On this day 7 years ago I had my very first book signing as a self published author! Wow! 😳
I was soooooo nervous!
I guess because (I thought) the pocket-sized manual I’d created was too short! 🤦🏼♂️ But too short for who? 🧐 🤦🏼♂️ Little did I know that first released book would go on to become the first of several books published in the Get In The Flow Series (all available on Amazon.com by the way). 😊
Now, seven years later, and the author of 10 publications to include research, books, journals, and also my memoir, I realize publishing my first book was just the beginning of what would become my “new normal.”
✅ A normal that included publishing something almost EVERY year.
✅ A new normal of reaching readers across the globe.
✅ A new normal of speaking to diverse audiences not only about “getting in the flow of life,” but also about the importance of moving and living authentically through the trials AND
triumphs of life.
I had no idea I would become a writer and speaker full time. At least not this soon. I mean it was a goal but I’m not sure I actually believed (at the time) I’d accomplish it! Real talk. 💯 Hec, I really didn’t have that much confidence in my skill and craft at the time. Writing is something I fell upon, literally. I was a C(-) student in HS! 😯
I simply had a message God gave me and I was moving in obedience in delivering it. That’s it! FrFr! 💯
Now, seven years later, I smile because I understand the importance of moving forward and ALWAYS moving in OBEDIENCE. Sometimes I write things I don’t even understand until I share the message and someone says, “that was just for me, thank you.”
Other times I’m writing something that’s clearly for “my” ears and my mind’s understanding. Most times after I write, I glance back and realize God took the pen and simply used my hand as the tool to craft God’s message.
I’m grateful to say the least. 💯
And now as I am at another crossroad in my life, I realize even today that the seven-year mark is truly significant. Honestly I hadn’t even thought about it before this very moment. Tonight when I couldn’t sleep.
This upcoming week is one of the biggest weeks of my life as it relates to writing, creating, and my destiny. I’m grateful the universe vibratd this to my attention, finally. Now I can go to sleep. Smile. I’m grateful I was open to receive (another lesson for another day. But in the mean time check out my book “Manifest Your Best Life” for info on receiving the manifestations). 😉
I don’t know about you, but when I’m about to experience MAJOR change, like a MAJOR SHIFT in my life, I get a bit anxious. Real Talk. 💯 If I’m not carful, I will get distracted. I almost did tonight. 🤔 Looking at one thing and thinking that’s the shift when all along that’s actually a #distraction. It’s taken me a long time and truly concerted effort to hone in on what’s really going on (with me) and within the universe. Some will get it. Some may not (right now). And that’s ok too. 👌🏼
I digress. 🤔
I share ALL of this info for a few reasons.
💫 One, because I wanted to share my experience of writing and the point of linear reference (7-years) the universe brought to my attention this morning.
💫💫 And two, to demonstrate what happens when we are able to lift the veil, adjust our lenses, and get out of our own way. 💯
💫💫💫 So many times in my past I’ve been guilty of playing the victim asking myself “why is this happening to me, like RIGHT NOW?” Not looking at the #individual and #universal shift taking place both in and around me; respectively. Often times it’s not until we step out of the victim mentality, step out of ourselves, and observe ourself as the “Victor,” the “orchestrator” if you will, of our life, that we are able to sit back and see the universal collective vibration taking place.
This may be a lot for some. I get it. I really do.🤷🏼♂️
But what I want to encourage you to do today and this week (as we enter into a new dimension and exit the most Holiest ⛪️ Week of the year for some) is to TAKE INVENTORY of what’s going on in your life.
Reflect on the first quarter of 2021, reflect on the last week in March, and the first week in April. Take yourself OUT of the driver seat and try to sit in the passenger seat and watch yourself as the driver.
❤️ What do you see?
❤️ What have YOU created?
❤️ What turns have you made and are you making (left, right, reverse)?
❤️❤️❤️And, where do you need to pump the brakes, stop the car, and get out? Start again?
Remember, YOU are in control. YOU are the driver! But sometimes, YOU have to step out of that control seat and observe yourself to more clearly define where YOU ARE GOING.
💡 💡 Abraham-Hicks says it best, “You can’t get there from there.” Meaning the chaos is too much where you are. Step out of the chaos and observe. Then, decide if you’ll jump back in and keep going, or even steer in a NEW, different direction.
🗣🗣🗣🗣🗣YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE Beloved!!! Remember this!!! 🗣🗣🗣🗣🗣
I’ve got other news for you too, the seven year cycle is OVER. It’s up to YOU whether you want to repeat the same cycle for another 7 years or start over with year 8; which by the way is the number of #newbeginnings. #CatchThat
I personally decided to 🗣START OVER! RESET. PeriodT.
My new children’s book comes out in less than sixty days! I’m grateful.
I truly hope this message resonates for you, for someone in your circle. I hope it helps you MAKE a decision whether to stay or go. To be willing get uncomfortable in the unknown or remain in chaos and mediocrity. 👎🏼
I hope this message confirms your thinking and realization that:
👉🏼 YOU ARE WORTHY.
👉🏼 You are worthy of new beginnings.
👉🏼 You are worthy of closing that chapter and never looking back other than a point of past reference.
👉🏼 You are worthy of creating YOUR book and telling YOUR story the way YOU decide.
After all, YOU are the AUTHOR. 😊
I Love ❤️ You. I’m Rooting for YOU. Your Creator Loves ❤️ You. Your Creator is Rooting for You. 👏🏼 👏🏼
❤️ 🌟 YOU are made perfectly and in Your Creators Image!!! Believe and KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that Your Creator is in your corner. As am I! Make us proud! 😊👊🏼👊🏼
Good Morning! Happy Monday Beautifuls!!! 😊
Be Blessed, ~Dr. Elijah ✌🏼❤️💫
PS Yes, I had hair and somewhat of a hairline seven years ago! 😂😂😂
🗣 BE GREAT!!! 🗣
