7 years ago, I made the decision to bless and give thanks for every meal I get to have. This simple habit has made a profound difference in my life. But recently, something weird has been happening… a voice has been answering back.
Just after saying, “Dear Creator, thank you so much for this food”, a voice inside my head immediately replies, “You’re welcome Gabriel, but remember it was you who worked to create the money, went to the shop, bought it, cleaned it and cooked it with love.”
I suppose this is my unique way of reminding myself what Grandmother (Abuela) Margarita, one of my favorite Mayan Elders reminded us when she said, “Whenever I want something, the first person I ask for it is myself.”
How often do we give our power away and act as beggars asking God, or the Universe for something that can easily be obtained if we just made the effort and committed wholeheartedly?
How many times have we sat on our assess and expected The Law of Attraction to do the work for us?
Byron Katie says that you could have anything in life you wanted if you were willing to ask 1,000 people for it. But before you ask anyone, first ask yourself for it. Demand it from yourself.
Recognize that you are way more powerful than you think. That within your heart there’s an intelligence and wisdom that knows the fastest, most effective and efficient way to accomplish your dreams and goals. It takes asking, and it takes listening.
A few years ago when I was feeling lost, and had forgotten how powerful and awesome I really am, I asked my heart for what I needed. And this is what came through me…
No one is coming.
Not today, not tomorrow, not EVER.
No one is coming to rescue you, save you, to get you out of debt, to comfort you, to fix your broken heart and make the pain go away.
Write it on a big piece of paper. Hang it on the wall for you and for everyone to see.
No one is coming to love you, to pamper you, to tell you how special, loving, creative, beautiful, courageous and talented you are.
No one is coming to make you feel better in any way. To give you something you don’t have. To change you or inspire you. To work for you. Earn money for you. Do the heavy lifting. Water your dreams. Live your life.
No one is coming. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not Ever.
Not until you come fully alive, and make the irrevocable decision today to be fully You, the most unashamedly you you can possibly be.
And from that place start creating in the outside, the dream that lives inside your heart. Your dream.
No one is coming, until you first come home to you.”
Powerful! Don’t you think?
If you’ve fallen off the bandwagon and nothing is going well, then it’s time to get your ass back on The Path… your Path. Call whom you have to call, send that proposal, go where you have to go, do what you have to do, and ask whom you have to ask. And if you get a “no”, simply ask someone else. Keep asking, but most importantly, keep asking with all your heart.
Your life, the life you came here to live might just depend on it.
