It makes no logical sense to me anymore!
Nothing does, really!
My client asked me yesterday where I get my inspiration from
A book you are reading, or what you’re experiencing perhaps?
Well, yes, kind of.
But also really not at all.
Because ‘those things’, the automatic way we try to link our brain to the rational
The way we look for something to hold on to as a reason for WHY we feel or act or think in such a way
Do not and could never! explain ‘the other’ things!
Like how all FOUR of my client calls yesterday revolved around different versions of the EXACT same question
Or how I know what the underlying question is
Before I even get on the call!
It doesn’t LOGICALLY explain how you just meet someone and instantly have that feeling you’ve known eachother your entire life
LOGIC doesn’t explain how my exact villa came to me in Cyprus in the image of a magazine and the pages of my journal first and then we end up living in pretty much that exact villa
Or how the chateau had every single feature I journaled on
Or like those times when you just know something was going to happen,like I knew very specifically who would be attending my intensive retreat in Cyprus this August!
Or like my client who has launched two retreats of her own this year, and the second one sold out in a heartbeat, the most luxurious and expensive of the two, yet the first was SUCH an uphill struggle for her to even promote, I mean, logically, how does that even happen!? Success is success, surely, and it just wouldn’t make ANY logical sense that one would sell out and not the other?
Unless of course said client also REALLY wanted a luxury vacation in an incredible villa with her husband
And said, just kind of half jokingly but not really ‘oh! this could be the backup plan!’ BEFORE she ever even started selling the thing
FUNNY THEN, of course, actually, some might say! That the retreat didn’t sell DESPITE it not being ‘logical’, despite us having planned exactly how she ‘could’ sell it, ‘funny’ then she got that dream, entirely luxurious vacation with her husband 😉
What a coincidence!
Just like the client I released around a month ago who also happened to be booked on to one of my summer retreats,
And I DID for a moment feel hesitation around it, that it would screw all the ‘plans’ and I’d be ‘losing’ somehow, because she had been a great long term client overall just the energy was shifting and expanding, for me anyway!
so it was kind of gutting to say goodbye BUT
Had to trust!
And then of course, how ‘strange’ that a few short days later in walked a client who is DEFINITELY, 100% aligned, she is already upleveling so hard and fast she has already shifted her entire brand, offers, and clients in the few short weeks we have been together AND made high end sales AND of course booked right on to my summer retreat In Cyprus!
What a coincidence that she came along right when she did
Maybe there is some logical explanation for all of these things
Has nothing to do with it.
And you know
You can sit and figure out why ‘logically’
You should fill your spots
Be fully booked
Earn a ton of money
Or get on that podcast or summit
Go to that thing
Quit that other thing
Walk away from X
Gain inspiration from THIS or THAT place
And your brain will drive you insane as you try to rationalise and process it all LOGICALLY
How to do X
Whether to do X
What your feelings are about which then equals Y
All you like
But what if…
had absolutely ZERO to do with any of it?
LOGIC was a man-made construct
An elaborate dance, if you like
Choreographed by the men laughing at the front
Because while you’re so busy figuring something out
Working out the workings! (my Mum ALWAYS had pieces of paper with ‘workings out’ scribbled all over them)!
What if instead of
Dancing the dance
Energy, time and motivation reduced to ‘working it out’
Maybe instead you just trusted entirely
In the things you cannot see?
But of course.
Too big a concept for our puny human brain to comprehend
Better go back to… well, working it out!
How can you reach a destination, without a plan?
It just wouldn’t be logical!
How dare you do something as basic as
Trusting your gut
Following your instinct
Flying by the seat of your pants, full tilt
Into the winds of exhilaration!?
Wouldn’t that be utterly careless and irresponsible?!
Says the orchestra
And you dance then
To their hypnotic tune
Convincing yourself the whole time
Surely things HAVE to be logical, to make sense, to be more, well
Don’t they play their song well, you marvel,
THEIR plan executed so perfectly well
detaching you from the wildness of you
So you perform your pretty, polished steps so neatly, giving you the merest hint of the illusion of freedom.
SURE! Choose your business
Choose your life
Choose motivational quotes!
But don’t ever dare listen to
The wild calling of your soul
Because that just wouldn’t be logical, would it?!
How could you ever build a business or life
Based on trust
Moving quickly, huntress, changing so fast they can’t keep up?
To do so would be utterly reckless abandonment of their ways
Their likes and shares, wouldn’t it?
Of all the rules, they told you to play by?
Be careful! don’t climb too high! as if your instinct could never serve you alone –
Better go back to logic then.
Isn’t that what got you to where you are?
Unless of course
You look around and see
Hands bunched into fists
LOGICAL version of you
Isn’t in fact, the version of you that you want
To keep descending into, after all.
YOU starts to sound a little tempting now!
And where to begin?
Trust your gut
Believe in the unseen and miracles daily
Release the plan and the list and the
LOGIC of it all
Because magic is simply NOT logical.
And you, are a magical, inexplicable, being.
of course –
This post was inspired by the book which I sat reading in a little sun-decked cafe this morning, Bringers of the dawn – teachings from the Pleiadians –
You’ll know now that really
It had nothing whatsoever to do with it 🙂
Dance your dance, or theirs.
