These past few weeks, I’ve been feeling a LOT and I recognize that I’m more excited than fearful. Even when it comes to finding a job to create financial abundance – the feelings I’m experiencing are more “what is it going to be” rather than “it will not happen” … I trust that the right job will be offered to me at the right time.
I also know that it is completely possible for me to earn money as a full time artist — all I need to do is continue to take all of the action I can take for this to happen.
AND some of the action is to WAIT!
When I used to take the bus in NYC – I would often say, the important part about taking the bus is BEING OK WITH THE WAIT! The bus is going to come – it may be late however, there is a bus running and it will appear when it does and I will get to my destination. I am using this thought right now — I made a video today so I could release out loud – MY NEED TO KNOW!!
I know it will happen — I don’t need to know when, how, where, or what … because I know WHY it will happen! Things will happen because All of my needs are ALWAYS taken care of! and this has been true since I made the decision to let go of my apartment and leave NYC. TRUST TRUST TRUST!!
And let go of the old limiting habits of wanting to worry & stress! this does no one any good!!
Seriously — relax & enjoy!!
so today this is the plan — to relax & enjoy!!
Sharing a great DAILY OM I received today — to remind me of what’s exciting in my life!!

Translating Our Feelings
Are You Excited Or Scared?
Often times when trying something new, we feel scared when in actuality we may be excited. Reframe your thoughts.
When new challenges and opportunities show up in our lives, we may
diagnose ourselves as feeling scared when what we really feel is
excited. Often we have not been taught how to welcome the thrill of a
new opportunity, and so we opt to back off, indulging our anxiety
instead of awakening our courage. One way to inspire ourselves to
embrace the opportunities that come our way is to look more deeply into
our feelings and see that butterflies in our stomach or a rapidly
beating heart are not necessarily a sign that we are afraid. Those very
same feelings can be translated as excitement, curiosity, passion, and
There is nothing wrong with being afraid as long as we do not let it
stop us from doing the things that excite us. Most of us assume that
brave people are fearless, but the truth is that they are simply more
comfortable with fear because they face it on a regular basis. The more
we do this, the more we feel excitement in the face of challenges
rather than anxiety. The more we cultivate our ability to move forward
instead of backing off, the more we trust ourselves to be able to
handle the new opportunity, whether it’s a new job, an exciting move,
or a relationship. When we feel our fear, we can remind ourselves that
maybe we are actually just excited. We can assure ourselves that this
opportunity has come our way because we are meant to take it.
Framing things just a little differently can dramatically shift our
mental state from one of resistance to one of openness. We can practice
this new way of seeing things by saying aloud: I am really excited
about this job interview. I am really looking forward to going on a
date with this amazing person. I am excited to have the opportunity to
do something I have never done before. As we do this, we will feel our
energy shift from fear, which paralyzes, to excitement, which empowers
us to direct all that energy in the service of moving forward, growing,
