When I’m working on a new project or effecting a change in my world, at first, I can feel overwhelmed and alone with it. But I remember that the Universe conspires to help those who are working on their divine path, and because I’m my own change agent, I look for ways to get change going. I’ve always heard that “God helps those who helps themselves,” and I see how my actions help bring about the synchronicities that will help me. Through experience, I’ve found several activities that support my projects.
Even when I don’t know what I’m doing, it always helps to take action. At first, I would be paralyzed that I’ll make the wrong decision, but I shouldn’t. If I take a “wrong” action, the universe will correct me, and it will guide me in a more appropriate direction. If the action was appropriate, the universe will support me. Non-action turns my goal into a dream; to make things happen, I must exert my will.
If my idea is still in its infancy, I might read a book or take a class to hone my skills that support it. I might talk to people who are experienced in the field and hear about their experiences. Although unrelated to my project, I might put in place some of the supports I will need when business is booming. I often find an app to help me (it’s amazing what’s out there!), or I might focus on something that’s related. For example, if I’ve decided that I will change my family life by preparing a home-cooked meal every day after work, I’ll review options I’m aware of. I’d look at meal planning apps, menu services, a service sending boxed meal ingredients to my home, or the nearby commercial kitchen that sells space and ingredients to prep a month of meals in one afternoon. Whether I choose one of these solutions or not, I’m exerting my will as I examine them, and the universe responds with more ideas and synchronicities. With each step, I tell the Universe that I’m serious about change.
If I have a new service to offer in my business, I give away a few sessions to valued clients or friends of friends. This sends out the energy that I’m serious about it, and everything seems to grow because I’m juicing the universe! I gain valuable confidence, and they may refer me to others. I focus on gratitude for my steady clients and infusing my will into building the new service. With each step, I’m exerting my will and telling the universe my intent.
If I think about things — but don’t act – I’m just daydreaming. I’m good at that too, but without any energy behind them, those projects remain in the dream zone. When I set my intentions, push my will into it, and take a few actions, things change. When I juice the universe, it supports me!
