Sometimes the best way to describe something is through a story.
I was absolutely struck by this story and the rainmaker’s secret. What would it be like to be so in tune with my purpose that I could simply show up? The more I thought about this idea, the more I realized that I have a secret of my own.
My true purpose in life is to be a healer, although I don’t actually heal anyone. I’m simply attuned to the people who are ready to heal. I can sense where in their body-mind-spirit energy is blocked or stagnant. I connect with their impulse to open and release, giving a gentle nudge with my hands, intention, words, breath – and healing happens. It’s absolutely wonderful and effortless when it happens this way.
I haven’t always been so in tune with myself. There have been many times in my life when I found myself dancing my feet off, trying to make it rain. And, no rain came. When I reflect on those times, I realize that I had pushed myself in a particular direction, rather than dancing lightly along the path. That happens to me still, but luckily not as often.
Where have you been stomping your feet and shaking your rattle, trying hard to make something happen? What if instead… you opened your senses, softened your approach, and allowed yourself to move in the direction of your intuition? What if instead of pushing to make that sale, you were simply there with an attractive proposal when the buyer was ready? Or, what if instead of working overtime to teach a subject, you were in place to provide just the right stimulus when learning is ready to happen? Oh, the possibilities are fun to consider!
