Everything Is A Gift

What if, all you had to do was ask? For what you need. For what you want. For what you desire.

What if you all you had to do was ask for the support…the guidance…the way to that next level of this gorgeous human experience?

What if all you had to was ask and it would show up?

Would you trust it? Trust that everything that came to you was for you? That everything that showed up was exactly the potion to transform you, so that you could fit perfectly through the key hole? Would you trust that everything was the arrow? The sign? The perfect tool?

Would you trust even if you couldn’t see the gift in the moment? Even if it seemed like all hope was lost? Would you trust that the stupid, meaningless things that pop up to block your way are exactly what you have been askingbeggingpraying for?

Or would you ignore what showed up? Rage against it even? Thinking that because it looks like a duck it could never be the swan of your longing? Could you lean into seeing it? Feeling it? Would you believe the inner promptings of your heart that this might just possibly be what you asked for if it seems just plain wrong???What if everything that ever showed up for you was designed especially for your amazing journey and all you had to do was recognize it as such? All you had to do was see it as perfect and it would be alchemized into perfection? What if you job was to use every bit of the juice and pulp and skin and rinds of whatever life throws your way? What if it wasn’t thrown at all…but a response to everything you have been asking for from the belly of your soul?

Truth: Everything is in service. To you. EVERYTHING. Even that. Especially that. Everything can be the stepping stool. The spiritual weedwacker. The magical illuminating flashlight pointing us on the perfect adventure to realize the epic desires of our beings. We are answered. Time and time again. Our job is just to see it as so. To say yes. Yes to the answers we get. To what we cannot see but can still feel the pull of. To say yes to ourselves in bright and sizzling ways. Our job is to use life. Every tiny bit of it. Sometimes what we get leads us right to what we are asking for. Sometimes its more of a twisty adventure. Sometimes, even, we get what we need to drop like a hot potato…so we can complete that old pattern for the very last time ever. But every bit is for us. Every thing is answer to our late night wishes. Everything is a gift. EVERYTHING.
