Seek Inspiration


Unstuck and Moving Forward

What accomplishment seems just out of reach in your life? Where do you feel stuck and frustrated?

We all get to a place where we've just had enough. Nothing seems to flow. Things feel stuck and heavy and nothing seems to go our way.

Do not lose heart. This article offers three easy steps you can take to move forward with inspired action.

Three Simple Steps For Inspired Action

1. Be open for inspiration

2. Be ready to take action

3. Be determined and committed

You Do Not Have Because You Do Not Ask


Ask For Guidance

The first step for taking inspired action is to ask for inspiration. I had a dream recently, in which I was clearly told, "You do not have, because you do not ask." I awoke from that dream feeling deeply moved. As a result, I have begun asking for inspiration. And when I remember to ask, I always receive guidance.

Whether you believe in God, or Divine Guidance, intuition, or just trusting your gut instincts, there is something for each of us, that speaks to us in a small still voice. You can call it whatever you like.

You can call on that voice whenever you seek inspiration. Whether it is with a writing project, a relationship, your health; whatever issue or event in your life, you can seek and receive inspiration.

All you have to do is ask.

Do Something


Move Forward Boldly

When inspiration hits, move. Move in the direction you've been given. Whether it's the words to a song you want to write, the name of a person keeps coming to mind, or you get a feeling that you need to throw something away.

Don't sit there analyzing, thinking and pondering. Get up. Move forward. Do Something. Every action you take puts forth positive energy and attracts a result. You have asked for and received guidance. Now put it to work.

Nothing will change until you decide to act. Ask the Universe (or God, or Goddess, or your Highest Self) to direct your progress. Open yourself to the unlimited potential of the universe and accept that you are moving in an inspired direction.

Release your expectations about the exact outcome of whatever situation you are working with. Allow things to unfold naturally, through the limitless abundance of the universe. Accept that once you begin moving in an inspired direction, everything will work out for you. Enjoy being in the flow of inspiration.

Commitment, Dedication, Determination


Don't Procrastinate

You've received inspiration. You've started moving forward. Now, keep at it, whatever it is that you desire. It doesn't matter if you want to do well at work, want to be a better partner or parent, want to change the world, whatever your goal is, you must be determined and committed to your own success.

No one else cares as much about it as you do. This is your goal, your dream, your purpose. You asked for and received inspiration. You even started down the path. But the truth is, no one else really cares. Everyone else on the planet is currently focusing on their own truth. It is up to you to stick with it, to continue on past the boredom, through the difficulty and on to success. Only you can cause your success. Only you are responsible for your failure.

For inspired action to come to fruition, you must be committed to seeing it through. You must decide for yourself that your goal or dream or purpose is important enough to make sacrifices for. You are the only one who can decide.

Each day, when you step into the world, ask again for inspiration. Listen to the small still voice. Take some action toward your dream. Don't give up. And then, the next day, begin again.

You have an opportunity every day to create success. It only takes three easy steps. Ask for inspiration. Every single day, ask for your path to be inspired. Ask for your words and your works to be inspired. Ask that the people you meet be inspired. Take action. Speak the words you feel inspired to speak. Do the things you feel led to do. Talk to, smile at and serve the people you meet. And never, ever give up.

Do not lose heart in doing good, for in due time, you will reap a harvest.

Namaste, friends
