I was just in a wonderful conversation with my friend Linda Joy yesterday, and she asked: When can we know we are in our zone of magic and wonder, or we’re not? (Sorry if I can’t remember your exact words Linda; I think the gist of it is there.)
It’s not complicated at all.
The basic formula is simple. If what I’m doing feels good, and if it comes from love, I am in my heart-space. When I am in that space, magic happens. I am inspired, I am having fun (yes, we really CAN have fun when working!), and things flow with ease and grace.
When I’m in my head-space, I am trying to “figure things out”. That NEVER works for me. I don’t know about you.
Is “working hard” the best way?
When we strive to “work hard” and close off our hearts, we tend to work from a place of lack, limitation and fear. And if we want to attract more positive things into our lives like success, joy, freedom, fun, etc.….Needless to say, that isn’t the way to do it.
When work doesn’t feel good, it’s tough to get the results we want. I have literally gotten headaches from staying stuck in my head and closing off my heart.
A new way to work
It has taken YEARS (decades, really) to shift gears from the old programming of “working hard”—as if there is some medal or reward to be earned from that—to a new mode of work. A place where I am getting stuff done, yet it is fun and joyful. As a heart-centered entrepreneur, I am grateful to know that and claim it. When we are heart-centered and learn to operate from this heart-space mode, the most amazing things happen.
Events unfold with so much love and light. Opportunities come along to grow business-wise and personally. I have met the most amazing, loving, kind people in this way, and my business literally flows with ease and grace.
There is always a choice. Which path do you choose?
