My early college training was as a scientist. I have been a lifelong student of learning. I have placed tremendous value on research and fact-finding.
Yet today I am saying goodbye to the preciousness of research in my life. I see that it can actually weigh me down, in the form of baggage I’ve been carrying around. I think it derived from the fear response I had when I explored new thoughts out loud and someone else would yell, “Prove it!” Off I would go, responding to orders, and creating a false sense of satisfaction and comfort from being able to “prove it.”
Facts are so incredibly fast-moving and fluid today. Your known world is very dependent on where and how you travel. Each week literally I am contacted by friends and clients who rejected my facts and advice years ago, only to say, “I am ready now” or “I guess you were right.” This is not about me being superior – it is merely that I am an extreme early adopter. And this applies to so many areas of my life, but especially in my business and in my personal approach to spirituality.
There is plenty of research out there now anyway, that if someone else wants it, they can find it. I no longer have to be the provider, unless of course I am interested. Being interested in something is – as you know once I write this – a completely different energy than research as a defensive position, a fight or flight response.
I am not only allowed but now encourage myself to move forward based on my understanding of the energy, of the vibration, without the need for supporting data. Once you can prove something, it is already a known entity anyway by those who have chosen the path of direct experience. I think you see this often in business – those who can conceive of a solution before some even realize they have a problem! It is that inner knowing combined with a willingness to follow one’s desires, proof can come later if necessary.
I say goodbye to this baggage and choose to swim au naturel in the sea of the Divine. Want to join me?
