Meditation is a regular part of my first awakening each day, it does not matter what time it might be. I recommend meditation first thing in the morning since momentum stops during sleep and you awaken with a fresh receptive mind. There are days when meditation only serves to have me start my day out right for me. And then there are days when meditation goes further…it becomes the launchpad for new ideas, for Source “directives”, and I love those days. Meditation gets me through…
And I listen to many thought leaders for inspiration including Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Oprah Winfrey, Brene Brown, Joel Osteen, Michael Bernard Beckwith, and more. Many times I turn to YouTube to randomly pick. On Saturday morning, I did just that and a new title by Joel Osteen spoke to me. The title dos not matter now because the content of his talk was totally way out in left field from the title. When that happens, I know that Source is speaking to me. And, OMG, SOURCE was poking, prodding, and talking for where I am right now in my personal transformation resulting form the time of SIP.
It was all about the story of the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. This was one of Osteen’s most metaphysical talks ever. And it was my story of EMPOWER Excellence, my money energy coaching practice where the butterfly in the logo represents transformation. I listened to it again this past weekend, and it is so perfectly SOURCE. I know, and I knew, that my wings are coming, but this was mind blowing because it is a transformation that everyone can experience.
You can be moved by what you already know within you even if you have forgotten what you were born knowing. We do not know what a caterpillar thinks and feels, we can only guess. But the caterpillar is a lonely, lowly creature moving about in slow motion. We wonder if a caterpillar knows that he is directly related to the butterfly. If he does, he must really wonder why he must go through what he is going through before he can see that he has wings and can fly. Tortuous process!
Many times many of us feel the same about money in our lives. We know we want more, we want a better relationship with money, but we may accept our position in life and go on many times giving up hope. We begin to think this is our lot in life. We have no idea that our life can change in a split second, or so it seems. Our mind has become grounded much like the caterpillar might feel. We focus on being a caterpillar. It hurts to have butterfly hopes when we believe we are the caterpillar. But then something happens. But it gets worse before it can even be better. Despair and depression in our money lives can relate to this time when the caterpillar finds itself immovable in a cocoon. Depression and despair! Compare it to the current pandemic if you will.
The wings may be forgotten on the surface because we cannot see them like the caterpillar in the cocoon. But then in a very short period of time the caterpillar leaves the cocoon . And there are wings to fly, to soar. Like the butterfly we become who we were created to be. The caterpillar operating on pure faith keeps moving through all of the stages of its life. In faith, we can keep believing and knowing what our mission is. We can fly if we have faith that never ends… We can soar with our money if we keep crawling with faith!
