I read a couple blog posts on intuition and hard work this last week and received some insight into the views of a successful, well-known writer in the mainstream field of copy-writing. This post attempts to bridge the gap between those whose views are more “mainstream” (hard work is more important, and there is no magic), with those who consider themselves “spiritual” (inner guidance is more important, and magic exists everywhere). Also, this blog post reveals the important distinctions so that people on both sides can implement changes that bring greater satisfaction and results. By reading and implementing the ideas in this post, you will gain access to the “magic” that’s available in the Universe when you combine intuition with hard work.

John Carlton’s recent blog post tells how he made changes and transformed his life from one of a slacker (where he “got away with laziness, unreliability, and a self-destructive refusal to change”) to one where he “cleaned up his messes, fixed what was broken in his personality, took responsibility, and became more conscious and more precise in how he looked at the world.” Today he is recognized as one of the best, most “real” copywriters in his field. John writes,

“The problem with most self-help crap out there is that folks honestly believe that voicing a philosophy will trigger real change. So they visualize their new selves, and chant magic resolutions, and try to hook into some imaginary lifeline dangling from the universe that will do the transformation FOR them.

Not gonna happen. In my career, I witnessed amazing coincidences and lucky twists of fate that — in my lazier days — I would have assigned to mysterious forces. Things DO start happening, once you get moving.

But it’s not magic — it’s the natural result of taking action, goosing your network for opportunities, and being hyper-aware of what you bring to the table and how you might use that to break down doors.”–John Carlton

This is intelligent, however John could benefit by developing a greater understanding of intuition and the magic that’s possible when you follow through with your intuition / inner guidance. It’s just that you DO have to learn to distinguish your true inner guidance from your mental conditionings and social programming. Too many people confuse their inner guidance with their “gut feelings,” or with conventional wisdom. Whose voice is in your head? Is it the still small voice of your intuition, or is it the parental voice, the voice of peers, the teacher, etc? Learning to distinguish which is which isn’t all that easy, but necessary.

I’ve struggled with my intuition for years–until I learned to connect with my higher self and to distinguish the voice of my higher self from all the other voices in my head. (Your “higher self” is your bridge to the divine.) Then little by little I learned to follow through with my inner guidance promptly and consistently, and I’ve had some crazy, amazing synchronicities (that I call “magic”) happen from time to time, including many helpful synchronicities on a regular basis.

I commented on John’s blog, and he responded:

“I, too, have benefited from amazing synchronicity and connections that sound like fiction but are true. (Like “Think And Grow Rich” actually falling out off a shelf into my lap at the exact right time in my life — I was sleeping on a friend’s couch, homeless and miserable.) I believe, and advise, that the universe rewards proactive behavior. My warning on intuition is that you need to ROAD TEST it before relying on it…

Thinking that there’s any “magic” to this synchronicity stuff rubs me wrong. It’s all about movement and being hyper-aware that opportunity is a fleeting whisper in the breeze, and if you miss it it’s gone forever. So you get attuned to how the world works, and you swim into the tides…Again, not magic. Not intuition. Just hard-core movement and staying attuned to the subtle whispers of opportunity.”–John Carlton

I agree with John that the Universe rewards proactive behavior, but what I want to emphasize here (and the main point of this blog post) is that the Universe rewards proactive behavior even more when it’s inspired by your intuition / inner guidance (as opposed to your “ego” wants, your fears of survival, your desires to be a “success” out in the world). The combination of working hard on what you’re inspired to work on (through your inner guidance) just can’t be beat.

When you learn to distinguish your inner guidance from the regular thoughts in your head and then develop enough confidence such that you follow through with it promptly and consistently, that’s when you tap into a kind of magic and flow and “universal cooperation” that isn’t available to you when you just depend on hard work and “pounding the pavement.”

The following is a real life example, taken from a previous blog post of mine. It illustrates the magic that’s available, as well as John’s point that most opportunities are fleeting.

“About three and a half years ago, I was hiking in the Los Gatos foothills when all of a sudden I received a hunch to call an acquaintance. I had promised to help with a project, and I wanted to communicate that I could be counted on.

I realized I didn’t have his number in my cell phone contact list, but as I was hiking up the hill, I remembered I had called him recently. So I looked through my call history for a (650) area code number and dialed the first (650) number I came across.

An unfamiliar man’s voice answered, “This is KZSU and you’re the winner. “Can you hold?”

“Yes, I can hold,” I said, blown away, realizing I had just “by accident” called the radio station where my friend hosted a weekly radio show, wondering if the current host was going to ask me questions I could not answer, or whether I was going to have to explain that I wasn’t listening to the show at the moment.

Well, it turns out that I won a pair of tickets to the Monterey Jazz Festival! And even though I had been very confident in my ability to discern and follow through with my inner guidance by then, this amazing result raised my confidence even more.

Notice that I didn’t hesitate to follow through with my intuition. Even though I knew I didn’t have my friend’s number in my contacts, that didn’t prevent me from figuring out another way to get the number. Notice also that there was a very small “window of opportunity” for getting this particular result. If you wait too long to follow through with your intuition, your window of opportunity will pass you by.”–end of excerpt

I have an even more amazing example I wrote a blog post on, something that happened to a friend of mine. The link to the post is below:

“Magic” Happens When A Friend Follows Through With His Inner Guidance

Tell me please that there isn’t SOME magic happening here…

I have found that this kind of “magic” happens much more often when you actively get on the path of fulfilling your higher purpose, rather than just continuing the status quo, or going along with things in “survival mode.” I know this because I experienced many amazing and magical synchronicities when I actively took the steps to fulfill my higher purpose, which I have chronicled in my hardcover book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening.

I also feel that going along with the status quo will no longer work for people and it will become more and more obvious that it’s the road to destruction, both for the individual as well as for the planet.

Now that you know this, you have a chance to activate the magic that will help to transform this planet–but only when you combine hard work with your (true) inner guidance.

Thank you for reading and sharing this blog post!

This week I am sharing a spiritual message from Brenda Hoffman about stepping into your role as a light-worker, as a creator of the new age of love and joy. How do you create the change you want to see in the world?

Dear Ones,

Some of you will claim … that your life, thoughts, sensations and emotions are no different from last year.

Perhaps you wish to be on the Lightworker stage but feel you are not worthy or that someone/something is stopping you. Neither belief is correct. You are a Lightworker. Granted, not everyone has or even wants the same skills in this new earth transition. But if you continue to deny the energies surrounding you –  and this week, almost pummeling you – then you are not ready to move forward. (By “energies surrounding you,” I usually take this to mean messages and feelings and hunches coming into your awareness.–Christine)

Even though you are fully capable of being on the Lightworker stage waiting for the spotlight to find you, some of you have decided the stage is too frightening and have moved behind the curtain. That is your choice – not a choice created by the Universes – but by you. For you are a Lightworker.

Lightworkers who need proof will probably never receive it. Self-worth is generated from within. We cannot give it to you, nor can anyone else.

We have stated on several occasions that you would be clearing your most difficult pieces before transitioning into the 4th and beyond dimensions. And so it is. Spiritually, physically and intellectually you may be excited to move to other dimensions – yet your fears limit your options.

You would not be interested in exploring new earth materials if you were not a Lightworker/Wayshower/Starseed or whatever you wish to label those of you introducing earth to an age of joy and love.

It is your need to feel worth-less or unworthy that is forcing you from the stage of Lightworker fame.

Many of you state that you do not feel anything or that your life is just the same. Does that not sound like a child during summer vacation whining that life is boring? And as a parent do you not laugh at such statements and suggest several activities your child might enjoy? You are now the adult.

Then there are those of you who claim that you are just not clear enough, strong enough or good enough to be a spiritual leader. That somehow everyone “out there” is bigger, better and stronger. Shades of Old Age comparisons that hold no validity in this New Age.

You are not like anyone else – other than you are transitioning into love and joy. Your path is unique. To compare yourself to another Lightworker and their skills or sensations is like comparing apples to oranges. You are different for a reason. If all Lightworkers were the same, how could this transition expand beyond a small group of like-minded, like-acting, like-skilled individuals?

There is no time for modesty, fear of your power or an unwillingness to be a Lightworker –  if that is what your heart draws you to. In past lives, you could shirk the game plan created by you before you entered earth knowing that you could fulfill that obligation to yourself at a later time.

Such is not the case in this transition. Each of you is an important thread in this transition tapestry.

You may feel as if you have nothing to contribute. Quite frankly, if you allow that belief to penetrate your being – you do not. And if that is what you wish to continue to believe, it is indeed time for you to move behind the curtain and allow someone who believes in themselves to move center stage.

No one is going to cajole you into your role. No one is going to babysit you as you moan and groan about how you wish to participate, but you cannot because of this or that. No one has time to hold your hand as you whimper about how unqualified you are.

This is the time to accept your full power. That does not necessarily mean you will be a media star. Merely that you claim your power in whatever form gives you joy. And the first step in claiming your power is believing with every fiber of your being that you are a Lightworker. That is the energy we are sending this week. (By “energy,” they mean message, idea, truth, consciousness.–Christine)

For some that means a physical manifestation of something you have longed for. For others it is the knowingness deep within your being that you are a Lightworker with a role to play in this wondrous transition – a role you created before your entrance on earth.

Perhaps you are of the group who brought the New Age to earth. You have since shifted roles into beaming the joy of this transition to others. Meaning that not only must you accept that you are a Lightworker, you must display that you are in whatever way your inner-being dictates – whatever gives you joy, from growing vegetables to becoming a media star.

You are who you are – as you created yourself before entering earth in this lifetime. Perhaps you are shy. That is entirely acceptable and exactly what you wish to be. But in your shyness you still will radiate the light of a Lightworker – if you accept your worthiness. This is not the Age to hide under a basket in fear or pain. But instead to shine your light in whatever fashion feels most joyful. You never have to be center stage – but you do need to accept that you have a place on stage before you can be a true Lightworker.

You do not need to channel, heal the sick, write books, make presentations, change the world, transport yourself to other parts of the Universes or create a new tool to be a Lightworker. You merely need to accept that you are a Lightworker and that you will move into your role – whatever that role is – when it is your time to do so.

Stop whining. Stop comparing yourself to others. Stop making excuses for why you cannot be a Lightworker. Stop throwing up your hands in disgust because all of this is a hoax – and move to your place on stage. Your co-Lightworkers are moving toward their joy and have no need to care take you. Any more than you have a need to care take others.

You are a Lightworker of the greatest magnitude merely waiting for your role to begin. So be it. Amen.”–Channeled by Brenda Hoffman, January 16, 2013

I really resonate with what Brenda has channeled. I do feel I am in a different place, a better place, than last year (and I literally, physically am in a different place). Besides continuing my work with this blog and expanding my readership, I have also been led (by what’s been happening in my life and from inner guidance) to create a new project, to help young people in a particular way, and I’ll be sharing my new project with you in several weeks time, after it is created. (Sharing this with you will push me to create it sooner, rather than later…)

If you feel that not much has changed in your life, unless you take the necessary steps, unless you step into your higher purpose fully, your world will remain much the same, today will be very much like yesterday, and tomorrow will be very much like today. And unless sufficient numbers of us make significant changes in our lives, the world will pretty much look the same.

You probably already know what you need to do; you’ve been wanting to make a difference in certain areas of your life for some time now. It’s just that something has prevented you from taking the necessary steps. Well, the timing is right to begin now!

I know it can be very scary. I’ve been there and I wrote about the changes I made, and what helped me make them, in my memoir on reconnecting titled, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening. (These experiences are what my how-to eBook is based on.)

There is so much more support now available to help you take those necessary steps. Furthermore, a lot of the hyped-up, false, distracting information put out by those seeking to dis-empower you and keep you wanting and waiting for some savior(s) to do it for you has been exposed. As I’ve written in last week’s blog post (about 2013 being the year of great potential), if you seek the light (by “light” I mean your higher self, your connection with Source) and muster up the courage to align your life with that light, you will be supported by the Universe, you will receive guidance when you need it, you will get clearer, and it will get easier for you. And over time you will be able to fulfill your potential (meaning, you will be able to fulfill your unique role, the role your higher self signed up for before you incarnated in this lifetime). I hold you in my heart and wish you many blessings on your path!

I dropped off my teenagers at the San Francisco airport the other day. They are visiting their Dad (who is working in Germany for the next year) and their Oma and Opa for the Christmas holidays. After we checked their luggage and they got into the security line, we said goodbye and I left. The security line was as far as far as I could physically go, and they were big girls now, one would turn 15 at the end of March and the other 18 next month.

Five minutes from my house I got a phone call from the younger one, telling me that their flight was delayed by over two hours, which meant that they would not make their connecting flight from L.A. to Munich. I instructed her to go talk to an airline representative right away, to let them know that they would miss their flight. I assured her that the airline would get them to Munich; there were other flights flying out to L.A. all the time.

A few minutes later she let me know that she was talking with customer service. Some time later she called to let me know that they were told they could possibly get on a direct flight to Munich, if they got to the right gate fast (and it might already be too late), but that they were already given wrong directions twice, and what should they do? I said to go for it, get the right directions and get over to the right gate–fast. And most likely, the right gate was in the International terminal at the beginning of the airport.

“Is that all you have to say?” she asked in an annoyed tone (as if I had said something wrong).

“Congratulations on negotiating the problem well,” I said, but I’m not sure how much of that she heard, as she had hung up on me at that point. And then neither one answered any further texts or calls from me. How was I supposed to know what flight they were or were not getting on? I had to call the airline to find out that indeed, both of them were going to be on the direct flight to Munich. I could then let their Dad know the flight number and when to expect them.

In the end, they got to Munich five minutes before their original flight, even though they had been given “wrong directions” that made them “go through security four times.” The older one was so frustrated with the whole experience she was about to cry.

I’m not writing this blog post to share the crazy whims of teenagers (although that can be amusing at times), but because I was “urged from within” to share it, because it’s a good example of what is happening in the larger world at this time. (And if you re-read this blog post, you’ll get the deeper message within it, which has to do with the great shift in consciousness and the “tipping point” that occurred yesterday, December 21, 2012.)

I texted the following message to my teenage daughters: “If a problem occurs, it means there must be a solution already available, and all you have to do is CALMLY look for the solution.”

The message to light-workers and other adults is this: If a problem occurs, it means your higher self had planned it and also that your higher self has the answers–if you connect within and search for the answers.

Another relevant and important idea I wish to share here has to do with a blog post I had written a few weeks ago that urged the importance of coming from Creation mode rather than survival mode, more and more. The important concept to grasp here (that will bring the “New World” into being) is this: If you are feeling any sort of doubt or panic around some issue or some thing, that’s a clue that you are NOT coming from Creation. So get yourself back into creation mode!

Finally, I want to share a brilliant message from Geoffrey Hoppe’s latest “Shaumbra Monthly” newsletter.

“When you wake up on December 22 and realize that it’s just another day on planet Earth, take a deep breath instead of a deep sigh. Go inside yourself for a moment. Remember that you brought all of these energies of personal change into your life, and your life is in the process of making a huge shift into embodied, conscious spirit. Take a look at how far you’ve come these past 10 – 20 years, then thank yourself for making it (mostly) intact to the marker date of December 22. Put aside what’s going on in the outer world, and then get ready for a series of quantum transformations that begin to unfold in your life. You see, it never was about what was going to happen on December 21. It’s always been about what was going to happen AFTER this historic marker.”

Now that the famous December 21, 2012 solstice is behind us, we can let go of the “end of the world” distractions and get to work on the real things that matter, that need to be done, that require changing your life from the inside out.

To receive good directions for the “inner work” we’re being called to do, please click the following link and consider reading the two books I’ve written. The memoir (hardcover) is an account of my reconnecting experience, and the eBook contains how-to instructions, as well as other helpful information.

Connecting with your Higher Self and Living From Creation
