I’m sure you’ve heard the question: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Have you ever had an intuitive hit and then “it” happened? Well what came first? The intuitive hit or the event letting you know it was on its way to you?
Some faiths teach that God places the dreams and creative ideas in our hearts and minds. Some quantum physicists tell us that everything is already created and that we just have to keep moving in the direction of what we dream to receive it. Other theorists have stated our existence and everything in it is part of a hologram and thoughts, ideas, emotions and things float by our awareness and we choose what to focus on believing it is all part of us and our reality.
What do you believe is possible for your life and your children? Do you believe that ADHD is real? Do you believe that a child or anyone cannot succeed without specific credentials? Many of the societal memes are proving to be just that – collective belief myths.
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood…I took the one less traveled, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost
A recent episode of the Katie Couric Show featured a Father/Author of an autistic young adult. The Dad is an executive who created a program for disabled young people at the corporation where he works. This idea came from his worry about what would happen to his son after he passed on. This program is thriving and spreading to other companies as well.
What came first: this man’s purpose to help disabled young people thrive or his autistic son’s birth?
Here’s one less deep example from my life. When I traveled as a consultant for a financial-services software company, I got an intuitive knowing that I would get a scorpion in my room on an upcoming trip to Tucson. It was so strong that I asked about scorpions when I checked in to find out how to avoid them.
Sure enough, one evening when I was working in my room on my computer, a scorpion showed up. Doing the stereotypical female response, I jumped on the bed with the phone and called the front desk. Two young staff members came and removed it.
So here are some questions to ponder:
• Did the intuitive hit I got before leaving for Tucson plant the seed that caused me to focus on that potential outcome which caused it to happen?
• Was that outcome already a forgone conclusion for me for whatever reason and my intuition was warning me to be on the lookout for it to keep me safe and create the smoothest path through it?
• Did they happen simultaneously?
• If I had ignored the intuitive hit about the scorpion as having no meaning at all, would another reality have emerged for me in Tucson that did not include a scorpion in my hotel room?
While this is a seemingly unimportant event in anyone’s life, this example is transferable to any event in anyone’s life that involves intuition.
Your focus is part of your creative process – consciously and unconsciously. Distractions draw your attention away from what you want to create. The Dad I mentioned earlier focused on solutions rather than the problems associated with autism.
“A human being is a creature who has received the order to become God.” – Saint Basil
What this means to me is to be a creator. Co-create with God by letting the power of God flow through you and out into the world.
What do you want to create for your life?
What do your children (if you have any) want for their lives?
Everything is temporary and everything is a gift. So why not enjoy life as if it were a long string of events at Disney? Some will scare us and some will thrill us. Some will have a broader purpose such as the father who created programs for disabled young adults or me and others spreading the word that certain health “conditions” only exist because of a toxic food supply and environment.
In the end, will it really matter which one happened first as long as you followed your guidance from God as best you could and enjoyed the rides as best you could? It is said that love is all we take with us when we leave this realm. So I believe it would help to know if it enhances our ability to love and be loved.
“If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Life has become challenging for many people during this time of great transition on our planet. Focus on solutions. Forgive yourself and others. Take time to breathe, recharge and rest. Follow your own intuition and create and receive miracles from God because they happen all the time.
You just have to pay attention.
For example, yesterday there were rainbows in the clouds. No rainstorm; no typical rainbow that went across the sky – just pieces of rainbows in the clouds that kept changing shapes and colors. It was magnificent! I have pictures, but unfortunately can’t upload them yet due to technical issues. My point in sharing this example without the benefit of the pictures is to inspire you to remember that inside every cloud there is a rainbow waiting to emerge if you just pay attention, believe, and keep moving forward.
Wishing you all the best.
Enjoy infinite blessings,
