We all have our own way to do things yet there is a described way to do business, to do this and that. Everyone acts like you should do it your own way but how many times have you and someone rolls in with criticism?? I have had that happen my whole life. Others feeling the need to improve me and the system I use. "Why do you do it that way Lyn? Or how is that going to work? "Wanting me to offer some science that has proof or fits in with preferred practices. Well..... it just isn't the way things work for me!
My whole life I have listened, tried to blend my style with the way of things. I have attempted to shift to the way it works and guess what? It never works for me!!! FINALLY, I am going to full force do life the way that feels right and perfect for me! It is still a challenge with the opinions and concepts of others who seem to think they can improve my method or don't understand how my way will lead me right. Yet I have realized through my experience that I can accomplish best when I use my own magical way.
I have no real science to it other than that it works. Creatives roll through the world differently. There is a different pace or timing we use. It is whimsical, rhythmic, appears not to be work, flows in an un-syncopated way. It is not a task master, logical route. It is more like a swirl that flows in many directions at once but leads to the same point as the other. There is a focus, a plan that is more lose yet directed. It is just how it works for me. It looks like a mishmash but out of it comes great production.
I need to look at tasks from a playful angle or i won't want to do them. If I am not all on board fully, I don't give my best and then I am doing things half throttle. I am realizing how to work with myself to get the best results. It goes against the systems I have been taught. It looks like I am not working. Many get annoyed at how I operate for I get results and make it look like fun! I would tame myself down, try to be more solemn doing things, quiet up, get serious, all those things that just aren't my nature. Why? Because our society expects a certain way of being and we do get shunned if we don't fit the standard. It just is what it is.
This new age, the creatives will get their place. I may not get to see it fully but it is the way the world is going. Why? Because to get the best selves of everyone, the individual path must be honored. There are no cookie cutter people or true said paths to anything. Give 4 people a task and 4 ways will be created. We are given the gift of creative mind to solve issues in unique, fun ways that are endless. The evolution of this creative mind is the step coming forward. It is a more magical, exciting path! New ways, easier methodologies, out of the box roads are being forged before our eyes. Our world needs this for a whole humanity to get along and solve together.
We are becoming more aware of the greater whole we are. As that expands, ways to work together in harmony will take creative, unusual paths that have never existed. So we need all to be their best self so we can get the best work out of them. All the individuals make the whole and each has a one of kind way offering their unique mix to it. So we need them in that unique power so they can add their piece to the solution. We need that or we will not find the answers. Honoring the individual way is paramount.
At this time it is the initiators, innovators, inventors that are leading into this way. We have set methodologies that are agreed upon that effect us from stepping out in our individuality. Peer pressure or pack mentality scares us to step out for ridicule and criticism comes at us. At some point, the magical creator within us can stay tamed no longer. It must express and be no matter what others think. It is a force, the uniqueness we came here to share. I am embracing this part of me and supporting others to do the same. We will reach a tipping point where more will find their power in this than the trying to fit in to the sameness mentality.
I am doing a 90 day "challenge" and doing it my way. I am considering it an expansion of self rather than competitive project. I do not thrive on challenge. I learn from them but I certainly don't want to create anymore than the world throws at me. I make money in ways that have no rhythm. When I need things, some project comes in. I did a wedding this fall and 2 days before it, the bride added another 30 centerpieces! That is unheard of but at that moment in time i needed a couple thousand dollars and guess what, it cost that to create her day. How could I have seen that coming? Or planned it? Synchronicity, serendipity, all those things come in out of plan. I wander more about in the world and things just show up in the oddest ways. I find myself in places wondering why I am there and suddenly in comes the reason and it is perfectly something I was doing or needed.
This to me is the magical way to live. This is why I teach others to be magical. Not like some dark magician creating manipulation. Like a force of creativity that flows with the larger wave of life, allowing the greatness to participate. We are not in full charge but going in our direction fully. Then all the things about us can move and fall into place. It is like we are the director of ourselves to stay true and the rest is happening and we fit into it with this more open presence.
So I inspire us all to do it our own way. We need all the magical creators to integrate this greater experience we are in. If we do not allow this creativity that we have as individuals to express, it creates shadows pieces in us and plays in destructive ways. That is our shadow. Our unique way that the world has asked us to hide to fit in. A life of this has causes us to be addicts, do hidden behaviors, be less integrated and authentic. Then we beat ourselves up for doing these "wrongs". Yet that force that causes these destructive behaviors is the very magic that just wants to be it's unique self. It is quite a quagmire!!
Meanwhile we are "medding" out this great wonder we are. Hiding it. Pretending we are this or that in very subtle ways. It is just how the world is set up at this time. Yet it is opening and I am a force to support this greater way. This honor of the individual and uniqueness. There is some really cool magic out in this world when you start to open and work in this way. The old methodology is missing it for it is too limited in its vision and scope!
This is how my magical self sees it. I inspire you all to take yet another look at yourself and the world and find your own, magical way to see it. Drop the limits, the proposed way and expand into your own way. It is greatly needed! Life is way more fun too!! You can be open in your expression and this magic force in you has great power to create. Take it out of the dungeon and play with it!!
