I’ve been redoing my website in my spare time for a long time! I love it. It is an art project. My desire is to create a thing of beauty, saturated with the energy of heaven, the angels, and nature, while at the same time making my products and classes available much more easily than they are now. It is a labor of love. My inner artist loves designing it… most of the time!
Today the developmental site crashed. That’s not so enjoyable! I’ve been eating up disc space with all the photos and products and there have been issues with backup programs and plugins clashing – all things that hopefully many of you won’t have to ever deal with. It does get frustrating at times.
iTryiSurvive kicked in. “I have to get this done! I want to create more books. If this keeps messing up I’ll never have a life!” and on we go. I started to search for solutions. There are a million more things I want to create in life beyond this. Somehow when things go wrong I forget how much I really enjoy the creative journey. At the moment I’m waiting on customer service. I set today aside to work on the site. God had other plans!
So be it. iLive-iLove-iCreate kicks in. “Ok, so my day isn’t working as planned. God always knows better. It is a beautiful day! I’ll get the newsletter done earlier. I may even have time to read a little. I’ll get sleep tonight and the next few days will flow more easily. Well, how about that! God really does know better and want me to have a gentler experience of life.
I am imagining the site coming back up a the perfect time. In the meanwhile I’ll do the newsletter and enjoy my day.”
Suddenly I’m in a great mood again. iTryiSurvive never really made anyone happy!
Here are a few tips to live with iLive-iLove-iCreate running in your mind… and I’m still giggling about the angels inventing apps!
1. If you’re not happy, you’re not running iLive-iLove-iCreate
If I’m not happy – in iLive-iLove mode – I know I’m not creating. I’m moaning instead about something I created in the past that has just appeared in my life now, or I’m moaning about some life circumstance that is actually trying to help me, but doesn’t look the way I want.
In any case, I start to refocus on what I want once again. I jokingly pray, “Dear God, you know what you’re doing!” I spend a few seconds focusing on what it would feel like to have what I want then I let it go and focus with gratitude and love on the day in front of me.
Once we start the “app” by focusing on our creations with love, it runs in the background and keeps running if we keep living while loving our lives!
2. Think about your dreams with love and anticipation.
The angels often say that when you think about your dreams like a child looking forward to Christmas, then you are in the right energy. Fantasize, intend, imagine. Get juicy! Don’t let the voices that say, “How can you? You can’t? You don’t deserve?” etc. distract you.
Forget worrying about blocks, and just refocus. Joy will override resignation if you allow it.
3. Enjoy your day
The angels remind me so often. The universe runs without my input. My heart beats without my input. The most amazing things in my life have occurred without me figuring out how to make them happen. My dearest friends showed up when I least expected them.
When we are in a space of love and gratitude (iLive-iLove), we are allowing our creations to unfold without getting in the way.
When you hit Enter on the computer, you don’t wonder if the bits are going to show a new page. You just trust they will! When you imagine your dreams with love, then just “iLive-iLove” you really do “iCreate!”
Have a fantastic week playing with the unbounded, unlimited universe! Miracles really do happen when we live and love… That’s when we truly create!
