Pay Attention to Your Ideas
If you have been following my blog this month, you may have noticed that I participated in the Ultimate Blog Challenge, where the challenge was to blog every day consistently. It was so much fun, and it really has confirmed my love of writing! Part of my month of blogging daily, I came up with an idea to post ten days of Angel Card Readings. Angel Cards always inspire me and I thought it would be a great way to move through ten days with topics galore! What I didn’t realize was that it actually turned into a brilliant idea – so many readers enjoyed the daily messages of inspiration that I have created a daily email subscription for the Angel messages. The Angel messages don’t have to stop, they can now be delivered to the inbox of whomever wants them.
While divinely selecting cards from the stack, one card continued to surface. Now, I couldn’t post five days with the same message now could I? So that’s why I wanted to share with you the card that kept appearing. It wanted to be heard so loud and clear that I decided to inform you of the message that I am so compelled to share.
The card that kept showing up was the Crown Chakra card.
The message is all about paying attention to your ideas. Where do ideas come from?
Are they thoughts that have been in the deep recesses of our mind, or are they coming from the creative intelligence of the Universe? To me, where they come from isn’t as important as the fact that the idea is appearing. It’s good practice to sit with this new idea for a little while, ask your body how it feels about it and journal the thoughts, emotions and fears that you may be experiencing. You wouldn’t want fear to keep you from acting upon a million dollar idea, would you?
My suggestion is to keep a journal with you at all times. You never know when a fleeting thought or inspiration may dance across mind. If you don’t have time to consider it at the moment, at least if you have written it down, you will be able to access it at a more convenient time. I can’t tell you all of the ideas and thoughts I have had in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep, only to be lost by daybreak because I didn’t have a notebook by my bed. I now, keep a notebook and a pen on my nightstand, because you never know if one of these ideas is an idea of a lifetime!
Writing and journaling certainly can spark ideas. One of my favorite books is, “The Artist’s Way”, by Julia Cameron. In the book the author suggests writing three pages of “Morning Pages” every day. It’s where you write whatever comes into your mind, even if it doesn’t make sense. It could sound like a lot of rambling, but what it does is similar to meditation. It clears the gunk, the junk, and the monkey mind, so you have more clarity and creativity throughout the day. When you clear the mind junk, ideas and inspirations begin to surface!
If you are facing challenges or problems in which you don’t know what the solution is, keep in mind that whenever there is a problem, there exists a solution. The Universe knows the solution, and it will deliver it to you when you are clear enough to receive it. I guarantee that you will absolutely love doing the morning pages, I can’t wait to hear what ideas surface for you!
To Your Success!
