Keeping the Faith
 
green line
 
 
 
The next step in our 5-step, emotional fitness routine is a close companion to last week's step of Letting Go... it's Having Faith.
 
1.  Stay present
2.  Feel good first; ask for what you want second
3.  Let go
 
4.  Have faith
 
In the early years of my consulting practice, I scheduled my business according to a template designed to achieve my financial and professional goals.  As long as it was filled, I was on track -- that was until a client or lecture cancelled or rescheduled or a workshop did not fill as planned. These events generally produced an immediate sense of loss and fear, resulting in anxiety and often times panic.
 
faithLast week's idea of "letting go" of that which is not serving you assumes something good is coming to fill the space you've just opened.  A huge piece of strengthening your emotional well-being is living your life with a belief that there is always enough.  Enough money, enough clients, enough business.  Letting go doesn't work very well without the counterpart of having faith.  Without it the void feels scary and the more the fear grows, the less likely you are to continue to let go.
 
This year marked my 17th year in business.  I've learned through experience, that things work out for me.  Every time, every month, every year.  The frustration, worry, and fear that accompany unexpected change is wasted energy.  I just had a client date reschedule from this Fall into next year.  In the past, I would have stressed about how we would possibly refill those dates at such a late notice.  And while I still feel the emotions pass through my consciousness, my awareness is heightened (through much practice) to notice it, gently move it aside, and choose to keep the faith.  Not just faith that something else will miraculously fill the exact space with the exact same piece of business but rather a belief that it's all perfect... however it works out.  I believe there will always be enough for me and my job is to stay open, expectant, and in alignment with that which is coming.
 
Make no mistake that I work to keep creating business and taking advantage of opportunities.  And I truly have no doubt that I will either receive the same amount (or better) of business to replace it or the space the cancellation opened up will result in a perfect opportunity for a new idea, product, or some expansion personally or professionally.
 
So let go.  Keep faith in the abundance available to you.  It's all, always, perfect.

"When you walk to the edge of all the light you have
and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
you must believe that one of two things will happen:
There will be something solid for you to stand upon,
or, you will be taught how to fly."
