This week’s question comes from Dianne in NY.
“I am a serious “take action” kind of person. I get lost in my daily to-do list, and I’m driven by the goals I set for myself. Unfortunately, I’m not getting the results that I hope for day after day.
You write about living from the inside out, yet, I’m afraid if I resort to relying on doing my inner work, I’ll turn into a passive person who sits around waiting to take action and not achieve anything. Can you put my mind at ease?
Dianne, you are describing a fear that so many of my super-achieving students and clients have. You are also describing the consequences (lack of desired results) of being driven and taking action when you are not aligned with receiving what you really want.
Here’s the problem. You’re seeing this as an either/or scenario. Either you take action from a place of urgency and sheer will-power, while ignoring how you feel or what your gut is telling you, or you believe that if you do your inner work you won’t feel the urgency that often drives your actions. From this vantage point, you might be imagining that you’ll just be sitting around and passively waiting for something to happen.
In my experience, I can’t think of a more rigorous action to take than doing our inner work. There is nothing passive or inactive about transformation. To engage in our transformational process is a privilege and a responsibility that we human beings have over our animal friends. We arrive at a place in our growth when we must choose to either act out of our true nature or to act out of our limited, reactive, conditioned self.
The truth is, when you claim your identity as the Truth of who you are, and you align your inner beliefs and emotions with the desires that you really care about, you will be released from your fearful, protective patterns of survival that do not align with what you truly want. (Notice how I worded that.)
In doing your inner transformational work, you will dissolve your inner resistance to having what you want. I promise that you can’t help but take inspired action from your REAL power. You will be drawn to all of the people and the resources that you need to achieve your desired outcomes. You’ll no longer feel a sense of urgency, you won’t be pushy and manipulative, and you won’t be in judgment of yourself and others.
True alignment inspires and motivates right-action. When you feel confident and you experience an inner permission to have what you really want, there will be no separation between the inner work that you do and the inspired action that you will want to take. Your actions will produce the experience that you want in much less time and with much less effort.
Taking action when your “house is divided”, so to speak, i.e. part of you is in the basement and part of you is upstairs trying to live your life, is like trying to be creative, joyful and resourceful from within your own inner war zone. That’s hard and it keeps you in the war!
I trust that I have allayed your fears about valuing the inner work that your desires are calling you to do to begin with. You are being called back to identify with the truth of who you already are. This is not an exercise to fix something that is broke or wrong! It is a choice that we have been given the privilege to make. It is part of our spiritual evolution and growth.
Just remember, when it comes to doing things from logic and will power versus what you subconsciously believe, what you subconsciously believe will ALWAYS WIN OVER, hands down, every time!
This truth is why your quest is well worth making. I believe it is your soul’s desire to do so. It is a MUST if you want to live the life you were born to live and to be the grandest, prosperous YOU that is YOU!
My best to you for all of the peace, abundance, and joy that you deserve!
In love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
