How to Heed the Call

You have a calling. A spark that dances around within you…pulling at you. Inviting you over and over to show up. To make a difference. To spread your sparkle to the far corners of your life. You have a calling. And yet, so many stay stuck. Knowing it is there. Knowing that something is prodding them out of the old and into the majestic…something that will enrich the experience of ALL. Many folks know this and still play in the realm of, “but it isn’t clear” or “but I don’t know what to do”. Despite the ease of staying still and hidden…it is deeply unsatisfying. We miss out on the electricity. On the creativity. On the chance to live fully in this human experience. But you don’t have to stay stuck any more. You can heed the call.

First, listen. Listen to the call inside of you. How it hums. How it aches. Feel the yearning. The whispers. Find the source of the inspiration that dwells in your being and see what it has to say. Pay attention to your wants. Your desires are the call. They are not superfluous…they come from a deep wellspring that connects every soul. They will show you the path of how you can bring your sizzle into the hearts and minds of those who would be most ignited. But first you have to listen.

The next step is to ask. Ask yourself. Ask The Universe. Ask your friends. Your family. Your peeps. Ask. Ask how you can serve. Given who you are. Given what you want. Given your skills, resources, gifts, talents…given the fullness of who you are, how can you show up and work your wonder on this planet.

Then, use it. Use the feedback. Take it all. Every bit you get is for you. Use the yes. The no. Use the static. It’s all shining in your direction in service to you. It is all the right answer. You are being supported. The Universe wants this for you! The collective whole rises up when you answer the calling of your soul. When you stand forward in the truth of who you are choose to serve, everyone and everything benefits. Trust what answers you get.

Last and not least…get hopping. Do something. Take a step. A leap. An itty bitty scootch. Even if you are afraid. Even if your mind is coming up with reasons upon reasons for you stop, hide your head and run back to the safety of the unseen. Do it anyway. Take the risk of failure and refuse to let that deter you. Test the waters. See what is a hit. See what is a flop. Appreciate the feedback. Adjust your sails. And keep answering the call. Always.
