This month the word inspiration has been showing up in my life from all directions. The many places that it showed up was in a book title; a television commercial and as a topic from a radio show. And since I believe in synchronicities, I knew that the universe was trying to tell me something. Not only did it appear to me in these many ways, but I have been having an overload of inspiration in my own life. Inspiration showed itself to me in the form of ideas that I’ve had for years but never really gave it a second thought. When these ideas came to me they filled me with a great abundance of joy. Unlike before when I had an idea, a flood of uncertainty would over take me. I would just tune my inspiration out. But this time was much different because I felt connected to the source and totally on purpose. My creative juices were flowing and I was in a place of extremely high energy. This allowed me to see the many rich possibilities life has to offer.
Webster’s dictionary defines inspiration as, “a divine influence exerted directly on the mind and soul of a human being.” I believe that divine influence is the universal voice that we call God, Spirit, or Source. And that universe voice is telling us to remember who we are so we can move forward and live out our purpose. This voice whispers and sometimes screams to us that our present here on this planet has meaning. And this voice belongs to inspiration which is within all of us. Inspiration works much like the Law of Attraction, it responds to our most dominant thoughts and emotions. As we continue to focus on those thoughts and emotions, the universe begins to respond by sending the right people and resources to help us manifest our inspiration. Even though we may be unsure of our goals, inspiration is calling us to continue to move into the path of uncharted territory.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was asked about where his inspiration came from, and he commented, “When I am, as it were, completely myself, entirely alone, and of good cheer – say, traveling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I cannot sleep – it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how they come, I know not, nor can I force them.”
So what I’ve learned this month is to remove resistance and allow the energy of inspiration to freely flow through me; understanding that inspiration does not dwell on impossibilities of any kind. It does not focus on not being able to create or on things not working out. Nor does it expect the worst or create feelings of being stuck in one place. Inspiration reminds us to rise to the occasion and live in the abundant possibilities of life.
“The philosophy of six thousand years has not searched the chambers and magazines of the soul. In its experiments there has always remained, in the last analysis, a residuum it could not resolve. Man is a stream whose source is hidden. Our being is descending into us from we know not whence…I am constrained every moment to acknowledge a higher origin for events than the will I call mine.”
Your affirmation for the next 30 days is, “I choose to connect with my inspiration.”
