Haha! Yes! So this stepping into my power and having lots of fun seems to be working out! The people who come into my life from my active involvement are in alignment with my own mindset! I met up with Glenn the photographer (And Ron his Assistant) today and we exchanged ideas and information. It turns out he and his partner are all about conservation, and high vibe stuff like John Lennon and saving the sea turtles. I immediately felt a connection to them like I knew them and their vibe is great, relaxed, fun loving, and both of them seem to have open hearts. He looked at my ideas for my shoot and said "Yeah these are doable." This is amazing for me, I've never attempted anything remotely this daring. It really comes down to trusting ourselves and courageously stepping out into the void and remembering to always have as much fun and be as relaxed as possible. Make light of it! It can all be exhilarating! And this is only the beginning of my journey for I am only a few days into my "Leaps of Faith" phase, which may continue for a while now, or indefinitely! Trusting ourselves is trusting our heart, and that takes courage to live fully.
A Little Confidence Boost
Well last night I received some experiential support in the form of me flirting with a girl. Actually I didn't flirt at all it was more that just me being me was appealing to her, she actually was trying to get my attention, to get me to bend to her will but I didn't. So I was teasing her basically, and when she least expected it I gave her what she wanted. She was surprised and delighted and seemed almost desperate by the time I showed her the kind of attention she wanted. It was a valuable experience, one that I feel was set up to aid my current "efforts" to grow into the man I was made to be. To give me the confidence I need not to back down perhaps from opportunity when it feels daunting.
A Little Confidence Test
Speaking of which, Spirit tested me this morning on my way to the meet up. A little girl said loudly as I passed their home "You're ugulyyy." Now I don't know if she was talking to me or her sibling, but it really stood out. It's got that kinda feel to it like it was set up as a test. It was a test to my self worth. It was short lived though. People in life who have low self worth will attract challenges to their self image as long as they depend on others for validation it seems. The purpose of that kind of test is to get us to derive value from only one place, within, and to not turn from the path our Spirit calls us to no matter what kind of challenges others put before us. The effect of the little girls words were light, I didn't take them to heart, I actually found it humorous and really a gift. Never has someone said that until the day I go to meet up with a photographer to arrange a photo session. It's just funny. :) Synchronistic even.
A Balanced Intention
I have three simple intention for this period, and then some other intentions that may or may not fit into these categories. But these are the top three for sure!
1. Have lots of FUN with others. (The left)
2. Courageous Self Empowerment (The right)
3. Deepening connection to Spirit. (The center)
This photo shoot is all three wrapped up in to one, it is a really big move for me! But there aint no way I am backing down. If we wish to know what we are capable of we must be willing to do things we've never done before.
All things creative.
