We may have big visions for our future … but sometimes, our plans to get there are simply too small. If we stick to both our big vision and our small plan, we inevitably find ourselves in struggle.Â The two simply don’t go together.Â Taking action is like pulling teeth.Â Nothing flows easily.
If we’re lucky, we have a lightbulb moment and allow our plans to get bigger.
I just experienced the big vision/small plan struggle for myself.Â I have very big visions for my business.Â I also had a plan to create an audio program called “Sacred Money.” My work lately has quite naturally become focused on financial abundance for spiritual seekers, healers and transformational professionals.Â I was very convinced that this audio program would be a great idea … but somehow, it just would not allow itself to be written.
I procrastinated.Â I delayed.Â Both are very unusual for me.Â I finally got myself pinned down under my laptop to write, only to find myself squirming.Â After another two days of discomfort and unmotivated writing, it hit me like a ton of bricks.Â The information was flowing, but the format was not.Â And it dawned on me that this was not an audio program … apparently, I was writing a book.
Oh, dear.Â THIS was not my PLAN!Â (Meanwhile picture my Spirit Guides jumping down enthusiastically, because I’m finally on board with my own big vision.)
I love writing … but writing a book?Â Never mind the time and effort that goes into actually marketing a book!Â Did I mention this was NOT my PLAN?Â TO calm down, I called a few friends and complained that I was, apparently, writing a book! Then I sat down, took a deep breath, and emailed the most accomplished book-marketing guru I know (who, incidentally, charges $6K for his consulting sessions … but if I’m going to do this, I’m going to DO THIS).
I found myself telling my Guide team, out loud in the middle of my office: “Okay.Â I’m going to say ‘Yes’ to this.Â I’m in.Â Let’s go big.”Â Then a big wave of indescribable something wooshed over me, and I burst into tears.Â I always know that I’m deeply connected to Spirit when I start crying.
Needless to say, everything I had planned for my business changed in an instant … and of course, it all makes so much more sense now.Â The pieces that wouldn’t quite fit together now align.Â Forward movement is suddenly so easy, it’s almost effortless.Â And did I mention that, not even a minute later, I was blessed with a new mentoring client?Â Like a reassuring hug from the Universe, telling me that big is definitely the way to go.
If you’re stuck, maybe your plans are too small for your vision.Â What if you went really, really big?Â Would everything perhaps come together so much more easily?Â Maybe you’re ready for more than you think!
