I have to start this with a bit of a back story. You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted a new article or sent a newsletter to you for the last few months. I secretly hope you at least kinda missed me, but if you didn’t well please don’t say anything and I’ll keep believing you did. 🙂
I have been in a personal expansion process the last few months that has consumed me. To keep this less than novel length I won’t share all the details. I’ll summarize by saying I have asked to live life fully, all in, fully engaged in divine magic every day! That doesn’t seem like a big request right?
I have spent 3 ½ years diligently attempting to build In Power Sisterhood and be of service to you. I have taken action on so many different things. I have created task lists, done projects, taken classes, hired consultants, and the list goes on and on. I have known since the idea of In Power Sisterhood came into the world that divine magic was at work and I can even site some miracles along the way. Something shifted back in May…in me and In Power Sisterhood. That shift was the Universe asking me to totally surrender to the divine plan.
I want to point out that while that might sound easy, it has been anything but that. You and I live in a world that conditions us to take action. When you want something done…take action. Sometimes you and I are even taught that it doesn’t matter what the action is as long as you are doing something, anything, just take action. A lot of the success I have experienced in my life has come from taking action and achieving results. While I have always believed in magic, I haven’t always fully lived it. Well 3 months ago the Universe decided without me…and I mean that, I definitely hadn’t bought into the decision yet…that it was time for In Power Sisterhood and me to live fully in divine magic.
I didn’t exactly know what was happening then but it felt like after 3+ years of nurturing and loving In Power Sisterhood, I didn’t have access to my baby. For 3 months I have wanted to write to you and yet I couldn’t. I wanted to reach out to you and yet I couldn’t. For 3 months I had to practice surrender. Just so you know surrender and I have had an on again, off again relationship but I have never committed to going steady. That is until 3 months ago when the Universe set us up and didn’t give me a choice in the matter. It was kinda like a forced blind date. For 3 months I have been learning to surrender. I have been fighting the incredible urge to take action. I have been fighting to not give in to people around me who said, “you have to take action…what are you waiting for?” My response has been, “I’m waiting for the next step from the Universe” which has been met many times with “What?”, rolling eyes and usually a big sigh. And then me secretly questioning from time to time if I really wanted to go steady with surrender. I could do something …anything would make more sense than just staying with surrender and waiting and waiting and…
I believe I’m finally in a serious committed relationship with surrender because in the last week things have started to shift…and here I am writing to you. Woohoo for that! Whether you missed me or not, I really missed you! J Two days ago I asked for some divine support. I asked what exactly I needed to do to fully commit to surrender so I can fully live divine magic. I’m finally ready to not just go steady with surrender but to enter into a lifelong commitment with it. Tonight some sacred sister’s helped me set the container and let in the magic to get my answer.
Once a month I bring together a lovely group of women on an In Power Sisterhood call. During the call we come together in sisterhood. There’s growing, expanding, holding and supporting each other and most importantly, there’s always divine magic! Tonight’s call was no exception, there was magic, magic and more magic. After the call I was at my computer attempting to download the recording of our call. When I attempted to type on my keyboard nothing happened. There was no error message, there was no noise, there was nothing I could see wrong with my keyboard or anything else unusual, just no response. So to troubleshoot I opened Word, thinking I would see if I could type there. A magical message disguised as an error message popped up on my screen that said “You are holding down the control key. Do you want to open Word in safe mode?” I sat staring at my screen, then my keyboard, then back to my screen thinking to myself…seriously. Then I burst into laughter…out loud, LMBO kinda laughter. 2 days ago I asked and today the Universe told me. “If you hold down the control key you can only experience safe mode.” And my heart heard, if you want to live fully in the magic, get into a long term committed relationship with surrender and let the divine magic show you the action to take! I don’t know where this is going to take me, or you or us but I can’t wait to find out!
