If sparks ignite, why am I stuck?

I just got sparked! Just proclaiming that statement has a ring of excitement.  Imagine seeing a jolt of spark or lightening connecting us and causing our bodies to jump in response!

I got sparked

Although the beginning of the sparked story can be a thriller, it’s what happens next that takes us to the really good stuff.  It’s what happens next that is the difference between knowing we got sparked to being with the spark and moving to sparked or inspired doing.

Our response to getting sparked determines if we unlock the intention of the spark.

It may take a minute to recognize our spark language.  Everyone has his or her own type.  It’s the way life gets our attention.  Once we move from realizing synchronicity is not random and deja vous moments could be our current self being sparked by a gift from our future self, we tune into our spark language.

Tuning into our sparked language allows us to engage more with the sparks. And yet there is more to the spark.  Your spark introduces you to its Purpose Partner–nudges.

Nudges are the gentle prods and push that happen after we are sparked.  Sparks are disruptive and ignite something inside and nudges inform us by moving us into the direction of the intention of the spark.

Sparks ignite and are disruptive and nudges allow us to be present with the nature of the spark.  Nudges require presence and awareness to recognize them.

Here is where things get juicy. Without responding to our spark with inspired action that supports the direction of the spark, the spark will fizzle out.

Here are three keys to unlock following your sparks:

  • Sparks may seem positive or negative to you but they are always disruptive.  The nature of the spark is to disrupt a pattern that ignites something within us.
  • Sparks require responses in order to sustain the spark.  Acknowledging the spark is a great response if you don’t know what action to take.  Acknowledgment is a first and powerful action step.
  • Nudges require presence and awareness.  Set an intention to understand your spark.  Respond to the soft pushes that pull you in different or unfamiliar directions.  The spark is here to change and shift us towards new possibilities on our journey to our highest reality.

One of the biggest reasons we may be stuck after being sparked is because we perceive the requirements to align with it as fearful, nonsensical or misaligned with our current path.  Consider that we first meet the spark with our current understanding and wisdom.  Shifting our mindset that sparks gift us with changes that are for us allows us to respond with the sparks and nudges instead of resisting them.

Spark Notes: Purpose Surprises!

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2018!

Do you remember the viral picture of the kitten looking into the mirror and seeing a lion? Great picture!  People resonate with of possibility.  To me it reflects what I am learning about purpose–it surprises!

kitten_Lion_Purpose

The difference between the kitten and the lion is its path to purpose!  This is the most simplistic explanation of the path to purpose.  It is on your path to purpose that you will be surprised at the shifts and changes required to transform from your right now to your future self.

One of the best teachers of this concept is Derek Rydall in his book and programs The Law of Emergence.   He uses the acorn and oak tree as an analogy of our potential.  Every acorn has the possibility within it to become a mighty oak tree.

What lives between the acorn and the oak tree is its path to purpose and all of the surprises, shifts, growth spurts, pruning and flourishing.  Can you imagine the surprise and delight of the acorn when it is just following its purpose path and catches a glimpse of its transformation to the oak tree?

Can you imagine the surprise of the kitten who one day roars and never experienced a roar before?  That same surprise and delight happens when we take inspired action just because we recognize the nudge and it feels right.   Before we know it,  we’re behaving like our future self because it was always in us.

Spark Notes: Intend Purpose!

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2018!

Intend Purpose!  Start with your intention to have purpose experiences in 2018.

When I completed my Unlock! Me Review, it became wonderfully apparent that what we intend is powerful.  I know this and yet I had a deeper experience of this just watching how my year unfolded.  When my intentions and words, what I spoke, were in alignment, the miraculous occurred!

Join me in intending purpose without an expectation of what it will look like. Just that you, me and all the Purpose Peeps (everyone) continues the path to purpose into 2018. Period. That is enough.

One of our Purpose Peeps asked how to get started, how to align with purpose.  My response is to intend purpose.  Expect purpose. Expect to have your personal experience with purpose. Expect to have purpose continue to unfold in your life this year. Expect for your experience to be different because you are not the same as this time last year. Expect to be aligned with resources to build in your awareness and experiences.  Then, breathe, watch and respond with inspired action.

Spark Notes: Take In Your Views

Introducing #SparkNotes, short notes to spark conversations within yourself and with others!

Spark_Note_Dec9.jpg

Today, I am enjoying an early snow fall, unexpected, vibrant and fresh. I had many plans for today, some altered by the weather, some could fill in the gaps on my growing to do list.  And yet, I heard a small voice beacon me to, “take in the view, this is for YOU.”

Take in the view. This is for YOU.

Wow! I was about to rush past a miracle that presented itself just to be appreciated and witnessed.  The weather will change.  The snow will melt shortly.  But for this moment, I witnessed life, fresh, covered anew, in a quiet, still and untouched beauty.

Life is an amazing teacher when we spend time to cultivate a relationship.  Just because life is happening and the clock continues does not mean we are in relationship and communing with it.

The next time you experience a prompt to take in the view, consider it may be an invitation to sit and have a round table experience between you, life & purpose.  Just as I type these words, I saw a strong burst of snow with a gust of wind when I thought the snow ended.  Maybe life is saying, “yes, share that.”

Your Spark Notes Are Noteworthy

 

Spark_Notes_Dec8

You know how you have those good days, moments that you seem to be in flow? Or, you have an aha moment or moment of clarity when life clicks?  It is in these moments that we catch a glimpse of something bigger, something greater operating in our life.

As amazing as these moments are, they are more.  They are like breadcrumbs to follow to lead us to our optimum design or blueprint.

It’s like we have glimpses of the potential of our life.

Notice when and where your spark moments occur.  What are you doing? Who are you with? These are all clues to you. To begin your awareness process, give attention to these events.  Jot them down in your journal.  What we give attention to grows!

If you are aware of these spark moments, you can begin to practice with what you are uncovering and learning.  Spend time with the people who spark you, in the environments that spark you doing the things that spark you.  Practice brings clarity.

If you are in the mastery process of spark moments and are intentionally crafting spark moments, building spark communities and advancing the purpose or spark movement, remember mastery takes 10,000 hours of intentional practice. We’ve got lots to learn and take in and explore! Enjoy!
