Exhaustion comes in different forms, doesn’t it?
Some exhaustion you don’t want … it feels awful … but there’s another kind of exhaustion, the kind that feels satisfying … a pleasant weariness that happens after you spent a whole day doing something that you love … and that’s the exhaustion I’ve been feeling the past few weeks …
Everything that is HAPPENING right now … becoming my REALITY … once seemed IMPOSSIBLE.
And as long as you think it is “impossible” to have what you want … you won’t get it.
I am spending this week in Tahoe. I’m doing 20 full Holistic Belief Reprogramming sessions with my clients this week … wow, that is 30 hours of HBR!!
Money is literally POURING into my bank account … and this means that coaching — my true life passion — really is becoming my main source of income …
Today after my morning HBR sessions, I went skiing for a few hours at the legendary ski resort of Squaw Valley. Hopefully you can see why I love it here:
Skiing is one of my true passions, but in the past, I could only go a limited number of days each year because I “had to” go back to my job every Monday morning. Now I will have the freedom to go as many days as I want.
In the past, I bought into the bullshit belief that my body would deteriorate over time, and that I could expect life to get less and less fun over time. Quite the opposite, it’s getting better and better. And far from deteriorating, my body has healed. The latest miracle is that a knee injury that has plagued me for years has disappeared, and I can now ski without taking Advil and without any pain :)
Have you bought into the bullshit beliefs that you are a body and your “good time” on this planet is limited?
A Course in Miracles teaches: “The body, valueless and hardly worth the least defense, need merely be perceived as quite apart from you, and it becomes a healthy, serviceable instrument through which the mind can operate until its usefulness is over. Who would want to keep it when its usefulness is done?”
What I am seeing in my own life is that the so-called “aging” process is actually REVERSING. My chronic pain disappeared. My skin healed. The vibrance returned to my overall appearance. My energy has been restored to levels that I don’t remember having, even as a child.
Anyone can have this …
Eternal youth is your birthright. You are God incarnate. And how can God possibly be powerless over the aging process?
It’s time to take all your power back.
“And what is the black-draped body they would bury? A body which they dedicated to death, a symbol of corruption, a sacrifice to sin, offered to sin to feed upon and keep itself alive; a thing condemned, damned by its maker and lamented by every mourner who looks upon it as himself. You who believe you have condemned the Son of God to this are arrogant. But you who would release him are but honoring the Will of his Creator. The arrogance of sin, the pride of guilt, the sepulchre of separation, all are part of your unrecognized dedication to death. The glitter of guilt you laid upon the body would kill it. For what the ego loves, it kills for its obedience. But what obeys it not, it cannot kill.
“You have another dedication that would keep the body incorruptible and perfect as long as it is useful for your holy purpose. The body no more dies than it can feel. It does nothing. Of itself it is neither corruptible nor incorruptible. It is nothing. It is the result of a tiny, mad idea of corruption that can be corrected. For God has answered this insane idea with His Own; an Answer Which left Him not, and therefore brings the Creator to the awareness of every mind which heard His Answer and accepted It.”
- A Course in Miracles
Today as I was skiing, I hit an icy stretch without realizing it, and before I knew it, I was rocketing down the mountain at a speed that scared the shit out of me (I like to ski fast, so when I say fast, I am not kidding around). And I was continuing to accelerate. The skis chattering unsteadily beneath me. But because it was so icy, making turns to slow myself down probably would have resulted in a crash. Part of me wanted to try to slow down anyway, and was prepared to crash early on so that I wouldn’t get going any faster.
And then a Voice came into my mind and said: Surrender.
In that instant, my body relaxed, and I let go into the acceleration. A straight bee-line down a steep icy hill !! Amazingly, I did not crash, and eventually I hit soft snow again and was able to slow down.
It was so symbolic of how my life has become. I once wanted to control everything, plan everything, fight everything. The fact that I was able to surrender into that speed today shows me how much I have moved into TRUST and SURRENDER in all areas of my life.
Tonight I watched the sun setting over the gorgeous forest where this house is set … first from the hot tub, where I was soaking and gazing up at the pine trees, and then from my bedroom …
I felt a sense of the deepest possible INNER PEACE. Satisfaction. Fulfillment. Happiness :)
And now I’m sipping a glass of wine from my brother’s winery that we store in the wine cellar …
Marveling at how I managed to manifest all this and turn my “impossible dream life” into a reality …
I feel so blessed :)
