THE SEDUCTIVE WAYS OF THE DEVIL OUTSIDE
If you think that doing the WORK, the real work, which is of course and can only be the INNER work, the journaling, the going within, the connecting, to higher source and soul, is just about writing down your goals, or about ‘manifesting’, or about clearing your head or something, you’re missing the main point.
The primary reason your inner work MUST be a daily practice, is to keep you connected to the truth, and to assist you to remain strong enough to resist the temptation, the seductive lure, of the devil outside of you.
That the pathway to fame, or fortune, or glory, or even just HAPPINESS, is one that can only be found by happening across the right process, or plan, or how.
“How do I get rich?”
“How do I build my following?”
“How do I have more people like me, love me, want me?!”
“How do I get HOT?”
“How do I get LOVED?”
“How do I live my DESTINY?”
“How do I JUST get to that next level, that extra piece of income, or validation, or so-called security?”
When you’re not connecting DAILY to your highest self, your soul, your deep intuitive wisdom, then what HAPPENS, is you fall prey to every idea, every one, and every thing, on the internet, or indeed anywhere.
Telling you –
Whispering to you –
SEDUCING you, with the idea that –
There is a magic bullet solution.
Or a right way that you gotta figure out.
Or that if you would just do it like THIS person, or THAT person.
“Maybe I need to improve my YouTube”
“Maybe I need to be more strict with my selling”
“Maybe I need a more organised funnel”
“Maybe I need to do a course to grow my Instagram following”
“Maybe I need to get on more interviews”
“Maybe I need better headshots, or to finally fix up my website; that’s it!”
And if you’re not careful –
You will literally give your LIFE, looking for this missing link.
When the whole damn time the missing link was YOU. You, claiming what is rightfully yours. Deciding FUCK the how. It’s just going to happen. BECAUSE I DECIDED. And then you CREATE it, in your mind, that’s how it works.
Your INNER work practice is what keeps you strong, keeps you in check, keeps you connected to where success COMES from.
I’m as bad as anybody, even after all these years and all that I HAVE created, at being pulled into ideas that if I ‘just did this one thing’ …
I can let it distract me
Take my time, and my team’s
Even consume me!
When I’m not being honest with myself in my inner practice.
And then I go back within, I take the time to go ALL the way in, and I ask, today for example, a question, like this:
“Intuition, what do you have to say to me today?
What am I to focus on, for fame, for impacting the millions I know I came here to impact, and also for stepping deeper into true love?”
Is there anything I need to do …?”
Invariably, the answer does NOT fucking come back with ‘do an Instagram course’, or ‘be on more podcasts’, or ‘clean up your YouTube’, or indeed do ANYTHING, relevant to business, or money, or love. #shocker
Invariably, the answer comes back the only way I always knew it WOULD.
“Stay the course. Keep showing up. Do as your soul SAYS”
Yes. It can be infuriating at times. But actually –
There is nothing I need to do –
I already knew this …
But when I don’t connect FULLY, the many many seductions from NOT in and of me pull me, draw at me, cajole me, tempt me, and SWAY ME FROM MY PATH.
I become LESS of me –
As I seek to follow commands from OUTSIDE of me.
And if I were to continue to do that, I know full well I would NEVER reach what’s in me.
It will happen, the same way it ALWAYS happens. Because I ignore EVERYTHING from outside of me, and I BACK MYSELF IN BEING FULLY ME, and in claiming, on repeat, THROUGH said inner work, that it is ‘done’.
I look back –
And I remind myself that everything. EVERYTHING I have ever achieved has been because I DECIDED for it to, and I locked it in.
THAT’S THE WHOLE STORY.
Even though with EACH thing, I first wasted however fucking long trying to find the right way to do it, or to get there. Until I eventually cracked it and just decided it had to BE.
AND SO IT WAS.
THERE’S NO OTHER WAY.
YOU KNOW THIS.
There is not a single.fucking.thing. which has come about because of finding the right STRATEGY, figuring out the ‘how’, following a system. That’s not how it works. You KNOW this.
The answer is to DECIDE. To decide to CLAIM YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE NOW. To decide that YES, what you feel inside of you is real. To decide that it GETS TO HAPPEN BECAUSE IT’S MEANT TO, and the only thing you need to DO, is be BRAVE enough to be guided by what’s inside, and then to show up for your content, your art, your soul, or whatever the damn thing IS.
But you can’t and WON’T be brave enough, you won’t be EQUIPPED to be, if you don’t take the damn time each day to connect INTO this truth.
The path of seduction is slippery, it’s insidious, you won’t notice it.
You’ll console yourself with ideas that you’re doing shit, so you must be getting somewhere.
And maybe you’ll even spend a lot of money learning from people who tell you The Things to Do to Achieve The Things.
But let’s get fucking real –
The whole entire time –
There’s a sinking in your stomach –
Fear gripping you –
Anxiety rising –
All things you do not FEEL, when you’re following FLOW, and SOUL, and doing what you are MEANT to damn well be doing.
Look back to the times when it’s just WORKED –
Where magic HAPPENED –
Where it rained from the SKIES –
And you just KNEW.
It was BECAUSE YOU SAID FUCK.THIS.SHIT.
Fuck the HOW.
I don’t CARE.
And you let go of anything except for that this is what will BE.
QUIT PRETENDING YOU DON’T KNOW.
If you ASK it, your higher self will tell you EVERYTHING.
Intuition, what do you have to say to me today?
“Well, how about this –
There’s no point going around looking for a magic bullet fucking solution –
If you refuse to believe in magic”
Don’t forget –
Life is Now. Press Play.
