We’ve all heard that there is a song called “Jesus take the wheel”. I’ve never heard it, and it doesn’t even sound like a song I would even want to listen to, but there is wisdom in the title.
During my “hell year”, I always believed I was in “surrender”.
But I wasn’t.
My goal to sell my house had an even larger intention: To eliminate debt.
I even started a year-long program (Super-Size Your Soul), where each participant created a goal for 2015, and I just knew I would sell my house and accomplish my goal.
Well, I didn’t sell my house, (to which I now say, “Thank you, God”), and behold, I eliminated all of my debt!
After my rock bottom moment (it got really bad) I stopped to look at my life. There were things that were going really smoothly, and there was also that “sell the house wall” I kept beating my head into.
One day while in the depth of my misery, I met a friend for breakfast that I hadn’t seen in a while. While I waited for her to arrive, my phone pinged with an email. Grabbing my phone, I saw it was a letter to myself I had written a year ago. It was perfectly worded with the exact advice I needed in my sorry, sad state, and also reminded me of the temporary status of my misery.
During breakfast additional insight from my friend (who had no idea what I was going through) was the perfect antidotal metaphor I needed.
Then, a brief text-exchange with my sister (again not intending to share my blues) she offered the EXACT support that would alleviate my fear.
That day, I was reminded that Spirit was working both through my sister, my friend and my past self. (If you ever want to write your future self, Go to Futureme.org)
As miserable as I felt, I realized support was all around me.
Fast forward, I hosted a Cyndi Dale event which about sold out just like the first, AND a total of 17 people signed up for my wildly successful Mastery Program
I was able to eliminate debt without selling my house, and now have a beautiful way to inspire those who are going through a similar misery during the 2016 Life Lift Program.
Jesus took the wheel.
So – How do you know when the Divine is driving?
It is effortless and fun.
Four steps to Surrendering to Divine Flow: This is one of the premises of the new and improved Life Lift program:
1. Review your objectives and what you’re doing to accomplish them.
2. Determine what is working in your life, effortlessly and joyfully.
3. Note what efforts are not working towards your goals, and how they make you feel.
4. Stop doing what is draining you.
I noticed, when I reached bottom, that I felt exhausted. I also noticed that many complicated tasks were completing themselves!
God’s “flow” is joyful and effortlessness. WE want to stay in THAT flow.
I am NOT saying that you won’t have to work towards your dreams, but I am saying it shouldn’t feel like work.
