Find your tribe!
20 seconds of courage!
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.” ~ Joseph Campbell.
What do these comments have in common? They are truly interconnected and will get you from where you are to where you want to be.
Speaking from experience, if you do “follow your bliss” and pay attention to when you truly feel energized, sparked, or inspired, you do set yourself in motion on a path that vibrates and jives with your frequency. Ideas, conversations, and connections begin happening more often when you are in “the zone”, that frequency in which you’re truly buzzing with excitement about a connection or idea.
However, it is what you do with these signals, the 20 seconds of courage you launch, and what action you take, that sets you on a path in which more doors will open, more people will come into your life, and more ideas will sprout. What you think about, you will bring about, from dream to reality. I liken this energy to a bridge that will connect an idea from the realm of the imagination into the realm we live in and call reality.
When we tap into that channel of energy, that zone, “the universe will correspond to the nature of your song.” ~ Reverend Michael Beckwith
Take for example, as a new mama, I wanted to find my tribe and connect with other mothers that have similar life values in parenting, health and attitude. I was going to playgrounds and taking my daughter out hiking or to a zoo every week. It was important to be outside, in nature if possible, going on adventures and meeting other people. My radar was always on and my intention was always to connect with some other cool moms.
I took my daughter’s lead and noticed when she really enjoyed playing with another little person. I’d start chatting with the parent, usually a mom, and see if we had a good connection. If I felt in my gut that this meeting was kismet, I took that 20 seconds of courage and asked for the mom’s number and offered an invitation to connect again for a play date.
Great relationships and experiences have since bloomed for us all. Plus leading by example supports our daughter’s growth. In addition, we share with her life philosophies to help her navigate life as she matures.
We do not propel into the future without first taking a leap. As a species, we thrive on connectivity. In reflection of current times, now more than ever, it’s important to reach out and cultivate relationships. Build your tribe!
