have anything less than a stable transition.
Just slow it all down and say things to yourself like “I trust everything is always working out for me, and oh look – there’s evidence of it, and there’s evidence of it,” etc.
Where you’re going is a sure thing, so relax and have fun on your way to the sure thing.
Which just puts an even stronger spotlight on how important it is to feel good.
So if you’re in the middle of a major change, and nervous that the support or the clients or the money or whatever won’t be on the other side, this is your reminder to tend to your vibration.
Make a point of thinking thoughts that feel better and taking actions that feel good. We don’t have to suffer or struggle our way to success – in fact, that’s an impossible journey anyway.
Stable transitions don’t make great material for movies or docu-dramas, but if you’ve got enough drama in your world already, know that it’s your choice how you manifest your next big change.
