‘Your work is to go forth into this physical environment looking for things that are a vibrational match to joy, connecting to Source Energy, and then following with the inspired action.’ ~ Abraham
Words to live by, and inspired action is certainly a wonderful thing ~ it’s filled with exhilarating energy, enthusiasm, excitement and passion. One rarely doubts oneself when in the throws of inspired action, but in reading the above quote my thoughts turned to what action feels like when it is not so inspired ~ when it’s full of doubt, anxiety or fear … when you find yourself asking: Can I do it? Should I do it? Is it the right thing to do? What if I fail? What if I can’t do it! You want to step forward, but feel conflicted and overwhelmed.
We all know when we take action amazing things happen, but it takes courage when we are filled with trepidation. There are many positive ways to overcome it, but one of the easiest and quickest ways is to approach that step forward with a spirit of generosity and giving. We can overcome so much when we go into giving mode ~ suddenly we stop thinking about how hard it is, and instead, realise how good it feels.
Being a giver is the easiest thing in the world, and it not only always succeeds, it makes most of us very happy. So if you ever find yourself feeling doubtful as to whether you can or can’t do something, open your generous heart and you will be just fine. Stepping up in the spirit of helping others is the best way to overcome your fears. And as well as making yourself and others feeling extraordinarily good, your self-worth will hugely expand ~ that is the power of giving.
As Winston Churchill said, ‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.’ In the end, it is in giving that we receive, for it is then that we receive the greatest joy.
