It Can Only Exist If You Choose It

January 19, 2016

One of my intuitive gifts has always been seeing possibility. As we talk and I tune into your heart, I see what’s possible for you. And it’s beautiful… so incredibly beautiful. I see you in the life that’s waiting for you, living fully expressed and true to yourself, doing the work you so deeply desire to do (even if you think you don’t know what that is). It’s clear as day to me and I get so excited.

In that moment though, it’s all just possibility.

It can only exist if you choose it.

About six years ago I had what can only be described as an out of body experience. I was living in Hawaii and had been driving around the island all night, crying my eyes out. Parked at a scenic overlook (my most favorite spot on the island), I was trying desperately to catch my breath as I sobbed uncontrollably.

Until all of a sudden, I just stopped.

I felt calm, at peace, and completely out of my body. I was aware that part of me was still sitting in the car by the ocean, but it was as if my soul had ventured out amongst the stars. And as a piece of me danced with the cosmos, I felt total alignment and pure joy. I was completely clear on the truth of who I was here to be, experiencing this pulse of creative energy, divine connection, beauty, grace, and purpose. I had never experienced anything like it in my life.

Back in the car I held my physical body very still so I could take it all in. And I continued to hold onto that experience as tightly as I could. When things would get hard, I would close my eyes and try to reconnect with that essence so I could remember what feeling in alignment was like. It drove me forward, and it turned into a guidepost for every experience, relationship, and decision I made.

That night at the overlook, I connected to what was possible for me.

But more importantly, I chose it, with every cell in my body.

For three years I continued to choose it. I continued to tune back into the truth and essence of that experience and worked to create shifts that would align me with what I saw as possible. And eventually, I began to feel this energy and essence every single day, as I began to embody exactly what I experienced that night.

After settling into this space of alignment, I had another (far less dramatic) experience that was similar. Out of nowhere, I connected with truth and possibility on an even deeper level. I had another clear vision of what it would look like to embody this truth as well as a clear connection to the energy and essence. And just like the first one, this experience served as a guidepost as I moved forward.

This connection to my potential and all that’s possible in my life and work has continued to happen as I grow and change over the years. And it also happens with every single person that enters my sphere. Clients, friends, family, partners.

Greatness, contribution, love, depth, connection, passion, purpose, fulfillment, and joy. This is all possible for you. Incredibly possible, in ways you can’t even imagine right now. Give me just five minutes with you and I will see it so clearly, so aligned with the truth of who you are and the unique gifts you have to give.

And I will get excited.
Which will get you excited.
But that’s not enough.

It’s not enough to know what’s possible and to get excited by the idea of it. It’s not enough to see how everything could play out, to feel it inside every cell of your body, in the depths of your heart and soul.

Possibility is not a promise, it’s a call to action.

A call to rise up and walk the path you’re meant to walk.

And it can only exist if you choose it.

I’m not going to tell you choosing it is easy, because it’s not. Oftentimes, it’s some of the hardest work you’ll ever do. The most heart wrenching, exhausting, and terrifying work. It’s scary. It’s isolating at times. It’s confusing. You’ll inevitably get a little lost along the way. It’s painful. And it requires a lot of long naps.

But there’s no pill or magic carpet that takes you from here to there as quickly as you can envision all that’s possible. There’s just not. You have to choose it. Every moment of every day, no matter what. You have to choose it. 

And I know how frustrating it is to hear that, because choosing it might feel like a lot of work from where you stand right now. I know because I’m also in the process of fully choosing what’s next for me, in life and love and the ways I feel called to work and serve. And it’s hard. Really, really hard. But I know from all the times I’ve chosen my potential and possibility, it’s the only way to bring it to life.
