Hastening Leadership

When you startle awake with the streaming revelation in response to your daily inquiry of “whys”, sequentially demonstrating how one internal disposition led to a series of deficient events you’ve been internally bellowing about… it’s time to GET UP!

They say that the ‘witching hours’ are those dark few just before dawn.  Most of us have heard that the veil is thinner, both literally and metaphorically and anyone who has endured a deep and dark night of the soul gets the metaphor full in the face.

The past two years have been a journey of incessant inquiry for me.  It has also been two years of some serious dismantling and personal and professional re-branding.  The two years of playing anchor to my knowing and seeking has been bounteous and fruitful…. In fact overwhelmingly so!  Conscious confirming data of the soul and it’s purpose has flowed generous and consistent rounding out my wisdom base and clarifying earlier suspicions on lesser known details weaving a constellation of truths I now overflow with.

And, like all obedient and earnest seekers, I have laid at the teet of truth yearning to suckle more until the epic moment of evolution in human consciousness drew me to my feel in a cacophony of brotherhood and transcendence and took my place among the masses in song and common purpose!  Can you hear the heavenly choruses now?

And I waited.  I read the prophecies, interpreted the signs and waited some more.  And I grew deeply, darkly impatient.

I have many a time referred to this earth home, era in civilization and it’s current sentient consciousness as the “dummy rock”.  Ugly, I know.  And why so cynical?  Or as Jack Nicholson in his role as Joker with his charismatically sinister smile,…. “Why so serious?”

My immediate shout back would be, isn’t it perfectly obvious?  All the experts agree.  We either evolve or we are headed towards a very rapid extinction event!

Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  He also said we cannot solve a problem with the same thinking we used when we created them.  I am effectively paraphrasing here but this rather well respected physicist and early quantum investigator would be hard to argue with.  No reasonable person would.

And yet, that is STILL the condition of most of humanity today!  Do I hear “dummy rock?”

At this risk of sounding arrogant, the path to understanding why society is so cyclical in it’s inequality and hostility, who has been in charge, how long this has been the case, what their motives might be and if those motives are in my and the rest of humanity’s best interest is ultimately pretty damn easy to investigate and ultimately decipher.  Especially with the “all seeing internet”.  It is now spectacularly easy.  Follow the money folks.

So why so many souls indignantly morose and equally complacent about the status quo?

Perhaps they don’t know their limitless options?  Potential for change?  Boundless solutions already in implementable templates?  Are they unable to decipher genuinely moral leadership, transparent in motive and deed?  Maybe they don’t feel sufficiently elected to direct others and collaboratively act upon available solutions?  Ahhhhhhhhh!…………..

And in comes the stream of revelation.  This Reluctant Intuitive has just as poignantly been the reluctant leader, barricading my own receptivity in wishful aspiration of steadfast philanthropy.  And it has stripped me bare and left my field interpreted as “open for the takers!”  Before we can give, we must receive.  We cannot be givers unless tapped into receiving.  Of course I knew this.  And the natural progression of the apprentice, maturing student, novice teacher and growing sage is LEADERSHIP.

And there it is.

Global solutions require SOLUTIONARIES that are bold and brazen enough to lead.  That includes me, without self deluding thoughts of inadequacy, squirming away from the call by perpetual intimidation and even meaningful distraction.

NOW, calling all reluctant leaders; would be solutionaries in your various states of activation and becoming!  ARISE and fill your place as change agents and LEADERS!  Seeing what is ‘wrong’ and articulating it well IS NOT enough.  

Time to stand and be counted among the active leadership in our evolving world in transition.  There is so much brilliance here and it’s time to raise the IQ and EQ of our global leadership!

Hasten the change and create your future!  Let’s talk about HOW.

Are you “Spiraling” or just “Cycling”?

The great mystics, avatars and sages of humankind have all acknowledged the mystical properties of spirals and their significance in the inherent symbology of human soul growth.

Spirals can be found in nature to remind us of this fact.  We often witness them in the intrinsic rings of newly hewn lumber,…. winding like artistic fractals within the framework of sea shells, and in the gentle curl of infant ferns hugging upon themselves.  The mystery of the spiral reminds us that with each new season of growth we are offered the privileged aerial view of where we have once been.  Our learning and experience build upon themselves.  Spirals are a natural part of our lives and development.

Cycles are also a part of our experience.  There are cycles in each of the seasons, cycles in the heavenly bodies, and within our own bodies as well.

But when patterns of learned behavior show up as cycles in our lives that feel stuck, self-sabotaging and defeating, we are not in harmony with our natural flows.

Do well-worm comfort zones have you “cycling” in ways that disallow genuine growth and simply return you to your self-imposed sign post?

Does the fear of change, the fear of loss or the discomfort of really feeling yourself fully alive in your body have you living in small, predictable patterns of repeated behavior?

What are your excuses?  What stories might you tell yourself to keep you defensively where you are? 

In Miguel Angel Ruiz’s book Beyond Fear, he challenges the reader to wake up from the dream of life that we are living.  He states that to attempt to stay the same is to live as though one were dead. 

The cells of our body are dying, being recreated and born anew every moment…… shouldn’t our consciousness be following suit?  We are not stagnant beings,… perpetually the same.  The one thing that we can count on in this world and life experience is the constancy of change.

As this 2011 year comes into its fullness and ultimate close, what have you learned that has inspired you?  What has shifted your perception of the world?  What has rocked your sense of self?  What gifts of expansive awareness have allowed you to see from the “aerial view”?  What is the sacred spiral of life offering you, if you would only courageous look down?

Deeper, richer moments of self knowing and gratification await us when we break from the cycles and forge ahead fearlessly into gently beckoning, yet unknown paths.

Take a class.  Indulge in a trip to a foreign land that offers the rawness of unfamiliar culture, geography and mindsets.  Write a blog about your life so far and what deep-seated hunger you are discovering rising within you for adventure.  Let something overly comfortable go and see how much you notice the lack of it weeks later.  Make a new friend that respectfully challenges your thinking and worldview.  Read a book that stimulates your imagination.

Consider the spirals all around you……………… 

We live within the spiral of spirals….. encouraging us and inspiring us to believe in ourselves.

What a gift to acknowledge that we are capable of living large, powerfully and on purpose!

Cheers to the end of this year of transformation and becoming!  Welcome in the brilliant, vibrant new opportunities that await each of us.
