Sometimes, enlightenment requires doing the work first (Sometimes You Just Need To Do the Work )


But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes, when we least expect it, enlightenment will come knocking on our doors or whisper in our ears….


Now, for that to work, we need to be ready for it. We need to acknowledge that such messages exist and that they may come to us without advance warning. We need to be prepared to stop and listen. We need to stop talking ourselves out of what our inner wisdom has to tell us. We need to be able to accept that, while sometimes you need to work hard to move forwards, that is not always the case.

That we can’t demand that enlightenment come with no effort on our parts, but that sometimes it does anyway

Our friends at Dictionary.com tell us that serendipity is

  • an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident, and also
  • good fortune or luck

Sometimes, enlightenment comes through serendipity.

So, if you’re looking to advance in a metaphysical area, I’d encourage you to pick your goal, lay your plans and get working on your dream-but I’d also urge you to keep an eye out for that unexpected  moment of inspiration.

Because sometimes, serendipity…

ah, how sweet they are- those moments of serendipity…

Dependent on whether you’ve followed this blog for awhile or not, you may or may not know that I  try to put out a book a year (last year was extra special and I wrote two of them). You may or may not know that, this year, I started working on one topic and struggled with it.

I knew what I wanted to write about and what man of the points I wanted to cover were, but somehow it wasn’t coming together. It wouldn’t gel. The words didn’t sound like me.

I backed up over and over, taking a run at it again and again from different angles, but it just wouldn’t work, I’m sure that that book needs to be written, and that I will write it, but the time for it is evidently not yet.

And so I switched over to another topic – dream work. Writing about dream interpretation but also other ways to work with dreams to make your life better.

and it was going well, but I found myself questioning myself.

Had I given up too easily? Was this really the book I was supposed to be writing?

I’d been noticing more and more people coming to Starwolf and myself and asking about dreams and how to work with them, but I was still not quite sure.

And then, Sunday night came around…

We were heading back from a weekend working at the Connecticut Renaissance faire and were both feeling a little off. You know, a little scratchy throat, a little achy, a little tired- not sick, but at the point where we’d been outside in slightly chilly weather and were over tired and might come down with something if we didn’t take care of ourselves.

and so we stopped for takeout at a certain chain tex-mex restaurant, as tortilla soup is great for fending off a mini-cold. I placed our order and asked if we could have it as soon as possible, as I wanted to get home, eat and then work on my book.

“What are you reading” asked the waitress, and so I explained that actually it was a book I was writing on dream work

Her face lit up. She told me that a close friend of hers had died a year ago, and had been visiting her nightly in dreams ever since, and she had been looking for someone or something to give her more insight into this.

We talked for a bit, while our order was cooking, and she took my contact info so she could watch for the new book when it comes out.

And I knew then, that the book I’m working on now is the right book for the time, and it’s just what I need to be writing

ah, how sweet they are- those moments of serendipity…

Saw a post on Facebook the other day that said “Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy”.

Let’s think about that for a moment.

Now it’s true that good things are worth working for. It’s not a bad thing to remember that you may want to put in some effort if there’s something you really want at the end of the road.

But that doesn’t mean that nothing worth having comes easy. Sometimes great things just drop into your arms. This happens in life often enough that we even have a word for it – “Serendipity”; and if there’s a word for it, you know that it’s something that exists.

And the belief that nothing worth having comes easily can be a real trap for you. Energetically, it’ll tend to attract more hard work into your life than is needed to attract your goals and repel simpler methods that might be just as good at getting you where you want to go. And psychologically, it can cause you to assume anything you have to work hard for must have value (which is not always the case) and anything that comes easily must be worthless (which is also untrue)

So what if, instead of “Nothing worth having comes easy.” , you chose instead to believe “Good things come easily and joyously into my life.”, “It’s worth working for the things I want.” or “Sometimes I need to work to make things happen- and sometimes they just come to me.”

Later in this series of posts, I’ll be talking about how to change beliefs that don’t serve you for those that do. For now, just give this some thought and get clear on what you’d like to believe.

What if good things were easy for you?
