What measures your success – A big house, fame or following your desire?
Success is more than an idea or action, our beings are wired for success. Yet many get caught in chasing the trappings not the joy.
Sparkly items masquerade as success but the truth is you are driven by the song of your soul. Success asks you to name what you seek, and pursue it. There is no shame in desire, practice or failure, throw in a slight willingness to be vulnerable and different and suddenly the world is more generous. The outskirts of what you know is uncomfortable and exciting, yes and if you want to feast on the juicy berries you must risk thorns and bramble. Adventures & rewards don’t happen while you snooze on the couch.
Passion and determination manifest personal success, while pursuing ‘trappings’ or the illusion of success can become a prison.
Success asks us to act, to experience the process. This is no wallflower activity, you must invite your desire to dance. A child learns to walk because they are driven to be uprightly mobile. That obstacle course includes a series of steps: try, fail, rest and do it again, till they walk with ease.
Mastering a skill allows you the freedom to run and skip. Doing what fascinates and practicing till you jump the next hurdle. No athlete is an instant medalist, it takes hours of grueling practice and focusing on the goal to achieve the gold.
The numeric vibration of success equals 17/8 reminding you, that what you place your energy on, in this quest for success will leave a lasting impact. The number eight is the symbol of infinity, what goes around, comes around. Manifesting wealth requires self ownership and leading by example. The willingness to do what it takes, even if that means doing something over and over till it comes naturally as breathing. The key is to practice without worrying about the outcome, by focusing on the experience.
It is true that mental and emotional blocks can impede your progress, sometimes that includes hiding passion behind a wall of bland. Fear is a reminder that stuff is in the way. Something unknown or new needs to be looked at closely and dealt with. Personally I have found these past few months incredibly trying and fearful and yet every action has created a greater ease, self awareness and clarity.
Somedays I just vegetate, and that is ok. I need time to process my fear, and if I get crazy and beat myself up for being afraid, it makes it worse, because then I am focusing on the fear instead of what I want to do. I discovered that only way through the fear is like learning to walk. Try small steps, fall, rest and then up again onward to the next milestone or fall. I am driven to speak my truth and push beyond comfortable, because it is actually fun, rewarding, and very freeing once I get through the icky sticky part. I spent too long waiting for my prince to come. Someone else was going to save me from my misery, poverty and lack of power.
Lol. yeah. Right. Well, after I got over that illusion of the supposed to happen fairytale, I discovered that fear is not the enemy. I was standing in waiting for permission to declare and fight for my dream. No one else can give you permission, you just have to take it.
You get to chose your experience. No matter what, you have to evolve. Being born means you grow, age and die. Bodies continually change, as do minds. You can sit in that and resist, refusing to budge, you get sucked into more of the same. Choose or have your fate decided. Whatever your chosen role hardly matters if you are not fired up to do something, to succeed at some goal, giving meaning and metamorphosis to your days. You came here for a reason, maybe today is a good day to get started on uncovering that reason.
You may worry about not having enough money, being overpowered or getting it wrong. The mind can take you into those places. Yet the number 17/8 reminds you that success happens through doing. That energy you engage in fires up the alchemic structure of ‘successing’ – practicing what feels inspired and grounded. Your individual ideas and determination. coupled with learning and honing your intuition. Whatever you create must be born of self in joy and balance spiritual and material in order to succeed.
Feeling a sense of accomplishment in the measured steps to the castle of success, which allows me to push through my own fear and see myself evolve, making me rich beyond measure. What can you do light your alchemic sense of success?
Take the time to get to know the song of your soul.
Take your power back, slowly and surely by practicing expressing your voice in whatever way speaks to you.
“Be not the slave of your own past – plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep, and swim far, so you shall come back with new self-respect, with new power, and with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
