Have you had moments where you felt like your life really leveled up? Are there any patterns you see in these moments?
For every level-up moment I’ve experienced, I can trace it back to something I embraced that was new for me. Also, through taking in new input, it helped me see old things with a new perspective.
A Few Level Up Moments
For example, a moment when I leveled up socially was during a workshop. I had been trying to solve this problem of making money in an inspiring, heart-centered way all alone. This wasn’t working. Instantly after meeting people who were making a living in a heart-centered way and connecting dots, things started shifting quickly in a positive direction. I started making passive income every month after my first book was published 3 years ago (right after the workshop) and still continue to make a liiiiiiitle every month now. This changed how I looked at finances. I had been serving a company to earn money before…and that means I served one entity. But with the book I published lots of people benefitted – in a smaller way, but the volume of people I served was waaaay larger and I loved a lot more of the process. From then on I saw how the solution to this problem was more of a social problem than a how-to, step-by-step, information / mental problem. It made me look at the old way of doing things with a new perspective.
Another level up moment is when I joined a 12-step program, and left a lot of my life up to my sponsor. It was beautiful. From the moment I got the sponsor, health wise and weight-wise my life was better. I ended up losing 110 lbs from that moment. Again…the answer for me was social. They told me exactly what to eat and when and how to satisfy my hunger to be able to sustain it to lose weight and have a normal-sized body.
I had to embrace spending $500 on a workshop and traveling to Las Vegas. I had never spent that much money on a workshop and never traveled to Las Vegas. That was new for me. I had to embrace joining a 12-step program (I actually didn’t know it was a 12-step program before joining) and having a sponsor who told me what to do. That was new as hell!
Now I’ve seem to come to a place where I’m being called to embrace more input. Even with this blog…it’s not receiving much traffic now, but i know the steps to get it off the ground because I’ve repeatedly gotten things off the ground before. It feels like I’m being called to get more of my work/art/ideas etc into more people’s hands, to put it out there in a much bigger way, and invite more feedback and be able to handle and process it consistently. That will be new for me in so many areas. It requires me to face many fears, but it seems unavoidable if I want to take my life in a direction where I want to make my living through creative expression. It is feeling like one of those level up moments.
Back to You
What is calling you? Is there something in your life that you want to level up? Embrace the new as much as possible to spark a level-up moment! New experiences or new travel destinations or new vacations or new workshops or restaurants or new habits or new trials or new input or new physical exercise or new groups to join or create.
You might find old, mental conditioning rising up in your mind to enhance your doubts and fears, but suspend the disbelief for a while. Don’t block the energy that is leading you to new. Follow the breadcrumbs, stay curious and follow the energy where it wants to flow on step at a time. Keep consulting with the present moment and allow the next right action step to come through.
